Financial Times journalists conducted their own investigation to find out the mechanism for the supply of weapons to the DAISH group, for which they met with several suppliers weapons on condition of anonymity, conveys RIA News.


Financial Times: DAISh terrorists buy ammunition constantly, spending millions of dollars a month on them
Daisy ammunition found by Iraqi police near the city of Tikrit

“The main product that Daishe members buy is ammunition. After Xnumx was captured in the summer of Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, military equipment worth hundreds of millions of dollars fell into the hands of militants. With each victory won, the Islamic State replenishes the stock of weapons, but they are ready to buy bullets daily in large quantities, ”says the publication of the word arms dealers.

“They buy like crazy. They buy every day: in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening, ”said one of them.

According to his estimate, "the fighting in the area of ​​the (Syrian) city of Dair Al-Zor spent monthly ammunition worth at least 1 million dollars." The same, in the opinion of suppliers, took place "in one week of the onset of terrorists in the area of ​​the nearby airport in December."

For the supply of weapons to DAISH, a complex logistic scheme has been developed, “which is headed by the highest military command of the group, by analogy with the oil trade, which confirms the critical importance of this direction,” the newspaper notes.

According to a military source in Iraq, "terrorists are sent ammunition within 24 hours after the request."

“Weapons dealers are provided with special supplier certificates after approval of their candidacies by two representatives of the group. Traders receive complete freedom of movement in exchange for the fact that goods will be delivered only DAISH, ”writes FT.

As one of the interlocutors said, “it doesn’t matter to the terrorists from whom the ammunition was purchased — from Iraq, the Syrian regime, the rebels or the Israelis.” According to him, “as a result of a tripartite confrontation in Syria, a large number of weapons hit the black market.” Often, militants use tank trucks to deliver projectiles that return empty from Turkey.

“As the coalition's actions force terrorists to move farther from the Turkish border, opportunities for smuggling are reduced, and prices for the supply of ammunition grow, the IG increases the number of trade licenses, forcing suppliers to fight among themselves and lower prices,” the source said.

At the same time, he noted that if one of the suppliers decides to quit the game and leave Syria, “many other people are ready to take his place, since the opportunities for earning money in the country are very limited”.

              "According to a military source in Iraq," the terrorists are sent ammunition within XNUMX hours after the request. "

              Judging by the speed of processing and dispatch, the supply base is very close.

        In Turkey, they come as consumer goods and from the same Iraq as well, with such a dough the controllers will blindfold. Everything is clear with the Turkish border (except for the striped ones who "have not personally seen Erdogan there").
        In Syria, sections of roads need to be controlled, and terrorists control them. What if trucks are carrying flour or tangerines for residents.
        Such a maza is going to equip the checkpoint near the border - so far only the top command knows how it will look.

        This is another American fairy tale that everybody is stuffed with like drugs in Afghanistan. For the production of drugs, thousands of tons of chemicals are consumed which are not clear where they come from and the Americans do not see their transport, chemical laboratories and warehouses.

            Moscow does not rank Hezbollah, Hamas and the Kurdish Party of Democratic Unity as terrorist organizations, said Russian President’s Special Representative for the Middle East and North Africa, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov.
            "Some say that Hezbollah is a terrorist organization. We maintain contacts and relations with them, because we do not consider them a terrorist organization. They have never committed any terrorist attacks on Russian territory. Hezbollah has been elected by the people to the Lebanese parliament, there are members governments and ministers from Hezbollah in Lebanon. This is a legitimate social and political force, "Bogdanov said.

    It is clear that the scheme has been agreed with the American curators of the "DAISH project".
    Otherwise, how was it possible to leave hundreds of millions of dollars of weapons and ammunition in Mosul? How can years not notice the endless flow of oil from the territory of Syria and Iraq to Turkey? All that is happening in Syria and Iraq is done only because the West, primarily the states, needs regimes that will tacitly agree with the unscrupulous looting of the natural resources of these countries.

        AMERICANS CONSIDERED TO EXCLUDE THE BALTIC FROM NATO

        In one of the most famous and influential business media of the planet - the American financial and economic magazine Forbes - at the beginning of the month a “program” analytical article “Why does America belong to NATO?” Was published, questioning the expediency of the existence of the North Atlantic Alliance, which in no way guarantees the security of the United States , but only puts this security at risk.

        The main idea of ​​the article is to accept new members, which are often weak, useless and unable to self-defense countries, the Alliance is forcing the Americans to take custody of these new pathetic allies. This causes Washington only a headache, because it forces him to be drawn into all sorts of regional conflicts on the side of countries that in no way ensure the security of the United States. The countries that America doesn't really need.

        The expansion of NATO has long been turned into an end in itself - in practice, this expansion does not make any sense to the Americans, does not meet the national interests of the United States, and in the future creates problems for the Pentagon and the Department of State. “Add Montenegro is the same as getting another meaningless friend on Facebook,” Doug Bendou, Forbes staff member, begins his article..


        I almost burst into tears

        The business publication criticizes the replenishment policy of NATO with caustic sarcasm criticizing the principle of "expansion for the sake of expansion", as a result of which America is obliged, for example, to bear allied obligations to Turkey - the "enemy friend" of the United States, where Islamist Erdogan is in power, “The decaying West” and “American imperialism”, which is furiously scourging in his speeches, but at the same time immediately running for help to the NATO allies after the conflict provoked by him with Russia.
        Оhowever, a much brighter example of the worthless and miserable allies that America has shouldered and now has to defend them, although neither she nor Europe needs them, these are the Baltic countries, which Forbes called “helpless nations” with merciless bluntness.



        and then from the foot

        So the Baltic is to blame for the conflict between Russia and the Baltic states, writes a leading American business publication, and, appealing to the most sacred, to the “life of American citizens”, asks: why should America endanger itself with a nuclear war with Russia over the verbal incontinence of Dali Grybauskaite and Edgar Rinkevich?

        and a tail on the tailbone

        Namely, this is exactly what the Baltic allies ultimately demand from her: a week does not pass so that another appeal to increase the US presence in the region, including the military presence, does not sound from Vilnius. For the Baltic countries, there can be no question that they fought for themselves: no, we are small, the allies should be responsible for our words about the “new Mordor”. Allies should generally: they must increase NATO's presence in the region, send their military contingents to the Baltic countries, deploy NATO ground bases in them, for the sake of which they will go into direct conflict with Russia.
        generally totally here

    A sophisticated logistic scheme has been developed for delivering weapons to the Daesh. I can tell you the simplest one. The Pentagon is given money by the US government, it buys weapons and then loads them onto ships, the ships go to Iraq or other countries of the Persian Gulf and unload there, then this stuff is loaded onto a Hercules-type plane, the plane enters Syria and drops the cargo. Which of the US authorities has a profit from this, let the journalists figure it out for themselves.

    Are you friends with your head? There will be ammunition from all over the world. Did you ask the question where did the arsenals of Kadaffi; Saddam Hussein go? And in addition, as Cherny notes: "The revenues of the companies involved in the production of weapons in the United States have grown significantly ... apparently not accidentally. "Although it is said that money does not smell, but in this case money smells of blood. And hundreds of large companies are engaged in the production of ammunition and weapons in the world.

    Well, they say, after all, that the black arms market is no less than the legal one, and even more. There would be a conflict, but there would be a weapon. So, what’s right, you need to deprive them of a profitable business so that there would be no money for weapons and ammunition, and the flows themselves will be blocked, no one will sell at a loss.

    Ammunition is bought everywhere, even in Belarus, and Saudi Arabia buys old ammunition naturally of our calibers and where should it be if they don’t have our weapons. In general, our former friends from the Warsaw Pact still had production capacities, so there is something to buy. This is a war, and there the echelons need ammunition, and judging by the way they shoot at whom God will send indiscriminate barrage fire, the echelons double and triple.

    Judging by the footage that comes from Syria, the "brothers" are firing from all the trunks in the hope that Allah himself will direct the bullets at the infidels. maybe they only shoot at the camera from the hip from the PC, but it seems that this is the norm. When the training of a soldier takes a month or two, then he will support himself and other "brothers" by shooting and the enemy's side. In the SA, after the arrival of a young replenishment, the consumption of ammunition also increased. Perhaps this is what determines such an expense. And the eastern variant is also possible, when the money is simply plundered. Well, in Afghanistan there was an episode when 2stinger "was stupidly bought from one" brother "who was worried only that the other" brothers "would find out and make him a kirdyk. And our hohlobrothers - after all, they were not bad at arming the DPR. and nobody canceled baksheesh.
