    Well-known British journalist Neil Clark said he simply doesn’t understand the logic of Western governments when comes to their Syrian policies.

    In particular, Clark is taken aback by Washington's accusations towards Russian airstrikes in Syria that target ISIL. How come the United States and its puppets are mad at Russia, meanwhile NATO forces regularly bombs other countries? Plus, shouldn't Russia and the United States be on the same page now, since they're fighting the same enemy in Syria?

    Clark said he is confused, and for good reason. First, the West says it fights Islamic extremism, while supporting the so-called "moderate" Islamic rebels in Syria. But at the same time, the West is preoccupied with the overthrow of the secular government of Bashar al-Assad. Talk about the two-faced nature of Western politics.

    "Let's reflect on this: West elites want us to hate Russia [because] it's fighting ISIS & al-Qaeda in Syria & supporting a government fighting those groups," Clark said.

    On September 30, Russia, acting on a request from Syrian President Bashar Assad, started launching surgical airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria by Sukhoi Su-25 ground attack planes, Su-24 and Su-34 bombers.
