Our Russian allies. As trustworthy as Pakistan or Saudi Arabia.
“Russia is sending armed troops to Syria” because only a dumbass would send UNARMED troops. Geez, I hate the media.
Muslims killing Muslims killing Russians????
Where’s the downside?
“Our Russian allies.”
We do not have a treaty alliance with Russia so they are not our allies.
Putin has beaten Barack Hussein Kardashian to the punch. The punk with the prompter now CANNOT send troops to Syria without tangling with the Russians, and we KNOW the punk doesn't have the BALLS to do that.
The ENTIRE Middle East policy of this jerkwad is a disaster. He is a friend to NO ONE in that region, and has done untold damage to our reputation as an ally.
Iran and Syria have been able to count on Russia as an ally.
Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan and Israel have seen America (really, Obamugabe) as an UNRELIABLE ally.
Decades will be taken to repair the damage done by the punk in this region...globally, too. Consider: if Obamugabe so quickly threw our allies in these nations under the bus, why would ANYONE trust us for ANYTHING? He is a diplomatic septic tank.
Is this big? This seems big to me. Russian involvement seems big. I have a brother in Syria. I have to go take a shower.
We should send in Orville Redenbacher armed with popcorn. He’d be pretty busy with our allies!
Just in case anyone missed it, this is exactly the type of military adventurism that creeps up when you cut your own forces too much.
We can attribute this directly to Barack Obama’s failure as president, and the Republicans who let him get away with gutting our military.
We’re going to war, and I’m not talking about nations that don’t have nukes here.
The average U. S. Citizen doesn’t have a clue.
Exactly. Spengler’s recent column noted that this was a proxy war between Shia Islam and Sunni Islam. We want both sides to win. Any Russians are a bonus.
Arab Spring -> Arab Winter -> Cold War Redux -> ?
Remember when the Ruskies got to some important airport in former Yugoslavia first and General Weasel Clarke wanted to use force to kick them out until a British commander told Weasel that he would not allow him to start World War III.
Pristina Airport redux. Only thing missing is General Wesley Clark...
Good for the Russians. The Alawites in Syria protects the Christians. If the Alawites are overthrown, it’ll be open season on Christians in Syria.....
What? Did Debka get this one half-right? Shocking
MSNBC certainly isnt talking about Hillay’s “Reset Button” with Russia much anymore.
My, it sure was easier to criticize Bush when the Left wasnt in power...
Who do we want to come out ahead in this battle?
The Almighty is about to press His reset button and than the SHTF for the false messiah and his minions.
Gee whats very close to Syria. Sounds almost biblical
Russia may actually protect the Christians there.
Gog, meet Magog.
Kind of funny. Putin isn’t a Christian? After all, he was a kGB Agent.
Looks like the Russians thought they were being over charged for that reset button.
Unfortunately, the overthrow of the Alawites with a government support by Saudi Arabia is in the best interest of the United State. It cuts Iran Shia Crescent in half and could ultimately lead to the overthrow of the Mullahs in Iran (assuming Obama is not the president and blows it again).
The problem is the US does not call in its blood and money spent in the Middle East an insist that Christians are protected.
Good for the Russians. Syria is now, officially off limits to any American expeditionary force assembled by Barack Hussein Obama and John McCain.
We’ll save countless lives-American lives
LOL ! Report is also here:
What will our usurper president do now _____ ? Send in U.S. troops by illegal executive order, probably.
Or surely to call on demonic powers to aid him and possibly to prostrate himself before a huge statue dedicated to the Satanic deity known as Molech . . .
Will Obama to go to Bohemian Grove himself or just send one of his appointed minions to represent the government ___ ?
This is like the late 70s and 1980 all over again. A lousy economy led by an incompetent president, high oil prices, the Soviets invading some muslim country, our Armed Forces being dismantled and demoralized, bad music on the radio...
Muslims killing Christians (who are unfortunately 'allied' with Assad). Russians indiscriminately killing everyone.
I’m supporting the Christians which means rooting for the Russians, Syrians (Alawites) and even the Iranians over Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The best thing we can do is order up plenty of popcorn and sit on the sidelines. If I was president I’d call Putin and encourage him.
Allies? Sense when? Russia is no one’s friend. BUT we are trapped in a classic Chess move—The Fork—Putin is a master Chess player. If we move on Russians in Syria, he will close our land route to Afghanistan leaving our guys trapped with no supplies. Pakistan will not let fuel or ammunition come in. This was well thought out plan to pull Syria into the New Russian Empire—These guys will put an end to the Civil War with a brutal crackdown. They start with a port—end with the whole nation. To stave this off Obama will have to get clever—and he has no “clever” to use. Now Hillary might have something up her sleeve—Use french troops??? She is as clever as a snake and just as poisonous. I don’t think this will end well for the USA.
That was my point.
Putin is a bigtime Christian—or at least he says so and goes to Church and holds the candle. Whats in his heart? Only God know that. The question is what sort of Christian is he? His Russia is building and restoring churches—I think for political reasons at home he may well protect Christians in Syria. Remember the 3rd Rome legend that Russia will bring Europe and the world to Christ—if they want it or not.
Here is an archive photo:
Perhaps this information was intentionally released to create uncertainty. At the cost of one free news item the whole Syria is now off limits to Obama.
This reminds me of the Balkans, Libya, Egypt—all the atrocity stories the press highlighted to get us into a war. Like Afghanistan, Russia's going to find it's a lot easier to go to Syria than it will be to leave Syria.
Secretary Clinton is in her office, hitting the “Reset” button like crazy.
Yep it will happen, sooner rather than later with liberals in charge.
One of many ignored reasons why we can’t afford to stop working while we give them everything. We need to work to save all our lives.
It’s fashionable . . . considered even erudite and PC by even conservatives normally hostile to PC . .
to be dismissive to fiercely hostile and derisive about
demonic spiritual forces . . .
particularly as acting through globalist political elite stooges of satan.
People who talk about THE TRUTH as The Bible warned so clearly about in the END TIMES ERA . . . are even considered by some to be kooks, ignorant, insane, etc.
I wonder what they’ll tell themselves when the new gestapo shows up at their doors.
That’s a great question!
We gonna support the radical Muslim Brotherhood or a nasty arab dictator... It is hard to believe anyone calls what Obama has done in the Middle East an American foreign policy. He’s leading us into a world war.
Putin caught Bush off guard when Bush made the assumption he was harmless and Bam has mistaken Putin for a friendly fellow travelor from the KGB. America is Putin enemy.
The US certainly did not help the Christians in Egypt or any other country that was supporting "Arab Spring." Helping the Muslim Brotherhood seems to be more important to this current administration.
Us getting drawn in this summer.
He also cannot bomb Syria, or do Predator strikes, without risking hitting a Russian, which is probably why Putin sent them.
You think Clinton would have bombed the Serbs if there had been Russian advisers there?
Barry is simply extending the Mideast damage from the Carter administration into warp drive.
It will be an islamic caliphate by the time this moron is through.
