Is that supposed to stop bullets or vampires?

The half-hearted military interventions of various foreign countries in Syria have in fact contributed to disaster. Most of the interfering countries (like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, the United States, Iran, Russia and others) all had their own strategic interests and motives. These were not necessarily coinciding with the interests of the Syrian people; certainly not if one looks at the disastrous results. Therefore, the question seems justified whether or not the so-called “Friends of Syria” in the end really turned out to be “Friends of the Syrian People”. Those who supported the opposition groups, generally claimed that they wanted a political solution, but this solution in reality was intended to be regime change, if not peacefully – which was not going to happen anyhow – then with military force. But this did not work either, because the option of direct foreign military intervention was written off in 2013.

I'm guessing the Russians are learning about IED's.

I assume #4 is a DIY grenade launcher.

#6: A Warthog would make short work of that convoy. They don't recognize Orthodox crosses, after all.

#6: A Warthog would make short work of that convoy. warthog, apache, cobra, a swarm of predators, a column of abrams (russian army is clearly inferior to american armor - two wars in iraq proved that). . .

Cool pictures. Bet the Russian holding the cross would rather be home.

Filling the gap, Syria is a Russian client state, and the only opposition being the Kurds who are under attack from the Turks as well.
Which leaves the 'coalition' supporting both sides of the conflict…………and the Russians/Syrians untroubled as they take control.
