    Not only are Hoebama and CIA arming al-Qaeda and ISIS, now they’re throwing veiled threats that their terrorists may attack Russian cities. Congress should immediately impeach Hoebama and set the process in motion to have him and CIA/State leaders and officials imprisoned in ADX Florence with other terrorists and traitors.


    Russia says U.S. Syria statement shows Washington supports terrorism

    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-russia-idUSKCN11Z0RI

    Russia is outraged by the threatening tone of the latest U.S. statement on Syria, viewing it as tantamount to supporting terrorism, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Thursday, according to Russian news agencies.

    Ryabkov was referring to a statement made by U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby who said on Wednesday that Russia had an interest in stopping the violence in Syria because extremists could exploit the vacuum there and launch attacks "against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities."

    "We cannot interpret this as anything else apart from the current U.S. administration's de facto support for terrorism," Ryabkov was quoted as saying.​

    You’re welcome. Funny how Russia’s trying to eliminate al-Qaeda and ISIS, while Hoebama and CIA are arming al-Qaeda and ISIS and trying to protect their terrorists by threatening Russia into not killing the terrorists. If there is one thing I know for certain—arming and protecting al-Qaeda and ISIS is the “Hope and Change” you voted for.

    Sounds like the Russian Foreign Ministry has descended into paranoid madness.

    Considering that Hoebama and CIA have conspired with 9/11 Saudis to arm al-Qaeda and ISIS, I think that the Russians in this case probably are being fairly rational in their response.

    So a person who supports a communist country is a comrade? Thanks for confirming it! The tangents one could go from here are amazing, might be too much for some...

    And Libya, didn't the US arm Al Qaeda in 2012 because they were ironically the better of the two sides? I'd have to look it up. I only remember something vaguely at the time that seemed to make no sense.

    Besides, all the compromises, even when Obama had the upper hand as claimed by some (e.g. TYT, assuming they are being on the level and I've to remember not to take any news presentation at face value, whether it's from them or right-wing sources claiming moderators are not allowed to wear earpieces when it turns out they are allowed to after all), but was there hope and change? Arguably, I could go back and forth all day agreeing or refuting it since examples of both do exist, the issues are still of scale and temporal natures...

    Yes, Killary and Hoebama with CIA (as usual) armed al-Qaeda and other jihadist ‘rebels,’ who used those weapons to perpetrate the Black Libyan Genocide among other atrocities. Killary and Hoebama kill black men and women. They then began shipping weapons from Libya to Turkey then on to Syria to arm al-Qaeda and ISIS there, I mean ‘moderate rebels [1][2].’


    Hillary Clinton, ‘Smart Power’ and a Dictator’s Fall

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/28/us/politics/hillary-clinton-libya.html

    Libya’s descent into chaos began with a rushed decision to go to war, made in what one top official called a “shadow of uncertainty” as to Colonel Qaddafi’s intentions. The mission inexorably evolved even as Mrs. Clinton foresaw some of the hazards of toppling another Middle Eastern strongman. She pressed for a secret American program that supplied arms to rebel militias, an effort never before confirmed.


    Killary’s War (feat. The Black Libyan Genocide)



    Military to Military

    http://www.lrb.co.uk/v38/n01/seymour-m-hersh/military-to-military

    The military’s resistance dates back to the summer of 2013, when a highly classified assessment, put together by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, then led by General Martin Dempsey, forecast that the fall of the Assad regime would lead to chaos and, potentially, to Syria’s takeover by jihadi extremists, much as was then happening in Libya. A former senior adviser to the Joint Chiefs told me that the document was an ‘all-source’ appraisal, drawing on information from signals, satellite and human intelligence, and took a dim view of the Obama administration’s insistence on continuing to finance and arm the so-called moderate rebel groups. By then, the CIA had been conspiring for more than a year with allies in the UK, Saudi Arabia and Qatar to ship guns and goods – to be used for the overthrow of Assad – from Libya, via Turkey, into Syria. The new intelligence estimate singled out Turkey as a major impediment to Obama’s Syria policy. The document showed, the adviser said, ‘that what was started as a covert US programme to arm and support the moderate rebels fighting Assad had been co-opted by Turkey, and had morphed into an across-the-board technical, arms and logistical programme for all of the opposition, including Jabhat al-Nusra (al-Qaeda) and Islamic State. The so-called moderates had evaporated and the Free Syrian Army was a rump group stationed at an airbase in Turkey.’ The assessment was bleak: there was no viable ‘moderate’ opposition to Assad, and the US was arming extremists.

    It serves the interests of Russia to frustrate the policy interests of the United States.

    Washington's message to Moscow: YOUR terrorist are OUR freedom fighters.:p;)

    I thought the Cold War ended when Gorby and Ray-Gun played nice-nice a few decades back. US and Russia, still frienemies, still fighting proxy wars.

    State Dept. Spokesperson John Kirby: If Russia doesn’t quit murdering our jihadist terrorists—ahem, our moderate rebels—then Russia is going to be sending more Russian soldiers home in body bags and have additional Russian planes shot down, possibly Russian cities attacked. This is Hope and Change you voted for.

    This is one of the things the invisible hand does behind the scenes.

    Do you honestly believe that Syria's war against the rebels is winable? The war has been going on for five and half years. Five and a half years of misery, five and half years of destruction, five and ahalf years of atrocities, of war crimes, and of power vaccums. It's time to head to the negotiating table, end this senseless war, and prepare a stable, post Assad Syrian state that's strong enough to expel ISIS.

    It's the position of the US Sate Department that the Russian presence is prolonging the conflict, and is contributing to the power vacuum that ISIS is currently exploiting.
