I dont understand the reasoning behind celebrating those 100+ Russian deaths.

Now ISIS and the "moderate" rebels will in turn gain ground.

Russia is there by invitation. We are not.

They WILL kill hundreds of our guys now in retaliation...., anyone who thinks different is an idiot.

EDIT TO ADD:
WHY are we in Syria again?



They were mercs (hired killers), don't glorify them.

Oh & the group the Russians attacked were anti ISIS militia.



The mission of that night's operation remains unclear, but the forces were advancing towards a valuable oil and gas field, Coneco, controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a US-backed militia that has been fighting ISIS in Syria.

When the pro-regime forces began shelling a base held by the SDF, the US responded with heavy airstrikes and artillery fire, which continued for about three hours.

US commanders tried to reach their Russian counterparts through what are known as deconfliction channels, to warn of their response. But by the time communications were established, the counterattack was underway.

Damn they hit the mercs with Spooky, ouch wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of that.

So too are the US forces, fighting for bankers and imperialists in far off foreign lands.

The Iraq war had 3 mercenaries for every official US soldier. They were paid upwards of 10 times what we paid our guys. They were exempt from prosecution under the law. (So they could rape, torture, shoot into crowds, whatever.)

The military was just a cover for a private army tasked with pillaging a sovereign country on behalf of war profiteers.

I know they were mercs. Now Russia can and WILL kill hundreds of our guys.


Also dont think for a second that the crowd on ATS is oblivious to the fact that the US is supporting terrorists in Syria.


Will you guys be so cocky when a US base is shelled, or when a convoy is ambushed. Maybe they wait a year.

Anyone celebrating an escalation to a useless war is an idiot.

WHY ARE WE IN SYRIA?
