True but that does not make it wrong. Russia has been looking for an opportunity to embarrass/bloody the USA. Seems Syria is that opportunity. We have no business in Syria and it is insane to get involved as allies of the Christian killing Al Quada. I think everyone in DC has lost their minds.
Concur. Putin sees this as a opportunity and he is not wrong. And I can see a lot of countries coming into the play as this unravels. I think the WWI analogy is quite apt, but I think some folks dismiss it as an empty cliche. For me, it is not empty.
