From Peter Beaumont and Andrew Roth’s article in London’s Guardian , we have this Putin-supplied whopper:
The Russian military has claimed that the Syrian air defences, whose most modern weapon is a three-decades-old Russian-supplied anti-aircraft system, shot down 71 of 103 missiles fired by the US and its allies, the UK and France.
I point out, as a matter of obvious reality, that this is another of the ongoing series of putin lies.
To those who believe it, however, I am offering – this week only – half-price passes to Aesop’s Unicorn Habitat. Down from $4,000 a ticket to $2,500 – three for $8,000.
