It’s a real war out there … and Russians and Americans are practically in combat
The Russian military spokesman in this briefing, General Sergei Rudskoi, in a matter-of-fact deadpan, explains that ‘US Secret Services’, and their Al Qaeda proxies, had a very, very bad day yesterday.
Americans love bombing small, defenseless countries into the stone age, it’s part of their culture like baseball, apple pie, and morbid obesity. One of the things they never do, however, is pick on a country that can fight back.
General Rudskoi has just the facts, and nothing but the facts
Well this time they messed with the Russian Bear himself and like Napoleon and Hitler before them, reality ensued.
Yesterday, according to General Rudskoi, an army of “moderate” decapitators, directed by their ‘US Secret Service’ handlers, double-crossing the Russians by violating a ceasefire agreement, launched an attack with tanks and artillery on the Syrian Government north of Hama in the de-escalation zone, in an attempt to halt the Syrian Army’s successful advance.
A key part of the plan was to capture 29 Russian soldiers, which would have been a major embarrassment for Russia.
Here’s where the story gets gripping.
The 29 Russians were trapped for several hours by the militants, engaged in a heavy fire-fight for their very survival.
Finally, a Spetsnaz (Russian Special Operations) unit, partially composed of ‘military natives of the North Caucusus’ (these are probably Chechens, the fiercest soliders Russia has), broke through the terrorist line.
Then, like lightning over the skies of Syria, Russian Sukhoi jets conducted pinpoint strikes against the opposition force, which was subsequently bombarded with an artillery salvo, providing cover for the Russian rescue squad.
They successfully reached their comrades, and though three operators were injured, Russia suffered no casualties.
AL-Qaeda and the US ‘Secret Services’ however, had a very, very, bad day.
“187 objects, about 850 TERRORISTS, 11 TANKS, four armoured vehicles, 46 PICKUPS, five mortars, 20 TRUCKS and 38 WEAPONS WAREHOUSES were destroyed in a 24-hours period by the Russian counterattack.”
The Russian General’s closing comment, delivered in matter-of-fact monotone was classic:
“The operation to destroy the terrorists will be continued.”
Here’s the full transcript of the General’s remarks: (Key parts in bold)
A large-scale offensive on the positions of Syrian Government troops in the Idlib de-escalation zone, which breached a ceasefire agreement, was “initiated by the American secret services to stop the successful advance of the [Syrian] government troops to the east of Deir ez-Zor,”
