Congressman: the IG group strengthened its position in Afghanistan and Libya

22
The successes that were achieved in the fight against IS in Iraq are largely compensated by the fact that terrorists are strengthening their positions in other countries, reports TASS Statement by Mack Thornberry, Head of the US Congressional Armed Services Committee




“Obviously, the IG is expanding its presence in Libya, the administration recognizes this,” the legislator said. Yes, success was achieved in Ramadi (Iraq), but all this is leveled by the fact that ISIS is increasing in Libya, in Afghanistan and other places. ”

According to him, "European countries now have to worry not only because of the militants who can penetrate into the EU from Iraq and Syria, but also because of the Islamists from other states in the region."

Last week, Obama met with members of the National Security Council and instructed to continue to support the counter-terrorism forces of Libya. White House spokesman Ernest said later that Washington was in favor of a diplomatic solution to the Libyan problem.

“Our strategy in Libya is consistent with the actions that we have committed in other places, and provides strong support for the ongoing diplomatic efforts to resolve the political situation,” he said.

It is not only the fight against terrorists, but also the formation of the government of national consent in Libya. However, there are no concrete decisions on this.

    Interestingly, NATO will bomb Libya again?

      In short, another brain stem.

      Libya is preparing as a terrorist base - the horror of Europe. In order not to show off, just in case.
      Terrorists are also people, because they need to live somewhere, so they will live in Libya, since the evil uncle Assad does not want to leave, although he "must". Yes, and still away from the Dark Lord Pu Libya.
      The preparation of positions in Libya is, so to speak, humanitarian aid to "people too" in the spirit of humanity and tolerance on the Western model.

      It will, of course. With the same success as Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan ...

    The backup option in action, the State Department and the Turks pull the igil to where it is in relative safety, and further shake the region, at the same time and replenishing the ranks of the militants with new recruits.

      ... and expanding the ranks of the militants with new recruits ...

      ... well, this is unlikely to take on a direct global character, they have nothing to pay with these fighters, they start to scatter, thanks to the work of our videoconferencing ... and where to get the dough on the new ones? Qatar began to think about the future, there is no need to expect any special favors from fascinatington, so "warriors of Islam" are better trained as "refugees" - and there is no need to fight and what money they pay and you can fuck Europeans with impunity and make fun of ... but let the fools fight and maymunas with propagandized and programmed brains ...

    Something heroic, NATO is in no hurry to send troops into Libya. I suppose it was scary, done things.

      ... why do they need it? They will either send someone there or wait until Russia reaches Libya, and the Yankees will stick out - Russia can be blamed once again for something and not to make them .. why, and even vice versa, lead something again and puff out their cheeks and other parts of the body from self-awareness ...

    The West chooses between al-Qaeda of various types, but the essence does not change - even though it is IS, Jebhat al-Nusra, Jaysh al-Fath, Ahrar al-Sham, the only difference is the length of the dagger with which they decapitate their victims.

    Dear ones, do not rush to believe this statement, they will bomb anyway while blaming Russia, but the goal is different, control over the region, that's why Daesh is being introduced there, then the "good" guys will pass, then the situation in Egypt will swing and further, further

    Not so: the West suggested that the so-called "moderate" opposition initially disinfected the knife over humane decapitation. wink

    DAISH as a locust spread. Where there is something to profit from, they climb there. Such only to completely destroy, not otherwise. No negotiations and a peaceful settlement will help.

    Well? They instilled in "democracy" in their own image wherever you get, now get out of your way. If you do not know how to solve international issues normally, do not take it! Or as always: "We will not do it anyhow, we will do it as we have to."

      ... well, actually they’re not negotiating with terrorists, is this a stateful aphorism, if I’m not mistaken?

    Not even surprising)))
    Strengthening of Daesh occurs exclusively in those regions where the United States and its coalition allies control or are trying to control the situation.
    And at the same time, they declare that they do not see the serious successes of Russia.
