Watch wearing Syrian general flees to Turkey

ANKARA: Eight Syrian army officers including a general fled to Turkey overnight to join the swelling ranks of rebels based near the border, a Turkish diplomat said Monday as tensions escalated between the two neighbours.
One general, two colonels and five other army officers including two majors, accompanied by their 24 family members, crossed into Turkey late on Sunday, a Turkish diplomat told AFP.

Turkey’s Anatolia news agency had initially put the number at 33 defectors — the general, two colonels and 30 soldiers. In addition to the defectors, 28 Syrian civilians, mostly women and children, fled to Turkey and were taken to a camp in Sanliurfa province near the border, reported Anatolia...

Another sign that US taxpayers' money work well even on patriots. Just give money to rebels and offer money for senior officers. It worked in Iraq. Maybe it will work in Syria. They probably promised US citizenship and full pension to that general's family.

Assad and the Syrian security forces were most likely going to clean house. Those traitors supporting the FSA within the Syrian armies ranks most likely fled the second they knew the gig was up.

There are hundreds of lieutenant generals who would love to get a promotion.

Syria general deserts senior command in Damascus

Syria's regime suffered its highest-ranking military defection when a general escaped into Turkey after deserting a senior command in Damascus.


..the general had travelled all the way from Damascus where he was "responsible for a large ammunitions store". Mr Sheikh added: "It remains under the control of the Syrian army but he was able to escape"...

He spoke inside Apaydin camp in Turkey's Hatay province, where the general is believed to have been taken. This base, heavily guarded by the Turkish army, was set up specifically for defecting Syrian officers and their families....
...The general was "exhausted," said Mr Sheikh, adding that "Free Syrian Army groups in Damascus helped him to escape the capital".

He travelled secretly, moving along back lanes to pass through a string of villages that are loosely under the control of the opposition. In each town, he was passed on to a new FSA unit, until he eventually reached the Turkish border...

Re: Watch wearing Syrian general flees to Turkey
ITS ALL BULLSHIT. if these rebels were in Iraq war they would be called insurgents. These generals are getting money off NATO/UN/US State department and Israel.

Weapons are being smuggled from turkey and Israel. rebels are using IEDs and are backed by al-Qaeda.

what's wrong with this picture.

Well they don't fool me and they shouldn't fool you.
