The fight against the Syrian government and ISIS is nothing more than a game of Risk being played by Russia and America. President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton funded and armed ISIS (Benghazi 2012) to oust President Bashar al-Assad. Russia is backing the Syrian government. The Syrians and ISIS are pawns in a war about to explode.
Last week U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby laid down the gauntlet. He threatened attacks on Russian cities if they continued their fight against ISIS. To poke the bear even harder, he insinuated Russian aircraft would be shot down if they interfered.
“Extremist groups will continue to exploit the vacuums that are there in Syria to expand their operations, which could include attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities. Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags, and will continue to lose resources, perhaps even aircraft,” Kirby told reporters at Wednesday’s press briefing, adding that if the war in Syria continues “more Russian lives will be lost, more Russian aircraft will be shot down.”
Washington has since been openly entertaining the idea of strikes against Syria. Russian defense ministry spokesman, Major-General Igor Konashenkov stated in a briefing Thursday that any aircraft attacking the Syrian government forces would encounter resistance.
“I would recommend our colleagues in Washington to thoroughly consider the possible consequences of the realization of such plans.”
Mainstream media outlets ignored Kirby’s initial threat, deliberately not reporting on it. When covering Russia’s response, they continued to protect Obama by failing to mention it again.
Vladimir Putin is backing up his warnings. Russia conducted evacuation drills with 40 million of its people this past week.
“’Federal agencies, heads of regions, local authorities and other organizations will take part in the massive exercise, which runs from October 4-7. The simulation will include 200,000 “professional rescue units” and 50,000 pieces of equipment,’ reports Interfax.”
Russia is telling their people they are preparing for a war with the United States. Obama is telling us ISIS is just upset because Global Warming has taken all their food and jobs.
We are witnessing a pissing contest between a man who hunts shirtless and a man who wears mommy jeans. This will not end well.
In the third 2012 Presidential debate, Obama snidely quipped about a statement Gov. Mitt Romney made regarding America’s biggest geopolitical threat.
“Gov. Romney, I’m glad you recognize al-Qaeda is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what is the biggest geopolitical group facing America, you said Russia — not al-Qaeda. And the 1980’s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.”
Obama demeaned Romney but Romney has proven to be 100% correct. I, on the other hand, would have said Obama is our biggest threat. Mr. President, 2008 called and America wants the last 8 years back. Furthermore, 2009 called and wants its Peace Prize back.
Once again, Obama has put America on the wrong side of history. This time, we may pay dearly for it.
But that’s just my 2 cents.
