24

US military aircraft appeared over eastern Syria. According to Syrian information sources, this is due to an incident with a car in which soldiers of the American occupation contingent were moving.


Middle Eastern media reports indicate that an American army vehicle allegedly ran into an explosive device that was on the side of the road between the cities of Al-Haseke and Deir ez-Zor. The explosion, according to the latest information, thundered in the area of ​​the village of Markada (Mercada). The American contingent is said to have lost four of its servicemen as a result of the car bombing. The translator was also killed.

In the media of the Syrian Arab Republic, material appeared that US troops cordoned off the Mercada area, raised a military Aviation.

After a while, Western media began to publish materials with reference to representatives of the American military command in Syria.
Colonel Wayne Marotto, spokesman for the American "anti-terrorist" coalition, tweeted that the reports from Syrian news sources are "not credible."

At the same time, the American military did not deny that the number of American army personnel had increased in the indicated area. A company of about 100 American troops is sent there to "patrol". She uses six Bradley armored vehicles and other vehicles. Colonel Marotto did not name the reasons for the increase in the number of military patrols.

      Yankees, go home!

      And Vietnam was not, and Korea. And just from nowhere "plastics" (analogue of our "zinc") did not go to America from anywhere. Washington is a city on a hill, the embodiment of democracy and so on blah blah ...

      My father in Afghanistan, then a major, in the course of a "friendly booze" put the US Colonel in hand-to-hand combat at 9 (at the ninth, Karl!) Second of full-contact sparring ... Two minutes later, the second colonel at the FIFTH (fifth, Karl! ) second.

      We, the sons of "those" majors, are no worse. Let all America remember this..

      Py.Sy. He fought on the tatami with the Americans, the French (French boxing is a thing !!!!), the Germans (they beat them especially hard), Poles and other world rabble. I did not lose to anyone, because I fought not like on a tatami, but like in a war - "Kill the enemy or the enemy will kill you" ... .

      I was not taught to win in the ring - I was taught to survive. Therefore - not like Jackie Chan (with all due respect) ten minutes of waving his arms and legs, but instantly and deadly..

      Py.Py.Cy. Sigal likes most of all in cinema - we were taught about that. Blow = death.

          United Germany. At that time, “thanks to“ Humpbacked Dog. ”But the stench -“ Westerners ”, from Cologne (the Bundeswehr sports club is an analogue of our SKA, where I and ALL champions of the Union period started), career officers, if cho.

          This was not a tournament that is shown on TV on Match TV. It was a spetsnaz get-together, in which I was lucky enough to participate at the peak of my physical and moral form. In many respects - thanks to the patronage of his father, who himself was not against it, but somehow undignified for a major to fight with the boys on the tatami - he would have killed ... Now, in his mature years, owning the Internet, he tried to find at least an amateur VHS ... No ... But I was not alone there - they beat the Germans, Inglish, French ... They (so that they would not be banned from VO again) stunned from the results ... None of ours fought for more than 30 seconds and won "dry".

            Around the same time, in the magazine Soldier of Fortune, I read an article by our mercenary in the French legion. He argued that after the collapse, many Russians fell into the wild geese and from that moment they dominated the legion in hand-to-hand combat.

              This is true and fact. The Legion does not ask for a passport. I am from that generation, but, for a number of reasons, I live and work here, and not looking for luck anyhow. But I personally know four people who went there. Three in "load 200", and the fourth drunk says something about Africa, sober is completely silent. So "across the sea - a heifer is worth half a half ...." Well, hereinafter ...

    Well, the Yankees have several bases there (Eastern Syria). Who and when from the military leadership will tell the press about the deaths of servicemen, and name the reasons for the increase in patrols (route, time of movement, number of forces and means). And what did they want, they shoot in hot spots and blow up ?!

    She uses six Bradley armored vehicles

    what Bradley on a tracked platform, or is MRAP already the same as the BMP?

      In France, children are still frightened by "Cossacks" ... although Alexander even paid for the wine that the Cossacks drank in "shantans".

      They will wait ... They will scare the "Russian paratroopers" ...
      We will not pay - we will cut. Silently and harshly. We'll pay the old bills.

          good The Strategic Missile Forces is what prevents American soldiers from peeing on our flower beds ..In the meantime, only Polish and Baltic ...

          And on the "ground" - "RUSSIAN DESANTURA". I am not even sure, with my professional knowledge of English, that the word "DESANTURA" is somehow translated into English. Only with a blow - they understand immediately. In Moscow, in the mid-90s, he explained to three English people in the ring. One and a half minutes for three.

        The tsar did not pay the debts of the Russian servicemen. The commandant of Paris, Count Vorontsov paid (out of his own pocket).

          But we paid ... The second time we will take into account the mistakes - we will not pay for the trophy wine, we will indeed rape one and a half million German women and glue the toilets with pictures from the Louvre. Well, so that, if they are accused, so at least for something.

    Strange, the message about the losses is allegedly not reliable, but the aviation was raised, an additional company was sent. Probably to check the curbs from the ground and air?

    the troops of the American occupation contingent moved

    For "patrolling" there is sent a company of American military numbering about 100 people

    It would be nice to kill the entire company of the occupiers.

    Mending is one thing ...
    As our foreman said, in order to engage in hand-to-hand combat, a fighter must:
    Proe ... lose a machine gun, pistol, knife, waist belt, shoulder blade, body armor, helmet on the battlefield.
    Find a flat area on which not a single stone or stick is lying.
    Find on it the same gouging of opponents, who wants to join the battle.

    Fighting, not always "on a dashing horse, with a saber in hand."

    The worst thing in such cases when patrolling (engineer reconnaissance) does not know where it will come from, where it will explode, whether there will be an ambush during mine clearance, what type of explosive device.
    The best way to save your fighters is to learn from the mistakes of others. Therefore, if the fact of undermining the American patrol took place, you should get information about the type of explosive device, the method of mining ...
