This much is clear in Syria: There is no good solution.Russian airstrikes have been concentrated on targets around the cities of Idlib, Homs and Hama – areas where, according to independent observers, jihad watchers, and other groups that scrutinize the videos placed online by the Russian authorities themselves, ISIS is not established. One might argue that the past is past and that, in view of the general disaster in Syria, Russia's intervention will at least have the benefit of halting the country's free fall.Can anyone believe, even fleetingly, that Russia's intervention will lessen, rather than aggravate, Syria's refugee crisis?Nor is Putin shy about his intentions in Syria.But ISIS has not, unbeknown to everyone but Putin, acquired an air force that needs to be neutralized. Let us not pretend that Russia's military operations, which, to date, have been aimed solely at providing Russia with mastery over Syrian airspace and protecting its interests on the ground, are bolstering efforts to defeat the ISIS.Europeans must wake up to Putin's design before it is too late.
