Syria: Russian ships went to intercept the American squadron

155
While all international attention is focused on the events surrounding the poisoning of the former intelligence agent Skrypal in the UK, the situation in Syria runs the risk of escalating into a conflict of major powers. According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, American ships are most likely preparing to launch a missile attack on the territory of the Arab Republic. This is evidenced by a number of maneuvers conducted by the command of the US Navy.


At the same time, the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces issued a warning to the Americans. The statement says that if, in the event of a strike on the Syrian territory, Russian servicemen are put in danger, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will take all the necessary protection measures and will also retaliate against the units of the attackers.

It must be admitted that in the Damascus area there are a large number of Russian military advisers, as well as fighters of the military police.

    It seems that we are pulling into the area all the newest ... will they hear the mattresses or do not believe that the answer will arrive?
    All this, on our part, doesn’t seem like a bluff once. Apparently in the Crimea, they all raised the alarm.
    I won’t be surprised if Petka appears there very soon.

            No one will answer. As the former chief of the General Staff Ivashov said during the breakthrough of our airborne forces in (the former Yugoslavia) "... we didn’t have a cent in foreign banks or a centimeter of housing abroad, so we did not look back to the west ..." think for yourself .. ... we just wash ourselves with bloody snot in Syria, bury with honors "advisers" and all ....

          We want, we do not want, but here it does not depend on us. If these dodges do not at all believe that we will bang them (and I hope that some commanders, even with the cowardice of the country's leadership, will avenge us), then it depends on us only if we die in purity in our hearts. soldier
          That’s why Kadim’s proposal “to act like Israel,” that is, to strike at troops concentrating on our borders, is very “exciting” to me! Enough can worry over and over "June 22"?

          Of course I wouldn’t like to, but let's face it, the entire population of Russia with eggs has long understood that there will definitely be something, and the expectation is even worse, so if we are ready, it’s moral, at least. And there, as usual, we’ll figure it out on the spot. Just don’t say that there will be no one left la la la. The girl was in hiroshima during the bombing 100 meters from the explosion, and only died a couple of years ago, so that someone here and there will survive, take a charred Kalash, bite into the ground and fight, but can they do it like that .. ..

      Seriously? You forgot that for some time we have been armed with Daggers, as well as the Bastions, which are just sharpened to express concern for the US Navy command. At the same time, Crimea, as an aircraft carrier, as a matter of fact, will not be left aside with a strong air defense and missile defense.

          Of course, I really would not want to do this (in common sense, aware of the possible consequences). But what needs to be done so that the United States does not destroy Syria at will? As I understand it, Putin’s message about new weapons is another hint that it’s dangerous to fight with Russia with any kind of weapon. Therefore, a blow to US ships is not immediately armageddon.

      It is not a matter of who has more bombs, but quality. And our quality is incomparably higher, which means superiority. Just one example: the PERESVET machine was already used in combat conditions about 30 years ago (similar), and the effect was devastating.

The fight in the air is certainly guaranteed, although it is more assumed that the coalition will meet a missile strike on the ground. If the media is not touched, then it all comes down to the first act. They are terribly anxious to look at our "metal consumption" during a massive air strike. The reserve for Khmeimim on board will remain in case of an "insured event" with carriers.

        Agree again. States need to shoot, Russia needs to be repelled. They will discuss targets on which missiles will “break through”, on which “they will not break”. And they will afterwards express their concerns and ascribe victory to each to himself.
        Of course, in this case, each side will wait for a trick, and this is the heat, and any accident can lead to a non-contractual situation. But I think that at the top we should agree at least that even if all the ships there shoot each other it will not immediately lead to a global war.

    Russia in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Syria, has more than ten warships, Caliber missiles are in their arsenal. Some VK were converted to Caliber rockets, just not everything is reported in detail. It is also reported on several submarines off the coast of Syria in the Mediterranean Sea, which are also equipped with Caliber cruise missiles (there are at least six of them there, maybe more is not known for sure). Do not forget about the unsinkable aircraft carrier, I am about the Crimea peninsula, from it many of our missiles also reach the Mediterranean Sea. And also do not forget about the Caspian fleet, which with its missiles reaches not only the Mediterranean Sea. Also, all this is Russian power, calmly reaches rockets to the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea, where the rest of the US ships are concentrated. As we see, the combat capabilities of Russia are much stronger in this region. The Americans understand this, so they do not dare to strike.

      You cannot reach the enemy ships from the Caspian Sea or the Black Sea, since these are subsonic rockets (which explains their range) designed to destroy ground targets.
      For the defeat of ships there are "Onyxes", which are extruded from the same cells as the "Gauges", but have supersonic speed and represent a huge problem for the enemy's air defense. At the same time, their range is only about 300 km. Therefore, they may be interpreted from the Admirals and from the coastal Bastion complexes, provided that the Americans suddenly want to enter the zone of their defeat.
      6 Diesel and the Dagger, launched from Su-31BM, will help here. Well frigates and storoeviki will drive away the enemy submarines. It is a pity there are no cruisers, 1164go or 1144go together with 949 bomber ...
      But the Americans just press their nerves, in my opinion, it’s not for nothing that Trump literally just talked with the Darkest ...

        You are mistaken. It is from the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea. Exactly this. Amer has no such missiles. You can sympathize with them. The ZM family of missile systems includes the ZM-54E cruise missile anti-ship missiles, which became the development of the Granat missile system, the ZM-54E1 with a long flight range of up to 5 thousand km, and the cruise missile to destroy ground targets ZM-14E with increased stealth.

And the Onyx range of 300 km - actually even the infa that is - the Onyx range of 600 km, this is its export modification Yakhont - 300 km. - Well, they said the same thing about the "calibers", and about the Iskander laughing makes your passage a little less than nothing .... plus you forgot the Moskva cruiser with its supersonic basalts and a range of 550 km., and other ships .... - so no need wink

      Both ours and ours. Amer, in addition, is interesting to see how we manage to repulse the massive strike of cruise missiles. After all, they will be able to launch up to 600 at a time with available forces. But most likely the whole coalition will not participate. Americans of course will want two or three countries besides them to participate in the strike. Here is igtrig. I think Europe takes our words more seriously. And the fact that the answer will be I am personally sure at 95%.

        Don’t worry about their 600 missiles. They won’t be able to launch them. Our EWs have already blocked their GPS navigation. They don’t know what to do there? And where to shoot. And if you also turn on Alabuga, you can safely pass them by and shoot their ships like a dash. Remember the story with Donald Cook! How did our "bullies" mock them? They flew on a low-level flight, photographed the Americans who were running in a panic, and then they returned, scattered above them, their own photographs. After which, as we know, KUK hastily left the Black Sea. And our older brothers-neighbors will not let us start a full-scale war. This was also the case in 1964, during the first Caribbean crisis. At the very last moment, all electrical equipment was turned off, both with us and the Amerikuns. Remember how quickly natural disasters faded: - earthquakes, Tsunamis, Hurricanes ..... If they had been given free rein and were not disturbed, we would have already there weren’t, or the survivors would have huddled in some kind of ark, such as Noevsky. They had already ceased to warn the Americans to stop playing with weapons. After all, look how often hurricanes, Typhoons to America, have lately. But they will not calm down in any way. No wonder the unforgettable M. Zadornov spoke about them: - They are DUPE !!!

    It feels like ours really want to practice in intercepting a massive strike with cruise missiles. Therefore, take amers weakly. It is clear that there will be no answer - forces are not enough, this is not a layered territory of Russia. The number of modern missiles and their carriers for local conflicts is many times smaller. Aviation is also scarce. In principle, training is needed, but it’s a pity people substitute for the blow, not 41 years old, but the principles of the same bosses give birth.

Because the cost of missiles that were used is 100 times more expensive than those missiles that, for example, the Americans used to destroy the same type of objects, not for $ 1, but for only $ 000.

    A typical American doctrine to contain Russia: create a hotbed of tension (as far away from its shores, but closer to its bases) and draw Russia into it. Then, with their own and allies (and they never fight, they immediately create a “coalition”) to throw firewood into this hearth with actions.
    Regarding the tough answer, I don’t know, maybe the current position of Russia and the right one. After all, the Americans can also give a tough answer, and on all fronts. Their combat capabilities (even without NATO) are higher. So, we wish good luck and wisdom to our diplomats.

    I look and wonder. How easy it is for all couches here to have war, all such patriots are straightforward. Here the Americans will strike, here we will pile on them, here we will give the answer, but they will not. Are you all so narrow-minded? World War II with its millions of losses did not teach you anything, or you exchange hundreds and thousands of lives so easily from a sofa. If the mess begins with the filing of amers, no matter how hard we try with a retaliatory strike, we will not fail. All bases in Syria will definitely be covered and it’s not a fact that nothing will fly there. With the answer and the death of the Americans, and knowing their vile little heart, it’s not a fact that everything will stop there, but it can transfer everything to the mainland to visit us. And there already figs you will understand what will happen. The options are different up to the broads and there is no us (a sad option to which the world most likely will not reach). What do you think mothers and fathers feel when their son dies? Have you ever brought a coffin with your son to their house? No? I know what it is, and how they look into their eyes and how to explain everything. And then there’s no reason to instill patriotism here, it’s better to resolve everything with the world, only we get this sucks. It was necessary to move the rolls much earlier and show the teeth.

      Hello. If the actions and events taking place on the world stage are not a large-scale political spectacle, the goals and objectives of which remain outside the frame of the average citizen, then it becomes obvious that you need to work ahead of schedule, using all kinds of necessary resources, well-known ways and methods of confronting.

    Operation Skripal is most likely a test of the world community on the "Evil RF poisoning everyone around with the bloody Bashar." Too clumsy, unproven, more like a test ball, I deeply doubt that our partners suddenly became stupid idiots. With a chemical attack, it most likely did not burn out right away, or they slipped the chemical laboratory “to calm” or like a fish hook with a bait and are still ahead. By the way the partners are in a hurry and mess, it can be assumed that there is something very important in Ghout and this ruins the whole theater and the audience will have to return the grandmother. ” Khokhlov, too, provocation for Casus Belli broke, Nadia and Ruban tied. Urgently apparently cooking a new one. Erdogan Krakenovich is also in a hurry to the section, he even ran ahead, there were messages on TopVar that the Turks were breaking into the SSA territory and they had already sent them “Grad” for edification.
    Everyone is in a hurry, but first, some kind of global provocation is needed, and in several places. After that, I think a blow will follow, otherwise the Americans may lose Syria permanently. True, there will still be a Kraken whose horseradish you drive.
    Theoretically, we can repel about 75-85% of the impact, not in vain because GPS navigation in that area has gone insane for almost a week. Everything else will fly. Where? That is the question. And whether our specialists will be there at this time. If not, ours may be silent. “Destroy the carriers” will not quickly come out even with the help of Iran’s anti-ship missiles, at that time I also feel sharp gifts flying from the Idlib adder and from the Turks. Try to inflict the maximum possible damage. At the same time, the Donetsk front + possibly Transnistria + Karabakh should explode as much as possible. It’s just not possible to synchronize “all actors”.

      Not so fast. No one will rush headlong. The same Turkey, why would she suddenly shout at us. I think they can act cautiously. Like they’ll let one tomahawk, what will we do? Yeah, they didn’t answer, it means further more. And if they answered then how? To destroy? Yelling, snot, groans and other joys for "accidental start is not for you." Plus, it can fly from them already for us. After all, they may not recognize that the launch of the tomahawk was. In general, there are a lot of options in this case.

      I agree, but the percentage of reflection is 55-70 maximum, depending on how many will be launched right away and how you said whether it will all be synchronized.

    I’m afraid that the leadership will once again be afraid of aggravation (to thoroughly tame the scoundrels) and will once again break off with half measures, but each connivance to the “worst friends” is a blow to Russia's prestige and a FALSE hope for the ENEMY. More about Poplar: what, there is no better application? Again, window dressing!

      The world economy certainly needs war, but not the world thermonuclear. Big uncles love their grandmothers and power and are unlikely to agree to burn it all in a nuclear war. Locally - it may well be. But not globally. In general, all these conflicts and threats look like one big show

        Today, even a local US war is deadly. The United States has a debt of 21 trillion dollars. What if they start to demand? The end of dollar stability.

    If my son died (pah-pah) while doing his duty, I would be very sorry. But I would be proud. We are all mortal, but this death is better than from drugs or alcohol.

    You yourself answered yourself in the first sentence. If the son is brought up correctly, then he does not smell and does not crave. Do not forget about the newly signed decree on the call for military training. If anything, let's go all.

    The Americans are convinced that the maximum that the Russians will do is jamming electronic warfare and will probably shoot down missiles on approach! And shoot at the ships and aircraft of the SGA puss! As it was, more than once!

    There can be no doubt, in the event of strikes by the United States and Co., Russia will counter-strike, as was said in the Moscow Region, and it does not matter if we have enough strength or not enough. The USA and Russia have no choice, either their story with the dollar and God's election ends, or Russia ends, if Russia does not answer, then the igil will raise its head again, and then to the Caucasus and Central Asia, etc., and as it were, some would not dream sit out, you have to pick up a weapon and defend your right to life.

    It is interesting on what grounds the title "readers' choice" is assigned? There are at least comments here, compared, for example, with articles on elections and their results. So why is this nonsense, according to the editors, the reader's choice? They clicked on it a million times, or what, or how? And there are a lot of such stupid articles, and they have no authors. Revision, can clarify your policy? .

    As the experience of Comrade Kim Jong En proved, the Americans, having felt the determination of the enemy to strike with all their might in return, are surrendering, especially if the enemy can cause them real damage. Now the main task of our political and military leadership is to prove to the Americans that this time we are not bluffing and will not cave in, and this is not so easy - unlike En, our leadership caved in to this countless times, trying to play rules that no one is following.

    Nobody has put them in anything for a long time. Similar statements were made when tests of Ukrainian missiles over the "Russian" Crimea were in progress. Then they also threatened to destroy both packages and launchers. The tests passed, and silence. Then a few more tests passed, and the brave victorious are silent ...


    And what has passed there? if you forget it’s not a star, I’m writing correctly, you can’t swear here. All these Soviet missiles flew in the Odessa and Nikolaev region in the direction of Turkey. As usual, Petya handed out and began to thrash in and out of his sea, with a pair of NATO ships. Then the truth, they dragged one to Odessa in tow, guess what 3 times.

    It’s a good idea to pull out the Ukrainian fleet in Crimea on the last trip, there will be a magazine in bulk, let them look at the ships, at the same time we will strengthen the flotilla, we will hang the flags which should be on these ships and go into the embrasure. Everyone will run away how to give a drink))) ........ Something may come back, but what a slam door from Ukraine, they do not need them anyway.)))))
