20 civilians killed by Russian bombing yesterday. I sure hope RU military knows what they are doing!
I hate the "collateral damage" view of warfare, whether it's Russians, Americans, Israel or ISIS that's guilty....
Yesterday the criticism of Russia's participation also started in Western media.
Russia bombed the depots of some "moderate" (favoured by the US) rebels that were not necessarily ISIS.
Apparently some kit belonging to the US was damaged... hm.....? Chance or not?
If Russia is anything but extremely successful in this war, it will be villified!
Russia will be painted out as the bad guy.
I sure hope the RU military has a plan that will achieve a very quick and painless victory in this war.
I am really sceptic about whether it was really a good idea for Russia to get involved in this war!
EDIT: According to Lavrov and TASS, the claims that non-ISIS targets were bombed, is disinformation, unfounded...
Us normal mortals will never know the truth of course..... But it's interesting that the two parties in this "Alliance" are already throwing accusations at eachother...
Has Russia walked into a trap getting involved in this? All I can think of is how badly things went for the USSR in Afghanistan, and the propaganda value of making accusations towards Russia in connection with potential mistakes in warfare.
