إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The Russian military warned Friday that any attempt by Syrian rebels to attack a Russian military base at the Syrian port of Tartus would be “rebuffed immediately.”

"If the armed Syrian opposition ventures to implement their threat and to attack the Russian naval supplies and maintenance facility, Russia has ample capabilities in the region now to provide an adequate response. We won't recommend hotheads in the Syrian opposition doing that," a source in the Russian General Staff told the Interfax news agency.

"The Syrian side, too, has taken corresponding measures to enhance the naval supplies and maintenance base's protection and defense," he said.

I demand that Russia leave the Syrian territory. because russia has clearly shown that they are against the Syrian people. Russia is the enemy of the Syrian people
as long as Mr. Putin or anyone else in his party in power in Russia they should stay away from the Syrian territory

What min-canada, so you and your corrupt, psyco zionist mates can rape children, murder women and torture and cut to pieces everyone NATO disagrees with. Then sell their body part, destroy their culture and give them crapdonalds and Choka Kola while stealing all the resources and sending their ancient artifacts to tel aviv?

"July 309, 2012 "Information Clearing House" -- Anyone really paying attention to US policy in the Middle East these past several months must be wondering whether Washington has gone insane. US foreign policy under the triple threat of Susan Rice, Samantha Power, and Hillary Clinton has gone to openly supporting what the German intelligence services (echoed in several prominent and panicked mainstream German media sources) have found to be predominantly al-Qaeda-backed terrorist attacks inside Syria. Americans can be forgiven for scratching their heads at the reality that the United States government is actively supporting in Syria what it has spent the last eleven years fighting just a few thousand miles away in Afghanistan.

As RT so poignantly puts it: ‘America’s Syrian friends and Afghan foes are same people"
