Jacob Kedmi: Russia is severely pierced in Syria

78
Russian airbase Hamim under attack. On the very eve of the new year, December 31, the object came under fire. According to official data of the Ministry of Defense, two servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation were killed. Also received damage to combat aircraft. Initial information about the allegedly destroyed Su-24 and Su-35 aircraft turned out to be false.


In the evening of January 6, a second attempt was made to attack the base. According to a number of media reports, the Russian air defense system recorded unidentified flying objects and opened fire on them. It is assumed that these were quadcopters of terrorists with low-power hanging bombs, the type of those that are massively used in Iraq.

The militants began to show their activity in close proximity to the Khmeimim airbase at the end of December last year. Then, on December 27, the Pantsir-С1 complex shot down two Grad missiles as they approached the base.

          The task of those who attacked the base was not to harm, and then to drag us into a full-scale war and they did it at 5 + ... Already in Syria, a contingent of our troops at the level of 50 thousand troops with a replacement of course, Russia got into it there, to the ears of our hearts, this war will destroy our own economy further and we won’t get out of there, like Afghanistan, which multiplied the Soviet economy by 0 and, as a result, the collapse of the country, everything was done professionally, as the United States provoked us to send troops to And so Afghanistan, a classic of the collapse of the enemy: the strengthening of sanctions, the destruction of the banking system + the exhaustion of resources through the war in Syria, is now dragged into Sudan and we are also climbing into Libya - but we have a gut with resources! Boy’s comments - we’ll punish him cruelly — they’ll kill a couple of spirits there and nothing will change, starting from 2015, we are putting more and more of the classic of the genre there and more .. What a short-sighted team of rulers is sitting in the Kremlin .. knows nothing what is the Muslim world .. Now the States will pull Iraq out of hostilities, destabilize the country's internal situation, and the Red Army will be forced to send troops into Syria in the full sense of the word - some 100 permanent troops, but it won’t come out ... Victory is fake and political defeat in the international arena

            We, too, began to print money (extra): 200 rubles and 2000 rubles. So there is no need to cry.
            And there will be enough ammunition stocks for another 10 years (those that should have been disposed of). And nobody will ever stop the military-industrial complex factories and will launch shells and bombs in peacetime, and test them at landfills (and why is Syria not a landfill?). Military costs are always budgeted (i.e., in reality) ... just something 46 billion. Bucks. In the US 720 billion. They will tear faster.

      Yeah, the Americans in Vietnam, too, were safe ...
      According to US official data, only the US armed forces (excluding the armed forces of South Vietnam) from 1962 to 1973 lost their lives in Vietnam on earth only from mortar, artillery and rocket attacks (without taking into account sabotage), the 393 of the aircraft and helicopter, and also 1185, were damaged . The armed forces of South Vietnam, according to one source, from 1964 to 1973, lost 25 planes and helicopters on the ground destroyed and 305 damaged.

      Excuse me - where exactly did ours get surrounded in the 45 year? Just wondering ... it didn't seem like that.

        Excuse me - where exactly did ours get surrounded in the 45 year? Just wondering ... it didn't seem like that.

        In Hungary’s 45th (in January, even before the covert transfer of the 6th SS Panzer Army), to stop the Germans in the threatened area, the infantry and tank corps reinforced with anti-tank artillery were introduced into battle against the advancing Viking division. these units fought surrounded for two days. Then they nevertheless made their way to their own, but suffered heavy losses and left almost the entire materiel at the handed over positions. And tactical environments like this (on a smaller scale, of course) always happened in the 45th, alas. we then waged a quick, maneuverable war and our advanced detachments were far removed from the main forces. If the German generals had mobile units at hand, they would certainly try to counterattack and cut off our advanced detachments. Again, exits to large rivers --- to the most favorable sections of the troops had orders to force large rivers on the move. But not all bridgeheads could be held. I think that was what he meant by "encirclement of the 45th year." All the same, the German was very I’m very experienced and strong on the battlefield even in the last months of the war. But of course, there was no question of any strategic environment! The Germans had the strength to only retreat and constantly snarl, and our staff members foresaw any emerging crisis on the scale of the front or army and For example, in order to defend the right wing of the 1st Belorussky before his attack on Berlin, an operation had to be carried out in Pomerania. This victory was an expensive price, but it allowed the capture of Berlin to be carried out at a high pace, and time then decided a lot ...

            You just didn’t understand. I spoke for the 45th year. Until the 43rd year, the Germans still had the opportunity to try to advance in one strategic direction. After Kursk, the front began to shift steadily to the west, even though the total length of the front line was decreasing and the battle formations of the Germans were consolidated, and the supply shoulder was shortened.
            The difference in the year and three years is explained by the fact that we only managed to recover and reach full capacity by the time of Kursk, created from 0 and began to practice the use of new full-armored tank armies.
            But in the 45th, we hacked ANY defense of the Germans and the initiative was completely on our side, that is, we ourselves decided where it is more profitable for us to put the Germans before the choice: once again retreat or remain on the defensive and thereby get into an inevitable environment.

          I would not agree with all your points.
          almost half a million soldiers were killed in the Berlin operation, 1800 of our tanks and self-propelled guns were destroyed in the city alone. Was it worth that rush? In a week, the surrounded city would surrender itself without food supplies and other. And the bloody capture of Budapest? And the offensive to help the allies in the Ardennes? It was worth it? I am far from certain of this.

            Leningrad held on for 3 of the year without evacuating the population and training. In Stalingrad, the Germans broke even with their complete superiority. Berlin was a fortress evacuated and prepared for defense, capable of holding on for years.
            Yes, he probably would have surrendered, but he would have surrendered only to the Allies, and even after our decisive and overwhelming contribution to the victory, even our soldiers would not want to.

        Excuse me - where exactly did ours get surrounded in the year 45?

        Near Dresden, in April 1945. For example, the 254th and 294th rifle divisions ... and a number of other units of the Konev front.
        Loss of connection in the battles for Weissenberg from April 20-24, 1945 amounted to 1358 people (105 people killed, 215 wounded and 1038 missing). During the breakthrough on April 24, the commander of the 857th Infantry Regiment of the 294th Infantry Division B.M. Frankel was killed. In the military journal of the High Command of the Wehrmacht, the last note sounded victorious: “Weisenberg is again freed from the enemy. Numerous trophies have been captured. ” According to German data, during the counterattack, they captured about 800 prisoners.
        The report of the headquarters of the 52nd Army on the state of the 254th Rifle Division by 18.00:25 on April 294 was even darker than the description of the state of the XNUMXth Rifle Division two days before. It read:

        "929 sp - a grove of south-west. Bautzen South okr. [aina] Bautzen, leads the battle surrounded.

        936 cn - east okr. [aina] Bautzen, leads the battle surrounded.

        933 joint ventures - one battalion with units 107 and 110 glanders. [Black] battalions holds the crossing across the river. Spree in the area of ​​sowing. factories in Bautzen, southeast. Teichnitz. "

        Holding Bautzen in such conditions was pointless and simply impossible. On the night of April 25 to 26, the thinned brigades and the remnants of the 254th Infantry Division defended the front with the south on the way of advancing the enemy along Reichstrasse No. 96. By morning, the remnants of the Weissenberg detachment, brought together in one 57th Guards, also pulled themselves here. a tank brigade of only 337 people (out of 2043 people, only 337 remained!). *

          Thanks for the information - I will study the question in more detail hi Yes - the German was strong, it is a fact.
          But I had in mind the strategic environment. These, of course, were absolutely inevitable.
          But UAVs, such as Orion, are very necessary - there was a video on the network where, presumably, Orion (not quite sure) highlights the targets of the gunners and pilots. If at least a link of such machines were constantly stationed at the base, and one or two would constantly patrol the adjacent territories, and even with a targeting system, put a couple of trunks with Krasnopol on the base and the reconnaissance / destruction system for targets in the adjacent territories would be ready. It is furious to speed up the adoption of these UAVs, or similar.

    The shelling of the militants of our base in Syria is a minus. It is necessary to take measures and they will be taken. The fact that such shelling of militants is not in Russia (and we remember them) is a plus.

    Have we hurried with the withdrawal of most of the military contingent? The role of intelligence and counterintelligence is clearly weakened, which is why the above-mentioned sabotage takes place. Shots in the back can also be expected from the so-called partners (US Armed Forces), and provocations from areas controlled by Turkey can also take place. Therefore, it is too early to order bravado about the withdrawal of Russian troops, but this is happening and it is not quite worthy to look against this background. It begs the use of high-precision weapons without regard to the humanitarian mission as a whole, and in the perception of world powers such as the United States and the EU.

      nickgv - Putin made no mistakes when he repeatedly spoke about the withdrawal of troops. This is a tricky strategy, like the Americans. Say one thing and do another. I can assume that with the withdrawal of troops followed by a larger input of equipment and other ... and other things.

    Why suddenly Kedmi began to assess the situation? The former does not exist, the target audience is readers of the site.
    Look at Chabad by definition- and Solovyov, who introduced into the media space both Satanovsky and Kedmi, on the other hand. It doesn’t happen that these people just like that pour assessments aimlessly.

    and let a comrade from Israel think about his army, we will figure it out for ourselves, thank God there is someone.


    For an intelligent person - no advice is superfluous.
    No criticism is superfluous.
    But it’s not possible to understand on your own.
    How many such cases have been?
    And Afghanistan and Chechnya - experience is immeasurable.
    Understand and do not allow the following.
    so no. Every time a new rake.

    And most importantly, what everyone is silent about.
    Killed 2 soldiers - most likely this is an advanced NP.
    31 December.
    Here is something that haunts me the situation that previously was dozens and hundreds of times.
    When the forward NP is cut out and the position is already fired from its position.
    The question is, how do spirits get to soldiers at the NP?
    - Loss of vigilance (alcohol, NG. Sleep, etc., entering the confidence of local residents and the subsequent massacre as pigs.
    - The action of trained saboteurs ...

    In any case, this is not just a puncture, it is a systemic crisis.
    Where are those smart watches for soldiers on guard duty?
    Which half a year ago was admired by everyone on this site. Hats and bonnets flew right away.
    So where are they? even 20-30 pieces for the base in Hmeimim could not be done ...
    We do not have more important bases now. Especially for political reasons.

      And about the deaths of soldiers you are right. 2 soldiers died ... what happens? How many people can be lost in such small episodes? Already guarding the perimeter of the equipped base could take care of security! I don’t exclude that the pros will inflict losses on any base, but how much better would be the news "1 soldier is slightly injured, the rest escaped with fear and reprimand of the authorities"

There are real professional experts and interesting reports.

    Jacob Kedmi is an excellent analyst with considerable knowledge and experience. No questions. However, he analyzes what has already happened, on the basis of the theory of military art of the past tense, historical processes and the emerging military-political situation today, now. It is difficult for me to judge the level of preparedness of commentators and their "expert" opinions. Question 1. Who can know on the Web what the country's leadership and its General Staff of the Armed Forces are planning? Question 2. Where did the media link to some dubious sources without identifying a specific source? Are they a special caste with their own dissenting opinion and access to mass “freedom of speech” and initiating “broad masses of the population” to fully solve geopolitical problems, instead of solving problems in their place, in their country, region, city? Let's deal with our kitchen, and let those who are involved in this business understand this hodgepodge, and not amateurs with a universal secondary, complete and incomplete education. Sincerely.

      Following your constructions, you can come to the conclusion that military art over time grows like a tree. But turning our eyes to other arts, we see completely opposite results. Well, tell me, is it possible today to be found among writers such as Lermontov, and among composers such as Tchaikovsky? Maybe among the artists there are those who surpassed Levitan, Leonardo, Shishkin, Savrasov? Maybe poets? Who has surpassed Pushkin, Bunin, Yesenin? So the situation with military art is about the same. Now about higher education ... is that a certificate of intelligence and talent? So parents and gods endow these qualities of people.

        And here is art and war? Military art is the ability to defend and destroy. Comparison with people in poetry, prose, image somehow does not fit with that "art" for which there is already nothing. The task of military art is to ensure that such talented people can calmly, under clear skies, be able to create their masterpieces. Behind this art is the life of people, both friends and strangers, and verbiage (sorry I don’t have time to discuss with you) and thanks to the military art of our military, we can still be proud of our nation. As for higher or secondary education, so if you do not have brains, universal secondary education will not help. Sincerely.

      They won’t leave, they didn’t come for that. Their goal is the destruction of Syria as a sovereign state, a bridgehead for the destruction of Iran. Further, the ring will close, it will be the turn of Russia (with its resources) and China (the main holder of US foreign debt).

    These losses were suffered, despite all the measures taken to protect the air bases, and, without such measures, the loss figure would have been possible at times. It is significant that the greatest damage occurred in 1968, when about 500 American planes and helicopters were lost or damaged on the ground, despite the massive use of caponiers and the dispersal of equipment at airbases by that time.In total, 475 American forward airbases were attacked during the Vietnam War. times (only Danang was subjected to 95 attacks), while mortar, artillery and rocket fire were fired in 457 cases. A total of 6163 units of mortar, artillery and missile ammunition were released. At the same time, as the experience of the war showed, often even very limited attacks and attacks with their proper preparation, sufficient skill of the performers and a certain share of luck could lead to very heavy losses. The short-term fire of even a small number of 82-mm mortars, which were most often used for shelling American air bases with a relatively small number of mines, turned out to be quite sufficient for effective destruction of personnel and aircraft even with measures taken to increase security (the presence of caponiers, shelters, dispersal, etc.). d.).

    I am surprised that the respected expert community, when analyzing the situation in Syria, thoughtlessly compares it with the military-political situation in Vietnam and Afghanistan. These, as they say in Odessa, are two big differences. The Popular Liberation Front of South Vietnam, which was supported by the armed forces of the DRV, is by no means comparable to the Syrian opposition, which simply has no future. In the case of Afghanistan, almost the entire Muslim world has taken up arms against us, which is now absolutely not observed. Well, the rest, you need to act as expected, including strengthening the protection of Khmeimim and Tartus, conduct reconnaissance, etc. The main thing is that Truth and Justice are on our side.
