  1. Does Any one know why Russia is in Syria, in the first place?

    Is the whole Russian nation just being mercenaries, for hire, in this?

    or what?

    Because surely Assad can't afford to hire Russia, itself, for so long?

  2. It sure seems like Russia (Putin) wants a world war. For what, that's not apparent. Could be he just wants a world war. For land? Could be. But it's about more than that.

    I seriously doubt he's a friend to Israel.
