Back to the Future
Wednesday, September 9, 2015
In 1979, the Ayatollah Khomeini was preaching death to America and death to Israel; he would soon invade Iraq. In the same year, Leonid Brezhnev was sending Russian troops into Afghanistan to put down a rebellion against a Russian (Soviet) backed dictatorship.
In 2015, the Ayatollah Khamenei is preaching death to America and death to Israel and he has already sent troops into Iraq. In the same year, Vladimir Putin is sending Russian troops into Syria to put down a rebellion against a Russian backed dictatorship.
The more things change in the Middle East the more they stay the same.
There are, of course, new dimensions. The Sunni Islamic State Caliphate is a new and dangerous deviation that has promoted a refugee exodus into the West, focusing on Europe and America. They are counting on western compassion to accept the flood; within which they will infiltrate Islamikaze killers.
Another, more dangerous, innovation is Persian Shia nuclear aspirations. If Iran gets what it hopes to, they will be able to kill as many Jews in a day has Hitler killed throughout WWII and they will be able to target Europe and the USA.
The Problem with Russians defending Assad is that everyone else is pursuing the dual goals of defeating the Islamic State AND replacing Assad. Will Russians defending Assad end up shooting down Americans trying to topple him?
Time will tell....
