Russia to provide military, other assistance to Iraq, Syria in combating terrorism

I wonder what will happen the first time the US drops’ bombs in Syria and Russian troops are killed. Think the Russians will just blow it off? Yea I’m sure they will.

ITAR-TASS

PARIS, September 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will provide military and other assistance to Iraq and Syria in the fight against terrorism, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on the sidelines of an international conference on Iraq in Paris on Monday.  

“We have spoken of our contribution to supporting the Iraqi government in their fight against terrorists, ensuring security of their state. In a similar way we provide military and other kind of assistance to Syria that is also facing a serious terrorist threat, maybe to a lesser degree. We also provide assistance to our partners in Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Jordan. So we have something to contribute to the common efforts,” Lavrov said.

No double standards in the fight against terrorists are acceptable, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on the sidelines of an international conference on Iraq in the French capital on Monday.

“We have long been raising the issue of terrorist activity that has dramatically intensified in the Middle East and in North Africa after the “Arab spring” events, after the goals of overthrowing the regimes were set above the general goals of preventing the terrorism threat spread,” he said.

“We did this not for the sake of blaming somebody for the past, but exclusively for taking into account the past lessons in the international community’s new actions and drawing the conclusion that no double standards are acceptable in the fight against terrorism, that there are no good and bad terrorists and that it is necessary to take consistent action, without putting that or other political projects above the general task of combating terrorism,” Lavrov said.

“This also refers to such a phenomenon as terrorist organizations that occpupy oilfields and securely sell oil through channels established by them,” he pointed out.

“An emphasis must be laid on the need to prevent a swelling of the ranks of a terrorist international which young people readily join because of bad socio-economic conditions,” Lavrov emphasized.

“Extremists also make use of the Palestinian problem that remains unresolvd for decades, pointing to an unfair attitude to the Arabs in the Middle East,” Russia’s Foreign Minister added.

  1. Right. Just like they “intervened” in Libya–or said they would (as well as China), but then didn’t. Russia’s and China’s Sun Tzu-like strategy is to let the US keep shooting itself in the foot rather than get involved in perhaps preventing innocent civilians being destroyed by taking a stand against US aggression…oh, and, the same Satanic forces that run the US and NATO and Israel also run Russia and China, who will wait many years until the US finally collapses in on itself before they invade here (more than they already have that is). Dog and pony show, as usual. Cowards, just like Israel.

    1. And the above comment is in response to Redhorse’s comment:

      “I wonder what will happen the first time the US drops’ bombs in Syria and Russian troops are killed. Think the Russians will just blow it off? Yea I’m sure they will.”

      1. I think they’ll come awfully close to doing something, but unless Iran gets involved or unless the U.S. attacks Iran, then Russia will most likely not get involved, regardless of what they say.

        As far as China getting involved…BAHAHAHAHA!!! Don’t make me laugh.

        I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. China only cares about China and NO ONE ELSE. China will ONLY attack if their country itself is attacked. That’s it. If Russia or North Korea gets attacked, they will do nothing. That’s just the way they roll.

        1. That may well be true, NC, but it is definitely in China’s best interests to ally themselves with Russia, more so than with any other country, considering their proximity to each other.

          They’ve been making a number of interesting deals lately.

          1. When it comes to economic interests, yes they definitely ally themselves with one another in order to strengthen their economy. The only thing China cares about is their economy and becoming the next big economic power. But when it comes to war and aggression, that’s a different story. They’ll leave that to the Ruskies and will ONLY attack if they are attacked upon.

            Remember: China is a country that gets everyone to do their dirty work for them, while they cash in on the benefits. Kinda like the Israel of Asia. 😉

  2. Yea, I’m sick of the waiting game. Can we just get this party started already?

    As the old saying goes, “Shit or get off the pot!”
