  • The Coming Israeli-Russian War?
    • Vietnam didn't hold much interest for the USA either..no oil..not much manufacturing..few natural resources etc. the main value of Syria to the Russians is as a stopping point for US-Israeli-Nato hegemonism. It's the same situation with Hezbollah..they realized that they had two choices; they could fight Salafist-Wahabism when it came knocking on their back door in Lebanon, which would be strategically restrictive, or they could fight them in Syria, keeping the fight at a distance and providing a defence in depth through Syria..

    • Putin IS Russia...

    • Nap, you are implying that Putin is basically mercenary in political persuasion. From all accounts and biographies of the man, he is not that kind of political leader. One of Putin's trademark characteristics is a willingness to stand his ground, when circumstances seem to be against him. He is old school and retains a high sense of honor..unusual for any politician these days. Despite his tendency towards 'benevolent' authoritarianism in his home country of Russia, he is a man who stands his ground, as proven during the KGB office protest confrontation in East Berlin just after the collapse of the former Soviet Union, the Anatoly Sobchak airport confrontation and several more. The danger of Israel threatening Russia at this poignant time in world affairs, is that they are threatening a man who doesn't take threats very lightly. Putin will respond with fury if any Russian missile technicians are killed by Israel during the set up and training of Syrian missile crews. Israel must be extremely careful as the Russian bear will respond with violence to any perceived assault on its integrity...
