Syria is a dogs breakfast and maybe if Putin would have invaded earlier he might have done some good. However, Putin or no Putin Damascus will be totally destroyed in the end.

Russia’s friend Assad can stop the proposed natural gas pipeline from running through Syria into Turkey and Europe. That pipeline could eliminate Russia’s energy stranglehold on those countries. Forget religion, morality or nationalism. It’s about money.

1953 Iranian coup d’état
1954 Guatemalan coup d’état
1959 Tibetan uprising
1961 Cuba, Bay of Pigs Invasion
1964 Brazilian coup d’état
1973 Chilean coup d’état
1976 Argentine coup d’état
1979–89 Afghanistan, Operation Cyclone
1980 Turkish coup d’état
1981–87 Nicaragua, Contras
2013- Syria
And I didn’t include the admitted Nuland fiasco of admitting they financed the overthrow of the Ukraine.
It’s just possible the paranoia is correct.

– take off the tin hat – perhaps russians came to our town, but not the ones you’re referring to :)
You might look up the most endorsed comments on BBC’ article on the issue from yesterday. All 50 or so of them with tens of thousands of endorsements. I doubt one could put that many people in same flat. As one commenter wrote there, “anybody with half a brain or more can see things for what they are”. And you do not have to be russian for that :)

This is simple when one sees catastrophal results of the US playing role of global policeman treating the world as its own backyard. Now when many millions are leaving creating humanitarian inferno its time to act. One can wonder why Russia has not acted before. The answer is also simple: Earlier there would be condemnations of “aggressive” Russia. Now when the collapse of US policy is evident nobody dares to tell this (with the exception of Kiev lunatics).

They don’t make hard. Every option article has the same handles posting pro-Russian dribble. Its one thing to invite comments but its another not to moderate them properly so voices have equal chance of being read.

I am guessing that if you trace the IP Addresses back to their source you have most of these “people” somehow sharing the same flat in some Russian town.

I am not talking about censoring people’s views. Moderating them and punishing abuse though would be a nice courtesy to your other readers.
