    Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, that's more of an alphabet soup name to me. With a Fulbright fellowship, George Washington University, Harvard and NATO background, she must be CIA and must've been handpicked for her cranial configuration (=fascist).

    You don`t want to know what her last name reminds in Croatian slang.....

    Although i highly doubt she is CIA asset , she`s not particularly bright. She is typical East-European vassal politician.

    One of those diplomatic 'put up or shut up moments'

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – During a UN Security Council meeting on the Middle East, US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power made a reference to an analysis by the news agency Reuters of Russian Defense Ministry data that found that in 80 percent of cases Russia's airstrikes in Syria targeted areas not controlled by Islamic State (ISIL) militants.

    "[The United States] complain that we do the wrong thing without telling…what in their view would be the right thing to do, and quoting various agencies about, you know, the impact [of] what is going on, I think it’s rather strange," Churkin told journalists.

    On September 30, Russia launched precision airstrikes against ISIL targets in Syria following a request from Syrian President Bashar Assad. Russia, Iraq, Iran and Syria, created the Baghdad Information Center in late September to coordinate military actions against ISIL. According to Churkin, the United States refused Russia's request to provide Moscow with information about ISIL targets in Syria.

    "We are doing it transparently, we’re trying to do it responsibly, I have not heard any confirmed reports on civilian casualties," Churkin said. "You know what their [US] military are saying. When there are reports of casualties, they say, 'we cannot confirm that.'"

    Since the beginning of the air campaign in Syria, the Russian Aerospace Forces have reportedly carried out some 830 strikes, killing several hundred militants and destroying dozens of command centers, and depots used by the terrorists. According to the Russian General Staff, the militants have begun to retreat due to the Russian aerial campaign, having lost much of their weaponry and equipment on the contact line with Syrian troops. Russian intelligence drones have increased sorties to track events.

    Another 'WTF do we do now moment' in the Pentagon as the RuAF controllers head to Amman. You have to hand it to Russian diplomacy atm.

    VIENNA (Sputnik) – Russia and Jordan have agreed to coordinate military activity in the fight against the Islamic State in Syria through a center to be created in Amman, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Friday. “The military personnel from both countries will coordinate their activities in Jordan’s capital of Amman,” Lavrov told journalists.

    Lavrov also said Russia backs Jordan’s participation in settling the crisis in Syria. “And while Russia is participating in efforts to create the conditions of such a [crisis settlement] process it backs Jordan’s participation in this,” Lavrov added.

    Twisted Evil

    Baghdad Authorizes Russia to Strike ISIS in Iraq

    Iraq finally green lights Russian strikes on ISIS convoys coming from Syria

    http://russia-insider.com/en/military/iraqi-government-authorizes-russia-strike-isis-iraq/ri10701


    Open season on ISIS convoys in Iraq

    The Iraqi government authorized Russia to target Daesh convoys coming from Syria, a senior Iraqi official said.

    The authorization for Russia to target Daesh inside Iraq comes amid security coordination between Iraq, Russia, Iran and Syria.

    Hakem al-Zamli, chief of the Iraqi parliament’s security and defense committee, told Anadolu Agency on Friday that the measure contributed to weakening Daesh by cutting off its supply routes.

    Russia, an ally of the Assad regime, began carrying out airstrikes in Syria on Sept. 30. According to the Kremlin, the strikes are aimed at weakening the Daesh militant group, an avowed enemy of the regime.

    Turkey and several western countries, however, accuse Russia of targeting moderate groups in Syria opposed to Assad, many of which enjoy the support of Ankara and Washington.

    Iraq has been gripped by a security vacuum since June 2014 when Daesh stormed the northern city of Mosul and declared a self-styled caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria.

    Not too long ago, Jordan was sending in CIA backed "moderate terrorists" to open a southern front. Now they are opening a center in Jordan, to coordinate with the Russians. USA CIA position continues to crumble?


    Russia, Jordan to coordinate actions on Syria via Amman-based center


    In case you don't know : There's massive US presence over the border in Jordan


    Jordan has always been a fence sitter. More pro west though. Queen Noor is an American who married Hussein, this guy's father. Her old man was a Pan Am exec and had been an advisor to Truman and Kennedy. I wouldn't trust him.

    Don't worry about reading the entire agitprop article, I just highlighted the most important part:

    Russian military intervention and aid to Syria #3 - Page 31 CR_kToFVAAI9aR1

    “Probably 60 to 80 percent of the arms that America shoveled in have gone to al-Qaida and its affiliates,” said Joshua Landis, a Syria expert at the University of Oklahoma.
