In the US, do not rule out an increase in military contingent in Syria

60
Washington can increase the presence of American troops in Syria in order to "maintain the pace" of the attack on Raka - the "capital" of the Islamic State group (banned in the Russian Federation) in Syria, reports Newspaper.ru with reference to the head of the command of US troops in the Middle East, Joseph. Votel.

In the US, do not rule out an increase in military contingent in Syria


When asked by a journalist if the Pentagon plans to send additional units to Syria, Votel replied: "Maybe."

Our troops in Syria do not have sufficient mobility, sufficient firepower, so we must be ready to fill in some of these gaps, which may include additional fire support,
he specified.

At the same time, the General noted that he “does not intend to wait until they collect and train the necessary number of Arab recruits to release Raqqi”.

Earlier, the head of the Russian military department, Sergei Shoigu, said that Russia and the United States could start restoring bilateral cooperation with a joint fight against the militants in Syria.

    That's right, the USA, as always, after the Russian bulldozer, is trying to come. It was the same during the Second World War. The losses are minimal, but they are bargaining territories right there!

      The right words! hi They want to keep up with the distribution of medals and the sharing of nishtyakov. Here they just forget the mattresses again - Russia was invited by the legally elected President of Syria! And you pinned yourself, without invitation. But as always ...

          It is time to impose sanctions against the United States for the occupation of Syria, to name them Tehran-2, the countries of the guarantor of Russia and Iran, and they will act until ISIS after the United States voluntarily leaves Syria. The first point is the transfer of the border of all Syria to the control of the legitimate authorities, and only after that the elections .... We need to learn from the pi_ndos in this regard. So they are fighting on the side of ISIS and there is no need to prove it, the United States supports the Separs and there are regular troops .This is not even ala Donbass ...

Let them see the past hybrid war as flowers. The berries are just ahead. We should not justify ourselves, but turn the situation in the opposite direction by analogy with Ukraine in their execution. With such a trump card you can make a good game .... Such a raise stink .... Our guys are not in vain shed blood in Syria. .. Charge to the fullest, correctly using all means. Our cause is right ....

              You are completely right, dear!
              Sorry, I don’t know how to call you by name.
              But do not forget one "BUT" ... To impose sanctions against the United States for the Looting and Destruction of Syria to please Israel, Russia needs to be an INDEPENDENT, SELF-SUFFICIENT Country!

              And starting from 90's to the present moment, ALL money, home, yachts, wives, lovers and children our oligarchs and bankers are in the West and in the United States themselves !?
              After all, even Sberbank under the guidance of successful financial guru G. Gref, in Crimea for 2 of the year did not open a single branch, only works through "other structures" so as not to lose the possibility of financial loans in Western banks !?
              So do not be offended by this "my non-patriotic retreat / clarification", but the world ALREADY HAVE ALREADY HUNDREDS OF MONEY (money, grandmother)!
              And ideas and patriotic cries of power to the people are only for people who are trusting, naive and honest!
              And do not accept this my last offer, as a mockery to all of us patriots, including me, of course, alas, ONLY ONLY A STATEMENT OF THE FACT of the real conditions of life and existence of the state Russian, and many others around the globe ...
              We all would like to see a lot of patriots and rejoice at the successes of Great Russia, but alas, "the blinkers from Gorbachev, Yeltsin and Putin" are not allowed yet.
              But for a bright future for the country and people, it’s worth considering and not giving up, maybe a statesman equal to Stalin will appear in Russia, from Russian patriots, honest and not greedy people for power and money!

              Once again today, I congratulate all members of the forum without distinction in ranks, higher educational institutions and years of service,
              With a great holiday 23 February, Day of the Soviet Army, Aviation and Navy!

                  I myself write on my own opinion and often I am not in the stream of discussion, especially I am "past by patriotism."
                  Because life (56let) taught me do not listen to words and patriotic calls from above, shouting "Hurray!" but to evaluate the result through the Ennoe number of years, for the people and for citizens (since the sons and servants of the people, both before and today, took care of themselves in the first place).
                  In addition, if you ask yourself simple questions like:
                  - And why?
                  - Who benefits from this?
                  - What if?,

                  then having received the ANSWERS, you have a blind faith in the calls and cries of power without REAL RESULTS, disappear like alcohol vapor ...
                  Sorry if my answer didn’t sound cheers-patriotic, but honestly and essentially.

                  And yet, if you do not deign to call yourself, do not blame me, I will not answer you anymore, "secret agents" and "profi without a name", as I do not respect and do not believe them.

          Maybe I'm wrong, but IMHO is the preparation for tearing Syria into small protectorates (Turkish, American, Emirate, French, and there are 60 more names by the number of coalition members). Space for Assad, Russia and Iran is not provided there. The American vulture is always the first to come to the "carrion". yes

            Why are you joining the "army" of Ludwig Svoboda - a small unit of the Red Army of the USSR, staffed by several thousand Czech and Slovak anti-fascist volunteers?

            The remaining millions of Czechs and Slovaks with shock labor strengthened the defenses of the Third Reich, and the Slovaks also guarded the rear of the Wehrmacht.

            The fact that Slovakia at the end of the war went over to the side of the victors, and the inhabitants of Prague turned to the Red Army on the radio to liberate the city from the Germans instead, perfectly demonstrates the rotten essence of the inhabitants of the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

                The thing is different - the Czech Republic and Slovakia, despite their small size, have real merits in the fight against the anti-Hitler coalition on the side of the Third Reich in World War II.

                These merits outweighed by several orders of magnitude the contribution to the victory over the Third Reich of the few Czech volunteers and Slovaks who fought as part of the USSR Red Army.

Now, even if we all leave and leave, Syria will not fall under anyone completely, these are not the same people who two years ago, they do not have enough deliverance, they need the liberation and blood of the enemy. They know that they are not alone, they already know what victory is. And it is worth a lot.
        After all, we don’t even fight “for someone”, we don’t teach how to move tanks on the map, we teach how to be a people, a single victorious people! Look at LDNR. Can they be broken? Hardly ... They were born victorious, and we will teach the Syrians this, and they will never bend their backs before anyone else.

      And before the blue rows
      His warlike squads,
      Insufferable faithful servants,
      In a rocking chair, pale, motionless,
      Suffering a wound, Charles appeared.
      Leaders of the hero followed him.
      He quietly plunged into thought.
      Embarrassed look
      Unusual excitement.
      It seemed that Carla was bringing
      A welcome battle in perplexity ...
      Suddenly a weak hand crazy
      He moved the regiments to the Russians.

      And with them the royal squads
      Converged in smoke among the plain:
      And the battle broke out, the battle of Poltava!
      In the fire, under the hail of red-hot,
      The wall is lively,
      Above the fallen system is a fresh formation
      He is closing his bayonets. A heavy cloud
      Detachments of cavalry bat,
      Brazd, saber sound,
      Shattering, they break from the shoulder.
      Throwing piles of bodies on a pile,
      Balls of cast iron everywhere
      Between them they jump,
      The ashes are digging and hissing in the blood.
      Swede, Russian - tunic, chop, cut.
      Drum drum, clicks, grinding,
      The thunder of cannon, the tramping, neighing, moaning,
      And death and hell from all sides.

            Oh, don’t do it funny. "Turks raped." Yes, and then raped? If raped - a criterion of reasonableness (well, at least so), we have nothing to talk about with them. Bolts let the gorillas in the zoo measure.

    Nothing, they decided to increase their contingent in the territory of a sovereign state. Have you agreed with his leadership? And where, interestingly, is the indignation of the world community?

      Damascus is not a permanent member of the Security Council. Therefore, they do not listen to them. Eh, even though we put the Chinese there, the score was 3: 2, it will not be enough. So it's not evening yet, let's wait.

    It is clear that now they just divide Syria, no one wants to fight against the Ishil. Otherwise, how to explain that Turkey, Russia, Iran, Syria for almost 3 years can not take one city. Having the most modern weapons.

    Well, then they will start demanding to divide the country into zones of responsibility and so on.

    Keeping pace? What is this? How's Mosul? Oh well....
    The mattresses see that in Syria it is possible to rip off at the end of a banquet - that’s why they’re climbing. However, as usual. They come to an end and explain that without them - well, nothing ....
