(US is still pushing its luck in Syria): Russia warns US it will strike back if militia attacks in Syria don’t end
Russia warns US it will strike back if militia attacks in Syria don’t end
Moscow has warned the US that if militias it supports in northeast Syria again attack positions of pro-government forces backed by Russia, the Russian military will use all its force to retaliate.
The troops of the Syrian Democratic Force (SDF), a predominantly Kurdish militia that receives support from the US military, have twice attacked positions of the Syrian Arab Army in the Deir ez-Zor governorate with mortar and rocket fire, according to the Russian Defense Ministry's spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov.
“SDF militants work to the same objectives as IS terrorists. Russian drones and intelligence have not recorded any confrontations between IS and the ‘third force,’ the SDF,” the Russian general said.
The escalation of tension in eastern Syria is mirrored in the western Idlib governorate, where militant forces this week attacked Syrian positions in a designated de-escalation zone. The offensive threatened a unit of Russian military police, who were stationed in the area to monitor the ceasefire. Russia mounted an emergency rescue operation on Wednesday, in which three Russian special operations troops were injured. The Russian Defense Ministry claimed that the militants’ offensive had been instigated by US special services,

The Russian Defense Ministry says that, according to their data, an offensive launched by Al Nusra terrorists and their allies in Syria was orchestrated by the US security services, aiming at derailing the Syrian Army operation near Deir ez-Zor:
“According to our intelligence data, the offensive was instigated by the US security services to stop the successful advance of the government forces to the east of the [city of] Deir ez-Zor,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement, commenting on the incident.
One of the major goals of the terrorists consisted in capturing a unit of the Russian military police monitoring the situation in the de-escalation zone, the ministry said.
The terrorists, however, failed to achieve their goals and their offensive was eventually repelled by government forces supported by Russian military aircraft.
Earlier, Russian officials already suspected the US of having links to some radical groups in Syria and even of attempts to let Al Nusra terrorists off the hook. On September 11, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the situation around the Al Nusra Front terrorist group remains “highly ambiguous” as it was repeatedly spared in the operations conducted by the US-led coalition and its allies.
The US military is going to push the world into a really bad situation in their eternal quest to find a war that they can win. The neos, both -con and -liberal, are willing to go to any lengths to stop Russia from making any progress towards a 'peace' in Syria. They would rather see every man, woman, and child in Syria dead rather than to allow Russia to broker a peace or to conquer ISIS. The neos know their days are numbered world-wide and and America will no longer be the world's policeman.
THIS is what the neos are so desperately trying to prevent:
What is 'Brazil, Russia, India, China And South Africa - BRICS
Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa BRICS s an acronym for the combined economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. BRIC, without South Africa, was originally coined in 2003 by Goldman Sachs, which speculates that by 2050 these four economies will be the most dominant. . South Africa was added to the list on April 13, 2011 creating "BRICS".
TPTB think their bunkers will save them from the destruction they have wrought. I wonder, do they think their precious little snowflakes will like spending their lifetimes underground? Because at the rate the neos are starting wars and making enemies, their spawn will never see daylight once the real fighting begins. The Have-Nots of the world are fucking tired of greedy elitist Western bastids and bitches.
P.S. Is it my imagination or has Britain become a lot less bellicose and threatening since Cameron got the boot? Wonder why?
