Nineteenth week of Russian intervention in Syria: Does Russia use nuclear weapons to protect Hmeimim?

79
Last week did not become evidence of a decrease in tensions between Russia and Turkey over Syria. Although the position of Russia is simple - “we are ready to fight” - the Turkish position is much more ambiguous: Turkish politicians say one thing, then the opposite and then something else. At times, everything sounds like an invasion is inevitable, and sometimes they say: "Turkey has no plans for a unilateral invasion." Since there will never be a UN permit to invade Syria, this means a kind of “coalition of the willing”, possibly NATO. The problem is that the Europeans have no desire to eventually reach the war with Russia. At the same time, the United States and France refused to hold a UN resolution that would confirm the sovereignty of Syria. Oops, right. The United States and France actually believe that the UN Charter (which confirms the sovereignty of all countries) does not apply to Syria. Think about it ...


Nineteenth week of Russian intervention in Syria: Does Russia use nuclear weapons to protect Hmeimim?


Constantly rumors appear that the top military leadership of Turkey is categorically against any attack on Syria, and that they do not want war with Russia. I don’t blame them at all, because they understand two very simple things: first, Turkey does not need war, only Erdogan, and second, when Turkey is defeated, Erdogan will blame the military for this. There are also signs of disagreement in the United States because of the prospects of such a war, with the neocons supporting Erdogan and pushing him to war, just as they did with Saakashvili, and the White House and the State Department say “cool down!” As for the Turks themselves - they are shooting at Kurdish and Syrian positions across the border, and at least there were two cases of crossing the border with small military forces.

From a purely military point of view, the Turks have no sense in accumulating forces at the border, declaring that they are ready to invade, then stop, conduct shelling and then just send a few small units across the border. What the Turks should do is to secretly begin to raise the level of readiness of their forces and then attack as soon as the Russians notice their preparations - even if this means that they will have to start military operations before they can fully mobilize and prepare. The advantages of a surprise attack are so great that in order to take advantage of them, almost all other considerations must be put aside. The Turks did the opposite: they advertised their intentions to invade, and when their forces were ready, they stopped at the border and began to voice completely opposite statements. There is no point at all.

What complicates the already chaotic situation is that Erdogan is clearly insane, and there seems to be at least the likelihood of some serious internal struggle between Turkish political leaders and the military.

Moreover, it seems that relations between the United States and the Erdogan regime are very bad. Things have gone so badly that Erdogan’s main adviser, Sheref Malkoch, said that Turkey could refuse the United States to use the Incirlik airbase for strikes against ISIS if the United States did not call the YPG a terrorist organization. Erdogan later refused this statement, but the fact remains that the Turks are directly blackmailing the United States. If Erdogan and his advisers seriously believe that they can publicly blackmail such a superpower as the United States, then their days are numbered. At least, all these irresponsible outbursts show that the Turks really fail under pressure, which they themselves have created.

And yet the fact that Turkey has not yet invaded is a tiny sign that perhaps the Turks might abandon this crazy idea or limit themselves to a “mini-invasion” just a few miles from the border. The military probably would have preferred such a minimal face saving option, but how will Erdogan and the madmen along with him behave?

Perhaps the Turkish military should have already realized that the country is ruled by a madman and do something about it?

But the Russians could not take the risk, and they brought their forces on alert. They pointedly placed the Tu-214Р - their most advanced reconnaissance and observation aircraft. TU-214Р can be considered “AWACS for ground forces”, this aircraft is used to monitor major ground battles (the standard Russian A-50 already controls Syrian airspace). In southern Russia, the VKS organized large-scale exercises involving a large number of aircraft that can be used in the war against Turkey — Su-34. VKS at the ready. Forces sea-based off the Syrian coast increased. Expedited shipments weapons. Everything is clear and obvious: Russians do not threaten - they are preparing for war. Yes, in fact, they are ready.

This makes it important to ask an important question: what will the Russians do if their relatively small forces in Syria are attacked and suppressed: do the Russians use nuclear weapons?

At least one reporter, Robert Perry, wrote the following: “A source close to Russian President Vladimir Putin told me that the Russians had warned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Moscow was ready to use tactical nuclear weapons in the face of Turkish forces. saudi attack. Is this really possible? Do Russians really use nuclear weapons if things go worse in Syria?

The Russian military doctrine speaks very clearly about the use of nuclear weapons by Russia. Here is the relevant paragraph:

27. The Russian Federation reserves the right to use nuclear weapons in response to the use of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction against it and (or) its allies, as well as in case of aggression against the Russian Federation with the use of conventional weapons, when the very existence of the state is threatened.

The decision on the use of nuclear weapons is made by the President of the Russian Federation.

There is no ambiguity. As long as there is no threat to Russia as a state, it will not use nuclear weapons. Some will no doubt say that the official military doctrine is one thing, and the reality in Syria is another, and if the Turks seize Hamim, Russia will have no choice but to use nuclear weapons.

There is a precedent for this kind of logic: when the United States deployed the 82 Airborne Division in Saudi Arabia as part of Operation Desert Shield, the Pentagon fully realized that if a much larger Iraqi army invaded Saudi Arabia, the 82 would die. They hoped that the United States Air Force and Navy would be able to provide a sufficient number of sorties to thwart the advance of the Iraqis, but if they did not succeed, it was clear that nuclear weapons would be used. In Syria, the situation is different.

First, the Russian forces in Syria are not infantry quick reaction forces, like the 82nd in Iraq. And the local enemy forces are extremely different. Secondly, the Russian contingent in Syria can count on fire support and reinforcement of the Russian fleet in the Caspian and Mediterranean seas and Russian aerospace forces on the territory of Russia itself. And last but not least, Russians can count on the support of the Syrian troops, Iranian forces, Hezbollah and probably the Syrian Kurds, who are now openly joining the 4 + 1 alliance (Russia, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Hezbollah), turning it into a 4 + 2 alliance, I suppose.

There is one important feature of this alliance, 4 + 2, which really represents a powerful incentive for the Turks to be extremely careful before taking any action: every member of the 4 + 2 alliance has a great military experience, superior to that of the Turkish military. The modern Turkish military is much more similar to the Israeli military in 2006 - they have plenty of experience terrorizing civilians, and these are not the forces that are prepared to wage "real" wars. For the Turks, there is a great risk that, if they really invade Syria, they may end up with the same nightmare as the Israelis when they invaded Lebanon in the 2006 year.

In the meantime, supported by Russian Syrian forces are moving forward. Since the beginning of this counteroffensive, the Syrians have succeeded in regaining all the strategic positions in western Syria, moving slowly but steadily, and now they are threatening Raqqah. See for yourself:



The essence is this: the size and capabilities of the Russian forces in Syria are expanding, and the level of cooperation between members of the 4 + 2 alliance is increasing. add to this the ability to deploy airborne troops up to the regiment (and fully mechanized) in Latakia, if there is such a need, and you will see that the Turks take a great risk if they attack Russian forces, even if Russia does not threaten with nuclear weapons. In fact, I do not foresee any scenario - with the exception of a massive US / NATO attack - in which Russia would use tactical nuclear weapons.

Honestly, the situation is far from being resolved. It’s not a coincidence that as soon as the cease-fire agreement was to come into force, two terrorist attacks took place in Turkey, of which it was convenient to blame the Kurds. Of course, it looks very similar to the fact that someone is very eager to bring Turkey to the course of a collision with Russia, is not it?

It makes no sense to predict what the Turks and their Saudi friends will create. We are clearly dealing with two regimes that gradually “lose”: they pounce on everyone (including their own American patrons), they are terrified of their own minorities (Kurds and Shiites), their propensity for violence and terror is comparable only to their own inability wage an ordinary war. Doesn't this remind you of anyone?

Of course! Ukronatsisty perfectly fit this description. By the way, guess what they did - they now dream of forming an anti-Russian alliance with the Turks. Amazing, right? Just imagine what the Ukrainian-Turkish-Saudi alliance will look like: a real gang of "Islamic-fascists", combining disgusting fanaticism, corruption, violence, extreme nationalism and military incompetence. Poisonous combination, of course, but not viable.

    And on the other hand, if the head of the enemy’s state is not a completely adequate person, it is possible that only through understanding what can be used, including nuclear weapons, will bring him back to reality a little! It is enough if his environment understands this .... - you look and Erdogan is already gone! A moderate opposition came to power - in the East, coups are an ordinary thing ... laughing

        The fact that 4 + 2 is recruiting ours cannot but rejoice. So we will win, and whether or not they will use nuclear weapons, it is clear that the application will be adequate and timely, in contrast to the use of nuclear weapons in Yemen and Donetsk by our enemies.

        The Turkish military, it seems to me, are people much more adequate than Recep Taip Erdogan. They represent the scale of the disaster that befalls them. Their entire infrastructure will be destroyed by our cruise and tactical missiles. In addition, a recent terrorist attack on a bus claimed the lives of 22 (!!!) pilots. In general, the military is by no means suicides, so that thought does not spread further on the tree.

      And then there is the "Daddy of all bombs" ... an aerial bomb of a volumetric explosion. Power is 44 tons in TNT equivalent.
      The results of the tests of the created aircraft munitions showed that it is comparable in its effectiveness and capabilities with a nuclear munition, at the same time, I want to emphasize this, the effect of this munition does not absolutely pollute the environment compared to a nuclear munition.

        11 of September 2007 of the year in Russia successfully passed the tests of the world's most powerful non-nuclear munition. The Tu-160 strategic bomber dropped a bomb weighing 7,1 tons and a power of about 40 tons of TNT, with a guaranteed radius of destruction of all living things - more than three hundred meters. In Russia, this ammunition was nicknamed "Dad of all bombs." He belonged to the class of volumetric explosion ammunition.

      If the author of the analytical article really considers the elected leader as a madman a large, albeit deeply disliking, country, then such an analysis can hardly be considered adequate.

Hitler's generals also spoke, Russian "crazy" they are not fighting according to the rules, how it all ended, you know. Syria and Russia with Iran need to be prepared for any development of the situation, from the invasion of Turkey and Co. to an attempt to physically eliminate Assad. Demonstration of force, far-fetched accusations against Russia and Assad are elements of pressure to achieve an advantage in the negotiation process. hi

        Recently, the point of view on the incomplete sanity of Erdogan is increasingly expressed both in our country and in the west. Last week, on one of the federal channels (I don’t know which one) I saw a story about this, with a selection of statements by domestic and Western respondents, as well as an analysis of Erdogan’s behavior and statements by a psychiatrist. A possible diagnosis is from an obsession to paranoia. So the author of the article simply voices one of the points of view, the probability of his being right in this matter is very high.

The book essentially outlines the strategy of Turkey's transformation into a world power by reducing its dependence on the West and Western organizations by establishing a system of balances - building relations with key countries outside the West and reaching dominant positions in the "post-Ottoman" space [

And you don’t think that a cockroach would have had enough of a thousandth of the energy that you applied. Here the question is in full confidence that the cockroach will be destroyed. It is also necessary with the Turks. In a pointed manner, alert the nuclear forces, invite the military attaché of the Turks, show, here is the rocket, here are the coordinates of its target, here are the starting keys in the locks, it remains only to drop the boots on the remote control. put the orderly with a felt boots over the remote control, so that he coughs up from a cough behind his back and let this attache keep him calm.

        Pentagon chief Ashton Carter, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, General Joseph Dunford, and CIA Director John Brennan are convinced that the ceasefire in Syria will fail and this will happen through the fault of Moscow. Thus, they are calling in advance for strengthening anti-Russian measures, that is, "creating real trouble for Russia." It is reported by The Wall Street Journal, citing a source in the presidential administration. The original RT news in Russian: https://russian.rt.com/article/150295.
        They are already preparing. To what? Perhaps Turkey is a distraction? Everything is fine in the article that they do not prepare the invasion. Where to wait for a dirty trick?

Our people clearly explained: "you laid down your arms, you are an oppositionist, you did not lay down, you are ISIS." It will be difficult to argue with the partners in essence.

      What to say about the article? In general, interesting, people got excited on the forum)))) But in fact, I would suggest that the author take an interest in using TNW, not in our forum (we are forum users, with our directness we can apply laughing ) And at the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
      And on the topic, before the operation in Syria, the headquarters considered various options for countering our armed forces in Syria. And I think these options are on the shelf there. Do not underestimate our operatives at headquarters.
      I’ve been watching recently, they often began to mention in vain nuclear weapons, they say they’re applicable, they say they’re not applicable, they say this is a deterrence weapon.
      Let’s do it without cunning, it’s a weapon, and like every gun on the stage, once it is, it will fire, not with flowers, and with salt and bread. So it costs us all to consider such an option as application.
      As one acquaintance said, about the short barrel, if you are ready to use it, get it and use it, and do not wave it in front of the enemy’s nose, otherwise, in the best case, they will take it away, in the worst case, they will kill you from your trunk. The same applies to nuclear weapons. For Russia, the situation of decomposition from the inside is much worse.
      In the conditions of hybrid wars, even a nuclear shield does not guarantee that no one will attack the country or try to organize a “color revolution” on it.
      If the country begins to disintegrate from within thanks to these riots and revolutions, nuclear missiles will not help.
      And there, you can bang. God forbid, of course, but in the case of a negative scenario, we don’t bother there, they will inside the country, it’s not for nothing that the Liberals have begun to fuss recently. Yes, and in Ukraine, according to militia reports, only in Avdeevka there are two battalions of emigrant Chechens who fled from Chechnya after the second Chechen war, and the Circassians. There are two battalions that speak Arabic and Syriac-Arabic.
      In fact, these are some formations that ISIS is now evacuating from Syria, where the front line is being cut under the blows of our aircraft. These units may well be transferred to the Donbass and settle there. So everything is much more complicated than it seems. request

        It is always interesting to read your comments. Without unnecessary emotions, essentially a question.
        Here, one thing is not clear. If the war is hybrid, then where are our retaliatory measures against the enemy. The dollar is falling only in words. The US and UK economies have grown and are growing. Something from such a position, longing makes its way. We are only in the dead of defense. How long?

          It turns out like this. I don’t understand all this mouse fuss like with the dollar (in economics), since I’m not an economist, but it also bothers me.
          As for the retaliatory measures, Syria, the Russian Army, and actions in this region have cooled the ardent ardor of the "partners".
          The qualitative composition of the army increased sharply, not to mention armaments. If there were no army, today, in the conditions of an aggravated crisis, we would be dealt with toughly and cynically. Just like with Gaddafi. They would not even explain anything. This is one of the peaks of the iceberg, in this I see our opposition. There is also an underwater part that we do not see, and do not know about its existence, I think our main forces are there.

          Who will replay whom.

          And what about for a long time or not, I think so, we have set the goal of re-equipping the army before the year 20, that is, all resources and forces are directed at this, therefore, I assume that after the country receives the Shield and the Sword, they will also engage in internal politics. And to be torn into two fronts of death is like, we will not stretch, it is on this Achilles heel, and our "partner-liberals", housing and communal services, social services, and so on are beating. This is our weak link, with grief at the hands of the drivers. request

    A Turk immediately approaches him and asks:
    - What are you doing? Looking for problems? Do you want to run over?
    - This is your first problem. Aggressiveness. You always try to create problems from scratch.

    When the disco ends, a group of Turks is already waiting for the Russian.
    “Now you will answer for your words,” they say.
    - This is your second problem. Cowardice. You cannot solve your problems yourself and immediately collect yours for any reason.

    - But how dare you talk to us like that!?! - Turks drew knives
    “This is your third problem,” the Russian continues, taking out a gun. “Stupidity.” You always come to a shootout with knives.
    Erdoganchik looks like a guy who is an instigator of a fight in adults (I remember it used to be, they send a small ga.vn.yuka laughing ), and when he grew up and stayed like that, he grabs a knife just a little, and we still live to hit the small intestine request sad

    The situation is stalemate. The United States needs a war with Russia like air. Large-scale. We can say very large-scale. There are many intertwining reasons, but the main three. The first is economic. The war in this region will raise the prices of hydrocarbons and devalue the dollar, which is what the United States needs. A plus to this is the prospect of completely subjugating the intractable Saudis and Turks in this matter, but here it is also interesting. The Russians must be allowed to smash them to pieces, but not to dust, so that later they can intercede at the right time and agree on peace and cooperation under the onerous condition. Yankees know how to talk to Russians for others. The second is military. Lately, the Russians have had a lot of the latest and most promising weapons, with which they frightened not so much the whole world, how many NATO military experts. As a result, the Russians seized large shares of the arms market and interest is only growing. Is it as good as it is painted? Only a major military intervention by someone else's hands will answer this question and reveal the secrets, and as a result, will give the keys to the antidote and the noise about the uselessness of Russian weapons. The third is political. Russia will strengthen itself in the face of the US allies as a dangerous and formidable adversary with whom it is necessary and necessary to talk only from the position of sanctions and restrictions. For a long time, it will lose the last sympathizers in the camp of the enemy, the United States, on the contrary, will restore the status quo. Again the Cold War, the Iron Curtain, the United States is a great and just gendarme, Russia is a dangerous and terrible outcast, the big DPRK. Naturally, most of the Russian niches of "market economy" (manual economy) in APEC are occupied by the United States with its Trans-Pacific Partnership, and it is again a powerful and unrivaled economic power. So what should Russia do to prevent the pindo $ tan's plans from coming true?

    Well, article 27 of the Russian Military Doctrine clearly answers this question ...
    "Secretly" the Turks will not be able to mobilize their Armed Forces, and our 214R arrived in Syria on time ...
    The bombardment of objects in Syria from Russian territory, with the simultaneous destruction of objects from the Caspian Sea, has already shown the capabilities of Russia ... Yes, and the "Green Dol" with Calibers on board strengthened the fleet grouping off the coast of Syria ... As they say, the ship is small, but far away : Calibers with YAGC will be a headache for many ...

    Honestly, I would not want the tactical nuclear weapons to be used, since this will be the development of the first step of going down to hell for everyone ... However, if it’s really worth it, if you finish Russia, then everyone will get their faces ...

    Russia's position should be simple - those who do not want to die in the nuclear Armageddon collect manat, scoot headlong to their territory and sit there quietly and do not shine. Then perhaps spare. Who does not agree - receives from his country a radioactive desert or sea-ocean. There is a choice.

    Disputes about whether or not to use tactical nuclear weapons can be easily resolved if we consider the situation of the involvement of the Russian Armed Forces in the conflict with Turkey not only narrowly, but within the framework of the Syrian conflict, and more broadly - taking into account the confrontation with such a powerful adversary as NATO as a whole.
    The fact is that a confrontation with Turkey will cause unacceptable damage in any case to the Russian armed forces, even in the event of a victory over Turkey. Actually, I have no doubt in the defeat of Turkey in the conflict with Russia. The only question is the loss of sides in manpower and equipment in the event of a conflict without the use of nuclear weapons. Losses will be more than significant when using conventional weapons against the Turks. All this will weaken the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to a level unacceptable for the implementation of tasks to counter the NATO forces threatening Russia from the western direction. During the military confrontation with Turkey, at the initial stage, provocations from the Armed Forces of Ukraine (possibly Georgia) are possible at the same time, because NATO is confident that Russia will not risk using nuclear weapons against Ukraine and Georgia.
    My opinion is that the use of TNW in the event of Turkish aggression is inevitable and simply necessary to maintain a balance of forces in conventional weapons with NATO forces. At the initial stage, the most powerful strike by conventional means will be necessary, if they do not come to their senses, immediately destroy the enemy’s TNW units. Minimize direct clashes between the RF Armed Forces and Turkey.
    PS. Although Putin and Shoigu certainly know better.

      The situation is arch-vile: a really serious conflict with the Turks will greatly harm Russia. But - if you switch the country to a wartime regime in time, carry out military and civil mobilization and get rid of political and economic ballast and, especially, the 5 column, then perhaps you can do without nuclear weapons.

    The advantages of a surprise attack are so great that in order to take advantage of them, almost all other considerations must be put aside. The Turks did the opposite: they advertised their intentions to invade, and when their forces were ready, they stopped at the border and began to voice completely opposite statements. This makes no sense at all.

    Most likely this is a bluff, like this:
    A source close to Russian President Vladimir Putin told me that the Russians warned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Moscow was ready to use tactical nuclear weapons if it was necessary to rescue their troops in the face of the Turkish-Saudi attack

    Weaknesses in the knees of the Turks and Saudis against 4 + 2 fight. Here, and without TNW, everything will cost a broken face Amerov sixes.

    Antikiller55, Yes, the stump is clear that they are weak ... and they will definitely rake in full, because it will not be an anti-terrorist company, but a war to destroy the enemy state.

    But I feel sorry for our guys (and by the way, too, since I will most likely also have to participate in the process). What is the point of giving the Turks the opportunity to try to spoil Russia sometime in the future - and all this at the cost of the lives of our soldiers? Not using TNW, this is essentially carte blanche for the Turks: we reduce our superiority and give the enemy a chance! What is the point in this breadth of soul? History does not teach that they will not appreciate? Europe has estimated the million dead Soviet soldiers? It is necessary to learn from the "civilized west", do they consider us savages? So let's learn from them: first we think about ourselves, loved ones, and then, if time will be about others ...

    The fact that 4 + 2 is recruiting ours cannot but rejoice. So we will win, and whether or not they will use nuclear weapons, it is clear that the application will be adequate and timely, in contrast to the use of nuclear weapons in Yemen and Donetsk by our enemies.


    And what? In Yemen and Donetsk already used tactical nuclear weapons?

    The use of nuclear weapons to solve problems in a foreign country is bullshit. There are many other ways to influence the situation.

      True, in some cases, the application of other methods will require so much time that not everyone will see the result of the impact on the situation ... recourse
      unlike the use of nuclear weapons, when the result is not seen creating a tense situation ... recourse

    Maybe that's why it was about the "Russian Arab Republic?"

    The Russian military doctrine speaks very clearly about the use of nuclear weapons by Russia. Here is the relevant paragraph:

    27. The Russian Federation reserves the right to use nuclear weapons in response to the use of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction against it and (or) its allies, as well as in case of aggression against the Russian Federation with the use of conventional weapons, when the very existence of the state is threatened.

    The decision on the use of nuclear weapons is made by the President of the Russian Federation.

    Why are there so many articles on a given topic in the last two days? Try public opinion? On the button if that reap is not it.
    And some also have a lot of constitutional amendments on various topics.

    In Syria, against the allied Russian army, WMDs were already used.

    Gospadayaya, another urapatriotic article. Yes, no one will use nuclear weapons. Putin kanesh is a desperate guy, but not to that extent. Although it is rumored that Putin did call the United States and said that in the event of a Turkish attack, nuclear weapons could be used. Apparently Obama did transmit this important message to Erdogan, so they stopped at the border.

    One aspect is not clear:
    As long as there is no threat to Russia as a state, it will not use nuclear weapons.
