US Airstrike: Russian UN Ambassador Says Evidence Suggests Intentional Provocation

From RT:

The US’ sudden attempt to “help” the Syrian army fighting ISIS in the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor, which resulted in a strike that killed and injured dozens of soldiers, does not look like an honest mistake, Russia’s UN envoy told journalists at the UNSC meeting.

“It is highly suspicious that the United States chose to conduct this particular air strike at this time,” Russia’s ambassador Vitaly Churkin said.

Churkin questioned why the US suddenly chose to “help” the Syrian army defend Deir ez-Zor after all these years, recalling how American forces just observed terrorists’ movements and did “nothing when ISIS advanced on Palmyra.”

“It was quite significant and not accidental that it happened just two days before the Russian-American arrangements were supposed to come into full force,” Churkin added.

Churkin made the comments to the media this evening at the UN. You can go here to see a video of his entire remarks (18 minutes long). I suggest people go and watch the entire video. It will give you a keen sense of the gravity of the situation. I have never heard a high-ranking Russian official speak this bluntly before. The words “our American partners” do not come out of his mouth once.

US Ambassador to UN: Emergency Meeting a ‘Stunt,’ Blasts Russia and Assad ‘Game’

The United States Ambassador to the United Nations took a truculent tone during the emergency meeting on Saturday accusing Russia of bombing civilians and blaming the Assad regime for the rise of ISIS calling the meeting “grandstanding,” a “stunt,” and a “game” after 80 Syrian Army forces were killed in a US-Led airstrike.

During the emergency UN Security Council meeting on Saturday called by Russia only hours after a US-led airstrike degraded Syrian Army positions leading to the death of some 80 soldiers and “paving the way” for a major Daesh offensive, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations refused to offer remorse but instead laid the blame for the crisis in Syria directly at the feet of the Russian Aerospace Forces who she says is “bombing civilians” and the Assad regime who she claims gave rise to Daesh.

Interestingly, as the world hovers on a dangerous precipice, the two major presidential candidates seem to be in La-La Land.

Trump’s latest tweet as of Sept. 17, 9:15 p.m.:

Clinton’s latest tweet as of roughly the same time:

If the number of “likes” and “retweets” are any indication, it would appear that Trump is solidly out in front of Hillary. Could this have anything to do with why elements within the US government are now, at this present time, trying, at least to appearances, to provoke a confrontation with Russia?

  1. The US government from the local traffic cop to Obama are stark raving mad. Every time anything happens they blame the victim.
    The propaganda has become so childish and transparent that only an American college student could possibly believe it.
    The Syrian Army has been at the Air Base that was attacked for the last 40 years. The defence of the base has been ongoing since the first attacks 4 years ago. The idea that the US forces ‘thought’ that they were ISIS is so crassly ridiculous that only a total mindless imbecile would give it one seconds consideration.
    The pilots will claim that ‘I feared for my life’, ‘He was reaching for my gun’ and that is why they bombed and strafed the airbase.
    “I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you”

    YOU are responsible, they are YOUR government, you cannot hide behind ‘I did not know’ or ‘what could I do?’. You will be held responsible and the day approaches when the whole world will turn on you, just as they did on Germany and Russia and China and Cambodia.
    Claiming you were a ‘Good’ American will not do you any more good than it did the Germans in 1946, remember they are still bringing charges against Germans 70 years later.
    I marched and protested the war on Iraq and when that could not be stopped, at a high cost, I left the UK in protest. Never will they claim that they did it in my name.
    When will you stand up.

  2. Ambassador Churkin is not wrong,why do the US want to air strike Isis now?,they had ample opportunity when the head choppers were traveling across Syrian open desert,as Churkin reports,the truth is regime change is still the goal,the US military are being used ,only just recently US special forces were threatened with being killed by soo called moderate allies,Washington cares not for justice or even the lives of US service men and women,who are expected to fight alongside wha is really Al qeada,from what I can see is that the US military seek a honest fight and they find it with the Kurdish YPG,which upsets another frenemy ally that is erdogan’s Turkey.If this madness and confusion does not stop,that is the US military being asked to support Al qeada ,it would not surprise me if the US military threatens to mutiny like they did 4yrs ago,Russia sees the truth is that these moderate Syrian forces are really Al qeada,who hate Americans and Russians equally ,as they are both seen as crusader infidels ,they probably hate Americans more than Basha Al Assad,what kind of allies are these?,Assad does not chop Americans heads off ,these moderates/salafists would if they had a chance.ziocons are blood thirsty maniacs and want to obliterate all civil order in the mid east.

    • It is a mess, isn’t it? Yes, a mutiny by the US military, I guess, is a possibility, although I don’t see any sign of that happening, at least anytime soon. On the other hand, the collapse of the Berlin wall took a lot of people by surprise. Time will tell.

  3. Another event that’s suspicious is that pipe bomb that went off in New Jersey. Was that timed to distract attention away from the US supporting its ISIS terrorists in Syria?

  4. I am from Vancouver,Canada and I wanted to say that the U.S.Gov’t has been part of the problem in Syria for a long time.The U.S. Gov’t is not fighting against Terrorism in Syria it is supporting Terrorism there.This has been well known for a long time.The USA is a problem in Palestine also because it supports Israeli Apartheid.
    The U.S. Gov’t has been condemned for these actions many times. it is time for the UN to condemn the U.S. Gov’t for been part of the problem in Syria and Palestine.

    • The US and Israel are like two deformed twins joined at the hip. I think more and more people are recognizing this, and the recently-approved $38 billion aid package–at a time with the US is $19 trillion in debt–pretty much underscores how perverse the situation has become.

  5. Former US marine( once a marine always a marine),”Ken O’Keefe “,called the neocon warmongers traitors to the US state on RT last year,he has a valid point considering that they arm and train enemies of America,like Al qeada and its affiliates…
