I knew Russia was scared of Israel when they quickly changed their minds about the s-300 deliveries to Syria, as soon as Israel said: "we will know what to do"

I just can't wait to see what we find in Syria. There must be something very important for Russia and Iran there. Maybe some never found weapons from Iraq?

The same "practice launch" they did on the Syrian ppl with a chemical warhead.??? Only they would kill their enemies children. Pure evil. I find it very ironic this whole situation. Then having America fight their battles , having our soldiers die or become severely disabled or mentally traumatized for their politic fights. All we are doing is clearing the path for them to claim more land and resources and fighting their enemies so they don't have to, having the world hate us rather than them. Sickening.

Gordon Duff has an interesting take: that the Israel fired the missle to provoke the Russians (false flag) & the Americans actually caught on and shot it down. Just google Gordon Duff & key words like Sparrow missle. It's on his Vererans Today site. It's quite interesting.

USA is warmongering with Israel planning to kill innocent Syrian civilians who are so proud of their country they are forming a voluntary human shield to protect the areas being targeted by USA military. USA are the cause of death and destruction in the middle east and Obama does not have any credibility for failing to close GITMO which he promised to do. The cannibal terrorist rebels are using poison gas in a desperate attempt to involve USA by blaming Mr Assad's troops which is totally ridiculous as Mr Assad is winning against the USA backed cannibal terrorists and it would not be at all logical for him to do this.

Where is a Ban Ki Moon ? what is the point of the UN?

My office 3000+ people has began to boycott all US stores as a protest against this evil regime who cannot stop themselves killing people starting wars and telling lies.


I was talking to my neighbour and I was astonished that he too does not belive what Obama is telling us. May more people stand up against these war mongers!!!

He is thanking the soldiers becuase they are going to die fighting another needless war for the Rothschilds.

Defend your home land, your, family, moral values and beliefs but sending missiles into populated towns and cities when no one is fighting you - is gutless and immoral there is no gallantry in this war.

It is time for Americans to stand up against JEWbama and his zionist neocon masters. Israhell rules the US government, and AIPAC has most senators and congressmen in their pocket. The zionists even have their own police force in the USA: The DHS. Wake up America. Stop supporting the war mongering zionists!

Whenever the US NWO government "practices" ; we know a strike is imminent.
Before 9/11 they were doing a military exercise before they destroyed the twin towers

It was for target practice on Syria. These idiots wont be happy until we have nuclear war.

Pure unadulterated provocation on the part of Israel supported by puppet US.

Yes, I am aware of some of Iran's capabilities. Hezbollah can cause a lot of damage too. Also, once oil hits $150, it is the end for Western Europe and Japan. You would not need to export nuclear technology to everybody; otherwise you could be in a tough legal position.

We have a lot of differences with the current regime in Iran, but what the Imperialists are doing now is nothing short of Madness. So, a lot of entities with "different beliefs" could join forces against aggression ....

All pals together, I mean what more proof do you need ??

Yes, it is time for Russia to take some initiatives, but it is still wise to distinguish itself as a country respecting International Law. Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Israel should get some taste of lethal power .....

We know that Iran has the capabilities of causing havoc to the Gulf oil industry and crippling the western economies. In case of a war with Syria, Iran has no other alternative but to retaliate because it is NEXT.

Yes, this is if you can fire them from your Dolphin submarines or Jericho-3 missiles, but the Russians would NOT allow you to do that. They have far bigger capabilities, and their size is a big advantage. Israel cannot survive a SINGLE Hit by Topol-M.

In addition, the Borei Russian nuclear subs, some of which are stationed in the Gulf of Mexico could each wipe out an entire continent with the 200 nuclear warheads that each carries.

Ev en, Israel cannot survive a massive Iranian missile attack.

Your Netanyahu is MAD, exactly like Hitler.
