    ... Heads of the General Staffs of the Russian Federation and the USA held a telephone conversation ...

    A conversation between two specialists on specific issues. Without excess dust and stuffing.
    ... During the conversation, issues "related to the situation in the Syrian Arab Republic and other relevant topics of mutual interest" were discussed ...

    Everything is sparing and without hype. What "other relevant topics" were discussed is known to a narrow circle. Surely the "red lines" were indicated, within which politicians will build their actions on the Syrian issue.

        “Under the guidance of such a specialist” - what kind of specialist are you talking about?
        Only for the military - what are you talking about? Where are you between the 12 lines of this article? Did you find information about your readiness to harness only for the military?

            You flood my friend.
            Where is the former Ukraine and where are the issues of Syria?
            The issues of the paramilitary pro-Syrian units (there are no legal PMCs in Russia) were probably raised, as were the questions of the presence of the Merin instructors. The general public will know about it when the time comes.
            What should the chiefs of general staff have to tell you? Then it will be not the military, but the balabol, which has a place in the liberal party.

              There are other relevant topics written there ...
              The specialist steers, well, I do not argue ...
              But why America allows openly declare the theft of Russians in third countries ???

              I apologize and shut up, the specialist got into something ...
              The army should protect the people (in the person of each specific), but it just seems to me that the specialist has a different point of view ...

            Definitely specificity was present and understatement remained. Once the warriors began the conversation, then the diplomats moved aside.

        Unfortunately, the geldings are in the position that they control the oil fields behind the Euphrates. And this is a given. Moreover, they are capable, if not to take down Assad, to arrange a noble heartburn.
        I think that the two generals were just trying to disperse "edges".

    It worked. Here is the answer, who scared whom more. The United States clearly realized that it’s better not to do rocket attacks. I think there will be no third world.

        Of course, the whole world really understands that there will be no winners in a nuclear war. But after all, more than once in VO appeared those who believed in the reality of nuclear war. Which is coming in the near future.

      A couple of words.
      The Chairman of the US Armed Forces General School of Defense, Dunford, paused after the statement of our National Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Mr. V. Gerasimov, that they would bring down not only missiles, but also carriers if there was a threat to our citizens. Confirmation to the words of Haley in the UN Security Council that we are not bluffing went through deep channels. Putin has shocked the Yankees with new types of weapons ... And then a latent call from the Pentagon followed: "But you really ... don’t joke? ..NO ???" Gerasimov, I think, explained everything to him in detail ... After that, he clearly got sick of the “strike” ...
      It seems to me that it was something like this. Or very similar ...
      IMHO.

    Communication is good. I hope that during the talks the parties understand each other, find common solutions and this will help to refrain from rash steps.

    Even so:

    In any case, the mattress will enter negotiations with Russia, it is now in its interests. And at the same time they will hide these contacts from everyone, so as not to look like the losing side. In the same vein, negotiations are ongoing striped with the Koreans in Finland.

      Just like in Pirates of the Caribbean. When the pirates have no arguments, only "negotiations" remain.

    However, how sharply the position of the generals of Amerov’s generals differs from the inadequate ones - politicians ... These people understand who can be run into and who can not. laughing

    While the Western politicians are turning their faces at the military, being practically in contact in Syria, they agree. So the rhetorical question arises, and who is the military or the politician who seeks war more?

    I do not want the warriors to get involved in the third world war. Neither ours nor the Americans. Laudable desire.

    The military, which, unlike the political Russophobic horlophates, in which case, will have to really fight, reasonably believe that it is better to come to an agreement than to die later for these screamers.

    Good info. A thin world is better than a good quarrel.
    Although how penguins know how to keep their word, everyone knows. It’s fraught with something take off to negotiate.
