I'm also wondering what those 1,000 Chinese marines are supposed to do there.

It would be nice if they went ashore, sought out the Syrian command and control, and blew it up along with the personnel, including the guy at the top.

But I would be astonished if they did anything so practical.

And if not that, what?

Why would the Chinese side with Al Queda or Muslim Brotherhood terrorists? Seems like a pretty dumb thing to do.

How often does DEBKAfile have to be found to be completely wrong before you decide they aren't the most reliable information source?

As long as it's saying something they want to hear or use as some focus point....it's reliable in their mind.

That's where China has an advantage. They do things with the long term in mind. We only do things with the next election in mind.
