BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 P.M.) – NATO will join the U.S. Coalition against the Islamic State (ISIL) forces in Iraq and Syria, the AFP News Agency reported, Wednesday, citing diplomatic sources.

This move by NATO comes just hours after U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, stated he expects the organization to join this coalition despite some reservations by member-states.

“The NATO (member state) ambassadors decided this evening an action plan on terrorism for the summit. It includes the accession of NATO to the global coalition against IS,” one diplomat said, as quoted by the AFP.

“This means that the AWACS will not just do airspace surveillance but airspace management,” the AFP quoted a diplomat saying, asking not to be identified.

“They are going to coordinate the flights and direct airplanes over Syria and Iraq but only for flights which are not related to bombings.”

NATO leaders will formally endorse the decision at Thursday’s summit, the AFP added.

No… cut bono. Who benefits. Its the timing of it that counts. It sonobody in England or NATO will argue over te sending of mass troops to Syria. Under the guise of fighting Isis whereas in reality to take the border of Iraq Syria and Jordan in order to balkanise Syria.

Then come oil pipes, Ukraine ramps up to create problems for Russian energy market to Europe.
US dollar solidifies as reserve currency
USA continues to have ability to print its own wealth
So on and so fourth

Try being on the outside looking in rather Han being on the inside looking out.

An airforce that target the SAA is a pro-ISIS airforce. Not questionable, this an evidence 🙁

Don’t you remember that for both Iraq and Libya, NATO was summoned by UNSC and that neither Russia nor China vetoed?
Don’t you think that Russia and China knew perfectly what was to come or they were naive at such a point? Seriously?
You seem to not get what NATO is, you should read the Wikipedia artice 😉

I knew that they will be a major anouncement, when I heard the BBC saying that they didn’t know the identity of the attacker,but at the same time claiming that he traveled to Libya and possibly to Syria, HOW DO YOU KNOW WHERE SOMEONE TRAVELED IF YOU DON’T YET KNOW WHO THIS BODY IN PIECES IS?????

they already identified him. they were keeping tabs on him; which begs the question:

How exactly were they keeping tabs if he managed to massacre children?

In the game of brinkmanship the ball is now on Russ hand, it is up to them if they chicken out and let Syria go down or not,it was very much expected that the zionist vermin would confront Russia with NATO using JewSIS as an excuse the moment all other tricks failed!!!

Everybody knows your ghetto state is 90% made of Jews, it’s even why Arafat destroyed it from 1975 to 1995 and that’s why Israel came to rescue and they created Hezbollah.
You can deny as much you want, you’re a f*****g Jew doing contradicting strategy at always accusing your brothers of anything so people think “this guy is not credible, it’s impossible, all his likes are liars. This ishow hasbara works! You’re doing great propaganda for Netanyahu!

There is only one ghetto state, and it is your beloved Israel, all your fairy tales about Hezbollah being created or rescued by Shitsrael is only that, so keep your self hating fairy tales and theories confined to your poor troubled zionist brain.

What, didn’t you knew? Legally speaking, all NATO AWACS belong to Luxembourg! This is only for taxes reasons, LOL!

Alright, seems everybody, including the diplomat, don’t f*****g know about E-3 Sentry features and other AWACS.
It’s not about aircraft surveillance or management at all! Radar r

range is about 650-800km, you don’t need a lot to do such job.
Now they have other functions but range is MUCH shorter, more smth about 200-250km, it’s BATTLEFIELD management! Yeeep, you can see all vehicles on the ground too.
In other terms, it smels the no drive one for IS

we all know that your friends in the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization will follow Tel Aviv orders and attack mainly the Syrian Arab Army and just do a few mock up bombing of ISIS as they have always done before…

LOL, est338lapua, you and your hasbara propagandists play well as false Arabs! You perfectly know that Israel’s capital city is Jerusalem. Only embassies were put in Tel-Aviv to avoid another oil-crisis. But the 2008 on was the one too much. Seriously, l**o! Israel is the USA’s underdog, so is Iran! They’re only here to make stupid Arabs s**t in their pants and buy useless overexpensive weapons in huuuuuge numbers then send petrodollars back to USA! Just lok at the contracts Trump signed! Just little effort for some UK sales too and Saudi money reserves will fall to ZERO! Soon they’ll… Read more »
