    War On Syria: Latest Military Movements (Map)



    I am seeing reports on Twitter that the BBC has said that the 2 russian warships that I assume are joining the Russian Mediterranean Squadron, 12 ships total, were sent out there to ‘protect Syria’. I cannot confirm this, I have notbeen able to so far at least so take that with a grain of salt. There is alot of misinformation, hype and war propaganda to sift thru. One astounding development that has turned out to be true though is Saudi Arabia’s threat of terrorist actions against Russia if they do not stop their support of the Assad regime. Why Syria is so important to both Saudi Arabia and Russia im not sure but the Saudis offered Russia more or less control of the oil industry and threatened to unleash terror attacks on the 2014 Sochi olympics and Russia said no, we will stick with Assad. Perplexing right? Saudi Arabia has control of elements if not all of the salafist, jihadi militants fighting in Russia in the North Caucasas region which Sochi is just outside on the Black Sea coast. So as far as that development goes, if Sochi is hit with attacks, we will know who to blame. Will the west then stand up to Saudi Arabia, tthats an emphatic no, but more importantly, will Russia.

    Hi, Cool, whassup?

    The map is interesting but it doesn't show the full force of Russian navy vessels in the Mediterranean Sea, or the Russian navy base at Tartus, Syria. Also, the Syrians are supposed to have no more than about 100 operational aircraft, and some of them are in pretty crappy shape. Not trying to dis you at all, just trying to put things a little more in perspective. The Russians have been building up their presence in the Mediterranean for several years now, and Putin is very motivated to keep that force strong and make it stronger.

    oh. I see. after a little walk he has decided to turn it over to congress. lolol.

    and then he went to the golf course.

    Up-chuck Todd said that it's so great of Barry to return some power to Congress. If Congress had any sense they'd be enraged at that remark. But......
