Russia requires the United States to name targets in Syria and Iraq

66
Leading the offensive in Deir ez-Zor with the support of the Aerospace Forces, Syrian government forces faced the fact that, having lost their economic infrastructure, they continue to receive massive reinforcements from Iraq, where terrorists must have enough of their headaches because of the air strikes of the international coalition led by the United States .


However, in fact, as stated by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the coalition significantly reduced the number of air strikes against terrorists in western Iraq and, in fact, only imitates the fight against the "Islamic State" *. Meanwhile, the IG * continues to seize new territories in Iraq.

Russia requires the United States to name targets in Syria and Iraq


In this regard, the Russian military department demanded clarification from the US-led coalition: are the allies thus trying to complicate the operation of government troops in the province of Deir ez-Zor, or, as the Ministry of Defense ironically notes, they intentionally drive terrorists under the deadly blows of the Russian aviation?

According to Konashenkov, if we analyze the openly published statistics of the Pentagon on aviation departures in the framework of the fight against IS *, "you do not need to have profound knowledge of military affairs to see strange changes." Thus, the representative of the Ministry of Defense continues, with the beginning of the Syrian troops operation in Deir ez-Zor in September, an international coalition led by the United States sharply, to several times a day, reduced the intensity of attacks on ISIS * in Iraq, "having done almost five times less strikes than Syria. "

This reduction in the intensity of strikes in Iraq in a strange way coincided with the transfer of ISIL * to Deir ez-Zor from the border areas of Iraq by the large terrorist forces that are now trying to gain a foothold on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. The US-led coalition that imitates the fight against ISIS *, primarily in Iraq, sees all this, but continues to pursue an active struggle against ISIL * for some reason in Syria
- noted the representative of the department.

At the same time, the Major General notes, the release of Raqqa, now remaining deep in the rear, which the US and the coalition for half a year called the main priority of the fight against ISIL, has stopped.

The actions of the Pentagon and the coalition require, according to him, whether the change in priorities of the US and the coalition is to maximally complicate the operation of the Syrian army with the support of the VKS to liberate Syrian territory east of the Euphrates or the opportunity to free Iraq from terrorists, reports RIA News.

"Islamic State" * (IG *) is a terrorist group banned in Russia.

    The actions of the Pentagon and the coalition require, according to him, clarification as to whether such a change of priorities for the United States and the coalition is the desire to complicate the operation of the Syrian army as much as possible with the support of the Aerospace Forces to liberate Syrian territory east of the Euphrates or the opportunity to free Iraq from terrorists,

          Well, if you "miss" exactly the bull's-eye on the KP barmaley and their warehouses in the Yankees zone - this will affect the reputation of the Caliber only for the better.
          The question is opening the deployment of these objects in a foreign zone and further exploration immediately before the strike.
          So as not to beat from scratch.

      I think it’s easier. The United States and Iraq are beneficial for the terrorists to go to Syria themselves than to uproot them in battle. All the same, we with the USA are not full-fledged allies in the fight against ISIS, we are situational. Therefore, this behavior, although cynical, but pragmatic in terms of their goals and our current relationships. I do not welcome this. I believe that the United States should not behave this way and solve our problems at our expense, this is not an alliance, but a fact on the face. They take advantage of our successes so that militants transfer to Syria, expose Iraqi positions, which they are sure to be hit soon. By doing so, they will facilitate the future operations of the Iraqi army at our expense.

        What ???? The United States and the coalition explain to "deviating from the party line" WHERE and WITH WHOM they must fight! It’s not for this that the United States and its comrades created and supplied them to sit on Iraqi oil and land .. That’s all the fuss with ISIS mattresses, Israel, and others .. ISIS is their eastern PMCs with the attached mentality, that's why such overlays .. .

        And we cannot be allies of the Americans in the fight against ISIS. Because Americans have never fought ISIS. They only depicted the fight against ISIS, but in fact they created it, developed it and continue to support it. Without American support, ISIS would not have existed at all for a long time already. ISIS is a kind of foreign legion created by the American state to solve American state problems. And they perfectly decided - until 2015.
        And now we are not fighting ISIS in its purest form. If we fought simply with three divisions of terrorists, then those divisions would not exist long ago. We in Syria are fighting indirectly with the entire American coalition. But at the same time, we cannot directly strike at the Americans, even when two ISIS columns leave At-Tanf to strike at our rear (as it was the other day). Although the time will come - and let’s blow it.

            A little worse, but very decent. In Tomahawks, in addition to GPS, they also put IR GOS. That allows you to accurately punch the middle of the roofs of the bunkers for aircraft at the Syrian air base. In Caliber only inertial. She gives approximately 10 m KVO ideally. In practice, what was on the MO video was 10-15 m. Instead of hitting the center of the buildings, they hit the edge or near the walls.

          Decent accuracy. KVO - 10-15 m for those videos that showed. This is the maximum that can be squeezed out of the inertial method and GLONASS. To get to the centers of bunkers, like Tomahawks, you need a GOS.

          The USSR supported communist regimes and pro-communist revolutions (coups) around the world. The United States, for its part, acted in its own interests. And it worked. The rebels ran through the jungle, articles and caricatures were published in the media, and political information was on the world situation.
          And then Russia decided to become white and fluffy: "we won’t be like that anymore."
          “And we will!” Said the USA.

    As was already clear a few days ago, Syria’s connection with Iraq in the destruction of ISIS is obvious. It is also obvious that until the VKS take over Iraq, the Yankees will stop things in Syria, they are fighting for ISIS. The visit of the Iraqi official and the meeting with Assad suggests that the process of close coordination of the two countries in the CTO has begun. entering the videoconferencing system into Iraq is inevitable. Obviously, now our General Staff is simply spelling out in advance the basis for the introduction of the RF Armed Forces contingent in Iraq. There is no other option! The Yankees are becoming bolder and bolder, openly fighting for ISIS! It's time to hammer them in Iraq! It is also obvious that the legislative framework for the formation of the ground forces of the Russian Federation in Iraq, the attraction of foreigners there, is just for that, because the Iraqis have been demoralized for a long time and steadily ...

    As I said earlier, the next to clean up after Syria, our VKS will be Iraq, and after Libya. Everything is logical, otherwise there was no sense at all to get into Syria.

    Someone may not have a leader.
    Russia will determine with whom it will support and supports.
    This is a group of General Haftar.
    And as for firewood, this is not our divine mind.
    Let's see discuss.

    "Russia requires the United States to name goals in Syria and Iraq"
    The USA may demand the same from Russia. And then, after all, the Russian leadership said: "The fight against ISIS (prohibited in the Russian Federation) at distant approaches and no-no in ground operations!".
    But, the reality is not as claimed.
    And what to believe ?!

      on distant approaches and no-no in ground operations!

      So there are no ground operations by Russian forces. There are PMCs hired by Assad, there are special forces of the Russian Federation, which does not go on the attack, but conducts local special operations. Well, the pontoons built a bridge over the Euphrates and sappers mine the cities.
      But, the reality is not as claimed.

      Yes, it fully complies. 95% of operations are carried out by aviation and the navy with cruise missiles. What do you dislike about this approach? maybe the fact that the military police pulls warring in the corners to negotiate a ceasefire?

        Russian PMCs that do not have a legal right in the Russian Federation, but are fighting outside the Russian Federation and receiving awards in the Kremlin, what is this? For such matters in the United States, their president would no longer be the president, but a prisoner

          The so-called Russian PMCs are not Russian at all, because not registered in Russia. PMCs are prohibited by law in Russia. And for what they received awards in the Kremlin, nobody knows for sure.

    The US goal is the destruction of all major states, primarily those with the ability to impede the implementation of the program taught by the US administration.

    Ours demand from the Americans the impossible. There the Pentagon and the CIA have directly opposite goals. Some formally fight terrorism, while others cultivate it as they can for further utilization. And then the FBI is trying to rake the consequences.
    At the same time, the President and Congress also look at the situation from opposite positions, while the Israeli lobby simply buys separate decisions from various US authorities that have nothing to do with the US itself.

    Well done! Every day, new unpleasant questions to "partners" - let them spin! Regardless of the answer, the correctly asked question - already contains half (or more) of the answer.

    Russia requires the United States to name targets in Syria and Iraq

    But who then admits this and reveals classified information?
