Media: Washington is actively discussing the idea of ​​a no-fly zone in Syria

The US administration has a stormy debate on the deployment of military forces in Syria with the aim of establishing in a number of areas flying zones to protect civilians, reports The New York Times.




“The White House is skeptical of such an idea, but amid the growing European crisis of refugees and the military operation of Russia in Syria from Barack Obama, more and more insistently require more decisive measures,” he quotes from the article RIA News.

According to a newspaper source, last week, "during a meeting at the White House, US Secretary of State John Kerry and other officials resumed pressure on the use of air force to protect Syrians from shelling."

The head of the Pentagon, Carter, opposed the idea of ​​a "sobering assessment." According to him, "for this, the United States will have to significantly increase military spending in Syria." In addition, there is a "risk of accidental conflict with the Russian military," if you block certain areas of the country.

Also, officials discussed the introduction of no-fly zones in Syria on the borders with Jordan and Turkey to create safe zones there solely for humanitarian purposes.

However, no decisions were made as a result. Obama was not at the meeting, instead presided over by security adviser to the president, Susan Rice.

          Years of experience show that the countries against which the United States imposes sanctions are strengthening, and the countries they help are falling apart.

            Three questions.
            1. Who will establish the no-fly zones and by what right?
            2. Who are American “civilians”?
            3. What are “exclusively humanitarian goals” for zones on the border with Turkey and Jordan?

              "civilians" in the American are those who serve the interests of the United States.
              What are “exclusively humanitarian goals” —the places for the transfer of weapons to the IS.
              Who will establish the no-fly zones ... apparently glavnyuki because they assigned themselves to this role, the role of Glavnyukov ...

              The usual shaking of the air, while Russia dominates the sky of Syria, does not see them as a no-fly zone, like their ears.

              2. Those who are wet in the toilet of the VKS and Assad's army))
              3. The supply of equipment and weapons to the civilian population;)

              Good question! I wonder how they plan to implement this issue. Also, are they going to shoot down our planes? And how to carry out a similar plan through a veto of Russia at the UN. Well, unilateral measures in this case are hardly possible, so the White House is right.
              It seems that we still need to increase our group in Syria with the next SU-30 and Su-35, and we will have to understaff the air defense.

      Not a good idea. It is necessary to introduce no-fly zones, or the US Air Force will bomb the hospital or peacefully excavators. Well, this is no way. Let all of Syria become a no-fly zone for the United States and its coalition.

    Any attempt to ban Russian pilots from flying is tantamount to declaring war, fraught with a no-fly zone over Turkey and, in the long run, radiation zones in Western Europe and the United States. Are they sure they can hold back their bluff? Because if they can’t, it will finally bury the authority of the USA and NATO in the world. If they can, they will bury the whole world in nuclear fire.

    Well yes. But how else to save their "son of a bitch" (name - ISIS) from destruction.
    State Department duplicity causes nausea. In a good way, we should close the sky over the entire territory of Syria for all aircraft, except for the alliance under the auspices of Russia. But this is fraught with great scandal. yes

    no-fly zones in Syria on the borders with Jordan and Turkey to create safe zones there exclusively for humanitarian purposes

    forgot to add that without humanitarian zones on these borders, the supply of IS would be impossible and the war in Syria would end quickly. Naturally, this contradicts US plans to support and use IS in the region.

    Who is going to protect? moderate terrorists from the Syrian army; or Syrians from moderate terrorists. For some reason, it seems to me that the first option.

    They like striped discussing options - turn into a well-baked barbecue immediately or wait?

    I don’t think that the Turks will agree to a no-fly zone on their border with Syria. How then they will bomb the Kurds.

    The plot of Portuguese television about the unsuccessful landing of units of the US Marine Corps was published on the Internet: having left the landing boats, the Hummers stalled in the coastal sand, blocking the exit of other equipment. In Russian, the video is called "The US Marine Corps landed in Portugal. Do not laugh hard."

    An epic landing took place on the Atlantic coast near the village of Grandola during NATO exercises. Two landing boats of the marines crawled ashore, the soldiers, as expected, took up a circular defense, but then something went wrong. Namely - the marines' cars that drove down the ramps to the shore immediately stalled, bogging down the hubs in the sand.

    Judging by the uncertain actions of the US military, a similar situation was not foreseen for them. The Marines tried to rescue the Hammers from unexpected captivity, kicking them on wheels, getting into the cab and leaving it, as well as unloading the cars sternly. This was not a success. Part of the guards, tired of portraying a circular defense, lay down in the sand.

    the idea of ​​a no-fly zone in Syria is being vigorously discussed in Washington

    I am not against such a zone if they forbid their planes to fly close to the borders of Syria. But by and large - it is Syria who needs to declare a no-fly zone over its territory with some exceptions for the Allied Air Force.

    Yes, it’s a shame for Americans to spawn, the Yankees have already admitted that without a flight zone they won’t work, because there is DBK Moscow off the coast of Syria, so now we only hear verbal diarrhea on their part.

    My sixth sense is that after the transfer of our aircraft to Syria, the bombing will not end simply. A full-fledged military base “flickers” to me there, and “it seems” as “partners” the hair on the seat is torn in pieces for this reason. And in the no-fly zone - well, no less than a hefty roll-up "hairy friend" towards "partners".

    Quote: Yarik
    According to a newspaper source, last week, "during a meeting at the White House, US Secretary of State John Kerry and other officials resumed pressure on the use of air force to protect Syrians from shelling."

    Let them try, this is not Handuras nightmare with Libya. No matter how he catches himself.

    As there, Turkey said that they say it will bring down planes on its territory. Syria may also say so and that is its right. So it is Syria that can announce a no-fly zone on its territory for NATO aviation!

    Do not succumb to provocations, show off for the poor it (who do not have air defense). It’s one thing to promise to do a no-fly zone, to do something in kind. And I also liked it. On the territory of Syria near the border of Jordan. And why not on the territory of Jordan near the border of Syria.
    And even better in Australia on the border with Penguin.
