I admire his patient and well calculated approach to almost everything he approaches. That being said I would definitely like to know where the intel came from that they are close to meeting any goals as this article would suggest. I would say any news or information coming from US intelligence is saying things are heating up and more is being done, they are years away from having this situation under control. What do you think? What is the talk in your country?

Putin says he’s intervening to prevent thousands of Russians now fighting for Islamic State from returning home and “continuing their evil doings.” He says the terrorist group can’t be defeated without the help of Assad’s military, which has lost control of about 80 percent of the country to jihadists and more moderate militias backed by countries including the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.
