We know from leaked recordings in the past year that Turkey has been planning to use the tomb of Suleiman Shah as an excuse to invade Syria in hopes of sparking a war:
Turkey’s plan to invade its neighboring country of Syria was uncovered when a secret recording leaked of the highest officials discussing a plan to launch a military aggression on Syria by using the armed terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).
Erdoğan’s government was planning a false flag attack to be executed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) against the tomb of Suleiman Shah in Syria to justify the intervention of the Turkish army in Syria, therefore making an excuse to spark a war.
Suleiman Shah was the grandfather of Osman I, the founder of the Ottoman Empire, was buried in Aleppo. His grave was relocated in 1973, but it remains a Turkish extraterritorial enclave in Syria.
Well that plan has finally come to fruition:
TELEGRAPH – Almost 600 Turkish troops made an unprecedented incursion into Syria on Saturday night, rescuing dozens of soldiers guarding a historic tomb which had been surrounded by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) jihadists.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish president, said he “personally monitored” the operation, and claimed that no shots had been fired.
The 38 soldiers were brought back to Turkey with the 13th century tomb, which contains the remains of Suleyman Shah, grandfather of the Ottoman Empire’s founder.
DAILY NEWS EGYPT – The forces consisted of 39 tanks, 57 armoured personnel carriers, 100 vehicles and 572 soldiers, according to Turkish state run news agency Anadolu.
But they didn’t just ‘rescue’ their soldiers and bring back the remains of Suleiman Shah. They also sent another group to seize an area in Syria only yards away from Turkey:
Another group seized an area only yards from the Turkish border in Syria’s Ashma region, according to a statement from President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s office.
The ‘official’ plan is to move the tomb to this Ashma region, but we all know there is much more to this. By seizing this area in Syria and raising the Turkish flag, Turkey is trying to provoke Assad into defending it and thus sparking a war that ends with Assad’s ouster.
Syria responded to all of this angrily, according to Walid Shoebat:
“Turkey is not here only to provide all forms of support and tools for ISIS gangs and other terrorist organizations linked to al-Qaeda, but at the dawn of day they traveled here to show aggression on Syrian territory.”
Syria knows Turkey is trying to force its hand, and whether or not they respond to this invasion, they will eventually be forced to respond as Turkey keeps making excuses for taking more of its sovereign territory. The writing is now on the wall for Assad’s ouster, which is exactly what Erdogan has been calling for and what Walid Shoebat says is Erdogan’s plan to bring about the new grand caliphate.
The ISIS five-year plan includes extending the Caliphate into Libya and Europe.
At least 20,000 foreign fighters have streamed into Syria to join ISIS US intelligence officials say in an updated report.
CBS News reported:
Foreign fighters are streaming into Syria and Iraq in unprecedented numbers to join the Islamic State or Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or other extremist groups, including at least 3,400 from Western nations among 20,000 from around the world, U.S. intelligence officials say in an updated estimate of a top terrorism concern.
Intelligence agencies now believe that as many as 150 Americans have tried and some have succeeded in reaching in the Syrian war zone, officials told the House Homeland Security Committee in testimony prepared for delivery on Wednesday. Some of those Americans were arrested en route, some died in the area and a small number are still fighting with extremists.
The testimony and other data were obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press. A U.S. intelligence official confirmed the information to CBS News.
Nick Rasmussen, chief of the National Counterterrorism Center, said the rate of foreign fighter travel to Syria is without precedent, far exceeding the rate of foreigners who went to wage jihad in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen or Somalia at any other point in the past 20 years.
U.S. officials fear that some of the foreign fighters, who come from 90 countries, will return undetected to their homes in Europe or the U.S. to mount terrorist attacks. At least one of the men responsible for the attack on a satirical magazine in Paris had spent time with Islamic extremists in Yemen.
Texas Governor Rick Perry said a record number of illegal immigrants from Syria, Pakistan and Afghanistan have been apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border.
On Sunday’s State of the Union on CNN, Perry said the “historic record highs” of individuals from “countries that have substantial terrorist ties” threaten America’s national security.
Later on the program, Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX), the House Homeland Security Committee Chair, said Iranian terrorists have had plans to sneak across the border. He also said that others who want to do harm are seeking to exploit America’s porous border.
Perry also said that since 2008, 203,000 illegal immigrants have been put in Texas’ jails, and those illegal immigrants “have been responsible for 3,000 homicides and almost 8,000 sexual assaults.”
“I wish the President would respect that desire of Texans and the citizens of this country to secure the border,” Perry said. “That’s the real issue here—and one that all too often gets deflected by the conversation about unaccompanied minor children.”
Via Fox News:
No longer facing the imminent threat of a U.S. military strike, the Assad regime is dragging its feet on relinquishing its chemical weapons — leaving U.S. officials scrambling to pressure the Syrian government to honor the terms of last year’s deal.
The Obama administration acknowledged on Thursday that the regime has shipped out less than 5 percent of its chemical arms. The country is weeks behind schedule, and may miss next week’s deadline to ship all its chemical agents out of the country.
This, despite President Obama declaring in his State of the Union address that Syria’s chemical weapons “are being eliminated” thanks to American diplomacy.
Two words describe this administration’s foreign policies. Stupid Power!
