    ISRAHELL IS CANCER OF THE WORLD

        Kill the kids too ?

        • dontlietome

          Why not, the IDF kill kids everyday with the greatest of glee………pregnant mothers are also a favourite target, so much so, that the IDF sell T-Shirts that extole “1 shot, 2 kills”. Now tell me sir, how would you deal with this cancer that lives amongst you ?

          • YOoo

            Islam doesn’t teach this type of retaliation. Islam teaches self defense and targeting the ones responsible. Kids should never be a target. Sorry.

          • dontlietome

            If Christianity had practised “turning the other cheek” as Christ would urge us, we would no longer exist. If I am confronted by evil in its purest form, I will do all in my might to destroy it. “The Jews” are the spawn of satan, there is nothing good about them, for those who have read the Talmud, the only book which every jew pays homage too and lives his life by, you will quickly realise that all other life forms referred to by it, are regarded as sub-species.Since time began, and the Jews have plagued this planet, They collectively have been responsible for countless millions, maybe billions, of deaths over the past thousands of years. Today,we ( humanity) stands on a precipice, created by the Jews, the spawn of satan, who sit in most of the positions of control, and their wish is usher in a single government whose job it will be to massacre mankind…………..thats is of course the GOYIM-mankind. Their wish is to reduce the numbers from 7.6 billion, to just 500 million. The only role those 500 million are to fill is as slaves to an elite. So in answer to your reply to me, I will not let the teachings of Christianity or Islam get in my way to do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to hinder the Jews and their evil aims.

    Hezbollah shows that you can defend against israel. Now, Syria shows it with very old weapons and a catastrophic situation in SYria. Even, people in Gaza show it when they manage to kill 60+ idf soldiers in few days when israel did a ground op in Gaza.

    Never give up on your rights.

    It’s not people fault if israelis have been invented in a book and have no lands. Even Harry Potter have no land.

    • Eskandar Black

      the upgrades S200ve- is not an old weapon. when staffed by trained people it is still very much deadly to 4th+ gen fighters. Hezbollah can not field such systems.

      • Serious

        Hezbollah are very efficient and smart. Give them S-300 and no one will dare to cross Lebanon airspace. And they will even help Syria.

        israel is trying to destroy every research facilities in Syria because what israel is very worried about is about smart people. That’s why israel and Americans love stupid sunnis.

        And even thanks to sunnis and Pussin, now, Syria has no more chemical weapons.

        • Wolfgang Wolf

          some pantsir-S are good enough to shoot out smart bombs and missiles… just needs a dense network of radar, communication, etc…

          • Eskandar Black

            these things work as a component of a larger system. If you set up your pantsir -S systems, i can just shell you with regular artillery. you have to have some means of responding. the longer range systems like the S-400 are very large and very expensive, and not necessary to a force like hezbollah.

        • Eskandar Black

          Chemical weapons were a trap that would have been used to topple Assad government. Removing them was necessary because US was headed on a collision course with the russian armed forces. Russia would be faced with a choice to stand by and watch us destroy Syria, like it did LIbya, Iraq, Serbia. The fact is at the time the decision was made it was 2013, I think maybe you forgot what the map looked like in 2013. Many CW facilities were in the hands of jihadists who were openly using the munitions against Syrian and others and blaming Assad. Russians knew that the CIA was planning Khan Sheykhoun and aside from the incompetence of the idiots who staged that pretextual incident to justify a massive attack on a non US friendly state. This is commonly done whenever there is a new incoming president, before he has really had a chance to get his people in place who would otherwise veto these typos of projects.

          • Serious

            Assad didn’t do it. So, no need to remove chemical weapons. It was a trap. Invite UN and proof it’s not Assad. Now, Syria have no defense system and no chemical weapons.

          • Eskandar Black

            You think Assad would have been able to prove his case except for the fact that he didnt have chemical weapons? It was the missing elephant from the room that stopped a war, twice.

          • Serious

            Yes.The UN even didn’t want to visit the so-called chemical attack site because they knew Assad didn’t do it.

          • Eskandar Black

            you are wrong, He would have been accused. There would be a CNN investigation. marines would land, Jihadistan would have been in place of syria.

          • Serious

            That’s fiction. Why are you afraid ?

          • Eskandar Black

            Fiction is your delusional idea that removing chemical weapons from Syria was anything but masterful stroke of genius by Putin.

          • Serious

            It was a trap created by israel and USA, done by sunnis and approved by Pussin.

            If I do nothing, I will not pay.

          • Eskandar Black

            none the less, you propose walking into the trap? thats dumb.

          • Serious

            I propose saying. “I did nothing. Sunnis and israel and USA did it so that I throw away my chemical weapons and become defendless”. Add, “Go f…ck yourself, terrorists c..ts”.

          • Eskandar Black

            I thought you were serious

          • Serious

            It’s serious. You are just afraid of the void like usual. You are afraid of fairytales.

            And… Where’s the elephant???

          • Eskandar Black

            The elephant was destroyed by the united nations, so its difficult to blame the elephant(CW weapons syria had in 2013) since the only people with elephants get their CW from libya

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The UN stated in 2013 it was likely that the rebels had full access as they have the 2 sites not accounted for in weapons. The translator the UN was recommended by the US was the leader of the group who held the water control in Daraa a Jaish al fateh Communications wing officer named Kassem Eid, they needed a fluent German speaker. The US is the last nation should be talking about chemical weapons, got rid of nearly 10% and stopped after Russia had gotten rid of theirs.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Yes, even General Mattis has just publicly said that there has been no proof that President Assad’s forces used sarin gas.

          • Graeme Rymill

            That’s what Newsweek seems to think. In fact he said the exact opposite:

            Q: Can you talk a little bit about the chemical weapons that were — the State Department was talking about just a little bit yesterday, that mentioned chlorine gas? Is this something you’re seeing that’s been weaponized or – just give us a sense.

            SEC. MATTIS: It has.

            Q: It has. Okay.

            SEC. MATTIS: It has. We are more — even more concerned about the possibility of sarin use, the likelihood of sarin use, and we’re looking for the evidence. And so that’s about all the more I can say about it right now, but we are on the record, and you all have seen how we reacted to that, so they’d be ill-advised to go back to violating the chemical convention.

            A few minutes later a follow up question is asked about sarin. It is only if you ignore the above and take Mattis’ later reply totally out of context that you can claim he said there was never any evidence re sarin.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Can you say why and what military advantage the SAA would have in using very small amounts of any form of gas in the conflict Graeme ?

            Can you say why and what military advantage the US proxy terrorists and the USA/Israel would have with any False Flag chemical attacks in the conflict Graeme ?

          • Graeme Rymill

            All I can say is that Mathis didn’t in fact say what you claim he said.

          • John Whitehot

            No, Florian said:

            “Yes, even General Mattis has just publicly said that there has been no proof that President Assad’s forces used sarin gas.”

            The exact opposite would be that Mattis affirmed that he has evidence that Assad used chemical weapons; Mattis instead has said “they are looking for evidence”. Which means, that they DON’T have any evidence.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Ok.
            An answer to my questions to you would be appreciated though Graeeme.

          • Graeme Rymill

            You have asked 2 questions that I don’t have answers for. On the face of it Syria seems to gain little militarily from these alleged attacks. Perhaps the motivation is political gain and/or psychological? My inability to adequately account for it doesn’t prove it never happened. The Syrian government did in the recent past have chemical stockpiles. That is undisputed. They presumably did so because the chemical weapons could be used to advantage if required.

            As to a US/Israel false flag operation if that is what happened then little or no military advantage has accrued. The Syrian and Russian air campaign goes on successfully. Assad remains in power. If this was a false flag intended to provide a rationale for attacking Syria I would have expected a much more far reaching attack. Attacking one air base and destroying a handful of planes seems pointless. Unless of course it actually was what the US says it was: a warning to Syria to cease and desist using sarin.

            The arguments regarding the actual sarin attack, both for and against, are way too technical for me to assess with any confidence.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Thank you.

            I would add that there still are indeed two chemical weapon storage depots in Syria today , BUT BOTH of them are in Idlib where Al Nusra and other brands of terrorists have had control since before the destruction process was initiated in ALL the SAA controlled areas.

            UN access to the terrorist controlled Idlib depots has been denied, despite some of the groups being loyal to Turkey , that is of course a NATO member.

            I would also like to see the US and Israel destroying all of their current stocks of chemical and biological weapons Graeme.

          • John Whitehot

            can you even read?

            In which part Mattis says explicitly he has proof? Because the fact that “you see how we reacted” does not make Sarin any truer than before, or are we implying that from now on we’ll take the reactions of the US as evidence that Syria used chemicals?

          • Graeme Rymill

            I can see thus is an emotional issue for you John. You seem unable to use any comprehension skills to assess these comments. Take a deep breath and re-read it several times. His meaning is crystal clear even if somewhat awkwardly expressed. This is common in verbal communication. Mattis is not submitting a written report to Congress or the U.N. He is speaking in an informal manner, off the cuff, to reporters and journalists. The precision you might be looking for i.e. Mattis saying the exact words “there is evidence” isn’t there. Even so it is clear his comments about evidence don’t encompass the sarin attack that triggered the US cruise missile assault on the Syrian air base.

          • John Whitehot

            “Mattis is not submitting a written report to Congress or the U.N. He is speaking in an informal manner”

            Irrelevant, it’s you that chose to quote him. It does not moreover mean that his words can be interpreted at will.

            “The precision you might be looking for i.e. Mattis saying the exact words “there is evidence” isn’t there. Even so it is clear his comments about evidence don’t encompass the sarin attack that triggered the US cruise missile assault on the Syrian air base”

            Sophism in which you hope to hide your initial lie.

            You previously stated that Mattis said the “contrary” of what Florian had affirmed.

            In fact, Mattis said not the contrary, but exactly what Florian affirmed:”There is no evidence of sarin attacks” otherwise Mattis would not had said that “they are looking for evidence”, he would had said that “they have evidence”.

            In regards to reread the statement, I suggest you do it instead, because you’re literally inventing new senses to the words spoken by Mattis, interpreting them to suit the significance you need to convey.

            Mattis statement is not “awkward”, and what is “crystal clear” is the phrase “we are looking for evidence”. Which for normal people who just listen at spoken words, it’s much closer to stating that “there is no evidence” than “there is evidence”.

            And in regards to emotional issues, yes, I have an issue with rattlesnakes lying their way up their ranks, with the only objective to fulfill to generate more war and suffering, when there is people fighting and sacrificing to give peace and a better future to coming generations.

          • Graeme Rymill

            Ok John. Answer me this. What does Mattis mean when he states

            “They’d be ill-advised to go back to violating the chemical convention” ?

          • John Whitehot

            He means that the US would attack Syria if Syria used chemical weapons, something both Obama and Trump administration have always said.

            Nothing new.

            What is interesting is what kind of logical course can someone go through in order to give those words the meaning “We have evidence Syria has chemical weapons”.

            These people don’t act and speak according to anything they have or know; these people act on the basis of the schemes that have been forced on them.

            So Mattis, knowing that there is no evidence – rather, all the evidence points at Al-Nusra with western country backings as the perpetrators – tries to talk in such a way to make a listener think they have more than what they let out.

            It’s zionist propaganda style, israeli press is literally saturated with that kind of trick.
            Ridiculous if you ask me – as the “clever” reader also has his ego gratified by “being able to spot” hidden messages.

            Watching these people scatter like cockroaches as soon as someone starts telling people the truth is a real spectacle.

          • Graeme Rymill

            Put that dunce’s hat on John Whitehot and sit in the corner!

            He is saying Syria has used chemical weapons before ( “to go back to violating” – in other words “ to revert to violating” or to “ return to violating”)

            It’s not hard if you try!

          • Gary Sellars

            Talking shit again Rymill? Don’t you ever shut up and cease embarassing yourself?

            Would you like to tell us again how the Russian aircraft were destroyed by terrorist mortar attacks (even though the photos of damage were clearly not caused by frag warheads).

          • John Whitehot

            yaya.

            meanwhile, your point about Mattis more or less implicitly stating that Syria has chemical weapons lies wrecked in pieces all around the place.

          • Graeme Rymill

            John…it it just me or is this “there is no green grass at Khmeimim air base” all over again? :-)

          • John Whitehot

            exactly.

          • Eskandar Black

            You are correct that chlorine gas has been used in Syria. This is not what is meant by chemical weapons. Khan Sheykhoun had allegations of Sarin use, which is a very strong organophosphate, a neurotoxic substance that leads to a horrible death. This is not the same as chlorine which causes skin burns, not pleasant either, but just not in the same class of weapons. US is trying to mingle chlorine use with sarin use when convenient to accuse Assad, but there is no proof of the latter. It is my understanding of CBRN report is that organophosphates(pesticides) were present in large quantities in the facility destroyed by a SyAf airstrike, and this contributed to some of the exposure on the ground of persons who presented with what amounted to be cholinergic symptoms (symptoms of both pesticides and nerve gasorganophosphates).

            The simple fact about what Mattis said or didn’t say wont be the best way to figure out what really happened, because people lie. Here are some simple questions that if you ask yourself might provide some insight into what really happened. Why was the airbase(Shayrat) that would have had any evidence of a chemical attack, destroyed? Why not send a team of FBI agents there to collect samples(They were invited by the Russians and the Syrians)? Why was the crime scene on the ground not secured prior to coming out with conclusions? Who controlled the crime scene? What would be a military purpose of using a chemical agent on a worthless village? Why not reveal evidence that assad posses nerve agent? What do you think are the answers to those questions? Sources and methods :) HAHAHAHA

          • palebluedot

            Yep. They got Trump to bloody his hands with Syrian blood by the Khan Sheykhoun false flag. Mission accomplished, because that makes future attacks based on lies possible/probable. That said, I’ve no earthly idea why Mattis apparently just said they never had any direct evidence of Syrian “regime” complicity in either sarin attack.

        • John Whitehot

          the usual idiocies.

          Hezbollah does not have technician and specialists able to operate S-300s.

          You don’t have the slightest hint on what kind of systems S-300/400 are.
          It’s so evident that the only thing you try is to start from non-sensical, if not outright foolish military arguments to get a way to criticize Putin or Russia.

          You’re a joke.

          • Serious

            Surely Hezbollah don’t have technician and specialists able to operate S-300 as they don’t have S-300 !!!! XD

            But, give them some S-300 and learn them to operate these weapons and they will master it at the speed of light and operate it like a charm.

          • John Whitehot

            “Surely Hezbollah don’t have technician and specialists able to operate S-300 as they don’t have S-300 !!!! XD”

            so funny.

            You can’t just give out systems and “learn them to operate those weapons”.

            I shouldn’t even be replying because I don’t like getting in these kind of vulgarities, but radar specialists don’t grown on trees, neither you put an S-300 on the ground like its a MANPAD and it’s ready to work – you need a developed and integrated early warning network, command control and communications and Hezbollah does not have anything like that, they are mostly light infantry forces with some mechanized and armor components.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Unless chemical weapons are used in vast quantities as in WW1 and to a lesser extent by Iraq in the Iraq/Iran war, they are counter productive and have no military value..

      The question is why Russia hasn’t equipped Syria with more modern anti-defense weapons, especially since they are now involved in the war.

      • Serious

        Because Putin is friend with Netanyahu.

        • YOoo

          That’s true. Putin doesn’t love Assad or Iran. He will use Assad and the shia militas backed by Iran to take what he wants from Syria. Regardless Russia was responsible for downing the F-16. Not in opposition to Israel to retaliate for Assad or Iran. Putin wouldn’t go that far to protect his puppet. But in retaliation for the downing of the Su-25. All fingers point to CIA operatives responsible for that attack to downgrade Russian arms sales to major buyers around the world. Russia retaliated by taking down a F-16, a advance aircraft that sells well for US companies. They found the perfect scenario. Netanyahu will probably forgive Putin. He knows Russia isn’t against Israel.

          • John Whitehot

            “to downgrade Russian arms sales to major buyers around the world”

            very unlikely as SU-25s aren’t being sold or offered much if at all.

            Not many air forces worldwide need or want specialized CAS planes.

          • YOoo

            I was afraid someone would counteract my argument with this. It does seem highly unlikely that yes, it was a SU-25 and not a SU-35. Needless to say, it’s a Russian aircraft used by Russia itself. I am sure that Americans were hoping for something better than a SU-25. They probably just supplied the weapon or helped to facilitate it’s smuggling inside rebel territory. The point is I am sure Russia knows America was involved and Russia responded back.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            They stole the Su 25 and copied it what nonsense you are talking about, they turned it into a stealth fighter way too expensive to fly.

          • John Whitehot

            I won’t discuss the differences between the two planes, in any case the rest it’s your opinion.

            The russian plane was bombing terrorists at the request of the legitimate Syrian government.

            The israeli plane was illegally bombing Syria itself.

            Saying that it’s a “response” (Why to the US and not to Israel then?) implies that thus, Israelis can feel safe to bomb Syria every time they want, unless a Russian plane has been shot down previously?

            it’s nonsensical.

      This is not enough teach the aggressor lessens,The will get replacements from america with no time. Assad needs better Air Defense System and Russia is failing to protect Syria, therefore at least Putin should provide and train Syria SAA with latest Air Defense System, so Syria can defend itself

      • World_Eye

        Latest air defense cost too much money, and I just doubt that Russia will just go and provide this for Syria, there is only one set of S-400 air defense and It’s stationed In Latakia In Hermeim air base, and that has range to protect Tartus base too. S-400 are the worlds most sophisticated air defense I just don’t believe that Russia will handle them such equipment. Although Syria has some S-200 air defense systems and some Buk’s mobile air defense.

      Syrians must start building their own systems with hezbollah and iranian scientists. I’m pretty sure they can do it. And I’m sure that some Europeans will also help.

        Maybe China would be better option for Syria to get better military hardware,specially Air Defense System, as China looks for business. Russia failed to protect Syria and provide Syria with old military hardware. Put simply Russia selling Syria refurbish old military hardware, that some of them remember II world war .

        • Gary Sellars

          “Russia failed to protect Syria and provide Syria with old military hardware.”

          .. I suppose that’s why Syria is clearly WINNING and the Yankstani criminal regime change operation has FAILED. Fck but you’re stupid… Russia supplies Syria with exactly what they need and what they can operate and maintain.. unlike the US that extracts money from captive nations for over-priced expensive junk that either doesn’t work, or can’t be maintained, or usually both….

    USA and israel like dumb people. That’s why they help the stupid saudis and make war agaisnt Iran.

    Build weapons. The world is not safe especially when a rabid dog is trying to kill everyone.

  • Garga

    Israeli sources are usually better and more reliable than the American sources, I mean they usually lie less and a bit less biased (in the sense that everything Israeli is awesome and everything enemy sucks), and I don’t mean they are good and what a source should be, at all. When they blatantly lie against clear evidence, it’s a very clear sign of panic.

    Debka files yesterday claimed that Israeli helicopters shoot down an “Iranian” drone but the drone which hit the ground is captured “intact”. In addition, they claimed that both pilots of the F-16 ejected and are well and healthy.
    AFAICS, there’s a footage that shows one pilot ejects and the pilot died in the hospital, so he’s not well and healthy at all.

    So far Iran denies that the drone is ours and apparently there was a drone which crashed in the Syrian side of border in the result of Israeli fire (they have to protect their terror groups, don’t they?).

    So, such string of lies tells me they are in panic mode. And as we all predicted, their thuggish uncle Sam told the world that his brat nephew (or is it his own bastard?) is right as usual and everybody else is at fault.

    • chris chuba

      Did the Israelis pull a ‘Nikki Haley’ and show the alleged Iranian drone? I missed that, I’ll have to google for that video and see the intact drone that they shot down.

      BTW even if the Iranians were using a surveillance drone on the Israelis, so what? Israel has been threatening to invade Lebanon and Syria for months because of their ‘red lines’. I’d want to see if the Israelis were gathering troops.

      • Wanklord

        The “federalization” (for not calling it partitioning) of the Syrian Arab Republic is fait accompli: Russian involvement in Syria has proven to be a complete fiasco since Putin’s strategy of unifying that country never came to reality despite employing his mighty arsenal of strategic bombers, cruise missiles, fighter jets, anti-aircraft systems, etc against ISIS and anti-regime forces. Better start getting accustomed to the idea of 3 autonomous regions functioning with absolute independence from Damascus (one region controlled by the Kurds, another one managed by the SDF and the remaining territories under the umbrella of the Assad regime). The real winner in this conflict is indeed Israel while the true losers are Iran, Hezbollah and the Russian energy companies that wanted to monopolize the gas distribution to other latitudes via Syrian territories.

        • Tudor Miron

          Wank, do you really think that if you said that white is black we will believe in it? If you ignore the obvious facts about what happened in Syria over the span of 2014 to 2018 it doesn’t mean that others do.

          Most inaccurate comment I have heard on this site for a while!
          “Complete fiasco”! u must be icing in an alternative universe because the one im living in, I see Assad in power and loved (in its cities and populated areas) I see isis gone and defunded! I see turkey on a leash! I see Kurds begging for help and Syrian allowing Kurds to moe from Manbij to Afrin pocket! I see SAA shooting down Israeli jets. I see Def Sec Mattis claiming that no chemical attacks are being made by the SAA even tho rebels are claiming so! I see massive lands being liberated! I see winning, I see billboards of Assad and Putin everywhere! I saw DeZ liberated, Aleppo, I saw Palmyra liberated twice with a cleansing of Russian ballet! See the map turning red and Iranian bases being built! I see the SAA armed with Pantsir s-1’s that are hooked into the Russian radar systems! I see S-200’s damagingly F-35’s! I saw 2 Israeli jets shot down! I saw Erdogan write a letter to the Russian pilots family who was shot down to say sorry and send money! I saw Russian bases being built and expanded in syria, in Egypt, I saw the laying of pipes in the Black Sea (turkstream) I saw glenncore and Qatar purchase 20% shares in Rosneft! I saw the Kurdish referendum in Iraq fail! Saw the SAA with the help of Russia, rush to the border of Iraq and create a transit land Link between Tehran to Lebanon! And so much more!
          Is thats what u call losing? then id love to see what winning looks like, because this war is almost over! dont be surprised if the Kurds fall back to their pre-war lines! Turkey could ensure this on their own without the SAA having to lift a single finger! THINK!
          you’re a loser and u certainly are a wanker as ur name suggests!

    • Tudor Miron

      I agree with what you say but not that part: “Israeli sources are usually better and more reliable than the American sources”(c)
      1. American sources (MSM) are owned by Jews so it is very correct to call the American.
      2. Israeli sources are often hiding less – in terms that they are more open about their true ideology – chosen race, goyims purpose etc.

      To sum it up – that’s the same brainwashing machine but one is a domestic version and another is an export version.

      • John Whitehot

        Yep I see it the same.

    • TiredOfBsToo

      All I can say is, I was saddened to hear yet more terrorist supporting strikes by Israel and the US against the Syrian people and their supporters. However, I was very happy to hear of the Israeli jet being shot down and the other ones that were damaged. It’s about time that the Syrian people start shooting them out of the skies when the Zionists come to commit more war crimes over Syria. I hope Israel now stops supporting the terrorists in Syria, but if not, I hope many more of their jets will bite the dust.

    • Abe Manhattan

      both Pilots were on Israeli TV today, didn’t die. Stop making stuff up.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      The drone was an raptor believe it was a wayward Israel drone and not Iranian design unless they use made in Israel parts and US, difference this was the one that fired into Syria trying to hit Russians at T4 base. Though Israeli Organization sources are sketchy at best and very suspect in the least. Watch a CCTV video and it showed the missile impacting on the plane as it crashed nice explosion, they may have lost more than 1 35 yr old pilot.

    AND an A64 Apache too………….. things get better by the minute. IDF pilots better brush up on their parachute training, ‘cos it looks like that they are going to have to get used to it.

  • hvaiallverden

    oh… there is much more, just hear, the sound of huffing and puffing behind the curtains, and messages, well, words are cheep, right now, as usual, ISISrael after showing them self, the Wankees, and above all, the Russians/Syria/Iran etc, etc, their latest cluster f…. witch this indeed was, and obviously not expected, but its now.
    Nice done, it may be an beta test, but never the less, their whining about Stone age S-200 say it all, poor schmucks.

    I dont think there will be more, ISISrael got smacked, and the raving pack of loonies in the WH, is remarkable, how to put it, sane ??? ( i think I blew an fuse in my own brain, hehe)
    And just when things could be more idiotic and exposes the sham, when an General, an so called Joojo, uh.. and an Lithuanian shit head, with an freak from Moldova, by miracle of course since they are the chosen ones, right Trumpstein, are Semitic, hallelujah, what an miracle, whines about Iran, spices their nonsense with some Hezb bullshit, witch of course is out to kill every Joojo walking in this planet, according to the acid house formerly knows as Tel-aviv, contained obviously be the Orcs, some how, mentally since they see Iran everywhere this days, like the days when Russian was crawling behind the wall paper, in the chimneys, subs in the loo, hooohoo, and Santa is red, maybe Christmas is been hacked by Putin.
    Why not, everything goes in this piss-gate times.

    And then we can move to what the Norwegian MSM whines about since its the Dick Assad that is Dha Bad goym sorry, fellow, as ISISrael where the Norwegian MSM claimed its Iran attacking ISISrael, like an real war, its remarkably out of touch with everything, but hey, we never lie or fake anything, right.
    But then again, Norway is just an petty shameless vassal, greedy f….. with no morale, an exceptional breed of ass likers and scums aka Khazars.

    Whats next, yeah, let the rats jump and shout, rotten scums.
    But I guess they got the message.

    peace

  • YOoo

    Russia assisted Assad and Iran to down a American product of F-16 in retaliation for the CIA operatives giving rebels anti aircraft weapons to down a Russian product of a SU-25. The competition between them to increase arms trade to buyers is getting heated. There are different agendas not disclosed happening here. I hope people can read read between the lines.

    • John Whitehot

      too much reading between the lines will make you unable to read the lines themselves.

          I don’t believe they shot down a AH-64, if anything, for the reason that Israel knows better than violating Syrian airspace with helicopters.

          • John Whitehot

            so the helicopter was supposedly shot down over golan heights? in any case, I don’t believe it, and I don’t care about those who use Sputnik or RT links to make their points more belieavable at pro-russians individuals.

            The only thing I know is that there is absolutely no indication lest alone proof that the helicopter has been shot down. If someone proves it happened, then I’ll be happily believe it.

          • dontlietome

            Each to their own John. This I will say however…………. if VT mention it, then just because Sputnik or RT are mentioned is NOT intended to indicate they are the source of the intel………. its not VT’s way of putting intel that they quite sure of, out there, simply because their sources are pretty fucking good………… and I say that without hesitation. If my explanation sounds obtuse to you……. that is because VT is. Gordon Duff explained in a video a while back, that Intel his outfit puts out to the public domain, sometimes needs to be muddied to save him and his colleagues from being arrested. That that as you like. Regards.

          • John Whitehot

            “just because Sputnik or RT are mentioned is NOT intended to indicate they are the source of the intel.”

            Of course. in these cases on Sputnik and RT, you read what’s the source of the news. I agree with you fully on this point and that was the core of my previous post.

            That said, the above media outlets are normally very cautious in putting their colors over news with sources less than very safe.

            It’s a much different journalism from the one we are witnessing in the west and especially in the US, where sometimes you have the impression that “anonymous sources inside the X department” are invented so to display some (normally) anti-Russian news with a writing in block capitals.

            The ethic level of journalism in the west has never been so low, in fact it seems to me that its the lowest point ever reached by journalism in its whole history, including nazi Germany, fascist Italy and other regimes or police states.

Its probably the same reason why I turned my TV off 10 years ago…………… and have never turned it back on since. Keep your eye on events unfolding after the crash of the internal flight in Russia two nights ago , as there are pointers towards the “Usual Subjects”.

          • John Whitehot

            there has been good journalists both in Europe and in the US even during the cold war. There was a kind of investigative journalism that seemed not to be subservient to “higher powers” – in fact governments invested resources in suppressing information in such ways that it would stay far away from this journalism “ears” (its sources I mean).

            In some cases, the only instance of information dissemination that can be related to it today is wikileaks.

            nonetheless, as you say, in all western countries the general press was far less free than how it pretended to be.
