Not so sure Putin is trying to out maneuver Barry and the neocons-neolibs. Perhaps he's just trying to do what's best for Russia, Eastern Orthodox Christians, peace and stability against hegemony.
The West wants to set up refugee camps in Syria with UN (Western) control. Putin has proposed the same thing and also attaches "to help Assad control the situation" paraphrase.
The west wants Assad isolated (or out) so that the West can put Syria in conflict with some Eastern Block country(ies).
With Russia in the country doing what the West claims to want to accomplish it makes it difficult for the West to remove Assad and have a puppet government to creat any conflict that the West wants.
With Russia in place backing Assad controling the refugees there is no need for the West to push into the country to remove Assad under false pretense.
It is definitely what is best for Russia and the Eastern countries.
The road to Iran is thru Syria. Russia has some defense agreements with Syria and Iran...Syria and Iran are on their or close to Russian borders. Russia does not want any more surrounding of their country with US empire military bases (esp with American current militarism), nor do they want a natural gas pipeline detoured thru Haifa or Turkey on way to Europe. Further 2 million+ Eastern Orthodox Christians live in Syria and 5+ million in the greater area. Putin will not throw these Christians to the ravenous US-Israel-Saudi backed ISIS/ISIL gangs to be killed. It his interest to curtail this stuff, and Having seen what transpired in Lybia, Iracq, Syria so far, and the sneaky US-Israel Ukrainian revolt, its is further his and Russian interest to curtail this kind of hegemony; and maybe just for humanitarian reasons. This involves curtailing dollar hegemony as well.
Putin also said that Russia would also help Assad/Syria fighr ISIS or whice ever they call the local terrorist. How could the US object?
Putin in manuverinv to keep Assad from beinng thrown out and a new puppet regime from being placed by the US.
After attack on Russian mil base, the Russians are claiming ISIL/ISIS is receiving detailed advanced imagery from some body according to Russian news agency Segodnia...
. The United States has supported terrorists in Syria since the very beginning of the conflict while the Russians have provided tangential but growing support for the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.
The fact that Russians are now engaged in combat in Syria now greatly increases the likelihood that the two opposing superpowers may “accidentally” or even intentionally find themselves in direct conflict with one another in Syria.
Yet, while the Russian marines fighting off ISIS attacks is news enough, perhaps the most important revelation is that, according to Segodnia, the ISIS fighters apparently had detailed plans of the base as well as clear satellite imagery of the military installations located there.
The question then becomes, how did ISIS, a terrorist organization which has yet to launch its own satellites into orbit, acquire such sensitive and important material?

BE...looks like China, and Iran, are joining Russian Federation movement to run ISIS/ISIL out of town and out of business. This likely means Barry and the neolibs-neocons are going to back off on the US-Israeli-Saudi plan to oust Assad...
Key feature of the neolibs-neocons that run the US is they have always been incapable of foreseeing all the possible results of their actions, or how others might react to their agenda. That's because they're egotistical psychopathic slobs. Eg..W's Iracqi war.
Or as Paul Craig Roberts says, they are stuped. (not about this in particular, in general)
They didn't see it coming that Russia and China would put armament and troops in place to block the US play in going after the US "goal " of getting rid of ISIS/ISIL or what ever flavor Jihadist that they are dealing with.
I have always wondered who said the neolibs-neocons are smart. Stupid is correct, except they don't know they're, fools; PLUS they think they have God on their side and are chosen.
On of the more disturbing things human beings have to endure is people who think they're smart but are actually thick as a brick.
After the Mecca stampede mystery it looks like Putin told the Obama and zionist regime to get out of Syria. Meanwhile, 15 blasts (sizable) reported in China....likely to be blamed on muzzies. S400 missile batteries and Suhkoi fighters heating up.
Don't think so BBF. I think the Federation will wipe out ISIL/ISIS/CIA or McCain's Army, or any supply routes from Israel, or embedded troops in the way--don't think they're part in, but all the way in on this one.. Neocon-neolibs will spin this to say the Russians are rubbing out moderate anti-Assad forces. Heh, I don't think the Russians are going to differentiate between uber radical and moderate forces_ _all the same to them. I expect to see Chinese tankers docking in Tarsus in the future.
World geopolitics has a sea change underway.
I guess we'll just have to stay tuned and see what happens...TM7
