Military Review

Lies for good, terrorists as salvation

23



Shift from a sick head to a healthy one - in the blood of the American establishment. The victory of Damascus over the "Islamic State" does not give rest to Washington and gives rise to all new illogical conclusions. Some of them contradict each other. What do Western politicians seek when they gain arrogance not only to steal other people's merits, but also to accuse Russia of appropriating victory over the militants of the IG?

The absurd statements came back from the USA. Their author is once again the US military, or rather its head, James Mettis. According to him, the destruction of the militants of the “Islamic State” is an unfinished business, and reports of victory over a terrorist organization do not correspond to reality.

Just think that the other day about the defeat of a terrorist organization declared Donald Trump. The American leader, although he appropriated the merits of others to his own armed forces, seems to share the opinion of Moscow and its allies on the termination of the pseudo-caliphate. As they say, and thanks for that.

Everyone is accustomed to the tremendous ability of Western politicians to turn the situation upside down. The announcement by the military and political leadership of Russia about the defeat of ISIL in Syria and the departure of servicemen to Russia in connection with the fulfillment of the tasks set on the one hand caused predictable criticism of the West, on the other - was the reason for aggressive statements and accusations. Predictability lies in the expected US desire to justify its “honest” name in the eyes of the international community. That is, those taxpayers who, in fact, paid for the senseless and useless, in terms of the destruction of the militants, the presence of the American military in Syria. Not so long ago, the Pentagon represented by representative Eric Paekhon announced the achievements of the international coalition in Syria to the whole world, at the same time noting that "the Syrian regime and the Russian Federation did not demonstrate a serious approach or commitment to defeat the IS."

Representatives of individual countries of the Western coalition also did not stop at banal dithyrambs against themselves, and accused Russia of misappropriating someone else’s victory. The public speech of the French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, who considers Deir-ez-Zor’s release “belated”, is still fresh in the memory, and Russia's victory unjustified.

Perhaps the above lies do not deserve due attention (in Syria, they know who actually defeated the igilovskie rabble), if it were not for the attempts of American friends and others like them to revive the terrorist army. This scenario is now being actively implemented at military bases near the settlements of Al-Tanf and Jisr al-Shaddadi thanks to the efforts of instructors from the United States, Great Britain, Norway, Jordan and the special services of other countries.

It is noteworthy that if earlier militants of “moderate opposition” acted as trainees, now, according to media reports, military trainings are held with IS terrorists who were evacuated from Raqqa or who fled after the “late” release of Deir ez-Zor or Abu Kemal.

But the head of the Pentagon prefers to keep silent about these terrorists as soon as it comes to the remaining igilovtsy in Syria. Maybe because now the deserters of the IG are ready to fight under the banner of the “New Syrian Army” and are not considered igilovtsami? Or because yesterday’s thugs are ready to defend Washington’s interests in overthrowing Assad?

In any case, the defeat of ISIL, the deprivation of its power in the areas under its control and access to oil sources, not to mention its combat power, is an indisputable fact. As well as the statement that the merit in the destruction of the militants belongs to the Russian AIF and the Syrian government army, not the international coalition.

Rewriting the same stories, which the West has been practicing since the end of the Second World War, testifies to Washington's helplessness in establishing its own orders on the territory of a foreign country. Perhaps in the US they yearned for past glory: after all, Russia's intervention excluded the possibility of the Iraqi or Libyan scenario in Syria.

    .... if not for the attempts of American friends and others like them to revive the terrorist army. This scenario is being actively implemented today at military bases near the villages of Et-Tanf and Jisr al-Shaddadi thanks to the efforts of instructors from the USA, Great Britain, Norway, Jordan and special services of other countries.

    This “music” will be eternal, if not the sponsoring states themselves! negative Leave countries, and destroy states as a system !!! yes

    Until the Americans rake in the first number in Syria (as in Vietnam), and everything goes to this, they will continue to lie, blame Assad Russia, Iran and prepare the next wave of barmaley. request

      And what is stopping them is to do as in Afghanistan. strengthen several bases, at important points, and sit there, without getting out, wreak havoc and death, through the uninhabited ISIS and Al-Qaeda, So they can sit for 10 years

    The author gives out wishful thinking. "ISIS defeat" is not at all a fact. They lost some territories, but did not disappear from these territories. Just went underground.
    The EMNIP Western coalition delivered as many blows as the Russian Air Force, but it is simply not true to say that the “victory” (which is not yet available) belongs to only one of the parties.

    We will wait a year or two and it will be seen what kind of "victory" it is. hi

      Professor, it’s even inconvenient to somehow remind you that victory consists in occupying enemy territory with infantry, and air strikes can only hasten this (or interfere)

        You would be right if it was not about a terrorist organization, but about the state. Israel occupied the territory of Gaza for many years not only with infantry but also with settlers. Did it help defeat Hamas terrorists?

            Wasn’t, wasn’t, and it stopped? I remind you that the Islamic State was de facto in Iraq and it was the bourgeoisie who ceased to exist there. So what victory are we talking about?

            I'm already tired of repeating that IG is an ideology. Her bombs and tanks can not be defeated. No one can defeat her by force. The only option is to provide an alternative. Neither you, nor the bourgeoisie nor the Asad are capable of this. Therefore, in the foreseeable future, the IG is not victorious. Unfortunately.

      Well, in the absence of air strikes, ISIS locally repulses settlements on the right bank of the Euphrates, it is already clear that the “victory” is a purely pre-election event, until the victory there is not so close

        Do you think air strikes are cheap and will go on forever? Once again, until an alternative is presented to IG not to defeat him.

          Any war is finite, if it has a non-commercial goal, during the Great Patriotic War there was also an ideological opponent, however, the goal of victory was not the same as now

    According to him, the destruction of the militants of the “Islamic State” is incomplete, and reports of a victory over a terrorist organization are not true.

    And why in this phrase is "not true"? The absolute truth is that the IG is not destroyed, and the Americans are intensively reviving and feeding it, and therefore they know much more about the true situation with the IG, the rest. In addition, the IG is not only in Syria, but also in Africa and other places where there are its fighters. Look, recently the IS cell in St. Petersburg was liquidated, and you think it is there alone? In fact, according to the "charter" of the IG is a state where there is at least one member who has sworn allegiance to this state ....

    Shifting from sick to healthy - in the blood of the American establishment.

    And then, according to Goebbels, everything is public:

    "A lie repeated a thousand times becomes true."

    To the amazing ability of Western politicians to turn the situation upside down

    This has already become the national policy of the United States. Therefore, day after day the statement is all "cooler" and frankly dumber.

    There cannot be a terrorist organization armed with ATGM, tanks, artillery, cars. And if there are headquarters, communication centers, reconnaissance, rear areas for rest and reformation, this is an ARMY! You can call it hired, religious, rebel, liberating, predatory, but this is the army.

      Maybe even in Iraq we got hold of this, well, and the trophies of the current period, for example, they took Palmyra and could not take everything away, like even the T-90 was captured

    The rewriting of the history that the West has practiced since the end of World War II indicates Washington's helplessness

    Firstly, they systematically rewrite history brilliantly, however, as always, for several centuries. So there is no need to talk about any helplessness. Only about cunning, deceit and resourcefulness. But they have a result.
    Secondly, the Russian authorities help them with amazing enthusiasm in their practice! Starting from the Gorbatomechen and Ebnov shobla and ending with Putin’s encirclement, this is largely the merit of our punks in power.

    For me, the main thing is that Russia in the international arena has ceased to be inactive. The West, as an adversary, finally appeared before our eyes, masks were ripped off and, horror, such a colossus works against Russia, but their principle is a) to deny everything!, B) to disagree! and c) - to blame! become understandable. I believe that we saw this enemy, and earlier we only suspected and believed him a lie. Now it is necessary to learn to fight with him in all areas: worldview, historical, ideological, gene (alcohol, drugs ...) and the military.
    Nothing, not for the first time. And I agree with the traitors in our government and I am familiar with this phenomenon in the first Chechen one.
