Russian warships dispatched to Syria: Report

Russia has reportedly sent a naval flotilla led by destroyer-class warship Smetlivy to Syrian Mediterranean port of Tartous on a training mission.


According to Russian military sources, the flotilla, including two destroyers and three amphibious landing vessels, started their mission from the Russia’s Arctic port of Severomorsk to Tartus.

Russia’s Interfax news agency quoted a military source as saying that the ships' mission had nothing to do with the ongoing unrest in the Middle Eastern country.

“The ships were carrying marines on a training mission as well as food, water and fuel for Russia's naval maintenance and repair base in Syria's Mediterranean port of Tartous,” the source said on condition of anonymity.

A flotilla of at least 11 Russian warships has been detached from Caspian Sea, Black Sea and North Sea fleet bases and is on its way to the Syrian coast for a maneuver; NATO has consigned its rapid response Maritime Group 2 to the same stretch of sea - where also five Israeli warships are deployed.

The Western alliance has also increased surveillance flights over the Mediterranean from the Geilenkirchen air base in Germany.

This rush of military movements is explained officially by the big air-and-sea exercise launched by Syria Sunday, July 8, to simulate outside aggression. It follows Iran’s practice of continuous military drills for repelling mock Western or Israel attacks.

France is reported in Paris to be massing a large naval force in the United Arab Emirates.

The French nuclear aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle-R91 is expected to dock soon at the French naval base in Port Zayid on Abu Dhabi’s northeastern coast opposite the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

The French are also boosting their air units at Al Dhafra Air Base, stationing them alongside a large American air force presence.

My bad...this could be valid I found a waterway that connects the Volga and Don rivers just a few miles south of Volgograd. A boat the size of a freighter can travel from the Sea of Azoz to the Caspian Sea.

I am looking at pictures of freighters on Google Earth traveling through this canal.

A lot of freighters.

A major shipping channel apparently.

I retract my laughter.

Evidence Of Cluster Bombs Being Deployed In Syria


The video shows around 15 bomblets marked with A-IX-2, a Russian explosive used in military shells.

This would imply the shells are loaded with explosives, but have failed to detonate.

A poster on Something Awful pointed out that they appear to be AO-1 SCH bomblets (image), and are submunitions in a number of bombs.

The next videos show the likely delivery device





It appears the bomb is an RBK-250-275 cluster bomb

[link to www.uxoinfo.com]

[link to img217.imageshack.us]

It is believed that the RBK-250-275 was originally designed to carry fragmentation bomblets designated AO-2.5.

However, later versions carried 150 AO-1 SCh fragmentation bomblets, or 30 PTAB-2.5 anti-armour bomblets.

The designation letters AO stand for aviatsionnaya oskolochnaya meaning 'aircraft fragmentation', PTAB stands for protivo-tankovaya aviatsionnaya bomba meaning 'anti-tank aircraft bomb'.

Hiltlery Clinton can tell Syria "time is running out" all she wants.

After Saddam got a knife in his anus(and given that he tolerated rape of his subordinates I'm not saying he didn't deserve it) Syria's leaders have every right to quell this rebellion so they don't get knifed in the anus.

Hillary can tell them that time is running out after her hubby gets knifed in the anus by rebels.

I don't understand Hillary suggesting that Syria's leader should allow this ARMED rebellion to take place after Saddam got a knife in the anus without a court trial, and believe you me he deserved it, but Syria's leader shouldn't tolerate armed rebellion.

MOSCOW — Russia said on Tuesday that it had dispatched a flotilla of 11 warships to the eastern Mediterranean, some of which would dock in Syria.

It would be the largest display of Russian military power in the region since the Syrian conflict began almost 17 months ago.

Nearly half of the ships were capable of carrying hundreds of marines.

The unusually large size of the force announced on Tuesday was considered a message, not just to the region but also to the United States and other nations supporting the rebels now trying to depose Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad.

From Naval OS Intel:

Though Russia claims these are scheduled exercises, it is more likely a show of support for President Basher Assad’s regime, a deterrent to any Turkish or NATO action and/or a task force to evacuate Russian military and civilian personnel should Assad’s regime collapse.

From the Black Sea naval base at Sevastopol the Russian destroyer ‘Smetlivy’, will transit the Turkish Straits before entering the Aegean Sea en route to Syria.

Turkey’s coast guard has also confirmed passage yesterday of the Russian amphibious assault ships ‘Nikolai Filchenkov’, ‘Caesar Kunikov’ and 2 smaller vessels.

Moscow's Marines Head for Syria

The Russian defense ministry has dispatched a group of ships to the Mediterranean.

Among their destinations is the Syrian port of Tartus.

The vessels include at least three amphibious landing craft, capable of transporting armored vehicles and dozens of marines.

If the force actually reaches Syria, it will represent a significant increase in Moscow's involvement there beyond delivering arms (whether new or refurbished) to the beleaguered Assad regime.

The Kremlin clearly wants America and others to understand that maintaining its presence in Tartus is a very high priority for Moscow.

Tartus consists of little more than a floating refueling station and some small barracks. But any strengthened Russian presence there could forestall Western military intervention in Syria.

The Russian announcement got a muted response in Washington. “Russia maintains a naval supply and maintenance base in the Syrian port of Tartus,” said Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the National Security Council. “We currently have no reason to believe this move is anything out of the ordinary, but we refer you to the Russian government for more details.”
