The fool with a hunting rifle still believe that he is going to win against the Syrian army. And the Jerusalem post encourages him telling him the Russians are losing when in fact the rebels are getting a drubbing. May be he should go back hunting jack rabbits. He will be safer.

Ain't gonna happen. Russia is iron-fisted with Islists who terrorize. Chechnya is now at peace.

In fact Russia and Iran should send in some troops to Syria. Lets see who has balls to intervene them. US won't.

I'm a Sunni Muslim and I think Putin and Xi is saving the world to the applause of the great many.
Your a terrorist working with Israel who are investing terminal privation of an eternal nature within themselves.
That means they are the repository of the lavatory.

If rebels come to fight in country like Vietnam and China, they can only last a few days.

It is because the rebels (from Tunisia, Libya, Lebanon, Sudan, etc) do look like Syrians, so can mix in with the population.

So Asian countries are safe from these rebels!

No ! Its the political religious philosophy .
That is the real concern.
If its successful it will infest every Sunni Mosque in every part of the world.
If it fails the introverted fiends will be taken over in Saudi Arabia by the progressive element and eliminate the Brotherhood coming from Qatar and Turkey.
Then Islam will truly be united under the guidance of the Caaba *-* "man's resort and Holy retreat".

This has something to do with the nature of Russia and Russian tradition - if Russians make a promise - they keep it. So if they did business with Assad - they are not going to sell him out so easily. That goes for anyone who does business with Russia. I don't think Russia really wishes to actively support Assad or anybody else - they want to do business, but they don't want to get involved. What they definitely don't want is US in their backyard... On the contrary US never keep a promise - they always lie and backstab in international politics.

There shouldn't have never been a war.
There was a protest on Syria for reforms and lifting emergency rule on the country.
And Assad had promised reforms and had lift emergency rule.
Reforms don't happen in a week, it takes time.
The protest should have ended there and I am sure the actual Syrian citizens/protesters would have done that.

But because the foreign extremist didn't want the protest to end and they started the arm fight. And here they are... Syria pushed back more than 100 years, with threat of Foreign extremists taking over and will take years to reach the condition it was before war.

If anyone is to blame, it is themselves and their foreign supporters, not Russia.

Assad refused two pipeline proposals to send fuel to Europe ( France, Germany...) prior to the problems. Russia currently provides the fuel, and sees the pipeline as a threat to national security for economic reasons. Mixed with excessive Syrian security forces behavior. Recall originally how the people not the west took to the streets in outrage as a young boy was arrested for spray painting Arab spring writings on walls, his punishment the police performed was torture and murder involving cutting his penis off, putting it in his mouth then having the gull to drop the deceased body off at his parents home... As it lay in the streets and the police drove away locals became outraged and took to the streets not Jews, not Americans, not mercenaries as I read here all the time. So as Russia vetoed deployment of United Nations peacekeepers from the international community and blocked any intervention to end the conflict and endlessly supplies war equipment and logistics... Even putting Russian soldiers boots on the ground manning Syrian radar stations any neutral 3rd party can wrap their head around this as a Russian fueled conflict with no will for peace. Another reason you all know is the strategic Russian naval port that the rebels will immediately close once they take the entire nation. The tangled web Putin weaves, if you are Syrian Putin is no angel or helping hand but an active participant in the oppression by the state dictator. Even if the evil NATO forces stopped the war deposed Assad the death toll would likely have been 2,000 plus or minus not the 80-120,000 the UN reports.

Aren’t you getting tired of singing that the same worn out song: selling the fake stories to promote war?

Wrong again. Assad refused because Syria also has petroleum it sells to Europe - Germany and France. He refused because Syrian petroleum exports account for 23% of Government revenue. If they let somebody else pass their oil or whatever through their territory - then who on Earth would buy Syrian oil? What you write here only identifies the main culprits behind this war -Germany and France, also US and Canada,i.e. the NATO Terrorists who started this war - they are the only one's who win...

I'm not talking of Chechnya moron. Do you know how many Ruskis go to Turkey and Egypt as tourists? I wouldn't be surprised if some of them start disappearing or end up without heads.
