Military Review

Leo prepares to jump. Leo jump?

Some events of recent days make it possible to judge that the coalition of Western countries and the monarchies of the Persian Gulf is up to something in the Middle East. After the victory of the Syrian government forces in El Quseir and popular exultation there and after the militants of the "opposition" once again asked Washington weaponsand more, but Barack Obama "did not rule out" the possibility of military assistance to the rebels, analysts began to speculate about the imminent "international" intervention in Syria. In large-scale exercises, started in Jordan, even the scenario of a chemical attack is being worked out. Along with this, the Syrian ambassador in Amman is threatened with expulsion.

As reported by the agency "REGNUM"Jordan’s Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh warned the Syrian ambassador to Jordan to stop criticizing the host country. The fact is that Ambassador Bahdzhat Suleiman often criticizes Jordan, for example, calling this state a puppet of the United States and Israel. In addition, he criticized Amman for holding a meeting of the Friends of Syria there.

Nasser Judeh stated that Suleiman “went beyond the borders of diplomatic norms and practices” in “offensive” statements about the host country. “This is the last warning,” Judeh told the Associated Press. - Without listening to him, Suleiman risks becoming “persona non grata”.

9 June in Jordan launched military exercises "Eager Lion" "Impatient Lion." (Their name in the Russian-language press is also translated as “The Lion Prepares for a Jump” and “The Vigilant Lion”).

According to the resource Israelinfo.ru, armies of eighteen states are involved in these maneuvers: Jordan, USA, UK, Bahrain, Canada, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Iraq, Italy, Lebanon, Pakistan, Poland, Qatar, Turkey, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The exercise will last until June 21. Israel was not invited to them, writes the portal.

US forces are represented by a contingent of 4.500 troops. During the exercises, F-16 aircraft and Patriot complexes will be used.

As transmits "RT", from the side of Jordan, thousands of military 3 take part in the maneuvers. This writes "Al-Hayat." It is also reported that during the exercise will be worked out "non-standard military scenarios in the region," in particular, the interaction in the conditions of use of chemical weapons. Participants will also work out search and rescue operations and actions in the event of an influx of refugees, the release of areas and objects occupied by terrorists.

Jordanian General Auni al-Adwan refuted the allegations that the teachings allegedly related to the situation in Syria. He noted that the maneuvers "are held in areas remote from the Syrian-Jordanian border."

In addition, the leadership of Jordan asked the United States to leave part of the military equipment that will be used on the maneuvers. The official representative of the government of the country Mohammad Hussein al-Mumani told about this edition. Prime Minister Abdullah en-Nussur said "the interest of Jordan in strengthening its air defense forces."

Channel Euronews indicates that the maneuvers were condemned by Russia, accusing the participants of swelling the conflict in neighboring Syria. However, in Amman itself deny it.

“I assure you that the Syrian opposition is not participating and will not take part in these exercises,” said Major General of the Jordanian Army Auni Al-Adwan, mentioned above. - No foreign troops will remain in the country after the completion of the exercises. And the Patriot complexes and F-16 aircraft will remain only if asked by the Jordanian government. ”

"Days. Ru" remind that the American Republican Senator John McCain recently proposed a plan for a military strike against Syria. He said that the United States could prevent Assad’s victory over the opposition if they strike cruise missiles at government forces. McCain noted that it is necessary to create a safe zone in Syria where a transitional government could work. To this end, the United States can arm the opposition forces.

Last week, American television channels, citing unnamed sources at the Pentagon, reported that the US intelligence services spotted Russian military ships in the amount of 3 (three) pieces heading for the Eastern Mediterranean. They are not bringing peaceful goods, but weapons for the Syrian President’s army. Through American satellites, containers were loaded onto ships — presumably with weapons. In the US, they believe that warships deliver C-300 air defense system components to Comrade Assad.

Victor Ruchkin ("A red star") cites the words of John McCain: “We should not assume that we must destroy every air defense system or send thousands of soldiers to change the situation in Syria. We have a limited selection. We can use long-range weapons, such as cruise missiles, the purpose of which will be the Assad air force and rocket launchers. ”

In addition, according to the senator, it is necessary to give the transitional government the opportunity to work in a safe area: “We can protect this zone with Patriot missiles. And we can organize a full-fledged operation to train and equip the Syrian opposition forces. ”

There were voices from Britain. Foreign Minister William Hague did not like the victory of Assad in El Quseir. He even noted that Damascus is thus making it difficult to organize an international conference on settlement in the SAR in Geneva: “Government forces have consolidated their positions. This reduces the chances that a conference in Geneva will be held and will achieve success. This reduces the likelihood of concessions to the negotiating regime and the likelihood that the opposition will be able to be persuaded to take part in these negotiations. So the development of events in Syria is currently not conducive to our reaching a political and diplomatic solution. ”

V. Ruchkin cites the losses of militants in El Quseir: around 2.700 people were killed and more than 300 were wounded. About 1.000 people were detained by government forces. Approximately 600 militants burst out of encirclement.

Analyst Alexander Gorbenko ("But") does not believe that some of the statements of the Americans and the begun teachings in Jordan are a direct path to intervention in Syria. The journalist notes that similar exercises (“The Impatient 2012 Lion”) were held last year. In addition, "it is difficult to imagine that the Americans and their NATO partners are ready to get involved in a fight that will not be as easy as the Libyan operation." The author writes that the Syrian army is the most efficient in the Arab world, it is full of modern types of weapons and has good combat experience. Finally, the situation in Syria itself is fundamentally different from the situation in Libya: after all, this time Russia could not be persuaded to “stand aside.” Well, in the appendage: in the European Union, only two countries - the United Kingdom and France - remain states that insist on helping the Syrian "oppositionists." There are also voices condemning possible intervention or the sale of weapons to militants.

As for the USA, they, the analyst notes, prefer to give the actions to their “not too careful partners”.

Then why different loud statements? Why hint at military intervention?

A. Gorbenko believes that such statements are no more than typical practice for Americans. They try not so much to act as to influence the information space. For example, this way you can give confidence to the forces that act in American interests. Simply put, show them that they are “not abandoned.” The beginning of the exercises on the eve of the peace conference in Geneva is the right time to try to convince the world community that Washington is still interested in overthrowing the “Assad regime”.

Thus, Washington and the Gulf states may frighten Syria with a "Lion" or frighten Obama with statements about possible military assistance to the rebels. Assad responds with a victory in El Quseir, and Moscow not only covers the map of aggressors with C-300's trump card, but also works out the option of placing peacekeepers on the Golan Heights.

    I believe that the West will no longer actively climb into Syria. Firstly, it’s too late, secondly, there is no noticeable special preparation (more of a game for the public and bravado), and thirdly, very soon, there will simply be no one to help the West in Syria.

        I doubt it. A lot of time has been lost already. Control over the situation has already been lost. Lost more favorable opportunities and time for the invasion. The coalition against Assad has already cracked. The Saudis with the Qatari seem to be at odds, Turkey is already more occupied with its riots, Assad is already finishing off the bearded. Israel has already realized that Assad is better than the new Somalia. Israel will certainly destroy weapons convoys for Hezbollah, but nothing more. In many European countries, the force variant is already openly rejected, for example, in Germany. France, too, has become quiet. Only England is still pouring aggression. But they too will come to their senses soon, especially in light of the heyday of Islamism in Europe itself. And in the coalition for Assad, everything is united, quiet, calm and unequivocal.

          A moot point. And if they establish a "buffer zone" of 500 square kilometers? On the one hand, the border with Jordan is not very densely populated, on the other hand, Assad may not immediately climb up until it understands militants throughout the country. And at this time all sorts of squads crawl out of the “buffer”. And you can recruit all evil spirits forever. Then it will be difficult, you will have to save strength, and considerable.

        The thing is at what level the assistance of these countries will end and of course the position of Russia.
        I do not think that in such a crisis period, countries are strongly interested in a war directly.

    I never understood Arabs. One nation, but divided into more than 20 states. There are some feudal principalities. But there was an Arab caliphate in history, the most powerful state of the early Middle Ages. These Arabs taught Europeans the rules of hygiene, comfort. The Arabian science of those years was in its prime. And now they have become hostages to feudal rulers.

      Well, what supposedly Arabs, who even now have problems with hygiene, taught Europeans hygiene is complete nonsense. Arabs seized the lands of Rome (Byzantines) and the Persian Empires, where there was science and hygiene. The Arab invasion threw civilization back a thousand years. If the Egyptians built palaces and pyramids thousands of years ago, the Arabs built slums, and the lining of the great pyramids was torn off. In Rome, there was already a sewage system, when the Arabs wiped their asses with sand, as is actually the case now. If the knowledge and discoveries of astronomy, medicine, etc. were really made in many respects in Damascus, Baghdad, Alexandria, but all this was done when the Aryans owned these lands, and the Arabs roamed the desert and pooped camels. Of course, the Arabs, or rather the elite, having captured scientists, architects and doctors, increased their level, but the general level of civilization fell. If Roman science went further and in Europe, over time, the atomic nucleus split and mastered near space, it was only thanks to the Arabs that did not happen in Alexandria and Baghdad, where instead of schools that study astronomy and chemistry they created madrassas, where they raise the back to heaven glorifying obscurantism.

        As far as I remember, the era of rebirth in Europe began precisely with the fact that scientists and other figures, massively immigrated from cities in the Middle East in a short period of time. And not just immigrated.

        Anger at the Arabs? Everything was done by others but not by Arabs. I will not prove anything to you, because with someone who has driven into his head prejudices where there are no brains and ordinary logic. When did the Aryans own these lands ??? Do not carry nonsense.
        Was in Saudi Arabia, but the government is trash there. When they saw that I was a traveler, a guide called me to visit me, then a taxi driver said that they were hospitable people. I saw how Arabs live, firstly there are no poor people, secondly the state supports its people there, thirdly there are clean cities, and most importantly, it is impossible to obtain Saudi citizenship.

          Let's compare the degree of education per capita, why consider who is crap and how to wipe it. Education in the classical sense, without theology and prejudice. Let's compare the level of cultural development of the population, discuss the results in the form of specific achievements. The fact that there are many petrodollars and cities and an irrigation system are built on them is thanks to the occasion. Yes, and all this was designed by European architects. Of course, there are Zoroastrians there in the form of small nomadic tribes and individuals, here they are carriers of ancient knowledge, the rest are all white-rekkeses of the hermist - including the sheikhs.

        That would not be throwing such stupid things, keep in mind the following: the crusaders managed to conquer in a couple of centuries only (!) Jerusalem and "good" goals were accompanied by the usual "Christian-Christian sins." Cultural excellence was obviously for the Arabs. And Rome and the Aryans did not run here and next. But what happened to this Civilization - study for yourself.

      But do not you be surprised at the borders of their "states"? Where, except of course the brothel of all the bandits, have you seen the borders drawn on the line? What does it mean? There are no such countries. The border of any country is the fruit of centuries of labor, mistakes, right decisions, wars and accidents. They reflect the flow of rivers, the outlines of the hills and the roads running around them, flow from cities and stretch to hundreds of other sources of attraction-repulsion.
      And the British drew these ridiculous borders, creating "countries" for the loyal leaders of gangster clans. Without creating the concepts of honor, fidelity, and mercy, or rather, completely distorting them and having lied over the centuries, the Arabs survived their states. States exist in the minds and hearts of people, and then they spill over onto the map. How wide, how strong and pure hearts are - so great is the country.
      But to whom should an Arab be faithful? Its rulers for thousands of years shamed in his soul. There is no abomination not accomplished in the Arab states of antiquity a thousandfold. Therefore, the Arab ... do not care. Give me money ... that’s all.
      Amid all this meanness, among the scum ocean, Syria with its Assads suddenly turned out to be ... scary! First of all, because Assad suddenly declared - he lived with you and will die with you. I won’t leave anywhere, I’ll fight. Arab leaders have not done so for thousands of years! They ate themselves, caught women in hundreds and thousands, sent others to death, killed out of a whim, not noticing deaths ... all this - yes. They stood with their people in a year of bitterness - not a thousand times! Maximum - they died on the run, not having time to vilely flee, while the army was dying behind. Asad we understand, for us his behavior is natural. But it is absolutely, completely alien to the Arab rulers. Forgotten, strange things began to awaken in the Arabs ...

        As a rule, Shiites, including Alawites, to which the Assad clan belongs, are of ethnically Iranian origin, and therefore have Aryan blood, hence the courage with perseverance. A typical example of Palestinian Arabs who are not fit for anything in the fight, is to destroy a bus with schoolchildren. Here are the Hezbollah fighters (Shiites of Iranian origin) who were able to repulse the regular parts of Israel and are now helping Assad very successfully.

It makes no sense to treat her, she is already mortally ill with the virus of Islamism and terrorism, and to continue investing in a dying project is a waste of resources.

Waiting here is simply criminal ..... Syria is one of the last frontiers ..... and we must act instantly and decisively despite the barking, screeching and bleating of the Western powers. Russia, having previously agreed with Assad and in alliance with China and Iran, should introduce diverse peacekeeping forces without any UN resolutions, only on the basis of mutual agreements ..... under the motive of “Forcing Peace” and expelling foreign gangs of opposition forces outside Syria, but simply their destruction.

    I never understood Arabs. One nation, but divided into more than 20 states. There are some feudal principalities. But there was an Arab caliphate in history, the most powerful state of the early Middle Ages. These Arabs taught Europeans the rules of hygiene, comfort. The Arabian science of those years was in its prime. And now they have become hostages to feudal rulers.



    Truly you are right. Arabs were always at the height of science. But their trouble is that they rejected Christ as the Son of God, and therefore the grace of the world left them. Before Christ, they were strong. After the crucifixion, they fragmented.
