The London Daily Mail & What Does It Mean
Prior to launching combat operations against ISIS/ISIL forces in Syria, Russia's top military commander in the Middle East presented legal papers to the US embassy in Baghdad demanding that the Pentagon halt operations in Syria as it was in clear violation of international law. Former CIA and US State Department analyst Larry Johnson agreed, stating: "Under international law, Russia holds all of the cards in Syria. It has been invited into Syria by the Government."
Russian Embassy Taunts the
UK over 'Legitimate' War in Syria
Russia's UK embassy has taunted Britain over claims it is conducting an apparently 'illegitimate' campaign in Syria. In a tweet to Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond from its official account, it said: 'Russian actions in Syria are legitimate by international law, unlike those of others.
'We're are acting on government request.'
The message refers to a request made by Syrian President Bashar Al Assad for support against rebel groups in its four-year civil war.

Putin Orders Military Draft Of 150,000
As Russian Air Fury Pounds Syria
Sorcha Faal / What Does It Mean *
(October 1, 2015) -- A new Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that yesterday's decree signed by President Putin for the autumn conscription campaign of an additional 150,000 troops will ensure the continued combat viability of Federation Military Forces as it faces not only Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) terrorists, but the growing threat of war between Russia and the West.
According to this report, even though Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated about President Putin's conscription decree that "this . . . is a regular document which the president signs twice a year. It is not related to Syria in any way, of course, this situation does not concern the draftees in any way", the propagandist lies being disseminated by the Obama regime about the Federation now border on the perverse.
Fueling the Obama regimes anger against Russia, this report continues, was President Putin, yesterday, against ISIS/ISIL forces operating in Syria—immediately after which he ordered combat operations to begin.
Immediately prior to Russian combat operations against ISIS/ISIL forces in Syria beginning, this report states, Russia's top military commander in the Middle East presented to the Americans at their embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, a legal démarche demanding that the United States cease all operations in Syria as it was in clear violation of United Nations and international law by its unprovoked attacks against the sovereignty of a foreign nation—a crucial point expounded on by former US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and US State Department analyst Larry Johnson who said:
"Under international law, Russia holds all of the cards in Syria. It has been invited into Syria by the Government of Bashir Assad.
The Syrians want the Russians on the ground and in the fight. The United States, by contrast, is the law breaker. We are committing an act of war against the Government of Syria by conducting unauthorized air strikes and inserting U.S. Special Operations forces on the ground."
And of the greatest worries to Russian combat commanders in Syria requesting that this démarche be issued to the Americans , this report warns, are for those US Special Forces operating illegally in Syria who "insanely" have been ordered by the Obama regime to wear a combat designation patch on their uniforms that is nearly identical to that worn by ISIS/ISIL troops thus putting their lives in grave danger.

With the Obama regime having now been issued this démarche, this report says, Russia is now no longer legally responsible should these US Special Forces be killed by Federation airstrikes (or other such combat methods) and, even more dangerously, American aircraft illegally operating in Syrian airspace are likewise able to be targeted and downed too.
Important to note too, MoD analysts in this report state, the Federation, prior to yesterdays combat, attempted to forestall war when, back in August, all of the Syrian opposition groups were invited to Moscow to mediate and end to this conflict.
However, this report continues, with the Obama regime blocking all avenues of peace, Russia was left with no choice but to declare war on ISIS/ISIL thus causing President Putin to shame these Western warmongers by stating earlier this week at the United Nations:
"Instead of the triumph of democracy and progress, we got violence, poverty and social disaster -- and nobody cares a bit about human rights, including the right to life, I cannot help asking those who have forced that situation: Do you realize what you have done?"
And to what exactly these Western warmongers have done, this report details, is to unleash the fury of over 50 Russian Aerospace Forces warplanes and helicopters that have begun to pulverize ISIS/ISIL forces in Syria.
With the Obama regimes backed media propaganda against the Federations war on ISIS/ISIL becoming more absurd and outlandish by the hour, this report says, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov was forced to advise American reporters to stop listening to the Pentagon and, instead, get the truth directly from the MoD.
In just one example of this Obama regime propaganda, this report notes, was the accusation that Russian forces were killing children—which was immediately proved to be a lie when the picture used by the American media to support this allegation turned out to be a complete fabrication as it was taken five days prior to any Federation combat operations.
And as these 150,000 new Russian troops begin reporting to their training bases, this report concludes, though they will, most likely, not have to fight in Syria, the same cannot be said about the West -- especially when viewed in the light of the United Kingdom's top military officer calling on his nation to prepare for war with Russia.
