Russia accuses US of ‘pretending’ to fight Isis

The Independent Online



The Pentagon has dismissed Russian allegations that the US is only “pretending” to fight Isis in Iraq as a “ridiculous” Russian propaganda campaign.


A statement from the Russian Defence Ministry on Tuesday claimed that the US has deliberately slowed the pace of its assault on Isis in Iraq in order to divert militants to the front line in the Russian-backed Syrian army fight for Deir Ezzor over the border.

  1. There are many News items from various sources that the US permits ‘daesh’ (IS) fighters to leave, there are even News items that daesh leaders were evacuated by US helicopters. And a US general is on record to have said ‘it is not in our interest that ‘IS’ should be totally defeated’.
