Military Review

Media: the call of State Department employees to "bomb the Syrian army" is fraught with conflict with Moscow

48
The idea of ​​the State Department staff about the start of a military operation against the Assad army is dangerous by military confrontation with Russia, the New York Times writes.




“A description of a crisis is not the same thing as forming a productive and rational alternative strategy. Diplomats were unable to base the idea of ​​America’s direct military intervention, which President Barack Obama and his advisers had already considered and wisely rejected. The administration believes that such an action can only lead to even more chaos ",
quotes an article TASS.

The newspaper notes that the authors of the message to the president "were quite cautious and offered to use only weapons such as cruise missiles."

“Such missiles will allow the Americans to remain beyond the reach of Syrian means of retaliation, they (diplomats) also rejected the idea of ​​a full-scale invasion of America,” the author continues.

And what happens if “limited long-range strikes” do not help? “No matter how verified this operation may be, will it inevitably drag America into yet another quagmire in the Middle East and, quite possibly, into military confrontation with Russia?”, The newspaper asks.

The publication also criticized the idea of ​​creating fly-free zones in Syria.

“These no-fly zones should be much larger and cover areas where there is a significant risk of confrontation between American, Russian and Syrian aircraft,” the author believes.

In addition, he recalls that the Americans do not have permission from the UN to conduct military operations in Syria. "Obama does not have a UN Security Council resolution and the sanction of the US Congress to justify military actions against the government of President Bashar al-Assad," the newspaper states.

      Yes, maybe they are still shots. Moreover, in the 2013th year, the probability of an attack on the SAA was extremely high. Now the situation has, of course, changed, but nonetheless ... Who knows ...

          in the case of the Russian Federation, there is never a guarantee that it will not fly back.

          But nevertheless, I’m sure that in life they won’t get into a war room of such a level.
          There are many forces in the states that oppose each other. And these are far from democrats and conservatives. I'm talking about the so-called "doves of peace" and "mad dogs" like McCain.
          I think that the latter through NYT made it clear that dogs should not go into trouble where they are not sure. And what about the Middle East, then, as we all know, this is a delicate matter!

          Yes, no, beaten! Yes, how! Northern Vietnam, in due time, kicked them out of their country, although they burned and poisoned the Vietnamese. request But they are unlikely to be at war with them, they are afraid of a retaliatory nuclear strike, most likely they will bite some of their own six. They do it well - an example of the Baltic states. And then they will scream from across the ocean that Russia offends the poor Baltic people and they will need to be helped.

        Depends on how many Tomahawks belong to the disposal, as well as Russian bombs. And knocking them will hit our pocket. Several pieces can be brought down, although the real conditions for the use of anti-aircraft installations (useful experience for revision).

    But I’m just curious, but if our Foreign Ministry also openly discussed cruise missile attacks on, say ... Colombian drug dealers? Not, it’s better - for the Colombian military who do not fight well enough with the drug lords we dislike, but too effectively - with those we like wassat

    And at the same time, they have the audacity to call Russia a threat to world security. And their people do not have enough brains to not believe in it request

    you need to call a spade a spade, it’s an intervention against a sovereign state, America acts like an aggressor, it got away with it, Yugoslavia, Libya and Iraq, but in Syria, by invitation, there are the Russian Military Forces, how can the United States bomb Syria? it is necessary to declare war on Syria and Russia, which is unlikely, therefore it will remain, as is, continue to help the opposing side through 3 countries, and who knows

    The correct demonstration of "Caliber" in Syria has cooled the "hot" heads for a while, for how long? China and we are creating a good firebrand - "and not a friend and not an enemy, but" according to Vysotsky. The only hope is for the people, for us. We are dangerous when we are on X .., because we have nothing to lose well, but always heap, please. As an example, one in front of the Georgian column and that, turned everyone back. ...

    At one time, the USSR created an advanced industry in the same Baltics, almost all the electronics turned out to be there. What are the ports. In response, they became the occupiers. The US will not resolve a direct conflict for us, but to one degree or another we are always fighting. In Vietnam, our "doctors" and the "teachers" gave a good ameram. North Korea, a modern example of Syria, how many "advisers" NATO and the United States die under the blows of the Russian Aerospace Forces? Ukrainian Armed Forces who teaches and incites? Amers who are trying to create and maintain hotbeds of conflict along the perimeter of the borders of Russia with someone else's hands. And if you force Uncle Sam's mongrels into peace, then so that for a long time these cowardly whining dogs restore their booth ...

    It’s interesting, but in the State Department they heard something about international law. And how the conduct of hostilities on foreign territory corresponds to the Obama Nobel Prize. Is there that only fools are selected for work in the State Department, or are adequate people come across? Then there is a proposal: to form an attack battalion from those who proposed to conduct military operations in Syria and send them to carry out these very actions, let them try in their own skin what war is. Maybe then the brains will be included in the work.
