The country that really saved Assad’s hide was Russia, not Iran. Putin enabled him to terrorize his own country from the air. The Russians have yet to pay a serious price for that. 

Russia is an ally of Syria. Why would Russia not help Syria out then?

Russia is not an "ally" to anyone. And that mass slaughter of civilians can't be called "helping" .

Obama succumbed to extortion from Iran - plain and simple.

The world should just cripple Iran with sanctions to the point that their own people will revolt against the regime.   Severe punishments to nns who break the sanction!  No mercy!

Yeah, let's make the civilians so desparate they'll go running at machine guns with their children!

About 30,000 people were hanged during the last revolution. :rolleyes:

I understand your position, but reality shows us different.

In theory, Russia is there to fight against IS. But in practice, they also attack other anti-Assad rebels, some of which are also backed by the West

Even more realistically they mostly bomb civilians.

Again, reality is telling us something way different.  Even Turkey helped out by giving the rebels a base of operation in Turkey while the USA and Saudi's armed, trained and funded them. These rebels shot mortar rounds into Syria and Syria responded with rounds of their own. Some going long into Turkey. But really Turkey has nothing to complain about here.

The USA/Saudi and their ISIS terrorists were forced out of Syria. But in places like Afghanistan, the Taliban is still a huge problem (occupied by US forces) Iraq is still trying to deal with ISIS (another nation trashed from the 'war on terror'. ) and the crap going on in Yemen.

Don't be stupid, if ME countries stop using US dollar as the medium Of exchange this mins,  US dollar will be worthless an hour later :P

No of course not. OPEC switched from trading I. US currency to Euros because of Iran and the US dollar did not become useless. It's value and use as is the case with the use any currency is based on complex macro and micro level market conditions,

Unless green new deal has been implemented, Euros will take over US currency as the medium Of exchange internationally. With that, all of the countries national bank will dump US dollars / bond from their reserve :lol:

Looks the Brits are letting the Iranian tanker leave Gibraltar:

Because Iran is three times the size of Iraq with a much more capable military and much more dangerous proxies.

The Americans ain't as big and bad as they used to be in relation to adversaries like Iran, so there is no military solution, bombing Iran is not going to decide anything.

Ergo the Brits and Europeans don't want to blow up the nuclear deal, because they know they can't impose their will on Iran in a shooting war.
