We are bumping up against the most critical known unknown that determines the short and long-term future of the Middle East: Will Putin go all-in to defend Syria?
Yisrael’s new F-35s — one down & one to go?
Things have been going relatively well for Bashir al-Assad since late 2015 when Vladimir Putin stepped in and flipped the bird to the Government of Yisrael (GoY) and the American neocons (collectively, “iJews“) who have been trying to bring down the Assad government with a proxy “civil war” reinforced with CIA-armed terrorist groups. But now that Assad’s grip on power is strong again and the “civil war” is winding down, the toxic iJews are reverting to the 2-step Plan B – Step 1: chop up Syria like Daesh chops up American journalists; and Step 2: divide the pieces of the country between Shia, Sunni, and Kurds.
GoY’s primary objective has always been to get a free-fly zone over Syrian territory so that they can get their bombers to Iran intact. GoY doesn’t care if they are flying over Sunni or Kurds, as long as they don’t have to dodge Assad’s SAMs. Unfortunately for GoY, as long as Putin stays in the area and defends Assad, GoY’s direct path to attacking Iran is cut off.
