The Case of the Keystone Cossacks – by Michael Weiss | Foreign Policy.
There is something poetic about seeing #Russia’s foreign policy being undermined, no matter how lightly at this stage, by Russian mercenaries. After all, #Putin’s policy towards #Syria has been purely thuggish, profiteering and vile since the outset of the Revolution. More importantly though, the whole thing has prophetic implications as well. In short, Putin’s is undermining Russia’s own security, the writing is on the wall in bold letters, and he simply cannot see it.
