Putin: Russian ship to cooperate with France in Syria

By Christopher R Rice

Putin said a French aircraft carrier task force is to approach the Moskva soon and the cruiser is to "cooperate with them as with allies."

Putin's statement came as Russia's defense minister said its warplanes have fired cruise missiles on militant positions in Syria's Idlib and Aleppo provinces. The Islamic State group has positions in Aleppo province; Idlib has the presence of the Nusra Front militant group.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu also told a briefing conducted for Putin on Tuesday that Russian bombers hit Islamic State positions in Raqqa and Deir al-Zour.

Shoigu said the cruise missiles that hit the Aleppo and Idlib positions were fired from supersonic Tu-160 bombers and from Tu-95s, long-distance turboprop strategic bombers that started from Russian territory.

As Russia's campaign in Syria intensifies, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov criticized the United States for pursuing what he said was a contradictory and confusing policy in Syria.

In remarks in a Russian TV documentary shown Tuesday, Lavrov said that analysis of U.S. attacks on Islamic State militants in Syria over the past year indicates that the attacks are sparing the IS units that would pose the most threat to the Syrian army and Assad. The U.S. wants to see Assad removed from power.

Lavrov said this means that Washington is effectively "sitting on two chairs."

Putin also says he’s shared Russian intelligence data on Islamic State financing with his G20 colleagues: the terrorists appear to be financed from 40 countries, including some G20 member states.

During the summit, “I provided examples based on our data on the financing of different Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) units by private individuals. This money, as we have established, comes from 40 countries and, there are some of the G20 members among them,” Putin told the journalists.

Saudi Arabia has been funding and training ISIS fighters in Turkey. Obama decided Assad was worse than ISIS and he has effectively been at war for two years with Assad and not ISIS. By doing this, Obama has allowed ISIS to grow to the point where they have killed over 400 people in 30 days (Russian plane and France attacks). Call your congressman and demand our tax dollars stop supporting an illegal war, a war Congress has not authorized.
Americans don't care who rules Syria. Assad has never done me-or the USA - any harm. We should only be fighting ISIS - ya know, the terrorist. Assad may not be wonderful but here's the truth: His people live as true moderates wearing western clothes, driving western cars, living in western homes; He protected Christians; He keeps a quite border with Israel. If Assad falls, ISIS will rule the country.
