NATO Edges Closer to War on Syria

by Stephen Lendman

Waging war is easy. Instigate provocative incidents. Blame them on targeted countries. False flags work as planned. So do Big Lies repeated enough times to get most people to believe them.

Stoking fear is a common thread. So is claiming good v. evil. Mix well with misinformation and duplicity. Sun Tzu was right saying wars depend on deception. It's been that way since antiquity. Modern technology makes it easier.

Churchill said lies get halfway around the world before truths get their pants on. Global communication today is instant. Sending hawkish information everywhere is as simple as ready, aim, fire.

Washington and NATO partners are involved in multiple direct and proxy wars. More are planned. Word hasn't gotten out but it's coming.

Obama and Romney want war. So does NATO Secretary-General Fogh Rasmussen. He's a consummate liar. Numerous times he said NATO won't intervene in Syria. It's been planned all along.

It's ongoing. America, Britain, France and Turkey are lead belligerents. They've been involved since winter last year. Much goes on covertly.

If NATO didn't want war, its key countries would be supporting peace. Death squad armies wouldn't have been recruited. Training, funding, arming, and directing them wouldn't have been ongoing since conflict erupted in March 2011.

Nor would terrorists be given safe haven in Turkey on Syria's border. Provocations throw fuel on the fire. Last June, two Turkish warplanes lawlessly entered Syrian airspace low and fast. Doing so showed hostile intent. 

One escaped unharmed. Syrian anti-aircraft fire downed the other in its own waters. Assad was blamed for Turkey's provocation. War could have erupted but didn't at the time. 

The latest cross-border incident makes it more likely. Inflammatory rhetoric increases the possibility. Turkey's been shelling Syrian territory for six days. 

Assad had nothing to do with mortar fire on Turkish territory. Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants are responsible. It doesn't matter. Only who's blamed counts. Fingers always point the wrong way. Media scoundrels spread Big Lies. They're repeated ad nauseam. 

Warmongering officials advance the ball for war. Turkish ones play with fire. As one of 28 NATO countries, it's obligated in ways it wouldn't be if independent. It also borders Syrian territory.

Prime Minister Erdogan has been hawkish for months. President Abdullah Gul marches with him in lockstep. 

"The worst-case scenario is happening in Syria at the moment. Syrian people are suffering and the developments there affect Turkey. We have citizens who have lost their lives," he said.
