Let me see if I can get this straight. U.S. troops engaging in Syria demonstrates that Trump is operating against Russian interests. However, in other discussions when Trump is mentioned a common theme heard is that Trump and his staff are really Russian lapdogs and/or basically working for the SVR RF.Interesting!

The US invades yet another country, illegally and against international law, to overturn another democratically-elected government.
wasn't he accused of war crimes by the UN?
OPCW report: rebels used chemical weapons – not AssadThe Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has confirmed the traces of the sarin gas used in Syria are not linked with the Syrian government’s former stockpile of chemical weapons. The report corroborates the Syrian government’s assertions that the faction responsible for the chemical attack, as well as 11 other instances of chemical weapons use, was the Syrian opposition. The report also substantiates last month’s claims from Ahmed al-Gaddafi al-Qahsi, cousin of Muammar Gaddafi, who said that the chemical weapons used in the incident had been stolen from Libya and later smuggled into Syria via Turkey by militants. https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/assad-never-used-chemical-weapons-islamist-rebels-did/
As for "democratically elected". You know full well the circumstances in which these elections take place under.
DAMASCUS, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Observers at the presidential elections in Syria are unanimous that the expression of people's will was valid and the polls passed in a democratic and positive atmosphere.http://tass.com/world/734657
LONDON -- Syria's planned presidential election next month is a "farce," and the U.S. and its partners are prepared to quickly redouble efforts to support opposition forces in the county, Secretary of State John Kerry saidhttp://www.cbsnews.com/news/john-kerry-syrian-president-election-a-farce/
Speaking of international law,
That wasn't what I was even getting at when I mentioned international law.
Aurata you haven't lost people! Outside of America we get a better chance to hear about the points you make. Your observations will "lose people" inside of that countries daily narrative. Quote from: steviegerro on March 22, 2017, 11:47:38 AMThat wasn't what I was even getting at when I mentioned international law. lol
Aurata, this is how you lose people. A lot of what you say about both Russia and the USA is valid, but you don't need to be ridiculously partisan about it. Assad's Syria was not an open, democratic society. The elections bear little resemblance to anything fair and open. It's basically unimaginable for any politician to win a REAL, open and fairly contested and counted election with those kind of percentages, and you're smart enough to know as much.
Russia has a naval port in Syria. That's all that Putin or Comrade Aurata care about.
US Troops are targeting ISIS elements, not the Assad regime
‘Americans Are On Our Side’: Al-Nusra Commander Says US Arming Jihadists Via Third CountriesUS weapons are being delivered to Jabhat Al-Nusra by governments that Washington supports, a militant commander told the German media, adding that American instructors were in Syria to teach how to use the new equipment.“Yes, the US supports the opposition [in Syria], but not directly. They support the countries that support us. But we are not yet satisfied with this support,” Jabhat al-Nusra unit commander Abu Al Ezz said in an interview with Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger newspaper from the devastated Syrian city of Aleppo.“The fight is difficult. The regime is strong and gets support from Russia,” he explained.Al Ezz said that Jabhat Al-Nusra “won battles thanks to TOW rockets. Due to these rockets, we reached a balance with the regime. Our tanks came from Libya via Turkey, joined by the [BM-21] multiple rocket launchers,” he said.The government forces have an advantage because of aircraft and missile launchers, but “we have the American-made TOW missiles, and the situation in some areas is under control,” Al Ezz added.When asked if the TOW missiles were initially intended for Jabhat Al-Nusra or if the group obtained them from the moderate Free Syrian Army, the jihadist clarified:“No, the missiles were given to us directly.”He also said that when Jabhat Al-Nusra was “besieged, we had officers from Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Israel and America here… Experts in the use of satellites, rockets, reconnaissance and thermal security cameras.”The journalist asked specifically if the US instructors were really present among the jihadists’ ranks and Al Ezz replied: “The Americans are on our side.”http://www.globalresearch.ca/americans-are-on-our-side-al-nusra-commander-says-us-arming-jihadists-via-3rd-countries/5580725
Trump has proposed that the US and Russia work together to fight ISIS. Ergo, still a Russian stooge.
I asked a question about the UN, all it takes is an answer.
