Appreciate the rep. I take no joy whatsoever in the win by Putin and Assad. But we are really dealing realistically with the lesser of two evils.
The thought that Obama and the administration are just fine with arming radical Islamists to take out Assad just blows me away.
And it's unacceptable. So in the long run, it is better that Putin and Assad win. Heaven's knows that even Putin is truly disturbed at the possibility that if Assad is deposed and those weapons got into Chechens hands all hell would break loose in his own country.
