Well, this will throw a monkey wrench into overthrowing Syria. Permanent Russian Base.

Russian jets in Syrian skies

Russia has begun its military intervention in Syria, deploying an aerial contingent to a permanent Syrian base, in order to launch attacks against ISIS and Islamist rebels; US stays silent.

Russian fighter pilots are expected to begin arriving in Syria in the coming days, and will fly their Russian air force fighter jets and attack helicopters against ISIS and rebel-aligned targets within the failing state.

According to Western diplomats, a Russian expeditionary force has already arrived in Syria and set up camp in an Assad-controlled airbase. The base is said to be in area surrounding Damascus, and will serve, for all intents and purposes, as a Russian forward operating base.

In the coming weeks thousands of Russian military personnel are set to touch down in Syria, including advisors, instructors, logistics personnel, technical personnel, members of the aerial protection division, and the pilots who will operate the aircraft.

So Putin found his Afghanistan.
He is going to prop up a dictator, expend his own combat troops and equipment.
Where was his Security Council Resolution procedure?

When the US looks sideways at some country everyone throws a tantrum if the US doesn't follow the rules. Putin gets a free pass as usual.

Good, honestly I have been wondering where China and Russia have been during this whole ISIS thing.

Looks like ISIS is getting closer and closer and closer.

Big money at stake.

That's rich. The world did NOTHING while America raped the oil bearing countries. Hindsight should be 50/50..... not completely blind.

"No sir, we don't like it!"

So what happens when Putin attack helicopters target U.S. funded "rebels" fighting *cough, cough* "ISIS"?

Russia and Iran has every right to help the beleaguered Syria

The hypocritical West would have watched ISIS exterminate the Shia Syrians if they had their way.


I just hope they quickly( unlikely) defeat ISIS and those Jihadi rebels so the people of Syria can have some peace

There is quite a difference between the red line from Obama and his socalled proof for using chemicals in an attack by Assad and fight against the islamic extremists.

We should all be ashamed that we have allowed this massacre on the Syrian population.

If the US had its way, they would help IS just like their ally Turkey has been doing in the past weeks.
Accidentally all the bombs fell on kurds that are fighting against IS on the ground.

Russia is and has been a Syrian ally for a long time. He is supporting his ally. What exactly is he doing wrong?

It's not like he is claiming Iraq has WMD and invading a sovereign nation for no reason. He is cleaning up the mess the international war criminals in charge of the USA made by overthrowing Saddam and Gaddafi.

Complete false equivalency. The US illegally invaded a sovereign country, without any aggression on the part of the other (Iraq). The US, in violation of international law, attacked preemptively without a Security Council resolution. ALL preemptive attacks are illegal under international law.

The two are completely different.

No one needs a security council resolution if a country is invited by another country into their borders... Russia is an ally of Syria and invited in willingly. You only need an SC resolution for interfering, stopping fighting, or attacking. without permission from the country, AND if there is a real threat to either other countries or possible genocide.

Moreover, Assad is the legitimate government if Syria. Meanwhile, the West is trying to overthrow the government, which IS illegal under international law. So is funding Rebels and civil wars. The West has propped up the rebels, with the goal of regime change.

Did you know that half of the deaths that the MSN keeps on spouting about are known to have been caused by the rebels?

Exactly, Putin is supporting the sovereign gov of Syria by request. No sc resolution needed.

Why would he prop up a dictator since one is already in place and allied with Russia?

U.S. looks sideways and the world throws a tantrum? What reality are you living in because the U.S./west has had its way with the Middle East for at least well over a decade. If anyone gets a free pass its the U.S./west and definitely not Russia.

Holy ignorance!

Exactly, and the US has been propping up shady dictators since the 50's, probably earlier in Latin America.
