Here is an article from dated October 4,2012 titled : Turkey Attempts to Trigger a NATO-led War against Syria .The article says that Turkey was always Looking for a Pretext to Start War with Syria. The author wants to point out that this recent mortar shelling from Syria inside Turkish territory can be a False Flag to bring NATO troops against Assad Regime .

It was previously reported that Turkey was intended by NATO, and more specifically, Wall Street and London, to lead efforts in carving out “safe havens” in Syria’s north, and to do so either under a false “humanitarian” or false “security” pretext.

After over a year of harboring foreign terrorists and supporting their operations near and across the Turkish-Syrian border, NATO-member Turkey has claimed it has “retaliated” with military force against “targets” inside Syria for an alleged attack on Turkish territory that it has blamed on the Syrian government. Despite heavily armed listed-terrorist organizations operating in large numbers on both sides of the Turkish border with Turkey’s explicit approval and logistical support, the government in Ankara appears to have excluded the possibility that these terrorist forces, not the Syrian military, were responsible for the attack which consisted of mortar rounds the armed militants are known to widely use.

The New York Times itself, in its article titled, “Turkey Fires Artillery at Syrian Targets in Retaliation for Civilian Deaths,” concedes that: It was unknown whether the mortar shells were fired by Syrian government forces or rebels fighting to topple the government of President Bashar al-Assad. The Turkish response seemed to assume that the Syrian government was responsible.

Honesty, Turkey won't need NATO help.

With Assad having his hands full with the rebels already, Turkey should mop up nicely. My only real concern then would be a desperate Assad restoring to chemical weapons. And I suppose the usual possibility of Iran/Israel/Hamas/Hezbollah/USA all jumping into the fray.

Syria admitted it was them who fired the mortars and took responsibility. They did not say it was a rogue element or blame it on the rebels. So if it is the false flag Syria is in on it.

Is there someplace where I can find this statement by the Syrian government, that it was their army that launched that mortar round into Turkey?
