Which is why, Novosti was reporting this morning that Putin's Russia implicated Georgia in the riots...Is it a coincidence that Russia hostedf a massive Caucuses military drill, the Eusaisn air defense exercises around incoming cruise missiles and the recent testing of the nuclear strike force.
Anonymous, it is not a coincidence that Russia has implicated Georgia in riots, or that Russia hosted a massive military drill around cruise missiles and nuclear strikes..
Russia looks to be preparing for war. More precisely it appears Russia is prepared for an attack. Not to launch one, but to be attacked.
Found this interesting:
Chechen ex-militant: Georgia trained anti-Russian terrorists, then killed them in false flag op
Laying seige to soldiers and towns ensuring mass casualties
They had surrounded the government soldiers on the hilltop, a cluster of white tents just visible behind the trees, and were biding their time.
"There are 150 soldiers in there. We've cut off their food and weapons supply for four days now. When we feel they are weak enough, we can go in and storm it and take them prisoner," said Abdullah's commander, Anas al-Zeir, who heads the Youssef al-Azma Brigade.
Take them prisoner? Doubtful. More likely, once the Syrian troops are nearly dead the NATO mercs will slaughter them. Using this method of terror and slaughter has been very successful for NATO freedom fighters
‘The rebels' changed approach has brought some successes. Several towns and checkpoints have fallen into insurgent hands after being besieged for about a week.’
The rebels brought in help too. “At least one Chechen and several Arabs from abroad were among the fighters”.
At least on Chechen, maybe more. How many is several Arabs?
The fate of besieged soldiers was also not clear.
Up the road, at the seized checkpoint, fighters buried bloated bodies in the red dirt. They said the soldiers were killed by their own forces before they stormed the area but the claim was impossible to verify.
The rebels who have laid siege to Syrian soldiers make the unverifiable claim that the Syrian soldiers were “killed by their own”, but they (mercs) are burying the evidence of such atrocities?? That makes sense only in the context of covering up ones own crimes
It was long past midnight, but the rebel commander couldn't sleep until his fighters returned from the Turkish border with the latest shipment of gear meant to help them battle the Syrian army.
In the morning, his team arrived with their prize: a single suitcase of night-vision goggles. For the first time, his brigade's snipers would be able to strike back at night against regime snipers who already have night-vision capabilities in the street-by-street fights for territory in the battleground city of Aleppo.
The NATO mercs can shoot at ordinary Aleppo citizens with the help of those night vision goggles too. All the better to terrorize the population..
Turkey and Egypt gettin' it together:
I like the NYT’s spin in the article
A wider-ranging partnership is expected to be announced in the coming weeks when the Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose party shares an Islamist pedigree with Egypt’s leadership, goes to Cairo.
“Apparently now Egypt is Turkey’s closest partner in the Middle East,”
The partnership is also rooted in the Islamist politics of the leaders of the two countries and their respective movements: Mr. Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party, or A.K.P., and the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt’s president, Mohamed Morsi. This connection offers chances for a new Sunni Islamic bloc
Divide to conquer come to mind?
The scene at the annual convention of Mr. Erdogan’s party in Ankara, the capital, a few weeks ago offered a portrait of a realigned Middle East with Turkey at the helm. Mr. Morsi said at the gathering, “We offer our gratefulness for the support that the Turkish people and its administration has extended and will extend to us in the future.” To a standing ovation, Khaled Meshal, the political leader of Hamas, the Palestinian militant group, declared of Mr. Erdogan: “You are not only a Turkish leader. You are, now, also a leader of the world of Islam.”
Really, Mr Hamas in Palestine? Turkey, champion of the Palestinians? Not on your life!
Keeping in mind who created Hamas in Palestine??? (Israel) Hamas in Palestine likes Erdogan? Must have been Erdogan’s “brave stance” when it came to the Mavi Marmara and the starvation blockade of Gaza that won him over?
Syrian Conflict Part of Mideast 'Geopolitical Game' Stating the obvious, unless one is willfully blind? Or willfully ignorant?
"It appears that every time the hope for progress in the Syrian situation arises, somebody attempts to prevent it from calming down and deliberately fuels the continuation of the bloodshed" in Syria, Lavrov said.
According to Lavrov, the Syrian conflict is "part of geopolitical remapping of the Middle East, where various players attempt to safeguard their interests."
Assad, who is widely viewed as a close ally of Iran, has been unfairly made "a scapegoat" in this "big geopolitical game," Lavrov said.
He defended Assad by calling him "a guarantor of the security of national minorities, among them Christians, who have been living in Syria for centuries."
Speaking of remaking the Middle East, which is so obvious
The Turkish people understand this!
“What's happening in Syria is all part of America's great project to reshape the borders of the Middle East. America and its allies don't care about bringing democracy to the Syrian people. Look at what happened to Iraq!” he fumes. “The imperialist countries are only after oil and mineral resources.”
Nineteen months into Syria's conflict, resentment of Ankara and anti-US sentiment simmer in Antakya, which lies just over the border with Syria.
The beliefs stem in part from a bold Bush administration political proposal that has faded into obscurity in the West, but remains lodged in the minds of many here. Known as the Greater Middle East Initiative, it was formally introduced by then-US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in 2006 at a conference in Tel Aviv. Her references to "the birth pangs of a New Middle East" and the unveiling there of a new map of the region featuring a "Free Kurdistan" are still remembered with resentment.
Of course Gilbert Achcar quoted below speaks in the typical spin fashion. He even used the "conspiracy" word in his diatribe. Non credible. Conspiracy is the trigger word used to shut your thought processes down.
Refik Eryilmaz, a Turkish parliamentarian from Antakya with the opposition Republican People's Party, says that Western superpowers are trying to incite a sectarian conflict between Sunnis and Shiites so that countries in the region fragment along ethno-religious lines, becoming weaker in the process.
Has it been abandoned Gilbert? It sure as hell doesn’t look that way! Does Gilbert think people are that gullible? That a simple ‘appeal to authority’ is going to be taken as anything but a means of covering the obvious agenda?
Gilbert Achcar, a professor of international relations at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, says that the Greater Middle East Initiative has long since been abandoned, and all that remains is the deep skepticism of US motives that it spurred....
