While European officials expressed a lot of uncertainty over reports that Russia may have shipped jet fuel to their own air force in Syria, docking in an EU port along the way, and potentially violating EU sanctions in doing so, the US State Department responded with a statement of condemnation against Russia.
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov responded angrily, insisting that in the US doesn’t intend to fight terrorists in Syria they should at least get out of the way and let Russia do it.
Konashenkov went on to say that the US policy is to repeatedly hamper Russia’s ability to fight terrorism, as an effort to conceal their own failures. The US has repeatedly condemned Russia for carrying out airstrikes against al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front and its territory.
The State Department insists EU sanctions were violated because the jet fuel Russia shipped is to be used for airstrikes, but Russia insists that the EU ban was only on giving jet fuel to Syria’s Air Force, and that there was no restriction on Russia fueling their own planes. EU officials have not offered any clarification.

Since when is Russia or anyone else outside of the US Empire required to follow EU sanctions? The arrogance of these buffoons is breathtaking. Putin should tell them to take a long walk off a short pier.
Russia and the US arguing who wants to have the upper hand in killing Sunni Muslims in Syria, the Americans working in four countries, Syria and Iraq, Libya, Yemen, it turned out that every Sunni Muslims is a terrorist, I’m waiting for a bomb to hit my house at any moment, the Russians bombed two hospitals in Syria this morning, luckily there were cameras inside to reveal the incident, one minute the nurses were feeding an infant and within second puff every body was covered with dust from the cement, i could see a nurse holding a feeding bag then came another bomb hit the adjoining room, two people were injured and two people died, bravo Russia won, two terrorists to be got knocked out .
Fiction, fantasy and fairytale.
lmao. Are you one of the “white helmet” propagandists? I thought I saw Putin in the hospital biting off one of the babies heads too!
Obviously the “empire” is getting crazy.The “empire” machinations(open support for terrorists) is now an open secret.The “empire” can not stop Russia but can whine like the stinking trash it is.
If I were Konashenkov, I’d be busy releasing a steady drumbeat of intel data showing the U.S. and its regional proxies are the owners and sole proprietors of wahhabist terrorism. It’s a label that will stick and they will not be able to squirm their way out from under it. Keep drilling them with it. Every sentence should begin with a condemnation of the US’s support for terrorism.
Everyone in the region already knows. Mostly, they agree with what the US is doing. They help. In fact, it is more the US helping them in their terrorism, helping the same people who attacked the US on 9/11 because now they are attacking Russian and Iranian interests.
There is no need to tell them relentlessly. They are already laughing.
Europe deludes itself. The US lies to itself. But neither will report the steady drumbeat. Their media are as much propaganda on this as is RT.
I think you are wrong. It has had an effect with the public and their support of their criminal politicians has diminished. Trump beat Clinton on this relentlessly.
Western powers created the “moderate rebel” terrorists in Syria, surely they want to protect their investment.
I say bomb the hell out of Al Nusra. I wonder how active Egypt will be now that Sisi said he supports Assad?
Sisi is trying to get more money from uncle sugar. He will fall inline when he gets his payoff.
Sho thing It’s all about Uncle Sugar –I like it “UNCLE SUGAR”
Given the shite that’s kicking off in the Ukraine, it seems that Obama is really pushing for a war, so we can expect lots more provocation from the USA – until Trump takes over, anyway.
So much for the fight against Daesh. What a confused mob of lackeys all pandering for American special interests and their loot.
There has been talk that if Trump picks Giuliani for a cabinet post -Rudy said he will continue to follow Clinton plan as far as Syria is concerned . NO GOOD.
Remember Cuba? well ……
The CIA told President John F. Kennedy that the Cuban people did not support Castro and would welcome the “liberation”

Senator Graham is still spouting the same drivel about Syria!
The US does not “fight terrorists” in Syria, it supports and uses them in its regime change efforts.
The US is in conflict with Russia, with the US using terrorism as its proxy force.
The EU is nothing but a bunch of oligarchs albeit unelected oligarchs throwing away Europe’s sovereignty. The EU cannot say boo without checking with their masters in DC. Shame.
This is why corporate establishment media no longer has any credibility.
