The American Conservative outlines for readers that Putin referred refreshingly during an interview with Charlie Rose to terms of Realpolitik, such as “national interest.” Also noted: “There was little if any of the Wilsonian globaloney favored by members of our foreign policy establishment—Democrats and Republicans alike—who seem to share the belief that the only thing missing from the region today is American ‘leadership.’”
“[N]o one is going to come out as a winner from Russia’s new intervention in the Levant,” concludes the American Conservative.
Over the last year, I have been posting on the “national interest” thinking of Alexander Dugin, Russian political writer and advisor to Vladimir Putin. Today’s interest by Vladimir Putin in Syria squares well with Dugin’s expansionist thinking.
