The other highpoint of the debate was when Hellary the Shrew advocated a no fly zone over Syria. The first highlight was when Trump told Hellary the Shrew he would appoint a special prosecutor and send her to jail. The Russians have repeatedly said they will regard a no fly zone over Syria as an act of war and respond with their S-300 missile systems among other things.
Here we see an article from Iran’s FARS newservice, which quotes a Saudi Arabian media source, to the effect the USA just sent in two shipments of MANPADS. Manpads are shoulder fired anti-aircraft and helicopter missiles. We have just now given several hundred of them to the “Syrian Moderates.” The Syrian Moderates being the Al Qaida forces, along with the ISIS forces the Turks and the CIA have long supported. I can expect they will be used against both Russian and Syrian jets and helicopters. I can also expect when the first Russian jet gets shot down by Al Qaida fighters using US MANPADS the reaction by Russia will be rapid and immediate.
“At least two cargos of shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles have been sent to the Free Syrian Army (FSA) group, supported by the US, in Northern Syria; the cargos were in fact dispatched by the MOM (the US-funded operations room near the Turkish town of Reyhanli),” Asharq al-Awsat newspaper quoted Charles Lester, a US analyst on Syrian issues, as saying.
Noting that the militants have already been equipped with Grad missiles with a range of 20km to 40km, he said that the new anti-aircraft missiles are aimed at creating a buffer zone in certain regions of Northern Syria.
A terrorist commander had told Reuters late September that foreign states have given Syrian militants surface-to-surface Grad rockets of a type not previously supplied to them.
The Grad rockets with a range of 22 km and 40 km have been supplied in “excellent quantities” and will be used on battlefronts in Aleppo, Hama and the coastal region, Fares al-Bayoush said.
While Grad missiles have previously been supplied to terrorists, Bayoush said it was the first time this particular type had been delivered. Each salvo contains 40 rockets, he said, without giving further details.
