According to the Russian Defense Ministry terrorists in Syria posses weapons capable of downing Syrian military-transport planes delivering humanitarian aid to besieged areas.

“Indeed, militants possess weapons such as ZU-23 [anti-aircraft gun] and others that are capable of hitting targets at the height of 4,000 meters, especially, such a big aircraft as Syrian Air Force’s IL-76 military transport plane,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told journalists.

According to Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov such attacks by terrorists were recorded when the first batch of Russian-Syrian humanitarian aid was sent to Deir ez-Zor.

“It [the cargo delivery operation] is very risky. In most cases delivery is performed at night without any illumination.”

The Syrian authorities confirmed that Russian humanitarian aid had been successfully delivered to areas besieged by terrorists.

“They [Syrian authorities] confirmed that the humanitarian aid is ditributed to people in need,” Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.

We remember, on Jan. 15, a cargo plane of the Syrian Air Force using Rusian P-7 platforms airdropped a total of 50 tons worth of food supplies and basic necessities to Deir ez-Zor.

    Syrian and Russian cargo planes should drop the cut off heads of the terrorists onto Raqqa, with a smiley face small parachute. Followed by the terrorists torso’s, then legs and feet. About 5000 every day. Let ISIS eat that for their lunch. This could be over in a heartbeat. The US dropped the equivalent of eleven atom bombs on Hanoi in a ten day period. There wasn’t a school, hospital, or brick in one piece. Just Jane Fonda hiding in a bunker. A 79 year old psychpathic retard, who Obama has in charge of the Senate Armed Services, is spending American tax dollars to get his wish, before he fades into his sunset. Mr. Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran, McCain evidently did win the presidency in 2008. That’s right about the time American’s lost their jobs and homes, but the Congress had the money to start funding the terrorists. Spent BILLIONS to take out Khadafi, and tried taking out Assad. But, of course we had to have civilians citizens of those countries killed and displaced first.
    Now the screetching, arm waving bride of Chucky wants to he our President. Does anyone really know what time it is? Bullwinkle Obama has put sanctions on just about the whole world, while we owe ourselves 19 TRILLION bucks. Germany asked to see their gold stored in our vaults, two years ago. She wanted it tested for purity. Obama gives her an IOU, then has her phone tapped.
    Our country tis of the, sweet land of Liberty, to thee I rap.
