US Secretary of State John Kerry (click here) has expressed concern to Moscow over reports of Russian military build-up in Syria, the state department says.US media reports said Russia has sent advisers and hardware to Syria, in what Washington fears is an expansion of its support for President Bashar al-Assad.
Any such development would "escalate the conflict", Mr Kerry told his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.
Russia has been a key ally of Syria throughout its four-year civil war.
Sure enough. Now, I want to hear how the USA thinks that President Assad who was re-elected recently is worse than Daesh. I doubt the USA can make a statement actually backing Daesh. And there is something like 60 Syrian rebels trained by the USA, right?
President Putin has already stated the re-elected President Assad is willing to work with a power sharing agreement. In order for that to begin, Daesh has to defeated. Assad has been leading a war against them and now he will have an infusion of new weaponry. That weaponry will provide a conventional force for Syria and end the cruelty of poverty warfare and chemical weapons. Let's all hope it works as well as we want it to.
I suppose the USA can try for another resolution at the UN Security Council, but, that won't be passed. Russia will veto it along with China and most probably Great Britain and France as well. Now, that would be interesting to see. The USA the only permanent member all by itself.
