In Syria, instead … Continue reading Second rate proxies

In this respect, the … Continue reading Trump, diplomat
Authoritarian government is normal in Russia, democracy isn't. Instead of standing by and watching Moscow, Tehran and Beijing gain territory and influence at the west's expence, it's time for peace through strength.
