Lets not get to hasty WW3 is not even on the agenda yet we still have got to hear from France and the US and a change of tides could occur if Cameron decided its the UK's legal duty to take action with UN resolution but as far as I know UK looks like they could be backing off which leaves the US and France,

And if the US goes in without a UN passing could lead to profound consequences.

We will just have to see how it all plays out.

However don't expect a UK response to soon if otherwise.

Im not expecting a response by any of them. I see where the US is in consultation with Russia about a watered down response.

They wouldn't send an E-4 for him. They had a Gulfstream IV that performed a similar mission that they would use. The E-4 would only follow the President around if it was performing that mission.

You are the right person to ask.

If the E-6 which the US have statioined Down there, begins to fly. Would that be a indication that something is up very soon?

While we're on the subject, could Zaphod comment on how relevant this is.



It's an E-4B apparently these aircraft are destined to keep the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other “decision makers” alive to direct nuclear (and conventional) forces, by receiving, verifying and relaying EAM (Emergency Action Messages).
One has been seen in Turkey recently.

Could be anything when was this taken? I doubt it was today...would be kinda hard to keep that thing flying for a whole week unti this "strike" comes to be.

Both the E-6 and the E-4 are Command and Control (C2) aircraft, so if either of them are seen flying in the area then there's a good chance that something is coming. If an E-6, E-3, and E-8 all launch together, then I'll almost guarantee that something is going to happen. Especially if the E-6 hadn't been flying in previous days.

Reportedly that's the one that Hagel is on. He supposedly went from Malaysia, to Jordan, to Turkey (which is an odd route to take). If it is that one, then it probably just stopped for consultations with Turkey, and then continued home. The question becomes, is it still there. If it's still there, then they're probably using it for its C2 role, and it will command the strikes.

Thanx Zaphod, I've got a really bad feeling about all this crap, I've never really believed that the predator class would be so self destructive but recently I've had to re-evaluate.

There's an impressive OoB in the region already so there has been very little movement required from the mainland and other forces. What has been moved from the mainland just makes it that much more potent of a force.

I think any attack will come from the sea. Maybe a cruise missile directed at the airbase in Hama


It looks very lonely out there exposed. I know they have radar systems but they must be out-dated by western standards.

So any word on the size of the Naval ship buildup out there. Between all these countries I'm sure there is a massive buildup?

What the Norm for this type of situation?

It's not that big, really - the US has several ships in the area, as does the UK but our capabilities in this mission are limited to the single submarine we have down there, HMS Tireless.

So the E-6 and the E-4 are aircraft that are launched when a some thing bad is on the cards are we talking Nuclear here or am I just jumping the gun.

Surely these plans are used for other purposes ?

Their original mission was nuclear command and control but they can be used for conventional attacks too. They free up the E-3 crews to worry about fighter direction instead of trying to do fighter direction and C2 at the same time.

The double standards of the US when they go around blaming for things they already done.

Does Agent Orange US used in Vietnamese come to mind ?

Well seems like Plan A (Chemical attack) is now toast...

Plan B will be a US aircraft getting shot down (near) Syrian airspace and a US warship being struck by an Anti-ship missile in the Med off the coast of Syria ....

C...
