Over US 7,000 "airstrikes", conducted the US and her allies, have been strangely ineffective in weakening ISIS, Al Nustra or other terror groups. In fact, if anything, they have gone from strength to strength. Is it likely that their true intention, disguised as fighting terrorism, was actually to beef up the terror groups to overthrow the legitimate government of Syria and plunge the region into quagmire so that a few would benefit?

Who has been arming and financing these terror groups?

Now Russia, considered an enemy by the US and the West has entered the arena with the support of China in a carefully calculated move, although it remains to be seen what role will China actually play in this fight against terrorism. There is talk that there are quite a number of Islamic fighters (2,000?) from China in Syria.

"All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far.

Air strikes are good at destroying hardware, paving the way for ground troops. Something that western coutnries haven't provided in Syria. The peasant armies fighting in Syria are unable to do anything even with airstrike support softening the enemies. And it is likely Assad will have the trouble with Russian air support, being unable to press the advantage.

Russia is not bombing ISIS, they are bombing opponents of President Bashar al-Assad.

You are spreading lies by mixing half truths with lies. The US is backing rebels but not ISIS. Russia is bombing those rebels not ISIS.
