Russia: U.S. controlling an "international terrorist alliance"


**MOSCOW – Russian officials accused the U.S. on Thursday of siding with “terrorists” in Syria, in a sign of escalating tensions between Moscow and Washington amid the battle for the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.

U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby’s warning that the collapse of U.S.-Russian cooperation in Syria could lead to a rise in extremism and potential attacks against Russia drew Moscow’s anger.

The Russian Foreign and Defense Ministries both cast it as U.S. encouragement of terror attacks on Russia.**

Well, saying we are in “control” of it is giving this government too much credit. :rolleyes:


Yeah, we don’t necessarily always control every last detail on the ground, rather, we control and direct them in an over-arching meta sense. We’ve invented them, set them in motion and pointed them in certain directions. And we attempt to be invisible about it, so we do it in clever, sneaky ways in concert with our allies in the region. Saudi Arabia funds and supports ISIS, while Israeli think tanks are on record as calling ISIS strategically useful and aligned with them, and are in the habit of providing medical aid to wounded terrorists so they can get back in the action. Meanwhile, the United States Department of Defense has come right out and said that we’re no longer fighting al-Qaeda or the al-Nusra Front, and is in fact furious with Russia for attacking terrorists who are U.S. proxies fighting for us.


Lord help us, have you ever heard of such a mess??? Come, Lord Jesus, come! Only YOU can straighten our crooked paths…


Obama, Clinton, and Kerry…


Pentagon paid PR firm $540mn to make fake terrorist videos

And here’s this, just in case anyone feels like sending them a thank you letter.


540 million here, 540 million there, pretty soon you are talking real money! The specter of inflation has greatly increased the cost of producing propaganda. Still, it is not completely without merit, as steering public sentiment against terrorism is not a bad thing - and nothing was blown up. Darn it.


And let’s have 4 more years of it. :rolleyes:


Hope not!!
