One does not follow Obama foreign policy. Its purpose is incoherent other than as a means to “increase the contradictions.” So Putin is helping out by making it obvious that the supposed cure in Syria is worse than the disease. He’s backing Assad, probably because he knows Islamic radicalism first hand in Russia and doesn’t want the same kind of mess so close by in Syria that the “liberation” of Libya brought on. He’s probably concerned that what Syria does to Israel via Hezbollah, an anti-Assad regime in Syria might do to Russia through a re-invigorated jihad of Chechen radicals.

Richard Fernandez at Belmont Club describes the mess.
