“As a precaution measure, Australian Armed Forces temporarily halt airstrikes in Syria,” official statement by the DoD says.

Australia: OUT.
Belgium: OUT.
Qatar (+ proxies): OUT.
[“Out” of brainless US actions, that is]

Turkey: ON CHECK
Jordan: IN TALKS

Russia’s allies that defected: NONE.

So much for Putin’s “ineffectiveness”.

It will take some time to extinguish ISIS firstly , but in the end the time will come for the US to come out of Syria , as they are going to be left without any pretexts. The Kurds , who invested in an alliance with the US as a proxy army on foreign land , to do the US’ bidding , are going to be left out in the cold , once more in their history. But I hope the Russian diplomacy is going to find a cure for the Kurdish problem.

the russians did promise to recognize the kurds and the Syrian government promised more autonomy if they fight ISIS. hell, look at any list of battle orders on the Kurds on wikipedia and you can see that the Russians are assisting the Kurds.

There is no Kurdish problem in Syria, except that they’ve been treated as under-citizens for 52 years. It’ll become a problem only if Assad makes it a problem and I don’t think that once Qaeda/IS liquidated, he’ll be willing to, this time, ending with a REAL civil war in an area where there’ll be NO public support, especially as PYD DOESN’T reclaims independence. Now, a federal country doesn’t works bad at all in Swiss or Germany. And… I wouldn’t bet that Putin would support the idea to pound the Kurds into submission and recreate another typical Mid-East dictatorship. I don’t… Read more »

The problem is that the Kurds have betrayed Syria for the US. “under-citizens for 52 years” You do not have a problem when the Zionist treat Palestinians as less worthy in PALESTINE? When you talk about a “dictatorship” the Syrians should tell you to shut up since your country is an enemy of Syria since Syrias independence from the Ottomans.
And do not forget that the Kurds do not have a majority in most parts of northern Syria.

We are not discussing Palestine. The Kurds have so far not betrayed Syria. But Syria has betrayed them for 52 years.

You do not need a majority to get civil rights and this includes the right to speak Your own language. The Assyrians and the Kurds are the original inhabitants of the North not the Turkmens and the Arabs.
Syria is a creation of of the Entente/Colonial powers.

It seems that US Coalition members ( of de fact Terror Supporters ) are not quite so keen now that the Turkey Shoot is not risk free anymore. Its a bugger when the Russian Gamekeeper steps in to prevent the Beater’s (SAA) getting shot at whilst flushing out ISIS and other US enabled terror gangs .

Well, it seem that RAAF is not wanting to be used as a Guinea Pig for a first combat test of S-400?
They (US) may be willing to record if the system really works, envelope of frequencies, etc…
They’ve retired some QF-4 recently, these are old F-4 Phantom converted as drone-targets but some US partners may be asking themselves if they are not seeking to have one of the partners shot at for real.
