Russia disses the U.S.

President Obama’s Iraq-Syria policy is a total catastrophe. He is weak and clueless. This week, Russian airstrikes bombarded areas where anti-Assad groups are located, killing many civilians, including children.

Moscow is conducting these airstrikes against ISIS on behalf of President Bashar al-Assad, who breached President Obama’s red line and is still in power. There are reports that Russia actually bombed non-ISIS Syrian rebels, including some rebels backed by the United States.

Let’s hope that Vladimir Putin won’t start World War III thinking our president won’t act to defend our security.
