Similar to recent assassinations in Yemen, Syria is experiencing a wave of targeted violence carried out by covert forces controlled by western-friendly groups or states. In both instances, the purpose of these executions is to soften resistance to war, create civil unrest and remove leaders that are respected by the people who could pose a threat to an organic or orchestrated coup. The US and their NATO allies are no doubt behind this in some way and this is backed by the Western media’s quick assignment of guilt to both the Syrian and Yemeni governments.
Kurdish Parties condemn Assassination of Meshaal Tammo

In a statement published late on Saturday, Kurdish Parties in Syria condemned the assassination of the nationalist opposition figure Mashaal Tammo.
Kurdish parties said that this crime aims at instigating sedition and undermining the stability of Hasakh Province.
The Kurdish parties called upon all Kurds to be aware of the purposes of this crime, calling upon the competent authorities to reveal the perpetrators of this crime as soon as possible.
For his part, Head of the National Initiative for Syrian Kurds Omar Aussi told state-run news agency SANA that the assassination of the nationalist opposition figure Mashaal Tammo is within the framework of the conspiracy against Syria.
In an interview with the Syrian TV also on Saturday, Aussi added that the assassination was executed by external sides and armed terrorist groups in the country in the context of eliminating the political, academic and religious prominent figures and instigating sedition between the Kurds and the state.
He stressed that after those external sides and the armed terrorist groups failed in fulfilling their scheme, they resorted to the acts of destruction, chaos and sabotage [a signature of CIA trained groups].
He pointed out that Kurds, as all the Syrians, will not be deceived by such acts, highlighting that the Kurds are patriots and with the reform program.
Governor of Hasakh Province Mu’za Salloum attended the ceremony and stated to SANA “This crime committed by the armed terrorist groups aims at undermining the stability of the province that has been stable and calm since the beginning of the events.”
An armed group on Friday afternoon attacked and assassinated Tammo and injured his son Marcel and Zahida Rash Kilo.
Syria opposition Meshaal Tammo had continuously stressed the importance of national unity, comprehensive political, economic and social reforms and rejection of the calls of foreign interference in the Syrian internal affairs. He left behind a wife and six sons.
Reports online added that Kurdish activists and analysts say that in the past three weeks, members of the 11 unofficial Kurdish political parties have met with Kurdish activists from the Local Coordination Committee, an alliance for young protest organizers, plan to name a special committee and hold a conference in Syria within the next few weeks.
Such a Kurdish group would be unrelated to the recently formed Syrian National Council, the country’s largest opposition umbrella. While Kurds say they share the opposition’s overall goal of a democratic Syria, many Kurds have also expressed frustration at what they see as protesters’ Arab agenda, and also say they aspire to greater autonomy within Syria
Turkey Accused of Killing Kurd Leader – Trying to Trigger Civil War in Syria
October 9, 2011

Turkey, NATO member and notorious butchers of the Kurdish people, not only within their borders but well beyond them including multiple incursions into Iraq in 2007, 2008, and 2010, with tank battalions as well as air strikes on “suspected” militant targets on both sides of the border, has played a role in the assassination of Syrian-Kurdish leader Mashaal Tammo according to Kurdish activists.
Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that Kurdish Party leaders accused Turkish intelligence of assassinating Tammo, aiming to ignite sedition throughout the northern province of Hasaka. Hasaka Province conveniently shares a borders with Turkey – a border Turkey has systematically militarized in its decades long war against the Kurdish people. It is also a border Turkey is now conducting “military exercises” along in an overt threat to Syria, Voice of America reports. Turkey and its Western sponsors are now hoping the resulting chaos will trigger an armed Kurdish uprising in Syria against the Assad government and be the “tipping point” in an otherwise stalled 7 month-long destabilization attempt.
The assassination was also complemented by mystery gunmen who opportunistically attacked Tammo’s funeral procession, killing several attendees and further provoking Syria’s Kurd minority to rise up in violence. Details of the shootings were filtered through the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a notorious propaganda front whose second-hand reports are faithfully repeated by Western media outlets as “fact.” The expediency with which propagandists at BBC and the US State Department concluded the shootings were the work of the Syrian government further lends suspicion over who indeed carried out the assassination and the subsequent shootings at Tammo’s funeral – a dream scenario for Western nations bent on ousting Assad by collapsing Syrian society into a Libyan-style civil war.
It should be noted, that out of Syria’s opposition movement, Mashaal Tammo was one of the few leaders opposing foreign meddling in Syria’s affairs, going as far as not attending an opposition confab held in Turkey on this basis. It should be further noted that of all of Syria’s minorities, the Kurds have so far not joined in large scale protests. Western corporate-funded think tanks and media outlets have been fantasizing over the prospect of Kurdish militants joining the US-funded uprising, despite what, up until now, appeared to be their neutral stance. The Wall Street Journal’s “Kurds Look Beyond Assad, With Dreams of Autonomy” acknowledged the muted role the Kurds were playing in the uprising and their hesitation to make wider commitments. Tammo’s assassination may just have been the geopolitical ploy necessary to spur the Kurds past this point of hesitation.
After months of stalled, now failing armed opposition against the Syrian government through the Muslim Brotherhood and an assortment of Al-Qaeda linked militant groups, the West is exhibiting an almost palpable madness in pursuit of war with Syria. Western propaganda networks, including BBC, CNN, and Al Jazeera and contrived “human rights advocacy” fronts fully funded by corporate-financier special interests have been caught fabricating in whole, stories of atrocities being perpetrated by the Assad government. One activist reported by Soros-funded Amnesty International (page 10) to have been “brutally murdered in custody” turned up alive and well. Amnesty International would later reveal just how tenuous the information was behind what was essentially baseless, sensationalized propaganda aimed at the Syrian government. After a failed UN resolution, vetoed outright by Russia and China, and receiving no votes from other BRIC nations, more desperate measures are sure to follow, including the increasing prospect of unilateral military action taken by Turkey, on behalf of NATO and its corporate sponsors
