The only thing they can do is tell Russia straight up that they need to choose. Do you want Syria or do you want Ukraine? We are not going to let you have both. You don't see us invading our neighbors. If anything, they are invading us, lol. The joke is we didn't hardly have any troops in the Baltics until Putin started going off the deep end. He is like a paranoid relic from the Cold War or worse, a power hungry dictator that's wants "breathing room". Where have we heard that before?
let them have both?????

how does the U.S.A. have any say in what goes on there????

Russia is there because Syria's leader wants them there

people seem to forget this

(Reuters) - Russia is sending more warplanes to Syria to ramp up its campaign of air strikes, a Russian newspaper reported on Friday, as Moscow defied global censure over an escalation that Western countries say has torpedoed diplomacy.

U.S. President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel described the Russian and Syrian bombing of the city of Aleppo as "barbarous", the White House said after the two leaders spoke by telephone.

Fighting intensified a week into a new Russian-backed government offensive to capture all of Syria's largest city and crush the last remaining urban stronghold of the rebellion.

Moscow and its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, spurned a ceasefire agreed this month to launch the offensive, potentially the biggest and most decisive battle in the Syrian civil war which is now in its sixth year.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday that Moscow was ready to consider more ways to normalize the situation in Aleppo.

But in a phone call with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Lavrov criticized Washington's failure to separate moderate rebel groups from those the Russians call terrorists, which had allowed forces led by the group formerly known as the Nusra front to violate the truce brokered by Moscow and Washington.

The call came a day after Kerry said there was no point pursuing further negotiations with Russia over Syria "in the context of the kind of bombing taking place".

Western countries accuse Russia of war crimes, saying it has deliberately targeted civilians, hospitals and aid deliveries in recent days to crush the will of 250,000 people trapped inside Aleppo's besieged rebel-held sector.

Moscow and Damascus say they have targeted only militants.

And we send 40+ SPEC OPS to that area..
War Bait... just to have an excuse.
Sending in peon ground army men wouldn't be as theatrical to the media as, oh poor us. We lost our special operations teams.
Then I can see a serious escalation. just my opinion.

Turns out that Turkey and Saudi Arabia have both used the deadly white phosphorus against civilians recently so make no mistake. It's not Russia bombing civilians in Allepo, Turkey has done the same thing over a city to the east against Kurdish people via their big guns and Saudi has also done this against Yemen. Saudi Arabia also has aircraft in Turkey. The pictures of turkey shelling the Kurdish people matches the pictures of Aleppo being shelled with white phosphorus so Turkey is doing this shelling via their artillery.
