Iraqi Golden Division bears losses near Mosul

43
According to Western media during an operation to free Iraqi Mosul on 19 in December, the anti-Igil coalition in street fighting lost around 5 thousands of soldiers killed, as well as 800 units of equipment (including 32 Abrams) and 21 drone.


Iraqi Golden Division bears losses near Mosul


During the assault, the “Golden Division” was heavily battered and drained of blood - the only unit in the Iraqi army, numbering in 35 thousand people, capable of effectively fighting the IG (the group is banned in the Russian Federation). During the 10 years, American instructors have been preparing the connection.

If the “Golden Division” is destroyed, Baghdad will remain completely defenseless against the new ISIS units, which will most likely appear, despite the capture of Mosul. “And there is no doubt that the 5 of thousands of NATO troops stationed in Iraq will be instantly evacuated, even if several hundred militants oppose them. So, it is logical to wait for a new round of even more brutal Sunni-Shiite massacres, ”writes svpressa.ru.



It is noted that the Iraqi government gathered more than 110 thousands of fighters near Mosul, including “60 thousands of soldiers and officers of the Iraqi army and police, 16 thousands of mobilization militias and 40 thousands of fighters of the Kurdish militia Peshmerga”. The Western Allies engaged about 5 thous. Military in the operation.

In October, the Pentagon suggested that Mosul was being defended to 5 by thousands of militants. However, later began to talk about 9-ti thousand. Moreover, according to eyewitnesses, the groups of terrorists are well prepared and consist mainly of local residents. The share of motley mercenaries in them is only about 10%.

According to the blogger who called himself Mosul Eye, the civilian population in the besieged city lives without food, water, electricity and heat. Earlier, the UN said that in December 2016 in Mosul killed about 926 civilians and injured 930.

        For 10 years, American instructors have been preparing the compound.

        If mattresses were prepared for them at the same prices as the "moderate" ones in Syria - think how much dough they sawed ... laughing

    The loss of soldiers of the Iraqi government army is regrettable.
    At the same time, I would like to recall the well-known saying: "Tell me who your friend is - and I will tell you who you are ..." ...
    This I mean, as the mattress makers taught them ("... American instructors have been preparing the compound for 10 years ..."), so they are fighting ...

      For centuries, the Anglo-Saxons have been working under the same scheme and many are still being carried out. It’s somewhere to fit in, divide, sow internal hostility and while this people destroys each other - to rob the country. It's a shame when they get paid for it.

      5 thousand - quite real killed and retired (wounded in the hospital).
      800 units - x / z, this is taking into account the Humvee and from the very beginning the company is quite.
      32 abrams is most likely since the beginning of the war. It’s just that they try to take photos of every abrams, and lately Black hasn’t shown a single fresh one. And in the pogrom at Bolnichka, the abrashka escaped, but the BMPs could not, so they burned the 14 BMPshek and a bunch of Humvee there, but zero Abrashek.

    It seems that the Americans are deliberately "merging" the combat-ready forces of Iraq so that they cannot resist the "barmaley" and extend their influence over the whole of Asia - not for this they created this monster. The next task after Iraq is Iran and Afghanistan with advancement to our Central Asia, and the maintenance of terrorism in Syria (without capturing significant territories). DAISH needs money: oil and drugs. They are slowly chopping off oil (except for Libya), there is still drugs - the Americans are not in vain developing shells with "bioseeds" - it is easier to plant poppy fields throughout Asia - straight from MLRS and aircraft ...
    Well, in terms of the tactics of warfare - where are the "shovels"? It's time to bury your stewardess...

      -Americans deliberately "drain" the combat-ready forces of Iraq,
      If the losses of the militants are 1500 people, then the loss ratio of 1: 3 for battles (especially in the conditions of the city) is not the worst option. And remember the Terrible ...
      And the rest is nothing new. The West ALWAYS fights to the last ... RUSSIAN, ARAB, Kurdish soldier ...
      And the same Turks are on hand.
      - Terrorist squads are well trained and are composed mainly of local residents.
      What is surprising are the Yankees, Shiites, Kurds (whom the neighbors considered savages as far back as the last century). For local Sunnis-ENEMIES.
      PS It seems that the tactics of street fighting in urban conditions are not considered by Western instructors ... there is "Scorched earth tactics".

      What nonsense. ISIS exponentially burns cigarette blocks on video, what the fuck is dope - or are they driving LSD there? Under the Taliban, drug production has declined many times! This is when the democratic Yankees helped pick them up, heroin convoys surged across the borders. They receive money from the sale of weapons, people and antiquaries, captured in the museum. Well, the population levied taxes. But it’s enchanting about drugs ... add alcohol to them and trade in pork

      that is, if you do not fight the barmalei, then they will not spread their influence?
      it’s quite logical and sad as it may be, but there are fighting going on and without losses on the one hand it will not work. especially in a city

            For two years to drive infantry through the deserts, which has no aircraft and limited heavy equipment ?! Hitler in a year conquered Europe with an almost equal enemy ... Well, or 08.08.08 - although they lost several planes, the advantage in aviation is a priori in all conflicts!
            That's why you can clear Syria in two months with the help of thousands of drums (and not stupid spying Eagles!) UAVs with rockets and 7,62TT machine guns - they simply must CONSTANTLY hang over the heads of the barmalei with re-interchange for refueling and replenishment of ammunition - this is the tactics of the winners. Well, to protect the liberated areas with the help of robotic wedges like Borov and machine-gun points based on the Trailer - all this is described in articles about Mosquito weapons.
            And it would come out cheaper and faster without any Kuz, Caliber, Tu-160, T-90 and others HOW it turned out useless trinkets. bully

              And how much time did the perfectly armed US troops with a huge amount of aircraft and other precision weapons drive through the desert of practically unarmed Arabs in Iraq? And drove, drove, even Fallujah took more than TWO times, but never forced them to peace.
              So there is nothing to blame for Iraqi troops several times weaker than the US troops.

    If you recall who is involved in military matters at the IS, you will have to remember that these are the former Iraqi military of Saddam Hussein. Those. in fact, the former Iraqi army is fighting the present. Only the former was taught in the USSR. This is also why IS is such a serious adversary on the battlefield.
