On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered a blistering critique of US foreign policy to the UN General Assembly.
On Tuesday, Barack Obama shoved a knife in Putins back. This is from Reuters:
France will discuss with its partners in the coming days a proposal by Turkey and members of the Syrian opposition for a no-fly zone in northern Syria, French President Francois Hollande said on Monday
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in the coming days will look at what the demarcation would be, how this zone could be secured and what our partners think, Hollande told reporters on the sidelines of the annual United Nations General Assembly
Hollande said such a proposal could eventually be rubber-stamped with a U.N. Security Council resolution that would give international legitimacy to whats happening in this zone. (France, partners to discuss northern Syria safe zone: Hollande, Reuters)
Hollande is a liar and a puppet. He knows the Security Council will never approve a no-fly zone. Russia and China have already said so. And theyve explained why they are opposed to it, too. Its because they dont want another failed state on their hands like Libya, which is what happened last time the US and NATO imposed a no-fly zone.
But thats beside the point. The real reason the no-fly zone issue has resurfaced is because it was one of the concessions Obama made to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for the use of Incirlik airbase. Washington has kept the terms of that deal secret, but Hollande has let the cat out of the bag.
So who put sock-puppet Hollande up to this no-fly zone nonsense?
Why the Obama administration, of course. Does anyone seriously believe that Hollande is conducting his own independent policy in Syria? Of course not. Hollande is just doing what hes been told to do, just like he did when he was told to scotch the Mistral deal that cost France a whopping $1.2 billion. Washington and NATO didnt like the idea that France was selling state-of-the-art helicopter carriers to arch-rival Putin, so they ordered Hollande to put the kibosh on the deal. Which he did, because thats what puppets do; they obey their masters. Read all >>>
