According to the Department of State, one day of bombing facilities in the Middle East costs the US budget $ 8 million, while Russia spends from 2 to 4 million for these purposes, RIA News.


The State Department: US $ 5,000,000,000 a day is spent on air strikes by the US Air Force. Russia spends up to these times up to 8x.


“It’s about 2-4 millions (dollars) a day, maybe more,” Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland told Congress, referring to Russian costs.

Another assistant secretary of state, Ann Patterson, who oversees the Middle East, spoke about the spending of Americans, who, she said, make up "about 8 million dollars a day."

To the question of one of the legislators, “then why do we deliver eight times less air strikes in Syria than Russia,” the assistant answered: “This figure includes Iraq and our entire air campaign. Well, we are not Russians, we have other standards. ”

    as Brezhnev said, the economy should be economical, but in fact, it’s just thinking with your head, and not at random schools with hospitals and wedding caravans, we carry out reconnaissance, then bombing ...

      To the question of one of the legislators, “then why do we deliver eight times less air strikes in Syria than Russia,” the assistant replied: “This figure includes Iraq and our entire air campaign. Well, we are not Russian, we have different standards. ”

      Not standards, but their appetites are different.
      Cut budget funds - Western technology.
      They have no time to deal with the destruction of ISIS, they are busy mastering the budget.
      The results are different:
      We are burying terrorists in the ground.
      They master bucks.

      The question is of course interesting, if in a month we did much more and more effectively than minke whales for a whole year and spent much less, the question arises, why banded mice are still considered exceptional and still teach everyone how to live?

      The State Department: US $ 5,000,000,000 a day is spent on air strikes by the US Air Force. Russia spends up to these times up to 8x.

      And all by the fact that the Americans use weapons and related services for everything, in the cost of which lies a huge percentage on cut. That's why they have everything so expensive and inefficient request No wonder, just old, good amecor corruption laughing

      One American F-22, calculated on the weight of an Au, weighs about 9 TONS! Ammunition for it and absolutely everything else (maintenance, consumables) cost the same or more. Not much cheaper than the rest of the coalition aviation. It is originally. And add the corruption component here .. 8 Lyamov are state deputies otmazatsya from Congress. There, if everything is correctly calculated, the amount by a couple of orders can easily increase bully

    If the winner in the shooting competition was the one who spent more money on ammunition, and not the one who hit the target, the Americans would not be equal. They would attach a printing press instead of a machine gun to a machine gun.

    The Americans have been bombing for 1,5 years. Almost everyone is in Iraq.
    Russia - 1,5 months in Syria.
    In a year and a half, it will be clear how many raids per day
    each side will do, and what are the gains from these
    raids of this on earth.

    American successes:
    So far, one big city of Tikrit has been recaptured from IS in Iraq
    and several small towns. The main task is to recapture Mosul.

    Russian successes:
    Syrian army went on the offensive after several
    years of retreats and loss of territory.
    But so far not a single large city has been taken.

    The cost of any component of the US armament is higher than the cost of any product unit in Russia.

    Помощник госсекретаря, Энн Паттерсон, когда говорит о завышенных военных затратах американцев на Ближнем Востоке по сравнению с русскими:"Ну и мы не русские, у нас другие стандарты», отлично знает предмет спора. Американцы воюют с комфортом. Одной туалетной бумаги сколько тратят (это же война, а на войне страшно). Да и Присяга наших государств отличается. Присяга офицера США: "Я (фамилия, имя), вступая в должность (указывается должность или звание), торжественно клянусь поддерживать и защищать Конституцию Соединенных Штатов от всех ее врагов, иностранных или внутренних, относиться к ней с верой и преданностью. Я принимаю на себя это обязательство свободно, понимаю его буквально и не имею цели его нарушить. Я хорошо и добросовестно буду исполнять обязанности, налагаемые на меня тем званием, которое я получаю. Да поможет мне Бог!" То есть, офицер США защищает их Конституцию. Все для этого делает "хорошо и добросовестно",а не "отлично" и "беззаветно".
    Присяга РФ: "Я, (фамилия, имя, отчество), торжественно присягаю на верность своему Отечеству — Российской Федерации. Клянусь свято соблюдать Конституцию Российской Федерации, строго выполнять требования воинских уставов, приказы командиров и начальников. Клянусь достойно исполнять воинский долг, мужественно защищать свободу, независимость и конституционный строй России, народ и Отечество». Видите разницу? Присяга на верность Отечеству, мужественная защита свободы, независимости, конституционного строя, народа и Отечества. Так что война-это не комфорт, а тяжелая и опасная действительность. Не для американцев она!
