Didn't Putin order his generals to draw up a plan to deal with the Saudi's after the threat of terrorism at the Olympics? Surely he would make good on that threat for the common good? Or, was that just political posturing?

Anyone firing a gun to improve a country is a terrorist. Anyone helping others to improve a country is a nice guy.

PART 1 of 2

Dear RT, please verify or deny this report by Lebanon's OTV channel. Please do not obfuscate 'to not jeopardise Russia's work with partners over Syria.'

In exchange for kidnapped Greek Orthodox Archbishop Boulous Yazigi and Syriac Orthodox bishop Yuhanna Ibrahim of Aleppo, these demands were conveyed to the parties who negotiated the release of Lebanese Shiite pilgrims kidnapped by Turkish sponsored ‘North Storm Brigade’:

Is Putin a wimp? It certainly proves, how can Saudi prince try to buy/threaten Russians? Why Russia does not challenge and just bomb Riyadh one time as a token to show Saudi Arabia, it can and it will if Saudis pushed Russia to that inhuman step.

Saudies are fighting to be the master of the Middle east and Persian Gulf region. However Iranian are more clever and would not let that happen. It seems USA has realised that after three decades.

The Russia is gaining trust from the rest of the world and the USA is gaining mistrust from the rest of the world including their own citizens.

The rebels of Syria connected to the USA could not gain the trust of the Syrian people. They will lose in the next democratic election of Syria if they participated.

Even the American citizens are losing trust to their government how could the rest of the world trust the White House?

The Snowden is now the most effective weapon to bring peace and transparency to our world. I hope the second Snowden is coming up, just wait.
