The British military called the exact number of Islamists killed by them

69
British Air Force 18 months of participation in the ongoing operations in the Middle East destroyed 996 militants IG, reports RIA News message of the military department of the country.




“As a result of the bombing of the Royal Air Force since September 2014, 974 extremists in Iraq were destroyed. More 22 militants were destroyed in Syria after the British Parliament voted to expand the zone of the operation against the IG, ”the release says.

It is emphasized that "there are no casualties among the civilian population from air strikes."

The agency also cites the words of the Minister of Defense Michael Fallon, who claims that the Royal Air Force "made significant progress in the fight against the IG."

“Terrorists have lost 40% of the territory, their oil revenues have decreased by a third, and they suffer significant losses. Now we must make an effort and defeat them, ”Fallon added.

          Sorry Hitler turned around, the picture of the world would be different. Although this war is called strange. Because neither England nor Germany needed it. And to poke into it the USSR had no reason.

          In an amicable way, they only had the "Battle of Britain" at that time was one of the significant successes and then, according to the initial alignment of forces, it was a previously failed operation for the Germans.
          But the fact that Britain (like France) missed just the perfect moment to hit Germany from the rear and roll it out, while the entire Wehrmacht was in Poland, and only imitated the war during this period ("Strange War"), in fact, threw their official ally - Poland, already says a lot

                Poland in 1940 was gone. It was shared by Germany and the USSR
                in 1939.

                  I agree - Poland was no longer in 1940, but the trouble is - it really refused to let in Soviet troops through its territory! But only a little earlier - when Czechoslovakia was divided ... Poland, by the way, also participated in the division ...
                  I find in this, if not a manifestation of some justice, then at least a deep historical irony - the one who was so eager to divide his neighbor (was ready for this potential enemy to lick one place!) Was divided by neighboring powers ...
                  Poles from this worth sooo what lesson to learn ....

              Wait a minute, comrade))))) At this very moment - the Germans and I were a) neutral - the treaty "On Peace and Trade" and the notorious "Non-aggression Pact" recall,
              and b) the Germans did not fight at that time with our allies!
              For a minute, Poland, which Hitler attacked, had an official agreement with England and France on direct military assistance in the event of aggression against it by a third power. Roughly speaking, in the event of a German attack on Polsha, the British with the Franks were to instantly declare war on the Germans and roll it into the trash. Announce something (what's the most interesting!) Announced, but not rolled out for some reason)))))
              Rather, why is everything clear - they had a clear goal - to send Hitler to the east, they only miscalculated a little - he first turned on them, and then only on us ...

          When the Germans, contrary to the "gentlemen's agreement," "accidentally" bombed civilian objects, then, in general, it started. And so there was a very interesting war, especially the Bank of England with the Reichsbank in terms of some transactions, German and Anglo-Saxon capital, when the Germans in good faith bought out the shares of many American and English enterprises in Austria and Holland, and what they did not buy out was replaced with privileged ones. Only business is nothing personal.

          If the USSR fought, then in Berlin it was all over. But the shaves, both then and now, are making a appearance, then they create governments in exile (Poland, Yugoslavia), or they decide who to support.
          “We have destroyed 974 terrorists,” and things are still going on there, as they have been pulling Iraq off, and so are they doing it.

          How they fought we know, especially in Dunkirk. They created a third Reich and an alibi for themselves in order to take advantage of the fruits of the Russian Victory. And the Germans would have won, so the Ziono-Anglo-Saxon global mafia had used their victory.

        For three centuries, if no more such practice has been carried out, not only from England, but from Austria, France, Prussia. I’m not talking about the Poles. They are entering the war either at the very end or not at all, but when summing up they are the first to summarize the war, to snatch a piece fatter. Here are the wars of Peter and the Swedes, and the wars of Elizabeth and Catherine, and the war with Napoleon, when Suvorov had to cross the Alps, and the war of 1805.

      London is bastard, are they still taking an example from Churchill?

      This is the national custom of foreign policy. "Britain has no permanent allies, Britain only has permanent interests." British Prime Minister Henry John Temple Palmerston's speech on March 1, 1858. Churchill also liked to quote him. Continuity on the face.

    Such accuracy can be ensured when you have your own people in the camp of opponents.
    In this case, everyone is "ours", because Britain also had a hand in their creation and financing ...

    Then from the Kalash to the enemy’s side you will turn ... and it’s not known whether he was hit, wounded, or killed ... But they directly calculated the losses of the terrorists. You can only calculate the exact number of those killed if they obeyed you and were paid by you. Then such accuracy and lack of civilians is understandable.

    Well, you can still count on the corpses in the conquered territory! BUT these calculations do not apply to this example.

    And they just write down all the dead in the barmaley. So there are no civilian casualties. The accuracy of the calculations is shocking. Then what, they send out ground service, count the remains? And after the airstrike - also with a field genetic examination? Because the fragments are difficult to identify. How much they do not respect those who are "shoved" such information.

    It's like in a joke about a Russian chef in a canteen at a factory. He was asked: "How many cutlets can you make from 1 kg of meat?" To which he replied: "999".
    “Why not 105?”
    - And more than a hundred - already buns!

    Before the arrival of the Russian air forces, IS in Syria was only expanding its territory.
    England, as always, was a lie: he didn’t say thanks to whom exactly and what exactly the IG began to lose territory.
    Already in the blood of the west constantly lie: you look like he screwed: we are fighting, well, the enemy lost territory, like this is thanks to us, but he didn’t say directly. Primitive manipulation of consciousness.
    True, while only you fought, the enemy acquired territory. Such a little nuance.))

    The British military called the exact number of Islamists killed by them
    Sounds almost the same as "British Scientists". The exact figure is 996 people. I wonder how they counted them? Or does every Islamist have a British chip?

    James Bondavich sat in the bushes and counted all destroyed.
    2014 extremists killed in Iraq since September 974
    It was 97 (4) of the 974th found at the local cemetery. They came down from heaven and considered it.
    Another 22 militants were destroyed in Syria
    And these "achievements" are undeniable as a pound, as the discoveries of British scientists, as a reference ounce.

    How were they kept records - were they counted by severed heads or by legs, dividing in two? What if legless or headless terrorists are caught or sheep. not converted to ISIS? I would like to get acquainted with the Accounting Manual?
