US strengthens its contingent in Syria to counter Russia

33

On September 18, the US Army announced that reinforcements were sent to northeastern Syria, including Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, modified Sentinel radars, Aviation, Apache attack helicopters and other military equipment. Such measures are caused by an increase in the number of conflicts between Russian and American patrols in the Middle East.


The New York Times reports.

The "last straw" was an incident when Russian and US armored personnel carriers collided. The American side puts all the blame on the Russian Federation, presenting the case in such a way that the Russians, for no reason, no reason, rammed an American armored car, wounding seven fighters. In this case, the US military was injured.

Seven American soldiers were treated for concussion symptoms at their base in Syria and soon returned to duty.

- writes NYT.

Now to the contingent of the coalition forces, which includes 500 US military personnel, another 100 people will be added. The United States attaches great importance to the introduction of replenishment into Syria.

These actions are a clear demonstration of the US commitment to defend the coalition forces.

- said the spokesman for the Central Command Captain Bill Urban.

      You can't ride much on Bradley, and it's not wise to chase columns on fighters.

    As many as 100 people have added? Well, this is probably only Rambo, otherwise, I'm afraid, such an increase will go unnoticed, unless only by the American media ... tongue

    Seven American soldiers receive treatment for concussion symptoms

    The American authorities would have given a concussion, you see, the brains would have fallen into place and stood up ...

    Sometimes I catch myself thinking that I envy the army of the light elves. In terms of combat experience and actions in various non-training conditions. The warring army is in good shape, maybe more than the army of peacetime. True, if we and the Chinese begin to trade in such lawlessness, under various far-fetched pretexts and scams, then the PPC balls will come.

      Experience is different. The main experience of the US Army is that of special operations. For a war with a serious enemy, he is of little use, although of course a fired soldier is much better than one who has not fought. However, much still depends on whether this is a victorious experience. The United States has just acknowledged its defeat in Afghanistan and is now discussing with the Taliban the conditions for keeping face while withdrawing its troops. Mattresses are leaving Iraq under pressure from Shiites and Iranian shelling, for which they could not even avenge. I don’t think that after these companies there is a high fighting spirit in the American army. I watch American TV shows and in almost all where veterans of Iraq or Afghanistan are shown, they are not shown as heroes. As a rule, they are shown as sick people who fought for some unknown reason and with whom it is not clear. By the way, the topics of protection by the US army and the drug trafficking CIA also often slip through. In general, the attitude towards these wars in American society is generally negative and the army feels it.

        The experience of their special operations also does not cause much delight. what Here is to buy a local prince with his nukers and order the objectionable pZhalusta. But it is worth sending where the specialist is, so are the tears of fellow citizens and the laughter of rival special services.

          Well, there are two ways. Failures always cause laughter, but Americans have been conducting special operations all over the world for decades. Africa, South and Latin America, Asia. Of course, there are many failures for dozens of operations performed and they usually talk about them. But the experience of such operations in all corners of the world with mattresses is still large and varied.

        ---
        Don't judge the army by the TV series. Well, who cares about an Iraqi or Afghan veteran who
        returned completely normal and began to work in a normal civil
        profession? Spectators are interested in psychopaths, all kinds of social cases.
        The plot cannot be cooked without them. laughing
        Any combat experience is valuable. Who learned to shoot accurately, to run across correctly
        under enemy fire in a minor conflict he will not be at a loss in a big war.

          It's not about that. It is about the perception of these veterans by society and their positioning in this society. And this is precisely what the mass media allows to judge. Moreover, the mass media forms this attitude. And, accordingly, the prestige and fighting spirit of servicemen is closely related to how they are positioned in this society.

        Yes, you are right, there are no full-scale wars, and thank God it is not foreseen because it is clear why. And what remains? - (special operations), which quite allows to develop and maintain in good shape all the structures of the country's army. Plus, there is a political and economic benefit. The circle is really very cannibalistic and will work until they start to scuffle the mattresses with dirty bombs. But they have accumulated a lot of experience for a full-scale war, only the logistics of deliveries are worth it. Plus, even so, the good work of their special services within the framework of the task.

          Well, I sometimes read their military experts and they just say that their army has become too sharpened for anti-partisan actions and actions against the enemy, which is much lower in terms of equipment. For example, they have too many light brigades on Strikers and too few heavy brigades with abrams and raving. Serious lags in the development of armored vehicles for such brigades, etc. Again, a large program of reforming the Marine Corps is now starting with, again, a decrease in the number of heavy weapons in it.
          But what about the big war is far from a fact. China has started too early and this threatens the entire Western world order. It is hardly possible to stop it without a big war. The US is already gradually forming the infrastructure in the region for a possible confrontation. Again, China can strike first by attacking Taiwan. And the United States cannot afford this. Tch about a big war, I would not promise. The story is too long. hi

            Large wars in our time can quickly flow into the world Arctic fox. Therefore, they will not be. At least between the krupnik, and as far as Taiwan, it is unlikely that they will block the sea access to Africa and China and the tiger cub was blown away.

    Russia is fighting terrorists. At the request of the legitimate government of Syria. Mattresses are fighting against Russia illegally in Syria. I think it is obvious who is the terrorist in this situation.

      So the mattresses were created (the international coalition against terrorism), within the framework of which they are engaged in the same de jure force in Syria. juro enlisted the support of the country's legitimate leader. Which the states do not recognize because it interferes with their plans to breed terrorism under the booty of Europe and profit from protecting this Europe from (terrorists). And because we are in many ways a state-controlled country
      then we have synergy in diplomacy and hurray patriotism for the inner vani. Here's a squiggle. The right of the strong in full scope.

    There is no room for sarcasm. Yes, they will promote their interests, BUT WHY IS THE RUSSIAN ARMY IN SYRIA? If the Syrians are officially ALLIES to us, then what the hell are the Americans doing? And whoever bombed Syria in a row, both NATO and Israel, well, we -officially, at the "request of the government" If we are there_ means there are no other places. We are not part of the coalition The position of the Russian government is surprising.

    Let them intensify.
    The US is illegal there as an invader.
    In the event of a serious escalation with the United States, and not necessarily in Syria.
    The US contingent in Syria can be destroyed, with the CAA forces and no matter what weapons systems.
    Russia, to its allies, has every right to provide appropriate weapons systems.

    I won’t understand: yesterday, in an article on VO, the time of article 16.33, they wrote: "... The Chinese press is discussing the decision of the American administration to reduce the number of US troops in Europe and the Middle East, including Syria and Iraq ...". So which article to believe? - a complete contradiction, can anyone explain?
