A Russian ally Assad (ahem: a reformer who was controlled and got the chemicals out) facility goes boom, thanks to 59 cruise missiles. How interesting that it took place when Xi Jinping is in town, and talk will be about North Korea — another place that needs to go boom soon. Mr. Xi will no doubt be listening with greater interest as of today. And we note that the Sunni king of Jordan and the Egyptian president both had very nice things to say about a guy who is clearly anti Iran and pro traditional gulf allies. If he can get the Saudis to stop proselytizing in favor of horrible Wahhabi sharia, it could be a great four years done within 90 days.
Question: what happens to the Putin conspiracy narrative, since these recent moves are 180 degrees against Russia?
