There is a war for power and the balance is shifting incredibly close to the side that supports Rights restriction and things that look very much like forms of slavery.
This is not to say Russia is the 'Golden Savior', however Russia is the blockade that helps maintain the balance of sanity in the World currently (Irony served mainly to Americans), whatever sanity remains.

America fell a long time ago and we are currently reaping what has been sewn.
"The Islamic Front includes the Ahrar al-Sham, Jaysh al-Islam, Suqour al-Sham, Liwa al-Tawhid, Liwa al-Haqq, Ansar al-Sham, and the Kurdish Islamic Front. Jaish al-Islam, or Army of Islam, is itself a coalition of mercenary groups funded and supported by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey. Although the front reportedly excluded al-Nusra and the al-Qaeda inspired Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham (ISIS), it shares a radical jihadist ideology.
Jaysh al-Islam, formerly known as Liwa al-Islam or the Islam Brigade, is supported by Saudi Arabia and has cooperated with al-Nusra, the most successful and vicious fighting group in Syria that has pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. This collaboration is left unmentioned in corporate media reports on the new Islamic alliance." -infowars
