ISIS is toast. You read it here last. 224 dead Russians can’t be wrong. And no, the end won’t be some nonsensical apocalypse out of Mohammed’s collection of plagiarized fairy tales, aka the Koran, it will be over who controls the oil and gas in the area. Something the Russians care about more than revenge.
Russia is now in a race to control the new proposed natural gas lines from Iran and the Persian Gulf. The fact that these pipeline routes are temporarily blocked by a 7th Century Apocalyptic Death Cult and their supporters in Turkey is a golden opportunity for Russia to seize them. A veritable gift from Allah. Russia has wanted to roll over Turkey since the Crimean War. What better time than now ?
But you already knew about that. Right ?
Not only does Russia want to control the oil and gas in the region, it wants to make sure the gas pipelines do not go through Turkey. So it has provoked Turkey. who have backed Syrian rebels – including ISIS – that oppose Assad, Russia’s key ally in the Syrian gas pipeline war.
ISIS could now face elimination from hundreds of thousands of Russian troops
