Is US Army Defending ISIS as Russia Claims?

Russia said USA did it.  USA said Russia did it!  Now a Syrian army general said that attack on his soldiers is conclusive proof that USA is actually supporting ISIS fighters!!

BEIRUT/MOSCOW - US-led coalition air strikes killed dozens of Syrian soldiers on Saturday, Russia and a monitoring group said, putting a US-Russian brokered ceasefire in jeopardy and prompting an emergency UN Security Council meeting.

The United States military said the coalition stopped the attacks against what it had believed to be Islamic State positions in northeast Syria after Russia informed it that Syrian military personnel and vehicles may have been hit.

A US military official said he was "pretty sure" targets mistakenly hit in the strikes were Syrian forces.

Russia called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council after the incident, and diplomats said the 15-member body was due to meet behind closed doors at 7:30 p.m. ET (2330 GMT).

Moscow cited the strikes, which allowed Islamic State fighters to briefly overrun a Syrian army position near Deir al-Zor airport, as evidence that the United States was helping the jihadist militants.

"We are reaching a really terrifying conclusion for the whole world: That the White House is defending Islamic State. Now there can be no doubts about that," the RIA Novosti news agency quoted Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying.

She said the strikes threatened to undermine the ceasefire in Syria brokered by Russia, which has been aiding Syria's President Bashar al-Assad in the civil war, and the United States, which has backed some rebel groups.

The Russian Defence Ministry said US jets had killed more than 60 Syrian soldiers in four air strikes by two F-16s and two A-10s coming from the direction of Iraq.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based monitoring group with contacts across Syria, cited a military source at Deir al-Zor airport as saying at least 80 Syrian soldiers had been killed.

The ceasefire, which took effect on Monday, is the most significant peacemaking effort in Syria for months, but has been undermined by repeated accusations of violations on both sides and by a failure to bring humanitarian aid to besieged areas.


Of course we have no idea who killed all the Syrian soldiers.  Did errant bombs dropped by USA kill them all?  Did Russia kill them all to try to frame USA?  Did Obama order it directly to send a message to Assad that he better mind his manners and quit killing women and children with chemical weapons?

Let's recall that Obama originally said that "Assad has to go!"....that was before ISIS started burning people alive and boiling them in tar and raping every man, woman and goat in Iraq and maybe Obama isn't so sure Assad has to go?

Russia wants Assad to stay.  They always have wanted him to stay!  They have some massive military agreements with Assad and I'm guessing they certainly DON'T want to kill 60 of his soldiers.

Talk about the FOG OF WAR!!

"Well Dennis, I just bought a bumper sticker that says, 'Let's give peace a chance!' and I have already stuck it on my Subaru and I believe what the world needs now is love, tolerance and no more war!"

Hey!  That's a great idea!  There's just one problem....Jesus said wars would continue up until the time He returns.  It won't be until then that men will melt their weapons of war into farm implements and they won't train for war anymore.

Matthew 24
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.
