"The buildup is one of Moscow's most aggressive military provocations in years and could be a vital lifeline for the Assad regime, whose forces have suffered a series of battlefield losses to Islamic State extremists and other rebel groups.
The U.S. and Russia both are eager to defeat the Islamic State militants in Syria but otherwise are backing different factions in the civil war.
The level of communication and cooperation that will emerge between the two militaries remains unclear. Cooperation could include sharing tactical information about flight plans or troop movements to avoid in-air collisions or inadvertent strikes. The two militaries could coordinate strategic plans to defeat Islamic State militants. And they could discuss military aspects of a long-term political solution to the four-and-a-half-year-old civil war."
