Pleased that Russia has told America enough is enough
Russia is backing Assad, who is a mass murderer, because Assads regime is the primary purchaser of Russias weapons. It's a money thing for Russia.
They turn a blind eye to Assads bloodbath.
America is backing the rebels, who are really Al Qaeda murderers, terrorists, and thugs.
Neither America nor Russia are backing THE PEOPLE who are being slaughtered.
Both America and Russia are backing evil. Plain and simple.
It's got nothing to do with Assad buying Russian weapons.
What it is about is geopolitics.
The Middle East, and the Eastern Mediterranean are strategic points on the map.
Russia has lost a lot of ground in the Mediterranean as a whole and the Middle East in general since the fall of the Soviet Union.
Syria is it's last real bastion in the region.
On the Syrian coast, the Russian's have a naval station at Tartus. It has existed since Soviet times.
If Syria falls to pro western forces, then Russia will lose it's last port in the Mediterranean. Russia will not allow this to happen. Therefore
Russia will back Assad.
America wants to remove Russian influence in the region completely, so started this civil war in Syria and will back it's side in it.
Caught in the middle are the Syrian people.
