REAL bad news for the Russian bashing Neocons who clearly want to see Christians beheaded in Syria.
Three aspects of bad for them (see below):
1—The base is known to have been held by ISIS, NOT by rebels. This is another spoiler for the Neocon lie that the Russians were ONLY bombing “moderates” and the Syrian Army was ONLY fighting “moderates.” (If you believed that, you were in fact swallowing the notion that the Syrian Army and ISIS were allies. Neocon journalists and the suckers who believe them are really stupid, to borrow Trump’s favorite word).
2—This Russian-Syrian joint victory shows again that the US never wanted to defeat ISIS.
3—This is a moral victory for Russia and Assad that the world will not soon forget. The cesspool US government has already lost most of its allies but this will ratchet that loss of prestige up another notch.
It will really be hard politically for Obama to order Russian planes to be shot down (as Carly Fiorina says he should) now that the world can easily see that the Russians are the ONLY ones that sincerely intended to stop ISIS.
