Military Review

Retired colonel advised Washington to "shut up" about Syria

124
The Russian antiterrorist operation in Syria showed the world that the US policy in this country failed miserably, reports RIA News statement of a retired American colonel and military analyst Jack Jacobs.




“The myth that the United States is struggling with the IG has been exposed. We do absolutely nothing. (...) We inflicted airstrikes, but did not achieve any success. IG is still strong - or even stronger than before, ”said Jacobs on CNBC.

“Anyone with military experience knows that all our actions (in the region) have failed. We got into a mess, because we are obviously untenable - we don't even have a strategy, ”he stressed.

In Washington’s interests in this situation, he should “shut up first,” the analyst is sure.

According to him, the accusations against Russia, which allegedly warned the Pentagon too late to launch operations in Syria, are “outrageous”, and show that Washington simply has nothing to say.

      In the interests of Washington in this situation, he should "shut up first of all," the analyst is sure

      said rudely as a colonel
      but competently and confidently as an analyst
      or vice versa..? In general, an analyst colonel in the subject and common direction!

        They instantly "see" after resigning.
        A kick in the ass provokes some changes in the brain.
        This is probably a banal revenge on the authorities.
        You look at our beloved Psaki in my memoirs, she will write how sincerely she loves Russia and, in general, was an agent of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

            Well, yes, I earned a pension, I bought a house in the village ...
            Now it’s possible to think smartly. It’s unlikely that they will be punished for this with a dollar, but in the service they cannot!

              I would not say that in America you can be clever with impunity. For example, the uncle who organized the referendum on the separation of Alaska from the United States, after the organized failure of the referendum in the market in Anchorage, quietly cut UNKNOWN. And some UNKNOWN truck knocked down, again for good, a peasant who realized that he needed to collect samples of dust scattered all over New York from the WTC towers and found in all the samples the termite used to cut metal during industrial demolition of buildings. And it’s kind of embarrassing to talk about the multi-way with Li Oswald’s setup after having written about it for 50 years - it’s only interesting how they managed to screw up with such a cool candidate for “KGB agents” and crank everything so crookedly that there are white threads stick out in all directions.

              So they won’t punish the dollar, but the FBI also works for them ... Although it is crooked ...

                That's right, you can be smart, but substantive activities (organized a referendum, collect samples, etc.) are likely to be fraught with the consequences you described.

                Actually, yes ... but if this colonel also collected specific facts, with the desire to publish them ... then he was no longer alive.

              Do you think someone noticed him in Washington? They do not notice much more obvious and high-profile things.

              That is the “charm” of democratic freedoms that everyone can say anything. To a certain limit. Within the permitted. He blurted out, he was heard by 100 people who did not do the weather in the USA. And to prevent 100 millions from hearing it, the FBI, the NSA and the spirit of dozens of such organizations still have a long time to “make him an offer that he cannot refuse.”

And they all have some opinion, if they have not yet become sick with senility. Moreover, it is characteristic that as soon as the military and diplomats in the United States resign, they immediately begin to express opinions, everyone has different opinions, these opinions can be described by the distribution of the energy of the molecules according to Boltzmann. Some of the opinions coincide with ours. But from the point of view of physics, this is nothing more than a tail in the distribution of molecules according to Boltzmann. then - so what?

        I have no honor to be a relative of Boltzmann. Boltzmann is a famous German physicist (I understand your irony - Austrian German. Not a Jew). His works are still used in the calculations of thermal machines. The point of my remark is not in criticizing the retired colonel, but in the fact that discussing his statements, which are absolutely correct, does not make sense, because a) he is retired and b) one of the few. I myself know that as soon as people retire, they immediately become well-versed in politics, economics, etc., even analysts somewhere. And this is generally normal. Our misfortune in Russia - analysts - before the hell, there are few synthetics.

    Jack Howard Jacobs (born 2 on August 1945 of the year) is a retired US Army Colonel who was awarded the Congress Medal of Honor (a prize roughly corresponding to the title of Hero of the Soviet Union / Russia with us) for participating in hostilities in the territory of the Republic of Vietnam.
    He currently serves as a military analyst for NBC news and msnbc, before which he worked as an investment manager in one of the private companies engaged in services in this business field.

      Separate information from the award sheet of Colonel (at that time captain) Jake H. Jacobs, to the Congressional Medal of Honor, with which he was awarded:
      While serving as a military adviser from the US Armed Forces in the ranks of the Armed Forces of the South Vietnam Republic (specifically the 2-th battalion, 16-th (9-th?) Infantry division of the Armed Forces of the South Vietnam Rep.), During the assault on the reinforced positions of the North.- The Vietnamese Armed Forces under enemy fire, Captain Jacobs, because of losses among the command staff of the battalion, being wounded himself, took command of the forces of this battalion and removed the remaining forces of this unit from enemy fire.
      He was also able to organize the deployment of the remaining forces of the battalion for defensive actions, as well as to organize the evacuation of the wounded remaining at the turn of the attack.
      He took a personal, direct part in the evacuation of the wounded, despite the fact that he himself was wounded.
      During the evacuation of the wounded, he directed the actions of the personnel and personally drove the medical service car, taking the wounded from the front positions under intense mortar fire and fire from the enemy’s small arms, repelling the enemy’s three counter-attacks against the evacuation group he organized.
      Thanks to these actions, from the front lines for several flights, 13 soldiers of the South Vietnamese rep were evacuated from enemy fire. and 1 military adviser to the US Armed Forces.

    Well, to be honest, the US coalition has been bombing Syria for 40-50 sorties a year a day, and the result? ISIS has expanded the captured territory by 30%, not a single shot of hitting targets, apparently dropping bombs in the desert on the heads of local animals? Here our aviation began to work and in the very first days more than 20 targets were hit and how spectacularly. It immediately suggests that either the Americans don’t want to bomb, or are just so “cool” that they don’t hit the targets, there is a third option - they’re just cowards. Here the colonel as a concrete person and apparently appreciating the result gave his assessment, harshly, but clearly. A coalition of 60 states per year caused ISIS less than the Russian Aerospace Forces in two days. So who knows how to fight? We would also need to attract the Air Force and the ground forces of China, then the terrorists in general Khan.

If the entire ISIS is estimated at 50000, then why does it continue to advance? After all, they have lost tens of thousands. And I don’t believe the Western media for a long time, after 08.08.08, they lied on black and now they are lying. 20 goals show the video before and after the defeat, the real result. The Pentagon also confirms that there are results. If everything works out, you have to admit that you are not competent.

    The outfit of forces and means of the air forces in Syria is very insignificant. Our General Staff is not in vain eating bread. So, there are few worthy goals. The weather in Syria will “break” in November - low cloud cover, wind, heavy rains. IMHO, the operation is calculated before the start of the weather. 3-4 weeks. During this time, the entire revealed infrastructure of the bearded will be smashed in half, halted in supply and physically stopped smuggling oil. And without money, most of the militants will not want to fight. Napoleon also said that three things are needed for war — money, money, and again, money. There will be no money - both ISIS and the opposition of all shades surrender.

      Yes Yes.
      But the most important thing is that the Syrian Armed Forces would conduct no less effective ground combat operations and destroy / force out ISIS forces and the "moderate opposition" from occupied areas.
      Otherwise, all the results that the air strikes inflicted by the airborne forces of the Russian Federation will not give the proper final result.
      Because soon the enemy will be able to restore all the destroyed infrastructure and his battered forces.
      The main thing is not to give the enemy a break, to beat and drive him, as long as there are forces and opportunities. Desirable in general for the territory of Syria.
      It is worth asking a question in this regard. At the moment, the Syrian army, thoroughly battered for the 4 of the war year, is capable of such actions?
      Because she will have to not only force the enemy out of the occupied parts of the territory of Syria, but also take control and hold them herself.

    Well, right, but what else can I say? .. This is how to get dirty and make guilty that your pants are dirty, for example, a neighbor ... I didn’t tell where the bushes are closer ...

    "Too late to warn the Pentagon."
    Prudently! They would have warned before, and "at the request of" the Americans, there would be no Ishilovites at the facilities.

    During this time, the entire revealed infrastructure of the bearded will be smashed in half, halted in supply and physically stopped smuggling oil. And without money, most of the militants will not want to fight

    This is the main task .... you are right! And then the leaders will start to “click” ... The main thing is not to interfere!

    Our sworn friends smile at me. But ISIS differs from moderate opposition? Both are fighting against Assad. Or ISIS wants to catch him and then cut his throat under the camera, and moderate to catch, judge and hang? And for the sake of such humanism leave Assad?

    From the Colonel ... Blows are carried out both against the Caliphate and against "good terrorists." The latter causes terrible discontent in the West, from which there are constantly proposals "to stop bombing good terrorists and deal only with the Caliphate." Russia continues to confidently take a position - we will bomb those who are needed, how much is needed and where necessary. Since the bombardments come from high enough heights and do not allow them to counter at the expense of anti-aircraft guns and MANPADS, adhering to this strategy, Russia acts with impunity demonstrating every day picturesque cuts of bomb strikes at various targets of the Caliphate and other "freedom fighters". In fact, the pro-American coalition puts forward an ultimatum "either bomb only the Caliphate, or fold." But in fact, this coalition has no opportunity to directly stop what is happening, since from the point of view of international law, Russia uses the official request of a legitimate government and is the only country that can legally bomb in Syria. Since from a legal point of view there is no digging in, there is informational and diplomatic pressure on Russia, as the changing situation in Syria breaks the many years of alignment that arose during the war. Militarily, the possibilities of the Russian Federation for bombing could be limited by the supply of air defense systems in a significant amount with trained calculations, but it is completely unclear who will give them and most importantly to whom, not to mention the air defense systems are also not a panacea and can be destroyed as part of comprehensive measures aimed at neutralizing the focal air defense system. Do not forget that, in addition to other goals and objectives, the Russian army uses this theater of defense to test various types of weapons (including new ones) in combat conditions, which will be useful both in this and in very likely subsequent conflicts.

    Even in the SGA there are "real colonels"! soldier Unexpectedly somehow.

    And I, and I, I tried so hard. I also want a medal. Well, at least the smallest.
    And then you look at these former colonel veterans with the prefix,
    so it seems that they took Stalingrad an encore three times.

    Do you want Washington to destroy its creation, with the help of which chaos is created not only in Europe? The Colonel is right, but he does not understand everything. Terrorism is US policy.
