Obama: no-fly zones in Syria are counterproductive

39
Barack Obama called the idea of ​​creating non-flying zones in Syria counterproductive, reports Look with reference to the RIA "News».




"I decided that it was counterproductive," Obama said. In his opinion, we can only talk about security zones.

“But real safe zones would require ground operations from us,” he noted. “And this creates a whole series of new questions.”

The newspaper reminds that earlier a number of US government officials, including the chairman of the committee of chiefs of staff, Joseph Dunford, said that America "has the opportunity to establish a flight-free zone in Syria."

Moscow opposes the creation of such zones.

      Counterproductive is Putin's expression! Under the wise mows "partner" (also Putin introduced this soft, "politically correct" definition of politprosti.tut.ki)!

            only smoked does not want to remember that he considered the no-fly zones over Libya productive.
            you see something has changed his mind.

        Nineteen minutes and 50 seconds, to be exact, they were discussing the details of speech. A heart-to-heart conversation took a few seconds (throw through the thigh and suffocating)

        Counterproductive - the existence of the United States in the form as it is now, I think the destroyed Indians and not only will support me. It’s just that nothing sooner or later remains in the Universe without an answer.

      Looks like this is the price of restructuring the debt of Ukraine. Although maybe this is just one of the points. Time will reveal all the cards.

        Hardly! Rather, it is a real assessment of the military potential of the Russian Federation in Syria! Not for nothing that recently a local general made a statement saying that some kind of our bubble was preventing them from flying there!

        P.S. Bad flyers, bubbles get in the way lol !

        Sometimes, in order to show partners that their little tricks are easy to read, you need to make them an offer that they cannot agree to. None of the guarantors
        Ukraine’s solvency has not yet answered and most likely will not answer Putin’s proposal, and this can only mean one thing - Ukraine has a month and a half
        to pay the debt of Russia.

      Not, rather, as in the song of Vysotsky -... A year ago - and I do not forget insults soon -
      In the mine we quarreled a bit, -
      True, the conversation did not turn out heart-to-heart:
      We were disturbed by a jackhammer.

      To the cry of the soul: Leave her! he began to joke
      To my blow, he cried out: Stop fooling!
      I hesitated a little - I was offended, angry, -
      Chinarik spat out, threw the knife and left.

      My happiness is that he turned out to be tenacious! .. Immediately he decided
      “I decided it was counterproductive,” Obama said.

      A rare case when it is difficult to disagree with Obama.
      We’ll keep silent about the motives of such a retreat. They are understandable to anyone.

      No, it's just that Abamka figured out how the words "COST from COST" differ.

      If not worth it, then it is not worth it.

    Vladyka, however ... is trying to put on a good face when playing badly. It would be possible to immediately introduce a no-fly zone (for others), but Wishlist "could not."

    Well, in Libya, yes, it was productive for them, because ours were not there - Gaddafi was leaked. So I would say: I’m something, boys.

    Make a decision to close the sky of Syria? But as? UN solutions to this no! This is already illegal!
    Shoot down Russian planes? This is a war with Russia!
    The war of Russia with the United States? Or with the whole coalition from 65 countries? Or only with NATO?
    One hell, this conflict can grow into a world with all the charms of the Apocalypse

    The US no-fly zone can set. Only where it is the master and where Russia is located there they have nothing to catch. It’s more expensive.

    In the presence of our aerospace forces, no-fly zones in Syria are unrealistic. Well, at least Putin explained all this to him intelligibly.
    I hope there were no slaps in the back.

    Not excluded. And the opinion of the no-fly zone has changed, and Assad is no longer in the first place, and France and England began to say reasonable things. Right, wait and see.

    Obama igil has already been dispersed in Syria and transported him to Yemen and Turkey and maybe in Qatar. It’s not necessary to bomb power lines there.

    Why is this, very productive, should someone coordinate the bombing. And if the Russian military coordinates, there will be no chaos.
