    LOL, you haven't a clue.



    "Russia’s completion this month of an integrated air defense system in Syria has made an Obama administration decision to strike Syrian government installations from the air even less likely than it has been for years, and has created a substantial obstacle to the Syrian safe zones both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have advocated.

    Deployment of mobile and interchangeable S-400 and S-300 missile batteries, along with other short-range systems, now gives Russia the ability to shoot down planes and cruise missiles over at least 250 miles in all directions from western Syria, covering virtually all of that country as well as significant portions of Turkey, Israel, Jordan and the eastern Mediterranean."

    Russia summons Israeli ambassador to explain air raids in Syria
    Moscow raises concerns over Israel’s exchange of fire with Syrian regime forces as second incident kills pro-Assad fighter
    what has been fast emerging in recent months is that Israel may have badly misjudged the potential outcome of the Syrian war.

    It had anticipated a conflict that would undermine the Assad regime, seriously wound Hezbollah and push back Iran’s attempts to expand its influence. But since Moscow’s intervention, Assad’s forces and Hezbollah have clawed back territory from rebel groups and Islamic State, creating conditions more conducive for Iran to supply weapons to the Lebanese militants.

    Brig Gen Nitzan Nuriel, a former director of counter-terrorism in the Israeli prime minister’s bureau, said conflict with Hezbollah was inevitable as the group sought ever more advanced anti-aircraft missiles, heavy rockets and tactical weapons, but he believed Assad had seriously misread the situation.

    “Assad has not read the map correctly,” he said. “He believes it is only a question of weeks or months before he can declare a full victory and is looking to the next stage. I believe he is mistaken and that clashes in Syria will stay with us for the next three to six years.”

    Discussing Russia’s role in Syria, he added more controversially: “Russia got the messages it needs to receive from Israel.” That was, he said: “Israel will not allow anyone, including Russia to get in the way of implementing our military mission.”

    Irrelevant. These two anti missiles systems are on Russian military property and operated by Russians, not by Assad's forces, so they will have no relevance to Israel's operations against the transfer of advanced weapons to Hezbollah. Had Russia turned them over to the Assad regime, they would have already been destroyed since they represent a threat to civilian air traffic in Israel.

    Russia will not fire on Israeli planes because a conflict with Israel would jeopardize Russia's whole operation in Syria. Netanyahu and Putin have discussed this many times and each will respect the other nation's needs.

    In other words, Israel produces and delivers a superior product.

    Russia will not fight with Israel because Russia, and everybody else, needs Israel's ever coming next invention.

    Endless wars and military occupation produces endless national deficits.
