Russia Accuses US of Deliberately “Bombing Desert”

The head of the Russian parliament’s international affairs committee, Alexei Pushkov, has accused the United States military of deliberately bombing the desert instead of hitting terrorist targets in Syria for the past year.


Writing on his Twitter account, Pushkov said that US Senator John “McCain accused us of striking out at US-trained insurgents… However, since they have either run away or joined al-Qaeda, hitting them is a mission impossible.”

In a separate interview with France’s Europe 1 Radio service, Pushkov said that the Russian aerial campaign in Syria would take three to four months.

“The US-led coalition spent a whole year pretending they were striking ISIL targets but where are the results of these strikes?” Pushkov asked.

The Americans have been “pretending” all along, he continued. “It’s the intensity that is important. The US coalition pretended to bomb Daech for a year, but there are no results. If you do it in a much more efficient way, the results will be seen.” He added that in his view, 80 percent of all the US strikes have been pointless.

Turning to Russian intervention in Syria, he ruled out ground forces becoming involved in the war, and said that Russia was intervening to “maintain Syria as an independent state” but also to provide protection for Russia.

“The Islamic state is an expansionist organization. They indicated that they had very important goals in Central Asia, our military allies,” he said, referring to the possibility of militant Islam spreading throughout the former Soviet states to the south of Russia, and even into the Russian state.

According to a report in Russia’s Sputnik News (the former Pravda news service), the American government had earlier accused the Russian air force of “targeting areas in Syria where ISIL militants were nowhere in sight.”

McCain, who is chairman of the Senate’s Armed Services Committee, said that he could “absolutely confirm” that Russian air strikes had hit mythical “Free Syrian Army” recruits who had been armed and trained by the US.

  1. The Yanks are a country that just CANNOT be trusted on a battlefield. They conquer, but are totally unable to fight

  2. I suppose, apart from the obvious fact that America has been backing the Islamic terrorists all along, it also serves the purpose of keeping the American ‘arms’ industry in business…

  3. America is no friend of the west. Look who is in charge and upsetting Americans in his own country. . . good riddance to him next year but the damage has been done. I’m glad Russia is smashing hell out of ISIS. Saddam kept good control of his own. Good luck to a real army. Russia Rules.

    1. Yes, good riddance!!! He’s about to get us nuked and I’m sure he’d like nothing more since he hates Americans! I hope the rest of the world understands that we have been taken over by Israel and are involved in an internal war at the moment that looks like it’s about to get nasty if elections get stolen and we are completely disenfranchised…again! This time we know for sure who is behind this sh*t so there will be no excuse for us sitting on our asses and doing nothing. WE need Trump and Putin working together to fix this mess. Israel and Jews that support it need to go get behind their f’ing wall and stay there. They need to quit messing with the world and doing their age old war mongering. We need to push those SOB’s out of our finances and disallow them in our gov.and schools! They are destroying our children’s minds and turning them into a bunch of simpering communists. It will take another whole generation to undo the damage they have done to the Western world.
      If we are threatened, unlike Russia, we have nowhere to hide. The people who will die will be the middle class and the ones below. At least Russia supplies their people with bomb shelters. They have all been closed to the citizens of this country, while our “leaders” go around the world poking the bears with sharp sticks. God help us! There has to be some fairness left somewhere in the world for the hard working underclasses who love their country and are being constantly used as canon fodder for the “elites”! We are the ones who civilized this planet, and we’ll have to be the ones that saves it from this insidious evil! Zionist scum!
      I’m so pissed off I can’t sleep at night with what this is doing to all our western countries. Genocide on a scale of WW1 and 2. They are setting all western nations up for starvation. Get your gardens going and your drying and canning food on as big a level as you can pull off! We are small farmer where I live. Chickens are the best thing you can have for food animals with limited space. I promise. They will even eat sh*t if there is nothing else.
      On that disgusting note I will end this rant.
      I am worried sick about my country and people.

  4. The more I look at the Syrian refugees the more I see that Christians as well as Muslims are fleeing this civil war. It appears that Assad’s enemies are Saudi Arabian backed Sunnis who are ISIS as well as the so called Syrian Free Army who it would appear to be Al Qaida linked. These two groups want rid of Shiite and Christians in Syria. The goal appears to be to turn Iraq and Syria into strict Wahhabi Muslim states.

    History shows us that Syria’s only enemy before Saudi Arabia got involved was Israel. So I must ask , why does UK,USA, France and Germany allow themselves to be Israeli puppets. As the Russians have said Syrians will decide whether they wish to stick with Assad. I’m inclined to agree given that the same scenario was used by Israeli puppets to destabilize Libya, Tunisia and Iraq. It’s not about peoples safety in these countries , it’s about selling weapons. If the west work to maintain this narrative then the future will be one large Islamic state to replace Syria and Iraq. A truly diabolical plot. Americans need to question why Israel receives so much money from their government. Why are Americans being led rather than leading. They need to know the truth !
