    As they say, all morality rests on the sense of proportion. The USSR was a totalitarian nightmare for its captives and an existential threat for the rest of world. The Putin's Russia is merely a corrupt, occasionally oppressive state that maintains patronage over some thuggish regimes, like the Syrian Baathists.

    You should ask Israel whether they think PUTIN is a Russian or a Soviet?
    PUTIN is arming multiple terrorist Nations within easy reach of Israel, no matter what you think of Israel.
    ASSad denied there were WMDs before Obama forced PUTIN to force ASSad to admit he would give up his WMDs.
    And now Repub pols back-track after PUTIN's mistake with exceptionalism.

    Hahaha. Anyone can go back and read it and decide who knows more.

    Now you just being ridiculous. The old USSR had nothing but relentless hostility for Israel. Now, the two countries have vigorous trade, cultural ties, and plenty of military cooperation.

    Some of that cooperation being of a...rather peculiar character:

    Israel selling reconnaissance drones to Russia

    By Yossi Melman | Apr. 12, 2009 | 1:39 AM

    "Russia has signed a contract to purchase Israeli reconnaissance drones in an attempt to improve its own unmanned aircraft after a poor performance in the war against Georgia last August. The deal, the first-ever purchase announced by Russia of Israeli military hardware, was signed about three weeks ago by senior Israeli and Russian officials".



    Sure, Israel is not thrilled with Russia propping up Assad (and Saddam, before that). But during the Arab Springs in North Africa, the general tone of comments from Jerusalem and from Moscow was exactly the same: better the corrupt secular dictators like Mubarak than the democratically elected "Islamist" fanatics.
