Latvian parliamentarians decided to send troops of the Latvian Armed Forces to Iraq and Mali "to assist in the fight against ISIL"

110
A truly landmark event took place today in the Latvian parliament. Parliamentarians of the Seimas approved the possibility of participation in the operation against ISIS of the Latvian soldiers. The final document states that in addition to the contingent in Mali, the Latvian military in the near future can go to the territory of Iraq "to assist in the fight against terrorists."


Latvian parliamentarians decided to send troops of the Latvian Armed Forces to Iraq and Mali "to assist in the fight against ISIL"


Informational portal Delphi, referring to the country's Minister of Defense Raymond Bergmanis, writes that the Latvian military contingent (although “contingent” - the term is too loud in this case) will be formed shortly and should join the contingent of the Danish army, together with representatives of which the Latvians will "To teach anti-terrorist actions of Iraqi soldiers."

This is surprising information, if only because it is difficult to give an adequate answer to the question of how long it has become for the Latvian soldiers to have more anti-terrorism experience than the soldiers of the Iraqi army, which literally have to engage in bloody battles with groups of various stripes every day, including ISIS. Of great interest would be the answer to the question of how many citizens of Latvia seriously believe that the Latvian troops have enough anti-terrorism experience to train the soldiers of the Iraqi army ...

It should be recalled that several Latvian soldiers are currently in the mission in Mali. The UN mandate expires for them in June 2016.

Representatives of the parliament decided to clarify with the Minister of Defense the question of the size of the “anti-Igilovskiy” contingent of Latvia. From the words of Bergmanis, it turned out that Latvia’s headquarters for information processing will send (attention!) "From one to three of its servicemen." Apparently, it is these “universal soldiers” who will “teach” Malians and Iraqis to combat international terrorism.

        Just kill, I don’t understand this coalition.
        If 60 soldiers were pulled out of 10 countries and made into a peacekeeping regiment to fight ISIS, its effectiveness would not even be zero, but negative.
        Isn’t it easier for military personnel from 1-3 countries with both equipment and military experience to take part in the operation, while the rest would provide only financial support?
        Well, what's the point of these Latvians there? What role will they play?

        - Despite the absurdity of the intention itself (maximum three soldiers!) This will surely give Latvia the opportunity to whine at EU meetings in the future that they protect the world (Europe) not only from fascist Putin's Russia, but also from world terrorism. Under this case, perhaps the EU will give them something. Although, most likely, it will not give anything - the EU today is not the best of times.

Shtatovtsy have “Hercules” capable of delivering soldiers and equipment to the right point, there is a fleet that today has no equal in terms of combat power in the world, in the end, there is carrier-based and strategic aviation. The Latvians have ... hmmm ... they probably have a balloon. Not enough for the invasion forces, right?

    Well, why are you all against training Iraqis to fight terrorists? Do you want the Latvians themselves to fight terror? So you are in vain, they, these "one and a half digger", do not even know how to fight. Americans showed where to click, how to trump, where to run. I think the process will go, the struggle will move, the terrorists will repent.

    - Despite the absurdity of the intention itself (maximum three soldiers!) This will surely give Latvia the opportunity to whine at EU meetings in the future that they protect the world (Europe) not only from fascist Putin's Russia, but also from world terrorism.

    I agree. And they know how to whine.

    Watch how they stir. Apparently, the SGA decided to open a second front in the great national war. As a result, divide Syria in the image of Germany in the 45th. At the same time, the interaction of the coalition forces will work out, you never know, suddenly, Russia will have to fight, an invaluable combat experience.

    And to get to Mali and Iraq on which boats will be, which participated in the parade, are fun?
    And even then only to Senegal, and there on foot to Mali. Just in time for the end to ripen.
    That's bad luck, and to Iraq, through the Baltic, Atlantic, Gibraltar, the Mediterranean Sea and Turkey, and then to Iraq. Again they do not have time.

    From the words of Bergmanis, it turned out that Latvia will send (attention!) “From one to three of its military personnel” to the headquarters of the Netherlands for information processing

    Well, that’s all - DAISH whistle. We are waiting for their arrival at the place and we are turning off our anti-terrorist operation. After the "sprats" we will not have work left there.

    I started reading this serious article, and there was a feeling that somewhere there would be some kind of joke. And he waited: "..Latvia will direct (attention!)" From one to three of its military personnel .. ". And not just direct, but train anti-terror. I just can’t imagine the contribution of these instructors, my brains are not enough. But how he laughed!

    Yes, as almost everywhere - a housekeeping planner, someone also needs to wash the floors, do loading work, but you never know what - HELP, PARTICIPATE, and most importantly raise the flag, so that later there is a reason to 'yap'.
    "Participation" of the Latvian warriors in the Iraqi company, one respected officer, respected in the east of Latvia, called shame. It is not a great honor to raise a flag over a warehouse. By the way, he became a “pensioner” from a correct understanding of official duty. An attempt to send a group suitable for combat work failed - by and large they did not want to invest, equipment, weapons are not bad, payment of insurance there. How many years have passed since the collapse of the Union, no matter how much you were eager for the "bright", God forgive me, but as you were a scoop, you remained.
