    Russia does not left Syria. She still maintains a mininal force enough to respond if things suddenly take a serious change.

    But after all, Assad is the legitimate leader of Syria and he has to act like one.

    Russia does not plan to create puppet-state. She needs reliable ally. Assad has to be self-reliant.

    "Russian warplanes continued bombing in Syria and "fewer than 10" departed the region following President Vladimir Putin's stunning announcement that his forces had accomplished their mission and a partial withdrawal had begun, Pentagon officials said.

    "We have seen some Russian aircraft depart Syria and return to Russia but we have not seen a large contingent of Russian forces" pulling out, said Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook. "So we'll have to wait and see like everybody else what the Russians do in regard to President Putin's reference to a partial withdrawal. Cook said that the remaining Russian aircraft carried out airstrikes Tuesday. He did not say how many strikes were conducted or specify where the targets were located, but said that the airstrikes appeared to be aimed at areas controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). "I'm not aware that any of these strikes technically violated" the Feb. 27 cessation of hositilities" that was agreed to earlier this month by the U.S., Russia and other nations through the mediation of special United Nations envoy Staffan de Mistura. The cessation of hostilities excluded ISIS and the Al-Qaeda- affiliated Al-Nusra Front.

    Cook said he could not give a figure on the number of Russian planes that have left Syria but "fewer than 10 is what we've seen." Russia was believed to have 45-50 warplanes in Syria, including advanced Su-34 bombers, Su-24M bombers and Su-25 attack aircraft. Most of them have been flying out of the Russian-controlled Hmeymim airbase, also known as Khmeimim, near the northwestern city of Latakia. Despite the announced withdrawal, Russia has said that it will maintain control of the Hmeymim airbase and the small Russian naval base near Latakia that has been its only base in the region for decades. Putin's announcement initially appeared to catch the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as much off guard as the West but a Syrian official later claimed that al-Assad had been kept in the loop. "We were not surprised because the decision was made in coordination and consultation with us," Bouthaina Shaaban, a senior adviser to al-Assad told CNN.

    "We knew beforehand that this is what was going to be announced because the Russians came here to achieve certain jobs, and we and they agreed that most of the jobs have been achieved," she said. In making the announcement Monday, Putin said that "the task that was assigned to the Ministry of Defense and the armed forces as a whole has achieved its goal." Putin's move came as Syria entered its sixth year of a civil war that has claimed at least 250,000 lives, sent more than four million refugees into neighboring countries and caused a refugee crisis in Europe. Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday that he would go to Moscow next week to meet with Putin to discuss the way ahead but added that "we have reached a very important phase in this process."

    In a statement Tuesday, Russia's Ministry of Defense said that its troops in Syria were loading equipment and gear into cargo planes to prepare for the withdrawal. The ministry said that the warplanes leaving Syria would be accompanied by military transport aircraft and would be making stops at airfields in Russia for refueling, as some were homebased more than 3,000 miles from Syria."

    Putin has knowingly put Russians in great danger. He poked the Hornets nest. Jihadists in Syria were neutral to Russia before the intervention. Now they hate Russia to the bone and traveling through Ukraine and Turkey and Georgia they will do car bombs in Russia.

    Get over yourself... the hornets nest was there... whether it is poked or not hornets are fucked up insects that need to be wiped out... whether Russia keeps bombing in Syria or not Russians should always act like they are in great danger because those ISIS fuckers are nuts.

    Russia killed thousands of jihadists, but they were very quickly replaced by new ones.

    Yeah.... just kill more... that worked in Vietnam for the US... NOT.

    A political agreement between syrians will mean it is not just the Syrian government forces fighting ISIS... it will be all real syrians fighting ISIS.

    In America people can criticize the president without fear of retaliation. Even on this forum people are not allowed to criticize Putin or they get banned.

    America has freedom of speech. Russia does not have freedom of speech.

    This forum is not Russia or the US and I have banned no one for their opinion.

    America free speech my Ass... a lady reporter with 30 or 40 years experience one day remarks that perhaps the Palestinians are not being treated very well in Israel and she is forced to resign... yeah.. the world needs that sort of free speech.

    Regarding Putin... if Syria is so fucking weak it needs the Russian air force to be its mommy then it does not deserve to survive. Fuck them.

    I didn't pay too much attention before...just skipped over the posts. But the insistent and persistent screeching has got louder and louder.
    It is bizarre the mods are basically letting him spam away, the same message over and over again in multiple threads, like a 9 year old with a mental defect.

    There are no rules against being a whiney little bitch.

    Why be ally with someone who will stab you in the back?

    If you truly mean that then Assad can have no ally.

    Putin has just withdrawn the Russian AF aircraft in Syria... he has not said he has stopped supporting the legal government of Syria.

    If the political process moves forward then the Syrian military will absorb a lot of new troops from opposition groups and become much bigger and more powerful.

    Rebels mock Putin. They say they will kill Assad the way they killed Najibullah.

    What do you expect them to say?

    And why would you listen to them?

    Putin lost Ukraine, and now Syria

    Russia and Putin never HAD either.

    That's it, you spotted the real reason those planes were brought home. They are running out of star space russia

    I expect at least one will be on its way back to the factory for deep analysis.

    So 25 has done 330 missions (10 per star)? Strewth Bruce!  respekt

    I wasn't really referring to Syria. I was mainly referring to Iran. Keep in mind that Iran has a population that is several times its officially claimed population.

    par far wrote:The Iranian foreign minister to do the same thing as Russian ministers do in US vassal states of the EU, business, can you tell me why Russia is selling gas and oil to the EU? EU countries are vassals of the US.

    Are you seriously comparing Iran's role in these kind of interactions with Russia's? Don't you think their roles in these interactions are the opposite of each other if anything?

    If what I am saying is not true, then why wouldn't the Iranians step in to fill this role in Syria that according to you has been vacated by Russia? I am not saying that the "Iranians" wouldn't, but they would be the "Iranians" that are a minuscule minority in Iran.

    par far wrote:I am going to assume you are Russian, ..., have you volunteered yet? ...

    I am not Russian.

    But you are missing the point or pretending to.

    It is Iran, not Russia, that has to stop punching below its weight. Don't you think that you and the rest of Iranians volunteering is needed to address the situation? Instead, you want your foreign minister skylarking here in Australia, for you to have all the fun in the world, and for the Russians to save Damascus and Tehran?

    Su-25s have pulled out. Su-24s leave tomorrow. Followed by Su-35 and Su-30. No plane will be left at the Latakia base.

    None of them do, this was not religious war (for Russia at least). Casualties, heroes, KIAs, etc... take your pick but not martyrs. That would imply whole different ballgame...

    It seems RuAF will replace Su-24 and Su-25 with Ka-52 and Mi-28N. Also there is more than 12 Su-24 jets in Hmeymim, so some of them will stay there. I think they will just return home jets, which are in Syria from September.
