Ernest: Russian strategy in Syria cannot be called successful

The White House believes that Moscow’s strategy in the fight against terrorism in Syria is not successful, said US administration spokesman Josh Ernest on Thursday.




"The strategy of Russia (in Syria) is not successful now in terms of fighting the" Islamic state, since most of its military operations take place in areas where there are very few IG forces, if they exist at all, "Ernest quotes RIA News. In his opinion, Moscow is simply “flexing its muscles.”

Earlier, the deputy head of the Syrian Foreign Ministry Mikdad said that "airstrikes of the Air and Space Forces of the Russian Federation in Syria in a few days caused more serious damage to terrorist groups than the actions of an international coalition led by the United States for a year." At the same time, he noted that Russia had begun to apply air strikes after it was convinced that “The actions of the so-called coalition formed by the United States are aimed at providing technical support to the terrorists, supporting them and extending their tenure (in Syria)”.

          Of course not. ISIS flees, the Syrian army is advancing, and there are no profits. Salvage to Russian accounts does not fall for the help of Syria. US loot lost. Where is the success laughing

        It’s high time to understand that no matter what we do in Syria, we will still be subjected to American attacks. The United States does not tolerate when someone dares to invade matters, where they assign themselves a dominant role, and even more so show that all their attempts in this matter are not so significant. So we are waiting for the next horror stories about the strengthening of sanctions and isolation of Russia.

          In the 17th century, the annexation of the territory of America by the Anglo-Saxons and French occurred with the destruction of the indigenous population of America by the Indians. So is it not time to repent and return everything to the native Indians of America to the Indians and not poke their nose where you are not willing to see and hear.

        From where to be successful ... in just less than two weeks, not one excavator was destroyed, and the Americans as much as 2 ... command centers and bases with warehouses with mattresses are not taken into account. The main thing in the fight against ISIS (in their opinion) is weddings and excavators ....

      Do you want to prove the opposite? And for this, neither you nor me, do not even need to leave the computer.

      Take and open any YouTube program of Vladimir Solovyov on YouTube, and "admire" our "believers", and even propagandize the "splendor of the USA" ... We, unfortunately, have a whole layer of them.

      So IS, or NO?

      Apparently, not only in Russia. Familiar Germans (journalists) monitor foreign forums. And there, more and more comments are not in favor of the US and Europe. And VV Putin and Russia are found in almost every commentary.

The specialists are obviously preparing, now they need to trumpet the whole world about the losses of the Russian Aerospace Forces, which we allegedly warned you about.

    "The strategy of Russia (in Syria) is now not successful in terms of the fight against the Islamic State, since most of its military operations take place in those areas where there are very few IS forces, if any,"
    Well, of course, someone doubted, because a successful strategy is when bombs fall on the regular army of Syria, and the militants receive money, weapons and instructors from these “fighters for democratic values.” This we have already passed.

    We didn’t have anything left, but in Ameria these words are clearly for the ears of ordinary listeners and the eyes of readers - after all, they believe everything there that their State Department says to them ... This is another step of the Barashka’s administration to justify its inaction in the fight against ISIS in front of the people of the United States ...

    How much dirt will still be from these corrupt creatures. We see how effective the joint work of the Russian, Iraqi and Syrian military is. . Eliminate the terrorist threat to our country at distant approaches. Every ISIS killed in Syria is an ISIS who did not come to fight in Russia. Apparently after the defeat of ISIS, EU residents will not be able to get millions of refugees resulting from the United States. Eliminating ISIS in Syria and Iraq, we will block the supply of contraband oil to the world markets, which is sold at dumping prices. And these are just a few of the reasons for this "Concern."

    " Moscow's counterterrorism strategy in Syria is not successful"...

    Wrong strategy of Russia !!! Instead of wandering for years, in a week it showed all the bankruptcy of the American strategy, and it’s impossible to do so, because the states are exceptional !!!

    Wrong Strategy of Moscow showed zero effectiveness as amer’s policy, and the use of coalition forces in Syria ...

    The wrong strategy of Moscow showed that not only from the Black and Baltic Seas, but also from the Caspian, Russia can effectively reach the American henchmen with an iron hand ...

    Well, Russia is behaving incorrectly !!! Can not be so !!!

    If in the near future we do not see a positive result of the offensive of the Syrian army, then it is so, unfortunately the results today are very modest. Isil is developing an offensive in the north, amassing troops under the very nose at our air base, so as not to get under the distribution.

    "The strategy of Russia (in Syria) is now not successful in terms of the fight against the Islamic State, since most of its military operations take place in areas where there are very few IS forces, if any"
