Russia deploys advanced anti-missile system to Syria for first time, US officials say

While the purpose is not clear, one US official asked sarcastically, “Nusra doesn’t have an air force do they?” speaking about the Al Qaeda-linked group in Syria. The Islamic State also does not fly any manned aircraft or possess cruise missiles, in a sign that Russia is directing its actions to protect itself against any potential attack from the United States or its allies.

                                     Well who was going to launch missile strikes on Syria in 2013 :shrug:

Putin was given a clear field of action by Obama, Kerry and Clinton. He can do whatever he wants over there without the slightest fear. His own resources are his only limitation.

Well it’s ok when NATO wants to set up a no-fly zone some place so why should they cry foul about this?
