Posted on 09/07/2013 6:34:22 PM PDT by Innovative
President Vladimir Putin gave warning that Russia would stand with Syria if America launches military strikes against the country.
Ending the summit, Mr Putin said that world opinion was firmly against US-led intervention, adding that Russia would take Syria's side. "Will we help Syria? We will," he said. "We are already helping, we send arms."

Just think what will happen WHEN (NOT IF) Russia and Iran get involved, with Iran and Syria attacking Israel directly...
When someone confirms sort of dismissively like that, well, it’s not just politics.
I BELIEVE HIM 101% —they’re serious.
Are we starting a war with Russia — we avoided war during communism, now we go to war to help a bunch of Islamic terrorists?! — see this other article:
Putin warns Russia could come to Syria’s aid over US strike
“Putin escalated concerns about the fallout from any strike when he indicated in an interview published Wednesday that his country could send Syria and its neighbors in the region the components of a missile shield if the U.S. attacks.
U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testified this week that the Russians might even replace any military assets the U.S. destroys in a strike.
The warnings raise the possibility of a supposedly “limited” strike on Syria turning into a proxy tit-for-tat between Russia and the U.S. “
Putin understands the real threat of radical Islamist terrorists — he is fighting them in Chechnia.
Which reminds me that Putin warned us several times about the Boston terrorist brothers and Obama did nothing.
Obama-the Undocumented First Moslem by Fraud and
Pelosi’s perjury DOES NOT CARE.
HE and his family are protected.
Americans are “his” to have killed by his al Qaeda,
whenever AND whereever the First Moslem deems,
because unfortunately they did not ‘wake up’ in time.
Putin Vows Continued Aid to Assad.

“The Russian president also warned about the economic implications of further destabilization in the Middle East. “We know: When there are clashes or cataclysms, suddenly the price on energy commodities rises,” Mr. Putin said. “And what does that mean? That means that these prices hamper world economic growth.” “

Just like Benghazi
I wonder,... Iran hates Israel insanely, and Syria does somewhat. Russia has excellent relations with Israel, and has no interest in screwing that up.
If Russia could get Syria and Iran to leave Israel alone it would throw a huge monkey wrench into Zer0's strategy.
Probably impossible, but Egypt has moved to increase the peace with Israel since the Military took over...
It’s time for that “monkey with a hand grenade” picture.
“Probably impossible, but Egypt has moved to increase the peace with Israel since the Military took over...”
But don’t forget that Obama supported and is still supporting the Muslim Brotherhood to be in charge of Egypt...
Obama did nothing? He certainly welcomed the news.

“Its time for that monkey with a hand grenade picture”
Didn’t find a picture, but I found this article:
Russian Deputy Premier Calls West Monkey With Hand Grenade
A firebrand Russian nationalist-turned-senior official said Tuesday that the West was acting in the Islamic world like a monkey with a hand grenade.
That's my point.
The Egyptian Military has known for a long time that peace with Israel is good (and profitable) for them and Egypt as a whole.
By kicking out the Muslim Brotherhood and increasing cooperation with Israeli security along Gaza, Sinai and the Med they show Israel they're safe from Egyptians, but not from Obama's MB.
If Egypt can do it so obviously, maybe Russia can get Iran and Syria to look and think tactically.
Putin’s not gonna blink on this one.
Obama has accomplished what he set out to accomplish. Not one country fears us anymore. I would imagine Israel is getting a lot of “bang” ready.
Russia and the US - Unite to Fight the Common Enemy
My fear is enough people in congress will say “How dare Russia tell us what to do!” then side with Obama in starting WWIII.
