The Syrian Gambit

Is Russia now quietly asserting itself as the savior of western civilization in a post-Obama era of sensible, practical realism?

To quote a very well known Russian: "May God prosper this undertaking ..."

There are times when ideological and national differences surely must become insignificant compared to the difference between common sense and utter nonsense.

Kudos to Vladimir Putin, for understanding and acting upon that difference. He is a competent and decisive leader who sees clearly and is not afraid to act. Hopefully some easing of the terror in Syria will result from this.
