    As I understand it, I heard that the leadership of Syria sends a legal landing to the UN.
    Those. an attempt to solve the problem of the presence of unwanted guardians / assistants ... count the impudent invaders using international legal mechanisms.
    Someone can believe. that brazen Anglo-Saxon muzzles can be wiped out from Syria in this way ???
    However, it is necessary to try it for everyone.

      Along the way, to shoot down these guardians, with all legal justifications, is also a good way to calm this greyhound

          hi
          Well, with this step, the United States aggravated the situation not only in Syria, whose government decided to act through the UN, but also in relations with its NATO ally, Turkey, which on the eve recalled its ambassadors from the United States and Israel (Kurds are Turkey’s opponents to Syria).

            Hi lion soldier
            The fact that striped with the current administration is already sales with an elephant in a china shop to be an understatement of their "merits" is understandable.
            That's just the sultan of Erdogan should be perceived only as a temporary fellow traveler, from whom the muck can be obtained at any time. This is not unusual at all in international politics, just forget about nizya, i.e. to look after and keep ready such a good club .... which is quite possible, we can do it already.

              Well, in this regard, our Defense Ministry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and special services have gained sufficient practical experience and will not be missed. We at VO can only speculate and exchange views on a particular issue. The other day, the notorious “Donald Cook” again fell into history with Russian flyers, but already in the Mediterranean Sea.

          For Americans, it’s not too hard to hit tractors and excavators, but I will not say anything about weddings and funerals.

            Hi Gennady.
            It is not relevant for the United States to consider civilian casualties; all of them fall into the Pentagon summaries as members of ISIS factions. And here is our statistics:

              Greetings Leo! hi Ours with the Syrians and Iranians are really fighting terrorists, and the Americans only scream to the whole world that they defeated the IS. Some of them work, others of the fact that they are actively prevented from doing this, but they also defiantly wiping sweat from their foreheads say: "We plowed."

    The statement "The United States abandons the Kurds again to fight," indicated in the title, does not correspond to the content of the article.
    More precisely, "Kurds continue to milk the United States"

    While the USA and TURKEY in Syria there will be no peace! The invaders didn’t leave when they kicked them out. At the expense of electronic warfare, there is still no information about the causes of the accident of our SU and spacecraft. And their destroyer at that time was nearby. Or is the electronic warfare system only in Russia?
