Merkel's visit: Germany and Turkey at the forefront of NATO's war propaganda against Syria

by Cem Ertür Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013 at 10:48 PM

Once the U.S., German and Dutch Patriot missile batteries in south Turkey became operational under NATO command, first the defense ministers of Germany, Netherlands and Turkey, then Germany's Prime Minister Merkel visited those sites located some 100-120 km from the Turkish-Syrian border. A visit by the U.S. Foreign Minister Kerry is due to follow. Furthermore, the “Syrian National Coalition” will be holding a meeting in Istanbul to nominate the “Prime Minister” of the “interim government”. Meanwhile, Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan is continuing his vitriolic attacks against Syria’s President al-Assad in an effort to cover up his government's monumental war crimes against Syria.
