This video posted by ISIS shows the militants’ jubilation over shooting down a Russian helicopter near Palmyra. The Russian-made helicopter belonged to the Syrian army, while the crew consisted of two Russian pilots, who flew this mission at Syrian govt’s request. Both Russian pilots died.
RT: Islamic State militants have downed a military helicopter near Palmyra, Syria, killing two Russian pilots on board. The helicopter had been attacking the advancing terrorists at Damascus’ request when it was taken down, according to the Russian defense ministry. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/7ibk
The most important detail, not shown on the video, is the weapon with which the ISIS terrorists shot down the helicopter and killed the Russian crew: an American Stinger handheld missile launcher.
According to Syrian minister of information, since May 2016 several dozen such Stingers were delivered to ISIS in Syria through Turkey. Now ISIS-Daesh has the capability of shooting down aircraft it previously could not.
You decide who and why supplies such weapons systems to Syrian terrorists!
US weapons system FIM-92 Stinger produced by Raytheon:
A perfect weapon for any terrorist!
The FIM-92 Stinger is a Man-Portable Air-Defense System (MANPADS) that operates as an infrared homing surface-to-air missile (SAM). It can be adapted to fire from a wide variety of ground vehicles and helicopters (as an AAM). Developed in the United States this weapon system entered service in 1981. It is manufactured by Raytheon Missile Systems.
During the Soviet war in Afghanistan, the CIA sent 2,300 Stinger missiles to various mujaheddin outfits throughout Afghanistan:

ISIL (ISIS) Destroys Priceless Cultural Heritage. Refugee Invasion of Europe. Middle East Predictions
The contents of the first video below is chilling. To me, the most gruesome part is the senseless and brutal destruction of local and worldwide heritage that IS (ISIL/ISIS) brings with them. They already destroyed the ancient cities of Palmyra and Nimrod. Some of the cities mercilessly destroyed and looted to the bone are UNESCO World Heritage sites, whose museums house priceless historic treasures of global significance.
But note what kind of cars and SUVs these armed to their teeth thugs are driving!
We all know who created these forces, deliberately, or just out of sheer stupidity: those who invaded and bombed Afghanistan and Iraq, who later destroyed Libya and who now is trying to destroy Syria. Those who in the ’70s trained Al Qaeda and Taliban to escalate tensions and lure the USSR into Afghanistan. Al Qaeda and others morphed into the so-called Islamic State (IS, aka ISIL), also financed and protected by the same Western forces.
Now we all have to pay the price for what they have done…
MIDDLE EAST PREDICTIONS
To answer a recent remark/question by a reader, whether the Middle East is calming down and the geopolitical battleground is being moved to the Black Sea area.
Can’t say anything comforting, sorry.
Yes, the geopolitical ground zero is spreading to the entire Black Sea – Eastern Mediterranean area, but there is no calming down of the Middle East at all. I predict further escalation of the Middle East tensions and further destructions and spreading of IS. We are nowhere near the end. The situation in the Middle East will continue spiraling out of control and it will be very difficult to calm it down for years. There are too many unresolved issues that will continue coming up as more and more truth and injustices are revealed. The injustices and truth have been suppressed in the Middle East for too long. The whole huge region is simply sizzling and cooking in controversy and painfully bleeding sores. It is very far from the end – it’s just the beginning.
It’ll only end after the very deep-seated internal problems of the Middle East have been resolved.
People of the no man’s land:
One of the problems is the refugee crisis, when hundreds of thousands from Syria, Libya and other countries of the Middle East try to reach EU. The most recent scandal is on the border of Greece and Macedonia. After thousands of refugees attempted to cross by trains from Greece to Macedonia as the most convenient bridge to the rest of the EU, Macedonia deployed army and police to the border to prevent that (so much for the EU policy of open borders). Similar situation recently happened at the la Manche tunnel connecting UK and France.
Presently, crowds of refugees are camping out on the border between Greece and Macedonia. Videos:
We are at a point when EU has no idea how to handle the crisis they helped generate.
The heads of the EU are proposing the following. Why not relocate 100,000 of no man’s land refugees from Greece to…. Ukraine. I’m not kidding, this is the official proposal on the table!
These refugees from Africa are hard-working people, say the authors of the proposal. There are many abandoned or decaying villages in central and western Ukraine. Why not resettle these refugees in those villages, they will rebuild the villages and work the land. Everyone will be happy. Ukraine is trying to join EU, why don’t they start showing their loyalty by helping out and alleviating the EU burden. We are talking about Ukraine here, the country in pre-default state and in the middle of a civil war!
