Why did Syria allow the Russians to set a naval base in their country knowing full well that this would make them a prime target for the U.S.? Did Syria gain anything from letting Russia use their country as a geopolitical chess piece? I am thinking there's more to it, because I don't see it as a win-win for Syria in any way.
