Russia's Most Syrian Adventure #25

Russia claims to have conducted 2084 airstrikes since starting the fight a month and change ago.  Strangely though, what I have been able to find, the Russians only hit 24 targets in the last 24 hours.  However, the targets were supposedly given to them by the nonIS, non Nusra rebels.

To me at least, the claim by Russian sources that the US and Russian air forces conducted a joint training exercise in Syria is explosive.  The US military has confirmed.  I feel sick.

Russia states, officially at least, it does not care if Assad stays in power, but peace through talks is.  That's why they are more than willing to bomb any and all enemies of Assad because it doesn't matter who is in charge so long as its Assad.

Update:  Whoops!  I left out the Sinai airliner crash.  Truth be told, I am not sure this ought to count in here, but ok.

An American observation satellite (aka spysat) seems to have caught the moment when the airliner broke up.  There seems to have been an explosion caught in the IR.

The Russians stated whatever happened to the airliner, it is not what ought to help decide their policy in Syria.
