Failed US Attack: Assad Impressed With 1970’s Soviet Weapons

Bashar Assad noted the superiority of Russian weapons over the Western, said member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, Sergei Zheleznyak.

“Assad spoke very positively about Russian weapons,” the deputy said after talking with a group of Russian parliamentarians with the Syrian president.

At the same time, Zheleznyak said that they did not discuss the supply of Russian air defense systems with the Syrian leader.

Earlier, the Defense Ministry said that Russia could return to consideration of the issue of deliveries of the S-300 SAM to Damascus.

Meanwhile, Assad criticized American armament.

“Yesterday we saw American aggression, and we repulsed it with rockets of  1970’s release … Since the 1990’s, American films have shown that Russian weapons are backward, and today we see who really lags behind,” the Syrian leader said.  

His words were passed by another member of the delegation – the chairman of the patriotic platform of “United Russia” Dmitry Sablin. On Wednesday, an official delegation of Russian parliamentarians arrived in Syria on an official visit. During the attack on Damascus, none of them suffered.

On Saturday night, the United States, Britain and France fired more than 100 missiles at civilian and military sites in Syria, injuring three people. Most of them Syrian air defense managed to bring down.

At the same time, there is no evidence of Damascus using prohibited substances. The attack occurred prior to the OPCW investigation. Experts of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties (CPAP) last week visited the site of the alleged incident and found no traces of toxins.

In Moscow, the actions of Western countries were called “an impudent violation of international law”.

Things to ponder

While our media prostitutes, many Hollywood celebs, and politicians and opinion shapers make so much noise about the still to be demonstrated damage done by the Russkies to our nonexistent democracy, this is what the sanctimonious US government has done overseas just since the close of World War 2. And this is what we know about. Many other misdeeds are yet to be revealed or documented.

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.
