This is a ridiculous move when a possible deal is on the table. Putin better watch all that strutting cause at the end of the day Russia Navy and
military might as a whole is still lacking from the fall of the Soviet Union. Everyone needs to calm down and stop acting big before someone gets
their feelings hurt and ends up sinking a half dozen ships. Then Russia will really have a problem.
Yeh man, the Russians are no match for the USA.
USA! USA! USA!
Yeh? Dream on.
Here's a clue.
Georgia was/is an American ally.
America armed and trained it's military.
Georgia decided to provoke Russia, thinking America would protect it.
Russian tanks rolled across the border.
America stayed quiet and did nothing.
And guess what? It's because it does not want and can not afford a full blown conflict with Russia. Neither can Russia afford or want one with
And you know what else?
If Russia decides to intervene against the rebels, all it will take will be a phone call to Assad to invite Russia in, and Russia will go in there and
eliminate the rebels/terrorists, and that will be the end of that.
And when Russia is done, they will have a permanent and even bigger military presence in Syria, the Middle East and the Eastern Mediterranean.
In fact I'm surprised it hasn't happened already.
For Russia not to have taken an even bigger role then it has already, but rather a gradual build up of involvement, then maybe the Russian's have
something else up their sleeve.
It certainly is interesting.
The Russian's do not want to lose their only base in the Eastern Med. The fact they are going to build up their naval presence there proves this.
So what is going on behind the scenes......who knows.
