The United States supplied weapons to Syrian militants

The United States supplied weapons to Syrian militantsAccording to the newspaper "Sight", commenting on the speech of President Barack Obama at the military academy at West Point, a spokesman for the US administration said that the United States supplied weapons to the Syrian opposition and are going to consider "the possible role of the American military" in Syria.


“We clearly said that we are providing military assistance to the Syrian opposition. We armed the Syrian opposition. We do not specify what this support is, ”the representative said.

As notes the publication, while this information is not confirmed by other sources.

Earlier, the US publicly recognized only deliveries of "non-lethal assistance" to the commanders of the Syrian Free Army, which, in Washington's opinion, was supposed to "enhance their capabilities" in the fight against government forces.

“Non-lethal assistance” may involve a fairly wide range of goods - from medicines and food products to body armor and communications equipment.

Now the US openly admitted that they supplied the Syrian opposition with weapons. "We not only want to continue to increase (the size of the military) aid to the Syrian opposition, but also to discuss with Congress the possible role of the US military in these efforts," the administration official said.

On Wednesday, US President Barack Obama promised the Syrian opposition to increase support, adding that the US "should not send American troops to this civil war."

Earlier, media reported that Obama is considering a bill that will give the US military the opportunity to train the rebels. In addition, the United States can supply man-portable air defense systems to the Libyan opposition.

In turn, Moscow expressed concern, urging Washington not to repeat past mistakes.

    In addition, the United States can supply the Libyan opposition with portable anti-aircraft missile systems.

    and again they will wait for something like September 11th?

      So this does not go to the grandmother - everyone knows everything, only they are silent. Never news.
      3,14.n.d.so.si.ya I openly engaged in the supply of weapons to terrorists of all stripes since Afghanistan (if not even earlier).

      September 11, the case of US intelligence, a fact almost officially proved. A precedent for the next aggression of mattresses in Afghanistan.

      like September 11th, they don’t need to wait, they themselves need to cook it in order to justify the invasion.
      In fact, they even side the lives of their fellow citizens if they are involved in profits from possible invasions of other countries.

      On the account of September 11th. Consider all the rot of the State Department’s policy, led by the monkey, I won’t be surprised if it turns out that they themselves did this to free their hands.
      PS Sory, that is off topic.

    "The United States supplied weapons to the Syrian militants" - but who would doubt it, in my opinion they themselves did not hide it. So, with a clear conscience, we can supply weapons to South-V Ukraine, and sell them to all US opponents in the world, regardless of the sanctions)))

"We not only want to continue to increase (the size of the military) aid to the Syrian opposition, but also to discuss with Congress the possible role of the US military in these efforts," the administration official said.
    In my opinion, Russia also needs to expand humanitarian and other assistance to the legitimate friendly governments of Syria and New Russia

    . This is not a country but a gang of jackals. Which parasitize and exist at the expense of other countries. I don’t understand why the whole world is silent. It has long been necessary to blunt them. Or the leadership of all countries sits tightly on the hook of the CIA and have their own profits from this.

    Who would doubt that ... that the conflict is supported by America ... their ears stick out wherever blood flows under rants about mythical freedom and democracy ... after their clumsy and absolutely stupid approaches ... from the ruins remain ... even not remotely pulling on a democratic society.
    Therefore, our slogan should be one: maximum support for Syria ... put the fleet on the raid ... declare a number of areas prohibited for militants under the auspices of the protection of the export of chemical weapons or the actions of any missions ...

    Sorry, America was also revealed to me ... The deliveries by the Americans of weapons to the Syrian Basmachi were never denied.

    Here is the ATGM BGM-71D TOW 2 with a tandem warhead, optimized for hitting armored vehicles with dynamic protection.

    This ATGM was produced under a contract of January 1990.

    Here is a video of a shipment of contraband weapons for opposition forces intercepted by the Syrian military in Dara'a province. Most of the party consists of Yugoslavian 82-mm recoilless gun M60 and 90-mm grenade launchers M79 "Osa" with shots, besides them, several RPG-22 and Milkor MGL-1 are also visible in the video. Considering that the RPG-22 and Milkor MGL-1 may also be of Balkan origin (RPG-22s are produced in Bulgaria, and a copy of MGL-1 is produced by the Croats), it seems that someone bought a large batch of weapons in the Balkans for Syrian militants and ship it across the Jordanian border.

    The Sudanese government sold weapons as Chinese, incl. MANPADS FN-6, large-caliber sniper rifles M99 and ATGM HJ-8, as well as its own production to Qatar, which organized its delivery to Syrian anti-government armed formations in Syria via Turkey. The transportation of weapons already "belonging to Qatar" to Turkey was carried out by transport planes of Ukrainian airlines. True, about the FN-6 MANPADS, despite the helicopters shot down from it, the militants complained that most of them they received inoperative and that two MANPADS even exploded in the hands of shooters , killing two and injuring four more.

    Well, and that, someone, you think, from their allies will begin to condemn the United States. No one! Geyropa, so she’s not used to it when they stick something to her. The Japanese disown, we say you do not understand, we have our own culture, original. Australia and Canada will require a new sanctions package. And the people of the USrikoffs shake everything, within the framework of: - democratization of the democratic peoples of the democracy of each democrat separately from other democrats like democrats.

    Nice verse.

    Here Obama cries bitterly. He wanted to play the ball, Only Putin (howling - not howling) He does not give the whole globe of the earth, He takes away from Obama, He erases the dirt from Ukraine. Then Obama sobbed. He ran for help. Here the six jumped and cried to Vova: “Why are you hitting Obama? Do not give a ball in your hands? Erasing blue from the ball And do not respect Bander? Right now, give the ball to Obama! "And she stomped her feet:" You can’t object to us! You and I are now enemies! ”Vova waited a little, And then he said like this:“ Your friendship is not needed - Two cents is worth it. I won’t give the ball, at least dine, Although you all cling to me. So far, none of you have touched slightly. But I don’t need to be angry: I can bite. You played enough, And trampled upon the borders, Smeared with blood and dirt, Flooded with different scum, Drove rockets, That white light is not visible. No, you don’t think so! God will not leave Russia! I will wash the globe! Who is the world? Come with me!

    Obama makes one non-excusable mistake after another am . When he was in his first reign, he acted very thoughtfully and extremely cautiously, in the second term, as I understand it, he decided not to childishly. The constant failures in foreign policy, the curious statements of his administration indicate that Obama seems to be in demobilization soon and he decided to show off. That's just so that the head and ass would not hurt from such a party. And the president smear his forehead with green stuff left to wait long !!
