Cue soundtrack: Revvin’ up your engine, Listen to her howlin’ roar

According to reports this morning, Russian bombers are now flying sorties against ISIS targets inside of Syria from air bases in Iran:

Exit question: How does our NATO ally Turkey feel about this?

Exit question 2: How does the new Iran-Russia partnership affect Donald Trump’s view of Russia? From his speech on fighting radical Islam yesterday:

I also believe that we could find common ground with Russia in the
fight against ISIS. They too have much at stake in the outcome in Syria,
and have had their own battles with Islamic terrorism.


All actions should be oriented around this goal, and any country which
shares this goal will be our ally. We cannot always choose our friends,
but we can never fail to recognize our enemies.
