Friends, I think we should support the Russians, not the Muslim Turks who slaughtered over 1 million Christian Armenians. It seems like we are never on the correct side in wars anymore.
Video has emerged showing Syrian rebels blowing up a Russian helicopter after it landed during attempts to rescue two Russian pilots whose jet was shot down by Turkey Tuesday. The Russian military later confirmed that one of its soldiers was killed when one of several Mi-8 helicopters taking part in the search for the downed Su-24 jet was "damaged by gunfire." "A search and rescue operation to evacuate the Russian pilots from the crash site was launched with the help of two Mi-8 helicopters," military spokesman General Sergei Rudskoi said in televised comments. "During the operation, one of the helicopters was damaged by gunfire and had to land. A soldier was killed." The video shows rebels watching from a distance as two choppers approach, and then cuts to show a fighter rapidly assembling what appears to be a US-made TOW missile launcher. In the next video frame, rebels score a direct hit on the helicopter. A major international crisis appears to be brewing over the downing of the Russian jet, with Russian President Vladimir Putin warning of "serious consequences." In the past few hours senior US officials - including Obama - have backed Turkish claims that the aircraft was warned 10 times without responding before Turkish forces opened fire. Russia insists the plane was in Syrian territory, while Turkey claims it was inside its airspace.
Above, Hezbollah soldiers.........Reports in Syria surfaced on Tuesday evening indicating that the Israeli Air Force (IAF) conducted strikes on a base belonging to the Iran terror proxy Hezbollah. The base that was targeted was located in the mountainous Qalamoun border region between Lebanon and Syria. Some Syrian reports claim as many as 13 pro-regime fighters were killed in four strikes, including many Hezbollah terrorists. Qalamoun has long been a key point for transferring weapons, both for rebels fighting Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad and Hezbollah fighting to prop up Assad. Arab media has frequently reported on Israeli airstrikes taking out advanced weapons transfers headed through the region to Hezbollah in Lebanon, which would pose a direct threat on Israel's north.
