Russia to Samantha Power: We ain’t got time for political whores—go away (Jonas Alexis, VT, 9-18-16)
“The violation was indeed an act of war, but neither Russia nor the Syrian government responded through retaliation but through diplomatic solutions. Russian officials asked for a UN Security Council meeting in order to solve the issue in a peaceful manner. That indeed is a rational position.
“But how did New World Order agents respond? Well, [United States UN ambassador] Samantha Power has the answer. Russia’s move, says Power, is a “magician’s trick” and “a stunt.” More importantly, continues Power, the Syrian government is exclusively responsible for the death of the servicemen and civilians… [she said] the Russians were trying to score ‘cheap points’ by making so much of the US killing scores of Syrian soldiers who were defending the Deir Ezzor airport from ISIS…
“People like Power obviously prove that the Ayatollah Khomeini was right on target when he launched the term “the Great Satan” to describe the Zionist State of America.”
“In response to Power’s accusations, Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook: “Dear Samantha Power, in order to know the meaning of the word “embarrassed,” I highly encourage you to travel to Syria and talk to the people there for yourself… I’m referring to the actual people that continue to live there in spite of the bloody experiment that has been waged on their homeland for over six years, with active participation by Washington.”
““Let’s go there together,” she said, promising she would shoulder the expenses of Power’s Syria trip. “Do say yes. Don’t be frightened. Nobody will lay a finger on you in my presence. Unless, of course, your guys don’t again ‘mistakenly’ strike the wrong target.
“[Vitaly Churkin] “The beginning of work of the Joint Implementation Group was supposed to be September 19. So if the US wanted to conduct an effective strike on Al-Nusra or ISIS, in Deir ez-Zor or anywhere else, they could wait two more days and coordinate with our military and be sure that they are striking the right people. Instead they chose to conduct this reckless operation,”…”
Press TV: Interview with Gordon Duff… the recent attacks by the US-led coalition on Syrian troops in Dayr al-Zawr (Gordon Duff VT 9-20-16; interview and transcript)
“I believe it’s all been theater. But I think it began with the setup by forces within the US. This is one of the things that hasn’t even been looked at. But the real loser here is Russia and I believe this is initially a US attempt to interfere in the parliamentary elections in Russia.
“There are no accidental bombings by the US. The lines at Dayr al-Zawr, where the bombing occurred and where 83 Syrian army were killed, have been within 100 meters since 2015. They’ve been very standardized. The US and Britain bombed clearly long-established lines, using guided munitions, satellite surveillance and drone surveillance. They had a full surveillance package on this.
“This was very much a planned attack. To the US, ISIS [Daesh] is a small player. The US is here to destabilize Russia. Syria is the tool the US is using. This is how I see it.
“While the bombing was still going on, I received calls from two Syrian ministers. [They] called me and asked me what was going on and if the United States had lost their minds?… The US has shown a willingness to sacrifice any credibility of any kind.”
