Just stating a fact
Typical- Then by all means support your claims with facts. What countries other than Russia and Iran are supporting Syria.. You made the claim so
If Syria has all this support then why would foreign military units be inside Syria. Wouldn't those countries who "support" Syria have taken steps to
shore up the porous borders to prevent those forces from entering the country?
If Syria is completely supported by Russia, then where are the Russian ground forces being deployed in Syria, aside from the small contingent to
protect their vessels in the Syrian harbor?
Where is the Russian and Iranian air support to deny the west the ability to create a no fly zone?
Why is Russia waiting, and telling the west to wait, for a conclusion to the latest UN investigation into the use of chemical weapons?
If Syria has as much support as you are trying to claim, then why is the civil war ongoing after almost 2 years?
Better yet how many advisors has Russia sent to Syria to advise the Assad regime? The only nation I know of who has openly sent support to Syria in
terms of forces is Iran. Even then there are reports that some of those Iranian forces have been acting to protect the Syrian president.
You know, because Assad has so much support that his own body guards / military members have tried to off him. Or is it because of the support of
Assad that large chunks of the Syrian military have defected / left?
Sending in Special forces to keep tabs on things is a prudent measure.. Just as Iran sees it by sending in their own forces.
