    SYRIA Turns MISSILES Towards TURKEY.....

    http://www.presstv.ir/detail/212313.html

    Turkish sources say that Syria has turned its Russian-made SCUD missiles towards Turkey, Press TV reports.

    The sources said that the missiles have been deployed in Syria's Kamisili and Ayn Diwar regions, Press TV's Ankara correspondent reported on Saturday.

    The two regions are close to the borders of Turkey and Iraq.

    Damascus says the unrest has been largely incited by elements that are well-paid and armed by foreign powers. Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed in the turmoil.....snip~

    A little misdirection and focus on Iran.....all the while the French, Turks, Brits, and of course, us! All making moves on Syria. Seems Al-Jazeera, Asian times, BBC, Newoutlets on that side of the World are out there telling it like it is. While Western Corporate Media only gives us partial truths.

    While the French were the first to call for intervention. Obama had already stated Assad should step-down. Applied sanctions. Then more sanctions. According to Cartalucci from the strategic studies Regime Change Has been in Implementation the whole time since 2005. But amped up under Obama after he won the Presidency.

    Then we have the big deception to the World. The Nobel Peace prize. Given out by whom? Again it looks like all the Western powers that be and our Two Political Parties are all on the same page. The rest of the World appears to know both sides to the coin. All are on the same page.

    Can someone explain to me? Why the American people are not! The Neo-Cons and Neo-Libs have shown the American people they have given into the Global Order thing. The NWO. Reality slapping us in the face and the American People remain divided. (IMO even more divided than by just political party and ideology). Giving-up US Sovereignty, listening to European Economists, and the Worlds Independant Experts. While our so called allies weaken us with their involvement into other countries affairs.

    Do they still make new SCUDS or are those the same ancient missiles from the 70s that can barely be aimed?

    One thing about people here at home, while we may be divided between Republicans and Democrats, more people than ever realize that something is seriously wrong. Congress's approval rating is 9% I think? I believe that people will start to look beyond the two parties for solutions and that we have the seeds planted for a more significant change in the status quo.

    Those are the newer Russian Version and they can be aimed. Not like Saddams! But because they are mobile they are Scuds.

    Plus we know Syria has Mined their Borders. There was some rallies in Support of Assad and then somebody attacked the Baath HQ yesterday. There goes that theory on Peaceful protestors. Plus now The Russians have their validation as to what the West and NATO is doing. Putin I can see him rubbing his hands greedily like.

    Granny says, "Syria tryin' to make a regional war out of it...

    Look at how Syria neighbors are drawn into its war
    Nov 12,`12 - Syria's neighbors are increasingly being drawn into the country's civil war in a variety of ways, whether militarily or due to an exodus of Syrians fleeing the fighting at home. The spillover has raised concerns that the nearly 20-month-long conflict between Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime and rebels trying to topple him could endanger the entire Middle East.
    Here is a look at how neighboring states are being affected by Syria's bloodletting:

    TURKEY

    Turkey has struck the Syrian military repeatedly in response to shelling and mortar rounds from Syria since Oct. 3, when shells from Syria struck the Turkish village of Akcakale, killing two women and three children. The incident prompted NATO to convene an emergency meeting and Turkey sent tanks and anti-aircraft batteries to the area. Turkey's military has also scrambled fighter jets after Syrian helicopters flew close to the border. There are about 120,000 Syrian refugees sheltering in Turkish camps, with up to 70,000 more living in Turkey outside the camps. Thousands more wait at the border, held up as Turkey struggles to cope with the influx. Turkey also hosts much of the opposition and rebel leadership. Turkey has called for a buffer zone in Syria where the opposition and civilians would be protected, a step that would likely require international enforcement of a no-fly zone. Russia and China have blocked robust moves against the Syrian regime at the U.N. Security Council, and the United States has been reluctant to use its military in another Mideast conflict.

    ISRAEL

    Israel on Monday became the second country to strike the Syrian military, after Turkey. An Israeli tank hit a Syrian armored vehicle after shells from fighting in Syria exploded in Israel-controlled Golan Heights. A day earlier, Israel fired a warning shot near a group of Syrian fighters. Syrian shells have exploded inside the Golan several times in recent weeks damaging apple orchards, sparking fires and spreading panic but causing no injuries. In early November, three Syrian tanks entered the Golan demilitarized zone, and in a separate incident an Israeli patrol vehicle was peppered with bullets fired from Syria; no one was hurt in the incident and the Israeli military deemed it accidental. There is concern in Israel that Assad may try to spark a conflict with Israel, opening up the potential for attacks by Lebanon's militant Hezbollah and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Israel has also warned that Syria's chemical weapons could be turned on the Jewish state. Still, while no friend of Assad, Israel is also worried that if he is toppled, Syria could fall into the hands of Islamic extremists or descend into sectarian warfare.

    LEBANON

    Mortars and shells from the Syrian side regularly crash in Lebanon, causing several casualties, though Lebanese forces have never fired back. More dangerously, Syria's conflict has heightened deep rivalries and sectarian tensions in its smaller neighbor. Lebanon is divided between pro-Assad and anti-Assad factions, a legacy of the nearly three decades when Damascus all but ruled Lebanon, until 2005. Assad's ally, the Hezbollah militia is Lebanon's strongest political and military movement. On Oct. 19, a car bomb assassinated Lebanon's top intelligence chief, Wissam al-Hassan. Many in Lebanon blamed Syria and Hezbollah for the assassination. The northern Lebanese city of Tripoli has seen repeated clashes between Sunni Muslims and Alawites - the Shiite offshoot sect to which Assad belongs. Battles in the city in May and August killed at least 23 people total and wounded dozens. The kidnapping of Lebanese Shiites in Syria by rebels has also had repercussions in Lebanon. In May, Shiites blocked roads and burned tires in protest over the abductions, and later in the summer a powerful Shiite clan took 20 Syrians and a Turk in Lebanon captive in retaliation, all of whom have since been released. Lebanon also shelters about 100,000 Syrian refugees.

    Israel reports 'direct hits' on Syrian target
    [i]Nov 12,`12 -- Israeli tanks struck a Syrian artillery launcher Monday after a stray mortar shell flew into Israel-held territory, the first direct clash between the neighbors since the Syrian uprising began nearly two years ago.
    The confrontation fueled new fears that the Syrian civil war could drag Israel into the violence, a scenario with grave consequences for the region. The fighting has already spilled into Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey. "We are closely monitoring what is happening and will respond appropriately. We will not allow our borders to be violated or our citizens to be fired upon," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday in a speech to foreign ambassadors.

    While officials believe President Bashar Assad has no interest in picking a fight with Israel, they fear the embattled Syrian leader may try to draw Israel into the fighting in a bout of desperation. Israeli officials believe it is only a matter of time before Syrian rebels topple the longtime leader. The conflict has already spilled over into several of Syria's other neighbors - whether in direct violence or in the flood of refugees fleeing the bloodshed. More than 36,000 Syrians have been killed in the fighting, according to estimates by anti-Assad activists.

    On Monday, a Syrian fighter jet bombed a rebel-held area hugging the border with Turkey three times, killing 15 to 20 people, according to a Turkish official. Separately, eight wounded Syrians died in Turkey, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media.

    Potential Israeli involvement in Syria could be far more explosive. The bitter enemies both possess air forces, tanks and significant arsenals of missiles and other weapons. Although the Israeli military is more modern and powerful, Syria has a collection of chemical weapons that could wreak havoc if deployed. Fighting between the countries could also drag in Syria's close ally, the Lebanese guerrilla group Hezbollah, or Islamic militant groups in the Gaza Strip on Israel's southern flank.

    Syria doesn't want peace. They will push just like some others in the ME to try to start another war. It's all they know. They can't even stop killing each other. Instead of uniting they only want to destroy and the ones hurt the most by this is the children.
