What will turn Qatar's military intervention in Syria

81
Earlier, on October 21, Qatar’s Foreign Minister Khalid Al-Attiyah made a very intriguing statement about the possible intervention of Qatari armed forces in the Syrian conflict. "If military intervention protects the Syrian people from the cruelty of the regime, we will do it," the world media quoted him as saying. In his speech, the Foreign Minister also mentioned "Turkish and Saudi brothers", but also Turkey and Saudi Arabia, however, in this situation, they preferred to keep silent and not to mention publicly about the interventions.


What will turn Qatar's military intervention in Syria

Qatar Air Force Fighters
The Tribune

Qatar has long been entrusted with the reputation of being a sponsor of various militant groups favored by the emirate’s monarchy, but the state hasn’t climbed much into open fighting. But in recent years, the situation has changed slightly, and Qatari soldiers happened to trample the land of Libya and Yemen. Yes, the Qatari presence in these countries was very limited in the composition of intergovernmental coalitions. But behind these actions with the naked eye are seen timid attempts to strengthen their power in the region, including with the help of such a popular tool in this business as the army.

The Qatari Armed Forces count for different data from 11 800 to 12 200 people. The country's military budget is two billion dollars a year, which, given the modest size of the army, is quite a lot.
If we divide the amount of the country's defense expenditures by the number of servicemen, then 170 thousand dollars will be issued for each. In Russia, for example, this figure is approximately 65,5 thousand per soldier.
The military equipment of the Qatar Armed Forces is mainly new models of the French military-industrial complex, but there are also German representatives, for example, Tanks Leopard and Mercedes Trucks. For example, the emirate has 62 MBT (main battle tank) Leopard 2A7 and up to 40 French MBT AMX-30. To all this is added several dozens of infantry fighting vehicles, armored vehicles with mine protection and armored personnel carriers.

Artillery of Qatar boasts German self-propelled guns with a caliber of 155 mm (the monarchy bought 24 units of such units, and how much I managed to get - a question) and twelve South African G5 self-propelled guns of the same caliber. The Qatari MLRS is represented by 18 Brazilian Astros and three Soviet Grads. In addition, the monarchs have a couple of hundreds of anti-tank missiles, including the American Javelins. This is where the representation of the “God of War” in the Qatari military forces ends, apart from various infantry mortars.

Among the anti-aircraft means an abundance of obvious new products from Qatar is not noticed. And it is logical that the country is not called on from scratch to sponsor Wahhabis and Islamic extremists around the world. And Western countries, despite their allied relations with the emirate, are still reluctant to sell her what may then turn out to be at the Al-Qaida militants *, Hamas, other radical groups and shoot at NATO planes or at all on civilian sides.

At the end of the 80s, the Americans were seriously offended by the monarchs of Qatar precisely because they had bought man-portable air defense systems from the United States from the Mujahideen of Afghanistan. The Americans suddenly remembered about "tight control over the circulation of MANPADS" and demanded the monarchs surrender them. Those refused, and as a result, the US Senate imposed a ban on the sale of any weapons to Qatar. Two years later, the Qataris agreed to the disposal of the "Left" MANPADS and the ban was lifted.

The current armament of Qatar’s air defense system consists mainly of the old British systems, which have remained since the emirate preferred to purchase weapon by Her Majesty. Nevertheless, a certain number of American, French and Soviet MANPADS are still in service with the state. It is also worth noting that in 2014, the Middle Eastern state signed a contract worth $ 7 billion with the United States for the supply of ten batteries of Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems. The supply of these air defense systems to the troops was not reported.

Currently, the main force of the monarchy's air force is the French fighters 14 Dassault "Mirage" 2000. In addition, the French have already ordered the new 24 Dassault "Rafale", and the Americans are going to put 24 attack helicopter "Apache". Interestingly, most of the state's air force is made up of various transport workers, as well as training and passenger aircraft.

The Arab naval forces include one landing ship and various patrol and rocket boats.

As for combat experience, his Qatari Armed Forces recently received only in Libya and Yemen. Given that in both of these campaigns, the Qatari presence was rather scanty, then there can be no talk of any serious "hardening" of the troops. In the same Libya, the Qatari contingent was limited to six Mirage fighters and a staff of military advisers for the rebels. In Yemen, about QNUMX Qatari military personnel and 1000 fighters were stationed, but their active participation in hostilities was not reported.

If we take earlier conflicts, the tankers of Qatar managed to make war against Saddam Hussein in the Persian Gulf in 1991.

Based on the foregoing, such an army, even with the support of the Saudis, should not be a serious threat to the demoralized forces of Assad. After all, the same Saudi Arabia suffers serious setbacks in the fight against the Yemeni rebels, many of whom for the first time took up arms. Of course, a possible Qatari-Saud intrusion into Syria will significantly undermine the already deplorable situation of Assad, but it has every chance of surviving a defensive conventional war against these states.


F-16
The eye of the planet

The greatest threat from the Qatari Armed Forces is represented by the Mirage fighters, but at the same time, Syria’s air defense has remained almost intact and the Qataris will enjoy less flying in the Syrian sky than in Yemen. And in it, by the way, the rebels shot down five Saudi fighters (two F-16 and three F-15) and one F-16 Morocco. Given that the Qatari pilots are at about the same level, and the Assad's anti-aircraft gunners are much better trained than the Yemeni rebels and have more advanced equipment, the conclusion suggests itself for itself.

Therefore, no real intervention by Qatar, at least without the serious support of other actors of the region (with the mandatory participation of Turkey), is out of the question.

By the way, Syria has already warned Qatar about the "hard reaction" to any military intervention. "If Qatar carries out its threat of intervention, then we will consider it as a direct aggression ... Our response will be very harsh," said Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al-Mekdad.

      Yes? And Qatar is already in Poland and the Baltic States, it is already in Belarus !!! And mind you, without aviation and cruise missile strikes ... Qatar is carrying out a "creeping expansion". He pushes his money everywhere, and then pulls up his interests. Assad did not want this, moreover, he was also so brave that he decided to resist. Well, let's see what happens next. One thing I can say is that the fight against Qatar will not be easy for us.

        "A senior source in the Russian Air Force said that Russia has plans to bombard the monarchies of the Gulf - Qatar and Saudi Arabia. It is absolutely no secret, such plans were developed during the Soviet era, since then they have been slightly changed, replacing the landing in a friendly at that time, Iraq to refuel in the air over the Caspian Sea, "the officer said. He noted that this can be done by both a link of Su-27 fighters and modern Su-34 bombers with additional tanks accompanied by the Su-27.

        “Today the situation is such that even if Su-34 does not have enough fuel to leave Iran’s airspace on return, they can sit right there,” he said, “the combat radius of Su-27 allows you to fly to the capitals of the monarchies and vice versa, the Su-34 is smaller. ”
        .. The source also said that the entire operation to destroy the ruling circles of the monarchies from the air will take no more than 24 hours. "

      Qatar is essentially the capital of ISIS, at least all regulation comes from there. Americans are ideologists, while Qatar and Saudis are the actual financing and management of the flow of money and weapons. In this story, the Turks look just idiots. They won’t receive any preferences from Assad’s fall; it’s short-sighted to rely on ISIS free oil if they win, but the fact that ISIS wants to come to Turkey is beyond doubt. In Qatar and Saudi Arabia, even now, those are the rules that ISIS enforces, and Turkey, in principle, is a secular state. It would be better for Edrogan to think about his fellow citizens, whom ISIS will cut out in half, because the second half will categorically not accept their ideology - the Turks are not meek sheep. ISIS fanatics in Turkish society will not gain even 10%, the rest will have to be forced or cut.

      "Not far from the Qatari capital, there is a large US military base Al-Udeid, which, in particular, was actively involved during the US military intervention in Iraq. The number of the US military there is more than 4 thousand people. For comparison, the emirate's own army numbers about 12 thousand people

      The base is equipped with the most modern communication and control systems. Carrying out constant radar reconnaissance of the entire region using special equipment, Washington thereby monitors all movements in two water arteries - the Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf.

      The base includes B-1B bombers, large transport aircraft C-130, C-17, tankers KC-10, KC-135, BPA (base patrol aircraft) R-3 Orion aircraft and E-8 long-range radar detection aircraft.

      In recent years, more than $ 100 million have been invested in the modernization of Al-Udeid. The base's runway can accommodate up to 100 combat aircraft. "

        Meat can be hired and a lot, which ISIS has demonstrated. But only when the bombs really started to fall on the heads somehow the number of "ideological" fighters began to decrease. And then Iran will fit in with great pleasure, and right across the Gulf straight. For them, eliminating such an adversary is "just a holiday of some sort," and the Jews will be forgotten in joy. Well, at least for a year or two for sure lol

      The number of ground forces - 8500 people, combat aircraft - 9 Mirage release 1999-2000, attack helicopters - not a single one (those that were ordered, this was a grandmother in two said), tanks - within 30-32 Abrams ...


      Well, actually from the Saudi warriors, like from a shit bullet. But with the Syrian pilots had to talk in the 90s in Kotlas on their retraining. Desperate guys and flew decently, and mastered the technique quickly. True time has passed a lot. yes

    Of course, a possible Qatari-Saudi invasion of Syria will significantly shake the already deplorable situation of Assad, but he has every chance to survive the defensive conventional war against these states.

    The devil is not so terrible as he is painted, Qatar will not go into Syria alone, they made a statement in the hope that those who wish to join them, like Turkey and the Saudis, are unlikely to cut relations with Russia at the root if Qatar he would risk introducing troops without the support of other countries, he would sign himself a death sentence.

    A sufficient analysis of the state of the Qatar Armed Forces and the country's capabilities, but the sayings "... for the demoralized forces of Assad" and "... will shake the already deplorable situation of Assad" somehow do not fit with the situation in Syria, at least covered by Russian news releases TV channels.
    In my opinion, Qatar's statement was directed primarily to mattress makers to assess the possibility of a coalition ground operation when the "moderate opposition" becomes very bad.

    It is very likely that Qatar will decide to get into a fight against Syria, especially with the support of the Saudis and America. The Americans will not refuse with their hands Qatari warriors to pull chestnuts out of the fire, they themselves do not want to climb too much. And I also want to check how Western equipment and weapons will fight against Russian weapons, so that the States will urge Qatar to get into a fight.

    I think this is of the same kind as sending the Ameri.Kan destroyer to the disputed territories of China. I repeat: Ponty clumsy and nothing more.
    The Qatari people are well aware that if something happens, the missiles will arrive not in ISIS (they will somehow sort it out, a little later), but in oil fields and industrial facilities in their country.

    12000 soldiers is roughly the size of one Soviet deployed division. How to fight such an army on foreign territory? Bluff! This is information support for the enemies of Syria, in case they want to get involved in the conflict. Only those willing are few, they would have conquered Syria long ago, if everyone had piled on. BUT! Iran, Russia and China can hang in such a way that after a century they will lick their wounds. Therefore, only one chatter. Well, if they move their "division", and the country will remain without an army, who will defend the country?

    This is not the point. Now Qatar will wait, as in the "45m" of the Americans, when Russia will drive out Ishil and occupy key facilities of the country under the guise of helping civilians. Russia, on the other hand, will not touch Qatar's troops, it's like attacking the United States. A new confrontation will begin, both in the military field and in the legal field.

    Let them try. They will taste bogatyr tuna basurman in the SAR. There, after all, our air defense is not very weak. And we also have a MANDATE. And let the Qataris show their Ausweis. Assad correctly said: "We will regard it as an invasion." If they don’t come to their senses, then they can get their oil industry. And by the way, where is it written that we cannot supply Syria "CLUB" (read "Caliber")? We have a MANDATE! And if not "calibrated", then you can help create the Qatar People's Arab Republic for example. And a place for refugees from all over the BV will be freed up. (Europe will understand and forgive) and the work is full for them, the same at the oil refinery. And then il. You understand the monarchy! And the Saudis will have a lesson.

And then Putin began to "rush" with some kind of "Caliber" and otherwise he would have to screech with fear!

    Of course, it would be tempting to "miss" the Qatari oil fields with gauges or bombers, it would be great to raise oil prices and eliminate a gas competitor at once. However, the Americans will raise an incredible squeal, therefore it is better to work with someone else's hands, and I think our Supreme mind will have enough for this. Many do not like Qatar, you just need to arm them and sponsor.
