State of War in Syria

Last year, Obama declared war on Syria.

by Stephen Lendman

On Wednesday, Assad said "a state of war" exists. 

"(A)LL our policies, directives and all sectors will be directed in order to gain victory in this war."

He called on government officials to boost relations with Russia, Latin American and African states.

"Syria seeks to build good relations with all world countries but we have to know where are our real interests."

On June 27, Hurriyet daily headlined "Downed jet was flying with another plane: CHP deputy," saying:

Main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) deputy Orhan Duzgun "demanded that the government reveal the nationality of the accompanying jet...."

Duzgun believes it belonged to another NATO member. Its country of origin isn't known. It could be America. US military aircraft operate from Incirlik Air Base.

AP gave a different account. It said "gunmen" raided the station. Seven employees were killed. Others were kidnapped. Al-Ikhbariya's compound sustained heavy damage. Nonetheless, broadcasts resumed shortly after the attack.

One employee said:
