I remember Kunduz airstrike in 2009

Responding to a call by German forces, an American F-15E fighter jet struck two fuel tankers captured by Taliban insurgents, killing over 90 civilians in the attack.[2]

Our defense minister resigned (although not his fault!!) because of this. Where is the outrage now?

I know right. Why can't he be like our sweet president and administration?

Can truly no one see through this grand deception, of which, this newest facade is just another razor edged puzzle piece? So much happening; so very quickly... Prepare yourselves, for the inevitable is approaching faster than most would choose to believe it could; or believe it even exists.

Another day, another Russian war crime. They have no respect for human life. When will the war criminal and mass murderer Vladimir Putin be brought to justice?

please post your proof for war crimes, Russia is not the enemy, the U.S. is turning them into our enemy. Our government is the problem here. You know, another problem with your statement is "THEY have no respect for life." Are you speaking for all Russians? If you are I weep for your ignorance. Actually Putin has much respect for life if you ever dare to watch his speeches or how he handles the press.

The US state department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement: “The destination of this convoy was known to the Syrian regime and the Russian federation and yet these aid workers were killed in their attempt to provide relief to the Syrian people.”


Maybe they knew more than the UN and Uncle Sam are letting us know about. Due to the fact that the anti assad alliance from the West has been providing ISIS with funds, logistics, air support and funding it's not too far fetched that this convoy was a weapons shipment to the "moderate rebels" who accidentally behead children, it was a mistake they said.

I'm speculating but wouldn't be surprised if I was bang on.

Question everything.

This right here is exactly what my friends from Aleppo are saying happened. Do not think for a second the psychopaths who have been arming Daesh would think twice about using a UN Aid Convoy to deliver weapons.

Matter of fact I would call it an SOP.

How many times has the US bomb Doctors without Boarders locations in the middle east. UN Aid Convoy was probably smuggling illegal arms or equipment to terrorist they claim are "rebels". Let's remember, Russia was invite to help Syria, unlike the US government.

The rebels have stopped this shipment before, in protest of becoming the US's enemy under the conditions of the ceasefire agreement, i'ts more likely they blew it up(if they were smart,the trucks would be empty,or close to)
The aid convoy was being delivered to Syria's enemy, (Al-nusra) an affiliate of Al-Qaeda, the shipment was not inspected(as was requested)
The aid would feed and treat the occupying terrorists first and secondly be used to recruit more fighters against the SAA.

I'm positive by now the USA or Russia would have provided radar data of the alleged Russian/Syrian airstrike . But curiously this has not happened

- US did not produce any evidence - they should have radar/air rec evidence if there is
- Russia denies, says no airstrikes happenend. The images of the convoi don t show craters or bomb damage. it looks more like a fire
- UN now says they can't confirm an airstrike, opening the possibility of it being a ground attack

Less times than the Russians have.

Lets remember Syria is okay with the US bombing ISIS in that pretty much negates them from not having permission to do so.

The russians publish drone footage of the convoi, clearly showing a truck with mortar gun next to it.

UN convoi with mortar gun

Has any one seen any English language sources for the following, in this video I'll link from 1:35 it talks about a Russian launched missile attack on an intelligence base which killed 30 American, British, Israeli, Quatari and Turkish intelligence officers near Alleppo. Not sure of the veracity of South Front media.

All UN aid convoys should have a Syrian and/or Russian escort, to ensure they reach the correct destination and to ensure they aren't false vehicles used in a CIA op to arm the Islamists. That way stuff like this won't happen again.

Well the UN convoy was delivering resources to rebel/opposition held territory, people that Russia is fighting against and people who work along side ISIS to take down Assad. Maybe if the UN and the western world tried supporting the right side of the war Russia wouldn't need to target such convoys and they could be sent in with proper protection because they wouldn't need to hide what they were doing.

Also I have to laugh at Kerry and his little speech about this attack the other night. The hypocrisy was almost too strong to handle. Almost immediately after the U.S. bombs Syrian soldiers and upsets the cease fire, the U.S. feels it's ok to roast Russia for doing a similar thing, although it's arguable that the Russian attack was a retaliation attack and at least they attacked a group working against Assad.

That convoy was bombed by the same terrorists that used chemical weapons in Gouta in 2013. All terrorist groups supported and funded by the EU
