Media: French Air Force has rather modest results in the fight against the Caliphate


“Despite the fact that the air strikes in Syria came to the fore in the political dialogue, the French air offensive in Syria remains rather modest, including due to the lack of targets. The French bombing began on September 27 after several reconnaissance flights. Due to the lack of a clear position of Damascus and the absence of a UN resolution, the first blows took place in an ambiguous situation and were explained by the right to protect the French territory from the terrorist threat, ”the newspaper writes.

The blows inflicted on 9 and 12 in November on the objects of processing, the French authorities have already explained the "fight against the" Islamic state "."

Then the Americans allowed the French to carry out 3 "massive" attacks on "control centers, training, recruitment and warehouses in Raqqa." The raids lasted three days, from November 15 to November 17. Another bombing took place on November 23.

The following attacks on the targets of the Islamists in Syria were 5 and 19 December. “These bombardments were strategic in nature and were aimed at the strategic objects of the IG, and were not intended to destroy manpower on the battlefield,” the publication explained with reference to the French military.

According to the newspaper, French planes are fighting much more actively in Iraq, although little has been reported on this in the press. There aviation “It was used to support ground forces (the Iraqi army and Peshmerga forces), as well as to strike at strategic targets.”

It is reported that “by 23 in December, since the launch of Operation Chammal in September 2014, French aviation flew 2701 over Iraq and Syria, of which 365 had been flown combat missions, during which they attacked 677 targets.”

“These figures allow us to estimate the real participation of the French Air Force in the fight against the IG: on average, six sorties a day. For comparison: during the war against Serbia in 1999, French aviation made an average 52 departure per day, that is, the voltage was nine times higher than today. But that war lasted only 78 days. And against Islamists, it has been stretching for 15 months, ”concludes the publication.

              Yes, they are stupidly afraid of the retaliation of Islamist fanatics in the person of blacks and Arabs of Muslims of radical Islam .. the fighting spirit of the French did not remain (the vast majority). I believe that France (and consider all of Europe) with its liberal, tolerant, color, etc. by laws and vzgladdy itself has done things and has reached a dead end from which it is almost impossible to get out! I am not a racist, not a Nazi, not against Islam, but when this happens, there is only one way out - all foreigners who are foreigners, colorless, unemployed, all the more so - to be forcibly evicted, and if resistance is brutally suppressed! Leave only migrants in the fifth generation (and even with a pretty little check). And if it’s a war, then - IT'S EITHER EQUAL TO FIND EARLY OR LATE, but now there is a chance to win it, as long as not all have been assimilated by white French (Europeans). By their own charters they drive themselves into a trap, when will they change their minds !!?!

      It’s not that the "frogs". The fact is that there are opportunities, not they do. "Rafali" very good planes. Well, let's say on a level. Anyway, I just like the French. They do not allow themselves to eat all the muck from poppy seeds; their national cuisine is very close to Russian. And their girls are good.

        Anyway, I just like the French

        Yes, the whole west is smeared in one world. Both the Germans and the French, and the Italians with the Spaniards, are not at all averse to eliminating Russia. That's what I think when Russian political scientists reproach political independence on the talk shows on Russian channels - with Solovyov or Tolstoy, and on all - flown opponents from these countries, depending on the Americans, etc., they ardently begin to prove that are completely independent in foreign policy ... And you know that I am beginning to believe them. But then it should be recognized that all these countries are anti-Russian and with America only insofar as their goals with respect to Russia coincide! Forum users, swallow the bitter truth - alas, all Western countries are united in their desire to eliminate Russia! THIS IS THE CENTURY DREAM! Here, the Russians had a centuries-old and still unfulfilled dream to go to the warm straits, to control the Bosporus and the Dardanelles, and so every Western European country has a dream to destroy and colonize Russia.
        Hence the conclusions - there should be no talk of any attempts to tear Germany and France from the United States, this is impossible because of Russophobia of Germany and France, and Russophobia is no less than that of the Nglosaksons. Putin is extremely naive if he still hopes for this separation. The French are barely bombing ISIS, the Germans decided to deliver the AWACS of Turkey, the Italians are doing their best to help the Turks in developing their own air defense systems. Yes, in short!
        Hence, the policy should be the following - to Russia impudently, namely impudently, to join as many adjoining states as possible into the single economic zone, where by washing, where by skating, where by color revolution, and where stupidly by military force, it’s shorter to collect 300-400 million people and create its self-sufficient economic zone. This is best done by proposing an attractive idea or ideology. Therefore, it needs to be developed and proposed as soon as possible. And finally, after creating this zone, forget about this Europe. If there is an economic zone, it will be the consumer of all the riches that Russia has. Then it will not be necessary to sell gas and oil to Europe, moreover, even with the help of geopolitical games (and not shy of using force methods where it is safe) to prevent this mushroom Europe from acquiring oil, gas and other raw materials from other countries and continents. I dream when they will begin to roll back to the Stone Age because of all this. But they deserve it. They deserve it precisely because now they reject the hand extended by Russia. They deserve it precisely because now they say in the face of Russia - "we will not create a single zone with you! We hope the Americans will destroy you and then revel with the Americans on your wreckage! After all, once it happened! When the USSR fell apart! Breathing incense producers of Mars candy, not to mention the tiny company, the Picnic manufacturer, have become candy giants! We want to repeat this all! "
        In short, Russia has such a situation - five hundred years ago Europe began to rise, Russia as its outskirts, with the help of Peter the Great's window cut into Europe, also rose. Now Europe is rolling, it's time to specifically cut the window to Asia. The geographical location allows Russia to always be on the rise, while Europe and Asia are subject to ups and downs, in short, subject to cyclical changes.

          Two hundred years ago they washed themselves only under duress.
          The history of Russia written by the Germans is apparently to your liking.
          They lied, they lie and they will lie about us.
          No one doubts that now they lie, but the fact that earlier there was one lie many deny.
          At least not logical.
          Not when Russia was not in the backyards.

          Now another Petro is cutting a window to Europe.
          This, too, does not appeal to all Russian.
          And Europe is an earthly paradise for him.

            Come back to earth.
            - Before the Renaissance in Europe, labor productivity in Asian countries was many times higher than in Europe. With the bourgeois revolution in England and the emergence of the East India Company in Europe, a scientific and technological breakthrough began. And Russia at that time, even warships, no matter how insulting, could not build at the level. A hacked window to Europe, students sent by Peter - all this allowed Peter to modernize Russia. I talked about the outskirts of Russia not in the sense that it was at the outskirts of Europe, but in the fact that Russia was geographically removed from the epicenter of this scientific and technological breakthrough in Europe. Alas, it is. If you are offended about the ships, explain the reason for the flooding of Russian ships at the entrance to the bay of Sevastopol.
            And, by the way, Russia is again not at the epicenter of the breakthrough in Asia. This center is somewhere in China, but this does not mean at all that in the future it is necessary to assert that Russia is on the outskirts of Asia. All that I affirm is that Russia is not in the midst, but in the middle exactly, which gives it advantages, that’s all.

            Warrior wow, this is not about the population, in the West the population is quite loyal to Russia and the Russians. The sharp increase in the number of eminent Europeans who want to get a Russian passport just says that you are right.) But I'm not talking about the ordinary population, I'm talking about European elites, for they and only they dictate the political weather there. And most of all, she is angry that over the past three hundred years in Europe, judging by her eternal Russophobia, she has NOT CHANGE even once. Despite the regular elections and, accordingly, the regular change of “talking heads,” the elite in Europe, and hence the main vector of political aspirations in Europe, is the same and the same - “drang nah ostin!”.
            This is what we see! And what else can explain the fact that the Germans are not blind, they perfectly see that Turkey is indecently cooperating with ISIS, but they decided to help the Turks with AWACS! This is a very serious help! The turkeys' defunct anti-aircraft defense did not give them any chance at all of a possible military confrontation with Russia, and there is no such chance with AWACS, but Russia will be significantly weakened after a clash with Turkey with AWACS. Is this not what the German elite is seeking? And there is Drang nah Osten! can apply.
            As for the unlikely military clash with Turkey - there is no such improbability. I do not believe that Erdogan will deviate from the plan - the creation of Neo-Ottomania. We'll have to reassure him just as the Westerners reassured Saddam and Muammar.

      “Are you so dark?” - asks the married Russian.
      - Yes, actually, there is nothing to boast about. Never a "target" is not struck ... And you?
      - Infinite. What is the reason for your failures?
