U.S. Forces Block Russian Patrol In Northeast Syria (Videos)

Donate

On January 18, U.S. forces blocked a convoy of the Russian Military Police in the northeastern countryside of Syria’s al-Hasakah.

The Hawar News Agency (ANHA) said that Russian forces were conducting a “routine patrol” near the city of Rmelan when they were intercepted by a U.S. unit that blocked the road with at least two armored vehicles.

“Russian patrols usually take dirt roads in the area north of the district of Karakiye [Rmelan] along the Turkish border, but because of the rain and the closure of dirt roads, the Russian patrol was forced to take the main road between Karaky and Dirk, However, an American patrol intercepted its path and prevented it from moving on, which halted the traffic on the public road,” the ANHA’s reporter said, explaining the causes of the incident.

The ANHA claiemd that officials of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) intervened to prevent any tension and de-escalated the situation. However, it is unclear how the group that cannot even protect itself from the limited Turkish military operation can influence US or Russian actions in the region by ‘intervening’ in the situation.

Following the incident, the Russian patrol returned to the city of Qamishli, while U.S. forces reopened the road. Most likely, Russian forces just received an order to not move further into the area in order to avoid additional tensions with US forces deployed there. The presence of both US and Russian forces in the same area requires a rational flexibility of approaches if they want to avoid additional tensions on the ground.

A day earlier, a Russian convoy passed through a U.S. checkpoint in northern al-Hasakah without any problems.

Russia and the U.S. maintain a communication channel to prevent any contact between their forces in Syria. However, the coordination between the two side remains very limited as for now, mainly due to political reasons.

    The Russians should just barge through any illegal Yankee checkpoints and if the Yid/Yanks cause any problems, the Russians should just kill the invading f*ckers. There… fixed it!

      • Tommy Jensen

        You cant do that to an American. Its against the International usury rules of free navigation in International waterways.

        • BMWA1

          No, just the escalation potential is high. There have been 100’s of patrols since autumn and a couple incidents like this. A-h@les will act according to character.

      • Bobby Twoshoes

        Could you imagine Yanks passing on a target because civilians were around? This brings back fond memories, thanks for posting. I must say I preferred the sniper compilations though, nothing like seeing actual American bodies drop.

        • Issam

          I don’t have to imagine, they are killing civilians routinely in Afghanistan/Yemen

          • Zionism = EVIL

            In Syria alone due to indiscriminate bombing and night raids on civilians the Americunts and NATO occupation forces have killed over 7,367 civilians since 2011 according to Human Rights Watch.

          • Issam

            These US terrorists wipe out Raqqa with everyone in it, and they have the audacity to judge the SAA.
            “Hundreds of civilians were killed and thousands wounded by air strikes described as disproportionate and indiscriminate, the US was responsible for more than 90 percent of attacks”- Amnesty International

          • Lee Vanderheiden

            What they did to Raqqa was a war crime. Reminds me of the laying to waste the Americans did to North Korea. No respect for human life or people’s homes.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Also the City of Hue in Vietnam, the savage losers destroyed even the historically protected ancient citadel and temples.

          • Bobby Twoshoes

            Not just in the Middle East mind you, spare a thought for the Cubans, Nicaraguans, Bolivians and Venezuelans etc… They have nobody like Russia or Iran nearby to moderate the crazed Yankee bloodlust.

      • Jacob Wohl

        Deadly terrorist acts against US troops like these shown in the video is exactly why Suleimani was eliminated by the US Airforce. Now get over it!

        • Issam

          These are Iraqis dumb-dumb

        • Lee Vanderheiden

          Resistance to occupiers is a necessary outgrowth. In Algeria where it all began against the French, the people will do whatever they can to rid themselves of the yoke of foreigners. Now get over this.

    • Raptar Driver

      Not while Putin the mole is in charge.

    • Pave Way IV

      Traffic jams? Really, CENTCOM? Is that all you got left for clinging to your failed Syrian partition plan?

    • Jacob Wohl

      barge through and be annihilated by MRAP 50 cal machine guns. Go ahead, genius.

        ha ha ha – yeah right, jew boy!

          • The Man

            ha ha ha – yeah, right again, jew boy 😂😂😂

      • Lee Vanderheiden

        Wouldn’t happen.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Not as long as Putin works with his Americunt and Zionist “partners” at the detriment of the Russian military. That is why a real native Russian nationalist like Shoigu has been sidelined from any policy making.

      • Lee Vanderheiden

        Shiogu is right where he needs to be, in the military defending Russia, a hardliner. This gives the frontmen the freedom of negotiation and diplomacy. Shiogu is no politician nor diplomat.

    • The Man

      Spot the Jew (clue, check the downvote!!!) ha ha ha

  • Assad must stay

    Russia should have just forced and blasted its way through, they are there legally while US IS NOT!!!!

    • Raptar Driver

      The Russians are controlled through Putin who is a Western/Jewish infiltrator.

      • World_Eye

        Jewish maybe but WESTERN LOL

        • Raptar Driver

          Who controls the West?

      • Assad must stay

        im beginning to think maybe you are right

      • Zionism = EVIL

        That is the sad FACT, Jews have infested every orifice in Russia.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Why do think a nationalist hardliner like Shoigu was not appointed the PM or given a senior position is Putin’s life long cabinet?

        • Xoli Xoli

          Shoigu is a very strong Russian arm forces leader just as Soleimani who can outmaneuver and stand up aggressively against its troops threat.This alone deeply run against Putin and Lavrov give and take agendas particular from USA,France,Germany,Turkey and Saudis.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            100% factual. You have a good grasp of reality my friend.

        • Lee Vanderheiden

          Shoigu is getting on in age. I believe there was sentiment that his retirement too is coming up.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            True, he should have been the deputy at the new national security council, rather than the oligarchs corrupt weak tool Medvedev. Shoigu is one of better recent Russian generals and a real nationalist.

          • Lee Vanderheiden

            Wouldn’t that have been so nice!

          • Zionism = EVIL

            And logical, he is one of the few Russian fighting generals with real C3I experience in real combat from Georgia, Crimea and extensive operations in Syria. In any other normal country such experience and dedication would have been honored. However, Russia has history of mistreating its most able generals as Zhukov and many others from the great patriotic war found out during the Stalin era.

      • Xoli Xoli

        Just as KGB was destroyed by USA CIA and Israel M16 during Putin weak corupt leadership.Not only is Putin piss off with USA as their have betrayed him and destroyed USSR.But out of shame he block the truth to be hidden forever and therefore he pleases USANATO and Israel.Even the downing of Russian jets were compensated confirmed by Turkey and Saudi on behalf of Israel as their have gift for Putin.

    • World_Eye

      Yes maybe, but Russians don’t do nothing without ORDERS, and those US clowns received an ORDER to stop the Russian convoy. You get it now!

      • Assad must stay

        well then they should have gotten those ORDERS!

        Trump Called His Generals a ‘Bunch of Dopes and Babies’ in a Fit of Rage

        The president reportedly called Afghanistan a “loser war,” and told
        his military leaders: “You’re all losers… You don’t know how to win
        anymore… I want to win… We don’t win any wars anymore… We spend $7
        trillion, everybody else got the oil and we’re not winning anymore.”
        It’s reported that Trump was so angry at this point that he wasn’t
        breathing properly.

        In his most incendiary comment, Trump—a man
        who, remember, managed to get out of military duty in Vietnam due to a
        supposed bone-spur problem—is said to have told the assembled forces, “I
        wouldn’t go to war with you people… You’re a bunch of dopes and
        babies.

        • Lee Vanderheiden

          Time to put Trump on the front line in Syria or Iraq, preferably the border in between those two countries.

      • Lee Vanderheiden

        At this microlevel I have to disagree with you, unless it was general policy not to engage the Americans.

    • Jacob Wohl

      And be decimated by US Marine MRAP 50 caliber machine guns. Great thinking, Sherlock.

      • Superfly

        Convicted Jew fraud lol

      • Lee Vanderheiden

        The Americans wouldn’t have used the guns. The Russians couldn’t defend themselves and lots of cameras around. If they had fired on the Russians it would have been akin to murdering Soleimani. Putin has been very clear, to Israel in Syria, you kill our men and you will pay. If Americas killed defenceless (or any) Soviet soldiers in Syria, the same would be true for them.

      • Wayne Nicholson

        So naive.

        MRAP’s armed with 50 cal taking on BRT-80’s armed with 30mm auto cannons? I wonder who would come out on top of that exchange? Don’t you think there’s a reason those 50 cal’s are pointed up and away from the Russian vehicles?

        Besides that you have to account for the Russian attack helicopters that always accompany the Russian patrols as well as the US drone watching overhead.

        I guess that’s why you’re a keyboard warrior and not a real one …. Shylock.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Russia needs to re-evaluate its policy of appeasing the Americunt arseholes and get serious about supporting the resistance in the region or this CIA/Zionist terror war in the region will never end and will reach Russia itself, which is the Amerocunts ultimate goal. Americunts are cowards and if only a couple of their MRAPS blow up, they will cut a run back crying like in Somalia. So far there is no resistance and that has emboldened the cowards.

      • Assad must stay

        agree hundred percent, why are they so scared to resist?

        • Zionism = EVIL

          As I mentioned before, one of the primary reasons is Putin’s desire to appease the Americunts and keep Russian troop commitment to a very small level. One should not forget that Russia is not the USSR and is quite disunited at home with Jews, Americunts and NATO poodles pressing at its heels. I have always believed that Russia is in Syria to protect its only foreign bases and also the Zionist regime. There is a good analysis in Al-Monitor that Russians were not too displeased to see General Soleimani assassinated as he had made great progress in uniting the resistance in both Syria and Iran, weakening Russian influence.

          • Assad must stay

            yea, i feel both russia and iran need a serious shake-up in their governments, hopefully one that gives them a much bigger set of balls in their dealings with the US and its allies

          • Zionism = EVIL

            To be perfectly honest as always, both the Russians and Iranian governments are factionalized and only interested in hanging on to power and the Americunts have found that it is easy to bribe and divide the Arabs, especially they have focused on planting the Kurdish cancer in the region, just like the Brits planted the Zionist posion, and same as the Sunnis and Maronite are now doing in Lebanon. I think Soleimani despite Iranian limitations had the strategic vision and was making progress and and his assassination suited all. Why would Iran have had its best and most able general traveling into the Iraqi snake pit, knowing that it is full of spies, traitors and in any case occupied by Americunts. Now watch the Americunts destabilize Lebanon to weaken Hezbollah, the only thing that is preventing that is demographics.

          • Assad must stay

            they must be stopped, Evil!

          • Zionism = EVIL

            I firmly believe that eventually there will be as evil can not last forever. But for now there will be a lot more instability in the region as Turkey, Saudis, Emiratis, Egypt and most of the corrupt leadership is working against the interests in the region and selling out there own people. The Iranian theocracy overestimated its own capability and has bizarre policies like being punished for 40 years and making life hell for their own people by the sanctions for a nuclear program that is not allowed to make nuclear weapons and also the recent dud missile strike on Americunt bases with warning defeated the whole strategic purpose. Now the Americunts and Zionists will double down on destabilizing Iran and for the first time I believe that there is a high probability of a direct attack on Iran and open regime change. Iranian policy is now in total disarray.

          • Assad must stay

            i just hope things change for the better for Iran and US and zionism is stopped

          • Lee Vanderheiden

            Like the Russians and the Chinese, the Iranians want to demonstrate they are not the evil doers the Americans claim they are. This is a weakness the Machiavellian Princes of this world will capitalize on.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            But the Americunts are totally untrustworthy and ruthless and you can’t play with Marques of Queensbury rules. However, as history as shown that they are more or less paper tigers and now their military is a very soft mercenary force and can not take even minuscule casualties. They will not fight much in Syria as it has limited opportunities for economic plunder and less value, but will try to hang on to Iraq by using the Kurds and Daesh Sunnis to destabilize the situation. The Americunt achilles heel is Syria, if the resistance inflicts pain, they are gone fast.

          • Lee Vanderheiden

            With respect to sending Soleimani into the snake pit. I think Iran wanted to believe that in killing Soleimani the West would open up a can of worms which they weren’t prepared to do, as of yet. Trump, the Supreme Idiot Impulsive, showed Iran he has no compunction especially when it comes to pleasing his masters. Lebanon had intelligence which should have warned Iran not to do this.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            I agree, a lot of mistakes have been made and it is never too late. The Iranians need a bolder policy and a better political leadership. Khamenei needs to stop micro managing too and let the Sepah decide at the operational level.

          • vann7

            it was not really worth of it..starting a major incident for who travels where.. they could have easily go off road and continue advancing.. but they felt there was not really a need to scale tensions over so little … it was reported some time ago ,that russian soldiers blocked american troops too.. when they tried to enter their abandoned bases which russia now occupy.. so this is probably they trying to draw lines .. in zones that really does not matter at all for russia .. they will probably try again in another time..

          • Assad must stay

            it doesnt seem to be working, their long term policy

      • Xoli Xoli

        Very true all attempts by Russia forces to suppress terrorist are block by USA and Turkey.USA has Russia knee deep under severe sanctions. Yet Putin pleases and side with them.Calling useless ceasefires which always result in mass killings of Syrian forces.Not only benefits from weapon testing as advise by Trump. The war plus sanction against Russia has impacted on Russia economy. There is no time to play mr.cool boy it is time to face USA aggression.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Good comment, Russia is playing all sides with aim of pleasing the Americunts. Putin’s only interest is to hang on to power and play to domestic audience. Russia wants a weak Syria dependent on it. In the end the Syrians will have to decide whether to resist or not. At this stage the SAA is not in a position to fight on multiple fronts after the assassination of General Soleimani. In the end it will be for Syria, Iraqis and Iranians along with the axis of resistance to decide if they want to initiate serious resistance. Russia will not help.

          • Lee Vanderheiden

            Good analysis.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Thanks, some of us seniors with real experience have to keep things in realistic perspective.

          • Nexusfast123

            Also escalation of an incident could generate is own momentum that might be difficult to control.

      • Lee Vanderheiden

        I agree. What is with this appeasement happening with the Russians? It only emboldens the Americans who think they rule the world and are justified doing whatever the hell they want to do.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Partly the Iranians are also at fault. After the liberation of Aleppo they should have mobilized all resources and gone after the headchoppers despite Putin making deals. When you have vacillating policies and conflicting interests, you are bound to end up with goulash. It is never too late and after the killing of Soleimani all parties in the Axis of Resistance have to come up with new and more bold alternatives, the old appeasement model has gotten us to this impasse. Another problem I see coming is that the old fuck Sistani is dying and there will be total vacuum in Najaf and it is golden opportunity for Iranians to fill that. The Americunts will use that to totally destroy Iraq and occupy it forever until OIL runs out.

      • Putin is playing it safe and wise. USA has more military bases in the region, than in Texas. Everyone has to tiptoe around the yanki leviathan, for now at least.

    • Ronald

      They might have simply gone around them, avoiding the use of force.
      They are not cars, they are not restricted to roads. It does set a dangerous precedent.

      • Assad must stay

        a very dangerous precedent!!!!

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Putin is micro-managing Syria and the Russian military is not allowed even local operational flexibility. There is lot of frustration in the Russian command in Syria and most have been replaced with Putin loyalists. Shoigu has been sidelined.

        • Rose Morgan

          Given the potential of major conflict that might arise from a flash
          point between US and Russia in Syria, I think Putin would be failing in his duty to both his troops in Syria and his people if he didn’t ‘micromanage’ the interaction between US and Russia in Syria.

      • vann7

        they will return again… for sure the road was not that important.. not worth of starting a conflict about it. If memory don’t fail , i think russia blocked american troops too ,when trying to re-enter again the bases they abandoned.. and that now russia took.. . so looks like they doing the same..

    The longer the US keeps the conflict going in Syria, the longer Russian forces will have a combat zone in which to test their new and up-coming equipment. What better target practice than US/nato/isreali/suadi sponsored terrorists.

    • <>

      And you think we don’t test the Russian equipment in Syria? we can spy on everything they do. I wish the S-300 would shoot once on IAF jets, it will be destroyed in a short time. Not a good PR for Russia.

        Don’t fret zionist boy. That is to come. This is just the hors d’oeuvre.`Once Syria rids itself of parasites you may just get your wish answered. There are quite a few neighbours who have a bone to pick with the isreali regime, or hadn’t you noticed.

          No medication mate, just military experience. Right now Russia is keeping the balance in Syria, atleast when it comes to Israel and Iran. If they let the SAA use the S-300 in order to protect Iranian assets, then the Syrian army will be hit hard aswell. Notice that most of our strikes are against Iran, we only attack the SAA when they use the AD systems in order to help their Persian friends.

      • LR captain

        you’re gonna have wait for gantz to do that cause all bibi will send is drones which are not worth while for s-300 to shoot down.

        Any art craft shot down by s-300 will be major PR blow for the US especially if its a F-35. Cause i don’t buy the “it flew into flock of birds and feathers got in the engine” story. As most modern planes have air filters and screens to prevent that. Plus the the F-35 was tested and declared bird proof before Israeli bought them.

        If the S-300 is gonna be destroyed won’t be by fighters or missiles. It will be by loitering munitions, if the that drone is left auto guide itself as most western drone do using GPS to get into an area then Using small short radar bursts emitted once every 5-7 minutes to find its target.

        Though I don’t think that will happen as the IDF may use a drone that tracks income radar waves. if the SAA is smart about they can trick the IDF loitering drone into attacking another high powered radar from lesser AA system.

        The only other way loosing an actual fighter and engage the system to take it out with stand off munitions. The SAA has had a lot of practice repelling 1-4 missiles thanks to bib’s under strength attacks.

        • Jacob Wohl

          Are you serious right now? The Butcher Regime only has 4 S-300 launchers deployed. The others are apparently not in service and held in weapons storage according to a report I read on DebkaFile. And those S-300 are under the control of the big bad Russkies who have an agreement with the IDF to allow them to destroy all Iranians in site. Now get lost, and get over it :-]

          • LR captain

            really you straight up insulting me yet im telling you how some thing could be done. stating it in a rational way,

            your comment has no water and only adds fuel to my point as my explanation only inolved only one battery. not four.

            placing one to or two pansirs can easily block missile drones and rockets.
            the IDF only chance will at dealing with an S-300 is by loitering munitions that can be guiding by remote 2 hours after being deployed.
            @The_Angry_Jew:disqus and he is telling me to get lost yet im still helping him indirectly as he may use this information in later argument with some else.

    • Wayne Nicholson

      The USA has been trying to get Russia to respond to provocations since day one. They shot down Russian aircraft, killed Russian mercs, fired 2 large salvos of TLAM’s Russia’s way and they Russians kept their eyes on the prize. They act like disciplined professionals.

      This is just keeping Russians from rolling down a road …. big deal … it’s juvenile. If you want to know who’s winning in Syria go back to 2015 and look at Syria then compared to Syria now.

      Does Syria hold more ground now than they did in 2015?

      Are the US backed “moderate rebels” gaining ground or losing ground?

      Does the USA have air superiority over Syria any more?

      Is the USA gaining influence in the ME or losing influence?

      Russia will avoid armed conflict with the USA even if attacked. I don’t believe combat with the Americans will benefit Russians in the least, in fact it risks a much larger war and the destruction of both the USA and Russia. Neither side wins if they are both living in holes in the ground in a nuclear wasteland. Americans are foolhardy,

    • Lee Vanderheiden

      I don’t believe that is the Russian intention. Nor would Assad have anything to do with that. Russia’s state purpose is to help Syria fight ISIS, not America nor Israel or Turkey for that matter. However, if provoked see Russia become the Bear. They are not stationing warships along the coast of Syria for no reason.

It seems the Angry Emoji uses plastic like the rest of us. And lots of it.

    • Pave Way IV

      Even the Houthis are afraid of that Greta thing. She’s scary as hell.

  • Azriel Herskowitz

    Russkies backing off due to superior American firepower! Don’t forget who the real superpower is Russia!

    • Stinky Man

      The real super power can launch HYPERSONIC weapons on it’s enemies.
      Hint, the US has no Hypersonic weapons nor a defense against Hypersonic weapons.
      Keep telling yourself “Your the smartest, strongest and the best looking kid around” because no one else is going to tell you that.

      • Lee Vanderheiden

        oh stinky man, well said!

      Sometimes SAA have stopped US convoy in Hasaka..and they returned to US bases…

    • Rhetorius

      HAHAHAHAHAHA, get serious, will you?
      You know you don’t believe this palaver yourself

    • Daily Beatings

      Russia pulled back because they’re not that stupid to start World War III.

      • Jacob Wohl

        Russkies pulled back because they had no chance against MRAP vehicles with 50 caliber machine guns. They’d be shredded into minced meat instantly. Our US Marines would annihilate them all at close range without a single air support request.

        • Daily Beatings

          … and start World War III. You are a special kind of stupid.

        • JPS

          The Houthis have no problems with your POS International Harvester “MRAP” Trucks that they let rot in Afghanistan because they’re nothing but useless pork barrel for congressional districts. The Russians have never considered how to deal with 50 caliber machine guns on clunky half cludged together pieces of shit. Yeah, right. Every functioning airbase the US has would be destroyed in short order in the event of a war.

    • Wayne Nicholson

      The USA would risk the lives of US servicemen to keep Russians from driving down a strip of asphalt in a god forsaken desert in the middle of nowhere …. and that makes them a “real superpower”

      Just who are the smart ones in this scenario? Those that risk their lives holding onto that pavement or those who choose to go down another road and avoid conflict?

    • Lee Vanderheiden

      Does it matter when Russia has nukes too?

  • Wayne Nicholson

    Simply dick wagging. All they accomplished was holding up a bunch of Syrians while they measured up.
    Imagine if you were trying to get to work in the morning and 2 groups of foreigners held up traffic while they argued over whose right it was to go down YOUR road. Childish.

  • Z.P.

    Showing off their very small pecker like that in public, doesn’t create reputation of the “super power”.
    100 Yenks amassed on the road to make the statement : “It is us who command “will not change thing to the fact that US are on their way OUT of the Syria and nothing will change that to happen!

  • World_Eye

    Nasty Neocons, hello you are on Syrian land, where invited RUSSIAN military is invited to patrol. GTFO of the way. This is provocative they have received orders to do this shit. Nasty people fuck you Trump fuck your Zionists POMPEO suck each others dicks. What should happen here is SAA to intervene and that BTR to be pointed at those stupid low IQ Neocons pussies.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Russia as a invited guest reserved the right of Movement,flight and nevigation in national borders of Syria.

    Not like USANATO which transgress international rules and claim freedom of nevigation in South China Sea.

    • Lee Vanderheiden

      Hubris will be their downfall.

    The answer is ram the bloody USA scrap which block in the high way.

  • Raptar Driver

    This shows clearly who is in control.

  • Tommy Jensen

    Russians seem to be on a secret mission here……..well, not so secret any more……………..LOL.

  • Jacob Wohl

    Funny how US armored trucks are huge compared to the tiny Russkie vehicles. It goes to show you how large of a superpower USA is compared to the wimpy Russians.

    USA is not scared to flatten all Russkie bases inside SDF-controlled Syria. USAF already blew 400 Russkie mercenaries to smithereens during the Battle of Kusham. They are not scared to go head to head with the outdated, un-skilled Russian Military and do it all over again.

    • Willing Conscience (The Truths

      LOL, the Russians are just conducting security patrols not launching an offensive, and unlike the US they don’t use their heavy armor to conduct patrols, the US has to though, and that’s because they have to protect themselves from the civilian population, not just Isis, LOL.
      LOL, Trump just announced to the media that the US would have hypersonic missiles soon, the Russians and Chinese announced they had them 2 years ago, LOL, who’s outdated and unskilled did you say.
      LOL, Trump just had the perfect excuse to go to war against Iran but he didn’t, he backed down instead, and that’s despite the fact it was him that threw the first punch, so that swift Iranian counterpunch must have made him see a few stars when they delivered it, LOL.
      But you say the US isn’t scared of a fight with Russia, so I’ll ask you this, if they’re too scared to attack Iran what makes them any braver when it comes to fighting Russia, it’s not like the Iranians have nukes or massive manpower, world leading military technology and modern equipment [not much], but the Ruskies do, so it seems to me that if the US wasn’t willing to go to war with Iran after Iran humiliated them so publicly, that there’d be even less chance they’d want to start a war with Russia.
      But you could be right, the US might want to test the new hypersonic anti ship missiles the Ruskies engineered specifically to take out US carriers, they might want to find out for sure whether or not they’re as effective as the Ruskies say they are, and the S-400’s.

      • Jake321

        Why do fools like you pine for WW3?

        • Willing Conscience (The Truths

          I’d like to know what I said that makes you think I’m eager to see WW3 start, if it’s this part of my comment,
          “But you could be right, the US might want to test the new hypersonic anti ship missiles the Ruskies engineered specifically to take out US carriers, they might want to find out for sure whether or not they’re as effective as the Ruskies say they are, and the S-400’s”,
          I was being sarcastic, and it should’ve been obvious by the first part of my comment, so if anyone’s a fool it’s you, read more carefully, or better still translate it into your own language so you can understand thing better.

          • Jake321

            Oh, stop playing stupid. It’s clear you are pining for a test of militaries between the US and Russia. And it’s clear you think it’s some kind of loss for the US that Trump didn’t flatten Iran. And given how you’re always most only concerned with Russian lives, likely it’s you not posting in their native language, Igor.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            It’s clear to you I’m “pining for a test of militaries”, but it’s not clear to me, and most people think I’m pro US but you think I’m actually a Russian, and that I also want to see the US flatten Iran, how do you get all that from what I just said?
            If you can find anything in my previous comments where I suggest Trump wants to go to war against anyone at all, and that I’m also encouraging it, you’ve also misread that comment too, I continually call Trump a peace dove and support him because of his military non interventionist policies, not because he’s a warhawk.
            Are you sure you responded to the right comment, you seem to be talking about a different subject to the one I was making fun of.

  • Jacob Wohl

    Superpower vs Regional Power. Superpower wins. Now go home back to VodkaLand, unskilled Russkies.

    • Lee Vanderheiden

      You are a special kind of shit disturber, aren’t you? No diplomacy points for you!

      • Jake321

        This is Southfront, an Alt Right Kremlin mouthpiece that likes the Daily Stormer type guys. So it’s kind of when in Rome do as the Romans do.

        • Cornelius

          Hey! There are Syrian types too. Don’t be a dick. We can be diplomatic. What are you saying we can’t be diplomatic? We LOOVE the Muslims! What are you talking about!?

  • Damien C

    Russia behaving like professional peace-keepers and USA troops behaving like an amateur militia!
    The U.S stock in the field of international respect is plummeting so low that getting back up to the dizzy heights of the gutter will be a major feat for them.

  • Russia most definitely must take aggressive steps in liberating Syria; Syria must have a restricted airspace too; stop our U.S. military from using aircraft in Syrian airspace.

    https://youtu.be/DyzGWOgjqD8

    Iraq has evicted our troops out of Iraq; U.S. won’t leave on their own; so Iraq will have to take aggressive action.

    Jan. 18, 2020 – Spokesman for the commander-in-chief of the Iraqi Armed Forces, Abdul-Karim Khalaf:
    Iraq will not have any financial & political commitment, as a result of these forces’ withdrawal from its territories;
    Iraqi authorities issued an order on 3 Jan. 3, 2020 prohibiting the flight of aircrafts of the international coalition in its airspace;
    U.S. aircrafts in Qa’im, caused the deaths & injuries of 90 victims from the support forces of the Iraqi army.

    Send our U.S. troops home now.

      LOL…you’re a very bad fake. Even your fake and silly website is in poor English while you claim English is all you speak.

  • Lee Vanderheiden

    The hutspah of these Americans. Deliberately blocking all traffic from going to where they need to go just so they can block the Russians. I would have provoked something if I was the Russians. Would the Americans have fired on the Russians? I don’t think so.

    • Z.P.

      Russian Army are not cowboys.
      They follow their orders.
      And their orders are to answer with force only if attacked first while they patrolling that area.
      If they wanted to show off the real power they could have called few attack choppers to demonstrate that power.
      But all that would never go further from the usual story ; whose d**k is bigger…
      Since Russians work on tight budget they don’t waste their money on that.
      US are just desperate bully and very bad loser.
      The best thing is to ignore them as much as possible.

  • Arch Bungle

    Russia is conducting a careful surgical operation in order to save the life of the Syrian patient. Yes, it seeks like it would be nice to blow gaping holes wherever US bases are, like cutting out a cancer. But Putin has to take care to do so carefully in order to protect the patient.
    Putins entire approach in Syria can be understood in terms of this analogy: Careful removal of a cancerous infection over time, done to prevent harmful bleeding or further damage. Tolerating the infection as far as possible while slowly removing it.
