Turkish daily: NATO airbase in Turkey to assume a central role in a possible war on Syria



propaganda alert

2 November 2012




______________________________________





According to plans prepared by the US and Turkey, Pirinclik Air Base (*) , which is the closest NATO air base to Syria, will assume a central role in the event of an operation against Syria; reports Hurriyet daily.

A delegation of 20 officials from the United States European Command (EUCOM) inspected the air base in Diyarbakir for two days to assess its current readiness for a possible military action.





(*)  Hurriyet’s report refers to the NATO base in Diyarbakir as “2nd Air Force Command” [headquarters], instead of ‘Pirinclik Air Base’. Although the US Department of Defence announced the return of the Pirinclik Air Base to the Turkish Armed Forces in 1997, the base is still being used as one of the 24 NATO bases across Turkey and hosts NATO’s early-warning radar system.

It is also worth noting that another NATO’s Incirlik Air Base in Adana (southern Turkey) is in a similar proximity to Turkey’s border with Syria. Incirlik is currently being used as a command center of NATO-led covert operations against Syria.

Erdogan is a Tool

by Wise Up, Erdogan Sunday, Nov. 04, 2012 at 4:34 AM

Being used by the forces that direct NATO and their terrorist hordes, is not going to work out well for Erdogan or the nation of Turkey.
They have offered him the table of a new Turkey as a world player as in the old Ottoman Empire. This will produce the predictable terrorism and extreme polarization that will tear it apart internally.
Doesn't Erdogan know about the practices like Operation Gladio and the entire list of destabilization tactics that are used in this all too well used program?
The vanity of leadership is a frightful affliction and we should find a treatment and cure. Before it's too late.
