Erdogan branded Syria a ‘terrorist state’:


“The regime in Syria has now become a terrorist state,” Mr Erdogan declared on September 5, 2012, at a meeting of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development party. “We do not have the luxury to be indifferent to what is happening there.”

After US and UK, Germany is the largest weapons supplier to Turkey

October 4, 2012

NATO members have both sold and donated a wide range of weapons to Turkey, including more than 500 combat aircraft, 500 combat helicopters, 5,000 tanks, and thousands of artillery pieces, mortars, machine guns and assault rifles. The United States has been Turkey's main supplier, providing about 80% of Turkey's arsenal. Over the past decade (up to 1995), the US Congress has appropriated $5.3 billion in military aid (grants and loans to purchase weapons) for Turkey, making Turkey the third largest recipient of US military aid (after Israel and Egypt).

Turkey has recently invited bids for the supply of four early warning aircraft (AWACS) (mid-1998). The contract is worth around $1 billion. The aircraft would enable Turkey not only to command and control its own airspace but also that of the surrounding region. Likely suppliers are Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grunman, and Israel Aircraft Industries.

After US and UK, Germany is the largest weapons supplier to Turkey. Germany is currently trying to sell Turkey 1,000 Leopard II main battlefield tanks.

US. president Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for terrorist attacks in Syria. Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an "intelligence finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust the Syrian government. C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said some weeks ago that Britain steps up its support for terrrorists in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million).

Over 30,000 various weapons, including boxes of gunshots with the words "NATO BALL" have been channelled to Syria. The overall amount of explosives makes up 300 tons. The deliveries were made by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. They depend on the United States, which is making every effort to overpower Syria.

Necdet Ozel in Ankara. The meeting took place at General Staff headquarters but was only announced to the public in a statement released by the General Staff some days later. The talks were closed to the press and the statement did not elaborate on what Stavridis and Ozel discussed. But the smiling faces and the news about Turkey's attack on the Syrian civil aircraft, tell us something about the 'democratic' plans they made.

Kemal Kilicdaroglu: 'Support to Terrorism Threatens Turkey's National Security'


CHP: Erdogan's Support to Terrorism In Syria Threatens Turkey's National Security

Sep 22, 2012
ANKARA, (SANA) - Secretary-general of the Turkish Republican People's Party (Cumhuriyet Halk Partisi, CHP) Kemal Kilicdaroglu on Friday said that the support of the Prime Minister Recep Tayyib Erdogan's government to the terrorist acts in Syria poses threats on the Turkish national security.

During his participation in a large popular demonstration in Istanbul under the title "We Want Peace", Kilicdaroglu described the policies of Erdogan targeing Syria as dangerous and contrary to conscience and moral.

He stressed that the Turkish opposition will never accept any foreign interference in the Syrian affairs as the Syrian government didn't and will not accept foreign interference in the Turkish affairs.

Kilicdaroglu highlighted that Erdogan is following the dictations and policies of western capitals when dealing with the Syrian issue.

Turkey, US and Israel: 'no-fly zone over Syria'...


U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said after a meeting with her Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu in Istanbul on Saturday that 'Washington and Ankara should develop detailed operational planning on ways to assist the armed gangs fighting to topple Assad'.

“Our intelligence services, our military have very important responsibilities and roles to play so we are going to be setting up a working group to do exactly that,” she said.

The United States and Turkey indicated they were studying a range of possible measures over Syria, including a no-fly zone.

The US-Turkey announcement followed the news that the Syrian troops pushed back the by the US and Britain armed gangs in the Aleppo offensive.

Some days ago, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain steps up its support for the gangs, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million).

And last week President Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for the armed gangs seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.

The US and its allies used the so-called 'no-fly zone' to bomb and to destroy Iraq and Libya. In both cases, the bombings followed a months-long war campaign. As is the case in the war against Syria now, the US and its allies armed the gangs and provided them with the most modern satellite phones while American, British, French and israeli satellites flew over Libya.
