Russia has begun works in the Syrian port of Tartus seeking to built a full-scale naval base for the ships of the Black Sea Fleet, currently based in Ukraine’s Sevastopol, the Kommersant newspaper reported on Friday, quoting unnamed sources in the Defense Ministry and the General Staff of the Russian Navy.

The paper noted that this is the first time Russia is setting up a military base outside the CIS since the fall of the USSR and that the base will allow Moscow to pursue its own line in the Middle East.

Russia has also started work in the port of Latakia in Syria, the newspaper said. The base in Tartus and the new mooring in Latakia will be able to serve the needs of the Black Sea Fleet and possibly the North Sea Fleet as well.

The newspaper quoted its sources as saying that in the nearest future the Russian Navy will form a squadron headed by the Moskva missile cruiser which will permanently operate in the Mediterranean, taking part in joint exercises with NATO forces.

The sources said that the new base would allow Russia to strengthen its positions in the Middle East and also enhance Syrian security.

However, the Russian Defense Ministry has refuted the report. Russia is not building a military base in Syria, spokesman for the Ministry Colonel Vyacheslav Sedov was quoted by RIA Novosti as saying.

Hi, Wul hi et al,

Doesn't it appear more and more that Putin seems like a player at the board game, Risk, quietly building up his pieces, moving them to strategic locations, while simply waiting and watching the rest of the players?

Why would Gog (Russia) be building a naval base in Syria unless it needed a logistical naval port against Israel?

Strange meanderings lately in the ME with all of the military buildup. Now Russia agrees to "upgrade" Syria's military with 1,000 new T-72 tanks, what for one would ask? Perhaps a land based assault on Israel?

Maybe this is the impetus required for the following to set Israel off.

Isaiah 17:1;

The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Keep looking up folks, things are getting heated up.

The favorite Russian wish of a warm water seaport.

I think that's how you spell hegemony in Russian.

This little announcement undoubtedly has the greybeards in the Pentagon shitting nickels.
