Reader’s comment: Hit the oligarchs instead


In response to Patrick Benham-Crosswell: Syria is a mess, Mrs May. Leave it alone, cromercrox wrote:

Read Ambrose Evans-Pritchard’s piece in today’s Torygraph, which shows that Russia’s economy is contracting rapidly. In 2015 it was the size of Texas, now it’s more like Benelux. Now that Putin and his klepto-cronies have reamed it out, it is almost worthless. So the best thing we can do for Syria is turn the screws even more tightly on the ability of the oligarchs to launder their ill-gotten gains in London and elsewhere.
