Hmmmm, last I checked the sovereign Nation of Syria had invited only two countries to enter and assist in the eradication of ISIS . Russia and Iran.
It is curious that in the short time period that Russia has been involved they have done more to eradicate the scourge infecting Syria than the US had done in the two years it has been leading this alleged ‘anti-ISIS’ coalition.
So my question is what right does the US have to stipulate any demands or requirements of Russia? When they have been invited by a sovereign Nation. The US, however, has basically entered said sovereign Nation of it’s own accord to tell them who should be in charge.
Not to mention claiming victories against ISIS while using videos of airstrikes that are essentially Russian. Making it very clear that the US has no footage to backup their claims. Quite the contrary they have been accused of not only backing ISIS but having created it.
The Russian campaign in Syria has brought to light just how inept the alleged US led campaign truly is. As well as the discrepancies in the reports given by US officials. For the most part fairy tales and fabrication!
Essentially waging war without declaring war on Syria itself!
What unmitigated audacity!
Russia ‘must change strategy’ in Syria if it wants to join US-led ‘anti-ISIS’ coalition – State Dept
“If other nations not in the coalition [the US-led coalition] want to join it and become part of it and focus on the fight against ISIL [Islamic State/IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL] that’s a conversation we’re certainly willing to have,” US State Department spokesperson John Kirby said.
An appeal to expand the US-led coalition fighting Islamic State came from French President Francois Hollande three days after deadly attacks in Paris a week ago. Stating that “France is at war,” Hollande called for the creation of a “large coalition,” which could unite forces with Russia “to achieve a result that has taken too long.”
The grand coalition is going to be the focus of separate talks President Hollande will have with his American and Russian counterparts in coming days. The French leader is expected to hold talks in Washington on November 24 and in Moscow on November 26.
However, the US State Department says that Russia’s involvement in the coalition would depend on Moscow’s “commitment.”
“But in order for that to work, every member of the coalition has to have the same focus on defeating ISIL, and thus far we, talking about Russia, haven’t seen that same commitment,” Kirby said, referring to Russia’s support for the Syrian President Bashar Assad. “It’s inconsistent with the goals of the coalition, which is to defeat ISIL, if you’re also propping up the Assad regime.”
