    It would be necessary, you can accidentally, like last week, hook and Turkish NP.
    Nobody invited these invaders to the Syrian land, and the war will last permanently until the Turks withdraw their last soldiers.
    These are, as it were, the heavy-armed observation posts of the Russian army to be scattered across the Kharkov and Mariupol regions, in order to protect the Russian-speaking population.

    I wonder where the 52-state coalition formed by the United States to enter Syria "to fight ISIS" ended up.
    Trump has proclaimed many times that the US has eliminated ISIS. Today in Syria, without mentioning the "coalition",
    only the United States and Turkey have steadily taken root (with Israel on the side, although it was not officially part of the coalition).
    Where are the rest of the members ?! There is silence in the world. Since the "coalition" was only on paper, for the entry of the United States with Turkey into Syria. And the Turks, still attached to joint patrols with Russia, organizing and covering their barmaley, fighting against the Syrian army. Now, instead of ISIS, Russia has to fight against pro-Turkish militants.
    And the US is already trying to incite the Kurds against a Russian military base in northern Syria.

      The coalition was to fight ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
      After the defeat of the main ISIS forces in the city of Mosul, Iraq in 2015
      most of the coalition countries withdrew their troops from the Middle East
      (or left small garrisons in Iraqi bases).
      Only the United States fought in Syria (the capture of the capital of Raqqa),
      Turkey (capture of the city of El Bab in the north-east of the province of Aleppo),
      Russia (capture of Palmyra and Der-Zor),
      England (southeast) and France (east).
      Then the French left, two years ago and the British. The Americans remained
      in Kurdish areas.

        Everything is correct. The United States shared the risks with its allies. Now the risk is minimal - allies from home.

    We have three Orions in stock, so use the ubpla to the maximum, close the airspace with them in the place where the militant protrusions are especially active, and hollow from the drones!

      .So agreed who equalizes the relief

      Something does not look like an agreement, and there is no one to negotiate with, the Turks are leveling where it is possible to fence off a certain amount of land near the border, the Americans are leveling the oil fields, and we are leveling the barmaleev - somehow the agreement was not drawn up very fairly ... sad

    In Syria, it seems to some "babays" that it is possible and necessary to fight endlessly. Why haven’t the daily flights of the Aerospace Forces been adjusted so that daily, hourly, these “barmaley” troops do not feel safe. A link flew out, worked on the reconnoitered targets ...
    All of them have already shown their loyalty. Pro-Turkish militants, just armed anarchists ...
    At the moment, there is no official comment from the military department on the participation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in striking militants in the province of Latakia.

    And they should be so that they know and see that it is fraught with just going into a foreign country.

    Well, that's right, why just keep an air base there, let the pilots gain practical experience in the combat use of aircraft weapons. It will come in handy in the future, otherwise you suddenly have to bomb the corridors to the Dniester and the Dnieper, but there is no experience, not order.

    Everything there needs to be aligned from the barmaley to the very border with Turkey.

    Still, nothing is changing in our tactics in Syria, which is a pity. I think it would be cheaper to use our Orion UAVs, and even safer. It is still not clear what the Turks can transfer as air defense systems to these about the Turkish armed formations.

      Yes, the tactics were organized normally there - the Syrians work on the ground, and the Russian Aerospace Forces supports them from the air.

      It may be cheaper, but our pilots also need to gain combat experience somewhere. There probably already 75-80% of the flight personnel have completed practice.

      These, of course, can be worthy of such a dirty trick, but then ours will begin to spread all this Idlib gadyushnik in spite of Erdogan's calls to stop the SAA.
