I was always curious as to how/why Russia gets involved in such an attack. I guess I know now.
Also take a look at Russia’s financial support of Iran, their support of Assad, their alliance with China... There are a lot of things Russia has been doing for years that have been pointing in the direction of being involved in the Middle East. You have to realize that it’s not necessarily out in the open, but will be when it comes down to it. Russia has had their hands in the Middle Eastern “pie” for quite a while now.
