Military Review

For the idea of ​​a ground operation in Syria are the monarchies of the Persian Gulf and Turkey

Following Saudi Arabia, the possible involvement of their troops in a land operation in Syria was announced in the UAE. Such an operation is possible as part of coalition forces led by the United States. Earlier it was reported that Saudi Arabia could send several thousand of its military to Syria to fight the "Islamic state" in coordination with Turkey. Americans are very happy with such statements: according to the head of the Pentagon, Saudi Arabia’s readiness for a ground operation is “very favorable” news.




7 February The foreign minister of the United Arab Emirates, Anwar Gargash, announced that the kingdom had announced its readiness to send troops to Syria to participate in a ground operation against the Islamic State. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Reuters.

Gargash called the condition for the participation of the UAE in the campaign: its conduct under the auspices of the United States.

He also explained the reason for the alleged participation of the state in the land operation: "We are disappointed with the slow pace of opposition Daesh."

Earlier, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain declared their intention to send their troops to the Syrian Arab Republic, Lenta reminds.

The Syrian authorities have given a verbal response to potential aggressors.

“I’m sorry to say this, but they (the foreign military. - Note“ Ribbons ”) will return home in wooden coffins,” said SAR Foreign Minister Walid Moallem on 6 in February.

Earlier it became aware of some of the details of possible participation in the campaign of Saudi Arabia.

As reported TASS from February 5, Riyadh may send several thousand soldiers to Syria to fight the "IG". This was written by the British newspaper «The Guardian».

"Saudi sources said" The Guardian "that thousands of fighters of special units may be deployed (in Syria), possibly in coordination with Turkey," said the British edition.

“Both countries are in favor of withdrawing (from the political arena) Syrian President Bashar Assad and express serious doubts about the prospects for a political settlement of the crisis without additional military pressure on Damascus, the TASS newspaper quotes. “A few weeks ago, Saudi Arabia and Turkey created a military coordination committee.”

On Thursday last week, General Ahmed Asiri, a spokesman for the Arab coalition to assist the government of Yemen, stated that Riyadh is “ready for a ground operation as part of an international coalition in Syria led by the United States.”

In Washington, this statement was met with visible pleasure.

Saudi Arabia’s willingness to participate in the operation is “very favorable” news, said Pentagon chief Ashton Carter.

Carter noted that the activation of the allies in the region will allow Washington to more vigorously fight against militants "IG", the newspaper notes "Sight".

The head of the Pentagon also announced that he would discuss the proposal of Saudi Arabia with representatives of the kingdom in Brussels.

However, further Mr. Carter remarked that at present the United States "focuses on political transformation in Libya."

And he did not say a word about whether the Americans themselves are supposed to participate in a land operation or at least “coordinate” it.

Probably, the Pentagon is not going to participate in the ground operation. First, Obama, who has remained on the throne of 11 for months, will not start up any major military games in Syria, especially overland operations. Such plans, if they appear in the United States, can only be realized by his change in the White House, whose rule will inevitably begin under the slogans “Everything is not the same as Obama’s.”

Secondly, the statements of the monarchies of the Gulf need at least some practical actions. Oriental leaders love to make lush statements. But whether there will be actions behind them is a big question. After all, the United Arab Emirates’s references to the “aegis of the USA” are not accidental.

Thirdly, the meaning of the approval of the Saudis and their regional allies is obvious: Washington will approve everything related to the overthrow of Assad. Against the background of the apparent failure of the inter-Syrian negotiations (after which the Saudis thought about the “ground operation”), it finally became clear that there would be no compromise on Syria between the conflicting parties and there will not be.

The White House would have preferred to plow the heat with other people's hands: let the soldiers of the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia fight as best they can with the army of Assad. And most importantly - the Turks, who have long been interested in the "departure" of the Syrian president. One problem - the Russians in the region. That is why the Pentagon is not in a hurry to consolidate with the Saudis and other Arabs who allegedly want to defeat the IG. In the event of a collision (albeit unintentionally) of Arabs or Turks with the forces of the Russian Federation helping Assad, the United States is washing its hands. And at the same time they triumph: the Russians landed in a trap.

In the end, Syrian expansion will rest in Turkey. If Ankara wants to participate in the ground operation, then the union of the "land" enemies of Assad will be quite real.

Judging by the last belligerent speech of R. T. Erdogan, who got into the Russian press on the evening of February 7, Ankara is clearly going to do something.

The Turkish President said that Ankara in Syria should not allow a repetition of the situation during the invasion of the international coalition forces in Iraq in 2003, reports RIA News" with reference to Bloomberg.

“We don’t want to make the same mistake in Syria as in Iraq,” Erdogan said. The President recalled that Turkey refused to deploy US troops on its territory in 2003 and did not join the international coalition that later overthrew Saddam Hussein.

“It is important to see the horizon. What is happening in Syria cannot last for long. At a certain point, the situation should change, ”the Turkish president said. He also said that Ankara is ready for any developments in Syria.

In essence, Erdogan made it clear that his state would support the invasion.

We will remind, earlier the representative of the Ministry of Defense of Russia Igor Konashenkov сообщилthat what is happening on the Turkish-Syrian border shows that Turkey is preparing for a military invasion of Syria.

        ... war is a continuation of politics ... for 4 years they invested in the collapse of Syria and the opposite is true ... well, Assad’s victory will make him a Hero in the East ...

      The East is a delicate matter! And it is very problematic to speak of the true reasons for such sheikh militancy. The Arabs do not know how to fight there and don’t like it, so I don’t really believe in the seriousness of a full-blooded invasion, but the Turkish army is different ... Therefore, the sheikhs are inflating their cheeks only to solve some purely personal tasks, but they are pushing Erdogan to enter to Syria openly so that he could heat up his hands! After all, there is also Iran, which is unlikely to look at these Sunni non-aggression indifferently ... Oil, in this case, will certainly jump up, but it is hardly the only thing! ....
      Now I’m not even sure that the United States adequately assesses the situation in the region and will be able to somehow influence the course of events! But GDP clearly outlined Russia's range of interests, provoking the sympathy of many peoples in the region!

        And dark. Some kind of mouse fuss goes around the attempt to open a "second front", just like in 1944. Only there everything was more or less transparent, at least the enemy was defined - Hitler, and here everyone has their own interests (who has Assad, who has daish, who have RF) and more provoke each other to participate than they want to start. The Americans, of course, organize, observe and direct, it is not for nothing that this BW coalition has suddenly been created. Amers, in life, do it best, the main thing is not to miss the moment when it will be possible to triumphantly connect on the side of the winner. In the meantime, they are looking for a sucker who will be the first to start. In general, this role is visible - the Turks, there is no one else. I wonder how the Russian Federation will react to all this. I think, unpredictable for many, Putin is a master of unconventional moves.

      East is east. The main thing is to declare intentions as loudly as possible, but it is not necessary to fulfill them.
      On February 7, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, Anwar Gargash, announced that the kingdom announced its readiness to send troops to Syria to participate in a ground operation against the Islamic State. Gargash called the condition for the participation of the UAE in the campaign: its implementation under the auspices of the United States.
      That's right - we agree to fight in Syria if America commands, and at the same time protects from the Syrian army, the Iranian IRGC and the Russian Aerospace Forces. In turn, the United States, if there is at least one sane politician and military (in which serious doubts arise more and more often), will never want to lead a serpentarium of "like-minded people" from the countries of the Arabian Peninsula, and Egypt to boot. Wait and see.
      I have the honor.

    Saudi Arabia announces maneuvers ahead of ground operation in Syria
    The exercises, which will be attended by 350 thousand soldiers from 8 countries, will begin this Friday in the north of Saudi Arabia. They will last 18 days.

It seems that the country is less solid, as far as it is possible today in BV, and Al-Sisi seems to be sane, did not allow the country to slide into radical Islamism. Well, they would be on their own, like Iran, for example.

Judging by how the Saudis have been fighting with almost unarmed Hussites for a year and a half, Yemen is also a dark business with the Turks, in spite of their mosh, of course they can, but it is not known how the battle will show there.

    Why don't the Americans rejoice? There were those who would risk the lives of their soldiers and do dirty work for the United States.

    Dear, it’s correctly noted, you can declare, create coalitions, even carry out exercises, but the invasion is a serious step, Iran has already assessed the situation, the question is different, if the invasion of Syria begins with the stated desire to overthrow Assad, it’s just not about occupying the territory but they must understand this, Russia will not stop, the necessary statements have already been made, it is worth noting that this regional coalition is also not politically legitimate. There is a threat and it is necessary to prepare. PSfor cheers-patriots who advocated the sale of modern weapons to the UAE and other countries, so what is more important is PR and money, or is it the country's security?

    And Syria itself is no longer being asked. The Syrian government is not legitimate for the Ottomans and Saudis, and what is there to say in vain. I think that is why the Syrian army has stepped up, closes borders and frees cities and villages. The more they succeed, the less chance of success of the Ottoman-Arab coalition. And the mattress does not behave in a certain way, they are waiting for the elections ... I really hope that the Barmalei will be strangled before the change of leadership in the hegemon. Then the political process is not needed. And then you see what they came up with - some sort of shushera gathered in Geneva with only one purpose - to stop the offensive of the SAR army. They have a condition, you know!

    The question of the invasion of the Saudi coalition is a settled matter. However, Russia remains with its Air Force, which dominates the skies of Syria, which is why all these sheikhs, emirs and their emissaries have become frequent visitors to Moscow recently to enlist Putin, if not support, then at least not intervention.

    The Saudis are still warriors, in Yemen they can not do anything against the rebels, despite the fact that every year they buy weapons worth billions of dollars. But it’s not enough to buy weapons, you still need to learn how to use them. But the most important thing in the other is that you won’t learn fighting spirit in a short time, you won’t buy it, it accumulates over generations. Most likely the Turks will fight, pay the Saudi banquet, Qatar, and the states will usually command the parade and skim the cream.

    I don’t understand why everyone is sure that the introduction of Turkish-Arab forces into Syria means a war with Russia?
    they are not going to attack hmeimim and VKS, and why then should we bomb them? violation of the sovereignty of Syria is the problem of Syria. Syria is not a member of the ODKB. in the 1980 Soviet-Syrian treaty there is not a word about mutual military protection of the sovereignty of the parties to the treaty
    bombing them like an igil, they say, we did not know that this is not an igil, it is unlikely to succeed, because they will enter Syria openly and under their flags, and they will also inform the United Nations, NATO and the Russian Federation that they have entered such and such areas.

For the success of the operation, they will first destroy the airfield with infrastructure. Without air superiority, there will be no success in a modern war.

    bombing them like an igil, they say, we did not know that this is not an igil, it is unlikely to succeed, because they will enter Syria openly and under their flags, and they will also inform the United Nations, NATO and the Russian Federation that they have entered such and such areas.

    I will assume that under international law this is called aggression, i.e. WAR, with all the ensuing consequences. Under the law, only Russia is invited to provide assistance. The UN did not give any consent for the land operation, but most likely Russia will block this decision.

    because our air forces carry out air cover for the Syrian army. Those. the Syrian army and our air force are opponents of which must be destroyed.

    Turks and Saudis are officially included in the fight against terrorist organizations (igil, and for Turkey also the so-called democratic union). Thus, a clash with the Assad army is possible on the initiative of the Assad, i.e. in your opinion, the vks of rf without any threat to itself is initiated by asad attack Turks and Saudis.

    they will not come to him at all, they will occupy the settlements where the igil, nusra, etc. are located and will transfer them to the official Syrian opposition, which was legalized in Geneva.
    gradually the list of goals for the VKS will be reduced to zero, because neither igil nor nusra will be in Syria (formally).

    Do not indicate specific articles of specific international documents from which you make your assumptions?
    and is Russia not invited to fight the igil, but to participate in a civil war?

      I will answer
      Article Three of the UN Charter states

      Any of the following actions, regardless of the declaration of war, subject to and in accordance with the provisions of Article 2, will qualify as an act of aggression:

      a) the invasion or attack of the armed forces of a state on the territory of another state or any military occupation, no matter how temporary it may be, resulting from such an invasion or attack, or any annexation using force of the territory of another state or part of it;

      b) the bombing by the armed forces of a state of the territory of another state or the use of any weapon by a state against the territory of another state;

      c) blockade of ports or coasts of a state by the armed forces of another state;

      d) an attack by the armed forces of a state on the land, sea or air forces, or sea and air fleets of another state;

      e) the use of the armed forces of one state located in the territory of another state by agreement with the host state, in violation of the conditions provided for in the agreement, or any continuation of their stay in such territory upon termination of the agreement;

      f) the action of a state allowing its territory, which it has placed at the disposal of another state, is used by that other state to commit an act of aggression against a third state;

      g) the sending by the state or on behalf of the state of armed gangs, groups, irregular forces or mercenaries who carry out acts of the use of armed force against another state that are so serious that it is tantamount to the above acts, or its significant participation in them.

      Article 5
      1. No considerations of any nature, whether political, economic, military or otherwise, can justify aggression.

      2. Aggressive war is a crime against international peace. Aggression entails international responsibility.

      3. No territorial acquisition or special benefit resulting from aggression is and cannot be recognized as lawful.

        all this shobla eb.a whatever she declares there, has no reason to enter the territory of Syria. Syria is currently Russia's military ally. The aggression against the military ally is one hundred percent means Russia's participation in the war, which is why it was raised by the military alert of the Southern Military District .is it clear now??

          I agree, the UN charter is a document. the truth is too blurry. for example, point b - a missile from Syria to Turkey (and this has happened repeatedly) is equivalent to any other point.
          and if Article 51 of the same charter were to be attached here, then the invasion can be explained by the right to self-defense, we did so in 2008 in Georgia.
          Does the current agreement between Russia and Assad include Russia's unconditional participation in any conflicts of Syria, and not just the fight against "terrorist groups", I do not know, I would like to read the document on the basis of which we participate there.

    Well, it is not in vain that we have a general "nix" on all fronts. If anything, the landing party is ready to land in Syria. And nuclear-powered ships approached Gibraltar, waiting for the command to enter Middle-earth. So we'll see ...

    Those who do not know how to fight modern technology against Yemeni tattered raids with Saudi Kalash hope in some incredible way to defeat the battle-hardened army and the militia of Syria ???) I would like to laugh with what kind of crack the wooden coffins will be prepared for them.
