Mossad false flag attempting to indict Syria. The real criminals wear Aviators & are from Tel Aviv.

What defies logic is using the "defies logic" argument for a nutcase like Assad.

I don't believe that Damascus or Assad did it. They were set-up.

Reyhanli is predominantly Alawite, supporters of Assad. Makes no sense if it was Damascus.

Damascus is not suicidal... but it is increasingly desperate.

Don't take your eye off the ball here people-Turkey is very deeply involved in Syrian affairs-ask O!

@Javaid : good call. I'd put my money on Mossad as well... they've always enjoyed a good blast.

This attack on Turkish city was a hundred percent Israeli Mossad's false flag attack. They are trying to get NATO to intervene in Syria.

Syria is defeating FSA terrorists so they have no need to bomb Turks and invite NATO intervention.

The title has got it right 100%, it would be suicide, and teh SAA is winning big time, hence this BS

Russia please help Syria with weapons. The Syrian people are attacked by the same Na zi s who once attacked Russia.
