Mattis: UN, "in fact", allowed us to enter the territory of Syria

34
Pentagon chief James Mattis said Monday that the UN had given permission to prosecute terrorists in Syria, reports TASS.




When asked by journalists whether the United States has legal grounds for deploying its troops in the territory of the Arab Republic, Mattis replied:

The UN, in fact, said that we can prosecute (the terrorists) of the "Islamic State" (IS, grouping is prohibited in Russia). And we are there (in Syria) to destroy them.


At the same time, the minister did not specify which “resolution” resolution the world organization is talking about.

He also said that the US military will not leave Syria until the situation in this country is resolved by diplomatic means.

Earlier, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad stated that “the US military presence in Syria is illegal and unacceptable,” since it was not approved by official Damascus.

        I have said more than once, and I will repeat it more than once: the USA behaves like a typical gopota from the gateway - they create lawlessness until they get into the smeller.

      And why not go to Moscow right away? There are many who came. True, Moscow stands and those who came in were reduced in size.

        And what, in fact, do we want?
        Now, if the UN headquarters were not located in New York, but (for example) on neutral territory or specially allocated (possibly disputed) islands, then American influence would not be so large-scale and strong. And if the UN had really relevant military formations to deter and withdraw the conflicting parties, then the reform issues (which the USA, NATO insist more on) would not be raised.
        This has already happened recently in world history. Remember the Former Yugoslavia. It was from there that the UN role began to decline, when NATO forces presented themselves as peacekeepers, humiliating the UN forces as unable to cope with the tasks.

          I support them on their islands. on Svalbard or (which you won’t do for the sake of the world) Shikotan. But better is Svalbard. Let the islands evolve. Welcome to NEW VASUKI.

      The president allowed. What about the UN? Who is the UN, we don’t know anyone with that name. There is no such thing in the White House.

    The UN, in effect, allowed

    It was you (United States) who so decided. The essence of international law and your completely opposite things.

      "The head of the Pentagon noted that the US military will be in Syria until a peaceful settlement of the situation" is a great idea !!! And what is stopping Russia, under the same pretext, from bringing troops into the territory of Donbass? smile.... that's when we will do the same and speak as arguments, too, that they too - their arrogance and arrogance will sharply decrease.

        Mattis let slip. We carefully read his answer: "The UN agreed that we, in principle we can pursue IS ". The keywords" in principle "and" harass ", which do not mean entering the territory of sovereign Syria on an ongoing basis, and moreover, the development of 13 military bases there (according to Erdogan). But we and Assad behave in this issue is toothless, and in the near future the presence in Syria of US and Turkish troops will become a key obstacle to a political settlement in this country.

    By all means, the Americans are climbing into Syria, well, where do they have a "permitting" UN resolution. Looks like they invented it for themselves.

    What, transvestites made their way to the Pentagon? And then such logical perversions are very reminiscent of the jokes from the section "Women's Logic": presented a book - considers a fool. So here: ISIS was condemned - allowed to enter.

    And who made the UN a political corpse? The Americans themselves did! They think that they are an exceptional nation. They can do everything and they do not give a damn about the UN. fool

    This is not serious! I take this opportunity to make an offer to the Pentagon. The Pentagon in the spirit of tolerance allowed military service to open gays. But there was a flaw, a flaw. Gays have to serve along with backward traditional co-workers who allow themselves to talk about women in the presence of gays, thus offending the feelings of gays. I propose to create separate units from buggers and lesbians. Imagine a script for Hollywood. A group of lesbians are sent to the Russian lair in the Donbass to fulfill a secret mission. But the enemy is cruel and treacherous. He caught one scout, threw her in a dungeon, and the execution should take place the next morning. A jailer enters and immediately falls in love, they run. Great, how tolerant.

    That's because liars, a more impudent nation (although it is doubtful to call the nation living in the USA) except Anglo-Saxons, there is still a search in the world! Nobody called them to Syria and did not give them the authority to bomb a sovereign country. And now the Middle East is tired of it and not only that, it seems they will withdraw their troops, as they once from Vietnam, having received a kick in the ass! But it doesn’t come out differently!

    Pentagon chief James Mattis said Monday that the UN has given permission to pursue terrorists in Syria,

    Mattis mixed up, the UN not only allowed the deployment of US troops in Syria, but also to bomb the peaceful cities of the Syrians, to supply thugs with weapons, to train them in the camps calling the peaceful opposition, to take barmels and families out of shelling
