The Pentagon has transferred heavy armored vehicles to the area of ​​the new Russian base in Syria


Operation Unwavering Determination by the United States and its allies has been going on in Syria since August 2014 without a UN mandate or the consent of Damascus. On September 18, 2020, the Pentagon, represented by US Central Command, undertook a series of actions in northeastern Syria "to provide continuous force protection for its military personnel and coalition partners." This is stated in the official Twitter account of CENTCOM.


Three weeks after incident between the Russian and American military in Syria, heavy US armored vehicles began to arrive on Syrian soil. Then, as a result of touching the International MaxxPro armored car, four American servicemen were injured. Now the Americans have transferred their M2A2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles to Syria.

At the same time, the United States sent mobile radar detecting air targets of the Sentinel family to northeastern Syria, which are used in the interests of the air defense of the ground forces. In addition, they increased the frequency of U.S. Air Force fighters and involved their attack helicopters to escort the ground patrols.

Note that the Americans officially explain this by their firm desire to quickly defeat the remaining ISIS militants (an organization banned in Russia). However, in those places, ISIS was not initially observed, since the Kurds live compactly on this land. But on this territory there is a lot of oil, which, in fact, caused the main interest of the United States in this area, as well as appeared a Russian military base, which is at the very center of the American presence in this region of Syria.

The Russians, invited by the official Damascus, have created their new military base in a strategically important place - near the city of Al-Malikiya in the province of Al-Hasakah. The Americans consider this territory their fiefdom and have surrounded the object with checkpoints, and now they are pulling together armored vehicles and aircraft.

      And what size should the district be fortified?
      Our heavy armored vehicles are located in the fortified area of ​​Khmeimim.
      If we have the opportunity and need for a new base, then it will appear.
      Soldiers do not wear sundresses, neither in summer nor in winter - take a closer look, they are ready to surprise Americans, not only in Syria, but also in America - and this is exactly what we have - as always ...

        And what size should the district be fortified?

        -I have already written twenty times personally that ... what ... what:
        -The Russian fortified area in Syria should be created at the level of the entire Russian military district ... -with a whole system of military and civil communications; with powerful repair and technical bases; underground communications, arsenals, warehouses, huge military warehouses and storages ... -ammunition, fuels and lubricants, medicines, food supplies, military and special ammunition, etc., etc. reserve ... -On the territory should be created factories-enterprises for the manufacture and repair of various kinds of spare parts and all kinds of components for military and construction equipment ...; as well as enterprises that are ready to process "local hydrocarbons" to obtain various types of fuel "right on the ground" ... - Personally, I still don't know ... - why all our auto equipment, autonomous diesel stations and other mechanisms are refueled in Syria , including ... -providing electric energy ... -To carry fuel and lubricants from Russia ... -is terribly expensive ...
        -All this fortified area can be covered by railway communication (or a narrow-gauge railway ... -And a whole unified air defense system was created; constantly supported by satellite communications and receiving data from a functioning intelligence service (UAV and videoconferencing data) ...
        -With such a fortified region, Russia would simply become the master of the situation in the Middle East and North Africa, where events are already unfolding today ... -And those weak, poorly protected military bases of Khmeimim and ... are very weak arguments for the Arab and the African world; all the more so if the state is far from its support bases and access to them can be easily interrupted ...

          For example, did this happen in the GDR?
          The Americans do not crawl out of their bases in Afghanistan, they do not care that there is a massacre around, what they need, they control, and they are reckoned with, not because there is incredible power in the bases, but because they are there.
          Sorry for Syria, but these are their problems. Who helped drive out the invaders from our land? Tajiks - so they were us, until they lied to us that this was not so.
          Nuclear complexes stand behind weak arguments, and this is not perceived not by the Arab and African world, but for some reason you. I know - a Russian soldier is not one hundred foreign ones, there are a lot of examples, and if this were not so, then the unprotected base would have been razed to the ground a long time ago, there are too many people who want to, but they have something like that, although they puff adversaries ...

            -It also helped ... - and not only in the GDR; but also in Romania, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and in Cuba and Vietnam, etc.

            -In the film "Outpost" (even though it is a feature film) the Americans themselves showed ... -how and what they "control" there ... -Literally they are there "on the bird's rights" ... -It is advised to watch ...

            Wonders... .

            - It is commendable, private. That you think so and that you are sure of this ... - But this is not enough ... - We must do this and do ...
            -What has been done in real life in response ???
            - Our Su-24 was shot down ... - What is the answer ???
            - Killed by the ambassador ... - What is the answer ???
            - More than a dozen of our servicemen have been killed (including high-ranking officers ... - generals and colonels) ... what is the answer ???
            - Yes, even all the same Americans (without losses on their part) laid almost two companies of our "Wagnerians" ... - They were responsible for this ???
            - And this is in Syria, where Russia has been for more than five years ... - And what kind of curtsies does Russia make to Turkey; and Turkey in general got into Syria after ... Russia had already fought there for several years and after ... it shot down our plane ... -And the Americans easily entered Syria ... -And Turkey and the Americans occupied all oil and gas fields in Syria; for which Russia has already fought (helped them) together with the Syrians for several years; but it never achieved anything ... - And Russia did not even take advantage of the moment (fig with this Syria) and did not create a powerful naval base in Syria and fortify the area on the territory in order to influence the policy in that region ... in general. ..
            -Wonders...
            -Here they are real "miracles" ...
            - And then Libya ... - And .. if Russia does not establish itself there (this is where it would be useful to fortify the region) at least on a par with all the suffering "; then Russia will have to leave Syria too ... - Even Assad began to kick up" ... And no olive oil "will save the situation in Russia ...

              I still don’t understand how the Syrian fortified region could have prevented the assassination of the ambassador in Turkey, or in other cases you cited, because in Khmeimim, our soldiers are not killed, although they are trying. And from the fortified. the district must "go out", the set goals must be fulfilled, achieved.
              Russia has already saved its people from genocide once, for example the Georgians, who have repeatedly asked to join Russia by joining Russia, and the gratitude of the descendants of those Georgians is unlikely to differ from the Syrian one. A person does not appreciate what others do for him. Therefore, how Syria will pay off its debts is its headache. Let Syria itself seek good relations with Turkey, America, Israel. We ourselves are trying to improve relations with these countries, although we are putting a spoke in our wheels. We in Russia need to improve, strengthen, develop, and solve in Syria the tasks that are important to us. Struggle for Syrian oil money, olive money - has anyone voiced it as a goal, a task?
              10 aircraft, a year of active bombing and the state, even if the terrorist as a current one is gone. Everyone saw this, the authority of the Russian military force was raised, so Russia's opinion is already taken into account. And not only in Syria, Libya but also in any other conflicts. The bombing of Yugoslavia in modern realities would hardly be possible.

              "It is not necessary to cave in under the changing world, let it be better to cave in under us."

              is the American position.

              Then she took up the farm.
              I got used to it and became happy.
              A habit is given to us from above -
              she is a substitute for happiness.


              - this is the Russian traditional position.

              We adapt to everything, and value diversity, so let Assad kick as much as he wants, we will not threaten him with death, like Trump. And this helped us to save ourselves, survive and get along for hundreds of years. Yes, sometimes you want to punch the arrogant provocateurs with the old quick method, but the power in your hands is such that it can destroy everyone, so we don't sit still - we are developing, for example, Russia saw how the enemy uses the power of soft power, and also starts it very successfully use...
              You want more than there is, it may be good, but the fact that you do not appreciate what you already have is bad.

              I close my eyes, I will forget the insults
              I will forgive all that is possible, and all that is not,
              But never to others, here's a cross for you, I will not,
              If something is wrong, you will forgive me ...

                - No, private ... -very bad, private ...
                - Alas, the opposite is true ... - the weight of Russia's opinion is melting right before our eyes ... - like ice cream ... - One Turkey ate so much of this melted ice cream; that many (even Assad) suddenly decided that Russia should treat everyone to ice cream - for nothing ... - And even Russia itself was put in this position; they say ... -and where will you go with your melted ice cream ... -who will need this ice cream of yours when it spreads ... -so ... -Let's distribute it, but quickly ... -here Russia and rushes with a tray and ... and serves everyone ...
                - What a "weight of opinion" here ...

                - As for the Americans, then they have already ceased to consider themselves supermen ...
                -You haven't seen the American film "Outpost"; and in this film, the military Americans themselves, with their tail between their legs, are forced to go to the Afghan elders and try to persuade them to restrain their bandits ... -and give them money, bribe them ... -but they still attack them later. ..
                -And the Americans themselves are sitting at this outpost of theirs (it is in the gorge and the Afghans can see everything from above at a glance ... - almost like our base in Khmeimim) ... and they don’t seem to be beyond this base ...

                    - Meanwhile, Israel itself created a real military camp out of its state, where in the literal sense of the word ... - the population sleeps ... "with a pistol under the pillow"; and the entire zone is militarized and men and women are called up "under arms" ... - And Israel itself is under an "iron cap" ... that is ... - a dome ...
                    -So ... -And why such expenses and troubles ???
                    -Well, that would take Israel and after all the wars and dismiss his entire army ... -And leave the self-defense troops and border guards ... -and that's it ...
                    - Well, I would buy Israel for its defense ... two aviation regiments ... - "Mirages" and "F-16"; yes, I would also buy a tank battalion in addition ... -and that's all ... enough ... to defend ... from extremists ... -To fight off extremists, that's quite enough ...
                    - But no ... - Israel "armed to the teeth" ...
                    - Otherwise, different "Ishilovites" and "Hezbollahs" (or whatever they are) would have easily rolled into his territory in jeeps with machine guns ... -And there would have been "legs and horns" from Israel ...
                    -And Russia has been fighting in Syria for more than five years and with the same weak forces ... -And only recently they began to build up their military presence (apparently they heard me ... -Hahah) .... -Yes, they realized something a little late. .. -all "vacancies are already taken" ...
                    -Russia came before everyone else and flapped everything ... - that's what it means to have no military striking power (fortified area) in Syria ...

            - Naivety has never prevented you from doing great things and yet ... - working miracles ...
            - Once H. Wells called Lenin "the Kremlin romantic" (most likely Wells simply did not dare to make more "radical comparisons"); but H. Wells himself turned out to be "naive" ...
            -With regard to money; then Russia has already flown in with such money in Syria that it could already build several such fortified areas ... -And all Syrian oil and other Syrian hydrocarbons would have long been under Rosneft and the Syrian borders would not have been violated by either the Turks or the Americans ... - they (Americans and Turks) ... - they simply would never have entered the territory of Syria with a "friendly visit" ....
            - The whole trouble with Russia is that it went "on safari" against predatory animals with only "bird traps" and miserable cages for sparrows ... - instead of guns and "wolf traps" ... - And so far Russia has been for several years helped the weak army of the Syrians to fight against the bandits and grind tons of sand from the air (it would be better if Russia would have dug huge pits in this sand with this explosives for underground fortifications and communications of the future fortification of the region and launched a large-scale construction of real strongholds and military facilities); then the Turks and the Americans realized that Russia was going to continue to "trick" with the help of its few aerospace forces and that the rather weak military presence of Russia in Syria opened up huge prospects for them ... -and that you can do whatever you want in Syria .. - Russia is still unable to resist ... - Here they (Americans and Turks) and captured all the fat pieces of impoverished Syria; and Russia was left with its ability to continue ... -grind the sands of Syria from the air; which she did and continues to do for many years ...

            where is the money, zing?

            -so that the money that Russia has already spent (buried in the Syrian sand) "for everything about everything" in Syria would be enough for the construction of several fortified areas ... -And how much more will have to be spent ...; to plant, grow and cultivate "olive plantations" in Syria ...
            - Here somehow we already talked about the supply of olive oil to Russia from Syria (there is no oil ... - so we will switch to olives) ... - that's for sure ... - it's completely naive ...

              The Russian leadership, in my opinion, instead of spending considerable forces and resources to support the bloody dictator, the executioner of his own country, could use them for the benefit of his people, improving their welfare, health care, education and pensions for citizens of the Russian Federation.
              And to complain about the fact that little money was buried in the Syrian sands and few Russian citizens returned home with a load of 200 I consider it to be a fundamentally wrong position.

            - With regard to Syria; then with the money that has already been spent in Syria ... Russia could have built not only fortified the region, but also a powerful naval base ...

            "where is Zin's money?"

            - Russia can even afford not only rearmament; but also throwing away "money down the drain" ... - for the construction of underwater pipelines (thousands of kilometers) and the construction of cosmodromes that do not function, but serve as a place of space plundering ... -Here, even excluding "this money", plundered and put on wind ... - in addition to all this, there is a huge mass of "untapped money" in Russia ...

          How do you imagine that? Where to get only concrete, cement and reinforcement? It will be too expensive to transport from the Russian Federation, and in Syria itself, the construction of materials themselves are not enough to restore the destroyed country.

            - You ... apparently this morning flew from the moon (where you stayed all the time) ... Personally, I'm already tired of explaining ...
            - Yes, Russia could deliver anything to Syria by ships and barges (in giant holds) in a few months ... - from construction equipment and all kinds of mechanisms (mini-factories for the production of asphalt and concrete) ... - to any building material. .. -In Syria there is so much sand all around ... -the "main building material" that it is not necessary to acquire it ... -Yes, even to build an oil refinery from local hydrocarbons (factories for the production of gasoline, diesel fuel and lubricants) on the ground ...
            - And all this could be started by sea, by water ... - by ships ... - everything is much cheaper ... - And now they are trying to deliver all this by air ... - You can carry it for a hundred years ...
            -And here you answer ... -Where does Russia take fuel and lubricants for refueling all its equipment; for substations; for diesel generators, etc. ??? -Where does all this come from ??? - By air ... - Prices ... just space ...
            -And it was possible to create everything a long time ago and at times cheaper ...
            - Once the USSR built the Aswan High Dam ... - the largest complex hydraulic engineering system of structures in Egypt on the Nile River ... - it was almost 60 years ago ... - That was something !!!!!!!!!
            -And in Syria, it was already possible to build more than one district fortified ... -Yes, and local residents are widely attracted for work ... -And the work of people very close ... -Maybe many of the locals and "bandits" would not go. .. -a would go "to the builders" ... -Hahah ...
