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."
He referred to the alleged Syrian mortar attack. Five Turkish nationals were killed. What he omitted says more than he revealed. Early reports suggested perhaps a stray Syrian mortar accidentally struck Turkish territory.
On October 6, Reuters and other news services reported more mortars from Syrian territory landing in Turkish territory. For four consecutive days, Turkish artillery shelled in response.
