To defeat ISIS, Washington must recognize the awkward truth – the rightness of Putin. This was reported RIA Novosti with reference to the American magazine National Review.
“It is clear that for the US administration it is difficult to publicly support Russia and Iran, but the least we can do is to offer tacit support. This means that we need to stop incessantly criticizing Russia for its actions in Syria, and to refrain from actions that would stop her,” writes journalist Jay Hallen.
According to him, in this situation the US needs to stand on the side of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, because it is the only way to establish stability in the region to the level at which it was before the “Arab spring”.
The Islamic State is a terrorist organization whose activities are deemed illegal in Russia.
