Since 2009, we have seen Russia and NATO states in direct engagements, which was followed by a deescalation and passing the fighting on to the proxy forces on the ground. Mainly the NATO and GCC back Free Syrian Army and Al-Nusra.
The West has barely lifted a finger of their collective military capability since 1945.
