Russian Airstrikes in Syria: September 30 - October 16, 2015 aleppo hama idlib homs latakia russia

  • Here's one surprising reason Russia might not want to pick a fight with US ... - Business Insider: "This technological and intelligence edge is one of the reasons for the US' aerial superiority over Soviet-built combat aircraft since the fall of the Soviet Union.
    During the 1991 Gulf War, while in "direct aerial combat over Iraq, the US Air Force downed every Soviet-built tactical fighter that it confronted," Hoffman writes, even though they were being flown by pilots from what was then one of the most formidable militaries in the Middle East at the time.
    US pilots had a similarly perfect record when facing off against Yugoslavia's Soviet-built aircraft and air defenses during the 1990s Balkan conflicts." 


  • West should not appease Russia - EU-RussiaCentre.org: “Putin is not just a fireman who sets fires, he is an old-school imperialist. His operation in Syria is partly designed to divert attention from his dismemberment of Ukraine.” It argues that Europeans must wake up to Putin’s design before it is too late, otherwise it risks dissipating away the very security on which its unity and its prosperity are built.
