Al-Qaeda commander in Syria: US supporting us…but not enough.

"The U.S. support the opposition, but not directly. They support the countries which support us. But we are not yet satisfied with this support. They should support us with highly developed weapons. We have won battles thanks to the "TOW" missiles. We reached a balance with the regime through these missiles. We received the tanks from Libya through Turkey. Also the "BMs" - multiple rocket launchers", Abu al-Ezz, the jihadi commander, told reporter Jürgen Todenhöfer.

He made it clear that the group (now known as Jabhet Fateh al-Sham) doesn't recognize the ceasefire recently brokered by the US and Russia, saying that they took advantage of it in repositioning the fighters to undertake an overwhelming attack against the government forces.

"We do not recognize the ceasefire. We will reposition our groups. We will undertake in the next, in a few days an overwhelming attack against the regime. We have rearranged all our armed forces in all provinces, in Homs, Aleppo, Idlib and Hama", he explained.

"We accept no one from the Assad-regime or from the Free Syrian Army, which is called moderate. Our aim is the downfall of the regime and the founding of an Islamic state according to the Islamic sharia", he added.

I made the trip to San Diego to see the Miramar Air Show last weekend:

Some of the F/A-18Cs and AV-8B Harrier IIs on the flightline before taking the tram to the main show area.

Easily my favourite static display at the show, the B-1B Lancer. An iconic Cold Warrior:

An up close and personal look at the AN/AAQ-33 "Sniper" Advanced Targeting Pod mounted on said aircraft:

And a look inside its internal bomb bay:

Another classic, a USAF F-4E Phantom II:

Next, a KC-135 Stratotanker. Appropriately enough, it was directly ahead of the Bone:

The public was given the opportunity to enter the aircraft, and despite my greatest wish to get some pictures from the boom operator's station, the wait was simply too long and we had to make haste to get front row spots on the flightline.

"Growlers! Look, baby! EA-18G Growlers!" I yelped to my girlfriend. For some inexplicable reason she appeared disinterested and gave me a "I'm happy for you" look before turning her attention to the $11 craft beer stands in the 96 degree San Diego heat.

Russia establish no-fly zone in Syria.
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-russia-syria-missiles-idUSKCN1261H7?il=0

Russia's Defence Ministry said on Thursday the United States should carefully consider the consequences of strikes on Syrian army positions because such strikes would obviously threaten Russian servicemen.

Commenting on Russia's S-300 air defense complexes recently deployed to Syria, the ministry said in a statement that their crews would hardly have time to detect the exact flight paths of missiles or from what direction they were launched.

The ministry also mentioned a more sophisticated air defense system, the S-400, which safeguards Russia's Hmeymim air base in Syria.

“Nobody believes in it. You’re like, ‘**** this,’” a former Green Beret says of America’s covert and clandestine programs to train and arm Syrian militias. “Everyone on the ground knows they are jihadis. No one on the ground believes in this mission or this effort, and they know they are just training the next generation of jihadis, so they are sabotaging it by saying, ‘**** it, who cares?’”

 

“I don’t want to be responsible for Nusra guys saying they were trained by Americans,” the Green Beret added. A second Special Forces soldier commented that one Syrian militia they had trained recently crossed the border from Jordan on what had been pitched as a large-scale shaping operation that would change the course of the war. Watching the battle on a monitor while a drone flew overhead, “We literally watched them, with 30 guys in their force, run away from three or four ISIS guys.”

Western hysteria - NATO agents surrounded with other jihadists in Allepo, Westlings can't evacuate them because of Russian no-fly zone and these SpecOps agents must die or surrender to Russians/Syrians soon. Obviously for West  is much better if these servicemen just die, but what if they survive and  uncover secrets about  Al-Qaeda joint operations? Risk is too high!

Russia is risking becoming an international "pariah" following its bomb attacks in Syria, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has said.

You can get a pretty good rundown of how the Aegis Combat System works from this video:

 

 

Some reports seemed to suggest that the inbound vampires fell well short of the Mason anyways while the SM-2s and ESSM were mid-flight, probably spoofed into the ocean by jamming from the Mason. If true, then there remains not a single instance in the whole of modern naval warfare where an anti-ship missile has successfully impacted a ship that was employing any kind of ECM of countermeasures.

USS Nitze launches Tomahawks against coastal surveillance radar sites in retaliation:

However "tattle" ships such as speed boats with commercial GPS devices can still be a problem, helping to cue further attacks against targets further out to sea. Though I suppose it's serendipitous that the Ponce has that LaWS on board:
