US military in Syria requested instructions in case of Russian attack

The command of the American military contingent in Syria asked the Pentagon for instructions on how to deal with an attack by regular troops of Russia, Turkey, Iran or Syria, as well as their possible allies. This was reported by The New York Times, citing sources at the Pentagon.


The publication writes that the US command in Syria considers an attack by Russian, Turkish, Iranian and Syrian government forces as potentially more likely and dangerous than an attack by militants of the Islamic State terrorist organization (banned in Russia). In response to a request for instructions on how to act in the event of an attack by the above states, the Pentagon gave "extremely vague instructions."

Sources of the newspaper claim that the situation that has developed in Syria recently and in which the US military has found themselves, was the result of conflicting orders of Donald Trump. He said that the remaining contingent should protect the oil fields, and in fact, the US military continues to fight terrorists from the IG.

Meanwhile, the head of the Pentagon, Mark Esper, speaking at a hearing on the committee on the armed forces of the House of Representatives of Congress, said that although Russia's military presence in Syria has expanded significantly lately, the US is not worried. Today, Washington is more concerned about Russia's expanding influence in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere.

    The Pentagon explained that the actions of Russia in the event of an attack cannot be foreseen by any instructions, you just have to give up.

          A few hours ago it became known that the next military patrol of the northern part of Syria by the Russian military was frustrated due to the aggressive actions of American troops. It is reported that in the area of ​​the village of Kakhtania, the US military detained a patrol with the Russian military, saying that the passage to this area was closed, while a number of sources even said that the US side threatened the Russian military with the use of force.

            If this is true, then something they’re not saying once the instructions were needed, they probably raked.

            at the same time, a number of sources


            sources are clearly not familiar with the Russian mentality, and therefore compose.
            In order for a Russian to want to do something, he needs to be banned.
            I have no doubt that the Americans would have taken all their aggressive actions in every muzzle and no matter what consequences this would have led.

          I think this does not mean operational instructions for individual military personnel, but an action plan for the US Army as a whole. Those. for example, whether tactical or even strategic aviation will be involved and from where. What powers does the fleet have. For example, launching fifty "axes" against the air base in Khmeimim. And this is only about Russia. The same plans should be kept in folders for other potential threats.

          It is quite normal practice tactical planning. I am sure that in the Russian Ministry of Defense there are action plans for a direct clash with the US army in Syria.

        Have you forgotten what happened to Putin’s mercenaries when they tried to squeeze the oil rigs from the Americans in Syria? The same thing can happen with regular units of the RF Armed Forces. The point is not that the Americans were scared, but that they do not want excessive bloodshed! If they are given a command, they will demolish the Russian base in Syria.

    asked the Pentagon for instructions on how to deal with an attack by regular troops from Russia, Turkey, Iran or Syria,
    And why didn’t they ask for instructions in case of an attack by aliens? And here generally beyond the reasonable
    US command in Syria considers attack by Russian, Turkish, Iranian and Syrian government forces potentially more likely and dangerousthan an attack by militants of the terrorist organization "Islamic State"
    On the other hand, they confirm who their real allies whom they are less afraid of are - IS.

So these "sources from the Pentagon with their wise instructions" were born. And all for the sake of this line
    ... the situation that has developed in Syria recently and in which the American military found themselves, was the result Donald Trump's conflicting orders..
