air strike

Listening to Obama attempting to explain the current situation in Syria, one immediately understands just how inept he must seem to both Russia and now China, in that they’ve both simply dismissed him as a potential adversary.

Incredibly within less than a week Russia has pushed America aside and has taken over the military campaign against ISIS in Syria, leaving Obama in a state of utter confusion.

And apparently the Chinese have also taken notice of Obama’s retreat and have joined Russia in their air campaign against ISIS.

The Chinese J-15 warplanes took off from the Chinese Liaoning-CV-16 aircraft carrier, and reached Syrian shores on September 26th.

This will be a landmark event for Beijing: its first military operation in the Middle East as well the carrier’s first taste of action in conditions of real combat.

Moreover Russia’s military intervention in Syria has expanded radically within the region and aside from China joining with Moscow to defeat ISIS, Baghdad has offered Moscow an air base for targeting the Islamic State now occupying large swathes of Iraqi territory.

What is apparent is that America is no longer in the equation, and the balance of power within the Middle East has radically shifted in favor of this unholy alliance between Russia and China, and our strategic foothold within this important part of the world has apparently all but evaporated.
