    I was watching some news on TV and they gave a breaking story that revealed Putin knew that Assad was going to use WMD's and did nothing to stop it.

    If this is true, what now?

    Should Russia be labeled a terrorist state along with Syria and Iran by the UN?

    "The U.S. has been focusing its military action in Syria on defeating the Islamic State group."

    After all this time it is evidently not going to plan. What the US is mainly supporting is Jihadi rivals to Islamic State.

    Many ignorant Westerners vastly overestimate the size of China's People's Liberation Army.
    In proportion to its national population, the PLA's much smaller than, say, the IDF (Israel Defence Forces).

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/People%27s_Liberation_Army

    "The PLA is the world's largest military force, with a strength of approximately 2,285,000 personnel,
    0.18% of the country's population. In September 2015, Xi Jinping, the General Secretary of
    the Communist Party of China and the commander-in-chief of the PLA, announced a
    reduction of the number of military personnel by 300,000."

    "Conscription Compulsory by law, but never enforced
    Active personnel 2,300,000 active (2017)
    Reserve personnel 510,000 reserve (2017)[1]"

    The short answer is "YES" Putin knew in advance. We have to remember though, IT'S ALL OBAMA's FAULT

    I would add that many racist Westerners prefer to believe known falsehoods rather than facts about China.
