The Independent: Assad Army can get the title of the strongest in the Middle East

62
In case of victory in the civil war, the armed forces of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad can get the title of the most experienced in the entire Middle East, writes the British edition The Independent.




Just a few months ago, the Syrian military lacked people and weaponshowever, they recently suddenly launched an offensive. Earlier it was reported that the Syrian army, along with the Assad government, live the last days.

Later Russia intervened in the situation, which managed to change the situation radically. Syrian troops launched an offensive. If the Syrian army manages to preserve the victory - if its integrity and sufficiently high integrity of the personnel is maintained, then it will be able to emerge from the current war as the most tried and tested in the battles of the Arab army in the Middle East.

“And woe to those of her neighbors who forget about it!” Writes The Independent.

      And this does not mean that the Syrian army will start a war against its neighbors. A strong army can protect the country from external and internal interference.

        I think lately they have already fought head over heels to wish to start wars with neighbors.
        There will be many other worries, from eliminating the shortage of cannibals to restoring the destroyed infrastructure.

          Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces may become the most experienced in the Middle East


          The most important thing is that the forces opposing Assad’s armies receive Lyuli !!!

          And the title, gentlemen of the British, you can invent what you like.

      Fear the Danes bringing gifts ...
      Praise from "The Independent" is all the more issued in advance as a "black mark" among pirates. Considering how the USA throws ISIS / SSA, ATGMs, mortars, SWF (and possibly MANPADS) this desire to create the image of the almighty Assad army, which "suddenly" begins to slip on the few detachments of "Good Terrorists" and thereby should dishonor itself and its allies represented by Iran and the Russian Federation ...

      So put your boasts in one place Yankees! Somehow without yours - “Od to ​​the Glory of the Syrian Army / Russian Weapon” here we will understand.

        It’s interesting how the information background in the Western media is changing, Assad’s army has just been scrapped and there’s such a breakthrough. It’s clear that such praise is a sign of another company, but like the wind in May, there’s nothing permanent ........... ..

      Not really. Combat experience is an expensive thing. 4 years of a citizen with the use of all military branches is a serious combat experience. But in terms of equipment with Egypt, Israel and the Saudis Syria can not be compared. Moreover, not only due to losses, but mainly due to wear and tear. Outdated technology. Experience and morale are important, but the Syrians need to be re-equipped.

      In any victorious country, the army becomes strong, confident in its capabilities, highly motivated.
      As for the slow promotion, it’s not only that they are fighting ISIS. In fact, with such strong economically and militarily countries: Turkey-USA-Israel, plus small minorities like France in its main fighter for freedom pi..sov Olandm. Hard to know. Especially when uninvited guests fly with impunity in the skies of your country and shatter the infrastructure under the pretext of combating terrorism. And the neighbor generally provides his territory for the reformation and rest of the disadvantages.
      The fact that Assad, unlike Saddam Hussein and Gaddafi, has kept the army sworn to faith and stopped the enemy is worth a lot. Well, sooner or later, the Syrian army with the help of Russia and possibly Iraq / Iran, and in the distant future, China will expel all the bastards from their country.
      As for the question of whether this army will fight against its neighbors, I think it will not in the foreseeable future.
      First, Russia will sharply oppose this, and Assad, for obvious reasons, will listen to the Kremlin’s opinion.
      Secondly, it is necessary to restore the country. There can be no successful front without a reliable rear - this axiom is remembered even in the Great Patriotic War.
      Thirdly, with whom to fight? With Israel - it should be noted that the bull's eye is too tough. It is the same with Turkey.
      Maybe later, someday ... As you know, in the East, the memory is long, especially when it comes to inflicted blood insults.

    Thanks, MARGADON. Honestly, I was waiting for a similar idea to be expressed. Site visitors, like me, of course empathize with the Syrian and their army. But, one should not forget that this is the Arab army. Try to analyze the Arab-Israeli war, the Iran-Iraq war. After all, the Arabs regularly managed to fail where there was no alternative to victory.
    Therefore, the analyst of "The Independent" and other Anglo-Saxons should be taken very carefully.

    History knows the opposite. In all Arab-Israeli wars, despite everything, the Arabs received the most tomatoes, although they had a lot of advantages. Moreover, both Syria and Egypt at the same time) And Israel is slowly, despite the world community, expanding and crushing. The map of Israeli territories from the moment of its founding on seg. Day is surprising) (growing by leaps and bounds). And the Dutch heights in Syria were overcome, and the territory of Egypt up to Sharm El Sheikh was occupied. And the Egyptians still supply gas to Israel under that peace treaty))

    The most experienced? Perhaps. The strongest, hardly. There is Iran, Egypt, Israel, in the end.

    I agree, he himself noted in the title of the article “the strongest”, and in the text “experienced, hardened.” They gained experience, but in terms of size and equipment there are stronger armies in the region. Even if they win the civil war, I think the Syrians have where to invest, according to TV there is the whole country like post-war Stalingrad or Grozny. hi
