Parliamentary mandate for the participation of the Air Force in the operation the British government received on Wednesday evening.

“About an hour after the end of the voting in the parliament, Tornado aircraft flew from the Akrotiri base to attack IG positions in Syria,” the television station said in a statement.

Sky News later said that "two Tornado planes flew in the direction of Syria." In total, the attacks on the DAISH at the first stage will involve 8 airplanes.

On Wednesday, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said that he should not count on a quick completion of the operation.

“I hope that they (airstrikes) will not last four years. But I warn you that this will not last only a few months, ”he said.

        There are two options: either accuracy of pointing, but most likely these are free-falling FABs, or they place bombs at key points (at the exit from the storage, at a common pump or something else), so that with a minimum of damage, it will be impossible for some time to ship oil . And then it was easier for the pro-Basharovsk authorities to restore the same oil storage facilities.

    Well, what about the S-400 and the slogans that NATO aircraft will not slip into Syria? In September 2013, the United States refused to bomb Syria as soon as the Russian fleet was sent there, today NATO feels at home in the Syrian sky with deployed Russian air defense and airborne systems. This is not good.

    Does that mean so our skies were closed? We flew right over our base - bombed and back? And the fact that in Syria, except for our military, no one can fly, it seems to them all the same. Rather, they don't care about our military. Well, since the Turks even sell our planes with impunity, then what they are afraid of flying there. Healthy! And enough for the authors to write - DAISH - to write in Cyrillic capital letters of English words is stupid. In Russian it translates as "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant", i.e. ISIS, or simply IS.

      Enough for the authors to write - DAISH - to write uppercase English letters in Cyrillic
      First, the capital letters of the English words are ISIS. Secondly, DAISH is the first letters of Arabic (not English!) Words, which give a very dissonant combination for Arabs. So dissonant that the use of the abbreviation "Daesh" in the territories controlled by Daesh is prohibited on pain of cutting off the tongue or even the death penalty. Daesh is very similar to a word that can be translated as "crush", "trample", "sow discord", and therefore it easily becomes an object of ridicule. You too, I see, like ISIS, but ISIS annoys ... Are you, for an hour, not an Arab?

The same is with ISIS, Muslims have reason to object to such a name for shaitans. Well, Daesh, so Daesh, but personally, what is so "newfangled" here that hooked you to express your dissatisfaction?

    The ambiguity of the situation when the Erdogan regime is considered as an independent actor, separate from NATO and the USA, devalues ​​the Kremlin’s policy in B. Vostok, despite the presence of the S-400, Su-30, etc.
    The presence of the Air Force of Small Britain and the Fifth Reich on B.Vostok does not have military significance, since a ground operation is excluded. On the one hand, it might seem that NATO, having supported Turkey morally and politically after the demonstrative destruction of our Su-24 and killing a pilot, is embarking on systematic violations of the airspace of the SAR in order to morally and politically destroy the Assad regime and inflict political defeat on the Kremlin.
    But on the other hand, what is happening can mean our rapprochement with the Kurds and progress in relations between Assad and the Kurds, Iran and the Kurds on the extremely complex problem of Kurdistan. This may mark the beginning of the end of the Daesh project in this region.

    If the partners decide by force to eliminate the Russian contingent in Syria (though this is practically impossible in terms of making a political decision), the S-400 and S-300 in Moscow will not help much - from the Turkish border to the base in Latakia about 50 km and the Turkish tank attack cannot be repelled there will be neither strength nor opportunity.

    Russophobia as a form of life

    Zakhar Prilepin, writer

    Great Britain launched its first airstrikes against Islamic State positions. The British cannot skip the pie section. If they fit into the story, it means that they have data that the advantage is no longer in favor of the IG.
    A journalist from Kommersant-London, named Victor, menacingly told me that Russian soldiers in Syria are not working, but are “killing”; I hope that he will come this time and officially announce that the English pilots flew to kill.
    Perhaps even in the newspaper Kommersant-London he will write about it. The article can simply be called: “Assassins.” Or "British killers in action." Not for me to teach.
    But the Russian intelligentsia will now have significant relief. It would be unbearable for them if Russia had success in Syria (and Russia was successful in Syria, they just tried not to see this and did not see it).
    But since the next civilized people appeared in Syria, the most civilized of the civilized, who had already won the Second World War, it is clear who will now win the victory.
    If it happens, of course. Everything for you, our beloved opponent, if only you would not suffer.
    As Mitya Glukhovsky wrote: Russia, they say, cannot save Europe - “the rescue has not grown.” And if he had grown up, how would he write the next Metro series? Scary to imagine. And so - everything is normal. You can continue to work.
    Someone’s salvation doesn’t grow in any way, but someone’s thinker is so huge that you’re afraid for the thinker's skull: it will crack.
    Russophobia as a form of life, gloating as a form of thought.
