Operations in Syria a haphazard act of revenge

In view of the French and Russian airstrikes in Syria, Johannes Kert, former commander of the Estonian air force, warns in the liberal daily Eesti Päevaleht of the dangers of emotionally driven military decisions: "The attacks by France and Russia smack of revenge. And even if the outcome is positive this will be a lengthy operation. … President Obama refuses to extend the deployment of US troops despite the terrorist attacks in Europe. It's clear to everyone that the Syrian territory can't be brought under control without ground troops. The area under the IS's control is as large as the UK. Controlling such a territory is a very serious military and also political challenge."
