Balancing international relations

download (1)

Russia has launched air strikes in Syria from an airbase in Iran. In the ongoing war on terrorism and concomitant violence in the Middle East a U.S. ally with whom relations are under greater strain than any time in the past 30 years is combating the threat from a country with whom the U.S. is attempting to normalize relations for the first time in over 30 years. During a time when a presidential candidate bemoans the status of the former while criticizing the latter while urging a stronger response in combating terrorism in the Middle East.

There’s irony there somewhere.
