Untangling the latest lies regarding Syria

Today we are heading back to Syria. Not literally, of course.
Interesting piece in the NYT's "Turkey Shelters Anti-Assad Group"
"Turkey is hosting an armed opposition group waging an insurgency against the government of President Bashar al-Assad, providing shelter to the commander and dozens of members of the group, the Free Syrian Army, and allowing them to orchestrate attacks across the border from inside a camp guarded by the Turkish military."

This article, published yesterday, is giving the readers an impression this is something new. Something that has just come about.
A recent happening. I don't think so. Nor, should you.

If you have been following the destabilization of Syria, you already are aware that Turkey has been "hosting" armed oppositions groups who have been attacking Syria and Syrian citizens for months now.
In fact June 8/2011 : Turkey's role in Syria's destabilisation
Followed by August 9/2011:"Humanitarian" war on Syria? The Dangers of Military Escalation.



Muslim Brotherhood Rebels at Jisr al Shughour

In June, Turkish troops crossed the border into northern Syria, officially to come to the rescue of Syrian refugees. The government of Bashar Al Assad accused Turkey of directly supporting the incursion of rebel forces into northern Syria:

"A rebel force of up to 500 fighters attacked a Syrian Army position on June 4 in northern Syria. They said the target, a garrison of Military Intelligence, was captured in a 36-hour assault in which 72 soldiers were killed in Jisr Al Shoughour, near the border with Turkey.



In between I had posts on the so called "displaced persons shelters" that Turkey had put up, behind tarp covered fences, that no media could go in and out of. NO pictures allowed.
Then of course there was the psy-op of the Angelina Jolie visit....

You don't have to reread that all, unless you want too?!
Point being, I have covered the Turkish support for destabilization for months now. The NYT's article obfuscates the fact that this has been going on for all those months and portrays this as recent news. It isn't!

What the NYT's article does, is verify the suspicions I have held all along that the "refugee camps" were covers for the attackers. Not that I needed the confirmation it was dam obvious!

On Wednesday, the group, living in a heavily guarded refugee camp in Turkey, claimed responsibility for killing nine Syrian soldiers, including one uniformed officer, in an attack in restive central Syria."

Just like I layed it out, months ago.
“This pushes Turkish policy further towards active intervention in Syria,” said Hugh Pope, an analyst with the International Crisis Group. He called Turkey’s apparent relationship with the Free Syrian Army “completely new territory."

Wow, there is the "International Crisis Group" again. I covered them not to long ago!
Always there when a crisis is needed. Hmmmm....
OH and this is not completely "new territory" for Turkey or the "crisis group"

Turkish officials say that their government has not provided weapons or military support to the insurgent group, and that the group has not directly requested such assistance.

Baloney! Since Turkey is hosting them within their territory.
"Not directly" requesting assistance. Nice spin. Because indirectly the assistance from Turkey has been obvious

Colonel As’aad, who thanked Turkey for its protection, made it clear that he was seeking better weapons, saying that his group could inflict damage on a Syrian leadership that has proven remarkably cohesive.

We ask the international community to provide us with weapons so that we, as an army, the Free Syrian Army, can protect the people of Syria,” he said. “We are an army, we are in the opposition, and we are prepared for military operations. If the international community provides weapons, we can topple the regime in a very, very short time.”


Ok, I am getting long here. I suggest you read the NYT's article entirely.

Colonel Assad, wants weapons, so more innocent Syrians can die. He is prepared for military operations. I have no doubt of that. Regime change in Syria, as in Libya, is the objective.

Let's move on to this bit of news- Allegedly 30 killed, though earlier today this headline said 20, but activists call for a "no fly zone"

As activists called for nationwide protests on Friday to demand the imposition of a no-fly zone over Syria to protect civilians and to encourage soldiers to defect.

The no fly zone is utter nonsense. There has been no use of the Syrian Air force. All attempts at putting down the destablizers have been on the ground.

This is an excuse to launch an attack on Syria, by NATO. It is also something I covered two weeks ago on October 12/11 Time to impose a No Fly Zone over Syria ? Taken straight from the Council of Foreign Relations. The same group that controls the tool that is Angelina Jolie


"To the latest, taken from the plunder Libya playbook- A NO FLY ZONE
Straight from a Council of Foreign Relations mouthpiece- Micah Zenko "
Calls for a No Fly Zone

"We call on the international community to impose a no-fly zone so that the Syrian Free Army can function with greater freedom," said the Syrian Revolution 2011 on its Facebook page.

A UN-mandated no-fly zone was imposed over Libya to protect civilians as fighting raged to oust the regime of ex-dictator Moamer Kadhafi.

It the same old story, same old song and dance- my friends!

  1. What's astonishing is that the NYT piece admits that the opposition, meaning the minority, particularly as they admit to needing support from the outside, is waging an armed insurgency, yet the piece is crafted to garner support for this activity, and people are so well conditioned that they won't pick up on it.

    Someone recently made reference to neuro-linguistic programming. I can't say I fully understand the theory, but it seems like it's based on suppressing or eliminating cognitive dissonance through repetition. That's how they achieve what they do out in the open. For months the papers have been repeating the mantras 'brutal tyrant' 'peaceful protest' 'humanitarian intervention'. When the time comes, no actual proof is necessary, nor a valid pretext. They just carry on with the 'armed insurgency' and no one bats an eye.

  5. Hey Blammo

    It seems NYT's admits that Turkey is supporting the terrorists, oops, I mean the "free syrian army" in order to ready the brainwashing of the masses.

    The whole tone of this article reeks of a recent development spin, when nothing could be further from the truth

    I mean just the name 'free syrian army" has so many interpretations..
    The alleged leader of said army is most likely Turkish.

    I recall a post way back, I believe with info from Joshua Landis, that it was clear way back when, that the "free syrian army" was located in Turkey, not in Syria.
    Which would have to follow that it is Turks masquerading as Syrians.
    Having been firmly ensconced in the refugee camps for some time now, launching attacks across the border.

    I will admit to being unable to tell the difference between the two peoples.

    The "International Crisis Group" is clearly a player in the destabilization game.
    They made there appearance in Libya previously

    "Someone recently made reference to neuro-linguistic programming. I can't say I fully understand the theory, but it seems like it's based on suppressing or eliminating cognitive dissonance through repetition. '

    Went to do some quick reading on it and yeah, it seems you have it down right,
    Using the "right" words to illicit a desired emotional response, by- passing rational thinking completely.

    It is creepy and explains the almost mindless commentary one runs into online.

    Mindless because that's all it is

  8. "The whole tone of this article reeks of a recent development spin, when nothing could be further from the truth" -that was the thrust of your post and you are absolutely right. I've payed close attention and you've beat all the alternative news columnists to every angle of this situation. I may have said this before, but one could be forgiven for thinking that all the alternative news pundits were following your blog, Penny.

    As for the crafting of narrative, television news creates a fiction to a degree even greater than the papers. The 'reportage' is so condensed that it's %100 narrative, with little to no basis in fact. I suppose that way when someone opens a paper, they believe they're really being informed. It's really something to watch the ever increasing departure from reality.

  9. "one could be forgiven for thinking that all the alternative news pundits were following your blog, Penny"

    really?!
    wow, that is quite a compliment.

    '. It's really something to watch the ever increasing departure from reality.'

    I could not agree more.
    Seriously!

    I really, truly think that the increase in depression and mental disorders, while of course a boon to big pharma, are linked to a major disconnect between what the subconscious knows and what the conscious acknowledges.

    A big disconnect
