Russia replaces destroyed Syrian gear...bad old days part deux...

via AlmasdarNews.
BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 A.M.) – A Russian naval vessel was photographed on Sunday crossing through the Bosphorous Strait, the Bosphorous Observer’s Yoruk Isik reported.

According to Isik, the Russian Alligator class landing ship was en route to the Port of Tartous in western Syria.
Story here. 

This reminds me of story those old skool Marines tell.  They'd practically wipe out enemy units, seize tons of gear and the next day they'd see new guys with new gear to take their place.

This is cold war shit part deux.

But wait!  It gets worse if reports are to be believed.

Supposedly Russia is about to quit messing around and supply Syria with advanced anti-air weapon systems.  This is to be expected in my opinion considering what we've done in the Ukrainian mess and now Syria.  WTF am I talking about?  We've been arming so called moderate terrorists with weapons in particular anti-tank missiles.

How long did we expect Russia, Iran and Syria to be on the losing end of that dynamic? 

IF true this will be a big deal.  It will dramatically curtail rotary winged operations if this thing spirals and it could put a hurt on us and our allies...particularly Israel that has made a sport of hitting various targets in Syria.

You get the bear sometimes the bear gets you.

We're gonna need some careful planning to keep this thing at a low boil if I'm reading things right.
