Quotes-start.png If Russia’s prestige has been enhanced in the Middle East, perhaps it is not so much the fecklessness of American intervention and the resolution of Putin, but that Russia simply had the more viable strategy.

The relationships of these movements to Sunni terrorist movements such as Al Nusra and ISIS has been rather fluid. Quotes-end.png
