American General: The balance of forces in Syria is now in favor of Bashar Assad

21
Chairman Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said during the Senate hearings that the position of Syrian President Bashar Assad was greatly strengthened after Iran and the Russian Federation began to provide him with military assistance.




“The balance of power is now in favor of Assad,” RIA quotes him. "News".

In addition, US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter noted that in the issue of the removal of the Syrian president from power, Washington, first of all, is guided by a political approach.

A criticism of these statements was made by Republican Senator Lidsey Graham, who stressed that the position of Assad was "exceptionally strong", and the United States actually "transferred Syria to Russia and Iran."

“If I were Assad, then for me it would be a good day, because the US government made it clear that it is not going to fight to dislodge me,” he said.

Washington has repeatedly stated that they want to achieve the resignation of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and therefore oppose any support for it.

        I don’t understand why the Iranian army is so extolled, they often mention the IRGC. Iran, when was the last time and where did he really fight to talk about the special experience and qualities of his soldiers and general advisers who die there like flies ??? I don’t ask about victories at all ... Technique is far from perfect. How can the Iranian army help Syria? In my opinion, one of our motorized rifle divisions is worth its entire army. Therefore, there are no special reasons for joy when they write for the hundredth time that Iran allegedly sent troops to a neighbor.

          I agree with you, but the IRGC will do very well in the fight against the Mujahideen.

        - Actually, yes.
        Russia chose the exact time. Babama will not dare to drop her baseboard rating even more. In addition, he is already a "lame duck."
        Because there will be a lot of chatter, footsteps but little action.

      Mr. Evidence acknowledged a well-known fact. For this, the operation began in the air. The army is at war, and the population begins to rebuild the country. The political process of reconciliation will follow. Assad did not promise all this in vain.

      By the way, in Iran, the news was that the infantry arrived and silence ...

      In the area of ​​the Syrian city of Aleppo, the Syrian army, together with militias, Shiite volunteers, separate units of the Lebanese Hezbollah and the IRGC of Iran, are conducting two attacks with the support of the Russian Air Force. One blow is delivered southeast of Aleppo by an army group under the command of one of the most famous commanders of the Syrian army, Colonel Suheil al-Hassan, with the aim of releasing the Kvers air base, where Syrian Air Force personnel and cadets have been defending since the end of 2012. The second strike is delivered south and southwest of Aleppo, and it appears to be part of a general offensive operation by government forces in northwestern Syria. A significant part of the government forces leading the offensive southwest of Aleppo are Shiite detachments from Iraq and from among the Afghan Shiites (Hazaras), as well as Hezbollah and IRGC fighters.
      It is likely that at least several hundred Iranian IRGC troops are currently located in that area, which seem to be exercised both by general leadership and direct command of the Iraqi and Afghan volunteer units, and the presence of small Iranian strike units is also possible. This inevitably led to an increase in losses, now almost every day there are reports of the death of Iranians in Syria. The head of the IRGC public relations department, General Ramezan Sharif, confirmed on Friday October 23 an increase in the number of military advisers in Syria and said that the number of IRGC Iranian soldiers killed there over the past two days was 8 people and that the deaths were mainly from the Ansar unit.

    I love how the pendos don't scorch. They used to hide behind the fact that Assad is a dictator and murderer of his own people, in order to maintain world peace, we are obliged to build democracy in Syria. And here, even to maintain this concept is not ruined. It must be stupidly removed for political reasons. And so it’s simple and open - he is not pleasing to us and is not mortifying. Just like the children of rich parents, everything is so exceptional that you can not just everything, but in general everything that can come into their little skull box.

    Of course, the Iranian army is not a couple of the Russian, but there is fish for fishlessness and cancer, and in Syria there is a trite lack of infantry on the side of government troops. So we are waiting for the Iranians.

    The balance of power in favor of Syria and peace in this country.

    I am haunted by vague doubts, but is this not the next US plan to weaken and ultimately the collapse of Russia and potential competitors?
    I'll try to justify.
    The United States creates chaos zones in Eurasia, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, but not in North America, thereby weakening the economy and stability in the regions and continents, which ultimately brings the United States economic, military and political dividends (Some kind of global Bloodsucker). If everything works out, who is in the “chocolate”?) USA. And if it doesn’t work out or “doesn’t work out” on purpose, the USA wash their hands and the Americans rivals and competitors have to rake up this mess, thereby spending and depleting their resources. In this case, again, who remains in the "chocolate"?) That's right, again the United States. The main thing is that this scenario will always be, it is inevitable, as long as there is a territory called the USA.
    So, God forbid, that Putin had the wisdom not to get into all those feces that knead the United States around the world at the same time, but to bring the matter to its logical end, so that this state of thieves and murderers returns to its origins, to wild prairies with wandering packs Native American tribes. Only then will the ball of Earth be given, albeit for a while, but to breathe more freely.

    ---------------------------
    Where do these talking helmets climb? Chairman of the US Chief of Staff Committee, what is your barracks business, what are the heads of state doing? It’s your job to be a calf, to execute orders and prepare plans of operations ... No, each four-star ass gives (or passes) "its own analysis of what is happening" ... Shoigu is generally silent with us until they ask him, only special generals give comments like Konashenkov ...

    The first part of the thesis - I agree, indeed, the Iranian army has not shown itself in the recent past.
    The second part of the thesis is very controversial - our division alone can never replace a whole army.
    And I hope that never, not one of our divisions, will have to replace an entire army in the database)
