"Signal to the West" - an expert on the participation of the Caspian Flotilla in the Syrian war.




Russia announced on Wednesday, October 7, the use of cruise missiles launched from ships in the Caspian Sea by terrorists from the Islamic State group. 26 rockets covered a distance of one and a half thousand kilometers over the territory of the three countries, before hitting the alleged targets of the Islamists. French expert, coordinator of security programs of the French Institute of International Relations Korentan Bruistolen believes that the goal was not military, but, above all, political. Moscow decided to demonstrate the power of the Russian weapons potential adversaries in the West and arms importers in the Middle East. This was Korentan Brüstolen told in an interview with RFI.

Korentan Brüstolen: What we see now in Syria is the desire to demonstrate that Moscow broke the Western monopoly on the use of this type of cruise missiles. Typically, such cruise missiles are used at the very beginning of the operation in order to take the enemy by surprise. And very few states have such weapons, in particular, the United States, as well as some other countries that have bought them mostly from the USA too. France, they have, but a smaller range.

Moscow wants to demonstrate that the technological gap between the West and Russia has narrowed. The abyss, from which Russia suffered for a long time. But beyond that, in this one must see the desire of the Russians to create an image of a great power, which can intervene in external conflict in a manner that only the United States could afford before. And this was a confirmation of Putin’s speech from the UN podium, where he presented himself as the “authorized representative” of the alternative to the United States and the West.

That is, it is more a message to rivals and opponents of Russia than the real need to use such weapons to solve combat missions in Syria?

I think this is actually a demonstration of ability. The real goal (here I’m not talking about the physical goal in the face of the “Islamic State) is the West and its allies, to whom Moscow wants to send a clear message.

But in general, is there any point in using cruise missiles against insurgents? The Americans used cruise missiles at the start of the war in Afghanistan after 11 on September 2001, and many then said with irony that they were firing cruise missiles at pick-ups that cost several thousand dollars.

Cruise missiles embody the Western model, which implies that since we do not want to take risks, do not want to approach the target, we will use systems that have an exorbitant cost of millions of dollars. This can be justified when we are opposed to an air defense system and want to neutralize its facilities before proceeding with the use of forces aviation in a calmer and less risky rhythm.

But in today's situation there is no risk of opposition to air defense, because Russia is an ally of Bashar Assad, who, in turn, is the only one in this conflict that possesses anti-aircraft complexes. That is, here the purpose of this operation is different.

The same effect could be achieved by military aircraft, which is participating in the battles for the second week?

Yes, I think that, by and large, cruise missiles may not have been the best way to deliver the required amount of explosives to the target. They definitely had an alternative.

In addition to the political and diplomatic message, can we see a demonstration for potential customers? After all, the countries of this region are now in the process of re-equipment.

Yes, a demonstration of opportunities may be needed, on the one hand, in order to intimidate potential adversaries, for example, the West or allies of the West. But on the other hand, try to fill up the list of orders of the Russian defense industry.

We have little detailed information about the goals. As you said, is this type of missile usually used against objects that are well fortified, against bunkers?

Cruise missiles are usually used against immovable objects. They can not hit mobile targets, because the guidance system does not allow it. Thus, they are used against infrastructure, against buildings more or less fortified. Not necessarily super strengthened - it depends on the warhead, it depends on the flight path. But in any case, strikes are directed at buildings or at stationary objects. Such a missile is not intended to strike at the front line, for example, a cruise missile may not be suitable to support a strike by ground forces. This should be a blow deep into targets that are of strategic interest, such as the command headquarters.

Do you think the Russians warned their allies in the region about striking, be it Iranians, Iraqis or Syrians? This is the first part of the question. And the second is that if the NATO forces are still nearby, they should have noticed what happened?

Ideally, we have the right to hope that Russia warned not only the allies and the states over which these cruise missiles flew over, that is, Iran, Iraq and so on, but also the armed forces of the coalition. I don't know if that was the case. It would be interesting to find out. Exactly, given the presence in the region of reconnaissance aircraft sent there by the coalition, we should have noticed these missiles before they hit the targets.

This is the first such case, because I don’t remember that this type of missile was used during the Georgian campaign.?

Yes, I think this is really the first such case. In Georgia, they inflicted quite classic air-to-ground or ground-to-ground strikes; they were short range, nothing that could have a distance of one and a half thousand kilometers. There is indeed a strategic application. It is a political and diplomatic tool to declare that Russia is a power that can perform strategic tasks at long distances, and not just near its borders, that it is a power that can influence regional conflicts beyond what they call their "near abroad".

      In connection with the expert’s stated position and opinion, an immediate question arises, and to which category of countries do France, Australia, Italy, Germany, Britain belong, as the leading countries of Western Europe, to regional or world powers?
      Now the West estimates this factor solely by the volume of GDP produced by the country per unit of time, and impunity in international robbery. At the same time, excluding such parameters as territory, population, education and the level of scientific and technical progress, the armed forces and their quality, possession of the enemy’s weapons of mass destruction.

        What cynicism in the statement of this "expert"
        He does not care about the Syrians. He does not care about ISIS.
        For him, these are just reasons for speaking out.
        Fascists under new masks destroy people.
        Thousands of people died.
        Millions of people are forced to flee.
        According to him, Russia does not fight evil spirits, but only demonstrates opportunities in the West.
        Yes, you’re an expert!
        What would you say and in what tone if these creatures cut your family.
        And what would you say about the people who came to save your family and your life.
        A demonstration of power is either help and the fight against terror.
        And it’s easy to climb with tips on how to deliver ammunition to the head of a terrorist.
        And if during this delivery you put in pants, so go wash, otherwise the stench has spread all over the world.

        When false rating agencies evaluate GDP, they don’t reveal one nuance, if we take the GDP of Western countries, then the lion's share of their superiority over others is the service sector. They have the same Hollywood account, where one film can cost over a billion for a price, etc. If you take the Forbes list, then Bill Gates is in the lead with his virtual production, i.e. virtually nothing, media moguls, such as owners of CNN, etc. And there is also a huge securities market. If we take the share of real industrial production and agriculture, then we will not see our monstrous lag, and given the fact that the population of our country is half the size of the United States and three times the EU, it turns out that we are completely at the level. Sanctions have shown that we are self-sufficient, incl. in industry and agricultural. In the field of high technologies, on the crest of scientific and technical progress, for example, in the nuclear industry, space rocket, jet engine building and naturally defense industry, we surpass them in almost everything. They are not self-sufficient in raw materials, definitely, they are not self-sufficient in these areas, so they remove restrictions on the supply of heptyl because their EU space program, depending on our chemists, and NASA so far only rests on our engines ...

            I agree, I launched a death row, but Roscosmos has no dependence on heptyl and Russia does not buy it, and they worry that their programs will suffer because of sanctions. In August, NASA extended the contract with Roscosmos as monopolists for the delivery of astronauts to the ISS.

          I agree that there are areas of science and technology where we are ahead of the rest. For example - a new generation nuclear power plant! Agricultural in the Krasnodar Territory produces wheat at 45-50 centners per hectare (I remember in the USSR it was 12-18). But there are lags: microelectronics technology, the production of radio components, the lack of its own operating system. Any "partners" of the strong do not like, but respect. We have no choice but to close our gaps. There would be an understanding of leadership and desire.

          Such hollow patriotism is much more harmful than a whole battalion of saboteurs. And so far, there are only a few of our "points of excellence", moreover, in the most strategically significant areas of science, industry, and agricultural production.
          This must be soberly assessed and understood that we still have a chance to restore everything that the liberal government destroyed in thirty years, while the main enemy calmed down, relaxed and began to rot. But this is possible under one condition: change the model of economic development and remove all liberal cadres from power. Everything! at the very root! And as quickly as possible.

          I agree with you. But the military power of the Russian state can only rest on a society consolidated by the Idea, high-class free higher education for young people, which is the only one that can, taking all the best from the older generation, rebuild modern industrial production and Science, turn the agricultural sector into a highly productive production that fully provides food independence of the country. To revive the world's best free medicine and destroy the current liberal-financial web, along with spiders. There is no other solution.

      Expert Brewstolen: “Absolutely, given the presence in the region of reconnaissance aircraft sent there by the coalition, we should have noticed these missiles before they hit the targets.”

      US State Department, John Kirby: "I can’t confirm at all that the Russians did it at all."


      So the expert’s key phrase is “we should have noticed”.
      Should.
      But they did not notice.

      That’s why they quickly composed a fake about the detected missile failures and the fall in Iran.

      Actually in the states, this news is spinning on all channels for the second day.

    I believe that this, of course, is primarily a demonstration for the West. You look at how the Americans were taken aback at first, and then fell into a heart-rending cry that the missiles were also unsuitable and that four had fallen before reaching. For them, it was a shock and their intelligence once again screwed up.

      It is clear that it was a green whistle to the west, that we have something to meet and carry out, we are not the same as 10 years ago.
      More important, in my opinion, this phrase
      But besides this, in this you need to see the desire of the Russians to create the image of a great power,
      .
      Those. to us, and at the same time to the whole world, they are strenuously imposing the position of vainly puffing up to become a superpower of the world dwarf.
      These stsuki already forgot how trembling 30 years ago.
      They do not understand that Russia is historically EMPIRE!
      And empire is the essence, superpower!
      We do not need to prove anything.
      And we do not need to look back at the jackal barking, we need to do our own thing, to defend our interests against all odds!
      I repeat, RUSSIA THE BIGGEST AND RICHEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!
      This is what lies at the basis of all conflicts and wars of Russia with anyone for centuries.
      Nothing has changed, discard the husks of rhetoric, what's in the balance? Russia alone owns unimaginable wealth! HERE IT IS!

      As soon as the powers that be begin to flirt with "partners", Russia will necessarily lose something, it becomes weaker.
      We are a SELF-SUFFICIENT country!
      Why the hell are we, by and large, the West? Yes, and the East.
      Just instead of boosting our economy, we invested the Reserve Fund in various foreign papers, which, as Ukraine is now, at one point want to reset all our “partners”.
      We talked with the Olympics, as now with the World Cup.
      Where is heavy engineering? Where is the industry? Where is education, healthcare? Where is the agriculture?
      GDP announces import substitution, and officials and bankers are already rubbing their hands in anticipation of wild loans, kickbacks, etc.

      Why is this all?
      Yes, so far we have won tactically, but ...!
      No matter how it looked like a throw of our landings in Pristina, they rushed, and surrendered at the top, in the end we are out!

          because... request the most reasonable answer that could be ... we have Gazprom a national treasure ... and everything else too. already said that in the days of Gorbachev and now we have everything for external use, but for the inside a complete failure. It’s getting harder and harder for the people every day if a person like Shoigu’s economy really supports his industry, not the military — everything is somehow getting better. While the people have a patriotic upsurge after the Crimea and Syria, much can be done, but what will happen in a couple of years? Is it possible that we will miss opportunities in the "restructuring" ??

    I think this is actually a demonstration of ability. The real goal (here I’m not talking about the physical goal in the person of the “Islamic State) - it is the West and its allies to whom Moscow wants to send a clear message.
    I really hope that they have this message correctly will accept.

    The "lights" of the world and all environs are nervously smoking. Again a tub of lies in Our direction. Oh well. Smiles! Such a reaction clearly shows not the ability to hold a punch .... and the lack of a coherent strategy. All this suggests that once again "unexpectedly, at the beginning of winter, snow fell." CONCLUSION: DO NOT dig another hole! Do not be dashing while it is quiet!
    Good girl V.V. Putin !!! A good gift for D.R. yourself and all of us !!!

    With the missiles and the consequences it’s clear. I smiled most of all how it was all done. Quiet triumph of DR Putin, and a massive blow with strategic missiles, from where they did not wait. Such a slap in the face from the "master's" table to partners ... Unfortunately, my birthday is only once a year

    I agree with the author. Putin is tired of living according to concepts. American concepts. He was tired of being constantly invited to a democratic thieves ’gangway (G8 or G29) and presented with something. It is worth showing the teeth as mongrels begin to bustle, and thieves in law fuss.

    Ideally, we have the right to hope that Russia warned not only the allies and states over which these cruise missiles flew, that is, Iran, Iraq and so on, but also the coalition armed forces. I don’t know if that was so. It would be interesting to know about this.

    Well, of course. Allies. Just do not understand in what place. When the chosen ones hammer on whom they want and where they want, they didn’t ask someone for permission. Or warn. Here recently in Afghanistan, doctors without borders were "warned", but late.

    DR GDP, or, otherwise, the flights of our Kyrgyz Republic gave the West the "opportunity" to try on the fate of those on whose head such surprises fly. And that bothered them. War on foreign territory "has gone out of fashion"; now, whoever starts a war (against us) gets it right away on his territory.

    That is, it is more a message to rivals and opponents of Russia than the real need to use such weapons to solve combat missions in Syria?
    I think this is actually a demonstration of ability. The real goal (here I’m not talking about the physical goal represented by the “Islamic State”) is the West and its allies, which Moscow wants to send a clear message.

    I think, I think ... Faster, however, you need to think!

    The Caspian argument is like a crowbar against which there is no reception.

    Applied timely and convincingly.

    A small boat (about 1 thousand tons of displacement) from a remote water area is capable of doing big things, including with large cruisers and aircraft carriers in many tens of thousands of tons.

    It is hoped that the West and others hinted at this as an argument of real, not "soft," strength, to which only they listen.

    In this situation, we need more missiles and boats, but less euphoria.

    "Signal to the West" is an expert on the participation of the Caspian flotilla in the Syrian war. "
    Drive your Experts to the 5th point!
    What is the “signal”? Our ships for the first time in more than 10-15 years did not launch a missile attack on “imaginary ships.” The states have vast experience in using such weapons and proven tactics of action. And they have decent experience.
    In order to inflate the “Signal to the West” as much as possible from such an “event,” one must be full of degenerate ... The person who said to evolution: “Back!”

    I understand that the articles on the website are designed for patriots and with reality 98% of the articles have only an indirect relationship, but roll up balls for videos so much ...

    “If this is not convincing, then the next stage is strategic bombers, and if it still does not convince, then the Strategic Missile Forces. All“ Toyota in the trash. ”And where will“ your carts ”be? The sandbox has ended. RUSSIA is the Power!”

    To tell you a secret that the concept of "Power" implies a normal standard of living and a stable economy. And we have everything from the 5th point. The government only raises money. Moreover, Putin will not convince anyone. He will be convinced very quickly. Yes, so that we have a loaf of bread will be worth 1 rubles. And then no planes will fly. There will be nothing to support them.

Putin is not a bunny with ears and we have a mess more than we would like, but tomorrow we can close all borders, refuse the dollar and the euro and live on our own, in rubles and yuan. And on the street no one will die of hunger. Dependence on the West, it is a dependence on comfort, and not a question of survival.

    Starting perfume gauges is a waste of money. And the opportunity to experience them is worth a lot. The launch of such missiles is economically justified only against developed countries, which have something to lose and in a war with which it is desirable to minimize civilian casualties. And so the price for an ax is about $ 1 million, for a hummingbird a little cheaper.

    West signal received
    The command of the US armed forces today takes the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt out of the Persian Gulf.
    An aircraft carrier formation with more than five thousand personnel and 65 fighters is leaving the Persian Gulf tonight.
    The weakening of the US military presence in the Persian Gulf is taking place against the backdrop of a buildup of Russian military operations in Syria.
    With the departure of Theodore Roosevelt in the Persian Gulf for the first time since 2007, not a single American aircraft carrier will remain on combat alert.
    After Russian warships rained their cruise missiles at militants in Syria, military officials said they were withdrawing an aircraft carrier from the Persian Gulf. The vessel will officially leave the bay, at around 11 pm Eastern time.

    “Russia remains a joker in the region,” said Peter Daley, a retired vice admiral of the fleet and general director of the American Naval Institute.

    Obama declared ISIS the # 1 global threat. And Russian as a threat number 2. And then the Russians were upset. It hurts, they don’t like being second. They sat down, drank vodka, consulted with the bears, and decided to smuggle the whole ISIS to their mother. So that no one can doubt. Russians are the first in everything

    Do you believe that the "defense industry", which was destroyed for about 30 years, has suddenly risen? Me not. I see defense enterprises around, they are also "nothing", they eke out a dull existence, working with the same junk that remained from the Union.

    This small boat from a remote audience is not capable of doing big things with cruisers and aircraft carriers. The whole mistake is that the writers forget that the CALIBER is a family of missiles. The Ship-to-Earth missile (3M14) has a true range of 1,5, and possibly 2,5 thousand kilometers.

    But the anti-ship - only about 400 km (the commander of the Caspian flotilla called the number 375 km (I met the numbers 440-600 km, although there is no confirmation). So, even from 600 km he will not reach the Persian Gulf. 375-400 he and Black time does not completely block ...

    By the way, I personally think that in vain they combined the OCD. More precisely, they gave one name to everyone in vain. At least earlier anti-ship (3M54, 3M54-1) were called "Turquoise", and 3M14 - "ship-land" - called "Caliber". And now a lot of confusion brings "into the minds"
