    No thread on this?

    This happens right after Obama and Kerry meet with Putin. And people wonder why Putin hates Obama.

    No wonders why Putin loves Trump though.

    Is this the same Putin that early had his Russian troops bombing Syrian rebels that were under the training of the United States? No wonder our nation (except for Trump) is strongly opposed to the Russian strong-armed authoritarian President.

    Can't we take out both? These are the Syrian soldiers who use chemical weapons on their own civilians, and serve one of the cruelest dictators in the world?

    Oh wait, we are in the process of doing that. We are fighting against ISIS there, and also supporting rebels to take out that a-hole dictator Assad, who Trump's buddy Putin supports.

    Yeah nothing bad could happen by taking out Assad. Like with Gaddafi.

    I love how you guys can't go one post without bringing up Trump. This thread has zero to do with him.

    i don't get how technically advanced US army can mistake a target...this had to be on purpose for some reason...

    just like the bombing of the chinese embassy last decade...no way it was due to old maps...i heard its cause they intercepted an US drone and stored it in the embassy....

    but anyway...i just don't know how the US could make a mistake like this...with all the intelligence agencies and satellites...

    That's seriously your response to this? Obama helps ISIS with the most powerful military in the world and you somehow try to deflect onto Trump.

    Just ****ing pathetic.

    The Russians said " the soldiers were trapped by ISIS", but they did not target them or come to rescue ever !
    they must 've been busy killing civilians in the North , oh well , it was well deserved ,I hope to see more of those mistakes

    """""""""Syrian Rebels""""""""

    I remember the last time US troops armed rebels like those they turned out to be ISIS.

    Idk what kind of intel Obama's getting about there but it's really really sounding like it's Iraq WMD-caliber. Idk all the hate on Assad. Have you people actually listened to his interviews?

    Sounds like a genuinely nice guy.

    Sometimes you can't tell the players in this game even with a scorecard.
    The foggiest of the fogs of war is the Syria/ISIS/Kurds/Turks/Rebel conflict.

    Yes. It *could* have been a mistake, but highly highly unlikely, IMHO.
