Turkey ditches Syrian rebels


debka.com

Two radical developments arising from the Syrian conflict are revealed by debkafile: In an astonishing about face, Turkey has just turned away from its 14-month support for the anti-Assad revolt alongside the West and made common cause with Russia, i.e. Bashar Assad. Further exacerbating fears of a “proxy war” involving Israel, Iran and Syria, the Lebanese Hizballah is getting ready to bring its Scud D missiles, which can reach any point in Israel, and other advanced weapons, including anti-air missiles, out of secret storage in Syria and transfer them across the border to Lebanon.

This may be the catalyst not needed to step up pressure in Syria. Turkey has been supportive of the rebel free Syrain army for over a year now, offering them a platform to run operations into the country.

Without this support I don't know if this will expand the war but, it will surely condense it further into Syria as the rebels lose ground.

because they probably realized how stupid they are for supporting REBELS,

Syria has some of the most lax laws of any Mid East country regarding religious freedom, especially compared to our "ally" Saudi Arabia.
Isnt it funny how these countries that do have lax islamic laws are being targeted ,WITH our support.
Egypt, Libya and Tunisia all were loosely based on islamic law, no veils for women, etc..

War by proxy baby. Arm the side you want to win, then, later kill those with you're weapons.

Its interesting to see so little backlash because these wars take time and get little media coverage out West. All the while giving the pissed off people of those countries an outlet to vent through, sadly, they will regret those venting decisions later when it was worse than ever before.

EXACTLY ...if we REALLY cared we would have bombed the Saudi royal palace FIRST.

we did the opposite, we are in the process of killing and removing the people who were open to secular interpretations and open to some dialogue and co-operation.


but I guess that's not good enough, we need them to bend over for us, not "co-operate"

quote from 2003

Colonel Gadafy, had acknowledged the country had WMD and would seek to rid itself of them.

His decision to come clean over weapons and weapons programmes, admitting to a more advanced nuclear programme than Libya had been thought to possess, is the latest in a series of moves aimed to end his country's international isolation and reputation as a rogue state.

It could prompt the lifting of US sanctions and the return of US oil companies.

Libya's prime minister, Shukri Ghanem, said that the decision to scrap WMD would improve relations with Britain and the US, as well as boosting the country's economic fortunes.

He told the BBC that Libya wanted to "change [its] priorities and concentrate on our economic affairs and economic development".

"We think that, by the actions we are taking, we are just demonstrating how much we are interested in having a peaceful world and peaceful good relations with countries, including the United States," he said.

..but of course. Obama likes the Muslim Brotherhood, they're good people, apparently.
Every single nation that has been targeted has had its Western-sympathising governments replaced with Islamists. In Syria... we're just waiting for the pattern to play out one more time.
