A somewhat similar argument could be made for the WW II, but, in general, preventive wars are nothing new in human history. But what about Russia, one may ask, or China.
Following this publication I received an email from a reader asking me the following question: I am confused by Putins actions — does Putin support the Zionist entity, on the quiet like.
I would appreciate your feedback on this matter. Also — I have heard, but not been able to confirm, that the Russian Jewish immigrants to Occupied Palestines are the most ardent tormenters of the Palestinians — it takes quite some doing to get ahead of the likes of Netanyahu.
I often see that question in emails and in comments, so I wanted to address this issue today. First, we need to look at some critical assumption implied by this question. That Russia can do something to stop the Israelis That Russia should or even is morally obliged to do something.
Let me begin by saying that I categorically disagree with both of these assumptions, especially the 2nd one. Russia can stop the Israeli attacks on Syria How? I think that the list of options is fairly obvious here.
So talking to them is just a waste of oxygen. What about threatening them? Actually, I think that this could work, but at what risk and price?
In fact, their record is pretty good. Now if you look at where the Russian air defenses are, you will see that they are all concentrated around Khmeimim and Tartus.
Yes, an S has a very long range, but that range is dependent on many things including the size of the target, its radar-cross section, its electronic warfare capabilities, the presence of specialized EW aircraft, altitude, etc.
The Israelis are skilled pilots who are very risk averse so they are very careful about what they do. Finally, the Israelis are very much aware of where the Russians are themselves and where there missiles are.
I think that it would be pretty safe to say that the Israelis make sure to keep a minimal safe distance between themselves and the Russians, if only to avoid any misunderstanding. In this article Darius Shahtahmasebi writes: In practical terms this means this: While this is the kind of calculations the USA simply ignores at least officially — hence all the saber-rattling against the DPRKRussia is ruled by a sane and responsible man who cannot make it a habit of simply waltzing into a conflict hence the Russian decision not to retaliate in kind against the shooting down of the Russian SU by the Turks.
There are also simply factual issues to consider: In fact, both Israel and CENTCOM simply have such a numbers advantage over the relatively small Russian contingent that they both could over-run the Russian defenses, even if they would take losses in the process.
So yes, the Russian probably could stop one or a few Israeli attacks, but if the Israelis decided to engage in a sustained air campaign against targets in Syria there is nothing the Russians could do short of going to war with Israel.
So here again a very basic strategic principle fully applies: Put simply this means: And this begs a critical look at the second assumption:02 Market and Industry Trends.
Relatively inflexible baseload generators, such as coal and nuclear power plants, have always been complemented by FLEXIBLE GENERATION to adapt the electricity supply to time-variable demand.
