Monday’s U.N. speeches by our Dear Reader and Vladimir Putin shined a bright a depressing light on an obvious truth: Putin has sized Obama up, and he’s come to several conclusions; specifically,
Obama’s status as a radical leftist, hellbent on payback to imperialistic, racist Amerika makes him prone to believe that our magnificent country is a force for evil in the world, and we need to stop intervening in places like the Middle East, which opens up a perfect power vacuum that he is more than eager to fill.
This man-child, a completely unaccomplished empty suit, a refugee from the faculty lounge and a Chicago street corner can be had.
The time to strike is now. And so he is:
Russia has conducted its first airstrike in Syria, near the city of Homs, a senior U.S. official told CNN on Wednesday .
The Russians told the United States that it should not fly U.S. warplanes in Syria, but gave no geographical information about where Russia planned to strike. The senior official said U.S. missions are continuing as normal.
Earlier Wednesday, the upper house of the Russian parliament gave President Vladimir Putin approval to use the air force in Syria, according to state media.
Don’t kid yourself that this Russian intervention is about ISIS. It’s about Putin getting a major foothold in the Middle East, as part of bringing back the Russian empire and keep Bashar Assad in power.
