Obama shows duplicitous side

AS Barack Obama feigns concern over Ukraine's sovereignty, due to Russia's intervention, the United States, according to the Israeli daily Haaretz, is busy constructing runways for aircraft near the border between Jordan and Syria to facilitate Saudi Arabia's deliveries of weaponry and ammunition purchased in Ukraine destined for anti-Assad militias.

This, the article says, is in preparation for a large military operation that will originate in Jordan and will attempt to reach Damascus.

So much for the sovereignty in other countries.
