Nuclear Flexing and Flossing
The Russians appear to have regained their previous Cold War status, just in time for the escalation of the proxy war in Syria. Vladimir Putin revealed Russia's new ICBM to the world, claiming that the missile had unlimited range that could easily reach anywhere the continental U.S. Putin also stated during the ICBM illustration that any attack on Russian allies would essentially be an attack on Russia itself. As I stated in an early blog, Syria has been in the crosshairs of the U.S. and Israel for the past few years now. All efforts to remove Syria's president Bashar al-Assad have failed so far. Since Russia and Iran have Syria's back militarily, al-Assad has been able to give the West the proverbial middle finger and has tightened his grip on the country. Putin's flexing has definitely turned up the heat in the region and has put everybody in the international community on alert. In other news, I've published three new articles! Enjoy!
