China, along with Russia, are showing by word and deed that the USA and her conniving allies still having evil designs on Assad and Syria, better be very, very, very, very careful of any wrong move. China's destroyers are supposed to be in Bandar Abbas for just four days conducting marine exercises with the Iranian navy, but by the time they actually get far away to be considered harmless by USA and partners, I bet it will be more like two weeks. Russia on the other hand has a permanent dock near Damascus for their own navy and I believe there's a warship standing by in those waters and has been for a long time.
BTW, France says it won't bomb ISIS/ISIL/IS/xyz in Syria, but they will continue giving aid and solace to those from it that are known as the angelic "moderate jihadis."
In the meanwhile, a little birdie tells me that several huge consignments of Syrian and Iraqi refugees are on their way to North America. Oh Glory Be ! So much enrichment ... I am overcome with joy. Thank you USA, Thank you Israel.
