This is not going to end well.

This is simply about Russia having a bigger dickhead in charge than the US, a small-scale version of the Cold War, and Putin wanting to strut and flex.

Nobody wins, Syria loses.

Same as it ever was.

How does no one win if ISIS gets defeated?

But they don't seem to deploy ground troops at the moment, so I don't know what this achieves more than the Allied bombings.

Plus the American airstrikes are against international law, those of Russia aren't cause they asked permission of the Syria government.

Are you saying Syrian Rebels = ISIS? Given that the rebels (at least some of them anyway) have been fighting ISIS, that's a pretty unusual statement.

Syria was going to lose anyway. The Middle East is a dumpster fire, largely of the USA's making, so what room does the USA have to criticize ANY other nation's actions over there?

Let Putin play. Maybe he'll square the ISIS problem away.

Imagine supporting Assad

I maintain that the real solution here is to just nuke Iraq/Syria, build a gigantic wall around them or encase them in a large dome of some sort. These are clearly the only rational solutions.
I have nothing important to say

If Isis is defeated then dickhead Assad stays in power. If Isis wins the Syria will be ruled by a dickhead worst than Assad. There is no winning here.

I am saying that I believe Russia will be bombing ISIS as well. Also some of the Syrian rebels have given their western weapons to al-Qaeda so not sure if you should root for them.

Short of a genocide ISIS isn’t going to be defeated militarily. Arrogant foreigners bombing Muslims creates violent fanatics, not the other way around. The only way to defeat ISIS is to offer the people of the Middle East a better option, and that would require the assholes running the world to approach this constructively rather than just blowing stuff up and propping up dictators, which isn’t going to happen.

"We're talking specifically about Syria and we are not talking about achieving foreign policy goals or about satisfying our ambitions ... but exclusively about the national interests of the Russian Federation," said Ivanov.


...uhhhhh

that sounds like a double contradiction right there

the assad regime is crap and they screwed themselves. their 'counter-terrorist' operations last year were 6% aimed at ISIS, and 94% aimed at opposition groups.

thanks france

I remember a year or two ago, Assad was boasting how he was going to beat the rebels by the end of the year. Fast forward to now and Syria is nothing more than a gigantic hell hole of death.

the first assad was a master at using his spies to constantly pit opposition groups against each other. the current one just went "lol kill everybody" and now there's all this crap and ugh
it's all just coming back

The first Assad perfected "lol kill everybody" they didn't call his little brother the Butcher of Hama for his brisket.

Seriously, America and Europe need to step up and accept these Syrian refugees. Have some goddamn empathy for once.

Yes. Cause it is problems in their personal lives that leads to them going there, not islam. And I was hoping for a genocide.

It really is. We should just cede a large chunk of Texas to the refugees and call it a day.

We've got some land here that's somewhat similar to what they are used to, so that's not a bad idea. I don't known about "cede", but if they want to settle it I'm up for that. We can always use more good folks as taxpayers, and it's likely that the vast majority of the refugees are pretty good people.

Bring 'em on.
