Another Ratchet Click: Putin Orders Military To "Immediately Destroy" Any Threat To Russian Forces


Russian President Vladimir Putin has ratcheted up the rhetoric in what appears to be one step closer to the potential for direct conflict with The West. While not detailing 'who' he was focued on, amid the obvious Turkey-Russia tensions, Putin told a session of the Defense Ministry's collegium that "I order to act extremely tough. Any targets that threaten Russian forces or our infrastructure on the ground should be immediately destroyed." During the meeting of the most senior defense officials, ITAR TASS reports that Putin also warned against "those who will again try to organize any provocations against our servicemen."
"We have already taken additional measures to ensure security of Russian servicemen and air base. It was strengthened by new aviation groups and missile defense systems. Strike aircraft will now carry out operations under cover of fighter jets"

Is it possible that the spoiled brats that claim to run the US will get their asses wailed, by grown ups around the world, for long term behavior considered nothing short of rude on a contimuous basis for decades?

The only interesting weaponry in this graphic are the strategic ones; the Fencers belong on sticks in museums and the few advanced tanks are useless in the hands of pikers.
Also of interest are the allowed flight paths. They go around Turkey and Ukraine, but I notice Greece is copacetic.
What am I thinking! I'm acting like we have international say in these matters.

Why do I get the feeling that the "targets that threaten Russian forces or our infrastructure on the ground" is going to be revealed as Israel? Ha ha ha, sorry, sorry, I'm such a dumb pessimist. I'm sure the SCOAMF has everything well in hand.

The Russians, of course are not "Intervening in Syria" they were invited to help the legitimately elected and overwhelmingly popular government of Assad- 70% approval, according to NATO

Who's keeping the war going?
The usual filth.

" Genie Energy's Strategic advisory board is composed of: Dick Cheney (former vice president of the United States), Rupert Murdoch (media mogul and chairman of News Corp), James Woolsey (former CIA director), Larry Summers (former head of the US Treasury), Jacob Rothschild and Michael Steinhardt "

Just been awarded exclusive rights to take oil from the Golan part of Syria that the Khazar land thieves are trying to steal.

Peace in Syria?

Not in Cheney's lifetime.

But hey, you can't expect pig-ignorant Americans (sorry for the redundancy) to have a clue.
It's more than they can Digest.

Were I given a choice, I'd far rather fuck with Barry the Kenyan than Vlad the Russian.

I read elsewhere that the Turks have the Bosporus Straits tied up, so the Black Sea fleet can't get through. No idea if this is true or not, but given who Putin is, I'll bet the caliph is sure glad he's got NATO bodyguards. Still, there has got to be some stuff going on Was it Hitchens who said if someone is going to control the oil, it might as well be us?
