Su-24, Su-25, Su-34 are all pulled out. SAA will be in big trouble when Nusra attacks today or tomorrow. Putin will sit back and watch Assad lose Hama city. Putin shows Assad he is nothing without Russian help.
Indeed that will be really embarrassing .
Putin is a disgrace , he basically capitulated to the demands of US and its Gulf Allies
of not retaking northern Syria. And the midget Putin gave Assad the middle finger . Again
Putin Under estimate his enemies , Russia will have to return to save Latakia from being
Being very generous in analysis ,it could be said is an "unknown strategy" , to lure the terrorist
away from its caves knowing no more bombs will hit them. and that there is a hidden army of 20,000 Russians ready to take idlib but i don't think so.
The image of Russia in the world will go downhill , as a nation that you cannot that count
absolutely for nothing. They might sell you weapons ,and give you a hand here or there for a little bit ,but is not something that you can really count as a help.
This is why i really think Russia deserve to be isolated in the world . Serbia should show
Putin the middle Finger and join NATO . And same with Georgia ,Ukraine ,Kazakistan .
So Russia understand we live in a world ,that if you don't lead , you become a follower.
In other words , Russian policies are very dangerous for other nations ,because give them false
hopes and a false confidence. Assad is only attacked by NATO and muslins gulf states ,because they want a gas pipeline from Saudi Arabia to Europe and it needs to travel using northern Syrian territory and from there to Turkey and then Europe. all this to To bypass Gazprom
. Assad should now agree with that pipeline in change for end of the war ,and try to get a good commission and show the middle finger to Russia.
Syria is the way it is ,because Assad was too noble and consider its relations and allies sacred
and refused to betray IRAN or Russia interest. and this is what they got. a backstab from Russia and IRAN too ,which the latest one had a signed defense pact
that clearly state that if any foreign nation invades Syria that IRAN will use its army to defend them. And Turkey army already invaded a few hundreds meters inside Syria. Most of Syria not retaken and Russia help was merely only enough to delay for a little bit the final outcome of the collapse of Syria.
Russia last move ,only seen one of gaining some time ,a few months ,to delay their inevitable war with NATO. Maybe Russia have hopes Trump will win and will save them from a major war.
we will see .but i will not be surprised if Syria start losing territory again. Since the Syrian airforce cannot cover all parts of Syria at the same time. For now on , only a miracle will save Syria from totally collapsing,or simply Luck ,and no country will come to its aid. So there should be no celebrations in Russia.
This is a really shameful chapter of Russia history... And it only confirms , what i was saying
to Gary , that if Russia really wants to oppose NATO expansion and isolation of Russia from the world..as it will happen
.it can only do it by creating more military bases in the world on countries it have interest. Had Russia had the military base in latakia since 2011 , with a dozen of tactical planes there. Idlib and Aleppo will have never fallen and Syria will be in a much stronger position today controlling most of its territory.
Again if Russia refuse to take a leadership position in the world ,then someone else will do it ,
and it will not be in the interest of Russia. In other words.. it means that Putin ,neither Lavrov
can't complain about the western leadership in the world if they refuse to be a leader .
BRICS is nothing but horse shit and China will not move a finger in aid of Russia in case of war .
I think we all can summarize the world is doomed if the only nation that can do something to Stop US , goes running from any conflict at the first opportunity they have.
