Sheesh, this could get expensive..!
Good thing we don’t have $21 TRILLION in debt, right..?
And that we’re all bullet-proof.
The incentives for Moscow and Damascus to win the war quickly have been increased.
Cool.. more targets!
Pipeline conspiracies are for suckers. Congrats!
Yeah, just make us out a LIST, kay..?
Sounds expensive for Russia, let them get embroiled in Syria.
You spam the same crap on every Syria thread - we know your opinion.
Going to get sporty over there...
If I were Russian, and my primary concerns were a warm-water port on the Med and control over pipelines, I’d set up Assad and send in the land arms to secure the country. And, I’d treat the US CBW bombing as an annoyance and a necessary concession to what’s left of Western Christian values.
After Syria was a secure client, with my Med port and my pipeline control, I’d relax.
Is my view of the Russian rationale reasonable?
This didn’t just happen....planned and scheduled mo ths ago....Russians aren’t capable of responding that fast. Relax folks. Russia is trying desperately to save face.
At some point, you'd think Assad would say your Russian crap hasn't worked as advertised for over 50 years...
Russia can haul all the hardware they want into Syria...As long as there are no more chemical weapons attacks, that’s fine...
“And that were all bullet-proof.”
Thank goodness we ‘won’ the Cold War, or all of those modernized Russian weapons could actually be a threat to us. But they can’t be, since we ‘won’ the Cold War and spend more money on our military (much of it to retrofit subs for LGBTs).
- Rationale of Warmongers on this site -
It’s getting expensive for Russia - not us. And Russia has not crap for an economy. Pull those pearls out of your butt.
They aren’t gonna do crap to us.
Exactly - but we have all the usual jackasses trolling again.
