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.

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. ”

      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.

        It's just that toilet paper is much more expensive for them, and in connection with new trends, many "ladies', etc. things" have to be spent.

      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?

      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.

      To make up such an equation you need to turn to common sense.
      Contact me.
      Answer: your equation does not make sense. Not the same initial input! 1.5 years, 1.5 months, the second introductory, territories are different.
      Bumm! Straight to the head !!!
      ZERO!
      In a year and a half, it will be clear how many raids per day

      It would seem true, but the “worm” of doubt has been introduced, about the need and correctness, once again ruined the equation.
      conclusion: "mathematics" is impartial, there is no politics behind it, and this is common sense.

    The cost of any component of the US armament is higher than the cost of any product unit in Russia. Theft from the budget has a legal form in the form of increased costs confirmed by Congress and the House of Representatives. Theft is hidden for the time being from the Treasury to the Moscow Region and from Moscow Region to production and production.

    Assistant Secretary of State, Ann Patterson, when he speaks about the overstated military costs of Americans in the Middle East compared to Russians: “Well, we are not Russians, we have different standards,” the subject of the dispute is well aware. Americans fight with comfort. How much do they spend on toilet paper ( it’s a war, but in a war it’s scary.) And the Oath of our states is different. Oath of the US officer: “I (surname, name), taking office (the position or title is indicated), solemnly swear to support and protect the United States Constitution from all of it enemies, foreign or domestic, treat her with faith and devotion. I accept this obligation freely, I understand it literally and have no purpose to violate it. I will fulfill the duties imposed on me with the rank that I receive in a good and conscientious manner. God help me! ”That is, a US officer defends their Constitution. He does everything“ well and in good faith ”, and not“ perfectly ”and“ selflessly ”for this.
    Oath of the Russian Federation: "I, (surname, name, patronymic), solemnly swear allegiance to my Fatherland - the Russian Federation. I swear to abide by the Constitution of the Russian Federation, strictly abide by the requirements of military regulations, orders of commanders and commanders. I swear to fulfill military duty with dignity and courageously defend freedom, independence and the constitutional system of Russia, the people and the Fatherland. "See the difference? An oath of allegiance to the Fatherland, a courageous defense of freedom, independence, the constitutional system, people and the Fatherland. So war is not comfort, but a difficult and dangerous reality. Not for Americans she!
