“BEFORE OUR VERY EYES” NATO packs it in; Turkey on the verge of a nervous breakdown by Thierry Meyssan

“BEFORE OUR VERY EYES” NATO packs it in; Turkey on the verge of a nervous breakdown by Thierry Meyssan Erdogan_01-2fb99-06267
On October 8, the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CTSO)
began maneuvers dubbed “Inviolable Fraternity” (“НЕРУШИМОЕ БРАТСТВО”).
The scenario focuses on the deployment of a peace force in an imaginary
country where international jihadists and terrorist organizations
operate against a backdrop of ethnic and confessional divisions. The
accredited diplomatic corps, which was invited to attend the exercises,
listened attentively to the opening address of the deputy secretary
general of the organization. He clearly indicated that the CTSO is
preparing for an eventual intervention in the Greater Middle East. And
for those feigning deafness, Nikolai Bordyuzha specified that his deputy
was not speaking of Afghanistan.

The Geneva Declaration negotiated by Kofi Annan on June 30 foresaw
the deployment of a peace force if the Syrian government and the
opposition jointly made the demand. The Free Syrian Army rejected the
accord. The term “opposition” refers only to the political parties who
have been meeting since in Damascus, under the aupices of the Russian
and Chinese ambassadors. As the Geneva Accord was validated by the
Security Council, the deployment of the “blue chapkas” can be set in motion without requiring an ad hocresolution.
Valery Semerikov stated that 4,000 men had already been enlisted in the
Peace Force with 46,000 others in the wings available for the rapid

With this as background, the signs of
Western retreat from Syria are multiplying. The influx of Western arms
and combatants is drying up except for the ongoing transfers funded by
Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Even more surprising: on six successive occasions, the NATO Command
at Incirlik gave jihadists instructions to regroup within specified
zones to prepare for huge offensives. While the Syrian Arab Army, which
was formed to confront the Israeli Army, may be ill-adapted for guerilla
warfare, it is highly effective in conventional combat. In each of
these engagements, it easily encircled and wiped out the assembled units
of the Free Syrian Army. Though the initial defeats suffered by the
jihadists could have been attributed to a tactical error or to an
incompetent commander, after the sixth debacle another hypothesis must
be considered: that NATO is willingly sending these combatants to their

In contrast to popular perceptions, the motivation of the jihadists
is not, properly speaking, ideological or religious but rather,
aesthetic. They are not looking to die for a cause and are not focused
on the future of Jerusalem. They strike a romantic posture and seek to
intensify their sensations whether through drugs or through death. Their
behavior makes them easy to manipulate; they seek extreme situations
which they are then placed in, and their movements are totally steered.
Over the last years, Prince Bandar bin Sultan became the leading
architect of these assemblages, including those of al-Qaeda. He supplied
them with preachers promising a paradise where seventy virgins would
provide them with ecstatic pleasures not if they accomplished a
particular military or political feat but only if they died as martyrs
wherever Bandar had need for them.

It seems Prince Bandar has disappeared from the scene since the
attack on him on July 26. He may well be dead. From Morroco to Zinjiang,
the jihadists have been left to their own devices, without any real
coordination. They could be recruited by any number of actors, as the
recent assassination of the U.S. Ambassador in Libya confirms. As a
result, Washington wants to unload this risky and burdensome rabble or
at the very least reduce their number. The orders that NATO gives to the
jihadists are designed to expose them to fire by the Syrian Arab Army
which is eliminating them en masse.

Recently, the French police killed a French Salafist who attacked a
Jewish business establishment. The investigation that followed revealed
that he belonged to a network including individuals that had gone to do
jihad in Syria. The British police made a similar discovery four days

The message from Paris and London is that the French and British
killed in Syria were not agents on a secret mission but fanatics who
acted on their own initiative. This is obviously false because certain
of these jihadists were carrying communication instruments of NATO
specification, supplied by France and the United Kingdom. Whatever
the case, these events are marking the end of the Franco-British
involvement alongside the Free Syrian Army, while Damascus discretely
exchanges its prisoners. A page has been turned.

Under the circumstances, one can
understand the frustration of Turkey and the Wahhabist monarchies who at
the request of the Alliance invested in the secret war unreservedly,
but who now must assume alone the failure of the operation. Going for
broke, Ankara threw itself into a series of provocations designed to
prevent NATO from pulling out.
Anything goes, from the firing of
Turkish artillery into Syrian territory to the pirating of a civil
airline. But these gestures are counterproductive.

Specifically, the Syrian air plane
coming from Moscow which was turned around by Turkish fighters contained
no weapons but rather high-explosive detection equipment to be used for
the protection of civilians. Turkey, actually, did not seek to prevent
Russia from delivering material aimed at protecting Syrian civilians
from terrorism but sought instead to increase tension by mistreating the
Russian passengers and refusing to allow their ambassador to render
assistance. Wasted effort: NATO did not react to the imaginary
accusations put forward by Recep Tayip Erdogan. The only consequence is
that President Putin has postponed sine die his visit to Ankara originally scheduled for the first half of December.

There is a long way still to go on the path to peace. But even if
Turkey now or the Wahhabist monarchies later attempt to prolong the war,
a process has been set in motion. NATO is packing up and the media are
turning their gaze to other horizons.
