After weeks of a 21st century version detente between Washington and Moscow over the declining state of affairs in Syria, and possibly looking at a joint situation to the ongoing civil war that has gripped the nation, it appears Russia has decided to stop cooperating and continue supplying their allies within the Assad regime.
According to two U.S. media reports: Russia has deployed at least a dozen warships to its Mediterranean Naval base in the Syrian City of Tartus and sent a large shipment of anti-ship missiles to the Assad regime, which could be used to defend against any potential sea based foreign intervention.
Both movements should cause serious concern in Washington: as they indicate a seemingly overnight about face by Moscow in regards to the Syrian civil war. While a week ago they were willing to discuss a peace-based solution to the all consuming crisis, now they are taking steps to both embolden the Assad regime and tell the world they are not giving up their presence in the Mediterranean.

Since Tulammo is the only thing in the ammo cabinets at Walmart lately, he’s supporting us against our Regime.
Good for Russia. Keep arming Assad. He is the lesser of the two evils.
Don’t forget Golden Tiger, which is pretty good 7.62
Ha ha, No “Wag the Dog” for Obama.
I think this is working out pretty well ; Russia keeps Asad propped up , and the Gulf Arabs keep the Sunni/Wahbists propped up : they all can kill each other off in great numbers , bringing Syria long time Karma to fruition . Whoever prevails , it will be a Pyrrhic victory . The IDF can then come in and mop up the remains . Israel/US should guarantee the Russians the port of Tartus , which is all they are in this fight for . Never forget , the Lord has a plan for Damascus “ The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.”
Ditto, down to the letter of what I was about to post.
