Russia has delivered a behind-the-scenes threat to retaliate if airstrikes carried out by the U.S. or its allies target the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Middle Eastern security officials told WND.
The security officials said Russia complained Sunday in quiet talks with United Nations representatives that the Obama administrations current aerial campaign against Islamic State fighters in Syria is a violation of international agreements regarding control of Syrian airspace.

Bombing Assad would be pretty stupid, as long as the Syrian Army loyal to him and the Shabiha militia are the main opposition force on the ground to the ISIS in Syria.
Rut roh. I have NO confidence that the persons in control at the White House will read this situation correctly and respond intelligently...without toothless bluster and short-sighted error. Ronnie: we need you.
Here is a clip of her admitting that the real purpose of the fight against ISIS is to overthrow the Al-Assad regime and the Syrian government.
They are going to start WWIII
Just in time for the elections right???
To whom will the prez delegate the blame??
Oh...yeah. George Bush.
Putins former aide: Russia has been preparing for global war since 2003
According to Illarionov, Russia has been preparing for a major war at least since 2003 and for a confrontation with Ukraine and capture of Crimea, since 2004, when the Orange Revolution started in Kiev.
Another contingency plan was drafted for 2010, in case Yulia Tymoshenko had won presidential election and not Moscow-backed Viktor Yanukovych. One more potential date for a war was chosen in 2015, according to Illarionov, when Ukraine would hold a presidential election. However, the Maidan happened sooner.
According to Illarionov, Putin himself mentioned plans in Ukraine that same year in a NATO summit in Bucharest - he said that Ukraine was not a real nation, but a state that took over lands that historically belonged to Russia as well as Hungary, Poland and Romania.
The current Ukrainian-Russian war, Illarionov says, began on 27 July this year, when Putin started talking about the Russian world during a ceremony to mark an anniversary of the baptism of Slavic peoples.
According to the former presidential adviser, Russian laws essentially define four categories of Russians: ethnic Russians, irrespective of whether they reside in or outside Russia; Russian-speakers, irrespective of their nationality; all former citizens of the Soviet Union and their offspring living in the territories formerly covered by the USSR; and former citizens of the Russian Empire (pre-1917) and their offspring living in the territories once covered by the Russian Empire.
Such a legal base allows the Russian army to protect all the Russians listed in the law. Therefore, for the Russian side, such actions of the Russian army beyond Russian borders might seem completely legitimate, Illarionov says.
He adds that Putin thinks of the current confrontation not as world war three - since that was the Cold War - but as world war four.
Here is the quote, Samantha Powers,
“But, may I add, the training also will service these troops in the same struggle that they’ve been in since the beginning of this conflict against the Assad regime.”
DITTOS. . . .
Putin’s such a drama queen. I think he might be gay.
The Whitey Hut can always say it’s to battle Calamity Change....or for Ferguson.

"The Three Sisters of Imbecility" poised to embarrass the USA---a-g-a-I-n.
I guess it’s the CIA’s problem for underestimating Russia?
Yeah I loved how he threw the whole intelligence and defense community under the bus - because it wasn’t like he wasn’t pushing his own agenda both in the Middle East and elsewhere. I am sure we will later find out he was having reports edited to suit his own intentions.
I can only see this heading downhill as Obama is not one to admit he was wrong. Wanting to bomb Assad will bring Iran, Turkey and maybe even Russia into the war - Obama is about to bring us to the brink and I am not even sure he knows it!
Obama IS pretty stupid.
Throwing whole intelligence and defense community under the bus has been in the back of my mind and I will apologize to those patriots working behind the scenes waiting for their chains to be snapped. Since we know the DOD has been purged of many patriots, we have to assume the CIA and FBI have also. Are their lives in danger for being patriots?
You left out Jarrett and you probably could throw in the Wookie, into your list, for good measure.
Start WWIII, with who?
You think that the 142 million Russians and their unimpressive military want to fight the world with their poorly trained and equipped 766,000 man military while trying to hold together their fractured nation, and cover their Eastern borders?
