The dirtiest war/corrected
Posted by Charles II on October 7, 2015
One step closer to outright war between US and Russia. Kareem Shaheen, The Guardian:
The row threatens to further escalate tensions over Moscow’s airstrikes to support the regime of Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad. The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said his country could not endure Russian violations of its airspace in its campaign in Syria and said Russia risked “losing” Turkey.
“Nato has issued a stern ultimatum,” Erdoğan was quoted as saying ….
Nato’s secretary-general, Jens Stoltenberg, had said earlier on Tuesday that the Russian incursions into Turkish airspace did not appear to be an accident, because the incursions had happened twice and lasted for a long time.
If Turkey shoots at Russia and Russia shoots back, Turkey can invoke the NATO mutual defense clause.
Meanwhile, ISIS is trying to score the components of a dirty bomb. Maybe they already have. Adam Johnson of FAIR analyzes the AP report and points out that the FBI states that there is no known connection to ISIS. AP just headlined it that way to sell newspapers at the expense of honesty. Jerks.
