Media: the updated plan of the Pentagon to combat ISIS does not meet the new realities

37
On Wednesday, the head of the Pentagon, Carter, presented in the Senate an updated plan to combat the "Islamic State", which analysts of The National Interest called the news inappropriate to the new realities.




“According to the plan, the US-led coalition troops should focus attacks on Rakka and Ramadi - the most fortified positions of the IG in Syria and Iraq, respectively. The operations of the American special forces should play a more significant role in this struggle, and the US Air Force should provide support to the troops of the Syrian opposition from the air, ”the agency quotes the magazine. Ридус.

At the hearing, Carter stressed that the United States and the Russian Federation look at resolving the situation differently. “We do not cooperate with Russia, we will not allow Russia to influence the course or pace of our campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq or Syria,” he said.

According to experts of the magazine, “Obama’s decision to strengthen his military presence in Syria does not meet the new realities,” and does not agree with the Russian presence in the region.

“In order to influence the post-war reorganization of Syria, Washington must either return the“ liberated ”territories under the control of the Assad government or support a well-armed opposition,” they note.

The first option for Washington is unacceptable, and the second will require the conduct of war on the 2 front - against the IS and government forces, which ultimately will lead to a mediated conflict between the US and Russia.

In this regard, Robert Kantelmo, deputy head of the journal's expert center, advises Washington not to take unnecessary steps in Syria, but “focus on the state of affairs in Iraq and assist Baghdad and Iraqi Kurds, who are also fighting the IS.”

      The head of the Pentagon demonstrates a complete lack of intelligence. "Wage war on 2 fronts." Then let him immediately demand a nuclear strike, otherwise his whole undertaking will fail. Or does he expect Europeans to pay for their scam?

    a lot of hasty decisions ... and fuss ..

    quote ... The operations of the American special forces should play a more significant role in this fight, and the US Air Force should provide support for the Syrian opposition troops from the air, "

    and how do they imagine it ... will they appoint moderates? we will wait two weeks before the next meeting in Syria ..

      They can send instructors to the Kurds, though the Turks will not like it. It means that the Americans will stagger Turkey at the same time, the elections are there right now.
      It is unlikely that they will send their special forces to combat missions, suddenly there they get a bomb head accidentally.

    What else do they have to do? They no longer know how to decently get out of this awkward situation. I think they are now forced to go to some impromptu.

    Well, an intelligent person would never say that, given that the USA is now in shit on the very top with the effectiveness of its presence in Iraq, in Syria - and THE WHOLE WORLD UNDERSTANDS THIS !!!.

    “We do not cooperate with Russia, we we will not allow Russia to influence on the course or pace of our campaign against IS in Iraq or Syria ”

    While at the head of the Pentagon there will be such d ... as Carter, and in the Senate McCain - there is no need to even dream of any kind of detente. Let's see what the updated plan will turn out for the Americans themselves. I have the feeling that they want to use their special forces to cover the Igil thugs from Russian air strikes.

    This is money for the Caucasus.
    This is Ukraine’s gas.
    Cuba - a great debt forgiven,
    And in Russian - x *** th scored.

    It seems that the Russian state has money for everything, including the war in Syria and “fraternal help” to Africa, “mercy” for Vasilyeva or “golden parachutes” for the most insignificant deputies, but there is no money to solve the darkness of accumulated internal problems.

    We can lose in Syria if we allow political transformations (the election of a new president) with the participation of the "Syrian opposition." The West will do everything to plant "their own", and they know how to do it. And first of all, the "new president",
    displace our bases from Syria. Therefore, we should not freeze the situation, but at least not to free Alavia, and at the very least, all of Syria.

      Do not worry Assad could not resist without our intervention. And now he will definitely hold everything in his hands. Well, as always, time is needed to solve the problem in Syria. We do not live in a fairy tale! So be patient and calm! Everything will be wink type top! bully

      If the Opps take Raqqa (and everything goes to this - the IG will lay down arms on orders from the USA, sprinkling for a look), then the question will be about the division of Syria or about reformatting the power in Syria under the conditions of the State Department

    The failure situation with ISIS bombings lasting a whole year began to creep out and began to ask questions to some people. The Americans, under the influence of information from Syria, will simply be forced to bomb ISIS in Iraq and the gunners have already been sent

    At the hearing, Carter stressed that the United States and the Russian Federation look at resolving the situation differently. “We do not cooperate with Russia, we will not allow Russia to influence the course or pace of our campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq or Syria,” he said.
    And Russia will not be allowed to ask.
    Russia influenced the course and pace of the American company when the videoconferencing launched its first attacks on ISIS, and when Caliber flew in from the Caspian on October 7, then the situation changed completely, and the mattresses can only state that the solution to the Syrian issue is hands of Russia.

    I don’t know what he presented there, but I think that they will slow down military pressure (so leading to the expansion of ISIS). Well, they still lose tens of tons of weapons. To ensure maneuver in relation to Assad's offensive (transfer of forces and means) in order to minimize it. In parallel, there will be a wave (tsunami) in the media and they will try to put the negotiation process under control. Well, as always, someone is fighting there and I am the winner.

    The month of the participation of the Russian air forces in the counter-terrorist operation in Syria and the demonstration of combat training and new weapons broke the primitive US military doctrine, based on the actions of the navy and aviation against countries that do not have good air defense systems.
