    I must admit the barmaley will have a stronger fighting spirit

      I’m interested in something else: what is our intelligence doing? sleeps or what? For any offensive action is impossible without a concentration of forces and means ... And the concentration of forces and means of the barmalei is an excellent reason for the departure of our air forces ...

        it also surprises me, it feels like our aircraft are blind at night, and the militants make all movements at night

        In general, the Syrians should fight - this is their country, and we must help them, and not fight instead of them. We already do for them everything that is possible and even superfluous .... And we have been doing this for decades, since the days of the USSR, including on the line of the Ministry of Defense ... I had a chance to familiarize myself with this a bit in due time in Latakia ...
        It seems that Shoigu hastened to announce the “actual end” of the civil war in Syria - in addition to the mercenaries in the ranks of the Islamists, not aliens are fighting, but Syrian citizens and the air strikes alone and the provision of intelligence will not solve the problem .... The situation there is more complicated and confusing than it might seem first glance, do not wishful thinking ....

        Their forces are already in a very small territory, allowing them to quickly transfer, concentrate and disperse their forces within an hour or two. Before death, the "rat" rushes with special fury.

    Syria is no longer interesting, Korea (for example) is on the way.
    This is where intelligence and analysts from all countries look.

    Well, our aviation is not omnipotent, and see how many planes are currently at the base, the Syrians themselves click all these ambushes, the gouging of the Arabs in the blood, examples of wars with Israel are an indicator of that ... we already help them as much as possible and if it weren’t for our VKS SYRIA ALREADY AS A NORMAL MORE OR LESS STATE
