Indeed, for both terrorists and political parties. No one would recognize the new Al Qaeda or the new GOP. Neither has the same values or work ethic.

There are enough mental gymnastics going on in this thread with regard to radical islamofascist to start a traveling three ring circus.

Youre right- they have changed names but never changed their dogma. As much as I want them to die, they are consistent.

Thats going to make procreation something of a challenge.

 

Russia admits it has ground forces in Idlib.

https://www.middleea...hting-in-idlib/

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has acknowledged for the first time the presence of Russian military fighting alongside Syrian regime forces in the Idlib assault, confirming numerous earlier reports.

During a press conference he held following a meeting with Ghana’s Foreign Minister Shirley Botchway yesterday, Lavrov confirmed that “There are Russian soldiers on the ground in the Syrian province of Idlib,” stating that Russia would respond to any attack on its soldiers in Syria.

The acknowledgment by Russia of its direct military presence on the ground in the province is the first which has been made following months of speculation and reports of the troops’ presence over the past month, particularly after Syrian opposition forces sighted the deployment of Russian troops in July.

While Russia has supported the regime throughout the eight-year conflict and provided aerial support and intelligence in order to keep President Bashar Al-Assad in power, it did not previously involve itself in fighting on the ground until last month. The move came after the regime’s all-out land and air assault on Idlib – the last major opposition stronghold in the country – was making slow progress and was constantly impeded by the opposition forces.

JPost has more information on the attacks, which apparently were aimed at disrupting the land route through which Iran supplies its Lebanon and Syria based jihadists.

Interesting titbit:

But the alleged Israeli strikes in Iraq – which were reportedly carried out with the approval of Russia and the United States if this is correct – could get complicated, as US forces are deployed in the country working side-by-side by Iraqi troops who themselves are working with the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF).

Rus forces presence and active operations was not only acknowledged but advertised with TV documentaries, President personally awarding decorations and so on.  Seems like journalists need watching Rus TV more closely

Since when approval of Russia is needed to bomb targets in Iraq?

More like both the US and Russia were advised as to what was taking place, mainly so they don't fire on each other and so they can brief up to the top.

This is a better read on the subject.
Many claims were made, for example that it was unmanned aircraft, or that confirmation was required, or that the aircraft came from Azerbaijan, or that it was actually an ISIS ground operation, and whatnot.

But neither is confirmed or denied. So take every claim with a grain of pepper.
