The Russian Defence Ministry has raised the issue of some 300 Daesh terrorists on pickup trucks infiltrating a US-controlled zone in Syria’s al-Tanf region.

The Russian Defence Ministry has urged “the US side to explain its selective blindness regarding militants” operating near US forces in Syria.

The ministry’s spokesman said the 300 Daesh militants had tried to block a strategically important road linking Damascus and Deir ez-Zor, which is used for delivering humanitarian aid to civilians and supplies for the Syrian Army.

  1. I would like Washington to explain why the hell there is any pretense that the U.S. is fighting ISIS when the U.S. has been and still is arming ISIS? Why other countries don’t band together and DO something about this mess that is the U.S., I don’t know. We are but 300 million useless, brain dead bobble heads and our military is laughable and so what’s holding other nations and countries back from sending this hole to hell?????!!!!! GEESH!!! Get on with it already, why don’t they???

From what I read, China probably has the ability to cripple essential US infrastructure via cyberwarefare. If I were them, I would start to make this widely known – and then begin issuing some ultimatums.

  2. The US is providing weapons to just about everyone – ally, terrorist, doesn’t matter. And now it has been confirmed that the US was involved last year’s coup attempt in Turkey, so, on balance, you’re probably better off being a terrorist these days.


  3. That pretty well describes it, Alan – spying on both sides while simultaneously providing them weapons. The US was also my favorite for sponsoring the coup in Turkey so I’m not terribly surprised.
