According to Britain's Telegraph, in a recent report, the U.S. Tow antitank missiles that U.S. President Barack Obama sent in October to the Islamic Sunni fighters in Syria to use against the forces of the non-sectarian Shiite ruler there, Bashar al-Assad, have been so effective against Russia's forces that Assad had invited in, that Russia-- defending (upon Syria's legal request) President Assad's forces, and attacking the jihadists imported into Syria by the Saudis and the rest of the West -- is now being forced to send into the battle Russia's costly T-90 tanks, which are less vulnerable to America's missiles.
