Vladimir Putin has asked the right question again: Who is pulling the strings?
We would like to know that too.
He might also have asked (if he hasn't already): Who benefits from the Paris horror?
Mr Putin also points out some facts which certain unnamed countries find inconvenient, namely: that ISIS is selling stolen oil at cut-rate prices to these unnamed countries who are, thereby, financing ISIS.
The US has supposedly been bombing ISIS for donkey's years but they always seemed to miss those convoys of ISIS oil. How odd.
