Russia will deploy S-400 defense missile systems to Hmeymim airbase in Syria, Russian Defense Ministry Sergey Shoygu said Thursday.That's it. Nothing else from Sputnik.
WTF were the Turks thinking? Now the Russians are moving to have a completely integrated air defense complex over Syria. They've moved warships and are upping the ante with the S-400.
The interesting thing? If the S-400 is everything the Russians say that it is (and the boys at Air Power Australia are convinced that it is) then they can cover all of Syria, most of Iraq and parts of Turkey.
Robert sent me this vid...
What's the plan? I have no idea. I do know that airstrikes resumed against the Turkmen (the reason why this whole drama started) and I expect even more over the next few days.
You're gonna watch football during Thanksgiving. I'm gonna be watching Syria.
