FOURTH POST – OCTOBER 11, 2012 – HILARIOUS TURKISH ANNOUNCEMENT: SYRIAN PLANE WAS CARRYING AMMO!!!
If you read SyrPer’s post today about the fiasco the Turks brought upon themselves by forcing a Syrian commercial airliner down as it ferried about 25 passengers across its skies, you will realize the Ankara government had bitten into some really gamy crow meat. It is impossible for Ankara to display what we reported was old electronic equipment which had fallen into desuetude and which the Turks were snookered into discovering as part of a brilliant Russian ploy to set the stage for more aggressive involvement by Moscow without exposing themselves to universal ridicule and raspberries in Surroundsound. Now, Doofus of the Year Nominee, Recep Tayyip Erdoghan, has had to announce himself that the plane contained “ammunition” for the Syrian Defense Ministry. It appears no one in his government was willing to stand in front of the cameras for that career-destroying moment known all too well by Colin Powell.
I called Monzer in Damascus, using a friend’s land line, and learned that Monzer was sharing the mirth and sense of Schadefreude we hope our readers are feeling. As Monzer said so perspicaciously to me just a few moments ago: “Ziad, do you think we get our ammunition on commercial aircraft? On Airbus 320’s? When our army needs ammunition, it takes ships or trains or giant planes to bring it in.” We left the subject there.
“يا زياد هل تفكر لما نحن نحتاج للذخيرة نطلبها بطائرة تجارية عادية؟ نطلبها على طائرة أيرباص 320؟ لما جيشنا يحتاج إلى ذخيرة هذا يستلزم بارجات او قطارات او طائرات عملاقة لتوصلها.”
Enough said about Erdoghan and his single-minded quest to bring defeat and disaster to his own people.
And remember when we told you Erdoghan hasn’t long for this world? His cancer is spreading. It’s like he’s trying to get Dr. Assad’s goat before he kicks the bucket to spare us any more of his shenanigans.
What an idiot! SyrPer supports Erdoghan’s cancer and wishes it a happy and efficacious run through his slime-infested body.
