Terrorists Shoot Down Russian Planes With U.S. TOW Missiles After McCain Calls For It

mccain misslesBy Brandon Turbeville

In three and a half decades, the United States has come full circle in terms of its publicly stated strategy overseas. From the late 1970s when the U.S. armed the Mujihadeen “rebels” to draw in and fight the Soviets in Afghanistan to 2016 when the U.S. has given Syrian “rebels” (aka moderate terrorists) TOW missiles to shoot down Russian aircraft over Syria, the U.S. and Russia are engaged in a proxy war – at least this time entirely at the impetus of the U.S. and its allies – where the people of a target nation pay the ultimate price.

Recently, a Russian MI-8 helicopter was shot down over Syria in the Idlib region. The helicopter and its crew were on a humanitarian mission even according to the pro-terrorist Syrian Observatory For Human Rights. Although Western outlets and “think tanks” are attempting to claim that the helicopter was on a combat mission, no one outside of NATO countries believes this and the evidence produced by these pro-war analysts is scant to say the least.

Regardless, it was a U.S. missile that brought down the helicopter, a TOW missile that was provided to the terrorists by the U.S. itself. As the Japan Times wrote,

Two Russian airmen killed in Syria on Friday were shot down with American weaponry, the Interfax news agency said Sunday, quoting a Russian military source.

It said insurgents from the Islamic State group hit the airmen’s Mi-25 assault helicopter with a U.S.-made TOW heavy anti-tank missile, a weapon that uses guidance from a ground station.

These TOW missiles were supposed to be provided only to “moderate terrorists” who had been vetted by the U.S. State Department and kept out of the hands of extremists. However, as I and the New York Times have reported since the very beginning of the crisis that there never was anything resembling a moderate fighting in Syria. Indeed, the vetting process has revealed that the United States has not only armed but given TOW missiles to groups that are as bad if not worse than ISIS itself. For instance, the terrorist group Nour al-Din al-Zanghi (Zenki) that recently beheaded a child on camera was actually considered a “moderate vetted” group.

John McCain, however, is presumably pleased at the fact that his dream of the ’80s is being repeated. Remember, it was McCain who told FOX News that “I might do what we did in Afghanistan many years ago, to give those guys the ability to shoot down those planes. That equipment is available” When asked who he meant to give the missiles to, he said, “The Free Syrian Army, just like the Afghans shot down the Russian…”

McCain, of course, has long been a vocal supporter of terrorism in Syria, Libya, and beyond. He has supported virtually every war to cross his path during his tenure as Senator and has actively covered up and stonewalled evidence that pointed to the possibility that American prisoners of war were still in Vietnam long after the war was over.

Nevertheless, the United States finds itself now publicly admitting to funding terrorists and terrorism as well as attempting to represent these terrorists as freedom fighters. The major difference this time around is twofold: First, the alternative media has provided a significant roadblock to the impunity with which the U.S. government has acted in Syria by deconstructing and competing with the State Department’s narratives. Second, Russia is no longer an empire in decline. It is a superpower whose presence is rising. This time, it is the United States that is in decline.

For this and a number of other reasons, the United States must abandon foolish policies of empire and the advice of fools like John McCain.

    McCain is not so much a fool – he is a madman. Insane. His brain, not that he was ever greatly endowed with brain, has gone, kaput, finito, bye bye brain.
    He should be in an institution.
    Yet the country chooses to FOLLOW him? Into madness?

  2. McCain should be in prison somewhere, anywhere..

    • Yes he does, never to see the light of day. McCain killed 134 sailors and injured 161 others when he tried to wet start his planes engine knowing that was dangerous. Mccain also gave the the Vietcong vital information as a pow, yet they lied to us all making him appear to be hero, he is NOT. His father was a navy admiral which is why he got away with both murder or at least 134 counts of manslaughter, 161 counts of reckless endangerment and high treason. This man is no hero! The u.s. government passed laws to try and hide his treasonous acts, but it’s out there if you look hard enough.

      • His father was also involved in the cover-up of the jew-Peral Harbor, The Zionist attack on the USS LIBERTY, and the death of 34 sailors, and the wounding of 174. The USS LIBERTY was an “unarmed”, and clearly marked, electronic intelligence ship in international waters off of Egypt during the 1967 land grab.

        • What about the 4 deck guns? Phil Pratt talks about how those positions were destroyed right after the radio towers were killed.

        • Thank you for letting me know that. I remember researching the subject some time ago, but didn’t know mccains father was involved so deeply. I will certainly refresh on that specific subject.

    McCainibal – are we surprised?

    ZioNazi racist and fascist sociopath NWO – their EVIL god is LUCIFER! Snowden revealed that IS/ISIS was actually formed by MOSSAD/CIA; here it is in – French Report ISIL Leader Mossad Agent By GPD on August 4, 2014! Thanks to the brave heroes, Snowden (and the tortured Private Manning – for exposing US/UK ZioNazi regimes’ WAR CRIMES)!

    Why is Russia so hated by the ZioNazis – not just about its political power but also because Russia is the most powerful ancient Catholic nation in the world right now!

    Catholicism and Islam are in grave DANGER, from LUCIFERIAN ZioNazis, towards their Lucifer=God/Evil=Good NWO!

    It was Rothch*ld-led Luciferians that marched to destroy, in West/Europe, the Catholic Church and mass murdering in Catholic Holocaust of millions of Catholics (targeting especially Catholic Kings, Queens, and their whole generation and nobles) since the Luciferian Reformation in the Holy Roman
    Empire across Europe, then into the so-called French Revolution , followed by the Irish Hunger Genocide (5 million Catholics Irish died in the genocidal Irish Hunger due to being starved by the Zio Luciferians) during Zio-worshipping Victoria (she knighted the Rothsch*ld in Britain). They then marched on towards Russia in the Rothsch*ld-created Bolshevik Revolution that saw millions of Russian Catholics tragically mass murdered including the whole family and generation of Tsar Nicholas II, his nobles and priests/nuns (that’s why Russia is still being targeted now due to strong revival of the Catholic Church after the fall of Communism), and the most recent Catholic Genocide in WW2 by anti-Catholic ZioNazis!

      The ZioNazi’s goal is to achieve the Luciferian NWO, where Evil supposedly equals to Good and Lucifer supposedly equals to God -thus is why Catholicism and Islam are this Luciferians’greatest enemies! Because any religion or any moral values, especially if anti-abortion/homosexuality/free sex-pornography/bestiality/cannibalism etc.are simply not acceptable to these Luciferians!

        The Roman Catholic Church and Islam were created by the evil entity, and so was Judaism.

      Russia is Eastern Orthodox, not Catholic. Why don’t you look up who Patriarch Kirill is?

        ZioNazi’s propaganda is indeed a joke!

        Both Roman Catholic Church and Orthodox (Catholic) Church are Catholic! The formal divison under the “Great Schism” in 1054 between Orthodox East and Latin West is due the role of the papacy, and the manner in which doctrine is to be interpreted.Here read this and educate yourself, at – What on Earth is the Orthodox Church? ,by Ancient Faith Press.

          So by your logic Shia and Sunni Moslems are the same because they are both Islamic? Obviously the Shia and Sunnis don’t agree with that statement, because they have been killing each other for centuries, just as Orthocox and Catholic ‘christians’ have been doing. Just because they have roots in the same religious cult does not mean they are the same religions!! Are you one of those indoctrinated Moslem people who worship the evil entity too, along with the other monotheistic religious cults who worship “king daddy in the sky” – which is really the evil entity…

          • noor aza othman | August 7, 2016 at 12:06 pm |

            Jeez, your evil entity that you worship – is it LUCIF*R?! Get off your high horse, you religion-hating fanatic!

            No, Shiahs and Sunnis don’t kill each other -. only when instigated by ZioNazi agents, posing as ‘Muslims’; just like that IS/IS monster where Snowden revealed that IS/ISIS was actually formed by MOSSAD/CIA; here it is in- French Report ISIL Leader Mossad Agent By GPD on August 4, 2014!

    • 50 000 000 Serbs (called also Sorbs, Wends, Slaws, Servs…) have been killed in second Crusade organised by Vatican ! Serbs lived in today’s Germany before they were all killed by Jesuits and Germans who hide the real history and invent thousend names for Serbs..
      In WWI one third of all Serbs were killed in the Balkans – Jesuits started the war for to kill Serbs.
      In WWII almost all Serbs from Bosnia were killed by Vatican priests.
      In 1995 Croatia expulsed all Serbs with Vatica help
      No media have reported on this genocide ¨!

        From the Crusader days, the Roman CatholicChurch were much infiltrated by maximum wealth-obsessed Cabala/Baphomet-worshipping-Knights Templar, whose heritage was carried on by
        the Rothschild empire, which then infiltrated the Freemason and founded the Illuminati through Jesuit-infiltrator Weishaupt . Here, educate yourself – THE DARK HISTORY OF THE TEMPLARS, CHAPTER I.

        • … and 30 000 000 Russians have been killed in WWII that was initiated by Vatican’s Jesuits too ! Western satanists work on systematic killing of Slaws – Slaws who don’t want to convert to satanic catholicism.
          Slaws have much higher morality and have never used slavery for wealth creation – they have natural feeling of social justice! Nikola Tesla, a Serb, a Slaw, wanted to give the energy for FREE to all people of the world! It’s a Slavonic way of life that Western satanists want to eliminate.
          With Vatican’s gold 7 billion people could turn our planet into a FREE GARDEN where FREE food, shelter, water, space… could create wealth & peace to all !

          • noor aza othman | August 7, 2016 at 12:17 pm |

            Jeez, what about all those BILLIONS that the LUCIFERIAN ZioNazi looted through all their endless GENOCIDE until today, that include mass murder, rape, torture and robbery in the OIL/GAS-RICH ‘Third ‘/Muslim World? ZioNazi LUCIFERIANS always love LIES!

    McCain has always been a waste of space. Too many people have died paying for his screw-ups. The latest victims are again our military and our native American Indians. Somebody vote this POS out of office.

  7. Helicopter must have almost stationary for a TOW to hit it.

  8. THIS IS WHY THAT ALHEIMIC PSYCHOPATH NEEDS TO BE WATERBOARDED.

  9. Our so called leaders are driving us all straight into a unjustified and hellacious war. The end is certainly nigh, get right with Christ if you truly know what’s good for you. God bless and may he have mercy!

  10. His own shipmates shot him down over North Vietnam, to bad they didn’t finish the job.

  11. Big antiwar talk. Is anyone challenging the weaponeers and soldiers here in the USA?
    I didn’t think so.

  12. My comment has been moderated by Activist Post again. There was no need for this making me feel that AP is just another CIA front to prevent freedom of speech. No one ever gets to know who is doing the monitoring,

  13. McCain should be placed in a home where he poses no harm to himself or others.

            Here, educate yoursdelf abut this hidden truths!

            Luciferian Weishaupt infiltrated the Jesuit (the most loyal guardians of
            the Church); because by weakening and destroying ruthlessly, the Jesuits allover the Europe, most cunningly paved the way to instigate the so-called FrenchRevolution and later on the so-called Bolshevik Revolution – in order todestroy both the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox (Catholic) Church,ultimately. See – THE DARK HISTORY OF THE TEMPLARS, CHAPTER I.

          • Really? Jesuits are evil by default, no matter the Illuminati… As is the catholic.
            Use the propaganda on those who murdered millions in the “name” of Christ and salvation.
            And start with WWII and catholic ustashe, and go backwards.
