In an apparent case of short term memory loss... serial amnesia... or perhaps, just convenience... the Russian media organs are today bemoaning the fact that northern Syrias' Kurdish-majority Cantons have picked up enough weapons to enable a defense against attacks by Islamist extremist jihadis... a la those Chechens who waged war against Moscow not so long ago!
"The establishment of peace in war-torn Syria is impeded by external – in particular, American – interference in the crisis, Assistant to the Secretary of the Russian Security Council Alexander Venediktov told Ria Novosti.
“The return of peace and stability to Syria is hampered by continued external interference in the Syrian crisis. For example, in the territory controlled by the people’s self-defense units of Kurdistan, some 20 US military bases have been created,” the official said."
What's particularly mind-boggling about this latest exercise in "pushing" the envelope of our credulity is the resort to not only blaming the Kurds for disturbing the "PEACE" - OF THE GRAVE
sort which the Turk ghazis seek to bring to the Syrian 'infidels' of Syria...
but the overt lack of accuracy in assigning the imputed source of the Afrin YPG's weaponry to "Americans" - when we've seen repeated indications that the tank-killers and other accoutrements of that militia body's armament are of 'IRANIAN' ORIGIN ... AS IN ... supplied via Syrian and Hezbollah aligned sources en situ!
Next, the Russkies will be blaming the Kurds and Americans.... for shooting down their plane over northern Aleppo... instead of the obvious suspects - Turks and their jihadis proxies! OOPS!
"Washington provoked Ankara into launching a military offensive on Syria’s Kurdish-controlled Afrin by “boosting” the Kurds with advanced weapons, according to the Russian Security Council."
I'd say somebody is not just 'pushin' a fake storyline past the point of no return... but utilizing "boostin" rocket power of the 'fake news' kind to propel that moon launch with!
