Your enemy will have ammo dumps.

If they are concealed, you could hit them accidently. Duh!

The deaths are on the hands of ISIS.

"If it was Russia, the media would go ballistic"

I do not believe so.

I will agree with you when the New York Times keeps thing son the Russians such as

- a tally of drone 'victims'
- a tally of victims of Russian bomb attacks (collateral or mistakes)
- a tally of terrorists in Russian prisons (in a manner similar to Gitmo)
- a running tally of Russian war dead.
- Estimates of civilians killed (excess deaths) in Syria cause by Russian intervention in Syria.

The New York SLIME is very careful on
- who or what they keep statistics on or
- what statics they report
- What page they report statistics. The real estate of story reporting is very important. Is it frontpage, is it above the fold. Is it editorialized also. What section or buried how deep,

I will agree that if the Democrat leaders tell people to hate the Russians, they will.

For example, the American Left is batshit crazyhey are approaching Guard level.

In Portland, Oregon, Democratic Party shock troops shut down a Taco Truck.

The food was not poisonous.
The food was not too expensive.

The Leftists snowflakes shut down the business via harassment, because the operators, 2 white women, had stolen the culture of Mexicans.


The batshit crazy liberals have an academic/technical term for this. It is called cultural appropriation.

That is the women were white and were selling tacos, which is Mexican food/ culture.

So let's so you as a black man opened up a business selling Indian food. If you race or ethnic group was out of favor, some liberals would try to shut your business down via harassment or other means.

Liberals when they get to the Red Guard level will take your bank account, your job, everything in your home. They might not steal some of the stuff but destroy it.

If you have a family Bible where you kept track of the generations (or have an ancestry,com account) they will destroy this too.

A 2nd example is that liberals in Australia are complaining that some parents read to their children at home and that this gives their kids an unfair advantage in school.

Everything that a Liberal pundit, professor, agitator or politician has to be watched.

If Nancy Pelosi or other Democrat tells people to hate Russia. They will.
