Russia's Islamist Threat Intensifying

Russian Islamists … with Al Qaeda ties … are gaining. Read more.

Russia backs Islamist Iran and their embattled, secular, Syrian ally, Assad.

The United States and Turkey are backing the Muslim Brotherhood against Assad.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar are supporting the openly Al Qaeda-affiliated-and-sympathizing Salafists against Assad.

The U.S. supported the Islamist scum in Afghanistan in order to weaken and hasten the crackup of the Soviet Union.

The secret Afghan war … culmination of decades of covert backing of rightwing political Islam … backfired horrifically on 9/11.

But Washington stands firmly with Turkey's Islamist regime, assisted the ouster of Egypt's Mubarak, which resulted in the Muslim Brotherhood's takeover of Egypt, and needlessly intervened in Libya, a secular despotism, on the side of Islamists … who proceeded to murder a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

The perfidious policies … the intrigue and cynicism … the bipartisan blunders … boggle the mind.

No wonder relations with Moscow (driving distance from the Syrian border) are at an all-time, post-Cold War low.
