The Pentagon called the amount of losses of weapons and equipment in Syria


There was evidence of how much the United States during one of the periods of the Syrian military campaign suffered losses in weapons and technology. These data became known from the report of the Inspector General of the United States Department of Defense.


In the fight against terrorist groups (namely, they prefer to use this interpretation in the Pentagon), the total losses in armaments exceeded $ 700 million. We are talking about weapons that the Americans supplied to Syria to their "allies." Among them are Kurdish armed groups, as well as the forces of the so-called “moderate opposition”.

Weapons worth $ 715 million, as it turns out, were either stolen or abandoned during the battle, eventually reaching the enemy. There are episodes that Americans have previously reported. For example, this is the training of representatives of the Syrian "opposition" to fight ISIS terrorists (banned in Russia). After significant investments in training and equipping these units, their representatives eventually, along with American weapons, often transferred to the camp of the same ISIS group in the area of ​​the Syrian city of Raqqa.

It is important that the Pentagon, reporting on the amount of losses during the transfer of arms to the ATS, speaks of the period 2017-2018. Other time periods are not yet considered. But it is reported that for the current year, the US military is ready to transfer weapons to the “allies” in Syria for another 173 million dollars. Ankara is actively opposing this kind of transfer, saying that the United States continues to "arm terrorists." Recall that in this case, terrorists in Turkey mean Kurdish troops.

    The figure is not transcendental, but not "penny." It would be interesting to compare with ours, but who would call them? ... But the main thing, anyway, is not the amount, but the political influence and economic factor ....

      For the Americans, the weapons that went to Syria are only losses, because the Americans did not achieve their goal here. no

        So believe the statements of the Americans? They lost what they did .. Deliberately delivered weapons and trained ISIS under the guise of fighting ISIS .. Now they write off the "responsible for Syria" in the Pentagon at a loss to get a new amount from the budget and look fluffy in the eyes of the whole world - we are not to blame that they are fighting with our weapons, they stole it from us.

        Even as they achieved ... The oil fields of Syria are then under the control of the United States.
        Oil is pumped, taxes are not paid request

          That oil is a consolation prize so as not to look at all somehow. The main thing that they did not achieve was that they did not redraw the BV map for themselves and did not extend the gas pipeline from the Gulf to the EU to the detriment of Gazprom (read the Russian Federation).

            The US has not historically invested in large-scale infrastructure facilities. And here, too, they probably didn’t plan.

            it’s - yes, it “didn’t work out”, although before the intervention of the Russian Federation everything was so “normal" for them to take shape and shape.

              The Americans themselves certainly would not invest. The Qatari would pull the pipeline, with the blessing of the "roof", of course ...

        Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that thanks to revenues from Syrian oil, the United States supports its loyal armed forces, and Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said that the United States receives over $ 30 million a month from oil production in the Arab Republic. Americans even win.

      There is a nuance:
      data on how much the US during one of the periods the Syrian military campaign suffered losses in weapons and equipment. The Pentagon, reporting the amount of losses during the transfer of arms to the ATS, speaks of the period 2017-2018.

      And where does the printing press? Everyone has a printing press, but everyone can give a head start in issuing money. Sooner or later, this bubble should burst, virtual zeros have never led to good. And confidence in the dollar is constantly falling due to brainless scattering by sanctions. This is the road to nowhere for the penguinostan. They already sensed this and began to be careful, but they didn’t break the firewood for themselves, which would be enough for the sunset of dollar domination.

      Like money, yes. But as a material means ... I think that money can equip at least two full divisions with money. The closest equivalents are two completely destroyed divisions or a defeated army or a thoroughly battered army group.

      But if desired, everything can be found.
      USA in 2018, it was expressed in the sum more than 633 billion dollars, which is just 3,2 percent of explosives
      Russia for two years, from 2016 to 2018, Russia's military spending declined from 82,6 billion dollars up to 64,2 billion. dollars (as well as their share in GDP - from 5,5 to 3,9 percent).

    This seemed not enough for the Americans, so they decided to lose $ 173 million more. Turkey supplying guns to militants express US claims for the same apparently because of aid to Kurds? Americans and Turks in this regard are not much different from each other. Both states are jackals in Syria.

    It's good. This is what Americans understand. This is not morality, there is some kind of principles, or even democracy. These are grandmas! Lost in Waste!
    And they could have made health insurance for simple unemployed Americans, raised the unemployment benefits for blacks, for pensioners, again, to give out bonuses on Victory Day.
    And then - the evil tyrant Assad burnt everything, or even took it to himself. He was told in pure American language: "Gotta leave!"
    And he is fighting. And he took away the toys ....
