Vladimir Putin evaluates risks benefits of Syrian intervention

Interesting development with Russia's leader (czar) Vladimir Putin now directing air strkes to intervene in war town Syria.

Official: Russia conducts first airstrike in Syria - reports CNN

Russia has conducted its first airstrike in Syria, near the city of Homs, a senior U.S. official told CNN Wednesday . U.S. missions are continuing as normal, reports CNN. The upper house of the Russian parliament has given President Vladimir Putin approval to use the Russian air force in Syria, according to state media.

In my uninformed position, Russia's president has decided the deteriorating Syrian situation has put the evil President Assad's leadership at risk. Obviously, Putin doesn't want to be put on trial by an international court for the support of wars crimes against humanity, after Syria's President is hanged for murdering his own people and driving half of the nation's population into refugee camps.

If the outcome of Russia's interventions are to reduce the evil ISIS (self declared Islamic State) growth and, in so doing, eliminate Assad, then his strategy will put him back on the international stage as a "hero come lately". In fact, it's rather brilliant international politics for Putin to finally intervene on behalf of blocking any more carnage in the Middle East related to ISIS and the Syrian refugee humanitarian disaster.

Isn't it ironic to see President Putin doing evil to his equally "evil" colleagues. "Evil is as evil does" or "it takes one to know one" come to mind when trying to explain how it is President Putin has finally acted like the "clean up hitter" in a baseball game. In fact, Putin may well hit a proverbial grand slam.  He'll allow air strikes into Syria to take out ISIS training in Assad's nation.  In my opinion, Putin will eventually remove President Assad for incompetent leadership and, probably, even broker a Middle East peace accord. Then, if he can only fix his Russian economy, he could finally bring Russia into the 21st century as a real, not in name only, world leader. Nevertheless, as a trained KGB operative, we will rue the day when Putin takes the spotlight on the world's center stage.
