Comments on: When it comes to Vladimir Putin and Islamic State, trust but verify http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/11/18/when-it-comes-to-vladimir-putin-and-islamic-state-trust-but-verify/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Squeamish http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/11/18/when-it-comes-to-vladimir-putin-and-islamic-state-trust-but-verify/#comment-1119750 Mon, 23 Nov 2015 18:54:15 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=44923#comment-1119750 I always get a chuckle from Feifer’s “analyses”. So now we get this gem: “Putin’s backing of Assad only strengthens the figure most responsible for Islamic State’s prospering…” Just as Feifer notes that Republicans must always appose Obama, so Feifer must always find a way to oppose Putin, not matter how contorted/distorted the logic. Greg, I guess your family didn’t like the USSR, but your maniacal pursuit of revenge makes you a rather warped analyst.

And after Russians staerted bombing armed groups -volia, “moderate opposition” suddenly came into existence. Lies stink, and more and more americans are getting disgusted by that stink.

This is how wars start.

In this case the administration is ruling the usual business and the citizens may only through TV or internet leave their comments a few. It is no more democracy. It is a “putinisation” of the western Europe, just a presidency and the media. This change is very sensitive here in France where the administration is hunting islamists to any price.

The Western powers were WRONG all the time. Please revise your Cold War/Great Game rhetoric, the 60s are calling and want their misinformation back.

The supposed emperor has no clothes as revealed by Vlad the Great doing in three weeks what Washington had supposedly doing for over a year. The Russian Federation’s stance towards Washington should be “don’t trust but verify”.

The Prophet Mohammed is a defiled joke now. Just saw a picture of him in his underwear in Moscow, getting spanked in a Toyota truck. Dirty little prophet.

This opinion piece is a wonderful example of Western propaganda.
Patriotism blinds.

What “moderates”? Al Nusra? They are just al Queda in Syria. The FSA? They are confirmed as participating with al Nusra in anti-Christian massacres. Just sickening that anybody is still trying to peddle this tripe. As to “root cause”, that would be the dark ages Wahhabi state of Saudi Arabia. And of course the Turks who are well-documented as having aided and abetted ISIS in many ways, including monetarily by buying ISIS oil. Speaking of which, rather interesting that the US forces only started bombing ISIS oil trucks after the Russkies made them look bad by actually doing something other than train “moderates” who subsequently went over to ISIS with weapons and full kit.
