Syrian airbase hit by US up and running again

Syrian warplanes took off from an air base which was hit by U.S. cruise missiles on Friday, and carried out air strikes on rebel-held areas in the eastern Homs countryside, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The U.S. Navy had fired dozens of missiles at the air base near Homs city in response to a chemical attack this week which Washington and its allies blamed on the Damascus government.

The British-based Observatory, a group monitoring the Syrian war using sources on the ground, said eight people had been killed in the U.S. attack.

The extent of the damage to the Shayrat air base was not entirely clear, but the Syrian warplanes had "done the impossible" in order to continue using it for sorties, the Observatory told Reuters. (Reporting by John Davison; Editing by Angus MacSwan)

I guess 59 was not enough. Wtf....

60 million well spent.

They destroyed 6 mig (MiG-29C, cost $22 million Us 6x22=$132 million dollars worth of damages alone

All they need is to patch the runway and then any jet that remains can take off. 

Isn't the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights one dude who has been inaccurate in the past?

Winning.

cost us 60 million to do it

I read yesterday that all they can do is take off and land there but they can't refuel, etc. They said they left the runway intact because it's easy to fix.

US is 20 Trillion in debt.  Trump could fire 60 missiles a day, every day, for 900 years and it still wouldn't equal 20 trillion.

Complaining about the cost of the missiles is like wondering if you left the stove on while drowning in the middle of the ocean... and a shark has ripped off one of your legs at the knee and you're losing massive blood and slowly starting to blacking out.

RC planes.

THis.

 

Last month our military had jets out on a mission near Mosul and the runway was bombed.  They have a special mix of concrete that sets up in twenty minutes.  You just fill the hole with the mix and spray water on it with a fire hose.  They were landing planes an hour after the bombing.

That impresses fuck all. You'll never understand.

It looks like only 23 missles hit their mark out of 59.

THIS



Also those missles are just sitting there already paid for. It's not like we buy them right when they are used. They have been bought and paid for, for some time now. Not using them costs us the exact same as using them.

Yeah, you'll print more money and scrape through for a bit longer.
