Turkey sees NATO missiles deployment warning to Damascus, backers

ANKARA: NATO’s decision to approve the deployment of advanced surface-to-air missile batteries in Turkey turns the 28-member military alliance into a participant in the ongoing Syrian crisis.

“As of Tuesday, NATO has become engaged in the Syrian crisis, making crystal clear that (it) will defend its member, Turkey, in case of any attacks originating from Syria,” Mehmet Seyfettin Erol, head of Ankara’s International Strategic and Security Research Center (USGAM) told Xinhua over the phone.

“Indirectly, the decision of NATO to send missile batteries to Turkey is a message intended to convey to regional and international backers of the embattled president Bashar al-Assad regime as well,” Erol said, stressing that these countries that traditionally support Syria may have to think twice now before making a move.

    Truth be told, NATO has planned and helped carnage in Syria over 21 months ago, simultaneously with barbaric aggression on Libya.
    However, considering that “foot soldiers” made of Jihadi mercenaries on Saudi and Qatari payroll, can not crack the spine of secular Government of Syria, NATO is “forced” to remove its bloody gloves citing “collective protection of endangered” member state like Turkey.

    Never mind huge economic problems coupled with growing secessionist movement in the U.S, its dysfunctional Government seems to be interested only in accommodating agenda of its Military Industrial Complex and International Banking Mafia by continuing with more BLOODY WARS of AGGRESSION using whatever pretexts and scare tactic!

    I cant wait to see what will happen to Natos expansionist plans once the spending cuts are forced upon its leader the USA.
    With the U.S economy running trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see, cuts to their military spending will come, if not voluntarily which their congress is not able to achieve then the markets will determine their fate.
