    Putin warns Russia could come to Syria's aid if US attacks

    As he touched down in St. Petersburg on Thursday morning, President Obama greeted his host Vladimir Putin with a handshake and a smile.
    But the cordial greeting belies the tinderbox the two leaders are sitting on, as they posture and deliberate over a potential U.S. strike on Syria -- one of Russia's closest Mideast allies.
    Putin escalated concerns about the fallout from any strike when he indicated in an interview published Wednesday that his country could send Syria and its neighbors in the region the components of a missile shield if the U.S. attacks.
    U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testified this week that the Russians might even replace any military assets the U.S. destroys in a strike.
    The warnings raise the possibility of a supposedly "limited" strike on Syria turning into a proxy tit-for-tat between Russia and the U.S.
    Rep. George Holding, R-N.C., went further during a hearing on Syria on Wednesday, pressing military officials on what the U.S. would do "if Russia decided to strike at us in that theater."

    But the warmongers say bring it on, Putin is bluffing. What rational mind wants to run THAT risk to attack a country that hasn't attacked us? Emphasis on rational.

    Putin is 5'7, that's practically a midget. Who's scared of him except the population of Russia?

    He could look like an extra from the original Wizard of Oz and it hardly matters when he flicks his wrist and sends your ass off to a Siberian work camp.
