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

33

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 of ​​the city of Heath (Anbar province).


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.

      Having stolen oil from its own people, the Russian government decided to look after the Syrian oil.

        Having stolen oil from its own people, the government of the Russian Federation ....

        People in 1991 were told about "capitalism with a human face". And the people gave everything themselves. Some people still have these noodles on their ears.

            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, that soldier's / barracks humor instead of psychologists and relaxation was then! now it's different, "civilization" and in the barracks has turned everything upside down, spoiled.

      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
    In their blue dreams, they have already stripped Russia of nuclear forces, aviation ..., quietly mastering Russian lands beyond the Urals. But in reality, where there are no shoals everywhere with hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties, the complete collapse of countries and, as a result, the gradual loss of their authority. You can’t forbid them to deploy their air defense systems in Iraq, so let them enjoy their dreams. Each bolt always has its own key.

    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.
