Alexander might have overlooked a very important point – Not only will the Russian navy be able to operate from an enlarged naval base – but the Chinese navy could be permitted to dock there as well – Doubly compounding the problem

DO NOT MENTION CHINESE SUBMARINES.

ESPECIALLY THOSE DEDICATED TO THE NORTH ATLANTIC.

Excellent report. I wonder why our mainstream media doesn’t seem to want us to know about this. I can guess why, as those controlling us are beating the war drums and the media is forced to report on non-existing aggressions and non-existing provocations by our non-existing enemies, as those threatened by US war mongering are building up their defenses.
This Russian investment in Syria also indicates that Russia is committed to protect Assad against the USraeli determination to oust him and conquer Syria.

Caspian Sea, Black Sea and now Eastern Mederainian sp., Your assessment that England, this country would be better served worrying about the Med. Sea seems a correct one. Recent Russian publication declared such intentions. Whats up with Eurasia video? No picture of video in opening and lacking 2 nd video picture when opened. Shakey, intell manipulated. Soon we wont have to worry what it thinks or not, it will be unplugged. Due to recent indications, I reviewed carefully DRCM and found that it is in a propable 3 leveled arrangment.

In fact, asphalt is more flexible than concrete, easier to repair (after bombing), drains better (concrete must be poured flat, while asphalt can be cambered). Regardless, Russian military aircraft are designed to use *any* flat-ish surface – rough runways, roads, tracks, etc, Their engine intakes are designed with louvers to prevent debris entering the engines on take-off, undercarriage uses larger (heavier) wheels to pass over pot holes. Russian military don’t do Top Gun movies, they do real warfare.

Indeed asphalt, like glass, is a super cooled liquid.

In climates where the sun shines all day and surface temperatures are above 30

Celcius, in that location, concrete is the material used.

Of course molten asphalt is sticky and often smelly.

DIB DIB and woof woof.

Those bombers were based on Hmeimim airbase in Syria before but Putin ordered their return to Russia in an effort to please the americans. It failed and now they are back. There is no military final solution inspite the fact Syria won the war, unless a fait accompli is forced upon Turkey and America as they keep training and deploying ISIS fighters into Syria.

Stay out of Syria, they don’t want you interfering.
Assad is a better president than Biden could hope to be.

Same result different country, the West tried their little tricks in ousting Russia from Crimea, and now the Russians are based in Syria forever. Must be deflating being an American imperialist.The imperialist American adventures are coming to an end for along time, particularly the fact the U.S dollar is imploding the battering ram for U.S hegemony for the last 40 years.
