BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The U.S. State Department said on Tuesday that they hope the Russian Federation did not deliver the S-300 systems to Syria because if they did, it would be a “serious escalation.”

“I cannot confirm that that is accurate. I hope that they did not, that would be a serious escalation and concern,” Nauert said when asked about the administration’s reaction to reports Russia had sent S-300 systems to Syria.

The Russian Ministry of Defense announced on Tuesday evening that they shipped the S-300 missile defense system to the Syrian military.

Video footage and photos from the Latakia Governorate last night confirmed the Russian government’s delivery of the S-300 system to the Syrian military.

With the S-300 in their arsenal, the Syrian military now boasts a much stronger air defense system than ever before.

” US warns of ‘serious escalation’ if Russia delivered S-300 systems to Syria ”

When we analyse this joint US/Israeli ‘double speak ‘ , it translates to :-

‘US/Israel warns of serious escalation if Russia delivered S-300 systems to Syria that will be used to deter US Coalition of Terror attacks on the Syrian people and her allies ‘.

🙂 🙂 🙂

Ah, ISIS are allies to the Syrian people?
And I don’t think Syrian secularism is well seen by religious fanatics like Khamenei and Nasrallah while Lebanonising+sectarianising both Syria and Iraq is on their table for very very long for geopolitical purposes.
The goal of Islam is unchanged for 1,400 years : NWO, and with a worst than Nazism totalitarian ideology.

You choose to ignore the fact that it was the Syrian army who cleared and defeated ISIS and other Wahabi terrorists who were happily interacting with Israel all along the borders with Israel Daeshbag.

He is definitely mistaken about the origin of IS so what else?

He is right that some in the Muslim Ummah have Fascist dreams.

Newsflash Ziobag. Western Imperialists (together with Zionists, Wahhabis and their proxies and mercenaries) are the ones who are bombing, killing and occupying all around the world.

US threatens not warns. SS 300 was postponed out of “friendship” and IDF blew it.

The escalation is that SAA can strike back if provoked by IDF.

p.s. Dumb US t*t.
