BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:35 A.M.) – “There has been nobody tougher on Russia than President Donald Trump between building up the military,” US President Donald Trump said during a press conference with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, Wednesday.

“There was no collusion with Russia, other than by the democrats, or as I call them the obstructionists,” Trump added.

Regarding the ongoing war in Syria, Trump said “we had a very severe fight in Syria recently, a month ago between our troops and Russian troops and it’s very sad but many people died in that fight.” The president did not go into more details on the matter.

200+ Russian mercenary’s killed by US special forces, I find that hard to believe, 20 maybe but not 200. That old saying comes to mind, “The first casualty of war is always the truth”, and so far the politicians and the media are doing nothing to disprove the saying. AMN though is not too bad, and though far from perfect, it’s still way better than most of the other trash I have to sift through to find out anything.

There was an investigative article by Der Spiegel. About 8 Russian nationals serving as advisers with a unit that is stationed under an agreement on the East bank of the Euphrates died as collateral casualties when they tried to investigate into an US attack on local tribesmen that were after IS on the East bank.

The whole issue was pushed up by MSM media to influence the Russian election. No more no less.

p.s. No Russian soldiers or special forces but private contractors serving as advisers were hit. The Twitter comedian should read more and tweet less.

Abe has translator’s voice in his earphone. Most likely he’s a bit uncomfortable coz Japanese hate loud mouthing and take that behavior as extremely (unnecessarily, there) aggressive. He’s probably thinking “uneducated barbarian gaijin”.
