Putin taking a stand doesn't surprise me...
what would surprise me now is if the U.S actually went ahead with the attack and if they do what will the repercussions be..?
so what is the general consensus here on ATS....
is this conflict going to kick off in a big way or will it fizzle out like all the N korea tension? Not that there are similiratities between the two regions, Im just using that as an example.

I also wonder how many people from Syria will be evacuated. There are two landing ships waiting orders, and officials have repeatedly say the orders of evacuation will include transport of people by sea to Cyprus, and then by air to Russia. There are some 100, 000 people Russian citizens, including the children of mixed families. If all those people are going to be transported it will be a massive operation. They cannot just be left to their fate if worse scenarios are envisioned. Such as exchange of chemical and nuclear strikes with Israel. That is quite possible if Assad regime finds it loses ground and goes Gadafi's end.

Senator Lindsey Graham:
He says if there is no U.S. response, Iran will not believe America’s resolve to block Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Graham also says those nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists could result in a bomb coming to Charleston Harbor.
He says he’s working to convince South Carolinians weary of war that the situations in Syria and Iran are linked. Graham says Syria could destabilize the entire Middle East.

follow this reasons :
1. USA debt is worse than Greece one .
2. Dolar is losing status of world reserve currency. China agreed with Iran, Japan, russia, latin america trades without Dolar. India agreed with Iran with gold.
3. Only way to control China is control their resources...this is reason for Libya, Iraq and last piece is Iran...but Iran doors is Syria.
Only way for USA to stay a global power is to control all resources of Middle East and this is reason way Obama hurry up for ww3. War should mask USA bancrupcy and through war victory they try make new world order...with new currency and full control of oil.
