Russia deploys missile cruiser off Syria coast, ordered to destroy any target posing danger

[ Editor’s Note: We had been expecting a “measured response” from the Russians before sundown. The ending military cooperation was a given. Turkey gets one freebie on the plane shoot down today, but one is all.

The missile cruiser will have top of the line S-400s, which will be able to reach into Turkey to shoot down Turkish planes after firing on Russian ones next time, or even threatening them.

Russia will of course track the engagement by satellite and release it by the end of the day, something we have not seen from the Turks.

NATO has lied to us routinely, so they will say whatever they want, as the public cannot reach them with any punishment. We have not seen phone campaigns organized against rogue military policy, as they can be spun so easily in the controlled media as “anti-American”, when they are just the opposite.

Turkey does not want the anti-terrorism campaign to go up to its border, as then it cannot supply its terrorist groups in Syria. But more important, once Syria has control of its side of the border, the dream of Turkey hosting the Saudi-Qatari gas pipeline to the Mediterranean will be dead. Erdogan wants to make sure he is in that game, in case his Russian gas source gets stopped in the future… like for shooting Russian planes down.

For now, the money for the gas sales to Turkey is more important to Russia. As the Chinese pipelines get built and product is being sold and paid for, then losing some Western business would not be a game changer. Erdogan is playing both sides against the middle.

You can imagine what Saudi Arabia and Qatar would offer Turkey to keep the pipeline dream alive. If not, then we could see an Iranian-Iraqi-Syrian pipeline, which will give it a price advantage over tanker shippers from the Gulf. This has always been about money, which no average person would ever see; and it always will be, until we “change things”Jim W. Dean ]

Moscow plans to suspend military cooperation with Ankara after the downing of a Russian bomber by Turkish air forces, Russian General Staff representatives said on Tuesday. Further measures to beef up Russian air base security in Syria will also be taken.

Three steps as announced by top brass:

  1. Each and every strike groups’ operation is to be carried out under the guise of fighter jets
  2. Air defense to be boosted with the deployment of Moskva guided missile cruiser off Latakia coast with an aim to destroy any target that may pose danger
  3. Military contacts with Turkey to be suspended

Sergey Rudskoy, a top official with the Russian General Staff, condemned the attack on the Russian bomber in Syrian airspace by a Turkish fighter jet as “a severe violation of international law”. He stressed that the Su-24 was downed over the Syrian territory. The crash site was four kilometers away from the Turkish border, he said.

Rudskoy said the Russian warplane did not violate Turkish airspace. Additionally, according to the Hmeymim airfield radar, it was the Turkish fighter jet that actually entered Syrian airspace as it attacked the Russian bomber.

The Turkish fighter jet made no attempts to contact Russian pilots before attacking the bomber, Rudskoy added.

We assume the strike was carried out with a close range missile with an infra-red seeker,” Rudskoy said. “The Turkish jet made no attempts to communicate or establish visual contact with our crew that our equipment would have registered. The Su-24 was hit by a missile over Syria’s territory.”

  1. Putin needs to stop thinking that Russia is well Armed than the US / NATO Those malfunction arsenals he deployed in Syria are toys and it’s just a BLUFF !

  2. Paris is very much indeed a Trojan horse, I’ve been shouting my throat soar saying this.

    The creation of Paris as a non-affiliate affiliated NATO member is all part and parcel; veiled in a notion of independence and thus the Anglo-zionists managed to get 3/5 UNSC seats.

    And al-Sisi is a Trojan horse as well, his mothers name is Malika al-Titani; a Nephilim decendant and thus Talmudi by default.

    Egypts history (old and present) of buying Soviet/Russian weapons don’t mean shhht to one with a belief in a higher being, it’s just business, and it could even be the “robe” serving as a Trojan horse; to make Putin believe Egypt is a future partner in case of WWIII.

  3. Jim, how likely do you think it is that Russia might quietly begin to support PKK?

    Or would that be upsetting to the governments of the other 3 nations with large Kurdish populations? I have no realistic idea how reconciled the Iranian Kurds are to their life in the IRI. I know they were desperately unhappy under the Shah. As, for that matter, were the Syrian Kurds under the father of the current President Assad.

    Ugh, Kurdish politics. It makes Lebanon look simple.

  4. Any indications on how MİT is leaning – do they support Erdoğan, or do they have a “Yigal Amir” waiting in the wings if they believe he is putting Turkey in too much danger? Same for the military.

  5. That is a great point.

    The UZn should hold an inquiry in the next few days. They are all for world peace the UN lawyers.

    • Thank’s C.W.

      I forgot to add, This high quality report, Is a virtual trade mark of Veterans Today.

      You guys do great work, And will probably feature in future history books.

  6. The cowardly use of a heat seeker just points to the obviously provocative strike by Turkey.

    Russia’s cool handling of this incident shows that Russia will not be deterred.

    Quite the opposite, there will be Hell to pay for this “stab in the back”.

    Reap what you sowed Turkey, And “just following orders” is not a legitimate defense.

  7. Thank you for keeping on top of this, Mr. Dean. I saw the “press” conference with Hollande and Obama, and neither so much as expressed a modicum of humanity by expressing concern for the Russian airman. In fact, after Putin came out guns blazing (literally) in support of France after the attack in Paris, Hollande could barely acknowledge Russia’s support lest he upset Obama. In fact, Hollande joined the Western chorus by calling for the removal of Assad. In contrast, the King of Jordon openly stated his condolences to President Putin for the incident and the loss of at last one pilot.

    • Jordan has a great fondness for being on the winning side. Up to this point, that has meant kissing Zionist tuchis, but if they think the tide has begun to turn, it would not surprise me if Jordan was the first of the Zionist crypto-allies to jump ship. The Omani are already fairly friendly with Iran. If Jordan pulls the rat-off-a-sinking-ship routine, it could begin a landslide of minor Arab states suddenly changing their tune. Qatar and Bahrain are run by the al-Thani and al-Khalifa, which are (misbegotten) offshoots of the house of Saud, so I suspect they’ll go down with the ship, but the rest have no loyalty, no shame, and no means to defend themselves.

    • Thanks @Zaguero. Unfortunately there’s good intel that US bases on the Jordanian border with Syria are pumping weapons to the terrorists. That being said I’d certainly like to see the Jordanians not kissing Zionist tuchis anymore, for sure. I guess it depends upon what they’re offered in trade.

    • The Jordanian king is a Kabbalist, he shares the same “god” with the NATO/GCC/Commonwealth elites + the elites of most other countries.
