Russia and the United States are backing opposing sides in the ongoing Syrian Civil War. The issues in the Middle East are more complex than most Americans realize. Dr. Michael Youssef of the Leading the Way ministry appeared on "Dana" to help Lawrence Jones, filling in for Dana Loesch, make sense of the tensions in the area.
Dr. Youssef asserted that "because the Obama administration sided with Iran, we got into the mess that we're in." He also explained that Russia has always wanted a warm water base, so when the previous administration pulled out, they filled the void. He hoped President Donald Trump will support the Syrian Kurds, who, he says, are fighting Islamization and "have proven to be a reliable ally" in the region
