Russian envoy: US missiles and launch sites will be targeted if fired at Syria

“If there is a strike by the Americans in Syria then … the missiles will be downed and even their launch sites would be targeted,” Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin told Hizballah’s al-Manar TV Wednesday. The ambassador said he was citing a statement by President Vladimir Putin and the Russian chief of staff. DEBKAfile:  Moscow’s choice of the TV station of Iran’s Lebanese proxy as the platform for its harshest and most explicit threat yet against a US military strike attests to the high degree of Russian-Iranian coordination for its response to the projected US-British-French operation in Syria. His reference to “launch sites” means that US aircraft and naval craft are also in Moscow’s sights.

    A correct and very reasonable position for Russia to take and delivered plain and simple for the American public to fully understand and to consider the consequence of the loss of a naval asset in the region. Indeed as the Aircraft carrier USS Harry S Truman makes its way to join the USS Donald Cook and 6500 US service men with some 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles arrive in the area what can you expect.
    Syria, Russia et al all to sit around and wait for US missiles to fly? Think again they have to be targeted and removed from the scene if required until or unless another negotiated option is given. It is a reasonable reply from the Russians. What was it they used to say “Yankee go home” or should that be sink or swim.

      Russia and Iran better not even think of touching any US military assets in the region. And they would be very smart to keep their hands off Israel.

    Putin cannot deliver his promise without risking becoming the next piece of radioactive dust to come down in the late spring rains. One missile touching a US Navy vessel in the Med would cause an immediate red button response that would make the Kremlin glow in the dark for at least a month.

    AND, . . . he knows it. It is for Iran, and the rag headed perverts running that asylum, . . . that he makes such statements. He has only bluff and boisterous rhetoric, . . . to bolster his position. Let’s hope he does not make an attempt to carry out his ill fated threats.

    Read very carefully what Alexander Zasypkin the Russian ambassador to Lebanon said:
    “If there is a strike by the Americans in Syria” and is a repeat of the statement made March 13
    that Russia would respond to any US strike on Syria, “targeting any missiles and launchers involved in such an attack”
    This is a repeat of what he has stated and is specific to American forces in the area.
    “if there is a strike by the Americans, then the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired ”
    He also added that : a clash “should be ruled out and therefore we are ready to hold negotiations”

    It could be a bluff by Putin, but if he is stupid (crazy) enough then he will lose and lose badly. Russia will never win over US might and Putin knows that. However, surprises may happen and the target could be Iran personnel and Hizbollah.

    Hi Sportsfans…Let’s cut out the bravado: Whether or not Russia can be militarily defeated, lots and lots of people are going to die! President Trump, for better or worse, threatened Russia…If the shoe was on the other foot, President Trump would respond to Putin in the same manner. Lets hope this is just sword rattling….I agree, Russia would get it’s ass kicked in a Conventional War, but the question is, would Putin use a Nuclear Option against us…It’s a lose/lose scenario.
    Let’s hope and pray…that’s all we can do.

        WTF?!? Why is Putin an aggressor? Who did he attack? The Russians are in Syria at the request of the legitimate Syrian government. Who allowed the Americans to be in Syria? It is the Russians that turned the tides of war against ISIS and it was/is the Americans (and Saudis and Qatari) who armed the ISIS and gave them Sat and other intelligence info. They failed miserably. Now the Americans are trying to mussel their way back in with the pretext of an obvious false flag attack. Do they really expect us to believe they give a damn about the Syrians?

    Oh dear Americans talking tough again about not touching US military assets.
    Maybe your president should have thought about that himself before Stormy Daniels ROFL

    Your president is a joke and a laughing stock, Your presence is not required in the middle east.
    Israel can do well enough without your presidents insensitivity of the situation.
    China can do well without your presidents provocation in having the US Navy sailing by the Parcel Islands
    Even North Korea may well have met it’s match of a president acting crazy making threats.
    But you make your bed you lay in it, and this American president is spreading himself thin on the ground.
    What with all his threat and bluster he now prepares to meet Ms Daniels (again) this time with her lawyers.
    I think your American president has touched enough assets already.

    Russia using Iranian air bases for multi engine bombers & tankers to coordinate an attack with Iran on Israel. Did Bibi ask Vlad about Iran’s release of Venezuelan equine encephalitis or any other Iranian bioweapon releases? Maybe the Syrian ‘gas attack’ is cover for bio weapons attacks? Maybe, but what do I know?
