Destruction of the Su-24 and the strike on Wagner: if you didn’t answer, now wait

The events that took place on the night of February 7-8, 2018 in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, look extremely unsightly, no matter how you look at them.

Evil tongues say that the aviation of the Western coalition of interventionists, led by the United States, shot a convoy of so-called “ichtamnets”, i.e. Russian mercenaries the so-called "PMC Wagner." Losses amounted, according to evil gossip, walking on social networks, from several dozen to several hundred Russians and immigrants from the Donbass. And in fact, the mass deaths of all these people went unpunished.

The attempts to “write off" and discredit all these people by removing them from the legal framework look extremely repulsive. Let's try to make out Technology PR used for these unsightly purposes. Below is a quote from Kommersant:

Russian mercenaries in Syria, who came under fire from the United States and Kurds in the province of Deir ez-Zor in the north of the country, wanted to seize oil and gas fields controlled by the Kurds

Let's ask some logical questions? If they were mercenaries, then who hired them? And for what purpose? And how did they get into the country? Where and from whom did they receive equipment and weapons?

What does the phrase “wanted to seize oil and gas fields” mean? How is it to capture, being in a foreign country? For what purpose? And how to keep them after capture?

And why, in fact, were these deposits controlled by the Kurds? Deir ez-Zor is a Syrian province subordinate to Damascus. Kurdish armed groups are illegal, and they do not submit to legal authority in the capital of the Syrian Arab Republic. Is that why Russian military experts were hired to regain control of the deposits? So is it worth writing in Kommersant about them in such a tonality?

And can the statement that the conduct of an offensive operation on oil fields was "dangerous amateur action" in reality correspond to reality? It is clear that as a result of a complete fiasco and losses incurred, it is advantageous to distance oneself from these people, transferring them to the status of dangerous initiative volunteers.

In this whole situation, the trend is most annoying. At first, the Su-24 was shot down with impunity. Then the Su-25 was also shot down with impunity. Now the Russians involved in the operation in Syria have been killed with impunity. The boundaries of the permissible are shifted more and more. What's next? Will a Russian warship be sunk? Landed a military landing in the Crimea?

The streets and gateways that served as the universities of our elite must teach that one must respond with a blow, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. If, after shooting down our "drying" for the first time, a Turkish plane would have been “dropped” immediately by missiles, and preferably two, there would have been nothing like the shooting of our military specialists.

If there is no readiness to play adult games in an adult way, then it may be worth playing in your sandbox?
