This is coolbert:
This is Bien Hoa Vietnam deja vu 1964 all over again? In emulation of the VC/NVA sapper of the Vietnam War era the commandoes of the Islamic State able to do to the Russian what the Vietnamese communist troop was able to do to the American. VC/NVA = Viet Cong/North Vietnamese Army.
"Commando! What kind of word is that? Commando?" - - from the movie "Breaker Morant".
Finally from the latest edition of the DEBKAfile newsletter:
"ISIS commandos infiltrate Syrian base, destroy Russian aircraft: sources"
"Satellite pictures released by Britain's BBC on Tuesday showed widespread destruction at Tiyas air force base (also known as T4) adjacent to Palmyra in northern Syria. The pictures show that Russian warplanes, attack helicopters and dozens of supply trucks were destroyed. After analyzing the pictures, DEBKAfile's intelligence sources said ISIS commandos infiltrated the base, planted bombs under the aircraft, blew them up by remote control and fled."
RUSSIANS LISTENED TO ORCHESTRAL MUSIC WHEN THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN FLYING COMBAT MISSIONS?
See my previous blog entry the topic of which was the VC/NVA sapper unit/commando in Vietnam:
