James Minney: Impression on PRAVDA.Ru publication

It would be reasonably clear that the Iraq campaign would have been impossible if the neighboring countries, at the same time as speaking against the war, had not provided significant logistical support to coalition forces. **IF** they decided to provide no such support or allowances at all for an invasion of Syria, it would be rather more difficult. But that is not so likely.

Many thanks for your valuable article
