War of words after US air strike in Syria

US-led coalition air strikes have reportedly killed dozens of Syrian soldiers, endangering a US-Russian brokered ceasefire and prompting an emergency UN Security Council meeting as tensions between Moscow and Washington escalated.
The United States military said the coalition stopped the attacks against what it had believed to be Islamic State positions in northeast Syria after Russia informed it that Syrian military personnel and vehicles may have been hit.
The 15-member Security Council met on Saturday night after Russia demanded an emergency session to discuss the incident and accused the United States of jeopardising the Syria deal.
The US ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, chastised Russia for the move.
"Russia really needs to stop the cheap point scoring and the grandstanding," Power told reporters.
She said the United States was investigating the air strikes and "if we determine that we did indeed strike Syrian military personnel, that was not our intention and we of course regret the loss of life."
When asked if the incident spelled the end of the Syria deal between Moscow and Washington, Russia's UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said: "This is a very big question mark."
"I would be very interested to see how Washington is going to react. If what Ambassador Power has done today is any indication of their possible reaction then we are in serious trouble," Churkin told reporters.
Moscow cited the strikes, which allowed Islamic State fighters to briefly overrun a Syrian army position near Deir al-Zor airport, as evidence that the United States was helping the jihadist militants.
"We are reaching a really terrifying conclusion for the whole world: That the White House is defending Islamic State," the RIA Novosti news agency quoted Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying.
Zakharova said the strikes threatened to undermine the ceasefire in Syria brokered by Russia.
The Russian Defence Ministry said US jets had killed more than 60 Syrian soldiers in four air strikes by two F-16s and two A-10s coming from the direction of Iraq.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based monitoring group, cited a military source at Deir al-Zor airport as saying at least 90 Syrian soldiers had been killed.
Australia also participated in the strikes and the Australian Department of Defence offered its condolences to the families of Syrian soldiers killed or wounded in the incident.

 

 Churkin's approximately 20 minute speech:

“It is highly suspicious that the United States chose to conduct this particular air strike at this time,” Russia’s ambassador Vitaly Churkin said.
Churkin questioned why the US suddenly chose to “help” the Syrian army defend Deir ez-Zor after all these years, recalling how American forces just observed terrorists’ movements and did “nothing when ISIS advanced on Palmyra.”
“It was quite significant and not accidental that it happened just two days before the Russian-American arrangements were supposed to come into full force,” Churkin added.
Churkin also questioned why the US decided to classify and not share with the public or even members of the Security Council the text of the US-Russia deal reached in Geneva, before reading out two passages from the document.
The preamble of the document signed by both nations on September 9 read that the US and Russia are prepared to undertake “joint efforts” to stabilize the situation in Syria with special emphasis on the Aleppo region,and would separate moderate opposition forces from those of Al-Nusra. The second passage, presented by Churkin, read that the purpose of the Joint Implementation Group (JIG) is to “enable expanded coordination” between the US and Russia to work together to defeat Jabhat Al-Nusra and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and support the political transition process.
“The beginning of work of the Joint Implementation Group was supposed to be September 19. So if the US wanted to conduct an effective strike on Al-Nusra or ISIS, in Deir ez-Zor or anywhere else, they could wait two more days and coordinate with our military and be sure that they are striking the right people.”
“Instead they chose to conduct this reckless operation,” Churkin said.
He also noted that the US has been voicing its concern over the humanitarian situation in Syria, claiming that because of it, “there are no conditions to start implementing the arrangements of the Joint Implementation Group.” But the Syrian government cleared all obstacles for the humanitarian aid it be delivered, leaving the US with “no serious ground”to halt or postpone the start date of the JIG’s work.
“So it may well be, one has to conclude, that the airstrike has been conducted in order to derail the operation of the Joint Implementation Group and actually prevent it from being set in motion,” Churkin said. “It may well be that the United States is trying to hide the fact that they are actually not in control of the situation, that they allowed the situation to get out of control.”
 Samantha Power is a psychopath. She is the product of a sick, psycopathic culture of extreme entitlement and self righteousness to the point of delusion! Her language is that of a liar, put on the spot, lashing out at everyone else, all the while refusing to accept or acknowledge the actual incident as it occurred and take responsibility for the action undertaken by the US.

 Power spent the next 15 minutes slamming Moscow’s “uniquely hypocritical and cynical” attempt to make Washington explain itself at an urgent UNSC meeting.
“Why are we having this meeting tonight? It is a diversion from what is happening on the ground. (No it isn't) If you don't like what is happening on the ground then you distract. (As Samantha Powers is doing? Distracting from what the US, Australia and UK did) It is a magician's trick… we encourage the Russian Federation to have emergency meetings with the Assad regime and deliver them to this deal,” said Samantha Power.
"What Russia is alleging tonight is that somehow the United States is undermining the fighting against ISIL. The Russian spokesperson even said that the United States might be complicit in this attack … this is not a game," (The US has acknowledged they are complicit, so what is she saying? "This is not a game"? ) she added, before going into details of how Assad government is to blame for the dire situation in Syria.

  2. “At the request of the government of Turkey, US special operations forces are accompanying Turkish and vetted Syrian opposition forces as they continue to clear territory from ISIS in and around the area of the Syrian border near Jarabulus and Ar Rai,” said Pentagon spokesman Jeff Davis.

    Did Turkey request this action? The Pentagon spokesperson claims that is the case.

    Turkish General Akar met Russian General just the other day

    https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20160915-turkish-russian-military-chiefs-to-meet-on-syria/

    "Turkey and Russia’s top generals are to meet in Ankara on Thursday, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    "Chief of General Staff Gen. Hulusi Akar will meet Gen. Valery Gerasimov to discuss Syria and also to talk about military cooperation, a spokesman said.

    Additionally: when the incident occurred between Turkish backed rebels and US Special Forces

    https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/20160916/1045392127/us-state-sept-unable-speak-turkey-vets-forces.html

    Kirby stated "“On specific [Turkish] vetting procedures, that is really beyond me to speak to,” Kirby told reporters, commenting on the report."

    So the US is going to send forces to back up questionably vetted fighters?? Fighters they state are vetted by Turkey?

    It just doesn't make sense to me. These anomalies bother me- they suggest alternative scenarios

  4. Watching Power's grandstanding in front of the media to-day almost made me sick. Did you notice the 'convenient' possible terror attacks in New Jersey and NYC over the past couple of days? They haven't been hyped - yet.

    The torture never stops. The three witches, should clinton assume the presidency, will lead the world to the eve of destruction. Penny, you are absolutely correct in your diagnosis of powers. Her mannerisms scream crazy and delusion. More importantly this group of neo-con crazies are as savage and inhumane as their takfiri off-spring.
