So you’ve got Iranian ground forces supported by Russian bombers and some special forces. What’s next? Bombs in Moscow and Tehran? What if the Axis loses, in other words? AQ and ISIS fight well and are smart…don’t assume Putin has a free hand just because America is absent. Islamists beat the USSR after all, and the foreign assistance they are getting nowadays may be on a par with what they got back then.
Life is full of surprises.
