BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition has once again attacked the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the Al-Tanf Border-Crossing in the southeastern countryside of Homs, CNN claimed this afternoon, citing a report from the International Coalition for Inherent Resolve.

The Syrian Arab Army was targeted by the U.S. Coalition after they allegedly ignored the latter’s warnings about advancing towards the Tanf Crossing.

This latest attack by the U.S. Coalition marks the second time this week and the third time in three weeks that the USAF has targeted the Syrian Arab Army and their allies near the Iraqi border-crossing.

    • IMHO, the best way is to use Il-22PP to have a very intense electronic warfare area. It may even be feasible to fry communication systems into Jordan as range is 150km and also all FSA communications.
      Mostly all aircraft may get into troubles : except Rafale on which this is standard, the anti-nuclear protection is always optional and greatly rises the price of assets so pretty few may be EMP-protected (actually, only Egyptian ones have nuke protection removed in order to lower prices. If you consider NATO fleet into the nuke sharing program, and same for Mirage-2000N, you have aircraft that have been customised to be able to do nuke strikes, all systems are in a Faraday cage and communicate only with optic-fibre, etc). Heavy MW can also fuck sat+radio-comunications, GPS etc : Drones may have some problems to operate, guided bombs only relying on INS end with only a 30m accuracy and their systems may also be fried…
      If some F-18 crashes due to EW/EMP, it can be charged on systems having a surge failure…
      It seems to me the way to go : great care may be taken to avoid escalation.
      Actually, considering tooling IS may be interesting too by letting them to take profit of heavy EW to attack FSA.
      Things shall be cooked in a way to avoid escalation.
      Now it’s sure that CENTCOM having US proxies kicked makes them furious but things have to be straightened : their assets SHALL NOT engage SAA and Syria is a sovereign country and this must be clear for them : they’re tolerated but they’re still uninvited guests.
      It’s not a question of looking weak or not, this is not a chicken game.
      Now there might be a nasty trick to do : making Syria a nuclear power! But Russia might get economical sanctions in return… Thus, they may only threaten to do so, and also to give nukes to Iran, Venezuela, Cuba… Seems to me that a threat of large scale nuclear proliferation may make everybody very uncomfortable… The problem is that the more having such assets, the more the risk of escalation is high.

      • Thus Putin can -secretly maybe?- apply the same principle as the NATO sharing : Germany, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey have nukes but don’t have the codes to use ’em.

  1. Its all about the US slowing down the relief of Deir Ezzor by the SAA. Its time for cool heads to prevail until the time is right to oust the US aggressors from Syrian Lands.
