US changes military training program for “moderate Syrian opposition”

34
The US Department of Defense states that it intends to revise the program of military training of the armed wing of the so-called "moderate Syrian opposition." American edition The Wall Street Journal writes that the changes in the program are associated with the "need to increase the effectiveness of the fight against ISIS." What kind of "effectiveness of the fight against ISIS" is generally referred to, if the "moderate Syrian opposition" directs all its attacks on Syrian government troops? .. Anyway, since when did the "moderate Syrian opposition" oppose ISIL?

US changes military training program for “moderate Syrian opposition”


What will be the changes in the training program? If you believe the Pentagon, then, first, there will be a significant reduction in funding (at the moment, according to TASS, The United States has already spent about half a billion dollars on training and arming the “moderate”), and secondly, American instructors will train small groups that have previously gained combat skills. In addition, the Pentagon is going to give the right to “trained” representatives of the forces they support in Syria to challenge aviation support for striking the enemy. And coalition aviation must again miss ...

TASS with reference to the news agency Associated Press reports that Washington is considering the possibility of including instructed representatives of the “moderate opposition” in larger armed groups — for example, in Kurdish troops. This is supposed to be the “decisive factor” in the fight against the so-called Islamic State.

        We are not in vain negotiating with Assad and the Syrian opposition, that is, we will soon help both of them in the fight against the igil, so that the mattresses will soon have no excuse for war except to openly recognize the igil and help him. Especially in their Western newspapers are already beginning to encourage igil.

        Good phrase, Vadim, but given that,
        Washington is considering including instructed representatives of the "moderate opposition" in larger armed groups, such as Kurdish units.

        it becomes "interesting", the Americans did not flirt with the Kurds before, and there are many political reasons for this. And the change in the order of actions by the Americans clearly indicates some new steps. And here your phrase is very appropriate.

        Like this.

          Here, here, this is the whole American sandwich. The Turks, NATO members, are bombing the Kurds, and the striped Kurds, "like reinforcing" ... so they are allies with the Turks in NATO. And Assad is fighting with ISIS, and the Kurds are fighting with ISIS, but with Assad, they have no terrorists. This is what strains the mattress. It is necessary to confront the Kurds with Assad. And ISIS will clean up what remains, after which striped allies and ala ulyu will enter there.

        They will not leave so easily, this is evident from the intention to "change the opposition's training program." They do not give up their goals, they just change tactics. The states need controlled chaos in the Middle East, this is the only way to fish in troubled waters. Taking advantage of this chaos, the Americans will be able to undermine the European economy by eliminating competitors. The chaos is also aimed at getting Qatari gas supplies to Europe, removing Russia from the gas market.

    Earlier, US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter said that the training program for the “moderate” Syrian opposition faces difficulties and only 60 people participate in it. The head of the Pentagon argued that such a small number is due to a "thorough examination and selection process" of candidates. At the same time, the head of the US Central Command, General Lloyd Austin, speaking last Wednesday at a hearing in Congress, admitted that of these 60 rebels, no more than directly participate in hostilities five people. lol

    From the American press:

    "The Pentagon has already tried to train the Syrians according to NATO standards, but the money was wasted. According to American instructors, their training system is much inferior to both the Russian and the Soviet. The first, according to intelligence, is based on the application of a sapper shovel to the trainees, the second - on There is also a mixed course taught to the Syrians by officers of the Buryat armored division by cadets.According to General Johnson, graduates of such schools, entering the battle, literally seek death, because those who did not show themselves well in battle are forced to take the course a second time.

    In this regard, the US military is going to announce a competition in Israel among former sergeants of the Soviet Army to fill vacant posts in the camps where Syrian opposition fighters are training. The only problem is that the Israelis from somewhere became aware of the fate of the first American instructors: they put their pig legs in their asses and forced to accept Islam.

    The Pentagon is at a loss ... "

      It has long been clear that the so-called Syrian Free Army is nothing more than armed and supported by the United States, the Israeli regime and Wahhabis, groups of killers and fanatics created by them to destroy Syria and its people. And they are not even going to fight against their like-minded ISIS, Al-Nusra.
      Syrian puppet "rebels" - USA: We will not fight Al-Qaeda!
      A group of "moderate" Syrian rebels, trained by American instructors, announced their refusal to fight the militants of the Nusra Front, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, Al-Arabiya TV reported, citing the publication of the British newspaper The Independent.
      The rebels from the so-called "Division 30", created, financed and trained by US military instructors, also declared that they were opposed to the US Air Force launching airstrikes on the Nusra Front militants.
      http://9tv.co.il/news/2015/08/07/210454.html
      The main "problem" of the Middle East is the existence there of fanatics of the Wahhabis and the allied Israeli regime who support and arm all the reactionary and "evil" forces in the region.

    At the same time, the head of the US Central Command, General Lloyd Austin, speaking last Wednesday at a hearing in Congress, admitted that of these 60 rebels, no more than five people are directly involved in the fighting.

    And the rest, in his words, have disappeared (died). But this is unlikely, probably somewhere in the geyrops now they are storming border crossings with passports of supposedly peaceful Syrian refugees. Did they receive money from American instructors? So he was used to buy "passports of peaceful Syrians" from the Turks and for a ticket to the coveted Geyropa.
    Now one more question for this Lloyd Austin: "And how many natsikals trained by the Americans at the Yavoriv training ground in / in the Ukraine will be in the zone of the so-called ATO? And they will fight victoriously there. I foresee that - 0. So the work at SW. Comrade McCain is still a lot.

    Incorrect title - necessary US changes ISIS military training program - all the same, they cannot be distinguished through a magnifying glass.

    And so, of course, you need to change! Taught, taught - and learned 5 people (the rest either fled, or, as mentioned above, fled to ISIS).

    By the way, ukrov is also taught; this is a bad sign - no matter how they scattered after "training" laughing

    The United States is attempting to transform disparate Basmachi gangs into an organized military, and most importantly political, force. Therefore, they are also introducing them into the Kurdish camp for the purposes of recruitment, reconnaissance and subversive activities. ISIS will soon recede into the background.
    Apparently they will try to create a confrontation in the Assad + RF format, against the opposition + USA + Israel + Gulf monarchies.
    Naturally, for the media there will be Assad VS opposition, and all the other "players" will be in the shadows ... and the scapegoat for everyone will be the isis
