1. He has some nerve. First he throws Russians out of his country and then asks Putin for a favour.
    Wonder if Putin will even respond to him. My bet is he won't.

  2. The "war" in Syria will end when Putin says it will end, and not a minute before!

    So you are saying that Putin is responsible for all the crimes that are being committed against the civilian population in Syria.

    Your comment is a bit extreme. To suggest that everything is dependent on Putin's will, is absolutely false. SJs narrative of the drastic waning of American influence is largely his personal myth based on feelings rather than facts. We need more balance in the comment section, greater historical consciousness. These days I think Americans are less interested in trying to make a positive difference overseas and more focused on domestic issues. So I think the US military will be less active in the Middle East or the Balkans. It really has little to do with Putin.

  6. And everybody else wishes that Paris didn't throw gas on the fire when things first started in Syria!

  7. Translation: Paris has been asked by the USA to raise the white flag.
