Russian propaganda says they have been attacking ISIS with excellent results causing chaos within the organization. US propaganda says Russia has targeted US supported Syrian opposition forces and civilians. (I suppose the US targeted that hospital in Afghanistan the day before yesterday).
It is probably something in between. Russia is probably targeting both the closer in Syrian opposition forces backed by the U.S. and ISIS.
So what Obama as done to help the US backed ‘rebels’ is to resupply them.
Yes, resupply them, but not protect them. He doesn’t dare going up against the Russians and Putin knows it.
The U.S. has far more fire power in the Middle East than Russian. Theoretically it could take out Russian in 24 hours. If not, what is the point of the billions of dollars we spend on the military industrial complex.
(If battle does break out between Russia and the US there goes John Kerry's Noble Peace Prize down the tubes).
