Media: Syrian Express has competitors from America
Geysir Container Ship of US Shipping Company Transatlantic Lines

It is noted that "weapon delivered as part of a special program, despite the current ceasefire. ”

“In recent months, the FBO has published two applications for the transport of explosive goods from Eastern Europe to the Jordanian port of Aqaba in the interests of the US Navy Shipping Command. In the first application from November 3 2015, a carrier is required for an 81 container with explosive goods from Constanta to Aqaba. Subsequently, the application was detailed, it was clarified that the weight of the cargo is 994 tons, half of which should be unloaded at the Turkish military base Agadar, and the rest in Aqaba, ”the blogger writes.

According to published data, the list of cargo includes "AK machine guns, PKM machine guns, large-caliber DShK machine guns, RPG-7 grenade launchers, 9K111M" Factoria "ATGM (complex 9K113" Competition-M ") with a tandem warhead.

“The remaining cargo falls on ammunition for these weapons, as well as 14,5-mm machine guns and 82-mm mortars. Much of the grenades to the RPG-7 refers to the type of WG-7BT with a tandem warhead, "- stated in the publication.

Orders for transportation were received by Transatlantic Lines (has a Geysir vessel) and Schuyler Line Navigation Company (with a Corsica vessel).

“Although Syria was not mentioned in both applications as the final destination of the shipment, it was most likely intended for opposition groups fighting against the Bashar Assad regime,” the author writes, noting that neither Turkish nor Jordanian security forces use Soviet weapons. But the militants in Syria with such weapons were seen repeatedly.

“When at the Senate hearings there was a question about the secret armament of Syrian groups by the CIA, officials did not deny its existence, saying that they could not answer this question publicly,” the author recalls.

      This is their business and nothing personal, war is war and they want to earn money, as an example of World War II, when they supplied Hitler.

      First, they saturate the groups with weapons and then declare them moderate and begin to accuse Russia of bombing a moderate "opposition" .... in general, how they were hypocritical buggers ... and they remain.

    I would like to see such container ships of relatively small displacement as part of our merchant and auxiliary fleet. Very necessary and useful ships. Naturally built at our own shipyards. BDK to drive all the same is not their specialization.

      this site recently listed all the auxiliary vessels of the "Syrian Express", a motley company assembled all over the world, including bought from Turkey (!) - in one word, the BDK is not the main horse in that herd.

      This is a chartered American container ship.

      If you drown it, nothing will happen, or rather it will be, the operation will be launched in a new phase, at the level of С-5 Gelexi with Stingers, Tou, TPV, SIZ, etc. will fly to Turkey, and from there already a continuous stream to Syria.

      They are now packing up the northern ones under the new program. They supply mortars, PPE, medicine (field hospitals, individual first-aid kits, medical bags), small arms, sets for carts (Browning 50 caliber + factory machine with a damping system), TPV, optics, communications.

    I always said, I say and I will say that negotiating with America is the same as negotiating with the devil - anyway, they will find a way to cheat.
    In America, everything is arranged very conveniently for carrying out various actions of a different nature - private: funds, companies, banks, armies, and then on the list. If something goes wrong, it will be convenient to discourage them: it’s not us, it’s a private company to which we have no relationship and try to prove that this is not so.

    This is their business and nothing personal, war is war and they want to earn money, as an example of the 2nd World War, when Hitler was supplied.

    So here I completely agree with you, but let me add on my own that the Americans also had a hand in the beginning of World War I!

    War has always been the engine of progress. Here and the Neanderthals came up with a gun so that they don’t throw sticks at the mammoth. And so it paid off, they sold the patent and weapons to China. And you say that it’s chaos. The most important thing is that the people of Syria want peace, and not the countries of the world would push them to this.

      Quite the opposite. War has always stood in the way of humanity to progress. Death and devastation are always bad; peace and construction are always better. if they ate the funds that humanity spends on the war were directed to peaceful needs ... Dreams however. sad

      They same "USA" and gave birth to this mess. The only question is they need it for certain purposes for a short period of time, or they have long-playing plans for a long period. One thing is clear for sure, wherever the Americans go, everywhere the ass begins. Direct intervention or through opposition is not important.

    Well, a public response in the media followed today:

    "The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States and the intelligence services of Washington's allies
    prepared to send the so-called moderate opposition in Syria new weapons, including air defense systems"...
