Washington so-called war
is a complete fabrication.
Russia's is the real thing.
Its effectiveness is why Obama
won't cooperate with Putin -
both leaders claim they share
the 'same goal.'
In over a year of daily Syria bombing, America's vaunted military
destroyed zero ISIS targets, nor those of other terrorist groups. On
Friday (16 October 2015), Russia's General Staff said its
warplanes destroyed 456 ISIS targets since September 30, striking
them with pinpoint accuracy.
Its Main Operations Directorate chief
Colonel-General Andrei Kartapolov said:
Most armed formations are
demoralized. There is growing discontent with field commanders,
and there is evidence of disobedience. Desertion is becoming

through refugee routes, fleeing for their lives.
Kartapolov said Russian,
"aircraft carry out strikes against
the militants infrastructure based on data provided through
several intelligence channels as well as intel supplied by the
information center in Baghdad. We only attack targets held by
internationally-recognized terrorist groups."
Washington's campaign targets Syrian
infrastructure sites, not ISIS or other terrorist groups, falsely
claiming otherwise, willfully deceiving the US public.
"It is against our principles to
advise our colleagues which targets to strike," said Kartapolov.
"However, on October 11, a power plant and an electrical
substation were destroyed by coalition warplanes in the vicinity
US and allied warplanes are,
"deliberately destroying the
civilian infrastructure in population centers making them unfit
for habitation. Because of that civilians are fleeing these
towns and contribute to the flow of refugees to Europe."
Washington refuses to share intelligence
data on ISIS and other terrorist groups' locations.
"So we went ahead and created a
comprehensive map of areas controlled by ISIL, based on our
intel and on data provided by the information center in
Baghdad," Kartapolov explained.
In Beijing at the 6th
Xiangshan Security Forum, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly
Antonov addressed what Putin repeatedly stresses.
Russia seeks cooperative relations with all nations. Washington
rejects it, especially Moscow's outreach to coordinate efforts on
each nation's Syrian operations.
"We are constantly in touch with the
Syrian army," Antonov explained.
"All of our strikes are surgical and
delivered with precision, exclusively against Islamic State
infrastructures. We have not hit any other military or civilian
facilities, let alone communities and mosques, contrary to what
some western media have been claiming."
"We cannot turn a blind eye to the fact that individual
countries (notably America, Britain, France and Israel) help
terrorist groups, counting on achieving their own selfish
national objectives" - while duplicitously claiming otherwise.
Russia's righteous campaign has
Washington flummoxed, on its back foot, its regional imperial
strategy taking a major body blow, its imported anti-Assad death
squads getting pummeled.
Syrian ground and air forces killed hundreds of ISIS and other
terrorists since their major offensive began days earlier - a
sustained effort to regain lost territory, liberating one village
after another, reversing past setbacks, US proxies taking heavy
No wonder Washington rejects cooperating with Russia. Putin's
righteous mission means its Middle East agenda is no longer
unchallenged - maybe prologue for contesting it on a broader scale.
America's dark side reflects pure
evil, humanity's greatest ever threat, its survival literally up for
