The assault of Fallujah

Events in Iraq produce strong impression of deja vu. Yesterday started already the 3rd assault on Fallujah since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Unable to reach decisive progress with the promotion on Mosul, Iraqi commanders with the support of the United States has decided to sharply replay all available forces and threw to the assault of Fallujah, which according to initial plans had to be taken after the capture of Raqqa, Mosul and the Syrian border sweep Anbar province. It is difficult to say what is behind this sudden change of plan – whether Washington was not satisfied with the slow pace of the offensive on Mosul, or desperately need immediate victory. It is believed that the recent visit to Iraq Dunford has been associated with such an abrupt change of the previously announced order of action. Under Fallujah and was formerly a noble chopper and went straight to the last reel of one of the largest cities in Iraq controlled the Caliphate.

The city itself is still under US occupation was badly destroyed, fighting of recent months have brought as many casualties and destruction, must understand that the current street fighting will lead to a repetition of the situation of Ramadi.
According to American data Fallujah garrison of 800 to 2,000 active fighters. Against them thrown about 20 000. The attack leads a motley army composed of regular units of the Iraqi army -. To 10 000 people, a conglomerate of various special forces and police units – up to 8,000 people, the Shiite militia, and other semi-regular form. The security operation involving American advisers and instructors, as well as inclusions of PMCs and US Special Forces. US support to air + provides technical and aerial reconnaissance. Much of the advancing troops trained and armed by the Americans. So despite the fact that formally the offensive are Iraqis, the rate then obviously the US, which essentially laid in such operations, drawn into the war in Iraq even more than Russia in Syria.

Currently there are active battles in the suburbs of the city, and in some areas the troops entered the city limits. After a night bombing of the smoke from the fire is visible for many kilometers from the city. Above the town hangs a bunch of drones, the forefront of the Caliphate handled by tanks and artillery.
Superiority of the enemy in numbers, heavy armored vehicles and aircraft Caliphate can oppose their traditional stubbornness on the defensive infantry, suicide attacks, the defense benefits in residential areas and the remaining partial support of the local population. The city itself is quite heavily fortified – a long monitoring time, “black” ponastavili bunch minefields have concrete fortifications, lots of bunkers and underground tunnels. The bombing by US aircraft even by US estimates caused defensive infrastructure Caliphate only very mild damage (most recent success – bombed a mini-plant for the production of improvised explosive devices). If you focus on the assault Ramadi, then it is unlikely to be enough to hold the entire city, but tighten the resistance for weeks or even months, “Black” are quite capable. Much will depend on the quality control of troops on both sides. Iraqis are clearly trying to suppress “black” strength, the Caliphate except do not have to rely on skill and fanaticism ordinary infantrymen.
Losses on both sides is expected to significantly, and will get to stay in town to civilians. From what is stated – Americans reported that during the night the bombing killed 9 militants Caliphate. Caliphate, in turn, said that east of Fallujah bomber Iraqi soldiers killed 16 people. But judging by the already appeared Personnel fights expense killed probably runs into tens.

International Military Review – Syria & Iraq, May 24, 2016

Iraqi army regains more ground from Daesh terrorists

Kurds starts new offensive to capture northern Raqqa countryside from ISIS

CENTCOM Commander Plots Escalated War in Syria

Obama waged war on Syria for regime change. Washington tolerates no sovereign independent countries.

Longstanding plans call for replacing them all with US vassal states, stealing their resources, exploiting their people.

So-called cessation of hostilities and peace talks in Syria represent willful deception, orchestrated to fail, not succeed. America intends ousting legitimate/overwhelmingly popular Bashar al-Assad forcefully.

Together with rogue NATO and regional allies, it continues arming, training, funding and directing ISIS and other terrorist groups.

US and allied combat troops together with CIA agents and hired gun paramilitaries operate on the ground illegally, aiding terrorist fighters while pretending to oppose them.

General Joseph Votel heads US CENTCOM, in charge of American Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia combat operations – launched against nations threatening no others.

Command operations are a sinkhole of endless US aggression, raping and destroying one country after another – heading toward a potentially cataclysmic showdown with Russia and China.

It’s just a matter of time before these major powers clash militarily. WW III may follow with nuclear weapons able to end life on earth.

Neocons infesting Washington intend almost anything to achieve unchallenged US global dominance. Planet earth’s survival hangs in the balance.

On Friday, Votel secretly and illegally visited Syria, meeting with Kurdish fighters and terrorist groups. Talks involved coordinating US strategy to prevent government forces from taking ISIS stronghold Raqqa – not eliminate their fighters from the area as reported.

Votel expressed confidence in accomplishing US plans, stopping short of explaining America’s goal is ousting Assad, imported death squads used as imperial foot soldiers.

When a senior US general visits a war theater, expect something big to follow. America is aiding ISIS and other terrorist groups, not combatting them.

Diplomats discuss peaceful conflict resolution. Warriors making policy in Washington, Brussels and rogue regional states plan escalated war – endless fighting until Assad is ousted, Syrian sovereignty destroyed.

Russia alone has the power, and hopefully the sustained will, to stop them. The stakes are too great for anything less.
