At UN, Talk of Turkish Jet as NATO Pretext, "End It In July"

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive

UNITED NATIONS, June 23 -- "This Turkish jet is the beginning of the end," a power in the UN told Inner City Press on June 22, with a view of the East River and a staffers outside conducting opposition research on Syria's Assad.

  "It'll let the Turks invoke Article 5 of the NATO agreement," he continued, smiling. "This whole thing should be over in July."

  Another of the three branches of the UN's world government, if you can call it that, had Secretary General Ban Ki-moon claiming through his spokesman Saturday morning of the "Turkish aircraft incident" to be "following the situation closely. He hopes this serious incident can be handled with restraint by both sides through diplomatic channels."

  This is for public consumption; the other power, openly gleeful about the Turkish jet as pretext to use force through NATO, not the Security Council.

  If the Council's Chapter 7 is not needed, through the NATO loophole, then another Friday prediction to Inner City Press takes on a bit more meaning. "Look for something in the General Assembly soon," Inner City Press was told.

  Those in charge of the plumbing claimed they didn't know. But this is not about the plumbing, but the architects. Watch this site.
