It depends what you mean by "the West".
To those whose only view of Germany is "one World Cup and two World Wars" (of which only the one World Cup matters to them), the French are "cheese-eating surrender monkeys", Russia is still the Soviet Union, and China is still being run by Chairman Mao. Well, you can't have a capitalist dictatorship. Can you?
In fact, Russia has reverted to her historic role as the leader among the Slavs' gate-keeping of our Biblical-Classical civilisation against Islam, against Far Eastern domination, and now also against the godless, rootless, meterosexual, hyper-capitalist, stupefied, promiscuous, usury-based, bloodthirsty pseudo-West of those who hold views such as are set out above.
They cheerfully ally with the Islamist terrorism against which Russia is holding out valiantly in Chechnya. Just as they cheerfully allied with the Islamist terrorism against which Russian-allied Yugoslavia valiantly held out in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and against which Russian-allied Serbia is valiantly holding out in Kosovo, faithful to the historic mission of the Slavs, and thus faithful to the True West.
