(TRUNEWS) On Today’s episode Rick Wiles held a round table discussion with Doc Burkhart, Bob Biermann, & Edward Szall, to discuss the latest deployments in the world, as we collectively head toward another World War.
On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, he was fairly confident that serious damage was done to weapons stores, a factory for preparing mines and ISIS’s oil infrastructure, after his nation successful launched a slew of submarine based missiles against two large terrorist positions in Raqqa.
Putin also commented during that conversation, that both the Calibre missiles and the Kh-101 rockets were showing good results, and that these new modern high-precision weapons could also “be equipped either with conventional or special nuclear warheads.” He ended that noted statement by nonchalantly saying “naturally, we do not need that in fighting terrorists, and I hope we will never need it.

Sputnik News reported Turkish media raised concerns about the deployment of Russian military assets in vicinity of their borders, noting that “Russia sent 14 helicopters to Armenia and deployed them to the Erebuni Air Base near the capital Yerevan on December 8. Seven of these helicopters are armored Mi-24 attack helicopters and the others are Mi-8 model transport helicopters. The number of Mi-24 attack helicopters could reach 15 by the end of the year.”
Russia has also sent a submarine called the “Rostov-on-Don” to the Mediterranean Sea, where Russia also maintains a naval base in Tartus. The “Rostov-on-Don” has been equipped with Caliber cruise missiles, which Putin mentioned in the conversation with Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu could be armed with Nuclear warheads.
The Russian flotilla currently consists of two submarines, and the “Moskva” cruiser carrying an air defense systems similar to S-300 missiles to Eastern Mediterranean.

The Russians also imported their own air defense systems to the base, which include Pantsir-S1, Buk-M2, S-200, Pechora-2M and S-400 batteries. The electronic Krasukha platform, which jams radar-guided systems, is also active on Hmeymim.
