The Russians better hope this is over soon. Sounds like they are greatly underestimating their enemy if they think ready to die fanatics are just gonna roll over in a few weeks without a ground troop surge
Russian warplanes have destroyed a surface-to-air missile launcher that the Islamic State terrorist group previously captured from the Syrian Army, the Russian Defense Ministry reports. The bombing campaign in Syria is forcing the jihadists to flee.
The 9K33 Osa short-range air defense launcher was destroyed by a Sukhoi Su-34 bomber in Eastern Douma near Damascus, ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told the media in his Thursday daily briefing.
I just have to wonder what the American, British and other allied leaders must be thinking when they realise that more and more of their own citizens are starting to root for Putin and Mother Russia.
They trained rebels who then trained ISIS.

Obama, CIA and military recruited, trained and armed ISIS. The plan was to have ISIS start civil war and overthrow Assad in Syria, but that was only part of the plan for ISIS. "They" saw a future of having ISIS be the go to group to blame for any thing terrorist. Any sovereign country that did not fall "in line" could be invaded by ISIS and hey, they had an excuse to completely destroy the country then. All under the guise of "helping". They had it all planned. And then...Russia. America wasn't wanting someone to really destroy ISIS. That was just hype to keep the masses happy while they supplied weapons, supplies and agendas to their favorite evil terrorist. Somehow Russia got the idea the Obama group really wanted these guys defeated. The worst part, those big bad ISIS terrorist weren't much of a problem for Russia. Of course, Obama group can't help Russia with locations. What if some CIA buddies turned out to be collateral damage in those ISIS camps? This has thrown a major kink in the NWO crowds plans. I say go Russia.

And all the while they allowed ISIS to continue to operate with impunity because they shared the same goal as them - the removal of Assad. THAT trumped all other considerations.
