Russian special forces guard Syria’s Aleppo-Damascus highway

For the first time since Moscow intervened in the Syrian war, Russian special forces are guarding the Highway 5 link between Aleppo and Damascus which Syrian government forces wrested from jihadist rebels last week. They Russian troops were posted as a deterrent after Turkey threatened a major offensive against the Syrian army if it did not withdraw from areas captured in the northwestern province of Idlib.  This week Presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Erdogan are due to meet for a last effort to resolve their conflict over Idlib, Syria’s last rebel stronghold.

    A Russian enters a bar full of Turkish people.
    He’s wearing a t-shirt with bright lettering “Turkish got 3 problems.”
    Just a few seconds later the Turkish guys oppose him and say “Hey, yopu know what you’re wearing is insulting?”
    The Russian responds: “This is your first problem: You’re so easily offended.”
    The Turkish respond: “Okay, maybe we should settle this outside.”
    The Russian: “That’s your second problem: You always want to solve your problems with violence.”
    The Turkish bring him outside and pull their knives.
    The Russian: “And here’s your third problem. You always bring knives to gun fights.”
