Military Review

“Reserve trump card” of the USA against Moscow and Damascus enters the “Great Game”


Every day, the horizon of a global military-political junction at several local and regional theaters of operations is clearly visible, where the interests of the “Western axis” with its imperial ways and the Russian Federation, which on well-justified grounds of a superpower with sound strategic ambitions, clash states and peoples from the comprehensive absorption of an anti-Russian militarization ideology that carries blood and grief and destruction, regardless of whether What kind of dressing ”is the“ democratization ”of the new victim country? Undoubtedly, Donbass and South Ukraine can be considered the most “explosive” and unpredictable pre-escalation conditional TVDs, where Kiev, on the orders of the “big uncles” from the Pentagon and dragging Volcker, is preparing to launch another act of military aggression against the LDNR and subversive activities in the Republic of Crimea.

Indicators of such a gloomy development of events are the sabotage committed by 31 of October against the nodes of electricity and gas supply in the settlements in the vicinity of Alushta, as well as a multiple increase in the number of shelling of Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics. Obviously, these events are only the harbinger of the chaos that will erupt immediately on the eve of the presidential company 2018. It is during this period that the West will make numerous attempts to maximize the operational and strategic situation in the Donbas, in Transnistria and directly in Russia itself; and our main task is active proactive actions, which we will discuss in the following analytical reviews. Today we will return to the final phase of the Syrian company, where in the coming days there will be a fierce clash for the extreme southern Syrian stronghold of ISIL - the strategically important city of Abu Kemal.

Over the past two weeks, constantly updated information on the operational situation on the distant approaches to the city of Abu Kemal has not left the first positions for a second. news feeds of the most famous Russian, American and European news TV channels, as well as with enviable consistency appeared in the news sections of hundreds of military analytical publications. Such a lively interest in this area is not accidental. Immediately after the operational crossing of the Euphrates with access to its eastern bank in the Deir ez-Zor region, which was accompanied by fierce fire resistance from the IS and Kurdish YPG / YPJ units, as well as the liberation of a significant part of the city from pseudo-caliphate formations, the command of the Syrian Arab Army and the command the Russian group of forces in the SAR began to develop an offensive operation in the southern operational direction. At the same time, in connection with the probable difficulties of supplying the offensive "backbone" of the CAA with fuel, spare parts, provisions and fuels and lubricants by means of ground transport, it was decided to conduct an offensive "throw" along the western bank of the Euphrates River (on the eastern bank of the Euphrates, the CAA established limited control only on a small area territory around Deir ez-Zor).

During the offensive operation of the CAA assault units under the command of General Hassan Suheil, by October 15 and 2017, Meyadin and his environs were quickly and successfully liberated, and the southward attack continued. Moreover, the island of Saqr, on the r. Euphrates At this time, the “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF), represented mainly by Kurdish self-defense units, did not waste time in vain, and with the support of the Special Operations Forces and the USMC, which have direct channels of communication with ISIL, almost without resistance from the terrorists were able to take control of Al-Omar, the largest oil field in the republic, after which the SDS grouping continued the march towards the cities of Haraij and Khadzhin.

While the Kurdish units that had agreed with the terrorists had the opportunity to overcome several kilometers a day, the Syrian army units on the west bank of the Euphrates were literally bogged down in battles with the IG, the main fortifications of which are currently concentrated in a dense network of settlements around the cities of Al-Quray (Dar An-Nasrani, Wadi al-Havr and Al-Asharah). As a result, we have a not very pleasant operational tactical picture, where full forces and Washington-supported SDFs (in terms of an offensive on the southern IT) were able to outpace the exhausted CAA units by about 25 - 35 km. To see the fact of the arrangements between the SDF / US and ISIS is quite easy: you just need to look at the regularly updated maps of the Syrian theater of operations on the resource on October 24 and November November 1. Here you can see that in just a week the Kurds passed about 40 km, while the CAA did not pass and 10 - 15 km.

Also, 24 in October, 2017, the CAA units resumed offensive operations from Humaim in the eastern direction, thereby making the Western coalition understand that the CAA had a new strategic goal - the Syrian border town of Abu Kemal. After just 4 of the day, October 28, an international coalition led by the United States decided to act in advance. Ofpred coalition Colonel Ryan Dillon immediately announced an active offensive operation on the same city. It was from this moment that the active “race” began to establish control over Abu Kemal. The main official argument of the Americans and the SDF regarding the start of the operation was the presence in the southern city of the last and most important command and staff unit of the pseudo-caliphate in the SAR, the Syrian Arab Army is guided by a similar fact. Nevertheless, the real goals of establishing control over this city are much deeper. It is the party that will be the first to enter Abu Kemal that will later be able to more confidently dictate its conditions during the further redistribution of the republic’s territory. What is this about?

It would seem that the Al-Omar Kurds and the Americans skillfully and practically without loss received their own “juicy piece of tenderloin” in the form of an oil field. What they may need in Abu Kemal. We look at the map. The city is located on the west bank of the Euphrates River (on the territory controlled by the largest ISIS bridgehead currently, stretching from the banks of the Euphrates to the eastern part of the province of Homs). Currently, the SDF have many times more opportunities to advance the Syrian army in the attack on Abu Kemal (all the same channels of agreements between the US and the IG will be used). As long as the last strongholds of the resistance of the pseudochaliphate bought by the Americans restrain the CAA in the Al-Asharah region and east of Humaim, the Kurds with the Americans can force the Euphrates and take Abu Kemal without a fight. After that, the SDF / USA will have at its disposal vast territories of the Deir-ez-Zor and Homs provinces up to the eastern approaches to the city of Es-Sukhne. Here, the States can go on the usual tactical trick: by bribing and providing a calm life to the command link of the IS, to engage the terrorists in “punching up” the tactical “corridor” from Es-Sukhne in the direction of the territory controlled by the American KMP around At-Tanf military base.

Strange as it may sound, but having received all the necessary anti-tank and artillery weapons from the US, the terrorists, with possible Kurdish support, will only have to penetrate the 55-kilometer “corridor” in the south-western direction. After this, Washington can, with a calm conscience, “chop off” all the southern regions of the Syrian Arab Republic, including the Syrian-Jordanian and Syrian-Iraqi sections of the border. The fact is that the advanced assault units of the Syrian army and Hezbollah are currently concentrated south of Meyadin and in the area of ​​the settlement of Bactal, from where the capture into the tactical "ticks" of Abu Kemal takes place, while the sector of the front line in Es-Sukhne is not saturated with the proper number of defensive strongholds, which in the end can lead to a “breakthrough”.

To prevent the above scenario from becoming a reality, from yesterday, long-range Tu-22M3 long-range bombers escorted by super-maneuverable multi-purpose Su-30SM fighter planes, as well as 3M14K Caliber strategic cruise missiles launched 533 began to be actively used against ISIL fortifications north and west of Abu Kemal. mm torpedo tubes of a diesel-electric submarine B-268 "Veliky Novgorod" (pr. 636.3 "Varshavyanka"), which is in service with the Black Sea fleet. The importance of taking Abu Kemal can be clearly seen in the incredibly rapid change in the tactical situation both in the Baktal region and near Al-Asharah, where everything finally got off the ground thanks to the brilliant operation developed by General Suheil to oust the militants from the Euphrates; such speed was not observed even during the assault on Deir ez-Zor.

For - “what are you doing here?”, The article does not indicate that the given city (where everyone breaks down) is the point of the border crossing to Iraq, but in fact to Iran. If the Syrians manage to occupy it, and for their part, the Iraqis have already made their way to the border, then Iran will receive a ground crossing to the Mediterranean Sea and, in essence, will reach the borders of Israel. That's actually the whole "hysteria." Yes, these are not my words, but those whose opinion I trust. repeat

          All of these crazy distillation races, down the Euphrates, and the Kurds taking the largest oil fields, could have been avoided if the original plan had been realized - to force the Euphrates River in the Deir Ezzor region and block the further advance of the Kurds to the south. But, unfortunately, this plan failed. And the further development of events went just according to the American scenario.
          To take the gate to Iraq, now only extraordinary measures can help. Our military is capable of them. But how will the events of the coming days actually show.

        And they (USA) are cunning: they do not pronounce the word “separation” at all for “separation”. They silently help the Kurds, as well as all those who are “against Assad” ... And whether the Kurds will create their own state or not, they will, in principle, “like a drum”, recognize it as “autonomy from the tyranny of bloody Assad,” they will not figs with him. And as for Catalonia .... so there is no "bloody tyrant Assad" - there is a "white and fluffy Spain" -type means those that are torn from a pretty Spain-the separatists supported by Putin .... wink

          Syria, this is the control of petrodollar.

          Therefore, "Assad must leave."

          Most analysts in the US have already predicted the departure of the petrodollar.
          By the way, the departure of the petrodollar is also associated with the loss of control over the US government, the owners of the economic system.

      With the defeat of Igil, the Great Kurdistan project has already failed. This means that the Isilov’s gaskets between the remnants of neighboring countries in the form of independent territories are not foreseen on the Peters Map. And then what can the Kurds expect? Most likely, as they say "greed fraer killed." You can choke on too much. Turkey, Iran and Syria with Iraq will help to do this after stripping the bearded. The United States and Israel will not be able to resist them if they act together.

      no way. just pit Kurds with the Americans. we had very good teachers, we had to learn “best practices”. And when the amers begin to gnaw their necks and receive in response - the Kurds themselves will resort to Assad with a request for autonomy within Syria. There will be no Kurdish state in the coming years. No one is interested in him

          Well it is! This can be justified only by the need for training, or, most likely, in fact, by the insufficiency of the air group in Khmeimim. All the same could be done by the Su-34 and Su-24 with much lower costs.

            While it is possible to test weapons directly in a combat situation, this should definitely be used, because after the combat use in Syria, many of our new types of weapons showed flaws and on this basis changes and improvements were made to their design, because the fighting in Syria will not last forever and you have to have time to experience everything.

    Quite often I read this author. Interesting thoughts are in artistic form, but it is necessary to use the correct terminology when interpreting military topics. No operational directions. They are called "operating rooms." Each operational area has its own proper name for unambiguous identification by various people. Operational means to carry out an operation by a force grouping according to the composition of a close army (corps).

    Kurds "force the Euphrates." Since when did the Kurds have the technical means to force water barriers (and the Euphrates is not a stream in that area)? In general, no panic is needed. No one will force the Kurds and the Yankees Euphrates.

    About the Yankees in Syria. As soon as the last ISIS soldier is killed in Syria, the American troops in Syria will automatically become not the counterterrorism forces, but the aggressor troops, occupying DE-FACTO. They will rightfully be destroyed by the ATS. Not right away. At first they will warn. Then they will fly over. If at least one Syrian plane is shot down, they will begin to wet. On absolutely legal grounds. At the same time, the United States will not have a "counterterrorism" cover, as it is now. With all the ensuing consequences internationally. So the Yankees have no choice but to leave Syria. That's all...

    And the Kurds ... The Kurds have already gotten theirs for Syria in Iraq. And they will receive. In general, the Kurds as a nation gained nothing there as a result of the attack on the original Arab territories. They lost even more in Iraq than they gained in Syria. Moreover, they "took" in Syria - illegally.

    Overall, still to come. Hence the next squeals about Assad in the UN and the USA. But all this is pointless. The same with the Turks. They will also leave Syria after the victory over ISIS and Nusra and a peaceful settlement.

No US 6th fleet helped them in relations with Turkey or Saudi Arabia, which arrived at the reception to compete with Putin in Moscow and Sochi. In response, the US will simply be worn out like women, along with its 6th fleet, that's a bummer))) If they start direct aggression, they will be destroyed. While there was no direct aggression, while they covered themselves with ISIS. If you see “beauty” in this, then your notions of beauty are disfigured.

So far we only managed to do half the battle - as well as along the Kerch bridge and the Crimea as a whole.

      Yes. Only one amendment: no need to "crush" anyone. It is necessary and simple enough to break the illusion of the "beauty" of ugliness from global aggressors-globalists imposed on the whole world. Here, one nickname with a German flag admires the “beauty” of the process of how scum from the CIA, together with scum from the US Department of War, created a joint effort by ISIS and set him against Syria and Iraq. Great sorrow for millions of people. And these bastards are now hiding behind a cynical "fight" with this offspring of ISIS to fight the legitimate authorities of Syria and Iraq, now making the Kurds unhappy, using Kurdish inferiority complexes to fight the legitimate authorities of Syria and Iraq. And this man rejoices in the “beauty” of this cynical action, where tears, blood, pus were mixed. This man himself is seriously ill. Sick of a contagion that distorts the vision of normal people to the sight of scum. And then what needs to be done is to treat people by calling a spade a spade. But no one needs to be crushed.

      The scum who infected the world with the infection of the cynicism that is the meanest, seeing cynical lies, tears, blood and pus as "beauty", they do not need pressure. Pressure, war is just what they feed on, they feed on the hatred of their victims. These global scum with the whole system of lies, a system of unprecedented brainwashing, which they built, which makes the ugliness and death of Human civilization perceived as "beauty" and good - these scum need the truth, the right analysis. An analysis that calls lie a lie, ugliness is ugliness, and Human is human. And that’s all. Nothing more is needed on the Internet. Such behavior is enough for the scum and the system of lies created by them to collapse on their own. On the Internet, nothing more is needed.

    the massive use of missile and bomb strikes using the forces of strategic aviation and the Navy is now not excessive, except for the purely utilitarian function of suppressing ISIS resistance, it carries the educational function of intimidation in relation to pro-American and Turkish militants. Strength in the east is much more respected than boltology.
