Who told you that Assad is the losing side?
He has been successfully fighting with the terrorists for 2 years.

Atually all that time we hear that Assad is about to fall down he still stands.

I think he will ouin his outlive Obama like he already outlived Sarkozy.

I'd bet you a case of beer if I could!! Lol, the war has some time to go but look around your countrymen are being evacuated. I'm sure if Putin had confidence like you do they'd all be staying. Sarkozy - Assad : Democracy - Dictator
How do you measure success? Losing bases and ground sending your troops to reinforce positions under assault sure doesn't look like victory. Just saying.
The big question is where is Assad going? Or will he be killed?

I`v been hearing that Assad is losing his battle for 2 years, for how long will have I been hearing the same?

Get real, Assad is not losing anything.
He controlls all the big cities and army and the most of the population are loyal to him.

The only real threat for Assad is invaasion from outside.

Russia is capable to prevent such an invasion.

Would you stay in a place where terrorists are operating?
That says nothing.

Besides, I`m not sure that the real mission of those ships is to evacuate anybody.
They might be carrying weapons to Syrian government.

If there will not be foreign invasion, Asad will finaly win.

The general, leader of the military police, today defected to the Rebels and is fighting against Assad with quite a story to tell, you might want to read up on him before you continue supporting the Assad cause.

This was not yet confirmed.
We heard a lot misinformation about defection of high oficials from Syria which turned out to be a lie.

The most of the elite is loyal to Assad anyways.

You should think twice before to support the cause of islamic terrorists.

Your beloved Libyan rebels had already killed American ambassodor.

Really military generals, politicians, ambassadors, complete units of soldiers misinformation lol!
The elite in Assads power base are now occupied by the rebels. If Assad is a battlefield wiz than explain why Russia is extracting people and will not take Assad?? Libya rebels had militia groups amongst them the US took 2 high ranking members in for an interigation a definite dumb move but that was the reason a militia group attacked. State department should have had better security where were the Marines?? Hillary is being held responsible and will resign soon, quietly.

It started. Russians government reports 2 industrial contractors are now taken hostage, they where working for the steel industry. The journalist captured is being offered for $50 million.( my bet these moves are all insurance to get valued POW's back, when things wind down these prisoner exchanges will be some what discreet)
I don't believe the Russians would be as effective as that Navy Seal Team 6 or the best in the world period the British Special Air Service - I read a restricted document on a SAS & SBS rescue operation in Africa to rescue 17-19 British peacekeepers who where being readied for execution the step by step performance was incredible they killed all the hostage takers in triple digits liberated the hostages unharmed, but tragictly lost one SAS guy from a well placed trip wired land mine. I'd sell the farm that regardless of hostages the Russians do not want to get bogged down with a losing side, they are also denying Assad Asylum so now the arms sales are done the removal of Russians and their friends will be a natural course policy thus ferries and troop ships.( if they massed a complete fleet or missle frigates than ya thats a game changer) Reading real time blogs the rebels are trying to set up road blocks quickly forcing Russia to engage in dialogue with the battlefield commanders. Would be ironic if some arms went to the rebels from Russia for a safe passage from Damascus.


Assad doesn't want asylum,why should he leave his own Country just because those criminal savages in Washington want him out? also you talk about the Russians not being effective in special ops,ever heard of the SpezNatz? i am well aware what the SAS are capable of,WW2 was their finest hour these days they seem to be employed in terrorism.

The terrorists, not rebels but terrorists, because what they are doing in Syria is terrorism, do not controll anything but a small town on the border with Turkey.

Russia is evacuating people from the dangerous area, that`s alright.

Russian minister of foreign affairs said it clearly - Russia do not support any pressure on Assad and imposing no fly zone on Syria.
Russia is not going to ally with American imperialists whatever you want to think.

As for Assad, I don`t worry aabout him, everything will be alright.
Like it has been during the last 2 years.

After that elections will take place and another leader will be put in office.

What I`m sure about is that the next Syrian president will not be your American puppet.

It's far too late to be sending weapons to the Syrian regime. Nothing the Russians send would be capable of stopping a western air campaign. This is why the MiG-29M fighter jets ordered by Syria haven't been delivered. These jets would have proved usefull against the rebels and would even help avoid civilian casualties by using more accurate air to ground weapons. Yet the Russians are too worried that a no fly zone would see these jets destroyed creating a PR disaster for the Russian arms industry and finally finishing off MiG as a company.

Relax and drink moose urine Canadian.

Please Alexey 25 don't encourage Avenger to restart the moose urine, last time he was on it he checked out of Vancouver to holiday in Conundrum, curled up on the tower of London with an infant guerrilla and got the Queen of England pregnant with an infusion of Sin causing the Brotherhood to proliferate. Some things are better left undone.

The Russians are unloading a lot more than just high tech Iskander missiles in Syria, and soldiers man them. This Russian presence in Syria will effectively block any plans for Western military action.

The West acknowledged that their Patriot defense system is no match for the new Russian Iskander missiles that are now being delivered to Syria. The missiles travel at speeds higher than mach 7!

A 60 year old video, how impressive, lol. Show something done in 2012 please.

Why does Assad want asylum, well let me think, because he wants his family to live comes to mind.
