All I have to say here is that not long ago the narrative from several influential commentary outlets had all these freedom fighters as Islamic radical in disguise ect, ect. Not hearing, haven't been hearing this sort of talk during the latest rounds of activity. Will say a lot of good men, brave fighters and people that had lost a great deal at the hand of a tyrant were tossed under the tank as it were.

They are a bunch of terrorists, no need to distinguish between the 1000 different terror groups in Syria, they are all car bombing toyota driving allah u akbar chanting scum that need to be run out of Syria.


Who care about the women and children nearby? If they are Arabs, they are terrorists and deserve to die, right? Go Russia!


Right. You're the guy whose on every Ukraine thread cheering on Kiev and it's bombardment of the east. And whenever someone mentions all the civilian casualties, you mumble "human shields..". Now suddenly you're a tireless defender of the innocent? Pick a lane mate...

I have never cheered for Kyiv's bombardment. Defending a government's legitimacy is not the same thing as approving their policies.


And whenever someone mentions all the civilian casualties, you mumble "human shields..".


No, I consistently point out that if armed forces attack from spaces occupied by civilians, they are placing those civilians in danger. Yes, they are using human shields. There is a difference between killing civilians while attacking a military target, and targeting civilians directly. The former is collateral damage, the latter is a war crime. There are some Ukrainians committing war crimes, I have never denied that. Assad has also committed war crimes.


Now suddenly you're a tireless defender of the innocent? Pick a lane mate...


So I assume you approve of bombing Arabs to pieces but don't approve of bombing Ukrainians. Also, don't you find it odd that Russia supports rebels and separatists in Ukraine, but fights them in Syria?

Looks like the Russians are planning to do something like 300 airstrikes a day if such is true after a year of strikes ISIL would be totally decimated. I dont think ISIL and FSA terrorists could last a few days of such intense strikes.



Russia plans 300 Syrian sorties a day
www.theaustralian.com.au...

The Kremlin says it is flying an average of about 50 missions a day in Syria, although the number, co-ordinated with Assad’s ground forces, varies from day to day.

Sources close to the operation say the aim is eventually to raise this to 200-300 a day, marking a considerable escalation. As part of preparations, a new airstrip is reported to be under construction nearby.

Here's some more news for you to laugh out loud about:


A suspected Russian air strike on a home in the countryside near the central city of Homs has killed 48 people from a single family, Syrian activists said.

The bomb shelter where the family was hiding was hit by a rocket in the western city of Homs, activists told Al Jazeera on Sunday.

And in other news the terrorist mercs are losing ground in the north and east. They need to give up and go back to thier own countries, or just give up and end this needless conflict.

Why do we never see anyone shooting back in these videos? Doesn't that make you a bit suspicious?

The Syrian offensive is not going all that well. Of the territory captured they have already lost several villages back to the rebels or other groups. Syrian forces have also taken heavy losses.

SO it appears that there has been some lying going on with reporting civilian deaths from the rebels, this video has some news on the topic. . . . .


War of Words: Russian Foreign Ministry calls out MSM reports on hospital strike in Syria

Which Hospital strike? Russia has hit 4 of them now -

Four Syrian hospitals bombed since Russian airstrikes began, doctors say


At least four hospitals have been bombed by fighter jets in north-western Syria since Russia’s intervention in the war began in late September, doctors and international observers claim.

The latest attack, on Tuesday, killed at least 12 people at Sarmin hospital in Idlib province. At least three of the victims were believed to be medical staff. Survivors and witnesses said the hospital was hit by two airstrikes at about 1pm.

Dr Mohamed Tennari, director of Sarmin hospital, said the facility appeared to have been directly targeted and could no longer serve patients on one of the fiercest frontlines in the war.

He said the hospital had been the target of at least 10 other airstrikes earlier in the conflict. Throughout the war, international medical organisations have repeatedly claimed that medical facilities in opposition areas have been systematically targeted.

Physicians for Human Rights said it had documented 313 attacks on medical facilities and the deaths of 679 medical personnel in Syria since protests against the regime of Bashar al-Assad began in March 2011 until the end of August 2015. “Syrian government forces have been responsible for more than 90% of these attacks,” the organisation said. “Each of which constitutes a war crime.”

Looks like Russia and Assad have also been lying.

You do understand the article I posted refers to Physicians for Human rights and not the Syrian Observatory for Human rights.

didnt read the article did ya?

I suppose you think the doctor they interviewed who ran one of the Hospitals who said its been attacked by syrian forces more than 10 times over the years and recently by russian forces is lying?

If he says that his hospitals have been bombed more than 10 times over the years, why would you consider that this time, it's the Russians who did it ?
