Gilbert Doctorow — Russia is ready for war with the USA to defend its national interests , while the American public slumbers on…

Those in the US war party who talk about Putin’s dream of reestablishing the Soviet Union are repeating endlessly complete nonsense. But there is a dream, a very new dream in Moscow which did not exist till the present direct and existential confrontation with the USA that Russia will be understood to be not just a great power but a super power with global interests. In this sense, by presenting Russia with hostility and enormous challenges, the United States has been creating the very Russia it fears.…
The end result of the official silence in the USA about Russia’s message of defiance and about its military wherewithal in place in Syria to defend what it construes as its national interest is that as a nation we are flying blind.

What is Russia's 'national interest' in Syria? Maybe blocking the construction of a gas pipeline thru there over into Europe? Give me a break...

Vlad must be in the T Boone Pickens 'gas will never go below $5!" camp..

Or Vlad must be thinking he looks like a big idiot when he reneged on the Ukraine gas deal when gas went to $13 and now its $2.... what an idiot!

and now we are on the brink of WW3 because Vlad cant admit he was waaaaaay wrong on the gas price... makes a good argument for term limits over there...

If the Russians had American style politics they'd want to be sedated too.
