With Russia admitting it is bombing U.S.-trained rebels in Syria, there is the alarming high risk of a military clash between U.S. and Russian forces over Syria’s crowded airspace.

Washington and Moscow officials make attempts to coordinate their actions in Syria to de-escalate the tense situation in the region, but these attempts have not borne fruit since Wednesday.

If officials fail to ensure that American and Russian air forces do not encounter one another during overlapping airstrikes in Syria, there is a high risk of a ‘one-thing-led-to-another’ scenario, which may unleash the World War 3.

Ever since Russia started bombing Syria on Wednesday, the Kremlin warned Washington to not fly U.S. warplanes in Syria without providing any geographical information about exact positions it planned to strike.

The U.S. refused to comply with the request and the American air campaign in Syria is continuing as usual.

The high possibility of a military clash between U.S. and Russian forces in Syria became apparent after the Pentagon confirmed Russia is not targeting exclusively ISIS targets as it claims to be.

A number of reports from U.S.-backed Syrian rebels, including groups linked to the CIA-trained Free Syrian Army, indicate that Russia targets their positions with deadly airstrikes.

The U.S. and its allies, including some Persian Gulf states are attacking areas held by ISIS militants, while Russia and the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad target areas held by rebel groups, which want Assad removed from power.

Therefore, accidentally or otherwise, a clash between U.S. and Russian forces is of high possibility, which is why U.S. officials urge Moscow to coordinate their actions in Syria.

Russia and U.S. attempt to ‘deconflict’ the situation

Washington and Moscow military officials conducted a video conference to discuss pilot distress signals, language issues and other precautionary measures to reduce the risk of Russian and American aircraft encountering one another over the Syrian airspace, according to Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook.

“International frequencies that can be used at a time of distress…conversation between aircraft, what language would it be in…Those are some of the questions that we are trying to address…so that there isn’t a misjudgment or miscalculation in the air,” Cook told reporters on Thursday.

The talks between U.S. and Russian military officials to reach a compromise regarding next steps on deconfliction efforts will continue within the coming days, Cook added.

Cook also noted that “at this point” Washington is only reviewing proposals and is not planning to share intelligence with Moscow to avoid miscalculations as both sides conduct overlapping airstrikes in Syria.

Russia admits targeting U.S.-trained rebels in Syria

Russia carries out a second day of airstrikes in Syria, in which at least 36 people have been killed, including five women and six children, according to rebel opposition groups.

Russian aircraft began dropping bombs in Syria hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin pushed a measure through the upper house of the Russian parliament approving the use of Russian military forces abroad.

According to Russian officials, the vote came after a request by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for military assistance in fighting ISIS targets.

However, according to numerous reports by rebel groups and U.S. surveillance, it’s not exclusively ISIS whom Russia is bombing in Syria, but also U.S.-backed rebels in coordination with the Assad regime.

And although during his talks with French president Francois Hollande, Putin insisted that Moscow was targeting exclusively ISIS in Syria, there are indications that contradict his words.

Russian defense ministry gives wrong info about positions

The Russian defense ministry issued a statement saying it hit 12 ISIS targets, but as it was later verified, it turned out that ISIS militants actually did not hold the areas, which Moscow claims were held by ISIS.

Syrian activists have been reporting that allegedly Russian airstrikes hit their camps in the north and center of Syria, including in the province of Hama, in which Russian aircraft targeted areas held by U.S.-backed rebel group called Tajamu al-Izzah.

With Putin insisting Russia carries out airstrikes exclusively against ISIS militants, his own spokesman Dmitry Peskov contradicted his words, saying that Russia was also targeting other organizations in addition to ISIS.

“These organizations are well known and the targets are chosen in coordination with the armed forces of Syria,” Peskov told the AP on Thursday.

The commander of an FSA-affiliated group confirmed Thursday that two allegedly Russian airstrikes hit a camp held by the group, which had received training from the CIA in Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Russia-Syria-Iran-Hezbollah alliance brings us closer to the World War 3?

It was reported that hundreds of Iranian troops arrived in Syria 10 days ago along with weaponry to launch ground combat operations on rebel-held areas in the north of the country.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran and has been fighting alongside the Assad regime since the beginning of the conflict, told Reuters on Thursday that it is preparing to join the operation as well.

“The [Russian] airstrikes will in the near future be accompanied by ground advances by the Syrian army and its allies,” said one of the sources, according to Reuters.

The planned ground combat operations alongside the Syrian army will go hand in hand with Russian airstrikes to regain the control over the Northern-Western part of Syria, which Assad’s opponents gained earlier this year.

We see an emerging alliance between Russia, Iran, Hezbollah, and the Assad regime, which will likely get other Middle Eastern countries involved into the war over Syria. And maybe not just Middle Eastern countries, which raises concerns that we are standing on the verge of the World War 3.

“The vanguard of Iranian ground forces began arriving in Syria: soldiers and officers specifically to participate in this battle. They are not advisors … we mean hundreds with equipment and weapons. They will be followed by more,” the second source told Reuters, adding that Iraqis would also join the ground combat operation in Syria.

  1. WHY DO YOU GUYS FEEL THREATENED?……….ITS BECAUSE YOU KNOW YOU ARE A SCAM,…..AND SHIT YOU HAVE DONE IS UNSPEAKABLE.
    THUS YOU WILL BE THREATENED TILL THE END OF THE WORLD……YOU HAVE GONE OVERBOARD AND BEYOND RETURN SO MUCH THAT YOU ARE NOW A NATION THAT IS A THREAT UNTO ITSELF!

  2. The graffiti saga tells the whole story!…all this was PLANNED!………CIA!….helloooo………regime change,destroying foreign countries and killing their leaders is TREACHEROUS!!!!!!!!!!

  3. And how exactly is that US’s business????………….how many of its own people has America killed during slavery/miscegenation and even now through incarceration?……should other countries fund rebels and send weapons to fighters in the US?……Should Putin or Xi strike the satanic house in DC and kill your president just because of daily killing of its own black citizens?

  4. you are pathetic and disgusting!….your country and government will be likened to the Nazis many many years from now……killing foreign leaders and people with all manner of weapons from drones to rebels is ungodly.

  5. take your fake rankings and shove em up your A***..such are crappy propaganda……..just like that laughable junk you call “IQ scale”……….or trying to be blue-eyed Caucasoid pharaohs..HAHHHAH!…….wonders shall never end!…I laugh at you pathetic people.

  6. Here’s my feeling…. If you, your friends, your allies have ever threatened me. my friends, or if you have even made me feel threatened then I’m going to do whatever it takes to remove, destroy you.

  7. Funny I see no one asking for China, and I also only see shitty little dictatorships getting in bed with Russia… what planet were you looking at because it isn’t earth.

  8. Weird 23 days later and still not much to speak of in the way of fighting ISIS but hey they are helping Iran ship illegal arms to Syria so ya way to go Russia….. what a joke.

  9. There are just 5 active duty ‘rebels’ trained by US……….so why don’t they bring them back to a safer place outside of Syria if they think they’re vulnurable to Russian airstrikes? Or at least why not USA shares their location information about them so that Russia will not strike them. <- Russia asked for that but US never complies. Russia wants to know both right & wrong targets but US never provides them. So go………………US basically wants a reason to show Russia is a monster nothing else….through all its propaganda mainstream media channels.

  10. Wow that was a really intelligent. I dont watch CNN and my 6 year old can come up with a better rebuttal than that one. I think you must be the retarded one.

  11. Well said. We were ready to go to war when soviet union wanted to have a base in Cuba, yet we place nuclear weapons on Russia doorstep. We need to stop being hypocrites and face our own economic growth at home. And YES we do not have any right to choose leader for other countries. We need to stop the bullying.

  12. @Ken L, You are really retarded. You can’t even separate propaganda from reality, you just take everything CNN tells you as gospel.
    Take your medication and go to bed.

  13. Every-time someone writes about ww3 it gets them more hits. If you search “Syria ww3” in google this blog is listed multiple times

  14. LMFAO Well being your economy is #18 behind the world power Spain! LMFAO And those cruise missles! LMFAO LMFAO This is a helpful reminder of a fact that is often forgotten in Washington but is remembered all too well in Moscow: The Russian military is formidable, but it is a generation or more behind American forces. After a week of hyperventilating American coverage of Russia’s Syria intervention, this should be a reality check.

  15. JUNKY CRUISE MISSLES! LMFAO RUSSAIA CHINA AND NORTH KOREA?

LMFAO) and your people eating beet soup everyday and you call the USA bankrupt? 14.5 trillion is Social Security and owed debt to NO ONE! 3.5 trillion is the actual debt which is treasury notes…not a loan we took out! But hey! Those super power Russian missiles that were fired from the ships? Half of them struck IRAN! Thanks we needed your help! LMFAO You are NOT ready for the west apparently! You are losers with broken equipment and stuff that does not work! We in the West are light years ahead of you! 18 trillion economy in the USA! You are 1.6 trillion, China is 6 trillion! Congrats though on being ahead of Nigeria! LMFAO

  18. America is being carved up like a Thanksgiving turkey. America has no
    chance of surviving its massive debt, impending war and the social chaos
    that will very soon consume this country.

  19. From one article (WSJ): “The utter failure of Western policy in both Libya and Syria has to be seen for what it is: not just a political blunder but a humanitarian crime.” The Syrian civil war has produced well over 5 million displaced persons and over 300,000 deaths. “In May last year [2012], Senator Rand Paul was one of the first to speculate … weapons being trafficked to terrorists in Syria as part of the United States’ proxy war against the Assad regime.” (GlobalResearch.) The Obama administration admitted in congressional testimony that it had funneled over 600 tons of weapons to Islamist fighters in Syria, claiming that this wasn’t illegal arms trafficking by citing a ten year old congressional authorization given to the Bush administration for the war in Afghanistan.

  20. Russia admits targeting U.S.-trained rebels in Syria: you mean AQI, ISIS, Al Nursa?

    Russia-Syria-Iran-Hezbollah alliance brings us closer to the World War 3? No. The US plan to destabilize Syria followed by Iran, Russia and China is brought to a conclusion.

    Russian defense ministry gives wrong info about positions–seriously. The Russians said they were not discriminating between good and bad terrorists, and given the cooperation among such groups, there is not a dime’s difference between them.

    Finally, given the theater-wide radar and coordination on each side, the chances of an accidental air craft incident are small to non-existent. Chances are further reduced by the small number of flights the US makes in Syria. Accidents could happen on purpose, though.

  21. While you identify me as Russian, because you’re so ignorant you don’t realizer Russia no longer has a “communist” government. Just jibes from the uneducated. Who can no more “sound” educated than a cockroach can sing opera . . .

    Obliteration of the anti-Assad forces will be a welcome development.

    Russia knows how to handle these vermin:

    The 1999–2000 battle of Grozny was the siege and assault of the Chechen capital Grozny by Russian forces, lasting from late 1999 to early 2000. The siege and fighting left the capital devastated. In 2003, the United Nations called Grozny the most destroyed city on Earth.

    If you watch the You Tube videos of Russian planes in action, you can hear the frightened weenies screeching “Allahu Akbar ” over and over as their “moderate” buddies are vaporized nearby.

    Leave behind DNA-coated pebbles, Russia.

  22. There is no proof that Assad forces used chemical weapons. My money is on people who eats organs. Only US and their lap dogs spin this story over and over again like it was their first lie.
    They used this tactics so many times it is emmbarasing and insult to any intelligence.

    Verrtehen?

  23. In response to Russia trying to take out the terrorist scum, Obama has announced that they will INCREASE FUNDING to ISIS !!!

    USA your government is insane.

  24. do you actually believe Obama is calling the shots? hahahahaha The same neocons that have been in power for decades are calling the shots and meddling all over the world.

  25. Rebel Factions were Massacring Christians too,
    Russia not Bombing the Kurds & if they target them, then I’ll be against Russia involvement, but till then, they are getting the closets threats 1st that are attacking there coalition which is just common sense, I hope they Bomb ISIS Soon & have heard they started

  26. What do you think, that the ground you walk on created you ?
    Lifeless element(OBJECTS) never have nor ever will make life from scratch!
    You’re Creator must be smarter than you are, by far ! & He is !!!
    I Hope you seek Him & get a personal relationship with him.
    I finally did at age 31yrs old over 20yrs ago, I was a partier & evolutionist back then, & even received Jesus as my Lord & Savior still while think Evolution was true, I didn’t need to not believe in it to Receive him, so a non-issue !
    I now know the Law & the Prophecies are undeniable in being Fact & relevant

  27. that speaks more about the quality of you than the quality of those 4 guys.
    if we can trust defeating ISIS, Syria, Russia and Iran to those 4 guys, they are probably some of the most exceptional individuals

  28. world war 2 was fought for spheres of influence. nobody gave a rats ass about poland- exactly like today nobody gives a f about syria. what is happening today is the same thing as yesterday.

  29. You bet there is a big risk especially after hearing about this US military gun ship killing nineteen in a hospital in Afghanistan. If Russia had done this the US would probably try and start a war over it. The western news media would really attack Russia it they had done this.

  30. Russia killed a handful of civilians? America has butchered murdered over 1 million innocent victims from Libya to Afghanistan since 2001.
    Get facts straight- crappy British news propaganda

  31. I don’t have any ill will against Russia or US. It is not about me. What i am seeing is rising popularity of Russia and China in the world as they are challenging the US dominance around the world because world is tired enough of US and its policies. US needs to just sit down and stop bringing democracy/destruction without being asked.

  32. Yeah, there can’t be world war 3 when the all militaries are working for each other and not against each other does not make a whole lot of sense? And why are labeling rebels as Al-qauda or isis or isisl when they are not, they are just people who don’t like outside governments and the Al-Assad government for trying force them from their homes and once again the rebels are not or no way related to a terrorist group of any kind that just like if the people in America, rebel against their government but the government calls them terrorist and not people who piss off about their government oh, know I get it, never mind carry on. Still non-sense and use such a beautiful women is low not because she is a women that knows how to write but a women that people are stigmatize by sexism it is crazy or is it just me?

  33. Looking at your comment stream I see lines of one-liners or disconnected “thoughts” typical of the Tweet-minded.
    No analysis, no coherent argument — just jibes.
    The intellectual equivalent of bird droppings on the windshield.
    Rinse, whoosh!

  34. There is this service called “Google” just copy and paste (instructions are available online). The second reference WikiPedia.

  35. Here’s your reply.

    Google: Russian Air Force hits 50 ISIS targets in Syria over 3 days, ‘significantly’ damaging militants

    They censor urls apparently because they can’t afford editors

    The American idea that it can supply and not attack specific terrorists is being reduced to small, DNA-coated pebbles.
    Guess what?
    There’s absolutely nothing the US can do about it.
    I know — the French air force has been deployed!
    Moscow trembles!
    Read up on the battle of Grozny if you want to see how this will go.

  37. Obama’s comments about promoting peace and democracy at the UN General Assembly on Monday was “Orwellian language” that distorted the reality of US foreign policy, said Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster and pastor in San Antonio, Texas.
    The US president’s criticism of Russia, Iran and Syria during his speech was “absolute nonsense,” Dankof told Press TV on Monday.
    At the annual General Assembly meeting of leaders, Obama told the international body that he commands the most powerful military force in the world. But no matter how powerful its military or strong its economy, the United States could not solve the world’s problems on its own, he said.
    He pointed to the war in Iraq, where despite sending more than 100,000 troops and spending trillions of dollars, the United States was unsuccessful in stabilizing the country.
    “It is the United States and Israel, principally, that have made an absolute mess of the world, both in the Middle East as well as in Eastern Europe, as well as in the southern underbelly of Russia,” Dankof noted.
    “So I really don’t know what the president is talking about when he says the United States can’t solve problems alone. The United States and Israel have chiefly been the supreme source of difficulty in the world,” he added.
    Obama also said that the Syrian crisis “affects us all” and that he makes no apology for the use of military force against “an apocalyptic cult” like Daesh (ISIL).
    “What the president of the United States needs to do is to come clean with the American people and with the world and to admit… that ISIL is the deliberate creation of American intelligence, Israeli intelligence, and Saudi Arabian intelligence… which has been deliberately introduced into Syria in order to destabilize and overthrow the Assad regime,” Dankof said.

  38. Anyone who is not brainwashed and knows what’s really going on is a troll? You are the biggest troll get s life and go do something productive with your life. Losheeeer. Lmfao

  42. Who’s scared of who? I don’t see the US threatening Russia with nukes if war was to break out between the 2. You know why? Because we know in a conventional war we’d wipe the floor with Russia (with or without Nato countries participating). Scared, desperate people make such reckless threats.

  43. Most of those death have been the result of nato zionist meddling in Syria. USA strikes have killed thousands it’s just u won’t hear about it in your Zionist controlled media

  44. There is a big difference. Eastern Ukrainian people are ethnic to those lands. Those Syrian Rebels are paid nato terrorists who are not Syrian citizens. Get your facts straight don’t fool yourself

  45. You need to go re-read history Toby because you’re incorrect but nice try. Please show me where it says what you claim below about any residual force?

    The U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement (official name: Agreement
    Between the United States of America and the Republic of Iraq On the
    Withdrawal of United States Forces from Iraq and the Organization of
    Their Activities during Their Temporary Presence in Iraq) was a status of forces agreement (SOFA) between Iraq and the United States, signed by President George W. Bush
    in 2008. It established that U.S. combat forces would withdraw from
    Iraqi cities by June 30, 2009, and all U.S. combat forces will be
    completely out of Iraq by December 31, 2011

  46. You mean like Bush did when the Georgian/Russia skirmish broke out and he sent them aid while watching on the sideline? Is that the kind of spine you’re referring to…smh?

  47. That’s funny because rebels is exactly what Russia calls the separatists in Eastern Ukraine. Therefore using your logic they too should be referred to as terrorists also?

  48. No. The EU is. Sorry, Russia is a regional power. China is a Super power. Power sharing is fine unless your a communist that supresses its people. When your economy is tanked #18, if you are a super power, so are the 17 countries ahead of you. Lmfao

  49. The feds don’t live there neither does a loser like you. Vip? The only vip is your daughters mouth on her Afro American boyfriends —- in her dorm. I am not fat it’s only for Americans. I am very well off. Graduated from 2 prestigious universities in Russia also from a top 15 USA colleges in USC. I paid $120k cash for my time at usc alone so it should tell u a lot about my socioeconomic well being. Both of my parents are well off in Russia. They have more than your empty head can fantasize about. Americans generally speaking are simple minded decent peOple but you are a bigot self righteous homo. Nice blogging with u comrade. See u in helllllsoon.

  50. The feds do not live in 30 million dollar homes, you are correct. But they do guard the VIP’S. Again, why would a beautiful woman like my wife want a russian that is way fat, gross teeth, poor living on troll wages, smokes, and is uncut full of cheese? I dont think you could get a homosexusl either. Lmfao lmfao lmfao. If im a loser , you are a really really really really really really really really BIG LOSER. You will NEVER HAVE WHAT I HAVE.

Go do something productive with your life stop living in a hateful misery and open your eyes on your governments criminal activities. Stop being a empty shell

  52. I guess the Russia is still one of the other world power besides the mighty US. It is nice to see the world is not only dominated by the West leading by the US. A balanced power share is healthier than single superpower.

  53. It is about time finally some one else is also taking charge and share the responsibilities to protect world peace.

  54. I believe there were counties in Ohio where Mitt Romney got zero percent of the votes. Let’s not forget the “dangling chads” in Florida where Bush won the election when Gore had the lead in the popular vote..sounds like bogus elections in the USA too. The USA is involved in REGIME CHANGE again just as we have been in Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Afghanistan, Syria, Ukraine and on and on it goes. Why is it ok for the USA to pick who should be a leader in ANY country?

    You should read the “Wolfowitz Doctrine” written by Paul Wolfowitz, Secretary of Defense under President Regan (?). It states the USA will take every action necessary, including a nuclear first strike, to prevent Russia from ever becoming a world super-power again. The USA has been trying to place nuclear weapons on the borders of Russia ever since then; its the Cuban missile crisis in reverse. What do you think Russia is going to do, sit there and let the USA place nuclear missile batteries on their borders? What did JFK do back when the Cuban missile crisis was unfolding?

  55. The fact is Russia has had two naval bases in Syria for years. One in Aleppo and one in Tartus as well as the one in Crimea, Ukraine. The Russians are merely trying to block the US from eliminating these three Mediterranean warm water ports they use for their nuclear submarine fleet, just as the USA would do if the Russian were trying to eliminate any one of our multitude of foreign military bases. The USA has been supporting the REBEL forces trying to oust Bashar al Assad in actions know as REGIME CHANGE (which Obama admitted to yesterday on CNBC news; he said “that the US training program in Syria has been a failure”…What training program?…training the rebels is totally forbidden by the US Constitution!! He should be arrested and charged as a war criminal!!!!

    The USA is the best country on the planet, except we have a criminally insane government that likes to make war to bully other countries into submission just as Putin has stated; a bunch of war criminals!

    What did Russia do in Georgia back when President Clinton tried to place nuclear missile batteries on the border with Georgia and Russia? They sent in their military and crushed that attempt before returning home.

USA being a bully and an aggressor hasn’t won a major war. Btw it was the soviet state who defeated the Germans. USA has done two things genicide do native Americans and committed the single most brutal act on humanity in Hiroshima and nagasaki

  59. There is no such a thing as rebels. They are equally terrorists. Just because your curropt American government backs them off doesn’t mean they are not terrorists

  60. Yah contributed to the establishment of isis and so called moderate terrorists. Also killed thousands of civilians. Thanks for the contribution one day karma will be a b—–

  61. Sounds like you want your government to be the only aggressor in the world. Cmon buddy that’s not fair. There are other major players too in the oil and banking industry. Now crawl back where u originated from and shut your illiterate mouth

  67. Excuse me? Are you thinking of the same Syria I am? If so, I would advise you to get up to date on what has been happening the last four years. If not, then thank you for your contribution. It was most helpful!

  68. As long as Obama is president, there will be no confrontation in Syria or anywhere else with Russia. The world knows this, particularly, Putin knows it, and acts accordingly. Why write an article about the impossible? On the one hand, you have an international bully, on the other, an internationally known coward. Bully wins every time! Even a dog with a note in his mouth could create a more vigorous and stronger foreign policy than Obama! One day soon, however, a president will be elected in the United States with backbone and courage. Then, I suspect, Putin will back down soon enough.

  69. The difference is our debt is going down, and we pay our debts. I hope Russia liberates your house one day, then we will see how you feel.

  70. USA hasnt lost any status, China is struggling, Russia struggling even more. Only difference is our citizens aren’t beat into submission and we are not USED to being oppressed . China and Russia citizens have been abused and oppressed so long they dont know any better.

  71. While China violates every nation in the South China sea? China should be ashamed as well picking on little countries and grabbing territory…. hell they are the same as Russia only weaker.

  72. Ukraine asked for help thats why Russia lied and hid who they were? Come now my 6 year old can see that this is a lie. America didnt engineer a coup, Ukraine’s citizens rebelled against a weak leader that succumbed to Russia’s bullying. Still, no one asked Russia for help. As a former soviet state those people would die before they asked Russia to bring it’s military into their country. You comments just show how full of shite you really are. Do the math: Sneak in, lie about being there, deny it in your own country to your own people in state run (manipulated) media outlets does not add up to proud and heroic liberators. Your a joke, just like Vlad Puto and his little man disease.

  73. whats wrong garbage? I see you are cowarding down and hiding the in the states. Why not buy a one-way ticket for you, family and friends to fight ISIS in syria and iraq? You morons are all talks!!! ISISs all over the world are buying tickets to hunt you idiots in syria and iraq. Are you just going to coward down and pack your stuffs and go home?

  74. “God” has nothing to do with this. If you want to bring “God” into the picture, you can blame him for allowing humans, made in “His image,” to do this to each other.

    Who are you to say you’re right and the other side (eastern europeans) are wrong?

  75. “God” has nothing to do with this. If you want to bring “God” into the picture, you can blame him for allowing humans, made in “His image,” to do this to each other.

  76. The Americans engineered a coup, replacing a pro-Russian kleptocrat with one of their kleptocrat stooges.
    Ukrainians asked for Russian help, Russia sent arms and “volunteers.”
    The Americans started the situation with their lies and provocations, so the Russians answered in kind.
    The Russians did a pretty good job on the Third Reich.

  77. Right Iran, ISIS, Hezbollah, they are terrorists Assad has been a sponsor of terrorism for decades. Me I’m calling any one who fights against him a rebel. If you want to play name games that’s on you, but the truth in this matter is their are not a lot of Syrian citizens running around begging for help to keep Assad in power, there are however millions begging for help to rid their country of ALL of the above. You call them whatever you want it doesn’t change what they are….trash. The refugees are fleeing because NO ONE is doing anything to help them, just a 3 way power grab when you get right down to it.

  78. Nothing illegal about it. The request for military help was at the behest of the legitimate and democratically elected president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych after the illegal coup d’ etat by anarchist criminals forced him into exile. If Ukrainians wanted Yanukovych out they easily could have replaced him by democratic held elections. That’s how democracy is supposed to work. The U.S. only likes democracy when it’s in their favor. Western governments need to stop with their attempts of installing puppet proxy politicians and learn to coexist with other governments that they may not agree with.

  79. Oh so your saying we are doing the same as you are in Ukraine? Oh wait there there was NO war until you INVADED their country and LIED about it like the cowards you are. Ever seen a Russian pick on someone their own size? No…me either.

  80. No we need to be humble and admit our president…cabinet and other leaders were wrong and we need to help someone who knows instead of acting like a spoiled child….

  81. so why are you butt hurt about him using is freedom of speech lol. You should go to see your Russian commarades if you don’t like anybody speaking ill of your government you sheep.

  82. Actually I live here in United States. I was here on a student exchange for my Ph.D. Program at usc in Los Angeles. I would love to meet u up to put some senses into your twisted mind. Bring your wife too. American women love real men not some Scandinavia looking pale skinny white boys like u

  83. @sean the Afghans defeated Russia that is a fact you cant change bud. Russia couldn’t do anything in Afghanistan that’s why they put their toys away and went home.

  84. Assad only got 85% of the vote because it was a bogus election. Assad is a scumbag tyrant, he needs to let go of power if he truly loves his country. That being said we Americans should concentrate on ISIS until they are gone then worry about politics in other countries, not fighting both in a conflict that has no end in sight.

  85. Because they are so good at destabilizing wherever they are in large numbers. They have a primitive and violent culture, and are opportunists. Good luck with them.

  86. America should get out of Syria, they have caused more harm in Syria and many other countries. why not America allow independent country to be independent?

  87. Gas is US $1.69.00 at the pump! THANKS POOTY! Last year we were all paying $ 4.69. LMFAO We are begging for cheaper to really gut punch you! Have fun this winter! I would NEVER trade positions with you! LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO HAHAHAHAHAHA

  88. I sure hope not. I fear that Obama might want to remain in power for a lot longer then 8 years. Eight years of him in power is more then we need as it is. No more Barack Hussein Obama after 2016!

  89. Figures some worthless POS like you would make such a comment. Go back to the rock you crawled out from. Loser. POS Like you would hide and cower if someone came knocking at your door. Troll

  90. I am glad it is. Dallas is 64 degrees right now. Halloween is near and I am as American as they come. Enjoy your Russian reality. I love it. Keep us laughing as you deny you are miserable. HAve fun in Syria too. So much for sanction relief. When you collapse again will you still LOVE Pooty? LMFAO WE ALL HOPE SO! Keeps us #1! LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO

  91. Nice, you should pattent this new medicine, your comments trigger diarrhea for those with hard stall it is godgiven. AND probably all that what you write HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  92. When someone has opposite opinion on some particular matter calling that person troll is sign of stupidity and intelectual inferiority. So! I don’t deny that you are stupid!

  93. I had the nerve to confront your laughingstock stupidity. You are beneath ALL Americans and always will be! We are arrogant and will always will be –why? Because we are superior to you all maggot. As and MD with homes in Colorado, Hawaii, Miami, and Dallas, I laugh at all your drivel! If you did hit a nerve I would self medicate. LMFAO LMFAO I write scripts and can do so for myself. LMFAO Enjoy your trailer and beet soup! I will think of you as I drink from a coconut in Miami after November! LMFAO LMFAO Agin stating facts is makes you informed, not smart. If you were smart, you would use your web access to see whats going on in the world and try not to look so stupid.

  94. I hit the nerve? aww your low IQ mental circuits got fried? It happnes when creatures like you thinks that are smart. Keep upvote yourself HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  95. I am skeptical about any election with that kind of majority, but regardless there is no question that a substantial part of the population now is at war against Assad, and in propping him up the Soviets are trying to determine that outcome of that civil war. It is indeed the same trap that we fell into with Iraq, which was one of, if not THE, biggest foreign policy blunders this country has ever made, and one which pretty directly led to ISIS. No argument about that at all, and totally agree that we are still paying for that cluster that we caused. So yes, as bad as Assad is, I don’t think we have any business getting involved in that civil war, BUT, ISIS is a problem, and as with AQ and the Taliban, I think there is something to the idea of trying to nip these fundamentalist extremist armies in the bud. I do not have any particularly good ideas as to how that can be accomplished, and I haven’t seen anyone who does, only varying degrees of simplistic rhetoric and half-thought-out proposals. That is primarily due to the culture and history of the region, which seems to value holding grudges forever and acting violently on those grudges against the group (different ethnicity, different religion, different sect of the same religion) that is the focus of the perceived insult, slight or injustice, no matter how many generations ago the feud started.

  96. If writing facts is making me sound 4 years-old, then WAH-WAH! LMFAO LMFAO Since when should stupid drunk maggots ever let the facts get in the way of a good lie? Is the truth an insult? IT IS IF YOU ARE NOT AWARE IT IS DUE TO YOUR IGNORANCE! IF THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS 2+2=4 and you state over and over it is 5—you look ridiculous and ignorant. Educate yourself on the facts with your web access drunken Russian paid troll! HAVE A NICE WINTER EATING BEET SOUP.And thanks for letting me look at your thumbs up so I can see all yoour other screen names. LMFAO LMFAO The ENTIRE world laughs at you! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  97. YES! WE ARE! But your life is NOT so funny. Use your internet access as a troll to read up and see the news the rest of the world already knows so you do not look stupid posting your garbage that makes EVERYONE laugh at you and your ignorance and stupidity. WINTER IS COMING! HAve fun in the Russian tropical paradise! LMFAO LMFAO

  98. Britain and France declared war on Germany as they had promised Poland. There were no nuclear weapons at the time. Superpowers aren’t going to declare war on each other these days and other countries aren’t going to join in and make themselves targets in a potential nuclear war. The Commonwealth countries are not going to blindly support GB nor the US like they did in 1939 or 1941. Its absurd to think that this conflict in Syria would go global.

  99. YEs, our BF Saudi Arabia will keep those oil prices down until you are BROKE forever and collapse just like last time. Good luck maggot eating beet soup everyday. LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO

  100. If that was the case Hitler would have won at the start of the war idiot. Why do you think the USA is NOT upgrading its nuclear defenses? We have stuff made after the Bomb. We did not send the shuttle up for 34 years (4) times a year to watch monkeys kiss. The atomic bomb is from 1947. You think that is still all we have? LMFAO The Japanese and the world did not know we had it until Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It is VERY safe to say you should wonder if that bomb will go off when you see our NEW TOYS! LMFAO Russia and her planes will break down before launch. You all have real big mouths. In Italy they say “nice pizza, no cheese!” You only have a mouth and puffing fear. When push comes to shove you are in not such a good place. And if EVERYTHING you use in your life today was invented by the USA–how are we dumb? Whats does that make you? A JOKE! Now go eat your daily beet soup and keep chatting it up about how great you are. We can all laugh hysterically. And ALL Russians except paid trolls do NOT have access to the web! HELLO PAID TROLL! USE your web access to find out some real news. You all are dumb because all you do is drink and smoke and talk endless drivel about how great you are. I see misery and coooollld winters and dark grey skies. ENJOY YOUR NASTY COUNTRY AS WE LAUGH AT YOU WHILE WE DRINK FROM COCONUTS ON THE BEACH IN MIAMI THIS WINTER MAGGOT

  101. Yes, Indeed! WWIII as in Religious War. Islam will not relent. They will continue to fight the fight until they will rule the world.

  102. I respectfully disagree. Is shooting down a Pan American 747 with innocents on board something a “benchmark” does to a known super power? Was that really smart? You act as if these middle eastern countries were handing out flowers and weeping and NATO and the USA came in for no reason. I think you need to play your own devils advocate and see what should have NOT been done by these people. All I hear is you are an innocent victim throughout history. I hardly doubt that. I am not looking to argue on line. However, America and the west are great because when we make mistakes we recover and try not to repeat our mistakes. Can you say the same? Have a nice day.

  103. stupid is as stupid does and you my friend are stupid. you live in a fantasy world. let’s just hope things don’t escalate to put your stupidity to the test.

  104. Russia already has what they want in Syria. it’s Obama who’s trying to take that away from them.

  105. Amen couldn’t have said it better. Stop embarrassing the citizens of America who elect you and pay your bills with our taxes!!

  106. Finally Russia is helping Syria to defeat ISIS and it’s other enemies. Between Russia and the USA, which country has been invited and which one is intruding? Who are we to pick and choose who gets to rule other countries?!!

    It wasn’t Russia who put Assad in office. Assad received more than 85% of the vote from the people over the last 2 elections. And unlike the western propaganda would imply the other 15% of the population was not executed for voting for someone else. I say let Syria rule herself.

    Are we going to do the same thing as we did with IRAQ? Pummel Syria and then rebuild her? The net result of our efforts in IRAQ: The birth of ISIS.

    I want the US to have a little foresight by looking into their past meddling mistakes and the results. We can’t force a new ideology on people who do not want it. It’s that simple and we are seen as bullies when we try to change these people. I fear the whole world sees us as a bully police force who cause more innocent deaths than any other country on earth. And while I love my country, they are right! And as an American the truth is embarrassing!

    This Syria situation was a little skirmish due to the death of a teen over graffiti. The Syrian police took it too far and killed the teen. The locals were outraged. Remember Waco? Rodney King? etc. We have our share civil unrest due to police and government screw ups. Do we blame Obama everytime a police officer uses excessive force? Then why do we blame Assad for what happened to the teen who was caught doing graffiti? We have our share of screw ups too! So let Syria rule herself!!

  107. they talk about US trained Rebels!… how many are there, maybe 40?… and can not be trusted at all, waste of weapons, money, and and its just a smoke screen made up from obamas weak lil mind!…

  108. BS…Bush’s agreement called for a SOFA residual force, which Obama did not solidify. Obama “simply left” the ares which DID cause the vacuum filled by ISIS…NICE TRY, liberal Obama-apologist!!!

  109. We toppeled Sadaam…how’d that work? Assad although not ideal may be the best buffer between Iran and Israel going at it. Syria has nothing to offer the US except refugees why waste American tax $$ there?

  110. World War 3.. Yeah right.. More like Russia the Destroy has showed up, and all the guns and problems these people caused in Russia, Russia gets its chance at retribution. Afghans didn’t defeat Russia, only delayed them.. The Children of Abraham vs the Children of Thor. Russia rains from the sky with their lightening.

  111. Somewhat true but it wasn’t Russia who put Assad in office. Assad received more than 85% of the vote from the people over the last 2 elections. And unlike the propaganda would imply the other 15% of the population was not executed for voting for someone else. I say let Syria rule herself.

  112. Mike, if you are in the US, FEEL FREE TO LEAVE! If you are in the US and are able to speak your mind, that’s called freedom of speech. Do you think your Russian commarades can do the same?

  113. I don’t totally disagree, but would point out that Russia helping Assad defeat the groups that want to oust him is equally picking and choosing who gets to rule.

  114. General Patton could see the future and wanted to take them down before they had nuclear capabilities and it would have been a conventional war! If you read “O’Reilly’s killing Patton”. Gen. Patton was taken down because of his reasoning and his military concerns for the future combatting Russia at the time! It is all coming to fruition now! It is too bad that in such modern times we have not found a way to live together knowing we could very well destroy each other and the entire world ! For what? If ever the stage had been set for the ultimate apocalypse this could be it! Interpretations from the Bible are very close and descriptions are very accurate. God Bless us all! ….Just Sayin

  115. Finally Russia is helping Syria to defeat ISIS and it’s other enemies. Between Russia and the USA, which country has been invited and which one is intruding? Who are we to pick and choose who gets to rule other countries?!!

  116. “All the Kingdoms of the world, I WILL GIVE TO YOU, if you will bow down and worship me”—-Satan told Jesus during the Temptation—— Satan could not give anything he wasn’t in control over ——– And Satan laughs at our destruction!

  117. The same ME was peaceful under ottoman’s empire. UK messed it up. Libyans and Iraqis were living a peaceful, happy and decent life until US invades and creates Chaos along with NATO. Libya was a benchmark for african and middle eastern countries before US invasion.

  118. Your denial mode is the reason why people call Americans dumb.

    “Americans do not want a war with a broke country”

    If Russia is broken country, then what is US? utter disaster? Have you seen your national debt. Russia may be economically weaker but not militarily. US will think twice to meddle with russian forces in syria. Russians entered in Syria to crush your backed, trained and funded Jihadists IS and others and to side with legitimate government of syria because no terrorists can be allowed to overthrow the government of nation with the help of foreign powers.

    Russia comes nowhere close to US in terms of killing people.

    “30 years experience having been in the middle east seasoning the troops, and 600 billion a year in military hardware.”

    It doesn’t matter who spends more on military, it only takes one BOMB.

  119. The governor assessment that all of this talk about WW3, is just a bullcrap, no more and no less. Put-in’s little demarche in Syria, is an act of internal politics, an attempt to distract public attention from the sorry ass economic situation which is getting worse by the day. Also his little stint in Dumb-ass is not penning out the gold, instead well armed criminals are going across the border and setting up mafia like enterprises in Rostov and beyond.

  120. There’s so much blood on American hands. Prior to 9/11 and after that. Americans have been at war since their independence. I am very glad that China and Russia are getting organized and refusing to bow down on their knees to US.

  121. ABU DHABI, October 3rd. / TASS /. Number of victims of the shelling of the hospital, “Doctors Without Borders” in the Afghan city of Kunduz has increased to nine. This was reported by 3 October the organization itself.

  128. World War 3 is already happening. It just looks different than the others. World Wars aren’t tagged as World Wars until after the fact. If you look at all the countries involved in this since 2003, AND have been terrorized in any way, I’d say it matches the number of countries involved in 1&2. And this is lasting a lot longer. Just because it moved out of Europe doesn’t disqualify it as a World War.

  129. Please check out the book, “Todays Technology in Bible Prophecy,” by Charles Miller. It was written in 1990 and fits todays circumstances very closely.

  130. It’s not exactly world war 3 simply because russia and the US have been at war for decades already and it probably won’t end anytime soon.

    neither side has the ability to nuke the other into oblivion like the media wants us to think. nuclear war will be long and messy and will not end over-night.

  131. Obama caused ISIS with his withdrawal of troops from Iraq leaving a power vacuum that was quickly filled by by the Al-Qaeda spin-off.

  132. I don’t think the Ruskies want to go there (WW3) unless they plan to use nukes. They are no match for the US and allied countries in spite of their chest pounding.

  133. A lot of dumbasses in here living in the U.S. and criticizing U.S but doesn’t want to leave because of the freedom US has provided for them.

  134. It is called blasphemy, dishonesty, satanic and wickedness when you use Gods name to murder and destroy millions of innocent lives. Their blood will surely fight back, so stop manipulations in the name of God. Even ISIS surprisingly called off prayer when the Russians started pounding them like grinding machines. Can you believe, those blood succkers believe in God? Kindly get some conscience from somewhere, Israeli defender with distorted bible knowledge!

  135. The so called “pro-Moscow rebels”, are also citizens of Ukraine, who had a referendum and 86% of the population voted for the right to speak their indigenous language like it is done in civilized nations and to elect their own governors, not the thieves that Kiev appoints to come and squander their resources for over 2 decades. If 15 million people have no right to have a say in their region, then which human right are we talking about?
    Now back to Syria, Do you know that even if you reorganize fresh elections fifty times Asad will still have the mandate because majority loves him, so why finance a revolution or coup d’etat against legitimate government like you did in Kiev?.
    I think, Russians may be quiet and watching but they are surely not fools.
    You should know by now, “The truth will set you free” they say.

  136. Right! US trained & armed Syrian rebels are actually ISIS elements! Russia is there to ensure ISIS does not rise up in Syria..

  137. Russia is bombing the the US train rebels this are the ones that gave 75% of their weapons to ISIS and most of them have joint ISIS but we keep giving them weapons is our government stupid or what is wrong with them we should stop all the aid to this terrorist and stop interfering on a civil war that is not our concern, maybe for the oil companies or is it that the reason we are interfering

  138. To the West, Russia always has an inferior this or that. Let them try their superior weapons on Russia for the world to confirm their loud-moutheed superiority. I hate the cheap propaganda from NATO! Russia is there to protect its allies, whether ISIS or SIS or US-backed anti al-Assad groups.Why is the US backing forces against a legitimate government of Bashar al-Assad. Aren’t they giving them military aids through CIA? Do they have a legitimacy of deciding for Moscow whom to attack between the two. Waache ujinga. We are in the 21st Century!

  139. The utter arrogance and lawlessness of the US in demanding that the legitimate government of another state step down– in unequivocally violation of the UN charter — is only unremarkable because the world has gotten used to the acts of this rogue nation.

    Not trying to be prissy here, but let’s pause for a second over the room- temperature corpse of international law.

    What is the US trying to accomplish?

    It wants to remove Russia’s ability to “project force” the the eastern Mediterranean, part of Washington’s drive to subjugate every nation on earth to its will. That’s called — freedom.

    Reducing the region to utter chaos, however, will produce same result it obtained in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.

    Of course, giving the terrorists a victory and sending victorious Chechen warriors back to Russia will be a plus. In an act of glaring hypocrisy, the US criticized Russia’s crushing of the Chechen insurgents — who murdered schoolchildren and Russians in Moscow — as a violation of their rights…

    News that Iranian regulars and Hizbollah will join the actual Syrian army to obliterate all these vermin — including the CIA-backed terrorists — is reason to rejoice.

    The fact that Iraq joined the Russian effort is a large, overdue public slap at the US’ criminal record in the area.

    Before it invaded Iraq, its policy was to encourage Iraqis and Iranians to kill each other.

    When one side started winning, it re-enforced the other.

    It’s up to its eagle-neck in the blood of people sacrificed to its mendacious and ultimately insane “strategy.”

    Lavrov was indeed being very diplomatic in his news conference.

    The terms “full of bleep” and “^holes” of course, would be the uncensored way to look at American “strategy.”

  140. We hate war and we say yes for all these will go down and not claim world war 3. All the leaders of us and Russia knows world war will brings great destruction so no will like that to happen and please stop fabricate things.

  141. Putin needs to work quickly for he knows his time is short. The bible speaks of this alliance and what will happen to this alliance when it comes against Israel. It will be destroyed by God. Then we will see the rise of the Kings of the East (China) who will also be destroyed by God for daring to intervene with his covenant.

  142. Fake news. Who is fooling who? It seems that Americans are now taking to propaganda and blackmail.
    The Russians have stated clearly, that Americans are training the rebels that deliver weapons and manpower to IS terrorists. Secondly, Russia recognises only Asad’s administration as the only legitimate government with UN mandate.
    Thirdly, Vladimir Putin stated clearly at the UN General Assembly this week that activities of Pentagon and the US in Syria is illegal and should stop aiding the rebels to overthrow a legitimate government,
    He also asked a question about who doesn’t know what Americans are doing in the middle East after creating a power vacuum in Libya and Iraq, and now they want to do the same in Syria. The Russians have stated clearly, that, it’s not gonna happen, so better prepare for the star wars you have been mongering for. I hope you got the best technologies to run down outdated Russian weapons and planes, which you are always claiming, else things might change earlier than you can even imagine.

  143. It’s almost inevitable at this point. Syria is such a messy situation it’s ridiculous to expect killing will be carried out in an orderly fashion. Syria is the start of something big and ugly, like a boil on your ass cheek that begins deep in the skin and slowly erupts to a head. This is going to bring the US and Russia directly head to head fresh off the frustration of the ongoing Ukraine situation. Prayers for us all.

  144. Russia is doing now what they have been condemning the US and west for years, Killing civilians Ader the Russian troll

  145. God bless you for your comment, in Africa we have an adage that says ” the hunting dog that never listen to his masters voice will end up killed by a fox” you says it the way it is .

  146. Now the whole truth is coming out, ISIS are US trained jihadist, to distrupt the middle east for the sake of Israel, Russian are fighting for the legitimate govt in Syria & the west & US are not happy. Who is the evil of the world? US & the so called west.

  147. Just what Obama wants. I could see this escalating into a war that would cancel the 2016 elections. No doubt Putin will provoke us with an attack on our troops or aircraft.

  148. How you can factor Israel in this equation is beyond me, except for anti-Semitic hatred for the Jewish state. Israel has absolutely nothing to do with the conflict in Syria, nor between the US and Russia.

  149. The US and Russia should mind their own business in their own countries and let the ISIS, Al Quaeda, Al Shaabab and Al whatever kill themselves in the middle east until they learn the importance of peace.

  150. Of course she wants the US to go to war with Russia, mixing some truths with lies. She is a Ukrainian, what do you expect? She is too stupid to realize that if it actually happened, Ukraine will be completely destroyed.

  151. you are a liar I guess your not an American just speaking behind the scene as American But if truly you are an American you are not worthy of being one

  152. Are you sure you are over 50? You sound like a 4 year old. Who cares about what school your kids go who cares about your wife get a life loser and stop hiding behind your monitor and insult people you wouldn’t do in real life. Viva Russia.

  153. the entirety of the middle east is an abomination that should have been deemed irrelevant sand 5o years ago, but because of greed and corruption, continue to be of strategic importance thanks to oil dependence. Without that oil, even the ants wouldn’t care about the plague that is the middle east.

  154. Looks like it might be too late for my liberal friends to learn why peace through strength is the only workable solution. Obama may have gotten us out of the middle-east but look now what his fickle, weak-backboned behavior has wrought. All the bullies have come out to play.

  155. Russia is not trying to avoid war, look what Putin been doing to his country. They want war like the Republicans does. Obama does not want war. Now Russia is stepping in and is undoing what the allied it trying to do to combat ISSI, instead of going after ISSI like the rest of the countries involve, He is destroying what the CIA training rebels who is against Assad, so Assad ask Russia to bomb ISSI. Assad knew where the rebels were at and he saw an opportunity to take care of them, with the help of Russia.

  156. The Honorable President Barack Husein Obama is the best president since 1963. He is the one that made Zionist Organization to think twice. He got his Obamacare, Deal with Iran, and all other deals. He is quiet, deliberate, effectuates what is needed for the American people. This is the President that is from the people by the people and for the people. Of course, this great president is putting a break on the influence of the Zionist Organization who call him monkey, baboon, Muslim, weak,..He is the president and he is very good.

  157. I say fuck it! Let’s do this and show the whole dam world what we are made of. Keep poking the lion and eventually it will bite.

  158. We need to kill Putin to save Peace . Don’t nees another Hitler or tree he Free Woeld need to take out communist all together

  159. Please tell me who is stronger? A strong mouth does not mean you will not get your as (s) kicked. The loud mouths always get kicked, and bad. Sorry you live in a non-reality state of mind. Waiting to hear who is stronger maggot? You can hate us, but the guy that does not respect strength is doomed. You appear to be just that maggot.

  160. Is what I stated not true? We have to look at those ghost costumed women. And do not give me that garbage that it is our religion. If it is, wear your sheet too. Heads are chopped off, and you all do stink. Is telling the truth not allowed now in the world?! Laughing at you being like a bunch of farm animals. Truth hurts! OUCH

  161. You must be little children who think their father is the strongest man on earth. The frustration comes when that father meets another man who is stronger. Honestly, are you under ten years in age? Please have your parents supervise your TV shows.

  162. Conversely, Russians will increase their forces in Syria. Asking for annihilation of Israel? Yes. This a good way to do it. In every war Jews complained Six Million Jews were killed. In 1919 Jews said Six Million Jews were killed. In 1948, Jews said Six Million Jews were killed. Now who ever will be left will say, Fifteen Million Jews were killed in say 2015. This time it be right.

  163. You wont have a chance to eat your words when russia or n. korea or iran launch on your city. Or launch on somebody else’s city and wind up hitting yours. Dont worry. You wont be missed.

  164. The US of A is in denial after loosing its elite status worldwide and still trying to promote its hegemony through imperialism and military expansionism. This empire of dirt is run by zionists bureaucrats cruel warmongers that only cares about their foolish personal interests. They will keepom trying to instigate war until Putin speaks and then it’ll be too late to listen. Mutual destruction is assured.
    The founders of this country would be ashamed of what we the people have become and dissapointed about the way our criminal politicians are running the show.
    God has given everything, and then we let the devil take over.
    I am an american citizen and you will be surprised that the public opinions is increasingly siding with russia after realizing that our failed, unconstitutional, illegitimate and foolish foreign policy has ruined the country over the years.
    We are afraid of loosing our elite superpower status, yet we are already running behind. Everything in this country is going to flames, this sucker is going down hard. Shame on us the people, we’re even worse than our politicians and deserve the worst for that matter

  165. You are a laughing matter. Mentally challenged hateful Zionist. I am the author of Theorem 1 and Corollaries 1-6. You need to analyze the theorem and its corollaries. The Zionist Organization should be forbidden to operate within the United States as it is dangerous to Americans.

  166. Imag you shouldnt be allowed to comment. You’re a bigot you’re a (n)a(zi) you should be committed to a mental hospital for being a threat to yourself and others. You should be banned from the internet. Mommy should take your computer away. You should be in a rubber room. You should be put in a straight jacket. You are off your meds. You’re paranoid. You’re delusional.

  167. Start a war with Russia because they are doing what we should have done?
    The experience with Sadam was not enough lesson for USA? Why in the world would we want to repeat it with Assad now?
    He is the only one that can keep all those muslim factions in line.
    Only someone worse than them can keep them in line and from killing each other.
    USA should applaud Putin for giving us a ‘way out’ and keeping face. We don’t have to change our mind and help Assad, just let Putin do it.
    Yeah, he’ll be a hero for Libya, but USA has freed already Afghanistan and Irak, and we are heroes with Saudi Arabia already.

  168. The brainwashed liberals are dIckrIdIng Obama till kingdom come, same way the conservatives did Bush more than a decade ago, they are both the same mindless buffoons they accuse each other of being, yet are too dumb to see it, I hate to say it but the “best” option for president so far is Trump, at least he wont go to war over ISIS, Fiorina and Bush want to, and Hillary as her husband before her wants to make things go boom, and disregard what Americans really want/need, at best she’ll burn some Christians like Bill did in Waco, at worst she’ll actually start WW3.

  169. Agree to a certain limit. It has been our fault to pursue the Zionist Organization attempting to establish the Kingdom of Zion where non-Jews are non-Human and non-Jews are beasts. Obama has been attempting to distance himself from the Zionist Organization which seems to have stronghold on most Republican Congressmen whose legislation is too dangerous for America and the American people. Their legislation is a liability to the American people to benefit Zionists/Jews only. Simple example: Think of no deal with a country that boycotts Israel. Originally worded no deal with Europeans who favor boycott of Israel. The president signed the legislation. Look what is happening in Kuwait. Kuwaiti airline refused a person with Israel passport to travel on its planes. Under the boycott law Kuwait is an enemy of USA. I thought Kuwait is a close partner economically with USA now it is an enemy. Or else. Kuwait must pay the person with Israel passport a handsome amount of money in addition to have Kuwait renounce its association with Arab countries. USA is forcing Israel on Arabs. Now if Kuwait says “No,” what could USA do? Force all Arabs to recognize their enemy as a master? USA put itself between the rock and the hard place. I called our Republicans in Congress who are not Jews as “bitches” and the Jews as “pimps” and the money passing to the “bitches” as “vaseline.” The “vaseline” is provided by heads of the Zionist Organization namely Adelson and Koch’s brothers, the billionaires. Because “bitches” don’t take a bath, they “stink.”

  170. The whole system has been bought and sold already. It’s bigger than any president or body of lawmakers and they’re all in on it.

  171. They will, however, fight over the oil that those towelheads are living on top of. What’s at stake here is more than just oil, though. The future of the Dollar as the international currency and the only currency in which oil is bought and sold. Iraq tried to sell oil in Euros in 2000 so we leveled them in ’03. Libya tried to establish an African gold backed currency and you see what happened to them. And now Iran is trading oil to China for gold, cutting the Dollar out of the equation entirely. You’d better believe the bankers would be more than happy to send people off to die to protect their profits.

  172. And oh enlightened one…Does Russia think invading Ukraine and going into Syria warrants everyone to sit back and clap? It appears Russia is giving everyone a reason on their own does it not? Americans do not want a war with a broke country, neither does Europe. But this Putin is not a wise man. At no time is AMERICA instigating a war. But, we will fight if they keep it up. In reality, no one wants a WW 3 but it appears to be unstoppable. So, might as well do it as quickly as possible. And btw, I am glad we are prepared. 30 years experience having been in the middle east seasoning the troops, and 600 billion a year in military hardware. People can hate America, but we love our weapons, especially now.

  174. The very basic problem is that the U.S. has wanted to instigate war with Russia for awhile, and this provides them with the excuse/opportunity to do so… even if Russia is trying to avoid it.

  175. You shouldn’t be allowed to comment about world events until you can speak in a intelligent and comprehensive manor.

  176. Steve parker, which is of course a made up up name, is a bored clueless lightheaded republican modafucka who needs to get a life on friday night

  177. You need to read Tsun Tzue “The Art of War.” People go to war for profit. Miscalculation of the enemy can mean death to a country. We did that in the Middle East and went to verge of bankruptcy. The only thing that saved us from death is our might militarily and economically. We are the worst debtor country but we do not let debt-collectors own us; we actually own them. They are afraid of our military might. So they would be afraid of collecting their debt from us in a military fashion. By holding their money with us, we are holding them at bay. Who could say “The King is nude?” Only a child with no sense of fear could say it and the King goes into covering.

  178. There will be no WW3. Its the media who will keep hyping things here and making money out of nothing. Talking about ww3 is nonsense. It can never happen.

  179. Obama and Hillary are so stupid ! they are willing to risk world war 111 for the freaks in the middle east, they should build the wall stop letting people in, and mind there own damn business, if the middle east wants to behead all there people that is there fing problem not ours. I say fk them, let Putin take over the job and do what he wants we don’t need it. they hit us with 9/11 and still US kisses these beasts arses. WTF

  180. Russia’s just like our ally ,Turkey. They said they’d go after ISIS and ended up attacking the Kurds and by proxy helping out Assad. And you have to put Iraq in the alliance with Iran, Syria and Hezbollah.

  181. How can anyone call it World War 3? Over what? Syria? It doesn’t even make sense. What does a victory look like? Who wins? The US going to invade Russia or Syria and do what? Stupid article.

  182. I going to start off by saying I don’t know much about wars even though I come from a military family (I’m sorry I don’t know much about it)
    But if Russia is taking care of the problem then what’s our problem with it?
    These are very violent people that want us dead so I am not understanding the problem
    That’s less of them coming here
    And less we have to worry about “offending” with our ways
    Please if I am wrong on this please comment politely
    Thanks

  183. Folks, not to worry, there will not be a world war three under Obama’s watch. He will allow Russia, and others to grab what ever they want, because he wants America to become just one of many.

  184. Lmfao. But when he finally fires his gun you are 1 dead group of head chopping maggots. Ask the Japanese. They talked smack just like you. Beware and please take a shower and get deoderant on. Why do you guys always smell so bad?

  185. I was in the military when the Soviet Union fell. As a young officer, we studied the former Soviet Union’s strategy for nuclear war and their strategy illustrates our weakness.

    The Soviet high command was convinced that the United States could be destroyed with about a dozen nuclear weapons. All they needed to do was take out some refineries and our biggest ports and the ensuing continental wide famine would do the rest. Our plan was to nuke everything.

    Which plan is smarter? Dead people don’t need to eat and killing off a nation of farmers isn’t that easy as the Soviet system pretty much forced everyone to have a plot of land outside of the city as the stores were often short of good produce. We, on the other hand, would collapse into chaos if food didn’t appear in grocery stores. The government would have a much bigger problem on its hands than the Soviet Unions as hundreds of millions of people were running in circles looking for food.

  186. The big banks are in desire of more war interest payments. Another large war would be unfortunate but a necessary evil, for the bottom line.

  187. This is not good. But I will give Putin/Russia for forcefully standing up for what he/they believe, and showing leadership. Obama on the other hand…………..

  188. Yes I will agree with you that the middle east is a mess.
    Here comes the bad news bro it’s going to get a lot worse.
    The are a lot of good Muslims in the ME They fear the fanatics also.

  189. Zionist pushing America into oblivion. Cheer America in to destroy America. Obama is much wiser than that. He is the one who can say “No” to Zionist Organization operating to shed American blood and treasure for Jews only. That is why the Zionist Organization call him monkey, Muslim, and weak president. A policeman who swings his gun everywhichway is not a policeman; he is a mad man waiting to be placed in straight jacket.

  190. You better hope you are correct. I’m in no hurry to take on both China, Iran and Russia. Our invincible military was unable to pacify Afghanistan even though they were fighting people living in the 7th Century. Funny how all that opium popped up as well.

  191. If America and Russia,nobody wins and everyone dies. The Earth will then be as dead and barren as the surface of the Moon.

  192. Obama or anybody else cannot do anything,the time given to us as humans is over,we forgot our purpose for which we were created and established on this earth,we are arrogant we are proud we think we are controlling the universe, we care about our welfare our retirement our benefits and we forget about others.the time is up, we humans have reached the end of the line,no foreign policy can change humanity’s destiny.

  193. I hear you. However we can all agree the middle east is a mess and has been for 2000 years. The only way to ever stop this would be genocide. Why do these maggots want to live if all they do is fight constantly? Is there any way this will ever stop? Or, are Muslims just weird and mad all the time and fight? Please enlighten me.

  194. Russia wants war? LOLOLOL

    USA literally stands for WAR, bring it on boys! 90% of USA history is shrouded in war, look who’s still on top.

  195. Steve,
    The Saudis biggest fear is the shait Muslims and they are more tolerant of different faiths.The Saudi are Sunni Muslims which is ISIS.
    Now Assad is a (shait) protects the Christians in Syria.The Sunnis burn
    their church and beheads them. Who are we better off with?

  196. If one has homes in Dallas, Breckenridge, Co., Hawaii, and Miami—a Gulf Stream IV, and a great wife of 31 years and (2) kids at Stanford, is that a good enough life for you maggot paid trash troll communist? LMFAO You are beneath me and always will be. My life is what you dream of. Better buy some lotto tickets or go to Macau. I love my life, I am sorry you stepped in it. This is the only way a maggot trashy dude like you would ever be even get close enough to talk to me. Enjoy your maggot existence. I am so happy I NEVER have to worry about you with no life living next to me, would NEVER happen. LMFAO LMFAO

  197. Coordinating flight information??? Since when did ISIS get advanced warplanes and pilots to fly????….How about this, anytime you see another aircraft in the air, its a friendly. Damn these war games they play with our taxes and BS spending claiming to protect are freedom are nothing which is nothing more than profiteering by warmongers and wanna be elected officials. Its time people stand up and say enough. Go fight your wars on some deserted island and have fun with your weaponry and be sure to feed Lockheed and the other A-holes an opportunity to profit while us real citizens try and support our families and enjoy a short life on this God forsaken rock….

  198. Oh, please, nobody is going to fight WWIII over a bunch of towelheads. All they are to the superpowers are convenient targets to test out the new weapons systems. And now is a great time to give the CIA backed rebels some new surface to air missiles to see if they can take down the new Russian planes. The Russians won’t mind, they are curious too.

  199. Assaad, Putin, Xi, Kim yung Un, etc. Any President that kills his own people in any country, shuts down the web/internet on his people, and imprisons anyone disagreeing with them is a psychopath, would you not agree?

  200. No one bombed Syria. Things have changed have they not? Plans are 1 thing, applying those plans are something else. Do you want to move to Syria or another country? Then shut up and quit whining sissie. I support all Americans when dealing with dictators dude. Obama is the 1st black dude I have seen that keeps his cool.

  201. No, I respectfully disagree. I think the Saudi’s listen to us because we defend them against all the Gulf States that hate them. They are a muslim version of Israel. We protect both. And the Saudi’s are not too happy with us right now. Bribes go on all over the world, but pal, no one tells the USA what to do. You know that.

  202. I think the Russian propaganda machine is out of control. It would not be a good Idea for Russia, and American as well. If it does come down to that then the term MAD would apply. As Both nations have the capability to destroy the planet 5 times over the end result is Mutually Assured Destruction. Russia has a few other bad places where nukes would be coming in from to move it beyond the assured destruction to total destruction.
    So no matter what type of problem happens be sure that the US will be watching and reacting

  203. Uh… They have intercontinental ballistic nuclear missiles….. On land, in the air and hidden at sea. You’re insane if you think the US wouldn’t be destroyed.

  204. You’re either a fool or just ignorant. Russian subs are like ours, always ready, You cannot deter a SLBM, It is too close to proximity when launched and there is no way to stop them, On both sides! Mutual destruction

  205. Thing is Russia was invited by whom? Assad? He doesn’t even control a third of his country so Who is really running Syria. Not Assad!

  206. I’m afraid the Free Syrian Army is not distinct from Al Qaeda. They have fought alongside Al Nusru and IS many times, as our media has begrudgingly admitted. Our government has deliberately armed Jihadists. By the way, Assad is the internationally recognized government of Syria, which makes Russia’s action legal – and ours illegal. Of course, such legalities are just trifling matters as World War 3 dawns. Don’t expect to live much longer. Our provocation of Putin is heading towards what humanity’s long feared…mushroom clouds.

  207. The U.S. does not need more ground, as you say, in the Middle East! Assad tyrannical leadership which has murdered hundred of thousand of his fellow citizens has escalated this war not the US or the French, etc. The support by other tyrants Putin, Irans Khomeini, etc. is a necessity if they want to protect their own controlled societies. This could bring it all down . Freedom will win over those who try to suppress their citizens!

  208. When the French and Britain calved out their possessions after defeating the Ottomans, they purposely dispossessed the Kurds, so that they could use them to destabilize the region later. The Kurdish population was dispersed and families separated when borders were re-drawn that created nations such as Jordan, Iraq, and Syria. .From Henry Kissinger of the Nixon administration, to every U.S. administration that followed, the Kurds were set up against U.S. adversaries. And, that is why Saddam used SARIN GAS and cut off water supply to the Iraqi Kurds. And they are reviled in Turkey too.

  209. OMG… people are stupid. There will never be a WW3 with Russia. The war would last about 2 weeks after we decimate their entire airforce the first week. Nukes… yeah. Lets talks about that. Theirs would never leave the ground.

  210. Steve,
    nobody is saying America is awful but you have to admit that most of the politician and the CIA are bought and paid for by the Saudis and Qataris . This coming from army veteran who did a tour in Iraq 2003.

  211. My question is have you ever been to a third world country? The answer is probably not, and we warmongers are what is keep your happy ass free so that you can give your opinion. Opinions are like assholes everybody has one and they stink. The sad thing about it is that we will continue to send our sons and daughters to protect pansy’s just like you. I wish that little rat bastards like you would go instead of some of our young soldiers, then and only then would I even think about listening to you.

  212. I love this war . . . we use a million dollar missile to take out a $100 pick up truck. Let the Russians blow up some Arab bad guys for awhile.

  213. Is there anything left of Syria to even be fighting about, haven’t all of the people left. All cities are in ruins and we are there flirting with WW3 with a guy with a power trip going on .

  214. Can’t trust them ,sooner or later those missiles will be in the hands of Al Qaeda or ISIS ,same like Osama Bin Laden when he was hired by Ron Reagan to fight the Russians in Afghanistan then used them on the Americans

  215. FIRST BASHAR AL-ASSAD, THEN PALESTINIANS ON WEST BANK AND GAZA TO REQUEST RUSSIAN AID
    By Aviroce

    The atrocious savages are so because the Palestinians are defenseless.

    If you read my articles from twelve years ago, you will find that I am the one who advocated a treaty between Iran and Russia and a similar one between Iran and China. I concluded then that the issue of nuclear Iran would be no issue at all. All parties will be afraid to engage in total destruction or human annihilation. Although the atrocious savage Jews dismiss that, the fact of the matter if these savages make the mistake Spain made with its undefeatable Armada, then the savages will become no more. Since that would be welcome to humanity, the savages will abide by mutual existence or meet a certain death and destruction fitting their personality and greed. The Iran-USA+ deal was made possible by the implicit treaties I advocated. So that Israel became more isolated and more condemned. Soon totally boycotted.

    The United States and the Rogue state of Israel should think twice before continuing this madness. Failure in Syria is destined to withdrawal from the Middle East. Why?
    Russian planes are active in the Syrian skies because American and atrocious savage Jew planes are there. I understand that the PM of the atrocious savages went to Moscow to get clarification of Savage Militant’s mission and Russian mission in Syria. Also Putin visited President Obama to discuss the involvement in Syria. So all parties have been notified. It takes collision between a Russian plane and an American plane/atrocious savage plane before shootings start and we do not know when would that end if it really does. There is no doubt Russia will stay in Syria. So it is a question who is going to lose his mind. If Russia is safe in Syria and USA’s planes in the hands of Americans or atrocious savages quit their atrocities , then Russia would become the needed friend in Syria. This needed friend may be asked by the Palestinians to send them planes to fight against the atrocious savage Jews. If a Syrian request is good, then a Palestinian request will be very good. Imagine Russian planes landing on the West Bank or Gaza Strip! They would land at the request of the Palestinians. Now the savages will get mad and use their atomic bombs. But then only three Nuclear bombs over Israel will send it into oblivion . Bombing Tel Aviv would be a preferred path. Keep in mind, defeat of the Armada rendered surrender of colonies to the English. Israel may be delivered to the Russians and then back to the Palestinians. You think USA will care about Israel? You damned right. USA will not give a darn about Israel. Israel is a menace to the human race and should be delegitimized.

  216. OKAY Alan…. I am an American that is in his Mid — 60s’ (Which basically Disqualifies me from any feedback from Liberals, Generation Xers, Millienials… etc., etc., etc., ) The BEST Action that should be taken and any of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the Pentagon would concur with this solution : The U.S. Needs to station Squadrons of B –52J Stratofortresses — in Nato Countries in Central Europe. Such as Aviano A.B. in Italy, Incirlik A.B. in Turkey, Ladguesis A.B. in the Azores (a Portuguese protectorate ), Rhine – Main A.B in Germany Nicosea A.B in Cyprus , ROTA A.B. in Spain. Some KC –135 (Tankers ) at Diego Garcia A.B. off the s.w. Indian Coast, Rhine – Main A.B. Germany,Mildenhall R.A.F.B., United Kingdom The Dutch A.B in Vandoorf Neth. A Polish A.B. in Warsaw Poland. Now… We have ALL of the ” HIGH GROUND ” chess Pieces on the Global Board… The B — 52 js’ From all bases in the frey need to maintain an “ARKLITE B — 52 ” Strike 18 Hours per Day for a ‘ few weeks ‘.. On the “great caliphate ” in Western Iraq and most of Syria. Either the U.S. nor the (Soviets ) Russians Need to prop up 2 Failed groups that will acheve absolutely NOTHING in Syria but leaving the country as a ” big Smoking Hole in the Middle East ! ” Believe you Me… these “ARCLITE ” sorties would Clean up all of the Middle East Islamic schist !! (It Worked during the Vietnam war… and it brought the North Vietnamese to the Paris Peace Tables.. wicked Fast !! ) However — since we have president OBUMSTEAD as C.in C. … well The U.S. is attempting to ‘negotiate from a “Point Of Low Weakness..’. rather than a ‘ High , Optimum Point of Strength! ‘ YEP…Ol’ Vlademieres’ Warplanes, technicians, added to the Iranian Boots on the Ground will assure the same old Goal of (Soviet ) Expansionism !! Do Tell !!

  217. Ugh! Ugh! We need go to war, get more American killed to make lots money for military industrial complex!! Woosy Obama try peace and diplomacy and bring troops home…me no like woosy boy Obama…me want war! UGH UGH!!!

  218. We don’t need to look around to know where the US has not solved any problems but created more by supporting and Arming Anti Govt Elements in Various Countries in the Gulf Region.Supporting Elements of outfits that want’ to over throw Legitimate Govts and their Rulers means Supporting them to disrupt and create Chaos and social unrest.War and Mass migration are the results of this.

  219. I hope now that the Russians are involved, the U.S. should tell friends (free Syrian army) to stand down while the Russians are doing their part in targeting the ISIS let the Russians finished the ISIS and if they succeed then that’s the time the free Syrian Army should strike back so that there will be one target only (Assad and Russians), plain and simple stand down and wait and the Russians will definitely back away just like what happened in Afghanistan specially the Russians are in a deep deep recession and they have no cash flow to finance the war effort it won’t take a year and the Russians will leave Assad because of shortness of resources…..And the cry out loud people of Russian will totally demand the Russians not to further involve and in get the hell of of Syria.

  220. Why don’t we just let Russia have the whole Middle East? Let them drain their economic and personnel resources trying to deal with that mess. We should just pull out completely and become self-reliant for our energy needs (Republican ideal – economic self-reliance, right?). Then Israel can have a nuclear war with Russia and we can sit on the sidelines and laugh and laugh and laugh… Out.

  221. LMFAO LMFAO I know, poor America is just an awful country! I n fact so awful everyone even you wants to move here. No one wants freedom and a good family and money! They all want to live in the gross countries, not America! LMFAO IDIOT MAGGOT

  222. “What a news! Isn’t he the Pres?”

    – Since it’s obvious you just woke up or crawled out from under you servile Russian bridge… Assad is the dictator for a VERY small portion of the country. Something that is about to change to an even smaller portion. :-)

  223. Did the CIA reveal Watergate? Clinton and Lewinsky? Bush and Cheney? I guess in your delirium you think ANYONE who does not think like you (the maggot) that we are uneducated and Republican? LMFAO I will put my Cal Berk BS MS chemistry/Molecular Biology Harvard MD up against your diplomas you stupid maggot SOB! Put 50k up with JP Morgan Chase and we will let the most educated guy keep the money! Press there too with cameras! Shut up low life maggot troll who is paid a joke paycheck to spew drivel numb nuts.

  224. YEP… This Ones’ Gonna’ Probably Be ” … HELL TO PAY … !! ” If you’re Not right with JESUS CHRIST as your PERSONAL Saviour…. Do Not ; I Repeat… DO NOT neglect to accept Him into your Heart… This Very Day !!

  225. The one will stop Putin will be the Creator of the Universe. Read Ezekiel and see what happens to the King of the North.

  226. When world war 3 breaks out they can send your daughters and sons to the front lines all you warmongers just itching to go to war at the drop of a hat go for it your part of the problem in this world and we dont need you so get to it the sooner the better and when you all die along side the greedy wealthy pushing the propaganda then maybe then the world will be a better place to live .

  227. ANOTHER ” Red Line “? WITH the Ball less leadership the United States currently Has? Good Luck with that one; lol. This country has NEVER been weaker in the ENTIRE history of the United States than we are RIGHT NOW.

  228. I would say arm pro USA syrian rebels with anti-air craft cannons so they can defend themselves against Russian attacks. PERIOD.

  229. well Steve you just proved with your last reply that you are one of many stupid uneducated arrogant american brainwashed(probably republican too) C*nts that think world is revolving around USA.
    Go watch CNN and FOX they will give you news you like to hear. BIGOT

  230. It should be pointed out to Russia that they are a part of the problem and not the solution, give them 72 hours to clear all military personal and hardware from Syira, if not clear the skies of Russian aircraft and leave the Russian ground forces for the rebels.

  231. I love how the US is bombing countries left and right and is alarmed when Russia starts bombing terrorists. Or how about China once only discussed using a drone to kill a major Southeast Asian drug kingpin responsible for killing some Chinese policemen and the US goes ape-crap over a discussion over options. Yeah no one has ever used a drone to kill someone before. China is so barbaric to even discuss it.

  232. The so-called “rebels” are Al-Qaeda militants, you dope. Let this sick in: there are no “moderate” rebels in Syria! They are all just as crazy as ISIS, and even working with ISIS in many instances. Russia and China are going to do the job that the U.S. cannot and is unwilling to do, essentially because the U.S. started this mess for a very specific reason, i.e. to obtain more ground and power in the MIddle East. Wake up!

  233. Russia has it right. No need to speculate, What Americans need to understand is that Almighty God is allowing Russia to stabilize the so called War. Rest assure God is always about coming to the aid of the oppressed. And The American administration has done its Job of starting these Wars for their Handlers. Strange that this hidden Hand has been around this Long and you never know who they are. Almighty God created this earth and he will not let Man destroy it. Watch him work, Watch how he will Confuse the Nations ,I mean the Hidden hand of those who know not God. Remember He watches over his Word to perform it. He won’t use Bombs.

  234. Hmmm We did not send that shuttle up for 35 years to watch monkeys kiss. We did not show the world atomic bombs until Pearl Harbor. Start something and get to see the new stuff. LMFAO Then nuclear will be a joke. Why you think we do not build anymore and do not update the old ones. We have some really neet stuff to use on you. Since 1947 nothing but A bombs? LMFAO Did not think so!

  235. Whatever race you happen to be, or religion you happen to follow the spotlight should be on how the Zionists continue to manipulate humanity. WAKE UP!

  236. it is difficult to trust anything about any leader in usa mainstream media – the current administration tends to lie about everything – the usa has one main strategy, that of dis-crediting a leader and then a coup/regime change, and almost always bombing every square inch of that country – so how do we know assad is evil if our only source is our main stream media and our current corrupted administration ?

  237. ahem.. mhhhmmm.. Steve… the Russkies have an atomic thingy… so do the Chinese, the Iranians and the N. Koreans… those countries do not need approval from their congresses to throw their bombs away.. meanwhile in the UK, Norway, Sweden, Germany and France, their congresses would not ever give their vote to join in a useless war.. that would leave the States ALONE and these countries would then reap the benefits of seeing a new thug with new rules… it comes with a new guy winning the fight.. everybody runs to align to his new master’s interests… India is playing a wait-and-see while the Pakis are not taking sides, just having the US fight their war vs. al Qaeda so that thier resources are untouched… so, inciting a 3rd World war right is not at all crazy on the part of the russkies…

  238. Empty phrases, without substance. There will no be WW 3 over Syria. Syrian army will continue liberation of the country from foreign invaders, this time with air support of Russian air force. Liberation of land will go step by step. All illegal aremd groups will be disarmed, or killed, regardless who is their sponsor and protector, USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, or anybody else.
    Every armed man within borders of Syria, non belonging to legal security structures of Syrian government in Damascus, will be treated as a terrorist, and killed at the spot. Ground offensive of Syrian army will follow Russian air strikes, in tight coordination. Priority will be given to Idlib province, recently occupied by Turkish troops. They will be wiped out, and Syrian government will put Turkish border and crossings under control. Erdogan cries and threats will not help. Aggression against peaceful neighboring country will not pay off. All money invested by Turkey into Syrian opposition will go to sewage pit. Liberation of Syria will go on until last armed foreign terrorist is eradicated, killed, disarmed, or pushed out of country. USA will be coordinated with actions of liberation with short program “Stay out of Syrian borders”. USA will not have any problem with flights over Syria, the whole Syria air space will be no fly zone, for USA, Turkey, and other aggressor states. USA invested in regime change in Damascus $ 5 billion, and miserably failled. Huge losses will suffer Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, the main supporters of Islamic State, and a variety of terrorist groups, spread throughout Syria. Syria will be free again.

  239. what had the USA to do there in the first place? now all over sudden it is =your enemy, the IS, is also our enemy= so you are our friend=? hypocrites. and i am sure `russia also has learned from Afghanistan and Chechnya and will not be drawn into a long ground war. and definitely this is `not the beginning of a 3.world war. stop publishing such crap.

  240. I know, America single handily is responsible for all the gross people in the middle east. I thought the middle east has been doing this sort of thing for 2000 years maggot? Does a countries President that kills 260,000 of his own people kinda cause ISIS? LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO MAGGOT IDIOT! LMFAO ISIS WANTS ASSAD DEAD. I think the USA should join ISIS right now if that is what it takes. Maybe then they will not chop off our heads.

  241. Martin, Israel has nothing to do with the creation of ISIS. On the other hand Israel is behind the formation and path of Hurricane Joaquin.

  242. Putin wants to resurrect the old USSR which means avenging the embarrassment of the Cuban Missile Crisis which its anniversary begins the 16th. Besides projecting strength and sticking it to Obama a crisis will be started so that Putin will use it as a tool to negotiate the removal of sanctions over the Ukraine and to show the world how strong they are. All of their military moves of late were to show their ability to project power. Best we keep our carrier groups separated and not clustered in port. It’s the winds of war. I also believe hezbollah will start with Israel and hide near the Russians for cover.

  243. The USA is (fact) in better shape than anyone else militarily, as is Europe. Better go heads up now then wait for things to change. All I heaR FROM Russia is a bunch of big mouths trying to scare anyone with their gross broken equipment. All though they have nuclear, they would have to use it immediately because everything else is garbage.

  244. they are. puuuu sie white guys do not fight. They are getting high and dropping out of school. The illegals make up a large portion of the military. AND BTW, it is 13 million idiot

  245. No. NOOOOOOO!!!!! This isn’t Afghanistan of the 1980’s. The missiles would quickly find their way into the wrong hands, and we would soon find American aircraft coming under fire from them.

  246. Cia controlled media! Free press! LMFAO Your government controls the media! LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO MAGGOT TROLL! In fact–you are the only people as paid trolls that get to use thw web! It is blocked to everybody else to keep them stupid! OR ARE YOU SOOOOO STUPID MAGGOT YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW THT! LMFO LMFAO

  247. Yes the Russians were invited by a guy that has killed 250,000 of his own people. No one in the world likes those 2! Maybe we should have a war right this minute. The US and Europe have been ready for some time. Those 1950s russian broken airplanes and a SMALL fleet of advanced planes will not cut it. Lets go! Lets see who wins.

  248. Since when are towel heads not laughed at? Nothing but a bunch of non-deodorant wearing, smelly, head choppers, living like man did 2000 years ago! How funny the guys wear Abercrombie and Fitch and make their women wear a black “ghost” costume! LMFAO Imagine western women being told to wear that garbage! They would tell you what to do with that sheet!

  249. I never thought I would say this but the Russians are doing the right things regardless of their motives and Obama and Israel who have created ISIS are on the wrong side morally and politically. Since Obama refused to provide arms to the good guys in that region like the Kurds, Egypt, Jordan to fight the bad guys those ISIS Muslim terrorists I hope the Russians will play their cards right and help arm the right people there to fight evil.

  250. Please don’t blame the the US citizens, they are under the spell of the CIA controlled media and they really don’t see the big picture.

  251. Yep, you got that right. It goes strait to the petrodollar, but actually even deeper (as I am sure you know). Forget about trying to make that point here in the MSM, you are surrounded by sheep grazing on the fodder thrown to them by big brother.

  252. “The U.S. refused to comply with the request and the American air campaign in Syria is continuing as usual” later head lines to another article covering ww3 will likely read “but we tried to work together, Russia is just impossible to control”

  253. Thing is Russia has the right and was invited there US terrorist are not bring in the S-500 and blow them out of the sky, and nuke the mainland!

  254. ISIS is a CIA created and funded entity. The United States wanted to remove Assad under the guise of fighting ” Terrorism ” The Russians; being close allies to the Syrians; decided to call BS on the U.S. Bluff.

  255. And you know the Illegals will go fight ..for the chance to live free here…so as funny as that comment was intended to be…its a true fact…on the other hand, we need to pull out all rebels we back and let ISIS deal with the Russians..

  256. America has no business being in Syria be it proxy or otherwise. Have we learned nothing from history? Should an American plane get shot down over Syria, their blood is on President Obama’s hands. If Americans wher fighting a civil war and Syria was flying bombing sorties over California in support of one side, I sure the heck would be trying to shoot them out of the sky. What makes us (Americans) exempt from this concept?

  257. Uh Andy; have you been smoking something? ” Putin Is Weak Now ” Its the other way around. You might be listening too closely to the Propaganda; Misinformation; Misdirection; and pure BS coming from the American Media Spin & Smear Machine a.k.a. The Mainstream Media.

  258. Russia, Iran, and other countries would not have been involved in Syria if US president HUSSEIN Obama is not weak and useless with his foreign policy. All these problems are Obama’s own doing.

  259. He’ll have to clean up the mess the Halfrican has made for the U.S. these two terms he’s infested the White House.

  260. “U.S.-Russia Clash In Syria: The Beginning of World War 3” Nothing to worry about as long as the Halfrican is in the White House. He’ll just continue to bend over and grab the ankles so Russia has no worries and there will be no threat of war. When Trump is president in 2016 Russia will have worries.

  261. You are correct. This is the exact reason he will not succeed in his bid for the Presidency. Rand is spot on when it comes to America’s involvement in Syria.

  262. What’s funny is how the Muslim leaders in those countries are so against western ways but they’re allying with an atheist (Putin). I’m sure China and North Korea is slithering somewhere in this midst to ensure the U.S. loses in this ensuing war…yes, it’s imminent. I’ll go a step even farther and say this whole ordeal was step up to engage the U.S. in war as a distraction while THE MAIN GOAL IS TO ANNIHILATE ISRAEL and disable its allies. Can we say this may be the first stage for the battle of Armageddon???

  263. One thing Washington continues to ignore, one rather obvious factor, is that the Syrian Rebels are radical Muslims who ARE NOT OUR FRIENDS. We have been backing the wrong side, and we’re doomed to failure.

  264. ” has the permission of UN security Council? No. So get out of Syria ”

    – Putin doesn’t have permission from the Security Council either. :-)

    pace requiescat, Ivan!

  265. “Get your long nose from our internal businesses yanks!”

    – Then stop killing Ukrainian kids, Horst Wessel you servile Russian nazee. Enjoy the war! I’m going to make popcorn for the inevitable youtube videos of Moscow’s mushroom cloud. :-)

  266. “They have many hundreds of missiles on mobile launchers,”
    – No… they don’t. Never did. Perhaps a more politically neutral source of information is needed? May I suggest FAS or Jane’s?

    “These would be underway before Moscow would be hit”
    – Not hardly. Remember a Cessna landing in Red Square?

    “Russia feels quite free now”
    – yes they do… and much like their 1938 German counterparts who also felt quite free, Russia will force us to destroy them.

    ” I’ve been there”
    – Obviously you’re a Servile Russian. pace requiescat, Horst!

  267. Putin is weak now. This is why he has decided to enter the Syrian war – to make the Russian people believe that he is doing something heroic while, in fact, he has made another big mistake, just like stealing land from the Ukraine and telling lies to the world. What else can you expect from a “leader” that oppresses his people, steal their money, kills his political opponents and shows himself off as a though guy without a shirt riding a horse – not to mention his close friendship with a dubious motorcycle gang. Russia is also a weak country now. Facts speak for themselves: The US has a military budget that is 8 times greater than Russia, and has a population that is twice than Russia’s. Seriously, how can a country like Russia prosper, if they are becoming more and more unpopular to the rest of the world? Ask yourself how many products do you own that are made in Russia. How many great inventions have been made in Russia that the whole world use today? Putin is mental. He believes that he can become popular by using force, and he believes that Russia can prosper by using force. The world should be aware that his goal might be to start WWIII “by accident” (as the KGB would have put it) because he is not getting the power that he wants.

  268. Clive,YOU got to be a complete idiot.Y should we give them any info they owe us there info.As far as I’m concerned shoot the RUSSKIS down

  269. Just because an entity tightens it’s belt to live within it’s means, does not mean lack of wealth. When a country’s debt exceeds it’s GDP, that is economic failure.

  270. Right on Shin. If our past and current gov’t would have adhered to the Constitution , we wouldn’t be in this or many past conflicts. And we would have remained the wealthiest and most respected country.

  271. If US wants coordination with RUSSIA, why wont US provide coordinates of the areas to be struck and the times?

    The basis of coordination is COMMUNICATION. Is the US a reluctant partner or just wants to hog the show?

    Clive Ocnacuwenga

  272. This article seems a bit premature and highlights the basics that any reasonably informed adult should already know. While not fear mongering it comes pretty close.

  273. Putin has been itching for all this for a long time. Putin is hoping for a war because he’s a nut in the same degree as Obama is a coward

  274. CIA..the Gestapo of the White House administrators…should be sent to gitmo and tried for war crimes , then sent to a multinational war crimes tribunal. I’m sure someone will implicate many past presidents for a plea bargain.

  275. Wouldn’t it be interesting if Chechnya is supplied with military weapons to give Putin something to take his mind off Syria. My defense stocks are doing pretty nice right now;)

  276. Russia is the only outside country in Syria that is there legally on the request of the elected Govt. Its stupid for the US not to comply with a request from Russia to coordinate positions.

  277. You can always reciprocate by bombing Russian trained Syrian soldiers! Don’t bomb little green men unless they are wearing uniforms with the insignia removed. Mr. Obama needs to stand up and tell them we are ready with our nuclear warheads! Hello Mr. Obama, stop hiding and be a manly man!

  278. gee, a funny thing happened with a request from Potus on the way to congress, it got ignored, two years later and still no response. Also Boner said Potus had all he needed to go on his own.

  279. Shia + Russia are raising the stakes. With a few downed planes Russia will be out, or more precisely syrians will be flying russian planes. Watch for Turkey supply sunnis with ground-2-air missiles.

  280. Obama’s War (WWIII) will start in the Middle East but it will be Iran that sets it off with Barack’s $200 billion in weapons.

  281. It wasn’t a liberal mindset that caused the fiasco in IRAQ and the Middle East. It was right wing interventionist Neocons.

  282. Assad is a brutal dictator who is killing his own people. Is the world suppose to keep looking the other way and do nothing?

  283. With our failed track record in the Middle East, removing Sadamn who kept these religious fanatics in check, the fiasco in Lybia, Afghanistan, and its loyality to Saudi Arabia who has some of the worst women’s human rights violations, the US should get the hell out of there. You can’t be against Assad and for him against ISIS at the same time. Hello! These are religious nut cases that can’t be controlled with a democracy.

  284. THAT IS THE BIGGEST LOAD OF EVER. Russia is the enemy, and thats a fact. Bottom line in the west we can look at whatever we want in Russia everything is state run and censored. Russia isn’t conducting an intervention they are trying to keep their loser dictator friend in power. Stop smoking crack and you might have a clearer view comrade.

  285. The root problem is in the UN Security Council. The USA does not have any justification to operate in Syria except that if anyone objects the USA has a veto. At the same time Russia had a veto also, plus the elected government (the one that holds the seat in the UN) of Syria did invite Russia to help. So this does give Russia a claim to authority over the USA over Syria. We could try to unseat the Syria reps in UN but again Russia has a veto. Hence one solution is to do away with all vetoes in UN, but then all the C I A operations could really put the USA out on a limb, in very high danger, and the USA could end up being sanctioned. Hence not willing to do this nothing will change in UN. Best solution is that each country should start drafting apology notes in the event that they shoot down and kill someone from the other side, after all both Russian and USA have accidently shot a friend helping them and the only way to avoid WW3 will be to apologize quickly.

  286. Well said. Let the truth be said. The boldness of Russia in challenging us at the theater of war is the real problem, worse still, we don’t have a credible response. Russians are there legally and we are not ! simple !!

  287. as done before, the US can do a proxy war to test new war equipment, the US can then supply the rebels just as they did with the Taliban of Afganistan before, supplying them with stingers to down Russian air force. Let the rebels do the work rather than involve US lives to an expanding ISIS theater….which is stretching us too thin here in the Asia Pacific theater where China is patiently waiting to fill the void.

  288. you’re backing your rebels and Russia is backing Syrian gov… so, who’s more legitimate ?? both have their motives, the only difference is one is evil and the other is sincere…

  289. World War 3 my ass, no chance in hell I’d fight Russia over SYRIA no less. We are the bad guys in this. For too long have we been in the business of regime change. Assad is good for Syria, and he is good for the Middle East. We don’t need another Lybia. We don’t need another Iraq. Thank god Egypt’s military took over, or we’d have yet another nation destroyed by our intervention. We should be backing Syria wholeheartedly. But no, our leaders are puppets of Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Iran, and so therefore will continue to oppose a stable Syria ruled by the legitimate government of Assad. I would 100% not support any war with Russia, and shoot myself in the foot if there was a draft to fight them. Nope. Sorry. Not gonna do it. We need to stay out of the Middle East, for good.

  290. If George Bush had been pulling the same feckless foreign policy that Obama is committing right now, both parties would have impeached him.

  291. What! How dare they bomb the 6 fighters on our side? Those 6 cost us millions to train and are just super. No wonder our fearless supreme leader is livid.

  292. @Dan:
    Should Obama show our strength by starting other wars ?, while we are $17 Trillion in debt thanks to your man Bush and his gang of neocons.
    Obama is our savior ! having rescued us from financial ruin while paying down our debt.
    You neocons want to prove bravado that might actually ruin this country.
    Obama is the smartest president this country ever had.
    Your ignorance is profound. It’s better to shut-up and let people think you’re smart than to talk and remove all doubts about your stupidity.

  293. Lying and deceiving, paid Washington’s shill, your comment is deliberately misleading in order to deceive general public.

  294. It should not be interpreted as the beginning of WWIII; rather an intervention by Russia to rescue the State of Syria from social, economic and political explosion by Americans, Europeans and the so-called Arab League strategies. Russian latest intervention is at last now occurring, possibly because they have the most to lose in the destruction of Syria becoming a Somalia and Libya. As difficult as it might seem, societies need to grasp western media’ calembredaine aiming at masking Russia as the enemy, when it fact it’s not. There’s no doubt that jealousy and hypocrisy have been a part of societal survival.

  295. fake ass head line and Russia should be able to assist there closest ally against terrorist within there country which includes the ones we train. Just because we train them does not mean they are not terrorist. they are a minority group of people that rose against there government. Which makes them terrorist.

  296. Well said, we have become a nation of unashamedly hypocrites. Now we are boxed into a corner by Russia’s boldness. If we leave, there goes our credibility in the middle east, if we stay, we must be ready to fight a country that can actually fight us back. it’s a no win situation for us right now. God help us.
    This might actually be the beginning of the fall of a great empire.

  297. All because of the liberal mindset that excepts and allows everything until it blows up in it’s face and then gives it another chance.

  298. Do you honestly think a conflict isn’t possible? Two super powers fighting on, now, opposing teams… that’s about as close as you can get without outright lobbing missiles at each other.

  299. Let Russia know that we have to insure ISIS does not get into the Mediterranean, so we will begin mining the ports if they do not stop going after our allies. We will also be giving Ukraine the scud missiles, made in Russia, that it gave up, and we will be providing IEDs to be used on their roads. I would remind Putin, under those conditions, of Afghanistan, but I fear Obama in Afghanistan more than Putin.

  300. 1/3 of the people Putin killed have been women and children… at this rate Assad will get his country back but there will be nothing left to lead.

  301. How can Russia with over $650 billion in their reserve (with no Debt) be in financial trouble while we, with 17 Trillion in debt not be in trouble ?? Stop being gullible listening to mainstream propaganda from both sides

  302. I_am_glad_the_US_economy_is_prosperin_with_it’s_astronomical_unemployment_rate_and_astronomical_
    gap_between_wealthy_and_poor_and_astronommical_national_debt

  303. Why? it’ll be only a matter of weeks before that s country and the people and the UN start asking for USA to come back and handle business!

  304. What is the U.S. doing in the territory of a sovereign state?
    Who called them in? Who let them in? Far I know the legitimate government of Syria did not invite USAF.
    May be Obama has the permission of UN security Council? No. So get out of Syria and don’t come back.

  305. They have many hundreds of missiles on mobile launchers, and several submarines with nuclear missiles always on patrol. These would be underway before Moscow would be hit, and before any imaginary traitor generals have time to save the day. Russia feels quite free now, all Western media propaganda to the contrary. I’ve been there. Have you?

  306. PS I don’t this will be the beginning of WWIII. If there ever were a war pitting American vs Russian interests, it will not involve all world powers as they will surely abandon us. That is to say the war will be very localized.

  307. I find it amazing that when Bush was criticized for going into Iraq it was “Un-American” but when right wingers do it, it is patriotic. It is amazing that you feel the only reason the MAJORITY of the US voted for Obama was the color of the skin instead of the fact the opponent was only interested in those that were his monetary support demonstrates your ignorance.

  308. Let Putin pound his chest and scream out his false bravado. The west is already at war with Russia and winning it. Russia’s economy is under attack and is slowly degrading. Oil, Russia’s life blood, is so cheap it no longer supports Russia’s spending. We watched as the Soviet Union spent it’s way out of existence. Now we will watch Russia do the same thing.

  309. “You’ll be living in a cave”

    – Sorry… Russia’s retaliation will be quite impotent as they have nothing with which to strike us. So yes… four targets: Moscow, Murmansk, Vladivostok, and a small area in Saratov Oblast, and the war is over. With Putler gone, his generals, who are smarter than he, will sue for peace and Russia gets the freedom it deserves.

  310. You think WW3 will bring a change? You’re right. You’ll be living in a cave, if, of course, you are lucky enough to be out of town on that day.

  311. It looks like «The Bull» is a cornered bull being given orders by Turkish, Qatari, Wahhabis and, of course Israelians and red blind eyes attacking empty buildings and empty sandy roads in Syria.

  312. If Russia was invited by the known Syrian Government – the only sovereign government in Syria as of this day! then why should anyone in the Western Hemisphere doubt that whatever is doable by the Syrian Government will not be the same course of action by the Pro-Assad Russian Forces in Syria?
    Questions:
    1) Does Assad Bomb Pro-West Opposition Forces fighting against Him?
    2) Has Russian hidden its support for the Assad Regime? Answer No.
    3) Has Russia and Iran continued to Supply Weapons to Assad? Answer Yes?

    Foolish Question and Final Question:
    Can Russia ask the West and NATO to stop supporting the Western Backed Rebels against the Assad Regime, if NO!
    then, who gave NATO the Authority to compel Russia to allow THOSE WESTERN BACKED TERRORIST (by Assad’s definition) to overrun the legitimate Sovereign Government in Syria Unchecked?

  313. Dear US Government…If you plan on starting yet ANOTHER war please DO NOT come looking for my sons to help you fight YOUR fuching war as I will hide them away where I can’t even find them. When the day comes that the only REAL threat to the world…the phsycotic muslim barbarians, invade the United States for their religious “join us or DIE” crusade…I will personally gather my sons up and along with myself will bear arms and join the front lines to rid this great country of that human garbage. But until that day arrives…uhhh I don’t think so. Sincerely, Mr. Wally

  314. Whether you people like it or not, Russia could very well intend to cause a war between Russia and the USA, and Nukes would not be a problem, either. If such a war started it would be a fight between Russia, China, North Korea, Vietnam, and the USA. Every country that lost out during the cold war years, and even Germany and Japan could join in against this country. When you make yourself number one, you better be ready to keep yourself number one. It is my opinion that Obama has been working for this very situation. It would be very hard for him to become the de-facto ruler for life over this country, but with a little help from all the countries that the USA has smeared their face in the mistakes they made, it could happen. As the old saying goes, what goes around, comes around, and the starter tends to be on the receiving end of it when history repeats.

  315. There is no way this would lead to number 3 and Russia knows it because we have the weakest leader in the history of our country. Obama has destroyed our valor and our integrity and the world knows it. We are no longer a country to be reckoned with and Obama knew where he was taking us all along. This was his goal from the beginning. We are now a weak, sorrowful third world nation. Thanks to all the liberals who put this man in office and thanks to all who voted for him just because of the color of his skin and not for his knowledge, you will now reap that which you have sown. You deserve what you get.

  316. Russia is Iran’s key military ally. Russia, since WWII loves to try to take territory. They are trying to increase their prestige and influence wherever they can as they have certainly lost both over the last two decades. Iran wants to spread their influence throughout the
    Middle East. Absolutely, both want to screw the US, so why not work together on
    that? There is presently a world perception I believe of America being weak, without direction, or have a firm foreign policy on Syria (other than not having US boots on the ground, and getting rid of Assad – to be replaced by whom exactly? Very unclear), and generally a soft touch. We don’t seem to have a clue. THEY see us as weakened and vulnerable as we are stretched mighty thin militarily. We also are not inclined to participate I another war. The war on terror has taken quite an economic toll on America which is
    just what Bin Laden for example was trying to achieve, as well as many others.
    They wish to suck us dry and weaken us. The war on terror has no end, and the enemies of America know it. Iran is laughing at us for trusting them. Syria is blaming us for not winning their war. Russia is also bad mouthing us. Very soon the Russians will bring in more troops and equipment ostensibly to better fight ISIS, but in actuality to prop up Assad,
    and to defend Iran when they renege on our “agreement” (and they
    will, again and again). You notice that the nuclear agreement is virtually gone from any recent news reporting. When we want to wave the big stick at Iran, they will
    have their own stick to wave back in the form of Putin – he is hating life
    because of the sanctions that have been imposed and is just waiting for the
    chance to strike back. Please remember, Putin threatened us with tactical
    nukes in Ukraine only 6 months ago. He is childish, not reasonable or very responsible, or necessarily rational, and certainly not to be trusted. Bottom line – THEY support Assad, WE don’t. Sounds like a conflict brewing of dangerous proportions.

  317. I am so proud of our President. Obama remains cool and confident and has nurtured a good relationship with Putin. KUMBAYA!

  318. EDWARD SNOWDEN YOU MORON! THE COMMUNISTS ARE A MILITARY AUTOCRACY AKIN TO ADOLPH HITLER AND YOU NOW TIPPED THE BALANCE OF POWER TOWARDS THE SHORT BALD HEADED MIDGET AND THE COMMUNIST CHINESE VERSION OF LURCH FROM THE ADAMS FAMILY! IF I EVER SEE YOU IN AMERICA YOUR GETTING MY STEEL TOE BOOTS TO YOUR HEAD! YOU FOOL!!!

  319. “U.S.-Russia Clash In Syria: The Beginning of World War 3”

    – I hope so! Russia is in dire need of lasting regime change. innocent Russians have been forced to endure one despot after another for centuries! Time for a change!

  320. U.S. is basically dishonest in saying that «U.S. trained rebels» are at risk by Russian’s bombers. How many of them? Pentagon officials already informed the President Obama that after 600 million dollars only 60 trained rebels entered in Syria, 56 of them were promptly captured by Al-Nusra Front and changed side giving up all their american armaments to the jihadists. The rest is 4 (yes four) that are hiding somewhere far away the Russians attacks. Whether U.S. doesn’t like the Russian determination and efficacy is another story. All suggest that the only option for U.S. (in fact Turkey, Qatar, Wahhabi ambitions of an Emirate in Syria) is to arm directly the Al-Nusra Front and all the other Al-Qaeda satellites if not indirectly ISIL as they call them.

  321. It has something to do with the US being the world’s leader and superpower. You really don’t want to see the world Tony if the US is not on top.

  322. The real ISIS is all of them. Get out and leave it to Russia. Of course, when it’s all done, expect gas prices to be $5 and the dollar will no longer be the reserve currency so the US becomes the second class world citizen but I’m sure you’re rich enough not to worry about such things.

  323. The credibility of this article and writer’s knowledge on the matter is beyond embarrassing. The sad thing is that 95% of readers believe anything they see on the internet. I would like to see writer’s credentials in military science or military history between these two countries. Speaking certain languages does not make you an expert on the matter.

  324. We should give russia obama and all members of congress to convict as war criminals and terrorists. Also george soros and all federal reserve members. Then we could elect new people to bring our country back to the good side and keep it good with term limits and easy removal of traitors.

  325. There is not going to be any World War 3 because The ELITE knows the aftermath of a nuclear Fallout and they know they cannot control it for their own safety as well unless they are ready to leave the comfort of their powerful life and get ready to live in a bunker for decades or more…
    Funny thing is that Now the Russians are hitting the real target ISIS with the real intelligence support from the Muslim neighbors intelligence agencies who knows the threat of CIA made ISIS and U.S is not feeling good about it as their planted assets are dying in the real air strikes and they cant afford it.
    Carry on RUSSIA I salute you guys you are doing a real job out there…Kill and finish the Real Terrorist ISIS from its ground

  326. Very good point sir, I think in sum total both the US and Russia are corrupt entities that only work to serve their own self interests.

  327. Everyone knows Putin will come as close as possible to making a scenario that calls for confrontation and then deescalate and insert his personal brand of propaganda…this is where the U.S. must remain vigilant and stare him down. We should not force a hostile engagement but because of the Russian lack for communication if they should get in our way placing our pilots and aircraft in danger then they need to be dealt with as a hostile. If a Russian aircraft should “ping” one of our aircraft especially if they have turned off their transponders….it is an act of aggression and the stakes in that area are too high. If our forces are placed in a potential more dangerous situation they must be considered hostile…we must deal with it as if they are hostile. I would suspect we have given them a list of how to operate in-theater in concert or otherwise in a collaborative fashion AND because we have been operating in that area there is no need to change course for the Russians or to backdown from Russian foolery…IF they want to mess with the bull….give them the F’n horns…STAT!!!!

  328. WOW, THE PEOPLE WHO WRITE THESE
    ARTICLES.. Every single day there are 4 to 5 articles against Russia. Moreover
    the tone is always about “the U.S and Obama should this and that, against
    these and those.” And I keep asking myself: “Who do we think we are
    to tell every nation what to do and what not to do according to our
    orders?” Do we do what another nation asks us to do? No, right? So, why
    should they follow our orders? We have become a nation of Hypocrites!!!!

  329. After more than a decade of fear mongering, of claiming Al Qaeda to be the most dangerous enemy and launching two wars to defeat it, the US government is training, supplying and now protecting Al Qaeda affiliated group?! People are serving life sentences for this in the States…
