US Long-range artillery deployed to south Syria


Sixpacks of these rockets are delivered to the front lines

[ Editor’s Note:  The US responds to the surprise move by the SAA to create a new border crossing and base north of Al-Tanf which will block the US jihadis from moving north on the Al-Bukamal hard road crossing on the Euphrates River. The Pentagon moved two units of it 300km range rocket artillery into Syria purely as an offensive weapons move.
You can assume that Al-Tanf has an anti-aircraft missile screen over it to protect these guns, and if the Syrians were to bring artillery within range it would be attacked as a threat, a one way street apparently.
This puts Russia on the spot as to how it would respond with its air power if these new US rocket guns were fired on the new Syrian border base, especially with a supply column going through it from Iraq.
We have not heard a word from Baghdad about its feelings on the US control over the Syrian side of the border. Mr. Abadi is effectively saying he is OK with it by not objecting.  A classic chaos theory trigger is developing here where the odds are increasing for an “incident” to happen which will widen the war.

The US – Russian showdown continues

– First published … June 15, 2017  –
The U-S military has stepped up its presence and firepower in the highly strategic deserts of southeastern Syria.  According to U-S-backed militants, American forces have set up a second base around 65 kilometers from AT-TANF in Homs province.

Militants say more U-S troops and weapons are arriving at both bases. Special Forces are also patrolling distances up to 100 kilometers from AT-TANF. Meanwhile, the U-S has moved its long range artillery to the region. A senior U-S intelligence official describes the deployment as a significant boost as the artillery known as HIMARS has a range of 300 kilometers.

Tensions escalated recently near AT-TANF in Syria’s Badia deserts near the Iraqi border. U-S warplanes have twice bombed Syrian troops advancing on terrorists. American forces are deployed in Syria without the consent of the government in Damascus.

    The sentence that came to mind “Mr Livingstone, I presume”, was when I read

    « Syrian and Iraqi Forces Finally Meet at the Border »

    in Fort Russ News – June 18th, 2017.

    Also important news is the downing of a Syrian jet by Coalition near Rakka, as well as the Iranian launch of mid-range missiles onto terrorist positions in Deir Essor.

    So is the Pentagon going to attack Syria even after ISIS is nearly eradicated?

    F’n scumbag terrorist American military. Where do they find all these murderers who are willing to trample international law and human rights to advance the evil agenda of Israel and its donkey, Uncle Sam?

    I hope US forces illegally deployed in Syria are directly targeted as terrorist invaders, because that’s what they are. Let the bombs rain down on them. Many would suggest, “Well, it’s not their fault, they’re just following orders.” [email protected] that. Rules are rules and they either apply to everyone, or they apply to no one. If your orders are illegal and totally unjustifiable, it’s up to the individual to refuse to carry out such orders.

    The Syrian war would have been over a long time ago, if the US was being genuine about their claims of fighting terrorism. Hell, the war might not have even started in the first place. As long as the US gets away with this $h!t, the war will continue and many innocent people will continue to die. Shame on those fools who cling to the falsehood that America is defending freedom. In reality, they are pushing to destroy every last vestige of national sovereignty, wherever it might still exist on the earth.

      If they are successful in their endeavors, they will use the nations they intentionally destroyed as evidence of the failures of national sovereignty and they’ll use that as an excuse to implement a totalitarian one world government, police force and currency, headed by the criminally insane thugs who intentionally caused all these disasters

      If I were Russia and Syria, I would already be discussing what actions to take when the US decides to fire these missiles. Put together a strategic plan to destroy all of these missile launching platforms now, so that when the belligerent US fires these missiles, all of the launchers can be effectively destroyed immediately. I hear Russia is at the top of the high altitude drone manufacturing game. Maybe this will provide a perfect opportunity for Russia to show the world what their high altitude drones are capable of.

      It is easy, Amelius 🙂 – you put the flags of ISIS on the drones (the bigger – the better) and send them to destroy the rockets. When USA starts to mourn – show ’em the flags. False flags. This way for Russia is too primitive – but for the Pentagon’s idiots that will do :)))))
