East vs West Confrontation: Russia warns ‘we’ll shoot down U.S. warplanes’ carrying out air strikes over Syria

October 2016DAMASCUS, Syria Russia has ordered the US not to carry out airstrikes on Syrian army positions, warning that sophisticated air defense systems are now up and running. Putin has ordered the deployment of S-300 and S-400 units in order to protect troops on the ground. And Russian army bosses have warned that the weapons’ radius may be ‘a surprise’ to unidentified planes, helicopters and drones in the area, according to Russia Today. Russia says it has deployed the anti-aircraft batteries because members of the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria are working “on the ground” delivering aid.
Russian Defense Ministry spokesperson General Igor Konashenkov, said: “Therefore, any missile or air strikes on the territory controlled by the Syrian government will create a clear threat to Russian servicemen. “Russian air defense system crews are unlikely to have time to determine in a ‘straight line’ the exact flight paths of missiles and then who the warheads belong to. “And all the illusions of amateurs about the existence of ‘invisible’ jets will face a disappointing reality.” General Konashenkov also said that Syria’s own air defense systems had been significantly upgraded over recent months.

The statement came soon after what Russia called ‘leaks’ suggesting Washington is considering airstrikes on Syrian forces. General Konashenkov added: “Of particular concern is information that the initiators of such provocations are representatives of the CIA and the Pentagon, who in September reported to the [US] President on the alleged controllability of ‘opposition’ fighters, but today are lobbying for ‘kinetic’ scenarios in Syria.” Coalition forces bombed Syrian government positions last month, killing 83 servicemen, according to Russia Today. Washington said the strike was a mistake while Damascus called it ‘blatant aggression.’  –Mirror

    Over 1/2 of Israel is under that missile umbrella.
    Would also hamper Israelis airstrikes against terror groups in Lebanon and against Syrian military targets and terror groups in Syria such as ISIS.

    With the deployment of These anti-Aircraft systems, it is a game changer in the Middle East.
    A new player has come in with the same capabilities as The U.S.

    As we have protected Israel with our military, Russia is protecting their ally with theirs.

    Let them have it. Because if we are targeting Syrian Military Forces, what is to say that The Russians may start targeting Israeli military targets. How many air fields does Israel have in the indicated protected area?

    There is a response. Harm missiles designed to seek out the radiation given off by the missile radar tracking units and ground force, special forces.

    In 1973, in the surprise attack, October 1973, The Israeli Air force lost over 400 planes to SAM fire. Not until ground forces entered the area and destroyed the missile radar sites and open a hole in the Air Defense shield were they able to conduct air to air and air to ground operations with success.

    The U.S. will blink or will we see Damascus destroyed?

    • Utopia: the Collapse says:


      Great analysis, Dennis. Given Russia’s new dogmatic military doctrine, I would not be surprised if Russia deploys nuclear weapons in Syria under the supervision of a permanently stationed Russian manned crew. That could have great implications for Israel. Let’s face it, Obama was played and outwitted by Putin – and there’s no going back from the Russian bravado and hubris. War is inevitable.

      For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1 Thess 5:3

      This certainly describes both the Neville Chamberlain and Kerry missions. War was being planned while the chief diplomats were choking on their own platitudes of peace.
