Since the September issue, the U. S. has backed away from a strike on Syria in favor of the Russian proposal for the disposal of all of its chemical weapons. This in effect means no penalty of Bashar Asaad for his deliberate murder of civilians and he survives. Now Russia and Iran collaborate for hegemony in the Middle East, which since Egypt switched allegiance from its Soviet alliance to the U. S. in 1970 has belonged to America. Thus the Syrian crisis results in an opportunity for Russia to return to dominance in the region along with its client Iran if they can keep their ally Bashar Asaad in power. And to top it all off, we agree to begin nuclear weapons talks with the new “moderate” President of Iran. The Sunni Arabs (Saudi Arabia) and the Israelis are terrified of all of this, and we should be. America continues to shrink.
