A strike against Syria or Iran is an indirect strike against Russia and its interests. Russia would lose important positions and allies in the Arab world. Therefore, by defending Syria, Russia is defending its own interests.With Russia (and China) vetoing the UN Resolution against Syria's Assad -- reducing U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice to sputtering about "disgust" (thus proving she's naive) -- how's that famous Obama Administration Russian reset button working?
In addition, Russia is thus defending the entire world from Fascism. Everybody should acknowledge that Fascism is making strides on our planet. What they did in Libya is nearly identical to what Hitler and his armies did against Poland and then Russia. Today, therefore, Russia is defending the entire world from Fascism.
неудача. From the start and today. That's because foreign policy for the unicorn world "bombs" in the real world.
