Our Russian allies. As trustworthy as Pakistan or Saudi Arabia.
“Russia is sending armed troops to Syria” because only a dumbass would send UNARMED troops. Geez, I hate the media.
Muslims killing Muslims killing Russians????
Where’s the downside?
“Our Russian allies.”
We do not have a treaty alliance with Russia so they are not our allies.
Putin has beaten Barack Hussein Kardashian to the punch. The punk with the prompter now CANNOT send troops to Syria without tangling with the Russians, and we KNOW the punk doesn't have the BALLS to do that.
The ENTIRE Middle East policy of this jerkwad is a disaster. He is a friend to NO ONE in that region, and has done untold damage to our reputation as an ally.
Iran and Syria have been able to count on Russia as an ally.
Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan and Israel have seen America (really, Obamugabe) as an UNRELIABLE ally.
Decades will be taken to repair the damage done by the punk in this region...globally, too. Consider: if Obamugabe so quickly threw our allies in these nations under the bus, why would ANYONE trust us for ANYTHING? He is a diplomatic septic tank.
Is this big? This seems big to me. Russian involvement seems big. I have a brother in Syria. I have to go take a shower.
We should send in Orville Redenbacher armed with popcorn. He’d be pretty busy with our allies!
Just in case anyone missed it, this is exactly the type of military adventurism that creeps up when you cut your own forces too much.
We can attribute this directly to Barack Obama’s failure as president, and the Republicans who let him get away with gutting our military.
We’re going to war, and I’m not talking about nations that don’t have nukes here.
The average U. S. Citizen doesn’t have a clue.
Exactly. Spengler’s recent column noted that this was a proxy war between Shia Islam and Sunni Islam. We want both sides to win. Any Russians are a bonus.
Arab Spring -> Arab Winter -> Cold War Redux -> ?
Remember when the Ruskies got to some important airport in former Yugoslavia first and General Weasel Clarke wanted to use force to kick them out until a British commander told Weasel that he would not allow him to start World War III.
Pristina Airport redux. Only thing missing is General Wesley Clark...
Good for the Russians. The Alawites in Syria protects the Christians. If the Alawites are overthrown, it’ll be open season on Christians in Syria.....
MSNBC certainly isnt talking about Hillay’s “Reset Button” with Russia much anymore.
My, it sure was easier to criticize Bush when the Left wasnt in power...
Who do we want to come out ahead in this battle?
The Almighty is about to press His reset button and than the SHTF for the false messiah and his minions.
Gee whats very close to Syria. Sounds almost biblical
