Russia is looking into furthering its military support of the leader of Syria, who is fighting ISIS.
These are the two main sides of the war – fundamentalist Jihadi rebels (such as ISIS) on one side, and Bashar al-Assad (the ruler of Syria) on the other.
The U.S. wants to support “moderate” rebels, who are supposedly against both Assad and ISIS, creating a 3-way war.
A 3-way war is an interesting concept. How is this working out in real life?
