Adding to the international forces in the area, Egypt is reporting that a Chinese warship has crossed through the Suez Canal today into the Mediterranean, presumably en route to war-torn Syria.
The report adds additional credence to last month’s reports that a massive multi-country naval drill was going to be held amongst Syria’s allies off their coast, with Russian, Chinese and Iranian ships expected to take part.
The move comes as Syria’s ongoing civil war continues to worsen, and as Western nations continue to push for a UN-backed military intervention to install the rebels as the new regime. China and Russia, which are both close allies of Syria, have blocked such resolutions at the UN.
China has been vocal about this opposition to imposing regime change on Syria, saying they believe that the international community should stay out of the internal turmoil and let Syrians work it out for themselves

Keep the Western vultures out of this (or at least limit the foolishness of our leaders to arming the rebels).
Why dont the cowards from the w orld comunity" bomb Russia and China . It will be piece of cake ……
Mabye…..What a nice dream ……………..
Continued naked aggression by the so called "international community" (i.e. the war coalition of former colonial powers like GB,France, certain EU countries and especially Israel and the world aggressor no. 1 these days, the US) can only be encountered by military force.
Unfortunately this is the only language the warmonger nations understand. Demonstration of military strength by China and Russia will hinder the US to destroy another arab nation on behalf of Israel!
US intelligence has is that the Chinese ship will sail to Aleppo, then down to Damascus in a show of force
That will be interesting to watch since neither of those cities are on the coast.
Well he said 'US Intelligence'. You all should know by now who you're dealing with 🙂
I hope the military ships are filmed and the world can see china's new aircraft carrier . This ship was built by Russia for China . I may have seen it , or it may have been a miniture replica . This carrier is claimed to support a submarine base under its deck and between its twin hulls . Ever since the Clinton administration humilated both Russia and China in 1999 , they both have been on a fast track rearmement program . I'am almost sure they have a lot of bad surprises for us if we should try to attack them again like we did in Yugoslavia .
Need help. Russia, China and Iran are sounding like the realistic, rational voices here. What on earth?
Arming Assad with a few nukes might be the fastest way to stabilize the Middle East.
And it might already be the case. I know they have the Yakhont cruise missile. One of those, nuclear or conventional, would sink an aircraft carrier.
Its Time to STOP the USA and UK, MIND YOUR ON BUSINESS !
Come on guys. Stop with all the conspiracy hype. The three Chinese Navy vessels are on good will visits that include Israel, Turkey, Romania and Ukraine. They have been relieved on anti-piracy duty by the other vessels of a new (12th) Chinese anti-piracy Task Force in the Gulf of Aden/Horn of Africa.
Straight from the Chinese Ministry of Defence.
'After its departure from the waters of the Gulf of Aden, the 11th Chinese naval escort taskforce is scheduled to pay a friendly visit to Ukraine, Romania, Turkey, Bulgaria and Israel successively in two columns. It is the first time for the Chinese naval ships to visit Romania, Bulgaria and Israel.'

Details of their replacement the 12th Anti-piracy Task Force
Russian/Cninese NO from the Security Council materialises infront of the Syrian coast.
you are all crazy bastards who dont give a shiit about human life! " give assad some nukes to sort out the middle east.." the us should attack china and russia.." what the fuck? do you want people to die or what?
If Obama thinks his attack is only going to be "limited", he hasn't considered Syria's retaliatory options, see http://www.davekimble.org.au/syrias-retaliatory-o… , which could see him having to decide about back-pedalling in a humiliating down, or escalating to WW3.
