These strikes, near the city of Homs, is not under control of ISIS, of the Islamic State. So already we are seeing the true intentions of Vladimir Putin.
Fox News’ strategic analyst, former Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters, outlined Putin’s intentions of building a Middle Eastern alliance.
What Putin is doing, his goals are absolutely transparent. First: He wants to support Assad. That’s the tactical goal. Second: He intends to do as much mischief as possible while Obama is still in office and, and, and unable to act or unwilling to act. And Third and longterm: He is building an alliance in the Middle East with Iran, Iraq, Iraq and Syria to keep us out.

On Monday, Putin assured the UN that his troops would only target ISIS. The attacks, however, allegedly hit areas held by groups opposing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Putin is a master of propaganda. He’s brilliant at turning a situation on its head. In where, you know, he’s going into Syria to rescue the world, save the world from ISIS. He wants to wipe out all of the opposition to Assad except Islamic State leaving us with a stark choice – leaving the world with a stark choice – support Assad or support Islamic State. This guy is good and we’ve got a pixie dust president who still thinks he can say something three times and make it come true.
