Russian commandos plan to escort Assad to safety. Russia plans on sending warships and marines to Syria. The Black Sea Fleet warships are ready for the Syrian coast. And IDF officials say Iran is realizing that Assad’s regime is finished.
Israel National News reports: Two Russian navy warships are to sail to Syria to protect Russian citizens and its naval base there, according to accounts by Voice of Israel radio's veteran "listener" Miki Gurdus, who specializes in listening to radio broadcasts on various frequencies worldwide. The Russian official mentioned nothing about evacuating Assad, but said the ships will carry an unspecified number of marines to protect Russians in Syria and evacuate materials from Tartus if necessary.
Times of Israel reports: A Russian navy official said that the Nikolai Filchenkov and Caesar Kunikov amphibious assault vessels will be traveling to the Syrian port of Tartus. The official said the warships will transport marines to protect Russians in Syria and evacuate materials from Tartus when necessary.
The Itar-Tass News Agency reports: Warships from the Russian Black Sea Fleet are preparing for Syria, the Russian General Staff told Itar-Tass recently. ‘The Mediterranean Sea has always been the zone of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet responsibility. Thus, warships may go there during crisis periods to protect the Russian's logistics base in Tartous, Syria. ‘Several warships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, including large landing combat support ships with marines aboard.
Israel National News reports: IDF Spokesperson Brigadier General Yoav Mordechai said that Syria's allies Iran and Hizbullah are realizing that Bashar Assad's regime has “reached its end." He said, “Assad’s allies are beginning to understand that the end is just a matter of time and therefore I wouldn’t be surprised if they are already planning for the day after.”
A regime change is underway in Syria as Assad prepares for war and eventual departure from his country. A few Mideast analysts believe that Assad will attack Israel before surrendering power to the rebels and the Muslim Brotherhood. When Assad is overthrown, the Muslim Brotherhood will take over the country; therefore, there is really no major change. Additionally, Obama will do whatever he can to advance the Islamic caliphate theocracy forming throughout the Mideast. He is waiting for the right moment to use American soldiers. He has done this in Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt with the cooperation of the powerful Muslim Brotherhood.
