Folks are keeping in mind that, as another post said, tensions are extremely high and everyone is wired tight as a drum right now? False radar returns and tracks have nearly started wars for a lot less than this was, and turned out being a lot more than this has been.

Sounds to me like some Russians chased a gremlin which vanished on them. Anything more? Proof is what I need to believe something existed at all. If they/it went down in the water, the Russians should know precisely where, as we would and they have subs in the Med right now, just like we do. If anything ever existed, it'll be found quickly enough, I'd think.

I'm betting nothing is found as nothing more than raw nerves existed. Nothing else makes sense in an 'all or nothing' thing like this.

If true, that's extremely irresponsible and provocative given the situation in the region.

Weather recon? That's a bit of a stretch isn't it?
I mean, they have weather radar and realtime satellite data up the wazoo, but need to launch rockets to collect weather data? Sounds like the feeblest excuse ever to me!


More like, let's make a launch and abort, see if anyone notices.

So Russia's Radar works better than Americas or America did detect and kept quiet?

Edit : Wait, the other thread said = Israel says carried out joint missile test with U.S. in the Mediterranean

Waiting for the world's orchestra to complete their symphony of sorrow for these events in planning are the precursor to a timeline aligned with pending cosmic passages signaled to the world leaderships. Take Heed of Warning for the time of rumour is almost done.

Count your Blessings brothers and sisters and seek them further.

The BBC is reporting that these were ARROW anti-ballistic missiles, a highly-advanced Israeli system designed in co-operation with the US, to destroy ballistic missiles fired at Israel above the stratosphere to prevent the debris raining down as it did with the SCUD/Patriot intercepts in the first Gulf War. What's weird is that they're also reporting they were aimed at an 'anchored' target out at sea, which seems a strange thing to do with such an advanced missile that doesn't seem intended for surface-to-surface attacks, although it would explain why radar detected it as a ballistic missile. Anyone got any ideas?

US said they are not theirs, UK said it is aware of them, France said it is unaware of them. Only Russia reports them on the radar. Perhaps the missiles are Russian, and that is a part of the drill of missile forces ongoing in Russia (land based).

If so, this is the most powerful message yet delivered by Russia in the Syrian crisis.

Or, does Israel try to break up the status quo proclaiming itself as a superpower in the midst of Mediterranean and in the midst of crisis? Frankly I don't believe it.

Israel said it carried out a test of a missile, used as a target in a US funded anti-missile system, in the Mediterranean on Tuesday.

The Israeli Defence Ministry said the test was conducted at 9:15 a.m. (0615 GMT), about the same time that Russia's state-run RIA news agency reported that Russian radar had detected the launch of two ballistic "objects" in the Mediterranean.

Early Reuters tweeted that the test involved the "anchor" anti-missile system.

Russia said "ballistic missiles" on early warning radar. I.e. those that can hit Russia.

Now Israel says something else. Well, seems we have another power not recognized as ballistic yet. I hate to say it but they pour oil on the fire with that test.

Boom. I called it off the bat.

Can you give the source. I had a feeling it was Israel. They would be the ones to do something stupid and risky like this. They also wouldnt care if it was a successful provocation it would only get us in the war faster and they'd be fine with that.

Because they were all posted within 2 minutes of each other.

Everyone was probably typing out the same information at the same time.

I see nothing in this thread prior to my post about the specific type of missile, or the anchored target. I wasn't merely repeating the fact that it was an Israeli test as if that was news to everyone else, I was asking if anyone knew more as to why an advanced ANTI-BALLISTIC missile would be fired in surface-to-surface configuration so as to hit an anchored target, in a way that it showed up as ballistic, and not guided, on radar.
