Calm down people, it is still September and whole October is 10 days ahead. “Traditionally speaking” anything “can” and “will” happen in these “special periods of time”.



Stay alert and awake…

com'on ya'll ...

this is the up-to-date version of Asymmetric Warfare


the Russians have advanced technology from during the Obama era of Military disintegration policies...


As a result, the Western coalition uses the tactic of an overwhelming barrage to hide behind, thus avoiding actual pinpointing of the culprit...


there are assigned units who operate as 'black-ops', which are hidden among the 'western forces', some may even behave as 'bad actors' -> such is the contorted nature of this era of Asymmetric Warfare

If this is Israel, then God speed.

Israel has a sovereign right to defend herself, including preemptive and preventative strikes to degrade the war fighting capabilities of their enemies.

Israeli PM Netanyahu has expressed "regret" to Vladimir Putin over the downing of Russia's Il-20 plane. He pinned the blame for the incident on Syria, but added that Moscow and Tel Aviv should continue coordinating their efforts.

"Netanyahu stressed the importance of continuing coordination in the security area between Israel and Russia, which prevented many losses on the both sides over the past three years," the press service said on Tuesday, after Putin and the Israeli PM spoke by telephone.

In line with Israel's previous statements, Netanyahu blamed the Syrian military for the incident.

He promised to share all the information with Russia to assist with the investigation into the plane's downing. He added that the Israeli Air Force chief was ready to go to Moscow personally to further collaborate in relation to the incident.

The Russian Il-20 aircraft, with 15 crew members on board, was shot down by a Syrian S-200 surface-to-air missile late on Monday. Syrian air defenses were trying to repel an Israeli attack on their positions in the northwestern province of Latakia. The Russian military pinned the blame for the incident on Tel Aviv, accusing its jets of using the Russian plane for"cover" during the strikes.

The incident has heated up political tensions and raised questions as to whether relations between Russia and Israel would be impacted following the destruction of the plane and the tragic loss of life.

Anything that is reported on the news always has an agenda, for all you know they are bombing themselves.

That's really smart if it's true that Israel used the Russian planes for "cover". I'm a bit surprised this hasn't escalated yet.

The reason it hasn't escalated is no matter what its there fault. Ok they misidentified the aircraft because other aircraft were operating tin the area? Any air defense needs to be able to distinguish between friend and foe. They sold a system to syria that cant verify a target? Syria needs to ask for their money back.
