Report: Russian Troops Enter Syria to Assist Assad Regime

Russian Anti-Terror Troops Arrive in Syria (ABC News)

ABC is reporting that Russian troops have entered Syria to assist the Assad regime with the anti-government protests.
ABC News reported:

A Russian military unit has arrived in Syria, according to Russian news reports, a development that a United Nations Security Council source told ABC News was “a bomb” certain to have serious repercussions.

Russia, one of President Bashar al-Assad’s strongest allies despite international condemnation of the government’s violent crackdown on the country’s uprising, has repeatedly blocked the United Nations Security Council’s attempts to halt the violence, accusing the U.S. and its allies of trying to start another war.

Now the Russian Black Sea fleet’s Iman tanker has arrived in the Syrian port of Tartus on the Mediterranean Sea with an anti-terror squad from the Russian Marines aboard according to the Interfax news agency. The Assad government has insisted it is fighting a terrorist insurgency.

The Iman replaced another Russian ship “which had been sent to Syria for demonstrating (sic) the Russian presence in the turbulent region and possible evaluation of Russian citizens,” the Black Sea Fleet told Interfax.

RIA Novosti, a news outlet with strong ties to the Kremlin, trumpeted the news in a banner headline that appeared only on its Arabic language website. The Russian embassy to the US and to the UN had no comment, saying they have “no particular information on” the arrival of a Russian anti-terrorism squad to Syria.

Russia also urged the West to tone down the anti-Assad rhetoric… (as Assad continues to slaughter protesters).

    They will get what they are looking for…

    And the world thinks the Russian Communists don’t exist?

    They are still our enemy, and the enemy of freedom.

    If true I guess the US does not have to go in. Took something off Obamas war plate. He does not have to worry now about how to honor our troops that might have had fight his war. See how Obama saved and created our military.

    and they accuse Israel of faux massacre’s.. *sigh*

    Still – I’d rather have the Russians fighting the muslim brotherhood than no one – and obama is making it worse, not better. So I’m glad Russia is doing this. I just pray to God obama doesn’t help the mb bomb Russian troops while they are there.

    The enemy of my enemy is my FFN (friend for now).

    Makes me a little nervous to have Gog and Magog in the area.

    Bashar Assad always struck me as a Heinrich Himmler with more hair and more height.

  • democraps suck

    Quick! Get Shrillary! She needs to get her little “Reset” (well, “overcharge”) button to Putin real fast!

    Why would anyone expect the Russians who demolished Grozny and killed thousands and thousands of Chechnyans to be upset or put off by Assad’s murder of a mere 8,000.

    Once again the New Wolrd Order cult makes a big military move during the Ides of March.

  • Larkin

    For once I agree with the russians.

    No matter how bad an arab dictator, he’s still less of a threat to the world than the islamists and sharia.

    When the Soviet Union fell apart, and the Berlin Wall came down, I remember a late night talk show host said, (and I’m paraphrasing)

    “This is a KGB operation, they’re cutting off some of the small states, and presenting themselves as a new and free country in order to get trade deals, so they can get their economy going. Nothing has changed except the size of the country.”

    At first, I thought he was crazy. As years have passed, I can now see he was 100% right.

    That’s going to make it a little awkward if we want to bomb Syria the way we bombed Libya.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    See the generals in their masses….. Just like witches at black masses…..

    Syria must owe Russia money. That’s the only reason the troops are there…to make sure Syria pays up.

  • Dave-O

    According to Shrillary – President Assad is a “reformer”

    Not to worry though – we have the smartest President in the history of the United States – maybe the smartest man EVER! working on this. Along with his ace VP Biden and Shrillary.

    What could possibly go wrong?

  • P. Aaron

    Syria must owe Russia money.

  • the real wow

    Where’s that “Reset” button? Oh, I forgot, the Russians have it and are resetting everything.
