#1 I'm reminded of Monty Python: "Run away, run away!"
Odd, surrendering their diplomatic mission AND running a Naval exercise.
I wonder if in review we'll find that ALQ/IRN has supplanted the original dissenters.

#6 Just the high-priority Russians are being taken out by airplane. There are a lot more who are still waiting to be evacuated - and some who plan to stick around during the "armor blitzkrieg" that Assad is about to dump on his kinsmen.

It must be a bit discouraging to be a "low-priority Russian" ... and be living in an unstable third world country :-)
