Ex-head of the CIA: it is necessary to stop the flights of Syrian aviation

Speaking in the Senate, former CIA director David Petraeus called on Washington to act more decisively against the Assad regime and its air force, reports Look with reference to Defense News.




Petraeus also said that the Syrian president should be forced to abandon the use of barrel bombs, "otherwise the United States would stop the flights of the Syrian air force."

According to him, Syria has become a “geopolitical Chernobyl, the negative effect of which threatens to have consequences for decades like a nuclear catastrophe.”

“The longer we allow it to continue, the harder the consequences will be for us,” said Petraeus.

"International peace and security do not require the United States to resolve all crises, intervene in every conflict, but the United States is obliged to resolve the Syrian conflict," he said.

The ex-director called Russia “an important political force,” but his current actions to resolve the Syrian crisis are, in his words, provocative.

“Putin wants to revive the Russian empire and is seeking to restore Russian influence in the Middle East, in particular, to secure his only Mediterranean naval base in Syrian Tartus,” he said.

A day ago, Syria confirmed receipt of Russian military aid, in particular, we are talking about "five fighters, a reconnaissance aircraft, and other military equipment."

      The United States spat on international peace and security! They are doing everything to ensure that these crises and conflicts appear.

              No, this is a barrel with a solarium or a mixture such as napalm or explosives with a fuse. When dumped, it creates a large damaging effect as from burning atomized fuel. It is also possible to add damaging elements such as nails.

            "Barrel bomb" - this makeshift incendiary device is a cylindrical container (up to 500 liters in volume, oil is usually stored in such containers) filled with gasoline, nails, shrapnel and explosives. Some modifications add cement or other material to increase the weight of the shot. “Barrels of TNT” crew members literally roll out of helicopters, so aircraft flying at much higher speeds do not use this type of shells. Such a strike, although it cannot be called a “point strike,” but the pilots clearly see where and on whom they are dropping a deadly load.

            Something, this general did not bother when phosphor and cassette shells were used on the Donbas ...

    “The longer we allow it to continue, the harder the consequences will be for us,” said Petraeus.
    The consequences are already coming, you just have not realized it yet. The former proverb with a derivative of the cockerel Petraeus about a roasted cock and ass is clearly not aware of the Russian proverb ...

      I am more impressed with the quote from Bismarck: “Do not hope that once you take advantage of the weakness of Russia, you will receive dividends forever. Russians always come for their money. And when they come, don’t rely on the Jesuit agreements that you allegedly justify you. They’re not worth it "the paper on which they are written. Therefore, it’s worth playing with the Russians honestly or not at all."

        The preoccupation is very strong and the face will not be like that, but it’s as if it was skewed in the ass with horseradish and mustard shoved. Napoleon’s plans fly like migratory birds. that they were raped. In the coalition, Turkey; Iran; Syria; Saudi Arabia and Russia are not very happy with them. And China so removed two states from the US map, gave Alaska to Russia and took Hawaii to itself. And who will answer? Only the CIA. Where did they see what they advised? Though the former, even the real. Everyone is responsible.

      The Israelis are very afraid of the supply of these systems, because the country may immediately turn into a no-go zone. Therefore, going to meet the Israelis, the treaty of 2011 was broken and last week Lavrov announced that negotiations on the supply of S-300pmu and S-400 were not ongoing. Under the 2011 agreement, three divisions were to be delivered.

    What, again, they are dragging through the UN Security Council the announcement of a no-fly zone. When besides NATO no one has the right to fly. And the United States and its allies calmly fly and bomb. So it was in Libya and how did it end? Once again you are convinced that not entirely adequate people are sitting in Washington, but with great conceit.

      What is a barrel bomb? Her role in the Syrian war

      POSTED ON 06.02.2014/XNUMX/XNUMX
      From Syria regularly receive reports on the use of the so-called Air Force "Barrels".

      http://youtu.be/AP-vjuDl6ZM

      Video from the scene - people are trying to disassemble the concrete debris, recently representing residential buildings; hundreds of wounded in hospitals and field hospitals. Human rights activists document the testimonies of victims, eyewitnesses and medical staff.

      aleppo barrel tnt

      There are numerous videos of how Syrian Air Force helicopters drop incendiary bombs on residential neighborhoods. These shells here are called "junk" - "TNT barrels." In international terminology, it is a “barrel bomb”.

      http://youtu.be/Kao-NwOhk3c

      There are even videos shot from the inside by the crew of a helicopter dropping "junk"
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkB7oE3Dibw&list=UUwQPGYqWJN8ok7acZK51XZA&feature
      = share

      WHAT IS A “DRAWBOM”?

      It was possible to analyze its contents precisely thanks to the specimens that did not explode during the fall.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2M0sO5f7mx8&list=UUwQPGYqWJN8ok7acZK51XZA&feature
      = share & index = 1

      This home-made incendiary device is a cylindrical container (up to 500 liters in volume, oil is usually stored in such containers) filled with gasoline, nails, shrapnel and explosives. Some modifications add cement or other material to increase the weight of the shot. The TNT Barrels are literally rolled out of helicopters by crew members, so this type of projectile does not use aircraft flying at much higher speeds. Such a strike, although it cannot be called a “point strike,” but the pilots clearly see where and on whom they are dropping a deadly load.

      http://youtu.be/LUttiJ2DTDo

      For the first time this weapon was used during the bombing in August 2012, when intense fighting broke out for the city of Aleppo. Since then, their use has been recorded on video in other regions of the country. Some shells did not explode in the fall, turning into timed mines. Photos of non-detonating devices of this kind and other aircraft shells were also repeatedly posted on the Internet.

      barrel TNT

      baramil

      According to a study by the Syrian Network for Human Rights over the entire period of the conflict, government forces used more than a thousand TNT barrel-type shells. Among the more than 2000 dead, a significant proportion are children.

      SENSE OF APPLICATION

      1. A “TNT barrel” is not only destruction. The metal “stuffing” and the incendiary substance inflict numerous wounds on people in the affected area, survivors have serious injuries.

      2. The rebels do not compete in the air, which means that incendiary tanks (“TNT barrels”) can be dropped without risking personnel losses.

      3. A “TNT barrel” will be cheaper than full-fledged classic shells of industrial production purchased on the foreign market. And a helicopter flight is much more economical than a combat aircraft (taking into account fuel consumption, the lack of which is acutely felt in the troops). And the damaging effect, provided that it is used in places of population concentration, is quite high.

      The official number of victims usually does not include the number of injured, the latter in this case will be especially many and this will be severe injuries. Bottom line: the population is not completely exterminated, but it loses its legal capacity and will to resist. And the death toll from such air attacks is not so high as to cause concern for the international community.

        I have only one question, why should government troops bomb civilians at all ??? Well, where is the logic? And then, why you can’t fire a large caliber helicopter? And yet, I looked at the videos and didn’t understand how the operators knew the place and time where the helicopter would fly and take off the bomb? this is one and the second time, adult men run and scamper in the shots and bustle, neither women nor children are visible, but among the dead women and children, and how can you show a child dying of dehydration while not completely dehydrated .

    By the way, the United States must constantly bark at threats and it is advisable to reinforce these actions with victories, otherwise the pro-American vassals will flee. With the first victories of Russia, immediately feel this drift, but it will be necessary.

    The Syrians would declare a FIRST ZONE over Syria.
    Jews, Turks, mattresses and other "members" of the so-called coalitions caught a couple of times anti-aircraft missiles produced by the Russian Federation - all the diarrhea on this would have closed.
    Syria is a sovereign state or where ???

    Are these formulations pissing me off? When it comes to the United States, they write "The United States wants," and when about Russia, "Putin wants." Why does Putin want, and not the Russian people?
    I increasingly observe statements of this kind in the West and come to the conclusion that this is an element of the information war, even in passing phrases say as if Putin is a tyrant who has captured the brains of Russians and Russians can’t decide anything and cannot decide, but he rules everything and terrible Putin. What nonsense is this? Putin could not have done anything if WE had not supported him in this. We want peace in Syria WE, and not Putin personally. And WE do not want to revive the empire, we just want to be given to live the way we want.
    Our journalists and politicians must be made to speak everywhere at the international level in the same way - "The Obama regime wants to destroy the peace in Syria and the entire Syrian people." Not the multinational American people, namely Obama. Moreover, this is true.

    Petraeus confirms the thesis that the number of "stars" and their size are not a reflection of mental abilities (only a "stupid" person may think that the overthrow of Assad can change the situation for the better), or such personality qualities as decency and honesty (based on the first, it turns out that if Petraeus did not stand up and is adequate, then he hides the true goals of Washington’s policy from his own citizens and “partners” from the EU)

    How tired they are ... Only the baby is still not clear what the Americans are seeking ..., to overthrow Assad with the hands of ISIS and others (he doesn’t calmly breathe like a bone in the throat), and then send this whole shobla to Russia. Himself calmly tear the country apart and take advantage of everything that is there. So the "crazy" ideas about no-fly zones, an increase in the Russian presence, and also the threat to us about the supply of weapons and instructors of Syria begin ...

    The key phrase is the influence of Russia in this region. The second most important phrase is to stop using bombs! So our Syrians and well hit the militants! But there is no Syrian crisis in nature: there is armed aggression by hundreds of ISIS and US-armed mercenaries!
    By the way, what about the use of DURkaina cluster bombs? And the United States does not use prohibited ammunition? Such a statement must be answered by double bombardment!

    Barrel bombs? This is a terrible weapon. Americans are still horrified to recall its first use in Vietnam.
    Such a bomb consists of a cast iron core and a barrel-shaped shell of fluorine rubber. Dropped from a height of more than a kilometer, it was guaranteed to turn the American fortified area into a pile of rubble mixed with bloody pancakes that were once American guys. In places where such bombs were used, people still disappear.
    The general’s fears are understandable, and judging by the expression on his face, he just visited a proctologist.

    There are a lot of famous intelligence services in the world, but only the CIA managed to spoil in every country, I’m sure that this former director also did his bit, but now he’s out of work, but there’s the same thing. One thing is clear, if Russia really decided to create a military base, then no one it will not allow creating without a flight zone over Syria, and even more so, striking at the residence of Al Assad ... Russia took into account the bitter experience of Libya.

    Putin wants to revive the Russian empire and seeks to restore Russian influence in the Middle East, in particular, to secure his only Mediterranean naval base in the Syrian Tartus

    And why is it bad that Russia wants (and will be) a great (at least an empire, at least a state of workers and peasants)? In my opinion, every state strives for this ... The United States kakbe identity is not against being great)))

    Petraeus also said that the Syrian president should be forced to abandon the use of barrel bombs, "otherwise the United States would stop the flights of the Syrian air force."
    Now this is unlikely. Perhaps the Syrian pilots, but the technique is Russian. But 5-6 pilots from among the Syrians on modern machines really prepare. But the most important thing, the MOST IMPORTANT, is spare parts, ammunition, equipment, communications, space reconnaissance. And Russian troops are not required to participate in battles.
