'Syria-Turkey Fighting Continues'
'Syrian mortar fire again strikes a Turkish border village, prompting artillery retaliation for the fourth day'
10/7/2012 - Syrian mortar fire again struck a Turkish border village on Sunday, prompting artillery retaliation for the fourth day, AFP reported.
The Syrian mortar round hit Akcakale, the site of a similar strike on Wednesday, as Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said President Bashar al-Assad should be replaced by Vice President Faruq al-Shara.
The mortar round hit the grounds of a public building without causing casualties, Turkey's NTV news channel reported, adding that the building had been evacuated beforehand.
That incident caused a spike in tensions between the former allies and renewed fears of a broader conflict.
Turkey's parliament on Thursday gave the government the green light to use military force against Syria if necessary.
Note: Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists. 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. On October 4, 2012, Adm. George Stavridis, the commander of US European Command (USEUCOM) and NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), met with Turkish Chief of General Staff Gen. Necdet Ozel in Ankara. The meeting tooking place at General Staff headquarters was only announced a few days later to the public in a statement released by the General Staff. The talks were closed to the press and the statement did not elaborate on what Stavridis and Ozel discussed. It is clear that the US. and its allies wants to provoke a war between Turkey and Syria...
