George Soros did not hold back in a recent publication of his when he stated that the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, could not be a potential ally in the international strife against the Islamic State. The reason, Soros implies, stems from an agenda that is entirely Putin’s in which Soros argues that Putin seeks to expedite the disintegration of the European Union. Soros goes on to condemn Putin’s acts of war in Syria that has casued innocent refugees, in which Soros has reached out to, to have to flee to other countries. This “tactic” thinking of Putin’s was complimented by Soros himself, who quickly noted that Putin lacked calculation in disguising his true intentions, which has since put him in a quarrel with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, harming both of their agendas. Soros speculates that Russia and the European Union are heading for total collapse, and wonders which one will fall first. Soros also theorizes that the collapse of Putin’s regime is inevitable and that a shift to the collapse of the European Union instead could potentially foil the former’s downfall altogether. Though taking the threat of ISIS seriously, Soros concludes that it is the underlying threat of Russia that ought to concern political figures around the world and that such obliviousness could breed a complex issue that could be difficult to hinder or contain.
