Racy & Risque.

This is coolbert::

Warning! If you are a person easily offended by images of an adult and intense nature, hit escape now!

Racy! Risque! Scantily-clad! Provocative and intentionally so!

From the Sheldon Adelson Internet web site Israel Hayom the posting of risque images as devoted to military personnel continues more or less unabated!

"Streak of racy soldier photos shows no signs of subsiding"

"Despite the IDF's best efforts, dozens of photos of scantily clad female soldiers continue to circulate on the Internet • The latest photos, posted on the popular photo-sharing site Imgur, are highly explicit and even pornographic"


Barracks room nakedness. Young Israeli women soldiers posing with their M-16 rifle. Explicit. Well, they do seem to have their boots on! 

"Despite the best efforts of the Israel Defense Forces, dozens of photos of scantily clad female soldiers continue to circulate on the Internet."

Beware those images boys! May contain malware. When you download to your computer or smart phone the bad guys can tune-in on you and you are not even aware! Beware!

SCUD's.

This is coolbert:

Within context of that previous blog entry it is WORTHY TO NOTE THAT a number of players and actors currently engaged in the fighting in Syria have SCUD missiles. Each player and actor having their own agenda at odds with one another.

Players and actors to include:

1. "Syria’s Ballistic Missile Arsenal Looms As Assad Regime Buckles"


2. "Arming Hezbollah: Syria's Alleged Scud Missile Transfer"


3. "Does the Islamic State have a Scud missile?"

"Photographs appear to show jihadists with Scud missile – but experts say it is likely inoperable"

4."Islamist Syrian rebels reportedly seize Scud missiles"

"Deputy PM says Israel is tracking developments but sees no immediate danger, adds that ‘when we identified a threat, we took action along the border and elsewhere’"

Those "Islamic Syrian rebels" the Al Nusra Front. Affiliated with Al Qaeda.

The Islamic State [ISIL] also possessing SCUD but apparently as believed those missiles either "inoperable" or lacking any sort of warhead?

A launch from whatever source of a SCUD towards Israeli [even sans warhead] in all likelihood will mean a massive retaliatory response as I have stated before the consequences of which cannot be predicted, a situation almost out-of-control!!

SCUD Syria.

This is coolbert:

OMINOUS! That is my instantaneous response.

From the Sheldon Adelson Internet web site Israel Hayom. The Syrian response to the Israeli air strike on the Syrian Tyras T4 air field a threat most unambiguous!

"Assad: Any future strike will see Syria fire missiles at Israel"

"'The Syrian military will respond to any Israeli aggression on its soil by firing missiles that can carry half a ton of explosives,' Syria reportedly warns Israel via third party • Strikes will target military bases, Haifa chemical plants, Syria warns."

Retaliation by Syrian SCUD missiles the weapon of choice.

See the most recent blog entry as pertaining to this matter:

http://militaryanalysis.blogspot.com/2017/03/t4-syria.html

Warheads of the chemical/high-explosive variety on-call. NO biological hopefully.

THAT USE OF SCUD BY SYRIA AGAINST ISRAEL WOULD MEAN A SIGNIFICANT ESCALATION OF HOSTILITIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST, THE RAMIFICATIONS OF WHICH CANNOT BE PREDICTED WITH ANY DEGREE OF ACCURACY.

Laptops.

This is coolbert:

Additionally from the latest edition of the DEBKAfile newsletter:

"Electronic device ban in flight cabins is futile"
   
22 March.

"For Islamic terrorist groups, blowing up a passenger plane and causing hundreds of deaths is their peak achievement. Therefore, it makes sense for American and British security authorities to focus on preventative measures. But the ban on electronic devices larger than a cell phone in flight cabins won't protect the plane from an explosive laptop hidden in checked luggage."

". . . counter-terrorism sources stress that this ban does not guarantee the plane's safety from terrorist sabotage. A fire in the cabin can be quickly extinguished by the flight crew, but one in the belly of the plane, caused by a timer-activated bomb hidden inside a laptop computer, for example, would more likely cause the plane to crash."

AIRCRAFT OF THE ISRAELI NATIONAL CARRIER EL AL HAVE ARMORED BAGGAGE COMPARTMENTS!! EVEN IF A BOMB GOES OFF IN CHECKED LUGGAGE THE ARMOR WILL CONTAIN THE BLAST, AND HOPEFULLY NO FURTHER DAMAGE TO THE AIRPLANE WILL OCCUR!!

Al-Nojba.

This is coolbert:

Yet more from the latest edition of the DEBKAfile newsletter. Deployment of Iraqi Shia milita seen as ominous.

"Israeli-Russian clash over Hizballah's Golan grab"

20 March.

"DEBKAfile's military sources reveal that Jerusalem was further alarmed Sunday by discovering that an Iraqi Shiite militia was on the way, under the command of Iran's Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleiman, to reinforce Hizballah's Hermon-Golan offensive. This militia, called the Al-Nojba Movement, [consists] of 1,500 Iraqi Shiite fighters,"

"Since the Al Nojba militia has been deployed in the northern Syrian town of Aleppo, its transfer south to fight with Hizballah could not have gone unnoticed by the Russian officers on the ground. The militia's landing on the slopes of Hermon would herald the intrusion of additional foreign pro-Iranian Shiite forces in this embattled location on the fringes of the Golan."

This is the Iraqi Shia militia Harakat al-Nojba. Beholden to Iran in all respects. NOW uniting with Hezbollah units on the Golan heights opposite Israel. Iranian proxies their mission to cause a lot of aggravation for the Israeli.

SA-5 Gammon.

This is coolbert:

Further details from the latest edition of the DEBKAfile newsletter clarifying the recent launch of the Israeli arrow anti-ballistic missile.

"Israeli-Russian clash over Hizballah's Golan grab"

20 March.

"The Israeli drone that targeted the Syrian militiaman Yasser Sayad outside the Golan town of Quneitra Sunday, March 19, reinforced the message first carried by the Israeli Arrow 2 which shot down a Syrian SA-5 anti-air missile Friday."

". . . the Syrian SA-5 was intercepted microseconds before hitting the Israeli jets attacking a consignment of Hizballah weapons outside the Syria T4 base near Palmyra, where a Russian contingent is also housed."

SA-5 Gammon [NATO designation] as intercepted by the Israeli Arrow anti-ballistic-missile. Gammon in two versions, S-200 and S-400. The latter reputed to have an anti-ballistic-missile capability. GAMMON IN ADDITION NOT SOLD OUTSIDE THE SOVIET UNION EXCEPT TO SYRIA!!

T4 Syria.

This is coolbert:

From the latest edition of the DEBKAfile newsletter some details of the 17 March Israeli air force air strikes on the Syrian Tyras T4 airfield!

"Hizballah's trust in Russia - strategic dilemma for Israel"

18 March.
 
"Israel finally took a hand in the swiftly moving events looming from Syria over its northern borders by launching multiple air raids against the key northern Syrian air base known as T4 near Palmyra early Friday night March 17."

. . . .

"military sources describe T4 as the main terminal for Iranian planes to land day by day and unload war materials for their own forces as well as the Syrian army and Hizballah. This air base also houses Russian attack helicopters and special operations troops"

This type of air strike runs a big risk of killing in an unintended manner Russian military personnel and destroying Russian military equipment! Tensions in the area already sky-high, hardly could be worse, further instability not needed!!
