American pilots are not afraid of air defense in Syria

100
According to information RIA News, US Air Force General Charles Corcoran told online resource Military.com that the American pilots, citing the need for self-defense, in June requested permission to defeat Syrian military aircraft three times.

We are trying to reduce tensions. We are here to fight ISIS [a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation], but we will protect our forces from those who side with the Syrian regime.


June 18th American aviation shot down a Syrian Air Force Su-22, claiming the plane was dropping bombs on opposition troops. June 8 and 20 - Drones. After that, in his words, "defenseless aviation" - transport planes and tankers - were forced to leave the airspace due to the uncertainty of how Damascus or Moscow would respond.

American pilots are not afraid of air defense in Syria


Corcoran suggested that the frequency of similar cases will increase due to the loss of ISIS (prohibited in the Russian Federation) of their territories and the convergence of the positions of the United States, Syria and Russia.

At the same time, he reported that there were no concerns about the air defense of the American pilots.

The air defense works, but I do not think that our military feel the threat of ground-to-air missiles from the Russians or Syrians.


The relations of the parties, the general called "very warm, professional"

      And rightly so, why be afraid of what is not.

          "We are trying to reduce tension. We are here to fight ISIS [a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation], but we will protect our forces from those who support the Syrian regime.
          Is this not a declaration of US war - in the person of the Pentagon and bypassing US President Trump - against the SAR and its ally, Russia?
          It seems that Trump, as the president of the United States, with his refusal of presidential powers in favor of the Pentagon and the CIA will soon be completely superfluous in the USA!

            Of course for a long time. During the fighting in the BV, even the USSR, sending its own sodates into battle, knew that it could suffer losses. Opening fire on aircraft that do not pose any threat to the Russian Armed Forces, your air defense will be the initiator of the database.

                So above it was proposed to shoot down Israeli planes. I will not argue that this is entirely possible. But it’s one thing if the Syrians beat our car, and another thing if you. But in principle, this is up to your command.

                  The difference, in my opinion, is that the Syrians can bring down, and we can not. We have the strength and the words to persuade not to bully. And you obey and will behave normally.

In turn, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that if the Russian base in Syria suddenly ceases to exist on the initiative of others and with the use of force, this side is very at risk of ending its existence, at least a large part of it.

        it’s better to answer in Tatar and express a common opinion - "if we are hurt, we’ll be on us ... by and large ... and on exclusivity in particular. You will be beaten."

      It would be better if they provoked us less - spit on the ban some sort of senior officer will take responsibility, and will become there a couple-three less American planes sad

      The relations of the parties, the general called "very warm, professional"

      How do you like it? Purely American - first, from a personal desire to drop into the face, and then friendly pat on the shoulder, smile broadly and squeeze out: "Are we friends?"
      Regarding the existence of our base, I would like to answer to Mr. from Israel - less cock up on your sofa and be more adequate. People like you eventually cause hostility to all visitors to the site from your country.

        and in response you smile even wider and say of course we are friends

      The general called the relations of the parties "very warm, professional. How is it? On whose side is the warmth?"
      After the downed Syrian drones and Su 22? Strange people. Nobody wants to answer for the bazaar. The world is heading into the abyss.

      Americans and Jews are very sensitive to the potential threats of their precious skins. Therefore, the nasty beep of the indicator about the capture of you by the air defense search radar makes them interrupt the flight

      Because if such an attack occurred, then the Russian base would simply cease to exist.

      Yes, there would be nothing, Israel, as always, does not recognize the loss of an airplane.

      Hello, gentlemen, Jews who have been noted here, with all due respect to you, explain to me the village of the dense village that I do yours and American planes (other mongrels) in the airspace of a foreign (sovereign) state of Syria (only here it is not necessary to protect shit democracy). Is it legal from the standpoint of international law? When the shells fly into the disputed territory of the Dutch heights, the Assad army is automatically assigned the culprit, and a retaliatory strike is struck. Accordingly, why in the event of violation of the borders of a foreign state (in this case, Syria) and the commission of an act of aggression against its army (for example, a downed fighter and drones), a counterattack cannot be retaliated. The base say it will cease to exist in the event of a counterattack, well, well (I hope you understand the difference between a downed plane illegally, and do not argue, invading the territory of another state and a military base located legally). After all, some air defense systems are not located at the base itself. And about the inefficiency of our and Soviet air defense read here, refresh your memory:
      https://topwar.ru/31466-geroy-iz-egipta.html
      They shot down earlier and nothing.
      Israeli pilots are bold and courageous aces in the presence of several factors, such as surprise, numerical and technical superiority, the presence of relevant intelligence. And not in a one-on-one battle, when the outcome of the battle is not a foregone conclusion.
      And do not flatter yourself The Soviet army has never fought with yours. Your army fought with our individual units, which are not very numerous globally, and this was aggravated by politics, the indecision of some of our military commanders, unlike yours.
      PS You pursue your interests, We protect your own. Nothing personal.

      Well, due to the fact that the pilots have no fears of Syrian and Russian air defense, he bent it, the Americans are famous cowards, as soon as they receive a signal on their radars that they are in the air defense zone, they immediately change course and turn on the afterburner , and in the skills of piloting and air combat, they are inferior to us, they are even inferior to Indian pilots, because they studied with us.

      he said that American pilots had no fear of air defense
      Why is it necessary to assert that it’s a good thing to know, knowing that every plane in the sky above Syria and even a little further is always at gunpoint?
      There will be an order to shuganut, or knock down, all the horochorism will evaporate. And you have to write a funeral in front of the parents of the downed pilot. May God thank him for the absence of such an order.

      They are not afraid of air defense, yeah. Sitting in a chair with large shoulder straps. When the "ringing" from the 300th or 400th goes into a supershelmet, so fears will arise, 100 pounds. Only the establishment sons are not afraid. Mochilov not a single lieutenant-captain-major on both sides do not want, because they know what it is about.
      But these pontiers - SU-22 shot down the F-18-m. I, too, can kill an 80-year-old grandfather with a shovel. Why will I become a hero after that? You won the F-22 greyhound on the SU-35S. Why, a point is not a ferrum? Look, do not suffocate there from inspiration.
      And, the raptors are secretly fucked, besides, all of a sudden the Russians recognize the PERFECT SECRET of Penguins - that they don’t fly.
