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.

Another school shooting: 1 dead, 3 wounded in Northern Arizona University shooting - suspect in custodyAnother school shooting: 1 dead, 3 wounded in Northern Arizona University shooting - suspect in custody
A freshman is dead and three other young men were injured in a shooting at Northern Arizona University (NAU) in Flagstaff. Police say a "confrontation" between two groups of students culminated in multiple gunshots.
The shooter, identified as 18-year-old freshman Steven Jones, is in custody. Students are forbidden from carrying firearms on the NAU campus, according to University police chief Gregory Fowler.
The incident occurred at 1:20 a.m. local time Friday in the parking lot outside the Mountain View Hall dormitory, which houses the university's fraternities and sororities.
The three injured men are being treated at Flagstaff Medical Center. They were identified by NAU as Nicholas Prato, Kyle Zientek and Nicholas Piring. The university also identified the student who died as Colin Brough.
Delta Chi fraternity confirmed that some of their members were involved in the incident. "We do not have any information on the victims nor do we know if the deceased individual is a member of the Fraternity," Delta Chi said in a statement. "At this time, we can confirm that this incident had no ties to the chapter."
At a press conference Friday morning, NAU president Dr. Rita Cheng said that everyone was "shocked and deeply saddened" by the shooting, which she described as an "isolated unprecedented incident." As the NAU campus has been declared secure, classes will go on as scheduled, Cheng added.
Northern Arizona University is a four-year public university with some 20,000 students at the Flagstaff campus.
