Why Putin Makes a Bad Ally Against ISIS

At first blush, the idea that Russia is a natural ally against Islamist terrorists seems to make sense. The country has suffered horrific terrorist attacks by Islamist extremists, including the bombing in November of a plane above the Sinai Peninsula, which killed 224 passengers and crew, nearly all of them Russian. Around 20 million Muslims, most of them Sunni, live within the Russian Federation, and the country’s security officials report that some 7,000 fighters from the former Soviet republics and Russia have joined the Islamic State.
On deeper examination, however, it becomes clear that an anti-terror alliance with Russia is wishful thinking. Putin has not gone into Syria to defeat the Islamic State. He has intervened to save the regime of Russia’s client, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Putin may sometimes give the appearance that he is ready to abandon Assad, but ultimately he will defend him. Leaving Assad to his fate would be a sign of weakness – and thus anathema to Putin.

  1. My BF was really quiet and looked angry toward me, after taking some misleading advises from some of his family members. We have been dating for more than 7 years and planned getting married toward ending of the year. He seemed moody and don’t care about dinner or the film we watched, before canceling all our plans because of huge pressure from his family members, he was really a mommy’s boy, he does everything his mother says. He said it’s over, when I asked what was wrong, he was very angry and wanted me out of his sight.
    When I contacted his holiness Dr. Wakina via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com, he mentioned and exposed everyone involved and how they used charms to control him, changing his mind in every plans that involved me. I wondered why I’m being hated by them. Holy Father told me not to worry and promised to cast the best spell for me. The spell took him 24hours to complete and my BF came back within 48hours after the spell was cast, my BF begged for second chance and admitting being controlled by his family. Am so happy for this miraculous work from dr. wakina. You can email him for solution via his working email: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com
