Military Review

Alliance of Moscow and Washington in Syria will not be

28
Putin accepts Assad in the Kremlin. The United States and Russia have agreed to create direct channels of operational communication. The war in Syria will become increasingly fierce.


two news came almost at the same time: the United States and Russia agreed to create direct channels of operational communications to avoid accidents in the airspace over Syria. And Russian President Vladimir Putin is receiving Syrian leader Bashar Assad in Moscow. A start for the Russian-American coalition in the Syrian conflict? Thus, the solution in this war is approaching, and therefore, perhaps, the end of the migration crisis, which has become a serious test for Europe and especially Germany? No matter how!

Alliance of Moscow and Washington in Syria will not beBecause the solution to the migration crisis in Europe is not a priority either for Russia or for the United States. And for those, and for others, it is about maintaining their influence and upholding national interests in the Middle East. In domestic policy, the Kremlin wants to divert attention from the economic crisis in Russia with the help of a successfully staged military operation in Syria - in this sense, the fight against ISIS in Syria replaces the previously propagandized image of “fascists in Ukraine”.

In foreign policy, Russian influence in the Middle East is at stake, and there the Kremlin has relied on the preservation of power by the Syrian leader Asad. The fact that he, for the first time since the beginning of the civil war in Syria in 2011, went abroad and was adopted in Moscow by Putin, is a clear signal of such a policy of the Kremlin. Naive is the one who hoped that Putin would refuse to support Assad.

But the Russian Middle East policy does not end with Assad: Moscow actually joined the Shiite axis in the Middle East (Iran, Iraq, Assad Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon) against Sunni forces in the region, which are located primarily in the countries of the Persian Gulf and IG controlled territories Iraq and Syria.

However, not only Russian, but also American policy in the Middle East was repeatedly incorrectly evaluated. According to the tradition of recent decades, it is often assumed that the United States will continue to show active military participation in the region.

However, this interpretation does not reflect the US Middle East strategy under the leadership of President Obama. His foreign policy has learned from the fiasco of US military intervention in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya - with sharp criticism inside the country - the lesson is that the US Middle East policy needs to be reconsidered and that it should be focused on the most important national interests, that is, to ensure the security of the State of Israel before all to prevent Iran’s nuclear weapons, which was reached by the conclusion of a historic agreement last summer.

Unlike earlier times, Iraq, whose leadership listens more to Tehran than to Washington, and Saudi Arabia no longer play such an important role for the United States. Because thanks to the US shale oil and gas revolution, for the first time since the 70 oil crisis, it is fully able to provide itself with energy resources on its own. All of this is the basis for Obama’s restraint policy, and not his alleged indecision or weakness.

Therefore, you should not rely on the Russian-American alliance in Syria. Why does the United States do a favor to Russia? Rather, we can count on the fact that the US activity in Syria will continue to decline gradually.

More likely, the United States will gradually completely stop military operations in Syria in the future, while Russia is plunging into a Shiite and Sunni religious war with an open finale and should be on guard not to repeat the sad American experience in the region. And for Europe, this means that the migration crisis in the near future may be exacerbated by the escalation of the conflict in Syria, which is so feared.

      Oh, what a liberalism. What kind of alliance is there with those who openly record us as enemies and scare us with the loss of aircraft. A little that immediately start the old song "Russia will pay a heavy price, etc.". Ugh, disgusted and even tired. We tolerate each other. The main guarantor of patience is the Strategic Missile Forces.
      The author probably does not know how the people of Russia belong to an exceptional nation. We treat well, if only we would not offer more friends, we were already friends in the nineties.
      And only to learn foreign policy from them. The head of the White House cannot connect two words when asked about greatness.

        However, this interpretation does not reflect the US Middle East strategy under the leadership of President Obama. His foreign policy has drawn from the fiasco of US military intervention in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya - with acute domestic criticism - a lesson, that the US Middle East policy needs to be reviewed and that it should be focused on the most important national interests, that is, on ensuring the security of the state of Israel and above all on the prevention of Iran’s nuclear weapons, which was achieved by the conclusion of a historic agreement last summer.


        It should be focused on the most important national interests, that is, on ensuring the security of the state of Israel.

    "The Kremlin", "the economic crisis in Russia" from the first lines ... only the author becomes interesting further. We are looking for the author: - Ingo Mannteufel, Head of the European Department and Editor-in-Chief of the Russian edition of DW-WORLD.DEDW. What to expect from the head of the online edition of Deutsche Welle and Russophobe? Ugh.

    ... while Russia is plunging into a religious war of Shiites and Sunnis with an open ending and should be on the alert so as not to repeat the sad American experience in the region.
    That's right, the rake is enough for everyone. The main thing is not to step on them. Let's hope and believe that it is with us that this will not happen. These are WE.

      Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov, chief of the main operations department of the General Staff of Russia, said that American and Russian military pilots conducted a joint training in the sky over Syria. According to him, the parties exchanged messages "about the parameters of their flight in Russian and English." The General Staff also emphasized that joint work to ensure flight safety over Syria was organized with Israel.

    Again the old song. By the participation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria, they want to distract the attention of Russians from internal problems. Smart United States will gradually come out of the Syrian conflict, and Russia, on the contrary, will be drawn into it, etc. The same song is constantly sung by Nadezhdin, Gozman, Ryzhkov and other "friends" of the West. Time will show that the choice of Russia was the right one.

    Hmm, the author is not Evgeny Yanovich negative

    Always the relationship between the United States and Russia, whether it be tsarist, the USSR or the Russian Federation, came down to one thing - "In the evening, money - in the morning chairs, in the morning chairs - in the evening money." The United States buys friends, but Russia can not afford it, there will not be enough money for all laughing In general, we are not friends for money drinks

    It is much easier to "distract" the population by the full occupation of the Ruins. Here is a brilliant military company with a demonstration of combat power and the superiority of domestic aircraft. And the sacred thing is the reunion of fraternal peoples and the salvation of Russians from banderization. So that any casualties in moderation will not be turned by society against the government. Yes, and you can always blame the crisis on the need to help restore the economy of newly acquired territories. One Crimea was enough for a year for public opinion. And imagine if Donbass, Odessa, Kiev are returned to the Homeland? So GDP will be worn for ten years.

      I patstalom! Do you even imagine the economic consequences of this step, not to mention the political component? Remember how the rich economy of Germany sank after the accession of a completely friendly GDR. And how Romania is afraid of Moldova's ardent desire to entwine itself in a passionate kiss of reunification.

    Mannteufel can be translated as a devil or devil.

    But here the hell said the true truth - Alliance of Moscow and Washington in Syria will not be

    Because America’s goal is to plant Russia deeper into Syrian sands.

    Is wisdom enough for the Commander-in-Chief without an alliance to declare victory in Syria in time and return troops to Russia, starting another peace process, such as Minsk, that’s the question ...

    Not that everyone attacked the author? sober restrained analysis from behind the hillock, so to speak. I quote;
    ... Neither Russia nor America is interested in the problem of mass migration in Europe ... I comment:
    Isn’t that so? Judging even by our comments, we are even gloating.
    ... The economic crisis in Russia ... Well, only a blind man does not see this.

    ... America, while obamka already afraid to climb on the BV ...
    And this is the whole truth - the silenks are not the same, but already burned.
    .
    ... America solved its oil problem through domestic reserves ...

    oh, how many farts broke here a year ago, predicting the ruin and depletion of American oil companies by hydraulic fracturing. However, in reality ...

    ... Russia faces immersion in a religious conflict in BV ...
    I want to warn the idiots, do not throw bonnets into the air beforehand.

    Distract attention from the crisis in the Russian Federation. Bredyatina. Firstly, to distract attention from constantly rising prices, it is not so easy even to ISIS, and secondly, we know why they are rising. The people have long been not a dumb herd. The author either fails and cannot take courage and admit that the FSA and Geyropa were again received by tinsel. It's my personal opinion.
