Turkey have made a statement that they are prepared for war if need be, and have gave the green light for across border operations.
True, Turkey has voted that cross border operations are a 'go'.
It's ironic because they are been fired upon by the anti-Assad rebels they provided weapons too.
They should know by now that rebels are agreeing to the Wests agenda, not theirs.
Not so sure about this statement however. According to what I can find most articles I'm reading describe the shells entering Turkey are "Syrian
mortars" or "Syrian shells", implying whats coming across into Turkey are from the Syrian army, not the rebels. The only article that specifically
says the shells are from the Army and not rebels comes from an article posted by BloombergBusinessweek earlier today:
Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told state-run television on Oct. 6 that the deaths in the town of Akcakale were caused by a D30 type, 122mm
artillery shell used only by the Syrian
The article goes on to say:
Turkey may strike Syrian artillery batteries with F-16 warplanes if Syrian shells cause new casualties, Milliyet newspaper said today, without
Source same as above.
This would imply that Turkey feels the mortars hitting their border towns are coming from the army and not the rebels, however, this statement is
merely speculation (as far as pending actions go) and since they also do not site a source we have no way of knowing just how reliable this info
Since google searches are fickle and it seems no one person pulls the same results do you have any links to show your position that it's rebel
mortars that are being lobbed into Turkey? Thanks in advance
