Russia to Pull Out of Syria! Why?

Russia to Pull Out of Syria! Why?

Without question the Russian military has decimated the ISIS presence in Syria, but why would Russia pull-out when Syria is just about to get back on their feet? There are several scenarios, but I think Putin’s current chess play is about oil, and oil prices.

The world is totally unaware as to the true state of the Syrian war and the ISIS factor. Russia’s latest move will create three potential situations:

1. Saudi Arabia may attack Syria. The intended aim is not the overthrow of Assad, or ISIS, but to intentionally destabilize Saudi Arabia. In so doing, oil prices would immediately start rising.

2. An attack by the Saudis might create an entanglement factor for Iran. Should Iran be drawn into a Middle East conflict, the price of oil would sky-rocket.

3. Assuming 1 and 2 occurs, then the United States would ultimately do what it always does – intervene and create more chaos. With an already depleted and exhausted military, the USA would fall prey to a Russian led invasion of the Middle East and potentially the USA. In this scenario Russia would have the full support of China.

Putin is a genius! Increase the price of oil, and take out America at the same time. Let's keep and eye on this singular event and see what unfolds.

Thank you,
