Ashton Carter: US coalition to conduct land operation in Syria and Iraq

130
The head of the US military, Ashton Carter, announced that in order to “speed up the process of defeating IS,” a coalition led by the United States decides to conduct a ground operation in Iraq and Syria. TV channel CNBC cites the statement of the head of the Pentagon:


We do a lot. This is necessary so that we win the "Islamic State". And I am sure that we will be able to do this. I want to speed up this process.


Ashton Carter: US coalition to conduct land operation in Syria and Iraq


It is not reported yet how many American and other soldiers of the so-called coalition are planned to be involved in a ground operation announced by Carter. Nor is it reported what the mandate of the coalition forces in Syria will be, because it is well known that neither the Syrian authorities nor the UN Security Council have sanctioned the coalition forces to conduct a ground operation. However, the United States in its repertoire and, of course, the opinion of Damascus or the UN Security Council, Washington is ready to take into account the very last thing, exposing exclusively its own interests to the first place.

It is worth recalling that earlier in Iraq, the Pentagon sent American special forces to 50, saying that their number would increase. On the eve of the press appeared materials telling about the restoration of the American airfield in the north-east of Syria.

If only they clarified first - radical or moderate, otherwise our aviation needs to be warned in advance. It may turn out that it will be too late to play the "radical-moderate" countdown.

      All this reminds us of 1944-1945, while we fought with Hitler on our territory, these allies pretended to help us, while they themselves evaded as best they could from the second front. The Red Army moved the cattle to go to the borders with Europe. Assad’s army, with our help, go on the offensive, immediately there are such Carters. Be afraid of such Danians bringing gifts.

      No. They will introduce the Turks, who are pushing through their Ottoman empire under the guise of “security zones.” Well, the war in Turkey in the southeast will receive an additional impetus in the form of arming the Kurds. Europe will receive additional millions of refugees for population replacement and replacement, new states will appear to counterbalance Iran, at least Kurdistan, well, and they hope to burden us with a headache. with the erection of the cross on St. Sophia.

      No ... I believe that they are in their plans, since they did not succeed in destroying Assad and bringing the puppet government to power, plus - the DAISH members who got out of control and our powerful support in all directions - they decided to carry out the usual seizure of part of the territory of Syria, followed by the declaration of "independence" and the "invitation" of American troops to their territory. It seems to me that the Americans decided to play out the South Korean and Vietnamese scenarios ...

          Yes, Eugene, I think so. This is the best option for them. They chop off the north of Syria, with access to Turkey and the free transit of Iraqi oil through these territories, the Turks will be signed to destroy the rebellious Kurds, the regime will be completely subject to itself, and I don’t want to go for a walk.
          We would need to work more closely with the Syrian Kurds so that they create the maximum inconvenience when implementing this plan. And at the diplomatic level to warn that we will not allow this by any means possible, up to the supply of weapons to the Turkish Kurds, so that Erdogan does not get bored. In such a case, you need to be tough. If they play without rules, then we can do exactly that.

              Don't tell me ... The Kurds are still that "bone in the throat" ... They have long dreamed of creating an independent Kurdistan on the territory where they have lived and live for centuries. After the First World War, the victorious countries (read - the Entente and the United States), cut the territories as they wanted, divided the borders as it was beneficial for them and took control of the newly formed states. There are tens of millions of Kurds, and their national idea is the state of Kurdistan. And it will include the territories of Turkey, Iraq and Syria. Whoever can make them the most profitable offer to make their dreams come true, so they will be.
              The states and Turkey were able to buy a couple of influential Kurdish clans in Iraq, and they are now playing on their side, but as far as I know, the vast majority of Kurds simply hate Turkey, the states and the whole West. I repeat once again - we need to work very closely with the Kurds if we want that in the event of the formation of an independent Kurdistan, it would be a friendly state to us. And if this idea does not work, try to ensure that the Syrian Kurds live in Syria on the basis of broad autonomy. To admit another is tantamount to defeat.

      It seems that this is not the main thing for the Yankees. At this stage, they don’t give a damn about Daesh from the height of the Leaning Tower of Pisa because the whole world has sentenced this rabble to destruction. Now they (the USA) want to claim the right to command the post-war device of the Syrian government for their interests, as was the case in Germany and Japan after the end of the Second World War. This leech nation always comes to share the cake and grabs the largest piece. We must not let them do this with Syria, otherwise all our costs and losses will be in vain. yes

        To command the post-war device of the Syrian government only partially (see below), because in the west (densely populated. part of Syria) the Russian Air Force, enhanced air defense and the Navy - they themselves will not trample. But oil in the east of Syria and northern Iraq, which was a solid source of foreign exchange earnings. And you can arrange economic pressure.
        That is why Nuland needed an urgent meeting in Kaliningrad (where she was rumored to be on the verge of war). And this meeting of Kerry and Lavrov. According to unconfirmed data, the US will have 101 airborne divisions. But where will they land? This must surely be coordinated with the Kremlin - they will still remain without communication, and in the air there is no comme il faut without agreement with the VSK. If right next to the oil (Mosul and Raqqa), then I'm afraid of the former Iraqi officers from ISIS, etc. it will not be very pleasant. And if DAISH is a tame Amer. bandits, then a split may occur in it (between the tame and the officers of Saddam). Such a mess and guerrilla warfare will begin that these paratroopers and their allies will seem like Afghanistan to these paratroopers and their allies. And if they do land in northern Iraq and eastern Syria, then there is only one goal - oil. And of course, by taking control of a part of the territories where you can keep the "oppositionists" on "preservation" and use them if you fail to impose your candidacy for the presidency (or the shadow government). Nor will Iran like this, which can send Hezbollah there. The Turks can look "crookedly" - the landing near the Kurds suggests that there will be contacts with the coalition and assistance with weapons. If you look there, it will be discussed about Kurdistan. Iraqi Sunnis will also not be thrilled (they formed the backbone of Saddam's Baath party - the Arab party of socialist revival) - they live in northern Iraq. Therefore, the risks for the United States are great. From the point of view of their security, it is better from the south of Iraq, where there is support in the form of a regular army. And in the eyes of the Iraqis they will rise (they demand Putin - they have already made his grandfather an Arab from Iraq laughing ).
        The landing of US troops suggests that the situation is getting out of US control. And Obama (who said that there will be no troops) with the Democrats urgently needs a break before the elections, at least some.
        With whom are the US going to go to war? Turks and the EU, Kurds (if from the north ...) and Iraqis. The Arabian monarchs may become "frostbitten" because of Yemen, and the Iranian problem was not resolved by the states. Who, besides the French, will go there? The rest are afraid to react coolly - Washington will force kicks. Poles, Balts, Ukrainians and Georgians can once again curry favor.
        And I wonder what tactics they will choose - in Afghanistan somehow they did not succeed with the spirits and the Taliban. And will it not be necessary to take "meat" in the cities or to clean up from the air at 0 (although whole cities have been dug holes there)? hi

          If right next to the oil (Mosul and Raqqa), then I’m afraid of former Iraqi officers from Daesh, etc. it will not like much. And if DAISH - tame amer. bandits, then a split may occur in it (between the tame and official Saddam). Such porridge and guerrilla warfare will begin that Afghanistan will seem paradise to these paratroopers (the weapons there are convoys, and anti-tank anti-tank guided missiles can work against the hosts).

          "Tame" with a graduate of the Baghdadi prison, which in fact has a training center for the US, ALREADY in Libya. ISIS in Afghanistan takes control of the sweetest provinces in terms of drug cultivation and with an eye on the countries of the ex-USSR republics - it is necessary to develop the drug trade potential, a network of transshipment and distributors is ALREADY ready with a coordinating center from the USA base in Kosovo, relying on the Wahhabis of Bosnia and Herzegovina paid for by the Saudis, for which this state misunderstanding under the leadership of a compositor in the SS troops of Albanian volunteers was created and crushed Yugoslavia with Libya. The first batch of "Refugees", the flow of which was provided by Turkish specialists and the same network, transported the Albanian drug infantry from Kosovo. What else have I forgotten? The ISIS bosses released a fatwa about transplantation - a business that the Albanians had completely worked out.

          And if they really land in northern Iraq and eastern Syria, then there is only one goal - oil.

          So they put the device on oil deep with a whistle, they will raise and lower oil on the New York stock exchange as they want. You can, of course, shove the 101st there, the 82nd, from Turkey, but at least the entire landing corps with "guinea pigs" in the bargain. But why ?? Turk for the eyes will have enough with green berets, and as I indicated today, in both versions they chocolate - the map of the region will be redrawn. Well, if Erdogashka will add it, which I personally doubt, the land, or the Kurds will smash him with Turkey, all one Kurdistan, at least a headache instead of the Turks in the region for Iran in the first place. But Europe, in all cases ass and import substitution of population consumption softened in bliss.So the prize in this Turn of the Great Game is Europe, and for the former USSR, in general, a mortal danger. Yes, such that the Kazakhs tie into the EAEU's clever games with "no politics, only the economy" , will stand sideways. Since “There is nowhere to retreat - Moscow is behind.” Russia will fall asleep in this Game, the fragments of the USSR - the national republics will crush on the way to China from the northwest and will not even notice. what is actually done in Ukraine.

    The American ground operation will nullify all the bombing of Russia in Syria. US soldiers will occupy a piece of Syrian territory (such as Kosovo in Yugoslavia) where they will train "moderate opposition", and in fact militants for the overthrow of Assad and the coming to power of the pro-American government. And this territory is controlled NATO troops, Syria will no longer receive back. For the United States, a ground operation is the only option for overthrowing Assad and humiliating Russia.

    Hmmmm. It looks like the situation will become more interesting. Those. still there will be a section of Syria. Well yes. It’s impossible to win a war in the air. This is at the beginning of the Syrian company, many said. What is needed and the ground troops to transfer to Syria, and not just the marines for protection. And the Syrian army was not sufficiently combat-ready, even with our help, to regain control of the country.

    "The Pentagon has sent 50 American special forces"
    Well, they will send another 150 specialists. And it will be like in Zagortsev's "Don't give vodka to pilots" (I received $ 10 for an advertising campaign, I paid taxes, I sleep well):
    -Tavarisch general in their regiment dr chat.
    -Yes Yes. I myself allowed them. Better listen to the kompolka. He will tell an interesting way ...
    So I think that Putin allowed them to, otherwise you can be punished.

    An interesting movie, but did the Syrian government invite? So it is possible, for example, to carry out an operation in France if Oland suddenly "behaves badly." There, as it turned out, there are terrorists too, and there is no problem to hire "friends of France" with the support of this initiative for money.


    This is not necessary for territories not controlled by the government of the country. There is no formal violation. Well, amers somehow do not care in general for invitations. No one canceled the right of the strong. They rules for the countries of the second and third world. Strong rules are set by yourself. Well, if there are no contradictions with the same of course smile

    Want to repeat Operation Desert Storm? Well then it worked, but now? Look how our VKS picks them, and the Syrian troops from the ground with great difficulty liberate cities and villages. Will these come right off the bat and defeat all ISIS? It is hard to believe.

      The United States does not go to war with ISIS, but creates a bridgehead where Americans will make ISIS moderate opposition, and then this territory can be donated to Turkey or other Syrian neighbors that cover the bandits.

    Yes? Yeah, and necessarily tactical nuclear weapons. Well, for sure!

    And here is the rule of law? There are opportunities and consequences. Amers have more opportunities for a lock there than ours. You can think of the consequences yourself. No one will destroy anything. There will be another Garant’s speech about a stab in the back or something. But there will be no gestures. However, like the Americans will not touch our aircraft and bases. They will not directly fight the Syrian army. They will simply occupy territories not controlled by the Syrians. The oil fields will be crushed under them; for the most part, they have remained largely out of Syrian control.

    Let's remember the story, so as not to shy away from 3MB. Oh wait, Americans, oh wait, we.
    1MB, the Americans organized and sat out in the bushes.
    WW2, the Americans organized and sat out in the bushes (in the Pacific Ocean).
    Korean - Koreans also disentangled
    Cuba - the Cubans also disentangled
    Vietnam - the Vietnamese also disentangled
    Afghan - but who will consider them Afghans.
    In Syria, it is already simpler, there is an institute of mercenaries and Turkey, there is this meat ... And to Erdogan "you will lie in three boxes and do with him what you like." This is the blue sky. And there is still nothing to send from our table to theirs. China has announced a reduction in the army by 300 and a readiness to fight on foreign territory from 000, although they may stir up trouble.
    If the Chinese get into something they won’t leave.
    A wedge is everywhere.

    Some scam was plotted by the shit in the Pentagon and in defiance of the black baboon, who promised that he would not send troops in Iraq, Syria. Apparently they completely did not give a damn about the little black one. Amerikos will not fight with ISIS, he does not know how to do it, but he is much more likely with other hands. Well, all right, we’ll see what these world aggressors do.

    The American coalition will conduct a ground operation in Syria and Iraq

    Afraid not to be in time? It is necessary to stake out the territory at the end of World War II? Freeloaders. It is interesting when the Russian Federation will enter paradise on an American hump, and not vice versa? Or a goof country, is it fate?

    US soldiers will occupy a piece of Syrian territory (such as Kosovo in Yugoslavia) where they will prepare a "moderate opposition", but in fact militants for the overthrow of Assad and the coming to power of a pro-American government. If everything goes according to plan, then a piece of land will stick to some neighboring country that supports militants, and the new pro-American leadership of Syria will ask the Russian military to get out. The United States will trumpet the whole world how they defeated ISIS. Perhaps the states want this development of events wink

      To our regret, mattresses can now do anything ... more so Obama urgently needs a victorious war, especially now, when the needles are on the verge and losses will be minimal, if at all (most Igilovites are a mattress tribe, their own ... will say: That's it ... we defeated you, leave until not for long ...)

      Therefore, our military and Assad now have one way out: to have time to clear out the territory of Syria to the maximum, ideally completely, so that it makes no sense for mattress mattresses to land on the ground ...

    “We do a lot. This is necessary for us to defeat the Islamic State. And I am sure that we will be able to do this. I want to speed up this process. ”

    There is an idea: all statements of the SGA should be read with a change of sign, from plus to minus, and accordingly from minus to plus. The perception error will be less by an order of magnitude. For an example of this article:

    “We are not doing anything. This is necessary in order to never defeat the Islamic State. I am not sure that we will be able to do this. I do not want to speed up this process.

    True and logical, right? It is not so difficult to decode the information of the leaders of a criminal country, whose policy is entirely based on lies!

    the American administration is finalizing its term and since it was generally unsuccessful they need such a fat point, the ending is needed. This is the operation in which they will create the kind of fight against the igil. Even kill a couple of hundred and possibly free the capital from ISIS, and in fact most of it they will be allowed to leave.
