Russia openly brags about slaughtering 600 people in one strike, smears those killed as "terrorists"





Russian cruise missiles hit ISIS from Mediterranean & Caspian; 600 killed in one strike

The Russian military has launched cruise missiles against Islamic State positions in Syria from both the Mediterranean and Caspian seas, one of which killed over 600 terrorists in the Deir Ex-Zor Province, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has said.

“On November 20, the warships of the Caspian Fleet launched 18 cruise missiles at seven targets in the provinces of Raqqa, Idlib and Aleppo. All targets were hit successfully,” he reported to President Vladimir Putin.

Overall, there are 10 warships taking part in the operation, six of which are in the Mediterranean.

If all 600 of those people are all terrorists then I have bridge that links California to China to sell you.

1. 600 would be 6% of all estimated ISIS fighters

Was that a barracks or training camp? Does ISIS have that many people in one place? Those kinds of numbers should be verifiable.

3. Either Putin's boys just killed a bunch of civilians or they're lying

 

There is no way, no how 600 'terrorists' would be gathered in one spot where they could easily be taken out in one strike. That's not how guerrilla warfare works especially in an active warzone like Syria and I doubt ISIS terrorists would agree to meet with that many people in one spot anyway.

So, either Russia just hit a densely populated area and killed hundreds of civilians or they're outright lying and this is a terrible attempt to act macho.

4. This is probably a blessing for the US and France. Maybe the Daesh will go after the Russians.

And give us a chance to tippy toe out of there real quietly.

5. Is it a toll bridge?

 

That would be very expensive! What is the toll?
