SIXTH POST – OCTOBER 1, 2012 – NATO WAR OF ATTRITION IN SYRIA; IRAN AND RUSSIA COMMITTED TO DENYING NATO SUCCESS.
Two weeks ago, it was clear that the Syrian army had deracinated the Islamist terrorists from the soil of Aleppo. Areas of the city which became a part of the lexicon of war like those of Iraq, Falluja, Sadr City, Takrit, inter alia, were systematically and brutally cleansed of the simian waste that targeted the vitality of this ancient hub of commerce and cauldron of human energy. But, just as our troops left the city, the vermin came back to subject the citizens to another round of horror. As I write, the following battles are being fought with numbers of terrorists now exceeding 9,000! That’s right, Erdoghan’s eviction of thousands of Yemeni, Libyan, Tunisian and Chechen murderers has resulted in an influx of their numbers – concentrating, as always in older areas toward the center where tanks and armored vehicles cannot venture.
My sources in Aleppo have been cut off as the Syrian high command has reinstated an electronic barrier to prevent the murderers from communicating with the outside. Yesterday, my wife’s Facebook interface with her nephew in the Sulaymaniyya District was cut after only two sentences. Needless to say, she is concerned about her three nephews, their wives and children and our brother-in-law, their father.
The following news is from Wael in Latakia who stays in direct touch with soldiers in the Fourth Division of the First Army Corps based around Damascus; Monzer who has news coming to him through acquaintances and friends in the Syrian military establishment and today, Hanadi, in Qamishly who communicates with me through her brother, Nouh in Lansing, Michigan. Also in my notes are contacts from Tartous (nothing happening) and hearsay from Ali in Dearborn.
Big fighting around the Maisaloun Hospital in Aleppo. This is a further example of how the U.S.-backed killers are receiving instructions from the CIA, German Intelligence and MI6 in how to destabilize a government through the process of destroying infrastructure. By denying ordinary citizens medical care, the theory goes, people start to lose faith in their government and turn to the revolutionaries who are the cause of the misery to begin with. So the CIA is gambling. But the CIA is losing on this hand. Wael tells me that Syrian citizens of every sect in Syria are now, even more than before, determined to stick it out with Dr. Assad. As he said in Arabic:
يا زياد ألبديل أخرى من أي حكومة تتصورها
“Ziad, the alternative is shittier than any government you can imagine.” And so the war to impose an Islamist reactionary regime over the will of the majority of Syrians goes on.
These are not Syrian terrorists. The man in the center who is wounded is a Libyan criminal surrounded by his foreign pet rats. This photo was taken inside Aleppo two days ago. These rodents have probably been killed.
Wael says that in the Maysaloon area alone, the Syrian army has killed over 500 terrorists. I joked with him about how great this would be for our medical schools – what with all those cadavers to practice surgery and learn anatomy. He didn’t think that was too funny and remarked that soldiers were using furniture to burn the bodies of the foreign mercenaries so that the city would not succumb to any kind of contagion. Syrian deserters are not cremated for reasons having to do with record-keeping. But he says the number of Syrian citizens involved with the FSA is being reduced daily. Deserters are re-deserting and winding up either in refugee camps or in their own villages. As we reported yesterday, a group of officers has deserted the FSA and is trying to negotiate a return to the homeland. The reasons for this appear to be that none had the expectation that the revolt would result in a systemic effort to destroy all Syria. The appearance of Saudi-and-Qatari-funded freaks has also soured many Syrians on this war.
At Hanano, where a military mini-base is located, the Syrian army has held out and repelled at least three attacks by poorly armed savages. The number of terrorists killed or wounded is not known but helicopter gunships are operating in the area. Wael also supported the Syrian government’s denial that any helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft was knocked down by terrorist fire. News of helicopters going down appear to enliven the murderous foreign fighters and gives them hope which is why they listen constantly to Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiyya whose reports are now orchestrated with CIA Psych-ops spooks controlling the flow of information.
Monzer warned me about believing the “tajleet” I’m hearing that the FSA controlling 90% of the city. He says they control nothing but some streets as our security forces hunt them down with the help of the citizenry.
I have to go now because I have to pick up my car. Hanadi’s report about Qamishly will be printed up tomorrow. Sorry.
