Wonder what the Syrians think about that.

Yes, interesting and largely correct.

Sullivan misses one thing.

Success for the Russians is not making Syria function like a modern civilized society, it is preventing petro energy transfers to Western Europe and maintaining the necessary operational readiness of their naval base there, nothing more.

Russia can easily achieve their goal in Syria with very little negative consequences, while the US is guaranteed to fail miserably if they engage in any way.
