Al Arabiya: “Russian President Vladimir Putin and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi on Wednesday called for a coalition to combat terrorism in the Middle East.

Opening a meeting with Putin in Moscow, Sisi said “the Egyptian people” are hoping for broader ties with Russia in all areas, particularly in fighting terrorism in the Middle East.

Putin told reporters after the talks that regional powers should join their efforts to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group.”

Opinion: How nice. The Obama administration’s move to place the Muslim Brotherhood in power in Egypt was/is another disaster that Czar Putin is only too happy to exploit.

The stunning 4 minute video of Admiral Ace Lyons speaking at a private meeting in February this year, explains the failure of US Middle East policy from Jimmy Carter to Barack Obama to a tee.

The Admiral was introduced by none other than John Kerry. He probably regrets doing so.
