Video footage emerged of the Syrian Army capturing loads of US-manufactured weapons including strategic TOW-launchers and missiles. All those weapons were abandoned by the rebel forces fleeing desperately before being surrounded in the Bani Zaid district of Aleppo city.

Do you have an idea on how many countries could supply all this stuff to you? TOW has been sold to around 45/50 countries since 1970 and is still used by mny choppers too. There are probably several millions in the nature. Saudis bought 14,000 of ’em in 2014. If you see a Milan in FSA hands, it has most likely been sized from SAA, YPG or Peshmergas… About 30/35 countries bought 350,000 of them from France or Germany, 50,000 were to UK which retired ’em a few years ago. Now you see even Angolan UNITA with Milans, nobody knows… Read more »

The must now be used against the rebel-terrorists. And in that way the weapons will be “redeemed” from the evil intentions, with which they were sent to Syria, to heroic use by destroying the evil minions.

It’s clear that they are likely to find a way back to their previous owners and not the way they expected.

This is great news! The SAA will now be able to identify the exact information that they need to know in order to develop an effective counter measure.

With TOW or Milan, except the smokescreen or having active systems to shoot them in flight like recent russian or israeli systems, well, T-90… Serious ERA bricks or having a grille to make it blow before hitting the hull of your vehicle… These things are wire guided, you can’t jam them seekers, this is not ‘fire and forget’ stuff…

At the 2:25 mark the boxes also are clearly marked From USA for mutual defense. If the boxes where really from Russia to Syria why would the writing be in English and not all Cyrillic? There is one marked in Cyrillic so why are the other boxes also not written in Cyrillic?
There is also the possibility that the boxes that are supposedly from Russia were captured early in the conflict from the SAA, since the SAA received a lot of their weapons from Russia. I do not see any date of manufacturing.

Yes, in the 20th century the US bought millions AK-47 from China and then send them to poor countries around the world where Uncle Sam wanted to promote “democracy”.
