Yeah. Yes they are, no doubt in my mind. The Ruskie position is really quite simple. 20% of their foreign arms sales go to Syria and Basher owes them big money. Ivan is , I’m sure , sick of getting stuck with the tab ala Saddam and Qdaffy. And then there is the Russian naval base in Syria. It’s now their warm water port, since losing Ukraine, and they’d sure like to keep it. Any big deals must guarantee security of the base or Ivan just ain’t gonna like it. Beyond that the Russians do not have a soft spot for muzzies and would probably go along with flattening every hi diddle diddle minarat in Syria. And I expect they’d loan us the rope to string up the chinless pencil neck geek Basher.

Assad is being carried by the Russians, Qaddafi, not so much, the Russians didn't want his gold disappearing down Obama's IMF buddies' black hole, which is exactly what it did. It is the last time.

And then there is the Russian naval base in Syria. It’s now their warm water port, since losing Ukraine, and they’d sure like to keep it.

Ukraine's extension of Russian base's lease may challenge U.S. goals in region

Russia’s Black Sea fleet in Sevastopol beyond 2017 Read all of this one.

Russia likely wants to keep it's Syrian base, but isn't scaling major operations there yet. Sevastopol will remain at least until 2042 and Russia says it will never leave there.

Beyond that the Russians do not have a soft spot for muzzies and would probably go along with flattening every hi diddle diddle minarat in Syria.

True, but they will not screw Assad because they actually want stability, and everyone else in Syria is worse than him.
