The overwhelmingly successful Russian offensive against Western terror proxies in Syria has blown the lid off the United States' fabricated 'War on Terror'™. The US has essentially been deposed from power in Syria and now sits in the geopolitical backseat. If the US were led by rational, but humanly flawed individuals, one might expect some reflection about the error of their ways. But we know by now that the sycophants and parasites in Washington have no capacity for reflection. The remaining strategic recourse for these emotionally-barren trolls is to distract people in whatever way they can; bomb hospitals, set up 'lone shooters', and - of course - squawk an endless stream of baseless lies.

The latest absurdity comes from the spineless bobbing-heads at CNN. Instead of acknowledging how the United States has been outmaneuvered in Syria, CNN presstitutes make fools of themselves by projecting the dying Empire's impotence onto Russia:
A number of cruise missiles launched from a Russian ship and aimed at targets in Syria have crashed in Iran, two U.S. officials told CNN Thursday.

Monitoring by U.S. military and intelligence assets has concluded that at least four missiles crashed as they flew over Iran.

The U.S. believes, based on intelligence reports of damage assessments, that some buildings were damaged and civilians may have been hurt.

It's unclear where in Iran the missiles landed. The Russian ships have been positioned in the south Caspian Sea, meaning the likely flight path for missiles into Syria would cross over both Iran and Iraq.
In just a few sentences, CNN accomplishes a masterful feat in 'journalistic' impropriety by not providing a single fact, any valid sources, or a shred of evidence for their claims. Despite the United States having the most advanced satellite surveillance system on the planet, these unnamed 'US officials' offer no information on where said missiles supposedly crashed, what might possibly have been hit, or anything on the specific damage that would have been caused. Yet this arrogant assertion is readily accepted and promoted as 'solid intelligence' by CNN. With this complete lack of integrity, it's easy to see how CNN indiscriminately complied with their Washington masters and parroted all the senseless lies that have driven the world into chaos since 9/11.

Had 'news' organizations like CNN been doing their jobs and not been such submissive cowards, the public would have known that Saddam never had weapons of mass destruction; that Assad did not gas his own people; that Gaddafi had in fact created one of the most advanced civilizations in modern times (for which the Libyan people loved him); and that the United States does not fight terrorism but creates it. Russia is taking a historical stand against the driving force behind these atrocities and all CNN can do is to continue peddling their silly, pathetic lies.

Notice in the video that even CNN's own former Moscow bureau chief challenges the veracity of this grim fairy tale. If four missiles really had hit Iran you can bet it would be easy enough to find a plethora of local and national Iranian news covering the massive damage that would be inflicted from four battleship carrier missiles. No worries though, because the Huffington Post picked up where CNN left off:
The Islamic Republic Press Agency, an official Iranian government press outlet, reported on Thursday that the governor of Takab said an "unidentified flying object" near the town crashed and then exploded. The article contained a photo of a drone, however, and did not provide details about the origins of the crash and explosion.
Huffington Post readers probably didn't pick up on the hint. The IRPA was not so subtly suggesting that the crashed 'ufo' was likely a drone. It's a logical conclusion, given the fact that Iran has shot down multiple US and Israeli drones in recent years, and that Iranian Colonel Farzad Fereydouni told IRNA in August that their air defense issued warnings to 12 unidentified planes in the past year alone.

It's not inconceivable that upon seeing Russia's missile launch, Washington or Tel Aviv gave the signal to crash land one of their drones on Iranian soil in an effort to do a little psychopathic 'reality-creation'.

Too bad for the US and friends that Iran isn't playing along. The Iranian Defense Ministry told RIA Novosti that Tehran has "no information of Russian missiles crashing on Iranian territory." Iranian General Musa Kamali also told Sputnik:
"All those media reports alleging that Russian missiles aiming at Syria hit Iran are blatant lies."

"If the people making those claims had any proof, they would have certainly presented it," he said. "The US made similar allegations in the past as part of their psychological warfare against whoever opposes their policies in the region."
Iran's media provided further support when the Fars News Agency stated, "Since Russia began its operations in Syria, Western media and officials have launched an all-out assault against Moscow." The spokesman for Russia's Defense Ministry, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, put it succinctly,
"No matter how unpleasant and unexpected for our colleagues in the Pentagon and Langley was yesterday's high-precision strike on Islamic State infrastructure in Syria, the fact remains that all missiles launched from our ships have found their targets."
The US will continue their all-out (dis)information attack, but it will do little to cover up the fact that the global balance of power is shifting. Washington is fast losing its position as the dominant player on the global chessboard, and the once-feared weight behind their hollow words is fading. And just think: all it took was one person in one country to stand up against wrong-doing for countless others to follow. Putin has done this on the world stage, and now it is the turn of ordinary people everywhere to join him.
