Iran warns Turkey not to deploy Patriot missiles

Comments (4)

“Turkey asked NATO for the Patriot system, designed to intercept aircraft or missiles,”

I believe the non-propaganda (normal) way of saying this is “destroy aircraft or missiles”. And you should probably let the readers know the long range of these missiles…

Why are you trying to paint this as a defensive measure??

Everybody knows that these missiles are incapable of shooting down a mortar anyway!

This OFFENSIVE anti-aircraft missile system isnt a “step” towards a no fly zone.. it IS a no fly zone.

So stop lying to us, because once the missiles are in place a no fly zone simply has to be declared and it would be in effect.

Even the term ‘no-fly zone’ is a propaganda term, in reality it is ‘ a threat to shoot down Syrian airforce planes over Syrian territory’.

This is a violation of international law, and the sovereignty of Syria.

Just another one to add to the long list though I suppose, but keep up the propaganda reuters… history will judge you!

@pendingapproval:

This is very true. I always thought of the Patriot system as an ineffective “defensive” measure, the only piece of Regan’s Star War system which has seen the light of the day after sucking up billions of our dollars. You know, something to remember that bumbling idiot, senile Reagan by.

But I had never looked at it as an offensive weapon in support of the no-fly-zone of the week.

Also, it would be very convenient for us to have these in Turkey as yet another measure against Iran.

If the Patroit can effectively implement a non-fly zone, from Turkey, it can protect the anti-Iranian Kurdish terror groups not to mention MEK which is still operating in Iraq from Iranian air raids.
