But but but but but RT assured us that Hillary would be the one who started a war with Russia!

>The US-led coalition fighting ISIS in Syria conducted strikes against pro-regime forces in Syria Wednesday, the coalition said in a statement.

>The coalition said the strikes were carried out after forces allied to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "initiated an unprovoked attack" against a well-established Syrian Democratic Forces headquarters where coalition advisers were working with US-backed Syrian fighters.

>A US official told CNN that the attackers crossed the Euphrates River and were armed with artillery and other weapons. The US official said that US forces in the region counterattacked using artillery and aircraft.

>The official added that no US personnel were killed or wounded in the engagement.

>The official added that it was unclear exactly who the pro-regime forces were but the US is looking into whether Russian contractors operating in the vicinity might have been involved but added that there is no direct evidence yet that the Russians fired on the Syrian Democratic Forces facility where the US advisers were located. The official said they have not ruled out that Iranian backed-forces might have also been involved in the attack.

>"In defense of coalition and partner forces, the coalition conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression against partners engaged in the Global Coalition's defeat-Daesh mission," the coalition statement said, using the Arabic acronym for ISIS.

So.... What you're saying... Is that the military responded to an unprovoked attack, as it should?

And this is somehow Trump's fault?

Reminder; if the shitlibs had won the election, we'd be INVADING Syria, and thus guaranteeing a conflict with Russia.

And we'd also have another AWB.

>Syrian state television accused the United States of a “new aggression” on Thursday after U.S. warplanes bombed pro-government forces attempting to storm a U.S.-allied rebel base in the eastern desert.

>U.S. forces targeted the pro-government troops with airstrikes and artillery after they launched an attack against a base belonging to the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour, according to military spokesman Col. Thomas F. Veale.

>The hostilities erupted, he said, after a battalion-sized detachment of infantry — several hundred fighters — backed by tanks and artillery began advancing on a SDF position in the town of Khisham, located around five miles east of the informal deconfliction line established between the U.S. and Russian militaries last year.

>The clash came after a week in which the U.S. military had noted a build up of pro-government forces in the vicinity, and it appeared the advancing forces were intending to seize nearby oil fields that the SDF had captured from the Islamic State last year, Veale added.

CENTCOM is trying to keep a lid on it but apparently what happened was a unit of Russian mercenaries started the initial attack and then retreated through a Syrian position before dispersing.

>U.S. forces killed scores of Russian mercenaries in Syria last week in what may be the deadliest clash between citizens of the former foes since the Cold War, according to one U.S. official and three Russians familiar with the matter.

>More than 200 contract soldiers, mostly Russians fighting on behalf of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, died in a failed attack on a base held by U.S. and mainly Kurdish forces in the oil-rich Deir Ezzor region, two of the Russians said. The U.S. official put the death toll at about 100, with 200 to 300 injured.

>The Russian assault may have been a rogue operation, underscoring the complexity of a conflict that started as a domestic crackdown only to morph into a proxy war involving Islamic extremists, stateless Kurds and regional powers Iran, Turkey and now Israel. Russia’s military said it had nothing to do with the attack and the U.S. accepted the claim. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis called the whole thing “perplexing,” but provided no further details.

>President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, declined to comment on reports of Russian casualties, saying the Kremlin only tracks data on the country’s armed forces. Putin talked with U.S. President Donald Trump by phone Monday, but the military action in Syria wasn’t discussed, he said.

>Hassan says he had intelligence reports that the pro-regime attack was coming. So at 9:30 Wednesday night, about a half-hour before the assault began, he called his regular Russian liaison contact in Deir al-Zour — hoping to avoid a battle.

>“We told them there is some movement, and we don’t like to … attack on this movement. They [the Russians] don’t accept our offer and denied, said there’s nothing happening,” Hassan said through an interpreter. He was speaking to several reporters who traveled here Thursday with Maj. Gen. James B. Jarrard, who oversees U.S. Special Operations forces in Syria and Iraq.

>U.S. commanders attempted a similar de-confliction. According to a Pentagon statement Thursday, “Coalition officials were in regular communication with Russian counterparts before, during and after” the attack. “Russian officials assured coalition officials they would not engage coalition forces in the vicinity,” the statement said.

"lol what attack"

>Hassan said that as the carnage spread, the Russian liaison officer contacted him again, asking for a pause to collect the dead and wounded — from an attack he had earlier denied was coming. The Kurdish commander saw this as a breach of faith.

>“We don’t trust Russia anymore,” Hassan said. When a reporter asked about the irony of the Russian officer denying the attack and then asking for a truce, Hassan responded: “It’s funny that a superpower doesn’t know what their forces are conducting on the ground.”

I think it was clear enough that Kurds did not engage in battle. A standard tactic for a terrorist-supporting state like USA - attack first and then declare to be attacked (even if your enemy has no such capacity).

According to Russian local papers that have interviewed the families of the deceased, the mercenaries attacked because "local businessmen" promised them a share of the oil fields the Kurds had captured, and they thought the Kurds and Americans would surrender after getting shelled because they weren't strong manly men like Russians.

>President Trump’s nominee to serve as Secretary of State confirmed Thursday that “a couple hundred Russians were killed” by U.S. forces in Syria earlier this year.

>Mike Pompeo, who currently serves as CIA director, offered the confirmation in response to questions about the U.S. relationship with Russia. The February attack by U.S. special forces — acknowledged at the time by Russian and Syrian officials but until now unconfirmed by the U.S. — targeted pro-government Syrian forces who were working alongside Russian mercenaries.

>“In Syria, now, a handful of weeks ago the Russian met their match,” Pompeo told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “A couple hundred Russians were killed.”

>The Violations Documentation Center (VDC), a Syrian opposition network which records alleged violations of international law in Syria, said bodies were found foaming at the mouth, and with discoloured skin and cornea burns.
Why don't you go and check on a huge and absolutely terrorizing violation of international law like occupation of areas of sovereign state of Syria by foreign invaders.

>On Thursday, unnamed US officials told NBC News they had obtained blood and urine samples from victims which had tested positive for chlorine and a nerve agent.
>The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Hayley, told the network: "We definitely have enough proof but now we just have to be thoughtful in our action."

Apparently no proof at all is enough proof to do anything. Even as much as further destroy said country and violate every possible right of it's citizens. After all you can just blame everything on Assad if you play out well.

Though it is already not news that >>118155 gas cylinder was produced in Germany, more news emerge from abandoned chemical laboratories and underground storages captured and cleared Douma. And I'm not talking about bodies of executed civilians, of course.

>Russian military finds alleged chemical weapons lab in Douma
>Syria: Inside hospital to which alleged Douma chemical attack victims were brought

>The head of the largest medical relief agency in Syria claims that medics who responded to the suspected gas attack in Douma have been subjected to “extreme intimidation” by Syrian officials who seized biological samples, forced them to abandon patients and demanded their silence.
>“There has been a very heavy security presence on the ground ever since the attack and they have been targeting doctors and medics in a very straightforward way,”
>now in Turkey where he is supervising the departure from Syria of some of the Douma medics
>“Any medic who tried to leave Douma was searched so vigorously, especially for samples. At one medical point, seven casualties were taken away. The Russian military police were heavily involved. They were directing things.

It is very kind of these people to list number of methods of information control and warfare they use. Because they have no information on what methods are used by Syria and Russia, it is natural for them to project their own experience and attribute it to their sworn enemy.

>Chemical weapons inspectors' security team fired on in Douma
The tone of the article is rather shifting back to neutral gear.

Unfortunately, we already know that there's no breaks on this train, and US or UK will never, ever admit anything. Forget they can, of course, they will forget it after a week. But after a week, new bullshit will start over again.

>A US-led coalition bombed key targets in what were described as “pinpoint airstrikes” by Michael Fallon, who was then the UK’s defence secretary, when the city was finally liberated last July.

>The RAF struck more than 750 targets during the campaign to liberate the city, second only to the US, according to the Ministry of Defence.

>“The high velocity, high explosive weapons have a huge range and using these weapons in tightly packed urban areas is a major risk. You might be targeting snipers or a group of [Isil] fighters but if they’re closely surrounded by large numbers of civilians you can expect substantial casualties,” he said.

As I mentioned once before, the concept of "precision strike" is largely misleading when applied to practical use - mainly because how MSM use it as a hallmark for "democratic" wars rather than "illegal" ones. It's not like other kinds of war are more safe or effective than this kind of force projection, but they are certainly less cynical.

It's not like ISIS makes a less of a threat if they killed less civilians and destroyed less of infrastructure than so-called "anti-ISIS" coalition, but it certainly changes priorities. It was stated many times before, that the terrorism is not the cause of current situation per se, it is a problem itself, and fighting a problem without realizing the cause of it puts you into positive feedback that escalates the trouble continuously.

And, of course, no one is going to help them repair their houses.

  Oh, isn't that a beautiful example. The observations on a site in Aleppo where the Al Nusra terrorist groups organized their hospitals. You can observe a similar picture everywhere in the rest of Syria where the government forces were fighting "democratic" insurgents.

Too bad Raqqa isn't given such attention at all - it was just bombed to dust by coalition and nobody even goes there any more. It's not controlled by government force, nor by American coalition, and may as well end up as another point of insurrection.


>Airstrikes by the US-led coalition in Raqqa, Syria, probably breached international humanitarian law and potentially amount to war crimes, according to a report by Amnesty International that is being hotly contested by the Pentagon.

>The rights group accuses the coalition of killing and injuring thousands of civilians in attacks that were at times "disproportionate or indiscriminate," during its offensive to flush ISIS militants from their de facto capital.
