As French President Francois Hollande calls for the “neutralization of Bashar Assad”, British Defence Minister Michael Fallon announces preparations for “Striking ISIL in Syria [...] [to] keep our streets safe here at home” and Turkish media proclaims “Aleppo to become the 82nd province of Turkey” ; it is worth remembering the September 2011 visits by the arch-war criminals French President Nicolas Sarkozy, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the NATO-occupied Libya.

As French President Francois Hollande calls for the “neutralization of Bashar Assad”, British Defence Minister Michael Fallon announces preparations for “Striking ISIL in Syria [...] [to] keep our streets safe here at home” and Turkish media proclaims “Aleppo to become the 82nd province of Turkey” ; it is worth remembering the September 2011 visits by the arch-war criminals French President Nicolas Sarkozy, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the NATO-occupied Libya.

Le Figaro, 16 September 2011



Libyans wellcome Sarkozy and Cameron as liberators

caption:  [French] head of state [Nicolas Sarkozy] and British Prime Minister [David Cameron] in a street of Benghazi yesterday.






“This does go beyond Libya; this is a moment when the Arab spring could become an Arab summer and we see democracy advance in other countries too. I believe you have the opportunity to give an example to others about what taking back your country can mean.”

[British Prime Minister David Cameron, joint press conference with French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Libya's “President” Mustafa Abdul Jalil, Corinthia Hotel, Tripoli, 15 September 2011]


(source:  Cameron and Sarkozy meet Libya's new leaders in Tripoli, The Guardian, 15 September 2011)






“Do you know what I was thinking, walking round the streets of Tripoli and the hospital corridors? I was dreaming that one day young Syrians will have the same opportunity young Libyans are enjoying today, and that one day they too can say: “democracy and peaceful revolution are for us”. So perhaps the best thing I can do is dedicate our visit to Tripoli to all those people hoping Syria, too, can one day be a free country.”

[French President Nicolas Sarkozy, joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Libya's “President” Mustafa Abdul Jalil, Corinthia Hotel, Tripoli, 15 September 2011]

“I was in Tunisia yesterday; I greeted people who carried out the Jasmine Revolution. Two days before that, I was in Egypt and I greeted people who have initiated the Arab Spring. Today, I am with you. [...]  
Those who repress their own people in Syria will not survive. The time of autocracies is over. Totalitarian regimes are disappearing. The rule of the people is coming.”

Help our country

[Turkey's] Prime Minister Erdogan paid a morale-boosting visit to the wounded [NATO's mercenary-terrorists] who were brought from Libya [to Ataturk Hospital in Ankara]. One of the wounded thanked Erdogan and asked for support: “Libyans are proud of you and give your name to their newborn babies. Please help our country.”

Flashbach to 2010:








During Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to the wounded passengers of the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara aid flotilla, Libyan-Irish “activist” Mahdi al-Harati kisses him on the forehead, Ataturk Hospital, Ankara, 3 June 2010 Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister and Turkey's Minister of Health Recep Akdag are standing aside. Qatar's Foreign Minister Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Mahmoud [not seen in this photo] is also present.

Libyan-Irish “activist” Mahdi al-Harati (*) was supposedly injured during Israeli army's assault on the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara aid flotilla on May 31, 2010 and then brought to Turkey for treatment. In reality, this assault, which resulted in the massacre 10 passangers (**), was a joint false-flag operation by Israel, Turkey, Britain and U.S. launched nine months before NATO's overt invasion of Libya and covert war on Syria.

Flashbach to 2014:








Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shakes hands with a wounded mercenary-terrorist, Israeli military field hospital in the occupied Golan near Israel's border with Syria, 18 February 2014
Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon stands aside.










Jerusalem Post, 19 February 2014



“On the day that the world powers are opening talks in Vienna with Iran, it is important for the world to see pictures from this place. This place separates the good in the world from the evil in the world. The good is Israel, which saves lives from the daily slaughter taking place in Syria. This is the true face of Israel. The evil, is Iran, which is arming those carrying out the slaughter. All the children wounded, to say nothing of those killed, were harmed as a result of Iran arming, financing and training the Assad regime in the mass slaughter it is perpetrating. From here, I want to say to the world, as the talks between the major powers and Iran are being resumed, that Iran has not changed its aggressive policies. Iran has not changed its brutal character; Iran continues to support the Assad regime, which is slaughtering its citizens. This is the true face of Iran, and the world must not forget that.”

[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, remarks to the press during his visit to a wounded NATO mercenary-terrorist who receivess treatment in a Israeli military field hospital in the occupied Golan near Israel's border with Syria, 18 February 2014]
