David Cameron, British Prime Minister, has added his lack of understanding regarding Russia and Syria to President Barack Obama’s. He chimed in with this:

NSS. He is indeed not interested in killing terrorists. He really is in Syria to prop up his client Bashar al Assad.
And there’s the usual timidity of these two “leaders:”
We should be using this moment now to try to force forward a comprehensive plan to bring political transition in Syria, because that is the answer to bringing peace to the region.
“This moment now” has lasted for four years. What is your comprehensive plan, exactly, now that it’s so thoroughly prepared over these four years?
