About 200 MEPs denounce Arms Smuggling and Turkey links to Terrorism in Syria

*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- An unexpectedly Important Number of MEPs Voted for "Spicy" Amendments to a Topical Resolution on recent developments in Syria, in order to Slam Arms' Smuggling towards Terrorist Groups and Turkey's "Ambiguous role" in this regard.

- Those Amendments "Condemn(ed) Arms Delivery, and any other form of Support, to ISIS, Al-Nusra and Other Jihadist Groups in Syria". They also "Note(d) that Arms and Other Equipment given to "Rebel" Groups, often ends up in the Hands of ISIS and Al-Nusra".

- In Addition, they Expressed "Concern" for "the Ambniguous Role of the Turkish Government, which seems to be More Focused on Fighting Kurdish Groups in Syria, Than fighting ISIS", while also "Not(ing) that Oil from ISIS-controlled Territories is being Exported into Turkey".

Such notoriously suspected moves could obviously "Provid(e)... extra-Funding for Terrorist Activities", not only "in Syria" alone, but also in "Europe, and elsewhere", (i.e. also in Northern America, etc., where several Cold-Blood Killings of innocent Civilian People, recently arrived even as far as inside the USA itself.

At least 131 MEPs, from a Large Spectrum of various Political Parties, pronounced themselves clearly in Favor of those Amendments, and 76 Abstained, while 141 more were Exceptionaly Absent, (i.e. a Total of potential Dissidents reaching about 325 MEPs), from a Controversial Vote where 420 Others followed Big Party Whips' push to stay Against, revealing a quite Noteworthy Division inside EU Parliament on such a Topical and Crucial Issue.


The MEPs who explicitly Supported the above-mentioned, Critical Amendments, (initialy Tabled by Italian MEP Mario Borghezio, a former Long-Time ChristianDemocrat/EPP Member in the Past), came from a WideSpread Political Spectrum, including  "Greens", "EuroLeft" and Socialists, ChristianDemocrats/EPP, Not Aligned ("Independents" from the Right and the Left), Conservatives, "European Nations and Freedom", as well as from "European Freedom and Direct Democracy" Groups.

+ Moreover, anOther Draft Resolution, (this time, Tabled by EuroLeft MEPs), which wasN't Limited only in Rebel-held Alepo,  focused on a general Cease-Fire everywhere in Syria, and into Protecting Peaceful Civilian People, while Strongly Denouncing ISIS, Al Quaida and other Armed Terrorist Groups, but was curiously Droped by those Last MEPs for undeclared motives.

A Recent Attempt to grossly Manipulate World Public Opinion, by showing an osbcure image of a slightly wounded Kid in Alepo, shot by a Controversial local Photograph whose Pals had just Atrociously ...BeHeaded anOther Child, cynicaly laughing and boasting, as a Video revealed, has provoked a Shock, and can't be so easily Forgotten.

     The High-Tech, brand new Crisis' management Center (CMC) inaugurated Wednesday by French Minister Bernard Kouchner, fits well EU's Humanitarian and Security-Defence aims, revealed a gathering of the largest Group of MEPs (EPP) organised in Paris these days, to prepare the debate on French EU Presidency's priorities (July - December 2008), that President Nicolas Sarkozy will present next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

        Due to face a large spectrum of Crises : from Humanitarian (f.ex. Natural Catastrophes, evacuation of Civilians or rapatriation of expats, populations exposed to Hunger and/or risky Sanitary conditions, etc), to various consequencies of Terrorist threats, Armed conflicts, or of Peace-keeping operations, etc, and joining Geopolitics with Diplomacy, CMC is able to deal with urgencies in real time anywhere in the world, by concentrating qualified Experts and impressive High-Tech equipment (i.e. Giant Computer Screens working in parallel, Visio-conferences, Satellite connections, etc).




        Kouchner stressed that "Humanitarian and Political considerations can co-exist in real practice, if each one respects its independence", and, speaking to EuroFora, underlined his intention to have special representatives in "Strategic" locations, creating a "Network", open particularly to European cooperation.


        - "We must fill the gap in Europe's Civilian and Military capacities", declared earlier at Matignon, French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, while EU Commissioners met with their counterparts among French Ministers.

        This point was at the focus of European People Party's "'Study Days" in Paris, from 2 to 4 July 2008, entitled  : "For a Safer Europe", with a central Debate on EU's Security and Defence policies, where EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, French Minister of Defence Herve Morin, and the Chairman of EU's Defence Committee, MEP Karl von Vogaw, spoke before meeting with Sarkozy, Wednesday afternoon.

    - "We need specifically European systems, including, f.ex. Satellite networks, etc", stressed the experienced Chairman Karl von Vogaw, speaking after the meeting with President Sarkozy to European Journalists from EuroNews, EuroPolitique and EuroFora.
    - And there where "European forces are already gathered, (f.ex. in Cyprus, Balkans, Lebanon, etc), if new operations started, I'd prefer to see them under European command in Future", he added, in reply to questions on how to overcome problems raised by a 3rd Countries as Turkey.

    Vogaw presented earlier, at EPP's plenary, a comprehensive Report on EU's Security and Defence policy, with a strong High-Tech component (including Satellites, UAV, protected Telecoms, Strategic Air and Sea Transports, Space assets, etc), sharp references to Political will and Historic necessities, while also stressing that EU must overcome the divide between Civilian and Military research and activities, making "a close cooperation between Civilian and Military means" a "specific" mark of Europe.

    The experienced Top MEP, after helping to build the "EuroZone", as a long-time Chairman of EU Parliament's Economic Committee, has recently started to chair a brand new "Security and Defence Committee", aiming to build European Defence, as the 2nd task of his life, as he told earlier to EuroFora.


     The Committee, chaired by Vogaw, will hear, next week in Strasbourg an Experts' view about on the French EU Chairmanship's priorities in ESDP on Wednesday, before President Sarkozy's plenary debate, exceptionally on Thursday.


2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
