Putin + Assad

putin and assad

Holy crap, what a most revolting spectacle, the op-ed of Vladimir Putin, the butcher of Chechnya in the New York Times. What you get is pure obfuscation, this claim that it’s not clear who gassed those people, or that denial that the Syrian people are fighting for their freedom from a brutal regime armed to the teeth by Russia and Iran and supported by Hezbollah fighters, and notion that it’s not the Russian and Chinese veto of any action re: Syria for the last 2 years that has not led to the collapse of the credibility of the UN. Putin even enlisted the Pope. Bomb don’t bomb, but spare us the b-shit.
