Konashenkov: Washington's statements on Syria are increasingly reminiscent of a play on words from the “theater of the absurd”

32
Everything that the representatives of the USA have recently been saying about the situation in Syria is based on double standards, RIA News statement by the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation Igor Konashenkov.




“In general, the statements of representatives of the Pentagon and the State Department lately resemble the“ theater of the absurd ”, based on double standards and a play on words”,
said Konashenkov at the briefing.

“That they see, they do not see, they divide the opposition into moderate and unlimited. Even terrorists have bad and very bad ones, ”he noted.

The general recalled that Moscow had repeatedly warned against flirting with terrorist groups.

“Moreover, it was stressed that such a short-sighted position may respond with a bloody echo on the streets of your and our cities. We are convinced that terrorism does not have any comparative degrees or nationalities. Terrorism is an absolute evil that must be dealt with in all its manifestations, ”he stressed.

"This is the same axiom, as well as the evidence presented at the 2 December briefing - from where and where does the thief oil flow from areas controlled by international terrorism, who patronizes it and where does ISIL (DAISH) have money to carry out bloody terrorist attacks," the Defense Ministry spokesman added .

Konashenkov expressed bewilderment at the statement by the head of the Pentagon Carter that the US Air Force recently hit only the profitable oil industry enterprises DAISH and do not seek to destroy the entire oil infrastructure.

“How to understand the statement of the head of the Pentagon, Mr. Carter, that aviation In the last month, the USA destroys only profitable terrorist oil companies It turns out that for a year and a half the Americans destroyed only unprofitable objects of the militants, ”the general said.

“Now it’s clear where the bandits have such money for buying weapons, recruiting new supporters, carrying out bloody terrorist acts and why the territory controlled by ISIL has increased hundreds of times during this time,” he stressed.

      I agree. There is an undeclared war, including in the information field. The Americans have never disdained double standards or outright lies. In general, this war uses the entire arsenal with which to influence public opinion.

        The US has always used elements of the Psychological Warfare, in this they are certainly strong. We need to catch up on this, and make more active use of countries from Latin America and the Caribbean, as long as there are good bridgeheads ...)))

      The USA created ISIS, protect it and protect it in every way. See what kind of oil painting you get. Any large organization, and even more so the state, has a power structure. For example, alkaida. At the top are Bin Laden, deputies, branches, cells, etc. A structure emerges, so to speak, a vertical or a pyramid of power. And so, in any organization, party, especially the state. What is here? Units, militants, sponsors are fighting. And where is the top - HEAD? In Iraq and Syria are not visible. The answer is clear in Washington!

      Turkey is the only country that has not joined the sanctions (from all of NATO). The Americans estimated and secretly agreed that they would bring down the plane of Russia. In this situation, the United States wins and then there is an influx of refugees into the EU. These are the links of one chain - agree to the transatlantic community (the EU, and to a greater extent Germany has resisted this). They hit on the fact that the EU and Russia do not come closer. The problems of both the EU and Russia are not up to rapprochement (lifting sanctions). In any variant, the USA wins out, remaining white and fluffy.

    “In general, the statements of representatives of the Pentagon and the State Department lately resemble the“ theater of the absurd ”, based on double standards and a play on words”,

    So their statements never when objectivity did not differ. Just now, against the background of briefings by the RF Ministry of Defense, it just cuts the ear. But, continuing to frankly lie to the world community, the United States further push themselves into a dead end. Already it seems that after the statements of the State Department and the United States Defense, even their allies in Europe become embarrassed and not comfortable.

    reminds me of the theater of the absurdity the pursuit of Putin’s policy — in Syria, there are Turks — in the air in Syria the British are flying bombs — they said — they screamed that the illegally crossed aircraft — the troops introduced, would blow and they shouted again, threatened and stuffed their heads in one place — I don’t hear cries of protest against the flights and troops of the Turkish Syria and after all off. none of them received invitations, so Putin’s words are just an eructation of what he cannot digest, but he doesn’t do something for the spirit, he won’t bomb the Turks, he won’t shoot the British, they set him off at 400 and why?

    The new message that the salary in the Daesh for ordinary soldiers was reduced from 400 to 300 dollars is the result of the work of our VKS. When they reduce to 100 - even those guest workers who are recruited in the Ferghana Valley will decide that it is better at home - and there will be no one to fight sharply. They probably still have reserves, but the balance is obviously upset.
    ИМХО, меня не покидает мысль, что весь этот ДАИШ - очень похож на какой то жуткий бизнес-проект, который просчитывали не мусульманчкие богословы. Такую материальную базу "подогнать" под него - раньше даже у Аль-Каиды такого не получалось. И участвуют в этом проекте не только СА и Катар, и не только турки. А ещё и такие монстры международного бизнеса, типа Сороса. Не обязательно он, но уж больно "не идеологическим" выглядит система снабжения ДАИШ, как то очень по-Европейски прописана логистика, финансовые потоки, система освещения деятельности ДАИШ в СМИ, вербовка сторонников... Не верю я в доморощенных гениев из пустынь Ближнего Востока.

    Personally, I do not see double standards.
    There is an aggressive US policy that seeks to subjugate the world, for which it is used.
    1) American military bases scattered around the world and posing a threat to the sovereignty of countries.
    2) the dollar, as a means of enriching the United States and destroying national economies, the number of dollars in circulation exceeds the US GDP, the US public debt and no one knows how much.
    3) Media declared independent, but engaged in propaganda, misinformation and destabilization.
    4) Terrorism, groups created and directed by the United States are implicit weapons to subjugate the world.
    Terrorism spreading all over the world is a type of American weapon used for intimidation, panic, and serving as a pretext for the destruction of states.
    They created Al Qaeda, followed by the destruction of a number of countries.
    Even the name ISIS speaks of the intention to create a permanent hotbed of threat created by the United States, hence the appearance of fighting ISIS while eliminating the possibility of its destruction and actively opposing forces that can destroy the hotbed of terrorism.

    Ну я понимаю, информационная война(США считают что в этом они мастаки), "промывка" мозгов и прочее. "Промыли" они эти мозги своему народу(американцам), с этим тоже всё понятно. Хотя чего им там промывать то, если они(народ американский) озабочены по самое не могу и без "промывки"? Уровень жизни падает, пропасть богач - бедняк всё ощутимей, кредитная кабала, дорогущая медицина и с этим большое количество больных людей. Банковский беспередел(отбирают жилье, требование погашения всех кредитов без объяснения почему так), проблема с работой. Для справки: Люди потерявшие работу и жилье в первый кризис так и продолжают жить во временных лагерях построенных ими же, но это табу, это нигде не показывают. После урагана "Катрина" пострадавшие городки преданы забвению, они дичают, там никто ничего не делает. Хотя деньги исправно осваивают. Полицейский произвол. Ой, отвлекся немного. пардон.
    Ту "лапшу"(они считают что это инфо.война) которую они вешают, не уж то они считают, что все, абсолютно все в это верят в остальном мире? Если раньше хоть какая то интрига и тонкость была, то теперь настолько топорно. Выходит они мало того, что в принципе официально считают своих людей стадом, так еще и весь мир? А ведь это не так, ведь и у них есть адекватные люди и их много. Тот же Мэтт Ли к примеру.
