We have always been aligned with Turkey. They are in our pact with Nato, the only Muslim Nation we are aligned with. This is the first I have ever heard we are now aligning with Syria? Russia has always protected Syria. We have never aligned with Syria. OBAMA EMPTIED Syria, sent those Citizens to western cultured countries, Sweden German France, Poland, Italy, Great Britian. It was said way back, Obama wants to return those people back to their home Country but needs to get Assad out of Syria.
