The Russians still support Assad? Sad

everyone seems to forget about the 2 kilo of sarin the Turkish siezed from a house on the border that belonged to the FSA, or the uploads of A Nusra showing their chemical weapons plant in Syria, or the fact that they went on record saying they would use chemical weapons against the regime and were caught doing so???

Many comments about weapons, missiles BUT there are thousands of people, innocent people, women, kids, who have already suffered a lot, and would the most,
of course not to say about other consequences.
I fully agree with Billy Bennet Castel that
"unity of the (people) of all nations will be enough to bring this insanity to an end".

Would be terrible if those chemical weapons were hit by a cruise missiles and thousands off Al Qaeda and Al Nusra terrorists were killed just as they were all dreaming off marching on Damascus.Assad could then thank the USA for kiilling the rebels for him.

Syria has enough conventional weapons to defeat the motley crew of rebels made up off 'Alqieada' and their Zionist masters. Increasingly the alleged gas appears to be' made in Zion'. After those 3 buildings collapse on its own footprint, few sensible and intelligent folks will believe the western warmongers. They are bankrupt and need a war. This time they will be chewing more than they can eat. It is time for Russia and China to put aside their differences and warn these adventurers to pull their heads in.

Not to mention the Yakhont anti-ship missle for which the Russians supplied an upgraded version to Syria in May 2013. Anything in the water near Cyprus or east of it could easily become scrap metal at the bottom of the sea. Maybe this is the real reason the US/Israelis/KSA are going after Syria.

“We have not yet tested the S-300 in a combat environment,” - Kornukov.

This will never end at the hands of government. It sounds like a pipe dream; but only the unity of the (people) of all nations will be enough to bring this insanity to an end.

Everybody whatever religion you belong to should pray for peace.


Abu Yezen 26.08.2013 14:54

Seriously? Are people in that stupid to believe the US (and cronies) stories? The UN team arrived to investigate alleged CW attacks which occurred months ago, but now they're too late to investigate something which happened Wednesday last week? Also, why use CW as the UN arrives, unless it is the rebels who used them, trying to pin the blame on the Government of Syria. People please wake up!

If the United States attacks Syria then i hope Russia attacks western troops which would allow the allies to destroy the Russian military


Do you even have an idea of what a war on that scale would look like? It would start as a conventional war, then as one side starts to loose the upper hand, there would be a limited nuclear strike, followed by a response. Its at this point we contemplate annihilation and if we go through with a full nuclear exchange we'll have wiped the majority of life out on the planet.

Russia should no by now that the American military is too superior to their flintstones army


Donkey, their is no superiority to nuclear weapons everyone loses.


wangolo joel 26.08.2013 08:36

Yeah this is a true definition of False flag, we can use our own concisious to judget that the Sryian governement can't do that on it's own citizen. And "MG" for your own information. Note this what King Solomon of acient said. "Not always will the strongest army win a war". with whatever USA is having Militarily can't mean that it can't be defeat.


JailBanksters 26.08.2013 08:26

Why this is a False Flag....
The USA and UK have already decided the Syrian Government is to blame before all the facts are in.
Exactly the same as what hapened in New York on that sunny day.


Mg 26.08.2013 07:55

Russia should no by now that the American military is too superior to their flintstones army


Norm S 26.08.2013 07:31

All statements by the USA, UK, and NATO must be treated as lies until proven otherwise.

Would you like a slice of "yellowcake uranium" with your imaginary WMD's ?

This chemical gas has "made in Isreal" written all over it.


Dan Hughes 26.08.2013 07:12

I don't think UK US or Israel are worried about threats made by Iran or any other nation.They will do what has to be done and then you can criticize.It will not happen until Russia is informed on their intentions.One thing that Israel will not like is the fact that Russia is an ally of the terrorist group Hezbolah.This fact alone could make a big difference


randy watson 26.08.2013 06:28

assad did not use chemical weapons. the syrian government has enough conventional weapons to fight the rebel terrorists. the terrorists have been caught in iraq and syria with sarin gas. the rebels need the usa/europe to intervene, because they are often running out of supplies. it just wouldnt make any sense for assad to use chemical weapons and it would make perfect sense for the rebels to use chemical weapons
