US Senator: The Pentagon’s program to train fighters to fight ISIS is a failure

29
US Senator and GOP presidential candidate Lindsey Graham said in an interview with Sputnik that the Pentagon’s program to train fighters from moderate opposition forces in Syria is a failure.




Within two months, the US military managed to train almost 60 people from the so-called moderate groups to fight the Islamic State militants.

According to Graham, Syria lacks suitable recruits who could increase the effectiveness of the fight against terrorists.

"The program of the Pentagon to train fighters to fight the IG is a failure," - quotes an excerpt from an interview with RIA "News".

According to the CBS television channel, 42 spent a million US taxpayers dollars on military training of the Syrian opposition. Currently, US intelligence agencies are checking around 7 thousands of volunteers, and previously it was reported that Washington plans to train up to 5 thousands of people annually at bases in Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Jordan.

      42 million US taxpayers spent on training Syrian opposition

      Apparently, the effectiveness of training Georgian rangers was also evaluated only in the amount of evergreens and bad smelling .....

        The Kurds, who are the only US ally in the region, are bombing the Turks, the so-called "moderate" opposition is Al-Nusra (the Syrian division of Alcaida, the US has good allies).
        And the words of the United States about the failed training of moderate militants against the backdrop of the statement by the head of Alkaida, which is ready to unite with the IG to fight against the Western coalition, played with bright colors. , stick in the wheels set, and interfere with the passage of cargo for Syria, in Bulgaria and Greece.
        Well, Americans do not want to live peacefully and in a good way, they will be in a bad way.
        China started an economic war against the USA. And who supported the Uyghur extremists with grants, and the Americans?yes
        China plans to launch its yuan-denominated oil contracts in October.

        Goodbye petrodollar ...tongue And SWIFT too ...tongue Here is the return from the Chinese and flew in, but it was not necessary for the Chinese to stagger the exchange.
        PRC State Council Premier Li Keqiang said that the Chinese international payment system CIPS will be launched before the end of 2015. "By the end of the year we will complete the development of the Chinese international payment system - CIPS", - RIA Novosti quotes him.

      Well done Americans! I think that they have offices in Langley, one for training IS terrorists, and the other for training fighters to fight IS, are on the same floor - it would be more convenient to coordinate their actions! laughing

        Prikinte fellows - spent 42 million, and trained 60 people. Here is the deal! They don’t fight there against ISIS! Either everything is always a failure, and they are stupid, or so it was intended. With Dill everything turns out with them.

    “The Pentagon’s training program for fighting IS is a failure”



    Something our rifleman has ripened everywhere, and moderate people are trained, and in Ukraine, they train, everywhere they train revolutionaries and other representatives of the 5th column.
    As they say, take it on your own, so as not to bend when walking.

      The senator simply hints and sets the stage for increasing funding for programs to combat the created “global threats”

      And I'm about the same. About 30 years ago I was interested in: “How is that - they have a defense budget that is an order of magnitude larger, but the output is parity?” Now the question has changed: "Or do we have geniuses, or do they steal from them like ours did not even dream of?"

    damn it, the CIA is already losing its suitability. but to train militants in trifling matter, a bag of drugs, a suitcase of bucks and shouting that on the other side you can kill and rape everyone with impunity. and the crowds of orcs themselves will make 3.14ndos proper.

    Pentagon Syrian Moderate Opposition Force Training Program Fails

    Finally they begin to recognize at least that. Perhaps, before the elections they will also talk about the fact that now it’s not worth rushing to try to remove Assad.

    Yes, they spend more, billions go away, of course, not all by themselves, there the Sonatovites, the Saaudovites, and the Soviets are throwing up. Jews are generally a special conversation, well, you can say they pulled the Second World Nation out of the loop, now they bomb the Arabs themselves!

    Well, the senator surprised, but he did not know that all these "messes" had as their main goal "cutting the dough"! In general, the example of the best students of V.I. Lenin is on the face: “The main thing is to get involved, but it will be visible there ...”, for more than seventy years now and “get involved” wherever you fall, and they offer the world to disentangle the consequences! Business panimash and nothing personal!

    Train potential IS fighters to fight IS ??? What is the senator dissatisfied with? Everything goes according to plan, and if he was not dedicated to the details, then this is his problem!
    PS
    EMNIP, out of 60 trained fighters, 47 have resolved into various radical groups - read IS, the rest are missing.

    All these programs are aimed at one thing, to overthrow Assad, these 60 trained warriors successfully ran into the igil. So the only effective fighters from the igil are the Syrian army, Hezbollah, the Kurdish militia, but the mattresses by all means put sticks into their wheels.

    What is 42 lemons spent ... Pennies. ChBK Schnick from Gray Waters, she is an academy who pays from 125-225 pieces a year. She filled the paper in 2006m. They only take their bastards, the British or the Americans. Two hundred was worth

    I’ve ignored the American project, if we wanted to destroy it, we would have shut off the supply of money, weapons, didn’t buy the stolen oil from them, the project would have ended by itself, but in fact it’s the other way around, they sow a house everywhere, then lend it and live off interest , and dictate your terms, nothing new

    ... and here somewhere between the two training units angry ... "fighters", there are these notorious 42 million dollars! A cool cut, we never dreamed of! And the senator is outraged because they did not share with him!

    The only US program in Syria is ISIS. The EU does not even stutter on the possible return of refugees to Syria. Therefore, the issue is resolved, the EU in the subject. The program “Refugees in exchange for cheap oil” suits them while young, rich and educated go to the rich countries of the EU. Then a chauvinistic wave will inevitably rise in the countries of "Old Europe". The sending of unnecessary material to Eastern “Europe”, which wants to close, will begin. Schengen, apparently, will soon be canceled.
