    Russia’s Air Defenses In Syria Have Some Big Problems
    In late September 2017, satellite photographs indicated that Russia had deployed a second Russian SA-21 surface-to-air missile system in Syria.

    Purportedly, the system in question is deployed high in the mountains near Masyaf, fewer than 40 kilometers southeast of Lattakia, and right next to a battery of Bastion-P systems equipped with Oniks cruise missiles.

    For many of foreign observers, this is an indication of the Russians bolstering their presence in Syria, perhaps even directly threatening operations of U.S. and allied aircraft against Islamic State extremists.

    Actually, a closer look at the satellite photographs in question – to say nothing of the history of Russian SAM deployments in Syria since 2015 – reveals multiple shortcomings of the equipment in question, and mistakes by the Russians in the course of their military intervention in the country.

    Did Putin give you that information? Radar works great when looking down or to the side. But if you have a hilly area, it can't see the low spots. A F-15E could easily take advantage of that and just popup when it fires and then dropping back into the recesses. And so can the Buff, B-1. Anything with TFR.

    I stopped reading when the article said the Phrump missiles were not detected. In the real world they were not only detected but also addressed and most of them failed to reach their target.

    You claim to be Turkey. More like Moscow. Most of the 59 hit the target area prompting the Syrians to relocate what was left to other bases. Of course your Putin information will not allow that fact to be public. You won't sell all your toys. What's the matter, Facebook won't let you post anymore? You should be back to fake posting on politic. You may be out of practice come next year, Comrade.

    It´s you who is falling for propaganda.

    Trump-Regime´s attack on Syrian airbase was a failure

    Comrade, you are quoting a Russian Government Owned Cite. Just like you pinko commies. Putin controls that site and it will always go for the party line. And, right now, Putin IS the party. He will attempt to discredit the US in any way he can. The only one he gets to discredit here is you.

    Nobody can discredit the country more than an old fuck that won the elections with the tunes of peace and then shells a sovereign country threatened by terrorist armies. You think for the reputation of the USA it matters if those terror missiles failed or not? It matters not. What matters is the order and its compliant execution, applauded by "patriots". What is left to discredit for Russian trolls?

    Also, what site do you mean, there are several and why shouldn´t Russia have a voice? What about the US media by the way? Let Trump tell us what it is:

    What's your point here? I think Trump is a disaster. He made campaign promises that he is keeping whether they are good or bad. He is not what he claimed. But as a US Citizen, I have the right to say that. You, as a Russian, don't have the luxury of bad mouthing Putin without disappearing from the face of the earth. Trump is just temporary and will pass and be replaced. Meanwhile, Putin will remain in power as long as Putin wishes which can only end in his death. While our system isn't perfect, it's better than yours, Comrade.

    Trump is a disaster for you because he is republican. He´s a disaster for me because he continues Obama´s policies plus he loves war. I am not a Russian but a German. Russians have freedom by the way and no western President is as respected in his own country as Putin. What you say about Russia only shows the disinformation that is being spread in your country.
    As a German I tell you we have good relations with Russia. Even though our own leaders in Europe harm their own countries to fulfill US sanctions orders they know they depend on Russian natural recourses. Russia is a good trade partner and if that anti-Russian warmongering in your country would stop, you could realize that Russia is a peaceful country that only wishes to be part of the western world already for centuries.
