War Warning: Serious Grounds to Believe Turkey Planning Military Invasion of Syria

21st Century Wire says…

Are things about to go from bad to worse in the Syrian crisis?

Watch a video of this report here:

Russian Major General Igor Konashenkov has announced that Russia now has ‘serious grounds’ to believe Turkey is preparing an illegal ground invasion of Syria:

“We have serious grounds to suspect intensive preparations by Turkey for a military invasion on the territory of the sovereign state of Syria,”

“We are recording more and more signs of concealed preparations by the Turkish military,”

“We are surprised that the talkative representatives of the Pentagon, NATO and numerous organizations allegedly protecting human rights in Syria, despite our call to respond to these actions, still remain silent,”

“Such steps carried out by a country, which is a NATO member state, in no way contribute to the strengthening of trust and security in Europe.”

Turkey also recently denied a Russian request to fly a surveillance aircraft over the Turkish-Syrian border, which Konashenkov calls “a dangerous precedent and an attempt to conceal illegal military activity near the border with Syria.”

The Major General added that, “if someone in Ankara thinks that the cancelation of the flight by the Russian observers will enable hiding something then they’re unprofessional.”

If Turkey is planning to invade Syria they will probably look to Israel for help, as the two countries seek to establish oil and gas pipelines through Syrian territory. It is well documented that Turkey has already been working with ISIS to smuggle stolen oil out of Syria.

The Turks already shot down a Russian jet in a ruthless act of aggression, so it would not be surprising if they looked to escalate things further. In response, Russia deployed its S-400 missile system, meaning it will not take long for things to spiral out of control should Turkey choose to invade.

Are we closer to World War III than ever before?

    We are closer to World War number 3 since we had World War 2. However does that mean it will be this week, next week or next 50 years?

    I can’t predict that bit. But all the right machinations are nearing totality.

    • scotbot

      It’ll come after (though not immediately after) the global economic collapse, which many people think will be this year. So the earliest we can expect outright warfare between the superpowers would be next year. But is coming, and coming soon. Best get prepared to flee.

      • Don Gravelle

        Flee to where?

        • scotbot

          Well, if you’re in cities, flee to the wilderness.

          • John Cook

            Your reply made me shiver SkotBot – I live in the ‘wilderness’ now and the idea of masses of unprepared city dwellers descending on me and my meager resources is terrifying.

          • scotbot

            They’ll come whether you like it or not. So best that you be mobile lest they be unfriendly.

      • John Cook

        I suspect they might make it happen before the economic crash – that way the banksters will dodge the blame – people will blame Russia for the crash…

  • Meltonmark

    Always the same warmongers! Every significant conflict of my lifetime has had the same warmongering countries with their imperialist noses in them somewhere along the line.

    • Galahad Threepwood

      You’re referring to the Anglo-US Zionists, fighting wars for Israel

      • Shawn Chapman

        Yes, yes! We all know — every war, anywhere, anytime, is because Jooows! Pffffff! I wish you could see my eyes roll.

        • Operant_Conditioner

          If Turkey isn’t in cahoots with Israel, they certainly are fellow travelers. It is already well known that Israel covertly lends training and support to ISIS, including providing medical care to their wounded in Israeli hospitals. And isn’t it interesting that now that the Zionist’s proxy army, ISIS is about to get obliterated in Aleppo by the Syrians with Russia providing air support, NATO member Turkey is suddenly taking an aggressive war stance. WWIII may very well be just around the corner as the masks are coming off, revealing the true players behind this proxy war playing out in Syria.

            I know it’s a popular notion these days to base opinion on the hearsay of self convictions, but what ever happened to basing opinions on facts?

          • desertvoice

            You never really know on which side the Israelis are. That is why they survive every crisis for so long!

        • John Cook

          Not ‘Joooows’, they’re Eskimos!

  • Rumplestiltskin

    I hope Putin bombs the “S” out of Turkey, as they are aiding and abetting ISIS in more ways than one. If they invade, Russian planes should wipe out everything on the south side of border between Turkey and Syria.

    If Turkey believes Russia won’t bomb them because it may have NATO behind it, they had better rethink their strategies. While Russia will more than likely not bomb the nation of Turkey, they can and will take out all Turkish military entering Syria.

    • Muhammad Abbass

      If the Turks go in with Saudi and Israeli help, then Russia has the choice of packing up and going home, or of standing their ground and necessarily strengthening their hand by increasing troops and involvement dramatically. Given that Russia is aware of the overall strategy which targets them anyway, I believe they will stand and fight. That won’t be a party the Iranians or Yemenis will feel inclined to stay out of and things will be very serious after that. This will lead to the bombs and missiles headed for all three nations, SA, Turkey and Israel.

      • John Cook

        I think the Eskimos will continue their pretense of not being ‘involved’. Which is ironic in that destroying the nation-state of Syria is absolutely Essential for the ‘Greater Israel’ that is supposedly ‘given’ to them by their psycopathic ‘god’ – they have been driving the conflict all along.

    • desertvoice

      You may well be prophetic. Which is why NATO must be ready! Putin cannot bully NATO! Turkey, right now, has a right to invite NATO to protect its military!

  • Uncle_Meat

    Johnny Turk is asking for a fat lip and a black eye.

  • Muhammad Abbass

    Turkish and Saudi leadership have crossed the rubicon of sanity and appear committed to whatever it takes to achieve their desire to see Syria broken and the Assad clan gone. War in the region is inevitable and not only NATO but Russia is bound to be pulled into it. It isn’t a matter of if, but when. Several incidents have come and gone, each looking more serious and war trigger like than the last, whilst Russia and allies manage to pull the rug out each time, the attempts get more desperate and blatant thereafter. An outright invasion obviously will be the last straw but they will pull that straw when it looks like the last one too.

  • desertvoice

    Save the people of Aleppo! This alone is what matters to me in Syria right now! Putin cannot stop valiant nations from coming to the aid of women and children!
