      This is nothing new to Americans. Almost all "strategists" fly through Iran and Iraq. Plus that "rolled the track" winked "calibers". I think that ours asked about it, otherwise if it happened that everything would immediately be blamed on the Russian Armed Forces.

        Yes, only a sick person can go to a warring country. They ride only in service and work and for a lot of money. Well, of course they risk it. The igil is all the same to whom to cut .. they can also tweet the sponsor by accident ...

    In the Western world, new forms of mental disorder besides Russophobia will soon appear ....
    this is calibrophobia
    this is klabofobiya
    it's subclophobia

    .... phobias in new forms will appear indefinitely.

    The combination of these phobias causes real hysteria in the political elite of the WEST
    What expanse for the development of psychiatry .... more than enough clients.

    Amer what? They will write as always that the missiles fell in the desert and killed a herd of donkeys, or sheds, or some other garbage. Western people will believe. But the Russians are pleased with such news as a sip of wine.

    How gently the news is presented: In connection with missile launches, air traffic in the north of Iraq is temporarily closed for security reasons.
    And I can imagine how the Western press will explode now: these evil Russians threaten the safety of flights for 2 whole days. Putin is the aggressor. Assad must leave.

    "Baghdad closed the skies in the north of the country in connection with the launches of Russian missiles" ...

    That surprised one fact yesterday ...

    At a time when Iraq is creating all the opportunities for the "work" of our military aircraft and cruise missiles, yesterday the President of Turkmenistan expressed his concern to Putin (and he also signed about the concern not only of Turkmenistan, but also of Kazakhstan !!!) about the safety of the airspace over By the Caspian Sea, precisely because of the fact that launches actually take place from its water area ...

    Turkmenistan is also concerned about the integrity of the IG ??? And with what poodles, he also expressed this on behalf of Kazakhstan ???

    With the bombing of oil columns and storage facilities, concerns are increasing. They offended the Syrian Turkmen, then the poor Turkmen Turkmen over the Caspian, or Iraq in the sky. And, which is typical, all of a sudden suddenly all refugees rushed to Europe, fleeing Assad's atrocities. They used to get along somehow, but then they rushed off. What will happen if you hit the oil fields captured by the terrorists? Not hard to guess. Asal will become even more furious and it will be necessary to stop these atrocities. Why unite all the moderates with the bloodshot angry eyes of the opposition. And everything will be OK. Like in Libya. No atrocities and everyone is happy.

    Everything is correct. It is not necessary that our Western "partners" realize an irresistible desire to kill a hundred other passengers of an aircraft of any country in this zone, dumping them on Russia. According to the Ukrainian scenario.

    The sky over Iraq for civil aviation was supposed to be closed when the Americans rushed there. What tourists over the country where the war is going on and the aviation of the Western coalition dives back and forth.
