    It's not as though taking on Russia (and then possibly Iran and China at the same time) would be anything like taking on Saddam Hussein or Gaddafi!

    Good morning, APACHERAT.

    WHY? To gauge how well they're doing while working two or three part time jobs just to make ends meet?

    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.

    Heya Apache. Yeah I know.....plus they set up and take down in less then 5 mins.

    Israel will now need to worry if the Russians give Iran those type of weapons. Thing is Putin did this while still playing the Syrian slant.

    Course the other concern here for Israel is Iran being able to Sabre Rattle over the ability.

    Iran had best think very serious like.....if they even send one Cruise Missile Israel's way. As their destruction will be assured then.

    Heya Fisher .....well there is one difference. Assad is more popular with the youth and younger people than his father was.

    Why do I say that? Simple actually. There's no way the UN or anyone else can secure those chemical weapons in the middle of an active war zone. Even if it wasn't a war zone (with people shooting whatever moved and dropping artillery and mortar shells everywhere) it would take months to identify and inventory the weapons, and YEARS to stabilize, transport and dispose of them.

    In other words, this proposal is a made for TV movie, and not reality. It gives Obama the out from the corner he backed himself into ("damn, you mean they crossed the Red Line? Uh, I mean... what Red Line?) and it gives Russia the ability to give Assad time to regroup and more than likely survive.

    And that's only if they can get the opposition forces to agree. Last I heard, no one had asked them what they thought about all this. My guess is, they don't care what Obama says at this point, since they can't rely on him telling the truth or following through with what he does say, and they damn sure don't care what Putin, or Iran, or anyone else says either.

    They didn't get into this fight over chemical weapons. They protested against Assad during the Arab Spring, Assad attacked them, and they fought back.

    None of that has changed.
    Heya Beaudreax. Putin played it well. As he knew it would take troops on the ground, as well as that the West would not trust Russia to go in and stockpile and destroy. Which means NATO troops on the ground and in that War Zone with Rebels/ Terrorists. Getting to see first hand just what they are doing. While having to defend themselves. Be a good year if not more.

    Realistically, except for syria's principled refusal to acknowledge Israel getting in the way, it is probably the only Arab country in the region that had pro-west possibilities because of its government's secular nature. Law and order has traditionally been the only real focus of the government.

    Re: Israel and Syria I heard one annalist say that they know who they are dealing with with Assad in power. With the radical Islamist rebels they don't know what to expect if they were to take political control of Syria.

    But one scenario is, if and or when Israel attacks Iran's nuclear facilities and Assad is still in power, Iran's retaliation against Israel will be launched from Syria.

    As we have witnessed over the past few years, Obama has supported overthrowing American allies and supporting Islamist radicals which include the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. As the Washington Times reported the other day that the CIA has confirmed that Al Qaeda has expanded under the Obama administration and that Al Qaeda terrorist attacks have increased under the Obama administration. But Obama lied to the American people to get reelected by proclaiming that it was all about a Youtube video and that Al Qaeda was on the run and being decimated when the truth was it's a complete opposite.

    Where ever Obama has inserted his failed foreign policies we see the results like in Egypt, Libya, etc.
