What had been said behind closed doors was now being stated publicly.

State Department Spokesman John Kirby said at this time, "Extremist groups will continue to exploit the vacuums that are there in Syria to expand their operations, which could include attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities. Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags, and will continue to lose resources, perhaps even aircraft."

Zakharova viewed that statement as a direct threat by Kirby and suggested, that Kirby was possibly giving a direct order to the ISIS militants. She wrote on her Facebook page at the time, "Is that a go get em command?"

She claimed that Kirby's statement insinuated that the US had direct control over the insurgents and that they were directing them. The following tactic by the US and the shill western allies was the call by oafish British Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, for people to rally outside Russian Embassies and protest.

She said he wasn't the only one who called for this but he was the only one in the public eye.

She went on to say that these anti-Russian programs were supported by the other western states ministries either financially or, by other creative means.

Zakharova insisted that the real attacks were not those who answered the call to protest in front of Russian Embassies but, the continued ISIS attacks against the Russian Embassy in Damascus zeroing in with large mortars. Once again, the assumption was left to the listener of the possibility that the US was directing these attacks in retribution.

She stated that all these provocations went on until Dec 2016 with the death of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov.

She claimed that Obama's Administration was viewed by other world diplomats as a subject of disgust and say's that his administrations attitude of exclusivity, served to send one message to the rest of the world which was, "That the most powerful military force has unlimited rights to create evil in the world".

She then reiterated in disbelief, "Let me say that again. They demonstrated the belief that the strongest has the right to create evil. This is not the middle ages but the 21st century!" she exclaimed.
