HURRIYET DAILY ’NEWS’ TURNS A BLIND EYE TO ESCALATING GENOCIDAL TURKISH & SAUDI REGIMES WAR CRIMES AGAINST SYRIAN PEOPLE (03.05.2015)
NATO ‘governments’ and their ’news’ media typically talk in a closed circular loop amongst themselves, about what they want, which contrary to their own claims, in no way reflects either civilian society or civilian society's rule of law.
The latest NATO spin in obsequious Turkish ‘news’ media which is quite disgraceful, openly outlines the escalating criminality of Turkish and Saudi regimes continuing to openly advocate militarily taking over the sovereign state of Syria through the illegal use of terrorism.
King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud & Recep Tayyip Erdogan: two war criminals wallowing in the inhumanity of Genocidal oil wars
Hurriyet Daily 'News' very unwisely ignore the evidence of Erdogan illegally working with the likes of Lord Rotshchild, Rupert Murdoch et al to murder any Syrian civilian who stands in the way of their corporate interests, which amount to Genocide.
Turkey’s always dynamic, always changing agenda does not permit many of us to follow and cover foreign policy issues in the necessary depth. This is especially the case amid the tense internal political climate on the eve of the June 7 parliamentary elections. One of the top issues concerning Turkish diplomacy, which is least covered by the media, is the Syrian issue - not only because Turkey hosts around 2 million Syrians but also because of the security challenges that it causes in the country.
[The Genocidal NATO War is not properly 'covered' by the NATO 'news' media because it is wholly complicit in trying to cover up colonial Genocide in Syria]
Recent developments from Syria show that the Bashar al-Assad regime is having difficulty holding strategic points in deserted eastern areas against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and in the northern and western parts against the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and other armed groups such as Ahrar al-Sham and al-Nusra, which have ties to al-Qaeda. Both groups are known to be Salafist and predominantly based around Aleppo and Idlib.
The FSA and these two groups are believed to be composed of a military force of around 50,000 to 60,000 [terrorists] men and are actively fighting against al-Assad’s army, which has been losing important manpower recently [no evidence is produced of this]. The rebel [terrorist] group seized Idlib in a strategic victory against regime forces, clearing its rule in the northern part of Syria, with similar military achievements in the south as well.
Reports [??} suggest that rebels have now engaged in heavy fighting against the Syrian army in the Latakia province in areas close to al-Assad’s ancestral home. This port city is believed to have a strategic importance for the regime and its fall will give a huge blow to al-Assad.
Of course, these developments are being closely followed by the international community as well as by Turkey. In a comprehensive interview with private broadcaster NTV on April 30, presidential spokesman and foreign policy heavyweight İbrahim Kalın summarized these developments by saying, “As you follow closely, the balances in Syria have started to change.”
Change in balances
Before trying to shed a light on the roots of this balance change, let’s quote Ambassador Kalın more on Syria: “It’s very obvious that one of the major obstacles before establishing a regional order based on mutual respect is Syria. There will be no relief in the region before this issue is resolved ... The point on which everybody agrees, including the European Union [who are not the civilian society] and the United States, is that this blood-guilty dictator will have no place in the future of Syria. But the problem is how to make this point operational.” [it is civilian society/resistance to NATO who launch legal challenges against EU governments in the legal jurisdiction of the EU]
On this issue, Kalın cited changing positions of the Gulf countries towards the resolution of the Syrian problem, especially after the balances changed in the field.
Recalling President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s consecutive visits to the region, starting from Saudi Arabia on March 2 and followed by trips to Qatar and Kuwait, Kalın said these countries, which were skeptical of Turkey’s plans to establish a no-fly zone and security zones in Syria, are now warming to the idea. “They also have realized that this problem cannot be resolved merely by air bombardments on ISIL targets,” he said.
A regional coalition?
Kalın stressed that Turkey and the U.S. were in full agreement on Syrian issue, although this was not always among the priorities of the Americans. However, what he valued more is the recent change in the Saudi administration after the accession of the new king, calling it a “strategic recovery.”
Upon questions on how this no-fly zone or security areas will be established, Kalın said the following: “This may be through a regional coalition or a coalition to be formed by other countries. Various ways to implement this will be sought. These are, of course, under constant negotiations.”
Neither Kalın nor other Turkish officials admit it, but there are strong indications that Turkish and Saudi support to the rebels are becoming more visible in the field.
Saudi Arabia and Qatar are believed to be supplying weapons to the rebels, while Turkey is playing a facilitator role in transferring these logistics inside Syria. Only days before, the Syrian regime openly accused Turkey of providing support to the rebels and violating international law.
As put by Kalın, the regional coalition composed of Turkey and the Gulf countries under the leadership of Saudi Arabia is already active in Syria with the purpose of toppling al-Assad by using the FSA-backed Salafist groups. This ambitious policy, however, is regarded by the West with concern, as it would fully kill off the tiny existing chance for a political settlement in Syria. For many in the West, the failure in finding a political settlement will only bring about the fragmentation of Syria.
One rather more mundane problem NATO et al have, is civilian society being reminded of and learning about using civilian society's rule of law, which we use in Europe, despite it remaining absent from the entire discourse of all NATO propaganda.
It is impossible to maintain the facade in Europe that the civilian population cannot access courts of law to bring legal challenges to divide and destroy long Genocidal NATO, who have never had any legal grounds for being in the Middle East ever.
The British regime would find it impossible to (for example) explain in any court of law using the British military to (for example) 'support' their own and Erdogan's various unholy 'alliances' with Lord Rothschild, Murdoch & Cheney et al.
It remains impossible for the EU to 'sell' the Genocidal NATO War on Syria in Europe through promoting Erdogan, Al-Saud or Obama et al.
