The Italian Air Force transferred a fighter 4 to Sicily

33
Yesterday, the Italian military department transferred four AMX fighters and one Predator UAV to a military base in Birgi near Trapani (Sicily), reports RIA News message agency Ansa.




“The decision to transfer military aircraft was made in the light of recent events in the North African countries and due to the deteriorating security situation,” Ansa writes, citing a statement by the General Staff.

It is reported that "AMX fighters will be used to monitor the situation in the region - on land and at sea, to engage in intelligence activities and will not be involved in the bombing."

The agency notes that "security in the Mediterranean raises serious concerns of the Italian government, in particular, official Rome closely follows developments in the situation in Libya and Syria."

      - They will not participate in military operations. And rightly so. Disgraced again. But if before the British had driven them all over the Mediterranean Sea, it was not so offensive as if their beautiful AMXs slaughtered the illiterate Arabs with slingshots.

        I understand that. Predator will conduct reconnaissance where refugees sail in rubber boats. Aircraft will sink. We don’t know anything, the sea will write everything off. Well, they didn’t swim, it’s not my fault.

            The way it is. The EU says one thing, of course everyone agrees. But each country quietly has its borders. For themselves, no one wants to be tolerant.

            Given that this is not a fighter, but an attack aircraft.

        What cake ???
        Luley can be grabbed off easily.
        But no one gives out the pies there.
        Bosko terrorists cut off one-two-three.
        And for the rolls and pies to Nuland.
        But this is on the other side. She prefers to keep her body in comfort.

        - I support. Anyway, the transfer of a pair of dull aircraft by Italy is not so epochal, as Latvia sending its three heroes!

        closely monitoring the development of the situation in Libya and Syria. "

        Well, they can’t worry about Syria (although they put us hard sticks into the wheels) If the Russians got into a fight, they will stand until the end, even if they are completely surrounded and have only sapper blades ... Here, deal with Libya together with the French and yours the owners! And we don’t need help .... Otherwise, you can inadvertently get it!

    official Rome is closely following the development of the situation in Libya and Syria. "
    And why is it that Rome is watching? There, the NATO allies have been so messed up that do not follow, and you can’t fix the situation.

    It is hard to believe that the ini will not bomb. and when they bomb and shoot, they will find some reason to say that it’s not my fault, they themselves came. Europe however.

    behind the development of the situation in Libya and Syria


    A drone will monitor irregular migrants, and airplanes will monitor them. "legalize". laughing You can’t follow the ships - migrants can shout "I am seeking asylum in the EU"and at once legitimize. But from the plane - yelling is not heard.

    four AMX fighters and one UAV ... to monitor the situation in the region - on land and at sea, to engage in intelligence activities

    Well, now for Syria and Libya, you can not worry, since the Italians will monitor the situation. It is necessary to somehow note, especially since this does not oblige anyone to do so - airplanes on its territory.

    I look at the "scale" of the military contingents of Germany, France, Italy, taking part in the fight against ISIS and think about how they will protect Ukraine and Turkey from Russian aggression, how they will liberate Crimea and Donbass, who will sit in tanks supplied by the USA as part of NATO plans? The impression is that there are a lot of American bases, a lot of technology, but essentially there is no one to fight.

    As Benito said there, “My paper Italians!”, When they crashed into Abyssinia! Better stay at home, crack pasta with pizza and take care of your beautiful seigniori from the hot “refugees”! And then Germany harnessed its planes to the anti-ISIS coalition , and away we go New Year's Nagibalovo German Frau in the cities and towns of the next Reich!
