#Syria #Military #Iran
What is name of person killed ?
how do you know that anti-missile defense were off?🤣 because if it was active and could not intercept the drone, then it would be a disgrace to usa by their non-efficiency equipment. in my opinion, the Iranians realized more than any other country that the capabilities and performance of american military equipments have been exaggerated.
What I fears the most is Biden. He will make the same mistakes as G.Bush made in Iran Afghanistan Iraq isis. Americans will see wen the time come
Retaliation is war
Why do US have illegal bases in Syria?
Biden doesn’t do anything: BiDeN wOnT dEfEnd AmErIcA!!!!!
Biden does something: WhY dId sLeEpY jOe Do tHiS?
You people are absolutely positively disgusting and should not procreate
It’s confirmed Israel is behind attack on US bases, they used reverse engineered Iran drones and crept close to iranian backed bases to steal those attacks to escalate tension between US and Iran
EUROPEAN COUNTRIES AND USA ARE GOING TO BECOME BEGGARS SOON BY INVOLVING THEM SELF IN UKRAIN RUSSIA WAR AND POKING THEIR NOSE IN OTHER COUNTRIES PROBLEMS. NOW SIRIYA.
hahahahaha ya sure ya betcha Boris
Breaking News – ‘America salvage Iranian drones in Ukraine and use them to provoke war with Iran’ 🙄
Mr PETER ALEXANDER DO YOU JUSTIFY NATO EXPANSION IS THE ROOT CAUSES FOR RUSSIA UKRAIN WAR. IF YES STOP SUPPLYING ARMS TO UKRAIN. USA IS HAVING LOT OF INTERNAL PROBLEMS. CONCENTRATE ON THAT. WORLD WILL BE PEACE FULL. THIS WORLD IS GODS GIFT TO MANKIND.
Send the grandpa to the retirement house…just a contractor not a soldier so who cares.
US doesn’t like anyone parking in their backyard but US doing exactly that to other countries 😂 fookn hypocrite US governments
exactly fascist nazi skum
Wonder why America calls it 👁️ran
Over a contractor that signed up for it? 👎👎
Islam will destroy all western dirt
Wait Several American Casualties
im surprised they didnt have a back up radar system
Stop lying biden u can’t save israhells apartheid sadistic evil criminal government
Omggg 3rd World War for 😱 sure
So what is going to happen when the inevitable Iranian Nuke is tested? After all the years of “Iran will never have a bomb” and then they get it what will be the response? Iran will definitely use it and we all know it.
use it on Israel ?
Would I ever connect the two of them? Well, even if what happened to the natives, looks obvious as there are 4-5 countrys with people who doesnt know god, and, but then also, you effect all of us, and the memorys of better expectations guided us to being, is now covered in fake. < probably the most irritating thing of all of it.
Americans should of should of stayed home to their ugly wives. Syrians don’t back down they love Syria more than any American loves their country
What do you expect when you invalid a sovereign nation and attempt to over throw their government and control their natural resources? Democrats, great at creating conflict at home and abroad.
Shouldn’t be in Syria stealing their resources, no mercy for us terrorists.
If they had any nuts they would wait for one of those parades and return to sender.
America Gotta stay On her knees praying to the Almighty God, creator of heaven and earth. That way she will always be #1 and All her enemies will tremble at the sound of her American Soldier Footsteps! Because God is with Her to bring about God’s almighty Justice and punish the Wicked and the ungodly!
So let me understand this correctly, a foreign military personnel (American contractor) was killed by a drone by the Syrian national guard (pro-iranian forces) in their own country?? Wow that is so shocking..
yeah !! The american terrorists will pay the ultimate price for their evil ways
3 US bases have been devastated incl. US largest base in Syria by Resistance forces in Syria with massive casualties that US media and gov. is keeping quiet and hiding it from the public today as a retaliation of US attack last night.
USA IS A TERRORIST NATION – NOT INVITED TO SYRIA –
prior to the attack the US bases air-defences were disabled and ecmd by resistance forces electronic warfare systems.
Started with Bidens disgraceful withdrawal from Afghanistan. Giving Taliban terrorists armored vehicles, weapons and war planes. Demonstrated to the world we’re weak woke and soft on terrorists. Never forget the 13 American soldiers killed because of Bidens stupid decision
TRUMP SURRENDERED TO THE TALIBAN EINSTEIN – MAKE UP ANOTHER LIE
BORIS THIS ONE WON’T WORK
Invaded Syria 🇸🇾 illegally what are you talking about Sir
Wipe IRGC off the face of the earth. Iran has been shouting death to America since 1979.
The only Iranians I like, are Farah Diba, her family and Persian cats.😻
IRANIANS ARE A WONDERFUL PEOPLE !! YOU ARE AN IGNORANT BIGOT
WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION AGAIN !!
America could just leave Syria
Amarica is a terrorist countery . Amarica is a muslim enemy .
Never waste a war to distract you from a bad economy.
So I guess the us is looking for war with Russia Iran and China wow fools they should worry about the US first
Why is part of Syria occupied by US ? That is illegal ! Stealing oil from Syria !
We should respect the sovereignty of another country! Oh sorry, that’s for Ukraine only.
This is a Civil War half-way around the world. The President Assad never invited us into his country and has requested we leave repeatedly in including at the United Nations. This has nothing to do with our national security.
I said it over and over again, we need better more Sophisticated surface air missiles. The AVENGER or whatever they are using to protect the base did not see the UAV. They are lying that it wasn’t working or it was under maintenance. The United States defense is primitive when it comes to Russia defensive weaponry.
Our military is focused on renaming military bases and gender confusion.
Our enemies are training killers .
Contractor you mean mercenary tell the truth to the American people
Ms Higurashi Said Stop War How many times Stopping War No More Deaths Bodies War Hello People’s America President Evil Tyranny Aggression Never Ending War Mr America Thinking War Killing oh No That Enough Nobody’s can’t going to Win in War Make Love Not War No More War
Kagome Higurashi Said Stop War My Mother Right Stopping War Make Love Not War No More War Over Over Over Over Over Over Over on United States Military Industrial Complex Training More Soldiers Enough Nobody’s can’t going to Win in War Someday Love Respectful Peacefully Russia Someday No More Militarism Never Again
How many 100 dollar bills can Obama stack in two 747 airplanes? Iran didn’t think it was enough.
As long as the American army is in our region, the attack on you will continue Sardar Soleimani’s revenge continues.
😂 they want war to make more money
this is Gulf of Tonkin in the making…
How accurate is US intelligence on the pro-Iranian? If they had been accurate, they would have find the WMD.
US contractor stealing oil..
Under Biden Americans is killed in Syria, Mexico and Afghanistan. And his answer is we dont seek conflict, that’s just pathetic.
Is the US military stealing oil in Syria? It’s a special military theft:)))Supporting Putin to stop the sick Americans!!!
Americans have killed thousands of innocent people in Syria, now one American is killed and they are yelling like dogs
Death for Europe and America
U.s.army not invited in Syria make base illegal .time to fullout
Who is right
So America mercenaries aiding terrorists in Syria got killed…
How about injured Contractors that don’t get help they PAID for from that high a$ insurance everybody has to take…. ?????????
We should all feel safe and cozy after our great president delivered the sleepy message to Iran. I thought he was going to fall asleep reading that threating letter. I don’t think the Iranians were very threatened by Joe. Not a joke!!
Looks like we don’t have that Patriot system there so we lost again looks like, maybe inside job
America needs to wake going to f*** around here and then we’re gonna get nuked so let’s get it done get it over with
By contractor they mean mercenary by retaliatory strike they mean “we are occupying the oil rich part of Syria and we got attacked”.
Fake news 😂😂
Possible with rockets, Daudly CC
The US’ claim to be present in Syria to fight IS, in whose creation US itself played a substantive role, is a mere excuse for continuation of [the country’s] occupation and plunder of Syria’s oil
While I Myself, John Rodriguez, AM no big fan of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the President and Vice President must use Military Force to locate, close with, and destroy the Enemy Aggressor by Fire and Maneuver, and by Close Quarters Combat in the Assault , Shock and Awe!!🇺🇲🇺🇸🪖💣💥🔥🛡️🗡️

Good because what is the United States doing there?
Assad is polluted with Iran.
I’m sure Russia had no role in this
That means there’s a spy he knew that that radar was down and he told the Syrian army of resistance to attack the military base
American can’t stop Iran drones only Israel iron done of Israel .
