Last few days have certainly been revealing to me. Russia has apparently done more to stop the so called, Isis machine, than the US.
I learned that Russia has only 2 military bases outside of their borders. The US has bases alll over the world. Russia's military spending is put at about 57 billion.
The States has 10 times the budget of Russia. Yep, 575 billion dollars.
Who looks like the aggresor in these stats?
Syria, is the plan. Assad is the obsticle. Isis are left alone virtually to run rough-shod over Syria, with hope of ousting Assad. Who is a thorn on the US plans
for a new pipeline that will run alternative to the one now. They believe this will ensure the US oil buckets will never empty.
With Assad out of the way, and a puppet Government installed, would give the US interests in the middle-east a HUGE boost.
It isn't as clear cut as Western leaders would have us believe. They're all basically serving themselves. Hidden agendas, chest thumping, and saber rattling doesn't work anymore.
Direct action does.
To think that we're always right and Russia is always wrong, is a nice polly-anna philosophy, but its terribly skewed.
I think the US should really be carefull the next election. Strengthen the things that remain.
