    Coz we look at it from the sky, or from crappy videos that always film the "highway" as you say. Actually its not that bad at all.

    Previously, Russia had just the Tartous Naval base (which is not much of a base).

    Now, even if the RuAF does not fly combat missions, Russia has a major airbase in Syria and they are there to stay. It is a major strategic change in geopolitics.
    Even the Soviet Union did not have a base in the Mediterranean.

    We all love to see Russia bomb jihadists. Me included. Fact remains. Russia is 1 country. On the other side is a pack of wolves. Who are the wolves? The wolves include the US, France, Britain, Canada, Australia, Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, etc. If Russia bombs jihadists, you can bet the wolves will bomb SAA. There is a good saying in Chinese: even a tiger cannot fight a pack of wolves. This is why, if Assad asks Putin to bomb jihadists, then Assad will be killed by jihadists within a year. This is why Putin will never bomb jihadists. This is why this is saber rattling to get the west to drop sanctions on Russia.

    Simple.

    As much as Israel is a very impressive military country, their total manpower mixed in with lack of numerical superiority, they would be big trouble. Turkey may have a large army, but mostly outdated and not quite in same numerical superiority. In terms of being in Syria, yeah, Russia would have a massive issue with them. But they wouldn't dare attack Russian troops due to the Russians would strike very hard in their homelands causing far more devastation than they could counter.

    Not gonna happen of course. But whatever.

    Won't happen because Putin will never do air strikes against jihadists without American approval. This is all nothing but saber rattling just like what Putin did on the border of Ukraine.

    Sabre rattling while NAF lost two thirds of Donbas and all of Kharkov.

    If Russia bombs jihadists, then the US, Britain, France, Israel, Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Canada, Australia will bomb SAA and jihadists will conquer Syria next year. So I don't think Putin will ever dare to do air strikes against jihadists.

    True. But Saudi air power can demolish SAA because SAA is a regular army not a guerilla force. SAA don't have S-300 and Saudi air power can wipe out SAA air defense in like a day using advanced F-15E jets.

    Last I checked, NAF was quite a bit larger, excluding Slaviansk, than at start of conflict.

    Neither Saudi Arabia, nor NATO, nor the US, hell, not even Israel has launched these game changing airstrikes against the SAA as you're speculating, and that was before Russian aircraft were in the Syria.

    Think again.. because Russian pilots are already bombing Syria ,helping the Syrian army
    in some zones.. albeit in limited way.. still their new weapons ,new satellite intelligence
    is dramatically increasing Syrian army capabilities.

    About S-300s.. Syria don't need them.. Pantsirs and Buks missiles are quite capable of doing
    the same job is not better... if you have them in enough numbers.. there will be like mine fields
    that the NATO airforces or Saudi Arabia will not know is there until hit them. And Saudi Arabia
    F-16s pose no threat to Syria.. only Israel and Turkey are.. but they cannot sustain a long war
    with Syria.. not even 24 hours non stop fight.. without a Russian major warning and or retaliation.

    Israel cannot start a war in Syria with Russia Airforce there.. and if they attack Russia Airforce
    ,then Russia will be on its legitimate right to fight back.. and retaliate , Russia can bomb the military base from where the plane came. Russia is not flying over Israel.is flying over Syria fighting ISIS. This means that the international opinion will be on the side of Russia and not Israel.. Israel bombing Syria will be an illegal aggression. and the pressure will be on their side to stop.

    About Saudi Arabia attacking Syria? lol Good luck with that.. their pilots are not even Saudis but foreigners... and those F-16s will fall from the sky like flies.. already Yemenis have shut down near a dozen of them using cheap manpads and they dont have airforce.

    Go back to /pol/ or /k/ man. No one needs you here, seriously - why are the mods not stopping you from shitposting the entire thread, threads. I have seen you go on too many of them and start spraying BS like a MAC 10. You think you know too much about everything right man ? Too bad for us. Anyways, i dont talk to lightweights.
