    I was wondering when this was going to happen.

    Syria invited the Russians in, not us.

    This is most despicable.

    In my childhood, I had the illusion that we were somehow the good guys, and the Russians were the bad guys. When did it happen that we became the bad guys?

    1. Syria is not a sovereign state in good standing.
    2. The Russians are the bad guys, they took Crimea and two Ukrainian provinces by force.
    3. The US is protecting the oil fields for the Kurds and to prevent ISIS and Assad/Russia from using it.
    4. What's despicable is your misunderstanding of what happened in Syria regarding ISIS.

    Here's a brief refresher:

    1. Who says, the folks that want their oil and territory? :auiqs.jpg:
    2. Crimea has been Russian territory since Catherine the Great. History bro, do you know it?
    3. Syrian territory, Syrian Kurds needs to either campaign for someone else or leave.
    4. ISIS is a creation of Turkish, Saudi Arabian, Israeli and American intelligence agencies funding, arming and training radical elements in the middle east to achieve their Geo-political and economic policy agenda. Either stop being so naive, or stop knowingly spreading Anglo-American propaganda.

    Who gets to decide which sovereign states are in good standing or not?

    Sorry but Russia ain't the good guys. They are killing citizens every single day by bombing their homes, hospitals, schools and the camps where they fled from the wars.


    Daily post after post of the people being bombed by Russian planes.

    Those in the refugee camp at Rukban were denied humanitarian relief when they were starving by Russian forces. The UN made a deal that Russia would be in charge of signing off repatriation of those Syrians back into Syria and some of those escaped back to Rukban to tell their horror stories of torture and abuse. Some of those are the ones being bomb now by Russia. 12,000 of the 40,000 that were at Rukban who remain refuse to leave the safety of that camp near a US base even though they have been starved out and are dying there because they know its better than being in the hands of Assad or the Russians.

    She gathers her son's remains from the ground around his dead body as she recalls in anguish what a beautiful boy he had been. Her son was murdered after Russian planes targeted their house in #Aleppo countryside today. This is a horror no mother should endure. #Syria

    . . . . or?

    I did some deep CT research on some heavily censored stuff. . . you can't even find the PRESS TV stuff anymore, at least my ISP won't let me access it, I just get a blank page.

    I did get a mirror on Live leak.

    I found confirmation at an IMF page.

    Sooooo. . . It seems likely Assad told the IMF to go pound sand when they recommended something called a "FISCAL POLICY FRAMEWORK," as it would enslave the nation like every other nation on the planet.

    For context, you need to know the truth about Libya, and have read Gaddafi's green-book.

    Muslim's have a radically different view of banking than folks in the West.

    Rothschild national banks are behind the attacks on Syria.
