Trump Fail: Russia Shows Tomahawk Missiles Shot Down Over Syria

Last week, Russian media reported that Syrian forces had discovered two missiles which failed to detonate during the Western airstrikes on Syria.

Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff Col. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy announced that Russian specialists were examining rockets of the US-led coalition, including Tomahawk cruise missiles, captured in Syria and handed over to Moscow.

“Two [missiles] including a Tomahawk cruise missile and a high-precision aviation missile were delivered to Moscow… They are now being examined by our experts. The results of this work will be used to improve Russian weapons,” the military official told a briefing, showing the slides, featuring military parts of the rockets.

On April 14, the United States, the United Kingdom, and France fired over 100 missiles at multiple targets in Syria in response to an alleged use of chemical weapons by the government’s forces in the city of Douma.

Washington claimed that the majority of rockets had hit their designated targets, however, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense, 71 out of the 103 missiles had been intercepted by the Syrian air defenses.

  1. Here finally we have proof Trump is in collusion with Russia. He delivered two intact missiles to them. He should be removed from office immediately and the world might become a better place. Except for Israel.

    • Trump is not in collusion with Russia, not one iota, in fact, one of the main reasons for the Trump presidency is to attack Russia and get rid of Putin.

  2. tRump wants his missiles back.
    Sorry, you can’t have them.
    Were all those missile attacks really meant to do any damage at all? Or were they just posturing? Or…were they meant to use them up so the manufacturer can receive orders to make new ones? Mo’ better money.
    tRump is a thug.

    • Well, there are some signs of something, what for sure is not certain. The price of metals at recyclers has gone up. What is really strange is the price of tin. It has always been less than aluminum. 3 weeks ago aluminum was $.40/lb, tin $.39/lb. Aluminum as of yesterday is now $.50/lb and tin is a whopping $1.39/lb. Whether this is a result of the tariffs the twit-in-chief has imposed or a signal of MIL production increase, I don’t know.
