Nato hypocrisy on Syria

The US and its Nato allies have no strategy on Syria, they only have outrage over Russian actions. That's because a year's bombing by Nato has produced no results on the ground other than bringing Syria closer to disintegration. The reason is simple enough. Nato has been bombing ISIS and it has also been weakening the Syrian regime headed by Assad. Naturally, the outcome is a draw- and untold suffering for the people of Syria.

Enter Russia with a clear agenda, namely, to shore up Assad against all jihadists, ISIS, Al Nusra whoever. This is the only approach that can resolve the crisis in Syria, if at all.

Read this excellent article by a British military expert.

It is really incomprehensible how the American thinking can be so muddled. If their only policy is to oppose whatever Russia does, it is downright ridiculous. Unfortunately, entire world is paying for American stupidity.
