    Heya Ttwtt. Yeah.....and in the meantime Putin is going to sell some S300 Modified to Iran while offering to help build them a second reactor. Sure hope he isn't dealing from the a trick deck. Announced Right away as the Russians work on that Chem issue with Assad.

    You have to be street wise with dealing with Putin. He's a street thug (X-KGB) and like most thugs they want respect they haven't earned. When dealing with Putin you have to have perpetual vision or Putin will cold cock you when your not expecting it.

    Where as Obama was given the benefit of doubt in the beginning and shown the respect he never earned and soon it was obvious, Obama wasn't ready for the major leagues.

    Sasha?

    At least Obama didn't name his daughters after animals you find in the forest.

    Good evening, ttwtt.

    Unless Syria has the same kind of MSM that we have, and is serving as a propaganda arm of the regime, it is reported that Assad has the approval of 70% of the Syrian people. So it would appear that the only people who don't like Assad are people outside Syria. And he did try to aid the village of Christian believers who were being slaughtered by the rebels. Is any of this true?

    Obama is Putin's puppet. Obama has been down grated by Moody and now he is down graded as the US supper power to substandard status in the world. Russia and Iran and the rest of the museum world is now the supper power in the word and we suck it up. All due to Obama and his mission to down grade the US any way he can.

    These S-300 SAM's aren't good news for Israel. These upgraded S-300's air defense missiles will be able to shoot down aircraft over Israel.

    What's also significant about these missiles, they are equal to our Patriot SAM's and can shoot down Tomahawk cruise missiles.

    Have to do a little searching to find out what kind of land launch anti ship missiles that Syria has recently received.

    I have no clue. There are always three sides of any story, the pro, the con and the truth.

    My old man loved them and respected them more than any fighters in this World.

    I believe he probably has the support of the majority of the people. American elites in the media or otherwise are always blinded by some idealistic notion of democracy. Syria has always been a place that required an iron fist and there really is nothing different about the current Assad from the previous one except that the US no longer likes that they have a secular autocracy. Syria often has been blamed for things that originated in Iran by my measure at least.
