NATO Shocked: “Russia Has Sent All the Northern Fleet to Syria”

(Translated from Вести) — NATO claimed that to strengthen the campaign in Syria, Russia has sent all the ships in the Mediterranean and the Northern Fleet of the Baltic Sea. This was reported by Reuters, citing an unnamed diplomat in the Alliance. At the same time representatives of the press service of the Northern Fleet has reported that a group of ships has been sent into the Mediterranean Sea.

According to an unnamed diplomat, is the most large-scale operation to deploy since the end of the Cold War. But he has not provided any concrete evidence of his words. At the same official reports from NATO on this issue have been reported, according to RIA Novosti.

It clarifies that thus the Russian Federation intends to increase the number of aircraft in Syria, and then in two weeks to start the final air operation in Aleppo.

Earlier, representatives of the Northern Fleet’s press service reported that on 15 October began a campaign of naval aircraft carrier group of the Northern Fleet in the Mediterranean and the North-East Atlantic. This was done in accordance with the plan of combat training of the Navy.

“Though unlike most Germans I had daily access to foreign newspapers, especially those of London, Paris and Zurich, which arrived the day after publication, and though I listened regularly to the BBC and other foreign broadcasts, my job necessitated the spending of many hours a day in combing the German press, checking the German radio, conferring with Nazi officials and going to party meetings. It was surprising and sometimes consternating to find that notwithstanding the opportunities I had to learn the facts and despite one’s inherent distrust of what one learned from Nazi sources, a steady diet over the years of falsifications and distortions made a certain impression on one’s mind and often misled it. No one who has not lived for years in a totalitarian land can possibly conceive how difficult it is to escape the dread consequences of a regime’s calculated and incessant propaganda. Often in a German home or office or sometimes in a casual conversation with a stranger in a restaurant, a beer hall, a cafe, I would meet with the most outlandish assertions from seemingly educated and intelligent persons. It was obvious that they were parroting some piece of nonsense they had heard on the radio or read in the newspapers. Sometimes one was tempted to say as much, but on such occasions one was met with such a stare of incredulity, such a shock of silence, as if one had blasphemed the Almighty, that one realized how useless it was even to try to make contact with a mind which had become warped and for whom the facts of life had become what Hitler and Goebbels, with their cynical disregard for truth, said they were.”

Turkey is a Stupid Place for US to Store Nuclear Weapons

By Dawn’s Early Light was based on William Prochnau’s novel, Trinity’s Child.

An aside note:  It’s the things we don’t know that frighten me the most.  I discovered some relatively unknown history about Turkish involvement with U.S. nuclear weapons while reading former Secret Service officer, Gary Byrne’s, Clinton tell-all.  Talking about his Air Force days as he establishes his his own credibility and character early in the book, Byrne writes:

“Arriving at Murtad, I learned that AFSP there had caught rogue Turkish officers trying to push an American F-104 Starfighter with a loaded nuke onto the flight line so they could steal a nuke and bomb Greece. Many Turks bitter about the Greco-Turkish War of 1919– 22 wanted a flash point to ignite a new war. I believe this was secretly why JFK took the nukes out of Turkey in 1962. Turks simply hate Greeks. We joked to each other, “Hey, if you’re not careful, I’ll tell the Turks you’re Greek!””
