Why did the head of the Pentagon from the podium announce the possible start of a ground operation of the US Army in Syria and Iraq?

The other day, the head of the Pentagon, Ashton Carter, announced that Washington has prepared a plan to increase the effectiveness of the coalition’s actions against the Islamic State terrorist group. According to Carter, the United States is considering the possibility of a ground operation by American troops in Iraq and Syria. The head of the US military, which is noteworthy, from the rostrum, said that the elite units of the American army would be involved in the ground operation, which could become operational in the Syrian province of Racca and in the Iraqi province of Anbar. At the same time, Ashton identified the very line of hypothetical activity of American troops in this cross-border region: Ramadi-Raqqah is the line along which the American group will be created and, possibly, will grow.


Why did the head of the Pentagon from the podium announce the possible start of a ground operation of the US Army in Syria and Iraq?


Virtually all major news agencies spread this statement by Carter, prompting a real flurry of discussion online. Behind this squall, the main question remains almost unnoticed: did the "exclusivity" really clouded the mind of a representative of the US bureaucracy so much that it seemed to be pouring into the press, it would seem, secret information ... If Washington had not previously been seen to inform the public so widely This or that region of the world (usually, they began to bomb or infiltrate the land contingent, and with this information appeared about the US military activity), now it has come to the fact that the first The man in the Pentagon himself appeared in public, and himself spoke of military plans. Something from the Munichus class: "16: 00 - war with England." Instead of England in this context - ISIS ... In general, Carter could only name the exact time ...

From the point of view of the strategy, it would seem an absolutely talentless move, because now the very opponent (declaratively - ISIL), which American elite units in Syria and Iraq are about to incite, can analyze Mr. Carter’s statements troops to meet them "as it should be", having prepared in full (the program of active hostilities).

But, as they say, everything is not so simple ... After all, it is hardly worth writing off the statements of the head of the Pentagon about the plans in Syria and Iraq for Carter and his colleagues who are “exclusive.” The main effect, which the official of the American administration was obviously trying to achieve, is the media effect. And the main task that Carter must have set was - the task of disseminating information about the forthcoming ground operation through the mass media - was fully resolved by the head of the US military. Now everyone knows about the “plans of Washington” ...

But for what purpose could such a media situation be required by the States? This question is also relevant in connection with the fact that in leading American publications there appeared statements by political scientists that the Congress, in which the Republicans dominate, "kills" the initiative at the root. The reason may be that the ground operation in "certain areas" of Syria and Iraq may become the last loud word of Barack Obama. If he began his presidential career with applications for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in advance, now, being unable to return the “pacifist advance”, the incumbent president can go all-in. And this game, as it must be believed in the White House, is capable of giving a definite result. Which one

First, the “hail and the world” announced that the gallant American army will now just get down to business and how it will ask ... how it will, you understand, these igilovskim terrorists, at the same time restoring the clearly shaken authority of both the army itself and the current owner of the White House (as he himself believes) ...

Secondly, the igilovites themselves received a message from Carter, which, as the development of events with the salvation of hundreds of militants through Turkish territory shows, is flesh of the flesh of "democracy" ...

Taking into account the fact that the channels of communication with sponsors from terrorist organizations operating in Syria are getting smaller (the Russian Defense Ministry literally reports daily new strikes of the Russian Air Force on strongholds and militia’s communication centers), the ideal way of communication between the owners and armed vassals media. In this case, Mr. Carter sends a signal to "moderate friends" who have one "bad habit" - to cut heads, that, well, guys, we can soon be near you, and you should understand how to properly behave in of this situation ... If those who are flesh of the flesh are not ready to lead themselves “correctly” (from the American point of view), then they will try to get rid of them - however, not so effectively and not as quickly as it was originally intended across the ocean. If they lead “correctly”, then the whole world will be shown a beautiful picture showing how an American soldier “liberator” brings “peace and long-awaited democracy” to the long-suffering land of Iraq and Syria, and how Syrian and Iraqi women, children and certainly old people with Flowers meet their "savior". CNN, of course, will show how some "ordinary Ryan" using the M-16 rifle, finishing up morning coffee and shedding a big mack, destroyed up to two battalions of Igilovskiy bearded men, putting photos on the background of an oil rig on Instagram.

Thirdly, the United States will now vote from the scene that they (and only they) are fighting ISIS, and “these Russians” do not beat them in the wrong way or from the point of view of “ the right fight against terrorism. "

Several spoiled the picture of Carter and his boss, Baghdad. Iraqi Prime Minister spokesman Saad Al-Haditi said that Iraq did not actually invite American "liberators" to carry out a ground operation. Although why, in fact, "spoiled" ... After all, Washington was not used to asking anyone for permission, and therefore the words "asked" or "did not ask" for him ... on the side. But control over the oil rigs and the creation of a kind of springboard from which it will be possible to destabilize the situation (if, of course, it really stabilizes), both in Iraq and in Syria, is not sideways. Washington is captured by the main goal - to seize the initiative in the Middle East, and it seems that for this the United States is ready to do anything, even if it looks like a 100% adventure.

          Most likely cheap PR from some confusion "and sho to get something?".

          But who is stopping them from landing somewhere? Iraq is big - they land, they run around, they are popular under the camera, a couple of YouTube videos are pulled - the "peermoga" is ready! laughing

      Hi .. Narrow and not everything is covered. And the USA are great. And it's not the IG. .This is just an excuse. The United States will be able to agree with them. This is a clear message for the EU. Pipeline transport nodes are taken under control. The British dream comes true. The hydrocarbon raw materials are taken under control. that is why Iran is already not so dangerous. If you look more broadly and Russia falls into this category. Yes, well done, the EU will not go anywhere Trans-Ocean Agreement will be signed as cute. That's why, in fact, IS is needed. In an unstable region, you can reap huge benefits in a completely different place. And the propaganda show will unfold around this plan. This they can do. It seems to me that those who need it in the EU have already heard it. Another problem is less on the way to PAX AMERICA.

      A dry-running operation is needed so that we bomb less and the weapons that are supposedly of the opposition fully reach their addressees!

          Are these these? (There are no ISIS in the golan, there is the SSA) - so what's the difference? If Russia is ready to do the same with them (CCA)?
          Official Moscow is ready to help unite the efforts of the “Free Syrian Army” and the pro-government army in order to combat IG and other terrorist organizations ...
          Details on the website of REGNUM

          those are clear. SSA for Russia - not terrorists

      Yes, nothing fell apart - these sub-mattress coalitions, starting with NATO as lice on a yard dog.

      It’s just that all the “coalitioners” are sitting and waiting for the Americans to do what they’ll do: you, Yankees, let’s, and we’ll cover.
      Pendocs themselves have repeatedly complained that their "allies" are part of a coalition for a "tick", and then figs get you to do something. laughing

    There are several reasons:
    1: Creating a no-fly zone with the formation of a militant front against the Assad government
    2 introducing troops to seize part of Syria, after leaving there a contingent to form a separate state with its own puppet regime
    3 Create a new base in the Mediterranean to control our bases and counter our fleet.

    so there is already a "state" - .. gil.

    Here, Carter did everything right, having not yet carried out any operations, designated the zone of "US interests" and this message is addressed to Russia (striving for Syrian unity) and of course Assad, right there (US zone of responsibility), the main pipelines and the richest oil deposits It turns out that with our hands they will also take over economic and political successes; all this is quite possible and feasible, if Russia does not interfere

    It’s more like the internal purpose of the statement, everyone’s goals are clear to everyone, the set of instruments is clear, the United States wants to probe the situation inside the country, there the population is tired of international debt without gratitude and sane payoff, at least for the economy, there will soon be elections, more likely intelligence electorate, the margin of authority has been exhausted and reluctant to adventure.
    And from the announcement that there will be US special forces, no one learned anything new, not the fact that he is not there right now.

    But I wonder what will happen if Assad publicly declares that the introduction of troops and ground operations without his consent and the consent of the government of the country will be considered a military intervention and the next move will apply for membership in the CSTO?
    Well, figs with him from the CSTO, this is a difficult question. But from the point of view of international law, the troops entered into the territory of another state without the consent of the leadership of this country are unambiguously classified as military aggression and the troops entered become the legitimate target for the armed forces of the country subjected to aggression and its allies.
    Are Americans bored? Have you been importing coffins into the country for a long time? They will not be able to obtain any control zones with a stable environment. In the best case, they will be in Afghanistan, sitting in zones and going crazy, and the rest of the territory will be a free hunting zone, so there will be no oil or control.

    The territory is conquered or liberated only if there are ground troops there. Trying to save their investments. The Ishilovites in this territory or near it will more or less feel free because of the no-fly zone, and government troops will not go there, despite a gross violation of international rights: after all, the Syrian government did not invite the Syrian government. Moreover: Assad can declare amers aggressors. But the law is not "exclusive".

    Dear, what’s the matter? ISIS is only an expendable tool for the USA, they won’t save the militants, they will save their own skin, therefore a ground operation in these areas is simply necessary for the USA, 1) they bring the coalition to Iran, Iraq, Syria, Russia split, 2) blow the whole world about their victory over ISIS, 3) win politically pushing Russia into the background, 4) divide Syria according to their plan, 5) win economically, 6) show who is the "master" in the region, 6) strengthen pressure on Europe and Turkey and much more with a plus, a very serious "game" is played out here, the goal of this game is to "try to push Russia into its place", and therefore Assad, that’s why the opposition is “taken care of” and ISIS and their "salvation", the work of the jackals (Saudis, Qatar, partly Turkey) and here everyone has their own "interests

    Americans have long hoped for Iraqi
    army (as Russia hopes for the Syrian).
    But to storm the fortified cities - as they say,
    no fools.
    Americans recently stormed the city themselves
    Falluja (300 thousand inhabitants). It took 10,000
    American soldier (4 marines), 2000 Iraqi and
    700 English soldiers.
    The city was defended by about 4000 militants. The city was taken after
    intensive shelling and air strikes.
    Losses of Americans amounted to 120 killed and 500 wounded.
    The operation took 2 weeks.
    These figures are relevant for Syria. You need at least 5 to the city
    trained brigades.

      .... These figures are relevant for Syria. You need at least 5 to the city

      .... In principle, everything is correct .... Only cities in Syria - one name remains (everything is ruined and subject to demolition) ..... You can not take it - demolish (it will be cheaper) ..... I think after one such a "demolition" - there will not be anyone who wants to die for the caliphate ..... After all, the bearded ones are waiting to beat off every house, street, etc. ..... And when in this example they understand that they will simply be demolished, they will run for the most part ..... Maybe I'm mistaken, but they all want to live no matter what, everyone wants ... hi

    Not so long ago, the Americans themselves stormed the city of Fallujah (300 thousand inhabitants). It took 10,000 American soldiers (4 Marines), 2000 Iraqi and 700 English soldiers. The city was defended by about 4000 militants. The city was taken after intensive shelling and air strikes. ... The operation took 2 weeks. These figures are relevant for Syria. At least 5 trained teams are needed in the city.

    A prerequisite is the absence of local residents who decided to defend their city. laughing

      The same guys defended Falujah - former soldiers and officers of the Iraqi army of Saddam,
      who later founded the IG.

    Nevertheless, I share the soldiers, although former, and the local population, a priori - non-combatants. Before joining the militia or the partisans, of course.

      I understood your idea. But the militia helps little
      in the fight against a trained mechanized army. Berlin defended
      and volksturm with fauspatrons, and the Hitler youth, armed to the teeth,
      - dead poultices.

    Did the Syrians invite NATO troops or states to their territory? If not, then from the point of view of the Syrians this is aggression, and according to the UN Charter, any country has the right to a military rebuff to aggression. Syrians may ask us to provide them with additional material assistance with military equipment to repel aggression. RZSO of various calibers, Tochka-U and the rest under the cover of aviation ... Syrian training on the spot will be required ...

    And, in my opinion, this statement is not addressed to ISIS, but to Russia and partly to Syria and Iraq. Due to the fact that if things go on like this, then with the support of the Russian air forces, the SAR army will indeed disperse all the bearded. And this means the restoration of control and sovereignty in Syria, and then possibly in Iraq, over its territories, and goodbye to free oil and other geopolitical profits. Well, they say, and keep in mind "Mr. Putin" and "the non-shaking Assad" that there will be two "zones of occupation": the Syrian-Russian (undemocratic) and democratic American (that is, the "moderate Syrian opposition" and other "Friends of Syria") .

    Exclusivity ... As if everyone else does not suffer from it.
    Otherwise, since we still bring down their creation, it is more logical for them to destroy it themselves, especially when ours has already spread their main forces, at least morally.
    But they will still achieve the overthrow (assassination) of Assad, they will give a lot for this. Or a terrorist attack, including nuclear, or his own army, which is unlikely, or agents in special. operations. Just sure that they will not leave it like that.

    But I wonder what will happen if Assad publicly declares that the introduction of troops and ground operations without his consent and the consent of the government of the country will be considered a military intervention and the next move will apply for membership in the CSTO?

    Just now, I also thought about it, you can completely declare the introduction of US units as an act of intervention against a sovereign state, and recall that the targets for bombing on their sovereign Syrian territory, for the Russian air forces, come from the Syrian General Staff. And with 5000, it’s not particularly visible that there is messing around at the bottom, you know the delta force USA or Igilovites. Well, the very presence of US special forces is already a fatal outcome for them, judging by their special operations: the Black Hawk, the Eagle Claw, the Red Wings, the Spear of Neptune. laughing
