An attack on Damascus from the Dar'a “sleeping zone” is being prepared. Trump's Revenge with Arabian Motives

62



As events of recent days show, official Washington, as well as the ruling elites of Great Britain, France and Israel have not for a moment doubted the correctness of their actions in the inexorably inflaming Syrian theater of operations. After all, even the crushing defeat of the coalition in a tactical strike operation on key air bases and military sites of the CAA in the western provinces of the republic is no longer able to stop the desire of these powers to achieve, at least weighty and as maximum a final victory in revenge, not only with the Syrian Arab Army, but also Russian military contingent stationed in Syrian territory.

Thus, US Assistant Secretary of State and ardent Russophobe Wess Mitchell, speaking on April 18 before a committee of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, declared Washington’s willingness to “use proportional force against the Russian contingent” to protect American interests in the Syrian Arab Republic. Such an unreconciled, but bold anti-Russian rhetoric from Mitchell sounded in addition to the already hackneyed topic about the February clash of the Wagner PMC with the SDF formations and the American contingent in the Husham pocket, to which many have long developed a very strong immunity.

The obsession of the state establishment on this topic is no longer surprising. The real concern here is a completely different point: the author of the threats addressed to Russia, Wess Mitchell, will soon become a backup “link” to US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, who is being prepared for approval by the Senate, who also has sharp anti-Russian attacks, and also White House Chief Donald Trump Speaking in a more accessible language, the “secondary state” of the United States (consisting of American hawks subordinate to the Israeli lobby and protecting the interests of the “war party”) eventually managed to “re-educate” Trump under the geostrategic plans advantageous to him.

And if immediately after his election as president of the United States, there was a desire to normalize and maximize warming of relations with the Russian Federation, as well as to jointly counter international terrorism, then just one year later the rhetoric changed exactly the opposite. And now the moment came when from the formerly occupying "Trumpnasha", 45-th President of the United States turned into a very malleable and dangerous "material for modeling" more and more new images that threaten global military-political stability. For example, now, in order to preserve normal ratings, he has to quickly eliminate all foreign policy “loopholes”, in which there are even the slightest hints of ties with Russia. Under a long escalation period, staff departments are being redrawn. A striking example of this is precisely the dismissal from the post of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and the promotion of Pompeo’s candidacy. As for the Syrian theater, as we said earlier, coalition forces led by the United States and with the support of Israel will definitely make one or several attempts to take revenge, especially after a failed missile strike, where they confidently achieved no more 25 of 105 launched missiles.

The revenge involves not only the next, even more powerful, MRAU for SAA objects with the additional use of carrier-based tactical fighter F / A-18E / F “Super Hornet” and the connection of ammunition RGM-109E, placed on the new destroyers DDG-51 USS “Arleigh Burke" , DDG-84 USS "Bulkeley", DDG-98 USS "Forest Sherman" and DDG-99 USS "Farragut" (entered the Mediterranean on Wednesday April 18), but also a hybrid ground operation, with the advantage of using the SSA bridgehead in the "de-escalation triangle "Dar'a - Essaouida - El Quneitra" in the south of the SAR. So, news The VESTI.RU publication, citing Syrian military-diplomatic sources, claims that the militants of the Free Syrian Army and Jebhat al-Nusra are actively building up their offensive fist in the area of ​​the city of Dar'a and have already concentrated hundreds of units on the Damask operational direction light and heavy armored vehicles, as well as more than 12000 thousand well-trained militants. About the transformation of this "de-escalation zone" into the area of ​​active hostilities, we spoke in early April. Today, this forecast is even one step closer to the truth.

The swinging of the situation near El Kuray (the western environs of Dar'a de-escalation triangle) is confirmed by data published on the Twitter page of an Israeli columnist and analyst, @David Daoud, who is a supporter of FSA militants. He reports that the Shabab al-Sunnah rebel detachment destroyed a group of Hezbollah fighters. As far as we know, the latter still plays a crucial role in the confrontation with groups of jihadists from IS almost all over Syria and has an impressive size in the southern provinces of the SAR, especially near the Syrian-Lebanese border.

This is done only for one purpose - to provoke Hezbollah’s field commanders to take immediate response without the consent of the CAA command. Then all pro-government forces will be accused of violating the de-escalation regime established in the Dar'a area. The open common frontiers of this opposition bridgehead with Jordan will allow rebels to receive material and technical assistance from such allies as the United States, Israel, Great Britain, France, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Qatar on an ongoing basis. Thus, the former “de-escalation triangle” will turn into a real exhausting hot spot for the Syrian Arab Army, not by the day, but by the hours pulling out of the Syrian military, “Tiger Forces” and “Hezbollah” all the resources, plus morale. The only way out here can be a lightning offensive operation with the previous destruction of observation / strongholds located on Darya, Essaouida and Quneitra heights along with two strategic highways connecting the “green bulwark” »Opposition terrorists with Jordan and Israel. Moreover, it was necessary to begin the assault on the southern “half-boats” several months ago, when the group of militants here was relatively small (today there are just over 10 thousand, tomorrow there may be more than 15 - 12 thousand).

It is likely that the offensive actions of militants in this region will be supported not only by high-precision fire weapons coalitions from At-Tanfa and Hel Haavir, but also units of the armed forces of Saudi Arabia (the Royal Saudi Ground Forces) deployed to the Jordanian-Syrian border. Not everyone drew attention to the fact that the level of tension in southern Syria increased precisely at that period when Donald Trump held consultations with the leaders of the Asian countries regarding the possible replacement of the 2-thousandth American contingent with the analogous Arab grouping. The head of the SA’s foreign policy department, Adele Al-Jubeir, rated this idea very positive. According to the newspaper The Wall Street Journal, the White House intends to introduce the Arabian army into the SAR to eliminate the “security vacuum” after the withdrawal of the KMP and USF units, but it is almost impossible to trust such information.

Imagine the picture when the Pentagon transfers control over the richest oil fields of Al-Omar to Riyadh. Moreover, it is hard to imagine the interaction of the Kurdish detachments of the “Syrian Democratic Forces” with the Sunni divisions of the armed forces of Saudi Arabia, feuds on religious grounds with armed SDF detachments are simply inevitable here: different views, different worldviews, etc. Moreover, back in early September 2017, Kurdish political analyst Siddik Hassan Sukru noted that Riyadh views Kurdish people's self-defense units in the Persian region exclusively as an excellent "cannon-fodder" for clashes by Shiite militia supported by the Islamic Republic of Iran. Even pro-American Kurds from the SDS are unlikely to sign up for such a “neighborhood”.

Obviously, we have another action, precisely verified by the American defense structures, which absolutely does not provide for the withdrawal of the US military from Syrian Kurdistan, but consists only in additional input of the military units of the SA, Qatar, and maybe the UAE. You do not need to be a great expert to understand which operational directions this Arabian “gang” will be directed to. First, it is the above-described so-called “de-escalation triangle” “Dar'a-Essaouida-Quneitra”. As you understand, the 12-18-thousandth contingent of "rebels" from FSA and "al-Nusra" is clearly not enough to break through the fortifications of the Syrian Arab Army covering the southern approaches to the Syrian capital. In the case of military support from Riyadh, Doha and / or Abu Dhabi, this number may increase to 50 - 70 thousand troops. The most absurd and unpleasant moment here is that with Riyadh in February 2018 all documents were signed under the contract for the sale of the best long-range air defense systems C-400 Triumph; it turns out that here we get "spitting in the face" from our Persian-Asian "partners." Fortunately, the complexes have not yet been delivered and Moscow has the possibility of cancellation of the contract.

Secondly, some units of the Arabian army can also “abandon” At-Tanfa’s 55-kilometer “safety zone”, from where they can launch an offensive operation with the US, British and FSA offensive forces both on Damascus and in the direction of the Euphrates. Alarms continue to come from this area almost every day. So, on April 19, another attempt was made to capture the T-3 station by IG formations from the “awakened cauldron” outside Palmyra, just in the direction where the rebels from At-Tanfa plan to occupy some villages on the territory controlled by the CAA. For a quick offensive in this direction, coordinated with both ISIS and the FSA, the coalition lacks heavy armored vehicles of the Saudi Arabia. Considering that only Abrams in the M1A2 and M1A2S versions of the Saudis are about 340 - 350 machines, 50 - 100 units. can be sent for joint operations with the forces of the Western coalition against the government forces of Bashar al-Assad.


DRLOI / REAR G550 CAEW aircraft


The Emirates are able to provide for such an action an impressive number of Leclerc MBTs equipped with modern terminals for exchanging tactical information on the battlefield; and the list is far from complete. The undoubted strategic advantage for the States here is that the transfer of Arab tank brigades to the Syrian-Jordanian border will take about 1 - 1,5 days, while the transfer of a much smaller amount of heavy armored vehicles by dock ships and universal amphibious assault ships from the United States will take more than three weeks.

New data on changes in the situation around the preparation of the “southern de-escalation zone” for hostilities against the CAA may appear in the coming days, because in the evening, 19 of April, the Daria area was again under close surveillance by the American aircraft of strategic radio and electronic intelligence RC-135W and more small-scale Israeli DRLOIU-G550 "Eitam" CAEW aircraft operating south-west of Lebanon’s air borders.

        The states "earned" very well in two world wars, and their "serious" hostilities were only against Japan, because the Japanese attacked first (the Lord God "had mercy" on us, did not allow war on two fronts). They do not want to attack Russia openly. Talented "financiers" know history and how the French campaign of 1812 and the German 1941 ended. “Roll out” Iraq, Yugoslavia, Libya, Afghanistan, creating an occasion, right up to the “attack” of their skyscrapers, are capable of. For an open attack, Russia needs “alien” pens with a “Hitler” at the head, but so far there are no candidates.

            You are right, dear, but in the educational institutions of mattress, the victory story is attributed exclusively to the forces of the allies! There, the majority do not know how long WWII lasted! And even more so does not know about the comparative losses of the parties! Which, in principle, will soon be in an independent one, where they rewrite history in a particularly perverted form, which Ukrainians represent exclusively by the injured party! They, poor ones, were forcibly forced to live, work and report to each other throughout the Soviet period! They probably have someone to take an example with, however! hi

        This S-400 was given to you. We will not bomb Turkey or Saudi Arabia. The complexes are exported, we know the frequencies, our software, there are probably bookmarks. There are no big differences from the S-300, and the states have long studied this complex thanks to Ukrainians and Belarusians. In the West, they already put afar on air defense systems, even China has these technologies. Do not consider yourself smarter than those who authorized the supply. Now it is more important to get billions of rubles from the US allies, so that they would not go to American companies and the budget, so that our specialists do business and not sell potatoes.

        The FSA is undergoing restructuring of the Middle East, the CA, the Emirates, Qatar are also interested in this, and just like in Europe (Yugoslavia, Ukraine) states that are not controlled by the FSA (Syria, Iran) are being removed.

    It is clear that the Americans will not stop in Syria on their last blow to nowhere. The hope that our General Staff and local advisers are calculating all the options and preparing for any development of events. It is worrying that Trump has arrogantly declared a “fierce battle” with the Russian troops, in which, of course, only the Americans could win. This almost directly indicates that public opinion is being prepared for a possible real clash between the Americans and ours.

        The most important metastasis in the Kremlin has formed. Metastases are a criminal way of privatizing the largest profitable enterprises in the country that our grandfathers rebuilt. Metastases are a huge corrupt bureaucratic apparatus, rotten law enforcement agencies, cannibalistic courts. What Syria, what ISIS?

      What is common between Syria and Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya, Pakistan, Egypt, etc.? The fact that Russia has nothing to do there.

      And you, apparently, think that there is definitely something mattress-like to do there ?! hi

        Bastard, provocative statement of the question - Are Russians in the Kremlin ??? -
        For such a thing, I would immediately tear my tongue out and jerk my hands out, Schaub did not climb OUR MULTINATIONAL, MULTI-CONFESSIONAL PEOPLE to teach and set on each other!
        I am Russian according to my passport, I am a citizen of the GREAT RUSSIAN STATE, a lot of things are mixed in my blood, I don’t have any religion burdened with it, when my country gave the order to protect it, we went - for the MOTHERLAND, for the USSR, the time has come for RUSSIA! He who is not with us is against us!

      The creation of a radical pseudo-Islamic aggressive belt of states along the entire southern borders of the USSR is a long-standing idea of ​​the owners of the US Federal Reserve: from Turkey to Pakistan. This geopolitical plan with the collapse of the USSR has not gone away. Despite the pen for "communist education" of the East, there were no idiots in the Soviet Central Committee Political Bureau and the General Staff in Soviet times, which is why they stared at Afghanistan at the time. So there’s "something to do." Otherwise, in 5-10 years, abreks will begin to scurry near Chelyabinsk, and the Nursultan family will share the “feeds” with Yanukovych. If the stars are lit, then someone needs it. Conspiracy theory works in 90% of cases. You won’t be able to hide under the covers. They will try to flatten and divide Russia. In the words of Cherkasov in the role of Alexander Nevsky: "Unable to fight on a foreign land - there is nothing for you to do on the Fatherland either!"

        Socialist Afghanistan, in principle, was a disastrous project .... a feudal, tribal country, there everyone who climbed in there got it by the ears! Moreover, their mentality is MESTCHESKOVY, they never, never went anywhere and build a capitalist, dermocratic paradise there, the same disastrous idea!
        Here ISIS was a more elaborate project, with understandable goals and aimed at the expansion of neighboring territories! Only he still stumbled on the inhuman essence of all religious. fanatical formations! With many grave consequences for the whole world!
        And as always, the biggest entertainers suffered either the least, or almost nothing!
        However, then it was done .... others will have to disentangle, for a long time and bloody!

    A huge plus of a real monarchy is that the monarch cannot be bribed, betrayed his country.

    Bribing the heirs ..- "Dad stayed in power, and you are young, brave, talented. You will come to power girls before a fig will be! Money is darkness!." “They try to choose one where there is a wavka in the head ... with weak mental abilities.” Throne coup and power controlled stupid doll ..

    It is necessary to carry out a tough operation to defeat the forces planning an attack on Damascus, justifying this by fighting IS and the security of the contingent of Russian forces. And do not pull, but how the United States quickly and decisively, without agreement with anyone, but warning Guterres 3 hours before the operation! It is necessary to show that Russia did not come to play games in Syria! And let the coalition rake up the remnants of their fosterlings!

    A new word in military history or a deuce in arithmetic? Soviet irretrievable losses of 80 thousand. US losses of 400 thousand.

    So it's not 400, but 365. And to hell with them, they also don’t particularly favor us.

      Since we started ... on the eve of Victory Day. And with arithmetic and history at school I was fine and good. I mean the entire Berlin offensive. 80 thousand irrevocable? Hard to believe. Data from Wikipedia? Zeelov heights, the city itself, the Reichstag .I think the numbers are rather big. Discuss on the topic of the losses in the Second World War, I think it makes no sense ... until the last soldier is buried - the war is not over

    Let them try! It can be seen that the Arabs of the American coalition have not been tough for a long time. The United States is trying to repeat what Russia has done: the Syrians are conducting ground operations, and the VKS is covering from the sky. Yemen shows the real price of the militancy of American novices. I think that separate clashes between our VKS and the USA are possible, but everything will be determined by our determination to repulse them. Americans are very sensitive to losses, besides Vietnam will remind them of something.
