Putin Hopes "There Will Be No Need To Nuke" The Islamic State

Tyler Durden's picture

Earlier today, in a clear advance notice to the French and US navies which are both set to arrive just off the coast of Syria in the coming weeks, Russia for the first time targeted Islamic State targets in Syria with Kalibr land-attack cruise missiles launched from a submarine in the Mediterranean Sea off the Syrian coastline, according to Russia’s Defense Minister.

According to RT, the 3M-54 Kalibr missiles were launched from the Kilo-class diesel-electric submarine “Rostov-on-Don”, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu told President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday.

While as reported here before, Russian warships based in the Caspian and Mediterranean seas had launched similar missiles targeting ISIS positions in late November, this was the first time that Russia has targeted IS in Syria from a submarine.

The submarine cruise missile launch and subsequent strikes are shown in the clip below:

According to a Kremlin transcript of the conversation, Shoigu told Putin that the missiles successfully targeted two major terrorist positions in the territory of Raqqa, adding that “we can say with absolute confidence that significant damage has been inflicted upon ammunition warehouses and a mine production plant, as well as the oil infrastructure."

In addition to the submarine, a Russian Ministry of Defense source revealed that the Rostov-on-Don, equipped with modern Russian Kalibr cruise missiles, had appeared near the Syrian coast. Additionally, just before the USS Harry S. Truman carrier arrives, the Russian cruiser Varyag, which is currently off India’s coast for Exercise Indra till Dec. 12, will set sail for the Mediterranean to replace the cruiser Moskva.


However, what was most notable in today's update by the Russian defense ministry was neither the news about the sub, or the second ship deployment, but what Putin told Shoigu during their conversation according to the Kremlin's transcript. Which is as follows:

Regarding the submarine strikes we must, of course, analyze everything that happens on the battlefield, how the weapons acts. Both the "Kalibrs" and the X-101 rockets as a whole proved to be very good. This new, modern, highly efficient, and highly precise weapon can be equipped with both a conventional warhead as well as a special, nuclear warhead.  Naturally, in the fight against terrorism that is unnecessary, and I hope there will be no need [to use nukes against the Islamic State].

But, if it is.... which of course was the unsaid message: Russia not only can deploy tactical nuclear warheads to Syria overnight, but it may, "not now", but eventually be forced to use them against "the Islamic State."

And just like that Putin hinted that the Syrian proxy war, as it escalates ever wider and drags in increasingly more countries in true "world war" fashion, may just have one or more mushroom clouds in its near future; clouds which will will target none other than the CIA's pet project designed to take down Assad - the Islamic State. We are not sure if this particular cloud will have a silver lining, but we are confident that not even Turkey will want to buy ISIS oil if it happens to have the same radioactivity profile as Fukushima.

I could see Vlad using a low-yield nuke from a corvette in the Caspian; the Pentagon would resume shitting turds from a month back

Only on this site can you find enough fringe lunatics to think this is somehow a positive.

Better that Putin nuke Islam than the U.S.  Think there is blowback now?

What blowback?  We had a false flag to bring in more ligislation and support for the ongoing war on ERROR.

Yes, they are all false flags.  Same with Pearl Harbor.  Man did we spend money  on the military by faking a Jap attack on Hawaii.  And the moon landing thing - all done on a Hollywood set.  Fake, fake, fake...  I'm with ya, dude!

Check out 1:55 in.  Unless it's faked, it's gamma or alpha, or whatever waves smashing the CCD.  Drop a camera into a Fukushima reactor blown core, same thing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWveLHVG7mo  I'm not an expert but seems like fairly straight forward science.


Happens at 27 seconds in as well.  barf

Aiding and abeting the enemy is treason.

But not for Israel, because ISIS is their proxy army.

Yes, still a Creepy A. rocket scientist who drives a 1976 Ford 3600 tractor.  After Creepy A. disappeared I thought that I'd leave my profile a mystery.  Too many micro-aggressions and safe space violations in it?

Hey, don't hate on the dude's tractor! That is a beautiful 1950's vintage Ford 8N. That tractor single-handedly revolutionized agriculture. Frming is still largely done with adaptations of innovations first introduced with that machine. Plus, it is beautiful.

By the way, in regards to Putin's cruise missile and submarine launched missiles, all I can say is: "Practice makes perfect. Real world practice makes perfect better."

NoDebt's picture

@LSD (and I just now noted your screen name abbreviates nicely into that acronym)- on ZH everything is a false flag.  It's like a religion around here or something.  You just gotta roll with it.  Used to bother me, but now it's just a reminder that you should always consider the source of the information.  Keeps you on your toes that not everything is as reported by the MSM.

Not sure if it's a blessing or a curse, but it serves a legitimate purpose.  The only thing we know for sure is that the dinosaurs died off because of a CIA black op.

@NoDebt - I appreciate it.  The everything-is-a-false-flag types (obviously most on ZH) don't bother me.  It's kind of fun.  The over the top reaction to someone not believing that everything is a false flag is fun to read.  Totally spastic in some cases!  :)  I prefer to think things through, as I can see you do. And I rarely believe the legacy media.  THey have a solid, Big Government, Central PLanning, agenda.

Maybe I should stop poking the false flag gods...  :)

Its clear as day now that there was advanced warning before the Japanese plans hit pearl harbor. That warning was not sent to Pearl Harbor. So it wasn't as if it was fake but it was aloud to happen to have maximum damage. Big difference between a surprise attack and an attack you are warned about.

No mate, Islamic terror totally ruins the narrative that they had going.  The news bent over backward to try to make San Bernardino as another crazy white guy with an assault rifle.  I watched the news reports come in while listening to the police scanner and the news was clearly injecting shit that was wrong.  Had this been a crazy white nutter on SSRIs, you were going to see a humongous push for gun control. 

NoDebt's picture

You and your facts.  Pish posh.  Like we're NOT seeing a humongous push for gun control anyway?

El Vaquero's picture

Naw, our shitfuck president has kind of given up on the gun control thing for now.  He's going to push something that was rejected by congress, what, a day or two before his little speech?  I'm referring to the no fly list thing there, of course.  Other than that, it was some vague shit about congress should do some shit about assault rifles and shit. 

Our government, deep state included, is scared of us.  Enough people in CT decided to not register their "assault" rifles to send up some serious red flags.  Us gun nuts ain't giving another fucking inch.
