    Well, that's what YOUR side said, anyway

    As a very wise Chinese guy named Lao Tzu once said, 'There is no greater danger than underestimating your opponent.'

    But, what one can see on the ground is only one target visibly destroyed, no damage anywhere else; and no casualties either (but that's more because Trump, with his loud-mouthing on Twitter, gave them plenty of warning and more than enough time to prepare and evacuate and hide everything lol)

    Photographic evidence indicates that all of the targets were hit.

    They all hit their target because if some of them were shot down we would not have hesitated to report that they were.

    That makes as much sense as those who question that a tree falling in a forest makes no noise unless someone is there to see it.

    Agreed. From a technological perspective, that's extremely difficult -- there's a reason that even the US, which spends countless billions on this, winds up having to game the tests in order to show "successes."

    In fact, most of the Syrian countermeasures, including air-defense missiles, were fired after U.S. and allied missiles had already hit their targets, McKenzie told reporters on Saturday.


    The bombers were accompanied by a single EA-6B Prowler for electronic warfare suppression, potentially against Russian air defenses, as well as tanker support, according to a Joint Staff spokesman. Defense News added, "inclusion of the EA-6B is notable, as that aircraft was officially retired by the Navy in 2015 in favor of the more advanced EA-18G Growler."
