    The russian military has proven to be quite adaptable. From WW2 up to Syria. Compare how badly they did in Afghanistan and Chechnya 1 vs Chechnya 2 and now Syria. Look how quickly they destroyed Georgia, how quickly they took Crimea. It's like comparing 1940-1942 Soviet Red Army to 1945 Soviet Red army.

    I'm not saying they are as good as NATO troops but they are getting much better at modern warfare.

    The most radical were relased by assad 3-4 months into the rebellion for his own designs

    Even today 2 of the 3 big loose blocs are pro or unopposed to a democracy (anhar and fsa) .....literaly 0 pro democracy forces on assads side!
    Half of whom are now foriegn fanatic shia militas now too.
    Among rebels by contrast u had places like daryaa....cut off from.any radicals from rebllions start bybsiege and held elections every 6 months..no wonder assad commited his elite rep guard to try and break such a small enclave

    Pretend all you want grimballer but only sa was ranked higher than pre war syria for levels of opression and brutaltiy by most human rights groups

    That's your fake neocon narrative.

    Was Russia invading Montenegro before they joined NATO?

    It's a political move.

    For USA means even more countries under their control n for those smaller nations it means they don't have to worry about military sending (most don't meet their share).

    It's a win/win, however for Russia it's a bad deal since NATO at its inception was anti soviet (now anti Russian) n they were told NATO won't expand further east (another lie by Americans n their vassal states)

    But we've seen how big majority is controlled by 6 main ones. N last year elections proved how bias n untrustworthy they truly are. They clearly have an agent n try to push it n promote it.

    Rt in English does a good job of exposing bias of western media.

    Nobody is saying russian media is flawless, but you seem to pretend that westerners media is

    Funny how there's no urgency to have a regime change in sa...

    You would think that would be the 1st place these "freedom promoting" neocons would target.

    Also if by "wanting democracy" you mean wanting an Islamic republic where Sunni majority will oppress other minorities than sure rebels are all about that democracy.

    The fact that most minorities support Assad over those rebels should tell you all you need to know.

    Assad is no saint, but much better option than these "democratic" rebels

    If there was an uprising in sa id be pro it ....so strawman killed ivan !

    Again 2 outta the 3 main groupings have openly declared they are pro democracy and pro minority rights

    As for minoritie communities support for assad most are actualy neutral(kurd druze) or at best slight in favour(christian) and some firmly anti assad(turkmen......the ones russia tried to exterminate ) ...bear in mind part of any communities decision is that the consequences for rebellion is total war waged against civillians

    Assad is pure evil and at this stage any attempt to keep him in power relies on massive amounts of fanatic foriegn militas who are equally dangerous to minorites as the worst elements of nursra.

    What? Who did Russia attack exactly?

    If anything it was USA/NATO flexing its muscle n attacked non member state in the 90s.

    Those countries quickly realized it's better to be part of NATO than their target

    The irony of that statement since the US sides with Israel all the time while the rest of the world doesn't. The only exception was the abstention by Obama towards the end of his presidency.

    N by free you of course mean promote a certain pro liberal/pro western narrative.

    You're naive to think western journalist have freedom to report whatever they want. They have protocols to follow.

    Just look at CNN/MSNBC vs Fox News. One is more liberal, while the other is more conservative. You seriously think pro liberal journalist will last long in Fox News? What about conservative journalist in CNN/MSNBC?

    Now what those 2 have in common is they're both pro western (in their own way) n anti Russian. So you seriously think pro Russian journalist would last at either network?

    So once again these media networks don't report the news, they interpret the news for viewers n shape their believes.

    Says the strawman king himself...

    Is john McCain going to sa to meet with rebels who want to topple the regime? Is he going on tv n telling everybody how brutal n oppressive the Saudi dictatorship is n how king salman has to be removed? Are those rebels being armed by USA?

    N honestly who the hell cares what knife wielding, "Allah Akbar" screaming radicals think or say? Any rational person knows they can't be trusted.

    You can pretend all you want that Assad is "evil" n Shia militia is "as bad" as your Sunni radicals. That's simply not true n many minorities siding with Assad over "democracy loving" rebels is proof of that

    no its a real come back, cause youre full of shit.

    but let me get this right...

    so youre gonna overlook n ignore all the atrocities n human right violations committed by sa n you gonna continue to arm them n have them as close allies, but the moment theres a rebellion or uprising against the saudi regime you gonna do 180 n support the rebels? i get scumbags like you (n other neocons) have no honor n would double cross your own family member for the right price. i doubt you would turn your back on that sweet saudi oil money though.

    great job generalizing the entire region cletus!

    n no they dont all do that. just the crazy fanatical ones you support.

    nope. it was exterminating isis n other radical groups wrecking havoc on syria. you know, the same guys you were arming n helping gain territory.
