Russia intervened on the invitation of the legal Syrian government. The USA was not requested to get involved.


The brutal Assad dictatorship is Russia's pawn in the region, so of course it issued an 'invitation'. So what? Either condemn all imperialist and neo-imperialist interventions in the region, or none, and at least be consistent.


Is he brutal? :?: Who says so? :?: Where is the evidence? :idea: The Syrian people a while back, voted him and his government back into power ........... does that not tell you something?

70% of Syrian territory is now in Government hands and about 80% of the population, including all the displaced Syrians are now under the protection of the Syrian Army. In Alleppo it has been the Russians that have been providing all the aid and medical facilities ....... where was the UN? The US supported terrorists are losing the battle and the war!

The terrorists have been driven into an enclave in Idlib and, day by day, the rebel held areas are shrinking. Now try turning on your brain ....... QUI BONO? Who benefitted from this US intervention, in fact an act of war? Certainly not Assad!

The 2013 Ghouta incident was shown after all the evidence was considered, more likely to have been instigated and carried out by rebel (Terrorist) factions than Assad. Assad had nothing to gain, like now ......... the rebels had everything to gain by getting the dumb-assed west to take on Assad and save them the trouble. Thanks to Russian intervention that trick failed and the problem was solved without any destruction or civilian deaths!

But, guess what .......... the west has fallen for the same trick again!!!! :evil:

As I said on September 20 2016 (see: cyprus45194-20.html?hilit=amnesty%20international#p848867):

“I posted some quotes from an Amnesty International report on Syria here:

cyprus44082-350.html?hilit=amnesty%20international#p826260

and of course, for somebody who endlessly rails on about what he calls the 'MSM' yet unquestioningly accepts everything the Putin propaganda machine churns out, it all fell on deaf ears. When the same family has ruled a country for 46 years, this is a pretty good sign that there is a totalitarian regime.”

I am tempted to accuse you of being inflexible in your thoughts, but I suppose you have done a 180 degree U-turn over Donald Trump now, and that's pretty damn flexible. Or, if you haven't visited any of your whacko far-right conspiracy theory sites of late where you copy the stuff that you pass off as your 'opinion', maybe you need to know that the line has changed. See:

The global arch-criminals fired 59 missiles yet didn't achieve much from what I can see in these videos...

It looks like you're trying very hard to fill in the IDIOT vacuum left behind with Paphitis' departure!

I was just thinking the same thing! If this doesn't get the General out from under whatever stone he is hiding under ...... nothing will. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Which was in response to my comment ....... which I still stand by. In stead of believing everything you read in the newspapers ..... try looking for some sources that back their opinions with some facts. :roll:

“I posted some quotes from an Amnesty International report on Syria here:

cyprus44082-350.html?hilit=amnesty%20international#p826260

Amnesty International :lol: quoting Syrian Observatory of Human Rights :lol: and the White Helmets :roll: .... yeah, really credible sources1 :lol:

Well, Sonny-Boy, you keep reading your comics ...... one day, when you are an old man like me, you will look back on all this and realise just how gullible you were for official narrative. Like events in Ghouta, the truth will eventually come out but you will miss it ...... because you are looking in the wrong places!


The Windsor's by whatever name, have ruled the UK for well over a century ...... do you include them and all the other European Royals? :roll:

I was just reading that! Apparently 'only' 23 hit the target ..... the whereabouts of the other 36 is unknown. An interesting point if it turns out to be true. It looks as if the ability to jam the guidance system that the Russians have and demonstrated in the Black Sea some time ago, may have put them down into the sea. Apparently ........ these missiles cost almost $2m dollars each! You would think Trump would put that money toward giving Americans health care like other civilised countries do? :wink:

And to think they were relatively close firing from <500 miles away as opposed to the Russians at 1500 miles, and with only two falling short.

I’m sure glad none of the strays landed on Cyprus… wouldn't it be funny though if they landed in Israel and flattened Trump’s son in law's house? :lol:
