      What a cool driver after I finally watched the video. Unfortunately for 10 minutes I just stared at the header video thinking when it would dam well hit something:

    pkk assholes. they are fighting the zionist geopolitical agenda. they used to call themselves marxists.now they serve the bankers – who want to make the most of the middle east.

      Yep. Marx was a third cousin of Mayer Rothschild who also lived in London at that time (member of Parliament). MR wanted Marx to infiltrate socialist movements and take it over so there would be a central bank. Where there’s a central bank, there is control over the state. MR actually had to pressure KM into finishing the manifesto because KM was too busy giving talks on free trade in London.

      I’m glad people like you make stupid nonsensical posts. It shows the gamut of bias that is out there…never mind your post made ZERO sense.

    • FlorianGeyer

      South Front is mere reporting on all parties to the Syrian conflict. Would you prefer to only see censored material ?

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      They have censored material on the MSM and on allegedly independent sites it’s better to not show favor as this is an information site airing both sides , you may not agree with it.

    • Bob

      Your attempt at disruptive trolling = fail

  • nshah

    The ungrateful gypsis with their news toys sponsored by yankee bastards..! soon their time will come..soon..!

  • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

    Terrorists displaying the US supplied weaponry , doesn’t look good for the US making claims it doesn’t support terrorism and terrorists. Just more nails in the coffin showing the blatant disregard the US has for it’s allies and the world.

  • Solomon Krupacek

    these russian weapons are weak. one is not able to hit low motion target, second hit and not kill the soldiers. russian rocket are such new year petards.
    i saw dozens of russian official vedeos whre russian choppers/planes attacjed isis car. the car was hit and the jihadist ran away. either the jihadists are tough jinns, or russians have no mine for enough gunpowder. :)))
    last time also showed video about revenga attack for airbase. they hit one truck, but the building was not affected. here onanized the haters. BUT! after previous russian videos nobody died :P

    • Eskandar Black

      How many Shekels for such a ruthless anti russian bias post?

      • Solomon Krupacek

        the truth pains, is it?

        • Eskandar Black

          your english pains more

          • Solomon Krupacek

            your problem

    • Gregory Louis

      So I see you didn’t follow the Afgan Wars….either of them where one of them literally had Russian against Russian Equipment and the other was NATO vs Russian equipment. Look at some spec ops videos from US-UK forces and they’ll tell you that an RPG can kill you from 9 football fields away cause that’s how your suppose to use them…and you can barely see anything at that distance….to say Russian equipment is bad is really laughable cause if that’s the case why do so many countries have their weapons lol

      • Solomon Krupacek

        as i remeber, russians lost the afghan war. western rockets rocked the russians. :P

        • Anirudh Vikram

          so ? by your logic the americans lost the vietnam war, hence their weapons are bad ! the russians didn’t lose in afghan, they just ran out of money. And, they don’t have a printing press.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            yes, in jungle the russian weapons were better

        • Gregory Louis

          So the Taliban and the Mujaheddin didn’t use Russian missiles is that what your saying cause they did….and also Russia didn’t lose the USSR did….

    • NeoLeo

      blah, blah, more incomprehensive monkey gibberish from this nato-nazi degenerate.

    • PZIVJ

      Not so wise Solomon:
      “they hit one truck, but the building was not affected.”
      The target was the head choppers, not the building.
      The GRU did a fantastic job there, this is without a doubt !

      • Solomon Krupacek

        yup, in the truck are the jihadists :)) tell such tales for your grandma. :DDD

        • PZIVJ

          The video clearly shows the dickheads running to the truck, and not the building.
          Looks like they wanted to change vehicles, and then an unexpected BOOM :D

    • goingbrokes

      That’s a TOW missile.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        on the material not

      • Skagos

        It’s a KORNET. Even if not, its defintely Russian/Soviet made.

  • Eskandar Black

    Arming the Kurds could only lead to a conflict with Turkey.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      false flag only

    • goingbrokes

      Part of the plan.

  • RamboDave

    Just keep in mind, that although the helicopter was able to avoid the missile, what if the target was a civilian airline with 200 people getting ready for takeoff on a tarmac?
    People everywhere around the world are all going to be at risk now because the US has supplied these missiles to terrorists. And, although it was the Kurds that fired the missile, history has demonstrated that these US supplied weapons do actually make their way to al-Qaeda.

    • Nick

      That was a anti-tank missile, not MANPADS.

      • Skagos

        He said “ready for take-off”. Surely you can google what that means.

  • Pave Way IV

    It’s not so much that the pilot ‘doged’ the ATGM but that the operator unintentionally steered the missile into the rocks while trying to follow the chopper as it dipped below the crest of the hill. It looks like the missile was following a good line to the chopper just before and as it took off, but the jerky hard left designator correction at the very end and the missile’s spiraling follow put it too close to avoid smacking into the clump of rocks.

    On closer examination of the video, you can see where they probably dropped a few frames of video immediately prior to the impact. The explosion seems to happen behind (to the right of) where the ATGM should be at that moment. Kurd media, so it’s anyone’s’ guess as to what really happened.
