Obama's droppings

Syria-Tartous. International navy in mediterranean sea

Sources: Submitted by SyrianPatriots; The real SyrianFreePress.NET work at: https://syrianfreepress.wordpress.com/2015/07/03/russian-warships-tartus/

Russia and Syria late last week signed agreements to grant… indefinitely… Russia's control of the port facilities at Tartus on Syria's west coast on the Mediterranean Sea.

The agreement, as we understand it, allows Russia to dredge the port facility; to install floating berths and to carry out repair works to the existing facilities that shall then enable Russia to keep 11 warships stationed permanently there, several of which are nuclear powered and others which can carry nuclear weaponry.

The agreement initially grants Russia rights to the port for 49 years but… and this is an important “But”… the deal can be automatically extended for further 25-year periods if neither side objects. Almost certainly it will be extended.

The port is Russia's access to the Mediterranean and with Russia's airbase in Latakia about 55 miles to the north of Tartus Moscow now has a very real and almost certainly a permanent military presence in the Middle East. This should never have been allowed, but under the Obama Administration and with Obama's acquiescence it has been. There is little that the US can and will do now that it has been done. We warned our readers of this many years ago; it is now fact and the new Administration shall have to deal with this new, harsh and somewhat frightening reality
