This is coolbert:

Finally and in conclusion yet more from the Israeli Internet web site Ynet:

"Russia's rebuke of Israel's Syria strikes wasn't mere lip service"

"lip service - - noun: an avowal of advocacy, adherence, or allegiance expressed in words but not backed by deeds"

As dated 24 January.

"Analysis: By making itself the sole superpower in the region, Moscow must create balance that keeps everyone happy; but the Israelis, the Syrians and the Iranians are all griping and fighting to advance their own interests."

"Following the kinetic military conflict in Syria on Sunday night between Israel, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and the Assad regime, Wednesday saw the 'soft' conflict between the sides on the public diplomatic arena. This is how struggles on the international arena are managed in the second decade of the current millennium: the fighting continues, but not with violence."

Not merely words on the part of the Russian? Lethal action will be taken to prevent further Israeli air force air strikes on Iranian targets located within Syrian territory. Indeed, some sort of combat action on the part of the Russian already a fact?

With regard to kinetic and soft conflict consider these definitions:

Kinetic - - "Kinetic military action is a euphemism for military action involving active warfare, usually including lethal force."

Soft - - "Soft war is the idea that non-kinetic means such as cyber warfare, communications interruptions, sanctions, and even misinformation and fake news are simply other methods of accomplishing a state or group’s aims without physical action."

Again, Israel, you have been warned. Indeed, this is tense and frightening.
