The US military THANKED the Russians for easing tensions on the Syria/Jordan border!

Thanks to Iowa61 for the link!

The U.S. military thanked Russia on Friday for intervening with the Syrian regime to ease tensions with U.S.-backed rebel forces on the Jordanian border.

"We asked the Russians to help," and the Russians have been "very helpful" in limiting clashes between the partnered force at the border town of Al Tanf and forces of the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad backed by Hezbollah fighters, said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman.

At a Pentagon briefing, Davis stressed that the U.S. had no direct contacts with the Syrian regime but used the so-called "deconfliction channels" with Russia to convey concerns over the situation on the border and warn that the U.S. retains the right to self-defense.

Well done Pentagon for using your brain housing group and defying the conventional, inside the beltway thinking that we could not work with the Russians on issues of mutual interest!

Well done Russia for ignoring the cold warriors, neo-con zealots and establishment forces in my country that want to paint you as the new big bad.

Oh and for those that still cling to the idea that Russia is a threat?  Read the article again and understand how wrong you are.  The last thing we need is ANOTHER HOTSPOT and the Russians just helped us prevent one.

Needless to say I'm pleased.
