Russia deplores US refusal to jointly fight Nusra in Syria


"MOSCOW (AP) - Washington's refusal to jointly fight al-Qaida's branch in Syria has contributed to an escalation of fighting in the war-torn country, Russia's Defense Ministry said Friday.

The Russians proposed last week that Russia and the U.S.-led anti-Islamic State coalition launch joint action against the Nusra Front, but the U.S. military said its contacts with Russia are only to maintain airspace safety in the crowded skies over Syria.

Lt. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military's General Staff said the U.S. refusal to consider join action against the Nusra Front is leading "to further escalation of the military conflict."

He noted that the U.S. has failed to encourage opposition groups eager to abide by a U.S.- and Russian-brokered cease-fire in Syria to leave the areas where the al-Qaida affiliate is present, saying their failure to do so is threatening the truce."

The media in this country is so corrupt. The TV networks like CNN don't care about human rights. The people in Syria have rights. Just as all people in the world have an inalienble right to live bestowed upon them by God. They have a right to exist, and not get incinerated by U.S. bombs or killed by U.S. proxy forces, like ISIS and Al Nusra.


Does CNN or NBC care?

Hello no! All CNN cares about is attacking the GOP , and getting Clinton elected. All NBC hosts care about is attacking the GOP and Fox News, and being Democrat shills like Rachel Maddow. Rachel Maddow doesn't give a crap about the innocent people killed in Syria. All Rachel Maddow wants is her $$$ and high visibility job.

ISIS isn't a US proxy force. Would we be bombing them if they were?

Here's a hint: the answer is no.

Clue: Saudi Arabia and Turkey, the USA allies in Iraq have been training, funding and arming ISIS/ISIL. The USA/CIA sent Libyan arms from Benghazi to Turkey and then forwarded to al Nusra Front (allegedely "moderate rebels, but Islamic terrorists by any name"). The CIA spent a billion dollars training and supplying "moderate rebels" to instigate insurrection in Syria. The Pentagon spent $500 million training "moderate rebels" in Turkey who quickly allied with ISIS. The USA is attempting to overthrow the legitimate government of Syria (Assad). Now the USA refuses to fight the Islamic rebels in Syria and wants them named "the good guys" and to be a part of any future Syrian coalition government. Stop reading and begin asking questions or you'll never know anything. You're like a copy of the Pentagon/CIA narrative.

And your like a copy of one of those PSAs: this is your brain after you spend too much time on the Internet.

You still haven't proven your not a CIA mole either :roll:

A government's legitimacy goes down to nill once they use chemical weapons on their own population.

But then again, those Syrians don't matter, right? :roll:

It has been documented that it was the rebels, like al Nusra, that used the chemical weapons supplied by Erdogan of Turkey. Known as a false flag operation and a common specialty of the infamous CIA. Almost a signature move.

Uh.....no. No it hasn't. I'd suggest reviewing your sources.

It has been documented, however, that the CIA is a convient boogeyman for whatever goes on in an anti American regime.

People sick of dictatorship? Blame it on the CIA. Purge your own people? Blame it on the CIA? Shortage of goods thanks to your policies? Blame it on the CIA.

Perhaps some of your grey matter is stuck in neutral, or is just gummed up. Too many gummy bears, mos' likely. Not to worry, a good night's rest, and a re-read of the Pentagon's talking points should make you a new boy. Momma will tuck you in and tomorrow you'll be a new boy.

At least I have grey matter and don't just parrot the scumbag dicatator of the week's propaganda machine.

The Al-Nusra front is our personal terrorist group, Dave. Every country funds a terror group so there's no way we'll fight them, at least not yet...

Hm......

Well, the fact remains that the chemical weapons were part of the Syrian Army's arsenal. Even if they didn't use the weapons themselves--- And I'm still highly skeptical of the claim that Assad didn't use his chemical weapons-- it's still a truly horrific lapse of security.

Not to mention there's been reports of chlorine gas use as well recently.

Yes! We agree the USA is funding, training, and arming TERRORISTS and that is the point. In Syria, in Libya, in Ukraine, in Iran, in Iraq and where else?

"Ukraine"

You might want to check your sources again. :roll:

Seeing as the rebels in the Ukraine are armed by Moscow......

"Iran"

Suuuuure they are. :roll:

I assume you think the French Resistance were terrorists as well? After all, they were armed by the West and fought an anti American dicatatorship. And, in your world view apparently, fighting an anti American regime automatically makes you a terrorist.

But wait--- what about the Sandinistas? The ETA? The RAF? The PFLP? Where they terrorists? No, they were "freedom fighters" :roll::roll::roll:

Actually, we have known for some time that the rebels have chemical weapons. (UN accuses Syrian rebels of chemical weapons use - Telegraph) (Syria: Chemical weapons used by rebels came from Turkey | The Times of Israel)

And the most likely way they could have gotten chemical weapons is by seizing a Syrian Army arms depot. Which, of course, means that the Syrian Army hasn't sufficiently kept a watch on their chemical supplies.

Incompetence isnt much better then malice.

Or alternatively, they had to retreat and couldn't get those chemical weapons in time.

Why are you so intent on spinning this on the Syrian army?

Because they are the ones with the chemical weapons and it was their job to make sure that said weapons, even if they did have to retreat, were destroyed.

Also because, you know, they've been fighting for a totally ruthless dictator.

Either they deliberately used the weapons or allowed them to be captured and used; were incompetent enough to let massively deadly chemical weapons fall into the opposition's hands; or simply were too corrupt to give a ****.

I haven't been able to acquire info on Ghouta's ethnic breakdown, but I'd be surprised if there were many---if any--Alawites in town.

Anyone who followed Reagans arming of the Nicaraguan Contras in the 1980s can tell that Obama applied the same methods to overthrow the Syrian Government.

Obama and Hillary Clinton started the war in Syria, and are responsible for the deaths of 250,000 people and over a million refugees.

That is why anyone with a good conscience cannot vote Democrat in 2016.

You're a regular record player of propaganda when you should actually learn history. For example, the Sandanistas were the cocaine dealers from Nicaragua that were trading cocaine for weapons and the cocaine was marketed by the CIA in Los Angeles. San Jose Mercury News, Webb. Admitted to, in Congress, by the CIA. The cocaine came from the CIA man Noriega in Panama. It was the Reagan/Bush scheme to bypass the US ban on weapon sales to the Sandanistas.

That's an......interesting...... view of the world. Especially seeing as we were arming the Contras in Nicaraugua who, last time I checked, did not work for the Sandinista government.

What your trying to distort is Iran Contra, where the United States sold equipment via proxy to Iran in order to try and get some American hostages held by Hezbollah free, and then developed into using the proceeds of said operation to help the Contras.

Your just throwing **** out there to see what sticks.

My mistake. The Contras were the cocaine dealers working with the CIA and Reagan/Bush. Reagan/Bush paid Iran to keep the hostages until after their election. Treason. The cocaine money paid for weapons to the Contras. Reagan/Bush traded aircraft repair parts to Iran, among other things to keep the hostages, not to gain their release. I believe Bush had to pardon 9 of his Cabinet members to stop prosecution and then, lo and behold, Clinton chose not to prosecute and most certainly not because all the cocaine/arms were moving through Mena, Arkansas and the money was being laundered by the Arkansas Financial Development Corporation during Clinton's tenure as governor of Arkansas.

No, you parrot the Pentagon and State Department official line, never asking a question. You are a good subject, bowing and scraping before the powers that be.

No, the Iranians had a long history of not being especially willing and or quick negotiators. Case in point being the hostages who were taken right after the Islamic Revolution. The Iranians despised Carter so much that they were more then willing to give him a final "**** you" by releasing said hostages late enough so that he couldn't take any credit for the release.

Seeing as there were only seven hostages in Lebanon, this was a much lower scale affair---there would be no reason for Reagan to pay the Iranians to keep the hostages, because this time around people didn't really know about it.
