An excerpt from, "Turkey is the Source, Not Solution to ISIS and the Syrian Crisis" by Tony Cartalucci, Land Destroyer Report, February 15, 2016:
The flood of propaganda emanating from the West has one purpose - to justify a US-backed, Turkish-led offensive into Syrian territory to carve out long-sought after "safe zones" within which the West would protect the battered remnants of their terrorist proxy forces. The West is claiming "refugees" languish on the border, that Turkey cannot accept any further refugees, and that the only solution is invasion.Title: War Drums Beat Louder: Turkey Positions Military to Invade Syria.

The lies, one part predicated upon "humanitarianism," one part upon allegedly fighting "ISIS," have in reality long ago been laid to rest and well understood by an increasingly astute global audience. This is in part thanks to NATO's own handiwork, on constant display in the North African nation of Libya, still smoldering in the wake of NATO's "humanitarian intervention" there.
Despite NATO intervention, Libya remains a veritable firestorm of chaos - not only constituting a continued humanitarian disaster - feeding directly into Europe's mounting migrant crisis - but also has become a safe haven and base of operations for Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. In fact, in hindsight, it is clear that NATO intentionally armed and funded these very groups in their bid to overthrow the government of Muammar Qaddafi.
The US State Department would even find itself in the long-established extremists hotbed of Benghazi, helping traffic weapons and fighters onward to Syria before the US consulate was attacked and US Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens killed - the terrorists biting the hand that fed.
Syria - should NATO-member Turkey intervene - will result in a much larger conflagration than Libya, resulting in many more refugees in reality flowing into Turkey and then onward to Europe, than the numbers the West is claiming in fiction now.
Washington has called on Turkey to cease massive artillery fire on Kurdish targets near the city of Azaz in northwest Syria, including an air base recently retaken from Islamist rebels, and to “deescalate tensions on all sides.”
“We are concerned about the situation north of Aleppo and are working to deescalate tensions on all sides,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement Saturday.
“We have also seen reports of artillery fire from the Turkish side of the border and urged Turkey to cease such fire,” he said.
