Anyone paying attention to war on Syria, following reliable independent sources for credible information, avoiding media scoundrel propaganda, knows the conflict is Obama’s war, using terrorists as imperial foot soldiers, supported by Pentagon-led “coalition” air power.
On Thursday, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman General Igor Konashenkov blasted State Department spokesman admiral John Kirby’s scurrilous remark, suggesting (US-supported) extremists could launch “attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities…(its) troops (sent) home in body bags.”
He called his remarks the clearest “confession by the US side (that so-called) civil war in Syria is a US-controlled international terrorist alliance” against a sovereign independent state.
“What makes Kirby’s statement particularly shocking is that the scale of direct US influence on terrorists’ activity is global. That it reaches as far as Russia. The mask (is) off…” It was off long ago.
Konashenkov explained Russia “knows well as to where in Syria, including Aleppo province, there are ‘clandestine specialists’ who do the operations planning and command the militants’ operations and how many of them there are.”
“Should there follow any attempts to act on the threats towards Russia and Russian military servicemen in Syria, the militants may find themselves short of both body bags and the time to get away.”
Russian General Staff’s Main Operational Directorate first deputy chief General Viktor Poznikhir said “terrorist groups are preparing provocative attacks with chemical weapons on Syrian army positions and residential areas in (eastern) Aleppo to accuse government forces” of the high crime.
