The lack of IS air defense weapons allows Americans to freely deliver humanitarian aid to the Kurds

American transport workers can safely deliver cargo to Kurdish military formations, since the IG radical group still does not have anti-aircraft weapons, reports RIA News.



“We still have no evidence that the IS has air defense systems”, - said yesterday in the US administration, so the C-130s transport aircraft, accompanied by fighters, do not need.

Earlier it was reported that the American military transporter "dropped by parachute weapon, ammunition and medicine for the defenders of the Syrian city of Kobani. " Information confirmed the command of the US Air Force.

On this occasion, Secretary of State John Kerry said: “It would be irresponsible and morally very difficult for us to turn our back on the community that is fighting the IS”. At the same time, he stressed that the policy of the United States to the ruling regime of Bashar al-Assad has not changed.

“We spoke with the Turkish authorities - me and the president - and made it clear that this is not a change in the policy of the United States. This is a crisis moment, an emergency. ”Said Kerry.

Earlier, American politicians held direct talks with the leadership of the left-wing Democratic Union party, which is part of the Syrian Kurds. Such meetings have not been held for a long time.

      A helicopter and a transport plane fly, as it were, at slightly different altitudes. The plane for MANPADS is practically inaccessible.

          The landscape of Afghanistan and Syria is strikingly different. There is no need for a plane in the desert to descend to low altitudes.

      When the first plane of mattresses is shot down, then they will declare that the IS is an air defense system, and this is how the intelligence of mattresses works disorderly.

      Truth? Alas, there is no truth in the media right now. The Kurds are being squeezed, they are fleeing to Turkey, and about their counterattack, this is nonsense so that the Kurds would not fall.

      You overestimate the power of MANPADS. The maximum that is enough for it is an attack aircraft. Bomber and transport aircraft fly too high to get them (except for their shot-down during take-off and landing).

    How does the IG attract the people that the conquered territories are growing so rapidly? And only Kurds can resist them.

      Kurds? They lose their territories and throw tales of counterattacks in the media. The front of ISIS is stretched, the number is from 15 thousand to 25 thousand plus the former military of Saddam who have military luggage many times more than that of the Kurds. ISIS is fighting against the Iraqi Armed Forces, Kurds and Syrian Armed Forces plus useless US bombing.

    so no one will shoot down their planes, all the same, and the city with the humanitarian and without it will take this city anyway. Here the State Department wants to prove itself a peacemaker simply.

    This is some kind of puzzle, the knot of contradictions is getting more and more complicated. Here "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" is no longer going to pass. To pull the resources of the West from Ukraine to the Middle East is beneficial for us, but strengthening IS is a challenge for Russia.

    The Americans contradict themselves, not so long ago they supplied the same Islamists with air defense systems to fight Syrian planes and helicopters, and the Islamists shot them down ... So it’s not so simple here, apparently the USA started another = combination = hence this = leak = ....................

    Already there are reports that ISIS have embarked on training flights on the MiG-21 and -23. They should shoot down the S-130 as 2 fingers, only if there were no escort fighters. Apparently, the Kurds decided to merge, starting with stopping the dispatch of humanitarian aid, as soon as the air defense suddenly appears.

    By the way, here is some interesting information:
    Russian-made Iraqi Mi-35 attack helicopter was shot down by American portable air defense system FIM-92 Stinger, the Vietnamese website Soha News claimed on October 7. It was the first of two lost helicopters of this type (the second was shot down from the Chinese FN-6 MANPADS - approx. “VP”).
    In the area of ​​Al-Baiji, where a helicopter was shot down, Islamic militants with the Stinger complex were identified. During the war in Afghanistan between 1986-89, 270 Soviet planes and helicopters were lost as a result of the use of the "Stingers" (approximately 1000 missiles were handed over to the Afghan mujahideen).
