The media reported on the number of US military contingent in Syria

45
Information Agency Reuters announces the readiness of the Pentagon to disclose the number of US military forces in Syria. In this case, the message stated that the data will appear after using the "updated counting system". Earlier, the US Department of Defense stated that the number of US troops in the SAR does not exceed 503 people.


The news agency reports: after the application of the “new calculation system”, it turns out that the number of representatives of the American military contingent is about 2 thousand.

The media reported on the number of US military contingent in Syria


Recall that earlier, in fact, the exact number of American soldiers and officers in Syria was officially announced by Ankara. Turkish media also published material on all US military bases located in Syria. It was noted that in addition to the regular military personnel in the SAR there are representatives of private military companies from the United States of America. The largest number of them is located in the Syrian province of Hasek. Also, a large American base is located near the town of Al-Tanf a few km from the border with Jordan. Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that it was at this military base that ISIS militants were active (* prohibited in the Russian Federation), which can be trained by American military instructors.

    And the composition of the units ... who are ... what tasks? and their support by aviation ... logistics ... explored? ... more questions than answers ...
    and most importantly, on what basis are they located in Syria.

        any shot at Americans in Syria by ASADA troops in this case will be legal from the point of view of international law ... the main thing is not to be afraid to protect your country from this lawless person.

            What international law can be discussed if the United States leads a coalition of 64 countries in the region ..? Assad for them is just an “evil tyrant” and they are not going to report to them, to anyone else about the size of their military contingents and their military plans. I understand that this is simply outrageous, but such is the reality.

            For the United States, this would be a very convenient pretext for starting a broad military campaign against the Asadites. Iran will not protect them in this case, ours will also withdraw (remember the strike of the Kyrgyz Republic on the airfield). As a result, they will burn down already weakened aircraft and may even start to drag with air in important directions. And under the guise in these directions gangs are activated. Well, and who will benefit more from such protection from the lawlessness? The lawlessness himself.

              Well, I'm sorry ... Napoleon and Hitler also led an international coalition (mainly from European countries), but that did not stop our people from putting them in their pants ... there would be a desire to kick the aggressor.
              And then the number of participants in this coalition does not mean quality ... and an automatic victory in the campaign against SYRIA.

              And how many corpses are the mattresses ready to take home? I repeat, Assad "suddenly" may appear in excess of modern weapons up to cruise missiles. You can conclude an agreement with him on military assistance and how mattresses in Europe "begin to conduct exercises on the use of nuclear weapons" !! bully

    Most importantly, the Americans were unable to “stake out” the largest oil sites in Syria, which they were so eager for. These areas are already under the full control of the SA. They now have one option to stay in Syria, to cling to the Kurds, but this is a clear break in relations with Turkey. Most likely, the US will have to get out of Syria and scream to the whole world that they defeated ISIS.

      The bulk of the Euphrates oil is in those Kurdish clans that the Americans sponsor. Here's a hike for the desert oil in Homs - there it ended in a feil. Mainly due to the incapacity of the southern broads, whom the blacks defeated and robbed them of everything that was.

    Americans and in arithmetic ahead of the rest. When they counted in American it did not exceed 503 people, but as they calculated according to the laws of arithmetic, about 2 thousand at once. So what arithmetic rules should be applied - classical or American?

      "About 2 thousand" is without PMCs, as I understand it, because they do not belong to the military contingent, and the article explicitly says so. Thus, you can safely multiply by 2, at least.

    And what is the size of the Russian contingent?

          No, with the "Satan" bust. For the elimination of the United States, however, was developed. There TTX well, very scary, just apocalyptic. And, we still have to go around Syria (visa-free travel in the future) and invest (investments).

        Who is the "wing"? If you are about the Air Force and AA of the Russian Federation, then the number, to put it mildly, is not enough. Still required quality, rear and combat support. But the main thing is political will, which binds hands or vice versa.

      Assad needs to voice the problem at the United Nations, even if it is supported by Brazil and Vanuatu, but the Russian Federation is also necessary - it needs to be publicized as widely as possible, then artillery raid on US bases, you can "run into" the infantry, only they will take off to answer - to work out air defense . There is, as it were, no reason for war, but to remain no longer camilpho.

    No, to roll out these American US bases to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and say, the USA was there illegally and occupied Syria, as it is. And if the United States rushes to Syria, it will destroy the United States. already. and they are impudent. Generally, fucked up.
