Sorry, I've missed a few pages since this a.m. Has this nugget from Reuters been posted?

JUST IN: Syrian warplanes take off from air base hit by U.S., carry out strikes in Homs countryside - Syrian observatory for human rights.

there is a very simple way of looking at this. thinking that the NKs, Russians, CHinese, or the Arabs are scared by this is BS propaganda, THEY all have nukes. Stop bringing missiles to a nuke fight if you dont want to look like a child. if this was meant to scare syria? then we just look like some bully kicking someone when they're down, a very weak half state who's children we suddenly care about.

Abu Ivanka al-Amreeki Arabs on social media are showering US President Donald Trump with thanks and praise after he ordered the first direct US military action against Syrian government forces. The US conducted the strikes on a Syrian air base in the early hours of Friday following a suspected chemical attack on a rebel-held town. Shortly after, some Arab social media users started referring to the president as Abu Ivanka - Father of Ivanka, as a sign of respect and endearment. Others referred to him as Abu Ivanka al-Amreeki - Father of Ivanka the American, complete with a religious beard.

You "read a story" - that's cute.

During an interview with The Sunday Times, Mr Assad was asked if he sleeps at night with all the children being killed in Aleppo and other parts of Syria.

He reportedly laughed and replied: “I know the meaning of that question. I sleep regular, I sleep and work and eat normal and do sports.”

For some Syrians in U.S., strikes turned Trump from villain to hero

Russia have sent a warship to the US ship that fired the missiles - it's closing in.
oops.


Peacocks just put their tail feathers up..

but its still a peacock.


Well America is pretty poor any winning wars over the last 50 years. They's be on to a loser fighting Syria never mind Russia.


Eff off...

The last time the UK picked a fight, it took you months and a couple hundred troop loses to take an Island from ARGENTINA....yes Argentina!

Depressing false hope.

This was an exit from Syria, not an entrance. The civilian population is screwed.

No problem.

There is no difference in the signals from the satellites between commercial and military. The difference is in the receivers. These signals are travelling at almost 300,000 km/s and the speed required to measure distances to less than a meter is considerable. Theoretically, one could measure to the nearest millimeter, but we just don't have circuitry that fast/accurate.

Whenever an EM signal passes through matter, it is subjected to forces coincidental to that matter. Air, for instance, causes a tiny amount of gravitational lensing between molecules. It's too little to actually detect, but if the density varies enough between two air masses, the receiver will get one signal slightly delayed and think it is a small distance from where it is.

More sample times does help, as long as the error is only sporadic, like the reflections I mentioned. A smoothing function allows a glitch like that to be ignored temporarily, but it also means a little loss in accuracy and response times. So we have to choose: do we want absolute accuracy or absolute reliability? A lot of smoothing means more reliability, while less smoothing means more accuracy (even if the 'accuracy' is incorrect due to errors).

All controls use disturbance boundaries: if a disturbance (think wind, close explosions, etc.) exceeds the boundaries, the control system can no longer fully compensate. So what may be happening is this:

There is a glitch in the GPS signal that is not smoothed out.

The missile sees this as a course error and tries to compensate.

The glitch stops and the missile realizes it is off course.

The missile is now so far off course it cannot completely recover.

The result is that a missile, under the right conditions, can veer off course and be unable to hit with accuracy. The cause would be not allowing for intermittent GPS error in the design, probably by not smoothing the signal sufficiently. The reason to implement such a system could be the result of trying to improve accuracy beyond a needed level... after all, it's a bomb. Who cares if it misses by a centimeter? We (should) only care if it's several meters off at the end.

WTF....Seriously...This was a show



Two warplanes took off from a central Syrian airbase Friday hours after it was struck by US missiles and carried out bombing raids nearby, a monitoring group

The Britain-based group said the aircraft targeted territory controlled by the Islamic State jihadist group, which holds parts of the central Syrian province of Homs.

Early on Friday morning, the US military fired 59 Tomahawk missiles at the Shayrat air field in response to a suspected chemical attack this week that has been widely blamed on the Damascus regime.

A Syrian military source told AFP that Syria’s armed forces were warned about possible US military action hours before the strike took place.

“We took precautions in more than one military point, including in the Shayrat airbase. We moved a number of airplanes towards other areas,” the source said.

US officials said Russia’s military in Syria had been informed of the strike beforehand in order to avoid casualties that could prompt a broader crisis.

The US said the missiles targeted radars, aircraft, and air defense systems and destroyed around 20 Syrian planes,
but said the runway was intact.


Russia’s military said the strike had an “extremely low” military impact, with fewer than half of the 59 missiles reaching the airbase

Sprung to mind from back in 2013. Now removed but archived...


Leaked emails have allegedly proved that the White House gave the green light to a chemical weapons attack in Syria that could be blamed on Assad's regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country. A report released on Monday contains an email exchange between two senior officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence where a scheme 'approved by Washington' is outlined explaining that Qatar would fund rebel forces in Syria to use chemical weapons. Barack Obama made it clear to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad last month that the U.S. would not tolerate Syria using chemical weapons against its own people.

Trump did a false flag attack to counter a false flag to please the globalists. Daesh and the moderate rebels think it was a real attack thus attacking the airbase but surprise mf and got taken out. Wow.

In my Optimal Control Theory class, the lecturer decided to touch on history to help us to understand the range of applications. The following is paraphrased from one of his lectures on the development of an optimal control law to minimize time to interception of a target:

During the height of the Cold War, both American and Russian engineers were developing the optimal control law. The Russians finished first, but the Americans got credit for the development. The reason was that the Russians spent their energy on producing the control law and the Americans spent more time publishing results.

The Russians I know from school all have this attitude: get it done, get it done NOW, and worry about who gets the credit later. It makes me wonder how many of the technical developments attributed to the DoD were actually first developed by the Russians.

From what McCain was alluding to on Wolf Blitzer earlier, I think the major goal right now is to try and ground Russian and Syrian aircraft so the US has air superiority.

The first reason was the chem attacks. Now they're rallying against barrel bombs and hospitals being hit.

I think that it's a slow progression of a two pronged tactic.
1) Take out some planes in reaction to attacks on civilians.
2) Get the globe against these attacks on civilians so that they are behind the idea of grounding Russian/Syrian forces, diplomatically if possible.

That's just my guess anywho.
