Munich 2016: A Bear In A Dove Suit (cartoon by Sergei Elkin)

Anybody who was expecting Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to make conciliatory noises at the Munich Security Conference must have been severely disappointed.
And anybody who was expecting the cease-fire agreement reached in Munich last week to result in an actual cease-fire must be severely disappointed as well.
Not only is Russia's bombing campaign in Aleppo continuing, but now Turkey and Saudi Arabia are threatening to send in ground troops -- something Moscow says could lead to a global conflict.
