State Department welcomes Russian activity in Syria

60
The United States welcomes the massive air strikes of the Russian Federation in the SAR, carried out in recent days, but so far they cannot determine whether this activity is a new strategy of Moscow in the fight against the "Islamic state", reports RIA News statement by State Department representative John Kirby.


State Department welcomes Russian activity in Syria


“We see a number of strikes of Russian aircraft in recent days in Rakka, which, we believe, is mainly under the control of the IG. And we welcome it. ”Said Kirby.

“It is too early to say whether this means a change in Russia's strategy in terms of its military operations in Syria. Actions speak for themselves better than words, ”he noted.

The representative of the State Department recalled that Washington is ready to cooperate with the Russian Federation in the fight against the Islamists, provided that "Moscow stops supporting President Bashar Assad and focuses on the fight against terrorism."

On the eve, Obama said that such cooperation is possible if the parties "resolve the differences on Syria at the diplomatic level."

          This part pleased me:
          in Raqqa, which we believe basically is under the control of the IG.

          There, not mushrooms, but mushrooms with thinner legs. That's it, glitches about the "moderate opposition" they still do not let go.

    Yesterday, one, today is completely different, and all with a serious face. The actors are super, I wouldn’t be able to. Seriously, it’s something to drive from the rostrum of a power that claims exclusiveness. And as vision returned, it is a miracle. To see the sense of the strikes of the Russian Aerospace Forces, a month and a half after the start of the bombing, this is insight.

    US welcomes massive Russian air strikes in SAR


    I'm shocked what
    Well, it’s necessary how the US State Department changed its position ...
    now the Russian Federation does not threaten democracy in Syria; now its participation in the democratization of frostbitten ISIS militants is welcomed .. However, the Americans are pouring their offspring AL-QAID and ISIS into the toilet.

    Figures from the Caliphate do not appease and diligently collect the number of their enemies. Now they decided to go to China, which is not fighting in Syria, the Caliphate is not bombing, and generally diligently keeps further from Syria. But it was not there.

    China promised to avenge IS for the execution of a Chinese hostage

    The terrorists of the Islamic State group, who executed the Norwegian and Chinese hostages, will be punished, he promised the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China.
    The militants of the Islamic State terrorist organization said they executed the captive Norwegian and Chinese hostages. It was reported that in a magazine published by the militants published photographs of the bodies of the killed hostages, RIA Novosti reports. “The Chinese government strongly condemns this atrocious act and will certainly punish the criminals who committed this act in strict accordance with the law,” the statement said. Hong Leia, published on the department website.
    Earlier media reported that IG fighters took hostage a Norwegian citizen Ole Johan Grimsgord Ofstad and Chinese citizen Fan Jinghui and demand a ransom for them. The militants posted photographs of men dressed in yellow robes in the media and indicated the names of the hostages. The Chinese Foreign Ministry first confirmed the name of the kidnapped. “A Chinese citizen Fan Jinghui was captured and killed by the Islamic State radical group. We express our deepest condolences to the relatives of the deceased, ”the statement said. According to Hong Lei, the Chinese government was trying hard to save its citizen after it became known about its capture.
    In September, Hong Lei said that according to preliminary data, the second hostage was described as being a resident of Beijing who had disappeared abroad.

    PS. As you can see, the fact of the presence or absence of Raqqi bombings by one country or another does not just abolish the fact that Baghdadi fans do not care who they kill - be it the Yezidi massacre in Syria, the bombing of a liner with Russian tourists in the Sinai, the shooting of French inhabitants in Paris, or suicide bombings in Lebanon or Iraq or cutting off Chinese heads. For them, these are all “infidels,” which means Baghdadi approves. Such charms - even the paint on the walls is curled up.
    It will certainly be interesting to look at the reaction of China, which, in the vast majority of conflicts that do not affect its vital interests, prefers to distance itself and take a rather rubbery position, and here it’s directly an unequivocal threat to the Caliphate that the implementation of which may require the involvement of the Chinese armed forces (it will be very funny, if China joins the Racca bombing).

    It must be understood that Russia is not an “outcast” of the “world community”, but enemy No. 1 for the West. No victories of the Russian Federation against the "common enemy" can cancel this position. Another thing is that politics is the art of the possible. The fact that Russia still exists means that the West has short hands.
