Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and Syrian foreign minister Walid al-Moallem hold a joint press conference following their meeting in Moscow on November 27.
Both leaders are expected to discuss the possibility of an international anti-terror operation in Syria and to discuss Tuesday’s downing of a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 by Turkish F-16 fighter jets.
Sergey Lavrov talks about economic sanctions on Turkey, suspension of visa free regime for Turkish citizens and the cost of aggression for the Turkish economy.
Mr Lavrov mentions that “Only the Syrian people may decide their own future without any interference from outside” and “.. these decisions are to find answers to questions of who is who” referring to who is behind the different groups “who is a terrorist and who is healthy opposition”. I burn to see what the future holds, I hope and pray that Mr Lavrov and the leadership of Russia will find those people that is BEHIND the who’s and groups that has spread this chaos over the land of Syria. The individuals, the ones in power that fund and support these groups for their own greed, wickedness and expose all of them. They need to and have to, for all humanity’s sake. I am for Putin, I support Russia and I love Russia, I wish I was born a Russian. The star shall rise from the east, the Russian bear is that star and we all should support it, it’s the truth and the good.. versus evil. You decide and which side you want to be. God bless Russia and it’s fight against evil.
Armenia? It intrigues me. An ancient, orthodox civilization, whose only protection has ever been Russia. Slaughtered by the Turks 1915, slaughtered again by them in Syria just recently. I personally believe they made a major mistake exiting the Soviet Union.
I’m wondering if the Armenians will again request autonomous status within the Russian federation, which would also give Russia a border with both Turkey and Iran.
I know there’s many hurdles with this, but with developments as rapid as they are, it must be a possibility. With all these developments in mind, and those to come, plus the recent attempt at color revolution in Armenia, more attempts to ramp up tension with Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh, whether the Saker could arrange someone to do an update, or Sitrep, on Armenia, with the above possibilities in mind. Just a thought.
I highly recommend Arevordi’s blog:
“Heralding the Rise of Russia
Russo-Armenian relations, Eurasian geopolitics and resisting the Western alliance”
Thanks for the link.
Looking briefly through it, as well as the comments section, and a very short google scan, it appears Turkey is ripe for balkanization. Many countries in the region, eg; Greece, Bulgaria, Syria, Iraq, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, and the Kurds of course, have historical territorial claims on Turkey. There’s a lot of animosity and historical baggage regarding Turkey.
According to Wikipedia (and yes, I know its not fully reliable, but is still a good place to gain a base overview):
“At the end of the war, after Germany’s capitulation, many Armenians in both the Republic, including Armenian Communist Party First Secretary Grigor Harutyunyan (Arutyunov), and the diaspora lobbied Stalin to reconsider the issue of taking back the provinces of Kars, Iğdır, and Ardahan, which Armenia had lost to Turkey in the Treaty of Kars. In September, 1945, the Soviet Union announced that it would annul the Soviet-Turkish treaty of friendship that was signed in 1925. Soviet Minister of Foreign Affairs Vyacheslav Molotov presented the claims put forth by the Armenians to the other Allied heads.
Turkey itself was in no condition to fight against the Soviet Union, which had emerged as a superpower after the war. By the autumn of 1945, Soviet troops in the Caucasus and Soviet-occupied Iran were already assembling for an invasion of Turkey. However, as the hostility between the East and West developed into the Cold War, especially after the issuing of the Truman Doctrine in 1947, Turkey strengthened its ties with the West. The Soviet Union relinquished its claims over the lost territories, understanding that the newly formed NATO would intervene on Turkey’s side in the event of a conflict.”
My thoughts are that if Turkey became fully destabilized, which is now a real possibility, then a veritable free-for-all could develop, and Turkey could end up becoming the rump state instead of Syria. And Russia and Iran would be the protectors of these enlarged states. Its all certainly giving me pause for thought.
re: rumor that life insurance policies have been cancelled For members of Turkish air
force ( spoof)
however, evidently this is one of these utterances of a man with a pea brain and clay feet
(note to moderator: this is important –maybe crucially so)
RT may have it totally backward:
If so.. then Russia needs to be “en garde ” because Erdogan might have been told to buck up because phase II was about to be launched– help is on the way in other words or he is being set up majorly. This is not over yet by a long shot. A barking dog gets bold when his master is up and about.
How stable is this nut case? When a ruler turns out to be a thug logic don’t dictate actions only ego and prestige. Now he is threating Russia about shooting down his planes inside syria. There seems to be a major mobilization on the Syrian border.. Russia is probably keeping long range strategic bombers on standby.. Since the terrorists are controlled by Turkey anyway, who are the soldiers going to fight? Saudis saying ready to invade Syria with out Turkish fiends and Russia is an enemy..
Major deployment of Turkey’s NATO-assigned Sabra tanks to the Iraqi border. TR assault on Mosul maybe? Tanks+
Dozens of Turkey’s most modern tanks & SP artillery deployed along SYR & IRQ border. Major assault in the works.
Report: Turkish military deployed 55.000 soldiers on #Syria border, #Kilis and #Gaziantep.
TR front-line MBTs shifted from 1st army/NATO region of Tekirdag to Iraq & N Aleppo borders.
Tayyip has lost the game in N Aleppo & Idlib so he’s making a new play now. Gotta hand it 2 the bastard, he never gives up. Now he wants 2+become the ground force against ISIS & wipe out the Kurds at the same time. Looks like tanks will go 2 both Mosul & Jarabulus, maybe Azaz.
A rather desperate game may be afoot:
#Putin: President Al-Assad Our Natural Ally in Fighting Terrorism
Lavrov: ‘That group’ that were shooting at our ejected pilot must be listed as terrorist, no way forward before that –
#Saudi spokesperson says that downing of Russian jet will be repeated because “WE” are at war with #Russia? #Syria
No weapons dropping to Kurds but air support @ConflictHurts
Syrian Democratic Forces Capture Al-Malkiyah in Northern #Aleppo …
Air strikes helped kurds to advance today against Ahrar al Sham and r just j=few km from the Turkish borders @ConflictHurts
Map of Latakia.. SAA very close to Turkish border.. If not for Turkies direct military help, the area would already be under SAA control.. As we saw in india when Pakistan occupied a few hills with less than 500 men, it took a million men and a formidable operation to dislodge them from the area. Syria not having the man power would make it much harder. All you can do is cut off supplies and let the terrorists starve. No donkeys, camels and mules in Syria to supply them.
as of Nov21.. Not latest..

The butcher’s bill is more depressing than that:
Iranian military advisers and soliders killed since RU intervention
IRG top adviser to Al Qods Force Command of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Brigadier General Hassan Karim Bour, said that almost 188 iranian officers, military advisers and soliders were killed since the russian intervention. He added they died for the coalition (Russia-Iran- Assad) in which Iran plays the main role in Syria against the US, their allies and Daesh.
Seems Putin has given the go ahead to plaster the net with pictures of IS and Turkish officials..

WTF? So now erdo is going to attack IS with a ground offensive in both Iraq and Syria with US cover.. So save the terrorists this is his move? Send Turkish soldiers into Syrian and Iraqi cities? On the way smash the YPG and Other kurd formations that’s attacking IS.. Everyone expects Syria and Iraq to just stand by while Turkey invades? All this to save the terrorists and his sons rep as a terrorist accomplice ? If the US set this all up then the USAF will provide air support for this.. Then it was a US setup from the get go..
TR dictators’ grand slam move. Since TAF has stopped SYR ops, USAF will have 2 fly cover 4 TR tanks.

Syrian_Opposition Shells #Russian Reporters With #US-Made TOW Missiles…
Commenting on a rebel-posted video, experts confirmed that the recently shelled Russian journalists including RT correspondents were targeted by a US-made TOW anti-tank system used by Syrian militants, RT reported.
“The landscape is very very reminiscent of the one when we came under fire from militants just a few days ago, on November 23,” Kosarev told RT. “And actually you can see people running for cover at a distance and I’m pretty sure it must have been us. And that person running in the back must be me.”
Whatever Ankara would claim, it’s beyond its capability to compete with Moscow, German media wrote. Russia not only can hit the Turkish economy hard, but also put an end upon Turkish dreams of becoming a leading power in the Middle East region.
After the Su-24 incident, Erdogan’s senior aide Yiğit Bulut wrote for the Star newspaper that Turkey is a “great country,” which won’t allow anyone to interfere in its internal affairs. The country’s president said that Turkey considers the whole region lying between the Balkans, Caucasus and Northern Africa a zone of its sovereign interests.
“Erdogan’s thesis that Turkey is a substantive regional power in the Middle East has shaken,” the German reporter pointed out.
There are Many Voters in France who are hoping that the French Government does not Disrespect those People who were murdered recently in Paris on 13/11/2015.
Those People did not have to be Victims, if Al Qaeda England and Al Qaeda America had not been Rogue Countries, who along with Al Qaeda Turkey, Al Qaeda Saudi Arabia, and Al Qaeda Qatar had not Created and Funded Terrorist ISIL.
There are People of France who do not care if France is known as Al Qaeda France, because they know that the Rival to the French President is a woman.
These French People know that for France to increase their Influence in the World, then the Al Qaeda Countries prefer to deal with a Male Leader.
However, there are other French People whose National Character and Identity is summarized by the phase of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity, and they hope that the French Government does not betray the French People on that which defines the French as Human Beings, or that the French Government defecates on the Precious Sacrifice of citizens of Paris on 13/11/2015, by supporting Terrorist Anglo-America’s Evil Policies in Syria, and these Facts will be the Publicly Debated basis for the next French President Election.
There are some Indisputable Facts concerning Syria, and that is that the Syrian Government has Democratically Elected in a Free and Fair Election, and the Legitimate Syrian Government has been Maliciously Slandered by Al Qaeda Anglo-America, and the other Al Qaeda Countries who have and continue to Provide their Secret Ally of Caliphate ISIL with Money, Weapons, and Supplies.
There could be some Opposition Politicians in Britain, who know that the British Prime Minister wants to Betray Britain and Continental Europe, by creating an ISIL Caliphate, and David Cameron is best described and made known to All British People as Depraved Dave and as Caliphate Cameron, by means of Social Media, after the British Parliament Votes on Syria, and it could be that some Opposition Politicians in Britain want to win the next British Elections because of these Facts, and we all Know that Elections are coming up in America.
The background to what is happening in Syria is that Anglo-America have been in Afghanistan and Iraq for many years at Great Financial Costs, and with considerable casualties to their soldiers.
This is where Terrorist Anglo-America decided to outsource their Terrorism and Illegal Activities for regime change in Libya.
Terrorist Anglo-America found other Terrorists who are Al Qaeda, which America Created and Funded in Afghanistan, and whose Leader was Osama Bin Laden, in order to fight against the Soviet Union’s occupation of Afghanistan.
This Evil, Criminal, and Terrorist Policy of Terrorist Anglo-America did work in Libya, because it gave Terrorist Anglo-America the regime change they wanted in Libya, and so the Evil, Criminal, and Terrorist Anglo-America decided to use this method in Syria for a regime change there, even if Caliphate ISIL would control Syria, even a Caliphate Al Qaeda controls Libya, and and Caliphate Al Qaeda in Libya Supplies Money, Weapons, and Supplies to Caliphate ISIL.
There are certain Characteristics of Criminals and of Terrorists, and some of them are that they do Not respect International Law or the Sovereignty of Countries, and the Greatest Offenders of these are Terrorist Al Qaeda England, Terrorist Al Qaeda America, Terrorist Al Qaeda Turkey, Terrorist Al Qaeda Saudi Arabia, and Terrorist Al Qaeda Qatar.
The World Knows these Facts, and if the French People are betrayed by the French Government, then the French Voters will understand that the French Government has Defined France as being a Septic Tank where the Solids (the excrement) rise to the top of French Politics.
This is because France is among the few Countries in the European Union who have the Capability of being Principled against the Al Qaeda Countries who are the Vile and Putrid Allies of the Evil and Terrorist Anglo-American Empire.
There could be People who think that Syria should file Criminal Charges against these Al Qaeda Countries at every Organisation if they do not Respect the Sovereignty of Countries, if they support Terrorism, and if they do not follow International Law.
