Wonder what the US has been doing? Trying to avoid bombing civilians.

Nice to see you laughing at the prospect of Russians getting killed. This bears repeating:


In a sign that sectarianism is further inflaming the region, a group of Saudi clerics on Monday called for jihad against Assad's Alawite regime, Iran and Russia.
In a statement tinged with sectarian references, 53 Saudi clerics said Sunni Muslim states had an obligation to help defend Islamists in Syria.
"The holy warriors of Syria are defending the whole Islamic nation. Trust them and support them ... because if they are defeated, God forbid, it will be the turn of one Sunni country after another," the clerics, who are not tied to the government, said.
"The Western-Russian coalition with the Safavids (Iran) and the Nusairis (Alawites) are making a real war against the Sunni people and their countries," the statement said.
Meanwhile, Syria's Muslim Brotherhood on Monday also called for jihad against Russian occupation, according to militant websites. The Brotherhood stated Syria is "witnessing a sheer and clear Russian occupation" and resistance was legitimate.

We should see the first suicide bombings directed at Russians in Syria within twenty four hours. This will be followed in a few weeks by bombings against Russian targets in Kazakhstan. These latter will be false flags, however.

ETA: Sorry, make that 48 hours; Syria is a security state and it may take a while for the operatives to figure out whether or not Russian personnel are allowed off the base, and, if they are, where they congregate.

Did you see anything about Russians being killed in combination with the smileys in my post?

I was laughing at that bit of comedy gold you dropped there.

So pointing out that Russian warfighting doctrine permits unlimited collateral damage; ie, civilian deaths, is "comedy gold?"

That article is really banking on you having never been to SA, or being aware of how they operate.

There is no such thing as a cleric that is not tied to the government. Nor is there any way to get large sums of money out of SA without the monarchy's knowledge. (If any of you actually bought the song about how individual Saudis may support terrorism groups financially but the government does not.)

They run the show in a very absolute fashion. No cleric, let alone 53 of them, is making this public statement without the family's explicit consent...lest they lose their heads over it.

As an aside, that article pretty much says the Ruskies aren't lying. They, apparently, hit the extremists in Syria hard enough that an immediate plea for fresh recruits was issued.

You really think that if you act dumb, that people reading this will become dumb too and think that I am laughing at the prospect of dead civilians?

No, but do you really think that nobody is going to notice you are avoiding the fact that Putin has got a jihad against Russia on his hands now. Funny, I could have sworn I've been predicting that for days.

I didn't say that they weren't echoing government policy, did I? The church-state thing in Saudi Arabia is complicated, but I'm sure Saudi intelligence wants to encourage young people to fight in Syria.

Oh, so you have no reaction to jihad being declared against Russia. Ho hum and la-dee-dah....

You don't. If you don't understand why you should react to this information, you just might be a sociopath.

Well it seems that ISIS has not noticed that they are so close to defeat and continue to destroy things like the Arch of Triumph in Palmyra. And they have not left their siege of Deir al-Zor which is on the verger of falling. In fact ISIS operations seem to be exactly the same before the Russians started. Surely these claims of victory are not exaggerated? Not by Russia.

Although considering how little support propping up Assad has in Russia, maybe Russia is just going to declare victory and go home. Than again the mess in Ukraine and wrecked Russian economy remain and nobody want Russians thinking about that. And you would never want to tell them, hey air power is only so effective and it will take years along with local ground operations to make a real difference. So, great victory it is.

I didn't see anyone else reacting to it. Is everybody here a sociopath?

What do you want me to say? Nothing has even happened yet. What if I just accepted your information for what it is. Do I have to inform you that I accepted what you posted?

Btw, were the Saudi's declaring Jihad on America over their supposed actions against ISIS?

Wonder what the US has been doing? Trying to avoid bombing civilians. Russia doesn't have that constraint. Here is what it gets them:


Of course not a million died of a consequence of the Afghan and Iraq war. If they wanted rid of ISIS they would be gone by now. The Russians entered Sryian airspace with permission from Assad to help rid the country of terrorism. Thats not US policy which is support and arm the Syrian rebels that change sides at will and devastate a county.

No not by Russia. They didn't make any claims that this thread is about.

No, only the ones who laugh when civilian casualties are mentioned.

No, because officially Saudi Arabia is not only not supporting Daesh, they are even making token arrests of Daesh operatives in the peninsula. The clerics are declaring jihad because Russia is bombing non-terrorist Sunni groups that Saudi Arabia is officially supporting.

No, but you seem unable to understand why it is inappropriate to respond to a post about civilian casualties with what you seem to think is a funny remark. Tell many dead baby jokes?
