BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:05 P.M.) – The Russian government has stepped up their military support to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) recently, sending another large cargo ship to the Port of Tartous.

According to Yoruk Isik of the Bosphorous Observer,  the Russian flag ship RoRo Sparta II was seen crossing the Bosphorous Strait en route for Syria’s Port of Tartous.

The ship was reportedly carrying more military supplies for the Syrian Arab Army as they prepare for new operations around Syria.

This proves to me you can always trust and depend on Russians. Even their help arrives slow (most of the time)…

Like Gaddafi or Saddam could trust them? Russians are only protecting their own interests, just like everybody! If they let the pipeline to be built, US will have enough lever to have Ukraine and Poland cutting the Russian pipelines to the EU… Actually, Poles wanted to do this and it was answered by clear threats from Brussels. Mark my words, Russians would even prefer doing ground level nuke explosions or widely spread nuclear wastes just to avoid this pipeline to be built : the gas export to the EU is their main export, Russian economy can’t do without. In 2015,… Read more »

First, Gaddafi has never asked for help from Russia! Second, Saddam asked for help in the very end when was too late. In addition, Putin became president during 2000. Russia wasn’t ready to stand against US at that time. Third, Syrian war is NOT about that stupid pipe you repeat over and over. Look at the map – the pipe could easily go around Syria!!!

Mine is not helping terrorists, we’re just sitting between 2 chairs, having to look like being on US side as not looking so will cause problems but in the end, we’re doing nothing to help, especially as the Syrian project is very toxic for EU interests.
I think the English expression is “run with the hare and hunt with the hounds” (?).
Sorry, we’re not the UK…

Why does France with all her history now wish to pretend to take the US side by attacking Syria for what was a clear False Flag ?

The US is far too vulgar for the French anyway 🙂

The Kremlin said Western military action against Syria won’t go unanswered. I guess we’re just beginning to see what they actually meant by that statement.

Weapons come in Syria, people leave Syria, that is a disaster.
