Russia has loudly entered the Syrian conflict, declaring its war on ISIS.
ISIS, the same bogeyman the western governments want us to be terrified of while ignore the butchery committed by Bashar al Assad.
This intervention has arrived at an opportune moment with the West wavering on who and where they want to fight and Turkey being in a state of flux due to inconclusive elections in June that have left the country in a situation where we are still waiting to see who holds the balance of power.
The Russian intervention could be a game changer, or it could simply only slow the collapse of teh Assad Regime.
The one thing the Russian intervention "against ISIS" has not done, is to actually attack ISIS.
