'Superior' Russian technology, and all that rubbish!

LOOOOOL.

As I'm having trouble seeing 3 Russian missiles miss their targets by that many miles I'd think they were aimed there purposely.So the Iranians can back engineer them.

The odd thing about this News is that no one can confirm anything... not even where the missiles crashed. That is a bit strange when you want to state that a missile have crashed. . You should be able to confirm a crash right?

When you observe a crash you know where and when it crashed....or it didnt happen...at all......Propaganda.


Exactly what I was thinking.

If the Russians wanted to give the Iranians a missile for 'back engineering'....it would come in a box...off a ship...with all technical data included.

Russia ships to Iran routinely. Including military equipment.

They blew up. According to Iranians in areas they hit there were explosion that shattered windows. This sort of equipment failure is not unusual for the Russians. Their defense industry has had problems producing quality advanced weapons systems in any numbers since all the skill worker took off after the fall of the USSR. The Indians have long complained of the Russian being unable to deliver a quality product on time, one of the reasons the have turned to the West for arms. The Russian design fine system but, have a hard to fielding them. Now when it comes to small arms they have that mastered. Ad that to poor maintenance do to training and funding and these problems are going to happen.

Remember Russia tries to maintain a military 1/3 the size of the US at !/15 the budget.

Well if That's true it seems Russia needs a serious upgrade to their cruise missile.Don't you think?

A reasonable assessment as usual Mr.Spad.Thank you.

Since you have a source the rest of us don't, feel free to post it.

So far, there has been a report of a crashed UFO, and a gas explosion.

There has been no pictures provided that can confirm or refute those claims.

The only pictures presented are pictures of a very small explosion with zero debris and a couple broken pieces of a polymer film (ironic, as those will crack and fall apart from UV exposure over time and the actual glass window right next to it, on the right, is undamaged) which rules out any drone impact of significant size and definitely any cruise missile. It would, however, be consistent with a gas canister explosion. Very small, with very few pieces to pick up.

Until we start to see something a little more substantial, I would say that I can find more 'explosive damage' within a 20 block radius of my current location...in Canada. Definitely more broken windows.

If it is actually determined that they lost cruise missiles, than yes. But, I am patient enough to wait until that is confirmed.

As I have said previously, Iranian youth (specifically uni students) aren't going to let Russian missiles hitting Iran slide. If there is evidence, they will do what they always do, and defy the government and post it for the world to see.

BBC is picking it up as well as several sources. Looks like it is a factual story so far....

I wouldn't put my money on this news, although I wouldn't exclude failures either. Numerous failures come to mind, and it's not the first time a missile misses an entire country either ... only the first russian one, that we know off.

Also possible that someone hit the self-destruct button.

Thank you for the links. I followed the ABC news to Oyan News, to view the images they have posted.

One thing I find very intriguing is the pictures of the broken glass. Having started my career in the glazing industry, it is one of the few things I am very comfortable and confident with.

That glass was not blown out by a shock wave. It was broken by a projectile. Was that projectile shrapnel from a missile? Hard to say. None of the pictures show any surrounding shrapnel damage, but, without knowing the surrounding area better, that could be reasonably explained.

Either way, very interesting. Glad nobody has been injured so far.

3 US "officials that were not authorized to comment" gave this news.

Russophobes dont even bother to check their sources. If it makes Russia look bad... run with it.

Russia and Iran have both said it is BS and nobody was authorized to say any different.

But here we are just eating it up like a bunch of retards.

True, but this could give Russia plausible deniability, when Iran comes out with their new cruise missile that looks exactly like the Russian's...or when one lands in Jerusalem in a few years. Russia can say: "We didn't sell it to them...they probably reverse-engineered it from those 4 that crashed in 2015...apparently, at least one of them must've had a soft landing and didn't detonate on impact."

None of those links were even news worthy. No evidence of a missile hitting Iran. Reports of a UFO and some broken glass. Thats it.

If the US has some evidence of this occurring then lets see it. Otherwise this is making the US look worse than Russia at the moment.

WOW!

That must be it. Russia is planning a mass conspiracy to whipe out all the Jews! Of course.

Were these three missiles all supposed to have come down at the same time?
If thats the case then hacking would be very likely!

Or its all just bs.

WOW. I was just thinking that only Iran wanted to 'wipe' Israel of the face of the earth...but YOUR conspiracy theory is much more grandiose. Great use of brain cells.
