They're certainly doing a good job of continually supplying arms to the Syrian dictatorship, as well as blocking any international attempts to undermine that regime. It seems you can always trust the Russian and Chinese governments to back an oppressive and brutal regime. Surprise, surprise.

At least there's no hypocrisy when brutal regimes support other brutal regimes. Very Happy

Regards,

Dear Johnslat

Are you calling the Great Motherland a brutal regime?!! Gasp!!! As opposed to the US? A mini slave-empire from its birth, which then grow up to dwarf its evil British parent and remorselessly enslave most of the world?!! To which only the proud Motherland offers any resistance and hope for a life of dignity to all mankind?!

Ach! I need to go back to my drink, and finish my Chomsky tome...
