US Air Force Aids ISIS

Not content with arming ISIS, the U.S. military last week openly attacked the Syrian army in an airstrike, allowing ISIS forces to seize an important Syrian army position near the Deir al-Zor airport, in the east of that country.

The U.S. military claims the air strike was a “mistake”—something that is highly unlikely, given modern satellite, drone, and on-board radar surveillance technologies.

The attack, which killed between 60 and 90 Syrian soldiers, caused the Russian government to demand an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council to discuss the American attack.

The Russians also accused the United States of deliberately jeopardizing a newly-negotiated Syrian peace deal.

When asked by Reuters if the incident spelled the end of the Syria deal between Moscow and Washington, Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said: “This is a very big question mark.”

“I would be very interested to see how Washington is going to react. If what Ambassador Power has done today is any indication of their possible reaction then we are in serious trouble,” Churkin told reporters, referring to U.S. ambassador Samantha Power’s claim that the attack was “not intentional.”

The Reuters report added that Moscow had cited the strikes, which allowed Islamic State fighters to overrun the 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.

Zakharova pointed out 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.

The Russian Defence Ministry said U.S. 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 90 Syrian soldiers had been killed.

Australia also participated in the strikes and the Australian Department of Defence has offered its condolences to the families of Syrian soldiers killed or wounded in the incident.

In June this year, it was revealed that the U.S. government’s military supplies and “aid” to “moderate Syrian rebels” was going straight to ISIS.

The evidence emerged following the capture of Falluja in Iraq from ISIS, when weaponry delivered by the CIA to “moderate rebels” was found in ISIS stores in the city.

  1. Is anyone caught by surprise? The main mistake on the part of US is that they for once weren’t very successful with blaming the Russians.

  2. Of course it wasn’t a mistake. Our Muslim-in-Chief has backed ISIS all along. The only thing preventing him from tearing up the constitution and installing Sharia law is the fact there millions of us patriots with an estimated 300 million firearms that are waiting patiently……

  3. I have not read any of this in MSN anywhere

    Obama DOES need to be held to account for this with a full enquiry into what he has been doing whilst in office

    1. Yes, he is. His mother was (or at least believed she was) a Jew. His alleged father is some sort of Muslim – the race that enslaved and castrated blacks throughout history.

  4. Importing jihadist Muslims (a redundancy there) into the US as fast as he can; backing the Muslim Brotherhood in its overthrow of the Mubarak government; bombing Qaddaffi’s forces to facilitate Islamist takeover in Libya – the assistance given to Islamists in Syria is par for the course.

  5. If they can do it to Syria, they can do it to any European country, too. Syria, once a prosperous country, got flooded with mercenaries and extremist muslims, given arms by the usual axis of evil. Isn’t that what they’re doing to Europe too, now?

    I would have no problem harbouring REAL Syrian refugees temporarily, because as much as I hate to admit it, “the West” is at fault here. But of course even the misnomer “syrian refugee” has been used to smuggle in some of the most dangerous criminals on Earth.

    We are all being victims of a global regime of destruction.
