US Department of State: Washington does not have enough resources to create buffer zones in Syria

46
US State Department spokesman Mark Toner said during a regular briefing that Washington does not have enough resources to create buffer and no-fly zones in Syria.




“Regarding the creation of a (buffer) zone or a no-fly zone, whatever it may be called - we clearly stated that we do not consider that it is necessary and possible to create something similar on the ground. To support such undertakings, a lot of material and technical support is required, which we don’t have at the moment, ”he said, RIA "News".

Earlier, some senior politicians announced the need to create no-fly zones in Syria to protect the "moderate" Syrian opposition, in particular, from possible attacks from the Russian Federation. In particular, US authorities and NATO commanders stated that the goal of the Russian aviation They are not militants of the “Islamic State,” but namely “moderate” oppositionists.

All last week, Russian aviation has been hitting the positions of Islamic State militants using Su-25 attack aircraft, Su-34 and Su-24 front-line bombers. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, as a result, it was possible to inflict significant damage to the control systems and the material and technical base of the group, as well as to the infrastructure for training suicide bombers.

        The guys caught on late. The no-fly zone over Syria has already been created by the forces of the Russian Aerospace Forces hi

But ... "and the train ... and the plane .. and the ship ..." flew away, left, sailed for the United States into the foggy distance! Who will now allow them to unchecked housekeeping in Syria! WITH THE EXIT OF RUSSIA TO THE LEVEL OF WORLD POWER IN THE USA, THE STATE AS IN THIS GREATEST TOSH IS A DESIRE, BUT THE OPPORTUNITY DIRECTLY DECREASED !!! ... Therefore let them dream further!

        And who will let you create YOUR buffer or no-fly zone on the territory of a sovereign state ???
        Do not be cunning - remove the wording "..we do not believe that it is necessary .." and leave ".. we do not believe that it is possible .."

      Yes, these resources have not gone away, they are just afraid to make a buffer, without a flight zone. Because it will be destroyed right away and they will be disgraced only with their vaunted equipment, in addition, it can lead to war, and the states are not ready for this, they can only fight with the wrong hands and our planes in Syria are under the auspices of the UN. So the Americans are there illegally. request

      Everything is natural, they wrote off money for training the militants, after our bombing they will be charged for their destruction and everything is covered. It’s just that the business is nothing personal, and Russia is the “killer of Syria’s freedom,” and its pockets are full of grandmothers.

      Maybe I'm wrong, but (IMHO) the Americans are interested in the zone in the north-east of Syria (where the gas pipeline from Qatar was supposed to go through their project). So they scream about the location in this zone of the so-called. "moderate opposition", which the Russians allegedly curb in no way. Spit the Anglo-Saxons on the "opposition" -there is their selfish interest and nothing more. And blah blah about democracy and "opposition" - this is for the plebs. fool stop hi

    Is there not enough resources? Was there enough for Libya for Syria?
    Or maybe the matter is different? Maybe the pants got wet from a possible collision with Russia? what
    The law is on our side. To establish a no-fly zone you need a resolution of the UN Security Council. Shish to you!
    So, legally, you can crumble you into a small substance.

        No, not in strength. Americans also bomb ISIS, Turks bomb ISIS. The French ... I do not remember. So the establishment of a no-fly zone over all Syria is impossible simply because the declared goal is to create an expanded coalition to eliminate ISIS. And there, where strangers should not fly, they no longer fly. Without any no-fly zones.

    Washington always has only a stupid faith in its exclusiveness, which allows everything and, on the basis of this, in an unprecedented arrogance in violation of international law! But to stop Russian aviation today so that it does not fly to Syria, which it does in full accordance with international law, it turns out they have a TON OF GUT! And it’s good that they recognize this, but it’s somehow inconvenient for the whole world, when the Russians “do not react” to their exceptionalism and omnipotence!

    Just because mattresses will not give up their ideas, they can count money. An unmanned zone to protect their feeding mates will be replaced by MANPADS, it is much cheaper (more precisely, more profitable, because they will deliver MANPADS for babosy).

    As for the lack of resources, I strongly doubt it. Most likely we are talking about the fact that by organizing an unmanned zone, the states will directly begin a conflict with the Russian Federation, which could escalate into clashes ... So they are looking for the reasons for evasion.

        Having an unlimited amount of money does not mean unlimited resources. Of these hundreds of billions - trillions, only a relatively small part can be spent on REAL purchases of real resources, which changes from year to year, only very little changes. If you suddenly decide to spend just forty or fifty billion, but above this limit on real purchases, wild inflation can easily begin. Ukraine is not given plenty of money precisely because of the fact that they will BUY on them. “Abrams” there, “Raptor”, diesel fuel, lard and a burner - and where to get all this above the usual level of sales? So it may very well be that resources are not in abundance.

    I also think that the lack of resources is just an excuse. here in the case of slippers - who first got up and slippers. ours in Syria staked out, legally not to dig into the company and if now the mattresses will climb into it with no-fly zones, it will lead to direct collisions in the air and the aggravating side will be Yankees.
    It seems to me that they will find another way to give us a "trick" - without direct clashes.

    Note “hawks” in the United States, apparently, completely lost their sense of reality. The most famous of them is probably the former National Security Advisor to Presidential Administration Jimmy Carter Zbigniew Brzezinski. The British Times recently published his article, "In Syria, Russia must act together with America, and not against it." And here’s what, among other things, the article says: “The future of the region and the authority of America are at stake. In these rapidly changing circumstances, the United States has only one choice if they want to protect their interests in the region: to transfer to Moscow the demand that it cease hostilities damaging American assets. ”
