Oh well. I'd kinda like Alla to respond to the three questions I asked her on page three.

That would make sense if that one person was Putin or Assad... but of course it isn't

RE: Russia begins airstrikes against Syria
The U.S. has played its Middle-east military strategy card to gain more control of the region. Afghanistan and Iraq correspond to strike one and strike two, and this gamesmanship move for “regime-change” in Syria will stabilize the Middle-east, not going to happen. The U.S. has helped arm and train the Syrian rebels (moderates and ISIS factions), the equivalent of a foreign nation arming all the inner-city street gangs in the U.S. After 12 days of the Russian entering the fray, and the news is the “rebels/gangs” are on the run, requires the U.S. to provide stories that they are bombing also and killing the terrorists it created.

Of course, the U.S. does not want the news story about Russian successes, so they write stories like “Russia just handed ISIS a 'big win' in Syria's largest city” by Pamela Engel. Ms. Engel’s argument is the Russian bombing is a screw-up because as follows, “The terror group ISIS made gains near Syria's largest city in the last 24 hours, indirectly aided by Russian airstrikes that drove other groups out.”

IMHO, ISIS biggest win in Syria was the weapons received from Libya, paid for by Qatar, and driven across the border from Turkey, all planned with U.S. approval. U.S. plan could only work if the U.S. could find some democratic leaning individuals in Syria. Unfortunately, the “moderate rebels” exist in numbers so low to count politically or militarily non-existent, CIA cannot conjure them out of thin air; undoubtedly the U.S. ‘s “regime change” for Syria plan has failed, and there is a high probability that Iraq will side with the Russians, because of the results they get in eliminating ISIS.

As Russia said, “We cannot discriminate between the different shades of ‘crap’. So we will hammer everyone who shoots at the soldiers of the legitimate government of Syria, at whose request we are here.”

In a year let’s see if ISIS is still in Syria, or do they go back across the border to Iraq and Turkey, also known as blowback.

Yes. Russia is fighting against a coalition of rebels using classic strategy: Eliminate the weaker members of the coalition first.
