The head of the Pentagon intends to replace Sean Macfarland, commander of the troops of the western coalition in Iraq and Syria, reports RIA News Post Washington Post.


Pentagon will appoint a new commander of the operation against ISIS


According to the newspaper, citing its sources, "the new commander should be a veteran of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, Lieutenant General Stephen Townsend, who is the commander of the 18-th airborne corps located in Fort Bragg (North Carolina)."

According to the report, General Townsend will “begin to fulfill its responsibilities in Operation Inherent Resolve in August or September and is likely to monitor the operation to take Iraq’s Mosul.”

As noted by the publication, at present, Mosul remains the main stronghold of the terrorist group in Iraq, and the operation to free it promises to be a central action against the militants of the IG.

          “The new commander should be a veteran of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, Lieutenant General Stephen Townsend,

          I don’t think that after that something will change in the region. So far, all the help of the Americans is to supply weapons to terrorists, without which they would have long been bent, and claims that they will defeat everyone. Remember Palmyra, few in the world, and especially in the United States, they said that the palmyra was taken only because of the actions of Russia. Everywhere in the world they said that Palmyra was taken with the participation of the Allies in the HEAD from the United States, but the Russians only interfered.
          So NOTHING will change there.

      Will the new commander inspire new exploits? As you look at a movie - so cool americos carry it all alone. As it comes to a real war, it's quite the opposite.

      Ducks, as you don’t get in, but you’re not good at fighters. Change the commander of the Daesh with the leader of the fight against Daisha. That one, that the other is suction US.

      Nazi Germany also annealed, the operation was named after Barbarossa in honor of Friedrich Barbarossa. The commander, dressed in heavy armor, who died falling from his horse into the river, was seized by the current and died))

    It is not necessary for Washington to appoint a new commander of the operation against ISIS, but just for Washington it is necessary not to help and not to cover the terrorists with its satellites.

      In general, I read at the beginning that "The Pentagon will appoint a new commander in chief of ISIS." In general, how can you fight against your own brainchild, trained and equipped by yourself? Our helicopter was shot down by American weapons.

    Or maybe they appointed the commander not against, but just ISIS?

    They're changing the hell to hell? See, under the leadership of the fact that the ISIS will leave the nasty war, and the new one will bring both weapons and instructors to "correct the situation"?

    A pastor who violated the visa regime will be sent from Samara. It is reported by Lenta.ru. According to journalists, 73-year-old James Francis Malkakhi married same-sex marriage.

    A police source said that "this person arrived here on a tourist visa and carried out a" wedding "of gay people." Someone complained to the district police officer, he came, checked his documents, met indignation and indignation.

    Francis's lawyer claims that this is a lie and that he did not carry out any weddings in Russia.

    “He was detained by police officers and drafted a report under Article Part 2 of Art. 18.8 Administrative Code of the Russian Federation. That is, in violation of the tourist visa regime, he was engaged in missionary activity and thereby violated the law on the “legal status of foreign citizens in the Russian Federation,” said the detainee’s lawyer Karina Harutyunyan.

    By decision of the Sovetsky District Court of Samara, the pastor must leave Russia within five days. He will also face a fine of two thousand rubles.

    By order of the US Secretary of Defense on October 23.10.2015, XNUMX, Lieutenant General Sean McFarland was appointed commander of operations against the Islamic State terrorist group in Syria and Iraq. Has anything changed during this time? No! The sum does not change from the rearrangement of the places of the terms!

    System. The key word is the system. The system of training the highest military personnel of the United States is one for all. And does not provide for a variety of opinions and skills. Therefore, whoever replaces someone there - the repeatability (or rather, reproducibility) of the same techniques and methods of warfare is guaranteed. As the outrageous meanness in relation to the allies. They have it in their blood.

    veteran of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan should become the new commander

    The point is to change the commanders if they continue to pursue the same policy not of fighting ISIS, but of its secret support? request fool
    It is necessary to change the reasons for the formation of supranational and national terrorist formations, to eliminate the very possibility of their appearance, and not first to grow, feed, and then portray "the fight against windmills"! sad fool

    The meaning of changing commanders

    The meaning is most likely in the flight of the old commander.
    This is when the Americans withdrew the air cover while the blacks flattened their clientele and their PMCs.
