The Russians have been a little slow to catch on to this,even now Lavrov calls Nato our Western partners,don't know if he is being diplomatic or if he really believes it.

I believe this is an excellent article and does show both sides. Russia has said quite emphatically that the ships on the way are to remove Russian citizens that want to leave, they have also stated that the soldiers manning the air defense system are not Russian.

The Russians do NOT support Assad, they support Syria and that is the difference. Russia wants the Syrian people to be responsible for the regime change or to keep Assad in power, there is a difference.

i saw a report that twenty four Iskander missiles have been deployed in Syria twelve pointing at Turkey where the US have just sent troops and missiles,and twelve pointing at Jordan where Terrorists are being trained before going into Syria,i believe those Iskander missiles will be operated by Russian military personnel, and you admit for the first time that Russia wants the Syrian people to decide its future,well done George.

One good false flag operation could really ignite a flaming mess in this region with a war no one wants and one nobody would be able to figure out how it started afterwards.This is none of our business.

The Russians are against the Western agenda of "regime change". Those ships are unloading state of the art Iskander missiles, which are being placed there to DEFEND the Syrian government against foreign assault, and to effectively neutralize NATO's Patriot Missile systems. Russia opposes this "rebellion", and only wants diplomatic solutions.

I think you need to read up on the patriot system, it is a defense system not an offense system.

LOL

You keep thinkin' that, little buckeroo. What's a better offense than to have a defense behind your offense neutering the other guy's defense/offense/nonsense?

Finally, a true 1st strike capability in my twilight years! Yahoooooo!!

At last your talking sense now, Only Syrians can decide who their president may be through a political process, arming rebels will and has done nothing but caused death and destruction.

But it can be used to take out Syrian missiles targeted at rebel poisons on Syrian soil, as well as to defend against incoming missiles in condjunction with a Western air assault. It is ineffective against Russian Iskander missiles, which travel at Mach 7 or higher.

Here is some updates on the missiles in question
Yeah, we know. They basically stink. They couldn't even take out half of Sadist Hussein's first generation scuds.

It's probably just window dressing to pacify Turkey.

Assad has no interest in attacking Turkey. Those Russian missiles and personnel will block any Western notions of a military intervention in Syria.
