Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said in Damascus on Saturday that his country will not remain passive as jihadists push an offensive in Syrias neighbor Iraq.
Russia will not remain passive to the attempts by some groups to spread terrorism in the region, Ryabkov told journalists after meeting with President Bashar al-Assad.
Sunni militants, led by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) which is active in both Syria and Iraq, have seized vast territory north and west of Baghdad since launching their offensive two weeks ago.

I bet Obama will oppose any effort at Russian intervention. Obama wants the Caliphate.
What do they propose to do about it?
Page 261, paperback edition of ∅s book The Audacity of Hope.
He seems to. But, he wouldn't want to be subject to Sharia, himself!
Would Vladimir actually involve Russia militarily in the Iraq situation and do what many believe the US should be doing?
Obama has certainly given Putin the opening to take some action against ISIS.
From the reports we’ve been hearing they had better get a move on.
It’s my understanding that sharia winks at sodomy, at least at the “pitcher”. Don’t know Hissein’s preferred position.
They miss a strong man in the region that buys large quantities of their military hardware.
It’s a different kind of World Cup tournament.
Jerusalem is the final prize.
The sound of angels and demons sharpening their swords.
< reality mode >How powerful would Putin be if he could cut off everyone's oil as well as their gas?
I am sure Putin has Russia’s interests at heart.
I wish we could say that Obama has America’s interests at heart.
Putin on the Risk
I do not think the Russians take prisoners... for long.
They make em talk then kill them.
According to foreign news sources Putin has offered Maliki total support...
Russia recognize there is a rare strategic opportunity to slaughter their most determined jihadist enemies. ISIL fighters are greatly overextended on Iraq. Their rear supply bases are being harassed by Hezbollah and Syrian air attacks. Their center flank faces ferocious Kurds who are anxious to seize more territory. Their southern thrust against Baghdad has for now been stopped by the Iraqi army bolstered by enthusiastic Shi’ite militia. The Russians know that with proper leadership, coordination and logistics, the ISIL could be placed in a deadly vise.
Russia is very well aware of the implications having the “Ring of Fire” at their southern borders. Funding Shias balances out the Sunnis.
Could ISIS be the germ of Armageddon???
That the third wire copy report I saw Friday night
The Chechens have been flooding that area, and Putie hates them and the other Islam serial killers.
He can accomplish a lot of goals by helping to wipe out the ISIS serial killers and their Chechenian and other Islamic buddies flooding that area for their Jihad.
Well, I do hope Russia and Assad run them all out of Syria! Israel could handle Assad all right, but an al Qaeda Syria would be a nightmare for Israel.
I doubt Putin will lose much sleep over it.
I remember back in the 80s when diplomats were being snatched left and right in Lebanon, someone made the mistake of grabbing some Russians. The KGB kidnapped some of the kidnappers relatives and sent some body parts to them, with the promise of more to follow. The Russians were released, and nobody kidnapped any Russians again.
I guess we might learn what Putin means as it's reported that Iraq has launched some counterattacks against ISIS today. We'll see if any Russian support materializes.
But idiot Obama, by doing nothing meaningful, has sure given Russia an entre into that area through both Syria and Iraq.
The Russians have always been allied with the Sunnis
The Russians won’t wait for terrorists to take over the middle east.
Obama won’t wait for congress to pass immigration reform.
Yeah; the Russians will sell them weapons.
According to a report on Press TV,the Bagdad government has received the first batch of Russian made Sukhoi fighter planes to use them against the militants.
Sorry about the link on my previous post. This is the correct link on Press Tv :
Fatima and Medjugore are all about Russia. And Russia is all about getting ready for a nuke strike both ways.
The Russian Orthodox Church is blessing holy warriors with every graduating class from a military academy. Putin has christian religious visions and sees Russia as the next owner of the mantle of Christian Civilization.The writing is on the wall.
These are the people that survived Chernobyl and learned from it.
If Israel gets nuked we are next.
~The Russians have always been allied with the Sunnis~
You might be kidding.
The Russians will more likely watch us implode, seeing how we are plummeting at an increasing speed. They don't need to risk their cities.
They are however, very concerned about the crapastan countries to the south. Particularly around Sochi.
The nuke drills are not posturing for propaganda.
Not at all. They are prudent. We do them too.
The Russians and Chinese are NOT afraid to go nuclear on the Islamic hoard. It is also partially the reason Iran is building nuclear weapons itself (and why it is not so much of a concern anymore at this point).
A stock or store of money or valued objects, typically one that is secret or carefully guarded.
A large group of people.
