The Golden Background of Eurasia. The New Cold War and the Third Rome.

... see her, truefuly, as a bulwark of traditionalism.But most interestingly is the fact that liberals also are divided into supporters and opponents of the modern West.

... States over Syria is ludicrous because it would only result in devastating defeat at the hands of the United States with no chance of saving face and only a high cost as a result, much worse than any cost that could be inflicted on the U.S. After all, Putin is not stupid enough to engage in a nuclear war that would destroy both nations and likely the world over the likes of Bashar al-Assad.
