BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:52 A.M.) – Amid a very recent dispatch of reinforcements to Syria, the Russian Aerospace Forces have brought with them a number of its latest 5th generation stealth air superiority fighters – the Su-57.

According to photo evidence (shown above) at least two Su-57 stealth fighters arrived at the Russian Khmeimim Air Base.

Along with the 5th generation stealth aircraft came another 8 warplanes including four Su-35S multi-role air superiority fighters and four Su-25 ground attack aircraft.

The reason for the sudden boosting of Russian airpower in Syria following Putin’s withdrawal directive of December 2017 is official unknown (with even the most skeptical sources assuming that the Russian leadership would wait until after the elections before reinforcing its presence in Syria).

With the arrival of the Su-57s (and additional warplanes in general), it appears that Moscow is expecting major escalations in Syria during 2018 and – having been caught off-guard in the past – wants to be fully prepared for anything drastic situation that may arise.

Well, it’s more simple for Su-57 : they’re simply in final pre-serie tests phase until the starting of full production planned for 2019… So, as near 200 other weapons systems that have been field tested in Syria, so will be Su-57. The US’ F-35 that have been deployed around Korea are at a very different level of development : they’re still at prototype level for 12 years! Their “Initial Operational tests and essays” (IOT&E) won’t start at best until end 2018 but more likely in 2019, maybe even 2020. After such phase of tests, you have to fix the remaining… Read more »

I type on keyboard near as fast as I speak and faster than you think! Do you know that Qur’an is pro-Zionist? Quran 5.20. And (remember) when Moses warned his people, saying: “O my people! Remember God’s favor upon you,3 for He appointed among you Prophets, and appointed (among you) rulers (while in Egypt; and made you free to manage your own affairs), and He granted to you favors such as He had not granted to anyone else in the worlds. Quran 5..21. “O my people! Enter the holy land which God has prescribed for you and commanded you to… Read more »

Why would he be a racist? Arabs and Jews are both of Semitic stock. So what are you talking about?

Dissolve all religions around the globe now to have a better world.

And you are Jewish but not an Orthodox one.
