The attacks on the Syrian army, Trump called the "legal measures"

65
US President Donald Trump sent a letter to the congressmen yesterday, describing ongoing operations involving US troops and calling strikes on the Syrian army legal, reports RIA News.




Since the last periodic report, the US armed forces participating in the campaign to combat ISIS (banned in the Russian Federation) in Syria have inflicted a limited number of attacks on the Syrian government and pro-government forces. These strikes were legal measures to counter clear threats to US forces and their partners involved in this campaign.
says the letter.

Recall 8 June, the Western coalition struck at the Syrian pro-government forces in the area At-Tanf. As a result, the tank and artillery installations were destroyed, which entered the so-called “conflict prevention zone and posed a threat” to the Allied forces.

18 June aviation the coalition was shot down by a Syrian Su-22 fighter in the province of Raqqa after it allegedly dropped bombs near the positions of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). In Damascus, they said that the plane was carrying out a mission against the IG.

And on June 20, a coalition shot down an Iranian-made UAV model Shahed-129, which belonged to the Syrian Air Force, near the At-Tanf region.

After that, the Russian Defense Ministry said that any aircraft and UAVs appearing in the areas where the combat missions of the Aerospace Forces in Syria would be taken to be accompanied by air defense weapons as air targets. New similar incidents in Syria have not been reported since.

          It doesn’t matter who is in the White House, Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton ... All of them are enemies of the Russian man there. And to the rest of the world they are not friends at all. The ghoul's lair is there. And it makes no difference who is the boss and who is nearby.
          This is a hellish entity with which we are destined to live on earth. It is necessary to remember who they are and to strangle them at any creep on our interests.

            It seems to me that Trump is better. He bends his line. And it’s better for us when it’s clear that there is an enemy, not a Western partner. Our situation resembles the Stalinist course towards building socialism (now-capitalism) in a single country, in a hostile environment and moving away from globalization-integration according to the Ukrainian type. That same rally in front of that same notorious, notorious external threat. And thank God (USSR) that we have a Strategic Missile Forces.

                    Greetings, gentlemen! hi hi I have a feeling that Trump is trying to “catch up” with Putin, or in any case “save face”, for whatever reason Russia completes the operation in the UAR, the bases are preserved, the authority in the region is solid, the Arab countries realized that mattresses at any second they will throw an ally, etc.
                    And honestly, I thought: Trump is a businessman, a business man (it’s not easy to earn billions), he will be a serious and grasping politician. But it turned out, some kind of clown with a moronic smile, what does the behavior like on Mussolini look like ... The main thing is the pose, and what I say is up to the bulb ... request

                Our family especially did not officially own anything, I suppose that there were simply accounts abroad that few people know about or stocks, for example, of Gazprom in offshore companies. Poroshenko has officially declared property, which his family can easily not expropriate. Even like in the Crimea. And the guarantors are Ukrainian, everything is just like a selection, the eyes will not be pecked out to each other.

    US forces participating in the anti-IS campaign (a group banned in the Russian Federation) in Syria delivered a limited number of attacks on the Syrian government and pro-government forces. These attacks were legitimate measures to counter obvious threats to US forces and their partners involved in this campaign.

    What laws is this head talking about?
    An armed presence on the territory of a sovereign state and striking at the armed forces of the latter, without a UN mandate and the permission of a legitimately elected government, has always been called armed aggression, without any other interpretations.
    If armed aggression is US law, then there is nothing surprising in Trump’s statement.
    It remains only to offer the legally elected President of the United States to provide all of humanity with copies of documents, laws, amendments to the US Constitution, documenting the use of armed aggression as the LEGAL method of interstate communication.

              Do not be surprised. The oligarch of the Russian Federation forbade our pilots to evaluate the flyers of their mattress and Zionist (fascist) partners as enemy. Therefore, the mattress F-22 was identified as neutral, and it flew up, of course, immediately began to do disgusting things. I had to scam him, because our pilots are not corrupt individuals of the Russian oligarchy and they have the honor.

    Yes, but why only "in the areas of the military mission of the aerospace forces in Syria"? Those. where do we fly, sha all! Bomb the rest of the territory, we’ll allow it. Ugly, but it turns out. If you have already volunteered to the Syrians as allies, be so kind as to expel ALL non-legitimate armed formations from its territory, including the Natavian geeks.
