and then we have reports that the boat carrying the attack helicopters the Russians were sending turned around and went back home:

And that the Russians are sending ships to protect/evacuate their naval port in Syria

And a Syrian Pilot defected to Jordan, taking his MIG with him.

Full out civil war.
