Dear Editor,

When Syria was taken under the wing of Russia and the man that barrel-bombed his people with chemical weapons was adopted as a part of the Russian nasty presidential protection society the US President Barack Hussein Obama made the statement that Syria would cross the line with the US if it attacked their people again with chemical weapons. Well, it did, and he did nothing.

They did it again and new President Donald Trump's two operationally successful military attacks put a massive dent in that argument. But it was too late after allowing them the first time.

Nice deal for President Vladimir Putin. The Russian state put all the money in along with military support for Syria. Putin then gets the credit and payback from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Can't get better than that. The fate of Syria is now in Russia's hands. Of course, Russia's friend, Iran, is also elated because it is now left entrenched in Syria.

Now Putin is strengthened by his success against the perceived weak US who spend more time on trying to lodge false claims about President Trump than watching what is happening in its backyard. The Russians will soon be going into Venezuela like rats up a drainpipe.

Same deal for Putin except in Venezuela there are gold and uranium mines. He will take the gold as his payment; there is no oil or cash, Russia has already taken that. The Iranian allies who will follow closely behind will get the uranium — lovely stuff. Venezuela has large deposits in its mineral-rich Bolivar and Tachira states, which have been actively mined by the Iranians since Hugo Chavez did a deal with them in Tehran. This source is also the main supply for North Korea's uranium used in its nuclear warheads now aimed at the US.

The Russians are masters at chess, so unless you continually match and outmatch their moves, they will wipe the board clean and leave you wondering what happened.

Then you will see all the little creeps crawling out of the woodwork in the Caribbean, begging the Russians to use their airports. Ralph Gonsalves will be first in line because his St Vincent and the Grenadines airport is a failure for use in tourism. Welcome, Vladimir, no, we don't have US dollars or oil, or gold and uranium, but we do have an endless supply of pig foot and chicken back. What do you mean Russians don't eat that crap? Vincentians are brought up on it!

How about weed? If you legalise it in Russia, you can become king of weed; that's green gold, you know. I can come to Moscow with all my family on a usual jolly up, you can pay, and I will arrange that we vote for you at the United Nations.

Uncle Sam, Russia will soon own all your backyard. Are you going to allow that? And sooner than you think possible; the plan is already hatched.

Jolly Green
