Im looking at Europe's MSM - nothing about Syria that springs to the eye.
There is clearly an implicit acceptance or even agreement. No one has love for Assad, and I think that it is clear that the Russians are less tough here than they are at their own border. Theyve had a good run but lets face it, they could do with more seriously meritable allies. Even if only for the photo ops.

Yes. But it's difficult to be allies with those who want to destroy you and are continuously trying to destroy you. Russia has a backbone, which is why it is targeted for removal. It must be the case that the Russian people also have backbone, whereas so many European (and American) people do not.

Capitalism is being (mis)used to produce extreme dependency in western societies in order to pacify the mind, through addiction to "free stuff" as socialism is basically vampirizing true capitalistic processes for the sake of producing a class of mild-hearted voter cattle. I can't imagine Russia wanting to ally with any of that shit.
