The Russian Foreign Ministry has announced the full suspension of the “deconfliction” line of communication for US and Russian military forces operating within Syria today, citing US military aggression against the Syrian government last night as justification.
The US had used the communications system just last night to notify Russia that they were about to attack Syria, advising Russian troops at the attacked base to move to safety. Russia appears to be betting that, with no line for the US to give such “warnings,” they won’t risk attacking bases with Russian troops on them, risking killing Russian soldiers and dramatically escalating the situation.
The Russian Defense Ministry has also announced plans to deploy more of its advanced air defense systems into Syria in response to the US attack, saying they will serve to protest “the most sensitive objects of the Syrian infrastructure, warning the risk of direct US-Russia conflict has greatly increased because of last night’s attacks.
In addition, Russia has announced the deployment of the frigate Admiral Grigorovich to their naval base at Tartus, Syria, near where the US ships fired scores of Tomahawk missiles at Syria. While the Grigorovich is smaller than the US warships in the area, it is one of Russia’s newest ships, and capable of cruise missile fire of its own.
The Russian Foreign Ministry made clear they view the US attack as “a clear act of aggression against a sovereign Syria.” In their statement, they also said they believed the US had the attack planned well before the putative gas attack in northern Syria, having all the forces in place for the attack well ahead of time.

Russia caved. The communications link is NOT going to go away suddenly….
Really, Rick? Did Russia really cave? You cited CBS, which is listed among other outlets in the Zionist Propaganda Machine.
No, Russia did NOT cave. If you believe cutting military communications with the US over the attack on Syria is caving, you’re really deluded. I strongly suggest that you quit reading/watching the Propaganda Machine and follow alternative media, to seek the truth. The so-called chemical weapons attack has already been debunked. The tragedy occurred as a result of a bomb striking a chemical weapons dump containing sarin gas that was abandoned by ISIS .. So, if you want to raise accusations, raise them against ISIS.
Did you even read the article?
It’s time to leave the United States. The majority are totally clueless and really believe that Trump was right, and Assad killed his own people and deserved this. Go ahead and talk to people, you will be surprised how many will start an argument with you and say that you’re the one who is being lied to. I am convinced that a profound event will take place which will cripple America, whether nuclear or other false flag, which will cause martial law and the draft for those who survive. Can you feel it ?
I agree completely. I’ve been talking to some local people asking then things like: “What do you think about Trump attacking Syria”? And the responses were: “Well it’s about time we got a president with some b@lls”, and “good, they deserve it”, etc.
It seems these small town folks have no idea of the danger they’re actually being put in, no empathy for other people, no critical thinking skills, etc. They’re just flag-waving blowhards who worship the state.
Russia is now setting up missile defense systems in Syria
I think Russia has had just about enough.
And it is rumored that those systems really work. Russian news sources reported that a majority of the Tomahawk missiles fired at Syria missed their mark. Like the F-35 fighter, they are the product of an extremely corrupt manufacturing system.
“Russia appears to be betting that”
Russia is not “betting” on anything.Ditz is missing the point again in an attempt to paint Russians as “weak”.
What this actually means is that No US or any vassal state aircraft will fly in Syria starting today because it’s not only too risky but also very foolish. They instantly becomes fair game for Russian and Syrian air defences.
Having done that, next step for the legitimate government of Syria is to in name implement a NFZ over all of Syria for uninvited hostiles which the US now is after having officially attacked Syria and killed a number of civilians and servicemen (not to mention the previous US air cover mission for ISIS in Deir Ezzor which killed 100 Syrians)
