    ABC news has reported that Russian troops have entered Syria for the purpose of showing support for Assad.

    Russian Anti-Terror Troops Arrive in Syria - ABC News

    They specify anti terror troops in the headline.

    from the story


    So I wonder if Obummer has the nads to bomb there with Russian troops present.

    Is this an attempt to foist Assad as the new Caliph? Or merely a way of keeping an arms purchaser in the market?

    Guess the Russians got tired of the US rolling every Arab country. Wonder if the Chinese will move troops into Iran.
