Of course.Remember, all of Obama’s super-close Interesting Foreign Friends are just here to help us n stuff. At least, that’s the fantasy our daydreaming president likes to indulge.

Ace has a long post that nails the utter humiliation that Putin is handing to the US and Obama. I can’t get upset that Putin is pursuing Russia’s best interests. That’s what a leader should do.
I just wish Obama and Kerry might think about pursuing our best interests.
No serious person is the slightest bit surprised that Russia’s first airstrikes were against our allies in the region. Ace notes that the Free Syrian Army isn’t the great military threat to Assad. They are, however, a moral threat. The world would, Ace notes, generally welcome the FSA as the new power in Syria. But Russia wouldn’t. So of course they’ll attack the FSA. The Assad family has been an ally for years. At least Putin grasps the value of standing by an ally.
Note as well the manner in which Putin not only pursues his objectives, but does so in a manner that is deliberately insulting to the US and Obama personally. Nothing like spiking the ball in the end zone.
