Turkey Forces a Syria-Bound Plane From Moscow to Land, NATO to help Turkey

Turkey Forces a Syria-Bound Plane From Moscow to Land: Turkish F-16 jets forced a passenger plane traveling from Moscow to Damascus to land yesterday after intelligence reports said it was carrying cargo banned by civil aviation rules, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said.

According to the report, U.S. officials familiar with the operation said the mission includes drawing up plans to try to insulate Jordan, a strong U.S., from the upheaval in Syria and to avoid the kind of clashes now occurring along the border of Syria and Turkey. “We have been working closely with our Jordanian partners on a variety of issues related to Syria for some time now,”

 NATO will 'protect and defend Turkey' if Syria launches an attack, says head of alliance  Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said NATO will support Turkey if it is attacked by Syria. Tensions have been escalating since Syrian shells struck a border town in Turkey killing five civilians last week. Syria's revolt against President Bashar al-Assad threatening to draw in regional powers.

 The Chinese spokesman's statement came at a time when the government of Recep Tayyip Erdogan continues escalating the situation and threats of action against Damascus while going ahead with smuggling terrorists and weapons into Syria to disturb its stability. 

You have to be very concerned about what is happening in Syria. I still have a problem believing Russia, China, and Iran are  going to allow Syria to fall to Democracy. 

What we saw after the voter fraud in Iran was mild compared to what the IRG will do if this movement spreads to Iran. I really wish Bashar would step down but Iran is the elephant in the room any way you look at it. 

The total middle east breakdown we have written about numerous times is well under way. We can only hope we keep it from erupting into WW3.

In closing: You know Putin just got himself reelected as President, he did this so he could be at the helm of Russia as he like me knows 100% that world war is our future. He plans on marshaling China who is rapidly building a more formidable military and whoever he can to take on US hegemony.

Russia watched helplessly as we had our way in Libya. Putin blames what is happening in Syria on our interference and Libya for training the protesters to fight against Bashar Al-Assad.

Putin is going to do everything possible to keep us from helping the Syrian people and I really feel for them. I do not see this going down the way Libya did and Iran and Russia are going to make sure it does not.

 I am afraid the Syrian people are going to be sacrificed, sacrificed in what is merely an opening salvo in this the wars for future dominance. I  heard that Russia is gathering forces to go into Iran via Armenia for a quick strike through Georgia. 

We have a showdown setting up that looks disastrous for the worlds future. It will be a miracle if we can keep this from turning into WW3!

Something has to give pretty soon. We have sanctions on Iran and Syria. Israel has sanctions on Palestine. Iran is not getting any backing from Saudi Arabia although Russia is trying to provide assistance. I think China doesn't want to get in the middle of this fray. Lebanon relations with Syria are breaking down. And it's anyones guess who to trust with the Shia, Kurds, Sunni and other players thrown into this mix. And if Assad steps down then what?
Mr. Romney thinks that we can just arm the "good guys"? In the process we have also landed up arming the radicals who will turn on us once this is over. This isn't some Saturday morning cowboy western we're talking about here.
