Hmmmm....I guess we'll be seeing some Turkish or Israeli aircraft getting shot down.

Russian Military Forces Arrive In Syria, Set Forward Operating Base Near Damascus

Quote:
According to Western diplomats, a Russian expeditionary force has already arrived in Syria and set up camp in an Assad-controlled airbase. The base is said to be in area surrounding Damascus, and will serve, for all intents and purposes, as a Russian forward operating base. In the coming weeks thousands of Russian military personnel are set to touch down in Syria, including advisors, instructors, logistics personnel, technical personnel, members of the aerial protection division, and the pilots who will operate the aircraft....

Flashpoint: White House Confirms Russian Presence In Syria, Warns It Is "Destabilizing"

Quote:
Two days ago we reported something which we had anticipated for a long time but nonetheless did not expect to take shape so swiftly: namely, that with Assad's regime close to collapse and fighting a war on three different fronts (one of which is directly supported by US air and "advisor" forces), Putin would have no choice but to finally intervene in the most anticipated showdown in recent history as "Russian fighter pilots are expected to begin arriving in Syria in the coming days, and will fly their Russian air force fighter jets and attack helicopters against ISIS and rebel-aligned targets within the failing state."

This was indirectly confirmed the very next day when an al-Nusra linked Twitter account posted pictures of a Russian drone and a Su-34 fighter jet - the kind which is not flown by the Syrian air force - flying over the Nusra-controlled western idlib province...

Re: Syria

I'm sure we'll be there soon in order to keep us "free" from ISIS.

Putin Confirms Scope Of Russian Military Role In Syria

Quote:

Over the past 48 hours or so, we’ve seen what certainly appears to be visual confirmation of a non-negligible Russian military presence in Syria. For anyone coming to the story late, overt Russian involvement would seem to suggest that the geopolitical “main event” (so to speak), may be closer than anyone imagined...

...That is, everyone’s just biding time to see how far the other side is willing to go in support of their vision for Syria's political future - a political future which, as we noted yesterday, almost certainly will not be decided at the ballot box, that is unless it's after US Marines have stormed Damascus at which point the US will benevolently allow whatever civilians are still alive in Syria to choose between two puppet leaders vetted and supported by Washington.

And lest anyone should forget what this is all about...

Re: Syria

Read This Before The Mainstream Media Uses A Drowned Refugee Boy To Start Another War

Quote:
A baby boy turned to flotsam. Washed up on the shore, face down in the mud. Warmongers in government and the media are perversely but predictably trying to conscript Aylan’s corpse into their march to escalation. They are contending that Aylan died because the West has not intervened against Syria’s dictator Bashar al-Assad, and that it must do so now to spare other children the same fate. Um, no, Aylan’s family were Kurdish refugees from Kobani who had to flee that city when it was besieged, not by Assad, but by Assad’s enemy: ISIS (created by the CIA).

DoD Admits US SpecOps "Boots On The Ground" In Syria

Quote:
With the Russians on the ground at Latakia shoring up the Assad regime and with tensions between Washington and Moscow at a fever pitch over the Kremlin’s involvement, the Pentagon now says US boots are officially on the ground in Syria - you know, to help fight ISIS...


U.S. Rejected Offers by Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria to Surrender … and Proceeded to Wage War

Quote:
....And the Guardian reports today:

Russia proposed more than three years ago that Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, could step down as part of a peace deal, according to a senior negotiator involved in back-channel discussions at the time.

Former Finnish president and Nobel peace prize laureate Martti Ahtisaari said western powers failed to seize on the proposal. Since it was made, in 2012, tens of thousands of people have been killed and millions uprooted, causing the world’s gravest refugee crisis since the second world war.

Ahtisaari held talks with envoys from the five permanent members of the UN security council in February 2012. He said that during those discussions, the Russian ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, laid out a three-point plan, which included a proposal for Assad to cede power at some point after peace talks had started between the regime and the opposition.

But he said that the US, Britain and France were so convinced that the Syrian dictator was about to fall, they ignored the proposal.

***

“There was no question because I went back and asked him a second time,” he said, noting that Churkin had just returned from a trip to Moscow and there seemed little doubt he was raising the proposal on behalf of the Kremlin.

Ahtisaari said he passed on the message to the American, British and French missions at the UN, but he said: “Nothing happened because I think all these, and many others, were convinced that Assad would be thrown out of office in a few weeks so there was no need to do anything.”
Similarly, Bloomberg reported in 2012:

As Syria slides toward civil war, Russia is signaling that it no longer views President Bashar al-Assad’s position as tenable and is working with the U.S. to seek an orderly transition.

***

After meeting with French President Francois Hollande, among the most adamant of Western leaders demanding Assad’s departure, Putin said Russia was not invested in Assad staying.

***

“We aren’t for Assad or for his opponents,” Putin told reporters in Paris on June 1. “We want to achieve a situation in which violence ends and a full-scale civil war is avoided.”
And yet, as with Gaddaffi, Saddam Hussein and Bin Laden, the U.S. turned down the offer and has instead prosecuted war.

Re: Syria

Yep, they hate us because of our freedoms. Our fed gov't is the most dangerous terrorist in the world. I'm sure the misery our gov't has put those Syrian refugees in will definitely create many people that will want to get revenge.

Poll: Over 80 Percent of Syrians Believe US Created ISIS: “A Foreign/ American Made Group”

Quote:
Just last June, a Wall Street Journal reporter speaking with Iraqi refugees in Baghdad found a growing number of residents believed the United States was directly supporting ISIS terrorists after multiple US weapons airdrops reportedly fell into the hands of jihadists in 2014.

“We don’t have any trust in Americans anymore,” said prominent lawmaker Alia Nusseif. “We now think ISIS is being used as a tool by America to divide and weaken Iraq.”

Regardless of whether Western powers created ISIS as some claim, Pentagon documents recently uncovered by political watchdog Judicial Watch revealed that the US deliberately used al-Qaeda and other radical groups to destabilize Syria – leading to the rise of the Islamic State...

Clock Ticks On US Syria Strategy As Assad Pounds ISIS Targets, Russia Sends Fighter Jets

Quote:
For the second consecutive day, Bashar al-Assad pounded ISIS targets across Syria on Friday, serving notice that Russia's stepped up "technical" and "logistical" support may have turned the tide in the country's four-year civil war. With Moscow having called Washington's bluff, Obama instructs Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to liaise with the Russian military while in Tehran, Major General Qassem Soleimani lays bare America's ISIS strategy
That's awesome that the US and Russia has teamed up together to kick some ISIS ass!! I'm pumped!

Re: Syria

Well now...isn't this the perfect plan. We destroy another country in the pursuit to satisfy the globalists that want to control the gas pipeline running thru Syria by arming ISIS. War weary people who's relatives have been killed and are uprooted have been allowed to come to the country that did this to them.
The US tired of faking terrorists attacks now have some genuine terrorists to work with. The FBI will probably help them get everything set up for their revenge. The MSM via the CIA will then cry for gun control. The justification for more security/police state will ensure more of the same. Brilliant!


Obama Will "Accept" 100,000 Refugees In The US Starting 2017

Re: Syria

http://fr.sputniknews.com/internatio...#ixzz3mLnELV3G

Quote:
Le principal objectif de l'Occident en Syrie n'est pas de combattre le groupe terroriste Etat islamique, mais de renverser le président Bachar el-Assad.

Seule la Russie propose un plan concret de règlement pacifique du conflit en Syrie, affirme Pepe Escobar, correspondant du magazine Asia Times.

La Russie doit avoir la possibilité d'effectuer des frappes aériennes sur les positions du groupe terroriste Etat islamique en Syrie, estime l'ambassadeur syrien à l'ONU

La Russie a-t-elle le droit d'effectuer des frappes aériennes en Syrie?
On a l'impression que l'administration de Barack Obama ne sait toujours pas si elle doit continuer d'ignorer le président russe Vladimir Poutine ou si elle doit engager un dialogue avec ce dernier pour tenter de régler conjointement la crise syrienne. Or, au lieu d'opter pour la coopération, Washington accuse la Russie de s'ingérer non seulement en Ukraine, mais aussi en Syrie.
L'expert rappelle à cette occasion qu'en 2014, l'ancien ministre algérien des Affaires étrangères et envoyé spécial de l'Onu et de la Ligue arabe pour la Syrie, Lakhdar Brahimi, a déclaré que l'analyse russe du conflit syrien était juste dès le début.

Assad: l'Occident réalise des scénarios similaires en Syrie et en Ukraine

Assad: l'Occident réalise des scénarios similaires en Syrie et en Ukraine
Selon Pepe Escobar, Moscou a intensifié son jeu diplomatique afin de réduire les divergences entre Damas et l'opposition et de former une coalition réelle dans la lutte contre les terroristes du groupe Etat islamique.
"Moscou est le seul à mener le jeu diplomatique, car le plan A de Washington consiste toujours à renverser le régime de Damas. En outre, l'Occident n'a aucun plan d'action cohérent susceptible à la fois de garantir la défaite de l'EI (Daech) et de prévenir un démembrement catastrophique de l'Etat syrien", constate l'analyste.

D'après Pepe Escobar, si le Pentagone ressent de l'inquiétude au sujet de la présence russe en Syrie, ce n'est pas parce qu'il craint que cela puisse entraver les opérations de la coalition internationale, mais parce qu'il sait que cette dernière ne pourra pas bombarder impunément les forces de Bachar el-Assad au vu et au su de Moscou.

L'Union européenne est, quant à elle, en proie à une crise migratoire due à son obsession pour le changement de régimes en Afrique et au Proche-Orient. Or, alors que l'UE tente de trouver une issue à la tragédie syrienne, le premier ministre britannique David Cameron et le président Français François Hollande s'apprêtent à effectuer des frappes aériennes réduites, frappes qui auront du mal à faire trembler de peur les bandits de l'Etat islamique.


Syrie : il est grand temps que l’Occident reconnaisse ses torts
Les Etats-Unis cherchent à renverser Assad et s'opposent pour cette raison à l'octroi de toute aide au dirigeant syrien. La Russie appelle pour sa part la "coalition internationale" à coopérer avec les autorités syriennes sous l'égide du Conseil de sécurité de l'Onu dans la lutte contre l'EI. Le chef de la diplomatie russe Sergueï Lavrov a à plusieurs reprises déclaré que Moscou n'avait jamais caché qu'il apportait aux dirigeants syriens le soutien militaire et technique nécessaire pour combattre le terrorisme.

Today several steep army Syrian Air have been conducted on Raqqa and its region.
The Islamic court Daech destroyed.

An educational camp on preparing traps vehicles destroyed.
A hospital destroyed only for terrorists.
A tanker truck convoy destroyed.
Many terrorists have been eliminated, the exact number is not yet known.
With satellite images and Russian intelligence services, things are accelerating and keystrokes are more accurate.
