Syria: A friend in need

Now that Russia has finally stepped in to aid her long time ally in the Middle East, the reaction here in the West should not surprise any of us.

What has raised a few eyebrows, though, is the universal outrage that recent sorties have included some of the 'good' terrorists who we apparently want to protect.

However much decent Americans may be alarmed at their government's unholy association with Turkey's Muslim Brotherhood and the Saudi Salafis, here in the UK, we are well used to such political expediencies, as our government has a long tradition of collaboration with terrorists.

The main difference between the situation now, and that of just a few short years ago in Northern Ireland, is that today there seems no need to hide the facts of who we are supporting, no matter how atrocious they may be.
