Rope knot tight on the neck of «Daash» in Mosu
Translation - Anis yolk
with the approach of the campaign against «Daash» from entering a new phase even more dangerous, US officials say that military advisers working Americans with thebattalions of the Iraqi army began to move in advanced positions.
Began the first task for them of this kind in the July 20 , when the team tasked small military engineers regiment of the duty to help the Iraqi engineers to secure a temporary bridge built on the Tigris River. The bridge, located to the south - east of the town ofQayyarah, is expected to be an important pivotal point in the next attack on the city ofMosul.
However, American engineers and , in a departure from the Advisory usual role, were serving with the Iraqi regiment certain number of hours just about every day and then withdraw returning to a more defensible location near drunk to spend the night. Now ,nearing the engineering work on completion.
Colonel «Chris Garver» a spokesman for the military coalition led by the United States says: «It was an act of short - term high - yield».
This task precisely defined goal, and distinct lack of field exposure, for example , on thespecific role that the ordained leaders US ground forces in Mosul , the US operations.He says the top leaders: The American advisers will do short visits to the headquarters of the Iraqi regiments, some of which may not exceed few hours, instead of staying among local forces for periods of extended indefinitely.
Ground floor as planned recognition of how difficult the path that should US leaders walk in which to secure the desired Iraqi army support without raising tensions.
this role stems also from a desire to reduce the occurrence of additional casualties among the Americans, even though the three Americans killed in action in Iraq since 2014.
if the Iraqi forces succeeded in breaking the grip of the terrorists on the city lightly and the speed of the it would strengthen the position of the Iraqi prime minister, as he will go down to President Obama 's victory before leaving office. «Douglas Olyphant», who is now the position of senior fellow at the «New America» research firm says that thelimited role for ground troops would allow the Pentagon to achieve a practical balance in Mosul campaign, because the hands of the Americans will stay close to the movement ofevents without sending the Americans to where killed.
in a recent interview said the commander of US and coalition forces in Iraq and Syria, the team «Sean McFarland», that the criteria account for future consulting engagements have will put high limits in the evaluation equation «dangerous compared to gains».
McFarland said: « the more approaching the edges of the front of the battle escalated severity levels, unless there is a sufficient return to justify what we'll deliver, or justified by military necessity likelihood of injury or loss component of our troops, we will not offer ». However, senior officials speak frankly , most in private conversations, they do not Anevkon point reminding the loss of their forces in another spread in Iraq. So they say they're not going to shove the Americans in the furnace of battle unless they see that theentire process at risk.
Planning for the process of Mosul , the latest proof that the US military's war - Atabth became more inclined to curtail his role in the battle against «Daash». Most military leaders at the Pentagon have spent periods of service in Iraq and fought a bloody war after the invasion in 2003.
Although the US Special Operations forces have been unremitting in counseling at a low level for the forces fighting terrorism and the forces of the Kurdish Peshmerga, the recent Qayyarah process signaling for the first time since 2014 to provide troops US advice to the regiments of the Iraqi army in the field.
in the month of April and approved by leaders at the Pentagon on the request made by McFarland to give him a new military authorities in preparation for the battle of Mosul, including advisers put on a level Regiment and the use of strikes helicopters Apache and support ground troops guns authority « Himarss »far - reaching. The artillery and helicopters has already been used but not Aodawa advisers at the level of the regiment ,but this month. US officials expect that the Battle of Mosul will require the development of advisers at a low level because of the size of the city 's capacity and its distance from Baghdad.
While the Pentagon has yet to announce the availability of a timetable for the start of theattack on the city officials are hinting that he may start late next autumn. It is expected then to be an alternative McFarland, the team «Stephen Townsend», is the commander ,who commands US forces in Iraq.
US officials already have told before: The advisers dispatched to the front lines will need to totals great protection accompanied by including different teams to provide medical assistance and evacuation and removal of the bombs planted on roadsides and artillery.
not less than this importance, in terms of security considerations, the desire of US commanders to avoid stirring tensions in the atmosphere already suffering from political Alchahnat. Valebadi, who faces popular claims and wide after a series of bombings that struck Baghdad, is eager to show that Iraqi forces alone able to deliver a decisive blow to the «Daash» in the same city where the army was breaking in 2014. Although the US Air Force and allied has proven effective tool alongside Iraqi troops in Fallujah, Ramadi and other battles the Government of Abadi and insists that the Americans will not have their needs in battle.
US officials are very well care to avoid new frictions with the popular crowd forces ,which was to support a critical role in addressing Iraq's »Daash» and its response to thewake. Even some leaders of these formations took the call from now threatened to take action against US forces or installations if the Americans were seen in battle. * Missy Ryan / for The Washington Post[/rtl]
