WHY THE CEASE FIRE? SYRIAN PERSPECTIVE EXPLAINS THE DETAILS

تمديد هدنة الزبداني وبلدتي الفوعة وكفريا حتى صباح السبت المقبل

DAMASCUS AND IDLIB:  Unless you’re some imbecile in England, nobody in his right mind could expect the rodents of Alqaeda to last any more than a few hours in the center of the town of Al-Zabadaani.  In an effort to relieve the pressure on their litter-mates in the Qalamoon, the rodents of Jaysh Al-Fath imposed a blockade on the Christian/Shi’i towns of Al-Faw’ah and Kafrayyaa.  Moreover, many wealthy Sunnis who owned large tracts of land and had substantial investments in the resort town just 45 kms from Damascus also weighed in pressuring the Syrian government to relent on its promise to “exterminate” all the rodents inside Al-Zabadaani. There are only 50-80 rats left and they have been granted temporary permission to leave without any heavy weapons.  The ceasefire also applies to the towns of Buqqeen and Madhaayaa.

For their part, the rats in the northwest have agreed to permit Syrian Army supplies to enter the two Christian/Shi’i towns.  The ceasefire to allow the vermin to evacuate Al-Zabadaani and to permit supplies to enter the Christian/Shi’i towns has been extended to Sunday, based on the last report I received.

 

Al-Faw’ah:  As of 2 days ago, the Popular Defense Committees were able to seize a fully operational T-62 tank from the Jaysh Al-Fath killing all 3 rodents who were atop the vehicle.

Tayyip Gokbilgin (TURK JERK AND BOY BUGGERER)

Naaseef Al-Hajjaan

The third could not be identified.

 

Kafrayyaa:  Confirmed 14 rodents dispatched to Hell on August 11, 2015 when SAA artillery scored direct hits on a convoy of trucks.

 

Note:  The SAA is moving slowly, but, inevitably toward Jisr Al-Shughoor.  Yesterday, new positions were taken by the SAA at the Sugar Factory.

The Syrian Army and its allies are hitting the Jaysh Al-Fath terrorists hard at Tal Waasit, Tal Zajram, Al-‘Ankaawi.

NATO’s 2011 war in Libya has already forced regime change in the North African country, with the West still working on bringing down the Syrian regime. Both countries were listed as enemies of the US by the neoconservative thinktank, the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) in their 2000 report, long before the illegal 2011 war in Libya and the ongoing proxy… Read more »

How frustrating that the wealthy trying to save their summer homes are able to stop the erasing of the last 50 terrorists in the center of Zabadaani! It’s their own fault for building all their summer homes in the tiny center of town still held by a handful of terrorists instead of in the liberated 99% of the town! Why not just drop 1 bomb on the last rodents and be done with it? ” Sorry rich guys, that last bomb just fell out of the helicopter!” Nice to hear about Jisr Al-Shughoor being closer than ever to liberation though!… Read more »

Escalating the Anti-Iran Propaganda – August 13, 2015 Exclusive: The Israel Lobby canceled summer vacations for its operatives in a desperate bid to stop the Iran nuclear deal, and U.S. neoconservatives are committing all their “experts” to the fight to keep alive their hopes for war with Iran, such as alleged weapons specialist David Albright, as Jonathan Marshall explains. By Jonathan Marshall https://consortiumnews.com/2015/08/13/escalating-the-anti-iran-propaganda/ The United States and five other powers that negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran based it on verification, not on trust. The media need to start applying to the same standard rather than trusting the often questionable… Read more »

Christian towns of Al-Faw’ah and Kafrayyaa??

All I’ve heard is that the towns are Shia. Leith wrote the other day: “predominately Shi’i towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya”

According to Leith, some 40 terrorists surrendered yesterday but there are still more than 300 of the vermin entrenched in Zabadani.
Imho, if they refuse to give up, they should be exterminated to the last rat.

Could it be true that after Tunisia restored normal relations with Syria, that Egypt, UAE and Oman have decided among themselfs to do the same and are just waiting for Saudi Arabia to not object to it.

Could it be that Syria actually won and is now giving a face saving exit for the enemies by doing concessions.

What is obvious, is that the Syrian state is still functioning after four years of brutal assault from all sides. This is due to the still operating moral compass of both the people and the Syrian institutions. Their will power is what we cheer on, regardless of the deceptions and propaganda that are necessary in these times. The whole world, which is comprised of a statistical majority of good people, knows what is at stake here. If Syria fails, much like Spain in the 30’s, things will get much worse for many people. The lines are being clearly defined.

American arrogance is what will destroy it. Those of us who have foresight are waiting for the collapse. Although we pay many taxes to support something we despise, many long ago stopped considering ourselves American. It is too shameful. I fear that the gun crowd will be swayed buy a fancy republican president. Much like the progressive crowd was deceived buy democrats over and over again. Once the right believes that the rich are on their side again, they will fall in line and banker war three will be on. America gets to play the bad people this time. All… Read more »

one trusts that the SAA/HZB on the ground and actually there know the score and know what needs to be done to win the day.
It would have been good to have been able to have proclaimed a total victory,including the extermination of the last 50-80- nevertheless this implies perhaps 1800 rats dead and a town liberated – a major victory!!
Keep the faith.

The master of the age is with you, and He will preserve you. I know this is an odd view (not based on scripture) but His presence gives reason to hope. Also you must recall that in 2013 when Obama wanted to bomb Syria, Washington mail to congresscreeps and the White House ran 499-to-1 against. The evildoers know they cannot launch an overt war, and Russia stands in the way of their covert wars. That gives space for reconstruction.
