Same thoughts, the Russians are experts with conspiracy theories.

Pravda and Sorcha Faal are usually only about two sentences apart.

I find this post highly immature, illogical, and honestly a little sociopathic........



Make's sense considering I'm diagnosed as such. (ASPD)



Makes sense, well thats not something you can cure, however not all sociopaths lack the ability to want good things to happen to people

SO how do you get to that stage yourself? thats the question

The Russians have had many many years to perfect their asymmetrical warfare, both through the internet and espionage

this whole thing is not what it seems with Russia, and the world is going to find out in a big way I fear

That's inaccurate Russia has not made more head way, Russia should be preparing for a long drawn out war as the Middle East always is, and furthermore I'm not surprised they are being attacked as they are waging war and supporting Assad which the majority of Syria does not support, so they've taken a hardline position as opposed to the American position, which gives it the appearance of large headway.


Of course.....you could be right.... this is the other side BUT it would not take a genius to rethink this and it would be perfect timing to lay blame on the U.S. Do not forget that there are two new players in this game, both of them sworn enemies of the United States.

Putin strengthening world wide support for his plans and showing how devious the U.S. is in this war.

It would be a good strategy for the Russians.


To be fair, It doesn't take much to shed light on the US's less moral practices. I would even say most people already went in not to pleased with the way the US has been acting. As a Canadian I'm expected to support my neighbors, but I prefer Putin. At least he's honest and forthright..

hell why not, Putin for prime minister 2015!

I've always loved Canada but you sure ruined it for me! Putin honest and forthright? You've been watching too much RT.

You can't begin to understand the effects that has on someone. The thing's i have seen, The thing's i have read, the things people do - I want the entire human race to go extinct because we don't deserve to live any more, Not the way we continue to do things, Or the way to continue to treat each other because they are diffrent, Or strange, Or simply come from a different part of the planet.

Please, talk to your parents or someone that can find you some help! That is not a healthy response.

This is likely just local insurgents within Damascus. It could be Al Nursa or Al Quida but, then it likely would have been far worse of an attack. And very unlikely to be ISIS as the Russians and ISIS are avoiding fighting each other at the moment. Best guess it is a message from people within the city letting the rebels outside know they are willing to get in the fight.

Al Nursa has called for retaliation and the focus to be against the Alawites. As this is why the Russians are there. The Alawites were Assad only loyal group in Syrian and they have been heavily conscripted suffering terrible casualties as the Alawites are always put in the fighting because of no trust in the rest of the army. When the rebels began attacking there lands, Assad sent no help. The Alawites began to feel betrayed. Protests sprang up. Alawites refused to report to the Army for duty and instead started forming local militias. As the Alawites look likely to be deserting Assad Russia had to act or Assad would be done overnight. Even with Iran and Hezbollah their simply would not be enough loyal soldiers left without the Alawites. So this has been where the Russian are focused. ISIS is no where near Alawite territory so Russia is not attacking them. They are attacking all the other rebels making them a target for Assads allies and ISIS. Although as the rebels are pulling out ISIS is moving in. So sooner or later, unless Russia cuts a deal with ISIS they are going to have to finally deal with them.

Did you just make the case American soldiers,men and women need to die as to "put America in its place" that you support and hope that america engages in seriptious activities and can be caught red handed as to justify killing Americans and waging a war.

Just FYI America is a pot of different races different cultures all coming together under one country, so in essence the world is apart of America and America a part of the world.

Also it is clear at times America has sacrificed moral compass for strategic positioning, and for that we are wrong and certainly need to adopt new foreign policy's. Our men and women, our people are great people we do not deserve death and to call for such a thing shows me exactly who you are, and the people who star you and agree with you.

I am an American patriot I love my culture, I also love the west, I will die for either of them. If you want to kill someone or want someone dead come kill me. I disagree wholeheartedly with what you said, that's all I'm going to say about that.


Who made you the spokesperson for the United States of A?

In your one sided, obviously patriotic-hypnotized state.. you say it's not right for American men and women to be bombed or killed...

Yet on the other side of the planet your be-hind obviously hasn't walked foot in, those exact American men and women are bombing excessively over the past decade, "unidentified terrorists", which no doubt splash to the innocent deaths.

Did you hear about the mishap bombing from America the other day? No you probably missed that...

I've seen and heard testimonies, of American soldiers, speak of how sick and disgraced they are at the acts America has commited by its OWN MEN and woman out East. But not you....

America certainly has killed a lot of innocent people. If we go back in our reality of time line here.. remember the atomic bomb? How many Japanese deserved that? Add all the innocence that died by American hands or manufacturing.

Bite your tongue sir, and sober up from your patriotic drunk you've been dosing into your life. Good people DO NOT run America.
Good people do not KILL innocence.

America is part of the Bad and Evil on this planet. Don't come on these boards with crappy-outdated "I'm an American patriot, and I root for our military" bull#. This isn't the 1940's anymore.

This is 2015, and America is still warring in parts of the planet. Mainly for oil/gas resources for PROFIT, that YOU as an American pay for.
Also warring for DRUGS, like opium, while putting people behind bars for LIFE, for the same thing.

So when you wake up from your American-drunk, and you see reality for what it is, you see military as a resource of men and women to do ones bidding...

Then come back to these forums. Otherwise, say hello to Alice for me

Also, I don't agree with the ass hat you responded too, but I obviously didn't agree with your blind faith in America rant.

FYI - I forgot to add... American is NOT the only "pot" of different races/cultures. Almost every country with access to elecreticity is mixed ethnicities and cultures.

I wasn't always so.. I don't know, Grim? I'm still not i guess, Just when it comes to humans. Animals on the other hand i am very fond of and do nearly anything to protect and keep happy and healthy. One day I wish to open an animal rescue center for abused animals (by humans the bastards).

Thank you. I find this attitude often when speaking to Americans, Not all of them obviously - But the ones who are self absorbed in there own country and haven't a clue or ability to grasp whats going outside there own country. There media is on par with the NK propaganda that doesn't help the situation.

Indeed, with a hand from the White House.
Interesting times for sure.

The snowball PR job the media has done with Putin,
people think he is a strong teddy bear. And I recall
that moment when Obama granted him his "flexibility".

It was al-nusra. Their leader also said that all Syrians should rise up to kill Russian soldiers and civilians for destroying their land then offered a $3 million bounty to anyone who could kill Assad. $2 million for Hezbollahs leader.

You're doing great Russia! No. I was kidding. They're doing terrible, weakening themselves further, and have done nothing to prevent the advancement upon Assad.

When are people going to learn that these people in the mid east want to kill each other and no change in government or meeting of leaders will ever change that. They hate each other. Every country in the world can bomb the place to hell and it will definitely not stop people from hating each other. Just let them fight it out and let's get it over with. It sucks, but it's true. A bunch of people are going to have to die for this thing to be settled. So many people that there won't hardly be any people left to hate.

Russia has more right to bomb Syria than America or NATO. The legitimate Syrian government is one of Russia's closest allies. I think sometimes Americans forget after the 9/11 false flag, subsequent freedom sucking legislation that brought us all Homeland security, the TSA and the Snowden revelations and lets not forget the killing of hundreds of thousands of innocents including Americans in an unjust phony war on "terrorism" spanning the entire globe that only Hitler could be jealous of......

WE HAVE NO right to be over there in the first place or have any say. We have been arming different factions of "terrorists" for decades. Who are "rebels" and who are "terrorists" are only defined by tightly controlled US media who have already been given the story line.

America has become a predator, a conqueror, a nation who has forsaken it's core values and replaced them with corporate and political greed on a scale that this world has never seen. Tend to your own business before you accuse Russia of anything.....

Originally, I wasn't going to post in this thread because it regressed into yet another ... nevermind. But this post & your posts on page 2 compelled me.

Ironically, what you're describing is one part of Shaytan's path in my religion. He had no problems with God's other creatures, just with Adam. He refused to bow to Adam, was sentenced to Hell, then begged for a temporary reprieve. When given the reprieve, he vowed to corrupt mankind & lead as many people away from God as he could until the Day of Judgment. Now he has a furious hatred for all of mankind & tries to lead us to destroy ourselves, each other, & God's other creations.

It's kind of sad to see people like that because I once followed that path too. But it took many great people & incredible events to get me to understand the beauty in the human creation (plus God repeatedly chastised me & stopped me in humorous ways until I gave up). Anyway, if you only obsess over the flaws, of course you'll think we're all tainted. Perhaps you should try focusing on the positive things instead?

As for the OP: It was only a matter of time before some "rebels/mercs" fought back against Russia. I don't think it will matter much in the long run because Russia had to have expected this would happen. However, if the attacks on the embassy were like the attacks I'm about to link, all bets are off.
