With allaince of Syria, Putin will be able to give the Russians a warm water port into the Mediterranian. Military and trade will increase, gaining him power. With him flexing his powers, I think he could be preparing a start for another unwanted Cold War.

Money from control of trade routes and natural resources? a more secure throne within Russia? or is he just building an empire for empire’s sake?

No wonder Putin’s approach, after exercising an incredible amount patience with the Western approach, has proven to be more effective; and ultimately beneficial to the West, and the entire region. That’s why Iraq is considering inviting Russia to help in their battles with the Sunni psychos.
The main loser: Saudi Arabia and the Gulf State Monarchies.
Now, let’s talk about Yemen.

This well known proxy-war that was started by US and brought to meaningful conclusion in Ukraine by Russia and in the process toward such a conclusion in Syria, exemplify the leadership prowess and meticulous execution by Russia, while contrasting the the gross ineffectiveness of our long-drawn operations with no conclusive result. This calls for change at the top.

Forget about rational logic in Russia. There is no populace, only Putin and his worldwide network of thugs. Any attempt by the US govt to wait for Russian citizen revolt will fail. In this the article is exactly correct. A third of Russians feel respect for Joseph Stalin and 45 per cent believe his repressions were at least “to some extent” justified. Stalin was equal to the worst mass murderers in history and this insane view of reality is what makes Russia so dangerous.
Obama has completely underestimated the threat Putin and RUSSIA pose. Somebody please get a sane US policy toward Putin because he’s winning all his battles in case anyone hasn’t noticed.
