    Is it me or is there barely any condemnation of these strikes? They've killed upwards of 1000 civilians with absolutely no care in the world of who dies and who doesn't. 1 in 3 of those they've killed are civilians!

    'Russian airstrikes in Syria have killed more than 1,000 civilians since they were launched almost four months ago, a monitoring organisation has said.

    The raids, which started on 30 September, have killed 1,015 civilians, including more than 200 children, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said on Wednesday.

    The group, which relies on a network of sources on the ground for its reports, said the strikes had also killed 893 Islamic State jihadis and 1,141 other opposition militants, including members of al-Qaida affiliate al-Nusra Front.'

    Tens of thousands of civilians are now also fleeing Aleppo because of Russia's policies and the thousands of sectarian Shia fighters who are known for extra judicial killings.

    Some of you might say they're fighting terrorists but when you actually look at it, they're a) barely fighting ISIS, b) fighting American / Gulf proxies in the region. Not to mention that the word terrorist means nothing and to them a terrorist is anyone against Bashar al Assad.

    Putin doesn't give a ****.
    did you not watch his interview on 60 mins before this happened?
    he supports the "legitimate government" and other than that ...does he really care? nah fam = he won't stop even if someone tells him to.


    actually maybe if Obama tells him to stop he might, apparently Putin's got the hots for Obama
