This is what happens when millions are oppressed and want their rights.

There will no doubt be acts of violence perpetrated by the US backed proxies for some time as, like you demonstrate, they are bad losers and nobody wants their brand of government ..... except the US of course but not in their own back yard! The lives of the Syrian people under Assad, were infinitely better before the US interfered as they also did in Libya, Iraq and Ukraine with an equally devastating result for the peoples.

But these oppressed millions are all fleeing TO the Government controlled areas, surely if you are correct they would be running in the opposite direction? Your terrorists are now queuing up for busses to take them and their families to Idlib. 600,000 displaced civilians and refugees have returned to Aleppo alone since the SAA drove out your terrorists and they are being given assistance by the Syrian government and helped with Russian aid.

How do you explain that away General ? Where is the US and coalition aid ...... or is that restricted to providing military aid to their terrorists? :roll:

BTW: A true master stroke from you ..... if a member posts without actually replying to my post, so they are taking your advice to 'ignore the troll' :lol: :lol: :lol: .......... very few reply to your posts, does the same yardstick apply?

BTW II : my mail box is still empty! :roll:

The Map, the War; tweets included too. Good for a visit. (and the other maps)

...i remind us, this site, its worth.


I spent a bit of time studying the link you provided, and the map looks no less as complicated as an earlier map I have in my possession.

I am just particularly astounded at the amount of land coalition forces have under their control.

It looks as though a Kurdish State is a viable option for the future. God Willing!

I’m a bit time poor sometimes kuru.

But when I look at things I like to compare to other snapshots in time.

It is mostly desert and of course where the oil is! Over 90% of the Syrian population is living in Government Controlled Areas which is more significant. But .... the US will not be there for long.

Not doing too well in Afrin are they? Again a bit of Paphitis style wishful thinking,



A more informed view of the situation from an 'expert' on the subject, although it is almost 6 months old:

The Syrian Government ‘Controls Most of the Population’ October 13, 2017, November 6, 2017 | Aron Lund

As the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) squeeze the last remnants of ISIS forces in Raqqa with U.S.-led coalition support, Syrian government and Iran-backed militia forces are also making gains against ISIS in the Deir al Zour region in eastern Syria. With ISIS nearing the end of its rope in Syria, eyes turn to what the end-state of the country’s civil war will look like.

The Cipher Brief’s Fritz Lodge spoke to Aron Lund early this week about how the de-confliction zones of the Russia-led Astana process allow the Assad regime to choose its battles.

Oh btw Kuru, I first mentioned the Kurdish State right here in 2015 when we were supplying the Kurds with our C17 Globemasters.

I'm not sure if that is what you mean, but I have been hoping for the formation of a Western Alliance with the Peshmerga, YPK, YPG, and PKK for a very long time. My dreams are coming true. :D

Confirmed: Syrian forces unleash whole salvo of rocket fire onto Turkish Army base in west Aleppo

20/03/2018


BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:39 A.M.) – Earlier reports that Syrian pro-government forces shelled Turkish military positions near the rebel-controlled town of Anadan in Aleppo province’s western countryside have been confirmed.

Following opposition claims, Syrian media itself (namely Syrian Digital Media and Alikhbaria Syria) reported that Syrian forces unleashed at least an entire salvo of Grad rocket fire onto a newly established Turkish Army observation base near Anadan.

It is worth keeping in mind that that a single BM-21 Grad launcher can fire 40 rocket projectiles in about twenty seconds.

Reports still do not clarify which kind of ‘Syrian forces’ attacked the Turkish military camp and, as mentioned earlier, it seems highly unlikely that rocket artillery units of the Syrian Army carried out the bombardment.

Rather it is most likely the case that the rocket attack was conducted by Iranian-backed forces – this bombardment of Turkish Army positions not being first time for such Syrian pro-government paramilitary factions.

The Turkish military presence in northwest Syria is part of de-escalation scheme brokered by Moscow and Ankara aimed at reducing violence across the region. On more than one occasion, Iranian-backed forces have expressed their discontent with the deal, lashing out with artillery attacks.

I would like to see the story filter through from other sources but it is certainly a possibility.

The Video was worth watching. In brief Russia is giving the US a very clear warning ...... attack Damascus and there will be consequences! I noted they also referred to not just taking down their missiles but hitting the launch platform targets as well. Maybe they will demonstrate some of their new weaponry that some believe is just propaganda? :roll: :wink:
