Paul Craig Roberts - Diametrically opposed goals of Russia and the U.S. in Syria


In Syria, the goals of the United States and the goals of Russia are diametrically opposed.

The United States is not in Syria in order to combat ISIS, because ISIS is a tool used by Obama's administration to overthrow Bashar Al-Assad.

Therefore, the Russians have blocked the use of the tool for that purpose and this has made the situation in Syria a confrontation between the Russians and the United States.
