Pentagon on intervention in Syria: We are already experiencing some lack of preparednessGeneral Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (USCS) of the US Armed Forces, said he recommended helping to strengthen the Lebanese army by sending military instructors and speeding up supplies. weapons.


“We made recommendations on the challenges facing the Lebanese Armed Forces, Iraqi security forces dealing with a resurgent al-Qaida in Iraq, and Jordanians. We will work with them to help create additional opportunities,” Dempsey told reporters. at the Pentagon, reports Reuters.

A Pentagon spokesman said recommendations were made in recent weeks as part of a discussion with the US Central Command of a possible response to growing instability in the region. He also answered the question about the possibility of sending the American military to Lebanon. “When you talk about sending the United States Army to Lebanon, I mean a group of instructors, as well as accelerating the supply of military equipment to them,” Dempsey said. “This is about developing their combat capabilities, not ours.”

A Pentagon press secretary said that these efforts will come out on top in the framework of American military support provided to Iraq and Lebanon.

Dempsey also commented on the possibility of establishing a no-fly zone over Syria. He noted that the no-fly zone will contribute little to stopping the bloodshed, stressing that the Assad air force is responsible only for a small number of victims. "If we want to introduce a no-fly zone, and this is essentially an act of war, I would like to know a plan for achieving peace before we start a war," said Dempsey.

He also noted that any decision by the United States to introduce a no-fly zone in Syria would require tough decisions regarding America’s military priorities in the face of budget cuts and other commitments, including the ongoing war in Afghanistan. “We are already experiencing some lack of readiness,” said Dempsey. “We have forces that are on high alert in the Korean Peninsula region, in the Persian Gulf due to potential provocations from Iran. We are still actively involved in the fighting actions in Afghanistan. "

        Martin Dempsey said he recommended helping strengthen the Lebanese army by sending military instructors and expediting arms transfers.

        Go ahead. On the example of Saakashvili's army, we have seen enough how you "strengthen". fellow


        And Russia will strengthen in the present.

        Including:

        Russia, Iran and China assist the Syrian economy, and the regime of Bashar al-Assad conducts the entire business in rubles, rials and yuan, writes The Financial Times. This newspaper was stated by Syrian Deputy Prime Minister Kadri Jamil, who oversees the economy.


        According to him, the main allies of Damascus help Syria with international financial transactions and increase its credit limit. “It’s good when the Russians, Chinese and Iranians are behind you. These three countries provide us with assistance - political, military, as well as economic, ”said Jamil.

        He noted that Damascus directly linked the Syrian pound with the three indicated currencies, thereby leaving the cycle of the euro and the dollar.

        Jamil also said that vessels “flying the flag of Russia” supply oil products to the Syrian coast, which is under the control of Damascus. The deputy prime minister refused to give details.

        I am sure that Putin supported Erdogan's intention, after the protests inside Turkey recently provoked by Washington, to "throw" the Americans in Syria, while indicating Russian support for Ankara's further course to strengthen its regional role ... Today, the main thing for us is to save Assad, and tomorrow it will be tomorrow

    Quite an interesting terminology for American generals ... But I didn’t understand from the text what connection between the resurgent Al Qaeda in Iraq and the Jordanians - oh well. One thing follows from the article - the USA really wants to overthrow Assad, but does not want to spend a lot of money on this operation and is now facing a dilemma - they invested money in the project - there is no result. Significantly large investments are required - and again, without any guarantees. And throwing everything is a pity. The result is a slurred politics and a bunch of high-profile statements without concrete solutions.

If the maximum of what they say in the media is true, then, to be honest, I am proud that we are not giving up! And keep it up, and so it was necessary earlier (Iraq Yugoslavia), but earlier internal problems were more acute (

    Good afternoon!

    It seems to me that the Americans are specifically raising Alkaida in order to later explain to the taxpayer where the money goes. Like we fight terrorism and all that.
    Previously, they fought with Kamunism, now they realized that it was useless with Russia, because if the vine then the Russians would immediately grab onto nuclear weapons. And to explain why there are 2400 F-35s for warehouses in the warehouses for a fig cloud of dough.
    And most importantly, how beautifully they do it, There was a revolution in Libya, and now Alkaida has an anti-aircraft missile system, "oh, how bad it is, this needs to be corrected" and let's allocate another cloud of dough to fight this infection "
    And you say that in Russia the dough is sawed a lot, compared to the USA it is a "nursery".

        If you look at the last weeks, you can see increased inflation, this is due to the fact that the FRS turns off the machine, since this cannot continue until the end. Salafis can be used as meat, but it’s not serious, attacking China and Russia directly count kamikaze, it’s ridiculous to make a couple of terrorist attacks, I think that’s a little different.

    With the supply of weapons from the United States, it is not understood at all. The Congress of theirs, something that is not particularly burning, is not burning with the desire to supply weapons, is afraid to get to where it should be. At least yesterday, the media said so.

      Rather, the reason is the change in Russia's policy - the supply of weapons to terrorists can put an end to all international agreements on the arms market. Under Gorbachev and Yeltsin, a lot of different things were signed on the topic "this is possible, but this is not possible ..." and with these supplies they can "untie the hands" of Russia.

    Stuck, gentlemen Yankees, by the very "I can not" in a swamp "unipolar" world. Wherever they are single-handedly tried to solve political issues with the help of the American military force, an atmosphere of instability, chaos, terrorism and bloodshed was created (and is being created). Scattering their armed forces across all continents, untying there wars and conflicts, having spent astronomical sums on military operations, the Americans are forced to gradually change their military policy. We’ve overtaken from an excessive burden - this can be concluded. Well then these are good changes!

    I think you should not arrange euphoria from such statements by the Anglo-Saxons. In the evening they talk about a certain "lack of readiness", and in the morning they readily realize their plans. All their statements are outright lies in one form or another. So calming yourself in the process of confronting them is like death.

      This is not evacuated by the military. This is the evacuation of the embassy. North Vietnam lost the South, not the Americans.

      American forces were withdrawn on March 29, 1973. They have lost the war for public opinion in their own country. How the USSR "lost" the Afghan one, and Russia the first Chechen one.

It was not Russia that lost the first Chechen war, but the selling skins from the top, and our brother turned out to be a bargaining chip. When you write about such things, put the mouthguard in your mouth ... although what is there to write, it’s not me to look in the eyes, or to the guys who can stupidly “drop” for such nonsense. Do you seriously believe that we couldn't roll these devils? No, they didn't! Remember how they were released from Budenovsk and how from Grozny in 96 ... all of our people just waved then and could not do anything, damn it ... what does Russia have to do with it?

    The West can fight, only without suffering military losses, including at the hands of the enemy people. Recently, it has become WITHOUT ALTERNATIVE and this will destroy them.
    PS 30 ultra-Orthodox (orthodoxes make up 000% of the Israeli population) Jews took to the streets of Jerusalem, having a real battle with the police and the army, demanding not to call them up for military service, believing that the God-chosen elite should not risk their lives. Most of them do not work and live on government subsidies.
    WHAT IS EASIER: Do not touch the Hasidim or form "squads" if they are mobilized in the army?
    P.PS The USA faces many problems that at one time led to the collapse of the USSR.
    - Wars that cannot be won (Afghanistan, Iraq ... Iran?).
    - Uncontrolled military budgets.
    - Deficit and external debt that cannot be supported.
    - Intractable, unreceptive, corrupt TOP, incapable of reform.

But - the Plan will explain to him - and will establish this zone. That's a shame. Come on.

    Former al-Qaeda member Sheikh Nabil Naim released a stunning testimony in a video claiming that the leader of the group, Jabat al-Nusra, the main military force in Syria trying to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad, is an agent of the CIA.
    Sheikh Nabil Naim, considered the historical leader of the Islamist jihad movement in Egypt, led the Al-Qaeda Safwa training camp, where he met Osama bin Laden. Then, Naim, together with al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, moved to Sudan and was officially recognized as a member of al-Qaeda.
    Being directly involved in the assassination of the President of Egypt, Anwar Sadat, after the attempt on the life of Hosni Mubarak, Naim was imprisoned and released only after the fall of the Mubarak regime. Naim subsequently renounced violence and now exposes his former comrades as being on a paycheck at the CIA.- http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=zY0epAWtQ-k
