Why the targets of missile strikes in Karabakh are misinterpreted: an explanation from the West

8

During the battles unfolding in Nagorno-Karabakh, numerous manipulations associated with the targets of rocket attacks are allowed. However, it is not difficult to understand this issue.


As Western blogger charly015 explains, the missile fragments do not at all indicate a strike on the location where they were found. During the flight of the rocket, a stage is separated from it, where the propulsion system is located. It is dangerous only because it can accidentally fall on someone's head. In this case, the warhead continues to move.

The real danger from heavy missiles is the warhead
- points out charly015, explaining that after the launch of a heavy rocket, such as "Smerch", three types of debris remain from it: the first stage; submunitions that fall on the target area; remnants of the design of the warhead, where the submunitions were loaded.

Usually, people who find these remains conclude that the enemy attacked this particular location. But this is the wrong interpretation. It is necessary to draw a conclusion not by a separate fragment, but by their total aggregate.

At the same time, everyone knows the true state of affairs: Armenians, Azerbaijanis
- writes the blogger, explaining that it is beneficial for all parties to the conflict to present themselves as a victim of a rocket attack. Therefore, the goals of strikes are misinterpreted due to concealment of the real alignment of things.

    It is beneficial for all parties to the conflict to present themselves as a victim of a rocket attack.

    That's the whole answer.
    Propaganda has been and remains an important component of any military conflict.

    The small number of reports of shelling of schools and hospitals is surprising.
    According to reports from Syria, all schools and hospitals in the country were destroyed 3 times by the Russian Aerospace Forces. And here they are being shy.

    And of course they hide it! winked If a rocket sticks out in the middle of the street, it is an art object, literally and figuratively.

    Thank you, Charlie, for enlightening us, semi-literate Russians.

    The real danger from heavy missiles is the warhead
    Ah yes blogger, finally enlightened. And then racked their brains for what is the warhead on the rocket?
    it is beneficial for all parties to the conflict to present themselves as a victim of a rocket attack
    But here you can not argue.

    "It is dangerous only because it can accidentally fall on someone's head" - probably this is not considered a crime by Western standards

    Nice and timely note.
    Many people and I believed that the tailed debris was not an exploded missile found where it was aimed.
    But we are forgiven - and the magazine and numerous "analysts" and bloggers apparently have no conscience.
    If you do not know, do not deceive the people.
