Russia has begun bombing ISIS, and allegedly non-ISIS, targets in Syria. (Latest news is that China is sending troops to Syria.) Recently, Putin dedicated the completion of a large mosque in Moscow. Bananaland, aka America, and President Butt Naked are left on the sidelines, impotent and literally watching US global military hegemony get stripped away.
All these things are connected. Putin is making a move to establish Russian dominance in the Middle East, and the fanfare over his Moscow mosque, timed perfectly just prior to Russian airstrikes in Syria against radical Muslims, should be seen as a symbolic, preemptive sop to moderate Muslims, giving Russia more leeway to do as she pleases in Syria and dampening potential Muslim ire within Russian borders.
Gas pipelines, US isolation, and lunatic Islamist containment are likely Russia’s goals (among other more opaque considerations).
Russians are not Westerners. Putin may be a borderline psychopath, and as ex-KGB he’s certainly got the killer’s instinct. It’s best to approach Russian machinations with a healthy skepticism (unlike how our media and elite have approached the fake story of Ahmud the clock boy). But whatever Russia does, as long as it fucks the shit up of the rootless globalist elite running America and Western Europe, I am all-in on Putin, and hope he is successful in his project of diminishing the geopolitical influence of the United States of Poz.
