Pentagon Silent On Turkeys Russian S-400 Delivery As Congress Demands Immediate Sanctions

Published time: 12 Jul, 2019 23:29



As Turkey beamed out images of Russian S-400 air defense systems being delivered, US lawmakers demanded immediate sanctions against Ankara, while the Pentagon and the State Department remained strangely silent.

House Foreign Affairs Committee chair Eliot Engel (D-New York) and ranking member Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) reacted to the delivery of the missiles by declaring that Turkey and its president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, “must face stiff consequences.”

“President Erdogan was given a very clear choice. Unfortunately, he has clearly made the wrong one. That a NATO ally would choose to side with Russia and Vladimir Putin over the alliance and closer cooperation with the United States is hard to fathom,” the duo said in a statement on Friday.

They demanded of the Trump administration to “terminate” Turkey’s participation in the F-35 stealth fighter program and “sanction Turkish individuals doing business with the Russian defense sector, as required by law.”

2. Erdogan will show them off, everyone will know where they are

Be interesting which has problems first, the Russian crews or the hardware itself

3. Keep hoping. They look pretty mobile to me. You suggesting a NATO country should

attack another NATO country?

I thought you to be more reasonable than that drivel.

SAD.

BTW, I understand the S-500 has been given the go ahead for full production...

4. I am thinking the Kurds would like nothing better than to blow up Erdogan's new toy

They are mobile but have limitations and also need certain types of locations to function at their best. They will have to be sequestered to protect them. Erdogan's regime is repressive and is having all sorts of problems.

They built the S-500 because the 400 and 300 were not adequate against top line western equipment like the B-1, F-22 and F-35. The B-21 is in into development, meaning an S-600, 700, and 800 will be in the work.

5. The S-500 is designed for intercepting and destroying intercontinental ballistic missiles, as well

as designed for intercepting and destroying intercontinental ballistic missiles, as well as hypersonic cruise missiles and aircraft, for air defense against Airborne Early Warning and Control and for jamming aircraft so cut the bullshit
Margaret.

The S-400 can easily handle your above mentioned and if not, why are all you neocons in near hysteria over its sale and proliferation, hmmm?

6. Not hysteria, amusement after what happened in Syria

They will insist on a Russian cadre and not really train locals to run and maintain it. They will milk it until the Rodina needs more cash and then will do what Apple does to old Iphone to get them to upgrade.

Nothing about IADS is easy. The S-400 makes claims, and like the S-300 will continue to make them until shown to be bogus by the Israelis or the US.
