Military Review

The US military expressed doubts that Turkey would allow the US Air Force to fly from the Incirlik base against Russia in the event of a conflict in Ukraine

43

The United States continues to talk about the situation with NATO's eastward expansion and what military assistance the United States can provide to Ukraine "in the event of an attack on this country by the Russian Federation." Moreover, the rhetoric is largely reduced to the fact that a direct military conflict with Russia should be ruled out. This is evidenced by the absolute majority of experts, including the military. And such judgments are voiced not only in the media, which are opposed to the Biden administration, but also in those that are "designed" to reflect the policy of the current American administration - the Democratic Party administration.


One of the areas of discussion: where in general the US Air Force can direct its combat Aviation into the airspace of Ukraine, if, nevertheless, an order is received from the command to use the US air force in an armed conflict against the Russian Federation. The ideal option for the US military is to consider airfields in Poland, the Baltic countries, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey. However, the total number of US Air Force fighters from Romania to Estonia is no more than two dozen. There is "hope" for the Incirlik airbase in Turkey, which houses an impressive American military contingent, including the US Air Force fleet, but there are problems here too.

The American military doubts that the Turkish authorities will unequivocally allow US aircraft to fly from the Incirlik base if the Pentagon decides to use it against Russia in the event of a conflict in Ukraine. The argument here is the fact that Washington and Ankara have very tense relations, including because of the unresolved situation with Fethullah Gulen and American sanctions for the purchase of the S-400 Triumph air defense system from the Russian Federation.

That is, flights from the Incirlik base are also questionable. Then, if the US Air Force participates in hostilities, it will be necessary to use aircraft from bases in Germany and Italy. But, firstly, there is more than 2,5 km from the Spangdalem base (there are more than fifty US Air Force fighters there) in the FRG to a potential theater of military operations. Secondly, it is not at all a fact that the governments of Italy and Germany will unanimously support such flights.

The option with an aircraft carrier group, which is now in the Mediterranean, is also being considered. But while American fighters fly to the southeast of Ukraine, for example, from Cyprus, they will be ready for their meeting, including Russian air defense systems on the southwestern borders of the Russian Federation and Russian interceptors over the Black Sea.

    It's okay.
    Russia is also not sure that Cuba will provide its territory for the basing of Russian aviation in order to control drug traffic and stabilize migrant flows in the Caribbean.

    So it's a draw.

        based on the results of remote political consultations held on December 21 between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Cuba and Russia

        "During the fruitful exchange, the coincidence of positions characterizing the historical relations between the two countries was confirmed. Mutual interest was noted in continuing to strengthen coordination in international forums for action in defense of multilateralism, international law and the UN Charter."

    And the minke whales are already going somewhere to fly ???
    Strange assumptions / assumptions ... again, journalists, the media, climb in front of the locomotive?
    However, there is no doubt about the existence of such strategic plans ... but they are not often and loudly talked about, usually.

    Think correctly. The warnings of the Russian president can be ignored and ignored; a missile strike against the source of danger to Russian statehood is impossible!

    Maybe the Turks are smarter and guessed that they can fly at their airfield, and if we "miss" and hit Constantinople. fellow fellow
    And since Russia seems to have been "awakened" completely, then trying to "poke a stick at us" again may be too costly. yes angry

    In which case, the Americans are evacuated from Turkey. Quickly.
    The Russia-YUSA interconnection is already all scheduled, when, under what and in which case.
    Our brothers and their brothers are - brothers.
    Turkey is not their brother.
    There she is in the swing.
    A reason is needed. They seek and find.

        They can and will return where, but whether it will be a question to anyone, and it does not matter where they left from on the last flight. It would be better to think about it.

    The American partners should not be so gloomy about the future. The Turks will send their troops to Bulgaria and will be the US guarantor for using the Bulgarian airdromes against Russia. As says with one shot, two hares.

    According to the agency, the head of the Pentagon Lloyd Austin gave the order to temporarily leave the strike group in the water area, "to provide support to the US allies and partners in the region."

    Interestingly, Erdogan is against the new Crimean War and therefore sold the Bayraktar to Ukraine to help a peaceful settlement? If you do not know, he was going to create a common fleet of NATO Black Sea powers, too, out of peace-loving and friendly feelings for Russia?

    I do not understand why our people are silent? The attack on the Russian Federation is openly discussed - where are our journalists, experts, politicians and the rest? Where are the official statements about the inadmissibility of such rhetoric, that NATO by its actions is proclaiming our military response and that if, God forbid, what happens, then those and those are to blame for this?

    Times have changed.
    Turkey itself walks on the edge of a knife.
    A kind of sacred sacrifice that suits everyone, like a sacrifice. But it does not suit everyone as a state.
    There are many reasons. Geopolitical, technological, industrial, ideological ... mass.
    Sacred sacrifice.
    For America, for Israel, for China, for Syria, for Europe (yes, for her), for Russia ... (ellipsis).
    Russia, of course, is like a new Wailing Wall for those who beat their heads against it.
    But, the fact is the fact.
    In the process of redistribution of local spheres of influence, it will not break off for many reasons.

    The last thing that the Americans can use in the conflict in Ukraine is their own aircraft, because it is very expensive and the result will be disastrous. All they can do is take out their embassy on a transporter with a request not to shoot down the board.

    If they survive, it is indicative, they will sit down as "mercenaries" for "life" in the camps in those climatic conditions to which, in order to get, the United States does not even have icebreakers ...

    And Rejepychu now, with the lira rate, tourists from, and tomatoes in the Russian Federation, and the transit of gazuli to the EU, will be closer to eggs than the interests of close relatives from the office for the production of UAVs ...
    And then, quite unexpectedly, SUDDENLY, the activation of the PKK in Ankara and Istanbul, the death of the command staff of the Turkish Armed Forces - all of a sudden ...
    For our bomber and the pilot of the Russian Aerospace Forces, did they receive a response in the form of minced meat from the bus from the group of flyers, for the Mi-8 shot down in Karabakh, did several Turkish generals fatally land?

    Let's see. Opportunities have existed since the 1960s, now even more so. The most important thing is that the order is given clearly and distinctly. And on our way, not 5, but already 125 columns of "Tabakka waiters" lurked in anticipation .............. I think there will be a lot of work for the internal troops in the event of a real batch. Not to mention that brushwood is ready at different borders, firstly in Syria, our bases will definitely be attacked by "unknown planes", in the Far East the Japanese will definitely not repeat mistakes during World War II and will make our life as difficult as possible, a hearth will be created in the Caucasus on the territory of Armenia, in Transnistria, there will immediately be a batch, the Kaliningrad region will be attacked, from the territory of the former republics in Central Asia, their partners in military exercises can strike our underbelly, submarines can strike from the side of the Arctic Ocean, and this is not the whole range of threats. Therefore, in the light of the above, there is only one way out - to hit right off the ground in the jaw, that is, with special ammunition it is scary, powerful, inevitable ... Well, or observing different conventions to fill your population this time not with 25 million, taking into account modern weapons. During the storming of Berlin, many of our soldiers died, and it was possible to level the cities with the ground with aviation and artillery, taking into account the fact that these animals have done on our land .......

    What nonsense? Do you know a lot of people who hear the interlocutor from the first time? They don't owe you anything. Now raise anyone in the EU at two o'clock in the morning, ask, he will answer - Russia will attack Ukraine and threaten Europe. But it should be the other way around - he must answer - the United States and England want to seize Ukraine and unleash a war in Europe.
