Turkey Is Lying
Paul Craig Roberts
November 25, 2015 "Information
Clearing House" - Tyler Durden at
has posted the flight paths
of the Russian aircraft according to
Turkey and to Russia.
We know that Turkey is lying for three reasons.
One reason is that NATO governments lie every time
that they open their mouths.
A second reason is that Turkey’s claim that the
SU-24 was in Turkey’s airspace for 17 seconds but only traveled 1.15
miles means that the SU-24 was flying at stall speed! The entire
Western media was too incompetent to do the basic math!
A third reason is that, assuming Turkey’s claim of
a 17 second airspace violation is true, 17 seconds is not long
enough for a Turkish pilot to get clearance for such a serious and
reckless act as shooting down a Russian military aircraft. If the
SU-24 was flying at a normal speed rather than one that would be
unable to keep the aircraft aloft, the alleged airspace vioation
would not have been long enough to be noticed. A shootdown had to
have been pre-arranged. The Turks, knowing that the Russians were
foolishly trusting to the agreement that there be no air to air
encounters, told pilots to look for an opportunity.
In my recent article,
I gave a reason for this reckless act:
Turkey’s explanation to the UN Security Council
gives itself away as a lie. The letter states: “This morning (24
November) 2 SU-24 planes, the nationality of which are unknown have
approached Turkish national airspace. The Planes in quesion have
been warned 10 times during a period of 5 minutes via ‘Emergency’
channel and asked to change their headings south immediately.”
As SU-24 are Russian aircraft, as Turkey is able
to identify that the aircraft are SU-24s, how then can the
nationality of the aircraft be unknown? Would Turkey risk shooting
down a US or Israeli aircraft by firing at an unknown aircraft? If
the SU-24 takes 17 seconds to fly 1.15 miles, the SU-24s would have
only traveled 20.29 miles in five minutes. Does anyone believe that
a supersonic aircraft can fly at stall speed for 17 seconds, much
less for five minutes?
Do not expect any truth from any Western
government or from any Western media. Governments and media know
that the Western populations are uneducated, unaware, and can be
relied upon to accept any preposterous story. In the West the Matrix
has a firm grip. The Russians need to wake up to this fact.
NPR this morning confirmed that the media is a
government propaganda organ. The Diane Rehm show on NPR presented us
with a group of talking heads. Only one was informed, a professor at
the Middle East Institute of the London School of Economics. The
rest of the “experts” were the typical dumbshit Americans. They
repeated all of the lies. “Russia is attacking everyone except
ISIS.” How can there be anyone but ISIS to attack when the US
general overseeing the area recently told Congress that “only 5” of
our trained “rebels” remained? Yet the myth of “moderate rebels” is
kept alive by these liars.
“The refugees are fleeing the brutal Assad.”
Notice that it is always Assad who is brutal, not ISIS which has cut
out opponents hearts and eaten them and routinely cuts off peoples
heads and commits the most atrocious atrocities. Here we have
“experts” blaming Assad. The “experts” said that the refugees are
fleeing from Assad not from ISIS. The refugee problem is Assad’s
fault, not the faut of ISIS. It is all Assad’s fault because he
doesn’t give up and turn Syria over to Washington’s ISIS henchmen.
There was no acknowledgement from the “experts”
that ISIS is a Washington creation or that until the Paris attack
Washington was strongly backing ISIS with both words and weapons
against the Russian air attacks that caught both Washington and ISIS
off guard. This is extraordinary considering the fact that US
responsibility for ISIS was
acknowledged on TV
by the former head of the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency.
Gullible Americans who give money to NPR are
supporting lies and propaganda that have resulted in the deaths and
dislocation of millions of peoples and that are leading to WWIII.
The Western media whores are complicit in the crimes, because they
fail their responsibility to hold government accountable and make it
impossible for valid information to reach people. The Western media
serves as cheerleaders for death and destruction.
