They must have thought there was Palestinian women and children on board, besides they’re firing at a ship that isn’t shooting back or using defencive measures

Lone Ranger

Impressive.
By 1960s standards…

travels at less than mach 1—easily targeted and demolished by Russian s-300, 400, 500…the pitiful US thaad, aegis cannot find Russian hypersonic that travel at between 9mach to 15 mach…I suspect these missiles can harpoon Palestinian fishing vessels

Like the Israelis are not bombing Syria every week.

idiot bacon—Israel can only destroy sand dunes from Lebanese air space…return to mommy in Zhitomr or halifax

1st. Syria aknowledges soldiers casualities so Israel doesn’t destroy only ‘sand dunes’. 2nt. What’s difference makes for the S-300 if the Israeli missile is fired from the sea ir from Lebanese airspace?

RichardD

Only because it’s an escalation management issue. Once the Syrian victory is further along. Then the transition can be made from missile to to missile destruction to launch platform to launch platform destruction.

The IAF rarely destroys Syrian anti aircraft launchers. And hasn’t shot down a single Syrian fighter that I can remember. And if they have it’s rare. Many of the IAF targets are undefended low value targets. And the targets that are defended have to be hit with saturation strikes to insure that some get through.

This would all change when IAF and IDF launch platforms start being destroyed. Rather than only missiles.

What you say makes some sense but please don’t interfere when I rise blood presure in some mindless being, there is nothing constructive for you to participate in my dirty fetish.

S-300 is too much for such target. Naval versions of “Tor”, “Tunguska/Panzer” and new medium range “Poliment-Redout” with 2 missile types 40 km and 120 km range is enough.

If you want to believe Alex Jones’ China bashing, Hollywood and US main stream media have been taken over by China. My research shows a far different reality. As of less than a year ago 6 of the top 7 leading executives of the largest US movie companies are Jews. And the 7th, Gianopulos, has been described as a shabbos goy doing the Jew’s work for them.

“October 30, 2019, 6:00am PDT

For the first time, Warner Bros.’ Toby Emmerich, Paramount’s Jim Gianopulos, Disney’s Alan Horn, Universal’s Donna Langley, Sony’s Tom Rothman, Amazon’s Jennifer Salke and Netflix’s Scott Stuber gather to debate streaming service ratings, movie star value, China censorship, onscreen violence and the future of a fraught movie business.”

I don’t see any Chinese here. It’s obvious that the US msm is run by Jews.

At this time my perspective of Alex Jones’ globalist omnicide plan is that it’s real. However I differ as to who’s behind it. His perspective is that it’s a satanic globalist/Chicom combine. Mine is that it’s a Jew world order project.

Alex is welcome to log on to SF with a Disqus account to debate this issue with me. To let people decide who’s telling the truth and who’s not. I’m confident that my evidence is stronger and will reveal the truth that he’s avoiding and covering up. As part of a blame shifting exercise away from the Jews responsible for many of the planet’s problems that he complains about.

Subsonic and very small range, way behind anything that USSR has fielded long time ago as anti-Ship super sonic missiles that can go up to Mach 2,5 like P-800 Oniks and with double range.
Not to mention Russia’s upgrades of those Soviet ones and completely new Kalibr and new hyper-sonic Mach 9, Zircon .

Антон С

Ha-35 (some people think it’s X-35) is analogue of “Harpoon”. Different types are needed, lighter and heavier. US navy has light only. Plus anti-ship variant of “Tomahawk” (BGM-109 B/E), out of duty, but possibly can be used.

RichardD

Judaism should be outlawed and abolished so the Jews and Israel cease to exist and the planet is Jew free. They are the planet’s biggest problem at this time. And need to be extinct to improve life here and create a better future.

The U.S and Israeli tech are the best.

You’re losing the Syrian war because of zioNATO weapons inferiority. The occupied territories are then in the pipeline. Which is why the zioJew elite is rolling out the bioterror omnicide plan. Because they can’t compete economically or militarily. And their hegemony project is toast. So you might want to look at your life from a European Jew WW2 perspective. Where the Jew elite are coming to genocide you, your family and your neighbors.

“Yahont” (old word for ruby or sapphire) is the best one. Flies at 300 km with 2M speed and 2,6M (750m/s) at high altitude. Can be much more 300 km, because missile is big (3 tons), it has large inside volume, and 300 km is the limit due treaty. “Yahont-M” has 800 km range. “BraMos” is indian version of “Yahont”. And don’t forget about hyper-sonic “Dagger”.

You’re right, I add Russian tech to the list.
