Coalition between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the President of the US Donald Trump could take place. The main goal of this partnership will be to end ISIS.
Speaking to Daily Star Online, British military chief Admiral Lord West, former First Sea Lord, predicted the US and Russia would have more joined-up thinking on defeating ISIS.
He said Trump would most likely lead the US to taking a step back over Syria – a war zone over which Barack Obama’s administration and the Kremlin have been at loggerheads over accusations of “war crimes”.
The Falklands War veteran envisioned Trump and Putin would find common ground and step up military operations against ISIS.
Trump had previously accused defeated rival of Hillary Clinton of being set to spark World War 3 over Syria.
Appearing at rallies before his election victory, Trump said Russia would be a valuable ally in busting ISIS.Speaking in Nevada, Trump said: “I will say if we get along with Russia and Russia went out with us and knocked the hell out of ISIS, that’s okay with me.”Russian bombing campaigns against the death cult have taken a back seat as the superpowers feuded over the Syrian Civil War – a confrontation politicians warned could spill out into “global war”.
Putin’s war fleet is currently lingering off Syria amid fears it could launch a crushing offensive on devastated city Aleppo, but the Kremlin insists the five warship and three submarine-strong battle group is going to tackle ISIS.
