Yet many in the United States military are suspicious of Russia's role in Syria, with Moscow seen as seeking first and foremost to support and defend President Bashar al-Assad's regime. "They told us that victory is at hand and that God has sent the pig Trump as clear evidence of this", Abu Musab said.
