    The thing is that whilst the west views russia as aggressive and expansionist; the russians view the west in exactly the same way. It was the west that decided to go in in libya.You can hardly blame putin if he didn't want the same thing to happen in syria.It is the west that is constantly vilifying russia in the media.Banning them from the paralympics because of drugs cheats for example.Russian athletes were definitely not the only ones doping and yet it was them that got banned.The west has been keeping up the mantra that assad must go for like 5 years now.Its been making out that he is basically satan incarnate.But America and Britain are more than happy to cosy up to the saudis who are just as bad as assad.The saudis also support and sponsor terrorism.They are on the UN human rights council and our flag was lowered when their king died.The ruler of bahrein was another leader famous for alleged human rights abuses yet he was invited for tea with the queen! The west likes to pretend it has the moral high ground; that its the good guys and russia are the bad guys.The truth is that nothing is black and white, its just shades of grey.N either country has the moral high ground.
    This is very true. That said, it is in our self interest to oppose Russia given the current economic distribution of the world (they are a second rate country in that regard, we should support the expansion of western values and the market).
