Russian Forces In Syria Are On Combat Alert As US Considers List Of Targets To Attack Government Forces - Reports

Russian forces deployed in Syria, including S-400 and Pantsir-S1 air defense systems and Sukhoi Su-30SM multirole fighters, have been put on a combat alert, according to reports appearing from local sources in the country’s provinces of Tartus and Latakia where Russian military facilities are located.

Meanwhile, the Israeli TV channel i24NEWS claimed citing US officials that the US military is going to provide President Donald Trump with “a set of options for carrying out strikes against the Syrian government”.

“Both the Joint Chiefs of Staff and CENTCOM, the US forces in the Middle East, were compiling target lists and attack options to be presented to Trump and his national security team within hours, the officials said,” i24NEWS wrote.

A few hours earlier, a group of Israeli top officials and public figures officially called on Trump to conduct missile strikes against Syrian government forces in response to the alleged chemical attack in Douma.

In turn, Trump forgot that no confirmation of condicting the attack by government forces had been provided and claimed that “Animal Assad” will pay a “big price”. He also blamed “President Putin, Russia and Iran” for the incident.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry denounced the chemical attack reprots as “hoax” and warned that military actions against Syria could lead to the “gravest consequences.”

The conflict Syria is on the brink of another large-scale escaltion.

    All this goes through the naivety of the Syrian Government and its ally Russia

    • 1691

      Could you, please, elaborate a little bit more on “the naivety of the Syrian Government and its ally Russia”?

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        Yes my friend, naivety to believe enough in the word of a terrorist being defeated to stop fighting him, giving him time enough to carry out such a barbarity that unfairly will bring harsh consequences to Syria.
        What would not happen if the SAA would continued with its military campaign until Douma fell at once at the whatever cost without giving those long 10 days of rest that only used for what we all know to this day.
        Do you understand me, my friend? That is why my comment about the super ingenuity of Syria and Russia by confident and good people.

        • 1691

          We have some information about what is happening in Syria and we know and agree that it is horrible and it must end BUT !, I have some Syrian friends and they have told me that one can easily become a “rebel” just for being at the wrong time and at the wrong place. They are forced to be rebels. So, may be we should refrain from generalizations. The government of Syria and the people supporting this government plus the allies sure know better than us what is best. I am also sure that they want this war over, just like me and you, and they are doing their best.

          • Johnpd

            The Russians are proceeding with maximum diplomacy, trying their utmost not to provoke the mad nuclear armed gorilla, & his chums.
            The Syrians are proceeding with maximum humanity, trying to preserve as many civilian & combatant lives as possible.
            I fear the gorilla & its ZIONAZI/BANKSTER masters are determined on WWIII.
            We shall soon see.

        do your own research

    • 1691

      What you call naivety I call wisdom. USA is broken,( Why would Trump ask the French and the British to step in although we know that they were there, part of the coalition? Why he needs reinforcement? Why would he ask MBS to pay?) While they are hitting the bottom the Russians and Syrians are taking the time to save lives and clean out the rats. Sooner or later the americans will get out of Syria. They will be made to leave. The alternative is an all-out war. Which option do you prefer?

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        I hope you are right my friend. Because the truth, I still believe that the false chemical attack of yesterday, could have been avoided if the SAA and Russia would not stopped their attack on Douma ten days ago, for believing in a peaceful and negotiable solution from the terrorists in Douma, an attempt that not only failed, but also gave a a pretext that they did not have before, to the Americans, to openly and unjustly attack the Syrian government and achieve by force what they could not achieve otherwise with their terrorist puppets.

        • 1691

          But it is a false flag event!

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            ”A false flag event” but with pretty real and true big possible consequences for the Syrian army and also for its so passive and good people Russia ally, my good friend.

          • 1691

            So, you believe the msm propaganda. Woops.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            Only time will confirm or not the possible future events,
            but in the meantime I believe that you and me, we do not have to be genius to deduce the obvious, taking into consideration events of the past that was triggered by facts similar to those of right now, my dear friend.
            Let’s be reasonable and logical please.

          • Boris Kazlov

            Chill down, it has always been the policy of Russia and Syria to offer an olive branch first, hence the amnesty offered by Syria, and withdrawal. The false flag is not their fault, don’t pin the blame on them.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            Who am I to blame or give reason to one or to one other, my friend?.
            I think that the facts, are the only judge, talking about the fruits resulting from good or bad strategic decisions made by Syria and its Russian ally and nobody else, I’m afraid.
            Because both you and I, we only can share our humble opinions, right or wrong ones, but all of them according to our free way of thinking, and nothing else,
            my dear friend.

          • zman

            You mean the facts as you see them. You’re entitled to your opinion and your conclusions. It’s just that most here don’t see it your way. I don’t.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            This is my friend, and you are totally in your right to disagree with me as I can also be it with you.
            Because even true twins think differently.
            But self-respect begins where your own begins for those who think differently than you, my dear friend.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            Who am I to blame one or one other my dear friend?
            I believe that as always, the facts are and will continue to be the only judge capable of blaming Syria and its Russian ally for any good or bad results and consequences coming from their good or bad strategic decisions and nobody else, I am afraid.
            Because both you and I, we can only share our humble opinions, some wise or not, but each of them coming from our own different way from thinking
            So, relax my friend.

      there we go another childish brain, if there only the terror cells there that wouldn’t be the problem, they will just drop bombs until all is ash, but you forgot that there is civilians there, civilians trapped, and in prison and in street cages.

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        Please have a little more open mind for more understanding dear friend.
        Civilians losses in case of a savage and cowardly attack of the Americans on Syrian soil under the pretext of the false chemical attack will be much greater than the civilians in Douma who died yesterday in that same false chemical attack.
        In a war there will always be civilian casualties and more dealing with terrorists of that type, reason why they have to stop being so naive Syria and its ally Russia, instead of solving the problem by destroying once and for all terrorists there, for the own good of all civilians living in Douma..
        Time to grow up and thinking as an adult guy, my dear friend.

        • 1691

          You did not manage to convince me.
          Luckily, your relatives are far away from Syria and it is “highly likely” that they won’t be civilian casualties. In that case it should be okay.
          Basically, this is what you are saying.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            I just answered you below my friend.

    • Kandinski

      There are that problem with us as a Slavs, we have some issues with that, but not only that, majority of the world is mesmerized with USA and “their values” so Western supremacist could easily blackmail us all. With all rich western vassals around Syria logistics are some of the problem. Other thing is, those terrorists have too much people as hostages. And even with all negotiations and military actions western fake “moral leaders” can’t wait on Syrian mistake.

    Russia should warn the U.S that any attack on Syrian/Russian or Iranian troops will trigger an immediate and a massive volley of cruise missiles at strategic Israeli military installations, besides the U.S missile carriers in the region.

    • World_Eye

      It did maybe 5 times by now.

    • j. jaxson

      that would be the thing to do most likely.
      it would cause the most effective damage.

    • nilst2011

      Russia: ‘It is necessary to warn once again that any military intervention under far-fetched and fabricated pretexts in Syria, where the Russian servicemen are deployed at the request of the legitimate government, is absolutely unacceptable and might lead to very severe consequences.’

      • jerry hamilton

        It would be good for America to learn that Russia is not to be played with that way.
        Otherwise they will always play.
        Russia has already warned them.

    • Fast Amir

      Think it’s been done

  • World_Eye

    Well once for all maybe this so called world forces such as the US bitches and the Israhellis and others should be cleansed from a real super power such as Russia. Try to attack Syria and you are fucked then you stupid idiots, don’t you see what the Russians are saying to you in Syria, that everywhere, where there is Syrian soldiers there are also stationed Russian Advisers, striking on them is striking the Russia itself. This Trump old frozen brain is really the lowest scum on earth. I understand all on this earth but that Trump guy is so low piece of shit in which I can never Understand.

    • 1691

      I came to the conclusion, regretfully, that Trump does not have a heart but a piggy box and as for brain…. well… it’s missing.

      Trump is not in charge. The phalanx of generals around him is.

      • Harold Smith

        Trump is most definitely in charge, and he is completely morally responsible for whatever happens. That he may have delegated some or even all decision making authority to someone else is irrelevant.

        • Emperor Smith has spoken! :D

        • JustTruth

          President of US is directly accountable for any and all actions of the US military.

            Sadly this proves that the entire western countries where most MSM among them are down to this levels of kindergarten bs/

          • JustTruth

            Trump is fighting a war for control of government with the Deep State. Same thing happened to Obama re: Syria when the Deep State ignored agreements Kerry/Obama made with Russians. Trump is very smart, but is hyper reactive emotionally. He is also a New Yorker that will “punch you in face” to start a negotiation. Pay attention to what actually happens on the ground, not all the verbal smoke and mirror play going on. If something material had happened as an attack on Syria, the Russians would have unloaded holy hell on the instigator.

            Trump is the president. He has the power to not only refuse to go along with the Satanists, but to start rounding them up. Failing that, Trump could even resign rather than do such evil. Trump does the evil he does because he’s a demon-possessed Satanist himself. Wake up!

      You need to stop thinking Russia is a super power, it was once, but not anymore. Your Navy rusts along side the dock while combat ships sink at anchor in your harbors. FYI, your navy has a problem with fires on ships too… Who knows all the other “errors” your weapons and planes will experience under hard sustained combat. You should also stop worrying about European NATO because they are just a bunch of little girls and a low threat. The USA however is “IN FACT” a super power stand alone, not some Russia-Chinese wet dream army. If Russia, China, or Russia-China-Iran start a war with the US, there will be no more rules that normally constrain the US military. You will see whole land divisions and ocean fleets wiped out like so many Wagner Groups, and it will be a very sad time for everyone…

      • Steve Bell

        Yeah, go on… walk your trash talk and watch some supersonic Chinese anti-ship missiles turn the U.S. navy into fish food, while your stone-age tomahawks and harpoon missiles will be joke of the century.

        Not often you find such an idiot but here he is.

        Do not under estimate ‘little girls.’ Also, It seems the US military has never followed rules unless they suit their agenda. But you are correct in suggesting they represent a global evil.

      • AM Hants

        Really, then how come their new weapons make all that Nato has, including the US, obsolete?

      • Ricky Miller

        Russia is still a superpower, just one with a different set of capabilities. The USA is so clearly number one in it’s Palpatine like ability to move massive amounts of force into countries with limited size and means of defense. Russia is geared more toward making people pay for a conflict with her and her forces are designed toward defense and imposing costs. Russia’s surface to air systems are second to none, plentiful and attack with frightening velocity. Russia has large volumes of armour in reserve and most ominous, Russia has been busy since 2006 deploying hundreds of new ICBM’s which have greater take off speeds and are capable of avoiding missile defenses. That’s scary because the greater firepower of which you so glibly brag about on the part of the USA leads to the inevitable conclusion that Russia has to perform a massive first strike to stave off state elimination. It’s almost as if both sides in a conflict will be channeled toward strategic first strike before the other does. So, crow on…

      • Glenn McKeon

        I honestly dont know who would win. But
        I believe the US navy would be completely destroyed in under 12hrs (except for the subs) in a fullscale war. What chance have ships got against modern weaponry launched in large scale. A few thermobaric warheads could wipe out a fleet in close proximity. Dont even need to go nuclear. All these muppets that think someone can win a proper war are dilussional who ever is losing will take everyone down in flames with them. Do people really think a war could be won without nuclear exchange happening.

    • christianblood

      Russia and SAA and allies should fight back hard now and destroy the terrorists in Douma and use whatever possible to dislodge them.

      The Israeli lobby, Democrats and Republicans are provoking this war and forcing Trump’s hand. Trump said from the start that he wanted to get along with Russia but the Pentagon and Congress WANT WAR no matter what! I didn’t vote for Trump but let’s put the blame where it belongs.

  • Russie Unie
  • RamboDave

    It is time for Russia to perform a “crazy Ivan”. (this is a term from the cold war, when a Russian submarine would do a 180 degree turn on a US sub following behind it).

    Russia, right now, needs to mobilize forces everywhere, especially the Baltic, turn up the war talk and rhetoric full blast to cause a war “debate” within the US. If they don’t do this, the neocons will be able to implement their gradual escalation in Syria, leading to the partition of Syria.

    This needs to be done now to avoid the miscalculation path that the neocon-Zionists are leading the US into.

    Russia should announce a “training mission” to deploy a Division of Russian troops directly into the
    Damascus airport. After they are on the ground, then announce … “oh, and by the way, this Division has tactical nuclear weapons in it’s possession”.

    This will put an end to the neocon-Zionists fantasy of thinking that they can gradually escalate tensions and make Russia blink first. But, if Russia mobilizes now, It will be the US Congress that will demand a full debate over the War Powers Act, and what the hell the US is doing in Syria.

    If America can have a debate, It will be the US that blinks first. The US anti-war movement will mobilize against this march to war.The stock market will crash. Trump will ultimately listen to his base, whom he assured during his campaign, that he was against these endless Middle East wars that, as Trump claims, has cost the US $ 7 trillion dollars.

    Does the US public really want a nuclear confrontation over Syria? The US, being a supposed Democracy, might want to debate that first.

    Believe me, the Joint Chiefs and most US Generals are sick and tired of these endless wars to make Israel safe at the expense of 9,000 (and still counting) dead American soldiers. And, at the same time, not a single Israeli casualty!

  • nilst2011

        It is time Syrian government declare all its airspace NO FLY ZONE for all unauthorized aircraft and Russia use its air defence systems to enforce it.

        Suspect the Russians are well aware that a critical moment is inevitable in Syria at some point – but it appears NATO may accelerate it over last battle of Douma in East Ghouta. These militants pockets are crucial for NATO to maintain a systematic and destabilizing war against Syrian state – and NATO is absolutely desperate to maintain the pockets.

      • Tim Webb

      • Ricky Miller

        Could be though. If an American strike kills Russian service personnel or kills them by unintended consequences after the fact than Russia will strike back. Can China sit it out and wait for NATO to push Russia into a cave? And then be left alone? Doubtful. Better to fight now, with them than to stand alone later. And Russia, if the missiles are flying, has other areas of operations where there are issues and where force deployments favor them. Also, any hint of PGS and Russia must launch everything, at once or risk losing part of her strategic forces. Which means U.S. and British submarines trying to tail Russian ballistic missile subs are liable to be attacked and sunk as blows begin to fall. It could go from zero to totally crazy dangerous in something like an hour or two.

        • Lealeo

          “Better to fight now, with them than to stand alone later.”

          That’s a GOLD QUOTE that i have to underline, dude! Thanks!

    • Starlight

      Putin allowed a massive NATO spearhead to invade Syria from Turkey. And most of you here will act surpised when combined NATO forces from Britain, Turkey, France and the USA launch their massive assault on the flank of Syrian and Iranian forces. You’ll all be cyring “how could that mean ole Erdogan betray us”, because you are all SUCKERS.

      Zionist appeaser Putin has taken us to the very brink of WW3- now do you get why mainline zionist agent Saker told you Russia must NEVER punch the bully in the nose? Buying time for the Deep State to make its plans, execute its false flags, and corner Putin with his own Saker advocated appeasement.

      Here’s a clue for the clueless the bad guys LIE, and use LIARS. And these liars will pretend to be on our side in order to sell their lies, just as The Saker has done for so long now. The Saker, based out of one of the main jewish heartlands in the USA. Florida.

      Even today Putin could go to the UN, tell France, America, Turkey and Britian to get the hell out of Syria IMMEDIATELY and announce he was bringing, by treaty, Syria under the umbrella of the Russian Federation. But Deep State zionist trolls like The Saker will write endless garbage telling you why this cannot happen.

      So the very forces threatening Russia and the syrian people from WITHIN their bases in Syria were invited to stay in Syria by zionist appeaser Putin- you just couldn’t make this up. This situation and stupidity is unique in Human History. As the Deep State demons rolled around in total hysterics, Putin himself invited NATO power Turkey to invade Syria.

      Today the Human Race is closer to its end since any time after the invention of nukes. Both Russia and America have planned for limited conflict with each other that doesn’t automatically lead to the final escalation, but the theories behind this planning are totla unproven- and were based on an assumption of the MUTUAL RESPECT that was a factor in the Cold War. Putin, by being a zionsit appeaser, has caused Russia to lose all respect, leading to the terrible place where america may dare to go further against Russia, FORCING Russia to escalate.

      Appeasement NEVER works. Calling you enemies “our partners” as Putin has dribbled a million times grooms the other side to become ever bolder. We are now at a moment of absolutes- always a precursor to terrible events.

      • Boris Kazlov

        Erdogan are in Syria because Putin allow it in order to expel terrorist from east ghouta to Afrin canton!…now Russia dont let to take tel rifaat!…terrorist are defeated and neocons push Trump to a military strike!…but even CNN journalist have warned about serious consecuences for US military in case of attacks vs Damascus!

      • russ

        That’s a pretty bleak assessment. I’m not sure if you’re completely correct but to let Turkey in? I thought that was a really bad move from the beginning. The alt “news” crews have really played the phony coup narrative, they swallowed it hook line and sinker. If it was a real coup attempt it has to be the worst attempt in recorded history. Erdogan is one of the shiftiest players ever. If Russia is for real they better wake up soon about how treacherous we(US) are.

      • Steve Bell

        Garbage. Without Putin, Assad would’ve ended up like Gadhafi and Syria would become another Libya. Unlike trolls like you, Vlad and Xi know when and how to strike… and if Trump wants to double up and use nukes, so be it.

        • please dont be so harsh against this hasbara troll ‘starlight’.. he is just doing his daily job for few shekels doing what he do best , lying and spreading propaganda on behest of the greatest lying government in the world , posting from Tel aviv during working hours..

      • Sergey Tokarev

        I agree that appeasement doesn’t work, and that Putin was being too soft for too long, but you are wrong on Turkey in Northern Syria, wrong on the Saker. I also have a hunch that Russia won’t back off over East Ghouta. An imminent showdown, or hyenas will back off.

      • So Trump is a Zionist, Putin is a Zionist, Erdogan is a Zionist. Is there anyone that isn’t a Zionist in your Funhouse Universe?

        • you miss this hasbara ‘starlight’ objective , he want to potray everyone as zionist so the real zionist would be invisible ..

          after all , his own govt killed innocent unarmed citizen in Gaza yet the whole world media do not condemn such brutal warcrimes …

      When the Jews decided the genocide and make extinct the Philistines, they did so through manipulation.
      When the Jew’s decided the conquer Russia and instate a Jewish government, The Red Beast, and genocide 45,000,000 indigenous ethnic-Japetic Christians, they did so and the Russians were powerless to resist them.
      Then the Jew’s decided to make two World Wars against the indigenous central European tribal peoples, they did so and genocided ten’s of millions of them and leveled all of their cities.
      When the Jew’s decided to racially replace the indigenous inhabitants of Earths smallest micro continent (Europe) they have done so without consequence.
      Now that the Jew’s have decided it is time to wipe away all inhabitant of Yemen and Syria and soon Lebanon, they will be powerless to resist.
      And as Russia has picked the side of the Monotheist against the Zionist/Atheist, Jews will now commence revolution against in Russia, and wipe away the other half of the population, rest assured.
      Russia failed to heed the threat 200 years ago, and will now finish paying the price for opposing the coming Anti-Christ global polices.

      good article, thanks

      VT is heavily compromised by the baby rapers. I’m not saying that some of what they publish isn’t true. But I’d put it in the same category as Debka File, some truth mixed in with disinfo to get the disinfo out and to try to add credibility to lies. When I got kicked off of VT for truthing about the Jew baby rapers. Jim Dean wrote that 30% of VT staff and contributors are Jews.

    It’s clear we’re having another attack on Syria tonight. An other neocon move towards provoking Russia into WW3. Only tonight Russia taking down few dozen Tomahawks won’t be enough. US is escalating, Russia needs to respond in kind or fold and go home. Half assed response won’t cut it – it will only encourage the Evil Walrus and his Zio masters to go all the way. The minute US starts bombing Russia, Iran and his allies should start lobbing everything they have towards Israel…

      “Buk-M3
      The 9K317M ‘Buk-M3’ (9K37M3) is the latest production version, based on new hardware.[88][89] It has 36 target channels and features advanced electronic components. Specifications include a maximum target speed of 3,000 m/s (11,000 km/h; 6,700 mph; Mach 8.8), an altitude range of 0.015–35 km (49–114,829 ft) and a distance range of 2.5–70 km (1.6–43.5 mi). Extensive trials began in 2015,[90] with the first deliveries planned for 2016.[91][92] (2 into 2016).[93] The probability of hitting a target with one missile is: aircraft – 0.95; tactical ballistic missile – 0.7; cruise missile – 0.8. It offers increased efficiency against electronic countermeasures and manoeuvring targets.[94] They are more compact, increasing the TELAR’s carrying capacity to six missiles.[95] The missile’s new HE-fragmentation warhead can more easily penetrate armor.[96] The complex is highly mobile and designed against air, ground and sea targets (e.g. destroyers).[97]

      The missile reaches a speed of 1,550 m/s (5,600 km/h; 3,500 mph; Mach 4.6), and maneuvers by air rudders and reactive rudders.[98] The interval between shots is one second in any direction. Targeting is by commands or active homing, or in combination. Thermal radar works on any target at any time in any weather. Russian sources claim the system can destroy the MGM-140 ATACMS, though this has never been actually attempted.[99][100]

      Radar, guidance and target detection operates at a range of ±60° 9S36. A target at an altitude of 7–10 m can be detected at a distance of up to 35 km, targets like the AGM-158A “JASSM” at an altitude of 20 m, and RCS over 0.1 m² at a distance of 17–18 km.[101] The radar sees targets at an altitude of 5 meters and in practical shooting, the system demonstrated its ability to destroy anti-ship missiles flying at that altitude.”

  • RichardD

    The problem for the Jew baby rapers and their flunkies is that unlike other regional air defense systems that they’ve taken down in places like Iraq, Libya and Yemen. The one in Syria is super power state of the art, or close to it. What that means is that in addition to being able to take down missiles, planes and projectiles. The people running it know before the launches occur where the launchers are. With the possible exception of some subs and hidden locations. Which are revealed once they launch missiles.

    Once a launch does occur. The people running the integrated air defense system don’t even have to wait for the munitions to arrive before they start taking out the launchers. Which unlike regional militarys, the Syrian government coalition is not only capable of doing. But is already targeting the launchers for elimination even before any launch occurs. Because they are constantly tracking them and already know where most of them are.

    I don’t want to see a super power dust up in Syria, and hope that it’s avoided. But if it does occur. I doubt that it’s going to stop the Syrian government coalition form continuing to eradicate the Jew world order terrorists in Syria that are in the process of being eliminated. And what ever the response is, it will make the aggressors think twice before they continue any further hostilities.

        • Ricky Miller

          Russia’s response will not likely include sinking ships, unless it’s from Nuclear Submarines sneaking toward Gibraltar from Northern Fleet anchorage. Likely response 1) shoot down as many cruise missiles as possible. 2) Attack any manned aircraft intruding into de facto Syrian airspace and 3) Use Iskander missiles and SU-34’s to destroy American Patriot Batteries in Jordan and strike the U.S./British base in At Tanf. Syrian Mig-29’s need to get up and strike too. It is their country.

          • Sergey Tokarev

            General Gerasimov said that in case of a salvo on Damascus we will sink their ships, so I would put money on that. Not only intercepting missiles but also sinking NATO ships that launched those missiles.

          • Ricky Miller

            My read on what he said was the missiles and the carriers that launch them. I believe he meant aircraft while others hear carriers and assume ships. I’m not sure Russia has enough firepower on station to overwhelm the point defenses of groupings of destroyers. Unless one of the Anteys have moved South, a fair chance and we wouldn’t know. Although Russia’s leadership have had several weeks to move things around a bit since Gerasimov’s warning.

          • Sergey Tokarev

            I don’t know Russia’s firepower in the region. It is more known about NATO firepower, from 400 to 1000+ missiles, around two dozens frigates and destroyers. Possibly they can overwhelm our air defense. We might see it in a few days or even hours.

    • marcusbond

      I think the U.K. France just want to handcuff Trump, as they are concerned he has softened the traditional US position against Russia, and hardened it against China. They need to reverse that. They also want to demonise Putin in their citizens minds a bit more. Eventually they are going to have to move against RT, and that remains difficult whilst so many people like Putin’s straight talking style. I would reckon Trump will strike harder than last time, but Russia will be prewarned so catastrophic effects can be minimised. I think Putin knows he can’t push Trump into a corner with no where to go, so they’ll be willing to accept *some* damage. Putin’s best bet is to finish up in Syria ASAP.

  • temujin1970

    • Icarus Tanović

    • Nuno Cardoso da Silva

      Russia must risk giving a very strong answer to any American attack, or it will lose all credibility. And the longer Russia delays its answer, the more violent it will have to be, when it comes. The correct answer will be the sinking of any of the US frigates launching cruise missiles against Syria. And if Russia’s EM weapons are as good as people think, they should be used to put any attacking US aircraft out of commission.

  • Icarus Tanović

    Bullshito American faggot pussy grabber talk to talk, we’ve already heard so many times.

  • Baudouin Jérusalem
  • RichardD

    It should be remembered that some of the shorter range systems like BUK, Pantsir and Verba are all integrated into the theater radar and satcom sytems. Their individual tracking and fire control systems are augmented by the theater system. So they have a heads up from incoming launch until the munitions approach their position range. And can be on target long before that. NATO and it’s tag alongs have never faced this before. And when they have faced fractional capabilities of this, they’ve had trouble with it.

    • Ricky Miller

      Yes, so true. But there is a geography problem. Russia’s obvious defenses are aligned toward the Coast and the bulk of the Cruise Missiles this time are likely to approach from the South by SW. That’s a long way from the networked strong points even granting the radar and orbital coverage Russia still has to have the shorter ranged BUK and Pantsir systems in the right places to put missiles onto targeted missiles. Hopefully Russian Officers have put the past few weeks to good use RE: defending Damascus.

      • RichardD

        Where do you think that the incoming missiles would be launched from?

        • Ricky Miller

          Red Sea and Persian Gulf. I expect the U.S. to try and flank the Russian S300 strong point at Tartus by flying cruise missiles over Jordan and Iraq

    • Harold Smith

      You said: “It looks like Trump is attempting to assert his presidential authority over foreign policy issues. I hope that he is able to facilitate a withdrawal from Syria, and Afghanistan as well.”

      He was scamming us again. And I told you that he’s a liar. I told you that nothing he says can be taken at face value. I told you so. You should admit that you were wrong about Trump.

      • RichardD

        I’ve said repeatedly that he’s made contradictory statements and that both have to considered.

        • Harold Smith

          Should I quote the rest of your nonsensical Trump apologia here? Why not just admit that you were wrong?

          • RichardD

            Wrong about what?

          • Harold Smith

            You’re a liar, just like your hero, Orange Clown.

            “Two words:

            America First

            He means it, and he’s putting it in place.”

          • RichardD

            What am I lying about?

            Do a search for America First implementation and read up on it.

          • Harold Smith

            Now you’re going to imply that you can’t read?

          • RichardD

            You didn’t answer the question.

          • Harold Smith

            Okay, here it is again. Speaking about Trump, you said:
            “Two words:

            America First

            He means it, and he’s putting it in place.”

            And you lied, because Trump obviously does not put America first. He puts the jewish-supremacist agenda first. America must be sacrificed for his jew masters. That makes you a liar. Accept it.

          • RichardD

            Some has been put in place, some remains to be put in place. That doesn’t make me a liar. That makes you a false accuser.

          • Harold Smith

            The “some” that has been “put in place” (if it really has) was obviously only a ruse to fool people like you, who need and want to be fooled.

          • RichardD

            You can search Trump America First implementation and judge for yourself what has and hasn’t been put in place. Any knowledgeable objective observer knows that not only has Trump accomplished quite a bit, but that he’s done it in the face of unprecedented resistance from the Jew world order swamp, lying Jew media, etc..

          • Harold Smith

            You also said “he means it”, and that is obviously not correct, because if he meant it, he wouldn’t be willing to risk a nuclear war with Russia if he intended to put America first. So you were fooled. Why not just admit you were wrong?

          • RichardD

            If he’s implemented as much as he has, in the face of the resistance that he’s faced, he obviously means it.

          • Harold Smith

            No it doesn’t. First, you don’t know what “resistance”, if any, he faced because much of what happens is a ruse. Second how can you possibly say “he means it” when he’s obviously willing to risk the destruction of America for the sake of the jewish agenda in the Mideast? he obviously doesn’t mean it. You’re just being contrary. You really just can’t admit that you were fooled? Have you ever been wrong about anything in your life, or no?

          • RichardD

            Any rational observer can see that he’s faced massive resistance. If you think that it’s all a ruse, then prove it. You won’t be able to, so you’re probably not going to even try. So why don’t you insult everyone’s intelligence with another stupid nonsensical comment, or better yet, just go away and stop making a fool of yourself?

          • Harold Smith

            You can’t do simple common sense reasoning? You’re the one making a fool out of yourself, Rich. How can you possibly say “he means it” , i.e., he really puts America first, when he is flirting with nuclear war?
            He obviously doesn’t mean it. If I had two little kids and I strapped them in the back seat of my car and then I drove around town shooting at cops, would the county dept. of children and youth services agree with me when I said “I put my kids first”? No, of course they wouldn’t.
            So why don’t you just admit that you were wrong, and that Trump fooled you, and stop making an ass out of yourself?

          • RichardD

            Just as I predicted:

            “Any rational observer can see that he’s faced massive resistance. If you think that it’s all a ruse, then prove it. You won’t be able to, so you’re probably not going to even try. So why don’t you insult everyone’s intelligence with another stupid nonsensical comment, or better yet, just go away and stop making a fool of yourself?”

          • Harold Smith

            You’re making a ridiculous bare assertion that goes against common sense. Therefore, it seems you don’t have much intelligence for me to “insult.” Do you really believe your own drivel, or are you just being contrary?

          • RichardD

            “Any rational observer can see that he’s faced massive resistance. If you think that it’s all a ruse, then prove it. You won’t be able to, so you’re probably not going to even try.

          • Harold Smith

            You said: “It looks like Trump is attempting to assert his presidential authority over foreign policy issues. I hope that he is able to facilitate a withdrawal from Syria, and Afghanistan as well.”

            All of a sudden you can’t read?

          • RichardD

            That’s what it looked like.

          • Harold Smith

            So you were fooled?

          • RichardD

            No, that’s what it looked like.

          • Harold Smith

            So Trump fooled you?

        • Harold Smith

          So you admit you were fooled?

    • Harold Smith

      You said:

      “Two words:

      America First

      He means it, and he’s putting it in place.”

      So, flirting with planetary extinction for the sake of the jewish-supremacist agenda is putting “America first”?

      You should admit that Trump fooled you.

      • RichardD

        What he says and what he does aren’t always the same thing. A lot of America First has been put in place in the face of massive resistance and lot remains unfulfilled.

    Couldn’t the RF & allies embrace and leverage the blatant militant chemo-plot, and present it as the new main reason for their continuing and increasing presence & involvement in the region?
    “Extremists have gained technology and know-how to deploy banned chemo-weapons, which could be smuggled across the globe. It is the duty of every civilized nation, especially every cosigner to opcw, to stop and bring to justice the extremists who abused banned chemos as well as those actors who had armed them!”

    There may be foreign intel/SF operatives stuck in Douma, whose capture by the SAA could cause massive reverberations and consequences. There is also the issue of the alleged $900 million Jaish Islam is trying to extract out of Douma with them. This hysteria may be aimed at pressuring RF and Damascus to allow the operatives & militants to, with all their cash. Only, what insurance does Damascus have that it won’t get hit the moment JI is safely evacuated?

    Now Russia and Syria can happily strike back, if the US. Owing to the fact they have invaded a sovereign nation, based on unverified, false accounts. If that is not an act of war, then what is, if it was the US.

    • Hewal Neutralizer

      This is like 913921381TH times US is doing that. Are you sure Russia wants to strike back?

      • AM Hants

        They have said so, and do not waste words, or make idle threats. They follow through, when they give their word.

        Moscow calls ‘chemical attack’ in Douma ‘fake news,’ warns against Syrian intervention… Reports of an alleged gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma are ‘fake news’ aimed at justifying potential strikes against Syria, Moscow said. It warned of “dire consequences” in the event of any military interference…. https://www.rt.com/news/423524-douma-chemical-attack-fake-moscow/

        • RichardD

          There are a lot of reports that the US is denying involvement.

          • AM Hants

            The Stte Department, has said they were aware, but, were not commenting. Now they are ‘aware’ and in denial mode. Perhaps they have just been informed they have committed a war crime, if it was them?

          • Ricky Miller

            They do not care about committing war crimes. Here in the USA everything we do is accepted in the narrative of we’re the good guys and fighting villains, etc. Violating treaties I promise you they boldly care not one itty bit.

          • AM Hants

            We are the same in the UK, and they are now taking foreign nationals hostage. Julia Skripal, who was poisoned, with her father, visiting him on a Russian tourist visa. No facts, no evidence and she is allowed no Consular help.

          • AM Hants

            Backtracking as they originally said they were aware and refused to deny or claim involvement. Whoever did it, there will be docemented radar confirmation.

          • RichardD

            It should be sorted out by Monday.

          • AM Hants

            God help us, but, the boil needs lancing.

        • Ricky Miller

          I hope Russia follows through, as dangerous as that is for so many people, mainly everyone. If they don’t it just gets more dangerous as the American leadership becomes more emboldened and hysterical. A punch back of limited scope might change the world, for good.

          • AM Hants

            Completly with you on that.

    • RichardD

      From the article that you linked to:

      “An informed source told Sputnik on Monday that the Syrian Air Defense Force shot down the missiles. “The Syrian Air Defense Force has destroyed a few missiles, which attacked the T-4 air base. The missiles fell in the vicinity of the airfield,” the source said. …

      the source said that there were no casualties as a result of a missile strike, and the airbase did not suffer any material damage.”

      • PZIVJ

        Latest report is that eight where shot down, and three hit the base.

        • RichardD

          Do you have a link?

          • Ricky Miller

            ANNA news is reporting 12 confirmed, thirty wounded. ANNA military analysts list the most likely suspect as Israeli strike aimed at Iranian assets

          • RichardD

            Do you have a link.

          • Ricky Miller

            OK, you’ll laugh but my tech skills are limited. The URL at the top of the ANNA page, which is an Abkhaz news site is: anna-news.info anna-news.info/atakovana-aviabaza-t4-tifor/
            So, enable your translator but be prepared that Abkhaz sentence structure translates rather clumsily into English. You have to read carefully and almost reconstruct the translation mentally

          • RichardD

            I found it:

            “According to Syrian sources, 12 SAA soldiers were killed and 30 wounded, it is also alleged that eight missiles were shot down by air defense.”

            Syrian sources could be anybody. There should be more information Monday confirming or denying that.

      • AM Hants

        Read that article, and was hoping that was the accurate one. It was an act of war on a sovereign nation.

        • Ricky Miller

          Yes, and firmly places the United Nations right alongside the League of Nations in effectiveness at preventing powerful states from assaulting and co-opting smaller and weaker ones. I’d throw a copy of that worthless UN Charter straight into the center of the Security Council rotunda, if I were a Syrian representative to the United “let’s assault anyone the USA wants to” Nations.

    • Ricky Miller

      This is some kind of ruse or probe attack, either U.S. French or Israeli. It’s too small and seems to be in large part intercepted. Not the main event. Russia’s defenses are not reported as engaged. We’ll see

      • RichardD

        Anything coming into Syria is tracked by Russia. The tracking can then be used by Syrian equipment to respond. The Syrians have 50 Pantsir units and T4 is their largest air base, so some of them are there. And were probably involved.

      • AM Hants

        I wonder how many missiles were launched? Heard the Syrian system managed to take 8 down. Sad, they have not got a carpet umbrella, with no weak spots. Good luck Syria, RIP to those that did not survive, and a straightforward recovery, to the victims.

        • Ricky Miller

          Hopefully, no one has been hurt. It’s possible. Airbases are big places and maybe all is well. I agree with your earlier post, btw. Time to hit back. Even if it’s not the Americans, it is. They are responsible for the whole mess, including arming Jihadis and there are quite a few places around Syria where limited numbers of SOF would be vulnerable to a missile attack. Absorbing attacks without counterstrikes only invites more aggression.

          • AM Hants

            There is another article, another source saying minimal damage and no fatalities. Hoping that one is the accurate one.

      • AM Hants

        We, over in the UK, also have an airbase in Cyprus, which is in the med and not far from Syria.

        • Ricky Miller

          Right but would the Cypriots agree to an offensive strike on Syria? Wouldn’t the UK need permission from Nicosia before setting out?

          • AM Hants

            No, when Turkey invaded, the UK were guarantors, and the bases are on what is classed as UK territory, subject to UK law, although in Cyprus.

          • Ricky Miller

            Sounds like a terrible deal. What do the Cypriots get out of it? Can’t be help with the Turks because 1974 was a long time ago and they are still there.

          • AM Hants

            If you go back to the history, it was Operation Gladio, as Cyprus is of value.

            Here is a good article, which explains part of it.

          Could also be sub launched, I think UK and France also have this capability?

  • No need for Russia and USA to fight. The experts here in SF’s comment section have already war gamed all possible scenarios and outcomes! :D

    • PZIVJ

      But that was before France got involved.
      Now there are other things to consider, what happens when the French retreat, etc. :)

      • With SAA, Russia, ISIS, TSK, Qaida, FSA and SDF, how will the French know who to surrender to?

        • dontlietome

          ……………….to the Germans of course ! ( Silly question !)

  • RichardD

    “The source of the attack is still being determined; however, it is very likely an Israeli strike.

    Israel has attacked the T-4 area in the past, as it has a large presence of Hezbollah and Iranian military personnel.”

  • as

    AMN reported that T 4 airbase were hit by possible cruise missile.
    Another report of several fighter jet crossing into Syria from Lebanon airspace.

    • Brad Isherwood

      Syria has several point defence systems….
      Several are capable to get on Cruise Missiles.
      Next is GPS jammers and area Jamming.
      We know Russia has the Area Jamming system to Crush! …cruise missile attack.

      On Technical**……Russian Radar can detect IAF jets taking off….
      This means Syria has many minutes warning of IAF vector.
      Syria’s Radar may not have this reach as Russia does.

      Israel’s repeated attacks for 6 years…
      Unless Russia is not passing the telemetry to Syrian Airdefence.
      There should be no damned sudden surprise @!

      Reports on this latest attack still ???
      Would be awesome Russian Radar passed the IAF vectors and standoff launch to
      Syrian Air defence.
      If the Attack is from IAF…..Putin can’t be silent anymore.
      That’s gotta stop.

      Interestimg BIGGOOO ruskie air defense systems and foreign planes walksi on syrian sky. :-OOO woooowww!!!

  • RichardD

    If the reports of derbies from the missile shot downs landing in the vicinity of the T4 air base are true. They were probably taking those ones down with AAA.

    • RichardD

      It’s less than 100 miles from Lebanon to the T4 air base near Palmyra. Even sub sonic missiles would cross that distance in less than 10 minutes. It looks like another baby raper violation of Lebanese airspace to carry out a hit and run.

  • mksharma62

    Putin had made a grave tactical mistake. Long back, some 3-4 weeks back, I warned that escalation by US forces will take place and suggested that before that Russian and Syrian forces move very quickly and totally liberate the Eastern Ghouta rebel centre near Damascus – no government can tolerate a rebel base near or in its capital. Rest of the border regions could be looked after later. I think the Khurdish fighters, influenced by the US, made a big mistake in Afrin (or Arfin?) instead of handing it over to Syrian forces as suggested by Russians when leaving, and now are reaping bitter harvest at the hands of Turkish oppressive invaders. Let not similar mistakes be committed in future.

  • mksharma62

    Trump has been blackmailed and become a puppet in the hands of the Neocon ministers and belligerent military security complex – that way he is more dangerous than Obama, who perhaps had some better freedom and initiative of his own than Trump.

    Putin is a total wuss. He keeps getting kicked by the US but continues to talk about wanting normal relations. Expect nothing from this man who, frankly, lacks personality and does not look too sharp. The world is in a heap of trouble, with WW3 around the corner.

    The puppeteers reside in Israel with surrogates in the US…

  • Joe

    US does not care if it’s a hoax
    They will attack to revenge the hundreds of their special forces destroyed in East Ghouta

    Lets see if Russia is ready to sink a US carrier
    as they had threatened.

  • william serrahn

    There is the faction in the Pentagon who thinks that Putin can be defanged in Syria with a 3 day battle between the US OIR jet jockeys and carrier based aircraft and Russia’s small contingent of air superiority fighters with emphasis on knocking out the bulk of the Russian air defense systems in the initial attacks. It is hoped that this battle can be contained in Syria and Putin won’t dare to escalate.

    A successful demonstration of U.S. air supremacy over the Russians in Syria would spoil Putin’s success there and forever blunt any future military adventures beyond Russia’s borders that he might contemplate – at least that’s the hope.

    At this late stage of the war, with the Syrians, Russians, and Iranians nearly in full control in the west, outside of Idlib, would the U.S. contemplate an all out attack? Seems hard to believe but perhaps Trump is dumb enough to be persuaded that he can refocus the Western press from his other troubles and demonstrate once and for all that he is no friend of Putin.
