Military Review

How the Pentagon appreciated the actions of the Russian military during the attack on Syria

92
During the recent missile attack by the United States and its allies on the territory of Syria, the Russian military "behaved professionally" and did not threaten the Americans, reports RIA News statement by the representative of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, Lieutenant General Kenneth Mackenzie.




We did not feel threatened at any moment. In fact, the Russians did not broadcast any threats during this strike. They acted professionally and complied with the "rules of the road" at sea,
said MacKenzie.

At the same time, he emphasized that for the destroyer "Donald Cook" there was no danger.

Earlier, the general said that the military of the two countries were constantly in touch, using special channels for communication designed to prevent conflicts between the parties involved in the Syrian conflict.

The Times recently reported that Russian submarines forced the Astute class British submarine to maneuver randomly, and as a result, it was unable to strike at Syria. As the newspaper wrote, the submarine "played cat and mouse" in the Mediterranean Sea with one or two Russian diesel-electric submarines of the Varshavyanka class.

Recall 14 April, the United States, Britain and France launched rocket attacks on Syrian targets, which government agencies allegedly use to produce toxic substances.

    That is, "professionally," according to Comrade Representative of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States Lieutenant General Kenneth Mackenzie, this means not to threaten the Americans and "We did not feel the threat at any time. In fact, the Russians did not broadcast any threats during this strike." . The beauty, professionalism of the military, yes ...

          Yes, no “respected", it’s not us, but they lowered themselves below the plinth, disappointing all their allies in B. Vostok and its environs. For two hits, they spent 159 “Tomahawks” (56 + 103), achieving zero result for 250 million dollars. A quarter of lard was leaked to the toilet !!! Moreover, two of their missiles are now being opened by our engineers "rocket anatomists", which does not bring mattresses joy and also casts doubt on their potential buyers the reliability of American weapons. More than 70% of smart missiles were shot down by uneducated missile systems. Losing a reputation in the arms market is an expensive pleasure. Well, as a cherry, they were not able to open our air defense system and analyze the parameters of its operation. In vain in the sky, burning kerosene, their reconnaissance planes dangled for several hours. So take the American’s words not as praise of the Russian military, but as disappointment in the sense that, thanks to the professionalism of the Russians, the Americans’s goals have not been achieved.

        Assessment of professional actions:
        During the recent missile strike of the United States and its allies in Syria, the Russian military “behaved professionally”

        And a statement of complete incapacity, not only were they unable to enter the positional area for firing, they also do not know how much “Varshavyanka” (one? two? a hundred ?) drove them.

        No, they simply organized, as they could, Syrian air defense and watched how much they would catch by shooting into empty boxes. 70% of shot down and several free gesheft for research are quite a normal result of Trump’s self-affirmation. This is, approximately, Ukraine’s confidence in the 4-year containment of Russia. True, no one has ever fought with them. But let them show off.

          Turn on the brain. At that time, the arrogant Saxons already knew that the Russian threat to destroy the carriers was an empty bluff. And since bluffing, then why were they scared? What would our “Varshavyanka” have done, at least 3, at least 5, if the arrogant Saxons fired? - Nothing. And, again, arrogant Saxons, they did not just understand this, they knew it for sure. So, nothing bothered them. There was some other reason, if they were going to shoot at all.

      It is difficult to be effective outside the radius of destruction .... Do you have the same air defense missiles for the "zone" flying? And yet, yes, who gives them an extra kick to give acceleration after running out of fuel? Wai, I completely forgot, your missiles are designed for kinetic interception on the opposite courses ... the benefit of the directions for hitting one less (from the sea, the Arabs have little that is suitable). What about chasing a target? So for the sake of interest, look in the same wiki the speed of our anti-aircraft missiles and the speed of the ax ...

        Especially if the radar screen is empty. A low-flying target, like the KR, can be brought down if it flies over the complex. Or attacking him. If aside - it is not visible.

          This is not stupid. This is combat propaganda. In war, no one talks about their losses, and even if they do, it fully understates them. In order not to undermine the morale of their troops. And in every way exaggerate the loss of the enemy. This is normal practice. It is a pity that you do not understand this.

    The Pentagon certainly replaced the concept. The word “professional” is not appropriate here. It was more correct to say “prudently.” But probably after all these fake statements about the downfall it was not bad to add “a little false.” Probably in the Syrian territory, even the air defense radars were turned off, out of harm's way.

      Reading the comments of Israeli members of the forum, the feeling never leaves, they consider their opinion to be the only true one. It is true to the same extent that the Israelis do not under any circumstances visit Afghanistan for example.

        Here you have the habit of attributing to us what we did not say, and then vehemently dispute this. Clearly written "SURE", there should have noticed a lack of self-confidence.
        And why the hell are we? We do not need a feral Iran, if it had not become attached to us with the screeching “DESTROY” like a drunk on the street, we would not have looked at us.

          This is not about you, about the warrior example. He is reading now too. He asserted somehow that there is a railway from China to Pakistan in the world. I’ll tell you - this is against all the laws of physics available to me. But there is she and that's it!
          And where ? Huge plans, dams are built to stabilize the flow of Geza. Highways are improving. And the bridges there - a sight for sore eyes - are stone, arched. I don’t know if this is possible from the point of view of physics and elementary rationalism - railway along the Karakorum highway. 10 years there for 2 months in the year "guest workers". I did not see anything like railway. Now others go there too, they didn’t see the railway either.

And no aggressive actions from Iran towards Israel are observed. Oh yes, sorry, I forgot about the drunk "screech." This is a terrible threat !!!!!!

    But for the destroyer Donald Cook, there was a danger. To state the opposite is deceit. Russia has enough systems to overwhelm it by breaking through air defense. But a chain of events could lead to a nuclear conflict. I do not think that this is necessary on both sides. So it was prudent to exercise prudence.

      The question is - why should always only Russia be prudent? Is it because the United States and its satellites are mentally defective? And do you expect prudence from them a priori?

    Well, at least there is still some kind of connection between the Russian and American sides - this cannot but rejoice. Of course, Putin’s restrained policy, his strong nerves, inspires optimism, nevertheless peck Putin from all sides from the territory of the West. We always have time to fight and die. But one day it will be necessary to make a difficult decision - to respond with a military strike on US ships, it would be better if it happened as late as possible.

    In my humble opinion, it should not be so important to evaluate our actions as a potential adversary, the main thing is to know well our performance without any embellishment and since any actions become large-scale - either they should not be covered in the media at all, or honestly, so that there wouldn’t be as with PMCs from ichtamnet to "well, a person died before 15", otherwise trust is very much undermined, but it is like virginity :).

    Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said at a briefing that Russian air defense systems located in Syria were completely ineffective and did not interfere with coalition operations.
    All air-to-air missiles were launched by Syrian forces "after the last coalition forces missile hit a specific target."

    1. Suppose White speaks the truth. Then who shot the air defense? If nothing in the sky beat, but only interference on the locators, then interference cannot be beaten. If some imitation traps were hit, then they can be knocked down; their wreckage will be found on the ground and examined. But this is already not bad.
    2. For the United States, the strike was very effective - I underestimated it in the beginning. In addition to the political goal - allies of Syria and Iran will compromise Russia in front of them (they will not protect you) and make a split between Russia and Turkey, it turns out they destroyed a very valuable goal - the institution of which developed drugs for the delivery of which from the West is prohibited. This can lead to premature death of tens or hundreds of thousands of patients, including children. If these medicines can be obtained only from the hands of the Assad opposition, then this will strengthen their influence, there will be dissatisfaction from Assad and a new wave of refugees.
