Russian General's Claim of 71 Missiles Downed Countered by Experts, Evidence

Source: Polygraph

Gen.Sergei Rudskoy’s full statement contains multiple inaccurate claims and we will get to them but first the portion that is attracting much of the international interest – that “71 cruise missiles have been intercepted.”

Brian G. Williams, the author of the book “Counter Jihad. The American Military Experience in Afghanistan Iraq and Syria” told Polygraph.info the “claims that 71 percent of US French and British missiles were intercepted are in the realm of fantasy.”

“Not even the advanced Israeli Iron Dome anti-missile system or U.S. Patriot anti-missile systems could achieve such a success rate,” Williams said.

The expert argues that if Russia’s claims were true, there would have been “deaths on the ground.”

1. I mean not to sound alarmist...

But why are we posting anything a Russian general says here? Not that I don’t enjoy let’s disprove the tRump narrative, seems a bit poor taste to talk about the missle count and not the refugeee count.

So yeah, fuck off with that shit.

3. Heh, we zoologically themed types stick together.



I’m not sure one can use the word “fancy” to describe anything related to myself, but I will take it. If you saw this beard, would not be the word that comes to mind, lol.

4. The only people who believed that are Russian & Syrian. And I doubt THEY even buy it.

 

These claims are always inflated to the point that no one will buy it.
By all accounts, they didnt even fire until the attack was over!! Sad!!

5. I am sure that they

Shot down 8 of every 3 missiles that were incoming, while watching reruns of Roseanne and sipping tea, followed by a round of tennis.

No doubt in my mind at all.

9. If the system was so good they'd have shot down 10 out of every 3 missiles.

16. Perhaps even more

except for all the ones that didn't get shot down, like maybe most all of them.

I don't have much faith in the Press Releases of either the Syrians or the Soviets.

11. For a general to lie like that is pathetic. A sure sign of weakness.

Russia bluffs and lies to hide her weakness.

12. It was never about refugees for the Russians

They need to protect one of their very few warm water ports and showcase their weaponry to the world as competition to American weaponry. That's why they openly lie about intercepting American missiles, so they can sell stuff to shady characters who want to intercept American missiles. It's why they use stealth aircraft against ISIS who have no radar.

There is some scuttlebutt that they're trying to build oil and gas pipelines in the area but there are probably easier ways to do that.
