Syrian Air Defense Forces Shot Down Israeli Warplane, Israeli Responds With More Airstrikes

F-16 crash site

UPDATE: One of the Israeli pilots was severely wounded.

***

On February 10, the Syrian Air Defense Forces shot down an Israeli F-16 warplane after it had carried out airstrikes on what the Israeli side described as Iranian facilities from which a UAV was allegedly launched to the Israeli-held area.

According to the Syrian state-run media, the Israeli airstrikes hit “one of the military bases in the central area [of Syria], and the army air defense confronted the aggression and hit more than one aircraft.” [Local sources say that the Israeli strikes allegedly targeted the T4 Airbase, but this still has to be confirmed.]

The Israeli military confirmed that one F-16 was shot down, but said that the pilots survived the incident.

Following the F-16 shotdown, the Israeli Air Force carried out a new series of airstrikes against Syria reportedly targeting the Al-Kiswah area in the countryside of the Syrian capital Damascus. The Syrian state-run media added that the country’s air defense forces responded to this “agression” also.

The situation is developing.

    Was it shot down or mechanical fault crash … ?

    • LR captain

      shot By SAA

    • Alpha&Omega

      Mechanical fault due too much lead in the engine and to many holes in the airframe ;-)

      shill, how many shekels?

        he is proud wolf, jackal dano

    • Bob

      Mixed reports at this stage – some media saying shot down others saying pilots ejected due to incoming targeting missiles – either way that F-16 ended up on ground in burning heap.

    • Superfly

      Bird strike for sure :) like the F-35 previously eh.

  • paul ( original )

    At last ! This is good to hear and I hope is just the beginning of many such
    successes.

    • LR captain

      they already took out a drone and some missiles.

      • If I were ‘Coalition force’ I’d think twice before challenging the capability of Russian air-defense system in Syria. Would a single coalition plan be lucky enough to return home?

        • Joe

          It’s Syrian not Russian although Russia may have helped.

          Russia does not target Israel planes

          • You gravely missed my point, sorry to say.

        • jellyrajah

          The “Coalition force” politicians don’t care about their soldiers being killed. As long as they please their masters in Tel Aviv, that’s all that matters.

    • Merijn

      Congratulations…… take’m ALL down…… saves a lot of trouble…….

    • Rob

      Now Israel cannot claim that Syrians are aggressors or Syria have invaded Israel. F-u-c-k Israel.

  • LR captain

    I expect the comment section to haywire with pro-western cyber trolls trying to curb the social fallout from this event.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    very fuckin nice :)))) KEEP YOUR AA DEFENSES STRONG SYRIA!!! AND DOWN EVERY AGGRESSOR!!!

  • LR captain

    so if The SAA shot down the F-16 that meas Russia has rebuilt the Syrian air defenses to such a point that they start denying their airspace the Israeli fights jets. (Israel does not want the public to think this so they pass it off as Iranian drone.)

    The Israeli drone shot down (Israelis looking for the Air deffence complex/system that shot down their fighter)

    the missile attack (found what shot down the F-16 is more than they could handle choose to bombard another target to show) we can still hit you. (childish response)

    But lets play out Israels claim then.
    Iranian drone (that is controlled by Hezbollah)

    Then the Israeli drone shot down in syria. (looking for supposed location from where is was launched)

    the missile attack (most likely the place was too well guarded to hit. So they choose to hit a Hezbollah convoy instead.)

    • Bob

      Also being highly speculative – but potentially this could have been a baited trap. Send Iranian UAV to northern Israeli border – wait for standard Israeli aggressive response – then paint and launch at IAF F-16 from the now Russian upgraded Syrian SAM systems. Loud message telegraphed that there is a new engagement paradigm…?

      • LR captain

        far fetched but do-able

        • Bob

          Indeed highly speculative – but like to table all scenarios!

          • velociraptor

            No new paradigm. Inbetween were 3 waves of IL attack. 1 in dep land, in central Syria. And the syrian AD had no chance. As germans say: einmal ist keinmal (one times is zero times). When we will see, that the syria AD shoot down 8 out 10 IL planes, this will be a new paradigm. ;)

          • Bob

            You are the anti-Putin guy, and now appears you rather pro-Israeli, your profile becomes clearer.

      • SnowCatzor

        I was thinking that too. Something similar was done by the Iraqi army in 2003 against dozens of US Apaches with good success.

        However, truth be told, they probably just got lucky with their AA this time.

  • Daniel Martin

    Well the Israeli’s tested the Syrian pdatients for a very long time by by committing blatant aggressioen against it’ Syrian arab neighbor both directly and injdirectly through their proxy terrorist forces. What is interesting to me in this case is the timing. Until know the Syrian air defenses where kept mostly in a passive mode against Israeli aggressions, and me knowingly this is the second time that they have engaged seriously the Israelis the first time was when the alleged hit of their F-35 couple of months ago that the Israelis wrote off as irreparable due to an alleged “bird-strike”.

    This downing of an Israeli F-16 comes just couple of days after the Russian Su-25 was
    hit and it’s pilot killed by the terrorists, is this just a coincidence or not, I really don’t know, but what I do know is that this will seriously escalate the already bad relationship between Israel and Syria it seems that the Syrians are finally determined to stop Israeli aggression and there is no doubt in my mind that they’ve got a green light for this from their allies.

    It’s time for Israel rethink it’s strategy in Syria while this is still manageable because if it spirals out of control it could get very nasty for everyone, including Israel.

    • LR captain

      Isreal has nukes and will threaten to use them if it gets really bad for them.

      • Bob

        Nuking your immediate neighbor is actually a very bad idea – it would result in the radioactive dusting of Isreal’s own immediate region – including water supplies and agriculture.

        • Daniel Martin

          Agreed, this a no goer, besides it would have severe political and military imp

          • FlorianGeyer

            When has Israel ever bothered about Illegality Daniel ?
            The UN pronounced Israeli thefts of Palestinian lands illegal decades ago and nothing has changed .

        • LR captain

          the heads of Israeli government are not rational people and if they think that Israeli will be forced to give back the land they stole the arabs they threaten nukes. (if I can’t have this land no one will) they at point would be considered a terrorist state because they are using the lives of all the civilians as bargaining chip. (we don’t get what we want they die)

          • war is bad for business ( unless you are a defense contractor)
            my personal experience of Israel and Jewish people is that they are very business oriented, quite creative and of course trying to get the best part in a commercial negotiation as everyone else (albeit with a peculiar style)

            Of course I have visited only industrial area, companies, engineer and manager… I have never been in the settlement.

            Now I do believe that, if a reasonable solution for the security of the whole area is proposed, the business oriented Jewish part of their society could drive the acceptance of a compromise.

          • Joe

            The Jews think having land is way to prosperity.

            Today no. The Jews should use the wealth and brains to prosper just like the Chinese in Singapore .

            Using office workers soldiers to grab land is stupid . Use their biggest assets…money and brains

        • dontlietome

          They have already carried out 3 nuke attacks against Syria using smaller battlefield tac.nukes. These are the same as those used by the Americans when they attacked Baghdad airport during the 2nd gulf war. Its the same sort of nuke which was used by the Saudi’s against the Houthi weapons stores near Sanaa. There is enough literature and video’s out there, ( try trawling South Front or Veterans today ) These are basically low blast neutron weapons, but create a very powerful neutron blast, c/w localised super-heating which helped in the cases of the 2 WTC blocks, to melt/dissolve the basements and foundations, whilst creating a searing cloud of plasma gas which tore its way thro’ the concrete floors.

          • Hide Behind

            Been aware of Us Israe using new style weaponry and even of where the science of smaller variable power tactical nukes originated, India
            VT site was hit by US/ Israel designed Stuxnet virus after its report of Yemen And Ukraine blast
            Too may Uas and Israel full time and hundreds of Israeli Intel crawlers on net.

          • dontlietome

            Thank you for the heads-up, but I don’t think they are interested in someone as insignificant as me.

          • Ewan

            Thats fine.But there is also no real defense against an Iranian-Hizbollah saturation missile strike that will obliterate Israeli cities. They know that.

      • Nigel Maund

        This option is simply not on the table – just think, before posting, of the likely consequences of this action?

      • Barba_Papa

        Israel has also always denied it has nukes. That way everybody can deny there is a problem. To actually threaten to use them would cause serious problems for Israel and its friends, as now they can no longer deny it it. Things would have to be really dire for Israel to start doing that. As in another Yom Kippur war and Arab armies at the brink of invading Israel. Doesn’t seem a very likely scenario.

      • Barry Warmkessel

        Israel already nuked Israel 2 times in 2013!

            Evangelicals don’t advocate death and destruction anywhere. Any D&D is up to God.

            Isn’t it simply that they think that the Bible justifies the state of Israel? This is worse than the Sampson Option? Please! Can you not distort their views?

        btw the enemy have Chemical / Biological warheards , not pretty if those are released on the beautiful cities of occupied israel..

    • Bob

      Russia has been quietly upgrading and network integrating the older Syrian SAM systems – the timing here may have to do with both sufficient upgrade works completed and the Su-25 incident – meaning time and response to unveil the newly improved Syrian defense capacity…?

      • Garga

        I believe the timing is not related to the Syrian at all. Syrian air defence has been upgraded for some time and proven it’s worth some times ago by intercepting Israeli missiles and the Stork-stroken F-35 perhaps.

        Israel used to attack Syria from it’s own occupied airspace or Lebanon’s. Why did they attack Syria directly by sending jets inside Syrian airspace this time?
        They would fully know that the Syrian AD will intercept their jets but sent it anyway to get hit. I believe they wanted to escalate and have a justification [in their own eyes and their MSM] to directly involve and drag the US into the conflict with both Syria and Iran.
        Notice how they “hold” Iran responsible for Syria’s answer to their clear provocative aggression.

        If this incident does not escalate into direct involvement of the US within the next 48 hours, we can thank god for the countless Syrian (and perhaps Iranian) civilian lives spared, as it’s the US’s habit to hit the opponent’s civilians where it’s military proves to be capable.

        • Ann Johns

          Timing is everything, has everyone forgotten that the americans are in israhell right now doing military “drills”. Way too coincidental for my liking.

          • Joe

            What’s the difference between US forces and Israeli forces . Both fight the same old ways….with air Support. So Hez alone can handle both now that Hez has massive supplies of missiles .

            For US planes ,Hez has no Tanks to be destroyed

            So no problem

          • Vitex

            The Syrian war has shown that tanks are a liability without good tactics. I remember the SAA T72s got hammered in the early days of the war. Hezbollah knows that they’re better off with lots of antitank weapons than investing in expensive and vulnerable armour

          • Joe

            Anti tank teams are stealthier than any tank …and equally destructive and immune to air power.

            Each team keeps a good distance between themselves will negate any air power including F35 or F22

            so for Assad to drive off the Americans really is no problem even without Russia who may be scared may trigger wider conflict with the Americans.

            Iran has enough manpower and equipment to force US out and Iran definitely does not give two hoots to US/Israeli threats

          • IsraelReader

            Israel has proven that it has made its tanks practically impervious to anti-tank missles, by developing the “Trophy” “Windbreaker” system.

          • Joe

            That is not a cure… really .
            Its useless in door to door city fighting … and will get destroyed very very easily.

            Point is can israeli soldiers able to fight door to door against fighters who stand and fight and in fact will invite you for an embrace and go to heaven together.

            Those days of Arabs running away before firing a shot is long gone ….

          • IsraelReader

            IDF fights smarter.
            It will use other means to achieve its objectives, without using boots on the ground.
            The will stay in their tanks, and bomb away until the place is flattened into a parking lot.
            Or use targeted killings, to cut off the heads of the snakes that try to kill them.

          • zman

            Yeah, it is probably as effective as the Iron Dome or Israeli air invincibility. Honestly, 90% of Israeli claims are pure propaganda, designed to instill fear and false claims of superiority. It’s part of their war by deception.

            If Hezbollah attacks Israel, then Lebanon, as you know it today, will cease to exist.

            Since Hezbollah is part of the Lebanaese government, attacking Israel, a sovereign state, is casus belli for Bad A$$ IDF to make pork chops out of Hezbollah and Lebanon.

          • Joe

            Are you serious?
            Lebanon 2006 proved 10 Israel vs 1 hez and lost and how the heck you can even make a dent through Hez lines let alone fully supported by Lebanese armed forces this time?

            Cease to exist my foot. More likely Israel proper will be invaded as today air force counts not that much if forces are armed with ATGM and rpgs .

            Look at the bare footed Houthis against the entire air force of Arab countries plus endless bombs supplied by Americans (making lots of money)… no effect.

            Israel does not have the manpower nor experience in door to door serious fighting too and imagine , Iran , SAA , Hez and even Iraqis all with fearless minds attacking your small army with office workers soldiers.

            So you think Hez allies will fight alone? Stop dreaming.

            Give us a break .

            You got that right, he who laughs last. Well, at this point the Syrians are laughing…and the Israelis are lying their asses off. The rest of the world may not have to worry about Bibi, the Israelis may jail that criminal scum sooner than later, especially if they think he’s going to get Israel wasted…and if he keeps his shit up, that is exactly what will happen. Israel no longer has weaponry that is 1 or 2 generations better than their neighbors. Syria just showed them that even 40-50 year old design missiles with electronic upgrades can and will take out their no-longer superior equipment. Wait until their S300s come on line. Then when the Syrians can afford it, they will be moving up to S400s. Israelis will be needing a huge new shipment of coffins…and underwear for the survivors.

            Israel destroyed Lebanon two times…………and the Resistance is very alive………….

          • IsraelReader

            You ain’t seen nothing yet…

            The difference being, that in the past Hezbollah was not part of the Lebanese government, so Israel could not destroy Lebanon’s infrastructure as retaliation for Hezbollah’s acts of aggression.

            Now that Hezbollah is officially part of the Lebanaese government, attacking Israeli civilians with a rain of missiles, is enough to justify Israel destroying the entire Lebanase infrastructure, including power plants, water and sewage plants, radio and TV stations, and airports.
            Add to the list, anything that I may have forgotten.
            Not to worry. Israel has a massive bank of targets.
            The first 24 hours will be ones that Lebanon will remember regretfully for a long time.

            Since 2011 Washington have invaded Syria through its terrorists by using and abusing Islam against Syrian nation. Thanks to God, Hezbollah, Iran and Iraqi forces who have rescued 70% Syrian nation from Washington, Israel and Erdogan. Still 30% Syrian land is in their control which will be liberated with in next few months.

            I also have a video of a drone. What does that mean.Unless drone screams “I was sent by Iran” that “proof” means nothing. NuttyYahoo wants to paint Israeli aggression as Iranian aggression, nothing new. Blame the victim.Zionists are masters at it.

            A drone went to Golan .. and it means deadly to Israel’s survival and a serious threat …. wowo .. then the F16 went in and got shot down … wow escalation to a serious level for daring to shoot down an attacking plane.

            Wow what kind of logic is that?

            that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

          • zman

            Actually, Israel has been doing just that with a few F-16s. But this one was indeed piloted.

          • politicaljules

            You cannot make an f-16 a drone. I assume you do not know much about military jets.

          • zman

            Well, thats where you would be wrong. The US converted old F4s to drones. Any guess how long ago that was?

          • Joe

            Turnign planes to drones is not rocket science . Everyone can do it. Chinese did that years ago.

          • zman

            Duh. Tell politicaljules.

        • Vitex

          I think both sides are testing the air defences of their opponents. I suspect the SU25 might have been hung out there as bait to see where the manpads were – and it worked – and the Israelis might be doing the same thing, i.e. gathering intel on Syrian AD capabilities

      • IsraelReader

        The Israelis have struck in Syria more than 100 times, without Syria being able to intercept anything. Syria will soon be asking Russia for a REFUND.

        • Bob

          So why then are you here – attempting to assert hollow pride – the self declared ‘invincible’ IAF lost an F-16 and had F-15 damaged – wake up.

          • IsraelReader

            From what I know, the F-16 was lost due to human error.
            I can not go into details, but the IAF will be reviewing strategy will all its pilots.
            One thing is sure, is that it’s was not due to Syrian technological superiority.

        • Joe

          This time they are using Iranian ones and plenty of it as usual by Iran …

          Notice this time it is the Iranians the gave the serious confident warning to Israel NOT RUSSIA who prefer to keep quiet as they are buddies.

          As Iran has declared to the Americans … leave or be forced out .
          The massive build up of SAMs surely has to do with it as they know Russia may not be in it to drive out the Americans from Syrian soil.

          • zman

            I don’t know where you get the idea that these missiles were Iranian supplied . These are Syrian missiles, modified with new electronics by the RUSSIANS. Syria has a fair stock of older missiles and a much smaller amount of newer types. ALL are being upgraded and integrated, which means they are tied into the Russian defense net, hence the Syrians new-found missile capabilities. The only down side to some of these missiles are their shorter range and speed. There is no massive build up of SAMs. Please show some links to support your ‘massive buildup’ of SAMs statement.

          • Joe

            Do I have to show you black and white?

            Study the facts on the ground.

            When was the last time Assad/Iran said with such strong words and shot so many missiles?

            Never because Assad was dependent on Russians who would not give Assad a decent SAM system but willing to sell to others ….not even Iran on the S400. Why? It will affect Israel.

            Why suddenly Iran is so vocal if the missiles are not from them. It should be the Russians shouting but no Iran.

            Ate you to tell me Iran has no missile that can shoot down planes and only Russia has it?

            In fact there were so many Attacks on Syria that Russia’s system stayed silent and got top Iranian leader killed too.

            Basically Russia does not want to get involved in Israeli issues .
            Cannot blame them as their job is to kill terrorists nothing more.

            So know this, to tackle the Israeli and or Americans, my take is that Assad and Iran have to take responsibility as Russian hands are tight.

          • zman

            I see after reading your drawn out post, I see that there is no link showing your statement that these were Iranian missiles, as I knew there would not be. As for the Russians, if you don’t know the agreement between Syria and Russia by now, well there is no reason to remind you. As for the missile subject, many here have already commented on the RECENT upgrading and integration into the Russian defense net of older less effective units, into much more effective weapons. If you want to continue to bash the Russians, go ahead, just know that there are very few here that believes such rubbish. Go read this article…it shows Syrian missile assets. Facts are better than blather. https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/02/10/intel-drop-israeli-strike-on-syria-utter-failure/

          • Joe

            The article did point to Syrian upgrading but does not explain why earlier it did not repulse the Israel attacks.

            Only recently you start to read Syria was able to intercept Israeli missiles effectively and massively.

            To be able to do this only now showed SAA must have received new equipment and plenty of it and that can only be through Iran.
            thru the land bridge from Iran.

          • zman

            “RECENT upgrading and integration into the Russian defense net”…that is the answer to your 3 paragraphs. The link showed the Syrian inventory and those that have AS YET to be upgraded. The missiles that were used were UPGRADED S-200 and 125s, very old missiles. The targeting and tracking of incoming craft is done by the Russian defense net, Iran has NOTHING to do with it. I’m sorry that you cannot grasp the information here, but that is your issue. Why you continue to dis the Russians is beyond me. It is almost like you want to put the onus on Iran for Syria’s defense response. That is the very same line the US and Israel (especially) are pushing as Israels’ excuse for attacking Syria.

        • zman

          A refund for what? Please take your obvious BS somewhere else, no one here wants to read your propaganda crap. What everyone got to see this time around was older (60s and 70s design) missiles taking out and damaging the backbone of western/Israeli aircraft in service today. The biggest loser is the Israeli facade of invulnerability. It is permanently dead. BTW, this is not the first time Syria has hit Israeli aircraft, this is merely the first time Israel cannot deny it. Don’t think the US doesn’t see what this means for their survivability too. If the Syrians had used their S300s, I doubt any IAF would have gone home.

    • justaminute

      it was israhell that tore up Syria using proxy armies and I hope it is payback time

    • Christian Gains

      My SENTIMENTS completely Daniel!

      It’s the expansion of this conflict that’s EXTREMELY worrisome! Another expanded conflict is NOT in the LEAST good for ANY of these forces…AND! When there’s a DRY TINDER BOX, closely set to a blazing fire, there’s TOO much likelihood for an explosion!

      As well, Syria’s CLEAR intentions of responding in FORCE, {PERFECTLY understandable…Asad HAS BEEN MORE than merely patient…PROBABLY due to distracting field conditions], is NOW the STAND, and Israel had BETTER NOT miss THAT POINT!

      The REAL PROBLEM is that, Israel is equally as belligerent! BUT! Without the degree of reason…they’re simply being OVERLY cautious, (OR trying to CREATE a reason for attacking???!!!), which IS LIKELY, [since Asad has the time & conditions to RETALIATE in FORCE], NOW going to give rise TO AN EXPANDED CONFLICT, which, {IF NOT CEASED}, WILL LEAD into an even BROADER Fight…and THEN the SHTF BIG TIME!!!…Something NONE of us should desire!!!

      I’m THOROUGHLY CONVINCED that the M.E. has become, [OR been MADE into], just TOO much of a tinder box, and there’s just too many splinter factions, (not to mention the BIG TIME PLAYERS), too close to their enemies, for this to stop!

      FRANKLY, I’m beginning to wonder IF the oft discussed “FOURTH Turning” IS ACTUALLY coming to fruition…with ABSOLUTELY no good result for the “G.P.” ANYWHERE…And, the G.P. is what I am MOST CONCERNED about!!! This is INSANITY!!!

      Daniel, your LAST comment is PURE TRUTH! Israel had BETTER rethink it’s STRATEGY!!! This is NOT the time for them to try & pull off they’re insane “Oden Yinon” plan….THIS TRULY IS creeping towards CRAZY TIME!!!!????

    • jellyrajah

      Yes, it could get very nasty, but at the same time, it may rid the world of the nasty, racist, anti-Christian state calling itself “Israel”.

    • Top notch for your comment Daniel.

    • This is not the first time Russia retaliate against covert Foreign Powers operating in Syria. Remember the incident back then where NATO jets killled syrian soldiers on a convoy ? right after that the Russian launch cruise missiles from mediterran ships to unknown targets near western syria , and allegedly it was an intel listening post manned by Saudi, Turk , Israeli , US/UK intel operative..

      Remember the death of Deir er Zour general along with visiting Russia commander ? right after their death , the russkies launched Cruse missile taking out ‘certain’ targets ..

      • politicaljules

        Russia condemned Israel for retaliating agains Syria.

        • israel break so many international law for decades when it tramples the sovereignity of it’s neighbour’s airspace … now they screamed rape when a single unarmed drone entered golan height ?? golan height is not israeli territory , it is syrian land stolen by israeli..

          • IsraelReader

            The Golan Heights is now Israeli territory.
            The Arabs are victims of their own STUPIDITY.

          • IsraelReader

            Hmmm.
            ASSad confident?
            He really should be buying extra underwear.
            Intestinal incontinence is a real bummer.
            Israel has attacked in Syria 100 times, and Syria has been impotent to stop Israel. In the last attack, DOZENS of ani-aircraft missiles were shot at the Israel planes, and they were unable to stop the Israelis.
            ASSad should be asking the Russians for a REFUND.

          • zman

            Yeah…ask those in Israel about intestinal incontinence. It was probably running down both pantlegs of Israelis when they saw all those AD systems heading north…especially after an old outdated soviet era missile took out one of their vaunted F-16, made an F-15 unusable and damaged two more. You really need to stop reading those right wing Israel rags for your info, you embarrass yourself. This mission was a complete flop. It was every bit the failure as the 59 cruise missiles the US launched. The takeaway here, since you are too brainwashed or too plain stupid to realize or admit, is that the days of US equipment superiority is over and done. That’s why the Turks, Saudis and many others are buying Russian, not American. Ding-dong the witch is dead, the wicked old witch….

            If Israel is weaker than in the 1970s, then why haven’t the Arabs reconquered the land they lost due to their stupidity in 1967? They had over FIFTY years to do so.

            The answer is, that even stupid Arabs understand when their backsides are whooped.
            However the problem is, that they tend to forget rather quickly, and every few years need to be reminded again.

            Americans and Israeli politicians engage in static analysis. If we do this then that is the end of the matter. Well, other people do not have infinite patience and tolerance and they also look at the world differently. I’m an American and I cannot stomach the arrogance of the smug fools who determine “U.S.” policy and throw away every advantage and precious resource possible and cause such death and destruction. If I were a Russian I would be apoplectic at seeing one of my fighters brought down by a MANPAD missile foolishly and recklessly provided by the U.S. or one of our coalition “partners.” Thus, no one should be surprised when a bullet or a rocket arrives thanks to “anonymous.”

          • Theres plently of American , including military veterans and ex intelligence people who kept warning people about the incredible amount of neocon / pro israel / warmonger in US leading bodies..

          • it took certain amount of humility , will and intelligence to escape from decades of western MSM propaganda , and not many american people are aware or even care about the truth anymore.. they all just parrot the MSM as if it is truth. Majority of american public never know or want to know the truth about american govt and the bloody hand it wield for decades , while potraying itself as defender of ‘democracy’ ‘liberty’ ‘human right’s..

            the reality ? unless you are american or european or those nations under american vassallage like Japan / Southkorea / Australia / NZ / Canada , you dont have the rights as a human being and you are ok to be killed by american ‘democratic’ bombs ..

        That Russia retaliated was because many of their soldiers were killed.

            Not really; he clearly addressed the malfeasance of the Russian government in relation to Russia’s partners and natural allies. First reneging on the supply of the S-300 systems to Iran, then even dastardly blackmailing Iran after Iran wanted to bring the case to the International Court of Arbitration.

            While Dmitrij Anatoľjevič Medveděv’s government was responsible for it, it was a clear indication that the Russians might be insidious, treasonous scumbags who simply throw their partners and allies overboard for no good reason.

            I am doing my best..Putin has 150(inside Russia)+~50(outside) million Russians to care indeed. And he reacts extremely slowly to the provocations or direct attacks that they face-like in Ukraine..

          • dontlietome

            …………….So you understand the consequences if Putin reacts to provocation in the Ukraine ???????????

          • Drinas

            Yes, there wll be none. Besides, I am talking abut the 2014 events. He should have acted then..Now ukraine is a finished deal

          • dontlietome

            Porky Porochenko doesn’t see it that way………………the war continues unabated in a guerrilla-type conflict. There is no doubt that the R.F. has supplied a huge quantity of arms, and the Chechens a huge amount of manpower……………….but as I said the war will continue until the Septics have finally accepted that there is nothing more they can rob, steal or rape from the Ukraine. Putin is not stepping in because he knows that the Ukr. will eventually die economically, its in the early stages at this time. The Yanks will want to keep a military presence there as they have plans for at least a dozen bio-weapons labs, so its in their interest to keep the unrest going. The Septic forces are those under the control of the Pentagon/zionist cabal, so unless those mercs are cut off from money, they will be there for a while. They are a greater threat to Europe than Russia. ( Septic tank = yank )

    • John Whitehot

      explaining it to such a fucked up mind would be a waste of time and keystrokes.

      In any case, it has to do with Syria being in a bloody civil war for years and having to make priorities, with the process of acquisition, installation, integration and training of such complex systems in their air defenses being unfeasible at the present.

      • Antikapitalista

        O.K., I do not consider engaging with such a fucked-up mind to be a waste of time and keystrokes, so: you are trying to say that the clerks and the whole bureaucracy, including anti-aircraft military specialists, would be more useful as cannon fodder in front-line battles??! :-o

        • dontlietome

          Don’t be a donkey, have you not been following , I mean REALLY following what has been happening to Syria…………? Where do you think the regime is going to get the money to finance a multi-million dollar deal ? This war is bleeding Syria to death in ever way you can think of. Russia, Iran ,the Hezbollah allies who have stood steadfast, cannot be expected to drop anything and deliver their peoples into a new war. Each supports by degree;s and gives what it can afford to do, The sheer amount of work that is involved to build a single AA suite by the Russian constructor ALMEY ALMAZ. but moreover the demand, has risen by a factor of 10 and its increasing………. A.A. has increased the size of its manufacturing facilities by 4 fold……………and they know that it won’t stay so for long………….. So production cannot keep up with demand, hence the refurbishment of the SAA’s S200’s by the most cost-effective means .

        • John Whitehot

          “you are trying to say that the clerks and the whole bureaucracy, including anti-aircraft military specialists, would be more useful as cannon fodder in front-line battles??!”

          What went wrong with your brain?

          I’m trying to say exactly what I’ve said, once again replying to people that ignores anything about air defense but has to pick up every possible occasion to vulgarly criticize Russia, or Syria, or whatever country opposes the international criminal organization they are paid two cents to be their whores.

          Also, has the doubt that Assad and Syria have never asked to buy S-300s and 400s ever crossed your opportunistic crippled minds?

          You make me vomit.

    • Hrky75

      …I’m not a Putin fan, but I think I can explain. Modern Russian AD has to be a multi layers system that works in conjunction with top of the line fighters – several dozen of them. SAM systems alone are sitting ducks that can be easily taken out with saturation attacks by stand-off ordnance. You need to have it supported by fighters – otherwise you end up with Iraqi and Libyan scenario and a lot of fancy clips of smart bombs smashing into radars and equipment. But top of the line network – say several brigades of S-300s backed up by BUK M3s and Pansirs together with infrastructure, communications, spares and several 1000s trained troops to operate it cost upwards of 10 bn USD. And even if you find that kind of money – Syria doesn’t have it, maybe Iran or China, but I think they are already paying for Syrian war effort – it’s virtually impossible to set it up in present conditions. First thing the rebels did in 2011/12 was to gut Syrian AD network – especially around Damascus and west Qalamoun along the Lebanese border – precisely the gap through which IDF attacks. Plus you have Idlib and the whole 1/3 country east of Euphrates as virtual AD black holes. And in the unlikely event that you find the money, set up the system, train the troops and start using it – how are you going to supply it? Because it will spend 100s of missiles in weeks of heavy combat. Through the Bosporus? You mean Erdogan would be Ok with Assad controlling his own airspace and being able to shoot down TAF planes at a whim…No my friend, what the Russians have done in Syria in geo-strategic and logistical sense is a bloody miracle contrary to conventional military wisdom. They supply their own force plus the whole Syrian army with supply lines running through enemy controlled territory (Turkey, US and Israel) all the while winning against the people that control those lines. In that situation you can’t afford to clobber all the people you’d like to clobber…

      • RichardD

        That’s all true if you segregate Russian and Syrian systems. But they’re integrated. What’s being sent up from the Syrian part of the system is watching through both Syrian and Russian observation and communication systems.

        • Hrky75

          …I agree. But in the present state of things you can expect the Russians to help Syrians take down an occasional F-16, a drone or two and some cruise missiles. Current Russian AD system is not enough to take on the Israelis full on, not to mention the whole CENTCOM…

          • RichardD

            The Russians can shut down the IDF conventionally a lot faster than many people think. They’ve got basing agreements with Egypt and now Lebanon. There will be no shortage of MIG-29s if they’re needed. And it isn’t very far from southern Russia itself to Syria by air.

          • Hrky75

            …that means all out war with Israelis and of course the US. Just what the Neocons are hoping for. Russia will not risk it for the sake of Syria I’m afraid. They don’t plan for it and they don’t have the money or enough modern hardware to do it. As for Egypt those wimps are bought and paid for buy Saudis – their economy and military over all depends on Saudi handouts in oil and cash. And if you forget about facts for just a moment – you’d need a gargantuan logistical operation to set up an air-army in Egypt and a large fleet to guard your supply lines from Israeli and US navies. That kind of effort takes months to set up…

          • RichardD

            The US has no mutual defense pact with the Jews and they’re unlikely to get one. Russia can do so much damage to Israel so quickly that much of the IDF would be neutralized. If the baby rapers start poking the Russian bear with a sharp stick, they’l get a smack down sooner or later that they’l regret. Which is why they avoid it.

          • Hrky75

            Since when does the US military need a legal basis to attack anyone…If Russia decides to hurt Israel all the AIIPAC sponsors of US politicians will go berserk and demand action – and more “aid” of course. And the neocons have already prepared the US public for the confrontation with Russia.

          • RichardD

            They went berserk in 73 and it didn’t do them much good. The baby rapers are a lot less popular with most Americans outside of the DC beltway and a 50 mile radius of NYC than the lying Jew media tries to mislead people to believe. Getting involved in a war in the middle east with Russia over Israel would go over like a lead balloon with most Americans.

          • Hrky75

            …and since when does the US establishment care what the people think… And how will the regular US citizens express their anti war feelings – you think CNN will cover unbiased a genuine anti war movement without branding them – Russian trolls…remember how many standing ovation did Bibi get last time he spoke in Congress… US people are “represented” by pay-to-pay corrupted individuals and AIIPAC is doing most of the paying…

          • RichardD

            Obama tried starting a war with Syria over the chemical weapons false flag. And the public opposition at legislative offices was overwhelming and almost unanimous. The incumbency is into getting reelected all of the Jew money and media lies won’t do that if they have massive public opposition to what they’re doing.

          • Hrky75

            …to be honest it was the opposition in the UK Parliament that prevented Obama to start war, because he would have had to go in alone…But Mad Dog Matiss and all of the US ex-generals that serve as diplomats now don’t give a rats ass about UKs or anybodies support. They want to take on the whole world alone – nuking the opposition along the way. That’s why they’re pushing the whole “winnable nuclear war” story and policy of nuking even non-nuclear enemies with “low-yield” ordnance…And the news US public is receiving is – Russian collusion, Trump sleeping with a porn star and feminism…US citizens are officially in the state of war with at least 8 countries plus a few dozen NGOs without having a clue about it…

          • RichardD

            Trump won 85% of the land and counties with America First, not Israel first. That hasn’t changed, Trump has. Most Americans have had it with the Jews and their neocon insanity.

          • Hrky75

            …even if Trump was genuine during elections the deep state made sure he’s occupied with Russia Probe and constant MSM attacks to make good on it…And US elections come every 4 years when people can choose between 2 wings of the same party…Most Americans have had it with the Jews and Neocons but are powerless to do anything about it. The elites made sure that policy is swayed by amounts of cash so large that regular people don’t have a chance to take part in decision making process. Haim Shabban for example – can and does…

          • RichardD

            The midterms are every 2 years, and whether it’s gun rights or America First, if it’s important enough, it overrides the Jew’s control grid. But they regroup and reassert their control. They need to be gotten rid of.

          • Hrky75

            …you can organize elections every 2 months and it still wouldn’t make any difference. How much does it cost to get elected to a State Congress – 500 grand? So you need at least 5 million to get to Federal Congress. And if you manage to get there without having to bring down an incumbent that’s already bought by Zio cash, they give you a pledge to sign that you’ll always vote in Israel interest. And funny part is – it’s all completely legal. Imagine having Congressmen sign a pledge they’ll always vote in environment or anti global warming interests – big money would find a way for Supreme Court to make it unconstitutional somehow. But creating laws to benefit a foreign country and getting millions in return – is patriotic somehow…

          • RichardD

            The baby rapers just had a bunch of their planes shot up over Syria, I don’t see the US doing a thing about it.

          • nshah

            To summarized it.. Putin are always in bed with that psychopath nut&yahood..!
            Most would only look and observing Dumper trumps inner circles but not Putin’s.. which are of the same kind..!

          • Hrky75

            No. Putin decided to take action in the Middle east in order to support Russian allies and to defend Russian interests. In order to avoid a world war he uses his military might as well as diplomacy to achieve his goals. And that means talking to everyone. For example in mid 1980s Hezbollah kidnapped some Russian diplomats and KGB kidnapped in turn some Hezbollah operatives and started mailing their body parts to the HQ until they released the Russians. And today Putin arms and trains sons of those Hezbollah people. Not because they like Hezbollah, but because it’s in Russian best interest to have strong Hezbollah in Syria and in Lebanon. And strong Hezbollah is the biggest Israeli nightmare. You really thin that Bibi’s friend would arm, supply and train Hezbollah? Russia turned the tide in Syria spending relatively small amount of money and with few casualties operating from a strategically disadvantaged position compared to the rest of the actors. And they are still the only side that can say they are winning…

          • nshah

            Yeah.. after almost to 4yrs when all the major infrastructures damaged then only he decided to help..?
            Russia only started when they knew the war which Syria had been fighting will escalate into Russia that would jeopardized Russia’s national securities..! and of course to save guard its port and base in Syria..!

          • Hrky75

            Don’t be thick. Who was sending ammo and replacement hardware for 4 year. And don’t forget that Assad was controlling 70%+ of territory in 2014 and that included Idlib. He had all the “moderates” on the run to the point that even western media declared war over and Assad winning. But when Zios invented ISIL and stared pouring billions into Al Qaida Russia reacted in less the a year – which is about the time you need to plan this kind of complex operation…

          • nshah

            Hello.. the war started in 2011..! by 2014.. most of the major infrastructures are gone..! before 2014 there’s only Hezbollah and the Iranians helping covertly at start and Russia participates in 2015..! This scenario is exactly like Libya except in terms of Syria Russia decided to participate due to national securities or maybe as a testing grounds for their new weapons to sell.. not sure which one though..lol..! hehehe.. but the facts is.. Russia does not give priority to ally like the Yankees does even when their allies are terrorists..!

          • Hrky75

            It’s Russia that railroaded Obama and screwed up his plan to pull off Libyan scenario in Syria in 2013. If it wasn’t for Russia no amount of Iranian or Hezbollah support would’ve make any difference. Russia is a bear, but much smaller then Soviet union ever was. And Putin is playing the New Great Game better then any Soviet leader ever did – apart from Stalin, maybe. He is well aware of Russian limitations and strengths and manages to counter most of US moves with ease…

          • alejandro casalegno

            Hrky75. i did read a lot of reports, but……….exists a DIRECT connection between Russia and Hezbollah in Syria????

          • Hrky75

            There were reports of Russian instructors being in bedded with Hezbollah units. But even coordinating major operations with Russian officers served as a military university for Hezbollah officers. In addition Hezbollah received a lot of hardware Russia delivered to SAA without Moscow protesting even just for the record…

          • alejandro casalegno

            Hfky75. Thanks man. I read reports of the Spetsnaz and the Hezbollah SF, The “Radwan” regiment fight side by side in Aleppo, if are true, is the best “school” for the resistance!!!

          • Hrky75

            Just imagine Russians teaching Hezbollah ATGM and light arty use combined with small drones recon and targeting. And then imagine IDF walking into ATGM and mortar fire 10x as deadly and effective as the one they experienced in 2006…

        • nshah

          yesss.. You’re damn right..! Straight to the point..!

      • YOoo

        Russia is a friend and ally of Israel.

        • Hrky75

          …then why does it keep thwarting Israeli plans in Syria for the better part of this decade…Russia doesn’t officially brand any country as an “enemy” or an “adversary” – but partners – and that includes even US and Ukraine…That doesn’t mean they don’t defend their interests against their “partners”… That’s how grown up countries possessing professional and capable diplomatic service behave…

          • YOoo

            Russia has its own interests in Syria, contrary to Irans support to Hizbullah. But Russia would never infringe on Israels security threat as they try to do to the US, such as meddling in US politics. My point is Russia would be more committed to Israel than to Assad and Iran.

          • YOoo

            Russia did assist Assad in downing the American made F-16, but that move was against the US for assisting rebels in downing the Russian SU-25. It has more to do with arms trade. Russia just found the perfect time and Israel will probably forgive Russia and move on.

    • nshah

      They’ll starts calling us all anti Putin.. just because our brains works perfectly.. I think Putin is Semitic now.. lol..!
      I’ve commented something like your statesments too..! Where most of the advanced weapons are in the wrong hands which are not even an ally..! Hehehe.. so much for their putinist.. lol

  • Hrky75

    It’s on boys and girls and it could escalate rapidly. Zios will try and blitz Syrian AD network with massive strikes and try to intangle US too.

        Israel or NATO does not have to like Russia, so long they get what they want and this is what counts. Putin has been fool many times by Israelis and Americans already. So, what is the point for Syria to Russia alliance if enemy still bomb Syria at will from all sides

      • Vauxhall Astra

        Look very friendly to eachother.

  • George King

    Lets be clear, this is a regional war on many fronts and with Israel pushing aggressively into Lebanon’s border and oil/gas in the Mediterranean plus incursions into their airspace to launch attacks I see a dangerous development coming. With the ability to take out the once thought invincible Patriot Air Defense System on the cheap by swarming drones and scud missiles it is a new day of realities coming home to roost and soon. This is why Israel is in panic mode over Iranian drones capabilities.

    Israel can tolerate ISIS observing them, (ISIS control along the Golan) but not observation from the Iranians?

    • Eskandar Black

      those are domesticated ISIS, like a rabid pet raccoon.

        Well it is impossible to beat israel and they’ll call their buddies the US

        • Steve Bell

          Call? Sure, go ahead… call Trump or Pence, but don’t expect the U.S. military to follow their directive in attacking Iran. Trump already tried, and Mattis refused (still some sane people in the U.S. military who don’t want a nuke war with Russia). That’s why Netanyahu’s desperate to get Putin onside, or at least off-field.

          • Vauxhall Astra

            how do you know they tried to invade iran?

          • Steve Bell

            Even the Washington Post stated it- that Mattis refused a directive from Trump to provide him with options to attack Iran. There’s a report in Sputnik on it, with the link to the Washington Times article.

          • Eskandar Black

            I agree with you, its total trash. Trump does like Israel but doesnt make sense for him to attack Iran after he critisized George Bush for attacking Iraq.

          • Steve Bell

            Trump takes his cues from his cash cow, Adelson, who is a “bomb Iran” aficionado.

          • Eskandar Black

            I think its wrong to think of Trump as takes cues from, but I do think there are people who are more or less influential in his view. The situation in syria is going to quickly and wildly escalate in Syria one day soon, and mr. Adelson may get his wish.

  • That Guy

    Fuck yeah !!!!. Bravo Syrian air defense forces !!!!!!!!

    • Eskandar Black

      Hopefully, this action results in regional stability as oppose to escalation.

  • Steve Bell

    Good news. Now the IAF can expect losses instead of free rides into Syria.

    • Eskandar Black

      Big deal for Israel, but they wont be caught of guard again. Next attack will come tomorrow, just missiles from their side of the border, you will see.

      • Steve Bell

        Tomorrow has come, and still no action (other than hot verbiage). So what did Tilly say to Netanyahu when he called him after Putin warned him not to “escalate”?

        • Eskandar Black

          I think everyone wants to avoid a full scale fight.

    Jew terrorist filth launched a MASSIVE series of strikes on Syria AFTER Putin met the ‘king of the jews’ and once again pledged Russia’s undying servitude to Israel. Trump’s massive strikes against the SAA also followed this act of ‘diplomacy’ by Putin.

    Don’t people here understand how Putin’s constant knee-bending to world jewry (and their wahhabi blood brothers) can bring nothing but disaster to Greater Humanity?

    It is the pattern of jewry across the ages, always being the tiniest of minorities, to ‘test’ the host to see exactly what the host will tolerate- and then use that intelligence to maximise societal and military jewish terrorist operations. Today world jewry is armed with a massive arsenal of WMD systems, including nukes (and the means to deliver them, thanks to the slave germanic tribes) and biological weapons designed to spread genocidal plagues. And unlike other forces in possesion of such demonic toys, the jews constantly boast of their immediate willingness to use them under ANY circumstance that jews determine mean that jews are losing their grip on their hosts.

    Since WW2, even the most lowly of the jews have been safe, secure and given direct access to the manipulative wealth generatng mechanisms of the higher jews. NO POSSIBLE interpretation of ‘self defense’ can be applied to any act of jewish violence since WW2. Instead word jewsry has worked to be pro-actively violent at the highest and most dangerous order- with all great acts of organised jewry designed to increase the capacity of jews to do massive violence to other ‘tribes’.

    In fairness to world jewry, this malignant behavious has been active ENCOURAGED by the Russians, the germanic people and the anglo-saxon world. The West, in particular, reconquered the Middle East using the growing depraved evil of Israel and Saudi Arabia. And Russia chose to go along with this- and still does today.

    The biggest problem of Israel, being the ‘head’ of world jewry, is that Israel is a literal “mad dog” with a philosophy that jews have a destiny to rule over and enslave greater Humanity. This ‘enslavement’ is of a modern form- a master/servant relationship where rules do not apply to the ‘master’ and the servants exist only to enrich the lives of the ‘master’.

    So mad dog Israel literally believes it has the right to inflict any level of violence on any people anywhere on the planet for any cause that makes ‘sense’ to world jewry. Read ‘Mein Kampf’ and you’ll see whose philosophy they have adopted lock, stock and barrel since WW2.

    At this precise moment the form of this demonic tribal belief system is that “jews must always come out on top, and be seen by the lesser to come out on top”. At a time of growing AGGRESSIVE WARFARE (the supreme crime against Humanity) by the Deep State, this attitude is the constant spark that promises to trigger a growth of terrible hot wars across the region.

    Remember, the current jewish bloc in Israel is gagging to lay waste to Lebanon, and murder upwards of ONE MILLION innocent humans there. The jewish war plan has been published in major jewish publications in Israel for more than two years now- just as the exact details of the last Gaza holocaust were discussed for a similar period in Israel before it happened.

    Why does Putin work harder at APPEASING Israel than at any other Russian foreign policy? Why do people on our side bend over backwards to excuse Putin’s appeasement acts?

    • Steve Bell

      One would’ve expected Israelis to chuckle at the naivety of evangelical VP Pence, another pliable xtian to be used by his kosher masters. BUT, after watching the video of a zionist calling himself “Amir” posted in this thread, where he looks forward to the “end of times”, it seems Israel isn’t short of fanatic religious lunatics either. Armageddon is what they anticipate, with Trump as a tool to make it happen. So far, ironically, it’s been mad-dog Mattis (the butcher of Falujah) who’s been restraining Trump by not following his directive to provide him with options to attack Iran. Putin probably sees the danger in all of this, and also prefers to continue living on Earth instead of being vaporised into the clouds, together with most of humanity. In the end, the only one that knows what Putin’s thinking is Putin himself- and if these crazies push it to the limit, he’ll most likely oblige them.

    Russia still sells the S-400 system to anyone who wants it including NATO forces of Turkey, but will not sell the S-400 system to their true ally Syria or Iran or Lebanon.
    Something tells me that some of Russia’s highest Military and Politicians are paid off by Mossad.

    • Eskandar Black

      Syrians have the S200 with russians radars and new missiles its similar in capability. Nato forces of Turkey get the S400 in name only to upset their american and european allies and boot them from nato for good.

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        If S-200 with new missiles was similar, then Russia would have sold that to China haha.
        You cannot fool me, S-400 would have downed a dozen Israeli aircraft by now.
        S-200 has downed just one.
        Bit difference between S-400 and S-200.
        And Turkey is getting the real thing, they are getting a full array of S-400 systems.

  • Ricky Miller

    These older air defenses are no match for modern fighter planes operating in groups with EW assistance. If President Putin were serious about defending the UN Charter and the International order it prescribes, as well as defending Syria’s security in that legalized world order he would equip and train the Syrian government forces with s-400’s. Simple as that. The Russians want this war on the cheap, while still remaining friends with Israel and “partners” with the USA. It’s just not so, though. Both Israel and the USA are in cahoots to divide and destroy as much of Syria as they can and are working to weaken Russia’s position there. Pretend all you want, Kremlinites, but your restraint is inviting attacks and beginning to make Russia look weak.

    Bottom line: you can have able and brave pilots and soldiers, an educated defense industry, advanced tech and capable equipment but if you display a lack of resolve in defending your interests and goals none of the former matter. All your adversaries see is weakness. So, they bite at you. And here we are…

    • goingbrokes

      “…beginning to make Russia look weak.”
      Compared to the US, NATO and Israel, Russia is weak! But even from a position of weakness they have prevented a total collapse of the Syrian State. Last thing Russia wants is a shooting war with the western military machine. They can defend themselves perfectly well, but a war would be the worst move in a game of many bad options.

  • Ermir Shala

    Bull’s eye :) this is just beginning, next Israel regime will be bombed like they have done in decades to other countries.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    Israel attacked Syria to protect FSA/HTS to be defeated( under the excuse of an Iranian drone)…the same case in Deir Ezzor when USA killed around 50 SAA&NDF soldiers with the excuse that troops were attacking them!…Putin should stop “looking in the mirror” and be thinking about presidential election or world football cup…and allow SAA to attack with ground to ground missile Israel position and Al Tanf!…and after that close air space with S-400…..otherwise terrorist allies will never allow their defeat!

    • nshah

    I’m hoping the proximity damage and kill on the IAF came via Mobile SAMs near Golan.
    Better even if Iran has sneaked in a few of their own Mobile SAM units.
    That would freak Israhell and US out.

  • SnowCatzor

    Well well well, I wondered how long before the Israeli’s luck at dodging Syrian missiles would hold out. There have been so many near-misses or reports of damage in the past, but never a full shoot-down. The Israeli’s only have themselves to blame for this, they keep attacking Syria and expect no one to challenge them. But it doesn’t work like that.

  • John D.

    The problem is, neither Russia nor Syria nor Iran have the military means for an effective counterstrike against Israel or US. So it will always be careful warning and supressed retaliation in the hope of avoiding an all out war. Personally I think this is all part of Israels preparation for the planned war against Lebanon. Their big adversary is Hisbollah and they wan’t to weaken it’s allies before they go ahead. They want the no. 9 oil and gas field of the Lebanese coast. They want to destroy Iran, balcanize Syria and control all water resources in the Middle East. They want to prevent a Palaestinian state and keep the Russians and Chinese out. Unfortunatly, they can’t have everything. And with US dwindeling influence they might end up fighting with only Jordan, UAE and Saudi Arabia as coalition of the willing.

  • Hide Behind

    TAKE A LOOK AT MAP!Israel has over 100 aircraft, that from takeoff to bond drop time would be no more than 20 minutes, round trip under 60; By time air raid sirens went off in Damascus you would not find a human standing.
    The Jewish and Israeli , and U S Bastardized Christian Zionist will yell out scriptural prophesy to back up their actions
    RUSSIANS WILL SAVE THE FEW 400’S TO DEFEND THEMSELVES.
    ONCE FIRED BEFORE THEY CAN RELOAD THEY WOULD BE HIT ONCE AGAIN.
    Israel has over 150 replacement fighter craft just sitting on Eastern US military bases, with pilots that can get Refueld by US and EUro aircraft.
    ONCE more let me State neutron warheads are legal. They are even considered “more humane” by f’tard UN.
    Israeli aircraft flying Syrian markings nuke a part of Yemen.
    Google it, and then listen to the dumb f’tard backwards Yemeni babbling in glee.
    GET INTO REAL WORLD, one where there are no rules or legalities because they who made the laws and rules, white Brit, European Nations and US, do not have to listen to your pitiful bleetings.

    • A jet wont fly itself without a trained pilot .. IAF have limited number of pilots even if it can replace damaged/destroyed jets.. it got even less helicopters to sustain a real war , as witnessed in 2006 war where IDF forbid helicopter operation over hezbollah held area after they lost a lot of helos including a CH53 Yashur helo killing the female crew inside.

      Israel are propagating the myth of IDF superiority based on IDF old performances during war with Egypt and Syria back then.. The last war IDF got involved was in 1980s when they invade lebanon , even then it failed and have to retreat in defeat.

        Here is a factor of dual citizensjip IsraelI_Jewish men snd women within US military active and inactive;: Come a war cry from Israel those people get extended leave time to go and aid Israel.
        One reason no American ship went to aid U S S Liberty received no aid from US Mediteranean Fleet, was that on board our largest carrier were replacement planes with Israeli markings. Sen McCain’s dad was on board that carrier as Fleet Admiral.
        Later he was part of Naval Intelligence the highest security branch in US.
        US and Israel thought Arab resistance, even with Israel’s First Strike sneak attack, would be far more formidable than it was.
        No military air power in world has but 1 or two pilots per plane.
        LOOK UP JANE’S AND ALSO WORLD SECURITY WEB SITES.
        If Israel was to go full combat US would be right in there to insure Israeli succesS.
        There is at present a very large US/Israeli Air Base in Israel.
        Another interesting fact on USairpower, Foreign Nationals fly in joint combat in US planes.

          And with all that military superiority the U.S. lost in Vietnam. Now, with China and Russia’s hypersonic glider tech 5 years ahead of the U.S. and about to be deployed, your military superiority will go the same way as your war-addicted economy… down the gurgler.

            Am of old Irish ancestry in US, 1660’s, and Grew to manhood listening to relatives that served from Spanish American WEI until my and father, stepfather cousin and brothers who all served at same time in country of Vietnam, but being honest to a fault being family’s male trait, I was told of the downside of wars effect upon men.
            All told tales of unmanly acts an actions they partook of, and damned the men who started and led the wars.
            My knowledge covers over 100 years of family militar, political and selfsuficent ndependent thinkers , and I know they would damn this nations rulers, military and most of populace mindsets of today
            So I study its foreign and domestic war loving populace who are actually cowardly, and only by a realy huge and catastrophic defeat could their eyes be opened and hearts as well.
            IMO that cannot happen. And I hope yo never being proven right or wrong.

        • it is reassuring to hear american soldiers willing to die for the israeli govt… it must be in their oath when they joined the US military ? to defend israel with their lives ?

          ahh USA . what a great country , totally willing to be subservient to a little dot on the middle east who practice genocide against the native people of the land..

  • A military that for decades have been operating against insignificant and unsophisticated enemy , would be instantly surprised when it met even a litttle resistance from the opposition, How long since Israeli Air Force have to fight and face real enemy that can fight back ? maybe in the 1980s lebanon war against outclassed syrian air force who got only old jets facing IAF’s modern american-supplied jets..

    Israel military been fighting unsophisticated insurgets and unarmed civilians with overwhelming force , and brag / boast their military ‘effectiveness’ based on their past wars where IDF faced real military. IDF today is just a shell of it’s previous IDF..

    You can find plently of people who believe in the myth of IDF as superior military.. spread by the media propaganda.. and these people cannot accept truth and fact about over-rated IDF because their mind are confined by this delusional mighty IDF and to accept fact would shake their mental stability , and suffer cognitive dissonace..

  • politicaljules

    Another reason there was no russian collusion. We support Israel. Russia does not.

    “Russia’s foreign ministry appeared to criticize Israel’s actions by saying it was “absolutely unacceptable to create threats to the lives and security of Russian servicemen.”

    If Israel shot down a drone that came from Syria, Russia needs to denounce Syria, not Israel.

    And if there was Russian collusion, dont you think they would use us against Israel?

    • Steve Bell

      Russia may denounce Syria if/when Syria starts behaving like Israel, which is highly unlikely. Israel’s loss-free bombing raids into Syria are finished, and its warplanes will be downed in increasing numbers as Syria’s AD improves.

    Looking at the crash site, something doesn’t quite add up. We have an elevated road (M-w service?) with crash barriers. Foto taken from a more elevated position, M-w perhaps? 2 erect stainless steel light poles. A possible 3rd on the right of the foto lying alongside the chain-link fence, uprooted from it’s concrete bed? Overhead cables which run on the far side of of the light poles that we see. Surely cables would be severed and light pole severely distorted or severed rather than being uprooted, if the apparent pole is what it looks like. F-161 debris suggests pilot in full control, who executed a near stall crash landing, hence, no severed overhead cables.(however, we are told pilot is in a critical condition). So, what is the pole doing there? Foto 1.4MB, taken by an approved source as facial images of army and highland police personnel are distorted….
