- In The Now video (14 Oct 2015) – U.S. slams Russia ISIS strikes while dropping less bombs on terror group in Syria:
In The Now is an RT (Russia Today) programme.
It is not exactly clear exactly how many strikes the Russian’s have targeted purely on IS as they seem to class other fundamentalist groups as IS also.
Also comparing stats from 2003 is not really accurate, IS have learned a lot in avoiding airstrikes from the Iraq war.
The US are targeting groups in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, and Yemen for example so this has to be taken into consideration also.
Edward Snowden’s releases regarding ‘The Hornets Nest’ are interesting though.
