American General: Russian strikes in Syria "minimally affect" on the IG

113
Russian airstrikes in Syria bring a minimal contribution to the common cause, aimed at the destruction of the "Islamic state", reports RIA News statement by the commander of US operations against IS in Syria and Iraq, Sean MacFarland.


American General: Russian strikes in Syria "minimally affect" on the IG


“Russia is more focused on supporting (Syrian President Bashar) Al-Assad than on fighting the IS. Their actions have minimal impact on the IG, ”the general said.

But the forces of the western coalition, in his words, have succeeded a lot in the fight against IS.

“During the operation we carried out over 10 thousands of air strikes against militant positions. About two thirds of them are in Iraq, and one third in Syria, ”said McFarland.

He called the "symbolic" recent liberation of Iraqi Ramadi. “This was a turning point in the campaign,” the commander said.

“We also see progress in Syria, where we are cooperating with a number of opposition groups,” he said, while acknowledging that “the enemy is still strong and the situation in Syria remains unstable.”

McFarland takes his position from the end of 2015.

    Who would doubt that! Only the valiant American army always hits efficiently and accurately.
    And we shoot from slingshots, fight in footcloths, cabbage soup with bast shoes!

    And the fact that the IG was so non-acidic "calibrated" is - an accident! Pay no attention! fool

        Yes, what can I say, they can only get to the bare desert, to the hospital with the wounded, to wedding and funeral processions. But the opposition generally sits on the cracks and does not protrude. The Americans are accustomed to letting lies in the world, to shield themselves and their puppets, to see the war went not according to their scenario. request yes

      Most of our strikes are carried out in the provinces of Hama, Homs, Latakia, Idlib. There is no IG. Nevertheless, our struggle with militants is tight and much better than the Americans.

      American and British DRESD airstrikes were more effective between 1944 and 1945. In most cases, massive allied airstrikes on German cities were not dictated by the course of hostilities, but pursued completely different goals.

      ..and again English and American stripes ...
      .. "Exactly 73 years ago, on February 21, 1942, the idea of" bombing "Germany from the war was put forward by the commander of the bomber aircraft of the Royal Air Force, Air Marshal Arthur Harris. He proposed abandoning the practice of destroying specific targets and delivering air strikes on city squares. Harris was sure that that the destruction of cities would undermine the spirit of the civilian population.
      In January 1943, US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Churchill met in Casablanca. At the meeting of the Anglo-Saxons, loudly called the "conference", it was decided "to upset and destroy the military, economic and industrial might of Germany and so weaken the morale of its people that it would lose all ability to military resistance." And since at the same time Roosevelt and Churchill once again agreed to postpone the opening of the second front in Europe, they only had to rely on the Red Army and their bombers. "

      In principle, he said correctly. But with one big amendment.
      Before you get to ISIS, you need to clean the rear and buffer zone. These are the basics of military affairs. Attacking ISIS, leaving behind their fellow enclaves with other nicknames is the height of recklessness.
      The less Americans and Turks get in the way, the faster the line will reach ISIS.
      Our people are doing everything right. For the Barmaleev is still to come.

      All the collar on the eversion. He apparently wants to say that the "valiant" American coalition, which has been bombing the desert, excavators and hospitals for a year and a half, is doing disproportionately more in the fight against ISILs than the Russian air group in Latakia ??? fool And are these "figures" in Syria going to criticize anything else? Drive in the neck from the Syrian sky !!! We can then start filtering the bazaar. No wonder our Su-35S were transferred there good

        This is one of the sides of the information war. It is clear that the general is shaking the air from the team of the ruling circles of the United States. But this is all ineffective, because the world sees what is being done in Syria by our VKS and what the coalition led by the United States is doing.

    bring minimal contribution to the common cause

    It depends on how to understand the "common cause". If ISIS helps, then everything is correct. If the fight against ISIS is what the United States is shouting about at every corner, then it is an outright lie. If the Americans did at least 50% of what Russia is doing in eliminating the bandits, then their contribution would be noticeable. In the meantime, one verbiage and falsification of facts.

    Yes, you won the Second World War too, but we just stood aside and fired a couple of times. In Poland, back in the eighties, I heard from the Poles - "while the Pole Jacek Berlin took, the Russian Ivan slept on the stove." Moreover, the Poles were absolutely piously convinced that they won the war, and we only helped them, no arguments and arguments worked, they were simply ignored. So everything is logical and natural in the statements of the American.

    The general here is absolutely right, but the blows of the coalition also have minimal impact on the Islamic state. Ideology is not fought with bombing.

    “During the operation we carried out over 10 thousands of air strikes against militant positions. About two thirds of them are in Iraq, and one third in Syria, ”said McFarland.

    ... and they still haven’t realized that you won’t achieve anything with bombs? Will it come when the number of strokes exceeds 100 thousand?

      Professor, and you will not give a link with a video of a coalition applying airstrikes on the IG in Syria? Well, so that it was specifically seen that ammunition depots, jihad chariots are exploding .. Well, or at least the notorious excavators. At least one video from the territory of Syria. And then we will compare and "level".

          I do not argue that ideology cannot be defeated (we are talking about causing real damage to real terrorist groups). I’m saying that if the coalition bombed Yig, it’s not in Syria, where the task is to defeat Assad, but not terror. They may be bombing in Iraq. But then again, I would like to see at least one detonation. You can also bomb empty buildings. hi

              Someone posted the video of the strikes in Iraq. Impressive, to be honest. A very large selection, high resolution (we are very far from this), very accurate and powerful gaps. But the video is from Iraq, and the objects hit are all as one building in dense buildings. What goals are there is not clear. Neither technology, nor people, nor detonations.

              Your untruth. There are a lot of recorded detonations of mass ammunition accumulation, destruction of manpower and equipment from the provided video reports of our bombardments, and you yourself saw it perfectly.

              The result is obvious. Assad’s army is on the offensive and is gaining new positions. Our bombing deprives the IG of supplies, ammunition, weapons manufacturing workshops, and this helps a lot. But the coalition - yes. They’re not bombing anyone in Syria, because the main goal is to overthrow Assad and then restore order. Only this goes against our interests (and the interests of the Syrian people, however pathetic it sounds), and you again, you know very well.

                Does this Assad tell you so? Over the entire time of the Russian presence, the Asadites hardly recaptured a dozen villages, and the blocking of the Aleppo-Damascus highway is considered almost a victory. And all this with complete dominance in the sky and unlimited supplies of ammunition and ground assistance of all kinds of Hezbals and Ksirs.

But for the Assad, in addition to the Alawites, one has to attract Shiites from outside, Hezbalons and Persians. Yours there, too, do not help the Syrian people, but Assad.

I had in mind more global missile-bombing attacks on columns, warehouses and factories. I won’t say anything bad about how Apache works. I sigh sadly and I hope our Mi-28N will one day be able to.

                  Actually, Assad was pressed specifically before our intervention. The case even smelled of real defeat. And if you call the transition from defensive to offensive action dubious success, then I don’t know how you can reach consensus on this issue. So far to victory, and anything can be - I agree. That there is no enchantment in the offensive either - but this is a completely different scenario than before.

For so many years of fighting ISIS with their entire "anti-terrorist" shobla, they did nothing but destroy the ISIS excavators, seizing more and more Syrian cities and settlements like thugs! It was only when the Russian Aerospace Forces appeared and began to really BUTT the jihadist scum on all fronts, that the Syrian territory began to free itself from this universal infection, and they began to hammer so that the sponsors of the thugs to save their sponsors screamed about the need for peace negotiations, which they did not remember before, expecting the fall of Assad!
