Russian sends warships to Mediterranean: Interfax


www.nbcnews.com

Interfax news agency quoted a source in the armed forces' general staff as saying a missile cruiser and an anti-submarine ship would arrive in the coming days because of the "well-known situation" - a clear reference to the conflict in Syria.

I wonder if this puts a time limit on Obama's intentions?
When the Russian ships arrive will this limit the US's ability to strike?
Do the Russian ships have the capability of stopping the cruise missiles?

I only have questions, as this situation continues to droll on, it seems that Obama's intent to strike at Syria's military infrastructure is losing its purpose.

Well the POTUS is about to speak in the rose garden in a few minutes, I guess we will see if his position changes.

Well its been along time since the last good navy battle. 1983 falklands I beleive so guess it time to see if all those billion spent on warships are still worthwhile.

They might stop some of them, but they aren't really anti-missile ships. One of them is, as stated, and anti-submarine warfare ship that hunts subs. The other is more of a strike ship, designed to launch large numbers of missiles, both anti-ship and land attack.

I'm wondering. Am I the only one who would like to see Russia give America a little knuckle wrap? If the States attacks Syria and Russia attacks back, would you be mad?

I seriously doubt any cruise missiles will be launched if the Russians are going to make an appearance.

The chest thumping is almost audible way over here in Wisconsin...

Thup Thup Thup Thup Thwap.

I wouldn't want to be on a boat in the Mediterranean, surrounded by hostile countries with navies and silkworm missiles. It's quite the bottle-neck any sane person would avoid being in if one could.

The Silkworm against a VLS equipped Aegis is about as overrated as you get. Even the Sunburn against SeaRAM is matched pretty nicely.

Does Syria have the time to get Russia to help it set up some "Iron Dome" like missile defense system....

I just can't imagine how telegraphing the exact attack can produce an effective result.

And yes, I think that if the Russian ships get there when the attack begins, that they outta shoot the missiles down....if they can

Not because I want to see a war start, but because this strategy that the POTUS is using, is stupid!

It would take weeks to move a system like that into place. NATO "rushed" Patriot batteries to Turkey and took about a month to get them there. Add in training to operate it, and you're looking at a couple of months minimum.

Well thank the mod : ----------------- as I posted this thread originally in the Breaking Alternative News Forum....and it has since been moved here.
Which I don't see how it belongs in the WW3 Forum, if anything it would belong to the M.E. Forum



But...since this thread has been relocated out of its intended Forum...I guess your statement is completely valid.
