Russia To Give New Missiles to Planes Bombing ISIS

  Russia To Give New Missiles to Planes Bombing ISIS As Tu-22M3 supersonic bombers blasted the last of ISIS in Syria, Russia announced the new Tu-22M3M fitted with missiles that can soar 130,000 feet and attack 620 miles away. Russia has completed designs to upgrade one of its most powerful aircraft, giving it brand-new hardware and the ability to carry advanced, precision cruise missiles that travel hundreds of miles at five times the speed of sound.

The image provided by the Russian defense ministry was damning: three Islamic State trucks led by an armored vehicle on their way to a key battlefield in eastern Syria, allowed safe passage by the United States.

Russian drones, its foreign ministry said on social media, spotted the convoy Abu Kamal on Nov. 9, the same day Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces said they captured the key militant stronghold on the Euphrates River. Their safe passage was “irrefutable evidence” the United States allows Islamic State to wreak havoc to meet their interests in the region, the ministry said on Facebook and Twitter.

But if you’re a gamer interested in air combat simulators, you may have already seen the convoy before you gunned downed digital enemies on your computer screen while playing AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron, released in 2015 by the Byte Conveyor game studio.

The game, developed for smartphones and shown in videos posted by what appears to be a now-defunct company, allows users to destroy enemy vehicles from the controls of the AC-130, the military’s go-to aircraft for close air support and ground strikes using weapons that transform the plane into a piece of artillery with wings.

Coalition air strikes decline sharply in Syria and Iraq: general

  Coalition air strikes decline sharply in Syria and Iraq: general Coalition air strikes in Syria and Iraq fell sharply last month, a reflection of the collapse of the Islamic State group, a US Air Force general said Tuesday. Brigadier General Andrew Croft, who coordinates the coalition air campaign, said there were 60 to 70 percent fewer air strikes in October than the average for the preceding eight to nine months."That's indicative of the fact that ISIS is collapsing not only as a physical caliphate but also in ownership of land," he told reporters in a teleconference.

How the screenshot ended up in the mix of infrared images posted by the Russian defense ministry is unclear. But the posts for both Twitter and Facebook were deleted (a web cache of the Facebook page is available). Similar messages are still found on the ministry’s Twitter feed. Conflict Intelligence Team, a group of amateur digital sleuths that tracks Russian operations in Syria, concluded other photos in the post were from a June 2016 video of Iraqi airstrikes on ISIS positions in Fallujah.

The images “represent just one more episode of a recurrent pattern of defamation, distortion, distraction that seeks to discredit the U.S. and our successful coalition fight against ISIS in Syria,” Marine Corps Maj. Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement Tuesday, referring to an acronym for Islamic State. Galloway said the episode comes at a strange time following a Saturday joint statement from Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin, which highlighted efforts by the countries to deconflict Syrian airspace in order to avoid collisions and other mishaps.

Russian U.N. Leader Trolls Nikki Haley

  Russian U.N. Leader Trolls Nikki Haley "Russia proves they cannot be trusted or credible as we work towards a political solution in Syria," Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador for the U.N. said.Russian officials trolled the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Twitter after Russia vetoed a U.N. resolution that would have renewed investigations into chemical weapons in Syria on Thursday.

Russia recently cited stills from a video game as proof that the U . S . was working with ISIS before quickly receiving backlash Some Russian citizens were frustrated with their MoD’s tweet, but others simply ridiculed the account for utilizing the game ’s screenshots in their attempts to prove their case.

The defense ministry said terrorists were using deadly chlorine. But the Russia -supported Syrian regime is behind most chemical attacks. The Russian government just made a bullshit claim about chemical weapons in Syria —and used some bullshit graphics from an old video game to help make

“To date, the Syrian regime and Russian Federation have not demonstrated long-term success in ridding large pieces of terrain from ISIS influence, then establishing the conditions necessary to prevent terrorists’ return,” Rankine-Galloway added.

Army Col. Ryan Dillon, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition to defeat Islamic State, told reporters Tuesday the Russian image was “about as accurate as their air campaign,” riffing on accusations Russia has carried out airstrikes without concern for civilian deaths. Rights groups have accused the United States for increasing civilian deaths in Raqqa in the operation to rid Islamic State militants from their de facto capital.

There is a grain of truth to U.S. efforts to allow passage to fleeing ISIS fighters, though it is more complicated than allowing militants to leave.

A Hezbollah-brokered deal in September allowed militants and their families to head from the Lebanon-Syria border toward the Syria-Iraq border. U.S. warplanes cratered the highway to choke blunt their escape and trap them in the open, even releasing Hellfire missiles to strike fighters leaving the convoy to urinate during the two-week standoff.

ISIS victims in Iraq, Christians and Yazidi, desperately need global aid, Vatican says

  ISIS victims in Iraq, Christians and Yazidi, desperately need global aid, Vatican says The religious minorities of Iraq and Syria have recounted horrific accounts of their abuse at the hand of ISIS as the Vatican calls on the global community to address the plight of Christians and Yazidi communities and bring them back from the verge of extinction.The Vatican is using its U.N. position to challenge the world to rescue Iraq’s and Syria’s Christians and Yazidis, victims of horrendous Islamic State persecution and now on the verge of extinction.

Irreconcilable # ISIS terrorists should be killed on the battlefield, not bused across # Syria to the Now the U . S . and its allies make a similar deal and let ISIS leave its besieged position. While the General claimed at that time that no deal was made, later news and the situation today proves the opposite.

“If we have a clean shot against an ISIS fighter, we take that shot,” Rankine-Galloway said.

Ironically, the Russians asked U.S. officials to allow their passage, in which it reluctantly accommodated.
