Russia and other countries have raised questions about the legitimacy of the US role in the Syrian civil war. Most recently, the downing of a Syrian Su-22 plane, an act that directly aided Islamic State, provoked the Russian deputy foreign minister to denounce the US posture in Syria as possibly contrary to international law. National security analyst Gareth Porter explains to RT America’s Natasha Sweatte why he believes the US made a “fundamental miscalculation” by using its belligerence toward Syria as a threat Russia and its allies in the region.
