Pentagon: reports of desertion in Syria of trained opposition fighters are a lie

25
On Wednesday, the Pentagon issued a refutation of reports about the transfer of American-trained opposition fighters to the side of the Islamists in Syria. According to the official, this information is a fake launched by extremists themselves in order to discredit the efforts of the United States, reports RIA News.


Representatives of the Syrian "moderate" opposition.

Earlier in the network appeared messages, supported by photographic material, about the transition of "moderate" oppositionists to the side of terrorists along with weapons.

“We believe that these messages are false. We have no information that the statements about desertion are any true at all, ”said Pentagon spokesman Jeff Davis at a briefing. He also noted that the weapons issued to the fighters are still with them.

According to Davis, "social media reports about the desertion of oppositionists are spread by the Dzhebhat al-Nusrah group, a local Al-Qaida unit that is actively trying to discredit US efforts."

As previously reported, 70 fighters trained by the US in Turkey also entered the territory of Syria. According to the Pentagon, they must fight on the side of the "moderate" opposition with both the IS militants and the troops of Bashar al-Assad.

    Here's how easy it is to burn.))) Now it’s even clear to the near-by that the opposition’s war with Assad is the work of the United States. They themselves admitted that they were preparing the opposition in the camps for war with Assad.))))

      === “We believe that these messages are false. We have no information that the allegations of desertion are at least somewhat true. ”===

      And they NEVER have information about what they don’t like, where they were offended, burned or pierced.

        That's people! They lied to the most honest Yankees! Well, the training of the militants has already gone through the payroll, they almost burned the laundering scheme - 500 million dollars for 60 students.
        They were just taught to do jogging every day in full ammunition, for health, they ran away, but the distance was long, until they came back! laughing

    to discredit US efforts

    What efforts are the United States blowing once again. The armament and training of those who later joins the ranks of the IG, as the American general admitted at a hearing in Congress. To a specific question - how many are currently fighting on the side of the "moderate opposition" out of those trained? He was forced to answer that 5-6 people. What else and how can one be discredited if everything is so in the e.r.p.

      There is an alcoholic down the street, all pissed-calls. Everyone closes his nose from him, and he tells them this is such a cologne.
      In this case, the Pentagon behaves the same.

        You're right. Figuratively speaking, the United States has already sniffed at its “cologne,” and therefore cannot understand why some countries turn their nose away from them.

    “We believe these reports are false. We have no information that the statements about desertion are at least somewhat true, ”Pentagon spokesman Jeff Davis said at a briefing.
    We believe, "that is, they don’t know, but hope ... And therefore, everything that does not meet their hopes is a lie? It's some kind of voluntarism. Having rolled their eyes, American officials simply drive propaganda cliches into their heads of listeners about their impeccability, despite the lack of grounds for such allegations. Directly according to Goebbels, a lie repeated many times becomes true. And they have listeners in our country. Just yesterday on TV Mr. V. Ryzhkov represented the United States as a manifestation of nobility, humanism, democracy, freedom of speech and responsibility The ability of the United States to recognize and correct mistakes was especially noted.I watched, listened, and was amazed how this traitor, who appears to be a professional historian, is being kept in the university of the capital of the state, which he hates and despises?

    Of course lol ... The most truthful truth can only be those whom God has chosen for missions on planet Earth! And it cannot be otherwise. crying I started to cry ... How easy it is for them. White can be called black and vice versa. And everyone is simply obligated to believe, because in another way they’re not crawling. And the whole trouble lies in the fact that with the cowardly and tacit consent of the whole world this is happening! That's why there are different Libya with Syria and Ukraine, and this European helplessness in front of problems ...
    FALSE rules the world, because it is necessary to answer for the truth, and a lie ... a lie has become the guiding light of those who consider themselves to be "exceptional", God's chosen.
    And even the smallest truth that catches this lie in contradictions can be the weapon that can stop this bacchanalia on the planet. You just need to start believing in her hi

    The United States burned its office for anyone.
    A statement, at a minimum, proves that
    1) a war against government forces in Syria is waged by the United States by mercenary forces
    2) "opposition" is not part of the people of Syria, protesting against the current government - they represent the interests of a foreign state
    3) in the current situation, the United States can be considered the sponsor of the terrorists - the fact that the militants trained by the United States do not fight on the side of the terrorists requires evidence that they do not have.

    discredit US efforts
    I wonder what kind of effort it is and what it will lead to. After all, efforts can be made sitting on the pot. I think that it is precisely these efforts that the Americans are making. So soon we will see another batch of muck from the United States.

    70 more soldiers trained by the USA in Turkey entered the territory of Syria.

    Turkey and the USA! Some cook, others provide territory!
    Some want our participation in a coalition in the fight against ISIS, others seem to be thinking about a gas pipeline and a gas hub!
    But some interfere with our participation in the fight against IS (although they want our participation in the fight against IS) and order their "sixes" to ban the passage of our "transporters" to Syria over their territory, and yell heartbroken about our "military presence", while others are preparing and provide territory for training militants against Syria!
    It’s not clear how that!
    You are already there Turks and Yankees, your mother, decide whether you are with whom! and against whom are you all?

    And to Turkey - "my" question - for providing both territory and recreation facilities for the rabble that fought with us in the Caucasus! It was? There was a stigma in the gun!
    But if it’s very serious, then the state was sick of it, by God!
    Perhaps it’s time to do something with them!

    "Exit" has moved a bit, so I write!
    Happy to all!

    It turns out that General Austin is a liar
    Instead of the five thousand fighters of the Syrian opposition that the US planned to train to fight the Islamic State (the organization’s activities are banned in Russia - ed.), Only five people participate in real clashes, reports TV Center. This was reported to the Senate by Army General Lloyd Austin.

    And indeed, there is confirmation of the lie of the general
    On behalf of the Pentagon, US Department of Defense Colonel Patrick Ryder spoke to reporters. He told the audience that the number of trained SSA fighters is much larger than General Austin called, and is not “four or five” people, but as many as ... nine!

    According to General Austin, in the course of a few months, the United States trained about 60 fighters of the so-called moderate Syrian opposition in Turkey to fight the Islamic State (IS) group. In July, they were transported to Syria, where for several days they were defeated by the forces of the Jebhat al-Nusra group. The Pentagon has allocated more than 41 million dollars for their preparation.

    No, they don’t have a war at all, they run shouting, machine guns put up scorching Chechens in the air, they haven’t seen this, they are not noisy, they are not yelling a fight, they would know the Chechen company there how the war looks like.
