Russia sends more missiles and navy presence to the region.
Responds to US-UK-FR attack by actively supporting direct Syrian retaliation against the fleet and their air support. Primary mission being to sink or severly damage the partaking a/c carriers.
Send ground troops to Syria to support Assad's regime.
Escalate to the brink of a outright war. Neither US, UK or FR has economy to sustain yet another war, while Russia can pump in unlimited funds (in comparison to the adversaries).
Russia to work with Turks to get their support, and diplomatic assistance to form a pact with Iran.
Move Russian-Chinese peace keepers to the region to disarm rebels and terrorists.
... any of the above, and things will calm down to business as usual, and focus is more in fighting the actual terrorism.
