Media: Washington will send another special forces group to Syria


The US "administration is preparing to send dozens of special forces soldiers to Syria in addition to 50, who are already serving as advisers to Syrian rebels and helping them fight ISIS," a Pentagon source told the newspaper.

According to him, "additional instructors, the number of which can reach 200, will be able to train more Syrian-Arab fighters, who are likely to play a crucial role in the capture of Raqqa, which is actually the capital of the IG."

The source also noted that the Pentagon "would like to use Apache helicopters that were delivered to Iraq, but are used only to protect American personnel, and therefore intend to order them to be used in the battle for Mosul."

According to the newspaper, a decision on this issue may be announced in a few days. Washington, in particular, fears that "hasty steps may complicate the situation for the Iraqi authorities."

    I think they are being sent because the special forces sent earlier there somehow accidentally got lost there, in the deserts of Syria.
    Something I do not remember the super-operations of the US "commandos", which ended in overwhelming success. If there were such, the states would trumpet the whole world and shoot a dozen blockbusters based on these "feats" (I do not consider the destruction of the hopelessly ill head of al-Qaeda Osama bin Laden in Pakistan an outstanding special operation).

      For them, the main thing is not victory, but presence in the right place and at the right time. To attribute superiority in everything to yourself, to spit for them once, the media will help and there are plenty of vassals who will pick up and carry around the world. With Palmyra, misfortune came out; it did not work to cling to her release. Now there will be the appearance of vigorous activity around Raqqa so as not to repeat mistakes.

          I remembered the joke:
          - Grandfather, tell your grandfather how you fought?
          - Well, I’m somehow sitting in the bushes ...
          - Do you watch the Germans?
          - You could say that! repeat

            There, it seems that an old special forces group has already been eaten up, asking to send fresh ones!

          Honestly, I am beginning to get sick of the hypocrisy of our external "geopolitics": American special forces are conducting subversive actions against the legitimate rule of Syria, which we are helping, the United States asks not to bomb the areas where its saboteurs are located - and ours answer "okay, we will not." Now the states are already sending 200 "advisers" to illegal armed gangs, which are called by a euphemism "opposition" and are at war with the legitimate government. We will step aside even now - "please work, we will not interfere, we are fighting terrorists together"? And then this "opposition", as in Aleppo, lets the "neoppositions" terrorists concentrate their backs on them, and they begin a massacre in which our Russian boys will also die.

      No, the volumes of deliveries of Western weapons to loyal groups are growing, the need for training personnel and coordination of disparate groups is growing. Plus an aircraft lead, call the Hornets, Strike Iglov and Warthogs do not trust the broads. As a result, for example, an attack on the IG, now in the north it choked and grew into a cauldron, which, with Turkish help, bombing with all that is, and a giant strain of forces, managed to be released. This was all because there was insufficient coordination (other groups didn’t come to the IS breakthrough site), there was no aviation (because, as they used the long shoulder of the call, through the broads, then confirmation through the UAV, then the A-10 arrived, but it was too late).

      Judging by the scarce information, at least the one that is published, the Americans claim that there are fifty "instructors" already present among the Kurds.
      The most terrible suspicion is simply specialists who are pushing everyone and everything with their heads there and are engaged directly in the "land" in the redistribution of weapons and cash flows. Simply the role of "watching" ...

      And yet, the American special forces are very professional ... training, weapons, good intelligence makes them dangerous. We must stop blaming everyone and everything and take what is useful to everyone. It will not be patriotic, but it will be smart and wise.

    And they were called there, to Syria? Legally, there are only ours. The hegemon, out of habit, does not reckon with all sorts of rules and laws there. They are not written for him. Well then let them not be offended, if that.

      Let them not be offended and let them not be surprised if they meet there not with the "natives", but with the Syrian Army already hardened in constant battles, fighting Kurds all their lives, Hezbollah fighters, Iranian, North Korean, and finally - Russian Special Forces. And let them constantly expect shots in the back from those on whose side they decided to fight.

      Rather, private traders and mostly instructors on how to use the equipment and weapons provided. I don’t believe in special forces, because ISIL will catch one such scandal ............

      100%. Coming soon on all leading TV channels: the documentary "Syrian Fracture", which will colorfully describe how the brilliant US command at a critical moment decided to throw an additional group of superfighters into the Syrian meat grinder. That ultimately broke the back of world terrorism. Obama will receive the 2nd Nobel Peace Prize. Ukrainians, psheks and Labuses will rally even more around the hegemon and will ask in the direction of Russia like: "Are you weak?"
      But seriously, in my opinion, these peppers will be sent there so that they with their asses would cover the bearded from air strikes. We are not ... (partners) are not bombing.

    Washington will send a special forces group to strengthen the confrontation of the government army.
    They do not need reconciliation - the US is seeking to strengthen the confrontation. And now they need time to rally trained militants and prevent government forces from occupying key points.
    Assad will win if government forces can occupy Aleppo + Deir ez-Zor + Raqqa.
    Otherwise, Syria will be divided and even in the liberated part of Syria there will be no rest.
    This is not a fight against terrorism, this is a confrontation between Syria and state expansion.
    Syria needs peace; states need oil regions of Syria.
    Everything else is a cover for American aggression, both the opposition and the IG. Moreover, the latter are not very different, they all fight against Syria with the money of sponsors and prepared by the United States.
    Correlation: for 5 trained oppositionists there are 495 Igilovites.
    However, during the pressurization of the IS, the surviving IS bandits will be given the status of moderate opposition.

    Why have you inserted a photo of these poor fellows? Is this a hint? Like so finish?

    The military operation "Red Wings", which was carried out by American troops in eastern Afghanistan in the Kunar province in late June - early July 2005. During the operation, four fur seals of Detachment 10 were tasked with capturing or killing the famous Taliban leader Ahmad Shah. During the operation, a detachment of seals was discovered by three local shepherds, which caused a discussion in the detachment about the need to kill them to continue the operation. After the decision was made to release the shepherds, a squad of seals was attacked by soldiers of Ahmad Shah and destroyed. When trying to evacuate the seals from RPG-7, the Chinook helicopter was shot down, and all those on board, including the quick reaction squad, were killed. Marcus Luttrell, wearing a beard cap, was the only member of the fur squad who managed to hide and survive thanks to the help of local Pashtuns.
