Why are you not considering the option that they are withdrawing because their presence is no longer necessary in Syria, because they accomplished their goal to help the legal government against the western backed terrorists and + ISIS.

You are wrong on all points. Just like the Western Pundits on social media.
As I have been saying for sometime Russia simply can not sustain a long term campaign in Syria
I will say this again as i said before earlier in this thread.
Its only Russia thats interested in a stably Syria and interested in bringing peace to the Syrian people. The airstrikes have being targeting both ISIS and Islamist rebel groups loyal to America, the Saudis.
As for your claims that Russia simply can not sustain a long term campaign in Syria that's simply not quite true. America has being bombing in Syria for two years and can you tell me what Western nations have achieved in Syria?
i thought as much..
If your Assad you have be getting nervous. First Iran starts pulling out and that is offset by Shia Iraqi militias but, nobody is going to replace the Russians. So Assad has to really push hard for Iran to send more and hope Hezbollah and the Iraqi and Lebanese militia's do not take off as well. To make matters worse the areas recaptured are wrecked because the Russian are still using dumb bombs. If Assad was smart he would fly to Russia and never come back. Otherwise he is going end up dead.
LOL So you prefer Syria to be another failed state like Libya is now? havent you learned anything from Libya? seriously what are you taking?
I know your Anti Russian on here.
Putin has shown he cares about the stability of Syria, the west has only being interested in chaos in Syria, and nothing more.
Killing, removing Assad doesn't wont bring stability to Syria
it seems the Saudis and this fake Opposition haven't gotten the memo what happened with Libya.
Someone has being quite busy trying to turn Syria into another Libya.
The majority of Syrians do not want the opposition nor do they wanted the Arab Spring to happen, Syrians in Aleppo were pretty much agaisnt the rebels.
You know why Syria wasn't able handle those fighting against them?
Turkey has being a supporter of terrorists in Syria.
If Anything all these small attacks in Turkey are false flags so they can use as an excuse to attack Kurds towns.
He's learnt all he can about the US positions, capabilities and goals..
he gave his pilots and his military men some real world experience... Syria paid for it and gave them future guaranties.. all the while assisting Assad stop another Iraqi invasion from occurring..
The west cannot give up their goal to remove Assad, it would unravel the entire thing and be a long trail back the culprits.

Huh.. I must have missed it with Russia withdrawing from Syria. Was ISIS defeated? That was the reason Putin gave for the intervention.
But Mr Pankov said a Russian air group would remain. "Certain positive results have been achieved... However, it is too early to talk about victory over terrorism. A Russian air group has the task of continuing to strike terrorist facilities," he was quoted by Ria news agency as saying. Another senior official, upper house defence committee head Viktor Ozerov, said as many as two battalions - some 800 servicemen - could remain in Syria after the withdrawal to guard Hmeimim and the naval base at Tartous, Interfax news agency reported. Military advisers training Syrian government troops would also stay, he added.
