(Paul Craig Roberts, a former economics policy adviser in the Reagan 
administration, writes those typical Counterpunch articles about Russia 
being the world's best hope for peace and national sovereignty. On his 
personal blog, he is not hesitant to bare his teeth. What a mad hatter.)

Russia had a victory for Syria and democracy in its hands, but Putin 
lacked the decisiveness of a Napoleon or a Stalin and let his victory 
slip away as a result of false hopes that Washington could be trusted. 
Now a Russian/Syrian victory would require driving the Turks and 
Americans out of Syria.

If Russia struck hard and fast, Russia could succeed by using 
Washington’s lie and claiming that Russia thought the US and Turkish 
forces were ISIS, just as Washington claimed when Washington 
intentionally struck a known Syrian Army position.
