POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
Turkey is acting as stalking horse for the United States and Israel in their desire to topple Assad and dismember Syria.
Here Syria legitimately downed a warplane either within or on its frontiers.
Yet when Israel murdered about ten Turkish citizens during its high-seas piracy of a humanitarian ship, Turkey took no such action with NATO.
This entire business is a set-up.
The Free Syrian Army is a fraud, an American-Israeli creation, and there too Turkey plays a role in providing refuge for what a group fairly characterized as terrorists.
America and Israel simple do not think any international laws or conventions apply to them when they want something outside their territory.
It is a world governed by bullies they are creating.
"According to Reuters news (I know, I know....not very reliable), Syria announced that it has killed several Turks who have infiltrated into Syrian space.
In other news....Iran is asking both parties to cool down.
"Will we ever find out the truth about this plane incident?"
Reuters of course has a well-earned reputation as part of the CIA's "mighty Wurlitzer," the intelligence agency’s name for the set of news outlets it manipulates in planting of stories.
We've had one story that the plane was not a warplane.
One story that it was a warplane.
One story that it was indeed in Syrian airspace and Turkey was sorry.
And now we have a story that it was in international air space.
Good God, we no longer can get reliable news on anything of importance.
Our entire sense of reality, at least in international affairs, is today reduced to a fantasy creation, a few facts hung, here and there like a few nasty-looking ornaments on an ugly Christmas tree, just enough to make the created story seem plausible.
This is because there is so much concentration in the ownership of news outlets, the hands into which it is concentrated are huge corporations sharing interests with governments, and governments like the United States and Israel view it as their God-given right to constantly play with the lives of others.
In effect, the West today, in such matters, is governed by lies in pursuit of goals without ethics or morality.
"Democracy" and "rights" and "law" are words used in Orwellian fashion by these governments and their loyal followers, words without any genuine meaning, resembling the suggestive and untruthful words used in advertising.
