Military Review

The analytical program of Mikhail Leontyev "However, Context"


We are not bombing those in Syria! Like, they promised to fight with ISIS - the fiend of hell, and bomb the opposition - moderate - fighting the Assad regime !? So who are we still bombing in Syria and why? However, hello!

The Free Syrian Army, the most moderate of the moderates, was formed in Turkey, on the initiative and with the help of France, even before the start of clashes in Syria.

“This army, whose name copies the Free French Forces of the Second World War, is rumored to consist of deserters of the Syrian army, but this is purely false. With the exception of some commanders. The Free Syrian Army consists mostly of Libyans who were part of” Al-Qaida, "operating in the territory of Libya," - said the journalist, political scientist Thierry Meyssan.

The political roof — the National Coalition of émigré leaders who had long lost contact with Syria — appeared in November 2012 of the year already in Qatar, which took over the financing of the Free Syrian Army, the FSA. Today, the SSA is, in essence, a signboard through which financing and arming of Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar is carried out, under the supervision of the United States, of various jihadist groups fighting against the Assad government. As a symbol of continuity, the SSA, like the National Coalition, retained the French colonial flag.

"Less temperate." Jabhat-en-Nusra has the status of the official Al-Qaida cell in Syria. I rebounded from ISIS at the start of 2012, when Al-Qaida’s leadership came to grips with ISIS, which launched active operations in Syria. He has identical goals with ISIL, that is, the creation of a world caliphate with the help of unlimited atrocities, but does not want to give up claims for leadership. He was declared a terrorist organization in the United States, which did not prevent the former CIA chief Petraeus, one of the architects of the anti-Igil coalition, to call on him to rely on ISIL.

Coalition "Islamic Front". Created in November 2013 of the year on the basis of several radical groups, among which "Ahrar ash-Sham" - mostly focused on Turkey, "Ansar ash-Sham", "Liva at-Tauhit". Al-Qaeda and An-Nusru are considered to be their brothers, with whom they carry out joint operations, but limit their ambitions to the territory of Syria. Financially supported by the Gulf countries, Turkey and weapons from USA.

There are no significant differences in either the ideology or the methodology of these guys with ISIS. And they cut their heads long before ISIS, with its outstanding public relations.

And finally, ISIS - "The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant." Officially established in Iraq in 2006, the merger of 11 factions led by the Iraqi Al-Qaida. It became known as ISIL in April 2013, when its militants got into a civil war in Syria, which caused friction with the leadership of Al-Qaida, which recognized An-Nusru as its legal representative in Syria. Since then, "cute curse." The main source of ISIL's existence - Saudi Arabia and Qatar, grown on a competitive basis - is trade in oil from fields in Northern Iraq and Kurdistan, carried out on an industrial scale through the ports of Turkey and Israel. By some estimates, at least a million dollars a day. Other sources - the implementation of looted artifacts, with the participation of elite salon houses in Europe, and human trafficking.

That is, the “Islamic State” is, as befits a state, a completely self-financing structure, incorporated into legal transport and financial flows of the civilized world, otherwise this business activity simply could not last a day. That is, ISIS in its current form could not exist a day without the permission and complicity of key members of the anti-Silov coalition.

Stanford University, as part of a global monitoring organization of militants around the world, tracks history and the relationship of paramilitary groups in Syria. On the Stanford scheme, the formation, fragmentation, mergers and takeovers of such formations are very clearly seen, starting from the appearance of Al-Qaida in Syria in 88. Blue lines indicate union and cooperation relationships. Here are some episodes of combat engagement marked on the Stanford scheme. July 2012 of the Year - Dzhebhat en Nusra and the Free Syrian Army jointly seize the police base. December 2012 of the Year - in response to the announcement by the United States of Dzhebhat an Nusra as a terrorist organization, allied groups, including members of the Free Syrian Army, protest against US actions. January 2013 of the Year - En-Nusra and other groups subsequently included in the Islamic Front jointly seize the Syrian air force base in Taftanaz. March 2013 of the Year - Al-Nusra and Ahrar ash-Sham jointly seize Raqqah, which later becomes the capital of the Islamic State in Syria. Stanford scheme is absolutely clearly shows the network nature of the relationship.

Here - Stanford shows - this is a network. In fact, just the same people change the flag depending on the task and the specific source of funding.

A well-known photograph in which Senator McCain met with the leaders of the Free Syrian Army in May, 2013. Here you can see its leaders: the commander is General Salem Idris, Mohammad Nour, known for the trade in hostages. The interlocutor of McCain - Ibrahim Al-Badri, at that time already listed in the list of the five most dangerous terrorists wanted by the United States. Following the trip, McCain argued that the leaders of the SSA are "moderate people and can be trusted."

“I understand and fully approve of this when America is trying to prevent terrorism around the world. After all, we are a force of good,” McCain said.
At the moment, this very person with whom McCain is talking is Caliph Ibrahim El-Baghdadi, that is, the leader of the Islamic State.
"You can’t name the exact number of groups currently operating in Syria, because groups are created, broken up and again combined at certain points, depending on who pays and on the operation they have to perform ... By funding jihadists, you finance all militants in the region, you can not say that your money goes to the needs of a certain group and no other ", - said the journalist, political scientist Thierry Meyssan.

Relevant question. Why do they all do it? There is a version. America, as a world leader, needs a bogey. Terrible enemy.

The “power of good” needs the “power of evil” in order to consolidate its power, to build subordinates. This force must obviously be evil, bloody, really frightening. One condition - it must be such a force that under no circumstances can defeat America. That, by the way, was at one time considered German Nazism, which they cultivated together with the British for known purposes. Then, however, it turned out that they overdo it. As, actually, and with ISIS.

The hitch is that Russia's position is distinguished by the utmost clarity of the world - it is possible to fight terrorism only by restoring a legal, legitimate state. Well, we do not have, in our operation, a different force on the ground except the Syrian army and its allies. And our task is to ensure the advance of this army from the air. Anyone who fights against - a military opponent to be destroyed. Only in this way can the army advance. Though Syrian, even American. If the goal is to defeat terrorism. And therefore, the terrorists will be destroyed regardless of the affiliation, the color of the flag and the source of funding.

    And they cut their heads long before ISIS, with its outstanding PR.

    Yeah, and recently I saw their new execution of a captured Syrian tank soldier .... they were crushed alive by the caterpillar of a tank ..... non-human freaks.
    I welcome any number of half-ton bombs dropped on the heads of this Syrian opposition.

      Belarusian Defense Minister: if the US gives the opposition Assad MANPADS, the "freebie" for the Russian army will end

      26.10.2015 IN THE COUNTRY News
      The Minister of Defense of Belarus, Lieutenant General Andrei Ravkov, was not very optimistic about the situation with the use of Russian aviation in Syria. On the evening of October 25, the program “Contours” of ONT TV channel showed the plot from the seminar held on October 22 in Baranavichy with the leaders of the republican media, where the head of the Belarusian defense department spoke, including about the Russian military operation in the Middle East.
      “The only problem with the use of aviation in that area is that four more entities, apart from Russia, pick their fingers in this airspace. Of course, I can name them, but I won’t, ”Ravkov said. - This is now the main problem for the Russians. The Russians did more in Syria in three weeks than the Americans in a year. It really is. Because the Americans have their own interests there. ”
      “But this infection by the name of ISIS,” as the Minister of Defense noted, “moves from below, from underbelly, including the former Soviet Union.” These are Russia, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan. “And only the Russians now honestly not only support the regime of Bashar al-Assad (they have their own base with a port there), but also look further and fight with ISIS,” Ravkov stated.
      “A positive feature of the current situation” in Syria for the Russian military, he called ISIS’s lack of air defense equipment. “And if the Americans keep their promise and give the Ishilovites they support - those who are against the Assad government and give this moderate opposition portable anti-aircraft missile systems, the freebie will end. It will be completely different, ”Ravkov said.

      2. The issue with the air base has been resolved. There will be no base!

        "About friends. Comrades"
        "" By entering the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Vietnam has given control of its future to the wrong hands
        Sergey SOLODOVNIK | 26.10.2015/00/00 | XNUMX:XNUMX
        News from the Syrian fronts noticeably diverted attention from such an event in the Pacific Ocean as the signing on October 5, 2015 in Atlanta by 12 countries (USA, Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Chile and Peru) Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreements.

        Among the signatory countries of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement is Vietnam, a country with a population of over 90 million people. Compare the two events. The first happened on May 29, 2015, when Vietnam signed an agreement on the creation of a free trade zone (FTA) with the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). The second is the signing of the TPP agreement by Vietnam on October 5, 2015.
        ... The conclusions for Russia are obvious. Russia remains outside the new Pacific ring created by the United States, and therefore together with China. China remains outside the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which means that its main financial and trade battles with America are ahead. "" ""

          With Vietnam, it is also not entirely clear, Russia has a technical support point for long-range aviation there and mattress officers were sent when they demanded that the Vietcong remove our point, "like PNH amerikosy, we ourselves know who to be friends with" So ... hi

        You think what you say!
        In addition, a field is not a well from which a million barrels are poured out per day, it is a distributed facility with hundreds and thousands of wells, with energy supply, pipelines and other infrastructure, and destroying such an object is not an easy task.

          Not true! There are no such fortresses that the Bolsheviks could not take. We have solved a number of difficult tasks. We have overthrown capitalism. We took power. We have built the largest socialist industry. I.V. Stalin

          You might think that all these pipelines go in different directions. And the power supply does not come from a few (even dozens) of large generating facilities. Key objects are disabled from the air for a week. Another thing is when there is no question of destroying the infrastructure, which will need to be restored after the IG Kerdyk arrives.

          A couple of tankers to flood

          No one will drown tankers with the flags of all kinds of banana islands. And nobody will hang flags of the IG. If only quietly, mine for example in ports - and silence. But oil spills ... you understand - no one will do it.

    What can be added to the author’s statements, unless we completely agree, especially since our President spoke very clearly and specifically on this topic in his speech to the Valdai Club members: “... how do“ moderate militants ”differ from ISIS members, because do they more "gently and moderately" cut off the heads of their victims? ", but in general they are armed bandits whoever they call themselves and in any case (if they do not surrender) they must be destroyed, period! And everything else is sheer verbiage and "double standards"!

    It is necessary to fight for a legitimate state. However, those who are not happy interpret the term "legitimate" very freely, which confuses others. Better to use the term "legal authority". Although, from their point of view, the world community at any time can declare the laws of another country illegal, which is legal and legitimate from the point of view of the test ethics.
    In short, if we follow the line of Western legal discourse, it is he, the West, who determines what is legal and what is not. And this is obviously a losing situation.

    The main thing here is without jerking.
    Assad is fighting, we are simply on his side.
    Ask someone else, we will smash the IG on their territory.
    But while this is a purely meat grinder, the physical destruction of the IG.
    While they climb into Syria, we will crush them in Syria.
    It’s just our task to crush them in more quantity,
    than the one that comes to Syria from neighboring countries.
