The silence of the Greeks. Crete reconnaissance aircraft transferred to Crete


According to some reports, the MC-12S EMARSS and MC-12W Liberty aircraft arrived at the airfield in Heraklion. These machines were used during large aviation operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as smaller missions in Africa and Latin America. Let us remind you that there is a large American military base in the Court in Crete.

The publication reports that these aircraft are used to identify and collect large amounts of information, each such aircraft serves the crew member 4.

Earlier Thursday, The Times reported, citing a source in the British government, that the British Air Force in Cyprus are on alert for a possible strike on Syria. The BBC, citing its own sources, said Wednesday that British Prime Minister Theresa May expressed willingness to join military action against Syrian government forces without the approval of the British parliament. According to the newspaper The Daily Telegraph, the prime minister ordered British submarines to advance to the shores of Syria over a missile strike.

      Thoroughly.
      Ankara and NATO will discuss the use of the Incirlik base in the event of an operation in Syria, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said.

            OPCW report?

            The OPCW is only driving, and Macron already has evidence. Like Teresa, she was waiting for an investigation yesterday, and today without waiting, she already sent the boats to strike. And Merkel from the first shots immediately believed in white helmets.

    They will seek and where are the Syrians hiding. So that inadvertently, when a Russian hits, it does not hurt.

    US may strike Syria “very soon”, or “not at all soon” - Trump
    Washington. 12th of April. INTERFAX - US President Donald Trump notes that he never mentioned the timing of the strike on Syria.
    "I never said when the attack on Syria will take place. Maybe very soon, or not at all very soon!" he tweeted on Thursday.
    “In any case, the United States during my administration did an excellent job of freeing the region from IS (a terrorist group is banned in the Russian Federation - IF). Where is your“ Thank you, America? ”The American president added.

      They are sure that Russia will once again give in and wipe off. Before that, there were too many precedents.

    The USA, Great Britain, Cyprus and Crete are “carriers”. A preemptive strike on the media can weaken the onslaught and sober up.

    If they don’t hit tonight, they won’t start before the mattress squadron arrives, and in the side news panel, the Wagner PMC fighters were taken to Iraq already.

      Well, really strange news ... From the category: "The big drape has already begun, after Assad Syria, his defenders are leaving in a hurried order!" .. like in an old joke .. "Who is it that just dumped off the boat in the boat? - Yes, like Chris Rea, Chris Kelme and Chris De Burg .. - Ah! .. Chris flee from a sinking ship .."
      Since the NATO troops (namely military, not balabol) are very consistent people, they will try their doctrine of a massive missile non-nuclear strike in Syria .. It’s a sin not to test in practice the capabilities of the enemy’s air defense .. So they’ll hit. There is no great difference when exactly this will happen - but the later, the worse for us, because for our modest capabilities, their number of carriers will increase by time over time .. And there simply will not be time to reload air defense systems.

        I agree with you, the question is different, what should our Supreme do? You can remain silent and wipe yourself of course, then really, it remains to collect manat and blow to the house. But Stalin also delayed the start of the war, ordered the provocation not to give in, and Hitler attacked anyway !!! Let’s leave now in Syria, the West will not calm down, and it will become even more impudent and the war will definitely be, the only question is what? either limited and far from our borders, or already real on our land. Clearly no one wants to die, people are already used to living in relative calm, here many people on the site have already written about bunkers, about children and relatives, about radiation sickness, that's just Soviet people in the summer of 1941, too, some were fishing, some were going to graduations and they also didn’t want to fight and die, but for them everything was decided by one German ok with a mustache, now Trump took on his role ....

        Since NATO (it’s the military, not balabol

        That's right. Remind Colin Powell US Army General? Can I collect a whole collection from these non-balabol

        The problem is that in Syria, the enemy may turn out to be Assad, and nuclear weapons parity in Russia with the Americans, and not with Assad.

        And there will simply be no time to reload air defense systems.

        That's for sure, you can not recharge, you can immediately pray.
