Look for ISIS to "suddenly" find a bunch of Stinger missiles pretty soon.
There is no real way to paint Russia as being "in the wrong" here. They are backing their allies (Syria), and attacking what the US has labeled "ISIS" (CIA "rebels"). The US has supposedly been attacking ISIS for a few years now with little to no results. Russia comes along with a few air strikes and now ISIS is running for the hills.
Of course typical western media is making up every excuse in the book to try and make Russia seem wrong here. I just don't see it. The US has been running around the middle east doing whatever it pleases. Now Russia is backing up one of its allies. As you would expect them to do. All the while, they are calling out the US for its BS.

So its Hezbollah + Iran + Syrian Army backed by Russian Airforce Air cover and presumably Russian Special forces against Al Nusra and the Moderate Rebels.
So it's Russia backing Shia terrorists fighting the Western back Sunni terrorists.
And here are the Syrian civilians caught between a rock, and a hard place.

Russia is the force on the earth to rid it of Gog and Magog as they did in WWII against the last super force of it in the form of the NAZIS.
The US got the Atomic bomb only because Hitler was stupid enough to kick the Jews out who were many of the scientists who created it.
The US is a paper tiger just as Mao Tse Tung said.
They pick on weak countries to invade like Grenada and Panama, and they hardly beat Iraq. They had to bribe the Sunni chiefs to win that.
They got a but kicking in Vietnam…a real Army.
Russia to the worlds rescue….
We take our hats off to them and to the US
YOURE DOWN FOR THE COUNT
You stop following the Zionists and neocons who have destroyed the country.

Why not see the real thing ?
ISIS crying and whining after they were slaughtered in Baiji. The road to Baiji has been cleared and the huge refinery is ISIS free for the first time since 2014.
At least 40 Islamic State fighters have been killed in an air strike on their convoy in the Syrian province of Hama, a UK-based monitoring group reported on Sunday.The attack, which took place on Saturday, also destroyed 16 vehicles in the convoy,
The missiles themselves most likely come from Saudi Arabia’s stockpile, although by law the supply of American-made weapons to a third party must be approved by the U.S. Reports indicate that the TOWs are handed out to groups by the Northern and Southern MOC (Military Operations Command) based in Turkey and Jordan respectively, that are run by Western and Arab intelligence agencies.
