The Russian Marines have landed and it appears they're already engaging ISIS elements. This is to be expected. I hope that the Pentagon is talking to their Russian counterparts. Damn the politics, we don't need an incident here. Whether we like it or not we are fighting the same enemy...even if its for different reasons. We can take care of the "Assad" issue after we put a bunch of murderous savages in the ground.
Story here and here.
NOTE: This is why I ABSOLUTELY LOVE having readers in so many different countries. Its all about information flow. That is the source of power in the modern age. Getting info on a particular subject from a variety of sources can give you the REAL picture.
