Russia's Most Syrian Adventure #34

The Tu-160 went through a baptism of fire in Syria: it has never been used in combat before.

Latakia province, not Raqa.

I'm going to be sick: Obama is calling Putin a most constructive partner in Syria.

Putin has ordered the Russian cruiser Moskva to coordinate with the French aircraft carrier De Gaulle.  The Russians have stated they are developing joint ops with the French in general.

After a couple American A-10s destroyed over 100 oil trucks used by IS, the Russians have moved to hunting the same source of revenue.

Additionally, the Russians are targeting the infrastructure in IS territory.  This includes oil, but not exclusive to it.  The water treatment plant in Aleppo was blown away too.

Wow. How is it that Putin is so good at getting our President to eat out of his hand? At every turn, it seems he's been running rings around Obama, and sometimes not even seemingly intentionally. I think he's realized this and started to exploit it.
