1st combat mission: Russian aircraft carrier’s Syrian op (VIDEO)

Russia’s flagship aircraft carrier ‘Admiral Kuznetsov’

What is the problem with Russia?

  • Pulling the wool over the eyes of the Sheeple.  
  • Democrats and Republicans scream that the "evil" Russians are in Syria. We must fight them. But hello . . . Russia first signed a treaty with Syria way back in 1946 and has had a naval base there since 1971.
  • In spite of the BS, Russians in Syria are nothing new. What was new was the CIA giving mountains of weapons to Islamists in an unconstitutional war to overthrow Russia's ally the Syrian government. When Russia responded to the CIA we saw US political hacks scream that the Russians are causing wars.

(RT News)  -  An RT crew has witnessed the first-ever combat operation of Russia’s flagship aircraft carrier ‘Admiral Kuznetsov’ as Su-33 fighter jets have been launching from its deck to carry out strikes against jihadists in Homs and Idlib provinces.

On Tuesday, the Russian military launched a large-scale operation against terrorists in two provinces of Syria with the ‘Admiral Kuznetsov’ and the frigate ‘Admiral Grigorovich’, part of the Russian naval group off the Syrian coast in the eastern Mediterranean, participating in the strikes.
It took the RT crew some half-an-hour aboard a helicopter to get to the carrier from the Russian airbase in Latakia province, Syria.
When we arrived [the aircraft] had been busy carrying out practice flights and perfecting take-offs, landings and air maneuvers with the ultimate goal of defeating terrorism in Syria,” RT’s Igor Zhdanov reported from the carrier.
He said that all the jets on the deck were fully equipped with weaponry and ready for the combat mission, carrying high-precision 500kg bombs that explode within a meter-and-a-half from any target they aim for.
The ship, built by the Black Sea Shipyard, is manned by nearly 2,500 crew and carries dozens of fighter jets and helicopters. Its main fixed-wing combat plane is the multi-role Sukhoi Su-33 fighter jet, which can perform air superiority, fleet defense, and air support missions and can also be used for direct-fire support of amphibious assault, reconnaissance and placement of naval mines.
The ship also carries the Kamov Ka-27 and Kamov Ka-27S helicopters for anti-submarine warfare, search and rescue missions, as well as small transport.
RT’s crew was lucky to witness the first combat take-off of Sukhoi jets, which on Tuesday targeted factories and arms depots operated by jihadists in Homs and Idlib provinces of Syria. The exact location of the targets was not released by the Defense Ministry, but a drone video of the attacks has been made public.

With Russia and Iran backing Syria just who do you think is left on the field to provide all those modern weapons to ISIS and the Islamist thug "rebels"?

Let's spell out the answer: C-I-A

People are dead because we provided the weapons and an endless re-supply of ammo.

Comrade Obama and the whores in Congress have unconstitutionally involved us in a civil war that is none of our business.

I understand it is not possible to convince people who do not want to hear. But below is part of one article I have republished.

(New York Times) - With help from the C.I.A., Arab governments and Turkey have sharply increased their military aid to Syria’s opposition fighters in recent months, expanding a secret airlift of arms and equipment for the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, according to air traffic data, interviews with officials in several countries and the accounts of rebel commanders.

The airlift, which began on a small scale in early 2012 and continued intermittently through last fall, expanded into a steady and much heavier flow late last year, the data shows. It has grown to include more than 160 military cargo flights by Jordanian, Saudi and Qatari military-style cargo planes landing at Esenboga Airport near Ankara, and, to a lesser degree, at other Turkish and Jordanian airports.
