US military did not even try to intercept Iranian missiles at bases in Iraq


The American media publish remarkable information regarding the Iranian missile attack on military bases in the United States. Recall, it was previously reported that the Iranians informed the Iraqi authorities about preparations for an attack on American military facilities on Iraqi territory.


Now it became known that the US military received information about Iran’s preparations for a missile strike about 2,5 hours before its implementation. So, the following is being reported on CNN:

By 23:00 on January 7, most of the servicemen managed to leave the military base. The rest took refuge in bunkers.

The first missile fell on the territory of Al-Assad base at about 01:35 on January 8th.

At the same time, the American media does not answer the question of who specifically received information about impending missile attacks from the IRGC at military bases. Apparently, data of this nature could be transmitted to them by Iraqi colleagues.

In addition to the base of Al-Assad, the IRGC also attacked the base in Erbil.

Based on this information, it can be concluded that the US military did not even attempt to intercept Iranian missiles using the available air defense-missile defense systems. No activity of American air defense systems in Iraq at the time of the missile attack was recorded. Recall that earlier in the US there was information about the readiness to purchase the Iron Dome system from Israel and to cover their bases in the Middle East with them.

      Strange world.

      The world is changing and war too. In the 21st century, the main arena of confrontation is the information front. We see that even attacks on the enemy are carried out in such a way as to cause a minimum of damage with a large information noise. And even with such blows the parties are reluctant. Everyone is trying to fight indirectly, through the so-called proxy forces. And economic wars and attacks on the enemy through sanctions have long become commonplace.
      What to do, Russia needs to adapt. Thank God, in recent years, the focus of confrontation from Russia has shifted south to the Middle East and Asia. Russia is simply obliged to take advantage of this respite. Unfortunately, in the economy this does not work out at all. The standard of living of the vast majority of citizens continues to decline with a huge increase in the welfare of a handful of billionaires.

        Unfortunately, in the economy this (everyone already knows) will fail.
        If there wasn’t even an attempt to use the “Crimean consensus” for a “breakthrough in the economy”, it’s stupid to wait for an economic miracle “from a respite”.
        But the bravura reports that our oligarchs, as a result of the "respite", became so many billions richer, the deputies added so much percent to their salaries, bureaucrats drank so much percent of the budget, we, of course, will see and hear ...
        And also “talking heads” from the screens will explain to us that a progressive tax is “not our method” ... we need to further develop preferential taxation on the super-rich, and to find “missing funds” in the pockets of ordinary citizens so that they don’t have not a single chance to reach a beggarly pension ...

            I think that the Americans should have tested their air defense systems in a combat situation ... And so it can be assumed that the NATO short-range and medium-range air defense systems are not so effective.
            About Trump, he was foolish with the assassination of Iranian generals. This political assassination is still backfired by the United States. hi

        After the Iranian authorities were forced to declare their responsibility for the crash of the Ukrainian plane, spontaneous mourning events took place in Iranian cities, which almost immediately grew into new protests. In fact, this is a continuation of the almost crushed "gasoline" protests, they take place in the same cities as before.

        The IRGC, which is the direct culprit in the tragedy, has undermined its position in the Iranian elite and looks largely demoralized. At least right now. The tragedy with the Ukrainian plane was superimposed by mass deaths at the Suleymani funeral, where at least 50 people died in a crush. More than 200 people sacrificed in just a few days, significantly changed the mood in Iranian society.

        Everyone is already discussing the plane, the death of Suleymani and otvetka went by the wayside.

        The Americans got out of the water almost dry, the general is dead, and Iran is in crisis, it is necessary to fight protests, otherwise the color revolution will knock on the door.

          Well, if I were an Iranian political PR, then I would declare all the dead martyrs, and Iran - the righteous victim. hi
          The Americans came out of the water almost dry

          Oh oh Their image, and hence their informal status “in terms of concepts,” sank even further on two significant points at once:
          a) the Americans suffered a blow from a third-rate country and wore away;
          b) American air defense missile defense - der`mo.
          the general is dead

          If you look karyne cynically, then Iran (IRGC?) Got rid of an aggressive political hawk that had great weight and influence. Now you can behave less brutally.
          and Iran is in crisis

          There has long been a crisis, but for completely different reasons, it is not connected with foreign policy. Already one factor of "youth overpopulation" is enough.

            Yesterday I read an article on Iarex.ru for Suleimani, they write that the general created an oil trading structure bypassing sanctions, controlled the flow of money from the Chinese for oil, and in general became a very strong independent figure with money and connections. Naturally, this state of affairs did not suit the Ayatollah Council, so it is possible that the Americans removed a strong political figure and then agreed to shoot at empty bases to calm public opinion. As the saying goes, both wolves are fed and sheep are intact.

          They came out of the incident almost dry (IMHO) only because Iran deliberately leaked its strike - prevented a big “drum” on the warhead.

          As for “dryness”, you clearly wishful thinking - reputation losses are even worse than with Kim, and given the fact that Iran launches its nuclear program, five years later (or earlier), this will strongly affect the Americans and especially the Israelis in the form of their own nuclear weapons .
          The dead general has become a martyr for all Shiites, and it is still unknown how this will affect the spirit and number of death row people - you misunderstand this too.
          As for the crisis, Iran has been in it for thirty years, and there is no use for it. But the fact that the Chinese have been buying oil from Iran has long been known to everyone, as well as the fact that they will not allow a reduction in the supply of the raw materials they need, which means that the United States will wipe off like the leader of the DPRK.

      This is not a strange world, this is a negotiated agreement in all its glory. The only question is who participated in this and how? And then it seems that the death of the general was also planned not only by the Yankees. I hope ours did not participate in this troubled business, although the general flew out of Damascus, which casts a small shadow on us.

        Islam is power, religion, holy - which must be respected, like other faiths. The states, accustomed to their impunity, stirred up this (sorry for the allegory) anthill. Even if the Qur'an forgives, Jihad will remain in groups. Only a dumb woman will not understand what they did with this murder of Suleimani. The states themselves have signed a sentence, even if they destroy Iran, and this is just oil on fire.

        Greetings Boris hi
        “To attack Ain al-Assad military base in Iraq in retaliation for the assassination of the commander of the special forces Al-Quds of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps General Kassem Suleimani, the IRGC used the latest high-precision ballistic missiles Fateh-313 and Kiyam. They have a flight range of 500 and 800 kilometers, respectively. The US Air Defense was not able to intercept any of the missiles launched from Iran by Ain al-Assad, because it does not have the technical means to intercept such BRs in this region, emphasizes “Tasnim ". It is noted that Kiyam have a separable warhead and are equipped with an active jamming system for radars," said the Tasnim Iranian agency.

          So the shame of the United States on the Iraqi front is double :: the shame is not only that they were NOT detained (they were not shot down, they were not dropped, they were not sent to milk ...), but it is a shame that they are so outdated that they were simply not able to fulfill its function.
          And these Yankees are still embarrassed that they are ready to intercept all the missiles that are prepared for the United States in Russia (and they will be milder than the Iranian ones, Russia has a higher education in this matter!). Shame on vocational schools! laughing

          Yeah, they left their equipment in sight, hid themselves in the bunkers, having received a warning about the strike 2 hours before, and the Iranians, knowing the exact location of the US air defense systems, hit empty warehouse buildings with the goal of minimal damage to the attacked.

To open the air defense / missile defense base, and then suddenly the main blow will go with the suppression of the air defense / missile defense, and so they calculated the possible damage, removed the valuable ... and then we'll see.

          And how did the Americans "get it"? They removed the second most important person in Iran, violated yet another red line in international law, yet the liquidation of such a figure is a precedent for the world. And Iran in every possible way threatened to take revenge, the vengeance flag was hanged ... and avenged? The Americans were probably shocked by the stampede in Iran at the funeral and the fall of the Boeing (given that mainly Iranians and people of Iranian descent with a Canadian passport were on the plane), so here you can only sympathize with the Iranian population. Revenge is so revenge) as regards the gesture, the blow to American bases, they gave the USA a slap in the face, but were afraid to overdo it so that the fist wouldn’t fly back. But nothing has changed globally .... if the Americans completely withdraw from Iraq then it will be possible to talk about the victory of the Iranians, but regarding the complete withdrawal of the United States from BV, Iran cannot do this.

              1. He got up from his knees loudly said. Since Iran is under sanctions and new slams, it is a matter of time. And in general, what is meant by this? They snapped yes, but none of the American troops was injured, and the intimidation was an attempt to save face. They didn’t go over the line, and it is unlikely that someone else from neighboring states will try to test the United States for strength, And about impunity, they did not hear about the new economic sanctions from Trump?

              2. I agree, but with all this, the medicine was not injured, and there was no attempt to somehow shut itself off from Iran’s missiles. There was no missile defense at the bases, the Americans were clearly not ready for such a move by Iran.

              3. The Americans will survive.

              4. The Persians are afraid to cross the red line, so they untied their hands too loudly. Just the Iranian leadership understands where to save face, and where their country is waiting for a full-fledged war.

              "UN, January 9. / Correspondent TASS Maria Khrenova /. Iran has completed revenge for the assassination of General Kassem Suleymani and will not take new military action in the absence of aggression from the United States. Iran’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Majid Taht-Ravanchi, said in response to a TASS question about Tehran’s reaction to a speech by US President Donald Trump.

              "All our actions were proportional to the assassination of Kassem Suleimani. They were completed. If the US no longer takes military action against Iran, on our part we will not take such actions, either," he stressed.

              5. No one will allow Iran to do nuclear weapons. If the Iranians still try to do what they plan, then an international coalition led by the United States (NATO countries, Israel, etc.) will gather and strike at Iran. In the meantime, the Persians want to put at the negotiating table and solve this issue is not a force option.

              6. There will be no more such revenge, perhaps pro-Iranian groups and will trifle somewhere in the USA with life, but such an intimidation will not happen again. I do not believe in Iranian suicides :)

              7. I agree here.

                In political relations, the state does not even have close relations that you would like to see as standard and (gihiks!) Legal - which will inevitably be adopted by the states that share the trampist point of view on the possibility of using the style of American-democratic terrorism in diplomatic relations ( which for many clown-imitative regimes might be desirable, but impossible because of the lack of forces, means, political will and permission of the lochtorat).
                This does not suit Russia in the first place, let the rest draw conclusions to which these mongrel countries will have to be forced.

    And everyone is happy.
    Americans - no victims. Reputation due to air defense did not suffer ("and we were not going to shoot down"). Yes, and saved money.
    Iran - fulfilled its promise of otvetka. No harm done. Now you can’t get "terrorism".
    Iraq - the amount of compensation for the withdrawal of American troops has decreased.

    An interesting situation. If you start to sort everything out, then you can print the finished script for the film. smile And not one, probably. Iran is not so united. And apparently not without connections, apparently, with the American intelligence. And in the latter, anyone could have played this crisis, starting from the internal political struggle in the USA itself. For example, to the arms lobby. Now serve the Iron Dome and that’s it. One of course is dirty that other people suffer. Some are playing politics. The second with a fright, without hesitation, they take off a flying plane. The third are hyping. And these are not only readers and authors of articles with HE, for example bully And every watered riffraff like the same Turchinov.

        By and large, since you printed it and it is. This, of course, is more visible to us from the side. We can talk about it. But Iranian society is not easier from this. And the Iranian leadership themselves need to think. What and how. And what kind of moral condition of the nation their people have in their country. And if anyone from outside is playing a game against them then there is no way to save themselves .

          In the last sentence, the idea is correct, only the emphasis is not in place.
          The phrase should read: Is this label enough for Putin to have a fence in front of Donik in the run for the 2nd term, or will the label strengthen this GDP; or just spit on everything and agree to Clinton Yaga. laughing

    The United States is already used to fighting with blackmail and money, these attacks do not damage the US business in the region, if the Persians had a lot of Yankees there, then it would be possible that the United States fought in the old way, using weapons.

      The Persians have even more opportunities: the Strait of Hormuz they shoot through and across even without the Bastions, and they said that the second series of revenge for Suleimani is still ahead.
      Oh, I need to sell them the Bastions, well, not a division, then at least a battery (for training, with double control laughing )

    Why so? A real opportunity for training in a combat environment. The reason to boast, such as "our most air defense." Another thing is if you yourself are not sure that it is really in working condition ...

    Unfortunately, as it turned out, the United States, starting to "stir up water" in Iraq, came out of this story "dry out of the water", Iran lost the legendary general, got into a dubious story with a "retaliatory" (contractual) blow to American bases, and underwent abstraction in connection with a downed plane, civil unrest also began!
    To go nuts!

    NOT the use by the Americans of their air defense to protect their bases, it is intended (c) to lose face. In the event that the air defense shot down missiles, the best advertisement for the US armament can not be imagined. But the non-use of air defense is already the second stone (after the Saudi) in the garden of inefficiency of American weapons in terms of air defense. And no explanation, such as "they have a grenade of the wrong system" and that there were no necessary installations there, does not roll. Such a “treaty” on the part of the United States could only be agreed upon by a traitor to the interests of his country, or by a completely stupid person. Ukrainian plane shot down. Before that, over Ukraine. 2 timesA- this is some sort of pattern. As stated in one of the films: "the most dangerous experiments are carried out on the least valuable crew members." Maybe in this case, too? Are public opinion trying to create an unfavorable? But the civilian plane shot down by the Americans has not yet been forgotten. Yes, and in the previous incident, the "ears" of the Americans appeared, according to the mass media ... Pavilno Iran recognized the Pentagon as a terrorist organization ... Indeed, death and blood are being planted all over the world ...

    Within the framework of such a cunning policy, it will soon become clear that, under a secret agreement with Iran, the Americans, with surgical accuracy, "themselves blew up some buildings at the bases." For the sake of peace on Earth ", of course. wink

    Iran deserves such a shame.
    We’ve lost almost the main person in the country, lost our minds all over the world, and got off with a contract strike,
    do they really think that people are dumb and don’t understand what's what. And as a result, there was also a tragedy with an airplane.
    Circus and shame.
    Unfortunately, once again everything turned out perfectly for the USA, they took a chance, completed all the tasks, and got off with a couple of warehouses and a piece of iron, plus they got a psychological victory. The whole world saw that their criminal acts went unpunished. They will now be even more confident in their criminal actions and the further they are, the more they will become impudent.

    I thought Iran would launch ballistic missiles in Israel and would pray to be shot down without casualties. A similar scenario was played out, for example, after the liquidation of Imad Mugniye.
    Iran decided not to take risks and hit American bases, warning the United States to avoid casualties.
    The United States, for its part, did not hinder retaliation (like Israel in 2008 and 2019) in order to satisfy Iran and close this business.
    Bottom line: Iran hit American bases, hit and caused damage. There are no victims, the war was avoided. Suleimani is dead. Collateral damage - Ukrainian Boeing.

    the general created a structure for oil trading bypassing sanctions, controlled the flow of money from the Chinese for oil, and in general became a very strong independent figure with money and connections.

    The political leadership is traditionally afraid of BONOPARTISM. That is, that an intelligent, strong-willed, successful general will get a big influence in his hands and push the rest. And it’s not only pushing it aside. A common thing, here are two striking examples - Caesar and Napoleon. We could have become so pr. D. Pozharsky to the Troubles, but did not grow together.

    An air force base or an army cannot but be covered by air defense systems. The fact that she was not there was bullshit for the demented. And then, the air defense, in this case (missile strike), should be at the level of missile defense.
