Military Review

The war with America in Syria: on the verge or already beyond?

The mediated war with the Americans in Syria actually began from the moment the Russian videoconferencing system entered Syria: both on the ground and in the air, incidents occurred on the verge of, and sometimes beyond, “peaceful coexistence”. Attack drones base in Khmeimim, shelling PMC "Wagner", a number of incidents with American special forces, contact in the air ...

If the main military superpowers on the planet came into direct contact in Syria, then, of course, there is a chance that a spark will erupt between them and a conflict breaks out, or it will be intentionally inspired by one of the parties. Well-known political analysts in various programs have been talking about this for a long time.

The very fact of the entry of Russian VKS into Syria allowed for the possibility of a military clash with the Americans, and, apparently, was taken into account by Vladimir Putin and worked out by the General Staff. On the first occasion, as soon as our Su-24 was shot down by the Turkish Air Force, Putin immediately makes a very sharp and important statement: the Russian Aerospace Forces will destroy any military means of attack in the event of a threat to Russian troops and facilities in Syria. “Any,” the president singled out in a voice, and it was clear that they were American.

The provocation with the Su-24 was most likely inspired by the United States, this version is confirmed by the subsequent attempt of an army plot against Turkish President Erdogan, in which the Turkish Air Force played an active role. This combination was seen by our special services and the incident with the Su-24 was not developed.

Today, the General Staff confirmed the long-declared position of Putin, saying that not only missiles threatening the Russian troops, but also their carriers, that is, warships, airplanes, and possibly military bases, will be destroyed. In other words, nothing fundamentally new in Syria is happening. When the Foreign Ministry and Russia's permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia, declare “the gravest consequences for any military intervention in Syria,” they repeat, in fact, Putin’s long-standing statement after the attack on Su-24.

There are semi-conspiracy versions that some kind of US military provocation against Russia had been preparing for a long time, and Putin’s March-to-March report with a demonstration of the latest Russian weapons was intended to prevent this provocation by showing firsthand its “grave consequences”. Allegedly, Putin’s report, which was originally prepared, did not include a section on the latest military developments, it was added at the last moment.

This version is supported by a not very long interview with former US Vice President Joe Biden, in the summer of 2017, in which he repeated the words of Pentagon analysts that they have a maximum of four years to stop Russia, otherwise the United States will not be able to maintain world domination. Then the hawks in the US need to rush into a military conflict with Russia, and the situation in Syria is a convenient excuse to start this conflict for any reason, which we see today in Western hysteria about the alleged chemical attack in the Duma near Damascus.

In this case, there will be no inspections of the OPCW in Syria, the United States will ignore what happened or did not happen in the Duma: it doesn’t matter to them, the United States only has a reason, no matter what a lie, for the war in Syria. The only thing that can stop them is a demonstration of Russia's military capabilities in Syria and in general. If they personally see the "cartoons" from Putin's March 1 speech.

Today, V. Putin has not yet made public statements on the situation in Syria, but he had telephone conversations with Berlin and Paris, and spoke with Trump not so long ago, after winning the election. Maybe that's why Macron and Trump say "about the likely chemical attack in the Duma." Trump is still facing a big price for “everyone for a chemical attack,” namely, Syria, Russia, Iran, but he also needs to weigh the price of “heavy consequences”. All noted that in this series of countries Trump did not mention Turkey, but in fact it is not in the ranks of the voluntary allies of the United States.

If the inspection of the OPCW in the Duma will be disrupted by the United States, it will cause Russia to accuse the United States of blatant aggression, without conducting an investigation, in Syria and act accordingly. If the OPCW inspection arrives at the Duma, this is a chance to get out of this conflict situation, provoked, apparently, by the British special services, which control the only source of this misinformation - the so-called “White Helmets”.

American political scientist Stephen Cohen on the situation in Syria on the air of American TV said that "at the end of this path is war." A war of at least a regional scale, in and around Syria. The positions of the parties here are not entirely obvious. U.S. with satellites have an advantage in the region in aviation, navy, in the bases. But Russia is fundamentally closer to the Syrian theater of operations, its military carriers can operate from the Caspian Sea, maybe the Black Sea, strategic aviation has already tested the Iranian route of approach to Syria and US bases in the Persian Gulf.

Finally, no one knows the combat capabilities of the hypersonic Avangard, which is deployed in the North Caucasus, and other “cartoon” weapons of Russia. Actually, the “grave consequences” that our Foreign Ministry is talking about may follow precisely from these weapons.

The key question posed by our liberal attorneys of the West in connection with the Syrian events was: was it worth it for Russia to enter its VKS into Syria, perhaps, it was better to give it to the Americans? No, it is not better, it was as necessary for Russia to go to Syria as it was to save the Crimea, and to defend itself with the help of Crimea and Donbass from the American and Bandera expansion in Ukraine.

Hillary Clinton, when she was secretary of state, said bluntly that in the Middle East, the United States would completely "arrange moderate extremist regimes." Without the intervention of the VKS RF in Syria, there would have already been established a “moderate” extremist regime, overrun by militants from the post-Soviet space, which would become the basis for the expansion of this “Caliphate” to the Kurdish regions of Turkey and Iran with a final exit to the borders of Russia, the extremists did not hide these plans. By the way, the informal union of Russia, Turkey and Iran in Syria is explained precisely by this circumstance that all three countries could become objects of expansion of an extremist neoplasm in Syria under the auspices and with the support of the USA.

    The Americans will undoubtedly try to repeat the mass strike, but at the same time they will try to beat so as not to hook us. Their intelligence is not so hot, basically they rely on informants loyal to green ideas, so no one will ever give a 100% guarantee not to get into Russian Trump.
    After they hit the empty trenches, declare a hundred injured citizens of the Russian Federation, as Pompeo wanted. САР - notify the UN Security Council that the United States is assigned the official status of an interventionist with all the consequences for the interventionists. We will not touch the American bases in Saudi Arabia, like ships with planes in the international space, but in the territorial waters and air of Syria we get a full carte blanche which is simply vital to use 100500%. It’s basically a mobile group of mercenary instructors teaching the past rebranding of the IG, and cutting off arms supplies, and aerial excursions of barmalei on coalition helicopters ... Already at the first blow, we actually untied our hands and continue to sit and endure American attacks secretly, of course, purely Christian, but does not bring closer to victory.

      Yes there will be no large-scale blow. the Americans are already wearing pants. We would like to put it more accurately, if we had such an opportunity, we would have done it a long time ago and wouldn’t have written on Twitter saying that we are planning somewhere. They just understand that the answer will arrive, but this was not in the plans. They used to beat those who a priori did not give change.
      Well, let's say they strike from ships and planes from the territories of foreign countries. And we will take most of the missiles down. Several aircraft are possible. And sink a couple of their ships. What's next ? The king is naked! They will never go for it - this is such a loss of prestige after which their empire can collapse like a house of cards. They don’t risk such things.
      So they will continue to crap and create fakes .. Maybe a couple of small-scale operations can be performed, they say we can do something. Popyaritsya on this - but everyone understands that they are not the same. They are already vinegar and not wine.

          In the event of an attack on our base in Syria, we will be able to strike at their bases and ships anywhere in the Middle East from our territory.

No, it is not better to enter Syria for Russia as much as to save Crimea, and to defend with the help of Crimea and Donbass from American and Bandera expansion in Ukraine.

    And what will the OPCW write in the end? There who are experts - not the same "grant-eaters" as elsewhere?
    And about the fact that Putin foresaw the attack, I agree. Slowly these years pacified the enemy, and he rearmed the army, because a clash was inevitable. There will still be a battle for the Arctic, and staffers will not simply leave Syria. They brought the situation to the redline, now until they really rake it off - they will not calm down.

    The vanguard has not yet been adopted, as well as other new weapons announced by Putin. But probably in the piecewise version the same Poseidon, for the situation of the conflict with the United States, is somewhere on the alert, as well as the Petrel.
    Regarding the fact that the United States has 4 years, after which they de facto lose their military advantage, and therefore that very hegemony ...
    The USA has already lost this advantage at the moment when Putin showed new weapons. After all, what is the same Poseidon? This is a 100 megaton charge (in the nuclear version), which alone is capable of washing most of the US coast into the ocean, but I generally keep quiet about Britain. And if there are 5-10 such Poseidons? (EVEN NOT HUNDREDS).
    I see it this way ... the USA is trying to drop into the last car of the train that for 25 years made them the world gendarme (gopnik, as you like), who did what he wanted in the world without asking anyone for an opinion, including the UN .
    As to whether the United States will deliver the announced missile strike ... I think so. Question, when? And the answer is soon. Why? Yes, because, so to say, the weapon is already loaded and pointed. I believe that the group of mattress destroyers is waiting for the arrival of the AUG and its arrival will turn on that timer to the first axes to salvo.

    Forecast from my couch. The US in Syria has not fulfilled its task. Assadd is in place, the pro-American opposition is routed. Now they have a task how to get out of this situation without losing their "exclusivity". They will be able to gouge Syria, but not all of their allies will approve of it. Europe has not yet “experienced” the first refugees. Germany and Italy have already openly opposed. Greece, Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic and others are still puffing with displeasure, but they cannot openly (they are weak in their knees against the main owner). But the main brake is the uncertainty of how Russia will behave. How much is she ready to go to the "end". To save the “face” in this situation, the United States remains:
    a) draw the conclusion of the OCHA commission - the use of chemical weapons in the Duma has not been confirmed, the “strike” is canceled;
    b) “supposedly” enter into negotiations with Russia for adoption of non-binding decisions, diplomats know how to “wind up” this, and nothing concrete;
    d) to inflict not a “blow”, but a “striker” (as a year ago) for excuse, warning the Russian Federation in a day.
    e) inflict a “striker” in the border zone with Israel in places where Iraqi and Hamas warehouses are located, etc. (on a tip from Israel).
    Definitely, the United States will not go for a “big blow” to Syria with an attack by our bases.

    And where, damn it, our allies? Kazakhstan, so to the noise, generally rushed at an accelerated pace into the camp of the enemy, before they had somehow masked the persecution of Russians, now they are already in a hurry to even pretend. This was the degree of unprofessionalism (let’s hope the best thing is stupidity) that one had to have in order to leave their own territories, their own people without strict control and leadership, to give without a fight and not even for a beads, simply collected and protected for centuries, in hands and orders of the enemy, I’m sorry, “partner.” It seems to me that this is not stupidity at all, but a direct intention and interest. Then another question is what kind of protection and war can be discussed, if at the helm of the economy, education and culture, people who took an active part in the assassination of the country and its subsequent plunder and sale on such a scale that the history of human civilization did not know, moreover, voluntarily and without any profit. And most importantly, the socialist community of people, that is, the traditionally centuries-old communal way of life of our society with ancient traditions and ideals, has been saved and restored to power for many centuries. For several generations, an “advanced consumer” (now digital) has been systematically and purposefully educated, destroying education, creative thinking, patriotism, replacing the traditional values ​​of our people, alien and destroying our society.

      Recently I read an article revealing the essence of the last year: it seems that Tram and Putin are now engaged in exposing the shadow government and it seems that the shadow government has become a trap, now the heads of this shadow government will begin to fly away not only in the US and the EU, but also in Russia, many OLIGARCHS working for a shadow government.

        A lot of money for the same IG and other groups comes not from the US Department of State or government agencies, but from private mega-corporations owned by certain people in the West The same Saudis, not the royal family, are arming Islamic thugs around the world, as in Qatar is very rich. US government agencies often cannot even influence the situation in the world. This is a failure of the United States - everything has long been confirmed.
