SYRIAN ARMY TO ENTER AFREEN; GEARING UP FOR WAR; U.S. IN THE CROSSHAIRS

Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s able foreign minister, has formally accused the U.S. of supporting Jabhat Al-Nusra (Alqaeda), an organization considered terrorist by every nation on earth except the Zionist Apartheid Entity.  Not only does the UN consider Nusra a terrorist organization, but, also, the American Department of State.  Lavrov stated that it was obvious the U.S. was not willing to fight Nusra in Syria based on their inaction whenever opportunities arose to strike that terrorist group.  Just as the U.S. created Alqaeda, so did the U.S. create Nusra.  Remember some of my old articles about this subject:  Nusra which means “assistance” in Arabic was created by Robert Ford and Bandar bin Sultaan when they realized that the Syrian Army was not falling apart – that there were insufficient deserters to fight the Syrian Arab Army, and, thus, there was a need for assistance.  Nusra is plain and simple Saudi Arabia.  To what extent Muhammad bin Salmaan, the reigning clown prince,  is willing to continue to finance that organization is anybody’s guess at this stage.  Notwithstanding the finance issue, it appears clear that the U.S. is prepared to do all that is necessary to preserve the terrorism in Syria through the offices of Nusra.  This is a shameful day in American history.

The Tiger Division, led by Maj. Gen. Suhayl Al-Hassan, is massing at the borders of the East Ghouta.  I have been informed that the division comprised of over 11,000 soldiers which also fields improved T-72 tanks with Saraab 2 anti missile equipment is preparing for the last push to eradicate Jaysh Al-Islam, Nusra and Faylaq Al-Sham once and for all.  The battle could start at any moment.  I suspect that once Jaysh Al-Islam has been vanquished, General Al-Hassan will be tasked with wiping out Nusra and allied terrorists in Idlib.  How the U.S.will help Nusra will be most indicative of Washington’s dirty hands.

Syria’s vaunted Popular Defense militia is entering ‘Afreen as I write.  The Turks, who have no experienced field commanders, (Erdoghan having jailed or cashiered almost all of them) have threatened to strike Syria’s pro-government militias since, by Turkish logic,  they will be protecting PKK fighters.  This is an interesting development seeing ‘Afreen is Syrian territory.  Now we will see how Russia reacts if Syrian forces are hit by the Turk army.  Of interest also is how Iran, which has a mutual defense pact with Syria, will respond if the Turks trigger the pact.  So far, Iran has been extremely critical of Ankara’s actions in the north of Syria.  We at SyrPer do not believe the Turks have the muscle for a new war to their south.  While we have deep suspicions about the Kurds, they are, after all, Syrian citizens who look to Damascus for help and protection.

It is a virtual certainty that Donald Trump has no idea about what is going on in Syria or Iraq, for that matter.  He is consumed by a narcissistic obsession with how he is perceived globally.  As of today, the CIA is running foreign relations for the United States without any involvement by Rex Tillerson who seems clueless, rudderless, at sea.  These are the same CIA spooks who bet their world on overthrowing Dr. Assad.  They are now back with even more vitriol, pushing a Zionist neo-con agenda despite the radical changes on the ground.

The United States, as I wrote before, is in a fallback position in Syria.  With a large number of special operations soldiers helping the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces, they are especially vulnerable today.  Planning in Moscow and Damascus has shifted substantially from fighting a defeated ISIS to now extirpating U.S. forces from the country.  A lot will depend on Iraq’s cooperation with Damascus.  If the Iraqis deny the U.S. rights to fly over its territory, Washington will have to scrub any agreements with the Kurds in order to use Incirlik in Turkey.  It’s a mess.  The only other alternative, is the Zionist Terrorist State’s airbases which will bring about a potential WWIII or something truly horrible.  The U.S. has cornered itself.  It is trapped between a rock and a hard place with no perceivable way out.  Just as Afghanistan is sucking American energy, so will this latest adventure in Syria.  And it’s just beginning.

Zeev Sternhell says Israel is Israel is a Nazi state. Must say I agree with his conclusions. Zeev Sternhell is a Polish-born Israeli historian, political scientist, commentator on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, and writer. He is one of the world’s leading experts on fascism. Sternhell headed the Department of Political Science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Of course the Zio-media immediately hurled the accusation against him of being a self-hating Jew… which itself lends support to his original thesis of the profoundly disturbing parallels existing between Zionism and the Israeli state organs of oppression and Nazism.

“The general in charge of U.S. Central Command said 27 February countering Iran is not a mission of US-led coalition fighting ISIS. Asked by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) about what US can do in Syria to address threats posed by Iran, Gen. Joseph Votel replied: “As you know, countering Iran is not one of the coalition missions in Syria.” (Interesting comment if true, sustained policy, despite most know who is pushing US to take down Iran via regime change – which will not occur.

As VoltaireNet’s Serge Marchand tells, the E Ghouta cauldron is home to many satanic agents of the NWO hegemons, who are now squirming, their testicles tightening against their bellies, seeing the inexorable Syrian Arab Army closing in.
“In reality, this area is held by Al-Qaïda, under the title of “The Army of Islam” (Jaish al-Islam), supervised by the British SAS and officers from the French DGSE ( Direction Generale de la Securite Extérieur) under cover of the NGO Medecins Sans Frontieres.”

Important development happening in East Ghouta tonight. As a consequence of recent advances in the past few days, the RGs and Tiger Forces managed to break through the terrorist’s lines in the very important Al Shifuniyal-Hawsh ad Dawahirah axis, allowing the forces to approach south of Al Shifuniyal with some fight inside it but still very uncertainty on the results inside the village.

I would like to add that that Turkey and Qatar seem to be tamed already, as Turkey fights against US-Kurds and Qatar is supplied by Iran and protected by Turkish soldiers against US soldiers. KSA is also slowly coming to China/Russia. And we have also to look on how many former NATO-allied countries want to buy S400. Only Israel remains, in the end as an isolated country. Certainly, we need some more time so see the fruits of this development.

The case of Qatar is a bit bizarre, in spite of its isolation by the other gulf wahabbi kleptocracies and its reproachment with Iran the vast al-Udeid Air Base south of the capital city Doha is one of the largest US military bases in the region, with around 10,000 US troops stationed there.

Just look again at WW2 and the German plan to gain control over the Caucasus and capture the oil fields of Baku during the Soviet-German War.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Caucasus

Rockefeller & Rothschild wanted their HANDS on those oil fields. So they supported BOTH sides. Either plunge them into debts or conquer them. Control over those OIL fields was the target. Maybe Hitler failed? Maybe Stalin broke ties with the Rothschild-Zionists-Illuminati-Freemasons?

The gold bars, oil and gas is ALWAYS their primary goal.

They could have flew down the main roads in the flat lands, cut the bulge in half, and starved the mountain kurds out.
This turk method is a power move that says “if we want, we will war in the mountains”
OR maybe the turks want the whole mountain range, as a defensive position against any future moves from a southern direction.

Turkish Army & proxy militants captured almost entire Syrian border area that runs throughout country’s Afrin region following new wave of effortless advances on 25 Feb that led to seizure of seven towns and villages. Virtually no resistance was encountered. Taken control of settlements of Samalik, Sheikh Muhammadi, Wilakli, Dudu, Kunda Dudu, Bandarlik and Maydan Ikbis. Kurdish fighters have withdrawn from Syrian-Turkish border areas across the Afrin region. (Moving swiftly. Mike).

When the Yehudistani F16 was shot down, I had a conversation here in rainy Tehran with a retired air force colonel.

It was shooting down incoming IDF helicopters ferrying invading troops and supplies to behind the line air supplied invasion spearheads that in large part led to the Zionist humiliation in 2006.

The military and psychological humiliation that the IDF was forced by Hezbollah to endure on the battlefield in 2006 has scarred the ethno-supremacist state and its captains in ways that cannot be concealed. Sure they bombed Lebanon’s civilian infrastructure, the Israelis, like the Americans are all about delivering death and suffering from the sky… but on the military front lines — and those surrounded indefensible behind the lines bases — they got their sorry asses handed to them, real good.

Merci beaucoup Aleksandar,

Yes, I am far from a military expert. If taking greater time means less suffering for innocent civilians then I am totally for it.

Even if taking EG takes half a hear so be it, with its restoration to government control, other rebel pockets will fall much quicker e.g. the jayrud and Hama-Homs pockets in the centre.

Possibly by the end of 2018 both Idlib and E.G. will be in government control and apart from the SDF areas the war will basically be over.

The strategy of reconciliation is wise and a stroke of military/civic brilliance.

Yes. I don’t know if it was inspired by the African National Congress, or would have been applied anyway due to true Islamic values and the teaching of the Koran.

While a ago, we shared at Syrper East Ghouta divided in 3 main parts, the east (NE/SE,east), the north(NW) and the south(SW), these are very well defined battlefields and the allied forces high command placed their troops based on what they can deliver in each one of the quadrant.

Seems logical, but we always have seen pauses or phases of only artillery shelling, like the past week or so. Periods where negotiations are tried, e.g. to greenbus the terrorists or to evacuate the civilians. And phases where the SAA stops, builds up traps and lets the terrorists make the counterattack into those traps. Also, on the highest political level, sometimes truces are ordered. Last, conservative estimations tend to be correct more often than optimistic ones, because life is not as plannable as we wish.

You are probably right, but in the grand scheme of things in 20 years time, whether E.G. took 1 month or 2 months to capture will seem minor.

It’s clear that the SAA are totally determined to take it back and when you have 25,000 surrounding this small enclave, that’s it. It’s GAME OVER for the rebels there.

The United Nations Security Council has voted to declare an instant ceasefire in Syria, as if they collectively have some magic wand:

https://www.un.org/press/en/2018/sc13221.doc.htm

Mr. President Putin has carefully pointed out this ceasefire does not apply to operations against declared terrorist organizations.

https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201802251061977973-putin-macron-merkel-syria-truce/

Such as East Ghouta. Nevertheless, I will be willing to bet a bridge that western media will be hysterically howling about ceasefire violations in Eastern Ghouta very shortly, using video from White Helmets.

This ceasefire is largely meaningless, given that Turkey will keep going in Afrin too, because, like everybody else, they have their own definition of who is a terrorist.

Will they finish the job this time? Why did they stop when they were doing so well in Idlib?

The next phase entails moving on from these newly captured areas on to taking Saraqeb. 2.

There may be some to and fro and some drama, but the cold hard decision to restore Ghouta to government control has been made. 25,000 troops have been mobilized to execute this operation. 2. With the capture of eastern Ghouta, government troops and resources can be released on to other areas including of course Idlib.

I just want to add that “Gibratarians” and people of Falkland were mostly brought by the British there, are part of the British “empire” or the rest of it, payed by it, and naturally, support it. Nothing to take seriously. If Gibraltar and the Falklands are taken back in the future – and they will – the British “supporters” will go with the British, and the Spanish and Argentinians will repoluate those small areas.

I don’t think it’s as simple as that. Gibraltar may go back to Spanish control (after 300 years, longer than the US has existed for example) but no one is going to ethnically cleanse a diverse and mixed population which includes Gibraltarians of Spanish, Portuguese, Moroccan, Maltese, Italian origins. It’s all about economics really. Gibraltarians are better off under a wealthier UK which has a stronger pound rather than economically weaker Spain which has problems such as the Euro-problem, high youth unemployment. If the UK stagnates economically and Spanish power rises, then the UK may think of the “Hong Kong”… Read more »

Thanks for the valuable information. Let’s hope that those are serious conflicts and not only a NATO show for the Spanish people, so that they support their fascist leadership. And let’s hope that the British get weaker and weaker. And I didn’t intend an ethnical cleanse, I just wanted to explain that those areas are very small, have a large percentage of UK military personnel etc., which will go back to UK when those areas will come back to their natural motherlands.

Interesting comments regarding Turkey above. There are numerous facts that prove they are still strongly allied to the US but not controlled by them. Erdogan has consistently harmed Syria by supplying the drug addled goons that initially started the war. He then made the Turkey-Syria border porous, allowing international drug fuelled fantasists into Syria. He facilitated the British agent le Mesurier to create the White Helmets. He has continually called for President Assad’s removal. Accusations not yet proven but highly likely include the theft of industrial equipment, continued supplying of the weapons to terrorists and profiting from the theft of… Read more »

ziad, they rely primarily on terrorist organizations like the White Helmets and take their word verbatim without verification. They also take at face value reports from SOHR, which has long been recognized as being biased in favor of the opposition, though recently it’s been showing a little more objectivity, no doubt to shore up its sagging credibility. They have no actual journalists there, or for that matter in Damascus, though Eva Bartlett has managed to visit Syria 6 times, traveled freely without minders, and spoken in Arabic with Syrians without translators.

All I knew was that the British were constantly give them awards, which was a HUGE give-away that something isn’t right with them. Now it turns out the White Helmets are a UK -run psyops, just like the SOHR, which is a one man “media outlet”, run by an anti-Assad guy called Rami in Coventry.

Won’t hold, the resolution is the same as Aleppo, jihadists won’t follow it, they will continue to bomb civilians and the SAA and allies will finally liberated East Ghouta.
The nbrs of soldiers build up near and around East Ghouta is unprecedented, even higher than Aleppo. East Ghouta will be liberated, it must be liberated so the terrorists and their supporters lose their “bargain power” against the Syrian Government. The decision has been made, it will be liberated.

According to a reliable source, there will be no ceasefire in Eastern Ghouta due to the lack of guarantees by the governments supporting the Islamist militants. The military operation will continue to liberate the town from the terrorists. Russia’s amended Syrian UNSC resolution circulated – it includes 1. Condemns the “relentless shelling” of Damascus from the rebel-held suburbs of eastern Ghouta 2.”Foreign military forces can operate in Syria only in coordination with official authorities.” Ghouta Terrorists will be exterminated.

Its a conditional ceasefire from what I can tell. Certain groups are exempt from the ceasefire, like Nusra so operations will continue. But there are humanitarian corridors to be opened like in Aleppo, which will be abused by the darling head choppers of the Western bloc.

I can make an error, but apart from the fact that the Russians don’t want to appear “heartless” in the western MSM (wont work), perhaps it’s related to the Russian elections. The last thing that Putin would want is a confrontation before the elections, so even if the US attack before, it could be to not appear as a warmonger who rejected a deal and provoked the Americans in the eyes of the Russians.

Antijihadist “or make a buffer to return Syrian refugees back to Syria.”Shouldn’t Syrian refugees go back to Syria? If those displaced Syrians wish to return why shouldn’t they?

    Why do you take issue with that idea?

I know Usrael doesn’t want that to happen, since it impedes their desired Israel 2.0. aka Kurdistan. Hmmmm, that’s a bit of a red flag in my mind. Right of return is definitely something displaced Syrians are legitimately entitled to.

The issue with that is that Turkey will try to use this buffer twofold: 1) Arabize Kurdish regions for their obvious self interest.

And you exposed ” Penny for your thoughts” as a trojan horse in the anti establishment truthseeking media. If you give Turkey more credit than it deserves and put it on a pedestal on the same level of Syria or higher then you must be insane or just a plant to cause confusion in the supportrs of the resistance against the Zionist Wahabi western Turkish agenda.

Turk nationalist, like Penny, usually won’t support erDOGan but as soon as it is about nation state of Turkey, they will stand behind him. Many years ago, when erDOGan started peace dialogue with Kurds in Turkey, he became traitor for Turk nationalist. However, as soon as he started operation against Kurds, he became a hero of Turk nationalist. Both Turk nationalist and Kurds nationalist are secular but both are sworn enemies. It is about one nationalism vs another nationalism. The radical Turk or Kurdish nationalist or any radical nationalist can wine and dine with you, but if talk about the… Read more »

TH, it’s my opinion that the whole concept of a “nation-state” is contrary to the Western ideals (rarely practiced) of “equality under the law” and “unalienable rights” of individual members of society.

I know, it’s easier said than done, but we really need to get beyond nationalism (simply another name for tribalism) and recognize the inviolable borders of all existing states while insisting via non-violent means (like BDS) that all states recognize and protect the rights of all residents regardless of race, sex, religion, language or culture.

Thanks, Troll Hunter. This whole exchange exposes Penny as a Turk nationalist, and the above comment is especially cogent. Turkey owes Syria big time, way beyond what you’ve already stated: 1) for assisting in the infiltration of Central Asian and Chechen terrorists into Syria and providing logistics for their supply, 2) for the theft of most of Aleppo’s industrial equipment, 3) for assisting with false flag CW attacks in Syria which were blamed on the government of Syria and covering up its own role in those attacks and 4) for facilitating the theft of Syrian oil and its sale to… Read more »

I had no problem with her Turk nationalism but Penny’s recent subtle and clever attack, in the state of insecurity, on Syrian backed forces entering Afrin and elusive emphasis on Shiite militias cooperating with Kurds in Iraq in order to sow discord and confusion, forced me to hunt the camouflaged troll. Penny had been hanging around, like Truth said, as “trojan horse in the anti establishment truthseeking media” for many years without being identified as Turk nationalist posing as anti-US vocally and pro-US quietly at the same time? Pro-US when resisting the idea of removing the US bases from Turkey… Read more »

I never trusted the turks and said that many times here. syria should stop the turkish occupation in afrin by helping the kurds. Give them Kornet and Manpad misseles. Send supporting troops. Make them claer in syria you wont get along easy you will have to pay a high price. That they will understand otherwise they will try to anex syrian territory.

President Donald Trump appeared to dash the hopes of interventionists and contradict his own administration officials, by declaring that US troops’ mission in Syria is limited to defeating ISIS and doesn’t include regime change.

“We’re there for one reason: to get ISIS and get rid of ISIS, and to go home,” Trump said on Friday, during a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at the White House. “We’re not there for any other reason and we’ve largely accomplished our goal.”

There are still several pockets of ISIS in Syria, and the US will make sure they remain, so it has a reason to stay there and fight them. Quite simple, really.

Over the years the Shit Helmets have reported endless hospitals and schools destroyed, to the point where one has to come to the conclusion the entire population of Syria are either attending centres of learning or sitting in hospital waiting rooms. It’s a wonder anything ever got accomplished in that fair land. /sarc off
