Italy allowed to use the base in Sicily to launch American combat drones

37
Italy allowed the US military to send combat UAVs to protect coalition forces from the IG group in North Africa, reports RIA News Reuters message.


Consequences of hitting the US Air Force in Libya, February 19 2016.

“The agreement involves only defensive missions. Drones will be located at Sigonella airbase, the Italian authorities will decide on the dispatch of UAVs for each request, ”the agency writes with reference to the Italian military department.

At the same time, "Reuters" notes that "at the moment no requests have been received yet." One source clarified that the drones were still used by Americans, but without weapons on board.

Another publication, the Wall Street Journal, reported that the United States has been seeking this resolution for more than a year.

Recall that the IG is currently strengthening its position in Libya, where a dual power has been established after the overthrow of Gaddafi. Some parts of the country are not controlled by any of the governments. Now extremists of various kinds are in charge there.

      This is their essence. They lack their SUPER-volcano, with its caldera about 200-ton kilometers, so it is necessary to take Etna as well, why in vain is giving Italy's ash and lava ?!

      And how many militant militants were destroyed as a result of this blow?
      Or was there a base for supplying them ?! So what did they supply them with ?!
      What is the effect of the bombing except for the destroyed building ?!

    In order to reach the Syrian front from Sicily, it is necessary to pass the lines of "target detection", "target suppression", "target destruction". Borders controlled by the RF Armed Forces. Not those "exclusive" permissions are asked. The case was that the Iranians "hacked" an American drone and put it in their place. "-Shurik, have you had any accidents at the construction site? - No! - There will be! ....". Operation Y.

        I join! All with a holiday, both men and women (a lot depends on them), and most importantly, I am very glad to see that at the present time at least something is being done for the army, I listened to statistics on the radio in the period from 2012 to the present, all parts were completely transferred to the buffet ", say nonsense, but it says a lot! The mood and normal nutrition of military conscripts and contract servicemen directly affects combat training. I say this not by hearsay.

    But if you look soberly, then Italy from all countries of Old Europe, behaves in relation to Russia,
    much more decent than the rest. Back in the days of the USSR, she built us "vases", despite the indignation of the United States. She was against the war in Iraq. Birlusconi is friends with VVP. Now the new, young Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in 2015. twice visited Russia, at an economy forum and on an official visit, despite the "isolation of the Russian Federation." He was the first in the EU to oppose sanctions. In response, VVP visited Milan in 2015. We have trade relations with Italy in second place after Germany. Italy has never participated in Russophobic orgies. And "drones" are tactical trifles. What is the noise ?!

    Sicily is an economically backward region.
    And for renting the territory, Americans pay regularly to the local
    administration. And ... you need to feed, water, place the base workers, their families.

    new military operations in northern Africa will not differ much from past military operations during the Second World War. Only the commanders of the forces have changed and the equipment is more modern.
