Hello, B0FEE664, you wrote: BFE>>> you think, what rescue of Asada and Syria or struggle against Igilom - overall objectives in Syria for the Kremlin? No, it is the minor purposes. P>> and what main things? Too it is interesting to me BFE> Control of deliveries of gas to Europe. The gas conduit which only reflected and still far not the fact that would once be implemented looks the feeble reason of serious operation. On mine (amateurish and not educated) a sight, the operation purposes in Syria were about such: Primary: 1. Demonstration of current military potential of the Russian Federation 2. Gain of political influence of the Russian Federation in the short-range east Secondary: 3. Saving, and is better solidifying of the military man by the Mediterranean sea and the short-range east 4. Destruction or essential easing 5. Check and tests of systems of the arms especially new 6. Training in actual practice personal, and especially officer, composition to guiding of the modern war Why such purposes? The last years the transfer by the NATO countries, and especially the USA, armies to the boundaries of the Russian Federation, plus campaign in mass-media about the Russian threat generally and "spiteful Putin" in particular was activated that suggests that some military circles in the NATO consider that the Russian Federation can be won immediate war easily. Operation on association of Crimea with disarmament of the Ukrainian bases made impression, but it was no actually military operation. As the Russian Federation at all in serious war and furthermore in the territory, and in universal nuclear destruction too it is not interested it makes sense to show visually to potential opponents that army of the Russian Federation is capable to conduct serious operations, and the direct military conflict manages expensively and it is better to live in peace. Therefore the first and major purpose - demonstration that army in the Russian Federation is capable to solve serious fighting tasks the Second purpose - solidifying of political influence in the short-range east. Region important, both on layout and on petrogas stores. Political influence gives advantages. In particular influence on that what gas conduits where to build and where it is not necessary. Well and the greater influence in one region strengthens the general influence of the country in the world as a whole. Further other - military bases in the short-range east are useful because of layout, and it is useful for gain of political influence. - officially declared war of the Russian Federation and sooner or later would begin support of terrorists in the Russian Federation therefore the before it to destroy, the better. The tasks which performance allows to achieve the given purposes follow from the purposes: 1. The active bombardments , strategically and tactically. Approaches the purposes 1, 4, 5, 6 2. Support of the Syrian terrestrial army, terrestrial instructors and tactical bombardments of opponents. The purposes 1, 4, 5, 6 3. And the same not only about , but also other insurgents in Syria. The purposes 1, 5, 6 4. Diplomatic settlement of disagreements with those insurgents, which . The purpose 2, simplification of the decision of the task 5. 5. Saving of the power at the duly elected president of Syria. The purpose 2, 3. As a matter of fact it is evident demonstration that the union from the Russian Federation it is not simple words, and support which can even transform a hopeless situation into the positive. 6. To apply in fight the diversified means available in an arsenal. The purposes 1, 5, 6. is certainly not savages in desert as some write, but nevertheless to bomb their cruise missiles from the submarine or to send an aircraft carrier with an escort in the presence of terrestrial air base it it is wildly irrational if stupidly to compare the expended money and received fighting effect. But if to consider these steps as means of achievement enumerated above the purposes 1, 5 and 6 - that it , is exceptional effective steps for their achievement turn out. 7. And other tasks, type of constant rotation of frames, support beautiful PR etc.
