Why is the US leaving its troops in Syria, while Russia is withdrawing?

50
Washington has no plans to withdraw its troops from the territory of Syria, despite the fact that Moscow has already begun to withdraw its contingent from this country, reports Interfax statement by White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders.




At the next briefing, journalists asked her why the US still had to fight terrorists in Syria on the ground, while Russia announced the withdrawal of its troops.

The United States will continue to move forward and ensure that everything possible is being done to defeat ISIS (the IG, the group is banned in the Russian Federation) on all fronts and, of course, to protect the lives of Americans

- replied the representative of the White House.

Until the last member of ISIL leaves (Syria), we want to continue to move forward and ensure that it (the terrorist movement) is not only eradicated, but also so that they (militants) will not soon turn around and return to Syria.


As the Neue Zürcher Zeitung edition noted today, Moscow’s decision on partial withdrawal of troops is intended to “reduce the costs of intervention in Syria”.

According to the author, the victory of Russia is lacking "and the brilliance and stability." Success seems to be unsustainable, because Syria is very far from peace, and there is not enough money to restore the country.

He (Putin) is aware of doubts among the people about the risky operation in Syria. Therefore, a partial withdrawal of troops will cause relief, and it can be linked to the patriotic slogan that under Putin, Russia has once again become a victorious and influential superpower.

- writes the edition.

    That is, this is a direct statement that the occupiers intend to expand the zone of occupation and spit on them all? Okameli in the region already.

      The main thing is that these vile, boorish faces of their bases are not founded there, otherwise you slowly seem to be not noticeably looking, but they already staked out a plot, try to drive them out later. Don’t feed with bread, but give yourself the victory to ascribe this. They learned to do it well with the Second World War.

        And what is strange then? In my opinion, this event was expected, many analysts said that Putin would end the war in Syria before the end of the year (the same Yakov Kedmi, whom I respect) and others seemed to be .... well, we must not forget that there will be elections in 2018 , the points of view and strata of the population are different, and such a step will allow, on the one hand, to relieve tension in society, because after all, not everyone shares the same position, well, declare victory and add votes, also as part of the election campaign. Well, the real combat situation contributes to this: ISIS territory is no longer there, but we do not plan to fight the Western coalition led by the USA, the moderates are also under the wing of our "partners" + there are safe zones and others ....

          At the same time, how such a conclusion will not happen ... good

          And about the end of the war in Syria before the end of the year ... this is not serious ... no, of course you can say (as our military did more than once), but the war does not stop for some reason ... by the way, there were no less terrorists after statements ..

          But Yakov Kedmi - well done guy - appeared as an expert on Russian TV - they don’t smell like money, he’s not all running around with weapons, you can make money with his tongue.

            And why do you think that will not happen? Enough statements have been made, the Ministry of Defense has also announced some plans for the withdrawal, and said who will be withdrawn, and Putin said at a meeting with our servicemen that it was time to go home. There is no need to look for cunning plans, of course, they will leave some part of the military for the operation of the bases, but no more .... and it was stated that our military would not take part in the hostilities, but would monitor the observance of the ceasefire.

                What's the point? Withdraw your strength to return back? And with whom will our military fight with the United States and moderate opposition under their umbrella, or with the Kurds? Understand the process decided to transfer to diplomatic channels, and there is no need here to look for what is not.

                  The statement on the withdrawal of Russian troops from Syria has created a new situation for all parties involved in the Syrian peace process in Geneva. Initially, it was believed that it was thanks to the Russian military presence that the Geneva talks went according to the rules of Moscow. Now, for the interests of Russia in Geneva, it is not the planes that begin to answer, but the diplomats.

                    There was a different situation. Ours made concessions to the United States, and at that moment Trump had not yet assumed office, and ours hoped to find points for cooperation with such a beautiful gesture, and ISIS controlled a significant territory .... now Trump is not ours, and ISIS does not exist, fight with the Western coalition (the opposition, the Kurds and all sorts of garbage under the umbrella of the United States) - this is not a task, finish.

                    Yes, the Americans wanted to spit on our opinion (to be completely honest), they say so bluntly and are not going to leave Syria. And the fact that our military will be at war with the United States in Syria, or with the Kurds, or with the opposition for which the US aircraft attacked the ATS army and agreed with us on safe zones, so this is fantastic. If we start exchanging blows with the United States, it will end in a very big mess that no one needs, we won’t fight 100% with the Kurds either, and the opposition will not let us destroy the United States .... of course there are patriots who believe the opposite, but the point is persuade them? The GDP and the Ministry of Defense have all said what they wanted.
