#1 Putin would've been kicked of KGB academy if he didn't master control of body language in the first trimester.

#2 Biblical reference in the comments is interesting....

#3 ^ Yes, M. Most interesting.

Though the Gog and Magog are gathered by Ol' Scratch when he's been in the slammer for a thousand years. A thousand years of peace on earth, then the armies from the four corners, yupp.

It is very 'twilight zone' though, what's happening over there. With Gawd, one never really does know.

#4 Seems Putin is preparing to launch a sitting, left leg roundhouse head kick.

#5 Putin would've been kicked of KGB academy if he didn't master control of body language in the first trimester.

Yeah. Something else is going on here beyond Putin feeling uncomfortable.

Wild Speculation: Putin is restraining his urge to grab Erdy by the neck and pound his head on the floor.

#6 Perhaps Putie doesn’t want or feel the need to mask how he feels? In high stakes encounters over possible conflict being bellicose is one familiar KGB tactic.

#7 Yippy, this is gonna hurt me more than it does you.

#8 If you watch the vid, Putin is playing the subservient role. For good reason too. Erdogan has the upper hand. The Turks can wipe out the Russian force in Syria at any time and take as much of Syria as he wants. All the Russians really have are cruise missiles launched from the Black Sea into Syria and would soon run out. Attack into Turkey and that triggers NATO's Article 5, Putin's worst nightmare outside a Chinese invasion.

#9 Well Greece won't answer the call of Article 5 and I don't know who else will. Belgium maybe? Portugal?

Putin wants to play in the Big Leagues. There's NO WAY he allows Yippy to push him around, and we won't help Turk aggression

#12 and we won't help Turk aggression

Not in Syria. That's everyone's dirty little playpen. Different ball game if Turkey or Russia attack each others' territory.

Turkey attacks into Russia: Not our problem. Turkey is on its own.

Russia attacks into Turkey: Article 5. America will have to respond and back Turkey if only to preserve NATO deterrence in the Russian mind. Even if only to destroy attacking launch points.

#13 Recommend we hold and let the S-400's "work their magic" against Russian Air attacks. Heh

#14 #12 What Black Charlie said.

Syria has not attacked a NATO country.
Russia has not attacked a NATO country.
Article 5 is irrelevant.

Turkey's grand adventure in Syria is not NATO's concern.

#15 Not in Syria. That's everyone's dirty little playpen Calvinball.

As for the Russians being out of resources, it wasn't long ago they flew strategic bombers out of the Rodina to wax some jihadis. Plus whatever is left of the Wagener Group.
