    LOL Where did i say US presence in South Vietnam was an invasion? South Vietnam had internationally legitimate government which had right to invite whoever it wished.

    Also do you really think Russians are going to send half a million people in Syria like US sent in Vietnam? From military POV Vietnam war can be viewed as an invasion due to sheer size of US presence while politically it was perfectly legal. Iraq war of 2003 was invasion from both military and political POV because it was illegal , without UNSC resolution or consent of legitimate government.

    In that case USSR never invaded Afghanistan because the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan asked USSR to bomb insurgents.

    The UN has no legal authority on which military action is legal, which is not legal. The UN is a feel good liberal supranational forum. Any nation has its own legal framework for military action.

    I agree that UNSC is basically worthless when it comes to big powers but i would not underestimate it`s role , there are reasons why Bush adm. tried to push Iraq war through SC first.

    Except the vast majority of simpletons like you viewed South Vietnam as an invasion.
    Mark my words, Russia will find a way to invade. Just like they invaded Ukraine.

    Su-25 can prove to be devastating for rebels. Russia has given Assad very potent fight machines.

    What a load of irrelevant tripe, can't reply to my sarcasm directly so you write a short convoluted story? I'll give you an example of politics when members of the pakistani parliament representing the people discussed openly and unanimously gave the middle finger to kill yemenis. Gulf politics is an oxymoron which you justifying once again.But then again according to you US who went back on the own word what regarding their redline will t osomething nasty to russia. Seems US is already conceded to the bear lol

    So telling the truth suddenly becomes "irrelevant tripe" because you say so?

    Since when is Pakistan comparable to my examples (Western European democracies)? There is an enormous difference. No point of any comparisons.

    Yes, all 200 million Pakistanis, including the 50 million illiterate ones or so, went to the polls to vote whether Pakistan should send a symbolic force to Yemen composed of some 1000 soldiers or not. OK!

    Nor has any Arab here or elsewhere asked Pakistan for anything. It's a few select leaders (individuals) out of 450 million Arabs. Besides the coalition is doing more than fine overall on its own and will succeed with it objectives eventually.

    I support the Arab coalition in their fight against the Houthi terrorist group who illegally took power in Yemen, who have committed many crimes before and after they took power, who are openly threatening KSA and who are not a solution for Yemen's problems by any means.

    In wars civilians die and that's a fact of life. It's unfortunate but that's the reality on the ground. Houthi's have no reason for envy on this front.

    One would have to be naive to think that the regional powers and the US would allow Russia to run the show in Syria completely without challenging them although it is evident that the Syrian opposition is very much on its own.

    Both Russians and Americans want the same thing, killing of Syrian people, so they can take over Syria. Whether Russians do the killing, or Americans do the killing, the end result is the same, deaths of Syrian people. Heck, Syrian people even help them out by killing each other. The Crusaders are coming! The Crusaders are coming! :nana: Russia's goal is to restore Syria to being a Christian country as it had been before the Muslim conquest, or at least put Christians in power in Syria.
