And Lavrov is right about it being against international law, but Soleimani was not acting in accord with international law, which is another reason I don't think he had the Ayatollahs' blessing for half the shit he'd been pulling, so, yes, Russia's neutrality on this is quite evident already.

That doesn't mean they'll stand back and let Iran be turned to glass, but it means they are decidedly on the side of the de-escalation Pompeo says is the goal.

That doesn't mean it's Pompeo's goal, but I think it's Trump's.

pipe up any time....
