What is Wrong With Russia

Russia has its own problems with Jihad and its rebellious internal republic of Chechnya, so what are they doing in the Middle-East? It appears that they are helping the friends of their enemies. At least when it comes to Israel.

It is beyond belief. The Russians have to realize that everything they give to the "Holy" Warriors of Islam will later be used against them. Have they forgotten the slaughtered school children on opening day just a couple of years ago? They must have.

Putin is playing a deadly game to regain Russian prestige and I don't see how he can win it. Even if America falls, Russia will not come out on top because they will not be able to control the Jihadists.

H/T American Thinker.

Russia is desperate and afraid with a lack of faith and purpose.

Let me get this right.Russia is rebuilding some bridges and other infrastructure in Lebanon.
You see this as a threat? We should be there helping them with this humanitarian gesture. It was, afterall, our bombs (used by Israel) that caused this destruction. Your paranoia is getting extreme. You seem to need a strawman to knock down to justify the reckless course we as a nation have embarked on under the Decider.

You need to read the article again unless you consider The Jerusalem Post another "fringe news source."

Russia is a threat to humanity. They have always made the WORST of decisions and choose the wrong side to be on. As far as Israel goes, they have never been particularly fond of them and the Jewish communities over there are all but shut out and completely starving to death more so than regular Russian citizens. They are isolated and considered lower than whale shi* over there. In the final days of prophecy the Russian Jews will leave and enter their homeland Israel and that'll be one of the last chapters of our time on earth. Russia is in this for special interests and money when it comes to helping our enemies in the Islime world. When our guys are shot, wounded and killed the AK's and other weponry/equipment, majority wise, have been sold by the Russians and China primairly. That's where all those Mu-slims get their stuff, MOST of it anyway.

It is beyond belief, Shoprat. So are people who think we should be helping Russia in their madness. I do believe some people truly do have their heads screwed on backwards.

Lone Pony is right. This has always been Russia's position, even when she was a world power. Paranoia and desperation is a bad premise for foreign policy, but when it becomes the basis for domestic policy as well, it explains how they spiralled downward so rapidly and have consigned themselves to forever be a second-class nation (our own politicians might do well to learn from the "Great Bear's" mistake).

Obviously, Russia (like America) learned absolutely nothing from Afghanistan. Or maybe they think that since we funded the "warriors of Jihad" against them, they'll return the favor, so to speak.

'Obviously, Russia (like America) learned absolutely nothing from Afghanistan.'

This is a incredulous statement to say the least. Russia was in Afgahnistan for 9 years and got basically NOWHERE!
The US backed Afghan resistance movement against a communist aggressor seeking a warm water port. After the withdrawl of the Russians, civil war insued and the Taliban gave raise OUT of that, seeking to enforce Islamic law over a united Afghanistan.

The US has freed Afgahnistan an they subsequenty held FREE elections NEVER possible before!

The summation that (like america) is an arbitrary statement.

Actually, what I was getting at is that we supported the Afghanis against Russia, and now we are getting bitten in the rear for it. Now they are "returning the favor," and I anm certain that the "Warriors of Jihad" will be more than happy to utilize their Russian training and equipment against their benefactors just as readily as they are currently using them against America. I am in no way denying the fantastic things we have done for the people of the Middle East in allowing them the freedom to choose their own oppressive and xenophobic regimes. It was not an arbitrary statement, nor was it an incredulous one. Check a dictionary and invest in a thesaurus.

It's an arbitrary statement.
Based on or subject to individual judgment or preference:
Plainly stated.

Based upon your judgement, how is that NOT arbitrary?

..'and now we are getting bitten in the rear for it.'
Again, an arbitrary statement; based upon your judgement.

AN then from WIKI:the arbiter has not reached a conclusion based on the evidence.

'and I anm certain that the "Warriors of Jihad" will be more than happy to utilize their Russian training and equipment against their benefactors just as readily as they are currently using them against America'

The insurgnrcy in Afgahnistan is not using the traning from their benefactors (America). Do you forget that the Taliban elements trained their OWN.
