Jacob Kedmi is perplexed: Why did Russia not bomb the militant columns?

An Israeli political expert, the former head of the Nativ secret service, Yakov Kedmi, commented on yesterday’s statements by the Russian Defense Ministry about US support for ISIS militants. Kedmi wonders why Russia presented pictures of huge columns of militants leaving Abu Kemal, but did not try to destroy these columns, allowing the terrorists to leave. The expert recalls that we are talking about the militants of the so-called Islamic state, and not about the armed Syrian opposition.

    I absolutely agree with Kedmi on this issue: why didn’t the columns of militants break? They were so sure of safety that they did not even disguise themselves! What is it? The mistake of the bureaucratic machine or the fear of the striped?

      Because there are so-called zones of influence for which the USA is responsible and flights of aircraft strictly in these zones in order to avoid conflicts between Russia and the USA

    Peskov said at a press conference today that there are errors, and there’s nothing wrong with the fact that the RF Ministry of Defense is slipping linden.

      it’s okay that the RF Ministry of Defense is planting a linden, no

      I also think so, only linden needs to be done better - it was spread too quickly. there is still something to learn from the "helmets."

      So, in addition to this, it was said that Russian drones were "not allowed" into the zone by electronic warfare equipment. How then could show frames with cars? Or bomb without target designation?

      and what did he have to say? Lipo and the pentagon suval and nothing. There is another question. We blame the Americans for releasing ISIS, while they themselves did the same in essence.

    - He attacked himself - even let him fight back.

    The USA itself brought out terrorists - even let them get smashed with them ...
    In addition, the Russian Federation has a chance to back up its FI with regard to aiding terrorists from the United States with captured witnesses for the new Nuremberg. Why help the US destroy witnesses? smile

    Dear tractor driver, it is not for this that the Fashington macaques bring ISIS out of the fire of terrorists. The Kurds will take their place in the project to destroy Syria as a sovereign state. And they will transfer terrorists through Afghanistan to Central Asia. I would venture to suggest that the first victims will be the poor Tajikistan (drug trafficking) and Turkmenistan (gas and not only) Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan (if I am not mistaken, there were the main sources of uranium in the post-war USSR, and not only uranium, more hydrocarbons and much more, judging by textbook and atlas on economic geography for the 8th grade of my distant Soviet school childhood).

    Kedmi is a very smart guy. I often listen to his speeches. Our ministers need to take themselves as advisers: Solovyov to the Foreign Ministry to Lavrov, and Kedmi to Shoigu. bully Maybe ours will finally begin to act as a small but proud Israel laughing Sometimes it seems that our politicians do not believe in their own strength ... Everything looks like in ordinary life on the example of the situation on the street - One type and the other in the face or just morally humiliated, but she suffered the offended one tells passers-by that it is true and a villain someday it will be rewarded ... After all, he is right, and so on. So !!! ----- Tell me dear friends and just good people, that’s why I need to be right but patient? Maybe it's time to believe in your strengths and convey to others. In this situation, why listen to someone ... destroy, and then talk. There are no words at all with Donbass. How can you just look at these things. Yes, after the first week of shelling, Poroshenko would be taken from Kiev to Moscow to the COURT for legs tied to the tank tied. And the whole company of him ... Forgive me for having written so much)))) Well, it’s boiling, I swear. Ugh !!!

      For the "small and proud" - the United States. And Israel butts with Arabs mainly, which on a global scale - no one calls.
      The situation in the Russian Federation ... is somewhat different, don’t you?

      "The targets for the defeat were strongholds, clusters of manpower and armored vehicles of terrorists.
      Six Russian Tu-22M3 bombers launched a group air strike on ISIS * militants in the vicinity of the Syrian city of Abu Kemal. This was reported in the press service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

      It is noted that the targets for the defeat were strongholds, accumulations of manpower and armored vehicles of terrorists. "

        I think that the tactics are correct-1. showed the whole world that the US does not bomb ISIS. 2. They asked the United States to bomb, 3. They received a ridiculous answer that they would not bomb for ridiculous reasons 4. "Attention prepared?" as the respected Zadornov said. Now get it. And this is not looking at the position of the United States. Well, at least something pleases in foreign policy.

    He asked himself why they didn’t bomb, and he answered that it would be beneficial for the Americans to bomb the Ishilovites and not be able to talk about cooperation with the CIA. Like the United States, perhaps they wanted to strip their performers with Russian planes? Maybe this is the answer?

    I agree, you can’t be weak. Everyone begins to learn the weak, you don’t stand that way, you don’t sit like that, in short you are down, you are to blame and you owe a lot. But it’s a strange thing, as soon as you give the magical “pendal” (snickering cattle, oh ..... mu from your impunity, and frightening all the small fry) you immediately become smart, handsome, and so he needs it!
    PS Let's appreciate our friends, Russia (as history has shown) has only three friends: Army, Navy and ..... VKS !!! And to all the other "friends" we will say thanks (there are still many mistakes, but we are learning fast) for making us STRONGER! Thank you for teaching us to trade and not to give away, for understanding that there are no brothers forever, but there are opportunistic and economic interests (you will give), for the development of the agricultural industry, for the development of the military-industrial complex and industry, but the most important thing is that you teach not to rely on anyone and not on whom not to depend.

    Militants have previously been taken out of the cities of Syria. By destroying them at the exit of the city, they could get the hysteria of the West to destroy the militants, who supposedly "had already" surrendered to the western coalition. And the truth about the joint actions of the Ishilovites with the United States would disappear. Yes, here and in the media immediately there were all the same allegations (as a clue about the fate prepared for us) that the Ishilovites would be "met in the desert" anyway ... Such actions revealed the true "face" of the United States to its own Ishilovites. I respect Kedmi, but it’s worth adding that as smart as he is, he’s so cunning. Well ... as it befits to be a dual policy of a "dual" Israel ... Can anyone say for sure how many true funds the Israelis keep in the US? Does it mean anything?

    “Six long-range Tu-22M3 bombers, taking off from Russia, flying over Iran and Iraq, delivered a group air strike on IG * terrorists in the area of ​​the city of Abu Kamal,” the Defense Ministry reported to RIA Novosti.
    The goals of the aircraft this time were clusters of manpower, armored vehicles and strongholds of terrorists. Controls recorded the destruction of targets.
    Tu-22M3 aircraft operated under the cover of Su-30SM fighters from the Khmeimim airfield. After the bombing, the planes returned to Russia.

    Why? Yes, because this coalition gop team has done everything in the best tradition of exceptional, mixed militants among the peacekeeper and transports with weapons among the buses. Hit the column, you get the corpses of civilians and universal howl.

    In the DPR, Russian military advisers leave a very sad picture. In words and on the cards - the gods of war, and in many situations they are lost to trembling in the body. Absolutely do not want to take on any responsibility. For each sneeze, endless coordination begins. And the main behavior - it can somehow resolve itself. In Syria, a warrior is also likely to have such grief. Hence the miscalculations.
