    Putins Russia now a force in the Middle East

    Israel must now persuade Russia, to draw the line at providing weapons to its allies that would undermine Israel’s security.

    President Barack Obama’s abysmal failure to provide leadership during the Syrian crisis represents a turning point in the Middle East and has paved the way for President Vladimir Putin’s Russia to emerge as the dominant regional force, a position it had surrendered after the breakup of the Soviet Union.

    To avert abject humiliation, Obama has absurdly spun the situation into a victory achieved by the American threat of military force. Instead, it was Putin who played the role of international statesman and masterminded a watershed moment for the Middle East, in which Russia effectively supplanted the US as world leader.

    Free Republic?

    Russia didn't supplant the US as a world leader..

    Syria and Iran have always been in Russia's sphere of influence.

    Look at the oil corridor..

    Free Republic quoting the J-Post which said by the way, that Russia is now "a force" in the ME, not "thee force" in the ME. Don't twist things.

    Obama Derangement syndrome can have crippling effects on peoples critical thinking skills.

    While Obama is a weak leader... in no way has Russia become the regions "dominant regional force" by supplying weapons to a dictator that cannot control half his country...

    Russia has always supplied weapons to Syria, so nothing has changed in that regard.

    Gotta love these people who love to gloat about American exceptionalism... meaning Ginsberg can't even talk about a foreign constitution, Obama can't show respect to a foreign head of state etc.

    But they get to sing the praises of a former KGB agent.

    Don't believe everything you read.

    Russia has always been "a force" in the ME.

    For some it's Obama derangement syndrome, for others it's US derangement syndrome.

    But for most, it's known as reality.

    This should be a strong visual on how important Iran is for oil and gas from the Caspian and the Stans to the Persian Gulf and points East.

    The rhetoric from Iran is changing...
