It is starting to appear that the reason Russian President Vladmir Putin wanted to meet privately with President Obama was to let him know he was going into Syria, and was going after ISIS his way. The problem of course is Russia wants to defeat ISIS by leaving Syrian President Assad in control. The U.S. wants Assad out, because we feel he’s the reason ISIS has made the strides it has in Syria.
Now, because Russia wants Assad in, the U.S. found it curious that Russia seems to on Wednesday have bombed Syrian areas where ISIS is not known to be active, but where U.S.-backed anti-Assad forces are.
Is Russia’s strategy more pro-Assad, than anti-ISIS? The White House has its suspicions. Now, what can they do about it?
