The US-Russia Proxy War in Syria

It does not appear as though Obama has the same degree of control over foreign and defense policy that Putin enjoys in Moscow   . . .   Perhaps the greatest danger from Obama’s acquiescence to the neocons’ new Cold War with Russia is that the neocon hopes for “regime change in Moscow” will be realized except that Putin will be replaced by some ultra-nationalist who would rather risk nuclear war than accept further humiliation of Mother Russia.
