US military does not know what to do in case of Russian attack in Syria


The US military contingent left by Donald Trump in Syria to protect oil fields was in an extremely difficult situation.


According to The New York Times, leaving its soldiers to protect the oil fields, the US military forgot to provide him with instructions on what to do in a particular case.

In particular, the American command in Syria does not know what to do if contingent positions are attacked by any of the forces present in the region - Turkey, Russia, Iran, the Syrian government forces or their allies.

US military leaders believe that for US units in Syria, attacks from the above forces are more dangerous than attacks from militants of the Islamic state *.

The publication, referring to its own sources, notes that the contingent command sent a corresponding request to the Pentagon, but in response received only “vague instructions”.

It seems that in the US military, no one wants to take responsibility for Trump’s decision to leave the contingent in Syria in case the regional conflict develops into something more.

Thus, American soldiers in Syria were held hostage by ill-conceived decisions of the US administration, based on the banal desire to "warm their hands" on other people's natural resources.

    The US military should get out of their country and not stick their nose out, otherwise Russia will throw a nuclear bomb (missile) into the crater of Yellowstone and the US will come to an end ...

    It’s interesting, but does the contingent of the RF Armed Forces have similar instructions there in case of a conflict not with barmels, but with regular armies - the same US or Turks? Judging by the fact that the Israelis are doing it with complete impunity, neither ours nor our ...

        ... so they have it ... as far as I understand, that's not what the article is about. The point is the way of influence or response. You can simply repulse the attack, defend, shoot down the rocket - this is the minimum answer, each starley will do it automatically. But this is only "local anesthesia" and it will not help from a serious blow, but on the contrary, you can waste precious time. Or, defending yourself from a local first strike, you can immediately respond with a massive blow to the carriers, bases, and rear areas of the enemy with all available types of weapons, cut supply routes, and launch a counterattack. This is much more effective, but it requires a pre-worked plan or, at least, instructions from high command. And this can, theoretically, lead to a global conflict, including a nuclear one.
        I understand that this is a question.

      in the US military, no one wants to take responsibility

      In Russian, one might think, eager to take responsibility. wassat
      And those, and others have the same methodology, "do not succumb to provocations", otherwise somewhere I would have found a scythe on a stone.

    Somehow stupid ... Of course, you can understand the general, he is more interested in the issue of chairs and pensions ...
    And so everything is clear, the soldiers will fight ... and die.

    The US military does not know what to do in the event of a Russian attack in Syria.

    It's not obligatory. The main thing is to know what to do so that the Russians do not attack: bring down from Syria ahead of their own squeal.

    As they know. The funeral march about the Wagner PMC is proof of this!
