    A friend in MI6 says the problem the UK has with Syria is that the vast majority of Syrians are either stupid or evil since they support their current government, which is evil incarnate since it is unambiguously opposed to ‘freedom’. And by ‘freedom’ he means that UK companies MUST be free to exploit Syrian resources without any impediments (or Syrian taxes on their profits). And the only thing that’s making it hard for the US/UK/France/Saudi Arabia to take over Syria, and cleanse of of everyone who is standing in the way of ‘freedom’ is Russia.

    In the middle of the 19th century, the Czar said he was responsible for protecting the Christians (especially the Orthodox Christians) in the Ottoman Empire. France vehemently disagreed. First, Orthodox aren’t really Christians, and second, France and only France had the right to protect the real Christians (who did NOT include the Orthodox) in the Ottoman Empire. Britain agreed with France and sent a Light Brigade and a Nightingale to Crimea and taught the Czar a lesson he’d not soon forget.

    So when is the US going to send a Light Brigade and a Nightingale to Crimea to teach Putin that he has no right to protect the Christians in Syria, that Syria is part of Saudi’s Dar al Islam and MUST be cleansed of all non-Wahabbis, including the al-Assad heretics who lie and call themselves Muslims when they’re really infidels, plus all the Christian infidels?

    (I won’t go into China using North Korea as a useful catspaw.)

    …and a rather thrilling Eroll Flynn movie!

    For a different take on that, read George McDonald Fraser’s “Flashman at the Charge!” Not particularly accurate but funny.

    There was a time when France was “La Fille Ainée de l’Église” (The eldest daughter of the (catholic) church), but hose days pretty much ended with the French Revolution that saw the persecution of priests, Napoleon was quite “meh” on religion and the last three kings of France never manage to make religion the political tool it once was in their arsenal.
