Mostly thrown away by sanctions.

The Kurds may have the help they have been asking for. The shooting down their bomber now has Moscow arming Syria with advanced SAM’s. We may be hat in hand asking for permission to carry out Sorties. The French have already teamed up. Obama just offered more intel.

But then Putin is acting intelligently but USA will try to malign Putin in every possible way in which Turkey incident is only an addition.

Syrian special forces managed, without months of planning, the rescue and this shows how effective the coordination between Syrian forces and Russia can be.

Obama brags about the US-led coalition – but the entry of Russia (at the invitation of Assad) has done more to harm ISIS in months than the US-led coalition has done in two years. Of course, Obama’s priority is “regime change” in Syria – NOT destroying ISIS.

With the Russian economy in dire situation can he afford of the prolonged involvement in the Middle East, which will turn out to be the rope around his neck. Americans failed to learn a lesson from Russia in her involvement in Afghanistan; Do Russians ignore the lesson of American involvement in Iraq? The history does repeat itself.
