Syria and Ukraine: ‘Do as I Say, Not as I Do’

Today’s question is what is the difference between what the United States may or may not do in Syria and what Russia may or may not have done in the Ukraine. The main difference is that according to Vladimir Putin what happened in Crimea and eastern Ukraine has nothing to do with anything Mr. Putin or Russia did whereas what’s about to happen in Syria has a great deal to do with what the United States plans to do. If Mr. Putin were not credible, the differences between what’s happening would be less pronounced.

How America Made ISIS: Their Videos and Ours, Their “Caliphate” and Ours

Abroad, from Libya and Ukraine to Iraq and the South China Sea, nothing has been coming up roses for the U.S.
