Putin has consistently said he does not want terrorists coming back into Russia and the Syrian country will not be partitioned. Kudos to Assad for protecting the Christian minorities in his country.

Amusing fact, ISIS founder Zarqawi hid in Iran before being smuggled in Iraq by Soleimani’s IRGC Quds-Force.
This absolutely disgusting strategy only the most vile imperialists in history used is nothing new : the oldest record I know about was done by Alexander the Great.
This is how snakes and cowards manage to build empires and manage to look like heroes while they are the real warmongers.
Problem : if ever it goes public or your enemies end to learn about your strategy, it seriously blows back and the instigators will be cursed eternally for what they are : traitors and despicable snakes.
