They have GPS / differential GPS guidance down to a couple of meters resolution I am sure: they usually hit (and true in this case) in darkness against places that have a wartime blackout in force, don't they? What optical camera works in that?

Yes, they may have an optical camera for stunts like going down city streets etc. But you certainly cannot depend on that because of the above.

Besides, do u think a smokescreen would have saved Baghdad in 1991? That part of the article is pure Berkeley-Stanford, as is (probably) any account of what went on in the Situation Room. And, by extension, the juxtaposition of the ISIS netas' jirga who just happened to be sitting on tops of barrels of chlorine, so that 92 civilians died around them. All too convenient.

And.. note that they omitted the fact that the "retaliatory raid" did hit this one building where the SAA had been developing counter-ATGM measures, that are what won 70% of the ground war.

Yes I am aware of the GPS thing if they use GPS guidance then nothing can stop it short of some distortion in GPS.

I was mearly pointing to the fact the DSCM mechanism relies on optical guidance and Tomahawk have a high failure rate even during GW , Even during Syrian Air field attack only 23 out of 59 Tomahawk missiles could reach but this can be debatable depending on who you ask

US, EU Will Try to Get Away With Bombing Syria Over False Evidence - Russian MoD

https://sputniknews.com/world/201902151 ... al-attack/
"Over the past few years, the Russian Defence Ministry has repeatedly stressed that sooner or later, the truth about these fabrications of Western countries would make its way to the light. And many current high-level policymakers in the United States and Europe, who then called for the 'protection of peaceful Syrians from the regime's terrible chemical attacks' and authorised missile and air strikes on Syria, will try to 'forget' this issue to avoid moral, political and criminal responsibility", Konashenkov said in a statement.

Speaking about the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), he said that granting a mandate to attribute responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria to the OPCW allows western states to attack any country undesirable for them on the basis of fabricated evidence.

"This particularly concerns the vote, pushed through in June 2018 by the manipulations of Washington, London and other Western capitals, on granting the so-called attribution, meaning ‘prosecution,' functions to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). Due to this decision, on the basis of deceitful videos of another nursed ‘White Helmets' about chemical attacks threat, western capitals will be able to carry out missile strikes against any state undesirable for them without any authorization by the UN Security Council — meaning, depending on their mood," Konashenkov pointed out.

These Chutiyas Russian beleieve that EU or US will care if the evidence proves that White Helmet staged chemical attack even if now BBC Producer says so.

This is a War either you fight it out or just Chicken out. No one frekin care about any evidence truth or other wise

and likely these White Helmet are part of West/Saudi intel organisation , The fact they only operate at places under terrorist control is good enough evidence

US military accused of stealing 50 tons of gold form Syria

The U.S. Army is transferring tons of gold from Daesh-held areas in Syria to the U.S., multiple reports said.

According to a source who spoke to Kurdish Bas News Agency, the U.S. forces transferred about 50 tons of gold from areas seized from Daesh terrorists in eastern Syria’s Deir el-Zour region and gave a portion of the remaining gold to the PKK’s Syrian offshoot People’s Protection Units (YPG).

The gold was reportedly transported from the U.S. military base in Kobani.

Meanwhile, 40 tons of gold bullions stolen by Daesh terrorists from Iraq’s Mosul province was also taken by the U.S. forces.

resident Donald Trump has overturned decades of US policy by saying it is time to recognise Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, which it captured from Syria in 1967.

In a tweet, Mr Trump declared that the plateau was of "critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and regional stability".

Israel annexed the Golan in 1981 in a move not recognised internationally.

Syria, which has sought to regain the region, has so far made no comments.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu - who has warned about the "military entrenchment" of his country's arch-enemy Iran in Syria and has ordered air strikes in an attempt to thwart it - tweeted his thanks to Mr Trump.

"At a time when Iran seeks to use Syria as a platform to destroy Israel, President Trump boldly recognises Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights," he wrote.

A move capable of ensuring peace for decades to come, the orange one is to be appreciated.

Russian MoD: French, Belgian Intel Officers Plan Chemical ‘Provocation’ in Idlib

https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/2019 ... ovocation/
Belgian and French intelligence officers have arrived in Syria’s Idlib to stage provocations with the use of chemical substances, the head of the Russian Defense Ministry’s Center for Syrian Reconciliation said on Friday.

"To organize provocations, representatives of the French and Belgian secret services arrived in Idlib. Under their supervision, a meeting was held with the field commanders of the terrorist groups of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and Hurras Al-Din, as well as with the representatives of the pseudo-humanitarian organization ‘White helmets’", Maj. Gen. Viktor Kupchishin said at a news briefing.


At the meeting, the attendees discussed organization of staged film shoots, which would falsely depict Russia and Syria using chemical agents against civilians, according to the center.

"For participation in filming of scenes depicting the effects of the use of poisonous substances, payments were set at $100 per person. At the same time, it is possible that organizers used real toxic substances in order to achieve ‘authenticity’ of photo and video materials", Kupchishin underlined, adding that refugees and families held by the terrorist groups could have been forced to take part in the staged shoots.

At the same time, the Belgian special services have been filming the strikes of the Russian Aerospace Forces at the arms depots of terrorists in order to use that footage in accusing Russia of using of chemical weapons, according to the center’s head.

"From 14 March to 27 March 2019, the representatives of the Belgian secret services recorded strikes on video, which the Russian Aerospace Forces targeted at terror groups' arms depots and footholds of drones on the territory of the Idlib de-escalation zone, in order to subsequently present them as an ‘evidence’ of the use of chemical weapons", Kupchishin stressed.
