The Russian forces are blunt instruments.they aren't a defensive force that would aid anyone.If they show up in Syria they would be crucified by the UN or kill the observers.

If anything, the Russians will deploy some forces to secure their Naval installation as the rest of Syria deteriorates and goes to crap.
Smart move on the Russian's part.

So any more news on this? Any more sources? Or has this just spiraled into a philisophical "what if Russia sent troops to Syria" thread?

Jesus, looks like the Ruskis aren't taking any chances.
I doubt they will be bringing tanks but they could easily carry a few hundred marines with some heavy firepower (GPMGs, Mortars, RPGs, MLANs etc)
