Russian Troops On Israeli Soil?

President Vladimir Putin said Monday that Russia would consider contributing troops to an international peacekeeping force in the Middle East if the United Nations approves its deployment.

That's a mouthful of nothing really. The UN has repeatedly attempted to deploy UN peacekeepers to the Middle East, but the United States has always vetoed the attempt, and it only takes one veto.

Putin knows that, so he's just mouthing platitudes for his Arab fans.
