The US fears that weapons from the Russian Federation and Iran will fall to Hezbollah, and plan to supply weapons to the Arab opposition to Syria

42
At the congressional hearing, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, said that Washington fears that Russia and Iran weapon may fall into the hands of the Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah movement.




“We are just as concerned about the advanced weapons that come to Syria from Russia, from Iran. We discussed this concern with the Russians regularly, including at the presidential level, ”Nuland answers to the corresponding question of one of the deputies of the RIA congress.News».

In addition, Steve Warren, a spokesman for the US Central Command in the Middle East and North Africa (CENTCOM), said the United States would continue to supply weapons and ammunition to the Syrian Arab opposition, but not to the Kurds, as the Turkish authorities fear.

“At the moment we do not supply the people's self-defense (Kurdish) detachments with arms and ammunition. The weapons and ammunition we dropped (previously in Syria) were intended for the Syrian Arab forces. As of now, future supplies will also be targeted to Arabs - trusted members of the Syrian opposition, ”he said.

At the same time, Warren stressed that the decision on what kind of weapon will fall into Syria has not yet been made.

      Washington fears that Russian and Iranian weapons might fall into the hands of the Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah movement.

      You might think that their weapons, supplied to the so-called "Syrian Arab opposition formations," falling into the hands of terrorists, do not shoot civilians and soldiers of the Syrian army!
      They have it with AI and understands for purposes!
      There are no words censored for these striped perverts!

        Well, if this is possible, then the degree of danger emanating from a particular captured unit is small. Well, they captured a tank, well, two tanks. Now imagine the degree of survivability of such a technique in an intense battle. That is, no one will allow them to capture the tank division, and individual units do not pose a great danger.

        Such a statement is rather a preparation of public opinion for the justification of arms supplies, in fact, to terrorists. Including air defense weapons.

        PS
        Always touched the logical chains of individual representatives of the US State Department, such as: “We are afraid that Russian weapons will fall to the Papuans and that we will build a missile defense system in Europe ...”

            The terrorists do not have aviation and they are unlikely to be able to hijack a plane because it is doubtful that they have trained pilots, so first of all the air defense systems against the planes of the USA, Israel, Turkey and other "sponsors" of the bandits.

    So the USA is DANGEROUS that our weapons MAY fall into Hezbollah’s hands. And the fact that they themselves, like a sower, pour their weapons on the principle of "who will fall on their heads" - this they do not fear and this does not bother them.
    The answer to them is Lavrov’s phrase.

    Well, here again, in all its glory - the Anglo-Saxon double standards in action. For some reason, the cookie merchant does not want to say that the American weapons delivered to the Iraqi army were in the hands of ISIS terrorists. Or we don’t understand something, and these deliveries by the Americans of the Iraqi army and police weapons were part of a multi-track approach to equipping ISIS with modern (relatively) weapons and ammunition. wassat It was necessary to supply his brainchild!
    Warren said the US will continue to supply arms and ammunition to Syrian Arab opposition groups,
    Yeah! And in the end, the same terrorists will again have weapons and ammunition, as they are not called!
    I have the honor.

    that Russian and Iranian weapons could fall into the hands of the Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah movement.

    It would be better if I were preoccupied with the problems of American weapons scattered by US planes to anyone else. Although this question does not interest them, because dump to the one to whom they planned.

      Well, citizens from Israel will now begin to think up Hezbollah as savages with sticks, and so on, so it’s better to watch a video about Hezbollah’s actions in Syria.
      Their weapons are both Western and Soviet / Russian, but it’s clear that they operate “clearly” - they don’t scorch the white light, the uniform equipment is standard.

      By the way, judging by the pace with which the United States, France and other countries are supplying various weapons to Lebanon, including anti-tank weapons, soon Hezbollah will have exclusively Western models lol

      They have all sorts of weapons, including the western one.
      And even Israeli: what was once delivered to the Shah
      Iran, with which Israel was friends, and the fact that Israel
      supplied the Christian army and police in Lebanon.
      Mortars 120 mm Soltam, for example.
      In general, Hezbollah caused us a lot of headaches.
      They train in Iran, disciplined, to invent inventions.
      On the other hand, thanks to them, the IDF is very pulled
      in the tactics of anti-guerrilla warfare. And then with Fatah-Arafatovites
      relaxed in the early XNUMXs.

    Now, the goal of all parties to the conflict is to control the border with Turkey.
    At the moment, we do not supply arms and ammunition to the self-defense units (Kurds)
    - Turks are entrusted with taking care of the Kurds? Interesting. Although most likely, they will try to use the Kurds against the Syrian government, and only after some time (when Assad will be removed) will the Kurds be fed to the Turks.
    At the same time, our partners are doing everything possible to maintain the (kind of bearded) border with Turkey. The opportunities for partners are great. If (good can’t cope), then (angry bearded) will (have already begun) be intensely fed. Otherwise, kerdyk to their bearded son of a bitch.
    To justify, they pretend a concern like:
    We are just as concerned about advanced weapons that arrive in Syria from Russia, from Iran. We discussed this concern with the Russians regularly, including at the presidential level.

    PS
    Similarly: the border behind the bearded is the inevitable kerdyk of Assad.
