There is great concern among members of the US government and just about every Republican running for president over the movement of Russian soldiers, planes and ships to Syria. President Putin says their presence is to assist in the destruction of ISIS, and support the government of Syria. Let’s examine the issues of this move:
1. Russia has been supporting Syria for nearly thirty years, so what’s new about their latest move?
2. AN object of the Russians is to eliminate ISIS. I assume that is also the goal of America.
3. Ironically,the Russians will be protecting Christians and moderate Muslims against terrorist organizations. Any complaint?
4. America fears that Russia will gain a sphere or influence in Syria: Fellows, it already HAS such a sphere.
Frankly, if Putin wants to shed Russian blood to destroy ISIS, go for it, Vladimir!
