Obama decide to attack Syria in 2 weeks. Yet, unlike Libya, Syria is a very different case.
First Libya is very isolated. No strong country to help it. And Libya's population is less then 6 million people. Very weak.
While Syria is surrounded by Iraq, Iran, and also Egypt. There is also Russia Naval Base there. With 22 million people, Syria is much stronger than Libya. Don't expect Russian's War Fleet just to watch the West's attack.
Syria has threaten to attack Tel Aviv with missiles. While Putin has already order massive strike against Saudi Arabia if the West Attack Syria. Imagine if Riyadh, US military bases, and also Oil Fields there destroyed by Russian, Iranian, and Syrian's Missiles? Ankara in Turkey and Amman in Jordan will get the missiles too.
Is Obama ready for that?
Putin Orders Massive Strike Against Saudi Arabia If West Attacks Syria
A grim “urgent action memorandum” issued today from the office of President Putin to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is ordering a “massive military strike” against Saudi Arabia in the event that the West attacks Syria.
According to Kremlin sources familiar with this extraordinary “war order,” Putin became “enraged” after his early August meeting with Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan who warned that if Russia did not accept the defeat of Syria, Saudi Arabia would unleash Chechen terrorists under their control to cause mass death and chaos during the Winter Olympics scheduled to be held 7-23 February 2014 in Sochi, Russia.
Lebanese newspaper As-Safir confirmed this amazing threat against Russia saying that Prince Bandar pledged to safeguard Russia’s naval base in Syria if the Assad regime is toppled, but he also hinted at Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia’s Winter Olympics in Sochi if there is no accord by stating: “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us.”
The revelations come amid high tension in the Middle East, with US, British, and French warship poised for missile strikes in Syria. Iran has threatened to retaliate.
