We knew this was coming, given the rhetoric of Donald Trump on the campaign trail. But I didn’t expect the military cooperation with Russia to start so soon!
From Sputnik International, which is funded by the Russian government, to be clear…
Russia has received coordinates of Daesh targets in Al-Bab, Aleppo Province, from the US via the ‘direct line,’ the Russian Defense Ministry said Monday.
The United States has provided coordinates of the terrorists’ targets in the city of Al-Bab in Aleppo province for Russian airstrikes. After the reconnaissance check, Russia and two coalition jets have conducted joint airstrikes on the Daesh targets in the region.
“On January 22, the Russian command center at the Hmeymim airbase has received coordinates of Daesh targets in Al-Bab, Aleppo province, via the ‘direct line’ from the US-led coalition headquarters. After further data verification with the assistance of unmanned aircraft and space reconnaissance, the Russian Aerospace Forces and two jets of the international coalition have conducted airstrikes on the terrorists’ targets,” the statement said.
As a result, several ammunition depots, military hardware and fuel products were destroyed.

The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed the coordinated attacks, which also reportedly involved Turkish forces.
A total of three Russian attack aircraft – consisting of two Su-24Ms and a Su-34 bomber – joined two Turkish F-16s and two F-4s in the strikes.
They successfully took out 22 ISIS targets.
Shortly after this, Russia was given enemy coordinates from US intelligence, which were used to launch another attack with the US-led coalition planes.
I wonder what all the neocon scumbags in Congress and the American media will have to say about this? I’ll keep a lookout on Twitter, since I’m sure the reaction will be both bitter and hilarious. The terrorists, and their neocon enablers, are both on notice. Times are changing…fast!
