one foolishly had hoped that russia would stop its games in the middle east. the cold war was declared dead. putin obviously did not receive the death notice. too bad for russia. this huge territory, sparsely populated, where men die in their fifties from alcoholism, surroundeed by china and islamice hordes, would have done well to put to rest its age old enmity with the west. however, once a kgb, always a kgb.
