(Worthy News) - After months of condemning Russia's military incursion into Syria as merely propping up a brutal regime, the Pentagon conceded on Tuesday that President Vladimir Putin’s air force has begun to strike the Islamic State terrorist army.
The Pentagon for months has accused Moscow of being disingenuous by saying it was attacking the Islamic State when in fact it was really bombing rebels opposed to President Bashar Assad.
On Tuesday Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said: “I think it’s being clear that they have focused more of their military attention on ISIL. We think that is a good thing. We encouraged that from the start. They said initially that their primary goal was to go after ISIL in Syria, and they’re doing so now.”
