Thank Heavens For Russia!



Now that the Syrian civil war is finally being somewhat portrayed in the US media as the sectarian civil war that it really is - not some struggle of freedom fighters of sterling reps - I think the world owes a debt of gratitude to Russia, who refused to be swept up in to dim-witted foreign policy of "Arab Springtime for Everyone" that pretty much defined US policy hitherto.

Even the USA is not infallible ( Really! I know it's hard to believe!), and it is a good idea to have a good friend to keep one on an even keel... and vice-versa.

It was Iraq madness, only it was restricted to the government and their media running dogs.

This time the people had learned to realize the government, even with the "best" intel trillions of dollars can buy, makes policy based on "What does Netanyahu say".
