I don't like the look of the little mushroom cloud.

There are reports everywhere about a bombing taking place in an Iranian base near Aleppo, and tons of counter claims saying this is 'a complete lie to boost the morale of yesterday's failed attack'.

Not even sure who to believe at this moment.

The only ones to really worry about would be Russia honestly, and Israel and Russia have had a good working relationship on Syria.

If it's an Iranian base, it's almost certainly Israel, if anything is going on. They've said repeatedly they won't allow an Iranian presence, and bombed Iranian targets repeatedly.

Weird.
This is apparently Hezbollah's official statement:

#هام
لا صحة لما يتم تداوله عبر بعض المواقع الإلكترونية ومواقع التواصل الإجتماعي نقلاً عن إعلام العدو الصهيوني وتنسيقيات المسلحين، عن غارة للعدو "الإسرائيلي" في ريف حلب الجنوبي وكذلك في الجنوب السوري، وتأتي هذه الإشاعات في محاولة لرفع معنويات الإرهابيين بعد الخيبة التي أصيبوا بها جراء فشل العدوان الثلاثي على سوريا.

#الإعلام_الحربي_المركزي

Which translates to:

#Important
Not true to what is traded through some websites and social networking sites, quoting the Zionist enemy and the coordination of armed militants, the raid of the enemy "Israeli" in the countryside of southern Aleppo as well as in the south of Syria, and these rumors in an attempt to raise the morale of terrorists after the disappointment they suffered from failure Tripartite aggression against Syria.

#Information_Alarmi_central

... I just noticed it's not a Syria general thread which I thought it is for some reason.

Russia will not attack an RAF base over Syria and cause WW3, they aren't idiots.

Agreed. Only brown people will die in this proxy.
That is the tragedy.



More along the lines:

That is the agreement.

it's pretty obvious someone in the syrian government or military was involved, but even then facts are for court cases not military operations or foreign policy.

i honestly don't care either way if they did because the iraqi government needed removed regardless, better not having a hostile future iraq with nukes and a vast chemical weapons capability, a moderately neutral iraq without either one was the best option when ending the war and reducing our presence like we intended from the start.

in the end the national interests of america is my biggest concern, not chemical weapons, wmd, political ideology, genocide, or human rights. it's nice to care but be honest if america didn't act in ending the ceasefire the way we did we would've had a future enemy that would've been a threat to our bases throughout the region, to europe and to israel directly.

a threat to america or any ally is unacceptable in my opinion, even if people hate us for it i still think it was the best decision to make.

Yep. They used a Ticonderoga, three Burkes, and a Virginia in the Med, along with the manned assets out of the UK, Italy, France, Cyprus, and Qatar.


Come to think of it, it may be very wise to keep that level of asset- a carrier group- out of harm's way just in case.....

The US/UK/France/Russia involvment is contrived and based on geo-politics and money more than the lives of faraway brown people.

That's one thing I noticed, is it me or is France moving a little to the North of "playground" the PTB gave them? I thought they have been limited to Africa and Lebanon, not Syria.

The strike on Syria involved the US/UK/France and it only targeted and destroyed Syrian property.

If Russia retaliates against any one of those 3 nations it would qualify as an attack on a NATO country. The result of that is an article V invocation.

I don't imagine any war with Russia would be a cake walk, and 100,000s of people would possibly die on both sides, billions should it ever go full-blown nuclear exchange. Certainly, something i never wish to witness nor ever be involved with having grown up in the cold war era.

I do imagine through eventually NATO would gain the upper hand air superiority wise and after that, it's really all just downhill unless nuclear weapons were released.

If Russia was to strike at our base on Cyprus that would be one very serious mistake by the Russians and it would cause massive sanction's and also massive retaliatory strikes on there assets - or proxy asset's - in the region before a UN council then tried to calm the waters, the Russians have already under estimated both our real (not official) capability and our resolve as well as how much backing we have from the international community and how much support we can call on.
If they strike at our air base they will also be violating Greek Territory in the process which I doubt they want to do as that would not go down very well among the Russian Orthodox community back home now would it.

The Russians did it to make it look like Assad did it, in a bid to weaken him before he gets retired. Assad's days are numbered. Iran and Russia will usher in a new Syrian administration. Israel will scrap hard to try to light a bigger spark and discord. They may even throw a propper punch; as opose to all the proxy ducking and weaving that is our spectacle at present. Maybe UK caught wind of the fiendish rusky plot and faked a spy poisoning drama on the streets of middle England in order to point le stinky finger. fantastictheory
