Pentagon leaders say Russia is keeping up its military support for the Syrian regime despite pledging to withdraw forces from the country and help peacefully resolve its civil war. "I've not seen a significant reduction of forces by the Russians, nor have I seen less support for the regime than there was before they announced that reduction," Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday. "As I look at it, despite some rotation of forces and so forth, it seems to be pretty much status quo today relative to before the announcement.""It was far from a complete withdrawal, despite how it was ballyhooed," added Defense Secretary Ash Carter, who also testified. Last September, Russia sent forces into Syria to support the regime despite U.S. warnings not to intervene on Syrian President Bashar Assad's behalf against Western-backed rebels. After a bombing campaign against the rebels that shored up Assad and a United Nations-brokered ceasefire, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on March 15 that Russian forces would begin withdrawing from Syria. U.S. officials also began to mute their criticism of Russia's intervention in Syria amid peace talks backed Washington and Moscow. Senators from both sides of the aisle at the hearing expressed concern over Russia's continued support for Assad, as the ceasefire now appears on the verge of collapse. The thing is that Assad kept those people who are ISIS under control, before US intervention in Syria to oust the leader who Obama thinks commits mass murder of his people. The people who Assad took down and killed in Syria, are the very same people who the world sees as ISIS fighters. Let's not forget while the Pentagon says this, that the Pentagon supports "moderate rebels" with American weapons who end up being ISIS fighters down the road. Assad killed off the evil who were up and coming ISIS fighters in Syria. Assad does not kill peaceful citizens in Syria. Don't let the Pentagon foil you into this plot that Russia backs a dictator in Syria who protects his people from the evil that exist in his country. This is nothing but a way to brainwash America into thinking Putin and Russia is somehow this evil entity, when our government want's to hide the fact that fighters they supply in Syria with weapons are the genocidal Islamic group known as ISIS.
