I have tremendous respect for special forces troops, my son was a U.S. Marine in a special operations unit from 2001 through 2006. They are tough & committed. And they get the job done. Even if they don’t happen to be American special forces.
Today’s story revolves around the Russian special operations forces (SOF) officer in Syria. The commando was likely part of Russia’s Spetsnaz combat operations unit that was in Syria to hunt down ISIS terrorists.
This commando was probably doing recon around the Syrian city of Palmyra which is an ISIS stronghold. He was identifying terrorist installations and passing coordinates to the Russian Air Force which would then wipe them off the face of the earth.
The ISIS terrorists eventually found him, surrounded him, and moved in for the kill. At that point the SOF called in the Air Force. That would be depression Air Force, because Barack Obama’s Air Force doesn’t actually kill Muslims. He gave the pilots his own coordinates and called in an airstrike on himself. As the ISIS terrorists closed in, Russian jets took them out.
Our condolences to his family, and his comrades in arms, and we hope he receives an appropriate recognition from the Russian military.
As for the Muslim terrorists he took out, we hope they are enjoying eternity in hell.
