Russian has always had a toehold in the Middle East. It used to be Egypt
Russia couldn’t have become a dominant player without Obama’s feckless “leadership”.
This should put an end to those scurrilous accusations that Obama hasn’t accomplished anything in the mideast.
“President Barack Obamas abysmal failure to provide leadership during the Syrian crisis represents a turning point in the Middle East and has paved the way for President Vladimir Putins Russia to emerge as the dominant regional force”
I’m all for whatever this posuer tries to accomplish and in the process demonstrates his amatuerism and idiocy.
Putin has a for real stake in this showdown. He really NEEDS to keep Assad in power. For whatever its worth, Assad keeps the lunatic mudslimz in check. Putin KNOWS that.
Russia is in a day to day conflict with mudslimes. Russia KNOWS that a dictator in your pocket is far better than izlamic rabble running loose in your backyard.
Just my HO. There is a for real shooting war still going on in Chechnya. It isn’t reported much. But Russians are on the front line with izslam.
Putin’s taking control of this debacle, and I mean DEBACLE! should be embraced.
“A Monkey With A Hand Grenade!”
Sometimes the Russians know how to call a “spade” a “spade.”
Disclosure: I like Vlad (Pooty Poot,) he really is the only ADULT in the room.
And that comes from an old “cold warrior’s” point of view.
If America can be an influence, why shouldn’t other countries?
sorry your server is stuck
The Israelis will have to decide whether having the UN oversee the removal of tons of chemical weapons from the conflict zone in Syria is in their national security interest, even if it means Pres. Assad retains power in his own country.
I’ll say this much for Putin and for Russia — they understand why Islam is dangerous.
I wish I could say that about our current president.
All of our naval assets in the world mean nothing when they are led by a coward like Zero.
