Pentagon announces likely military conflict between Turkey and Russia

Russia and Turkey are closer than ever to a full-blown military conflict that could erupt due to the situation in the Syrian province of Idlib. This was stated by Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman.


According to the US military, the Russian and Turkish military are on the verge of a large-scale military conflict that could break out at any moment in the Syrian province of Idlib. However, the Pentagon hopes that the conflict will be avoided.

We are witnessing how Russia and Turkey are approaching a larger conflict in the area. We hope they find a solution to avoid this.

- quoted the media statement of Hoffman.

The representative of the US Department of Defense also emphasized that the United States hopes for the world community, which "will continue to exert pressure on Turkey and, more important, (...) on Syria so that it ceases its attacks on Idlib." The Pentagon did not say anything about pressure on Russia.

Earlier it became known that Ankara is not satisfied with the results of negotiations with Russia on the situation in the Syrian province of Idlib. This was stated by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. According to him, Turkey is ready for a new military operation in the province.

In turn, the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized that "no one ever promised the terrorists that they would not be touched in the Idlib zone," and the dialogue of the Syrian government with terrorists was excluded.

Recall that the Syrian government forces continue the offensive in the Idlib de-escalation zone, knocking out terrorist groups, including pro-Turkish, from the positions of militants. Turkey, which has its own views of the province, has set up its observation posts there and has entered the armed forces, demanding that Damascus withdraw its army units, stating that the civilian population "suffers from the offensive of the Syrian army."

      The Foreign Ministry amused my great-power chauvinism. The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation stopped the massacre of Christians in Syria and this is also great power. Special forces of the RF Armed Forces walks in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul and oppresses all the vomit that has believed in itself and decided to terrorize the local population
      Russia oppresses its line against the “world community” represented by a coalition of 50 or 60 states for 5 years. That's it. in 1999 would not have believed

          Constantinople. And so the militants, with the support of Turkish special forces, tanks and MLRS, launched an attack on Nairab. The goal is the M-4 highway and access to Sarakib. Serious fights. Mutual loss of armored vehicles. Various sources write that the CAA used the "Point" for the accumulation of "greenery". Several Su-35s are seen that strike at militants. We will observe further.

            Strange use of a fighter .. Su-25 and Su-24 are not enough for Khmeimim?
            And in general, it is not clear how our Defense Ministry prepared for such a development of events? After all, the amount of aviation in Khmeimim is completely incomparable with Turkish aviation. What will we parry? The Syrians can not stand and drape, they have it as a "hello". A pair of attack aircraft this armada of armored vehicles can not be stopped. And if Turkish aviation also dominates, then until Homs will roll like clockwork.

      Yes, but Erdogan’s advisers skillfully use his weakness - imperial ambitions. But the emperor should not lose.

          They will do so, but we need to understand this conflict, too, is not needed, and from a military point of view, all the more so - our positions in Syria are much weaker (if you look at the military). It is another matter for Erdogan to enter the open phase - to put everything on the line, sever relations with Russia and hand himself over to the Americans completely, he had already done this once, almost ended in tragedy.
          The Sultan plays here and there, between the contradictions of different countries, bargains, tries to sit on two or three masks. And if you come into conflict with one side - it means losing all the benefits
          This is the only argument why, in spite of threats, we will bend our line ..

          The first sign is that they will take out their nuclear weapons. If they don’t take it out, it means they and Erdogan have an amicable agreement. But they will not directly help. So ... aerospace reconnaissance, tactical data from tamed "moderate", etc.

    Pentagon announces likely military conflict between Turkey and Russia
    The Americans so want this to happen that they are running ahead of the engine. But what if, in this case, you can kill two birds with one stone - and Turkey will be punished and attack Russia. If Erdogan's insults to his greatness (in his opinion) have not yet completely demolished, then he will sit down and think about who and why it is needed for.

    According to the US military, the Russian and Turkish military are on the verge of a large-scale military conflict that could break out at any moment in the Syrian province of Idlib.

    Those who are also the instigators of conflict, recalls from childhood: But you won’t fight, but you don’t have blood.

    However, the Pentagon hopes that the conflict will be avoided.

    As usual, the chosen American nation made every effort to ensure that the conflict took place, but it didn’t flare up, apparently Turkish warriors, they can see for themselves what they can untwist and how many lives will cost them an adventure. I saw the alignment of forces in the Turkish Air Force and how many really modern cars are there, and I will also share one story. Once upon a time, a young sovereign country sent its pilots to study in Turkey, the commanders who sent young people to study at ASs and paid a lot of money for it, finished off one old pilot, a fighter flying, who said, "what did you want in Turkish aviation, "Units are allowed to fly in difficult weather conditions, and takeoff landing is not a pilot."

    The Syrians are in their own land, and the Turks are invaders in a foreign land. And the blame lies with Syria. this is the joke "Syria has attacked Turkey." This is how the Poles scream "The USSR unleashed WWII." Soon, the Turks will demand a contribution from Syria.

    Secondly. if we nevertheless clash with the Ottomans not childishly, who said that it will be long? We repeatedly beat Turkey in past centuries. Or became cowardly ancestors?
    They will not be able to close the straits. The mighty fleet will go to the bottom. Aviation will not be able to fly into the air. Is anyone in doubt?
    We do not need the territory of Turkey. Only directly the straits and the northern regions of Syria. It is quite doable and real.
    Five days was enough for Georgia, there were also "straits" - the Roki tunnel. But then Shoigu did not lead the army.

      And better, we need cooperation with Turkey. Increased flow of goods, and mutual benefit. And let all these military campaigns be a thing of the past. I hope Erdogan understands the price of his ambitions and we can find a compromise with Turkey.

    and if without trolling and essentially? those who oppose the legitimate (supposedly) power with weapons in their hands - in the opinion of the Ministry of Defense of Russia and local users - are terrorists? then it turns out that in the Donbass terrorists or something, or what? or is it not working there, is it working here? double standards and hypocrisy turns out ..

    Everywhere they have double standards and the United States is probably in the first place in this matter. But the caliphate in the vast territories of many countries, plants of its ideology, they tried to build and spread not in the Donbass and in Lugansk. There is no point in discussing this topic, there were a lot of these discussions. But in any case, in Donbass and Lugansk, people live on their own land and their opinion is important and should be reckoned with.

      I don’t think there will be an embargo, just Russia will do everything possible so that its citizens do not rest in Turkey. This is good because if you manage to get tourists from these countries, hotels will reduce prices for local tourists. Because Europeans spend more than Russians, and although their numbers will be lower, hotels will still earn the same and lower prices for local tourists. It's good.

      Turks occupy former military bases, then the Syrian army enters there
      Turks supply equipment to the militants and then the Syrians burn it
      Turks throw the most combat-ready militants - the Syrians grind them

    The Indians sensed something, something was wrong in this western hemisphere.
    The absence of a hint of the presence of primordial mind in wildlife.
    As something similar arose on this continent, another meteorite fell or Yellowstone exploded again. Still, this process is so subtle that it did not give a chance to even meditate with people like them in mind. Therefore, the natives were sincerely glad the Europeans visited their region. But, a place over time, so much, it seems, adorned the chelvekoff in the western hemisphere, that their right hemisphere began to fantasize all kinds of nonsense. So the representative of the pindagon confirmed this. But the Turks will start a war with the Russians, according to his considerations, after the next patrol, this is right after the foundation is laid for the third power unit in Akkuyu, which will take place after pumping the second billion cubic meters of gas through the Turkish Stream, etc. etc.

    Here recently, “Russian and Turkish brothers forever” sounded from all sides. The mention of the art of the Turks on our land was filled up with minuses .... Well, all right, who will remember the old ..... In this situation, the weak link is likely to suffer - Syria and its army .. The Turks will knock it out of their positions and we will hope for this and stop. Without the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces, the SAA hardly succeeds in fighting against gangs, and even more so with a regular army. Of course, the Russian Federation will express concern over escalation, state a 101 warning, will not let a truck with tomatoes pass on the border, will return something else to the plane with tourists ... Well, for this, the Foreign Ministry also exists to come up with formidable phrases to cover up the state’s insolvency. It’s not just that the military, even the diplomatic, will not decide on the conflict .... It was once that the Turks were afraid to even look north .... Now, they don’t even smell of authority in the region

      They may have been better among the Syrians? And, by the way, not the Turks (the Turks want to build their own state not to fight), but the terrorists and they are already defeated.
      There is also infa that the squabble at Erdogan and Fidan began. The latter behaved very incomprehensibly during the failed overthrow of the Sultan (perhaps he was one of the conspirators). Who knows, maybe soon we will not count one of them?

    According to the US military, the Russian and Turkish military are on the verge of a large-scale military conflict that could break out at any moment in the Syrian province of Idlib. However, the Pentagon hopes that the conflict will be avoided.
    Well, like, we have nothing to do with it.
    First, Turkey was deployed on the neo-Ottoman path (they forced the EU to unscrew the Turks out of turkey after so many years of promises), then they put in the head of state a "horseman without a head", just pumped up by neo-Ottomanism and a thirst for power. Further, they whipped on the ass and they jumped. Well, since the headless horseman, they surrounded him with the necessary advisers. One of them, the head of Turkish intelligence, Hakan Fidan, graduated from a magistracy in the United States (it was not clear what he was doing during the attempt to overthrow Erdogan), Gulen's chick (as well as Erdogan), a well-educated person, unlike Erdogan, could well lead Turkey. But headed by Erdogan.
    Since the neo-Ottoman project (according to the Americans), had to lead inadequate. Because they can scare their neighbors (they say he is violent, can start a war), he can be easily controlled at the same time (he doesn’t have his own head, he uses a stranger: the one next to him, for example, the head of Turkish intelligence Fidan.
    So whether the war is going to happen or not does not depend on Erdogan. He is being led into the dark. Therefore, he rushes from side to side: he threateningly declares that he will start a war (this is similar to the influence of Fidan, read: USA), then, not seeing the fear of war among others, he himself starts to panic: help, obey the agreement.
    He demanded Gulen from the USA, so his receiver sits nearby - Hakan Fidan.

    I’m a coward, probably. I don’t want to fight for the Syrian oil fields and the freedom of the Syrian people did not rest against me (it’s time to cover the booth). I was especially surprised by the above statements about the old name of Istanbul, Mount Ararat, the Bosphorus with the Dardanelles and so on. Do you want Turkish blood? But how do you have to shed your own? Didn’t have to help Erdogan, let the Turkish military dump him. No one canceled the economic levers. If started to push, then push to the end.

    Turkey has no chance against Russia, everyone understands this, except for Erdogashka, but they will taunt him in every way, and then they will just throw everything and their own people, in order not to bring the matter to tragedy, will simply be overthrown and that’s all, nobody needs a war with Russia, and Turkey even more so.

      Yes, most likely he also understands this, because he apologized.
      Another thing is that he became (more precisely, he won the competition) the "train driver" who must race along the rails of neo-Ottomanism. He does it with undisguised pleasure. That's just defeat is not included in his plans. He did not want to stand alone with Russia, but he didn’t really want to stop the train either.
