Media: the United States put the Syrian Kurds MANPADS

74
The military units of the Kurdish militia in Syria received a batch of man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) from the United States as part of a “secret agreement”. This is the agency Al-Masdar, citing the source.


According to the agency interlocutor, the American military last week delivered MANPADS to the Afrin region in the Syrian province of Aleppo and handed them over to the Kurds.

Media: the United States put the Syrian Kurds MANPADS


Earlier, the Defense Post reported that a coalition led by the United States to combat the Islamic State * group has launched in Syria the creation of so-called "border security forces" together with the Syrian Democratic Forces (VTS). VTS were formed with the active support of the United States in 2015, as officially stated, to combat IS *. Formations, consisting mainly of Syrian Kurds, as well as some Arab tribes, received weapons from the US coalition.

Recall, the Turkish army is increasing its presence on the border with Syria, moving military equipment to border areas and leading to shelling at the YPG in the north of the country. Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan presented an ultimatum to the Kurds: to leave their positions within a week or to be ready for an operation to destroy them.

    Do not wash, so skate! The Yankees are in a hurry to start dividing Syria, so that through the Kurds the local oil can be taken over!

        Good morning Andrew. An interesting point - they put the Kurds, use it. And what will be the reaction of Ukraine? "(I'm in a humorous scenario) - After all, they’ll take offense! They didn’t give it to us, but at first they said we’ll train them away from the borders of the DLNR. It seems that the whole thing in Russia is the United States is afraid of the consequences. Sorry a little off topic.

          Western hardly. Most likely they expect to bring down the Syrian, i.e. Soviet built. It can be assumed that the Americans hope that the Kurds will use MANPADS against the VKS. Then generally beauty. I think so. that they will try to start a batch with the hands of the Syrian Kurds, and quietly merge, as with the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan. Again, if the Turks get it, Erdogan will immediately launch a large-scale operation in Syria on the eve of the All-Syrian Congress. Again, the Americans get what they want, because We’ll have to resolve it with our participation, and not just with words.

        But how will it end? By the fact that the Kurds are ultimately hanged by lyuli and forced to peace, only on conditions much worse than those on which they could be reconciled now. Practice shows that no matter who makes friends with mattresses, he was eventually thrown by his patron and a bit an opponent. It is time for the Kurds to realize that the economic and military component of Turkey, Syria, Iran and Iraq is much higher than all American handouts.

      This is no longer a country, but some kind of Gordian knot, before that everything was intertwined, and which only needs to be cut. It’s just not clear who will do it and how, otherwise the conflict and the end and edge are not visible.

      I note that the foreign policy of GDP, unlike the United States, is extremely flexible - we are actively participating in the Syrian mess, but relations with Turkey are restored, they are also equal with the Kurds, Iran, almost a partner, Egypt, the same, Arab sheikhs fly to Moscow, but Netanyahu does not get out of Sochi ... Yes, Iraq, completely controlled by the USA, is looking at the distant twinkling of Kremlin stars!
      Let me be accused of imperial manners, but the echoes of the 80s are felt in foreign policy, and this is damn nice!

          Good morning, Andrey.
          The situation in Syria and in general in BV is such that to talk about some kind of relationship, and even more so lasting frivolously, you never know where and how it will explode and why.
          Take the same Kurds, for 2 years it was
          From the point of view of Russia - to supply weapons - not to supply
          Give autonomy - not give
          Turkey - against, Russia - for, the Americans give weapons - do not give, etc. etc.
          Assad is generally against everything, like Iran.
          This is such an adder that slurp it with a full spoon and for years.
          And there will never be an end to the whole thing, and the most interesting thing is that it’s like the light will loom over, it’s like it’s all the same everything will break.
          There are so many groups with radically opposite goals, and each group has several million people and sponsors from all sides.
          And the Alawites as well.
          Syria, as I have long been saying, as a single state, is not and never will be. Now the question is, what part of Syria will the Kurds and the SSA control and will they cut off Assad from direct passage through the axis - Iran-Iraq.

              2. Lebanon - which in general should in principle be part of Syria. but it was separated because there were many Christians - sort of like, but
              gradually from the whole mess (especially when the palaces led by Arafat, expelled from Jordan, came to them - the Christians shed.

      And what we have now. While we are trying with this star-striped swine in a good, human way - we will take out the knives from our backs. For the hedgehog is understandable - “Stingers” brought against us.

    Military units of the Kurdish militia in Syria under the “secret agreement” received from the United States a batch of man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS)

    if eo is true, then this is very serious. the first downed Turkish plane and the unpredictable begins. Moreover, these MANPADS are likely to spread to other barmales and then there will already be a threat to our VKS

      Whom they see, they will bring down. There, "friend or foe" does not work.
      I grew up near military airfields, it happened. Well, there is a maximum of 15 seconds to make a decision, if not a helicopter and an ambush. They fly very fast.
      And as I say POShnik, it’s not so easy to knock down, while you’ll pile up this “fool” on your shoulder, until you realize that it’s already gone. An observer needs to be competent. In the exercises, when the Su-25 “falls” on you, you want to crap and run.

          There is always a mess.
          Few people know what happened there during the USSR.
          I lived in Vladikavkaz as a kid then. So the local civil war was. Helicopters circled, traces of bullets and shells are still on the houses. While the BTR-BMP did not surround a couple of villages and took everyone to an unknown destination, I think to Siberia. And my father, on duty, participated in this.

        good old Russian word ambush. if you know the elevation routes, there are no problems. (from where there is another topic) the Turks SU 24 were shot down not from the kandachka (example) fu16 was waiting-munching.

    The Americans presented a gift to their NATO ally. This once again suggests that the Americans absolutely do not give a damn about some "allies" on paper, and most importantly, achieve the goal in any way, even through possible losses of the so-called. "allies." Applause and happy faces of Poles, Balts, Romanians, Bulgarians ... through which the Americans will also step over if necessary.

    What is typical behavior of the Yankees? The fact that they never (very rarely) admit defeat ... And now, in a hopeless position, having a completely isolated enclave, they play any cards, bluff, try to use the little ones, plaster them slightly, and mix with the Kurds with whom they cut each other ... Wang, this will not help. More likely to lose their influence in Iraq ...

    The attack on the Russian air base may indicate that the Assad regime’s forces and the Iranians assisted in this operation, possibly in order to put pressure on Moscow, take revenge on it and humiliate it in Syria due to disagreements in the process of “sharing production”. This explanation of the shooting of the Khmeimim airbase is published by the Syrian online resource Baladi news. The area in which everything happened is directly related to the Assad regime, reminds Baladi news (translated by Inosmi.ru). Alavite and Shiite militias, loyal to the Syrian regime and Iran, which directly include members of the Assad family, are active in the territory around the Russian base. This means that the shelling could not have happened without the consent and assistance of members of these militia units. The fact is that local armed forces had to ensure the security of territories adjacent to the base. “And it is impossible to imagine that the source of the launch of mortar shells was not installed. At least the locals should definitely know who was involved in the organization of the attacks, ”Syrian sources say. At the same time, Syrian observers predict a tightening of control over the area around the Khmeimim base, as well as an increase in mistrust between Russians and Syrians. The shelling of the Khmeimim airbase can lead to qualitative changes in relations between Russia and various militia units in Syria, Baladi news suggests.

    To be honest, I'm for Kurdistan. It may simply be autonomy within Syria and Iraq. It seems to me if this happens then in Turkey everything with the Kurds will finally be quieter. They will simply dump autonomy from there. The main thing is that the Yankees there do not steer too much.

    So that the United States does not expel from the region, they need land, just squeeze the land - a natural military annexation. In order to give at least some semblance of decency, they need stpdo rams, which they will "protect" from the same evil Assad. Moreover, in parallel, whether this herd will be determined by ethnic (Kurds), political ("opposition"), or religious signs. The second and third option they did not go, it remains to work with the Kurds. In order for the Kurds not to fall “under the wing” of another ally, it is necessary that there be as much blood as possible between the Kurds and everyone else, so there will be many provocations of Kurdish clashes with other forces in the region, there will be many deliveries of weapons from the USA, terrorist attacks on behalf of the Kurds, or maybe by the Kurds themselves, prepared by the hands of the Americans, attempts to proclaim an independent Kurdistan in the eastern lands of Syria. Under the striped, the Kurds have no chance to hold out for too long. The latter never helped the wards to build statehood, only visibility. They are satisfied only with puppet power. And it will not be profitable - they will merge at a time or they will finish, peacekeepers are figs. The only chance of coursework is to send the Jankers to the forest and negotiate with the locals.

      Just the neighbors (Turkey, Iran, Iraq) are the historical oppressors of the Kurds. But the USSR at one time supported the Kurds. What can not be said about capitalist Russia.
