Ernest: Syrian opposition has achieved some success in battles with the IG

The “moderate” Syrian opposition made progress and approached the city of Ar-Raqqah (eastern Syria), which is considered the “capital” of the “Islamic state”, over a distance of 45 km, RIA News White House spokesman Josh Ernest.




“We see opposition forces making progress against Ar-Raqqi, the self-proclaimed capital of the Islamic State.” The forces of moderate opposition are now 45 kilometers from Ar-Raqqa, ”Ernest said.

Earlier, Obama announced the expansion of support for Syrian rebels fighting against the IG.

“The president decided to intensify our support for the (opposition) forces,” Ernest said on Friday.

According to him, "the United States will continue to strengthen the possibilities of moderate opposition on the ground in Syria."

In addition, the US President decided to send special forces to Syria 50 to train local forces and coordinate their actions.

        The "moderate" Syrian opposition has made progress ... Did he say that about those 50 special forces? Who were appointed "moderate"?

          By the way, remember how they screamed that Syria would become the second Afghanistan for Russia ... and there was such an unexpected turn, the troops themselves sent there ..

        Some kind of opposition is two-faced. Like the states. Acts on the principle of “beat whites until they turn red, and red until they whiten”? It seems that this moderate act for one against government forces with the support of the states. Hence the "successes." Sang.

        There is a battle for control over oil southern and eastern provinces of Syria.
        "Moderation of the opposition" is determined by the degree of participation of mattresses in the division of current and future dividends.

      I think that if the Russian Air Force forces accidentally cover 50 American special forces in Syria with the FAB, nothing terrible will happen. We just apologize later and that’s what the Americans always do ...

          Later, a little bit, when Amer Special Forces-Obama arrives in Syria, saying that the Russian Federation is destroying the "moderate", that the Russian Federation needs to be stopped, and the international community must do its best ... And that aggressive Russia has found an ally, dictator Assad. .. etc.

    The "moderate" Syrian opposition has made progress and approached 45 km to the city of Al-Raqqa, considered the "capital"

    From a change in terms of terms, what changes? The new name, the essence is the same. It’s difficult to come up with something new, naturally except for the name.

    The supply of weapons from the air by the Americans falls solely on the territory controlled by terrorists + refusal to show the maps where they are + the appearance of incomprehensible personalities from the CCA during the negotiations at which there was no press briefing with the participation of the CCA representative + military clashes inside ISIS groups show how the opposition’s success and Togo:
    The professional lie of the chief police chief of the planet + an attempt to appoint the opposition and give it meaning with American hands!

    I would not be surprised if in the coming days Obama announces the capture of the city of Al-Raqqa. It’s just that the whole IG will fall under the banner of the Free Syrian Army, and “oops” hi everyone is happy. America won - IG is in the house, we are in difficulty. It is necessary to accelerate the advance of the CAA and capture the key points of the territory of Syria. Soon there will be bargaining, and who has what will be the decisive factor.

      50 American commandos are 50 negotiators with a thick bundle of money. They will negotiate with the groups and determine who is "frostbitten and who needs to be wetted or the coordinates should be given to the Russians. If this is done by the Americans, it will not seem to us a little, the whole north-east of Syria will" fall off ".

    This is it about the Kurds, probably. The only card that can really be played in Syria. Yes, just do not want the Kurds to go to war on Raqqa. This is not their territory. And the band-eared special forces will not help, and the supply of weapons. Kurds generally have to fight back on two fronts - ISIS on the one hand, and Turks on the other. And oil to Turkey flows mainly through Iraqi Kurdistan! And, as I understand it, Syrian Kurds do not understand Iraqi too much. What mattress counts on. Then they will pit them in the struggle for power in Kurdistan, at the present moment - mythical. And now they need by all means - a resounding victory. Free Racca, even by bribing ISIS. At any cost before the SAR troops. During WWII, they were late with the opening of a second front and the capture of Berlin, as a result of 50 years they fought for Eastern Europe. They do not want to repeat their mistakes, only the power is not the same.

    State arrogance and lies have crossed all sorts of borders. Messages from their representatives:
    1) The United States sent 50 special forces to Syria
    2) The United States warned the Russian Federation not to shell areas where the US military
    3) The United States refused to tell the Russian Federation the coordinates of the locations of its military.
    What does this mean? A comparison of these three messages leads to one conclusion: the states are thus trying to stop the Russian operation in Syria in order to protect the Ishil terrorists.
    Personally, I see no reason for other conclusions.
    Messages about the advancement of the opposition caused an association in me: an Ameri-Special Forces soldier comes to the Ishilovites and says, “from now on you are no longer an ISIS unit, but a moderate opposition, so we will tell your coordinates as a moderate opposition and will not touch you, but you will only execute the population in moderate ways. " In accordance with the agreements, the territories are declared freed from Ishil and declared to be occupied by the opposition.
    With what success the coalition created by the states bombed Isil, such an option of the opposition’s struggle with Isis looks the most probable.

    As soon as our aviation inflicted tangible damage to the IS, so immediately, some kind of fictitious (created) "moderate opposition" under the wise leadership of the United States and with the guiding role of Western "democracy" in my head suddenly began to "win victories." Here are just some and over whom? Americans just need to somehow justify their help to these "moderate scumbags."

    Who is there and what has “achieved”, the public will know in 20 years at best. The traitors of Russia paid by the Americans are in vain so happy and give out "secret information." The “Ax”, to which corrupt rats call Russia, will first go through their skulls if they have little knowledge of Russian History. I drive every day and for a long time. Often I began to see such stickers on cars: "Do not touch with ... ki My power! I turned your sanctions on x..yu!" (C). Liberasts can begging for a long time ..

    Frank delirium and an attempt to save their fosterlings through a simple "repainting." For several years of the Western struggle with the IS, they could not even advance “by a meter”, and then suddenly, 45 km and nowhere, but to the capital of the IS. Simply, Raqqa, this is the key to the Syrian oil fields and best of all, this nonsense, commented Andrei Kartapolov, chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces, on the results.
    Terrorists are trying to replenish their gangs with new militants ... militants are trying to transfer their reserves from the territory of Iraq and other neighboring states. However, the level of preparation of these reserves and their moral and psychological state are extremely low. Therefore, gangsters who were surrounded or under fire by the Syrian government forces in several districts are trying to escape, declaring their belonging to the so-called "moderate opposition", and their leaders stop paying them money because of cowardice and unwillingness to fight.
    In order to receive political support and financial assistance from abroad, the leadership of a number of gangs that were part of the Djibgat al-Nusra terrorist group decided to abandon their symbolism and go under the banner “Characterize Ahrar al-Sham,” which the West refers to "moderate opposition."
