U.S.-led forces strike Syrian troops, prompting emergency U.N. meeting

U.S.-led coalition air strikes reportedly killed dozens of Syrian soldiers on Saturday, endangering a U.S.-Russian brokered ceasefire and prompting an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting as tensions between Moscow and Washington escalated.

The United States military said the coalition stopped the attacks against what it had believed to be Islamic State positions in northeast Syria after Russia informed it that Syrian military personnel and vehicles may have been hit.

The United States relayed its “regret” through the Russian government for what it described as the unintentional loss of life of Syrian forces in the strike, a senior Obama administration official said in an emailed statement.

Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said in an emailed statement that Russian officials did not voice concerns earlier on Saturday when informed that coalition aircraft would be operating in the strike area.

The 15-member Security Council met on Saturday night after Russia demanded an emergency session to discuss the incident and accused the United States of jeopardizing the Syria deal.

    These tools in Washington think, or want us to think, that Russia is the enemy. When we all know it’s the scumbags in Iran whom Washington has given nuclear access too. The Nation of Islam is the enemy of the world people. As are the knuckleheads in D.C. They could not care less for the citizens of this Country. Unfortunately, we made them what they have become. How stupid do they think we are?

      You don’t want to know. But, my guess would be something lower than a rock.

    The problem is the U.S. has no leadership, and Russia knows our military has been cut to the bone, and we’re no longer a threat, and the UN needs to just shut up and go away.
