Turkey Says “Massive Escalation” Under Way In Syria As Saudis Launch Airstrikes

As US proxies in Syria, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, make threatening noises, Russia deployes 4 of its Su35 strike aircraft to the war zone – as if Putin is saying to NATO, “Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough”

Didn’t the leading military powers just agree to a ceasefire in Syria, you might well ask.

Well yes, just yesterday the print and television media was full of the ‘ceasefire’ the major powers had agreed to avert a humanitarian crisis in Syria. The usual suspects led by Scooby – doo villain lookalike John Kerry the Unites States Secretary of State mouth pious words about peace into the proffered microphones, paparazzi papped away with their cameras, breakthroughs were announced, <del>undeserving warmongers</del> world leaders were praised and everyone forgot the ISIS and Al Nusra Islamist groups who are involved in 99% of the fighting were not part of the agreement.

But the whole ceasefire thing was a scam. ISIS and al Nusra have been supported by the USA’s Central Intelligence Agency, funded by Turkey and armed by Saudi Arabia from the start.

So they are still bombing the allied coalition led by the USA and flicking V signs at Russian and Iranian forces because they daren’t actually shoot at the Russians in case it reveals to Putin’s boys where the rebels are hiding.

So it was looking like business as usual. Then we saw this:

Turkey Says “Massive Escalation” In Syria Imminent As Saudis Set To Launch Airstrikes

(from Zero hedge) Even as all sides – including the US, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and select rebel groups – pretend to be working towards a ceasefire and a diplomatic solution to the five year conflict in Syria, actions speak louder than words, and to put it as succinctly as possible, everyone is still fighting.

In fact, the fighting is more intense than ever. Russia and Hezbollah are closing in on Aleppo, the country’s largest city and a key urban center where rebels are dug in for what amounts to a last stand. If the city is liberated by the government (and yes, “liberated” is more accurate than “falls” because occupied territory belongs to the Syrian government, not to Sunni extremists), Assad will have regained control of the country’s backbone in the west.

That would effectively mean the end of the rebellion and the Gulf monarchies, not to mention Turkey, are not happy about it. “The main battle is about cutting the road between Aleppo and Turkey, for Turkey is the main conduit of supplies for the terrorists,” Assad said in an interview with AFP on Friday.

That supply line has been severed and now, it’s do or die time for the rebels’ Sunni benefactors in Ankara, Riyadh, and Doha. Either intervene or watch as Hezbollah rolls up the opposition under cover of Russian airstrikes, restoring the Assad government and securing the Shiite crescent for the Iranians.

As we documented extensively this week, the Saudis and the Turks are now set to invade. Assad has promised to “confront them”, which of course means that the IRGC and Hassan Nasrallah’s army are set to come into direct contact with Turkish and Saudi troops, setting the stage for an all-out sectarian war that will almost invariably end up pitting NATO against the Russians. Note that this is different from Yemen, where Tehran fights via proxies rather than directly against the Saudi military.

On Saturday the stakes were raised when Turkey said Saudi Arabia is set to send warplanes to Incirlik.

As a reminder, access to Incirlik was the carrot Erdogan used last summer to convince NATO to acquiesce to Ankara’s brutal crackdown on the PKK. “Let me wage war against my political rivals, and you can use our airbase,” is a fair approximation of Erdogan’s proposition.

Now, it appears the Saudis are set to use the base as a staging ground for strikes in Syria.

We new media journos tend to be ahead of the wave in news reporting of course (well those of us who can enter and move around in ‘the dark web’ without trepidation anyway – it’s not all private data for sale, malware merchants, goat porn and bomb making instructions you know) so over a week ago I was able to report:

Turkey and Sadui Arabia Already Have Troops Fighting In Syria

Now the Turkish government is admitting the ‘ceasefire is a joke:

Realistically we think this Turkish / Saudi action will amount to to little more than a calculated provocation to Russia NATO might want war against Russia and China, but they don’t want to fire the first shot because the public opinion backlash will undermine the push for global government which is the real agenda behind all this shite.
