Last week the Russian Ministry of Defense found data that the USA has been attacking its Syria base with a drone swarm guided offense from a US Navy P-8 Poseidon aircraft over Eastern Mediterranean Sea.
Russia is prepared to shoot down any US plane coordinating UAV attacks on its Hmeimim Air Base near Latakia, Syria, according to Vladimir Shamanov, head of the lower parliamentary house’s defense committee, former Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Airborne Troops.
Flight data showed that the airbase has further come under waves of attacks by small armed drones, which appear to be increasingly sophisticated.
The official also said that the USA had supplied Syrian mercenaries with equipment that allowed them to access radio frequencies operated by Russian aviation.
“Only a technologically advanced country has access to such tools; they can not be made in the Syrian desert,”
Thirteen drones moved according to common combat battle deployment, operated by a single crew. During all this time the American Poseidon-8 electronic radar plane patrolled the Mediterranean Sea area for eight hours.
At the time of the attack it was blamed on radical Islamist’s by the Russian Ministry of Defense. The January 8th attack included 13 drones in total, 10 of which approached the airbase, while 3 attempted an attack on the naval facility in Tartus.
In the recent six weeks to two months, Russian air defense has shot down 50 aerial vehicles near our base in Hmeymim.” As soon as the reports regarding the drone attacks were made in January 2018, the Pentagon rejected any accusations that US forces were involved in them.
It’s just a pity that, should the American control aircraft be shot down, only a bunch of keen young patriots would die with it. The ruthless, cynical schemers behind the “clever plan” – many of them draft-dodgers in their time – will be safely holed up in their nice offices in the USA. (Until the Sarmats arrive, of course).
American and many western military men perhaps die, but when it comes to nations actually defending themselves, like Syria, like Hezbollah, like Iran, Russia, and Venezuela, these nations are actually doing their own country a favor.
US military men ARE just pawns used in foreign policy, I think we can all agree; but they do this willingly. There is a reason some ~22 US service members are committing suicide daily.
