yes but not always mainstream media and where it is I tend to agree with the Iranians that make a case for them to have the right to possess nuclear weapons.

im not claiming to be more Iranian than you. nor am I in full support of the regime either. your folks may be dissidents in exile I get that. But let there be a revolution on Iranian terms not on no western daemon terms. Such terms are ONLY and always recipes for disaster. Iran should not have nuclear weapons because Iranians say so not because the US says so. That doesn't mean a democratic choice either.

Russian plane taken down by Syria.

Russia claims, Israel pilots done it on purpose to stir some shit.

US claims, Syrians took it down by accident.

both correct.

Erdogan announced a deal with Putin yesterday

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/09/erdogan-putin-agree-de-militarised-zone-syria-idlib-180917142241897.html

Where France and US were waiting for Syria to attack idlib and have reason to bomb them like last time weather it be because of chemical weapons or huge civilian casualties in idlib.... but now as that wont happen US backed out...

France and Israel decided to bomb Assad in the aftermath while gazes were elsewhere....

What seems most likely coming seeing as US outright denied being involved but did use the words shot down... is

Quote

"The Israeli pilots were using the Russian aircraft as a shield and pushed it into the line of fire of the Syrian defence," ministry spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement on Tuesday.

Russia said it would make an "appropriate response" to Israel.

The Russian military said the Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft was hit 35 km off the Syrian coast as it was returning to its home base nearby.

considering Syria uses antique S200 defense system in that area.

Dont think anything major will happen tho as russia and israel have a very strong relationship...

It's amazing that Syria war has been going on for this long.

Are all those minor factions still fighting or is it just the major guys battling now?

@Admin.

Graphics from AJLabs - yeah they definitely haven't got a horse in the race. I would be highly critical of anything coming from Al Jazeera or any Doha based think-tanks when it comes to this conflict. Greasy Qataris.

This has been a fairly open proxy war since Russia's intervention in the conflict. All the 'rebel' groups have had major support from Gulf states and the west.

I had it in my clipboard. Post the livemap link if anything, don't give AJ any more credit.

I wasn't being being racist (insert the term dirty/snakey/slimey/slippery and it fits) and Qatar is still home to enough thinktanks to still have a horse in the race. Regardless of whether their material support has stopped - Qatar is a media/propaganda hub.

lol disses al jazeera then posts RT

You clearly lack the ability to assess sources.

If I had posted a Haaretz video saying that Syria (an enemy) had downed a Russian (enemy) jet it would have more likely been biased.

The fact that RT have admitted that Syria (an ally) downed their own plane means I can trust the story.

You're creating an argument.

This isn't AJ vs RT.

This isn't 'gang shit'.

I don't need third-party websites to evaluate sources and neither should you. I'm obviously aware of the RT angle but you'll find RT's reporting has been so successful as they've offered a degree of balance over Syria (against the media weight of America/Europe/Arab channels all toeing the same line) that is largely unmatched. Crosstalk is a great example.

I assess bias on a case-by-case basis, and in this case there isn't much room for Russia to lie about anything.

Are you alleging that Israel shot down the jet, which is what your analogy implies?
