A word of note, there is no ”good side” in the Syrian war.
Obama sends strongly-worded ‘Media Note’ on Russian military actions in Syria
Now we’re finally deploying the big guns.
We’ve had six weeks of fruitless palaver as Russia built up a military force in Syria, followed by 48 hours of misdirection and excuse-making from the White House, as Russia put the military force to work bombing non-ISIS targets – some of them linked to U.S.-backed rebels.
When was the joke going to end, and the American response start? Even some Obama supporters were starting to get nervous.
So it’s a relief to see the administration finally taking decisive action.
