Military Review

Latvian servicemen can go to Iraq to fight the "Islamic State"

68
The representative of the Ministry of Defense of Latvia, Kaspar Galkin, said during a press conference that at the moment the authorities are considering the possibility of sending troops to Iraq to fight the militants of the Islamic State terrorist group (IG).




At the same time, he stressed that we are not talking about their participation in combat operations against militants - the option of providing assistance to local units is being considered, as is the case in Afghanistan.

“In any case, the decision on the participation of Latvia in this operation will be made by politicians,” quotes Galkina RIA "News"

It is worth noting that Latvia is part of an international coalition led by the United States, which was created to combat IS, but until that point its participation was limited to providing humanitarian assistance.

Earlier it was also reported that the possibility of sending their soldiers to Iraq to train the local military is being considered in Estonia.

    Ну что, США после пощечины, опомнились, сгрупировались, сделали анализ с выводами, и приступили к дальнейшему развалу Востока, С нами в каолицию не хотят, заключают договора в ССА, Курдами, да бы их привести к победе, перед выборами президента Сирии. Так сказать запрыгивают на ходу на идущий поезд, ну а эти "Балтийские Пикинесы" и рады стараться за педигри, или что то им пообещали от пирога.
    Ну а по теме, все эти потуги, с 50-ю спецназовцами, теперь с бойцами- "Балтийцами", все напоминает сценарий готовящейся провакации, по дискредитации наших ВКС, представьте, вдруг погибнет несколько "помощников" от якобы русской бомбы, Какой визг поднимется. Или готовятся раздербанить Сирию, как в случае с Германией после победы в ВОВ.

    Странно всё складывается, почти год проамериканская коалиция кого-то бомбила, от наземной операции все отказывались. Российские ВКС начали бомбить (не смотря на показываемый успех не всё мне однозначно понятно), армия Ассада начала наступать (правда как-то нерешительно, не до конца понимая всю дороговизну проводимых ВКС мероприятий) и тут американцы посылают аж 50 спецназовцев а их партнеры из Прибалтики тоже кого-то хотят послать в Сирию в подмогу. Блин начало как в анекдоте, только если эти спецы попадут в конкретный замес в Сирии, что делать всем остальным. Ведь не понятно, то ли американцы "демонстрируют присутствие", то ли нашли 50 самоубийц и решили их использовать, а прибалты не "догнали" ещё "тему" решили так на всякий случай пристроиться за америкосами. А если без шуток, в любой войне последнюю точку ставит пехота. Армия Ассада такими темпами в конце концов через годик дожмет ИГ (блин, мне всё таки не понятно почему наши наносят удары по штабам и тренировочным центрам и не одного удара по нефтянным скважинам и заводам), но к том америосы приготовят что-нибудь новое.

    Guys, well, stop laughing, this is first POLITICS !, and secondly ... well, secondly it may not sound like a topic, but Latvians always turned out to be not bad soldiers, I don’t say that the best but certainly not the worst, although if you recall what were the first regular parts of Soviet Russia? Well, they’ll go ... maybe they’ll even fight ..., the soldiers are supposed to obey orders ... and many of them will not come back ... mock it ... it's like that ...
