Putin has been planning for this for 2 years. His bases in Latakia and Tartus on Syria’s Med. coast are ready and all Soviet, I mean, Russian ships have been moved safely out to sea.
Obama is going to ineffectively bomb Syria and Russia, Syria, Iran, Hizbollah and HAMAS will hit Israel and maybe Jordan. Then, Obama gets what he wants.
Why would Putin give Obama what Obama wants?
Putin’s best bet is to allow the U.S. to dissolve it’s own influence in the region, outside of Israel, and essentially ignore Israel as long as they stick with defending themselves against Hezbollah and Hamas.
