After months of talk and little action, President Putin has finally stood up to the Pentagon Deep State for its crimes against the people of Syria. The Allies have declared a de facto no-fly zone in Syria west of the Euphrates River and cut military co-operation with the treacherous Coalition.
According to a statement issued by the Russian Ministry of Defense, "any flying objects of the Coalition including manned or unmanned aerial vehicles discovered west of the Euphrates River will be followed by Russian ground and air forces as hostile targets."
Russia's actions comes after a cowardly and intentional attack on a Syrian fighter-bomber by a US F-18 outside of Raqqa this weekend; the fifth savage attack on Syrian regulars and the fourth since President Trump took office. However, Trump has clearly lost control of the Deep State Obama/Clinton satraps in the Pentagon. Putin---as he has always done---is resisting the aggressor and doing what American leadership is unable or unwilling to do.
The two greatest threats to Civilization at this point in history are the Jihadi Cult and Western Cultural Marxism. Russia has recognized the need to fight the first; and that it is time to fight the second as well. Under Putin's leadership, the anti-Jihad Alliance came into being; as did unprecedented humanitarian aid to countries suffering under the economic jackboot of heartless Western Liberals. Putin rescued the people of Crimea, Donbas, Ossetia, Chechnya, and now Syria from seeing their countries exploited and ruined---or turned into Beltway/Wall Street vassalages. It's to be hoped that the no-fly zone will soon be implemented over the rest of sovereign Syria as well.
The arrogant Pentagon is pretending not to be intimidated; but their confederates in Australia have already fled back to the safety of Down Under.
In a related bit of good news, after two days as an MIA, Syrian commandoes rescued the pilot of the downed plane, unharmed, after a daring mission behind ISIS lines. Capt. Ali Fahd is reportedly recovering and reunited with his family.
