I agree Russia only cares about itself and if you think they do you have to be a fool.russia only cares about itself.russia either have enemies or vassals.
thats why they are on syria's side not to lose a strategic point which they use since soviet era.
not because they like syria a lot.
syria is already a hopeless case though.its almost on the edge of destruction.
russian imperialism is no different than western imperialism.
Syria is going to fall. It's only a matter of days. Assad well be shot and life well move on. Well there ever be peace in the Middle East ... NO never. Muslims well kill each other if the don't have anyone else to kill. It is what it is and always well be. It's been like this from the beginning of time. It's in the Bible that their well Never Be Peace in the Middle East.
