Iraqis with US support launched an operation to free Mosul

62
Iraqi government forces launched an attack on the city of Mosul, which is under the control of the “Islamic State,” reports MIC with reference to the head of the Pentagon Ashton Carter.




“We are talking about the initial stages of the operation to free Mosul,” said Carter at a press conference.

According to him, the Iraqi forces are provided with artillery support by the US Marine Corps, which has been deployed in the area of ​​the settlement. Makhmur.

“I am pleased to see that the Iraqi security forces have moved from their base of concentration in Makhmur and are attacking new positions as part of the early stages of the operation aimed at depriving the IG of control over Mosul,” said the head of the Pentagon. “The US Marines at Mahmur now provide artillery fire to help the Iraqi security forces advance.”

In turn, Joseph Dunford, head of the Chiefs of Staff Committee, who attended the press conference, said: “The Minister and I expect that the Iraqis will be provided with increased (military) means to create conditions for their operations in Mosul.” However, “the final decisions on this matter have not yet been made,” he added.

In addition, Dunford refuted media reports, which refer to the deployment of the 5-thousandth group of US forces in Iraq.

“We do not double count,” the general said, referring to the moment of rotation of troops in Iraq (some have already arrived, others have not yet lost). "Therefore, we are talking about the deployment of 3,8 in Iraq to thousands of American soldiers and officers."

      Media: the US coalition began to liberate Iraqi Mosul from ISIS
      March 5, 2016 at 13:16, views: 1842

      On Saturday, it became known about the start of an operation to free ISIS from the Islamic Republic’s second largest Iraqi city, Mosul, which was banned in Russia. It is the main center for the concentration of terrorists in this country.

      The operation began with cutting off the supply of terrorists between Mosul and Raqqa, Alsumaria reported, citing a statement by Brett McGurk, spokesman for the US president for the international anti-terrorism coalition. McGurk admitted that the operation would be difficult, but the allies were well prepared for it.

      The Iraqi authorities consider the liberation of Mosul a key task for 2016.

    Mattresses are great with masturbation! They have mattered Iraq so that you will not understand who is who, what is what. Initially, having entered Iraq, they brought the situation to the state in which Daesh became Daesh, the GDP fellow showed on the example of Syria how to help if you want to help. And the mattresses are mumbled, while they play "chamomile" the Middle East will burn, Europe will pay Erdogan for refugees, Washington for "security" from Russia

    I would like to hope for success. But it is very hard to believe that the American "partners" will not have a new hidden reason. The Turks were also going to take Mosul quite recently, they even settled down somewhere fifteen kilometers from the city. But the trouble is - the insidious Iraqis did not allow, obscenely hinting to the Turks that they themselves would cope with their problems.

    It reminds painfully "the second front" - until the winner is clearly defined, it is too early to take the side. But when one of the opponents in a fierce struggle is about to be put on his shoulder blades, you have to come, push the falling one and declare that it is he (who pushed) that is the true winner, who made the greatest efforts and who should get all the sweetest buns. I do not like Zhirinovsky, but I remember his words that amers should arrange a bloodbath in Iraq. Disdained then, but in vain, oh, in vain ...

    It’s they who will take the very Mosul, which they humbly handed over to the inferior group of barmaleys, having abandoned all their heavy weapons and even money in Mosul’s bank ... But did the Iraqis have another preparation? Do other instructors prepare them, new techniques? Daesh in the event of the loss of Mosul will have nowhere to go, only in Libya, and go get to her. Syrians will squeeze Racca now, and there is no doubt in it. So the Iraqis need a lot of luck to take the same Mosul. If the barmalei do not take it, then the coalition is screwed up in full.

    Forgive me, but the same Dunkirk, the Maginot Line and other battles of the beginning of the Second World War were pro. Sra.ny "allies" no less mediocre and stupid. But then, Germany was divided into 4 pieces: a piece for England, which spent the whole war on its islets, a piece for the United States, which appeared in the European theater of operations closer to the end of the war, a piece for France, which in one month passed the war and took part accepted mainly in the Wehrmacht and a piece, reluctantly and gritting his teeth, for the USSR, which made the main contribution to the victory and paid the highest price. Believe me, if the United States wants to, it will crush ISIS near Mosul in a couple of weeks, if not days, it's just not profitable for now. And to the section of the pie, they will be the first as always.

    Well, what can I tell you, my dear clever man? Here's the first thing that came to mind: Operation Deliberate Force - Slovenia, the invasion of Grenada, Operation Support for Democracy - Haiti (the hostilities lasted less than a week, the rest of the humanitarian mission), Operation Allied Force - Yugoslavia. Don't underestimate your main opponent. The American war machine may not be the strongest, but it is one of the strongest. In addition, the Yankees will have to deal with a completely manual organization, the positions of which, weapons and composition are known to the Americans thoroughly. In addition, they are quite capable of hitting civilians with cruise missiles, they do it somehow kindly, democratically, and this will significantly reduce the time required to select targets. It's just that while Assad's troops are dying, it is not profitable for the Americans to beat ISIS on the head. But it is also impossible to make it clear that they are not doing anything, hence the violent imitation of activity. And yes, by the way, it is not ISIS to bend, but ISIS under Masul (neither of them, in my opinion, they will not do, if you read my comments in full, then you know this, so your "tote" is useless). And in the end: dear, and you always address a stranger to "you"? Do not judge strictly, but this is the behavior of the most textbook collective farm shepherd in the worst sense of the word. My regards...
