General: in Iraq there is a stalemate, the fight against the IG is actually not conducted

49
In the war of the government army of Iraq against the IS, a stalemate has developed - neither one nor the other side has enough strength to deliver a decisive blow, says Mark United States chief of staff of the US Army, the words of which the newspaper cites Defense News cites Look.




“The political component, domestic policy is of fundamental importance in Iraq for developing a long-term solution to the problem of countering the IG. In addition, the Iraqi government, the Iraqi security forces ... should become more aggressive and more inclined to conduct offensive operations in order to defeat ISIS militarily, ”the general said.

In his opinion, "Iraq needs a combination of political and military action."

At this stage in the country, “at the operational and strategic levels, many describe the situation as stalemate - in the sense that neither the Iraqi security forces nor ISIL have the military potential to defeat the other side,” Milli said.

He expressed confidence that "the United States must continue to train the Iraqi armed forces and provide them with various kinds of assistance, but cannot and should not fight for them against the IS."

Focusing on the situation in Syria, the general repeated the official position of the Pentagon, which is that along with the IG, the Assad regime is a big problem. He also condemned Russia, which, having started the operation in Syria, only “adds fuel to the fire of the conflict”.

At the same time, the general said that he was not yet ready to draw conclusions about the effectiveness of Russian activities in Syria. “I need a few more days to see in which direction the situation is developing,” said Milli.

    Stalemate situation. It turns out that the American coalition only imitates the war with ISIS. Or specifically bombing objects that are not related to ISIS.

      The stalemate for the coalition is true. For Russia and Syria leading the offensive, the situation does not look stalemate. ISIS retreats.

        How can you damage anything by adding fuel to the fire when the hooligans set fire to the oil storage?

        When you mess up something and the awareness of what you messed up comes, smart people sit down and calmly think what to do next. Stupid people begin to blame everyone around, rushing from side to side and making even more stupid schools. The finale is known - America 2.0. System reboot and rollback if not to the pre-Columbian era, then in the 1750-th - for sure.

      If America will bomb ISIS just like ours, then ISIS will open its mouth, and how it will begin to talk about America about various embarrassing things for it!

      Well, is it not an indication that we have already been declared jihad by everyone - from Saudi Arabia to do not understand anyone in Syria. And America bombed the year and no one declared war on it? So it’s bombing like that ...

      If, in 1941, the Red Army with bows and apologies, having dropped its weapons, had retreated to Kamchatka, perhaps the Germans would not have even fired after. Only the difference between us and America is that they can do this, but we cannot.

      And what kind of oil do we add to the fire? We fight with the Isis in Syria, the Americans in Iraq and Syria - no. What is “oil” expressed in? And anyway, what do the generals with the brain have in America? Klitschko is resting ... Klitschko is simply a genius of literature in comparison with them.

      Swan, cancer and pike. The US is bombing those goals that it considers important, the government is trying to teach Iraqi troops to at least not run away from the militants, and there are not enough Iranian troops at all. We need a land operation, but there is no one to do it. Assad will beat Syria (most of it), but Irka is unlikely to go free. We should not go there either. Everything goes to the campaign that Iraq will fall into three states Kurdistan, Sunni Iraq and the Shiite south. It’s difficult to keep this whole structure, because Shiites do not trust the Sunnis, and the Kurds generally do not.

    What, and the Iraqi government army has already gathered Mosul and the province to exempt from the igles, are they building plans for the offensive, did the mattresses decide to stand aside? This is in their spirit. And they will not help, because Iraq called for help to Russia. A pitiful revenge.

    This abomination talks about peace on Earth only from its global interests and even blames Russia for its actions in Syria and Assad’s support, which violates some American balance in the world, which is a priori true and supposedly accepted by the whole world. However, the mattress workers, not having the strength and the ability to defeat ISIS in Iraq, are actively putting Russia in the wheel of smashing terrorists in Syria, supplying these terrorists with weapons, declaring them unilaterally in a strange word as moderate opposition for Assad. The cunning always doesn’t do a damn thing herself and with hysteria prevents others from doing something.
