The US State Department said why Patriot air defense missile systems did not save Saudi Arabia from drone

The failure of the Saudi Arabian air defense, which is based on American detection systems and Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems, has put the United States in an uncomfortable position.




The head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, had to puff off the “allies and partners” from Riyadh for the failure of air defense, who did not think up anything better than saying that air defense systems around the world “show a contradictory result” and “even the best of them are not always intercepting targets. ”

The US Secretary of State assured that the Americans will continue to work to ensure that in the future such attacks are no longer successful.

The US official added that the US was the first to face such a massive attack, and consider the attack on Saudi Aramco's enterprises an “act of war."

This childishly naive explanation of Pompeo led a number of experts to conclude that the attack on the Saudi oil industry was carried out as a result of an agreement between the Saudis and the Americans, and had at least two goals: to keep the price of oil and accuse Iran of committing this attack .

Judging by the increase in oil prices following the attack, statements by the White House and “suddenly” found fragments of an Iranian rocket, the main objectives of the attack were achieved.

About what further development this combination will receive will become known in the near future.

    -Yes, figs with this Pompeo ...- let him as he wants ...- and get out ...
    - The main thing is that the Americans would not organize (of course with the hands of the same bahti .., pah ..., that is, with the hands of the barmalei) the same attack on our base Hmeimim ...
    -I'm not sure that our air defense systems will be effective enough ...
    - Yes, and Israel today is more afraid of Iran than our air defense in Syria ... -And it burns with impunity from anywhere in Syria ... when it pleases ... -And even sometimes it destroys modern Russian-made air defense systems ...
    -So ... -no one is guaranteed ..- Alas ...

    A large-scale attack is 10 drones? And then what will be called 2-3 dozen ONYs?

      M. Khodorenok on Vesti FM radio explained what a real large-scale attack is. Of course, not a dozen drones ...
      By the way, in the USSR cruise missiles were developed in the 1950s, for example, for the S-500 complex: "According to the tactical and technical specifications, the unmanned interceptor RM-500 was designed to destroy high-speed high-speed targets (aircraft, cruise missiles) on oncoming and oncoming intersecting Interception range - 800–1000 km, Interception heights - 25–30 km,
      Marching speed - 4700 km / h (M = 4,3)

    About the "trace of Iran." As with the Malaysian Boeing (Boeing), as with Russian hackers and interference in US elections, - I recalled a joke half a century ago:

    Lecturer on the farm: "Martin Luther King was killed ..."
    From the audience: "Who did they kill?"
    Lecturer: "Martin Luther ..."
    From the audience: "Who?"
    Lecturer: "Martina ..."
    From the audience: "Who?"
    The lecturer is annoyed: "Whoever needs to be killed!"

    yes bullshit all this.
    Like the Patriots, in Syria nifiga air defense systems cannot fend off Israeli gifts and all kinds of drones if they don’t stupidly go to the guarded object.

      Over Israeli territory appeared drone completely incomprehensible country. Hets let him in, he was not afraid. Several Patriots let him in; he was not afraid again. Then several fighter jets flew out, but he, too, was not afraid. When the hiding planes then stopped, he flew deep into Syria and disappeared from view. And this really influenced all of Israel - as this foreign technique is not afraid of Israeli and everyone was covered with sweat.

        Have you come up with?

        Jews regularly report how they bring down something. Loners - 100%. Mass raids - less than 100%.

        Similarly, ours.

    UAVs flew wrong. They flew like lightning. Why so fast? No, in a zigzag! Type of a Jewish joke. My son Monya rides a bicycle like lightning! Why so fast? No, in a zigzag!
