*Assuming Obama sends troops.

I expect it will happen. I probably shouldn't have said it as though they are already there.

But they control the shortest routes to supply eastern Europe with oil and gas via pipeline. Russia want's to control those routes to have a destination for their production.

Absolutely. Anything he can do to irritate the US and make us look bad, he will. He is the consummate bully.




You couldn't be more wrong. I clearly remember the "reset" button. The US and Russia are now best friends because of that. Putin is our friend. Hillary changed things. We got rid of that bad old Bush chap and now things are rosy.
I wish you Russia haters would quit.

The substance of your post was correct. They are in theater now, just not in country.

US, Jordan troops hold desert war games

Please, please tell me that is a photoshop. Please tell me Secretary Clinton did not give a "re-set" button to them.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton learned that lesson the hard way Friday when she presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with a gift bearing an incorrect translation -- one that implied hostility, rather than peacemaking.

Clinton presented Lavrov with a gift-wrapped red button, which said "Reset" in English and "Peregruzka" in Russian. The problem was, "peregruzka" doesn't mean reset. It means overcharged, or overloaded.

And Lavrov called her out on it.

"We worked hard to get the right Russian word. Do you think we got it?" Clinton asked Lavrov.

"You got it wrong," Lavrov said. "This says 'peregruzka,' which means overcharged."

The two top diplomats, who met in Geneva, laughed and Clinton explained: "We won't let you do that to us, I promise."

I thought I read a year ago on here that Russia was on their way to Syria to whip arse and cause chaos or something.

I am no fan of Obama, but what would you like for him to do?

Stay. Out. Of Syria. Period.

We have no vital national interest involved in their civil war. None.

Not side with Al Qaida and stay the hell out of the mess in Syria. And maybe, not have negotiations with the Taliban.
