The US involvement in Syria clearly is not America’s best moment. We got involved at the behest of our “allies” Saudi Arabia and Israel. Like so many “wars” we fight in, we let the CIA and the US military organize things. We send lots of military hardware to those we support, to include ISIS. CIA groups fought against our military groups. And it all failed.
On Wednesday evening, we broke the almost unbelievable story that the Russian Defense Ministry was claiming that:
A) ‘US Secret Services’ had directed a major offensive against Russian – Syrian forces,
B) a goal was the capture of 29 Russian peacekeepers,
C) the attack was foiled in dramatic, heavy fighting involving many Russian troops,
D) the US-backed and directed forces suffered a devastating defeat. Losses included:
850 TERRORISTS, 11 TANKS, 46 PICKUPS, 20 TRUCKS and 38 WEAPONS WAREHOUSES!
