You're like a less intelligent version of Bootz. You post something stupid, someone challenges that post and you call them sensitive. At least get your own schtick.

In regards to this thread you've described yourself as a lemming. I get you're young and impressionable but you'd be better served to think for yourself as you get older.


and no, whats stupid is trading segachev. what i posted was correct

You mentioned college students are doing it as part of your reasoning, so along with your posting style I assumed you were that age. Perhaps I was giving you the benefit of the doubt.

If you're 50, you were born just after the Bay of Pigs so I'm curious how your Grandfather was involved since he must have been around the same age you are now when that occurred. By "involved" did you just mean that he was alive at the time, or something more?

I'd like to understand why Che Guevara appeals to you (other than him being "very smart" and you doing what the college kids do)? Are you also a Marxist? Or just a lemming? Your posts in this thread indicate it's one or the other, so I'll let you defend your position here...

A Corsair thread about Syrian airstrikes has become a thread about Che shirts. That was... well, actually kind of expected.

According to this story, Putin was made aware of the planned attack before it was carried out.

Russian oligarch indicted by Mueller reportedly told Putin before mercenaries in Syria attacked US forces

Yevgeniy Prigozhin, a Russian oligarch who special counsel Robert Mueller indicted in mid-February, reportedly spoke to Kremlin and Syiran officials before a group of Russian mercenaries he's thought to control attacked US forces.

In intercepted communications reported by the Washington Post, Prigozhin told a senior Syrian official he had "secured permission" from a Russian minister to carry out a "fast and strong" initiative in early February.

Then, on February 7, a column of some 500 pro-Syrian government forces which the Kremlin admits had at least some number of Russian nationals, advanced on a well-known headquarters of the Syrian Democratic Forces, which the US trains, equips, and stations within Syria.

How the battle went down

The purpose of the attack, which saw 122mm howitzers, tanks, and multiple launch rocket systems get close to the US-backed position in Syria, was to test the US's response, Reuters reported.

Operating Russian-made T-55 and T-72 tanks, the group fired 20 to 30 tank rounds within 500 feet of the SDF base, which held some US troops, Dana White, the Pentagon press secretary, said.

The US-led coalition responded with "AC-130 gunships, F-15s, F-22s, Army Apache helicopter gunships, and Marine Corps artillery," according to Lucas Tomlinson, a Fox News reporter. CNN also reported that Himars and MQ-9 drones were used in the attack.

The US reported more than 100 dead, but a later report from Bloomberg placed that figure as high as 300. The Pentagon said only one SDF fighter was injured in the battle.

Prigozhin's role in all of this

Prigozhin, a close associate of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was one of 13 Russians indicted by Mueller for his alleged role in conducting "information warfare" against the US during the 2016 election.

A US intelligence source told the Post that Prigozhin is "almost certainly" in control of the Russian mercenaries thought to have led the advance against US forces.

The clash between US and Russian-controlled forces has met with less fanfare than one might expect for a major battle involving nuclear-armed Cold War foes. "It's striking how the Russians themselves have been quick to distance themselves," an intelligence source told the Post.

"I think [the Russians] realize just how damaging it could be to any further cooperation," the official continued.

But Russia may have its own reasons to conceal the fighting, which could explain why Russia uses private military contractors and not their proper military in the first place. By using military contractors, as it has in Ukraine, Russia can hide the true body count of its Syrian campaign and continue to sell the conflict as a low-cost engagement to the Russian public.

Russia's military stood by as the US stomped the mercenaries

Immediately after the battle, Russia denied any involvement in the clash. Later it claimed five Russians had died.

On Tuesday, the Post reported that Russia's Foreign Ministry acknowledged that "several dozen" Russians were killed or wounded in the battle, and some had been "provided assistance to return to Russia . . . where they are undergoing medical treatment at a number of hospitals."

The Pentagon told Business Insider it warned the Russian military before launching a counter-attack on the pro-Syrian government forces. Russia's official military, which has considerable airpower nearby, did nothing during the fighting.

The evacuation of Russian fighters back to the homeland matches with a Reuters report on the battle that said Russian-led forces launched the attack to test the US's response.

Sorry, pal. Right now it's all about, Guns! Guns! Guns! No time for, Russia! Russia! Russia! But I'm sure they'll get back to that. Of course, it won't be about THIS Russia story. It'll be about the no-proof-of-collusion Russia story.

But, yeah. You'd think that something that could have led (and may still) to a Russia vs USA shooting war would garner way more attention that it's getting.

Indeed....

“One of the most complicated episodes in Syria's ever-twisting war took place the night of Feb. 7. In that incident, U.S. troops and their Syrian allies near the town of Deir al-Zour were attacked by hundreds of fighters loyal to the Syrian regime. The Americans responded with a devastating counterattack that the United States said left about 100 dead.

Soon, the situation was complicated further by reports that Russian mercenaries had taken part in the attack and were among the dead — making it the deadliest U.S.-Russia clash since the Cold War.



And barely a blip.

Very much, this. They came.. we saw. we kicked the ever loving **** out of them.

And these weren’t just your lowly foot soldiers storming the gates.. these included some very elite mercenary fighters, recruited from ex military veterans from some very recent wars... well funded, and allegedly backed by both Russian and Syrian governments.

Which, most interestingly, is also apparently being run by one of the main guys Mueller served indictments to last week... ‘the chef’.





And no, Michael Bay is not directing....





Yet.
