Tip my hat to Russia and Putin. A question was asked in the OP as to how the US has not been effective in 1 years time. Well the US is money grabbing. Prolong the war as long as possible. They keep getting funding.

Looks like Putin has cast himself in the role of the new John Wayne. I wonder how hollyweird and the msm are going to spin this for osama, er, I mean obama?

Just reading the news article and seeing the supposed flight path of the misiles, I got to really hand it down to Ruskies to have nailed all thier targets with that kind of precision.

The margin of error there is zero, given no civilian causualities for MSM to spin some propaganda off of this.

Now that's a formiddable force to contend with and a hell of a b1tch slap to IS.

Just wow...

Actions speak louder than words.

As in, Vlads actions in the past week or two speak volumes about the propaganda spewed in the last 2 years from ISISUSACIAHOUSEOFSAUDMOSSAD telling the world that Assad is chemical-weapons-on-civilians Bad Bad man and therefore freedom and democracy or ISIS beheads and burns Christians and raizes historical sites until the western world gives the green light to ISISUSACIAHOUSEOFSAUDMOSSAD to install puppet regime-for-pipeline in Syria.

Tis all about the Oil & Gas.

The russians should arm and aim such a smart weapon directly into the office of the creep buying ISIS their oil...

To put it in simple terms. If a revolution were to happen in America and china supplied the Free American Army would you lable our militias terrorists. I didn't think so.


Another deluded American?

Let's assume your position.

You have the una bomber, and numeric individuals in the US who shoot people in colleges and other areas. Let's assume, these individuals as well as other "potentially" identical individuals met on ATS and create a group, called "idiots for free america". And China supplied them with missiles.

Would this make them "non terrorists"?

Let's define our ideals, as to what a "terrorist" is. If a group of people, that oppose a regime ... only have the ability to oppose it, with the direct military aid of foreign powers. Then they are terrorists.

If this group, is large enough, to maintain it's own position against the government ... if only provided with weapons and training. Then we can call them "opposition" forces.

What is the difference? If the only way for you to win a war, is with the direct aid of the US ... then you don't represent the majority. Thus, you are not a legitimate oppositiion force. You are a terrorist, because the only thing you accomplish is the destruction of the country.

The way I read this, is ....

Dear Mr. US/UK/ISIS

We here in Russia, have small force in Syria. We do not intend to make a war, but in case you think that by using your newly gained ISIS (Advanced US) weaponry to destroy our basis. Then we assure you, we can kill you from far far away, with 100% precision ... anyways.

Have a nice day.

If fired from the south of the sea the missiles would only over fly over Iran and Iraq. My guess is that's where they came from.


I agree with you..... that is probably what happened however surely that's an infringement of sovereign airspace (unless without prior consent.?).....

It's a little bit like Britain having a go at Germany via French / Dutch airspace..?

You said it alright, the enemy gotta go back to the drawing board to reconsider any possible confrontation with Russia.

So far, all there operations are spot on. Their jets even picked up on Israeli fighter jets and escorted them back and only skimmed the Turkish airspace for mere seconds due to bad weather. Precision is sick.

Don't forget, they have subs on standby deployed somewhere in the meditarenean or caspian.

They are out to put an end to this extremists. Now it might just happen by the end of this week at the rate they are going at destroying key IS targets.

A good clean up job indeed, however I do have mixed emotions on this.

I feel for the IS fighters, but I got to also cheer the Russians for a feat of seeing the end of major crisis at it's root .

How do we know whether or not the missiles hit their actual targets? Because this man says so:


Later, the Russian defence ministry's Twitter feed showed footage of cruise missiles being launched, saying they "successfully hit all assigned #ISIS [IS] targets with high accuracy".
Col-Gen Andrey Kartopolov said that the cruise missiles targeted IS and al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front sites, including weapons production plants, command centres, ammunition dumps, fuel depots and training bases in the provinces of Raqqa, Idlib and Aleppo.


www.bbc.com...

Here's a bit of independent analysis:


The first batch of videos including 14 videos, 12 of which have now been geolocated. This has revealed the following information –

3 videos were verified as being in locations matching the title and description of the videos. In all 3 videos the targets of Russian bombing are described as “terrorists” rather than ISIS, which is taken as a catch all term for armed Syrian opposition groups.
5 videos gave locations that were accurate, but described the attacks as targeting ISIS when there is no known current ISIS presence in those areas.
2 videos gave the location as Raqqa, but were in fact filmed over 100 miles west of Raqqa in areas with no known ISIS presence.
1 video gave no location, but was geolocated to an area where there was no known ISIS presence, despite the title of the video claiming otherwise.
1 video gave a location at the entrance to Ma’aart al Nu’man but was geolocated to an area 20km away from Ma’aart al Nu’man.
Based on the videos geolocated thus far there is no indication that the Russian Ministry of Defence has targeted ISIS positions, or hit targets in Raqqa, despite claims to the contrary.

Looks like Damscuss isn't going to fall after all huh? Unless of course we decide to kick it up a notch.

I hope Russia is on their toes, they certainly doubled down.

So do I have this correct, Russia and China against the West/US via proxy. Will this stay proxy?

Dollars to donuts we can't trust India to take our side either. Pakistan? Not likely. Strategically speaking, who has the better nuclear armament placement? Assuming of course the above it true? I don't want to glow!

China intends to stand on the sidelines and pick up what's left.

Here is a video of the missiles being launched. It also has some animations of the routes taken.

The following footage shows the warships launching the Kalibr-NKs, proving Russia is able to conduct a US-like cruise missiles attack on a range of 1,000 km.

The original article in the opening post stated that it was with cooperation of the Iraqi and Iranian governments.

all Assad has to do is give the coordinates of his assets and Russia bombs everything else to hell....super simple. If I was Assad id be making announcements all over the country to tell non combatants to high tail it i side state controlled territory......the vacuum cleaner is coming.
