  • Ballistic missiles? Larger warheads? Fired at your enemies? So what? Most missiles fly a ballistic path. Bullets fly a ballistic path. This is war.

    • @bcspace Ballistic missiles are highly inaccurate. It is not the first choice one would use against rebels who by their very nature of fighting are spread out all over the place.

      There is a high possibility that these missiles targeted the hill 'Saur Grave' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savur-Mohyla). Note how far the huge clouds of dust are from the hill itself:

    • @Titantc 
      Yes they are quite inaccurate. So why is CNN breathlessly calling this an escalation? To get their sheep worked up and pretend to have credibility?
      LOL!

    • @Titantc Ukrainian government has already proven it has no problem slaughtering innocent civilians. I believe it is one of their goals to scare as many eastern Ukrainian civilians as possible into fleeing to Russia.

      This accomplishes several things:
      1. They can begin extracting as much shale as they need without facing a mob of demonstrators who do not want their wells, water and land polluted.

      2. With so many eastern Ukrainians gone, the voting power and political influence of eastern U More..

      also not a bad idea!

      Ok I will tell you why I care, I see similarities to these fucktard ruskies as to the Serb kunts back in the 90's - Similiar not same! and 2nd Majority of Slavs started off with ancestry from Karpathia which was much larger then than now so we have some ancestrial common goals and or family ties.
      I can go on and on about it but you get the point.

  • Short range balistic missiles == Artillery..
    Most artillery rockets are balistic..

  • Shorter range ballistic missiles stay within the Earth's atmosphere.

    so, what's the big deal? It's stronger than artillery but it's still just a missile.

    • @Punch_The_Monkey Sound scary. It's just under "nuclear bomb" and just above "dirty bomb" in terms of scariness.

      It's all about "sensationalism."
      This IS CNN after all. (I could have just said American media)

    • @sammwise94 They are Ukrainian missiles being fired on Ukrainian soil against separatists. The Ukrainian military is well within its rights to defend itself and keep their nation whole. How you translate this into America = Evil is idiotic. You should be ashamed of yourself for your stupidity.

  • 'These are not accurate systems' by the reporter, well actually they are. Stick to reporting without guessing next time. They are conventional arms, just like artillery.

    • @sammwise94 

      Arresting, torturing, and killing those who oppose Russia is okay?

      When the US used MLRS systems in Iraq in both wars, do you think they only killed soldiers. War is war, for some reason in the 21st century we seem to have lost track of the fact that in war many innocents die. There is no imaginary gentlemen's agreement as the morons who scream Geneva convention on here seem to think exists. People commit atrocities on both sides in the name of their cause.

      Its not nice, n More..

  • Oh no, not ballistic missiles! Striking targets that your fighter jets cant reach because of anti-air assets is exactly why these missiles exist!

    • @ChickenhawkTEX 

      These missiles were designed to target NATO airfields/supply depots/FOB's if the Cold War ever went hot. They only had to be "accurate enough". If the Ukies are using these weapons against cities, there's a major problem.

    • @Zivo  Hopefully they will hit Russian airfields, supply depots and FOB's! Your almost as sensational as the vid, no one mentioned these missile being directly at cities or the civilian population.

      Do you not know what "if" means?

      Try this other example:

      "If" the Ukies launch ballistic missiles at Russia, there will be Russian tanks parked in downtown Kiev by next week.

      Understand?

  • Interesting, John Kerry is now saying that Kiev wants a cease fire.

    The Ukies have been pushing hard to try to surround Donetsk and take Saur-Mogila over the last few days, and they failed to break through the Sep lines to achieve these objectives. If the Ukies actually felt that there was a realistic possibility of breaking the Cauldron and isolating Donetsk, they would have waited off on the ceasefire as it would have put the Seps at a significant disadvantage at the negotiating table.
