    Russians Attacked US Troops in Syria: Our Fearless President Refuses to Acknowledge!



    Don't Be Fooled: Russia Attacked U.S. Troops in Syria
    ‎16‎ ‎February‎ ‎2018‎ ‎

    If you've been listening just to the Kremlin and the Pentagon, you probably didn't know that Russia attacked American forces and their allies in Syria last week, suffering heavy casualties.

    Yes, all sides admit that there was an incident at a U.S. base in Deir Ezzor. And that elements of the Syrian regime and Shiite militias participated in the assault. The Pentagon and Kremlin both acknowledge that Russian "mercenaries" participated, too. But the line for now is that those contractors had gone rogue, and Moscow didn't know anything about it.

    When reporters asked U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis about the incident, he called the whole thing perplexing. "I have no idea why they would attack there, the forces were known to be there, obviously the Russians knew," he said ...

    Now, it should be said that Mattis, a retired four-star Marine Corps general, is a very smart man. His perplexity in this case is probably what Plato called a "noble lie," a falsehood spoken by a leader to achieve a greater social good .....

    But make no mistake: There is overwhelming evidence that those Russian contractors were working at the behest of the Kremlin. What's more, the Russians knew U.S. military personnel were in Deir Ezzor, which has been part of successive agreements to separate, or "deconflict," forces fighting in Syria.

    ... U.S. officials who monitor Syria tell me that there is no doubt that the Russian military knew all about the attack in Deir Ezzor. Evelyn Farkas, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia during the Obama administration, told me Thursday: "Any Russian mercenaries, whether they are in Ukraine or Syria, work for the Russian government."

    This is not an accident, particularly for the contractor in question, Wagner. One of its leaders, Dmitry Utkin, is a former lieutenant colonel in Russia's military intelligence agency, the GRU. He and the firm have been closely tied to the oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin, known as "Putin's chef" because he owns the Kremlin's food-service providers .....

    If this had happened on President Obama's watch, Donald Trump and the Republicans would be demanding an investigation and accusing the Democrats of being soft on the Russians.

    With Trump in the White House, Putin once again is given a "free ride" even when the lives of American troops come under attack and are placed at risk!

    Today 200 Brits are suffering from radioactive poisoning that was intended to assassinate a former Soviet spy and is only produced in Russia.

    The Prime Minister has given the Russians till Wednesday to provide an explanation or she will take action!

    Meanwhile President Trump remains silent while his Press Secretary has been instructed not to mention or attribute this criminal act using the "R" word!

    They just outdid themselves last week, committing a terrorist attack against British civilians in Salisbury. It sounds like Theresa May is blaming the Russian state directly. Where this goes next is uncleaar, but per the NATO charter, an attack on one is an attack on all.
    Global warming denialists are like gravity denialists piloting a helicopter, determined to prove a point. We may not have time to actually persuade them of their mistake.
