Russia Backs Syria (Because Syria Is Russian Cash Cow)

(Reuters) MOSCOW - Russia, Syria's close ally since Cold War times, will do all it takes to block any attempt to slap economic sanctions against Damascus, a Foreign Ministry spokesman was quoted as saying on Wednesday.

Russia, a veto-wielding permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, angered the United States earlier this year by announcing plans to sell advanced missile systems to Syria, which Washington has accused of having links to terrorism.

Just a reminder to everyone who would like to forget. This is the same nation that protested the Iraq war (when they had huge financial interests in Saddam Hussein), the country that protested any sanctions or referral to the Security Council of Iran (whom they have huge financial interests in), and now protests any sanctions against Syria… (broken record) whom they have huge financial interests in.

Russia is not fighting the US agenda for noble principles, they are fighting the US agenda for their own pocket book. Maybe this is why the US had to "go it alone" in Iraq?
