Russia sends Syria advanced missile systems as Assad defiantly says "I am here to stay"

Iran and Syria have common goals in getting as many advanced missiles into Hezbollah's hands as possible knowing they will be used against U.S. and Israeli interests. With Russia openly admtting that they are sending Syria advanced muissiles, missiles systems, and ship destroyers, they have made those shipments fair game in the war escalation game.
After all Russia had frozen these shipments in 2010 so their goal to see Israel and US hegremony ended no matter what it takes obvious.
Russia 'sends modern arms to Syria': 'Ship-killers' Russia is one of Syria's few remaining allies and its major arms suppliers. Over the years, in contracts worth billions of dollars, it has sold thousands of tanks, artillery units, aircraft, helicopters and defence systems to Damascus.
  According to the New York Times report, a recent Russian shipment to Syria included an advanced form of the Yakhont, a 6.7m-long (22ft) missile with a range of 290km (180 miles) and carrying either a high-explosive or armour-piercing warhead. Another US newspaper, the Wall Street Journal, reports that Moscow has deployed at least a dozen warships to patrol waters near the Russian naval base in the Syrian city of Tartus. 

*Bashar al-Assad issues defiant message: 'I'm here to stay': On both sides of the war, faith in the international community to bring about a solution has been evaporating rapidly. And in the opposition-held north of the country, there was growing frustration on Saturday at what is perceived as a disconnect between faltering global diplomacy and searing on-the-ground reality. 

"This is a fight to the death for the Sunnis," said Abu Hamza, a commander of a Free Syrian Army-linked brigade in Idlib province. "The regime has fired at least 200 ballistic missiles into the north against civilian areas. And the world wonders why we attack their villages? They are trying to eradicate us. We must get to them first." Sectarianism, for so long a subcurrent in the Syrian conflict, is now a driving force for substantial elements on both the regime and opposition sides.

Russia's bullshit excuse that they are not arming Syria to fight the rebels, all they are doing is honoring a 2007 agreement to keep Syria resupplied. If all things were equal and they are not I would say it is wrong to interfere in any manner on either side. We are feeding this middle east wide proxy war and have been for years. The ensuing nightmare is on all our heads for feeding this for selfish gain.
Moscow: Settlement of Crisis in Syria Hindered by all of us that are Supporting Conflict

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov dismissed as baseless the accusations against Russia and China as derailing the settlement of the crisis in Syria. In a statement released on Wednesday, Morgulov said that "Our partners in the region and in the west realize that these accusations are baseless."

That would be laughable if Russia wasn't personally responsible for tens of thousands of civilian deaths. They have delivered hundreds of thousands of tons of arms and munitions to Assad and have declared they will not stop.

meanwhile it is okay for the US and western allies.

From the beginning of the chaos in Syria we have been saying that Iran more specifically the IRG (Iran Revolutionary Guard) was in Syria helping if not leading the way in trying to quell the uprising along with Hezbollah.
You know Assad's only other regional friends Iran, Hezbollah and all Islamist Shiite,are  dictating that this slaughter is a necessity though Syria knows how to brutalize its people all to well. Iran will not allow a Democracy at her doorstep further isolating her.
'Iran building militias in Syria in case Assad falls': The Post quoted a senior Obama administration official as saying that Iran was backing as many as 50,000 militiamen. “The immediate intention seems to be to support the Syrian regime. But it’s important for Iran to have a force in Syria that is reliable and can be counted on,” the official stated.
Now that we know how involved Russia, Iran and Hezbollah are in the slaughtering that is going on around the country that is beginning to look like the beginning of their fight not nearing the end.You have to be very concerned about what is happening in Syria especially.

Russia, China, and Iran are not going to allow Syria to fall to Democracy. What we saw after the voter fraud in Iran was mild compared to what the IRG will do if this movement spreads to Iran. I really wish Bashar would step down but Iran is the elephant in the room any way you look at it. The total middle east breakdown we have written about numerous times is well under way. We can only hope we keep it from erupting into WW3.

By attacking and defeating Iraq we freed Iran up to pursue her version of new middle East order by interfering wherever she could while Bush was doing the same thing with his Middle East Democratization program. I think you can see how successful Bush and Cheney were with chaos creating Middle East Democracy program but you are barely seeing the results they created in Iran.

The goal absolutely is to be the country who decides which direction the new Middle East (dis)order will take. Bush started it by attacking Iraq to get into the middle east to destabilize it and start the new middle east order the idiot said God told him to do now it will be up to Iran and Saudi Arabia at least up front fight it out whether this goes the Iranian Shiite way or the Saudi Arabian Sunni way and do not forget Israel!

*The total middle east breakdown Sunni against Shiite is well under way. Iraq can't afford to help Iran as Iraq is busy blowing itself. I have changed my thought on this and think this developing middle east sectarian war could be a good thing if the United States, Russia, and China can remain on the side lines but it doesn't look like it, so?.
* The other side is arming the rebels, that is the problem?This is going to be Sunni against shiite hell spread throughout the middle east compliments of Iran, United States, Israel, Russia,...

This is far more complicated. Here's the latest intel I've received:
80,000 dead 1.4 million refugees and 4 million displaced. The situation in those refugee camps is getting desperate with a lack of food and a growing resentment for having that many folks in a country.

Russia proposed peace talks but that would be somewhat conditional and not agreeable to the Syrian Coalition (representing the rebels who by the way don't represent just one group). In a recent video I saw what they said was their commander a well respected leader said to be in charge of 10,000 fighters. At the first attempted meeting for peace talks the rebels were told to lay down their arms while at the very same time Assad was targeting them. They refused to give up arms. The coalition representing them resigned so now we have different leadership but again I believe the backing isn't there.
