The Russians won WWII in Europe against Hitler and saved us. They lost 30 million people in doing so 5 times the number of Jews killed by Hitler that we hear about endlessly from the Kosher media. Putin by supporting Assad who is no threat to this country and attacking ISIS and their felliow travelllers who are has brought a clarity to this war which the Old Etonian Cameron and the sordid Obama with his Guantanemo concentration camp have proved incapable of doing. Wooly quasi liberal obfuscation is the life blood of Western politics. Putin does clear thinking which will benefit us hugely if he destroys ISIL.
Sure the Russians want to keep their warm deep water port on the Med at Tartus but if it keeps the gun toting Yanks in check that is no bad thing. Its called the balance of power a policy familiar to Palmerston and all UK Foreign Secretaries in the 19th and 20th centuries. Its not without is downside like WWI.
You can only fight one enemy at a time so choose the one which poses the greatest danger to your interests. Sure Assad is a nasty dictator but as Kissinger said and I am sure Putin will agree he is our nasty little dictatator.
Obama/Cameron/EU foreign policy in the Middle East has left a fragmented collection of failed states, Iraq, Libya etc. Time to butt out and give the Russians a chance. They can hardly do worse but I fear the Jewish lobby in Washington will be doing their best to fowl things up although I do not think Obama needs any help in cocking things up. He is very competent in the cock up area on his own but he can always call on EU back up to really mess things up.
