White House: the creation of fly-by zones in Syria could lead to conflict with the Russians

43
Washington is currently not considering options for creating zones of no-fly in Syria, since such a move threatens direct confrontation with Russia, reports RIA News statement by US administration spokesman Josh Ernest.




“Such zones are not what we are considering now. Is it possible that this will be subject to consideration, I will leave at your discretion, ”Ernest told reporters who were asked to comment on Hillary Clinton’s statement that the issue of no-fly zones could not be resolved without the participation of the Russian Federation.

But those who are in favor of creating such zones, Ernest asked to try "to answer the fundamental question - where to do it?".

He said: “Some, including our allies in Turkey, have offered such no-fly zones along the Turkish border, especially in the north and even in northeastern parts of Syria. Others are in favor of creating such a zone in the west of the country where clashes (between President Bashar’s troops) Assad and the opposition continue. ”

“The answer to the question of how you are going to create these zones is important especially because if you do it near Damascus, near Idlib province, for example, it is fraught with direct confrontation with Russia, because a small conflict will arise if you try to establish a restricted area there, Where are Russian planes flying now? ”- Ernest noted.

In addition, he stressed, "this step requires serious resources, in particular, a large number of aircraft and military personnel who will fly on them, technical workers, search and rescue teams, which should be prepared for emergencies."

In addition, "the US Department of Defense previously warned about the presence of developed defense systems in Syria, so the creation of flight-forbidden zones in this country will most likely mean that you (supporters of no-fly zones) will have to deal with such systems."

    In the foreseeable future, this is also excluded. It’s too late to simply try to establish control over the skies of Syria.

            How to explain to these Neanderthals that at a certain level of development of trade relations, trading countries have an interdependence and simply refuse to turn out goods.

    However, this did not prevent the Yankees, at one time, from establishing no-fly zones over Iraq and Libya. Now what's the deal? Grandmothers over or a point is not iron?

      Another incomprehensible your statement. They did not organize any no-fly zone over Iraq - it was a complex operation, in other words, a war with the regime of Saddam. As for Libya - yes - it was there. But de jure, the problem is that the Americans do not directly fight the Assad regime, like Saddam, but to cover up the opposition when they are bombed by ours is sensitive, in the sense of stingy.

    Comrades, the question is a little off topic: the Kurds are fighting with ISIS, Turkey (a NATO member) is bombing the Kurds in Iraq, it turns out that a NATO member openly acts on the side of ISIS terrorists. Question: WHY our politicians will not publicly declare this ????????? You have to shout about it at every corner !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "I’ll talk about a flagrant fact:
    On the banks of the Euphrates, in the middle of fields
    Caught our simple Russian tractor
    The sight of six American batteries.

    Hit a volley, shells flew,
    But the tractor driver was a guy with a head:
    He presses the pedal - and now the goal is not visible
    In the smoke curtain delivered.



    And the tractor soared over the pretty side
    And at the same moment the aggressor responded,
    To protect us frighten by war
    Hit a volley of tactical missiles.

    And our tractor driver, captain Litvinov,
    I looked at the map and turned on the afterburner,
    Calmly bombed over Riyadh
    And laid home turn.

    He turned off the reactor over Damascus,
    So as not to scare the Syrian and goats.
    Our Russian tractor rushed through the sky
    To refuel in your own collective farm.

    And, if the enemy takes action again,
    To prevent us celebrated Kurban,
    Order Agroprom-MO-RF-a
    A harvester will fly into the field. "

    What can I say, quite an honest statement. Without any tricks. Not able means not able. So the Russian contingent and the leadership’s actions have created such conditions under which the Americans can’t allow them to do what they’ve got used to in recent years.

    Russia is the ONLY force that acts in Syria legitimately, at the request of the LEGAL government of the country. We do not strike civilian targets. We defend our interests and fight the threats of terrorism. SGA can squeal and spatter. Now is not the 90s. Russia laced up the berets and rose from its knees. Maybe we harness for a long time, but we drive fast.
