The Pentagon: the probability of a collision in Syria, the pilots of the Russian Federation and the United States is small

23
The US military does not seek incidents with Russians in Syria, their probability is unlikely, since aviation two countries operates in different regions of the republic, transfers RIA News Pentagon spokesperson Jeff Davis statement.




“We do not seek any incidents with the Russians, and they are with us too,” said Davis.

"In general, we meet little, because we operate in different areas," he told reporters.

At the same time, “the US military, like any military, has the right to self-defense, but in this case we do not expect to have to use it,” added Davis.

He recalled that earlier the parties "concluded a memorandum of understanding on the actions in the skies of Syria."

      We also have the right to self-defense and we can use it.

        There is a right to self-defense, but it must be applied asymmetrically.
        There was a lot of talk about the S-300 in Syria. If this were true, then in principle it would be guaranteed to cover the entire airspace over Syria.

        We, unlike the United States, have one significant plus.
        We are legally located in Syria. We may not even transfer the complex to Assad, but it’s quite reasonable to place the videoconferencing during the operation.

          But in this case, the amars are the aggressor.
          What kind of defense does this representative mumble about ???
          Being an aggressor, there is a high probability of getting a wort.
          Syrians can break it. No one called Amerov to Syria.
          Mistress at home and then you can talk about defense.

            Our pilots have no time to be distracted by trifles - they WORK!

          Russia supplies anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria
          Russia has supplied anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria to prevent possible hijackings of aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) and retaliatory strikes, said the commander of the Russian VKS Viktor Bondarev.

          В общем наши так или иначе ПВО туда завезли.. далее как мне кажется должен быть "очерчен" круг запретный для самолётов других стран, так называемая "красная линия". ))) Интересно... где она пройдёт ))

    And on what basis do American aviation operate in SYRIA ... it is illegal there and they need to poke it in the nose like ISRAEL periodically bombing dubious targets in SYRIA ... hypocrites.

    Of course, it is better to avoid any incidents. However, I think that ours will not be particularly ceremonial violators or other buzoters. An example of this is two Turkish fighters, which Sushka kept on sight for a long time. So I understand that this subtle hint was correctly understood.

    I hope that our Syrians have already taught Syrians how to use the S-300 complexes. When you fly and these complexes graze you from the ground, the desire to enter the affected area disappears immediately!

    The situation is just class! - in some areas, these mu ... d ..- ahem the coalition drops its weapons, and smiles smartly at the sand in the desert. In other areas, our aircraft are really fighting terrorists.

    And just in case ... most likely against Syrian aviation or for provocation.

    I think that American pilots are sane guys (in contrast to their leadership in general and the president in particular) and will not arrange a brawl in the sky. For ours, I'm generally calm.

    Russia has supplied anti-aircraft missile systems (SAMs) to Syria to prevent possible hijackings of Russian aerospace forces and retaliatory strikes, said Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air and Space Forces Viktor Bondarev.

    “We have calculated all possible threats. We put there not only fighters, attack aircraft, bombers, helicopters, but also anti-aircraft missile systems. Because there can be various kinds of force majeure circumstances. Let's say hijacking a combat aircraft on the territory of a state adjacent to Syria and attacking us. And we must be ready for this, ”he said in an interview with the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.

    Is everything clear to everyone?

    there is a right to self-defense

    As he turned in time about the right to self-defense - seemingly by chance, just in case. That's just this mutual right.
