Politico: The dangerous link between Syria and Ukraine.

https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/09/putin-syria-ukraine-213173

"Experts from the left and right alike warn that cooperation with Russia on Syria can have potentially disastrous consequences for the U.S., but too many Americans still don’t understand how closely linked these two headline conflicts are, and American policy has yet to confront the reality that Syria and Ukraine are part of the same mission for Russia—the destruction of the post-WWII architecture of the West. To achieve this goal, Russia has pursued a clear policy of disruption, chaos and destabilization—in Ukraine and in the Middle East—in order to force the West to have to partner with Russia to “resolve” the crises it has created."

1. Most will never figure that out.

So few understand what Putin is really up to. Never forget,he was a student of Stalin.

6. I keep going back to one big picture issue here

Ultimately, it is very possible that this could end up getting Turkey kicked out of NATO. At the very least, it will become a serious internal squabble.

And once again, the undermining of NATO becomes part of the narrative.

In real terms, I am not sure how much it matters. But I think having a majority muslim member in NATO is helpful to being a world player rather than just representing the Euro-White-Christian Countries.
