So, the Russian ship carrying helicopters turns back
the same day Obama and Putin talk. And there is no media response? (Other than Rachel).
It should be a win for Obama.

2. Naval Maneuvers in the Med. Sea.
Joint military drill amid violent crackdown Ė The armies of China, Russia, Iran and Syria are planning to hold naval maneuvers in the Mediterranean Sea over the next few weeks, Iranian news agency Fars reported Tuesday.
According to the report, 90,000 soldiers from the four countries will take part in the large-scale maritime war games, which will be held off the Syrian coastline.
The military maneuvers will include naval and anti-aircraft forces, as well as 400 aircraft, 900 tanks, Iranian submarines, minesweepers, warships and Russian destroyers.
The report also stated that Egypt has agreed to allow 12 Chinese warships to pass through the Suez Canal, adding that the military convoy is scheduled to dock in Syrian ports over the next two weeks.
Plus I read somewhere this AM (I think Yahoo) that Russia was sending two warships (in addition to the freighter) to protect and or evacuate their military base and associated personnel.
