JERUSALEM, Israel As Russian forces conduct a major military exercise this week in northwestern Belarus, one man has ominous words to describe the latest global aggression directed by President Vladimir Putin. After 16 years of writing about radical Islam Im personally convinced that Vladimir Putin is more dangerous than radical Islam, Joel Rosenberg, bestselling author of numerous books on radical Islam and the Islamic State, told Breitbart News.
Dubbed Zapad or West 2017, its the latest edition of a quadrennial large-scale drill that was once a key mobilization for the Soviet Union and its allies in the Warsaw Pact, the Washington Post reported. This year, only the forces of Russia and Belarus are involved, but given the tensions surrounding Moscows relations with Europe and the United States, its no surprise the exercise is being treated as a momentous geopolitical act.
Ironically, the Posts reporting on Russias move seems to praise the Communist dictator, saying The exercises will show off a military that has been transformed under President Vladimir Putin into an effective force that has deployed to Syria and Ukraine in recent years."

Interesting how Dems/leftists didn’t have this point of view when Obama was President. Putin somehow magically changed between then and now.
What an idiot. Putin is neither Communist nor a dictator. Russia itself is nowhere close to Communist and hasnt been for a very long time. Fake news.
Go away and write fiction; you are very good at that.
When we start seeing Russian Orthodox suicide bombers declaring their allegiance to Putin before blowing up a bunch of civilians in the US or Western Europe, Rosenberg will have a point.
Putin is not eager to commit suicide. Putin is not focused on getting his 72 virgins. Putin could blow up the world, but he has enough sense not to do it.
Islam is actively trying to destroy everything and kill everybody. And they are all about the nukes.
Neocons are the biggest fags on the planet.
Enemies within are worth many enemies without. Too bad this impulsive individual doesnt heed that wise council.
Another globalist/nanny-stater who wants war with Russia.
The Soviet Union pushed a globalist ideology. Even if a twisted one, it provided a common thread among Marxist revolutionary movements around the world. The Soviet Union is gone.
Russia’s new ideology is inward: Russian nationalism, historic Christianity, and Russia’s own power. Its simply gone back to 19th century European power politics.
It is the USA’s neocons/progressives who now have the globalist ideology - open borders, atheism/secularism, global finance, diluting cultures in a stew pot of consumerism and progressive values.
I meant Joel Rosenberg.
In 2008 Hiltery Rotten Clinton reset relations with Russia and in 2012 Obama scoffed at the notion that Russia posed any threat.
“Interesting how Dems/leftists didnt have this point of view when Obama was President. Putin somehow magically changed between then and now.”
Thats why I am skeptical when I see headlines like these. Did these people suddenly just wake up? Magically, as you put it...
... or did agendas and talking points change.
I’m not apologist for Putin. I haven’t really studied up on him. For all I know he will start WWIII... or he could be an awesome and totally misrepresented guy. It’s probably somewhere far in the middle.
But it’s just odd how things seem to turn on a dime... ‘magically’
Yes, and I remember Obama making fun of Romney for thinking that Russia was one of our biggest foreign threats.
Well Ok. Since he’s an expert....
In think the lunatics in change have decided they can engineer and conduct a non-nuclear military fight with Russia, teach them a lesson, and establish unquestioned worldwide dominance.
They are going to get us nuked. Its an absolute article of faith in Russia that there will never be another war where an enemy physically destroys Russia and doesn’t get their homeland destroyed in immediate retaliation.
These are dangerous times.
Obama and Clinton practically sold America out to Russia and the left did NOTHING. My opinion is that ANY Russian tampering within America was met with a blind eye or complicity. Now they want to bring about a “red scare” that the left had howled about since McCarthy.
And anyway, IF Russia helped defeat Hillary in any way, that was an act of friendship and compassion to America.
My lib friends think the FB ads are what did it
They also think being mad about NFL racists is much ado
They are big dopes politically
Or so he says. An airplane did crash into the White House in 1994. In March of 2001, the TV show The Lone Gunmen featured an attempt to fly a commercial aircraft into the World Trade Center. So maybe Rosenberg isn't that much of a prophet.
So I go back to my premise: Vladimir Putin is more dangerous than radical Islam, Rosenberg said, adding that Americans better wake up before its too late. Putin is the greatest geo-political threat that the West faces, Rosenberg said.
Mitt Romney thanks you, Joel, and maybe he'll send you chocolates or something. But seriously, as bad as Putin is, he's not "irrational," that is to say, he calculates probable gains and losses and isn't trying to bring about the apocalypse. He's probing for Western weaknesses, but he's not going to destroy our cities any time soon.
