Frontline report: Inside Syrian army air base

Syrian pilots prefer to fly Vietnam-era jets and to use some equipment which dates back to the 1960’s but is still more reliable, easier to fly and to maintain than their modern counterparts.

  • Children of The Most High says:

    Hearts and Minds (Vietnam) or winning hearts and minds refers to the strategy and programs used by the governments of South Vietnam and the United States during the Vietnam War to win the popular support of the Vietnamese people and to help defeat the Viet Cong insurgency. Pacification is the more formal term for winning hearts and minds. Military, political, economic, and social means were used to attempt to establish or reestablish South Vietnamese government control over rural areas and people under the influence of the Viet Cong. Some progress was made in the 1967-1971 period by the joint military-civilian organization called CORDS, but the character of the war changed from an insurgency to a conventional war between the armies of South and North Vietnam. North Vietnam won in 1975.

    Pacification or hearts and minds objectives were often in diametric opposition to the strategy of firepower, mobility, and attrition pursued by the U.S. from 1965 to 1968. Rather than the search and destroy strategy the U.S. followed during those years, hearts and minds had the priority of "hold and protect" the rural population and thereby gain its support for the government of South Vietnam.

    Syrian air force and Russian air force bomb terrorists, while the Zionist US kleptocracy and its allies use their planes to airdrop weapons and supplies to terrorists. The US regime also claims to be the global leader in anti-terrorism, liberty, and justice. This is the craziness of today.

  • Springfield8 says:

    Since all the US-backed terrorist groups in Syria have a stone-age ideology, the secular Syrian government would still be 5000 years more advanced if it used WWII planes.
