FIRST POST – MARCH 16, 2013 – SYRIAN ARMY KO’S RATS IN NORTHERN LEBANON; THE WAR IN SYRIA; RAT-STATS;  GLOBAL NEWS AND PROPAGANDA

IDLIB:

القضاء على إرهابيين في إدلب والرستن

These brave infantrymen are pictured here in Binnish, Idlib Governorate, pursuing Jabhat Al-Nusra-Al-Qaeda rodents.  We wish them good hunting.  


21 rats killed in operations in rural Idlib at Al-Zu’ainiyya, Bazzeet and Umm Al-Ghaar.  Units from the Syrian Third Army and militia from National Defense killed the following identified scum:

Shadi Ahmad Mahfoudh
Baybars Ali Al-Wari’
Adeeb Mahmoud Ramadan 
Khaled Khabbaz
Muhammad Ali Musulmaani
Riyadh Jabroun
Ahmad Abdul-Rahman Makar
‘Udayy Kifaah Rizqallah
Abbas Al-Hilaali
Murad Ahmad Al-Jundi
Labib Mer’i

The remaining 10 carcasses evidence foreign origin.

Battles were fought in Binnish, Al-Nairab near the same boring youth camp, Bakfaloon, Sarmeen (just fully liberated), Kafr Jaales, Saraaqeb and Ma’arat Masreen.  No details but Wael says the numbers are high for rat casualties.  Most terrorists from Al-Qaeda.

At Abu Dhuhour, near the military airport,  Wael says 16 terrorists are confirmed dead.  The SAA also took 10 prisoners from the FSA.

HOMS:

At the constantly restive town of Al-Rastan, the SAA destroyed a command-and-control center linked to British terrorist-enablers and war criminals in Turkey.  The terrorists killed in this battle were all foreigners.  Wael is unable to get me the names at this time.  He says that Turks and Chechens were in the nest of rodents.

At Maheen East, the SAA and alert security agents aborted an attempt to blow up the oil pipeline which serves the civilians of Syria.  2 miserable feral pigs were killed:

Adnan Ali Qarmashli
Waleed Muhammad Baddour

DAMASCUS:

تفكيك عشرات العبوات الناسفة وإعادة الأمان إلى بعض أحياء جوبر بريف دمشق

SAA hammers the Al-Qaeda criminals at the Parliament Roundabout and Cultural Center in Jawbar.  Over 100 IEDs were uncovered and disarmed by sappers.  Other IEDs armed with 30 kgs of C-4 were found planted around the School Area of the suburb.  Firefights were reported as the terrorists appear to be abandoning their effort to enter Damascus by way of East Jawbar:

Abdul-Rahman Al-Tubji (this is a hilarious name in Lebanese dialect because it means the “passive one in an homosexual relationship)
Ibrahim Khamees Zaydaan
Iyad Abdul-Haadi
“Abu Jalal” (name found on his cellphone)
Talal Rajab
Muhammad Raadhi Sammaan
‘Aateb Ramzi Al-Qishta
Mu’ayyad Ali Hassan Hammadi
Bahaa’ Hussein Al-Rimaawi
Lutfallah Ali
Husaam Nijmeddine Shalhout
Wissaam Muhammad Abu-Shaqra
Muthanna Abdul-Majid Al-Aqrooq
Mahdi Issmat Dawaaleebi

Another 16 were without papers.  3 were taken prisoner and are helping to id the foreigners.

Daarayya:  Consistent with our reporting, sniper holdouts are the rule in this former capital of terrorism:

4 cars armed with 23 mm machine guns were destroyed.  No details on dead rats other than this one:

Aamer Hussein

TARTOUS:

4 Russian battleships are now moored or docked at Tartous for maintenance.  They just left Beirut after a show of force.  They are part of the Russian Baltic Fleet but might be expected to stay a bit longer since one of the ships has highly advanced electronic capabilities.

Try to control your laughter as this lying FSA cockroach sends a message to the Russian fleet with threats. This idiot, whose English is about at first grade level, claims to be in Tartous.  It is almost impossible as that city is heavily surveilled by our security services and any such message would be intercepted.  Try to keep your breakfast down:

http://www.todayonline.com/world/europe/russia-warns-uk-against-arming-syrian-rebels

ANKARA:  A member of the Turkish opposition has filed a bill in Parliament asking the Turkish Security Council to investigate charges that Erdoghan’s Justice and Development Party has provided weapons and training to terrorists operating against Syria.  The bill contains language recommending the establishment of a parliamentary committee to further investigate the matter.  According to the bill,  Erdoghan has provided fake identification papers to Turkish prisoners (a la Saudi Arabia) and released them on condition they fight in Syria with the Muslim Brotherhood.  Families of these Turkish prisoners have filed suit against his government for using their sons as cannon fodder.   

YEMEN:  Fidan Hakan, future indictee for war crimes and crimes against humanity, and head of the MIT, Turkey’s CIA, was in Yemen last month recruiting killers from the Muslim Brotherhood.  According to the Saudi paper “Al-Sharq”, a Yemeni official has confirmed that Turkey is now providing free charter air passage via Turkish Airlines to Hatay where these rats can train in peace.  The Yemeni official says that many have gone now to Turkey.  SyrPer suspects that most of these apes will wind up on the slab at the Tishreen University Medical School for Anatomy 101 or the School of Veterinary Medicine.  

This is Turkey’s answer to Inspector Clouseau, Fidan Hakan.  Boy, he sure looks stealthy, huh?  This piece of Turkish ape excrement will not survive the coup which is coming.

رئيس المخابرات التركية التقى

This heap of garbage from Yemen expects to avoid the anatomy class in Tishreen University.  We think not. Stupid is as stupid looks, we always say.  Those “jambiyyas” will be real useful against our great Syrian army.

RUSSIA:

Putin's Advisor: Russian Security Council Discusses Situation in Syria

We have received reports from Syria indicating Russian President Vladimir Putin is on the verge of making the great leap from arms supplier to combatant in Syria.  We believe the plan is tied to the upcoming in-country maneuvers.  This is it, people.  The NATO wolves have pushed the bear too far.  In the photo seen here for the press, Pres. Putin addresses members of the Security Council.


TERRORISTS CAUGHT LYING ON AL-JAZEERA.  “DANNY THE SYRIAN” WOULD BE PROUD OF THIS HILARIOUS VIDEO:

MAOIST REBEL NEWS SENDS THIS REPORT ABOUT “PISTOL PETE” OBAMA AIDING TERRORISM:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz0TE1Rtx1s

If you’re like me, nothing cheers you up like watching rats being killed by the Syrian Orkin Man.  Here’s a great video of 10 rodents being dispatched in Al-Ghouta area.  What is also funny is how the cameraman gets killed but leaves his apparatus running.  You then get the sounds of rats crying and the usual Allahu Akbar silliness.  Then, our friends close out with the song originally released by Cher:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7J3TxDUcPo 

Another one from the North with over 30 rodents in piles of excrement.  They were killed in an air raid as they huddled together in a safe house.  These are the kinds of tapes used by terrorists propagandists to denigrate the SAA and Dr. Assad.  Note, the dead are all young men.  None are women or children although professional liars like Rami Abdul-Rahman will make that claim:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKclQwz76GI

When we reported last week that the road from Homs to Aleppo had been cleared of terrorists, this is what followed:

GLOBAL COVERAGE AND PROPAGANDA:

Extremely important article from our friend, Christof Lehmann.  A must-read for those watching President Putin:

http://nsnbc.me/2013/03/16/russian-security-council-emergency-meeting-as-russian-warships-arrive-in-syria/

It appears the Russian warning to take this matter before the International Court of Criminal Justice has cowed Cameron and Hollande.  “Backfire”?  That’s it?

http://counterpsyops.com/2013/03/16/uk-admits-syria-policy-backfiring/#comment-17222

And Obama keeps droning on and on.  You’ll love the photo of Obama dreamily sending off lethal drones to kill anything and everything a thug could want.  Of course, this will be a war crime:

http://www.worldbulletin.net/?aType=haber&ArticleID=104821

Finally, huh?  The Lebs are getting the message that a policy of “disassociation” doesn’t mean you disassociate from your own sovereignty:

http://english.al-akhbar.com/content/lebanons-president-dont-send-fighters-syria

This article in Arabic from Syria Scope reports the arrival of tons of oil from a friendly country at the Banias oil refinery.  Great news.  Good show.  The friendly country might be Venezuela:

http://syriascope.net/%D8%B3%D9%88%D8%B1%D9%8A%D8%A9/%D8%A3%D8%AE%D8%A8%D8%A7%D8%B1-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D8%AD%D9%84%D9%8A%D8%A9/%D8%A7%D9%82%D8%AA%D8%B5%D8%A7%D8%AF-%D8%B3%D9%88%D8%B1%D9%8A%D8%A7/item/2666-145-%D8%A3%D9%84%D9%81-%D8%B7%D9%86-%D9%86%D9%81%D8%B7-%C2%AB%D8%B5%D8%AF%D9%8A%D9%82%C2%BB-%D9%8A%D9%8F%D9%81%D8%B1%D8%BA-%D9%81%D9%8A-%D8%B3%D9%88%D8%B1%D9%8A%D8%A7

Gosh! I’d like to have a Jamaran 2 destroyer for our navy in Syria.  Might be useful to blow up that German Shpionboot off the coast of Turkey:

http://en.trend.az/news/politics/2130174.html

If you read Turkish, you’ll be shocked to find out Turkish procurors are hunting down Syrian girls in Sanliurfa, Turkey:

http://www.hurriyet.com.tr/gundem/22818807.asp

More great stuff from Christof Lehmann about dividing Syrian into Islamist mini-states and Russian rage over the issue:

http://nsnbc.me/2013/03/14/permafrost-russian-foreign-minister-lavrov-blasts-usa-and-allies-for-arming-syrian-opposition/

More laughs a minute in this one with shabby looking rats firing on a SAA base near Saraqeb in Idlib Governorate.  An Ennio Morricone theme closes this one out.  Note also, that two of the FSA rodents have been identified as deserters:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AV-asjRLoxo

John Esq. sends this article from the Tehran Times about Russia’s stubborn loyalty to Syria:

http://tehrantimes.com/opinion/104300-why-syria-matters-for-russia

Another video from John showcases the concept that a blow against Syria or Iran would be viewed by Moscow as a blow against it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxep6sF8M0c&feature=youtu.be

John Esq. sends this narrative explaining his view of arming the terrorist mercenaries:

Ziad,

I see where the Arab League is about to recognize the Syrian opposition (which one?!)  Russia has warned the League that this will legitimize sending arms to the rats and ‘counseled’ them against such a move. Britain and Frnace are talking about supplying light armored vehicles and other accoutrements of a conventional army. I predict this will be a huge mistake for the west and their pet rats.

The more sophisticated the weaponry, the less able they will be to incorporate, maintain and use it properly.  Don’t forget the video of rat blowing himself up with a simple RPG. Also, to the extent that they pick up things like light armored vehicles this will also work against them. Their forte is stealth (slithering snakes) and furtiveness. They will not be difficult to spot in light armored vehicles, (especially by Mig fighters) and will be even more easily dispatched in larger numbers since they will be gathered together in these tin cans ready for delivery by the dozens to a flaming eternity!

I default to my original view that no amount of arms will turn this for the demi-morons who have to receive, transport, maintain and utilize the weaponry.

John sends this one too about Haitham Al-Manna’ and his group in Moscow.  Some interesting statistics concerning Dr. Assad’s popularity.  But that would never concern war criminals like Obama, inter alia:

http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2013/03/14/looking-for-way-out-of-syrian-crisis.html

Lew Rockwell weighs in on Assad’s popularity and NATO’s fecklessness:

http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/133901.html

Tragic narrative for Iraq.  The U.S. and the U.K. just don’t get it:

JOKES FOR THE WEEK:

This one is from Tony Papalas on the occasion of St. Patrick’s Day. No, he’s not Irish.  He’s Greek:

You have to Love the Irish

Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn’t find a parking place.   Looking up to heaven he said, ‘Lord take pity on me.   If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey!’


Miraculously, a parking place appeared.


Paddy looked up again and said, ‘Never mind, I found one.’

Hello Ziad. I love your blog. Keep up that good work.Your daily blog is a must read for me. I have one question to you: In the last days, some western media claimed that Syria has lost lots of soldiers – I don’t believe their propaganda. They propagated that Syria has only approximately 100.000 soldiers (or even 50.000) in Syrian Arab Army (SAA). You once mentioned in one of your comments the real number of soldiers – unfortunately I can’t find it. What is the real number of soldiers in SAA? Also: What about the pro-government militia? Can you also… Read more »

The Syrian army is in excess of 375,000 soldiers with a 500,000 reserve force. The Institute for Strategic Studies can give you a very good idea about how large our army is. Mit Freundlichen Grussen von deiner Ziad

The syrian arab army is a force 200,000 strong. I think I read that in Wikipedia. The militias & paramilitary’s should be another 200,000. I could be wrong. But the irregular men at arms are serious players in this conflict. So if it’s a war of national liberation then you could be looking at an armed force of almost 1 million people, if as per what I have seen the women are also lining up to fight. Lets say I’ve over counted the amount. Lets the amount is cut in half. That’s still 500,000 dedicated fighters on the side of… Read more »

The Syrian army is over 375,000. Wikipedia is what it is. With a reserve force of 500,00 and a militia backing it at over 100,000 with new graduates, we have a very powerful fighting force. Check the ISS for better info than Wikipedia.

Kitson’s rule of thumb: “the number of troops required to control a given situation goes up as the amount of force which it is politically acceptable for them to use goes down”. Richard Clutterbuck, in discussing the Malaysian Emergency: “The prediclection of some army officers for major operations seems incurable”. Deane-Drummond observed the following: “The change in role for conventional military operations to internal security and para-military duties is neither rapid nor easy. Intense and time consuming periods of training are required to prepare troops tactically and psychologically for a role which although less lethal in terms of overall casualties… Read more »

They have already started humanizing the opposition with doting media specials showing thoughtful local opposition leaders training their local men about being civilized, showing a kinder, fatherly face guiding and raising the young “activists” how to play better. Also, love and marriage are new themes, not to mention taking the youngest and best looking, filming them horseplaying with one another like school children at recess. This is merely for Western viewers to glaze over and swallow the official narrative. Regarding the Syrian people, I don’t think the West cares whether they are accepted or not. Let me restate, they absolutely… Read more »

Richard,

All that would have been true 30 years ago. The situation today is different. The West/Zionists are not trying to put in a friendly regime; they want the destruction of the country, and a replacement by mini-states that are simply criminal gangs. So we may see that direct intervention. It seems likely that they also want to break up other countries.

I just got two very discouraging responses. I. Believe you are correct in your assessments, concerning the plan to “Balkanize” Syria. I have rarely witnessed propaganda as vicious, and as departed from reality as I see/hear every day in this conflict (Libya was as bad). The stakes are obviously much higher in this conflict. If Syria falls, it will be a disaster of unimaginable consequences. NATO/US West…the powers behind this…they are nothing if they are not ambitious. It’s a huge defeat if Syria prevails. The key really is Russia/china/Iran reaction.

Forgot to mention: There was an L.A times “leak” regarding the CIA targeting extremists in Syria via drone strikes. One can then say, well, the U.S really isn’t supporting the extremists and are supporting the good FSA, which are moderate and democratically leaning. This is a smokescreen to mask US active support of extremists with a plan of destruction. These strikes will never happen against their own cannon fodder, rather SAA assets would most likely be hit, if used at all. What a clever “leak” to prop up the “good guys” meme. This story is to put the more aware… Read more »

Excellent. I agree. With the propaganda war, they have come as close as possible to getting these bozos some legitimacy. The only problem is that 80% of the people view them as either Western stooges or stooges of the Arabian apes. It’s not going to work for the U.S. ZAF

Ziad, History was made this week and the world has changed in a major way. http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2013/3/16_Sinclair_-_One_Of_The_Most_Important_Events_In_History_%26_Gold.html The Cypriot bank crisis has triggered major issue with Russia. The IMF is arbitrarily confiscating 10% of all depositors monies as a “tax” to offset the horrific loses incurred by the greedy and inept bank management itself. In effect, they are confiscating the Russian elites’ (former KGB)wealth, as Cyprus is where much of Russia’s hot money went. This is probably one of the tools the west is employing to stick it to the Russian elite and it will backfire in a massive way. Hyperinflation… Read more »

No. Maybe Ziad has? But in general Syrian Army handle those numbers as secret. I know that many thousends soldiers are in and around homs. But also some thousends rebels are in and around homs. Hard battles with many deaths on both sides. As know the offensive against rebel held parts in homs failed. Despite overwhelming fire power, artillery, air force, tanks, mortars, no break through was reached until now. And many soldiers were killed when invading the rebel quarters. But also many rebels.
