    Send the weapons to the black folks demonstrating in Amiland. Very Happy

    Remember when there were some violent demonstrations in Syria (paid for by western countries) and how fast Assad was called murderer and dictator? If the same (without outside interference, even if CNN tries to shift the blame there) happens in the exceptional country the police and military can act with deadly force and nobody in the EU asks for human rights and so on.

    With those crop fires in east Syria inevitably a balloon got captured. The companies EU branch is just down the road from me. This is what they do. Clearly someone is having a knees up and the party balloons escape Smile


    Amscan International does not sell directly to the public; we are a designer, manufacturer and wholesale distributor of party products, Anagram balloons, fancy dress costumes and face paint. Amscan and Anagram products can be found in many high-street stores and can also be purchased from online retailers.

    NATO was trying to pull this shit with us back in 99 using phosphorus tiles

    We solved it by plowing lines in the crops every several hundred meters to create "firewalls"

    Syrians should do the same, it's simple and effective

    Honestly they should just pick up the phone, call our guys and ask for tips about all the stuff they have issues with now, we would be happy to chime in

    In my mind its clear why the Turks are making these moves. They have to to protect the families of those who live in this area who are now working for them in Libya. No protection = no go. In their mind their own army will be best positioned to reject any assault by Russians.

    Could the supply of new aircraft mig-29 be a sign that Syrian air force aircraft are at the end of their life (not all) they have su-24m2 for precision attack and can carry more. I wouldn't be surprised Syrian aircraft were fairly old at the start of the conflict and have flown way past their life and flown countless missions for years. Would be great to see their actual numbers left in service. I believe their mig-25 have been retired during the conflict mainly down to cost and better aircraft for ground attack

    High sortie rate on older models would increase wear and tear and would be harder to source spares and parts for.

    Having older single role models means a lot more aircraft are needed just to offer a useful number of platforms to get the needed jobs done.

    A MiG-29 with a modest SMT upgrade could be fitted with a gefest&T upgrade to allow the accurate use of dumb bombs and rockets yet at the same time carry more modern air to air weapons.... replacing older types, yet at the same time improving performance and reducing costs with easier to source parts.

    If Turkey wants to send Terrorists from Syria to Yemen and Libya then that is a good thing... grind them up in other conflicts like grain...

    Looks like they used two... one came in through the windscreen and one from the top to take out the people in the back seats too...

    Considering US history of murdering people I suspect the reason they got killed was because they wouldn't change sides to fight against Assad and then sell out what ever new country state replaces Syria when Assad is dead and syria is in chaos.

    America leaves lots of these dirtbags alive... there is no morality to this... it is just business.

    https://twitter.com/hxhassan/status/1272317597418229762?s=20

    The Hellfire R9X used for this strike is purely Kinetic Energy based AGM having blades to decimate what comes it's way. A very lethal & precise weapon, with little to no collateral damage at the same time. Great for targeting specific individuals in crowded spaces.

    Yep, I know.... that video in the piece you linked to shows an impact through the windscreen targeting the people in the two front seats and a second impact in the top targeting the people in the rear seats.

    I suppose it is an improvement over previous attacks using standard Hellfires that kill everyone in the car and people in cars or on the street nearby, but it is still murder... these weapons are used in countries the US is not at war with and the targets selected are mainly enemies of the US like Russia and China and a multitude of other people who don't accept Americas right to do as it pleases.

    Of course once Russia has a few murderbots in service the Americans will suddenly demand rules and regulations regarding their use but until then they will murder Iranian generals lured with promises of a peace treaty, or just random people in Pakistan and Yemen and throughout Africa...

    There is only no collateral damage if they target the right car or person... Maybe Trump could use a few... on Hilary Clinton and her wife, and Joe Biden perhaps...

    Looks like it could be a standard Hellfire this time.

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – Local reports from Idlib revealed the killing of two senior jihadist leaders from the “Ansar al-Tawhid” organization last night.

    According to the reports, an unknown drone, likely U.S. Coalition, carried out an airstrike in the Al-Sina’a District of Idlib city, after which an explosion was heard that shook the administrative capital.

    Not long after the drone strike, opposition activists took to social media to report the attack on the eastern part of the Idlib city.

    The two remains of the two jihadist commanders were recovered shortly after the attack, with no group or force claiming responsibility for the attack.

    Meanwhile, Sputnik Arabic, citing local sources, confirmed that the two people who were killed as a result of this raid were in a meeting at one of the jihadist compounds belonging to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, on the outskirts of Idlib without knowing additional details about their identity and nationality.

    No further details have been released since the attack.

    Over the last month, at least three mysterious drone strikes have been carried out in the Idlib Governorate; these attacks have specifically targeted members of Ansar Al-Tawhid (formerly Jund Al-Aqsa) and the Hurras Al-Deen group.
