Grenades they have the wrong system: the United States sent to Syria new batches of Romanian fakes

21
The American leadership plans to extend the United States military presence in Syria for at least another 12 months. According to the defense budget for 2018 signed by US President Donald Trump, the “moderate opposition” will receive from Washington weapon and military equipment on 393 million dollars - informs the American edition of Daily News.


Grenades they have the wrong system: the United States sent to Syria new batches of Romanian fakes


The document states that military aid will be provided to the "past selection of the Syrian opposition" (Vetted Syrian Opposition - Ed.). It is reported that 25 thousands of people have already undergone training under the sensitive control of the Pentagon, while by the end of next year this figure is planned to increase to 30 thousands. In addition to the 393 millions planned by Washington for the purchase of weapons, the “guarantor of world security” allocates 107 millions more for other expenses involving training of armed “oppositionists” (the total amount for 2018 year will be 500 millions).

As you know, in the Syrian Arab Republic there are at least 11 US military bases, among them the largest are objects in the area of ​​populated areas of El-Shaddadi in the province of Hasaka and Al-Tanf - US-occupied zone in southern Syria.

Sources report that additional reserves are now arriving in separate US training camps, including from the defeated ISIS terrorist group. In the future, the trained radical formations are planned to be used for an offensive against government forces in the south-eastern part of the country.

Returning to the defense budget signed by Trump, the prepared list of purchases for the “wards” is of no less interest. It should be noted that part of the millions allocated for the “moderate opposition” is planned to be spent on rocket launchers, anti-tank missile systems and other types of heavy weapons. In addition, the list includes 235 mortars, 3 thousands RPG – 7, one thousand AT – 4 grenade launchers or LNG – 9, 12 thousands of Kalashnikov assault rifles, and other Soviet and Russian engineers.

Earlier, the non-profit organization Center for the Study of Corruption and Organized Crime published an independent investigation, the results of which revealed that Washington had two main channels for obtaining Soviet boom arms and its further spread. The first of these is the Special Operations Command, which oversees all special activities in the US military, the second mediator is the little-known military research organization Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey. Among the main suppliers and manufacturers of military products are Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania and Ukraine.
Apparently, the decision to supply the rebels with Russian counterparts of weapons produced in Eastern Europe or those left over from the times of the USSR was not accidental by the Pentagon. Obviously, the use in combat of Polish, Romanian and other fakes, inferior in quality to the original, has one of the goals of undermining confidence in the Russian military-industrial complex and promoting the American military market.

It is also impossible to disregard the fact that in the event that the government forces intercept a regular batch of weapons supplied to the insurgents, it will be extremely difficult to prove the US involvement in these trophies.

It only remains to add that while a number of states are discussing issues related to a political settlement and the restoration of a country destroyed in almost 7 years of war, Washington cannot calm down and continues to arm opposition forces, which, in fact, do not differ much from terrorists .

One would like to quote President of Russia Vladimir Putin: “Are you normal people?”

    Very often recently quoted: "Are you normal people?". There are no normal people. There are interests. To quote Palmerston: “Therefore, I affirm that it is short-sighted to consider a country as an unchanging ally or an eternal enemy of England. We have no unchanging allies, we have no eternal enemies. Only our interests are unchanging and eternal, and our duty is to follow them.” .

        Most weapons will go SDF. And in their ranks, according to the most conservative estimates, up to 50 thousand fighters.

          Sibirbalt had something else in mind, namely, the recent scandal related to the preparation of the US "Syrian Free Army" fighters. When the mattresses went bankrupt over the fact that fighters trained with American money immediately after crossing the Syrian border joined the ranks of the Ishilovites, voicing the figure of 5 people who still joined the SSA. 500 million dollars were spent on their training. Given this "positive" experience, the Americans decided to pour another 500 million dollars. The output is one billion, which will be spent on "training and arming" the "democratic forces" with a dubious result. So the point is most likely not in training, but in the possibility of interested parties such as Senator McCain to cut a couple of hundreds of millions of dollars under the Syrian noise. The war is a convenient occasion for them to rob the American taxpayer.

          Dear Aron, if I am not mistaken, their number depends on the investments made in them — there are investments, the ranks are getting stronger, there are no investments — the rows are thinning. Well, during a force confrontation, their ranks thin out regardless of investments in the course of natural decline and desertion. So their numbers are such an oscillating variable.

    Doesn’t it matter whose weapons the militants receive, they will shoot ... The question is how to cut off these supplies.
    The question of quality is the second ... anyway, they will ruin or abandon upon retreat.

    393 million dollars
    Almost officially, the Americans allot almost 400 million to the opposition (read terrorists) and they don’t blow what they say about them. They said they would not leave Syria and would cling to it with everything they could. Maybe it's time to discard the division (at the initiative of the United States) of terrorists into bad and "good"? Wet, so everyone and without looking at the striped.

    It has long been, but strength and spirit are lacking.

    the second intermediary is Picatinny Arsenal, a little-known military research organization in New Jersey

    Very little known, yes ...

    And this is not exactly a “military research organization,” but the arsenal and the US Army Armament Research and Engineering Center — the United States Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center.

    Polish, Romanian and other fakes inferior in quality to the original,

    And what is the Romanian Kalash inferior to, for example, Chinese? Or even Russian? Just to fart in a puddle.

      There was no Chinese AK from Afghanistan. I remember that I shot one of one such and he began to give a poke at the third store. This despite the fact that I shot in short bursts. From Romanian shot in the Czech Republic. Better quality, but only due to the metal, which was supplied from the USSR. And as for ours, I can tell you that once at the shooting they could not understand why one soldier could not perform the UKS. Then he admitted that he often sat in the guard on the machine, adjusting instead of a bench. So the machine gun still fired even when the receiver was deformed and the barrel axis deviated by 2 centimeters. And I installed a sight from a grenade launcher on my AK-74M and easily hit target No. 2 at 500 meters.

    Sell!!! That is the main thing. It’s just that you can’t grab one sip anymore (the colonies remembered that they were older and more cultural than the metropolis), it’s hard to steal (competitors appeared, maybe the same predators)

    And it seems to me that everything is much simpler and more mundane repeat -This shitty weapon is much cheaper to buy, and the loot allocated has already been registered, that’s why a special agent in the Pentagon has a gesheftik

    This is partly good news if you look at it from a certain angle. Opponents of the current regime in Syria are consolidating within certain territories, are grouped together. And it’s all the more convenient to strike at this pile by sending them in a queue to the Sirat bridge. But for this, Assad must increase the combat effectiveness of his available forces. If the air of the Russian Federation will most likely help, then the ground part should be their smut. The information has arrived, the question is how will the parties to the conflict dispose of it ....
