Russia’s Heroic Intervention Against ISIS Continues…..

October 3, 2015

From the Guardian:

“Vladimir Putin’s military operations appear aimed at a wider foe – opposition groups who have wrested control of large amounts of territory from the Assad regime and who are inching closer to his strongholds in central and western Syria, as well as Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaida’s wing in the country….Russian jets have bombed targets in the provinces of Homs, Hama, Idlib and Aleppo, in areas where Isis has no major presence, and where opposition groups, including some backed by the US and Gulf states, hold sway.”

“Terrified residents of affected areas increasingly believe the US has reached a tacit agreement with Russia to preserve the Assad regime. There is also increased sympathy for al-Qaida and its message of American weakness.”

Bombs won’t work.
