    Oh, Russia please seal-off all Syrian border and shield Syrian airspace from any external provocation. These retard countries need to be ‘teach’ for breaching international law. Iraqis know that, they will not forget 2003 invasion. Without two thing above, you cannot deal with terrorist together with their backers.
