It’s a shocking day to be an American when you are actually rooting for Russia as the good guys. Gone are the days of Rocky IV, wheres its East vs. West and American pride vs. Soviet Communism. The entire world, and our morale compasses, have been turned upside in the past 7 1/2 years, which I don’t believe is a coincidence. If you’re an American, wouldn’t you have expected to hear a long time ago that we are sending our best ship and fighters to wipe out ISIS once and for all?
I have no qualms with Russia expended the resources to destroy a violent, barbaric radical Islamist terrorist group, but you would have thought – especially after the Orlando shooting – that America would be all hands on deck to wipe ISIS off the face of the Earth. Instead it seems our politicians are all hands on deck to pass useless anti-gun legislation that only impacts law abiding citizens.

President authorises navy ship to transport 30 fighter jets & attack choppers to the Med in bid to rid the world of death cult
VLADIMIR Putin is to send Russia’s largest battleship to Syria in a bid to crush ISIS once and for all.
The Russian president is to dispatch the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier plus 30 jet fighters and attack helicopters to the war-torn country in an attempt to destroy the terror group for good.
The Kremlin strongman’s decision came in the wake of ISIS atrocities in Bangladesh – where it murdered 2o hostages in a restaurant in the capital Dhaka – and Baghdad, Iraq, where a car bomb killed 125 shoppers.
The 55,000 tonne ship will be deployed in the region from October until January, a military source informed TASS.
The vessel is expected to arrive in the Med this Autumn, where it will liaise with land-based Russian forces already deployed in the region.
The Admiral Kuznetsov will be packed with warplanes and attack choppers.
