This might be obvious to many, but I get so many questions about why Russia is not doing more to counter the USA in Africa, Latin America or Asia that I feel that it is, alas, still important to remind everybody of a basic principle of international law and common sense: At least for the short to middle term.
As for the Russians, this is simply and plainly not their business. And think about the Iranians who since the Islamic Revolution of have been in the crosshairs of both the USA and Israel and who never gave either one of them the pretext to strike.
There are also simply factual issues to consider: In fact, both Israel and CENTCOM simply have such a numbers advantage over the relatively small Russian contingent that they both could over-run the Russian defenses, even if they would take losses in the process.
Where is the Organization of Islamic Cooperation?! When you are much more powerful than your opponent you can be stupid and reply on brute, dumb force.
Now let me address a few typical questions: The one exception to this rule is Kim Jong-un who has chosen a policy of hyperinflated threats which, while possibly effective he seems to have outwitted Trump, at least so far is also very dangerous and one which none of the Resistance countries want to have any part in.
But none of that means that Russia is now responsible for the protection of the sovereignty of the Syrian airspace or territory. Yet they chose not to, and that is the wise and correct approach.
Make no mistake — the Israeli and US! So the truth of the matter is simple: So yes, the Russian probably could stop one or a few Israeli attacks, but if the Israelis decided to engage in a sustained air campaign against targets in Syria there is nothing the Russians could do short of going to war with Israel.
That last one is exceedingly rare and the use of force mostly results in one of the other outcomes. Following this publication I received an email from a reader asking me the following question: Furthermore, consider the number of US cruise missiles which never made it to the Syrian air base Trump wanted to bomb: I think that it would be pretty safe to say that the Israelis make sure to keep a minimal safe distance between themselves and the Russians, if only to avoid any misunderstanding.
Their task is to incapacitate that monkey without having it pull the pin. For all the personal credibility of Putin with the Russian people, even he could not get away with trying to militarily intervene, nevemind police the whole planet, unless truly vital Russian interests were threatened Crimea was such a very rare case.
The same goes for the Hezbollah leadership, by the way. First, we need to look at some critical assumption implied by this question. Now if you look at where the Russian air defenses are, you will see that they are all concentrated around Khmeimim and Tartus. In the case of the Israeli strikes on Syria, the primary responsibility to respond in some manner would fall either on the target of the strikes usually Hezbollah or on the nation whose sovereignty was violated Syria.
Putin is the President of Russia and he is first and foremost accountable to the Russian people to whom he has to explain every Russian casualty and even every risk he takes. First, they are re-vamping the aging Syrian air defenses not only with software updates, but also with newer hardware.
What this means is that while these three entities do have some common objectives, they are also independent and they all have some objectives not shared by others. I would appreciate your feedback on this matter.
How many countries in the Middle-East have recognized South Ossetia or Abkhazia and compare that with the Kosovo case! And, of course, it is in the Russian national interest to show that, unlike the USA, Russia stands by her allies. I think that the list of options is fairly obvious here.
So here again a very basic strategic principle fully applies:Download-Theses Mercredi 10 juin Informationclearinghouse recently posted an article by Darius Shahtahmasebi entitled “Israel Keeps Bombing Syria and Nobody Is Doing Anything About It”.
