Putin’s Russia shocked the world, and Western elites, with their lightning fast move to fight ISIS in Syria. Caught off guard, the American empire is further demonizing Putin and Russia in the process in a desperate bid to save face. But they don’t have a leg to stand on. From the shredded tatters of democracy on US soil to the transparent joke of a foreign ‘War on Terror’, decades of imperial hubris have left them wide open to having the entire facade crumble. The resurgence of Russia has exposed the man behind the curtain, and the US has nowhere to go but down.
