The deployment of Patriot air defense systems in western Iraq may be directed against Russian aviation in the sky of Syria


Ближневосточные информационные источники со ссылкой на иракскую службу безопасности сообщают о том, что военнослужащие США приступают к созданию новой военной базы на территории Ирака. Утверждается, что речь идёт о военном объекте в районе города Хит (провинция Анбар).


It is noted that the base will be located near the border with the Syrian Arab Republic.

From a Middle Eastern media report:

The Americans are going to deploy Patriot anti-aircraft defense systems at the military base near the border with Syria. With their help, the U.S. Army may try to defend aviation Ain Assad base, as well as its other military facilities in the west of Iraq from possible missile attacks.

Recall that some time ago, the Ain Assad base became one of the US bases in Iraq that suffered a missile strike. Then the infrastructure of the military facility received serious damage. After some time, the At-Taji base was attacked, where three soldiers (two Americans and one British) were killed.

At the same time, the question remains unanswered whether the Patriot air defense systems are capable of protecting American military bases from the missiles and missiles that are used at these facilities.

Al-Ahad Iraqi News Agency reports that the US Patriot systems are ready to transfer to the border with Syria.

A very strange decision, especially when you consider that the attacks of US military bases were not carried out from Syria at all. That is why experts suggest that the deployment of the Patriot systems may be directed against Russian aircraft in the sky above the ATS. Earlier, the US tried to promote the idea of ​​creating a no-fly zone over Syria, which Russia categorically rejected, recalling how the case ended in Libya.

        Umm, have you personally been stolen? You personally organized an expedition to search for deposits, installed a couple of dozen drilling rigs, to determine the occurrence, you installed towers, pipelines, rocking chairs, extended power lines to power the entire infrastructure, fed hundreds of shift workers? Well, then yes, they stole you, contact the ECHR, or where did Khodorkovsky’s friends go there?

            And what, the Pessimist had to write: "Presenting oil to his own people." ? So in something he is right! Just in case, both minus.

            Hi soldier
            The soldiers have a saying - The soldier is sleeping, the service is going on .... - for sure, now it is out of place. Although, she is never out of place, as far as I remember, service, there is service, and nothing else.

                    In general, such soldier sayings / truths, an international phenomenon ... in one form or another are present in all armies.
                    soldier’s service is not easy, but soldier’s / barracks humor instead of psychologists and relaxation was then! now it’s different, the “civilization” in the barracks turned everything upside down and spoiled it.

      It was the Iraqis who said that they would decide to "leave." They did not accept (with the exception of the recommendation of the non-binding parliament).

      Russia covers its bases with S-300, S-400, Shell, Tor, Syrian S-125, S-200, S-300, Buk. A square, I hope they are all included in the same network, ours are for sure, but that's how Syrian, after all, are exported air defense systems

        All this is very good. It’s just not necessary to strike at Khmeimim. Enough to suffocate.
        If all this is done in agreement with Turkey, then this is another step to ensure that our group is there in a mousetrap. Imagine the situation that the graters began with the Turks, and the Americans supported them. Then the Turks block the straits, we begin to haul cargo through Iran and Iraq intensely with the help of transporters. But here the Pindo stanci declare that they will not let our planes pass. And they have an argument - air defense systems on the border with Syria. Here you can’t do anything.

    deployment of Patriot complexes can be directed against Russian aviation in the sky above the SAR
    В своих голубых мечтах они уже лишили Россию ядерных сил, авиации..., спокойно осваивают российские земли за Уралом. А на деле куда не сунуться везде косяки с сотнями тысяч жертв среди гражданского населения, полный развал стран и как итог постепенная утрата своего авторитета. Размещать свои ЗРК в Ираке им не запретишь, поэтому пускай тешутся мечтами. На каждый болт всегда найдется свой ключ.

    Middle Eastern information sources citing the Iraqi security service report that US troops are starting to create a new military base in Iraq. It is alleged that this is a military facility in the area Heath city (Anbar province).


    Well to the Syrian border there over 250 km. If they were deployed against the Russian Aerospace Forces and the SAR Air Force, it would be more logical to put in Kaym
    So the statement:
    The deployment of Patriot air defense systems in western Iraq may be directed against Russian aviation in the sky of Syria

    very stupid, at least.

    The air defense systems are deployed at the fired base, it is not difficult to guess what air defense systems are set up for protection.
