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

43
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.

          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 opposition is two-faced. Like the states. Does it act on the principle of "hit the whites until they turn red and the red ones until they turn white"? It looks like this moderate is acting for one thing against government forces with state support. Hence the "successes". Sing along.

        There is a battle for control over oil southern and eastern provinces of Syria.
        "Moderation of 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 ...

          A little bit later, when the American special forces are in Syria, Obama will say that the Russian Federation is destroying the "moderates", that the Russian Federation needs to be stopped, and the world community must make every effort to do this ... And that aggressive Russia has found an ally, the 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.

    I would not be surprised if Obama announces the capture of the city of Raqqa in the coming days. It's just that the entire IS will go under the banner of the Free Syrian Army, and "oops" hi everyone is happy. America has won - IS is "in the house", we are "in trouble". It is necessary to accelerate the offensive of the SAA and capture key points of the territory of Syria. Soon there will be bargaining, and who has what will be the deciding factor.

      50 American Special Forces are 50 negotiators with a thick wad of money. They will come to an agreement with the groups and determine who is "frostbitten and who needs to be killed, or to give the coordinates to the Russians. If the Americans do it, it will not seem a little to us, the entire northeast 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 aroused an association in my mind: an American special forces soldier comes to the ISIS and says, “from today you are no longer an ISIS unit, but a moderate opposition, so we will inform you of your coordinates as a moderate opposition and they will not touch you, but you will only execute the population in moderate ways. " As the agreements are reached, the territories are declared liberated from the Ishils and are declared 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 IS, then some invented (created) "moderate opposition" under the wise leadership of the United States and with the leading role of Western "democracy" in their heads suddenly began to "win". But what and over whom? The Americans simply need to somehow justify their help to these "moderate thugs."

    Who is there and what "has achieved", the public will find out in 20 years at best. The traitors of Russia paid by the Americans are so happy in vain and give out "secret information". The "ax" to which the corrupt rats call Russia will first of all go over their skulls if they know little about Russian history. I drive every day and for a long time. Often I began to see such stickers on cars: "Do not touch my Power with ... ki! I spit your sanctions on x..yu!" (C). Liberasts can beg for a long time ..

    Frank delirium and an attempt to save their fosterlings by a simple "repainting". For several years, the Western struggle against ISIS could not advance even "a meter", and then suddenly, 45 km and nowhere, but to the capital of IS. Simply, Raqqa, this is the key to the oil fields of Syria and best of all, this nonsense, commented the head of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Andrey Kartapolov, at the summing up.
    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 Jibgat al-Nusra terrorist group decided to abandon their symbols and go under the banner of Harakat Ahrar ash-Sham, which the West refers to "moderate opposition".
