White House: the United States will avoid conflicts with the Russian Federation in Syria

39
Ben Rhodes, deputy adviser to the US president on national security, said on CNN that the United States would avoid conflicts with the Russian military in Syria if they were involved in operations against militants of the Islamic State terrorist group.




“If necessary, we will avoid conflicts in the conduct of our operations if the Russians conduct their operations. This is a process in which the Pentagon and its Russian partners will be involved, ”he quotes RIA. "News".

At the same time, Rhodes again voiced the position of Washington that along with operations against terrorists a political settlement is necessary, an important element of which is the resignation of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“If Russia wants stability in Syria and wants to fight the IS, it will have to link this fight with the political process that will lead to Assad’s resignation and long-term stability in the country,” he said.

Earlier in the media there were reports of the strengthening of the “Russian military presence” in Syria, including the transfer of military equipment, armaments and military personnel there, which was perceived in the West as a possible preparation for operations against ISI militants on the side of Assad. In turn, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia "will not participate in any military operations in Syria or in other states."

        Since the 40s, they have known that Russians harness for a long time but travel fast. It was the same as the Great Patriotic War when the Allies had to urgently open a 2nd front in 44 to be in time for victory. And when they created their nuclear weapons, having tested it in 49 g .to the great amazement of the United States.

          So in Syria, the scenario is not ruled out when, after hanging the ISIS’s lyule, the American coalition will join ours in order to share the victory and be sympathetic to it.

        a vicious circle is obtained however. if everything settles down there for example. and the us will want to displace Assad laughing . But it was not there. The population of Syria will be for Assad. (And the world will be then when all the terrorists are destroyed. Together with the "moderate opposition of the United States.") And what about? the United States will have to get into another provocation, create a new "moderate opposition." (IN THESE PATIENTS ON THE HEAD, THE MANIACAL PURPOSE TO OVERCOME ASSAD. As rams will weed, not seeing anything else and not suggesting other options.) Which also will have to be destroyed. In principle, all this is in the plans of the United States. Based on this. There will be no peace in the world as long as the USA exists in the form as it is now

      Guys, here you need a clear military understanding, as taught:

      "The interaction is organized to the entire depth of visibility, and according to the map (on the layout of the area) to the entire depth of the combat mission.
      When organizing interaction, the commander must: coordinate the efforts of the staff, attached and supporting units to accomplish the task; to achieve a common understanding by all commanders of the battle objectives, combat missions and how to accomplish them; outline and agree on the options for units and measures to deceive the enemy, based on the nature of his possible actions, as well as indicate alerts, controls and interactions.
      During the battle, interaction is carried out continuously, constantly updated, and with sudden changes in the situation is re-organized ....! "


      The war, this is not to distribute cookies on the Maidan!

      It seems the arguments of V. Putin to Obama that Assad is not a coward Yanukovych ... and if Assad has not been overthrown by opposition for 4 years, but the other way around ... With the support of his own people, he reflects the Atrozian world ... the first place should be put not in the assassination of ASAD in retirement, but in the fight against ISIS ... that it is not necessary to put sticks in the wheels .. and being partners was more convincing! Another US policy THE WORLD WILL NOT UNDERSTAND!
      I’m not sure that this partnership will be sincere .. but outwardly the United States will be forced into our coalition ... even as travel companions ..

    The US will avoid conflicts with the Russian military in Syria if they participate in operations against militants of the Islamic State terrorist group.

    Obviously, this can be understood as follows: if the Russians appeared on the horizon, it is better to withdraw their aircraft, and take the "instructors" from the positions of the IS to the rear.

    Rumor has it that China has decided to join a coalition with Russia against the IG. Like, even the fleet has already sent. I hope this is not a rumor. Of course, I understand that China has far-reaching raw material plans in this region, but it would be good to weaken the influence of the USA in this region even in this way.

      Dear lwxx, but are you serious? Or so, to pick up cheap points.
      Just in case, if you are serious, listen once more to Vladimir Vladimirovich’s speech at the UN, where he addresses this issue, however, like Russia's policy, is stated clearly and distinctly.

      Something like that. negative

        I don’t chase points, but it is necessary to listen carefully to GDP speech. Judging by your nickname (year of birth 1964), then you should be able to read between the lines- Compliance with UN legal norms. Did I indicate somewhere that we should do without the permission of the UN Security Council? If we allow bacchanalia in the sky of Syria, then we will get not only government troops but also us, supposedly by mistake. If you remember, the Jews have already bombed warehouses. Well, ranger will not even answer.

    Gasprom’s revenues from the sale of natural gas do not let Amer live. The main reason for the war in Syria is Assad’s refusal to lay gas pipelines with cheap gas from BV to Europe (to let his corporations boil up and shit Russia). It’s not a problem. After all, it’s not a task — Russians can fight as an adult (what mattresses have repeatedly been convinced of). So their appeal is clear. Please warn when you walk, we’ll get better at home this day.

    I think Russia will do everything correctly in Syria, our planes and helicopters are already a fact, the marines are there too ... Putin said that Russian armed forces will not participate in ground operations, but the question is, what about special operations? no one has canceled them ... but the Americans just perfectly understood - it’s one thing to blow their cheeks and “bomb” in the desert it’s unknown to anyone, and another thing to get to grips with the Russian Air Force ... shorter than that!

      I would like to believe, but doubts torment me. The fact that they will not butt directly with us (as we are with them) is obvious: they are not fools. But the feeling does not leave that the United States simply tactfully concedes to the Russian Federation the opportunity to get into Syria and get bogged down tightly there. And then - according to the worked out Ukrainian scenario: "Oh, you support bad uncles, here’s a bunch of sanctions for you." It is time to already understand that in terms of cunning, the Americans are very confidently overtaking us, so all their diplomatic movements should be treated with great caution.

    It is clear why they raised such a screech as soon as the Russian Federation began to strengthen the base. It’s just that no longer flying and bombing with impunity - the plans of the West for air strikes are already in question (even if the Russian air defense will strengthen, for example, S-300 (400)). Anyone should understand that the answer can fly in the sky of Syria. And second, Assad cannot be eliminated anymore - he has somewhere to take refuge - the US plan is no longer realistic.
    Hence everything and visits: Turks, Jews, etc. - US plan down the drain, what will the GDP offer !?
    And where did they get the idea that the GDP was going to fight? And the funniest thing is that the “super-warriors of the West” are afraid of "crossing".
    Against this background, if Russia has a result in the fight against IS, many will turn their backs on the United States in the region. Now how to achieve this now, without involving your own aircraft? hi

      in the sky of Syria, and the answer can fly

      From whom? In our right mind, our amers will not shoot.

      Assad cannot be eliminated anymore - he has a place to hide

      If Assad took refuge somewhere, he’s already, consider, eliminated. Vaughn Yanukovych physically, too, in the end, no one touched, he hid after all, and so what?

      super-warriors of the West are afraid to "cross"

      Who said they were afraid? They simply don’t need it: Russia will be drawn into a mess, and super-warriors will watch while chewing popcorn and periodically interfering with the little things so that the show does not end ahead of time.

      if the Russian Federation has a result in the fight against IS

      Those. we can’t figure it out with a hot spot right by the side (Donbass), but there’s nothing to do to frighten someone there far away from home. Doubtful, oh doubtful.

    The political regime cannot be overthrown by force, there will only be chaos. It is necessary to allow the current regime to unfold fully and resolve issues at the legislative level. Even if the partners bring "democracy", who will come to power anyway? Honest people? Dealers will put their puppets, it will not be better. Assad does not like it, but the people support it, and it represents the interests of the country, a strong country and strong people who do not like it, live where it is better, but if you do not make the world a better place, then there will be no place for you there. It is better to support the current ruler, and settle everything legally. Because there will always be, even in a perfect society, such a human nature that will be cunning, take bribes, offer rewards, etc. So live in good conscience, and at least sometimes do something for the good of society, and good will return to you!

    That is, I understand that if the Russian military on the territory of Syria will participate in operations FOR the militants of the Islamic State terrorist group, will the United States immediately, of course, most certainly rush into the conflict? Madhouse, however! fool lol
