Donald Trump sucks up to Russia so much that it has become embarrassing. Then, President Vladimir Putin knocked POTUS’ knees out from under him by putting him in a demeaning place. Check out Trump groveling for Putin’s approval and Russia’s insulting response.
National Security Reporter for CNN Ryan Browne tweeted a Russian defense minister’s spokesperson who said:
‘After Trump repeatedly thanked Russia for allowing the US operation to take place in NW Syria, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman says Baghdadi’s death “has absolutely no operational significance on the situation in Syria or on the actions of the remaining terrorists in Idlib.”‘
In his press conference an hour ago, Trump thanked Russia for its support. According to Major-General Igor Konashenkov he was “not aware” of providing assistance, The Guardian reported:
‘The Russian state-run RIA news agency is quoting the country’s ministry of defence saying it was not aware that they had provided any assistance to the US in the operation that targeted Baghdadi.’
The Major-General repeated “unaware of any alleged assistance:”
”We are unaware of any alleged assistance to the flying of US aviation into the airspace of the Idlib de-escalation zone during this operation.’
Trump gave credit to Russia, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and to a lesser degree the Syrian Kurds who were actually deeply involved, for working with the USA to take out Baghdadi. POTUS added that “one of the most dangerous aspects of the mission was the flight in and the flight out.”
The U.S. Delta Force, the country’s most elite fighters, traveled to Baghdadi’s compound via helicopter and rappelled down a rope so that the copter did not have to touch down. The helicopters took on fire by locals, according to Trump, and returned it:
‘They were terminated immediately.’
The U.S. commander-in-chief said that Russia had been aware of America’s military moving into northwestern Syria. However, Russia had not been given the reason for the move.
ICT Minister of Iran MJ Azari Jahromi also insulted Trump:’
‘Not a big deal! You just killed your creature.’
A senior aide to Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan, Fahrettin Altun said:
‘Turkey was proud to help the United States, our NATO ally, bring a notorious terrorist to justice … We remember today Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s civilian victims and our military heroes, who lost their lives to protect the world from Daesh (Islamic State) terrorists.’
The Turkish aide continued, pointing out that his country had been “a bulwark against terrorism:”
‘Turkey, which has been a bulwark against terrorism, will continue to work closely with the United States and others to combat terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. It is time to join forces and defeat all terrorist groups operating in the region without further delay.’
The Trump-like Prime Minister of Great Britain Boris Johnson called Baghdadi’s death “an important moment” in the fight against terrorism:
‘The death of Baghdadi is an important moment in our fight against terror but the battle against the evil of Daesh is not yet over. We will work with our coalition partners to bring an end to the murderous, barbaric activities of Daesh once and for all.’
