The United States and its Western allies should compensate Russian President Vladimir Putin for the costly military intervention to destroy terrorist groups operating in Syria, a writer and activist based in Boston says.

Russia has carried out airstrikes since Wednesday against the Daesh Takfiri terrorists (ISIL or ISIS) near the city of Homs in western Syria.

The Russian strikes have drawn criticism from Western governments and their allies in the Middle East, which have been supporting the militants operating in the region.

Moscow is “helping an ally who is under attack from a foreign mercenary army,” Daniel Patrick Welch told Press TV on Friday.


Video inside with Welch's comments on his opinion regarding who should flip the bill for Russia saving the day. (paraphrasing)
Fat chance that would happen of course but none-the-less, he makes some good points. All the while, Russia does everything legally unlike US with their propped up mercenaries they can just pick up and move like a chess piece. Except it doesn't work that way says Welch. They're lunatics. Head chopping lunatics.


“They’ve been fighting this fake war on ISIS which is partly their creation or at the very least is an outgrowth of the death squads that they have funded and trained,” he noted.

A senior US administration official said Thursday that Russia will not be able to hold out long in Syria with “no future” for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the Arab country.

CNN quoted several Obama administration officials who said no ambiguity remains about Russia’s strategy in Syria.

According to the CNN report, President Barack Obama's administration assessment is that Russia is seeking to take over the airspace in the region and be the agenda-setting force on the ground.

"The Russians can't be stupid," said a senior administration official. "This is going to be wildly expensive. And they can't hold out long.”

Any country, that enters any conflict, under their own discretion, can pay their own way.

LOL - what an absolutely idiotic thing to say. Let's see, ISIS gets brand new Hi-lux's and weapons and orange overalls and black beheading uniforms like someone is bankrolling their oil production line.

Vlad, whose government thugs have ties to global crime activities and the Russian mafia are legendary in reputation has more revenue flow than is necessary for this task.

The "senior administration official" damn well knows it - he's just pissed that all the money the US has poured into the region is currently being leveled by Vlads air strikes.

LOL - Tom Clancy couldn't make this up - this is gold standard pwning by Vlad...and there are plenty of "enemies of the west and the great Satanic US who will happily bankroll his campaign until the cows come home.

Lolz, you might be right about Vlad and his mates, but you can't seriously content that the bald eagle and it's CIA goons are any better can you?

As for paying Russia to be there - yeah right. Any nation that wants to help needs to roll up it's sleeves and go talk to Mr Assad and Mr Putin and join in. Putin openly called for nations to join him in the fight.

I wonder what the look on his face would be like if someone like Australia took him up on that offer.

How about a HELL NO.

Russia makes enough rubles off of arming Iran, and selling weapons around the world.

They want to play like a big kid ?

They can pay like a big kid.

With no citizens left Assad will have plenty of money once Russia takes control of the oil with their army.

I seriously doubt money will be an issue. If ISIS can find an illegal market for oil, I am sure Assad can find a legal market.

Considering the state of Russia's economy and the fact Iran has deployed ground forces to Syria it looks like nothing more than to offset their costs. Considering Russia's has barely hit any ISIS targets is another failure in the argument. If they want to keep Assad in power then they can pay for it themselves.

ETA - There are still civilians in Syria and no amount of repeating they all left makes it true.

They are not going to do it for free.
I am sure Syria and Iran will have made promises of compensation when asking for help.

Unbelievably partisan.
You take too many things for granted that non-partisan people do not.

And presstv is ... now a legit source? Well, sometimes they may tell a little bit of truth too.. but come on, in connection with Syria and Russia? An Iranian source when Assad - who is no less murderous than the Islamic State - is supported by Iran?

Isn't there a little bit of conflict of interest?
What about Tartus, the Syrian port that Assad keeps for Putin? Does that serve the interests of the world - the West should PAY for it?

Mr. Prawda is mad, crazy, partial and has ideas of grandeur and delusion. And the world will pay dearly, as they did for the German version of the same type of madness 70 years ago.

I think you're just repeating Fox news propaganda. Don't watch Fox. In fact, don't listen to any western media regarding this. Watch presstv to get your news about the war or go to the SAA's facebook page to find out the truth. The truth is, one year later and 5000 airstrikes, US has done nothing to combat ISIS. They're protecting them.

The fact that he thinks Daesh are mercenaries shows how ignorant this "pundit" really is. Daesh are mujahadin, holy warriors. They cannot be defeated militarily, as Russia learned in Afghanistan. Russia cannot afford to spend the next twenty years chasing them from Iraq to Egypt and back.

Because the official organ of a shi'ite theocracy is the only source for information about sunni jihadists.

They are not classical mercenaries, but without the money their numbers would be less.

If they funded the genocide of Christians Russia is the least of their concerns. God will not look kindly on their genocidal acts.

Certainly NOT western media. Do you have another source? It would be in my opinion to watch all points of view and make an unbiased decision. Go directly the SAA then and read what they have to say in Syria.

I don't know if all the right wingers here are willing to concede the States are responsible for this mess but if you are, then go to the source and make your decision. Stay neutral until you gather enough facts. Day 4 and Moscow is still pounding the crap out of ISIS. Funny how they manage to find targets so easy after the states have failed all year. What does that tell you?

As for the op topic -

Does this mean Israel has a right to demand compensation from Iran and Syria over their support of Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists?
