Who would have thought that would ever happen? Russia and Iran protect their interests, win a major propaganda coupe and get all of Syria’s resources once this is all over. They have come out of this ‘smelling of roses’. Perhaps it would be great if they could take over from the USA as the World’s Policeman.
I know they would not have done anything if the rest of the World had not brought pressure to bear but, in a roundabout way, they have actually worked with everyone for the first time. Perhaps in 20/30 years they will draw closer to the rest of us and join the battle against the other terrorist groups, Iran may even stop supplying the weapons, and then be followed by Western suppliers?
I notice that the Irish troubles have started again perhaps we could ask Russia to have a quiet word with those terrorists, gangsters, drug dealers, thieves.
