The capsule cradles were originally invented in the former Soviet Union in the 1960s by military engineers. They are currently being produced in a factory near Moscow.

Syria was the first thing to come to mind. While the actual perpetrators of the recent massacre in Syria is still unclear, the Australian and US governments have already kicked out the Syrian embassy staff and now petitioning for a UN resolution to use force. With our western media in with the rebels it is not too hard to work out who is trying to destabilise the place. This pressure has been going on for a while now, but looks like it is starting to heat up as it is following many of the similar patterns as with Libya. The fireworks should not be too far away unless something quickly comes along to shake things up.
With Russia having a navy base in Syria, it looks like they have been trying to hold it together. But for whatever behind the scene reasons this may be at risk and precautions for escalation are under way.
