#2 In other words, having been unable to convince the world that Iran is a terminal threat to "democracy" everywhere and the window of destroying its nuclear processing facilities now officially closed, and with both the Lebanon and the Gaza conflicts hibernating, the only loophole left to escalate the region is now Syria, where the event timeline now appears to culminate in 2-3 months.

"Russia has concentrated five landing ships ... carrying military vehicles and hundreds of Russian marines...."

PAT batteries are defensive. An amphibious assault force is offensive. So who is escalating?

The Twit deserves a nuclear armed Iran with missiles having just enough range to hit his home town. Guess he will want those PAT batteries then.
