S-400 and Pantsir Systems Are Preparing For A Great Test In Syria - Russian Media

Sputnik/ Dmitriy Vinogradov

At present, Syria has become a great theater scene. A colossal military performance could be played by Russian and American arms. Who will be the winner: American Tomohawsks or Russian S-400 and Pantsir-S1 air defense systems?

The Russian newspaper Vzglyad furnished opinion over a possible US-Russian confrontation in Syria referring to the officials allegedly affiliated to the Russian Ministry of Defense.

The official is sure that it is Russian opportunity to “show everything it possess and is able to do”.

The officials stated that the general scenario is clear:

“The two destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean will launch the first set of cruise missile and then the USA will launch their “smart” missiles”.

“The aim is clear: the defensive side must disburse its ammunition allowance of missiles. Afterwards, the US considers to “fire with impunity” from the other warships headed with the air carrier “Truman”.

“It is absolutely transparent, that the strike will be. We have time to prepare the defeat and to reorganize our work under the circumstances”, concluded the official.

According to the article, it is important to know what time will it take the adversary to contract. As the source estimates, Russia “has imposed enough of different facilities of the air defense”. Thus, cruise missiles are not the problem for this modern Protection Against Aircraft (PAA).

However, the official emphasized the US immensity, which Russia has to stand against.

“If we take in that the strike will be more powerful than it was at the Shayrat Airbase (60 missiles were launched), so it will be about 100 missiles”, supposed the expert of the Strategy analysis and Technology Center Vasiliy Kashin.

“Besides the US could block Syrian ports to nip military deliveries”, he added.

The referred officials remarked that the “upcoming”  US strike on Syria will be a decisive exam for the Russian forces.

The newspaper’s sources believe that Russian remains strong and sure about its military capabilities regardless and is ready to take counter measrues to possible US military actions.

    The US should be impressed by Russian serenity….

    • russ

      Surely you’re joking. We are Pavlovian school products. We drool on command. We react with conditioned responses and those are that Russia is evil and very aggressive with their 3 forward deployed military bases. We prove our benevolent nature with our 900+ bases out of country.

      US, UK and France regularly slapping Muslim rulers on their faces but they are so moron that they don’t feel it. Obama several times called to Zardari of Pakistan that I will attack Pakistan but then they quickly ran to Putin for defence. Recently PM of Pakistan has visited US where he has been searched at airport like an ordinary visitor.

      • Starlight

        See the zionist troll operate again. Which wahhabi leaders has the US, UK and France slapped, troll? Britain’s ABSOLUTE support of Pakistan means Pakistan is the ONLY muslim nation with nukes, troll.

        The Saudis have secure fortress palaces in the UK, USA and France for their sexual depravities, Troll, where the wahhabi sex criminals are untouchable.

        Ordinary muslims die like flies, but their leaders have never been more feted- yet this troll states otherwise.

    • Starlight

      The ONLY thing that impressed Trump is how perfectly the MI6 false flag has worked- far better than even 911. Britain is now recruiting the support of an astonishing number of nations for the coming invasion of Syria.

  • Robert

    Why not to allow all these missiles to pass freely, and save air defence resources for next phase. Most important is to be be prepared to shoot down enemy planes. Amount of cruise missiles is limited, and obviously downed planes will be better PR.

    • François

      I will applause every sunk ship and downed aircraft. But how many will it be?
      I’m planning to open a online betting site, huge money at the US/NATO expense

      • There are a lot of options to bet on: 1. How many sunk ships? 2. How many permanently frozen ships (Khibiny in attack mode)? 3. How many downed aircraft? 4. How many missiles hit targets? 5. How many submarines destroyed? I bet: 1 – 0; 2 – 4; 3 – 2; 4 – 14: 5 – 1. Khibiny consists of a small torpedo-shaped wingtip pod that covers the aircraft with radio-electronic protective hood once a missile attack has been detected. The protective hood prevents the missile from reaching the target and makes it deviate from the course.

        • James Willy

          The first thing we should bet on is this question.
          Is Putin going to fight back this time. Yes or No?
          I bet NO. 10 bucks.

          • I will take you up on that and raise you $10.00.

          • James Willy

            So do you agree with me or are you betting against me? Betting is new to me and I aint fimiliar with the terms.

          • No. If I bet you then we are on opposite sides. If I take you up on bet it means I accept the challenge on the other side. Raise you $10 is something you have to accept as it puts it up to $20.

          • James Willy

            ok I raise you another 20 and say Putin refuses to fight back when attacked.

      • James Willy

        Probably tons of zombies will be betting on yankeestan. Please post a link to your site. I will be making loads of cash betting on Putin. That is if he will actually fight back. If he refuses like he always does how are we gonna make any money from the bets?

    • FlorianGeyer

      And sink the US carriers etc.

      • François

        As French, I simply “ain’t no cure” if Russia sink French ships. I’m not willing to give my support to Zionists servants. A word to the wise, however.

        • You can call me Al

          By the time you lot reach Cyprus, you will have about turned and raised the white flag.

          • François

            France lost some wars but won many others in 1300 years history.
            Other countries, such as the US did not won any, except against innocent Indians civilians and during WW2 thanks to the Russian and the nuclear bomb.
            What matters is individual guts, not the country of origin.

          • You can call me Al

            OK, I shall bow to that one as you are correct.

            As a Brit, if you are hitting the Yanks, I shall fully support you.

            Apologies for my misunderstanding.

          • James Willy

            Anyone hitting the Yanks, I shall fully support you. Just hope Putin finally keeps his word and sinks all these things. He promised he will. How many times now??

          • Tudor Miron

            I have to agree that France won more wars than US. Also unlike US they also know what means war on their soil. Actually Frence often tryed to restore their soveregnity after WWII but if De Gaulle would see the current state of France he would be ashamed.

        • FlorianGeyer

          As a Briton, I do not want to see British service personnel harmed due to the criminal adventures of out government.

          However at the Nuremburg trials after WW2 it was established in law that following orders to commit a criminal act in war is NOT a defence.

          It is time for the service personnel of the UK to refuse to be party to any illegal actions toward Syria. The UK military owes allegiance to the British Public and not a corrupted government in the pockets of foreign powers.

          The Syrian people have suffered enough from the illegal support of internationally recognised Terrorist Gangs by the US Coalition of Terror..

          • skinner15

            I do not want to see a minority government to bring about WW3 because of an unpopular PM deciding a war might make her PM for a long time.

          • FlorianGeyer

            I agree.

          • Tudor Miron

            Well said. But Nurenburg is faraway and commanders and military police is here and now.

        • Bob

          Macron’s bluster is farcical – the French naval presence is entirely predicated on being in the safe shadow of US naval vessels.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            France is a historic surrender monkey. A lot of noise and junk weapons.

          • Java Ape Timelord

            Last successful invasion of England was by the people of Normandy and France.
            William the Bastard or Conqueror was French. I do not remember These French surrendering.

    • Bob

      NATO previously state they would target major SAA operations headquarters, installations and depots, and even the Presidential palace. Letting Tomahawk missiles through would undo a lot of what Russia has been spending resources on and updating since 2015.

    • skinner15

      Because the US would claim victory and keep the aircraft back.

      The only answer to a mass US missile attack, will be to wipe out the destroyers and aircraft carriers. The US taxpayers will just send a thousand more missiles next week if Russia knocked down the first waves.

      Then we will see if the MIC and their puppet “politicians” are prepared to destroy itself and the world with it.

    • Starlight

      Don’t worry, Robert, the action has been upgraded to an INVASION, so Putin is in luck- most of his FOOTBALL HOOLIGAN supporters, like those that comment here, will APPLAUDE him when he runs away from Syria. They’ll all say, given the circumstances, he had no choice.

    • Tudor Miron

      First salvos will always target air defense. Planes would not move in untill the threat is reduced to minimal. Don’t think that yank pilots are brave worriors. You would not see them do things Russian Su-25s did in 080808 event. If there are enough mobile sams – those should be used and moved rapidly to new positions.

  • Vince Dhimos

    Dear Donald: Why not just take it to the nuclear level now?

    • 1691

      Yes, dear Donald, nuke israhell now!

      • neil barron

        No Donald nuke every anti Israel and anti semite on this site and others of this Ilk.

        • 1691

          We are all over the world. He won’t have enough time to do it.

          • neil barron

            It won’t matter as long as your the first one of many.

          There’s no such antisemit things, it is just normal to hate evil. (quote from readers on RT comments section – and i agree wholeheartedly).

            Don’t need you to defend them have Donald nuke em.

          • Tudor Miron

            You must be exeptional, are you?

    • Starlight

      The coming invasion of Syria WILL use nukes, just as Tony Blair nuked the concentration of Saddam’s Republican Guard during his invasion of Iraq. It’s just the average thickie knows nothing about the current state of ‘battlefield’ nukes.

  • Redadmiral

    With Trump flip flopping ad nauseam, we have to look at the Yanki build up to see what is probable.

    • Starlight

      I love how the thickies always take comfort from the nonsense spewed at them in the JEWISH controlled press.

      “oh”, dribble dribble, “Trump’s a flip floper”, knuckle drag knuckle drag, “we have nothing to worry about”, grunt, dribble.

      Meanwhile the british MI6 false flag has worked so perfectly, Britain is currently building a massive coalition to invade Syria, which is why Trump is now smirkingly talking about a ‘delay’.

      • Redadmiral

        You are such an obvious troll it took little time to identify you as such. The contradicting drivel you churn out is designed to obfuscate the specific issue at hand. Instead of addressing the matter in question, you attack me. You remind me of a one legged man in an arse kicking competition, you are all over the place. If your masters in Tel Aviv give you a shekel per blog, ’tis money well spent — in Dizengoff I dare say.

  • Superfly

    Russia and Iran mean business this time. The chump Trump has chickened out as expected.

    • russ

      You give the sock puppet too much credit. The puppeteer is feeling threatened, that is the only thing stopping this.

      • Starlight

        God, you thickie- the action has been upgraded to a full-on invasion thanks to just how well the MI6 false flag evidence is playing with the leaders of most of the major nations of the Earth- and THAT is why the ‘delay’.

        • russ

          Just cause I’m an American I don’t see any reason to call me thickie… BTW FF hoaxes have a shelf life and this ones’ is about up. Really it was up when my ZOG couldn’t keep their proxies propped up in Dhouma long enough to “react”.

    • Rob

      Without Israel, ISIS, Al-Qaeda and PKK terrorists bustards this world will be a better place for living.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Zionism is a curse for humanity. Even Putin is tired of Zionist evil and scolded the scum Nutter Yahoo after T-4 raid and gave him a strong warning.

        • Agha Olagh

          Don’t be fooled. Much still indicates he is under Zionist pressure, for instance his lack of actions towards the Kurds.

          • You can call me Al

            Lack of actions ?. Nonsense.

          • Rob

            PKK and SDF areas will be liberated at once both in Syria and Iraq.

        • Rob

          Yes yesterday Putin called Netanyahu that you know that Syria is my ally and if this time you attack Syria then I will f*ck you.

          • Wanklord

            Russia’s strategy in Syria is already proving to be a total failure since all Assad forces, IRGC, Russian mercenaries and Hezbollah are now forced to seek shelter (while abandoning their current positions) due to the impending US/NATO attack.

            The US and the west military campaign in Syria is the one that is total failure, tell me how long the US has been bombing the so called terrorists in Syria?

          • Ewan

            Yeah sure, thats why the US “warned” Russia beforehand. This was a PR stunt to save face. The US is a limp dick in Syria. Targetting 100 missiles for CNN and BBC to show they still mean business while warning the russians ahead of time.

            The only country pissing in their pants was Israel – not knowing if the Iranians would use this barrage as an excuse to retaliate for last week’s attack on T4

            Israel has reason to be scared. People r not forgetting all the Imprisoned Palestinian people in that open air prison called Gaza…

        ABSOLUTELY!!!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      It is great to see Russia and Iran coordinating a joint defence strategy.

      • Sakaramanga

        and China…as it seems.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          China is not as bold as Russia and Iran but definitely wants the Americunt thugs to get a bloody nose. Russia has more support in the world than it realizes. Even Germany is opting out of US morons warmongering.

          • Sakaramanga

            Agreed. +China has a good acceleration (economics) and doesn’t want to spoil it but they know US needs to be restrained sometime. Problem is US controls US$ and Russia/China can’t do much about it. Those who tried (Hariri-Lebanon, Saddam-Iraq, Qaddafi-Libya) were short-lived. US/Western neocolonialism geopolitics is f*cking the World up. Poor people where they wage wars.

          Reconstruction will probably be financed by Han, certainly the next step.

        • Starlight

          China was Serbia’s ONLY ally when the cowardly Russians withdrew support for Serbia during Blair’s Kosovo War. Blair actually bombed the Chinese embassy and murdered many chinese citizens as a result. Google it. China has the balls that Putin most cetainly lacks- tho China will not actively participate in this conflict.

          • ZP

            Its the Americans who bombed Chinese embassy and they justified it saying they used outdated Maps (it was no apology, they just wanted to tell the Chinese “yes we did it, what are you gonna do about it?”). China was week at the time and promised to respond in the time and place of its choosing

          • CyricRenner

            What did China do as Serbia’s ally exactly? Refuse to sell occupying NATO troops anymore egg-rolls?

          • Sakaramanga

            Interesting, I will google it, thanks.

            Altho I agree with you completely, I also tend to think that during Kosovo war (1998-1999) where the West used Islamic psychopats and mercenaries like Al Qaeda_ISIS etc today, it was still weak times for Russia on post USSR period. It was before Putin has made Russia a Nation again. That might have something to do with it. Furthermore, at that time Russia was not politically determined to protect its interests against NATO at all costs. To me Putin’s essential Sochi speech (Valdai) was the decleration of such decision, the turning point. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valdai_speech_of_Vladimir_Putin

      • Starlight

        Yeah, Russia RUNS and Iran is left holding the baby. What a brilliant ‘strategy’

          Good practice for Iran – ultimately, it will be Iran that confronts Israel. The real winner is Russia and Iran – being given sufficient warning to fine-tune old Pantsir system and S200 systems for the Syrians and Hizbollah – thats an opportunity whose value cannot be understated

          • Archie Caldwell

            Israel cannot survive an attack from Russia and Iran.

        Maybe this time they will engage yanky. Now that would really be really really shocking.

    • Starlight

      Russia is going to do NOTHING. The ‘wargames’ Russia is engaging in at the moment, while Britain finishes recruiting the coalition of world nations that are going to assist in the invasion of Syria, are for ‘pride’ alone- to impress the dribblers. Once the invasion force moves into place, Putin wll announce the evacuation of all russian forces.

    • Russian stuff always works will. The American stuff is always open to question. Russian ability to interfere in surprising ways can help make sure there are misfires.

  • Joe Doe

    The scenario presented by officials is wrong. Americans most likely will attack Syria from IRAQ, Jordan and Israel/Lebanon, as its obvious that the cost is well defended. In addition Russia has no ball$ to fire back or shut down UK or France air planes. Russia failed before, will fail now

    • skinner15

      Iraq have already given the Russians permission to overfly their airspace with missiles and aircraft, so I doubt that the US will be able to gather the aircraft and munitions safely in Iraq.

      Israel used Lebanese airspace to launch their last attack on Syria, as the SAM coverage of Russian missiles extend to Egypt, so the Israelis will not be watching their attacking fleet being shot down over their own bases. The Syrians and Russians have since stated that Lebanese airspace now falls into their target range.

      As for Russian ball§, only a complete a§§hole would question that. 90% of German WW2 dead were in the Soviet Union, the other 10% were all the Western Allies could muster after 4 years of sheltering on USS Britain.

    • Such shit!

          • paul ( original )

            I am sure Russia wants to avoid WW3. However, if that becomes their

            being prepared to fight WW3 that it can be avoided. A bit of a

            don’t think western politicians have any capacity to think wisely as
            they are inebriated with their own hubris. They may need to be
            confronted by the application of force and the threat of danger to
            themselves before they will understand that the world does not belong
            to them. This may not be WW3 but some way along that lines is what I
            fear will be needed. Also remember for many people in the world WW3
            is already here. When people say this they are usually only thinking
            of a war that impacts western population.

            Also remember that our politician would gladly see our lives squandered so
            they could revel in the glory of are sacrifice.

            We would not attack first. But we will hit back hard. “Весь мир в труху”(с) if there’s danger to our existance.

          defeating regime-change terrorists in Syria is relevant.

      • whatsmolly

        It’s not as radical as you think, they can see where the missles are headed shortly after launch and if they are headed close to Russian forces it’s actually the clear option because it stops salvo from being launched. It’s going to greatly depend in the scale of the attack. If it’s a farce like the last attack then it won’t be broad enough to endanger Russian forces but also won’t do much damage to syria. If it broad enough to be meaningful then Russian forces will be endangered and hitting the ships is a better option than trying to shoot down the missles after launch . If they have the stated intention of doing damage and actually commit to it, it’s the clear option to hit the ships .

        • christianblood

          I would say, first shoot down the missiles but if they keep them coming, then may be target the ships. It is very a tricky and a dangerous situation and the commanders on the ground don’t have the luxury and time to think these things through.

          • John Whitehot

            ecm could be the right answer – knock the missiles out of the sky with no damage for everyone, and show the US that their tactics don’t work.

            of course this is putative, as we know nothing on real ecm abilities.

            if most of the 60 tomahawks launched last year lost their way though, there must be some reason.

          • Kell McBanned

            Id laugh if they hacked them and made them hit targets in Israel.

          • :-)

          • Tudor Miron

            Thing is that it is impossible for any party (be it Russia or US) to stop all missiles if enough are lounched. At one point AD is saturated. One must disrupt incoming salvos. I would also prefer that US shoots and all the missiles get intersepted – no one is seriously hurt and bully knows he’s gun is not working. That would buy more time (till bully comes up with new or more guns). It is not possible unfortunately. Things may escalate out of politicians control into strict military procedures control very rapidly and “experienced” US commander in chief may not even realise that very soon he becomes a “passenger” merely witnessing “what the f$ck have I done”
            But. In this case I say that if there’s meaningful attack from US side (not some forgotten shithole in the middle of nowhere) than we have to respond with real force. Let them have it. We’re ready.

          • John Whitehot

            “Thing is that it is impossible for any party (be it Russia or US) to stop all missiles if enough are lounched”

            ECMs aren’t saturated. They are electromagnetic means working in a given area, affecting whatever enters that area.

            True. Jam the missiles first, shoot them down if the don’t stop and finally sink the damn ships that are firing them! I have to admit that It doesn’t work in that nice ‘chronological’ way in the heat of the battle!

          • ruca

            Sink the ships as soon as 2 missiles are detected as fired from the zio-ships. Minimize damage to Syria. Al Tanf should not survive the first 5 minutes also. any response from the SS Nikki Pancake Waitress should result in the complete destruction of all Yankme bases.

        am not going to draw any far reaching conclusions from this, other
        than noting that some people must be pretty desperate to want to
        touch Haley.

        • CyricRenner

          Maybe this is a chance for Trump to test his new “smart`missiles and for Russia to test the S-400. For all its vaunted reputation, I do not believe that S-400 has ever actually been used in real battle conditions.

          Tell you what that though, for Russian businesses that are suffering under sanctions, this is no charade. For the Russian Olympic athletes that were humiliated at the Olympics, forced to wear grey clothing like some sort of prisoners of war and not able to display their flag,it is no charade. Finally,for all the Syrians that are going to be killed when the American missiles start to fly, it is certainly no charade.

          • paul ( original )

            I like the anger under the surface of your post. Clearly not as charade

  • Luutzen

    100 US cruise missiles only? The US threat is bigger than that!
    As SF stated before: 1200 missiles about simultaneously!

    My guess/hope is: the Russians made this easy and obvious calculation upfront, and apparently are still certain to the outcome!

    Russia can use Turkey for troops supply, so no sea blockade taking months, will help.

    • Superfly

      Russia has direct land and air access via Armenia and Iran. Russian jets are already using refueling at the large Iranian Hamadan base. The American idiots have to fly in everything 7,000 kms and that is bankrupting them. Syria is Russia and Iran’s backyard. Never pick a fight in your enemies hood.

      • James Willy

        And why are Putins S400 batteries allowing these planes to fly in? And then out again unhindered? Turn on the switches Vladmir. Same way as he allows yankys across his territory to get into afghanistan. Putin is fake news. A chicken who refuses to fight back.

    • With 40 Pantsyr units in place with 95% take out rates they should be ok. pt take out incoming. However they may have a variety of defences present. Maybe a couple of laser defence units? Russian planes have khibiny units that, according to some reports, can block or freeze the enemies command and control systems; can cripple missile guidance systems,; can cripple airplanes guidance systems; can cripple ship guidance systems. These electronic warfare systems will create immediate havoc with enemy systems. My only question is whether they are set to produce permanent damage or temporary freeze of all radar and guidance systems. This will be a day of many surprises and NATO may have many shocks.

  • TiredOfBsToo

    If you violate International Law, prepare to pay the penalty. Russia must keep it’s word or if not, it would’ve been better to have bowed before the Empire. For if Russia doesn’t act as it’s leader has stated, the bully’s brazen actions will only intensify. Russia has fought for human decency while the Empire has supported head-choppers for the pursuit of greed and power for the few. The moment of truth is at hand, if it means nuclear war, so be it!

      • TiredOfBsToo

        Thanks…. From the beginning, I’ve observed the Russian leadership fail to understand the language of the bully and trying to discuss with them the issues in a rational and respectful manner. The only result from such efforts has been for the bully to intensify it’s provocations and actions. I dealt with a bully in my first year of school, things kept getting worse until I sent him flying into a brick wall; never had a problem with him again. It’s the only language bullies understand. What makes these bullies even more dangerous is that they are also psychopaths, so the sooner they get the message, the better for everyone.

      This is my position. I fear though this is going to be a repeat of the last US missile strike. I am not even sure Russia will make any attempt to intercept the missiles. I hope I am wrong though. Russia’s credibility will sink to zero if they do nothing and there will be more attacks after this one guaranteed.

      The one caveat I would add is that if the Russians are hit during this attack,the Russian military will respond.even if Putin has ordered.them not to. I have faith and confidence in the Russian Armed Forces. Not so much in Putin. I think he has lost his nerve. The last speech he gave was very unconvincing. I still respect what he has done for Russia though. He brought Russia back from what one of their lowest points in history. Restored people’s pride. However, he has been the leader for a long time now and is only human. Stalin himself, the so called man of steel,had a nervous breakdown and was out of commission for about three months shortly after operation Barbarossa.got rolling.

        “I fear..”

        I share your concern. Listening to the Russian UK ambassador this morning, he was asked a very direct question regarding whether or not Russia would shoot down UK or US aircraft if they attacked Syria. He was non-committal and diplomatic. We’ll have to wait and see what happens when the missing-link-knuckle-dragging-psychopaths launch. And yes, if Russia allows them to strike and destroy or retard, the process of ridding the Syrian people of the head-choppers supported by the Empire, they may as well not have intervened at all, for it will surely get worse. For that very reason, I believe Russia will fight back, but it’s still all speculation.

    • James Willy

      I still can only think about Putins track record. So far he refuses to do anything, every time there is a new provocation, which is really every day of the week. I would love to see Putin finally fight back even if it is the last thing we all get to watch. These exceptionalists deserve it and quite frankly it would be better if Putin would do something, then to have to keep living under them.

      • TiredOfBsToo

        Yeah his track record is so so regarding fighting terrorists, for they’re still in Al-Tanf, Manbij and the eastern part of Syria and…. reinforcing themselves. If Russia had responded more forcefully when the Syrian army was first struck, it wouldn’t be to this point we see now. With each back-down by Russia, the missing-link-knuckle-dragging-psychopaths see Russia as weak and helpless, emboldening them to even greater criminal acts.

  • Robert

    I do not have military experience, but only common sense. In my opinion priority is to protect air defense systems only, and allow other missiles to pass through. Even if US has 1000+ missiles, it is important to keep air defense systems operational in long-term and be able to repel enemy airplanes at any time. Missiles will do some damage elsewhere, but without air defense systems, it is game over. Once cruise missiles are used, they will use airplanes – and this is where “fun” starts. Also, in case Americans start to use cruise missiles, it is important to sink ships/subs ASAP, as it will limit total amount of missiles shot.

          • gs1710

            This is the wrong conclusion. The cylinders must have been in circulation since the 1980ies. Second, on the cylinders is written that they are “zur Synthese” which shows that this chlorine gas has been produced originally for industrial purposes in a factory. My conclusion is that these cylinders are stolen from an industrial factory. If you find someone dead, hit with a hammer, made in Sovietunion, you can not say that Russia has delivered hammers for mudering people. The same wrong argumentation has been used in terms of Novichok so as to create a guiltiness of Russia. If you find someone, eating a Hotel Sacher cake, you can not say that this person is from Vienna. :)

          • ZP

            Oh really? What about the fact that there was the whole factory discovered there (Ain Tarma?) with all equipment needed to produce chemical ammunition with stockpiles of mines ALL produced by NATO and all used by their proxy?

          • RichardD

            The no fly zone west of river went from 0% to 70% of Syria with Russian intervention. And the Syrian government advanced underneath it. So obviously NATO backed down.

            Jordan and the UAE have both informed the NATO Jew 3 that will be no attacks on Syria from their territory on Syria according to Fars news. Germany just opted out also.

            There is no public support in the US or UK for another Jew war in the middle east for Israel. None of this is looking good for a confrontation with NATO, no matter how much the neocons want it.

    • 1. Russia and Syria are fully defended from any attack and they can handle and defend against anything incoming.

    Once the shooting starts, the actual theater of combat grows quite large. If Russian forces are attacked in Syria, why would Russia leave command and control centers in Qatar and Bahrain unscathed? Airstrips in Cyprus used by the Brits would be just let be? Now that the KSA has thrown in, they would not get lit up by ….. Iran? Is Israel safe?

    The first launch of anything could to trigger the Russian offensive pieces to begin to eliminate any and all potential assets in theater. In my view, anybody who thinks that thinks it will be a tit or tat exchange is delusional. This is what the quotes from Russian officials are telling me. The Russian fleet and supporting pieces are perfectly capable of winning an engagement against the US lead NATO fleet. President Trump received his memo on this and thus the reason for the back down ( which sounded like something I have heard on the school yards as a child ) from his position yesterday.

      The “shooting” is now understood to be the first stage of the invasion of Syria (MI6 has done it- a perfect victory for their false flag). Putin is not going to face down a massive invading coalition of nations. Russia is out of there.

      It is Iran with the hard choice, tho Iran’s mutual defence treaty with Assad stops at an Israeli invasion, and the dirty jews ain’t a part of the coalition for the SAME reason they were not part of the coaltion that invaded Iraq. Iran will leave too.

      Will Assad stay and fight or run with the Russians? I think like Gadaffi and Saddam he’ll bravely stay and fight to the end. It is Putin who is the ball-less wonder, not the endless leaders Putin has let down in his time.

      • John

        Hello Starlight. I disagree about Russian President Putin. One after he responded to the American President’s Trump threats ( which could be interpreted as the first aggression needed to kick this off ) and the start of the live fire exercise by the Russians, everybody is starting to back off now. NATO/ Coalition et al want no part of a situation where they could get extremely bloodied up. Thank God. I wish well to you Starlight.

      Would they take out any military satellites?
      Putin plans carefully and Russia executes meticulously, precisely and without warning. You won’t know the plan until you trip Putin’s red line. That red line may include the strong expectation of an attack endangering Russia – a preemptive attack.

      How can you blame them for thinking that. Vlad’s track record makes me think the same. And I am just a armchair warrior. Putin so far refuses to engage them. He keeps refusing. So……

  • Chinedu

    A lot of commentators and analysts are wrong just about everything in this case. Russia/Putin has shown a lot of determination and at the same time restraint in dealing with US and Israel over Syria. It is typical of Russia (dating back to the tsarists period) to appear weak before any conflict and hence the reason they have always been underestimated by their opponents… Remember both Hitler and Napoleon comments before they attacked/invaded Russia?

    That said, what many analysts are interested in is just sheer numbers. Having many warships, frigates, subs, aircraft carriers, navy destroyers etc. does not mean a damn thing to someone who possesses anti ship missiles. Russia does not need to have the same amount of naval assets of the combined numbers of US, UK and France. Russia has plenty anti ship missiles capable of destroying all and every naval asset of the allied powers, and that my friend is what matters. In this war all that counts is ANTI SHIP MISSILES and INTEGRATED AIR DEFENCE, which you do agree that Russia is the best in the world in this regard. Currently, Russia has got enough batteries for their S300 and S400 SAMS and they have also layered-up their INTEGRATED AIR DEFENCE systems with multiple jamming sensors thereby building an effective A2-AD (Anti-Access Area Denial) in Syria, which is something that NATO worries extremely about. Russia also has brought in many fighter and bomber jets for forward deployment and attacks.

    In-fact looking at Russia’s contingent forces in Syria, I SAY BRING IT ON!

    bombers that possess the ability to fire cruise missiles.

    The three bombers were escorted by Il-78M tankers and Su-35 fighter jets,
    Iranian sources added. They were met by Iranian F-14A escorts as they
    entered Iranian airspace from Armenia.

    The destination for these planes is the Hamedan Airbase in western Iran.

    • They will for sure.

      • James Willy

        Oh????????? Do you think Putin will do something for a change?
        Believe it when I see it. Till then hes proved hes just a mouthpiece.

        • CyricRenner

          You seem anxious to start WWIII. If you have not noticed, Syria has been winning the war and it is almost all wrapped it up despite all the provocations.Last time Israel entered into Syria airspace their plane was shot down. The US has taken casualties too, they just don`t report them.

          Sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture. I do agree though, that this US launches a major attack, Russia has to respond. They cannot hide in their bases and watch the Syrian Army and Air force destroyed.

        • Ok, people make a BIG mistake re Putin. His negotiations, following international law, honouring treaties, (his patience) pays off big time in terms of settling down the world. But listen well, this man WILL PULL THE TRIGGER exactly when it is needed with ABSOLUTELY NO HESITATION!

    Russian long-range bombers leave host airbase, destination Hamadan, Iran

    Three Russian long-range bombers left their host airbase in southwest Russia,
    today, traveling to an unknown location, defense sources reported.

    bombers that possess the ability to fire cruise missiles.

      BRAVO. Right on. Now fight back FINALLY.

  • Hole

    The Amis didn´t even block North Vietnamese Harbors back than.

  • MichaH

    The number 100 underestimate what a full attack would look like. I also have a problem to understand the described strategy of the cited official, may be an unclear translation…

  • Art Best

    Trump said the missiles are coming.

    Russians, don’t be so daft and take this opportunity, this political cover generously provided by that idiot Trump and sink all the American and Israeli ships in the Mediterranean.

    It’s called “legitimate defense.”

    You obey Putin the Jew and stand down now, you’re dead.

    Exterminate the Jewish oligarchs in Russia.

  • Kell McBanned

    If they are going to risk a strike it will be major, with 540 cruise missiles available thats known let alone other ones not known about underestimating could prove lethal not only to the forces in theater but to the population of the entire planet, if the Zios are going to throw one last fit the question is to meet it head on and sink the ships and bring a thermonuclear exchage on or back down and be humiliated again in the face of blatent provecation, bullying and lies, I say stand on your dick and sink them and whatever happens happens, most bully’s cry when given a good smack in the face.
    Israel is behind this lock stock and barrel, they need to suffer disproportionately in any exchange

      The latter needs to be wiped out completely.

      Probably in an alternate Universe….Russia/Putin there is shooting IAF down as Israelis
      Fight over last Depends on the shelves in Tel Aviv.

      In this universe…
      Zionist get all the breaks

      Putin could place Nuclear Iskander Battalion in Syria. ..and Tada!…..most of this Shekel scheming gets ended by pure lucid moment Fear .

    • James Willy

      Putin refuses to engage them. WTF is the matter with this so called leader? He refuses to do anything about any of the thousands of provocations so far? Thats why this is happening now.

  • RichardD

    The article doesn’t address what a Russian response would be beyond shooting down incoming missiles and aircraft. If it gets to the point where enough damage is being done, and lives are being lost, that it triggers a Russian response. It’s unlikely that that response is going to be limited to within the borders of Syria. That’s not how the Russians fight. They’re almost certainly going to go after the sources of the attacks originating outside of Syria, and probably any assets of the attacker’s inside Syria on the Jordan border and east of the river.

    The Russians are unlikely to run their antiaircraft batteries out of reloads by allowing a swarm attack to proceed. They’l take the initiative and go after the launchers, which also have to be reloaded to discharge their payloads. Which takes time that the Russians will use to shut down the launches.

    A mass attack of cruise missiles will most likely originate from a distance that will delay the delivery of the war heads traveling at sub sonic speeds of 500 mph by up to an hour or more. Giving the Russians time to intercept them before they reach Syria, and more importantly, stop reloads from being fired by destroying the launchers whether, sea, air or land based. The new Russian hyper sonic mach 5 to mach 10 anti-ship missiles can also be used against surface launchers, and probably some airborne targets as well. Which will allow the Russians to start destroying launchers long before they can discharge their entire payloads.

    And they won’t be attacking launchers from just inside Syria. Unlike regional militarys that the NATO Jew miscreants have decimated in the past in places like Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. The Russians have military power projection that extends far beyond the borders of Syria. And they’re not going to wait for an attack to begin before they position equipment for a counter attack. They’l have equipment at close range to the launchers. So that when an attack begins, and it’s confirmed where the ordenence is going, the counter attack can begin immediately.

    The stand off distance that NATO forces have used in the past as a deterrent to counter attack by the victim state. Will be ineffective against the Russians. Because they’l have assets propositioned close to the launchers that will begin attacking them long before their cruise missiles reach their targets. And once NATO begins it’s attack, each individual launcher won’t have to actually have had to have fired at Syria to be attacked itself. If it’s part of the attacking force, it’s fair game and subject to elimination as a potential threat.

    Syria is only 400 miles from Russia. Assets from the entire Russian military in southern and south western Russia can be marshaled on an as needed basis to support counter attacks, with dozens of ships and thousands of modern aircraft available to be drawn from on an as needed basis. Dozens or even hundreds of fighter aircraft can quickly be in theater or on standby for use as circumstances require. And they won’t be limited to Syria. They’l be sent to forward positions where the source of aggression is originating to suppress it.

    These in my opinion are some of the factors deterring the NATO Jew 3 from attacking Syria in any meaningful way.

    • You can call me Al

      Exactly, well said.

      I would also add to the last sentence, that the whole World (IQ over 80) finally knows what a bullying, lying POS the US is, together with the vassal states like France and my UK are pathetic followers – all will lose any credibility they once had.

      Embarrassing to watch.

    • I can’t imagine what Russian defence systems are ready and waiting. Could there be a couple of laser guns ready to do anti drone, anti missile and anti-aircraft defence? That is one way for Putin to rapidly increase his defence capabilities in Syria.
      How many planes equipped with the newest Khibiny anti-electronics systems are ready to suppress the battlefield?
      Would Putin use some anti-submarine weapon systems to take out all offending submarines? Why leave nuclear equipped submarines around to reposition near Russia or anywhere else? You fire; you gone!
      So many questions. What will US arms sales look like after this defeat?
      What happens to US sense of superiority after they get their ass whipped?
      What does the next election cycle look like after the world has seen these idiots in action and seen their forces humiliated?

      • RichardD

        Those are questions that a lot of people are asking. And in my opinion rational answers aren’t favorable for the Jew world order scammers threatening to attack Syria.

        A conventional conflict that stays that way would at best quickly become a stalemate at which the attacking forces would sustain a lot more damage than they ever have before in the same amount of time with similar attacks on regional victim states targeted for regime change. That internal machinations and the lying Jew media wouldn’t be able to cover up because the scale of the destruction would be too great.

        Syria would sustain damage, some ordnance would get through. But what is probably preventing any rash attack from having occurred already in a knee jerk response to the false flag chem attack fabrication. And Trump’s subsequent twitter threats. Is the Russian capability in theater, coupled with what probably isn’t being publicized, but is probably occurring. Which is a significant amount of in NATO’s face aggressive counter measure activity by the Russians outside of Syrian territory in international and maybe even other nation state territory, like Iraq for instance.

        That is giving the prospective NATO Jew 3 attackers a heads up that any hostilities risk formidable counter attacks that will inflict damage that will reduce their stature in world opinion considerably. It would be an image catastrophe of unprecedented magnitude in the post world war 2 era. And despite all of the neocon bombast emanating from US Jew swamp slaves. They’re being told by the military and other sources that they’re getting in over their heads. And that a dust up with the Russians isn’t worth it for the evil Jews and their Israeli crime state.

        • I now fear a Middle East battle involving nukes and creating flash back against Europe and USA. IF this be so here is my message to all: Dear beloved souls, friends, do not be shocked, do not be afraid of what is about to happen on the Earth, in the Middle East. The big battle may come, strategic nukes may be used. Life will go on. So stay on course to experience all of love, life, God, health and peace/prosperity where you are and in who you are. I love you. Stay loving, forgiving and generous for in this is joy and health. With many tears at what seems so nearly upon us. :-)

          • RichardD

            Trump will probably be removed from office before that is allowed to happen. Outlawing Judaism and dejudifing the planet would remove alot of the source of these types of problems in my opinion. They’ve been big trouble makers for a long time. Humanity would be better off without this evil pedophile mass rape cult.

            Do you really think Vladmir will FINALLY fight back this time? What makes you think that? Why is this time any different then the thousands of other provocations he refuses to do anything about?

          • He does not act on provocations. He does not let OTHERS provoke him because he knows EXACTLY WHAT HE IS DOING!

      • James Willy

        Maybe there is if Vladmir would only turn the switches on. His track record aint promising at all.

    • Tudor Miron

      I will say that this is good analyses. Theater is close enough to strike it from multiple lounch platforms. Strategic bombers (yes Tu-22M3 is designed to be aircraft carrier killer) are moved to Iran right now. Ships and subs in Caspian sea with Kalibr missiles. Kinjal hypersonic anti aircraft is first deployed in Southern Russia (accident?). That would not be another Iraq. Vietnam will feel like triuphant victory after they really get Russia into the fight. Many people think that just numbers mean everything. But history shows that it aint so. At the start of NK and Vietnam wat US has had every imaginable advantage (in numbers) and Russia was countering with very minimal forces. It didn’t work well for US. Right now Russia is showing that with minimal force in Syria they are capable of doing more than US led coalition with much more hardwate at its disposal and spends much less resources. What is also very important is that Russia is proven to be able to endure much higher losses and keep fighting at the point when western forces will long fall apart.

      • RichardD

        Thank You

        The quality and quantity of hardware available on both sides is such that it wouldn’t be a manpower intensive conflict with tank armies etc.. Trump would never get it through Congress.

        There’s no public support for another Jew war for Israel. Losing top end equipment like ships and planes would be a disaster for an already troubled US administration. Which is why nothing has happened.

        And a Korean type intimidation campaign with carrier battle groups close by is unlikely to deter the Russians or Iranians who’ve seen it before. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail and Trump will be detered from doing anything stupid.

    • James Willy

      Wow. That all sounds great. Now if Putin would actually do these things maybe I would respect him again. He is looking and sounding weak. He keeps saying he will do what you repeat as well and I have heard it so many times over and over he refuses to do a dam thing. We all know Putin could do what he keeps saying so why does he keep refusing. What makes you think it is going to be different for the next provacation? I aint holding my breath waiting for him. I would love to see Russia do that to these zionaxi scum. Even if its the last thing we ever see. It would be worth it watching that go down. Pray that Putin keeps his word after the next provocation.

      • RichardD

        I’m not familiar with what you’re referring to.

          I want to see Putin do all the things you said he can do. I want to see Putin fight back for a change.

      “The Buk M3 (Beech M3) is a brand new Russian air defense system. It uses new missile and has advanced electronic components. It has much improved capabilities comparing with the older Buk systems. It outperforms even the old S-300P long-range air defense system.”

    Accoding to the Russian language site linked below, Russia has already sent 40 Pantsir systems to Syria. https://ria.ru/syria/20180409/1518206215.html?utm_source=ria.24smi.info&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=2337&utm_content=1587613
    The beauty of this system is that, even if the rocket component gets depleted, the cannons can continue to fire, and the number of rounds is virtually unlimited. We can probably assume that if the cannons prove effective against the wimpy Tomahawks, the rockets will not be used or will be used sparingly.
    Then if the US decides to launch bigger, faster “smart” missiles, the rockets can be launched. Failing that, the S-400 can be employed.
    Russia is expecting this to be an advertisement for its air defences that will boost sales worldwide.

    • So 40 systems with 12 rockets each gives 520 rockets to work with. The Panzir system, which also fires 2 30 mm canon, is a close-in air defence system designed to defend ground installations against a variety of weapons including fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, ballistic and cruise missiles, precision-guided munitions and unmanned air vehicles. The system has been designed to engage all target types, especially high-precision weapons, considering their developments as far ahead as 2020-2025. It has a high kill probability of about 0.7 to 0.95 against all targets.

  • Ted

    Well if it was the big test I would say they failed! Total Fail! The Brits sent 1970’s Tornado on Damascus runs. Perhaps the follow up articale will be S400 and Pantsir fail big test?

    Where is the idiot who says has (((“sources”))) on the ground in Syria reporting and claims Russia was only taking about the non-existent threat of US attacking Russian bases. When Trump said he was going to strike Syria, no mention of Russian bases. This whole article has no mention of Russia only going to defend Russian bases and personnel. It mentions jewamerica planning to attack Syria and the inevitable Russian defense of Assad’s Syria in the event of a jewamerica attack. Even Trumpstein’s tweets understood this and Trumpstein was the idiot who ok the attack plan.
