Shouldn't this be in the Breaking Alternative News section rather than World War 3? Just saying.

Isn't this what happened in Libya during the Western backed rebellion against Gaddafi?
One leaves and the others see how well off s/he is and decide to follow?
Besides, the Russians won't be giving the Syrians their attack helicopters because the transport company is insured by a British company and had their insurance revoked because of it.
The only way they will be getting those helicopters back is if they freight them over land and then use the Black Sea to ship it down the Syria.
If Syria demands that MiG back then the Jordanians will have to comply or they will end up on Syria's target list when they decide to loose off a few of their Chem. weapons.
I have a sneaking suspicion that when the West intervenes in Syria we are going to see Iran's air power swell and their regional power rise significantly.
