The international community should prevent terrorists from moving to other countries after their defeat in Syria and Iraq, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after talks with his Iraqi counterpart Ibrahim al-Jaafari on Monday.

Lavrov said the sides discussed the situation in the Middle East and in the region in general, focusing on “stepping up efforts in the fight against international terrorism.” “Now the key forefront of this battle is ongoing in Iraq and neighboring Syria,” Lavrov said.

“The task of all participants of anti-terrorist steps is to defeat terrorist groups such as the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra (outlawed in Russia) and minimize, if not nullify, their chances of moving to other regions of the globe,” he said.

The initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin to create a global anti-terror coalition, based on mutual trust and without double standards, fully meets this task, Lavrov said.

“We support the efforts of the Iraqi government not only against terrorism, where serious success has been reached, but also in the context of normalizing the situation in the country through an inclusive dialogue of all ethnic and religious groups,” he said.

This will be a sensible move. The aim of every mil ops is to neutralize the enemy and make him unfit for further ops. These terrorists have played havoc in the countries they were in. Now they are on the run. What is required is to crush them not protect them. The ones caught have to be tried for war crimes. This nonsense has to be stopped unless we don’t want our world safe.

But also going after those funding them from the shadows,
e.g. Bandar and other rats.
And I don’t think using legal means is likely to succeed at this…
It’s unrealistic hoping to punish them all but a few serious figures who believe themselves sheltered and over any laws would make others think twice.
The main problem might be to make the action barely untraceable but when these will get that there might pay a serious price for their crimes despite their power…

Well, eliminating the funding of proxies and their sponsors source of income through quarantine of trade and drug trafficking of the sponsors will be the biggest contribution to this effort. Dismantle Madras’s spawning beds world wide is another.

SA oil can be replaced quite easily by other states and quite frankly if one goes after the desalination plants of those regimes it will have the needed effect for their demise. Treasure to be confiscated for reparation or destroyed as in the petrol dollar printing presses.
