Confidential NATO Report Praises Russia’s Superiority in Syria

Russia has done the most with the least, and even worse, done it for a defensive purpose - against Western aggression

NATO has to admit the obvious

[ Editor’s Note: The source mention for this NATO report in the German online magazine Focus, but where I could find nothing there, as it might be buried by now. Click your translate button if it comes up in German.

But we have had several admissions to this effect, coming around the time when Washington and Moscow were quietly hammering out their deal on taking ultimate control over the Syrian ceasefire. The goal was to squeeze the deal wreckers out of the blackmail position they were trying to impose with their demand for preconditions.

Too much had been invested by the major powers to have it just fizzle out. Breedlove lead with the first NATO acknowledgment of not only Russia’s success in Syria due to its weapons, but also the combined operations integration.

A red line seems to still exist in giving either Iran or Hezbollah credit for fighting the Western-coalition terrorists, as that would put US claims of Hezbollah being a terrorist org and Iran being a terror sponsor in a questionable light. Both claims were hoaxes.

The credibility on the Iran hoax will be a long lasting black mark, just like that of the Syrian and Ukrainian wars. The New Cold war with Russia and China seems to be the next focus. What would Western foreign policy be without a manufactured boogeyman threat? Jim W. Dean ]

Regardless of all the western rhetoric voiced publicly on the “inaccuracy” of the Russian air strikes in Syria, a confidential NATO analytical report on the issue has admitted Russia’s superiority over the Alliance’s forces and has praised Moscow for the “accuracy and efficiency” of its air strikes.

The Russian Air Force has been repeatedly denounced for “killing civilians” in Syria, recounts the German magazine Focus Online. Ironically however, NATO praises Russia for the “accuracy and efficiency” in the country, the outlet adds, citing a confidential report written by the Alliance, which Focus Online has apparently got hold of.

The estimates in the report also suggest that the efficiency of the Russian air troops is by far greater than that of NATO’s forces. The analysis also points to the high level of professionalism of the Russian military, adding that the impact of the air strikes performed by Russian pilots is a lot higher than that of the Alliance.

The paper notes that the number of Russian combat aircraft deployed on the ground is “clearly inferior in number” to the jets deployed by NATO, however the higher frequency of the Russian air raids made them more effective.

The secret document apparently states that 40 Russian combat aircraft stationed at the Russian base in Latakia perform up to 75 sorties daily, each time delivering “accurate and efficient” air strikes, while NATO forces, which have 180 combat jets are able to hit only 20 targets per day.

The paper also says that Russia is using more advanced combat aircraft in Syria. For example, the SU-35 fighter, which according to the estimates of western experts, is far superior to its western analogues.

In addition, Moscow also uses data provided by Syrian aerial intelligence, plus Russian Special Forces regularly provide information of the strategically important objects on the ground to the Russian Air Forces.

  1. I get the feeling the Russians are just so much smarter than the avg Bear, or more likely just have a better education system. There Army is not really a ‘Poverty draft, the West’s generally is just that.

    But is all this Praise from f you will, down to the fact they would get their butts kicked due to the outstanding S300-500 series and whatever the name is of this Electronics c ‘Jamming’ system which essentially makes Ships sitting ducks(no pun on needed) and grounds r spec time air forces ?

    • Praise from NATO*

      Damn this new tablet is terrible for typo’s and jumping the gun predictive text style.

  2. Is Russia’a military more advanced and efficient, or has the U.S. military been degraded and gutted by a so called “Commander in Chief” whose actions border on treason? How much more evidence must Congress or the JCOS accumulate before they impeach or arrest Obama? Why are they all sitting on their hands waiting for………what? The little bastard is a clear and present danger to the safety and security of America. Why wait for the election, why not get rid of Obama now? And, since he and Valerie Jarrett are joined at the hip, get rid of her too. In the meantime, I guess Russia will have to do the job that NATO was supposed to do. I look forward to seeing an all-out attack on Turkey, unless Erdogan is dealt with from within. And ISIS? Kill ’em all. Feed their bodies to the hogs.

  3. The contrast in numbers and so-called Allied inefficiency as against Russian superiority falls two short of 22 which is the base for utter incompetence considering the 180 fighter aircraft at McCain’s disposal. It begs relief in humor from an earlier theater of action.

    “There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one’s safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn’t, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn’t have to; but if he didn’t want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.

    “That’s some catch, that Catch-22,” he observed.

    “It’s the best there is,” Doc Daneeka agreed.”

    ― Joseph Heller, Catch-22
