Flight Records List Russia Sending Tons of Cash to Syria

Nov 25, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: ProPublica

This past summer, as the Syrian economy began to unravel and the military pressed hard against an armed rebellion, a Syrian government plane ferried what flight records describe as more than 200 tons of "bank notes" from Moscow.

Putin can afford it! Oil prices have made Russia quite wealthy.

I thought it said 5 plane loads but it is actually 8 flights of 30 tons each. Boy talk about frequent flyer miles. Obviously this was done before Iraq started to have the planes land for inspection.

I agree. I thought it was Russian currency being shipped but it is Syrian pounds being printed in Russia, something they did not want to do as it will devalue the Syrian pound even more.

Harm? I'll tell you where the harm is, the harm is V. Putin may be Russia's choice but China is contributing more than Russia
Also Belarus and North Korea with the Ukraine are all helping out, this article if you study it closely bears the hallmark of Putin's election committee.

You must have the ability to become invisible, since you keep sneaking into Leaders’ money coffers, and nobody caught you there yet.

Russia is helping Syria to overcome this crisis by helping them in this way. I appreciate it. Thanks Mr. Putin for ur help and I THINK Putin SHOULD HAVE HELPED Libya in this way. If it had happened, Gadafi would have been alive.

Russia and China have both taken solemn united pledges to help Syria and let it not go Libya ways on regime changes.

And China is doing its contribution via Russia as the Chinese miltary and civilian leaders vowed that in Moscow few months ago.They even vowed WW3 to save Syria.

I think mighty America is now showing wisdom by staying calm.We need peace the most. It seems now doubtful that things in Syria could go Libya ways as Russia- China united or singular factor was missing alltogether over there and even Qadaffi did'nt want it for help.For Syria, it is there solid and strong.

SO LET US HOPE THAT ALL LEAVE SYRIA AS IT WAS BEFORE THE TROUBLES FANNED -- MOSTLY EXTERNALLY.BUT THIS RUSSIA- CHINA FACTOR COULD OR WILL PREVENT SYRIA GOING DOWN OR ALTERED.

FOR WORLD PEACE REASONS, THE WORLD HAS TO RESPECT RUSSIA- CHINA FACTOR AS THE TWO COUNTRIES TOGETHER USE AND REFINE MORE COMBINED OIL, GAS AND POWER THAN EVEN AMERICA.IF OPPOSSED, THE TWO COULD KICK A NEW WORLD ORDER THAT COULD ALTER THE WORLD COMPLETELY.

RESPECT FOR MIGHTY AMERICA, MIGHTY RUSSIA AND MIGHTY CHINA IS MUST FOE PEACE REASONS.

Syriana she is sweeter than honey
Now she'll see that lots of money
Syrians smiles from lovable cheeks
It's sweet Syriana all money seeks

Money you drop on Syriana's feet
O she's pretty, most so sweet
Russia, China and just all
Money is gift, in love they fall

Syriana is love right from start
Money is small thing, give your heart
Syriana babe if you possess
Dance in happyness she says yes

Yes from her is just indeed
Grandest love each life does need
Syriana you are beauty bliss
Take all my money just for a kiss
