Why are these guys getting involved?  :hmm: Thought there was supposed to be some sort of agreements appearing in the peace talks.  :nooo:

I imagine that the answer is in paragrapgh 2.

Social media in Syria has been flooded with requests for people to join Russian troops in return for up to $7,000 for deployment.

It's good to moan.

That's not what I was meaning. Syria has been flattened and people becoming refugees. Why suddenly side with the enemy.

I thought that the Syrian government which the Russians helped was still in power. They have been allies for a long time.

It's good to moan.

The problem with being retired is that you never get a day off

Yes the Russians were supplying the Assad government with wepons, so its pay back time I guess.

They were delivering ordnance to the opposition too. Dropped from their planes onto them. Plus plenty of civillians.

It's good to moan.

Russia has also been a good friend to India.... so the whole world looks at Putin with diffrent glasses..
