Building starts of permanent Russian air and sea bases in Syria

Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu reported Tuesday: “Last week, the Commander-in-Chief (President Vladimir Putin) approved the structure and the bases in Tartus and in Hmeimim (air base). We have begun forming a permanent presence there.” The deal with Damascus covers the expansion of the Tartus naval facility, Russia’s only naval foothold in the Mediterranean, and grants Russian warships access to Syrian waters and ports. Russia may keep 11 warships at Tartus, including nuclear vessels. The agreement is for 49 years and could be prolonged. The Hmeimim air base, can now be used by Russia indefinitely, according to the deal.

      As America lessens footprint in the Levant, Israel becomes tip of the spear in the region by default.

      America has delayed too long in Asia regarding damping down PDRK, China’s cat’s paw. Either PDRK or “False Flag” event brings HAMP/EMP over North America. North Koreans do not require re-entry shield on nuclear warheads to effect detonations in Troposphere. Mainland USA paralyzed and mind on preventing famine due to transport/distribution ability cut by 90%, presents little help for Israel. Daniel 4 V-15 suggests parallels; “Great Tree sheltering many laid low. Note phrase “Preserved From Destruction with roots bound by Iron and Brass.

      No stretch to see railroad playing crucial role as famine hedge. Strategic planners can boast they are atheists, and see strategic value of railway lines in disaster recovery nonetheless. Thousands of miles of abandoned feeder rail lines in the USA beg for rehab and rebuild. This is more than a” nice to have” suggestion… All hands concerned with Preservation Of The Union Of States has a stake in “adopting” part of the rail corridor rehab. Federal side of this is re-commissioning US Army/Guard Railroad Construction And Operating Battalions, following Ft Eustis VA RR Unit template.

      DEBKA has ways and means to connect funds to US Strategic rail matric rebuild.

    US policy won’t change. They will just have another power there to contend with. The Israeli policy will change, they will no longer be able to terrorize Syria

      @Bruce Lee,

      The actual facts are that Syria is being terrorized from within: just ask the Syrian air force (barrel bombs with nerve gas), the Russian air force, Iran, Hezbollah, ISIS, and all the Shiite mercenaries from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq!

    The End of Israel is near – that’s why the hamster declared Jerusalem capital of the Cursed. KKK, Nazis and good Christians made him do it. Just wait and see – GOD’s revenge on those who killed His Son!

      For the record, the Romans (Gentiles) were also guilty. The scourging, the crown of thorns, the beating with a reed, and the mocking…all Romans.
      Jews and Gentiles are BOTH guilty of the killing of the Son of God and his blood will ever be required till they both repent, although the greater sin is on Israel’s, according to the Messiah himself. Get it already.

      It’s interesting to note how you clumped those 3 together.
      It sounds like you’re upset that the side you supported lost WW II!

      This Jeshka fellow probably never existed. The protagonist of the Christian scriptures is more-than-likely a composite figure, Hillel having provide a model for the authors of the so-called “new testament”. The Romans were nailing-up just about anyone who looked at them cross-eyed in those days, so there was ample material upon which to base their myth-creation stories.

      Tin hat? How about 2,000 years of history as proof?
      Matthew 27:26-27
      Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

      Luke 23:28-31
      But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
      For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
      Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
      For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

      There followed:
      The Roman slaughter of 70 AD
      The persecution by Claudius
      The persecution by the Byzantine emperors
      The persecution by the Muslim Caliphates
      The persecution by the Catholic crusaders
      The persecution of Jews during the black plague
      Isabelle and Ferdinand and the Spanish inquisition
      The Nazi Holocaust with an international nod of acceptance
      The persecution by Muslim neighbours
      And no end in sight.

      You may not be able to see the spiritual background behind geo-political events, but even an atheist is forced to confess the above recorded history as it has unfolden since Israel crucified its own Saviour.

      Tin hat…

        @Harim,

        By your own documentation, it is evident that Christians have either directly done or participated in a lot of murdering throughout history. If, hypothetically speaking, the Rabbi Jesus was born at a later time to have witnessed or researched all of this (instead of having been executed by Roman authorities 2000 years ago), what would he have to say to you?

    Once the Soviets (oops———I meant the Russians) settle in, they always forget to go back home!

    No death for Israël, this is the death prepared by Creazy Kzar-Putinof for all humanity, only insects will survive, this is what Putinof is preparing for us all… wherever you live.

    Jesus said he is the light of the world, that is to say, he dies every day at night and ressuscitates every day in the morning, but if humanity dies, Jesus will résussitate only for ants, cockroaches and for all the other insects… Jesus will die of wearyness no more God if the world’s changed into Karatchai and bykal russian contaminated lakes.

    If Bachar al Assad is the new slave for the new Pharao Putin, no more slavery for Israël under the new Pharao-Kzar-Putin, he will die first.

    Honestly, all these referring to God have broken the boxes, I personally do not care. But the only thing that really bothers me is that someone in the name of God breaks the boxes to the next. And if one wants to reach his God it is the duty of enlightened democracies to make sure that he does it as soon as possible without harming others.

    I am afraid of this development. something big is behind this build up. Their armaments were meant to defeat israel during Yom Kipur war. When israel emergeged victrious during Yom Kipur war, they threatened to deploy soviet soldiers to Israel. America responded by issuing nuclear attack readiness. The same players during Yom kipur war are together,pursuing the name cause which failled? Kindly sit back and analyse well, history might be developing. How do you find this with US foreign policy? AM AFRAID OF THIS
