Syraq SITREP 48: Russian MoD Says Syria Shot Down More Than 2/3rds of Anglo-American-French Missiles, Pentagon Insists Not a Single Missile Downed by Damascus Defenders

Syraq SITREP 48: Russian MoD Says Syria Shot Down More Than 2/3rds of Anglo-American-French Missiles, Pentagon Insists Not a Single Missile Downed by Damascus Defenders

Nearly two days have passed, multiple satellite photographs of destroyed buildings have been released to the world since Saturday morning's U.S.-British-French missile strikes in Syria...and the Pentagon has a serious problem. An issue much larger than just 'PR' or the 'Russian disinformation' that Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned about, which is said to have included trolling activity increasing by 2,000% (from what baseline and over which period of time this percentage increase was recorded, the DoD spokesmen and women wouldn't say).

Perhaps in part because the blow was telegraphed last week by President Trump's tweet taunting Russians that the shiny new 'smart missiles' were coming, or due to the limited scope of targeting (just three sites allegedly related to a covert Syrian chemical weapons program), or just plain hubris and smug underestimation of Syria's defenders and their Russian big brothers watching the skies -- the attack was a dud. Such that even those who rushed to praise President Trump for striking Assad the alleged chemical bomber of children were left disappointed, pining for more multi-100 million dollar fireworks to show Vladimir Putin who's the global superpower boss.

While the Russian Analyst does not know if Moscow's tally of 71 out of 103 missiles fired from US-UK-French warships and aircraft intercepted is accurate...we can confidently assess that the U.S. Department of Offense spokesman's claims -- that every missile fired hit its intended target and that there were no launch failures or weapons falling short -- is false. We also know the Pentagon, likely due to the current hysteria over all things Russian in Washington, denied giving Moscow any strike warning on Friday beyond the usual deconfliction channels -- whereas the French immediately contradicted that point. What remains to be seen is how much wreckage from downed Tomahawk and StormShadow (French and British deployed) missiles the Russian generals will present in Damascus as proof their American counterparts are lying.

Russian Electronic Warfare Technology is Reshaping Western Attitudes

Russian Electronic Warfare Technology is Reshaping Western Attitudes

Russian electronic warfare both real and rumored has been a hot topic in the alternative media since a US Navy disputed April 2014 incident allegedly disabled the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea. It has become a burning issue in the alternative and even mainstream military oriented media since a recent collision in the Straits of Malacca involving the USS John S. McCain, one of the Cook's sister Arleigh Burke class AEGIS guided missile destroyers, which happens to be named for the father one of the most outspoken Russophobes on Capitol Hill.

With rumors rife of GPS spoofing experiments off the coast of Crimea, were the Russians or their Chinese allies involved in the McCain collision, or was it simply a case of tired sailors losing alertness in one of the world's busiest shipping lanes? But if the US Navy's cover story were true, how is it then that so many American warships have collided with merchant vessels in recent months? Why are even military pages for both anonymous active duty and veterans asking what the hell is going on with America's Navy?

Bellingcat Produces 'Report' on Russian Artillery/Rocket Strikes on Ukrainian Army in 2014, But Like the MSM Refuses to Investigate Kiev's Thousands of Hidden KIA

Bellingcat Produces 'Report' on Russian Artillery/Rocket Strikes on Ukrainian Army in 2014, But Like the MSM Refuses to Investigate Kiev's Thousands of Hidden KIA

Soviet dictator Josef Stalin allegedly said, "One death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic". Had Stalin lived to see the strange proxy war played out in Ukraine between Washington and Moscow since 2014, he'd probably say an addendum, which is that several Russian servicemen's disavowed combat deaths in the Donbass are big news. Whereas the thousands of 'missing' (actually dead) Ukrainian soldiers and volunteer battalion members are irrelevant to advancing the US/NATO Narrative, and therefore remain (hidden) statistics...which the media outlets promoting Bellingcat's latest 'report' on Russian rocket and artillery fire at Ukrainian Army units back in 2014 have refused to properly investigate. But as we enter 2017, the great Ukrainian combat deaths cover up is about to catch up with the mainstream media and the U.S.-propped up regime in Kiev, because the incoming Trump Administration may not be inclined to do the likes of Sens. McCain and Graham the favor of sustaining the cover up inherited from the Obama Administration...
