    Considering Russian history in squashing Muslim countries from Ottoman Empire to Afghanistan, exactly why does this not gets across so well to Syrians and Assad is really beyond me!

    The world is aligning with superpowers. Sunni Muslims with the West, Shiite's with Russia. South Korea with the West, North with Russia. South Vietnam with the West, North with Russia, etc. Except that this last one did not remain as such till the end.

To that end, I feel Putin has become emboldened to such an extent that he will push the boundaries to the max. Putin probably will re-supply the Syrian regime, would you be surprised?

    No, I won't be surprised, and Putin is going to have the legitimacy of the UN's declaration behind him, so he's not the belligerent actor.
