The crisis is Syria only continues to take on new bad turns. While the U.S. and Russia both agree on the urgency to combat ISIS, Russia only continues to use their bases to prop up the Assad regime and to bomb U.S. backed Syrian rebels opposed to the Assad regime. With U.S. military aid provided by the CIA, the U.S. backed rebels are now using American-made TOW anti-tank missiles against Russian tanks, only furthering a dangerous proxy war by U.S. backed forces engaging Russian forces in conventional warfare. On Friday, one group of Syrian rebels released a new video of a U.S. made TOW missile striking a Russian tank and an apparent Russian soldier jumping from the damaged tank.
The first shots in WWIII?
