Join Me!

Vladimir, you do not yet realize your importance. You have only begun to discover your power.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is planning to make his first official visit to Israel since 2005, although the exact date for the visit has not yet been determined, the Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.

News of Putin's expected visit came as Russia was the center of controversy for its continued support of Syrian President Bashar Assad, despite his brutal crackdown on dissenters. In addition, Russia has been seen as an impediment to harsher international action against Iran for its continued pursuit of nuclear technology. Putin has warned of the dire consequences of a potential Israeli or US attack on the Islamic Republic's nuclear facilities.

With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy.

All kidding aside it makes sense for Israel and Putin to meet. Syria's WMD's are all leftovers from its time as a client state of the USSR so the problem is one that Russia best equipped to handle.

If Israel is fine with an Russian occupation of Syria, I see no reason for the US oppose it. Not to mention the impotence of the Obama administration in doing anything constructive in the matter.
