On February 7, the US Central Command (CENTCOM) announced in an official statement that the US-led coalition conducted several strikes against units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Deir Ezzor governorate. CENTCOM claimed that the SAA was conducting “an unprovoked attack against well-established Syrian Democratic Forces [SDF] headquarters.”
“The Coalition remains committed to focusing on the defeat-Daesh [ISIS] mission in the Middle Euphrates River Valley and asserts its non-negotiable right to act in self-defense.” CENTCOM said in its official statement.
Local sources reported that the US-led coalition strikes targeted several positions of the SAA around the town of Khasham on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside. Clashes between the SAA and the US-backed SDF are still ongoing around the town, according to the sources.
Earlier, Syrian opposition activists reported that the SAA is massing its forces in Khasham and preparing to launch an attack against the SDF positions in the CONICO gas facility and the Jafar oil field. However, Syrian pro-government sources doubted that the SAA could launch such an attack against the US-backed force while it is fighting on many other fronts in the governorates of Hama, Aleppo, Idlib and Damascus.
The US-led coalition strike on the SAA will likely reignite the tension between the Damascus government and the Kurdish-dominated SDF after it had faded away for a while due to the Turkish Army attack on the Afrin area.
So far, the SDF and the Damascus government have not commented on the incident.
Pathetic attempt to derail saa sdf cooperation in afrin. The saa should dig in and take pot shots at all unauthorized aircraft. If they miss try again if they hit just shrug and say theyre there illegally anyways chances you take setting up colonies in other people countries.(cuts all sorts of ways illegal aliens)
Not sure about that, it would give them the excuse they need for a full invasion.
Wouldn’t likely happen as they have been caught out on lie after lie , recently they attacked villages who wanted to take murderers within the SDF/ISIS to face punishment. Civilians were killed in both incidents as there are no real ISIS just civilians fighting criminal ISIS members huge insult to the world at large.
Lmao. SAA are simply put the most stupidist army ever in human history because they can’t understand simple things.
Why do you think there is de-confliction line between RUSSIA AND USA to begin with. All of Russian ownned puppets like SAA and co can’t cross that area because the Americans are there because they wan to drill it and Russia is on the otherside to drill it the red zone. Forget about this ISIS facade. they are there to drill Omar field and other gas fields on that lucrative area.
Do they really think that they just could cross that line that have already been agreed upon between these 2 entities. This is really childish attempt in my opinion and beyond stupid
But if Russia & Iran did not step in to support Assad, Syria’s future would have looked much worse…. a ZioCaliphate could have been……
I smell Hasbara/JIDF here… Nobody can be this stupid as to make this false claim against the SAA…
this person is mentally deficient, really he should be ignored as he probably is a 14 year old Israeli
I know the truth hurts. But facts will stay facts little friend
Seems like you are always out of touch Molehill and create your own Fantasy Island.
Banning abortion was stupider still, and caused the whole war same as it causes all territorial war.
So the US is defending “Their” CONICO gas field & “Their” Jafar Oil Field……with the help of their Kurdish Friends (you are really a bunch of Traitors and too stupid to realise you’ll lose it all) & Headchopper Allies…… that makes sense…….yeah go morons go……. show the world what a retards you really are……..
Again, the US is ILLEGALLY operating in Syria and are therefore invaders of the sovereign nation of Syria… The SAA has every right to make for THEIR oil fields…
BUT again, the SAA has not been conducting this operation at all for the bulk of their forces are tied up in Idlib province… Therefore I do smell a rat and a ‘false flag’ by the criminals in the US itself..
Well and good knowing that the US is there illegally, but the question is what is to be done about it. So far that hasn’t been asked or acted upon by Russia and allies.
This is the new problem ISIS/SDF members are going to regions where they committed murders then and repeat the same atrocities again as these are US new Storm troopers. Now explain to me how lynch mobs get started in the US because no one wants to take action who pretend to be the law.
Never had lynch mobs here in Australia, we simply used to shoot them or find a way to have them disappear. Unfortunately now our Government is similar to the US.
Had checked this story earlier and found out what truly happened and locals threw out the SDF collaborators, because they refused to turn over the culprit to the local council for murder trial.
Did locate information regarding the ISIS/SDF murder of civilian. http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13961118001085
Something should be done about the U$ aggression against the Syrian state. Enough is enough!
But what and how should it be done? UN is hopeless and the EU is a vassal to the US.
Open different, asymmetrical fronts against the U$ imperialistic, pro-ISIS forces in the region if they continue attacking the Syrian army and allied militias. Embed Russian units within SAA and allied militia. Make constant noises at the UN by exposing the U$ illegal occupation in Syrian territory and demand that they leave Syria immediately.
That’s not gonna happen since Kremlin Siloviki cannot operate outside of Int Banking Sys which is under full control of Vatican US.
Really? Is that why China and Russia are trading in their own currencies? Is that why Russia has sold a lot of US debt? Is that why Russia is hoovering up the gold, because that is what a Rothschild Central Bank has told them to do?
I thought President Putin had paid off all Russian and Soviet Debt, kicking the Rothschilds out of Russia and taking back control of the Central Bank?
More important is if you need to attack , use Houthis technique. No heavy vehicles but lots of ATGM like the Lebanon war 2006. Then US air is of no use.
This if the Russians chickens out . If Russia is in , then normal battle resumes … is my opinion.
Iran can send lots of UAVs …..
Also mobilize Iraqi Shiite warriors against them and let U$ know that won’t be allowed to attack and kill Syrian, pro-government Shiites with impunity and can stay in Iraq peacefully.
That’s why US withdrew their forces from Iraq as they are vulnerable if there is a major conflict between the fierce Hez/Iran and the US forces in Syria.
The fact is all forces in Iraq and Syria would be attacked if a fight in serious is to take place and stubborn Americans refuse to leave.
It’s all showing and even Russia is sending more troops to Syria. Something big is about to happen
Sounds nice but I have never seen a swimming ATGM.
There are only very small areas where Iranian proxies can interact with SDF forces as the Euphrates is mostly between those forces. Furthermore, SDF forces do not have that many armoured vehicles, they are the ones using the ATGM and they do have a very good interaction with american manned and unmanned planes. So your advice might work against rebels in Idlib, but not very likely against SDF forces.
The use of ATGM by ground troops is the most effective way to have fire power like tank without being able to be targeted by air as proven in Lebanon 2006 . Air power cannot afford to kill only one soldier instead of 5 plus armour. That’s the war Israelis and Americans know how to fight.
That’s why the Houthis are able to take on the massive air power of SA and it would be the same in Syria if a fight is to happen against US forces .
By all logic and being surrounded with the air Force not able to take down the ground forces, Iranians and allies can easily finish off the Americans. No doubt about it.
These guys have not learnt the lessons of Lebanon 2006. That’s the reason why Iran was not attacked by Bush
Another thing ,US forces like the Israelis are in no mood to fight door to door for sure.
So long as It’s can assure a steady supply of weapons and manpower there is not an inch of chance US can stay
With lots of UAVs…..with precision guided missiles , SDF will be toast as US planes will find it hard to locate them and avoid Syrian/Iranian Sam’s assuming Russians remain silent .
Have said this long ago about exactly what you said , but some times you either have to shit or get off the pot. Turkey is now threatening Idlib region so the only thing is to do is make both of them an example at the same time.
The best out come would be if Turks and their proxies fight it off with the U$ and their proxies. U$’s destructive agenda for Syria is far more dangerous than Turkey’s.
That won’t happen and it’s time to realize Turkey is with US and not so much Russia. Iraq and Syria are making joint policies in regards to terrorists in the region and Russia can make great headway by supporting both nations and forget about appeasing the west as they continually look weak when they do.
This I warned about it was going to happen and time to draw the line in the sand. The west seems to understand confrontation better than negotiation and are fearful of both but will select the latter as it costs nothing.
The UN in the biggest vessel for the US, the International Law never applies for the US when they do the most Heinous crimes against humanity, but where they can’t do shit like N Korea, then they are the first one that are garbing for the International Law, and want the Security Council to do this and that in their favor…Typical US shit.
I agree my Orthodox brother. The aggression of the Yankee Imperialists and their Zionist Partners cannot go unanswered forever. Sooner or later they both need at the very least a bloodied nose. The question is how to do that without giving the Anglo Zionist maniacs license to start WW3?
3 easy steps to peace in the Middle East: 1. shooting down the U.S. airplane; 2. nukes to Syria; 3. nuclear sharing agreement with Syria, as per the Western European example.
Once the nukes are in Syria, the Yankee imperialists and the Zionists will understand that they have gone fucking too far.
Such are the rules of the game. Syria has nothing to lose, Russia has little to lose, Israel has everything to lose and U.S. puppets have a lot to lose.
Nice said have a WMD and they can never enter in your state, same as in North Korea, why the US go just enter N.Korea and blow it out, well they can’t they can bark as long as they like, because the only thing preventing them from entering and leveling the North is because the North have WMDs and the US has a lot to lose in that scenario.
i agree, but putin is too soft to do this, russia needs an absolutely savage leader like zhirinovsky

A US soldier somewhere in Syria said in a video: ‘Kill them all.’
True but he was referring to both moderate and extremist ragheads
Putin has shown to many times weaknesses and because those weaknesses Syria is unsafe and also Russians are in danger.The latest example will the shooting down Russia plane. If Russia would have strong leader no one will dare shut down Russia plane or attack Syria under Russia protection. Russia lost respect under Putin
It does appear that way. Maybe it will change if Putin gets elected as an Independent then his hands won’t be tied by party politics and he is free to act. Unfortunately the Russian government still has many US supporters embedded in the system and Putin has done what he could to remove the most dangerous, as an Independent then he has ‘people power’ and he may finish the job. Disappointed that Russia does not protect it’s allies to the same extent that the US does.
Protecting allies? Since when?
Color revolutions are just as likely in states that back the US as they are with states that do not. Erdogan got a taste of that as well. No man, the US wants chaos regardless of allies or not.
US using that excuse to protect SDF and attack SAA.
Nice excuse for Putin, but I am not buying.
We will just have to wait and see.
ActuAlly ure selling
Disappointed that Russia does not protect it’s allies to the same extent that the US does. I up voted you only due to that statement.. which is very correct..! The rest are all rubbish..! As I always mentioned it.. It’s not a bear as claimed.. it’s a neck chained bulldog.. I’m waiting for the chain to be untie.. then get myself extra popcorns.. tx
Like I said to Joe Doe, wait and see then determine what is your version of rubbish.
US Code For Protecting Their Allies – we never fight alone. Owing to not being very good at it.
Haha, how on earth does the US protect their allies?
I totally agree with you, Putin is either a true ally or is part of the problem. So far he is part of the problem. He has not even supplied Syria with the Air Defense S400 nor has he supplied advanced weaponry. He should be looked at with caution since he is always meeting with Nuttyahoo
He couldn’t supply MANPADs to SAA. Would that be a knee jerk?
It is perfectly fine meeting with Netanyahu. Both in Israel… and on the Syrian battlefield. The trouble is, the Russians are always doing only the former, never the latter.
Putin plays the long game, not giving a knee jerk reaction to every little provocation like the US regime.
He plays nothing. He is old and will die before possible checkmate.
What game(s) it’s when your plane are shut down(s), solder killed, your alliance are bomb and you do nothing. Under Putin, Russia lost respect and Russians are paying price. Not only Russian solders, but sportsmen’s and civilian(s) by kidnapping in another country and extradite to USA. Putin has shown many times that is very weak leader
Are you genuine or paid? I am not asking.
You better use you brain than asking fanny questions.
I am making a statement smarty,don’t you get it?
You can tell the paid, they resort to personal insults and bad language.
As a matter of fact paid trolls always speak softly, gently and in a most subtle way they pour their propaganda or .. they go passionate about something that most will agree on and then …bang! …you get the real message. I am surprised you haven’t noticed. There are trolls on both sides, you know. Among them you get independant oppinions,too.
So true. Especially the ones that start out passive, till you do not follow their script and as you say, they soon show themselves up.
I am sorry with those who do not agree with you my friend, but I fear that you are very correct in your comment, taking into account the behavior of Russia in the face of the insults of Israel and of her nurse the Americans since the beginning of the conflict. No respect for Russia and less for its allies, because respect is earned or lost with facts my friends. Because if the Americans and Israel knew that Russia would be able to unleash the very hell on them without worrying about the consequences, they would never dare to mess with their allies and much less with Russia itself.
Exactly. Just like you and few others who are not sleep walking through this world.
Fuck off Terence
Very powerful ad hominem.
Fuck off 888mladen
I understand you and I pity you, my friend. Because not everyone has enough intelligence to express themselves and make themselves understood politely.
You are supporting an obvious troll. Use YOUR brain Terence.
You are improving my son. Keep it up, using more words and less rudeness. Something is something, even though there is a long way to go yet, before starting doing more objective and logical comments with solid content instead of pure empty and silly speculations with non senses and children like statements, I fear.
Works two ways. So maybe Russia and its allies should refrain from trying to mess with US and its allies, like they did here and got their nose blooded.
Imo Russia knew this was going to happen, but, urged on by Iran, Assad took what he thought was a chance and got his nose smashed in.
The next time he will lsten to Russia and not to Iran, which would make Russia happy.
US and allies, who are not legally in America. Now how many other nations have they invaded and pillaged?
nothing but a government full of criminals and snakes, THE COUNTRY MUST BE SHUT DOWN!!
You will be absolutely right if what the Americans say about the Syrian aggression against them would be true, my friend. And the truth, those americans being true sicks compulsive liars, I am one hundred percent convinced that they lie about what happened there and most logically, their performance was no more than a well disguised warning to Turkey about their plans for Manjib. Think about my friend. Because unless they have serious suicidal inclinations, I very doubt and very much that of nowhere a group of a few 500 men have come up with the idea of assaulting the American forces and allies in the area without any clear and logical near o future goal in mind. Thank about my friend.
and yet its ok for US and its allies to illegally stay in syria and mess with them?? u fucking idiot i hope u get a bloody nose sometime so u know how it feels
Russian Presidential Election coming up in March and so many people, who hardly ever comment, now using soft psy-ops. Genuine or coincidence, so comes to mind.
Good point to take into account my friend. Good point.
What you just described is a sustained economic, proxy and cultural war on Russia by NATO. Under the circumstances of who’s lined up against them, Putin is actually handling that level of full scale aggression rather well. For the crazed Neo-Con cabal that are directing NATO policy, Russia and China are the only real obstacles to achieving their crazed fantasies, of complete global hegemony. The Neo-Cons want total and unassailable dominance from which to reorder the map of the world – and the damage that involves mean nothing to these people.
“Russia and China are the only real obstacles to their crazed fantasies” Unfortunately RU & CH have fantasies of their own which will never come through (like Silk Road aka Heaven on Earth ). Vatican and its US ruling elite know that they have but a short time and that gives them tremendous advantage over its contenders. They are operating in existential mode while RU & CH are not. That’s the reason why both of them think of consequences. Once you realize that your very existence is under the threat you don’t think about consequences. You throw everything in to the fight for the sake of your own survival.
How many times have many assumed that Russia would be so easy to control and pillage? How many have been seriously wrong?
It’s a war. Losses and casualty rate s have been miraculously low for the Russians. It’ s the SAA that are bearing the brunt of international aggression.
If it is a war — you named it — then, indeed, why not perceive it as a war and defend themselves and their allies MILITARILY? Not with fucking idle words!
Not international please, but only USA and Israel.
Is that why the world regards him as the World’s leading Statesman?
Like Stalin, giving Hitler the best part of the U.S.S.R., right?
Yeah, Putin is playing a long game and with every move of his, his is losing it more and more.
Reacting to a provocation is behaving in a predictable way – which is exactly what any adversary seeks. They want to initiate and control the terms of the conflict – so they can predict the sequence of events – and are always prepared for a reaction with preprepared counter response.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting. Sun Tzu Read more at: https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/sun_tzu_383158
You have a reason in part, but I do not think your point of view applies when it comes to two three four five six and a lot more of provocations without doing something about. That seems more weakness and cowardice than anything else worthy of being praised I’m afraid, my friend.
Thank heavens Putin’s calling the shots and not you. Ever read The Godfather? You’re like Sonny Corleone, a reactionary hot head, lacking the cold calculations of his father. Except unlike you, Sonny knew it was his weakness. And because of this, the Don knew Sonny should not run the family business.
Okay, okay. vent my son. Maybe you feel much better and happy with yourself in the end. Even when your comments do not contribute to anything constructive nor in the least, for me, your mental well being will always be in first place. Count on my support, my friend.
Stop being patronising Terence. Your age does not make you superior. Calling Putin a coward for not violently reacting is extremely childish.
Okey okey, keep going my son, keep going. What next?
Isn’t that what Hitler said about Stalin. Now how did they end up?
They ended up with ~30 mil casualties..
How many of the German Forces made it home, in one piece? The Soviet Union lost a lot, but, still saw off those that came to invade, thanks to the Battle of Stalingrad.
Putin is a pathetically weak leader. He should’ve armed Syria with effective air defense systems years ago. He basically did nothing until the barbarians were at the gates. Even now he should be on a political offensive demanding an international investigation into 9/11. Instead he supports the U.S. government’s ridiculous “official story”.
Syria is a sovereign nation. Russia is there to lend a helping hand, at the invitation of the legally elected Democratic Government of Syria. It is not there to take control of a sovereign nation.
I’m afraid you’ll have to find out a little more about of the true meaning of the word ”ally”, my friend. Even the false and illogical American justification of what really happened there includes the word “allies”, and that they supposedly acted to protect their “allies”, the Kurds of SDF, from the Syrian forces. Then, what do makes you think that Russia should not do the same to protect its also ”allies” in Syria, my friend?
I do know the meaning of an ally and who would wish to be an ally of the US. 19 years peace in total, since 4 July 1776. A nation that has no friends, just hostages. Sad really and that is before you get to trust.
Those operating in Syria, with the US, again none have been invited, but, seriously spent US $ billions on trying to pillage the natural resources. Now which nation makes a habit out of that?
You are very correct in your last comment and I greatly share your vision of the invasive and conquering policy of the Americans towards the other regions with a lot of resources and defenseless, my friend.
Thank you and what a waste of life. For the greed of a few.
You’re welcome my friend, you’re welcome. And yes, what a waste, and a big one, i fear.
Obviously, this warmongering madness is not about “greed”.
Greed and desire to control the natural resources of others. OIL.
Nonsense; you don’t spend trillions and risk planetary extinction to make billions. You’re trying to find a “worldly” explanation for the actions of demon-possessed elite. This is about the forcible imposition of the Satanic, messianic, judeo-communist “New World Order” upon the whole world; this is about the attempt to fulfill the agenda of Isaiah 14:13,14.
Really? Don’t read the Bible.
Check it out some time; there are some amazing things in there if you seek them out.
Nonsense; it obviously has NOTHING to do with “natural resources”.
It so does. Pillage, pillage and pillage, for the greedy idiots that believe they have the right to take it all. With no regards of the millions that lose their lives along the way.
Pure nonsense. The people at the top are already trillionaires, billionaires and multimillionaires. Why would they risk planetary extinction to try to get a little more? It makes no sense. If they have the unaccountable power to illegally and unconstitutionally invade Syria, for example, they also have the power to raid the treasury, print money, etc.
Believe that you want. Every little counts, so comes to mind. Or jut easy to blackmail or coerce?
Try doing some simple observation and REASONING for a change.
Because I do not agree with your take on things? I don’t think so.
Because you’re obviously not doing any reasoning, that’s why.
Mirror transposition/reverse blame. As I said, because I do not see things your way.
LOL! It’s not a matter of “seeing things my way”; you have no argument to support your claims. You made a bare assertion.
That is your view. Personally, when somebody uses ‘jew controlled’, I automatically switch off from whatever they have to say. The satanists high-jack religion and not just one. Tony Blair, wasn’t he a protestant who converted to the Roman Catholic Faith?
So you’re jewish? That’s what I figured. That explains your nonsense. BTW Tony Blair is a jew tool just like Winston Churchill was a jew tool.
I didn’t say he was there to “take control of a sovereign nation” did I? That’s what the jew-controlled U.S. government does. My point was that if Russia had been proactive about defending it’s legitimate geopolitical interests, years ago, when the imperial agenda of the jew-controlled U.S. government was already so obvious, the barbarians would not now be at the gates.
Easy to be an armchair gossip. Remember, what Russia was like, just over 17 years ago, when President Putin and his team first took control. Look how far they have come, but, at the end of the day, they are just human, and mere mortals.
It makes me laugh, what some people expect of President Putin and his team, yet, say nought with regards their own weak and ineffectual leaders.
It’s easy to make flimsy excuses, but it’s been a matter of general public knowledge, since being publicly stated by General Wesley Clark in 2007 that: “We’re (U.S. government) going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” How did the Russian government not know this public domain information?
It’s easy to make flimsy excuses, but if the average person on the street knew that 9/11 was an inside job ten years ago, why didn’t the Russian government? As late as 2011 Putin was making statements in support of the “official” U.S. government lies about 9/11. He still can’t see that 2 + 2 = 4? Seriously?
It makes me laugh that some people make excuses for an inexcusable refusal to see reality a long time ago by the Russian government. Putin even admits he made a mistake in trusting the corrupt West. And then what does he do? He goes on making the same mistake again and again. Now that’s funny…and inexcusable.
Sorry, as I laugh. How many nations are there in the world and what are they actually doing, with regards sorting out those who cherish invasions?
Is President Putin and his team human and just mere mortals, or are they responsible for the insanity that can be found in US, NATO and European Governments?
Where was Russia, just 17 years ago and where is she now? If it was a Russian General, bragging about ‘invading 7 nations in 5 years’, ending in Iran, I could understand your anxiety. However, it was not. Just happens to be one nation that had the intelligence and professionalism, to stand up and make a difference.
“Sorry, as I laugh. How many nations are there in the world and what are they actually doing, with regards sorting out those who cherish invasions?”
Sorry, as I laugh, but with most nations, it’s not a matter of “what are they doing”, but what can they do as a practical matter? Does Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya (or Panama for that matter) have the military might and resources to resist U.S. aggression? No, of course not. How about Russia? That’s a different story. Russia does have the means to resist; what it apparently lacks is the will. Do you see the difference?
“Is President Putin and his team human and just mere mortals, or are they responsible for the insanity that can be found in US, NATO and European Governments?”
What a stupid thing to say. Obviously, Putin and his team ARE RESPONSIBLE for not opposing the aggressor a long time ago when it was obvious what the aggressor’s agenda was. If a serial killer is methodically murdering everyone on your street, and making it known that he’s going to kill everyone, are you going to sit there and do nothing until the last minute when he’s already at your door? Why did Russia not veto the UN resolution on Libya? Why did Russia not arm Syria years ago when the agenda was already obvious? Why did Russia cancel the delivery of S-300 air defense systems to Iran? Why did Russia not demand an international investigation into 9/11? If Russia does not want to shoulder ant responsibility for its own sake or that of any other country, it should at least have the decency to give up its seat on the UN Security Council.
“If it was a Russian General, bragging about ‘invading 7 nations in 5 years’, ending in Iran, I could understand your anxiety.”
Huh? You’re not making any sense. My point was: It was obvious a long time ago – from generally known public domain information such as the PNAC papers and statements from Gen. Wesley Clark – that the U.S. had an agenda for creative destruction in the Mideast. But rather than be proactive and arm its friend and ally Syria and Iran, Putin did NOTHING (nothing except cancel the delivery of S-300 to Iran). Putin did nothing until the barbarians were already at the gates.
“However, it was not. Just happens to be one nation that had the intelligence and professionalism, to stand up and make a difference.”
What are you talking about?
Lol u troll
I have already given you a foolproof explanation of who the troll is…
oh really, where the f* is that?
No, John Doe, it’s not weakness. Russia is wise enough not to step into the traps the US is setting to incite WW3. Russia (and Syria) will hit at the right occasion and prevail in the end.
Putin knows revenge is a dish best served cold!
For it to be effective, it needs to be hot and swift.
Putin got famous due to his bold braveness when he went out alone of his ussr embassy and told them straight to their face that if proceed you will all be killed.. He got big balls at that time..! Don’t know what could had happen now.. lost tracks I guess..!
Totally in agreement with you, my friend. Hot and swift.
Of course, it is not weakness, it is plain treacherous cowardice!
When will the frigging morons stop spewing their insane apologetic bullshit?!
The last time Russia acted so “wisely”, Russia had been “avoiding the trap” until it lost almost all its European territories and tens of millions of its citizens (with estimates ranging from 21600000 to almost 40000000).
Seriously, what kind of brain damage on needs to declare this dastardly act of aggression a trap setting to incite WW3?!
If Russia does not help Syria to respond militarily to this dastardly act of U.S. aggression, next “the trap” will be in the Baltic cuntries and then deep inside Russia’s territory…
You are correctly pointing towards Russia’s small population. At present is it only 140 million or so against USA over 300 million.
Russia is not a world power anymore. It is now somewhere between first rate and second rate. Imo only two first classpowers , China and USA. India is also going to be a first class power, though it might take a decade more to be there. Brasil will be too if they can get their act together.
Then go get more allies and plans on how to end these miserable wars on our planet.. I believed there’s a lot of countries would like to joined for revenge sake.. hehehe
Correct, if Russia keeps up with it’s phobia concerning it’s image and respectability and wanting desperately to please the west and show that they are not ‘bad guys’ then Russia is going to fail. Having diplomacy and good manners do play a role but there comes a time that Russia needs to stand it’s ground. USSR lost the Balkans because they wanted to please the west, now they can lose the Middle East by not doing what needs to be done and that is to confront the US and get them to leave Syria. There won’t be a WW3 because those idiots in the US don’t want to turn into vapor and lose all of their wealth and possessions.
Very good point.
The last time Russia acted so “wisely”, Russia had been “avoiding the trap” until it lost almost all its European territories and tens of millions of its citizens (with estimates ranging from 21600000 to almost 40000000).
Is it time to show off more power so that Russia won’t lose more land and soldiers with state of the art arms as claimed and braggs about..? I don’t see the relevant of ur statements..
Soft psy-ops and Presidential Elections, so comes to mind.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting. Sun Tzu Read more at: https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/sun_tzu_383158
“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting” That’s why CH is doing next to nothing to help SY. Are you talking about ballet or war?
I actually like ballet.
War, such a waste of life, owing to the jealousy, envy, greed and so much more, of others. With no respect of life, just assuming that they can use their forces as nought more than cannon fodder. Look at the countries, that fail to respect those that sign up, to defend their nations and how they abuse them, in non-stop, back to back invasions. Then look at the nations that only use their forces for defence and how they treat and look after them. What a difference a nation makes, good and bad.
Sometimes you can’t avoid a fight, and this is one of those times. The jew-controlled U.S. is going to keep pushing until it gets a fight. Russia and China need to get together and strike the empire fast and hard – with overwhelming force – at such a time when the empire would least suspect an attack. If there is to ever be a chance for peace on this planet, America’s ability to make war needs to be destroyed.
Russia is playing the game of chess The Anglo-Saxon forces understand that a total defeat of ISIS leaves themselves open to be occupiers of a sovereign nation. The internal borders are forfforsoverign Syria so with IS gone the yanks have no reason to be there, thatsthwhy they have declared they have routed IS What you think will happen when the so called moderates in idlib ghout the area around Darra etc aar liberated You see the US need a directa attack on there band of mercenaries In time the SDF will begin to fight against.one another The US regime are try trying to To forces stop the killing of there sunnisu proxies
ABORTION RIGHTS IN KHASHAM!!!!
Here are the straight goods here… THERE WAS NO “UNPROVOKED ATTACK” BY THE SAA AGAINST THESE FRAUD “COALITION” FORCES.. PERIOD!” What is happening here is the SDF/Kurds have ‘staged’ the “assault” as a false flag method to get the US now directly involved in the war against the Damascus government…
Yes, it should be obvious to even the most brain dead out there that the US is losing and losing badly… Therefore out of desperation they are trying this fraud to get their nice little war against Assad off and running…
What happened here is that YPG refused to turn over ISIS Kurds who committed MURDER in the region and most recently. The US are making false accusations because they are running into people uprising against the US and SDF combined Tyranny in the region.
What are the chances that this will not backfire on the Coalition.? It is probably 0%.
Have the same impression. Russia is ineffective in protecting SAA and coalition and that is a bad sign which makes the US even braver. Russia sitting on the sideline and not making any effort to get the US out of Syria does not bode well for the Russians. One would expect the SAA to have MANPADS to shoot down the US aircraft or they SAA would have used their recent deployment of missiles in Idlib district. Russia, Iran and Hezbollah may as well go home, they have lost the war in Syria.
What happened was members of ISIS serving in SDF were deployed in a region that was brutalized by ISIS and then they committed another murder recently and the locals wanted the perpetrator which both the US and SDF refused to turn over. Now try to get some background this was available on twitter hours ago.
Don’t use twitter and as long as there are people like yourself that can fill in the blanks and then we can decide whether what you say is true then there is no need to follow a propaganda machine like twitter. Thanks for information. Will check it out.
This came from a news report that was retweeted on twitter, it was in local Syrian paper I believe.
There are some really interesting Syrian citizen/ journalist based accounts on Twitter. Following are all interesting and informative, with lot of media material won’t see in MSM:
Good source. Use then on daily bases. Ivan is the best of them all.
Hey John. Shooting down US Coalition planes seems to be low priority now. US bombing hasn’t stopped anything in the past. Further, I think that the SAA and Co. game is to take some pieces off the US chessboard, at the most oportune times. Making headline news is not how they role. They file all the stuff for later, do what really counts at the moment, then clip the nuts of the transgressors when it is convenient. The reaction coming from Occidental officials, seems to indicate ever increasing fear and caution concerning the SAA and Co., no matter what they portray in public.
IS has been beating the SDF up but good lately in DE. I think it was a punk, bs move, just to make it look like they are doing something. I mean after all, the Kurds in Iraq appear to be eating crow with Iran and the Afrin crew is getting bled white by the Turks, being forced to relocate assets from all over Syria. I could be wrong but, it just looks like an okie doke move by the US, that will burn them down the line. My two cents on it. I wish you well. :)
Appreciate your comment John, thanks. Russian strategy is strange and I do know that they play the long game by out maneuvering the opposition and making statements that appear friendly but my concern is that the Russians are showing themselves to be unreliable as an ally where the US is showing the opposite. All the best to you also, cheers.
There is not “Russian strategy”, just haphazard fumbling, as if they were drunk, seriously.
“Outmaneuvering” means encircling boldly, not retreating cowardly!
An then they just let it go.
Indeed, they take some worthless pieces and then they just lose the game in one single move.
Hello Anti. I get you. Yeah, stupid stuff like attacking SAA elements on the other side of the Euphrates is viscerally annoying but, it ain’t nothing. The highest priority, in my opinion, is taking things of value. So, let’s take a walk down memory lane and visit what happened at Al-Tanf.
Al-Tanf was a major operation, long planned and a big investment. When SAA elements, Hez mainly I think, rain into the line of death the US made an example out of one o their units. They tore it up. This probably put a big smile on some Israeli types too.
What happened next? The SAA shrugged it off, moved even closer to Al-Tanf, then cut off the Coalition in the race for the border. It also cemented cooperation with Iraqi PMU’s on their side of the border. In real terms, this put US planners and it executors in the corner of the classroom, wearing the dunce cap, in front of the world. Further, it probably scared the crap out of the Israeli’s, knowing then that nobody is going to stop Hez. Try killing a unit of Israeli or US troops and see what happens. They would be crying like babies, running nonstop news coverage over it. The SAA/Russian/Iran/Hez/et al response? …… They shut the Coalition game down, with hardly a peep out of the SAA and Co.
The ‘by the book’ response from the Coalition should not have been launching a few fireworks over a perceived transgression. It should have been vertically inserting 1/9 ( the walking dead ) reinforced, doing a thorough house cleaning, thereby demonstrating the will to really bring the pain. Instead, they bring all of a pinprick on a T-Rex’s buttocks. Pfffffft.
The SAA and it’s allies are always playing the bigger game, while the Coalition is always playing the 24 hour news cycle. I like to watch the bigger game myself. I wish you well Anti.
right the whole thing is a little weird, russians give the green light for turkey to invade
US would post the eviction notice. .. Except it’s way to much fun and opportunist to torment everyone in the Mid east, While the Tribe gets its Opium racket with the Kurds up and running.
Since the Opium wars of British Empire. …the Game uses this to undermine nations, regime chsnge,…MIC the place.. Party with depleted Uranium.
ISIS in Afghanistan now say They** will attack Russia. Putin ended Chechnya war with force and dome Backsheesh payoffs. US pallets of Cash $$ for Iraqi trash was 2003 and still going.
The Syrian war is not some new turf for greater Israel
It’s Crime World. ..with Kurds being LA Street gang for US while Turkish Takfiri trash Gangster Northern Syria.
The winners in the Syrian war….Are All the Syrians who got out and made it USA and Canada. Not sure about Europe….all the bombings and gang rape suggests it’s the Mid east in colder climate.
Brad a nice book for you. Here you go: https://media.loyolapress.com/assets/ignatian-spirituality-sampler.pdf
Well let’s see as we now see both Iraq and Syria are committing to a joint cooperation on Terrorism in Syria and Iraq. Kind of like local ideas and initiatives in the region. Then on another note ISF and PMF are asking again for a further withdrawal of US forces from the region, notice it’s the US being asked to leave and no others of the Coalition there.
Russia’s primary concern is west of the Euphrates, the Saker’s article made it clear.
If the U.S. want to enrage Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran, (with the Kurds and embedded ISIS) then upon their head be it!
The Saker is just a wanker, too. I remember him babbling about a brilliant move on Russia’s part, about the U.S pilots living in fear just by being tracked and getting a lock-on and so on.
Well, it was all apologetic bullshit,… as usual, after all.
As for Saker’s “con-wincing argument”, here is the official stance: “MOSCOW (Reuters) – The Kremlin said on Friday that maintaining Syria’s territorial integrity was vital for Russia and that it expected all the relevant delegations to attend peace talks aimed at ending the Syrian conflict in Geneva next week.
Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesman, told reporters keeping Syria territorially whole was probably “a cornerstone” for many countries and a priority for Russia.”
To get territorial integrity, first political integrity needs to be achieved.
Which will be best served by concentrating on defeating the primary threats to Damascus.
So, how do you defeat the U.S.A., then?
Because I take you at your words: you talk about defeating the primary threat. The primary threat to Syria is the United States of Aggression, as it has always been during the past ~70 years.
Having their arch-enemy running a half of their country is the primary threat in my book.
Time defeats the U.S., the fact that it is creating a de facto Kurdistan shall be not welcomed by any of the regional players either.
The Russians have an interest within Syria, but nothing greater. (and that interest is being preserved, i.e littoral Syria and Damascus – Syria to the west of the Euphrates)
The friends of Washington and Israel are the enemies of Muslim nations.
US invading forces in Syria showing one more time their main goal is partition of country and formation of Kurdistan State. They simply do not allow Syrian forces to advance along eastern side of Euphrates River. The problem with this option is Turkey as they certainly will not allow any Kurdistan state on its borders. I have no doubt head on collision between US and Turkey is ahead of us. Can’t wait.
True. One interesting old YuTube video from 2008. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tm_iB2TNne0
yes.. yes.. ur right.. have you ordered more popcorns.. I did.. Peace
People should realize that SDF( The Kurdish portion) have really no say in that line of the euphrates. It’s completely US-occupied territory. BTW SDF the kurdish part is not even the largest groups in SDF itself. The arabs and turkmens within that Organisation number equal to the kurds.
There is Arab SDF-unit and Kurdish-SDF unit. It’s not Afrin nor Manjib or Hasakah where it’s kurdish majority. The locals in Raqqah and Deirzoor have signed up to join. Long story short it’s an American project and has zero to do with ISIS anymore but still used as a card from time to time. They also recently said they would stay for a long time. They also refused to exit Manbiij despite turkish pressure.
The Americans ain’t going anywhere as long as there is Oil and Gas flowing. Ones they have dried the area they will leave
The U.S. having brought Iran into Syria, (as with Iraq) now has to stay there.
It’s the U.S. that is now trapped within another indeterminate quagmire. (of its own makings)
Destroying countries snd supporting terrorism gives them no rights but only guilt.
Iraqi airspace has to be being used for American aircraft to reach the operational area in question. Is the Iraqi government fine with that? I doubt it. If I were the Syrian government I would press the issue with Iraq, publicly. It is election year there, after all. And the SAA doesn’t have to respond militarily to this provocation. Simply site this attack and whatever issue with the SDF that started this flare up and close the YPG transportation routes that the government opened up for the Afrin resupply and reinforcement. Any U.S. bombing or actions against the SAA equals ten closed days to the YPG transit requests. State the policy loud and clear and stick to it. Use the leverage that the YPG hatred of the Turkish incursion gives you.
The unity of Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia is very necessary to bring peace, stability to the region but Turkey and Saudi Arabia is not ready for this and keeping this war going on and people die. I don’t know this is called leadership or butchership. Assad have not attacked Turkey, US, UK or Saudi Arabia but this is the opposite and still they blaming Assad. This is completely sick situation.
They are very strange bedfellows. There will be no unity their and US and NATO know it.
It’s hard to oppose US regime. Unfortunately Turkey is doingthe same thing. They are against YPG but the jets that support YPG come from Incirlik Air Base in Turkey.
It is not hard to oppose the U.S. regime at all. In fact, it is as easy as pushing a button that launches a volley of cruise missiles.
That is the only way to let the Murricans know what their criminal government has done.
If the Vietnamese had backed down, the Murricans would have never withdrawn.
Hey Zios! You think that will slow down the SAA? ???
Of course it will; it already has. The US tried to set up their first “red line” around Tabqa when the Syrian plane was shot down. Then they tried again, a bit more forcefully, at the Euphrates, where geography is in their favor, and it stuck. When the moderates were being airlifted from Al Tanf to the East, several people here were alarmed “There goes the entire East!” Supporters of wise Putin policies pooh-pooh’d that notion, but in the end it happened of course. And the loyalists have been successfully intimidated from retaking Al Tanf as well.
USA IS NUMBER ONE TERRORIST STATE IN THE WORLD!!! ALL IT DOES IS EXPORT, WAR, DEATH, MURDER, ARROGANCE, GREED, AND IMPERIALISM!!! THIS COUNTRY MUST BE SHUT DOWN!!!
It will certainly be dealt with but not by Putin or any mere mortal. It’s too big for humans to tackle it because there are superhumans involved invisible to humans which have been masters of deception since times immemorial. We better learn that there is more then meets the eye in every conflict on this Earth.
Who are these superhumans you speak of? May I ask how you know this?
The only legitimate coalition is the Syrian government coalition. The Jew world order coalition is part of the criminal regime change project in Syria, which includes the terrorists that they’re both supporting and using as an excuse to be in Syria in violation of international law and UN resolutions. Any deconfliction agreement is a temporary containment mechanism to stop the spread of regime change invasion, aggression and criminality. And provide support to the civilian populations. Until those areas can be turned over to the Syrian government.
The useless and incompetent body is owned by the US.. there’s nothing much can be done.. and me too always wondering why the hell is Russia play by that (international) rule and even ask others to follow suits when Yankees are ignoring it all this while.. Putin must be a faggot..!
The government foot print grows every day while the regime change foot print shrinks. That’s what’s important.
This is all odd. Despite the reason why the SAA forces were going to the Conoco/Al-Tabiya Gas Plant (to get the ISIS/Kurd), I thought the SDF had already agreed to turn it over to Syria (as negotiated by Russia). From ZeroHedge on Oct. 20th, 2017:
US-Backed Syrian Kurds Transfer Key Gas Field To Russians After Secret Talks
I wonder what ever happened to that? The Al Tabiya gas field and Al Jafar oil field are in the same area that Russia had imagery of ISIS, US SOF and SDF all in the same locations and unconcerned about the others. Like they were allies.
Well it’s the Middle East after all, nothing much will come of that unless you HOLD your counterparty to their agreement. If Russia goes out of the way to show that they’re paper tigers, it’d only be human for the SDF Kurds to think “Hey, if we can have it all, then why not?”
There cis a difference between turning over technical control over an oilfield to a say an Assad controlled company, or turning over military control over to and Assad controlled force.
Likely SDF would be amenable to the former at a certain price, but never to the latter. This has been understood even when the fields were taken.
Why no SAM missile defence? Why is it only SAA and Russian planes get shot down in Syria? A lot of people, me included, were dreading the day the US switched from pretending to attack ISIS to attacking the SAA.
Don’t worry, they already losted. This is desperate attempt to get attention, such: ‘We’re still there and watching you.’ It won’t take long till they move Sams there too. Just in case.
Because they are fucking morons. Nothing more than that. Sad but true.
Nope.. because Russia is to faggot to fight back..! Remember this.. Russia is a neck chained bulldog.. not bear..!
Perhaps the Syrian government needs to rethink whether they will allow further SDF reinforcements to go to Afrin through territory controlled by the SAA.
Agreed.. that is a boneheaded decision by the SAA when you consider the SDF is still manipulated by the evil Americans
They couldn’t do nothing.
Turks fighting Kurds is a win-win for the Syrian Government. The longer the fight goes on the weaker both Turks and Kurds become.
They the kurds are being grouped into one corner/place to be eliminated.. they are no good gypsies traitor that should be killed once and for all..! In future there shall be no mentioning of genocides.. Assad won’t be blame as he did help by giving them path to help.. and turks would just said those eliminated are terrorists.. job done..! Too bad, the kurds deserved it..
Simply put the Anglo American Zionist Bankster Cabal has no interest in peace in Syria and have never given up on their evil agenda. The US is utterly controlled by the Cabal and will do exactly what they’re told to do whatever the stakes. The Cabal is an enemy far worse than Nazi Germany ever was and the US is their tool and standard bearer of their intensely evil quest for global hegemony and control of the world’s resources and its peoples, most of whom will be just indentured serfs. ISIS and all the other proxies including the Kurds are mere pawns in their global war for the Middle East and control of key petroleum resources to underpin their financial weapon the US$. The Destruction of the economy of the USA is vital to the destruction of the Cabal’s power and its quest for Global hegemony of their Corporatist – Fascist Dictatorship. Hence, right now the world is poised on the brink of an epochal war of Mankind against ultimate evil and sadly for the American’s they are footsoldiers of the Evil force.
US has no intention of letting go of the gas and oil fields they captured.
These oil fields are just a drop in the ocean. The Kurds may need them for income but the oil fields are peripheral to US aims.
Again and again: of course they don’t need that oil for themselves. But if you control it, you DENY its revenue to the Assad govt so that the latter can’t rebuild their country–which subsequently Nikki can harp about to her heart’s desire. If your goal is to destroy Syria this is exactly what you should do, and the Kremlin is standing by saying “go right ahead, it has nothing to do with us”.
They just want to run a rogue state carved out of Syrian territory. All the more because the contested areas are not even Kurdish, they are Arabian.
The Kurds have the right to Kurdish lands, but not to Arabian lands.
The end of the article has a good explanation. The US re-ignited the tensions between Kurds and the Syrian government with the killing of Syrian soldiers. It aims at averting the Kurds from collaboration with the SAA, preserve the remaining ISIS from agressive moves of the SAA, threatens the pocket of SAA on the east side of Euphrates. So, I consider, from the US point of view, it’s a well calculated risk that insure the USA from losing the Syrian war with the loss of their Kurds proxies. Cynical and efficient. USA are good at creating and keeping chaos alive. The dead are not US therefore they don’t matter. I present my respects to their families and friends. That’s halas the only thing I can do.
How good is that explanation to those who lost their loved ones by cowardly act of the aggressor? How many times will US receive a free allowance by RU to commit such a heinous crime against somebody whom RU calls its ally? It’s clear how RU is loosing slowly but surely its support base among the readers of SF. Do they care?
Do you prefer WWIII that would secure the positions of the cynics who gave that order ? Read “1984” if you will understand what I mean. You have excellent reasons to hate the US but it belongs to the system described by Orwell in his book. An hot WWIII would mean deaths by the 100s millions of people. Not to submit OK but you’re asking the Russians to take the brunt of that war with your idea. They’re realist enough to be in no hurry starting it unless they run out of way to counter the USA. Time is running against the USA not in favour of them.
You know what you are a coward. You are trying to rationalize somebodies crimes with your positive thinking which is nothing else but a mask hiding your cowardly attitude.
I guess you ought to tell the Russians that Stalin ought to have backed down and retreated before Hitler beyond the Urals and the Volga.
After all, Hitler did not want anything more, merely extending his living space to the Urals and the Volga…
You seem to be one on the morons who keep babbling about a hot WW3, which the Russians would not start anyway. And if it is to come, then it will come regardless of how much the Russians do not want it, except in a less favourable position for Russia.
Russia is also showing a complete disregard for international law — and it is precisely this disregard that precipitates the war.
When will you finally learn from your past mistakes??!
Not really… The U.S. airplanes must be shot down. Any U.S: airplane flying over Syrian territory will be fair game. And the one getting close must be warned and then shot down, even by Russia, as per the agreed rules of engagement and following the U.S. example.
Something like you have entered the airspace of the Syrian Arab Republic. You have 20 seconds to change your course and leave the airspace of the Syrian Arab Republic immediately… (or else you will have 50 seconds to count down to emergency catapult ejection).
As for the Kurds, they need to be given a choice: either renounce cooperation with the US, or become a target themselves. After that, it will simply be a matter of their choice…
Hmm I kinda don’t get it. Earlier kurdish forces came to Afrin. Now they r attacking syrian army.
You’re a traitor.
You’re allowing the americans and the jews to attack and kill Russians.
The Saudis give MANPADs to the moslem terrorists, Putin sells S-400s to the Saudis.
The Turks and their jihadi allies shoot down Russian jets and kill their pilots, Putin sells S-400s to them.
The Israelis and the Americans bomb and kill Putin’s allies, the Syrians, Putin allows them to murder with impunity the people he ostensibly came to help.
Putin is a liar and a zionist traitor.
I understand you perfectly by expressing yourself in that way of my beloved Russia and the truth that situation causes me a lot of anger just like you. Hopefully the reaction of Russia to this situation is in accordance with that last cowardly provocation of the American pigs against its Syrian ally. I hope it will different that time.
It won’t be different because Putin is a zionist crypto jew.
There is a lot out there to make you wander which side he is on.
I really do not know anything personal about Putin, other than (one of) his daughter(s) living in the Netherlands.
As far as foreigh policies go, he is a smart cooky, even though I totally oppose his European policies. As for Syria, he does not really care about it as long as Assad stays in power, his bases are secure and he will not lose too much of Russia’s investments. Anything more, such as embarrissing US, damaging Nato, is just a bonus.
The problem is that Russia has many casualties and not plan for Syria.If Russia not retaliate such attacks will happen again and again in the near future.
RU is mainly reacting in a very lukewarm way rather then being proactive and imposing the rules of the game to the opponent.
In fact, Russia has already. Lavrov merely said that the U.S. wanted to partition Syria.
Gosh, the Russians are even greater fucktards than we have hoped!
What is this fucking profile photo?? Are you a anticapitalist or a nazi??
Yes my friend, you are very right and correct in your comment.
WHat did you thini, that Putin was a libertator or a antiimperialist leader?? hahahah, Putin always has been an autoritan and capitalist leader, who only work for his economic elite, never for her worker class
Yes, true. And the Bolsheviks were jews who enabled the Armenian genocide. The Bolsheviks later organized the genocide of Christian Russians as we all know. You Russians are not very smart, are you? You embrace the worst the jews have to offer one after the other: first communism then capitalism BOTH of which are different names for fascism.
Just like when ussr left Afghanistan right..? The pattern is there..! and furthermore.. the so called sofistikated and state of the art weapons are in the wrong hands which is not even ally..! Putin is really fake..! but.. let’s see what happens after this.. which I doubt something real would take place.. Russia only show off towards terrorists in term of retaliate but for its allies and not to Yankees.. hehehe.. something is likely not right somewhere.. it’s either his afraid, coward.. or insane.. lol
