Understanding the Russian Involvement in Syria

10 Sivan 5778

In six easy steps...

  1. Russia has a monopoly on the supply of gas to Europe.
  2. Europe wants out from under the Russian thumb.
  3. To do that, they wanted a pipeline through Syria to bring in gas from Qatar.
  4. Assad, also under the Russian thumb, refused to give permission, hence the West determined that Assad must go. Result: seven years of Syrian "civil war."
  5. Up pops Israel and says, no problem, we'll sell Europe our gas
  6. The head of the Russian monster swivels towards Israel with a gleam in its eye.

Moral of this story: Do not get between Russia and her European gas market.
