Until Bush the Lesser dethroned Saddam, Iraq was a Russian client state.

Their military was equipped by the Russians and trained in Russian tactics.
It is why they were good at running a secret police, but clownishly awful at large set piece combat. The Russians were never good at this type of warfare, which is why the Germans drove them to the gates of Moscow. Now, the Russians have Syria, Iran and Iraq on board and that means they can build their pipelines without too much interference from the West.

My. Putin is just one lucky guy. (Another sarc label so I won't be mistaken for a liberal again.)

They may not get any interference from the west, but if their history in Afghanistan and Chechnya is worth noting, they will get a lot of interference from the followers of the prophet.

Time for us to ramp up domestic oil production. Get that Keystone pipeline happening. F*ck the caribou.

BillH: Ahem, you want to avoid sounding like a Liberal or a Libertarian you got to say stuff like: "Conservative values. Class Warfare is for dope-smoking commies. Stand on your own. No leeching. No whining. Fuck the hippies."
Dispense good hard punches in the face to any and all that don't toe the line.
