Five landing ships? That's it? That isn't going to deter anyone. I think it's far more likely that the ships are there to protect Russian citizens, nothing more.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Am glad we have nations like Russia and China maintaining balance in world affairs..

Edited to add: Do we really want one nation with all the power to force other nations to live their way and do what they say?

Excellent, a multipolar world will definitely free us of political hegemony.

Because the situation in Syria so closely resembles that in Palestine, right?  Cry for the perpetrator all you care to but leave me out of your pity party.
If their systems appeal to you that much then why not immigrate?  I'm sure they'd love to have someone who supports their ideals.

Just telling you what is happening.

Moving over there? Their system?

Maybe you didn't understand the concept is wanting a better globe where no one system is "better". We should all have the same, the best we can do.

Having a better system here usually is the result of economic disparity and we should aim for egalitarianism instead.

Well on Russia Today they said the ships were to evacuate non military civilians and aid. Not warships but Cargo ships. Press TV have blamed Israel for everything

They are really there to give aid to Syria by repleneshing ammo and other provisions.

Russia has a greater economy and is part of the emerging BRIC nations.

What proof do you have that Russia is smarter?

Im happy to see Russia not bowing to NATO Imperialism. Has anyone considered the WMD's that Saddam hid in Syria might now be moved to Russia.

There is a pre-planned naval exercise taking place in Mediteranian. There are not five landing ships, only one, to my knowledge. Certainly these ships are ready to evacuate Russian citizens, though if this was any aggresive fleet, then Admiral Kuznetsov (carrier) would also be there, but it is not, to my knowledge.

Except there never were any WMD's that Saddam had. All he had were weak bio-weapons we helped him produce when he was our ally during the Iran-Iraq War. We keep the good stuff for ourselves, just in case we need it, and so no one can use it against us. What Saddam had was mustard gas I think, WW1 tech, please...

I am repping you for Russia.

No. Proletariat means working class in Roman and Marxist use. Plebian is middle classes while equites and senators were aristocracy

He also had equipment and scientist working on these projects. Which has never been found. Syria has a very similiar program and stockpile to what you describe. Im sorry but Mustard gas use on a civilain poulace is not a weak agent. And he also had more deadly chemicals which were used against the Kurds. These stockpiles DID dissapear.

There were no WMDs.

Are people still perpetuating that hoax?

Aha, and 2,000 - 5,000 Kurds dropped dead on their own. Or maybe they died en masse to spite Saddam and ruin his reputation. Maybe Saddam was only spraying mosquitoes, Weapons of Mosquito Destruction...
