Why are Syrian Kurds pivoting toward Moscow?

P.S. Why Moscow is training Taliban fighters across the border in Tadjikistan? Asymmetrical you say....

Conspiracy people are saying it's a harbinger of a coming Israeli invasion against Hezb.

If someone has done something five times, belief that they'll do the same thing a sixth time isn't a "conspiracy".

The conspiracy isn't that Isreal will invade, numbnuts. It's that Gulf States are close enough with Israel to know it and take action.

I doubt Israel will attack Hez , they did not fare well in the last Lebanon war against Hez. Nowadays Hezb. is better armed by Iran and Russia , possibly larger, better organised and certainly has even more real war experience. Israelis know all that , so I doubt they will attack first and even if provoked Israel will tread very carefully with Hezb.

Shortening Hezbollah doesn't make sense. Hezb = party Allah = God. Unless that was a typo.
