Turkish False Flag on Syria
Willful Turkish provocation.
by Stephen Lendman
The news is out but bears repeating. New reports confirm it. It shouldn't surprise. It's one of the oldest stunts around. Attacks launched are blamed on victims. Wars follow. More on Turkey's false flag below.
Sinking the Lusitania in May 1915 preceded America's April 1917 WW I entry. The 1933 Reichstag fire helped Hitler assume dictatorial powers.
On August 31, 1939, Nazis impersonating Poles attacked a Gleiwitz radio station. It was on the border between the two countries. WW II followed.
Roosevelt manipulated the Japanese to attack Pearl Harbor. It gave him the war he wanted. Japan's fleet was tracked across the Pacific. Pearl Harbor's Admiral HE Kimmel wasn't warned. Casualties were needed to turn pacifist Americans into raving Japan haters and get congressional support.
Numerous other false flags followed. The August 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident is well-known. Over a decade of war followed. For suffering Vietnamese it never ended.
In August 1990, Washington colluded with Kuwait's al-Sabah monarchy. Saddam was entrapped to invade. In January 1991, the Gulf War began. Genocidal sanctions, more war, occupation, and destruction of the "cradle of civilization" followed.
September 11, 2001 was the Big Lie of our time. Virtually everything about the official story was falsified. Most Americans still believe it. Wars on humanity rage out-of-control. Millions of corpses attest to Washington's viciousness.
False flags are an American tradition. Big Lies launch wars. Official accounts are fake. Propaganda works that way. Turkey's ruling government is a Washington tool. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a useful stooge. So are top officials around him.
They threaten world peace and their own people. On October 6, Hurriyet Daily News headlined "Turkey not far away from war: Erdogan."
On October 5, he said:
"We are not war-lovers, but we are not far from war either".I am calling once more on the al-Assad regime and its supporters: Don't dare to test Turkey's patience."
"We are not bluffing and we will follow this incident closely. God willing, the Syrian people would soon be saved from this cruelty and governed by an administration that guarantees the rights of all parties."
