The Russians are finally embarrassed by the way Israel beat s up on its friends, you know the ones, the ones that it seems Russia been reluctant to say to Israel: WTF? ? Stop that crap.
erusalem Post - "Putin has expressed his dissatisfaction from Israel's latest actions in Lebanon" and even emphasized to Netanyahu that he "Rejects the aggression towards Lebanon's sovereignty" something which has never been heard from him. Putin further stated that someone is cheating him in regards to Syria and Lebanon and that he will not let it go without a response. According to him, Netanyahu was warned not to strike such targets in the future.
I would bet money that Putin dropped the F bomb word in place of cheating.
How can the Russians not be seen as heroes? The good guys?
