A new era in international politics is emerging as Russia comes into the Middle East theater for the first time in decades. For the second day in a row, Russian jets struck terrorist targets in northwest Syria, hitting the areas of Jisr al-Shughour and Jabal al-Zawiya. These two areas have been under the control of Jaish al-Fatah, the Army of Conquest, which includes factions of al-Nusra and is thus a wing of al-Qaeda. The Syrian Al-Fatah is technically on the US list of terrorist organizations, yet it is being supported by Turkey and Qatar, allegedly members of the US led anti-ISIS coalition.  The message of the NATO nations now appears to be that all attacks against ISIS are acceptable, but all attacks against al-Qaeda are abhorrent. The idea of the US shielding al-Qaeda will undoubtedly come as a surprise to the three thousand US victim’s families who have been made to believe that al-Qaeda was responsible for the attacks of 9/11.
The crazed booster of terrorists in Syria, John McCain, has been foaming at the mouth after the latest Russian air strikes, claiming they have killed the so-called moderate terrorist rebels of the “Free Syrian Army.” McCain told CNN:
“Their initial strikes were against the individuals and groups that have been funded and trained by our CIA in an incredible flaunting of any kind of cooperation or effort to conceal what Putin’s first priority is, and that is of course to prop up Bashar al-Assad...I can absolutely confirm to you that they were strikes against the Free Syrian Army or groups that have been armed and trained by the CIA because we have communication with people there…this is an Orwellian experience.” 
What is truly Orwellian is McCain’s warmongering hypocrisy. McCain has met with the nominal Caliph of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the kidnapper Mohammad Nour of al-Nusra, and the infamous cannibal of the Syrian opposition forces, in a secret and illegal meeting in 2013.  McCain’s lunatic television speech, in which he slanders the Russian fight against terrorism, should be enough to get him arrested for treason and is an insult to all Americans.
International reporting agencies are also raising the possibility of a renewed assault against terrorism by a coalition of Iran, Hezbollah, and Syrian ground forces and Russian airstrikes. Reuters reports that Hezbollah and Iranian forces and equipment are massing in Syria. Shiite militia forces from Iraq are also reportedly joining the ground offensive; these ground forces would also be covered by Russian air support. 
While these reports must be taken with a slight grain of uncertainty, it is not out of the realm of possibility that this coalition could be forming and preparing an attack against ISIS and their terrorist associates. It is nevertheless incontrovertibly true that the fight against terrorism in the Middle East is changing rapidly and drastically. The US must now face the certainty of a newly forming, multipolar, and collaborative world that is no longer ruled by the megalomaniacs of the neocon warmonger faction.
