Russian Warship Steaming Toward U.S Destroyers Off Syria Coast

Tyler Durden's picture

Early this morning we reported that as part of its response to the Syrian attack, in addition to suspending communication with U.S. forces designed to stop planes colliding over Syria, the Russian frigate Admiral Grigorovich would be deployed to the Tartus naval base in Syria. The Russian Black Sea Fleet’s frigate The Admiral Grigorovich, currently on a routine voyage, would enter the Mediterranean later on Friday, a military-diplomatic source in Moscow told TASS, adding that the ship would make a stop at the logistics base in Syria’s port of Tartus.

Russia wasted no time, and as FN reports, moments ago, the Russian frigate, Admiral Grigorovich RFS-494, crossed through the Bosphorus Strait “a few hours ago” from the Black Sea, according to a U.S. defense official. 

The Russian warship is now in the eastern Mediterranean steaming in the direction of the U.S. warships. The Admiral Grigorovich is armed with advanced Kalibr cruise missiles. 

According to the official version, the frigate was bound for the Syrian port of Tartus on a routine voyage, the Russian news agency TASS reported Friday, citing a military-diplomatic source.

"The Russian ship armed with cruise missiles Kalibr will visit the logistics base in Tartus, Syria," the source said, according to TASS. The ship was currently near the Black Sea straits, Tass reported.  The ship left on a voyage after stopping at Novorossiisk for supplies and taking part in a joint exercise with Turkish ships in the Black Sea.

Meanwhile, Fox News adds that one of the American destroyers that launched the missiles into Syria started heading to an undisclosed location to rearm.

It could just be going to Syria.

This is great.  Trump blows up a few things to make the MIC happy and distract the lemmings from what he's getting done at home, and Russia blows up ISIS for us.


Is there nothing the Troll King can't accomplish with hsi troll magic?

I can only imagine the spins about Russia and Trump from that guy Maddow tonight.

I hope their missiles err greatly to the southeast of Syria where the true culprits lurk.

Southwest would work too.

Yes... Southwest... that's what I meant.  Senility is creeping up on me.

As Kissinger has implied in most o fhis lectures the past 8 years or so, this type of stuff significantly pushes Russia and China and all our other enemies closer while serving zero purpose to the advantage of the American people.

indeed trump should be careful.  aircraft carriers were decisive weapons in world war two but missile technology has greatly reduced their real lethality in a closely matched war (all the wars the u.s. has fought since ww2 have had huge colonial dimensions to them with the opponents always far weaker, even though a number proved victorious by the guerrilla standard of not losing, with some winning outright, such as vietnam).

trump, while basking in praise and adoration from those who previously scorned him, should consider the sources.  it is still possible that he has actually duped the cia and the warmongering zionists, democrats, etc. and he and putin are laughing up their sleeves.  but if not, this is the worst kind of obamaism: utterly fucking over his base of supporters while doing outright war crime evil to the detriment of the short and long term geostrategic interests of the u.s. (as well as violating the constitution he swore to preserve, protect and defend).

as with crack and smack, so with, particularly, the illegitimate, violent abuse of power: yes, just this once, are infamous last words.

The article you link to by Glen Greenwald makes some very good points but shows his ignorace on others. According to those who have thoroughly researched the situation there was no popular uprising, ala Arab Spring, in Syria as Greenwald claims. There were some small peaceful demonstrations of which Assad listened to their demands and met many of them. He also had his police and soldiers walk around unarmed so as to not provoke any violence to the detriment of those police and soldiers as the jihadists, imported and supported by Qatar Saudi Arabia and the US like they did in Libya, who hijacked those demonstrations slaughtered them by the hundreds. Same "he's killing his people" propaganda, sucked up by the gullible sheep, to drum up support for regime change in Libya, Egypt, and Syria. Greenwald gets on board with the media claiming Assad has killed hundreds of thousands of people as if the jihadists were just playing patty cake and the videos ISIS and others posted didn't exist. Yet every unproven rumor of Assad butchering was taken as gospel. Such as when they liberated Allepo the lamestream US media claimed huge attrocities, unproven as usual, by Assad and Russia and refused to believe reports and videos that the people in Allepo were celebrating or that the rebels were killing people trying to escape and using them for human shields.

The real kicker is that Hillary and the Dems have been trapped by their rhetoric and must approve of Trumps warmongering. They are celebrating as this is what they wanted all along and love the fact that by turning to the darkside Trump lost huge support and made the loser Dems relevent again. The Dems are losing a huge amount of sleep over this as they pop the champagne corks and celebrate their sudden rise and Trump sealing his own demise. If anyone is trapped it's Trump.

gonetogalt's picture

Same as always, you convert to acknowledge that Christ is the same 'Son of Man' that Enoch, 7th from Adam, prophesized from before the flood would come and kick ass on this soon coming great day.

Russians are Christians, pure and simple, unfouled by Rome's centuries of BS. Wanna be a Russian? Start with God.

I am disgusted - bigly.

I am sick of hearing he is playing chess.  Maybe. But he is willingly letting in neocons and fools into his circle.

I understand daddy's girl can do no wrong but she and jared need out of the first circle immediately.  If he loses his base he us fucked no matter what.  He is playing with fire

Trump is being foolish. He has a small windiw ti redeem himself with me. But i feel burned.

Read my lips, no new taxes. Similar. Only worse

+10000000 bigly I actually had hope an outsider could be different and make a difference looks like torches and pitchforks

tmosley's picture

Sorry, but he is playing chess.

It just turned out that we were pawns, not the king.

I agree with you that he can redeem himself, but it is going to be difficult. If he wants to gamble, let him bet his own life.

Still riding trump's dick? Is his cum salty or sweet?

Sounds as if you know the taste of cock.

always a touch salty with notes of bleach.

now pussy on the other hand, complex as wine or scotch, imo.

L0L! How's it feel to be a Trump Chump? You and all the other Trumptards look like a bag of schmucks.

Hey, we were behind him until he did shit that was completely against why we were behind him.

Now we are done with him.

Had he been a good boy all for his full term would you change your mind???

Somehow I doubt it.

not dead yet's picture

Yes people were behind Trump and rightly dump him for this incident. Shows intelligence and critical thinking when things change and real people adapt. The absolute worst people are the ones who will never criticise their government and believe that crap my country right or wrong. These same despicable sheep believe every lie fed to them as they are led into the abyss. Like the short term trolls here who are totally brainwashed by Hillary, the Dems, and the libs.
