Russia Allies With France Against ISIS, Saying Jet That Crashed in Sinai Was Bombed
In a related move, President Obama said early Wednesday that he was open to cooperating with Russia in the campaign against the Islamic State, which has asserted responsibility for destroying the charter plane and for the deadly attacks in Paris on Friday, but only if the government of President Vladimir V. Putin begins targeting the militant group.
The timing of the Kremlin’s announcement on Tuesday, after France had already begun striking Islamic State targets and had called for a united front against the group, suggested that Russia was using the moment to help repair frayed relations with the West.
The Kremlin also announced that Mr. Putin and his French counterpart, François Hollande, had spoken by telephone, had agreed to coordinate military attacks in Syria and would meet on Nov. 26 in Moscow.
I don’t understand why Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Cuba and Syria didn’t team up over a decade ago. Maybe they still would have lost or maybe one of the world powers would have turned and they would have won.
I also don’t understand how over a century ago our ancestors let them get so much control? It’s impossible for them to get so much control without the leaders all over the world being “too nice” and letting them gain this control in some way or form. We easily could be living in a better world right now if our ancestors would have been more wise and did a better job of informing the people and shutting the banks out.
