Russia sends warships to Syria for possible evacuation
Russia sent warships to the Mediterranean to prepare a potential evacuation of its citizens from Syria, a Russian news agency said on Tuesday, a sign
President Bashar al-Assad's key ally is worried about rebel advances that now threaten even the capital.
Moscow acted a day after insurgents waging a 21-month-old uprising obtained a possible springboard for a thrust into Damascus by seizing the Yarmouk
Palestinian camp just 2 miles from the heart of the city, activists said.
The anti-Assad opposition has posted significant military and diplomatic gains in recent weeks, capturing a series of army installations across Syria
and securing formal recognition from Western and Arab states for its new coalition.
Russia is claiming that they are doing this because of the recent moves by the anti-Assad forces, but I think Russia is aware of something that is
going to happen soon. As many of us have speculated, it will probably involve military intervention by the West.
In my personal opinion, I think that if the West intervenes, it will be the start of the next World War. It may take awhile to spiral out of control
and get to that point, but I think it will happen sooner rather than later.
What do you guys think?
