The facts I'm afraid are very clear. There is no "VICTORY" in Syria. I told you all that a long time ago, and it is correct.

Syria is broken for a very long time, and isolated from the rest of the world as a pariah State. The world is with the Coalition I am afraid, not with Syria or Russia. That is the VICTORY in my opinion. But a despot like Assad cares not, apart from his throne in the lush Presidential Palace. There is only one exit for Syria, and that is transition of power under UN Auspices until a New Government is elected fairly.

But there is no use arguing with idiots.

I actually got a lot on my plate at the moment and talking with idiots is a complete waste of my time.

I thought your post was a one off ..... to presumably re affirm your impeccable reputation to always get the wrong end of the stick ? As always you are out of step with reality! :roll: :wink:

General, you have NEVER been right on Syria right from the start you have been varying and burning a load of crap. Assad will remain as the only leader that can bring about peace and stability to Syria. All the bullshit you gave us about your this and your that was just plain scata
Grow up will you.

See what happens when you argue with children. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Oh dear Miltiades. It sounds like you are saying, "Assad is going to remain in power so nah nah ne nah nah"! Do please act your age!

And now for the reality check. If Assad remains in power, he will preside over a ruined and destroyed Hermit Kingdom with no future or prospects. Virtually no trade, no investment, no international engagement apart from the usual 3 or 4 countries, and limited diplomatic links.

I will give you an example. A Syrian Registered Aircraft will not be able to fly on any International Routes to other countries. Syrian Shipping will be precluded from entering the Ports of any EU country and not only.

The only way in and out of Syria will be through Lebanon (Beirut). Sound familiar to you? It sound like the "TRNC" right? OH GOSH! Who would have thought hey!

That is because everyone is with the Coalition on this one. Assad doesn't have many friends other than Lebanon, Iran, Russia and possibly maybe China, although the Chinese economy is hostage to Western Commodities. The Coalition has the backing of the EU and NATO and dozens of other countries around the world.

I go back to Cyprus as an example. Syrian aircraft will not be allowed to enter Cypriot Airspace or land at Larnaca or Paphos. Syrian ships will no longer be allowed to enter Cyprus. How you ask? Cyprus is Sovereign and can let anyone in.

Well, Cyprus has great relations with most EU countries does it not? It is an EU member is it not? It is especially close with France is it not? FRANCE! Coalition Power! So Cyprus will do as its told or suffer consequence. That's how it works. You want to be friends with the French and the Germans, then you do what they tell you because they don't have to be friends with YOU and they don't need YOU! We are about the size of a medium French provincial town to them.

There will be no more State visits from Assad. You think the Americans do not know what Christofias tried to pull and then mock him for his utter stupidity for blowing up the island's biggest power plant? Katourisan bano tous i Amerikani! No disrespect intended to the poor Cypriot victims and their families of this preventable tragedy.

They know what Christofias tried to pull, with almost legendary and unheard of incompetence it would make a great Hollywood and Sony Pictures satire, and you can be thankful they didn't punish us for it. But if it continues, punish us they will. They will punish us through the EU, through France and Germany and you might one day see direct flights to occupied Cyprus under the guise of ending the isolation of the Turkish Cypriots making the Americans and the EU look like your regular good guys again.

Anyway, as I said, I have had my say and my position should be very clear to everyone of you by now. War criminals, must have their day in The Hague.

I could not resist the "neh na ne nah na" from Miltiades.

I am a very busy person at this point and that isn't gonna change for the next 2 to 6 years. Got a lot of things happening to probably beyond my breaking point but I got to put my head down for a while. There just isn't enough hours in the day and I haven't had a day off in a while and I even doubt I will have any time for a vacation either, even though I feel I need one. Partner and children will of course and are currently in Dubai and soon on their way to Cyprus, and then Greece.

I really can't afford to be discussing these matters with unreasoning people who really have no clue and also put words in my mouth that were never said.

What I said is that there is no victory in Syria. And this is a FACT. There is no victory. What is claimed as a victory in Syria is just the defeat of ISIL, which the Coalition is spearheading more than anyone else.

There can only be a diplomatic solution to the Syria Problem. I also said that, and that is also TRUE. With no diplomatic solution for the Syrian People, what you call a victory is extremely hollow and playing with semantics. No sensible person can see a comprehensive victory in Syria unless you oversimplify it by saying Assad will remain in power so nah na neh na nah like we just saw from immature Miltiades and hoodwinked. Remain in power to what cost to Syria? That is what you should ask yourselves. The Coalition and the Western World has the ability to completely isolate and marginalize Syria to a Hermit Kingdom similar to North Korea. Yeh some victory.

So I will have to leave you with those thoughts. It seems that you are all clasping at straws here so I will leave you to it! Adios Amigos!

Do you really think that because the US and its puppets don't like or want Assad as President of Syria, they can implement the actions you seem to think they will, such as a land, sea and air blockade ? Do you think the Russians/Chinese would accept such nonsense? Try and stick to reality! This is what you would like to see happen and but as usual you have provided nothing to link your fantasises to the real world. :lol:

The country may have been greatly damaged but the Russians, Iranians and the Chines have already started a rebuilding programme in some areas and directly Assad waves his cheque book, European countries will rush to grab as many lucrative contract's as they can ...... but I fear they will not be very successful. :roll: :lol: :lol:

Just finished watching it too.

This also explains why Israel is so intent in destroying any arms they think could end up with Hezbollah. These guys now have REAL battlefield experience, where as the Israeli's only have experience in attacking 'enemies' they know have no capability to fight back, like teenage boys with sling shots or just throwing stones at tanks and APC's.

Assad has said he will recover ALL of occupied Syria ...... one can only assume he means the Golan Heights as well? Now that really does worry the Israeli's. Hezbollah have twice engaged with Israel and even with inferior weapons they were not defeated by Israel ..... quite the reverse. Give Hezbollah/SAA the means to take out Israel's air superiority and I think Hezbollah, the Syrian Army and of course Iran (if they were involved) would make mince meat of the IDF!

Only my opinion of course. :roll: :wink:
