State Department could not confirm reports of authoritative publications about the fall of Russian missiles in Iran

54
State Department spokesman John Kirby was unable to confirm press reports about the alleged fall in Iran of Russian missiles fired at ISIS facilities in Syria, reports RIA News.




“I can’t confirm it now,” Kirby told reporters.

Earlier, Bloomberg, Reuters and France-Press agencies, as well as CNN, referring to unnamed high-ranking sources, said that “four Russian cruise missiles launched from the Caspian Sea towards Syria lost their targets and exploded in Iran.”

"No matter how unpleasant and" unexpected "for our colleagues at the Pentagon and Langley, yesterday’s blow was accurate weapons on ISIS infrastructure in Syria - after all, all the missiles launched from ships found their targets, "
The spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, Igor Konashenkov, commented on Thursday the Western media reports.

He stressed that if the media information was true, then Russia "would have to admit that the objects of the terrorist group IG in Syria located at a considerable distance from each other exploded by themselves."

“Unlike CNN, we don’t tell with reference to anonymous sources, but show the launches of our missiles and the targets they hit practically in real time ... when performing such operations, the target image is always recorded before and after the strike”,
said Major General, adding that in Syria, around the clock monitor the situation of Russian drones.

        Here's a cool comment on our missile strike -
        Dear readers and commentators, now is exactly one day since Europe ceased to exist on the world map together with the American missile defense system that did not track the launches and flights of our "Calibers". After suppressing an enemy missile defense system, heavier missiles usually operate. This is in the event that in the West someone gets it into their heads to conflict with Russia.

        Now about the liberals, who proclaimed the launches of our missiles as "the funeral of 50 million dollars in the sands of Syria in honor of the birthday of VVP", no guys, this is the funeral in the sands of Syria of a multi-billion dollar American missile defense project in Europe ...

        Good night, Europeans ...

          Why dollars if rubles? What is the result of the course? And at the rate, are we buying cruise missiles from the United States?

      The representative of the State Department can lie. And to give evidence of this nonsense is no longer obtained. All these tales are designed for a zombie western man who does not view alternative media. The Americans were afraid of such a demonstration - they write on the Internet.

        This nonsense is an elementary self-hypnosis. Russian ships of the coastal zone, which are impossible to see and which are not in the ocean but in their waters, used KR, while ALL missiles found targets and were not shot down. That is, the US has no antidotes against our Caliber and automatically any ship, house, bunker in the depths of its territory is under the gun. At the same time, our submarines and small ships equipped with these missiles do not even leave the territory of their state. We add to this the fact that now the unsinkability and invulnerability of Amer’s AUGs when using non-nuclear weapons against them, history is already. And the AUG for the USA was one of the main levers of power around the world. And on the 7th of the USA and their satilitites saw that their power was dispelled in the haze of the Caliber flying away towards the target.

          This nonsense is an elementary auto-suggestion.

          Rather like this:These gentlemen proceeded from the correct calculation that the more monstrous you lie, the sooner they will believe you. Ordinary people rather believe a big lie than a small one. This corresponds to their primitive soul. They know that in the small things they themselves are able to lie, well, and they really are too shy to lie very much. A big lie doesn’t even occur to them. That is why the masses cannot imagine that others would be capable of too monstrous lies, too unscrupulous distortions of facts. And even when they are told that it is a lie of monstrous proportions, they will still continue to doubt and tend to believe that there is probably still some truth to this. That is why virtuosos of lies and entire parties, built solely on lies, always resort to this particular method. These liars are well aware of this property of the masses. Only lie stronger than that - anything from your lies will remain.

    A simple and effective tactic that has already set the teeth on edge: to smear it, citing unnamed sources. And then it doesn't matter, people will forget, but the "residue" will remain.
    Moreover, it is useless to blame them and the media, as they are only one side of the coin. For this simple scheme to work, you need appropriate listeners who do not try to analyze what they are given to the media and look for cause-effect relationships, to include a thought. request

    The reports of the CNN TV channel, citing unnamed sources about allegedly Russian missiles fired at Syria and dropped in Iran, look like "sewage sewerage", said Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova.

    On her Facebook page, the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry noted the lack of professionalism of CNN, which refers to anonymous sources in such topics.

    “I read CNN's reports that“ Russian cruise missiles fell in Iran. ”Interestingly, this is already out of impotent anger, or what? And these endless links of the channel to sources are more and more like a sewage system,” Zakharova wrote.

    article is nonsense. why should the State Department confirm any authoritative publications there, if the State Department itself has announced the fall of 4 missiles in Iran, and stated that this is accurate and verified information. the State Department is not the body that confirms or refutes the information, once again, of any publications there. It’s unfortunate that you own distorted information.
