Every single time that the Russian military makes international news, I sit back and think about the humiliation this country would receive in the event of a war – the Jews would be at fault for that potential conflict, just for the record.
Like, remember those Patriotard movies from the 1980’s with the lone American standing against all odds?
Well, here’s the Slavic version in full force.
The Russian airman killed by militants in the Al-Nusra-controlled area in Idlib province Saturday was identified as Major Roman Filippov, photos posted on the Telegram channel of independent investigative group Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT) indicate.
Earlier, the Russian Defense ministry confirmed that the pilot died “during combat with terrorists.”
One of the pictures, published on the CIT Facebook page, shows what appears to be a commendation authored by special operations air group commander Lt. Colonel Sergey Aksenov, recommending that a state award be bestowed upon Filippov for completing combat missions in Syria. CIT claims the document was found in the slain pilot’s pocket.
Another photo shows the gun Filippov apparently used to fight for his life. A Stechkin machine pistol (APS), standard issue for Russian combat pilots, is seen next to three magazines, one of them empty and two half-empty.
So, in layman’s terms, this guy parachuted down onto the ground surrounded by hundreds of American-backed Moslems, and then proceeded to use up his ammo before falling to enemy fire.
It’s literally the techie remake of Boromir’s final stand in LOTR.
The Russian Defense Ministry has yet to officially release the identity of the deceased. Earlier, it confirmed the pilot had successfully ejected from the aircraft before being killed while engaging terrorists on the ground. Moscow said the jet appears to have been shot down by a man-portable air-defense system (MANPAD).
Now I wonder where these primitives got something so advanced?
Tahrir al-Sham, an extremist group linked to Al-Nusra terrorists, claimed responsibility for the attack. Earlier, videos and statements about the Russian pilot appeared on the Twitter account of the Jaysh al-Nasr, a militant group affiliated to the Free Syrian Army.
One of the groups that America has still not fully disowned – a true commitment by the Trump Administration would entail full support for the Assad government, and an end to calls for his removal.
I mean, I like harsh and intense rhetoric along the lines of what we heard during the Presidential Campaign, but according to my news feed, hardly a week goes by without somebody in Donald’s inner circle demanding regime change in Syria.
Call it what you will, but these remarks go a long way towards hardening the resolve of these Sunni animals in their fight against two of the arguably best regimes on the planet.
