United States, Russia, Syria: Cold War 2.0

The United States has long wanted to get Syria out of Russia’s satellite of control. Syria, geographically, puts a check on Israel. Ukraine, which is barely mentioned versus two years ago, is the alternate land bridge from Russia to western Europe.

The United States will be involved in talks over the weekend regarding air strikes against Aleppo and the need to get humanitarian aid into the beleaguered city.

Aleppo is another red flag patterned after Berlin post World War II. Get Americans crying and worked up about the spread of communism which successfully snookered Americans into answering the draft and fighting in Korea and Vietnam; proxies for the cold war fight between Russia,the United States, and China.

Syria offers the same boom rah-rah as Berlin did. This time it is worse because the cheer leading will offer something more personal and tangible versus political-economic ideology; it will offer up religion. The package, driven by American media acting as mouthpieces for the Obama administration, will play up abuses against Christians. This should be enough to get Louis Gohmert to get on C-SPAN and finally deflect our attention away from Kim Kardashian to persecution of Christians.

Hillary Clinton will be faced with her first major test, but she will be able to pass it with flying colors. She was a part of the team that got Osama bin Laden and Moammar Qaddafi. Taking out Assad while pushing Vlad the Impaler Putin back into the Caucuses will establish her as an ass kicker, much to the chagrin of her sister head of government, Angela Merkel who will then have to explain to the rest of Europe the increase in attacks from the likes of ISIS and probably from Russian operatives crossing into western Europe via, you guessed it, Ukraine.

Laurel and Hardy would appreciate the comedy and the other fine mess another peace loving Democratic president will keep the United States in.
