War At Any Cost: Another Manufactured Pretext for War with Syria

– by Eric Draitser – 2012-06-26
The downing of a Turkish jet by the Syrian military last week was not merely a military incident making the possibility of an intervention and regional war much more likely. This episode was the most recent in a long and storied history of “international incidents” or provocations used by imperial powers as pretexts for military aggression. Without such incidents, the forces of imperialism are seen as nothing more than aggressors, out to destroy weaker nations in their own interests. However, with the necessary justifications that such episodes provide, those same powers can portray their wars as justified, necessary, and wholly righteous.

– by Rick Rozoff – 2012-06-26

Bilderberg Plan to Force NATO’s Turkey Into Syrian War

– by Patrick Henningsen – 2012-06-26
Last Friday saw a Turkish combat jet downed in the Mediterranean Sea by Syrian antiaircraft batteries. Syria insists that Turkey’s F-4 Phantom was shot down inside Syrian airspace. It appears to be a Neo-Ottoman baiting exercise by NATO, and for all intents and purposes, it has worked – so far. Regardless of the facts surrounding this event, the Western media machine and political operators will seek to quickly leverage this event in their efforts to move their inevitable Syrian bombardment project forward.

Iraq, Libya, Syria: “We Have No Right to Play God”. Or Do We?
– by Jonathan Cook – 2012-06-26
In a traditional cowboy movie, we know what to do: we look for the guy wearing the white hat to be sure who to cheer, and for the one wearing the black hat to know who deserves to die, preferably gruesomely, before the credits roll. If Hollywood learnt early to play on these most tribal of emotions, do we doubt that Washington’s political script-writers are any less sophisticated?
