Finian Cunningham, a British freelance journalist working on international affairs, spoke to Sputnik in an exclusive interview saying that the US move is not aimed to counter ISIL, but rather restrict Russiaâs air operations against the jihadist group.
âIt would be a complete violation of the international law if the US sends its troops into Syria no matter what number of troops,â Cunningham said.
Talking about the real purpose of this mission he said, âI am very skeptical about it just like the yearlong air campaign that the US led coalition has allegedly been running to defeat ISIL. That was completely ineffective and sending troops in there to fight ISIL, I just donât buy it.â

With the airliner bombing, Putin will now be going after ISIS....EFFECTIVELY!!!!
Which really screws up Bambi’s plans to muddle and accomplish NOTHING!!!
He is correct, thoughWe are supporting the insurgents the Russians are fighting against. It appears this administration want a direct confrontation with Russia
Where are all those anti-war demonstrators that march in NYC and places like that? I guess liberals putting troops on the ground is fine with them.
Who controls Sputnick?
Still, with obama in charge, anything that risks America is on the table.
The Iraqis have busted obama big time
Have discovered the level of US betrayal goes beyond feeding and arming ISIL to giving them intelligence on Iraqi army plans
That won’t sit well with Iraqis who have seen their relatives friends and neighbors tortured and beheaded
Obuma hasn't got the moral attitude to confront Putin, he hides behind his muslim brotherhood buddies, and if he thinks that Putin is going to ‘be afraid of him’ I can see Putin having a good belly laugh over that one...
‘The line in the sand’ lol what a joke, and what is the saddest part of this whole thing, is America is being portrayed as stupid as he is....
Sad day for America when Putin is doing the job that America could have done with the right leader...
Liberals only kill people because they like them.
Any DemoRat war is a good war, donchaknow!
Republicans like Reagan are warmongers, cowboys, and megalomaniacs for winning 'em, especially when they don't fire a shot.
Good thing there are no more Republicans like Reagan.
Obama isn't interested in killing barbaric muslim extremist.
What is ODumbo’s plan though? I hate to say this because it would be giving him WAY WAY WAY too much credit and insight. But why does Obama help ISIS and at the same time help Iran?
It doesn’t make sense at all... unless he’s trying to establish a counter to Iran by building up the Sunil Muslims in ISIS. We lost this when Saddam fell.
Personally I think Odumbo is just so stupid he doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing other than helping out his brothers that share the same faith.
“With the airliner bombing, Putin will now be going after ISIS....EFFECTIVELY!!!!”
The Russians hit Raqqa HARD this morning, with the twitterverse reporting over 25 different airstrikes.
We have FAR more assets in the area than the Russians do, and how many strikes have we done against Raqqa??
With Odumbo in the White House, ANY variety of idiocy is possible.
Yeah, and if our guys are between them it could spell trouble w/ a capital T.
Doesn't Obama understand that the chances of direct conflict between Russia and us is a real danger?
Bambi doesn’t care, as long as America loses.
Obama is either serving Saudi Sunnis or playing out some real personal inadequacy issues. Either way, he’s on his own, but trying to drag the rest of us along with him.
This is his `Arab Spring’. To h*** with him.
Looks like the Kenyan is fixing to lose his first proxy war.
When your goal is the destruction of The Great Satan, and having your praises sung in every mosque for a thousand years, that is a plus, not a minus.
And What a Putin Propaganda Bonanza if its determined
ISIS Took Down That Russian Plane w/ American Weaponry...
As FReeper Harley lady insightfully posted earlier WRT the State Dept's gun-running:
When Putin finds the arms that were sent from Venezuela to Benghazi to Syria to overthrow Assad, Putin should go to the Hague and demand they bring action against the Government of the United States...including every House and Senator and government official that was involved in this...
(And that goes for Obama and Hillary, as well.)
