US Hypersonic Aircraft Will Not Catch Russia Flat-Footed

The all-new Voronezh-class radar stations are able to spot and track America’s hypersonic aircraft designed to bypass Russia’s missile warning system. Until very recently the trajectories of these “fast runners” were impossible to register, much less to track.

Right now the Pentagon is developing several hypersonic vehicles as part of the DARPA Falcon Project. The Advanced Hypersonic Weapon (AHW), which accelerated to about 6 kilometers a second during flight tests in 2015 and 2016, is in the final stages of development now. Continue reading

Moscow will halt military steps in Ukraine – only after a US guarantee not to post missile shield there

As Washington and the Europeans – and especially the UK – continue to decry Russian military aggression, the US and Russians have quietly entered into intense negotiations on a compromise for resolving their dispute over Ukraine, debkafile’s Washington and Moscow sources report.

US-led NATO intervention begins in Syria war. Patriots in Turkey

Knowing that the Western powers will continue the ousting of the Assad regime, the last highlighted portion is what makes this great game so dangerous. In addition, knowing that special teams have been assembled for securing Syrian chemical weapons and are ready at any moment’s notice in nearby countries, a full-blown war is a foregone conclusion decided long ago. The situation will likely escalate to highly dangerous situations and should Damascus use its WMDs, it will be razed and never hold power again. Isaiah 17:1 has foretold this although never described how.

Tuesday, Nov. 27, the Middle East military spotlight swung around from Gaza to the Syrian war with steps for the start of US and NATO intervention in that conflict. Without spelling this out, a game changer began unfolding when a joint Turkish-NATO team began making a site survey  for the deployment of Patriot Air and Missile Defense Systems, manned by American military teams. The team, said the statement from Ankara, will assess where to station the missiles and how many would be needed. It reiterated that the system is “for defensive purposes” and not for a “no-fly zone or offensive operations,” but just for use “against an air or missile threat from Syria.”

However, the Patriots in combination with already installed elements of the missile shield, will command an area beyond the Turkish-Syrian border – all of northern Syria up to and including the embattled towns of Aleppo and Homs, debkafile’s military sources report. Continue reading
