Because there wasn't any prodding; there was vicious bloodlust and a secretary of state so dense he gave Putin the perfect opportunity to save Syria and its weapons from a US attack.

If the US attacked Syria there would be a response from Russia. There are about 30,000 Russians living in Syria. Russia sees the Middle East as a new market since the USA is not too popular in the Mid East right now.

No doubt; however, that doesn't change the fact that the US didn't do any "prodding," it got led down the primrose path by Putin like a cow with a ring in its nose.

I blame bad leadership on the US and Obamas embracement of the extreme Islamists. The USA has pissed off every nation in the Mid East with the exception of Israel.

Calling what this administration does "bad leadership" is giving them way too much credit.

You are sorely mistaken. The USA has REALLY pissed off Israel.

Yeah ... but I'm still not sure what that means.  They're angry, and now what?

Obama will not return Netanyahu's advice on anything anymore. But the weapon sales continue between the USA and Israel. The USA is supposed to fufill a deal on F-35s soon.

Good question. One thing they may do is start looking elsewhere for equipment, instead of dealing mainly with the USA. When your so called ally repeatedly and publicly stabs you in the back, you start worrying about your supply chain.

Back in the early 70's the French stopped supplying parts for the Mirage fighters the IAF relied on. While some parts could be copied, many couldn't - they didn't have the alloy composition or the accurate specs to make reliable replacement parts. So they flat out stole the blueprints and spec sheets. Think they are unwilling to do that again if necessary?
