Thanks to Russia's military might, but also to the weakness of the rebel allies, the Russians have successfully quelled the revolt against Assad. U.S. President Donald Trump's decision last month to discontinue the assistance the CIA provided the Syrian rebels completed the picture. Trump claims, rightly, that the American administration had wasted the money, having seen no results. In many instances the aid reached the wrong hands, or even ended up with groups that would change alliances and join up with ISIS or the Nusra Front.
