Posted on 10/10/2012 4:55:21 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Turkey seized "objectionable cargo" aboard the Syrian passenger plane which it intercepted en route from Moscow to Damascus on Wednesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said, according to an AFP report.
"There is illegal cargo on the plane that should have been reported" in line with civil aviation regulations, Davutoglu was quoted as saying by the Anatolia news agency.
"There are elements on board that can be considered objectionable," he added, without elaborating.
The confiscated cargo might be missile parts, NTV news channel reported.
The plane, carrying 35 passengers on board, would be allowed to leave soon, Davutoglu said.
Meanwhile, Al Arabiya reported, Turkish authorities declared the Syrian airspace to be unsafe and were stopping Turkish aircraft from flying over the civil-war torn country.
TRT television said that a Turkish plane that had already taken off for Saudi Arabia made a detour and landed at a Turkish airport.
The incident occurred in the wake of a week of tension between Turkey and Syria, which began last Wednesday when a Syrian mortar landed in Turkish territory, killing five civilians in Akcakale.
The Turkish army responded by attacking several targets in Syria. Turkey's parliament on Thursday gave the government the green light to use military force against Syria if necessary.

We sure are, because they haven't the stones to throw us out on our ear.
So if we go to war against Syria, won't NATO have to help us?
Yes, and America is part of NATO, too.
So, you mean, we can force America to go to war with Syria?
Force is such an indelicate word. They'll do it, though, because our man will get reelected. It's October. Time for the surprise.
But what if he doesn't win reelection?
Then his opponent will be stuck with a war he doesn't want, and lots of OWS and Ladies in Pink, protesting him. It'll be one short honeymoon.
Sounds good. OK. Let's send America to war.
How do you spell “false flag?” Oh wait...I just did. I love the US and love our armed Forces. But I would hardly blame them if they just said, “No more.”
Today we have US troops a mortar round away from Syria in Jordan.
What to do!!
SAN JOSÉ DEL CABO, Mexico President Obama and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir V. Putin, finally had their face-to-face meeting on Monday, as Mr. Obama pressed Mr. Putin to work with him to ease President Bashar al-Assad of Syria out of power, a move increasingly viewed by the West as the only way to end the bloodshed that has been under way there for more than a year.
But after two full hours together, Mr. Putin was still balking, appearing afterward with Mr. Obama before reporters in a grim tableau that seemed to bespeak the frustration on both sides. During the few minutes that it took their handlers to usher reporters out of the room after their prepared remarks, the two leaders remained seated, side by side, staring straight ahead, with none of the interaction or small talk that leaders usually engage in before the cameras. We agreed that we need to see a cessation of the violence, that a political process has to be created to prevent civil war, Mr. Obama said.
Under the terms of the NATO treaty, an attack on one is an attack on all, which is why NATO is in Afghanistan. Under the terms of the treaty if Syria attacks Turkey, they have also attacked, the U.S., Britain, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Norway, Denmark and Portugal.
Ambassador Stevens’ real job was to funnel Khaddaffi arms to our Syrian “friends” who are proto Al Qaeda. The Obama Admin could never do that via legit channels, so they’re doing it the new Iran/Contra way —it’s OK cuz Barry is black, see? That makes it OK.
So with Syria a Russian client state, this will get us sucked into a war big enough for people to think the USA can’t affort to “switch horses in mid-stream”
Remember WHAT MOVIE that li’l buzz phrase came from..?
Basically Barry and Hillary are trying to start World War III, with the buddies of Hillary’s BED MATE as our friends, along with Al Qaeda.
Phase 1: Turkey/Syria
Phase 2: Turkey + USA vs. Russia + Syria
We will soon have MUUUUCH bigger things to worry about than Barry and his 2 dismal debate performances.
Maybe Phase 3 is Hussein as President for Life? Say, what are those 1.5 billion new DHS rounds for, since they can’t be used abroad legally?
EVERYONE in Caracas would guess that question correctly today.
They had movies in 1864?
“We agreed that we need to see a cessation of the violence, that a political process has to be created to prevent civil war, Mr. Obama said.”
Good thing I wasn’t drinking anything when I read that. Only about six months too late to prevent civil war. They have that, now leave them to it.
I WONDER why the FBI team was kept away from Bengazi for 3 weeks, right?
And FINALLY they get there and leave after investigating an AL QAEDA ATTACK for TWELVE HOURS...?
What forensic stuff at the attack scene was soooo important to clean-up, I WONDER....?
Was someone pretty big and important trying to tell us in that attack that realllly big stakes could play out from some secret Middle-East stuff the American public doesn’t know about..???
You know what? I thought about it:
Now...it is true it’s famous that the Khadaffi’s fall resulted in a whole bunch of really scary weapons to be running around Libya, yup. Maybe even CHEM weapons.
And it IS true that US officials have told Syria that any baaaaad random “super pro Assad” guy there using chem weapons in their civil war is a red-line that would require the USA getting involved in a direct military way there, yup...
And then I thought about Fast & Furious, and how Barry was OK with two US cops dying in a large and amazingly ambitious effort using DEATH ON A LARGE SCALE to bring about the appearance of an EMERGENCY that required some pretty massive US soul-searching and change. Change, like legal changes, see? And extra policing and stuff, uh-huh...
And then I thought about how Barry was OK with HUNDREDS (so far) of poor brown Mexican people dying in his Fast & Furious scheme....
And then looking upon the Middle East I wondered if, as Barry faced the prospect of no-teleprompter debates with a long-time biz whiz, if Barry juuuuust miiiight:
Fill in the blank, freeper...
Yes, it is. I would prefer "facilitate". Also trading illegal weapons is now known as "gunwalking" - I thought you should know.
