Did not want to fight with terrorists

77
Something interesting is happening. Washington is making efforts to combat the "Islamic state", the American presence in Syria is gradually increasing. Meanwhile, local allies are showing US ass. Almost literally: the Arabs participating in the "coalition" turned to the Americans as a fifth point. Like, bomb "IG" yourself, and we will take care of our own affairs.




In a report by Eric Schmitt and Michael Gordon in "New York Times" It is noted that the United States plans to intensify airstrikes on the positions of the "Islamic state" in Syria, and the Arab allies, who "with great pomp sent combat aircraft at the beginning of the mission a year ago," now reduced their participation in the campaign almost to zero. The air campaign against the militants is almost entirely carried out by US forces.

Most of the rulers of the Persian Gulf states seem to be concerned about the fate of the rebels fighting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Experts note that other Arab partners have quietly left the United States to fight the IG in splendid isolation.

And before the coalition allies did not show themselves in the best way: most of the airstrikes in Syria last year caused the United States. Other coalition members focused on the attacks of the “Islamic State” in Iraq.

According to The New York Times, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates transferred the bulk of their aircraft to the fight against Iranian-backed Huty insurgents in Yemen. In a sign of solidarity with Saudi Arabia, Jordan also sent combat aircraft to Yemen. Qatar still carries out combat missions over the territory of Syria, but its role remains very modest.

Lieutenant General Charles Brown explained to the publication that "all of them" (US coalition allies. - O. Ch.) Are engaged in "other things." True, he added that these allies still allow American pilots to use their bases.

It is curious that in this situation the Arab allies assert that they play an important role in the war.

“Jordan’s commitment to this struggle is unshakable,” said Dana Zureikat Daoud, a spokeswoman for the Jordanian embassy in Washington, Dana Zureikat Daoud. She believes that Jordan is still "an active partner and participant in the international coalition."

Even more curiously, the Western allies of the United States, for example, France and Australia, also limited their participation. In Syria, they struck a small number of blows. Their main power is directed to the positions of "IS" in Iraq.

Togo is worse with Canada: the new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, there promised to fulfill his election pledge and stop Ottawa from participating in the air campaign against IG.

Finally, none of the Western allies is ready to join the United States at the Incirlik air base in Turkey. But this step would lead to the simplification of operations against militants in the north of Syria and in Iraq.

Incirlik is much more convenient base: 15 flight minutes to the Syrian border. For comparison: from the bases of the Persian Gulf fly here almost five hours. But Australia and most European allies, including France, do not want to leave their bases in the Middle East.

The UK, previously noted "tough statements" about the fight against the "IG", showed itself to be a talker. Unlike France, its actions “do not correspond to its statements,” journalists say. Now the UK is bombing sites in Iraq, and in the sky of Syria only conducts surveillance and conducts reconnaissance flights.

Eight Arab and Western allies jointly carried out only about 5% of 2700 air strikes in Syria (compared to 30% of 5100 strikes in Iraq).

Meanwhile, US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter promised Congress that the air operation in Syria will be intensified. There will be attacks on the positions of "IG" near the oil fields, which remain one of the main financial sources of the group. However, these are only words; in fact, the US military faces problems. It's about the lethargy of the allies, Arab and Western.

In fact, in addition to the American forces, armed Syrian Kurdish troops, and with some Arab formations, are fighting the IG. General Brown notes their activity as well as the effectiveness of their actions. With the participation of US forces, this effectiveness is even greater. An example is a joint operation conducted in July, when the Kurds launched an offensive in northeastern Syria. On the other hand, the Kurds had problems: the ammunition was ending, the weather was nasty, poor coordination prevented, because of what the American commanders at that moment mainly focused on targets in the western part of Iraq.

Among the American plans, according to the general, is the build-up of attacks on secondary targets: stationary points, oil production facilities, bomb factories and other so-called critical nodes, from where the Islamic State’s military efforts are being fed.

"Moving" to the base Incirlik also increase the efficiency of air operations. Last month, American troops dropped a lot more bombs as missions became easier. This means that more targets were hit.

The other day, we will add on our own, the head of the Pentagon, Ashton Carter, also spoke out about the intensification of operations against the militants.

The United States may decide to send an additional number of troops to Syria. About this Ashton Carter said in an interview with television channel ABC News, reports RIA News".

Earlier, the agency reminds, it became known that the United States sent up to fifty special forces to Syria to coordinate operations against the "IG" with local forces.

“If we find other associations ready to fight IS, capable of it and having such a desire, there will be more. The President expressed his willingness to do this, I would certainly recommend it, but we need capable local forces, ”Mr. Carter said. He explained that in order to send more troops to Washington, local unions must "demonstrate the ability to fight IS."

Obviously, let us add on our own, in parallel with the search for ways to increase the effectiveness of their operations in Syria, the Americans are looking for those who are able to "demonstrate the ability." It seems that there are not so many of them - only the Kurds. Arab coalitioners are diligently avoiding participation in “other things” somewhere in Yemen. The Western Allies proved themselves either as “talkers” (Great Britain), or cooled towards the mission (France), or even quit the game (Canada). Against the background of successful Russian operations, such strife in the Western coalition looks unpleasant. Therefore, the head of the Pentagon and the American generals are doing everything to show their "power". But this demonstration looks more like a fashion show.

      The USSR was torn in due time, the turn of the USA came?

      The USSR did not overtake, but was betrayed and divided for ideological reasons by corrupt brainless communists in 1991.
      And the U.S. line came back in the 70s, when they abandoned the gold standard and after a few years did not come up with anything better than to make consumers out of their people and the rest of the world from the beginning of the Reagan presidency, which they called Reaganomics. As a result, US households lost their savings, the real level of salaries in the United States slipped by 1958, and household debts exceed their income by 25-30%. And even the resources of the USSR and the entire social camp were not enough for them for 20 years - they were devoured.

        I wonder how much this bullshit can post?
        Everything will fall into place if you simply compare the standard of living and salaries in the United States and in the Russian Federation, which is "rising, s-rocky." The ruble collapsed almost twice, cut off many and many salaries, motivating by some sanctions, but, the price of oil, you see, didn’t suit these incredible “economists” led by the guarantor. So it was necessary to build factories, and not to pull the next pipes. Or is it crazy besides drinking, selling raw materials, the collapse of the ruble, raising prices and lowering wages? So get away from the leadership of the country.
        In Brazil, salaries are even twice as high as in Russia. It’s somehow strange for a country that’s all getting up. Something for only 15 years everything can’t get up, only slogans and propaganda.

    Kurds fight with all Arab countries without legally having their own territory. It turns out that the amers cannot meet the interests of all parties involved. The stake on the Kurds is basically correct, but how can one maintain relations with the Turks? Apparently it is only possible by pinning down on them, or bribing, which is very difficult to do.

      During the wars in Iraq, the Americans also relied on the help of the Kurds. And instead of independence, the Kurds received the Islamic State.
      So it is unlikely that the Kurds will trust the United States. They fight for themselves, not refusing any help.

    With the behavior of the Arab allies of the United States, to the point of banality is clear. While they bombed the desert, they still imitated ebullient activity, and they were not going to bomb their "children".
    France and Australia also limited their participation.

    Australia has other problems - it is busy promoting the thesis of the disqualification of our athletes before the Olympics. For the country of descendants of convicts, this is the main task today.

    What else can you say - the East is a delicate matter, and even cunning, betrayal in one's interests and treachery in the East are elevated to the rank of dignity.
    No wonder they say: "The Arab says one thing, implies another, and plotting a third." So here - you (the states) fight, bomb, if anything - we are nearby, here literally lend a hand. And if you (the states) become completely unbearable, then we will immediately join!
    The position of the UAE and the Saudis in this regard is a win-win: Sysha will never recognize that they have come a thick polar fox. If they ever give a hint about this - that's it! hegemony built on aircraft carriers and the dollar will be covered with a copper basin.

    Although the Arabs are pretty good, the guys are quick-witted. or overly careful, here which side to look at. We admired how the Russian Aerospace Forces works, how the Caliber flies, just as they apparently popularly explained what complications they would face from Yemen and other internal exacerbations, and decided that "we will sit for now, think what and how, and then figure it out for yourself." States can’t get out of the mess in order not to lose face, so they have to bomb. Moreover, these creatures will now be bombed by infrastructure, so that Assad does not get it. In general, Dresden-2.
    The question is different - why is there still a passage yard in the sky? Statements about the supply of S-300 were bile and shouts of “S-300 rubbish! We will double-check them! In the meantime, we’ve just stopped flying in Syria” from God's chosen citizens, but the sky is still crammed with “extra” airplanes. Do employees want to bomb ISIS? Let them coordinate flights with the official leadership of the country. They didn’t coordinate flights - let an orchestra prepare to play the Phantom of ChiZha at Arlington.

    I'm afraid that is really so.

    And the saddest thing is that they, including they seem to have concentrated on destabilizing the situation in the last relatively safe stronghold of Asaad - Latakia. Until recently, it was a relatively safe place and now its surroundings are not painfully controlled. This is just a disaster. Ours are already being dragged to the base. They say temporarily ...

    The current situation with maintaining the database only proves the thesis from one well-known Soviet film that war is not someone who shoots someone, but who changes his mind who is relevant. The stakes in the Middle East today are too high and directly affect the entire military-political and economic structure in the world. Therefore, the leadership of each participating state leads the game that it considers profitable for itself. Unfortunately, to protect its state interests, Russia, too, was drawn into this international disassembly, which, judging by what is happening at the end, is still not visible as light at the end of the tunnel. It only follows from this that the situation in the world is very tense and our government must in fact deal with the management of the national economy and import substitution, and not just another chatter on this topic, develop our own processing industry, and not populate the hackneyed postulates of hydrocarbon price forecasts based on They are the layout of the next annual budget.

      The meat was abundant - in the markets, and at a price 2-3 times higher than in the state trade. If market prices were introduced in trade, meat would be plentiful everywhere!
      By the way, in the late 80s, they began to sell certain varieties of sausages — cooked smoked, uncooked smoked, and dried-cured sausages at market prices, which were stubbornly referred to as “cooperative” - and no one took this sausage. And this only at a price of 8-10 rubles per 1 kg instead of 4-5 rubles per kg. And meat, fish, etc. per capita with the most severe deficit in the USSR it was as if no higher than now.
