Russia´s retaliation for downed
jet has just begun

Al-Monitor [Washington, D.C.], by Maxim A. Suchkov

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 2/6/2018 11:16:57 AM

MOSCOW — Russia responded quickly and fiercely to the Feb. 3 downing of an Su-25 jet over Syria´s Idlib province and the subsequent shooting death of its pilot. Shortly after the incident, the Russian Defense Ministry ordered precision missile strikes on the area and claimed to have killed at least 30 militants. Russia is particularly concerned because the plane was apparently shot down by a portable anti-aircraft missile system, which would have been provided by some outside source. There were some discrepancies over who controlled the area where the plane was downed and who did the shooting. The pilot, Russian air force

Comments:
Payback. The Russkis always take care of business, which is why only the stupid mess with them.

Dear Russkies, I suggest you look no further than Obama/Hillary for the supplier. It was likely a MANPAD that went from Libya, thru Turkey and into Syria.

FTA: "The Conflict Intelligence Team, an independent investigative group that first obtained photos and documents about the incident, said Filippov was believed to be one of the best pilots in the Russian air force."

Downing one of Russia´s best, and then shooting at him while coming down in a parachute is suppose to be against International law, or so I remember. I have a deep respect for all jet pilots when flying into battlefields, as long as they aren´t shooting at US or our allies. I suspect the MANPAD used doesn´t matter in reality because that whole place in Syria is muddled by various factions and their weapons supplied or they capture.

The various militants probably don´t care who they shoot down, as long as they kill somebody. Hopefully the Ruskies will provide good payback.

The SU-25 is the Russian A-10 Warthog equivalent. It is primarily a ground attack aircraft. The article admits the "pilot may have been flying low.." So we can pretty much ascertain by that the guy was on a ground attack mission.

Although the article writer wants to suggest a very sophisticated type of anti-AC system was responsible, ground attack missions are incredibly dangerous against any target protected by just about any of the older shoulder launched anti-aircraft defense systems...even the old ´Stingers´ the US supplied the Afghans 20 years ago. Also, this target was right up against the Turkish border and the intended enemy specifically was pro-Turkish militants known to be hitting the Kurds. The article also does not mention that just a day prior to the downing of the Russian AC, the Russians had intercepted a 20 truck convoy bringing in tanks and other heavy supplies right across the Turkish border. Russian air attacks mauled the convoy badly. So, the Russians are highly POed as they should be, against the terrorist militants (not soldiers, mind you!) who murdered the pilot, shooting at him while he was still in his parachute, then moving on him and killing him while he tried to defend himself, as he was rightly wont to do having been targeted in the descent. Yet, the writer tries to smear the US and Israel for supplying the supposed "High tech" weapons that they state would have been required to bring this "sophisticated" AC down. They also, blatantly, leave Turkey out of the suspect list. You can see why you need to take this whole article with a huge grain of salt.

The SU-25 "Frogfoot" is hardly a "sophisticated" aircraft, compared to most, and has nowhere near the survivability of the A-10. With its externally mounted, widely separated engines, cockpit armor, and simple, multiply-redundant control systems, a Warthog could take a MANPAD missile hit and make it back to base, or at least to friendly territory before the pilot had to bail out.

I recall that, early in Dollar Bill Clinton´s first term, our special forces were killed, their bodies maimed, in SomAlia.
And one of the reporters asked Dollar Bill Clinton what he was going to do.
Dollar Bill, almost whimpering, said, "I guess we have to reexamine our foreign policy."

A documentary about a Syrian refugee in Germany, who happily lives on state handouts with his two wives and six kids, has angered many in the country where polygamy is against the law. The Spiegel TV film was aired over the weekend, telling the story of 32-year-old Ahmad A. who fled the fighting in Syria’s Aleppo back in 2015 with his large family, and found a safe haven in Schleswig-Holstein, northern Germany. The man lives in a two-story house provided by the community with two wives and six children. Despite polygamy being illegal in Germany, Ahmad was allowed to bring his second

Moms are embarrassing, even when they’re Oscar-winning legends. But Sally Field has succeeded in getting her single son in contact with the Olympics’ breakout star Adam Rippon. Page Six has exclusively learned that Field’s son has reached out personally to figure skating darling Rippon to apologize for his mom’s awkward attempts to set them up on a date. On Friday, filmmaker Sam Greisman tweeted a text conversation between him and Field in which his doting mom encouraged him to “find a way” to ask the scene-stealing skater out on a date, with Field telling her son of Rippon, “Sam . .

Taxes are down. Jobs are forming all over. Regulations have been slashed. Government coffers are filling up. Companies are forming. Migrants are choosing legal over illegal immigration. The nightmare of Obamacare is almost over. Europe is paying its NATO bills. The ISIS empire is dead. North Korea is trembling. Russia is on the run. And somehow, according to a widely dispersed poll, we elected the worst thing we could have done to ourselves in our current president. All those good things, and somehow President Trump has nothing to do with them. This new poll, put out by a couple of political science

DACA coddling upsets other illegals

If rule-of-law advocates are seen as a divided bunch and President Trump himself seems a bit squishy on what kind of bill he will sign to end illegal immigration, it´s worth noting that over on the left, the open-borders lobby, and the garden-variety illegals in particular, are pretty much at each others´ throats over the coddling that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients are getting. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune: “I’m very bitter.

Funny how the Olympic athletes who managed not to insult and offend us by their loudmouth anti-Trump grandstanding before the games seem to be the only ones who either win big medals or else win our hearts anyway. Who wasn´t delighted by Chloe Kim with her snowboarding virtuosity along with her delightful, vibrant, bubbly, teenager personality? [Snip] Then there were the bad sports, the attention-seekers, and worst of all, the anti-Trump loudmouths, who insulted us all with their anti-Trump remarks before they have even competed to show us what they could do in the 2018 Olympics.

I have always prided myself on being an amateur historian, knowing far more than most people. So you can imagine my surprise when I found out, about ten years ago, that I knew nothing about one of the most important battles in world history, whose ramifications echo down to this day. This is the Battle of Cartagena de los Indias, fought between the Spanish and British empires off the coast of present-day Colombia in 1741. It was part of the War of Jenkin´s Ear, a war where Britain´s ultimate aim was to break the Spanish empire and impose a British hegemony

The stock market apparently has decided that the indictments of Russians announced yesterday is good news for the tax-cutting, regulation-slashing president who ignited the boom that is raising corporate profits, full-time employment, and paychecks all over the country. Let CNN and MSNBC and the other Trump-haters bloviate about how this proves something bad about President Trump. The people with money on the line don´t care about manufacturing narratives for political gain; all they care about is a cold-eyed assessment of where this will lead the country. This screenshot from CNBC says it all. At first, there were fears that the country might

U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon did not medal in his final event at the 2018 Winter Olympics, but he remains an Olympic star nonetheless. Rippon emerged as a fan favorite during the Olympics, loved especially for the artistic beauty of his routine, his honesty and hilarious tweets. He also made headlines for a feud with Vice President Mike Pence over the politician’s stance on gay rights. The skater took home a bronze medal in the team event for figure skating. Rippon finished in the men’s figure skating long program Friday, and although he didn’t earn a medal in that event, it was

Joy Behar was forced to apologize to Mike Pence for calling him a crazy person. “The View” host has spent much of the past week dropping not-so-subtle hints that the vice president belongs in the looney bin for suggesting that God speaks to him.

One of Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s lead attorneys has an ethics problem. Actually, a lot of ethics problems, considering what he´s gotten away with. According to investigative journalist Sara Carter, Weissmann has been busted for withholding evidence in a previous court case involving prosecution of organized crime, to put an extra thumb on the scale of justice in his own favor. Carter writes that: In 1997 Andrew Weissmann was officially reprimanded by a judge in the Eastern District of New York for withholding evidence. Weissmann was reported to the Department of Justice Inspector General and Senate Judiciary Committee for alleged “corrupt legal

Asked in 1972 if he believed in miracles, Billy Graham answered: Yes, Jesus performed some and there are many "miracles around us today, including television and airplanes." Graham was no theologian. Neither was he a prophet. Jesus said "a prophet hath no honor in his own country." Prophets take adversarial stances toward their times, as did the 20th century´s two greatest religious leaders, Martin Luther King and Pope John Paul II. Graham did not. Partly for that reason, his country showered him with honors. So, the subtitle of Grant Wacker´s 2014 book "America´s Pastor: Billy Graham and the Shaping of a Nation"

For the past year, chief executives have often talked about the new sense of moral responsibility that corporations have to help their communities and confront social challenges even when Washington won’t. What if the finance industry — credit card companies like Visa, Mastercard and American Express; credit card processors like First Data; and banks like JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo — were to effectively set new rules for the sales of guns in America? Collectively, they have more leverage over the gun industry than any lawmaker. And it wouldn’t be hard for them to take a stand.

With high school students from Parkland in the Capitol this week advocating for gun control, the bill that would have allowed superintendents and principals to designate trained employees who can carry concealed weapons at school didn’t get heard as scheduled. That did not stop debate over the issue. In fact, it had a growing national audience, spurred on by President Donald Trump’s endorsement of the idea on Wednesday.

On Tuesday evening, I was watching CNN (note to editor: my request for hardship duty pay will follow) when I observed a new low point – and considering the recent history of CNN, that’s really saying something. The program was The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer. Like all of the hosts on CNN, including news anchors, Blitzer is consistently anti-Trump so I wasn’t expecting anything close to fair and balanced. But what I saw this time was even more obnoxious and telling. As Blitzer and his talking head guests opined, a chyron on the bottom of the screen
