United States President Barack Obama is undergoing pressure from U.S. officials about the Syrian crisis. We are talking about projects of some politicians to declare over Syria no-fly zone and to enter the military contingent.
American authorities continue to debate about the format of your own stay in Syria. With all this, many officials insist that the U.S. military role in solving the crisis should be increased. The white house as first skeptical of this idea, but the pressure is on him and United States President Barack Obama is increasing - they are urged to take firmer measures.
Speech, in particular, on the introduction of troops into Syria and declaring a no-fly zone over the state or some of its parts, and in entering into the country of the subsidiary of the American contingent. At the meeting, which was attended by the Minister of defence Ashton Carter, were presented sobering assessment of the vast military resources that are needed to ensure such zones, reports The New York Times.
The result suggests the conclusion suspicious of wisdom similar solutions. Also, in a similar case will increase the risk of conflict in the region by Russian and American forces.
Among the options for the creation of "secure zones for the civilian population of Syria", which must, according to the draft of Americans to appear on the borders of Syria with Turkey and Jordan, there were a few different options. On one of them a closed military environment is used for the delivery of humanitarian aid, other, more ambitious - the "security zones" would act as a pretext and a means to support the Syrian "moderate opposition" cooperating with the United States.
But these projects require enormous amounts of aircraft and personnel - more than is already in the region for air strikes on Syria and Iraq. With all this, the President of the United States Barack Obama at the meeting, where they discussed these projects, was not present and did not show willingness to correct his own cautious stance on the Syrian crisis.
Military experts report that to ensure the safety when you declare a no-fly zone impossible without entering into the country spacious ground troops. This proposal also was raised during the discussion. And yet, for all these steps requires support and sometimes a very substantial funding.
But cash on the costs of war, the United States, apparently, not so much. For example, Barack Obama has vetoed a new draft budget on defense. "I'm going to send it back to Congress, and my news is very simple: "let's get this right." We are in the midst of budget discussions. Need a budget that adequately provides both our national and financial safety", - quotes Reuters the American favorite.
The draft budget calls for an increase in military spending for 90 billion dollars, and implies the establishment at 612 billion Obama insists that for normal functioning of the economic system of the country will need a broader budget agreement, provides for a reduction of internal costs, not solely increasing funding of the Pentagon. Military civil servants with far-reaching projects for the deployment of the military in various parts of the world, apparently, disagree.
