Assad Regime to World: You Must Deal with US
More evidence, if any were needed, that the Russian sponsored UN Resolution purportedly aimed at cutting into ISIS' funding is really little more than a Russian inspired effort to help buttress Putin's ally, Assad. As far as the Assad regime sees it, the resolution supports its claims to any artifacts that are seized, and helps undercut Turkey, its former friend. Never mind that Assad's military stands accused of involvement in looting sites like Apamea and Palmyra, and bombing early Sunni religious sites into oblivion.
