Ankara lies about fighter jet...

Obama.Erdolan.Turkey.jpgOn May 8, 2012 (almost 2 months ago), Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan said 'Ankara is ready to ask NATO for a military intervention in Syria'.

This is another evidence that Erdogan and NATO want to abuse the recent incident with the Turkish F-16 fighter, for their long prepared military action against Syria.

Ankara lies also about its miliitary support of the called Syrian rebels.

"Turkey does not ship weapons to any neighbouring country, including Syria," Turkish foreign ministry spokesperson Selcuk Unal said some time ago.

But in November 2011, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and Turkey were already preparing the ground for military intervention in Syria especially through providing Syrian gangs with weaponry. Large caches of weapons including anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles, mortar bombs and heavy machine guns were sent via ground to major Syrian cities witnessing unrest. Turkey's military protected the arms caches on their passage to the so called Syrian rebels and the Syrian 'rebels' received training inside Turkey to use the weapons, according to a report by the news agency Debka.
The New York Times newspaper reported that 'US intelligence operatives in Turkey were vetting the flow of weapons to Syrian 'rebels' to ensure they do not fall into the hands of Al-Qaeda militants'.
The Times cited unnamed US officials and Arab intelligence officials as saying the weapons were being paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar and taken across the Turkish border.



Turkey ready to ask NATO for military intervention in Syria: Erdogan

May 8, 2012 - Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Ankara is ready to ask NATO for a military intervention in Syria, Press TV reports.

“I am ready to ask NATO for a military intervention in Syria,” Erdogan was quoted as saying on Monday.

The Turkish premier made the remarks in an interview with Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera in the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana, prior to his trip to Italy. He met with Slovenian President Danilo Turk in Ljubljana on Monday.

Erdogan also stated that the turmoil in Syria has to be brought to an end with the cooperation of international powers.

“We have been very patient with Syria issue so far,” he claimed.

The Monday remarks by the Turkish prime minister came as Syria held the first parliamentary elections under a new constitution approved by an overwhelming support of the people in a February referendum.

On May 6, Erdogan also expressed Turkey’s support for the Syrians seeking refuge in Turkey during a meeting of his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in the southern Turkish city of Gaziantep near the Syrian border.

Over the past few months, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar expressed support for providing weaponry to the armed groups fighting against the Syrian government.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu claimed on March 3 that the “international community’s message might be conveyed to the Syrian administration via certain methods including the arming of the Syrian National Council (SNC).”

On April 8, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan had not “submitted written guarantees from the governments of Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey on stopping their funding to terrorist groups.”
