Russia building anti-access bubble over Syria

The criminal Americans had better get the fuck out of there because the Sukhois mean business and won’t hesitate to shoot their Chinese-made junk out of the skies.

In about 1-2 months when Russia has complete dominance over Syrian skies they’ll be looking at securing Syria’s borders so don’t be surprised if the implement no-fly zones inside Turkish and Jordanian territories.

What we’re seeing are permanent bases and the beginning of total change in the ME.

Of course not! Any anti-Assad forces are fair game to the Russians. I suspect that the FSA was the first target.


I never thought that this would happen, but I fully agree with you (even if the wider conclusions I draw are probably diametrically opposite to yours).

I would have expected them to have made one symbolic attack on Daesh, though, before carrying out their main aim (which is attacking all of the other groups opposed to Assad).

If you look at the latest maps you’ll find that Al Nusra and the FSA are closest and more menacing to Assad than ISIS. I also believe they are better fighters than ISIS due to more experience and clearer goals.

so the west has not been able to bomb them to extinction. the russians have joined in. what if their bombing is also as ineffective. who else is left to join the killing spree of innocent civilians.

I’ve just watched HD drone footage of the airstrikes. So far they’re mostly shrapnel-cluster bombings that seem to raise an entire square kilometer with each missile!

Here's confirmation...

The Free Syrian Army (FSA) claims Russian warplanes attacked them in the countryside of the Hama Province, launching a number of missiles at their “headquarters” in the area, and wounding eight fighters. They insist that there is no ISIS presence anywhere around the targeted area.
