    Not only that they supply them with weapons, they provide intelligence and tell them where and when to strike (and more). Why do you think Anasarallah aka Houthis chant "Death to America! Death to Israel!" - It's their war, Saudi Arabia is only executing the dirtiest work and taking the blame.
    Besides, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had its borders drawn and House of Saud placed to rule it by the British crown in the first place.

    Due to the UN and various so-called international organizations for this or that and most of the world in general being dominated by the USrael gang, you can get away with anything as long as you are their stooge-puppet. On the other hand, if you are not part of the gang, your very existence is a crime against humanity or anything they come up with and they won't leave you alone until you are defeated and integrated.

    Yes indeed. The secret of Iran's success is strong ideological government, people unity and missile program which the USrael gang fears so much.
    Even though they would go 'all in' if they had to, one has to admit that without Russia's help under president Putin, there was a possiblity that Iran could've lost Syria and with that Hezbollah presence on Israel border in Lebanon + Iraq influence as well. The whole thing would possibly fall apart. If this happened, Iran would become an easy target and they probably wouldn't be able to survive much longer after that.

    A few years ago, Iran's aid to Assad seemed like precious resources squandered on a lost cause. Now it appears they've won their gamble. Smile


    and with that Hezbollah presence on Israel border in Lebanon + Iraq influence as well. The whole thing would possibly fall apart. If this happened, Iran would become an easy target and they probably wouldn't be able to survive much longer after that.

    The consequences of failure in Syria could've been severe indeed. Dunno if it would've been that severe but bad in any case. Iran was fortunate in another way. The fact that the US, like Iran, was opposed to ISIS meant it had to tolerate Iranian moves throughout much of Syria and Iraq. The US has even invested a lot in strengthening Iraq, even though it now has closer affinity to Iran. Smile

    It's a deep topic and one has to have a lot of background knowledge, and albeit very roughly, I have tried to explain this in my other posts on this forum (Syria, Iraq and Yemen war threads), so you can read them if you want to.

    US was not opposed to ISIS, they were only officially claiming to be opposed to it. On the ground the story was the other way around. One could notice that ISIS was only growing even though US-led coalition was allegedly fighting against it - in reality this was nothing more than a pretext for US/Israel gang to get better access to Syria so they can supply, inform and command their proxies more efficiently. ISIS started taking damage and shrinking only after Russia stepped in. Other than that, the events reported by eyewitnesses in Iraq and Syria, such as choppers dropping supplies to ISIS and evacuating important ISIS figures such as commanders (aka US military commanders and intelligence agents) from battlefields to other fronts, army bases and field hospitals have been mentioned repeatedly on social networks and leaked in non-mainstream media. Syria and Iran said numerous times that US/Israel are behind ISIS and this was the case from day one. Every strategic move ISIS made over the years of its existance was in line with US/Israel goals in the region. Even Russian Defense Ministry stated the obvious a couple of times when they had to deal with US preventing them from fighting ISIS, evacuating them, providing intelligence etc. Last time such incidents happened in Abu Kamal, one of them resulting in Russia being forced to use long range heavy bombers.
    Besides, such an organized and large capable fighting force with loads of weapons on its disposal has to have state sponsors, it's theoretically impossible to be self sufficient and have such capabilities by stealing weapons and selling oil (who buys ISIS oil btw?) stolen from captured oil fields. That's a silly thing to believe, but media does a very good job at making people believe silly things (I used to be a victim as well). So, without US/Israel and their stooges there would be no ISIS to begin with.

    Also, US didn't strenghten Iraq, on the contrary, after invading Iraq they disbanded the Iraqi army and weakened the country as much as possible thus enabling ISIS proxy to take over fast and with close to no resistance when the time was right - and the time was right after they invaded Syria using fake revolution based on proxy Al-Qaeda and other mercenary terrorist (sub-)groups as primary fighting force. ISIS was in Iraq to block Iran from supplying and fighting in Syria, because the main and only land suply routes from Iran to Syria go trough Iraq. It took time for Iraq and Iran to organize the fight against ISIS in Iraq, and US was slowing them down on many levels as they have air/ground military presence and are infiltrated in Iraqi government and newly formed Iraqi army. US didn't exactly tolerate their moves in Iraq - Iraqi PMU, which was backed by Iran and was a leading fighting force against ISIS in Iraq actually refused fighting while the US-led coalition aircraft was operating above them due to leaking of their positions and even "accidental friendly-fire" airstrikes. ISIS is proxy just like any other, but organized and presented differently in order to complete different 'special' tasks. Since Iranians couldn't clean up Iraq on time and simultaneously save Syria from which they were cut off, Russia had to step in.

    I think, there was no flare in time of missile hit the plane. Anyway it is interesting to see, how missile ignore flares launched before and heading dirrectly to the plane, which use afterburners. US AIM-9X went to the flares, launched by Syrian Su-22, but this Russian or Iranian MANPAD? didn't go to the flares launched by Saudi F-15.
