Partner with Putin

Re Patrick Buchanan’s Nov. 18 column, We teamed with Stalin, we can team with Putin: I agree with its substance. Vladimir Putin has extended his hand to the U.S. to join Russia as its ally in fighting ISIS. President Obama has declined that invitation.

History has shown that when a common enemy arises, all resources should be combined to fight that evil irrespective of who is your ally. Sure, we don’t like Putin. We don’t like Iran, either, but they wish to crush and destroy ISIS. In that regard, they’re our allies.

Winston Churchill once said, “If the devil himself was fighting Germany, I would make a favorable reference to him in the House of Parliament.” Obama should let history be his guide.
