‘Extreme Events’ are Happening Now! (2018-2019)
The claim was made Tuesday by the head of the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) Army General Tony Thomas. The “daily” interference in Syria disrupts US military communications and hampers aircraft missions, the general told the US Geospatial Intelligence Foundation’s 2018 GEOINT Symposium.
“Right now in Syria, we’re in the most aggressive EW [electronic warfare] environment on the planet from our adversaries,”Thomas said. “They’re testing us every day, knocking our communications down, disabling our AC-130s, et cetera.”
Some reports suggested that Thomas was referring to the EC-130H Compass Call. The EC-130H is an aircraft specifically designed to counter and wage its own electronic warfare, and if the machines were rendered inoperable by some “adversaries” on their own field, it would have been quite an embarrassing revelation. read more…
Trumps tweet- “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”
The tweet appears to be an unofficial announcement of the “major decisions” which Trump said Washington would soon be making regarding the alleged chemical attack in Syria.
It comes after Russia vowed to shoot down any US missiles aimed at Syria. “If there is an American strike, then we… will shoot down the missiles and target the positions from where they were launched,” Alexander Zasypkin, the Russian envoy to Beirut, said on Wednesday. “In the past few days, we have seen an escalation towards a significant crisis.”
Any US missiles fired at Syria will be shot down, launch sites targeted – Russian envoy to Lebanon
The Russian military reserves the right to shoot down missiles and destroy launch sites in the event of US aggression against Syria, Moscow’s envoy to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin has warned.
Zasypkin stressed that “the Russian forces will confront any US aggression on Syria, by intercepting the missiles and striking their launch pads,” al-Manar TV website reported, citing the envoy.
Speaking to the channel, the ambassador also said that the allegations of a chemical attack were being used to justify “offensive acts” in Syria, while “the US and Western escalation against Syria will lead to a major crisis.”
The statement comes after Washington threatened a “forceful response” against Syria after an alleged chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma on Saturday. The US was quick to pin the blame on the Syrian government, basing its accusations on unverified data and images, including reports from the infamous, rebel-linked White Helmets ‘civil defense’ group. read more..
