US Navy Moves Destroyers And Subs With Hundreds Of Cruise Missiles Closer To Syria

Illustrative image

The US Navy is creating a strike group with hundreds of Tomahawk cruise missiles for a possible attack on Syria.

One of the US Navy guided-missile destroyers, the USS Donald Cook [up to 60 Tomahawks], has already drawn attention to its actions in eastern Mediterranean. According to reports, it has recently deployed too clsoe to Syria and has been “harassed” by Russian warplanes.

The USS Carney [up to 60 Tomahawks] is also deployed somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea, while the USS Porter [up to 60 Tomahawks] is somewhere en route to or already entered it. Another guided-missile destroyer, the USS Laboon [up to 60 Tomahawks] is also somewhere near the Mediterranean Sea.

These four guided-missile destroyers together have up to 240 Tomahawk cruise missiles.

Considering that the USS Georgia [up to 154 Tomahawks] and USS John Warner [up to 12 Tomahawks] nuclear submarines are also deployed in the region, the US Navy could have about 406 Tomahawks, which could be used to “defend democracy” somewhere in the region.

In another indication of a possible upcoming attack on Syria, US President Donald Trump has canceled his trip to South America. As the White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated on April 10 that the US president “will remain in the United States to oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world.”

Meanwhile, American newspaper Stars and Stripes quoting the United States Navy (USN) statement reported that the USS Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group would depart Naval Station Norfolk on April 11 to deploy to the Middle East and Europe.

Fox News producer Lucas Tomlinson almost immediately reacted:


According to the USN, “the aircraft carrier will be accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy and the guided-missile destroyers USS Arleigh Burke, USS Bulkeley, USS Forrest Sherman and USS Farragut. The destroyers USS Jason Dunham and USS The Sullivans will join the strike group later”.

The warships’ mission will involve “maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts alongside allies and partners,” and they will “provide crisis response capability and increase theater security cooperation and forward naval presence” in the Europe and Middle East, the statement said.

The SS Harry S. Truman will replace the USS Theodore Roosevelt, operating in the Western Pacific. Where would shape the USS Theodore Roosevelt its course now? If the US prepares for a full-scale “multinational” invasion to topple the Assad government, the answer is clear.

It is the first extended deployment for the Harry S. Truman since it wrapped up a 10-month maintenance period last July. The Truman strike group traveled to the Middle East in 2015 to participate in the anti-ISIS operation.

Stars and Stripes wrote that “it remains unclear what the upcoming strike group deployment might entail”, emphasizing that Donald Trump claimed he would pull out the US forces from Syria and that other regional countries should continue the campaign against ISIS.

Amid the deteorating situation between the world powers over Syria, the destination point of the SS Harry S. Truman will be one of the indication revealing the cource of the current developments.

    I hope there are Russian subs in the med

      There are.

      plenty

    • Wolfgang Wolf

      and a lot of EW appliances. a bear doesent bark …

    • frankly

      Submarines are very stealthy until they start shooting off ordinance, i.e. cruise missiles. We used to say there are two ships in the navy, submarines and targets. Too bad the poor kids from the states are sitting ducks, just once would like to see some of their psycho bosses take a hit. As for the Russian subs, they were always in the med.

  • Redadmiral

    These destroyers have been hanging around the Med for quite sometime and were utilised last year when their Tomahawks failed. The subs are in the western Pacific and will make a horrendous underwater explosion and poison the western Pacific when Russian cyber warfare returns their Tmks to sender. If it is 4 seconds to Midnight then 4 seconds earlier it is Midnight somewhere East of wherever. The saber rattling is reaching a crescendo………..

  • Leon Auguste

    Why weren’t all these ships and subs deployed in the fight against ISIS? Smh

    • chris chuba

      LOL good point, or against Al Qaeda, the enemy hidden in plain sight.

      • Wanklord

        Putin cheerleaders & russophiles who wander around this blog are looking stupider by the hour:
        Russia will simply limit itself to provide necessary protection to the military installations under their control in Syria in the event of a US/NATO strike (specifically Tartus Naval facility and Khmeimim Airbase); however, these Russian installations are not the targets nor will American cruise missiles or coalition fighter jets fly over those areas. Moreover, the Russian military won’t provide any tangible assistance to Assad forces, Russian mercenaries, IRGC or Hezbollah since that was not part of the Kremlin strategy for such scenario (in a few words, they are on their own).

        • Bob

          I think you are right, though I wish it was a different story.
          Russia will most likely only defend Russians in open service to Russia, and Iran and Hez and SAA are truly on their own.

          Wanklord, whats happening? Backpedaling a little? Get ready scum. We’re ready. https://youtu.be/ehHCoWMkCvM If sh$t hits the fan we’ll find your kind wherever you hide. Are you ready?

        • Catch-22

          Your are rather the Optimist, Playing the Rationalist or other!

          First position, you cannot defend your position – with 3 forces coming on you to 4. ( The amount ships moving in signal a massive hit)

          Second Position this not about Assad as it is with taking the cake, all of it! Russians included than Iran: ( The war party my see this as the last chance to hit and take it all- I am seeing hit all) No safety in that battle seen, only fight or die

          Third Position, Israel wants not only Syria’s land but Lebanon water and land (AGENDA) this could be the move, and looks like it is

          Forth, Position, Take out Iran, and Russia if necessary

          So your thoughts of them saving their own ars by playing defense – are wrong, in that if they allow the hit, which is to be a big one their done, or the next phase will be on.

          ===========War with Russia Approaching

          No sign this morning of Washington coming to its senses. Zero Hedge reports that Trump is canceling his trip to Peru’s Summit of the Americas in order to oversee the US attack on Syria. If the attack is real and not merely a hit at an unimportant target for PR effect, war could be upon us.

            Lebanon is the israeli nightmare, in the first invasion 1982 they have more casualties than in other war (Exception Yom Kippur 73), In the second Hezbollah stop israelis. Lebanese people allied with Assad, and anti-zionist feeling will revive.

          • Catch-22

            Yes, but you see, in this case they will flatten the area: rain all sorts of bombs and worse… they may not take it out right but will leave a smoldering hell of the dead –they do not care how this is seen – genocide or barbarism

          Figments of your imagination
          One thing, you simply fire away what you think without substantiation .

          Russia has readied planes armed with anti ship Missiles.

          Let’s see if a ship is sunk.

        • No, the Russians will just kill all the Opposition and the US will be in no position to respond to them either. The front line will not change at all, all this will do is increase casualties on all sides.

          So you can’t get more stupid than that.

          Whatever the US and west will do, it will not change the course of war.

          The rest will be the usual blathering.

        • Sebastian Vicente

          And what are the targets? Airbases? Army camps? The options is to kill civilians in Damascus, Hama, Homs, Aleppo. Or they want to support rebels and get “mobility kill” (Libia-Gaddafi but they stop forces from Tripoli to Benghazi, is not the case in Syria)

      • jerry hamilton

        The Russian navy have been very active against ISIS

    • Rob

      The butchers Trump, May, Macron are the mouthpieces of Netanyahu want that Assad should not fight these terrorists because they are working as Washington have told them.
      They want to wash whole land of Middle East with blood and Russia does not like this. As an honour Russia will defend whole Middle East.

      • Rob

        In the Muslim world nobody discus the issues of Syrian, Iraqi, Palestinian, Yemenis and so many other countries in the world. That is why its so easy for US and UK to take out a Muslim country one by one. Still the world population is behind money, cricket and football.

        • Icarus Tanović

          Have you ever heard AMerica will do this or that if Saudis doesnt stop usin WMD Cholera against YEMEN?

    • The war “against” ISIS by the Axis of Evil of France, UK, US (FUKUS) was always a deception intended to obscure FUKUS’s true agenda. To turn Syria into another FUKUS “success” story like Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, Kosovo. When the agenda is corporate profits uber alles Vietnam can be included as another success.

      • Icarus Tanović

        Vietnam fukus theirs France USA assses.

    • Rob

      Putin should establish no fly zone over Syria for illegal intruders. Without wasting time, from now Russia should choose the targets in Israel, in UK, in US and in the sea. This war could be nuclear.
      Putin should be stood up otherwise the consequences for Russia would be worst than Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. If Russia win then US, UK and France may break and Israel may dismantle.

      • Icarus Tanović

        This War can turn Nuclear.

        • wwinsti

          That’s a risk the Pentagram folks chose to take. I would skip theatre defense and start testing Yars missiles over US territory. They don’t have to carry warheads and you could give a 2 hour warning to the US region affected. It worked for Kim with Japan, it would certainly rase the stakes for Trump scandal addled US citizens.
          How do you like your news cycle now Maddow?

            Pantagram folks are pranksters and Hollywood – studio wanksterss.

      Now even use lame fake CW excuse even though most of Douma also surrendered.

      Assad should start hiding his Military now. Tomahawks can do nothing to the outcome of the war.
      Assad should even retaliate with their anti ship missiles

    • Nosferatu

      You know why

    • Melotte 22

      That would be like asking why is Russia not attacking Assad.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      They were prepping those ships for over a week nothing like being prepared for your own false flag event. Photos were really interesting of the woman in black her arm moved in 2 different releases of the pictures as one was carried on SMAART another by Fadi Abdullah both are available on YouTube. There was a deleted tweet by Elliot Higgins and still he couldn’t get the right building even after the White helmets posted it. This is a tragic comedy that will cost unnecessary lives , as we already can assume both sides have been prepping for weeks for this situation. Expect At Tanf to be struck along with other bases of NATO ion Syria and Iraq not allowing anymore US equipment to enter Syria illegally, as they will crush their daesh proxies and hunt them down as they already are.

      Sad 1 civilian was killed near the Syrian gas and oil fields as the US did a mock live fire exercise to cover up the evacuation of 3 Iraqi ISIS commanders and their families from the North Eastern Syria.

      Hopefully Russia really does knockout the West’s launch pads meaning all naval vessels will be targeted as they will be in Syria water when they launch , which is covered under Article 51 to use any means necessary to defend their country from a hostile attack of Hostile aggression of outside forces.

  • Daniel Miller

    good finally some target practice for Russian anti ship missiles.

    • Terence Silvestre Jr.

      Please, stop making false illusions and imagine things that will not happen friends of mine.
      It is more likely that a meteorite fall and sinks all the warships of the United States in the region that Russia does anything and not even the smallest effort to counteract and defend itself and much less its allies in Syria.
      If you do not believe me just watch and wait a few hours or couple of days.

      • chris chuba

        Or that the weight of the cruise missiles will sink the ships or might accidentally explode.

        While I believe the U.S. actions to be totally irresponsible, given that the Israelis did it without repercussions, I am inclined to believe you but you never know.

        • Terence Silvestre Jr.

          You made me laugh a little with your anecdote about the weight of the missiles, but we all hope that this time it will be different and everything will come out in favor of Russia and allies in Syria my friend.

      • Joe Doe

        If Russia does not acct or response, it will loose face and total respect. Russia will become punching bag and nothing more. Russia need to respond and respond with force

            That’s not about government. It’s about our existance. It’s a different mentality – when Russians go to war we already assume that we gave our life to Motherland. Do or die against our Die but do.

          • jerry hamilton

            Not with us. We don’t have to go to war.
            We do go to war to kill people in foreign lands.

          • zman

            Terence should provide reasons why he believes that Russia is lying. When has Russia reneged on a promise? When did they refuse to uphold their end of the deal they made with Assad? If the Russians are so unreliable, why is there no criticism from any Syrians? Why is Russia the target of the western Zionists if they are not to be taken seriously? Like I told Terence before…he has the right to his opinions (and that is all they are, NO facts), but I do not have to agree with them and I don’t.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            The answer to your question is obvious and totally proportional to its logic taking into account the following.
            A man ready to die fighting to defend his own life, his country or his family has twice the possibility of survival because he is double motivated and therefore twice as dangerous and will be proportionally feared and left in peace at the end of the day by all his enemies.
            And the opposite happens with the coward fleeing from the fight that has the double chance of being attacked and killed, by an enemy who has no fear of him, even if his enemy is as weaker and smaller than him..
            Then, of course I am ready to die for my country and for all the things that really are worth to me, my dear friend.

      • whatsmolly

        You are delusional mate, it would take a half an hour to fire all missles and only minutes for a Russia anti ship missle to the an American ship. Certainly they are trying to make enough noise to avoid this completely but it would be alot more effective to hit 1 ship and stop the whole salvo of missles, than to try and intercept them after launch.

        • Terence Silvestre Jr.

          Of the same about I’m speaking my friend, of the little possibility that Russia gets to shoot that anti-ship missile you’re commenting about, to protect its own soldiers and their allies in Syria. All that, to avoid any conflagration that leads to a nuclear conflict that I’m sure that will never happen, because of the fearfulness of Americans and European puppets, lovers of their comforts

      • mhtsaropinigitakis

        so you know about putins secret weapon…the meteorite attack!!

        • Terence Silvestre Jr.

          Yes, yes my friend, whatever.

      • Daniel Miller

        I am sorry but if the Russians dont the Syrians will since they actually have the capacety of sinking USN ships.

        • Terence Silvestre Jr.

          I hope you’re right, my friend, I hope.

      • zman

        I think you are wrong. The Russians have exhibited restraint and honor in the face of maximum provocations. It looks as though you and other take this as a sign of weakness, instead of restraint and a desire to refrain from more war. Unfortunately (or not) the west seems to have the same opinion. This will be their mistake. Russia has set a red line. This is a real red line that has consequences because it is based on actual events that may or may not occur…that part is up to the Zionists…ain’t that scary? But once the Russians say enough is enough and that they will in fact target missile sources, I for one believe them. They have always followed through on promises, unlike the west which uses statements as propaganda and water testing. What the west will actually do is unknown from minute to minute. The rational world knows what to expect from Russia because they say what they actually mean…not a lot of run around and vague innuendo leaving room to do whatever. Just going on past record of actions in this war on Syria, I do not believe you.

        • Terence Silvestre Jr.

          We will have to wait and see if you still think the same after the development and culmination of the events of the next days, my dear friend
          Because exactly there, more than at any other time, everyone will realize the true about Russia through their actions or lack of actions without the need to write or waste a single word more, I am afraid.

  • Art Best

    It’s too late now.

    Putin ordered Russian forces to stand down when Americans or Israelis attacked Syrian coalition troops.

    Putin always stopped the Russian Aerospace Forces from soundly defeating ISIS, pulling them back just when they were about to finish the Muslim terrorists off. How many times did Putin declare he’s pulling out of Syria in order to avoid eradicating ISIS?

    Putin is providing S-400s to the Turks who shot down Russian jets and killed Russian pilots. The Turkish President swore to do it again if he ever got the opportunity. Why isn’t Putin supplying S-400s to his ALLIES the Syrians? It’s because then the Syrians would be able to defend themselves effectively against the Israelis and the Americans.

    If ever the Russian military is able to retaliate and cause significant damage to NATO assets, it will be AGAINST and IN VIOLATION of the standing orders issued by Putin himself.

    Successful Russian military operations against the Americans and their allies can only come about as a result of revolt and MUTINY on the part of the Russian personnel serving on the ground in Syria and in Russia proper.

    Putin personally PREVENTED victory by Assad’s coalition everytime they were close to achieving this goal.

    Putin is a traitor.

    Any sane and effective military planner would immediately order preemptive strikes against ALL NATO-aligned military assets in the region because the Americans are yelling and screaming that they are coming to extract “a big price” from the Russians and the Syrians, leaving no doubt that they will strike. Russia could only hope to level the playing field by hitting first hard and causing massive damage to the NATO Coalition of Psychopaths for Russia is militarily much WEAKER than NATO and needs a head start to have a chance to prevail over her enemies. If Russians wait to respond as Putin has ordered them, they will lose this war.

    Both Russian forces on the ground in Syria (as distinct from, and NOT on the same side as the pseudo-Russian Jewish oligarchs sitting pretty in Moscow) and the Syrians themselves are screwed as things stand. The final nail on the coffin will be a betrayal by the Turks who will side with NATO just when the Russian, Syrian and Iranian forces will need them the most.

    The die is cast.

    The Americans and the Israelis will attempt to commit genocide in Syria and most likely succeed UNLESS cool-headed patriotic elements in the Russian army revolt and launch a preemptive strike against NATO (including Turkey, Israel and Saudi Arabia) after having deposed Putin and the parasitic Jewish oligarchs.

    BUT

    I don’t believe there’s a snowball’s chance in hell of that happening. The Russians are by now a neutered race of slaves whose real God is Vodka so much so that they can’t even make babies anymore.

    We shall soon watch Russia’s first resounding historic defeat unfold at NATO’s hands who will finally succeed where Napoleon and Hitler failed before.

    The fault lies with the Russians themselves for having coronated the crypto-Jew Putin as their virtual king after a century of rape, torture and mass murder that the Russians suffered at the hands of the Jewish Bolsheviks and their descendants like Putin and the Jewish oligarchs since 1917.

        Then, Putin has to be trampled by anyone without doing anything about, and all those sacrifices just to avoid the third world war?
        If everyone thought like you, the whole world will still be under the tyranny and hard slavery of a single enough brave tyrant today, without counting Russia itself that would still be under the yoke of some descendants or bastard grandson of of Hitler, and all that just to avoid the Second past World War, sure my dear friend?
        Only cowards use excuses when it comes to enforcing their rights and honors at the cost of their own lives if so would be required, only cowards.

        • João Leston

          Look at his position. China is not technically advanced yet in modern warfare, his allies are all recovering from something and Russia itself is still recovering from the cold war. On the other side we have a king without clothes (UK and USA) who are fighting for they’re old hegemony with all they got, while the Israelis profit from the situation. Russia has to be cautious.. and Putin has been rightly so, building up the country defenses and trying to pave the way to justify the new Russia as military world power. It takes much more guts to not pull the trigger, untill you really have to.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            Very wise in your last comment, objective and very logical too. I accept it and

            Thank you my friend.

      • Art Best

        You are peddling disinformation. Putin never tried to prevent WW by appeasing the Americans and the Jews.

        Putin is in cahoots with Netanyahu and the Zionist bankers.

        If Putin wanted to prevent WWIII, all he’d have to do is state that the first nuclear casualty of war will be Israel.

        Then it’d be all wine and roses from there.

        But Putin is a crypto-Jewish traitor.

    The US has bombed and killed hundreds of ethnic-Russians fighting ISIS in Syria already, launched over 20 Tomahawk missiles into Syrian air bases. Russia does not know how to simply make the decisions to sink enemy warships.
    All Israeli and UK and USSA ships must be seen for what they are, and that is hostile to all humans.
    Simpy sink them. Don’t ever open your mouth again Putin, be a man of action.
    Just sink the UK and Israeli fleets and do not talk about it.
    After USSA ally the UK and Israel are gone, the USSA will have no reason to hang around any-longer and will return home forever.
    As long as the UK and Israel exist, then the US has given reason to stay.

      “The US has bombed and killed hundreds of ethnic-Russians fighting ISIS in Syria already”

      strange that you decide to parrot the msm on this particular subject.

      “launched over 20 Tomahawk missiles into Syrian air bases”

      No, they launched 59 and most of them did not reach their targets. The syrian airbase they hit was operational less than 24 hours after the strike.

  • πανος

    Isreal best airforces in region and 3th of world while Russia has only 35 aiplanes in Syria…
    Usa is going with sixth fleet and 500 tomahow and many more…
    France is sending Rafale…
    British ll participate too…

    And against such a power what can Russia do?Nothing

    If NATO wants to attack ll attack,end of story

    If of course Chinese had balls and were in Syria active(not just sending 2.000men) now nothing of these would be happening

    To end that,my opinion is that NATO doesnt have to win many things ll a full strike so ll drop many tomahow and some bombs and then ll leave
    But we ll know tonight or next night about the hit

    • Rob

      If Washington and UK invade Syria then Israel will be completely wiped out from the surface of the earth by nukes. The Trump, May and macron crafts carears are in the sea will be destroyed for the good of this world. Turkey, Iran, China and Pakistan should keep their weapons ready. Iraq cannot help because Washington and UK have destroyed Iraq beyand recovery.

          If Syria invaded then the consequences for Russia will be worst than Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. Russia is a great power in the hands of a right leader. Saddam and Qaddafi both scared and that is why murdered.

    Looks like Americans learn lessen from last time and now they will use over 400 Tomahawk cruise missiles in order for the Russia Air Defense System no be able pick up most all of them. Russia made mistake not to provide S-400 for SAA control. This would offset some weight from Russian i Syria, which could protect itself

    • Icarus Tanović

      They deployed 50 Pantsirs, as you know, those missiles will fall into sea, or else.

    • wwinsti

      There literally aren’t enough S systems in the world to defend every square meter of all Moscow’s allies. The 300 Russia owns aren’t enough for Russian territory.

  • Jasminko Grdic

    MY only question on all of you is
    What will do Erdogan.
    He is the man of Hour. If he continue be Russia friend and Iran partner, and if he want to destroy Israel like he talks in the last few weeks.
    Then there could be a suprise for US coalition, because Turkey could send his Planes against this US/UK fleet and help Russia.

    Second is IRAN….they have Touhsend of Scuds…they are already on Tel Aviw and Rihad.
    China is I will i will not.
    But the Joker is KIM from Korea :))))

    Now I’m wondering if this is going to happen at all. Eurocontrol Air Traffic Network Ops ‘warnings’ for the Nicosia, Cyprus Flight Information Region (FIR) are a reliable indicator of MI6 trying to plant little pieces of a larger narrative they’re pushing out (along with their usual Five Eye crony intel/PsyOp thugs). They put out a news item, EASA Rapid Alert Notification for Eastern Mediterranean / Nicosia FIR area, a few hours ago on their Network Ops Portal here:

    https://www.public.nm.eurocontrol.int/PUBPORTAL/gateway/spec/index.html

    Can’t see the first version published three minutes before the current one shown here so no idea what they revised. There is no formal NOTAM for pilots about this, so this official-looking scary warning is just a convenient, talking head friendly Eurocontrol news tidbit for truthy news outlets like CNN and the NYT to ‘discover’ and parrot. In fact, it’s all ready making the rounds on Twitter …so it must be true!

  • Terence Silvestre Jr.

    So many ships with so many missiles inside them?
    Why I suspect that the recent Israeli attack was only to prove the defensive anti-air capability of Syria?
    Then being able the SAA to intercept 5 missiles of 8 or 62.5 percent of all fired, bastard americans will have to shoot a large number of tomahawks to saturate and exhaust the defensive air capacity of Russia and the SAA together, before taking over the syrian air space and be able to do whatever they want after,
    I think, or maybe I’m wrong in my logic.

    • Redadmiral

      Would expect Russia to use cyber warfare and new Manpad systems on Tmks and keep S400s for F22,s along with Pantair S1 & S2s. This will be as you expect all out so Iran will also be in the mix. Turkey have S 400s(Have Yanki eng. discovered weaknesses? Did Russia sell S400s with faults as decoys?) Israhell will no doubt be in the affray. Syria could not attack them as they were not in Syrian airspace. A 37% strike rate not great especially when above factors taken into consideration. Big Q: Who’s side is Turkey really on?

  • Vas.

    There is info that Russia asked today Iran to let them deploy some of their strategic bombers(probably Tu-22M3 and Tu-95) and II-78 air refueling planes to Iran’s 3rd tactical fighter base in Hamedan. And also use their base as refueling points for its fighter jets.

    Also there is some info that Russian bombers Tu-22M3s of the South military command spotted with cruise missiles loaded, Kh-55(range 3.000km) and Kh-101(5.500km), perhaps(my opinion) to retaliate on US bases in the ME area in case US proceed with the attack?
    Also they say some Tu-22M3 were loaded with the Kh-15 supersonic(5 Mach) antiship missile. That might be true since Tu-22M3s one of the its main roles which its designed for is to strike carrier groups, an antiship strategic bomber, it can carry up to 10 Kh-15.

  • Fred Dozer

    Really, why would chemical weapons team be headed to Syria, if attack is immanent ? Normal people would have to wait for test results. That”s the problem, USA has no normal people in charge. They did not believe the weapons inspectors in Iraq.(war was a planned, must) Saddam had all his weapons lined up for inspections ,and USA started the war a day earlier than promised. All’s fair in love and war.

  • Nigel Maund

    The plan is simple and by the way the usual one: 1) if you’re losing a war which the New World Order Zionists are, you initiate a false flag attack (ideally chemical or biological) using proxies; i.e. the White Helmets or ISIS, – Al Queda group of terrorist, which you created trained and armed; 2) get the mainstream media to demonise you enemy as the culprit and incite indignation amongst the electorate / readership; 3) organise your mass attack to punish the culprit and provoke the much desired wider war which may hopefully turn into a world war.

  • Nigel Maund

    Time for Russia to beef up Syria’s defences, especially air defences. This time many US, Israel and so called allied aircraft will need to be downed and Pantsir S, S200, S300 and S400’s used plus MANPAD’s or their equivalent. The cost of any NWO Military’s attack must be turned it a highly expensive exercise for them giving them a hefty bloody nose bringing them back to the negotiating table in a much weakened position.

  • Marcos Edder

    Russia can’t allow the western degenerates to use Syria as a farm for terrorists, take a look on a map, Russia southern front is Syria, NATO is surrounding the western front.

  • John Mason

    So what is NATO up to on Russian border? Waiting for this attack on Syria to commence their attack on Russia? Maybe Putin had no choice but to play for time to establish reasonable security for Russia but it looks more like that the West are going to send Russia back into the stone age.

    • Kell McBanned

      Id say the reverse is true.

  • Bob

    A major NATO strike on Damascus will not change the outcome of the Syrian war. The proxies on the ground have been steadily reversed, from their peak advances in 2015, and face inevitably collapse under ongoing major SAA offensives. This will not change. A NATO attack would just be a vindictive spoiler action – basically, bad losers having a violent tantrum along the lines of, what we can’t have we will destroy – with an aggressive intent to cripple Syrian urban infrastructure and target all government branches and services.

    • RichardD

      That’s the optimistic Jew world order neocon version. The real life version with a peer foe is that the attackers would receive what they dish out, with a lot of dead military personnel and destroyed equipment. Which wouldn’t be good for arms sales or elections.

  • Joe

    All SAA planes should go to safe places like under Russia’s protection or be air borne with anti ships missiles

  • Joe

    Russia is prepared and if permission given can sink one ship . Then the rest will quickly withdraw.Ships can never outshoot land nor damage land while ships can be sunk

    • electron

      RF doesn’t have to sink anything; Syria has the missiles that can get the job done!

  • Harold Smith

    I wonder what it would be like to be on a U.S. ship, knowing that you’re about to become a participant in an illegal, immoral, unconstitutional war of aggression, and also knowing that this time, not only might you not be going home, but your actions might result in a nuclear war which will destroy your country and kill your family back home.

    • They probably see it as “following orders”. They might imagine it is all Trump’s fault.

      Bewildered admiral Trump, after hearing that the US has lost ships and thousands of sailors are dead, will worry about his self-image and probably fire Bolton rather than ordering any more attacks, calling him a moron.

    Hasn’t Riyadh’s cash been the key enabler behind this decades long “saga”?

  • John

    It’s not enough firepower. The ships could be whacked in a hurry and then the US Navy has irreplaceable percentage points of available firepower at the bottom. The guys on those ships are probably shitting a brick and many quietly praying it does not start. Literally, one properly equipped Russian frigate could probably do most of the job. Further the Russian planes at the airbase have enough punch to sink that pool party without much trouble. I hope sanity returns and wish well to all.

    • PZIVJ

      Problem is tomahawks can launch at long range like last year.
      The ships can stay closer to friendly air “umbrella” than you are to them.
      Not sure why Donald Cook is cruising around like cannon fodder? :D
      I think calmer heads will prevail, wish well to all.

      • RichardD

        Not with long range hyper sonic anti ship missiles that no anti missile system can stop. Most European nations aren’t going to get involved, and Russia is close enough to counter any air umbrella in both quality and quantity.

        “3M22 Zircon[1][2] also sometimes spelled 3M22 Tsirkon (Russian: Циркон, NATO reporting name: SS-N-33)[3] is a maneuvering anti-ship hypersonic cruise missile developed in Russia.[4][5] Its latest successful launch was on June 3, 2017, almost a year earlier than had been announced by Russian officials.”

    The prospect of fierce escalation is growing real fast. Russia has just issued a sharp warning that it reserves the right to swiftly fire back if the lives of its servicemen in Syria were threatened https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201804111063428288-russia-military-syria-airstrike/

  • Ma_Laoshi

    Is there even something left to speculate over at this point. Moscow was *tested* by the IAF, and it failed that test with flying colors like all previous ones. The Russian leadership has not withdrawn their own families from enemy territory, so clearly they know there’s not going to be a major war. Putin has long retreated to his safe space, and probably frets much less about the Syrian war than we do here.

    • RichardD

      Russia is indisputably winning the war. The Syrian government footprint has grown massively since Russian intervention. Your anti Russian posts are garbage.

      • Ma_Laoshi

        With the Empire controlling 1/3 of Syria’s territory and 1/2 of its oil reserves, Russia is neither winning nor losing. With limited resources, Russia has indeed made admirable progress–against cheap disposable jihadi trash. It’s starting to look as if the Empire is not willing to allow Russia even such a semi-success, and sending in the cavalry. Shame on the Kremlin for failing to deter this adventurism long ago when the stakes were much lower.

        • RichardD

          You’re an irrational liar:

          “Russia is neither winning nor losing.”

          Russia is clearly winning, the Syrian government has gone from controlling 10% of it’s territory to controlling 70%, with a no fly zone over that 70% where Jew world order aircraft and missiles are routinely shot at and shot down. With manned aircraft increasingly rarely venturing into it.

          The cavalry isn’t even there, let alone being sent in. It would be the end of the Trump presidency, which is already on very thin ice, if he starts a war with the Russians. The last time a US president tried this, the public opposition coming into congressional offices was almost universally opposed:

          “About 60 percent of Americans surveyed said the United States should not intervene in Syria’s civil war, while just 9 percent thought President Barack Obama should act.”

    hey guys, is it correct that Russia’s fighter jets carry some kind of electronic weapon that are capable of knocking out entire systems of US ships? If so, i think even hundreds of missiles would become useless, after a low flight of a single jet above those ships.

Well it was enough, China steps in for protection in Syria, supplying and training SAA members, enough is enough from these western hypocrisy that just want to make Syria hell, they just hate progress over terrorism, they just want to see the world burn by their terror proxies.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    The US has studied the S-400 systems Putin sold to Erdogan and concluded they’re not as effective as the Russians have boasted they are and are now coming in force to prove it. This may just be the first phase of the operation though because it’s Erdogan that’s been promised the first real blow and WW3 won’t start until he plunges that dagger he’s been holding against Putin’s chest, in as deep as he can. When that happen the Turks, the French and the Brits will all be trying to kill as many Russians as they can and claim the bragging rights, and then the real fun will begin. The real fun begins with multiple fireworks display over parts of Turkey where the US owned fireworks are kept, and another one or two over the US base at Al-Tanf, but unlike other fireworks that only last a few seconds, these ones will last several hundred years. The Kurds will live happily ever after with President Assad looking after their every need and all those countries that have some borrowed US fireworks stored for safekeeping, will be giving them straight back to the US. WW3 is about to start and some of you still believe Erdogan is on Putin’s side. To all you morons that believe this is trolling or me not understanding the real situation we won’t have long to wait before we find out the truth one way or the other.

    • Kell McBanned

      Turks cant be trusted, wouldnt be surprised at all if they stabbed Russia in the back!

    • Raptar Driver

      Turkey has not yet received the S-400’s so there goes your theory.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        Delivery date July 2019, but the Russians have been training the Turks to operate them for a few months already and have supplied all the relevant specs and data as well. The Iranians were trained and given all the relevant data long before they received their S-300 systems and when it comes to selling sophisticated missile systems that’s the way it’s done. The Turks were aware of all the S-400’s capabilities and all it’s vulnerabilities even before the deal was signed and probably passed the info on to the US as soon as they could. Now the Turks have had a chance to study them in more detail they’ve possibly discovered even more vulnerabilities with the system and are currently working with the US to exploit them. Yes I know there has been no official acknowledgment of a technology transfer from Russia to Turkey and Russia has stated there never will be, just the systems themselves, but the US only has to be aware of it’s REAL capabilities and Vulnerabilities to effectively negate their threat, not how they work. And btw if Erdogan was really teaming up with Putin in a fight against the US, do you think Putin would really wait until July 2019 to deliver them. No they’d be there already set up and operational, and just waiting for the coalition jets to arrive, and for all I really know they might be.
        Yes it is just a theory and yes I might be wrong, but as I already said, we won’t be waiting too long before we find out one way or the other what Erdogan’s true intentions are.
