Dangerous Crossroads: NATO Missiles in Turkey Pointing at Syria

source: globalresearch.ca
NATO has approved of stationing US-made Patriot missiles along Turkey’s border, for what it claims is “defense.” Over the past two years Syria has been fighting terrorists armed, funded, and equipped by NATO, of which Turkey is a member. Turkey has admitted its role in harboring and providing logistics for foreign fighters flooding across the border into Syria, many of whom are confirmed members of Al Qaeda. Despite this, Syria has gone through extraordinary lengths to avoid a confrontation with Turkey.

Free Syrian Army (FSA) Building Military Base for Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO)

source: globalresearch.ca

TEHRAN (FNA)- The so-called Free Syrian Army, the main armed rebel group fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s government, announced that it has set up two battalions called ‘Martyr Saddam Hussein’ in the cities of Idlib and Deir al-Zour in Syria.

In a blatant act of defiance and in a move aimed at provoking the feelings of Kurds in general and Syrian Kurds in particular, the FSA formed the two battalions.

Analysts believe that these acts, which are condemned and seen as worrisome by Kurds and all Syrians, might push the opponents to retract and backtrack on their moves against Bashar Assad’s government.

Turkey Shells Syria for Sixth Day, Says “Worst Case Scenario”

source: infowars.com

The Turkish military shelled Syria for a sixth straight day Monday after the provincial governor’s office claimed a Syrian round landed in a cotton field near the town of Altinozu in the border province of Hatay.

The CIA-backed Free Syria Army is based in Antakya, the largest city in Hatay. The FSA is armed and funded by the Gulf States of Saudi Arabia and Qatar and receives logistics from the United States. As we noted in September, there is ample evidence that a large number of FSA rebels are in fact members of al-Qaeda.

The Hatay city of Akcakale is a key supply route for the FSA and other so-called rebels.

Turkey Attempts to Trigger a NATO-led War against Syria

Turkey fires rounds into Syria after unknown attackers fire mortars into Turkish border town.

After over a year of harboring foreign terrorists and supporting their operations near and across the Turkish-Syrian border, NATO-member Turkey has claimed it has retaliated with military force against “targets” inside Syria for an alleged attack on Turkish territory that it has blamed on the Syrian government.

Despite heavily armed listed-terrorist organizations operating in large numbers on both sides of the Turkish border with Turkey’s explicit approval and logistical support, the government in Ankara appears to have excluded the possibility that these terrorist forces, not the Syrian military, were responsible for the attack which consisted of mortar rounds the armed militants are known to widely use.

Federal Court Rules In Favour Of Indefinite Detention Of US Citizens

source: infowars.com

A federal appeals court has ruled that the US government can still indefinitely detain citizens should it wish to do so, under the Obama Administration’s National Defense Authorization Act.

The ruling came in the form of an extension of an “emergency” stay of a district court judge’s order that had previously struck down the defence bill’s provisions altogether.

Last month District Judge Katherine Forrest permanently blocked the NDAA provision, saying that “First Amendment rights have already been harmed and will be harmed by the prospect of (the law) being enforced.”

However, the very next day the Obama administration moved to appeal the decision in an attempt to reinstate the indefinite detention provisions. The administration characterized the ruling by Forrest as unconstitutional.

The Anarchist’s Diet by William Green

source: lewrockwell.com

It came to me like a revelation on my morning commute: Bread is a tool of the state. It sounds crazy, I know, but it is clear, and in the weeks since then, the “staff of life,” the very symbol of food itself, has become to me a symbol of the domestication of humankind. It has also suggested one more way I can work to strengthen the individual and weaken the state.

I had recently read The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson and was eliminating grain from my diet. According to Sisson, grains are a recent addition to the human diet that we are not well adapted to and cause many health problems, including obesity and diabetes. He claims that by adjusting our diets and lifestyles to fit our biological make-up, we can regain some of the health and vitality that our primal ancestors had. I had begun to adjust my diet to consist of mostly meats, nuts, eggs, fruits, and vegetables, and I lost weight, gained muscle tone and strength, and felt better than I had in a long time (for example, my previous IBS symptoms had all but disappeared).

US-NATO Sponsored Syria Terrorists: 40 killed, 90 wounded in Aleppo blasts

source: globalresearch.ca

BEIRUT –– At least 40 people were killed and 90 wounded, most of them soldiers, when three car bombs struck the heart of Syria’s second city Aleppo on Wednesday, a monitoring group said.

“A medical source said that at least 40 people were killed and 90 injured,” said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. “Most of them were regime troops.”

Meanwhile, official television channel Al Ikhbariya said 31 people were killed and dozens wounded.

“The toll could rise because many people were badly injured,” a city official told AFP, shortly after three bombs exploded around Saadallah Jabiri Square, near a military officers’ club and a hotel.

Two of the blasts hit the area near the club within a minute of each other.

A third car bomb then exploded some 150 metres (yards) away in the Bab Jnein district, at the entrance of the Old City neighbourhood of Aleppo.

Bradley Manning Trial: A Mockery of Justice

source: globalresearch.ca

Bradley Manning’s lawyer, David Coombs, has filed a 117-page motion calling for the dismissal of all charges with prejudice, for lack of a speedy trial. When he argues the motion at Ft. Meade, October 29 – November 2, Bradley will have been in pretrial confinement for nearly 900 days.

It’s appropriate that David Coombs’ longest motion of this trial yet, which argues for dismissal of all charges, details PFC Bradley Manning’s extraordinarily and illegally long pretrial confinement. The prosecution’s repeated and unjustifiable delays point “unmistakably to the conclusion that PFC Manning’s statutory and constitutional speedy trial rights have been trampled upon with impunity.”

Guantanamo Bay: The Model for an American Police State?

by John W. Whitehead @ lewrockwell.com

“The means of defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home.” ~ James Madison

For most Americans, the detention center at Guantanamo Bay – once the topic of heated political debate by presidential hopeful Barack Obama but rarely talked about by the incumbent President Obama – has become a footnote in the government’s ongoing war on terror.

Yet for the approximately 167 detainees still being held in that godforsaken gulag, 86 of whom have been cleared for release yet continue to be imprisoned at the facility, Guantanamo Bay is a lesson in injustice, American-style. It is everything that those who founded America vigorously opposed: kidnapping, torture, dehumanizing treatment, indefinite detention, being “disappeared” with no access to family or friends, and little hope of help from the courts.

Big Sis: Obama Ready to Sign Surveillance Grid Executive Order

By Kurt Nimmo (Infowars.com)

Homeland Security boss Janet Napolitano told a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on Wednesday that a blatantly unconstitutional Obama administration executive order is “still being drafted in the inter-agency process” and “is close to completion depending on a few issues that need to be resolved at the highest levels.”

Obama will implement crucial element of the surveillance state by executive fiat.
The latest Obama EO – he has issued 135 thus far – is a response to the failure of a cybersecurity bill to pass in the Senate. The Lieberman-Collins Cyber-security bill failed 52-46. Following the vote, Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, said “the President is determined to do absolutely everything we can to better protect our nation against today’s cyber threats and we will do that” despite the will of the American people.
