BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 A.M.) – Russian paratroopers and special forces arrived in the Al-Sweida Governorate of southern Syria this week, following the U.S. attack on a pro-government convoy near the Iraqi border-crossing, a military source told Al-Masdar News last night.

The Russian military personnel will take the role of advising the Syrian government troops in southern Syria, while also helping to deter any potential response from the U.S. and Jordanian forces that have carved a niche in the Al-Sweida and Homs governorates.

According to some media activists in southern Syria, the Russian forces are planning to build a base along the Al-Sweida Governorate’s border with Jordan; however, this could not be confirmed by Al-Masdar News.

Rumors have also surfaced regarding the deployment of the 31st Brigade of the Russian special forces; they are allegedly meant to engage the enemy forces and help the government troops seize the Iraqi border-crossing.

Very good news at all.
Sometimes the Big Bear takes a little while to react, but poor of the one who manage to disturb him from his nap.

The West is addicted to Knee j**k Reactions that attempt to create reality and political talking points from their wet dreams .

Russia IS REALITY and as the West wakes from their wet dreams in a sweat and total panic from their self delusional fantasy world, they realise that Russia can and will confront Western aggression . Russia is the only nation on earth that is able to do so and can save the world from Western decadence and decay that is spreading like a cancer.

Flo, you really should consider reducing pot! 😉 First, stop sticking European nations with US foreign politics and the yankee-poodle named UK! The shit Obama admin has spread in the ME and Ukraine was tailored to fuck Russia AND EU. If you want reality, this is one! Actually, Russia is more decadent than EU which is more decadent than USA. Those who suck are ultra-conservative cuntries. USA is one of them, put Saudi-Arabia in the same sack. You should take a trip to St.Petersburg. Russian whores are surely the best in the world! Best vodka comes from the RuAF guys,… Read more »

Won’t happen! The only US interest is not to lose influence and MOREOVER armament business with GCC cuntries! They simply don’t give a f**k about who wins, actually, troubles can last forever, same thing for Ukraine, as long that Gazprom doesn’t build the Iranian pipieline through Iraq, Syria then connect it through Jordan or Israel to Cyprus once the Israel-Cyprus undersea pipeline will be connected to EU through Crete then Greece. s**t in Ukraine has the same goal and we should investigate how much Poland will pay to receive their F-16V to replace their old Soviet-era jets : 15y ago,… Read more »

I am sure we all expect the Russians to stand up to the outrageous US & UK aggression. Did I read yesterday that fokking Norwegian army decided that it too had a role to play in Syria? Can one’s brain stretch far enough to imagine what would be said if SAA decided to deploy troops in Norway?

Surely in exchange of bargained prices on F-35 which were armbinded on Norway while hey initially were into buying Gripens. https://defenseissues.net/2012/11/03/on-f-35-export-success/ F-35 will need serious rebuilding, be sure that US govt will charge this on their military help. US already nearly gave F-16 to Poland against having them participating the 2003 aerial campaign against Saddam 😉 Visibly, there was also a “credit” given to France about having helped the 2011 Libyan campaign : although decision was made not to buy, E-2 Hawkeyes were proposed at a bargain price. Maybe was this used to acquire some C-130J to compensate A400M being… Read more »
