Putin signs decree drafting 150,000 conscripts into the military

British media reported that Putin is drafting new conscripts. However, their analysis doesn't make sense (the title of the article does). They think that it has something to do with Syria. If that was true he would send either regular troops or reserves. Because it will take a while to train all those people it seems that he is getting ready for a future conflict and Syria is just a convenient cover.

Russia moves to a war-footing: Putin signs decree drafting 150,000 conscripts into the military... as his jets launch new wave of air strikes in Syria.
