Russian President Vladimir Putin

(Worthy News) - Vladimir Putin's speech Monday is shaping up to be biggest of this year’s U.N. General Assembly, as Obama administration officials brace for the Russian leader to lambaste their failed Syria policy and call on the world to get behind his plan for saving the war-torn Middle East from the clutches of the Islamic State.

While national security insiders are framing the speech as a propaganda stunt aimed at steering world attention from Moscow’s bad behavior in Ukraine, the U.S. intelligence community is scrambling to assess the true motivations behind Mr. Putin’s recent increase in Russian military support for Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Intelligence sources say a host of factors are at play. Although they caution against viewing Mr. Putin’s moves through a Cold War-era prism, they say there is little question of his desire to project power and poke a geopolitical finger in America’s eye as world leaders gather in New York.

  1. Good for President Putin! Its about time someone had enough intestinal fotitude to do it. Over 350 million Americans, many of which claim they hate Obama, yet continue patting him on the back and allowing him to continue. And yet, one non-American stands up to show them all up. Good for him!

  2. Good. The POS-IN-CHIEF doesn't have 1/10 of the stones to stand up to Putin. Even if he makes threats, the POS has decimated our military might to the point where a banana republic would give us a tough fight. Not just the troops, the equipmemt, and most importantly, morale.
