State Department called on Arab countries not to supply weapons to the Syrian opposition

The United States urges Arab leaders to refrain from supplying weapons the formations of the Syrian opposition, transmits RIA News Statement by State Department spokesman Mark Toner.


State Department called on Arab countries not to supply weapons to the Syrian opposition


“Given the current situation, the cessation of hostilities, we would urge all parties to refrain from such actions,” - Toner said, responding to the question "Does the United States discourage its partners in the region from delivering weapons to Syria, including man-portable air defense systems."

This issue was raised after reports of a downed Syrian aircraft in the province of Aleppo. According to the Russian military, the fighter was shot down using air defense.

When asked by journalists about how the air defense system got to the militants, the State Department spokesman answered that he does not yet have “independent confirmation of the plane crash and the presence of such weapons among the oppositionists.”

"It is not clear how they could get such weapons", Said Toner.

The agency recalls that throughout the many years of war in Syria, a number of countries in the region regularly supplied weapons to numerous opposition groups fighting with the current government.

    Well, right, there is nothing to create competition. Now the program of rearmament of FSA "divisions" and brigades is actively operating. The rifle is supplied, Browning on standardized turrets, mortars, ammunition, mines, cartridges, PPE, TPV and so on.

    At present, the 99 and 35 divisions in northern Aleppo are actively rearming, and it is expected that they will launch an attack on the Caliphate, with such sauce, and their weapons are being launched.

    Politicians need war to seize resources and sell weapons. In terms of turnover, the arms business is comparable to the oil business. The result of US policy is lobbying for the interests of the elites (owners of defense and oil companies) and killing the population of planet Earth.

    Seriously, there are two options. 1. Application for "air", cheap propaganda of peacefulness. Then everything is the same. 2. A real signal to "vassals" and allies. So the decision has been made and agreements have been reached. First of all, agreements with Russia. But if a Russian plane were shot down. I think no one had any doubts that they would find out who shot, what shot, who supplied, who sold, who is to blame. Tomatoes wouldn't be enough. Only bloody diarrhea from videoconferencing. And the corresponding conclusions.

    But seriously, it is possible 2 options:
    1. The United States wants to control the situation with the weapons available to the "opposition". The point is not at all about the desire to create a kind of "monopoly"; the United States even without this money - "at least chew the booty", but in an effort to somehow manage the situation. If the Saudis and others like them begin to supply weapons uncontrollably, then the amers themselves may have to subsequently disentangle all this - in particular, at the cost of the amers' downed aircraft.
    2. So the United States sobered up and decided to play by our rules.
