Don’t poke the bear!
Erdogan better stop poking the bear. Turkish troops try to shoot down Russian planes so Russians blow them up. Russians are funny like that, no sense of humor. Erdogan back-stabbed Russia and reneged on the deal they made. Putin should not take the betrayal personally because Turkey does it to everyone. Someone should tell Erdogan that he is not a super power. He is fighting two wars one in Libya and one in Syria and Turkey is a NATO member. Now he is trying to curry favor with the West by supporting western backed terrorists in Idlib. However, that means direct confrontation with Russia as well as the battle hardened Syrian army. And how the West is squealing. They are in full propaganda mode saying that a million refugees are in danger from the Syrian army who are raping and pillaging (lol). Yeah, OK…..we get it…..they are “safe” with ISIS. You can lock Julian Assange up but you can’t lock us all up for noticing your criminality.The SAA (Syrian Arab Army) with Hezbollah, Russia,Iran, Iraq, and Shia militias is really fighting the War On Terror
How Russia Deals with Terrorists
This is how Spetnaz – (Russian Special forces) deal with the terrorists recruited from 110 different countries:
Turkey just got whupped
I feel sorry for the men who got killed but the blame needs to be squarely placed on Erdogan’s adventurism. As one commentator notes: “Putin warned him of the last coup attempt ( 2 Foreign Ambassadors assassinated as payback ) and a large number of top military/Gov people in Turkey swept up, upsetting many. Now we have possibility Turkish purchase of S-400 was either a play, or can be basis of Diplomatic olive branch to Pentagon military research groups. The new Turkstream pipeline will ship 3 billion cubic meters (bcm) to Bulgaria and approx another 3 bcm to Greece, Turkstream is 2 pipes of 15.75 bcm pa each. Then there’s the Fethullah Gülen PA 26 acre compound and it’s Islamicist movement and DC deep cavern backers, who’d like him gone. MBS in Saudi loves the fact that Erdo leaked the Khasshoggi tapes. The Kurds are thrilled his sponsorship of Al-Qaeda Syria has up-ticked. Then there’s the F35 components that Turkey is STILL manufacturing until supply chain reboot in March 2020 causing all kinds of drama in MIC. Finally there’s the tanking Turkish economy. True mates he has few”. Or as another commentator reminds us: “Keep in mind, Turkey is NATO. So when the backstabbing Kurds who are “beloved” by the Neocons & Democrats were getting killed by Turkey who is aiding and abetting the terrorists according to Senile Joe & Traitor/Felon Hillary, one must remember its NATO who is killing the Kurds! This is the same NATO that assisted Islamic Fundamentalist terrorists in Libya,Bosnia, & Kosovo. So Turkey is waging 2 wars , one in Libya and one in Syria”. Yes, good reminder. The Yugoslavian (Bosnian) war was not what it seemed. Many terrorist (including some from 9/11) got their training there. Christians were portrayed as the “bad guys”. Remember this territory was the old Ottoman Empire and Erdogan (that faithful NATO member) fancies himself the as the Sultan.
At first the Turks were told that 22 soldiers were killed by Russia but the number now stands at 29. Turkey has shut down its twitter feed (don’t they always).https://www.rt.com/news/481862-turkey-social-media-blackout-syria/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

Article on SAA in 21st Century Wire (26 th Feb): Despite Turkish Threats, Syrian Army Launches New Military in Jabal al-Zawiya, Idlib
Now watch this video from the GrayZone. I saw a recent tweet claiming that Syrian soldiers were raping women while wearing T-shirts with Assads face (and taking Viagra). This reminded me of the WWI propaganda where the dirty “HUN” had competitions on how many Belgian babies they could skewer on their bayonet. One had three babies on his bayonet! This is absolute nonsense.

Israel and Syria
Israeli preemptive attacks on Syrian Army occurring along the Golan border. Syrian television reported on Thursday night that Israeli helicopters attacked Syrian army targets in the Quneitra area. The aircraft reportedly came from the Golan Heights area. It was also reported that three Syrian soldiers were lightly wounded in the attack.
Israeli aircraft attacked Syrian army positions in the Golan Heights, Syrian state media said late Thursday, as tensions rose along the border following an earlier reported strike. Helicopters fired missiles at army positions in Quneitra, and the nearby towns of al-Qataniyah and al-Hurriyet, the state-run SANA news agency said. It said three soldiers were injured in the strikes. … Israel has in the past accused Iran of attempting to set up rocket launching crews and other “terror infrastructure” in the Syrian Golan Heights, to be used against Israel. An agreement with Russia was supposed to push Iranian and Tehran-backed militias, including Hezbollah, dozens of kilometers away from the border.
