The clever men in Oxford know all there is to be knowed

The journalists, the neo cons, McCain, Graham, Hillary, the American deep state etc were wrong and the Syrian government has won, finally defeating ISIS. And better it did, absolutely ghastly though it is, than the rebels. I predicted this as soon as Russia intervened and welcomed it. Everyone said I was wrong. Obama thought it would be Russia's Vietnam.

What to remember is not to trust the press for insights into what is happening. Donald Trump's biggest achievement may be to make everyone realise that the press is a political actor, not an objective source of information.
