You have to give it to the Russians - the understand terrorism much better. Iraq makes their job harder. They new it would turn into a tug nest in the interim.

Do you mean that they would have had less killing and fewer massacres recently had the war in Iraq not happened? Do you mean that they "knew" our war efforts would bring more trouble for them?

Yes, of course. That is why USA under Reagan together with Soviet Union supported Saddam Hussein. He was a bulwark against Islamic extremism. Now he is gone and another dam is broken. (The previous dam against radical Islam was Yugoslavia which was destroyed under Clinton.)
