How Putin outwitted the West

Saddam Hussein hanged: is Iraq a better place? A safer place? Gaddafi murdered in front of the viewers: is Libya a better place? Now we are demonising Assad. Can we try to draw lessons?
— Sergei Lavrov, Russian foreign minister, United Nations, 1 October

Russia was right about Iraq and Libya, and America and Britain were dead wrong. Regime change doesn’t seem to have changed Middle Eastern countries for the better, as Vladimir Putin has been warning for years.

      not all the time
      Pol Pot

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        We never supported Pol Pot

        • Minicapt

          Of course we did; if we didn’t, then people wouldn’t say that.


          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Yes, and we never went to the moon and Area-51 space aliens are real, because people say it.
            Pol Pot and the Khemer Rouge were 100% the creation of the Chineese communists.

          • El Martyachi

            100%? Are you sure? The Khmer Rouge always seemed kinda Tommy Douglas-ish to me …

            You know, I had to look that guy up. At first I was thinking maybe he was a Canadian gay porn star, and then after a few seconds I read he was some kind of mid 20th century SJW.
            Way worse!

            Gay, Canadian porn star / SJW – there are some definite similarities: I can see how someone could mix them up 😉

            yup… home grown , corn fed gays… we got lots of em

          Brzezinski said, “I encouraged the Chinese to support
          Pol Pot. I encouraged the Thai to help the D.K. [Khmer Rouge government-in-exile of
          Democratic Kampuchea]

          the United States again supported the Khmer Rouge in the
          UN as the “legitimate” representative of the Cambodian people

          “U.S. complicity in his rise to power, a complicity that sustained him for almost two decades”

          “An immoral connivance between China and the U.S. allowed killing fields to flourish.”

    The only leaders that can control most Muslims are the likes of Hussein, Assad and Khadafy.

      I agree but eventually their cultural predisposition towards overpopulation screws up the equation.

    O/T or maybe not
    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has bowed out of the race for Speaker of the House.
    “The president has put in place an organization that contains the kind of
    database that no one has ever seen before in life. That’s going to be
    very, very powerful. That database will have information about
    everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done
    …a good read

      Dirt, Dirt is just dirt, it has as much value as confederate money anymore,
      The POTUS is a gay/muslim/socialist, his “wife” the same, the previous
      POTUS was a liar and womanizer married to a lesbian/muslim lover.

      How many “leaders” are gay, now many get caught with their fingers in the
      till and nothing happens

      Watergate would barely make the news in these degenerate times

    muslims only respect the strong horse, They need to be ruled by dictators as that is the only form of government suited to islamic disfunction. obambi is laughably far from being a strong horse. Putin is .He has the ethics of a thug. this is not afghanistan 2 this will be methodical assault against all opposition.
    this is what the West should have done instead of being lead astray by a community organizer and a muslim tainted whitehouse.

  • I tried to tell you, but you wouldn’t listen.

      So, how much cash did you lose when the Quad and Hussein went down for the count?


  • John

    A good read on Putin vs Obama. I still can’t believe how stupid this inept administration really is.

  • tom_billesley

    Puto is kindly simplifying things for bumbling Obama by eliminating the jihadis who fight under the FSA brand name. Obama will have just two choices – Assad or Islamic State

    The enemy are totalitarians. Its worst practitioners are muslims.
