What does that mean?
Was it incorrect info? Or does that mean they were taken down and thus didn't explode?

Also can anyone say if this has anything to do with the reports that Syria shot down a US jet and also 4 cruise missiles that dropped a few minutes ago? I found that to be very unlikely, but it was posted minutes before the Russian articles saying 2 ballistic missiles were noted (and possibly brought down).

*shakes head at the futility of war*

I trust and rely on the military, but what scares me is the idiot civilian leadership.

I wish some countries would stop exporting to us.. maybe some jobs would come back and people would start buying locally.

When i see something like this on the news, the first place i then check is BAN if there is nothing in BAN then i post it in the BAN forum.

I dont know why other members don't do this, thats what BAN is for.

sorry for my little rant.

Moving on....

this is undoubtedly very interesting, I have just heard a line that Israel have denied that they have launched any Missiles or detected any and other than these reports there does not seem to be any other kind of hostile action.

So conflicting reports.

If they were going towards Syria there might be an issue, since this would indicate an act of war, too. Syria wont wait for a missile to actually HIT a target.

Breaking News: Ballistic ‘objects’ detected by Russian radar fell into sea: RIA news agency

Well maybe Russia is just as sick and tired of the false flags and lies as we are, and has decided "Screw it. They want to play games, tear down regimes, and frame people? Well we can do the same."

Problem is, your assuming Russia is better then the US, As much as I hate myself for agreeing with Putin's/Russia stance towards certain conflicts, one most never forget that Putin is evil.

Georgia/ Kossovo...
Ex KGB.

Both leaders are psychopaths/sociopaths. on their own level.

I trust Israel's gov about as far as I can throw them. I wouldn't be surprised if they launched a strike, and I wouldn't be surprised if they launched something that didn't strike just to try to provoke a reaction.

Launch something off target, Syria sees it and launches an attack, Israel uses the retaliation as justification to raise hell.

I mean seriously now, what friggin bonehead would order two ballistic rockets launched in the Med at a time like this with all those opposing forces there- KNOWING they'd be picked up on radar? If they were headed eastward towards the Syrian coast, it was either US or Israeli forces no doubt.

Yup. Boneheads.

FFS.

The Israeli's have said its not one of theirs and that they did not detect any launch

There is a thread on the F-22 but so far nothing had been confirmed about a F-22 shoot down (where is zap when you need him eh?)

Two ballistic "objects" that Russia said were launched toward the eastern coast of the Mediterranean on Tuesday fell into the sea, state-run Russian news agency RIA cited a source in Damascus as saying. Earlier, the state-run news agency RIA quoted the Defense Ministry as saying that Russian radars detected two ballistic "objects" that were fired towards the eastern Mediterranean from the central part of the sea. The Defense Ministry declined immediate comment to Reuters. A ministry official had earlier criticized the United States for deploying warships in the Mediterranean close to Syria. Shortly after the Russian Embassy in Syria said there were no signs of a missile attack or explosions in Damascus, Itar-Tass news agency said. Israel also said on Tuesday it was unaware of any ballistic missile launch being conducted in the eastern Mediterranean. "We are not aware, at this time, of such an event having occurred," a military spokeswoman in Jerusalem said after a Russian news agency reported the launch of two ballistic "objects" from the central part of the sea eastward.

Emerging Stocks Erase Gains After Missile Report; Lira Tumbles


Emerging Stocks Erase Gains After Missile Report; Lira Tumbles By Maria Levitov - Sep 3, 2013 2:43 AM PT Facebook Share Tweet LinkedIn Google +1 0 Comments Print QUEUE Q Emerging-market stocks erased gains with India and Turkey leading losses after RIA Novosti reported the detection of a missile launch in the Mediterranean. Turkey’s lira tumbled and the shekel weakened. Akbank TAS, the Turkish lender part-owned by Citigroup Inc., fell 2 percent, as Turkey’s Borsa Istanbul National 100 Index slid 1.2 percent. India’s S&P BSE Sensex index dropped 4 percent. Russia’s Micex Index added 0.3 percent as crude price rose 0.5 percent. The Shanghai Composite Index rose 1.2 after Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said he’s confident the country will meet this year’s economic goals.




The MSCI Emerging Markets Index fell 0.1 percent to 937.31 as of 10:40 a.m. in London, its first loss in four days. Russia’s missile tracking system detected the launch of two ballistic rockets in the central Mediterranean, heading toward targets in eastern Mediterranean, Russia’s state-run RIA Novosti reported, citing Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. “The missile spooked the market,” Michael Ganske, head of emerging markets at Rogge Global Partners Plc in London, said by e-mail. “It’s a good indication of what we have to expect in the coming month: a very nervous market.”

Well.. there you go. See where those gains are made and buy in because you just got a taste of what will happen when the actual war starts. Whoever gained on news of these missile launches.. they are going to make crazy gains when the actual war kicks off.

Who ever is responsible for the launch, they're obviously adding fuel to a flame that's already growing increasingly larger by the day.

Possibly war drills, but no one's going to own up to it at this point in time.
