Things may be getting even more complicated in Syria after Turkey shot down a Russian plane. How will Russia respond?
When it comes to foreign policy, we know how Neoliberal hawks like Hillary respond to provocation: more violence, more intervention, more investment in sewing chaos. The problem for American interventionists in Syria is they are so focused on ousting Assad they seem to forget the pesky presence of the Russians and their vastly more effective offensive against the terrorists America has been pretending to fight.
While Democrats are safely corralled in the moral superiority of the refugee debate, a confrontation with a nuclear-armed Russia is brewing.
I hope things don’t go hot and ruin America’s tradition of celebrating genocide with overeating, because that would be a real bummer.
