Carter again called on the Russian Federation and Iran to go over to the side of the Western coalition, ceasing support for Assad

62
The head of the Pentagon Ashton Carter again stated that the actions of Russia and Iran are not consistent with the plans of the Western coalition, and called on these countries to stop supporting the Syrian president, reports RIA News.




“These are opportunities for those countries that are not on the other side of this struggle DAISH (IG) - Russia and Iran. They can change by stopping the support of Bashar Assad, the main cause of radicalism and terrorism in Syria, ”said Carter at a military base in Kentucky.

He also noted that the American "special forces have already established contact with new forces at the scene of events (in Syria), who share our goals, have established new lines of communication with local motivated and capable fighters."

According to Carter, the special forces "find new targets for air strikes" and "help to concentrate the efforts of local capable forces on key vulnerable areas of the DAISH group."

The Washington Times, in turn, said that "the most elite special forces (around 40 fighters) are operating in Syria", whose main goal is "to interrupt the flow of ammunition and fighters to Rakka, which the terrorists declared their capital."

    How to live on?

    “Syria has the most elite special forces (about 40 fighters),” the main purpose of which is “to interrupt the flow of ammunition and fighters to Raqqa declared by the terrorists as their capital.”

    are there any results?

      Well, they didn’t lie here. Our cause is peace in Syria, and the cause of the West is a war without end, as in Libya. We are out of the way with these democrats.

      And there were as many as 50 special forces, where another 10? Carter is lying again. Well, yes, yes, 40 "elite" special forces will defeat ISIS and establish peace in Syria. At least they themselves believe in this exceptional nonsense.

    Of course, they do not agree, because they are aimed at destroying ISIS, unlike American plans.
    stopping support for Bashar al-Assad - the main cause of radicalism and terrorism in Syria

    It seems that American generals are grown in a specialized incubator. What is not a statement is frank lies and falsification. We ourselves were not tired of constantly trying to bullshit outright nonsense.

      They just tell almost the truth !!! “Our task is to overthrow Assad and break Syria. But ISIS doesn’t bother us.” For all this time, the Americans so many weapons “mistakenly” threw off the bandits that they hardly believe in their war on terrorism. And if they bomb anyone in Syria - only hospitals and jerboas in the desert ... repeat

          - here the accusations are being poured into your address by the "comrades" from Israel, although it is not clear what, but they are being poured laughing Most likely, you are accusing SyShyA of creating ISIS. But I think that you are right ... In any case, the United States is precisely guilty of creating an environment that maximizes the appearance of that ISIS. It was the United States that created the conditions of "homeostasis" for Daesh.
          Today, the custodians have blamed the Russians for bombing more "moderate" than Daesh. And another statement from the Turks in the person of Davutoglu about the same. And the small defeat of the Syrian armed forces today near Palmyra from DAISH is just another confirmation of this - the Russian air forces practically do not bomb in Deir Ezzor and in Cancer.
          Damn, Putin can directly say that for him that Daesh, that the so-called "moderate rebels" - all one thing, bandits who stupidly need to be eliminated? And that means they will be eliminated. ALL! But in order of priority - at first those who are closer and more dangerous, that is, those very "moderate" who are by no means better than representatives of Daesh, or even more fierce and frostbitten (read about the deeds of the same Allush), and yes, then turn comes to Daesh. Putin needs to be recognized and right in the face of all these Carters and others to report that the primary goal of Russia in Syria is to stabilize the legitimate regime in Syria and only then destroy the Daesh.
          “Py.Sy. Actually, Daesh does not resemble terrorists, but the Inquisition in Europe. Terrorists are precisely those whom the West calls“ moderate rebels fighting Assad. ”These are terrorists in their purest form. But Daesh is just inquisitorial the state. That's how the Arabs were late for 500 years compared to Europe. Perhaps the Arabs need to survive this period, as Europe was forced to survive. Perhaps it is impossible to skip this development period, just as a doll can not jump over the imago period before become a beautiful butterfly. Then the Arab Renaissance, bourgeois revolutions and the scientific and technological revolution. So the Russians act correctly - first we wet the terrorists, and then we take a closer look at Daesh - maybe we don’t need to wet it ...

            here, to your address from the "comrade" from Israel, the accusations are being poured, however, it is not clear what, but they are being poured

            The main thing for these citizens from one country is to bring discord and "reeling" into the minds of our people, because some of them are simply paid trolls "sharpened" in order to carry propaganda and lies.
            Israel spends half a billion shekels on propaganda, but little use
            According to a fresh report by the Knesset Information Center, the State of Israel has allocated asbara, i.e. propaganda of government policies abroad, about 500 million shekels, but this money is dispersed between many different departments and spent very inefficiently.
            From the report drawn up by the Knesset Information Department on the order of the chairman of the Legislative Commission on Legislation Nisan Slomyansky, it follows that there are more than five separate structures responsible for the “asbara” in Israel: the propaganda department of the Office of the Head of Government, the Foreign Ministry’s Press Relations and “People’s Diplomacy” departments, the press -The IDF service, the Ministry of Strategic Planning, the marketing and advertising department in the Ministry of Tourism and a number of other structures.
            http://news.israelinfo.co.il/politics/59795

            And the fact that ISIS was created specifically by the United States (perhaps it was created by Al-Qaeda, in turn, created by the USA) and there are no big doubts that in the future the USA and also Israel, Turkey, Turkey took it for “maintenance” and in principle manage her there is no doubt.

            As always, I agree with you, dear Aksakal! I’m sure that the goals of Russia and Iran are not in the Western “fight against Isis” - which is a real show and circus - in supporting and preserving Syria and Assad

            But does this need to be recognized? Maybe on the contrary - "not recognized"?

              - With all due respect to your opinion - why hide that we support Assad? What is Assad supposedly a butcher? Is Erdogan better now? Yes, he acts in Diyarbakir harder. Right now, this minute. I am generally silent about Saudi Arabia - even the Westerners themselves were outraged by the execution of 47 people, including and Nimra, for absolutely peaceful and legitimate demands - for the right to believe in his Shiite faith. No, it’s precisely what Amers needs to be faced with, giving the face an extremely impudent expression, and say this: “Yes, I support Assad, and only because you were impatient to execute him! Here I support - and what will you do to me?” And that the whole world would hear it. But the USA will not do anything. All that they could do was done. Sanctions and other. Tougher sanctions are a significant damage not only to Russia, but to the USA, Assad is not worth it. So - give up. And now it looks like this - quietly supporting, publicly making excuses, as if we were committing an ugly act.

    "whose main goal is to" interrupt the flow of ammunition and fighters to Raqqa, declared by the terrorists as their capital. "

    And how do 40 American Rambos do this? Will they dig up the entire desert around Raki or dig around the perimeter and will shoot back from everyone to the last bullet in Hollywood action films, and then they will destroy enemy tanks with their heads?
    I personally smiled at such a statement. It’s a pity there are no psaki next to Carter - the perfect couple would have come out.

    But it would be nice to find and thank this most vaunted American special forces in Syria as an adult ... So they were afraid to send a new special forces instead of the first.

    So we have grenades of the wrong system, you say? Well, well ... And you, an American, are used to what you do everywhere and do everything blowjob? Yes, only Russia is not in this queue. Somehow the debris came to you, we live with our own mind, we do not envy you. So without us, myself, myself, myself.

    My question is: "And to whom did Carter speak, at a military base in Kentucky with an appeal to Russia?"

    The head of the Pentagon, Ashton Carter, again said that the actions of Russia and Iran are not consistent with the plans of the Western coalition, and called on these countries to stop supporting the Syrian president, reports RIA Novosti.

    Russia's plans-to cut down to the root of the terrorists, and yours?
    and get rid of Assad already - it's none of your business ...

    (Pentagon chief Ashton Carter reiterated that the actions of Russia and Iran are not consistent with the plans of the Western coalition.)

    So this coalition needs to change plans and synchronize them with our actions, then things go. And if such blah blah cease, then there will come a complete understanding. bully

    Even they are as stubborn as the Japanese.
    Only those about the Kuril Islands, and these about Assad.
    And also Ukrainians with Crimea and Europeans with sanctions and Minsk.

    It’s time for the Western coalition to understand that ISIS is not a joke, but so far only our ministry of defense has understood this. This infection must be ended as soon as possible so that it does not reach our country. I do not want any more terrorist attacks, so I myself would go with the terrorists to fight. Maybe someone knows, we have items for recruiting volunteers, and if so, where are they?
