Russia Launches New Surprising Strategy: Appeasement
by Tyler Durden
In a time when Obama is pitching his entire campaign around one core, if strawman, theme – preventing future chemical weapon attacks by the Assad regime, Putin once again shows why when playing geopolitical chess, it is safe to bet on the pesky Russian.
