I'm sure they'll hear a blast on their soil because a blip appears on radar, but that all depends on how many jets or cruise missiles are used in the initial strike.

I would have presumed Syrian/Iranian radar system, in today's day-and-age, would be suffice to detect incoming craft over their airspace but it appears they need foreign assistance like everything else.

Odd.

Waste of time and money. Not going to be able to stop a TLAM strike even if they could see it coming.

just solidifies my belief that an inevitable conflict looms between another two powerful military alliances.
don't know how fast they will escalate the entire thing, but the fact that the opposition furthers the divide as we do, leaves no choice but an eventual first strike and the bleed over effects from such.
the fact we are in the age of technological advancement makes the whole thing scarier then world war 1 or 2 ever was.

innocent civilians? you mean that the fact the terrorists in Homs are using innocent civilians as Human Shields? and what about those supposed videos from Youtube supposedly from Homs? how did that Video Guy knew where and when the Supposed strike was going to happen right in front in the video?



I question that.

Maybe the Syrians will have a chance to get off some of their chemical warheads now. By treaties they are permitted to have them.

This should be interesting.

Very well said! further any war will have oil prices shooting to $200/barrel and then tens of millions people around the world will be laid off from work, prices of common basic everyday items doubling or tripling, many folks will lose their homes and cars, many industries will disappear.............why so much misery to global population for few hundred Ak47 and RPG firing terrorists in Homs. Does concern for common person hold any good any more? or is it just the game of Neocon bankers? Evilness!

They won't even see it coming as Suter technology allows radar operating systems to be hijacked and then radars will not see anything except peace in the air. If Radars are taken out by cruise missiles then a mere phone call to Iran will get them prepared to what package is soon arriving.

Well Russia plainly made it clear that it strongly opposes any intervention by US or Europe, and for good reasons. Meanwhile if Russia can squeeze some money out of Syria for upgrades like this, then all the better.

Don't mistake Russia's stance as blind support of Assad and his actions. Rather Russia recognizes that this is a complicated conflict with no clear good/bad or black/white - just lots of gray. Russia believes that it should play out its course naturally, meaning without intervention by the West. You see, the victor is always right, and when US/NATO decide to get involved and decide who the victor will be - you can bet that whoever they support will be portrayed in the best possible light. In Libya US decided that the rebels should be the victor - and behold the Western media portrayed them as some goddamn innocent saints. But this ain't a Rambo movie - facts are complicated.

It is also not about the fact that Russia has so much vested in Assad. It is more about Russia being increasingly concerned with US/NATO policing the world affairs, and increasing their interventionism. This is where Kremlin has decided to make a firm stand, to make its concerns very clear to the West.


Turn the US's trigger happy bravado attitude around - pretend that some uncontent Mexicans suddenly start a revolt, and Russia bombs the crap out of the current government and pays the rebels off to be their puppet, How happy is the US going to be to sit by?

You don't think US has tried to bribe Russia off so that Russia gives its consent on Syria and Iran? I am not necessarily talking about money, but lets say political favors. There is more to this than pure profit.
