Russia establishing naval base on Syrian Mediterranean coast

Ships, piers, command and control, air defense. That’s what Russia is establishing as a permanent military installation in the failed state of Syria. This apparently includes the fabulous S-300 next-gen surface-to-air missile battery, which you may remember from the time that airliner got shot down over Ukraine.

You know, in addition to violating Finnish airspace and hacking U.S. political elections.

Dear strategy colleagues: geopolitics should still be part of your analysis for future scenarios.
