Western Aggression brings Russian Fleet back to the Mediterranean


Will the Russian Fleet with it’s S-400 missile defences and the ground based S-300s going into Syria block Israeli pre-emptive attacks, or act as a trip wire for them?

Dear Readers, Since this ran and became the top story on Press TV for a week and a half there has been a complete media blackout on any updates on the Russian ships beginning what was called their permanent return. Normally there would have been aerial shots of them from planes or helicopters and many stories about their armaments and combat abilities, especially for engaging the Israeli Navy, Air Force and missile commands.


Russian Med Fleet Returns – an Unintended Consequence

There was a lot of distraction in the news last week, particularly the flank attack moves on Obama that obscured a huge development in the Mid East… the first return of the Russian Pacific Navy for Mediterranean deployment since 1992.

The first big part of the news is the active word ‘permanent.’ Corporate media decided to ignore the strategic shift consequences of that, and the West may be looking back soon at the wisdom their aggressive regime change military moves, despite the extensive use of proxies.

The recent Israeli attacks on Syria, particularly the use of a nuclear bunker buster gave the Russians a gift from heaven, opening the door to make a defensive deployment to protect their longtime ally in Syria.

The Russians are back in the Med to stay, and this might be a good lesson to the folly of the Western slow motion aggression policy in the region, which has put a match to the whole place. Russian Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov has announced that a permanent staff was being set up, and the present force might eventually include their nuclear submarines. In speaking to RIA:

“Overall, already from this year, we plan to have five or six warships and support vessels [in the Mediterranean Sea], which will be replaced on a rotating basis from each of the fleets – the Black Sea, Baltic, Northern and, in some cases, even the Pacific Fleet. Depending on the scope of assignments and their complexity, the number of warships in the task force may be increased.”

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu let the cat out of the bag when he stated that a permanent naval task force was needed to defend Russian interests in the region. The world has watched for two years now how coolly Russia has dealt with the continuing escalations in the fighting there, supported by a growing number of outside states who have effectively declared war on Syria thinking that such was a no-risk deal.

Here is what corporate media has not been telling you all. The preemptive strike doctrine of the Israelis and Neocons is going to be challenged. Netanyahu can talk all he wants to about red lines which will trigger a preemptive ‘defensive’ strike, but yours truly has written in these columns that eventually the intended targets would adopt that policy themselves. They have actually been given permission to by the dummies who invented it.

US Navy sources can sneer at the ‘old’ Russian ships all they want to, but there is nothing old about what they will be carrying, a game changer… their state-of-the-art missiles which they made a top priority in their defense policy as the new missiles are revolutionizing the next generation of warfare.

They will sweep the skies of Israeli planes and the seas of ships. Air forces are working now to deploy robotic war plane drones that are basically missiles themselves by matching their speeds and aerodynamics.

Part of the corporate media hoax has been the fraudulent story of the S-300s being ‘introduced’ to the region as being destabilizing. Anyone wanting to check a copy of Jane’s in 1996 will find them already in Syria.

Maybe some definition game has been going on that if they were under Russian physical control, as American munitions are in many foreign bases, they are not officially Syrian. But I would ask the lazy media what they thought brought down the Turkish F-16 provocations, a waste of those unfortunate pilots in peace time.

Yes folks, the S-300’s have been there all this time, and not fired at Israel yet. But that is all going to change. Israel’s days of roaming freely over Lebanon airspace and their ability to launch air flight munitions without entering Syrian territory may be over, or it will be when the Russians decide to.

Their fleet, even its older ships will be carrying their state-of-the-art weapons like the S-400’s where a pilot only has two or three seconds to live once the ‘beep beep’ that they are locked onto at tremendous speeds. The Russian ships on patrol will be able to shoot any attacking Israeli planes down, including those returning to base post attack. They can even be shot down while taking off.

Russia’s Iskander – game changer for Israel

Any retaliatory strike by Israel would trigger a full response by the Russians that could include their bases and command structure.

Their updated Iskander missiles are stated to have speeds in the Mach 6 to 7 range but our sources say over Mach 8. To evade anti-missile fire they can pull 30+ g turns and make a 90-degree dive onto a target while doing so.

The Israeli bullies have never had to stand up to a modern military but they may get the chance. They won’t like it.

The beauty in all of this is the scenario described above could all be done in a purely defensive mode while resisting an Israeli attack.

After one incident alone the Russians might tell the Israelis that any Israeli warplane leaving Israeli air space would be considered an attack and both the plane and the base it flew from subject to attack.

Oh… I forgot to mention above that the targeting can be done either by satellite or programmed into the missiles so jamming would not be effective. This is not the Gaza Strip mortar shells on a back yard rocket tube, which Israel claims to be such a mortal threat where they have repeatedly launched civilian punishment retaliations as ‘deterrents.’

The dummy Israelis did not realize that they were giving moral permission for the same thing to be done to them someday.

Veterans Today has reported that the US Army Corps of Engineers has been spending huge amounts of money building the Israelis nuclear strike proof command centers.

Iskander – Dual launch system

More American taxpayer money was wasted to protect Israel, which has a huge weapons-of-mass-destruction inventory threatening everyone else.

Under the Bush/NeoCon preemptive strike policy the Russians could have taken these out of ‘potential’ threats, and similarly the Patriot missile batteries.

As for accuracy, the Iskanders can take the Patriot missile batteries out the first day. And the Russians could surrender to the international court the next day on the grounds that their response was totally legal under international law.

And if that did not suffice, their second defense would be the Bush doctrine of preemptive strike for defensive purposes… not to eliminate a future threat, but one that had already signaled its hostile intent.

If any of you are thinking I am hyping this scenario, I held up publishing this until I got confirmation from the Israelis. The headline of the Israel Hayom for May 19th was:

“Expect Israeli strikes on Russian arms shipments to Syria-Hezbollah… US officials tell the Wall Street Journal another round of Israeli air strikes could target a new Russian transfer of Yakhont advanced anti-ship missiles in the near future.”

Israelis have a very aggressive air force

This was nothing more than laying the ground work for the IDF to continue aggressive strikes in support of the Syrian rebels. Note the automatic linking of Syria and Hezbollah like they share arms depots or the Russians let them give their arms away to others.

Do the Israelis have US permission? Well, kind of. Obama said Israel has the right to defend itself, so that means others have the right, also. But the game is a bit different when someone is in the Med who has full retaliatory ability including nuclear weapons.

Bibi playing tough

Oh, I forgot to mention something about the nuclear bunker buster that the Israelis used in Damascus. The Russians of course have them also, to use on their newer missiles to keep their weight down for higher speed or longer range, and to make sure one missile does the job.

Despite Bibi’s claiming that Israel is ready for all eventualities, it is ready for none of this. And if the Russians responded to an Israeli attack, believe me the US would not intercede.

The US would be in enough trouble for having put the region in such danger by arming Israel to the teeth to a level its own population could never have afforded, nor would they if they could have.

When Israel suffers a substantial retaliatory strike after an aggressive attack on their part, I can promise you the average Israeli is going to have an instant different opinion of the bully buzz they have grown used to when attacking weak or defenseless opponents.

In the long run more than a few international civilian and military Intel entities have long suspected that this is what eventually would have to happen to remove Israel as a threat to everybody. They would attack the wrong people at the wrong time.

Nobody in the American military is going to willingly die for bully Israel other than maybe the Christian Zios in the Air Force. But that said, the world would be a safer place with them gone anyway.

    We invest a lot of time on security issues and unfortunately also a lot of money, but Prime Minister Netanyahu has support from the Israeli people and that’s what counts. We need to do what is good for Israel and not try to satisfy anybody else, including people in Washington or in Europe.”

  2. The catch is that there are different versions of these for a layered defense. The really long range ones are for taking out AWACS and approaching ICBM’s. You really need the whole array to have a solid defense.

    What I think the Israelis are sweating is the combination of the sea and land based coverage where the most advanced would be on the ships, and if Israel launched an attack on the air defenses of Syria, the Russian would launch a full attack on the air basis to eliminate Israel’s airforce.

    I don’t think the US would attack the Russian ships for responding to an Israeli attack, as they have a long record now of not being aggressive. All the West would have is lying to their respective publics who are a lot more savvy than ten years ago…and I don’t think people would by a trumped up Russian Bear threat. They have overused the phony threats.

  3. Excellent article that ties the Syrian conflict down to the actual realities. As the IZCS is in its death cycle it is like a cornered rabid dog. But all the threats and snarling will apparently not cower the big Russian Bear who has some very big fangs. Please keep em coming like this Jim. Cannot get this depth anywhere else but VT.

  4. The guy behind her looks 13 years of age. Are the Russians taking a leaf out of Nelson’s recruitment programmes i.e. pressed.

  5. What a gimmick !

    Israelis have already been told that is why they are already blurting out that their country would be a virtual no-fly zone and they are just getting used to the idea.

    Imagine this but without laughing please,

    Ultra-Orthodox have already been inducted into the army, so their upcoming mission is in Syria to go set an example for what they always preach in the safety of protected pulpits.

    The body-part eaters have already been shepherded there all in one place with no clear idea of what they are supposed to do and in their crazed frenzy attack each other while waiting for further orders.

    All it takes is for the Zio Baptduhs led by McAniac to join in in the fray before they realize it was a trap, a carefully crafted exquisite and subtle ploy for them to annihilate each other and leave this world a better place for the children !

    I think I will drink to that !

    • “Ultra-Orthodox have already been inducted into the army, so their upcoming mission is in Syria to go set an example for what they always preach in the safety of protected pulpits.”

      They have not. There is a four year delay for this kicking in, something they do to take heat off the current administration a bit, and pass it on to someone else…a universal pass the buck thing.

      That said the Orthodox are virtually parasites in the country and generally hated by all. They refuse to work or pay taxes. They are supremacists among supremacists. In one town a while back the ‘other’ people wanted to seceed from the Orthodox part of town. The Orthos screamed that this was nor fair as who would do all the work and pay for it? I am not joking. This really happened. The interior minister, Orthodox, blocked the secular Jews from seceeding.

  6. Maybe Russia could send a nuke to wipe out Obama, McCain, and all the Zionists and dual-citizen Israeli’s who are leading this country for Israel? They are probably meeting right now or as soon as McCain get’s back from being the snake he plays so well. What a piece of %#*#^%!

  7. Israeli general is threatening to blow up Russian ships. They say they will also have to take another look at the UAV deal that had been proposed to Russia and Russia says they will not need their assistance anyway as big breaks will be coming with UAV.

    • I shall second this motion: GO HEAD PUNK, MAKE EVERYBODY’S DAY!!!!!
      Someone must muzzle this mad dog or, preferably, put it to sleep

  8. I am truly elated by this new information, that someone has finally stood up to the whining Zionist bullies. Its incredible that they have been allowed to do what they have wanted to, to so many innocent people. It seems like the United States of America has been taken over by Israel and now it is called the United States Of Israel with its capital in Tel Aviv. US credibility has grown so low that it can’t be seen anymore, how unfortunate. Life here can be very pleasant but the psychopaths have dominated the scene far too long and now a true force that will strike at the serpent when it wants to BULLY. I have prayed for this for such a long time and to finally see true action at work against this terrible axis of evil is wonderful. I truly pity those poor (or should I say bought) souls in Washington, but again you must be an Israeli citizen to have any authority there. This reminds me of the same situation under Communism or as the Talmud says Judaism.

  9. Nice picture of Bibi.
    Put next to that that great picture of McCain.
    Two peas in a pod. Two warmongers, who put the world in great danger.
    Is in this case Putin the level headed one?

    • Yes, indeed, Putin is the level-headed one! As to Bibi’s and McCain’s photos, they should come with a warning saying: ” CAUTION: staring at these photos may cause rectal spasms and irresistible urge to vomit”

  10. off topic but did u guys look at the press tv article on FBI used photoshop in boston bombing?


    It looks like a jpeg artifact or something but its hard accessing the page so …

    You guys had good software to analyse photos.did you verify them?

    • We don’t put a lot of time into stuff that we know people who are going to make a bunch of money are going to do anyway. The kid as top attornies and they and their investigators will turn all of this stuff inside out. We will wait to hear from them after they have put a gazillion hours of work into it.

      In the meantime we will try to run VT with a small volunteer staff. The Syria situation is the big focus now. Someone wants a big war over there, and guess who they are planning to have pay for it???? You only need one guess.

    • It does seem interesting that those photos were the only ones with the comment photoshopped (that was an anomaly which may have indicated guilt according to VT) but maybe it was because they really were photoshopped! Hopefully there is a fair trail and whether they were chechens involved in mafia or total patsies gets revealed.

      Goodluck with your work on Syria.

    • They should have taken a Photoshop professionel.


  11. Offtopic (sorry about that) but the following question causes also sypmtoms of weakness in the knees, hot flashes, increased heart rate and blood pressure to me:

    What happened with the political prisoners (are there numbers?) after the collapse of the Soviet Union?

  12. That is their new non stealth psychological warfare disorientation weapon…sypmtoms of weakness in the knees, hot flashes, increased heart rate and blood pressure…a truly evil thing to have pointed at you.

    • Mr. Dean,
      I thought this was a great article hands down.

      As I read it was like watching Independence Day as the President was rallying the Air-Force for a new July 4th. I could only hope that Russia’s Putin was a subscriber to Veterans Today also. 🙂

      We American’s know how far our Government has crossed the line when we American’s are supporting the Russian’s. I have thought of how Putin always tries to promote a political means while the US and Israel demand more War and more Death’s!

      I too ofter wish Putin was the President of America as it is clear you don’t have to be a Citizen to be one. So like our dual citizen’s who “ruin” Washington, Putin could be “Our” dual citizen. Those who are awake know that what the Press calls a civil war has been anything but that as all of Obama’s Raider’s (Al Qaeda) are not Syrian’s at all but hired THUG’S.

      In closing, about 7 months ago I watched Obama’s Al Qaeda/Rebel’s say, “No matter who we kill it will all be blamed on the Bashar Al Assad regime by the Media.” The Shadow Government of America controlled by AIRPAC is headed the WRONG direction and yet I find myself rooting for its quick destruction as with the failed state of Israel too.

      Thank You!

  13. Israel is nothing but a bully, and they won’t have a chance against Russia. I just hope Russia can put an end to this poisonous country once and for all. The world might see some peace.
