Military Review

Syrian World War

38
Now we know that the collective West consists only of the United States, Britain and France, who unconditionally took part in a missile attack on Syria on a false chemical reason, "highly-likely", the rest of the western countries are unreliable vassals. So collapses Pax Americana. Yes, everyone is a little scared, and especially to the Americans.




“The brutal silence of Russia,” as some observers say, referring to the pause that followed the announcement of “grave consequences” after any attack on the Russian Federation’s armed forces in Syria, sobered the American commander Dunphor, through him “Mad Dog” (Defense Minister Mattis) and President Trump. Probably in that order.

Russia put its VKS into combat readiness, showed that it was ready to fight, and the United States got scared. The upcoming crushing blow to Syria, as it was served by the American media, was transformed into a “ballet in a minefield”. This US attack on Syria was about twice as large as the number of missiles last year’s attack on the Shairat airbase, but the damage from it turned out to be even smaller, it is almost negligible. This time, no one died of the Syrian soldiers and civilians.

The main target of the US strike was the Syrian air force, but all the operating Syrian air bases were 100% protected: were all missiles fired at them shot down by Syrian air defenses or not only by Syrian airplanes? In principle, it does not matter. According to General Rudsky, all of the 103 missiles launched were hit by 71, or 68 percent - this is a missile attack failure and a high air defense result.

Militarily, the United States did not make sense to launch a missile attack on Syria’s air bases. Militarily, there was a sense of beating on the Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation, and such scenarios were being sent to the world media. Because the United States cannot inflict serious damage on the government of Bashar al-Assad as long as the Russian Aerospace Forces are in Syria. But Russia said about the "grave consequences." And that's all. Want to fight - please, the Syrian platform of Russia is suitable. Therefore, Russia was "cruelly silent": if the situation slides to a big war, then the responsibility will fall on the organizers of this rocket attack - the United States, and Russia will be untied for retaliatory actions.

The possible purpose of this US missile deterrence operation was to force Russia to leave Syria, so the world media did not deny that the target could be the Russian VKS to force Russia to obey the US dictatorship in the Middle East and everywhere else.

In other words, the goal of the United States in Syria is Russia, while Assad is a cover figure. Moscow sees this perfectly and speaks of "grave consequences" for the United States. Because it is unacceptable for Russia to turn Syria into a pro-American extremist bridgehead in order to put pressure on Russia from the Caucasus. For Russia, the transformation of Syria, in fact, into a “second Ukraine” is not acceptable.

The American strike that occurred militarily was more likely to be in the hands of Moscow. It turned out a sort of rocket shooting range: Syrian air defense, with the help of Russian, shot at the US missiles, as they shoot at a dash on a plate with a gun. The United States trained Russian air defense for free. Without a subsequent ground operation, all air strikes are still a big shooting range.

In general, since the entry into Syria of the Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation, the situation in the region has worsened for the United States. They, in fact, lost Turkey, and Russia acquired the Russia-Turkey-Iran alliance. The Russian Aerospace Forces mastered the region, the Syrian state gained strength. Further, the position of the United States in the region will only deteriorate, so this attack in Syria, Washington initially may have raised the question: now or never! It turned out - how it happened. Trump hurried to sum up: “The mission is complete!” But ... Special Prosecutor Muller’s investigation into Trump’s conspiracy with the Kremlin was investigated by 103 with cruise missiles from Trump!

It is said that the Syrian conflict is identical with the Caribbean crisis. This is unlikely, the latter was fleeting, had an obvious reason: the deployment of missiles by the opposing sides in Cuba and Turkey, so it was quickly resolved. The Syrian crisis is not resolved, but is drawn into a tighter knot. It resembles the time before the Second World War, it is more like a civil war in Spain, a forerunner of future major military events.

Mike Pompeo, when discussing his candidacy for the post of Secretary of State in the Senate, said that the United States has the right to “change regimes” in the world, because they are an “exceptional country”. And Russia is only “unique,” ​​so it does not have such rights. In Syria, Russia has shown that the United States is no longer an “exceptional country.”

    And we also made sure that among the former Soviet republics, by and large, there is no one to rely on ... belay And they also found out that the Syrians can fight and they need to supply weapons (the latest). Then they themselves will fight with coalitions ... belay And they also found out where terrorists should not be let out, everywhere ... their American friends were blowing with open arms ... belay And the West once again showed us the place with which it turned to Russia and is waiting for a kick ... belay

      "The greatest concern is the position of Israel, which, with the advent of Donald Trump, decided that he was able to use his influence in the White House to achieve military goals in the region. However, experts believe that Israel is not ready to go on a direct clash. This version is confirmed by the diplomat and political scientist Vyacheslav Matuzov: "Israel does not try to act on this issue with its own hands, but pushes American President Donald Trump to take this adventure.
      In fact, the last blow to Syria was inflicted with the active support of this idea from Netanyahu, who literally required Trump to start military operations, although on the eve of Trump announced that he was going to withdraw troops. But after talking with Netanyahu he changed his orientation and the idea of ​​striking arose. And, as the media say, Trump insisted on the toughest option, that is, on the Israeli position. "

        the US target in Syria is Russia, Assad is a cover figure.

        It is impossible to diminish the value of Assad in the SAR!
        SAR, headed by Assad, is the last sovereign Arab state in the BV, in which it is the SECULAR Constitution. The remaining states are RELIGIOUS and, in addition, some of them are monarchical.
        If the states are religious, then there will never be peace in a religious state. There will always be a civil war in it. And such a state is easy to manipulate from the outside.

          I agree with you, Assad was the ruler of the "iron", in contrast to the more charismatic leaders (Gaddafi, Hussein)
          Well, Syria is our last springboard in the Middle East. Presence in this region is simply necessary for us.

            Now Assad would have ensured the continuity of power. The fact is that among those who rallied around Bashar are full of those to whom the Asad family stands across their throats. While they are actually fighting with an external enemy and actually for their own existence - they support him, because there simply is no other way. And here it is worth winning - options and tension in relations will immediately appear. And for the Sunnis, And for Christians, Assad as the leader of the new reborn Syria is not acceptable. The question immediately arises - if you only win and complete the transition period - and who will be the leader. If the Alawites surrender power, it would be better for them to immediately disconnect into a separate state, otherwise the Sunnis will simply crush them up to destruction. If they do not surrender, then the only real candidate is General Suheil Al Hassan, who is now enjoying tremendous authority both among the SAA and the people.
            If Assad tries to stay in power, then this will lead to a new round of confrontation and completely ruin Syria. hi

    They actually lost Turkey, and Russia acquired the Russia-Turkey-Iran alliance.
    Here I would argue. To such allies, it’s not that backwards, you can’t stand sideways. They can only be "kept in mind", and rely only on yourself.

      good We are now traveling companions and have so far agreed on joint actions. But our interests in Syria are very different. Turks need control over the places of residence of Turkoman and ensuring the absence of threats from the Kurds. Iran is interested in leaving the Alawites in power and strengthening the position of the Shiites, as well as influencing the Syrian leadership to a greater extent. Russia needs to ensure its long-term presence in Syria, strengthen its influence in the region, while not pushing the Sunnis away. So in the foreseeable future, there are possible misunderstandings, first with Turkey, and then with Iran. Another thing is that Putin and the leaders of these countries are quite capable of negotiating. And for all three countries, Assad is not the only possible leader of the country. hi

    Russia acquired the alliance Russia - Turkey - Iransmiled, with such allies and enemies it is not necessary! Iran wants to fight the Jews with our hands, the Turks allegedly stopped supporting Assad’s opponents, although they actually created a bridgehead and raise an army of Turkomans. Such allies need to be beaten in the face every time so that the scent is not lost! And about outright enemies: Jews, Saudis, Qatari, beat in the face as often as possible, so that they were afraid to look in our direction, a real politician! The whole layout. Assad is also not a great friend to us. In 2009, he chopped off the gums with the SGA, but he managed to sell himself at the appointed price, and the barmalei set him up. For the world, it would be better if the oil ran out in the BV and they began to measure between themselves there again with sabers!

        smile Semen is Lehkhko. Syria is a key Middle East knot. If it falls, there will be a gas pipeline and an oil pipeline to Europe through it. But since Gazprom is already building a SP-2 in Germany, and from there potentially to all of Europe (rounded off), the presence of a gas pipeline to Russian oligarchs is not beneficial. but beneficial to Western oligarchs, especially the United States. Only I beg you, do not repeat the nonsense that Gazprom is a national treasure. wink

You separated the oligarchs from Russia, forgetting that, alas, they are an integral part of it, so you don’t have to mess around and Gazprom pays a tidy sum to the VF budget, did you decide to just shut up about it? And in general, they recently explained to you that there are no oligarchs in Russia, they are all in London fellow

Therefore, do not rush to put labels on and those who advocate for the legitimately elected government and are a true patriot.

    At the Shairat military base in Syria false alarm triggered, the national agency SANA reported, citing a source in the SAR army.

    Syrian television reported on the night of April 17 that The country's air defense shot down about ten missilesaimed at Shairat in the Homs area. This information was confirmed by a source in the government army, clarifying that there were no casualties and destruction.

    So maybe the April 14th missile shot down just imagined?

The real facts appear only after a certain time, the military of Syria and Russia must first themselves assess the results of the reflection of the strike and only then announce them to the press. Messages from individual sources are precisely unverified and hasty. Now the Moscow Region has presented all the data, laid out everything according to the objects of the strike, what do you still not believe, are you incredulous? Believe then the messages of the US Ministry of Defense, they have never in history ever recognized facts uncomfortable for them.

        The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation does not provide regular statistics, and ammunition consumption is not indicated, and the number of targets struck in one take-off strikes the imagination with its effectiveness.

As an example, in the first five press releases about the airborne forces of the airborne forces in Syria, the same object was four times present, which, according to the press release, was either in Idlib, then in Hama, then in Homs, or in Raqqa ... And in the fourth time an object exploded a second before a bomb hit it ...

    Russia acquired the alliance Russia - Turkey - Iran.[i] [/ i
    ,, Ally, Turkey supported the coalition's missile strike on Syria.
    Iran .... the problem of hydrocarbon production on the Caspian shelf remains the stumbling block of relations between Russia and Iran,
    Observers believe that, “Russia is preparing for war with Iran,” in the Caspian .... April 18, the media reported the end of the exercises.
    The training was attended by more than 1 thousand military personnel and more than 20 ships of the Caspian flotilla, including the crews of the missile ships Dagestan and Tatarstan ...
    During the second stage of the exercise, joint operations of ships during naval combat with surface ships of a conditional enemy with the implementation of a range of missile and artillery firing at sea, coastal and air targets were worked out.

    As you can easily see, we are talking about a very serious preparation for war with the “conditional” enemy.
    This is clearly not about the former Soviet republics - Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan, which, like Russia, have access to the Caspian Sea.

    There remains only one Caspian country, with which Moscow is demonstratively preparing to fight - this is Iran.
    The failure of the recent tripartite talks in Ankara (Putin-Rukhani-Erdogan) was marked by a statement by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu that the main base of the Caspian fleet was being transferred from Astrakhan to Dagestan Kaspiysk, closer to the theater of possible military operations.
    At a press conference in the Ministry of Defense, Shoigu emphasized that the personnel of the military contingent in the Caspian will be increased several times in the very near future.

    Actually, this was well known earlier, but the trouble is that the NATO countries that did not take part in this strike are very much afraid of their "godfather" and his inner circle. It is possible that Macron decided to participate in this strike under US pressure.

    The most important conclusion can be made that the unipolar world under the control of the hegemon has become uncontrollable. It remains to understand this for Britain and France, but this is a long process that will be accelerated after Trump's similar cowboy antics. Judging by the statements of Mike Pompeo, the Americans, in principle, can’t accept the option of a multipolar world, they seem to have won the Cold War, and here Russia appeared on you!
