WASHINGTON, June 22, 2016 – When Russian President Vladimir Putin deployed 150,000 troops to Syria in December 2015, he intended to prevent another secular Arab state from falling to radical Islam’s more virulent strains.
Putin was serious about confronting what America’s JV team, the Obama administration, had unleashed upon the world through its premature withdrawal of American forces in Iraq leading to ISIL (Islamic State in the Levant).
Obama can’t call them ISIS because doing so might remind sleepy Americans that a hallmark of his failed presidency was to allow these medieval throwbacks to spread from Syria to Iraq – hence the more appropriate moniker “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.”
“Let’s assume we send 50,000 troops into Syria,” said Obama in defense of his inaction to an uncritical press, “What happens when there is a terrorist attack generated from Yemen? Do we send more troops into there?”
Obama needn’t have worried. ISIS, it turns out, is not in Yemen but in sunny San Bernardino, California, and Orlando, Florida.
Last December, Putin described presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump as “a bright and talented person… an outstanding and talented personality.”
Trump returned the compliment, “I have always felt that Russia and the United States should be able to work well with each other towards defeating terrorism and restoring world peace.”
In a blog post, a hacker calling himself Guccifer 2.0 claims to have breached computers at the Democratic National Committee, accessing its opposition research on a certain New York City real estate mogul as well as the Democratic Party’s playbook containing talking points defending the criminality and ethical failings of one Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“Cyber firm CrowdStrike, which is working on the DNC’s investigation into the hack, says the attack was conducted by groups affiliated with the Russian government,” Fox News reported.
“The Democratic National Committee was so worried about the damage Hillary Clinton’s family foundation could cause to her presidential ambition that its research compiled their own collection of ‘vulnerabilities’ that party officials would need to address,” said London’s Daily Mail.
Russia once allied with the United States to defeat the evil of German fascism in the first half of the 20th century. It appears the Russians are gearing up to fight an equally daunting enemy in the early 21st century. An enemy that refuses to name or fight the religious ideology of Islamic fascism that threatens the Western World – the Democratic Party.
And the former KGB leader and current president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, stands ready to do what inept congressional Republicans and a corrupt and lying press won’t – get to the bottom of Democratic Party and Clinton corruption.
And let’s hope Vlad does some impaling.
