Iran, Syria talks in Moscow amid stand-off with West

Russian diplomatic and military officials held talks with their Iranian and Syrian counterparts Friday, amid tensions with the West following Russia's conflict with Georgia last month.

Russian Navy commander Vladimir Vysotsky and his Syrian counterpart General Taleb al-Barri discussed stepping up Russia's use of the Tartus base in line with an increase in Russian naval missions, the reports said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia is sending a message, loudly and clearly, for the US and Israel to hear: just don't even think about a military "solution" to your issues with countries in the Middle East region you don't particularly like!"

Also, a Russian base at Tartus would give the Russians a permanent presence in the Mediterranean.
