Will US Grasp Putin's Syria Lifeline?

• consortiumnews.com

Russian President Vladimir Putin has thrown U.S. policymakers what amounts to a lifeline to pull them out of the quicksand that is the Syrian war, but Official Washington's neocons and the mainstream U.S. news media are growling about Putin's audacity and challenging his motives.

For instance, The New York Times' lead editorial on Monday accused Putin of "dangerously building up Russia's military presence" in Syria, even though Putin's stated goal is to help crush the Sunni jihadists in the Islamic State and other extremist movements.

Instead, the Times harrumphs about Putin using his upcoming speech to the United Nations General Assembly "to make the case for an international coalition against the Islamic State, apparently ignoring the one already being led by the United States."
