The Pentagon is confused: either a “successful debut”, or “a lot of injured”


The US military again demonstrates the complete inconsistency of its various units in the assessment of the same event. Local officials sharing information with the public about the January 8 rocket bombardment of the US al-Assad air base in Iraq broadcast messages to the public that were, to put it mildly, not too “docking” in their meaning and essence. At first, as we recall, it was a question of the fact that not a single brave American “advocate of democracy” had even fallen from his head. Now it turns out that the heads themselves were far from all of them. And at the same time, some at the Pentagon undertake to declare that everything that happened was a completely successful “debut” of the recently created US Space Command.


Instead of completely denying any losses incurred by US troops during the IRGC missile attack, today we have official recognition by Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman that 34 people still “suffered traumatic brain injuries” in her process. Half of them, however, already feel fine and even returned to carrying out their official duties. On the other hand, exactly the same number of military men - 17 people "are under medical supervision." 11 of them were apparently not doing well, since they were completely evacuated from Iraq. Judging by the fact that the anamnesis refers to “symptoms similar to a concussion,” which Donald Trump described in his inimitable manner as “a headache and a couple of other things,” this is most likely a fairly serious contusion. At the same time, the Pentagon answers the question of why they immediately denied the presence of victims, as such, generally phenomenally: “So they didn’t complain!” By the way, the owner of the White House was found here, saying that the TBI received by his compatriots was “much better than losing limbs. " Fair. Handles legs in place - and rejoice!

A fairly dissonance to this rather clumsy attempt to get out of an extremely awkward situation is the victorious report of representatives of another unit of the US military, SPACECOM, that is, the recently created Space Command of the US Armed Forces. It turns out that the events of January 8th became the “successful baptism of fire” of the early detection system of missile launches, for which it is precisely responsible. According to the official statement made on this occasion, on January 8 a considerable number of people and units were involved. The command coordinated the missile warning center, the Joint Aboveground Permanent Infrared Planning Center, the Joint Space Operations Center, and the United Tactical Ground Stations, "deployed by the US Army around the world to expand infrared coverage."

The most distinguished are military personnel of the 460th space wing, deployed at the Buckley air base in Colorado and operating four satellites of the space infrared system (SBIRS). In a word, all the fellows, all worked wonderfully well - only the whole platoon is now out of order. This is according to current data - there is a suspicion that the Pentagon is again not saying anything. A logical question arises: see - saw, track - tracked ... And what's the point? After all, not one of the Iranian ballistic missiles that fell on American military facilities, as it now turns out, under the vigilant supervision of the Space Command, was either intercepted or destroyed.

However, even in the SPACECOM official statement, representatives of the new command speak only of “a multitude of systems that contribute to the worldwide warning and detection of missiles to protect the nation.” There is no word on how to bring down these missiles. Something they have there, in the Pentagon, to see, is unfinished in this matter ...

      Falling from a bunk during a shelling
      Soldier will become immediately shelled
      Here you understand the actual thing
      Only a combatant dives bravely!
      Golden cross getting paid for it.
      Or for bravery, a medal on the chest
      Having become a Veteran, is the matter
      Being under fire is such a horror.
      The best shots - flew from the beds
      Military Experience - Absorbing
      Heroes became simple soldiers
      Only after washing - change of linen! wassat

      more often they are baptized.

      “There are no unbelievers in war and at sea” (c)

      An alarm rang out like thunder
      All rushed to save someone where
      Although Saddam on the occasion of this
      Built a bunker - just beauty!
      But out of habit or with fright
      Excellent John went back
      It’s not easy in the tent
      Where the battalion warehouse was located.

      John crossed his left hand
      And with a fright under the rack climbed
      Wearing a helmet with the same vest armor
      To survive the terrible stress.
      The siren howled, taking out the soul
      John prayed earnestly - for stress!
      Prayer to the Lord hurried, flying away
      And somewhere out there lost in the sky
      Rockets fell all fuel burning
      One exploded right at the porch
      And John prayed, remembering God
      He expected a terrible end ...

    34 people in her process nevertheless “received traumatic brain injuries”
    A good debut of the United States Space Command - Iranian missiles reached the target, and 34 people. received injuries (injuries) probably as a result of the recoil of the blasters, which reflected a missile strike. It turns out that not only in Ukraine and Poland have their own verbiage and "specialists" in communicating with the media.

    Missile Warning Center, Joint Aboveground Permanent Infrared Planning Center, Joint Space Operations Center and United Tactical Ground Stations

    This is how the Iraqi military is now cunningly called, who transmitted information from the Iranian military about a missile strike.

    In general, the Persians are very restrained and polite people.
    They not only avenged, but also humiliated the US military.
    At the same time, the victims were minimized by warning through third countries about the strike, forcing the US military to sit for hours in bomb shelters in anticipation of a strike, which inflicted well-known psychological damage on the unshielded warriors.

    A good lesson from the administration of the White House, which clearly showed how easily it can slide in a few days from an unceremonious murder to an exchange of missile attacks and a possible escalation of the conflict.

      The 2nd man of Iran was killed and all his guards, in response, Iran struck a shock to 17 soldiers. But they humiliated the US military. Clearly understood.

    1. Of course, everything is fine in their work, they do not use the brain.
    2. It was confirmed that it was clear already, so far there is only one possible missile defense - attack detection tools + good cover.

    The failure of SPASECOM in Iraq is connected exclusively with the lack of a new form, which they did not have time to get: cowards over thongs are an element of omnipotence both on Earth and in space.

    If the author were interested in facts, not propaganda, then he would know that in Iraq the Americans do not have missile defense systems. They were bred a long time ago, back in 2011

    Stishata? Even from KAA ?! However...
    That is, the United States has launched the global detection system IR. It may not be coordinated (apparently) with the rest of the army systems, but the likelihood that there is one seems to be quite large. The presence of such a system leads us to two conclusions. Firstly, the very detection of infrared traces of rocket launches and flights with the modern development of detection systems is not a miracle. But the fact that a computer system for interpreting the global thermal picture has been created ... This means that the Americans have achieved tremendous success in electronics and computer science. Another success.
    And the second one. ICBM protection is based on opposing radar and optical assets. The United States has received a giant bonus to its systems. The poets here are held in high esteem today. Ugh ...
