"We will defend": the Pentagon issued a warning to Russia after the clash in Syria


Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said the United States will take the necessary action to protect its soldiers in the event of any threat to their security in Syria.


We warned the Russian side that the behavior of their servicemen is dangerous. Therefore, if necessary, we will defend ourselves, reserving the right to adequately respond to any aggressive actions of the Russian Federation.

- noted Hoffman in response to skirmish, which happened the other day between American soldiers and a Russian military patrol in Syria near the border with Iraq.

The military official called the behavior of the Russians provocative and unacceptable. He also hoped that both sides would return to routine work in order to prevent armed conflicts in the SAR. According to a representative of the US security department, their military avoids open clashes with Russian military personnel, and the professional actions of the Americans during the last incident deserve every respect.

On Thursday, August 27, the Russian Ministry of Defense, following a telephone conversation between the heads of the general staffs of the Russian Federation and the United States, accused the latter of trying to block a patrol of the Russian military police in Syria and of violating previously reached agreements. In response to the provocations of American soldiers, the Russian military took all the necessary measures to fulfill the tasks assigned to them.

    Is Hegemordor about to defend himself? Bring home, thieves and invaders (then there are two paragraphs of national speech expressions 18+ that are difficult to translate into English)
    Solely to refresh your memory, a look at current events from the Russian-speaking Baltic states: hi

    It's time for Shoigu (not the Foreign Ministry) to explain to Jonathan Hoffman that they are NOBODY in Syria and call them ANYWHERE! And the funny thing is that it had to be done YESTERDAY!

    I still could not understand what these "catch-ups" remind me of. Remembered! Ukrainian boats were also driven in front of the Kerch Strait. The situation, and the emotions of the fighters, and the vocabulary are very similar.

    In other words, the Yankees are going, blocking the roads to patrols of the Russian Federation, to use weapons on them. Well, well, no matter how you have to collect boats from the Arlie Berks sunk in Black. You are striding wide, you will tear your pants.
