    They can target them by timing the cellphone disruption and guessing the location and exact direction. Well, they could try that if any were any left after a first strike.

    They don't know.

    Could foreign powers find ways to circumvent the S-300 system if it were deployed?

    One way to circumvent air-defense systems is to try to disrupt their operations through electronic techniques rather than attack them directly. But Elleman says it is an open question whether the S-300 could be blocked this way.

    "Electronic warfare and spoofing of systems in quite common," he says, "but one must keep in mind that the S-300 is a very sophisticated piece of weaponry. And I am not convinced that the West, Israel, or Turkey could reliably neutralize the system without taking some kind of kinetic action -- in other words, going after some of the radar or some of the interceptors [with force]. So, in terms of circumventing, I think it would be very difficult and very risky." .....snip~

    What happens when we use cruise missiles and Syria has no capacity to respond? Are you gonna be like "oh, well, it coulda been different"? No, it can't be. Syria can do nothing against a US first-strike.

    What you don't think he will put his values in Civilian Neighborhoods. We will end up killing more than what was gassed in this attack.

    If the enemy doesn't mind blowing up houses then the tanks are history.
    If you fight with a big poofy glove on one hand and tie the other behind your back what's the point?

    Basically if you don't want to kill people, then you shouldn't be at war, but then gee there'd be no reason at all to continue
    spending trillions of dollars feeding the Military/industrial complex?

    I still say we are not getting nearly the bang for our bucks we deserve.
    Yikes.
    Sounds like you're saying that all those trillions of dollars should have produced a higher body count by now.
