Reports say Russian ships in Syrian waters delivered advanced anti-aircraft missile system and technicians

By End the Lie

The Russian warships that arrived in Syrian territorial waters in recent days were reportedly carrying technical advisors who will assist the Syrian government in setting up an array of the super-advanced S-300 missiles.

This is according to Syrian and Russian sources cited by the London-based Arabic Al Quds-Al Arabi which said that Moscow is seeing a Western attack on Syria as a “red line” which it will not tolerate in any way.

This comes as the United States is moving the USS George H. W. Bush aircraft carrier off the coast of Syria and the Arab League has reportedly drawn up a plan for a no-fly zone over Syria which would utilize American logistical support.

The report said that Russia is maintaining their support for the Assad government in Syria, despite constantly growing Western pressure and amongst the puppet leaders that make up the Arab League.

In addition to the S-300 missiles, the report states that Russia is also installing advanced radar systems in all of the critical Syrian industrial and military installations.

Arutz Sheva reports that the S-300 system is regarded as one of the most powerful anti-aircraft missiles systems available.

They also point out that the radar system is capable of tracking 100 targets simultaneously while engaging up to 12 separate targets.

Deployment of the S-300 takes a mere five minutes and have a long life span with no maintenance required.

The system will provide coverage of areas both north and south of Syria which would be able to detect troop or aircraft movements towards Syrian borders.

The long-rage surface-to-air missiles were developed by Russia in 1960s-1970s in order to protect industrial and military bases from aircraft attacks and cruise missiles.

This S-300 system will reportedly be used to “deflect a possible attack by NATO or the U.S. and EU,” although the possibility of an Arab League-sponsored attack is considerable if recent reports are to be believed.

This system can reportedly target much of Israel and the Turkish Incirlik military base which is utilized by NATO, which would likely be leveraged if a no-fly zone operation was conducted.

The report claims that Russia was planning to sell the S-300 system to Iran but backed down after American and Israeli pressure.

However, the report also claims that Iran paid for the system for Syria and Arutz Sheva alleges, “It is not known if some of the missiles have reached Iran as well,” although that statement should obviously be taken with a large grain of salt.

The stakes have been raised considerably as of late with the U.S. Embassy in Damascus urging all American citizens to “immediately” leave Syria and the Turkish ministry telling Turkish pilgrims to avoid traveling through Syria altogether.

Furthermore, the French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said that “humanitarian corridors or humanitarian zones” could be established in order to protect those supposedly under attack, according to the Financial Times.

Juppe said that the issue would be further discussed by Foreign Ministers of European Union member nations when they meet next month, although it appears that preparations for such an operation are already being made.

Juppe claimed that full scale military intervention was not on the table although his other statements indicate otherwise.

“In response to a demand from the Syrian national council, we will examine, notably with our EU partners, the possibility of launching humanitarian initiatives to alleviate the considerable suffering of the (Syrian) population,” Juppe said.

Of course, as we have seen in Libya, any “humanitarian initiatives” that establish “humanitarian corridors or humanitarian zones” indeed require a full scale military intervention that will undoubtedly leave countless civilians dead.

Even more importantly, any intervention whatsoever will spark the ire of the Russians and Iranians, likely causing a much larger conflict.

One might argue that this has been the plan all along, to first enter Syria under humanitarian pretenses which would, as I have previously covered, cause the Iranians to strike back and thus give justification to the Western nations that have been pushing for an attack on Iran.

If Iran attempts to help Assad defend himself against a foreign invasion, Israel would no longer need the smoking gun justification to launch an all-out assault on Iran and the United States would likely follow.

This is truly a hellish scenario, given that Russia would come to the side of Syria and Iran, likely drawing in China, which has been goaded recently by the United States in the South China Sea dispute.

I truly hope that all of this is a bunch of hype and that nothing will happen, as if this does unfold in the manner in which it is currently, the world will enter a new age of horrific war that will make previous world wars pale in comparison.

    The extremist Russian nuclear threat against the USA isn’t likely to have cropped up without American consent…
    It is nuclear since the rather smallish missile named Iskander cannot penetrate the intended American underground bunkers lest it was armed with nukes itself.

    See our recent post for a detailed analysis of Russian policy vs. US in the middle east :

    @essential intelligence (what an oxymoron coming from an idiot like you)

    Let me guess. Israel can never figure in to it? Take a break from your hasbara and read “The Israel Lobby” you ignorant propagandist. Everything I’ve read on your site is neither essential nor intelligence. You publish pure disinformation.

    Iran has to defend Syria if they get attacked. It will give NATO the excuse to attack Iran next, but it will happen anyway afterwards. Iran would have no allies left in the region and it would only be a matter of time before they are attacked anyway.

    Russia’s military is riddled with weakness. It’s equipment is outdated. It’s technology is decades behind the West. And it’s capacity for battlefield communications and intelligence gathering is terrible. In short, Russia has a mid-to late-20th century military in a 21st century world.

    Yay team eh? Good luck assuming Russia is weak because it doesn’t spend as much on new ships, since it has at least one or two generations better missile technology including the unstoppable ship kiler sunburn and Yakhont missiles. Both IRan and Syria have them and Iran produces its own variants of several of the better Russian missiles including supersonic torpedos and the S-300 now too. Russian missiles can penetrate any defense system and that is not disputed in the real world and nor is the ability of the Sunburn class of missiles to sink any ship, they are designed to sink US carriers, and nobody who matters doubts that they can. Like most of the Russian and Iranian top end stuff it has not been seen in action, which makes the danger worse if as expected it does work as expected. You just are not ready to lose a couple of carriers and the fleets that go with them, you can be as mihty as you like and back it up like a big mouth with lots of movies showing you kings of the universe and winning every war in sight, always the good guy fighting evil. The problem is that on the ground the truth is none of that. You’re seen as a corrupt farce of an industrial military machine on hire to the Banksters and their Rothschildlandia pet which seems in foreign policy to lead the US military industrial nation around by the nose for its ends, but really it is all the ends of the Banksters who own us all at the national level, except those few holdouts that refuse to lie down. Like Libya who fell for lack of friends and Syria now who has some very serious friends with far more life and death pressing reasons to support her than any of those idiot nations starting WWIII have for attacking her. Good luck with what is coming, there are other interpretations of the Bible and scripture and the most obvious to me includes the self evident leading astray by the devil of many who supposedly see themselves as Christian or Muslim but who really serve the Shaitan who resides now at least by proxy in Tel Aviv, London and New York.

    Now a little heads up on a few things which will astonish and cause many of you to go into paroxysms of denial from someone who really does try to end the lies, at least for his own sake.

    I was in Pakistan when they killed the ghost of Bin Laden. He died back in late 2001 and it is well known in many places, especially many Muslim countries where he was generally a well known figure for far more than most of you could imagine. Such as Hospitals and Schools and charities. He was only a figurehead for a fictional group by virtue of his former history fronting for the Mujahideen when he worked for the USA against Russian occupation in Afghanistan. Your occupation of Afghanistan is about the vast mineral wealth, oil and gas pipelines and geostrategic dominance as well as the opium since your CIA does have drug trade as its stock in trade after all.
    The S-300 systems have according to reliable sources; reported more the East than the West but it is out there, already been delivered to Syria and the NATO/ZIONIST thugs know it. It has been used to shoot down two or three Turkish and one Israeli jet which have entered Syrian airspace since 2011. It may be manned by Russian techs still and the final “deliveryZ” will involve handover to the Syrian techs who will of course have had a couple of years training by then to operate it. This would be standard enough procedure actually, but I imagine that it doesn’t come up in the Corpse Media, the movies or propaganda screeds which some may consider informs them. The recent assertions of airstrikes on Damascus are a smokescreen which suits all parties for now. It was shelling by long range howitzers of 105 and 175 mm calibre and a tactical nuclear strike probably fired from an Israeli submarine. The 4 seismic reading alerted Damascus to the deliberate message and the news brought the Russian Bear to his feet and saw the Russian fleet enter the Med again for the first time since 1991 and it is permanent and they have all teeth bared. If you want to see Russian shock and awe, as well as a serious and competnt military do its job, with generally old and outdated weapons if you want, try asking Georgia how it feels. Yes Georgia was small, but fully armed and trained by and even with US and Israeli leadership on the ground (there were a few of them turned up among the dead and it was reported but as usual not in the Western Corpse media), but who else but smaller weaker nations has the USA faced since it joined the fray late in WWII?

    It won’t come down to how much you can dish out in any fight really, but how much you can take and still keep punching. My money is on the Russian Bear rather than the Glass Jaw Rambo and as for scripture, I’ll go with the righteous team and the victims of aggression. The mekk if you will or the defenders also, but it all boils down to the same. Call yourself what you will, but war that will come will end up being a battle between good and evil even if it begins as one between nations and iedologies over resources mainly lets be honest. When the smoke clears whichever side wins (If anybody is left to claim it) will be represented by people who formally called themselves Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, BUddhists and no religion at all. Only then will most of you finally get the message of your religions or beliefs I expect. It was never about any of the other things but always about the dichotomy of good and bad.
