Well that's a legit question. After Libya many thought Syria would be a cake walk, too.
I was one of the first posters who felt that the Russians would block it. Even Pepe Escobar thought the source of the resistance in Syria would come
from several factions. Right outcome, wrong reason.
The US warmacht would have just steamrolled the factions if the Russians gave even a tacit approval of a "no fly zone".
Fast forward to the present. The Iranians believe the road to Tehran leads through Damascus. And the Russians believe that the road to Moscow starts
in Damascus, then Tehran, then there.
The phoney freedom fighters are cutouts or just cookie cutter duplicates. It's a thousand dollars a day for them in gold, purchased by fiat
The Russians kept the road open in 2008 in Georgia. Remember Bush and Putin on opening day at the olympics? That very night.
Anyhow, got to go.
