Another Look at Russia
From Mario Loyola over in The Corner:
And they’re not done. Building nuclear reactors for Iran, selling tons of weapons to Venezuela, using their gas pipeline monopoly in brazen acts of Eurasia-wide extortion, Russia is far more a problem in the War on Terror, than part of the solution, despite decades of of being one of the main targets of terrorism.
Which is kind of the point I was trying to make a couple days ago. It is simply becoming more obvious with each passing week that not only can we not trust the Russians to back us in our foreign policy endeavors, even as they relate to the war on terror, but we can expect them to work quietly against us.
Which, if we’re going to be getting all Cold War up in this joint, we might want to have the right musical accompaniment. (Warning: This a link to a semi-largish mp3 of Sting at his Cold Un-Warrior best.)
