Senator Richard Black sent this inspiring message to us:
I can’t thank you enough for the constant up-to-date news feed throughout the war. I’ve read your site constantly for years now. You’ve done a great deal to expose the tsunami of state-sponsored propaganda.
The small array of true reports like yours, coming out of Syria, have bedeviled the CIA, MI6, MIT and all the rest. Increasingly, Americans, Brits, French and the rest are realizing that the Deep State planned and executed this war to benefit the Saudis, Qataris and Turks; to influence world oil markets; to spread savage Wahhabism; to amass huge war profits; and to enrich politicians through cunning legal devices and outright bribes.
May God bless Syria and its allies in their war against the most hideous terrorists in human memory.
Richard H. Black
Senator of Virginia
Ziad’s Response to Senator Black:
To the Honorable Richard Black, Senator of Virginia, You have bestowed upon me an honor which I will cherish forever. Both you and Tulsi Gabbard have been beacons of truth and dignity throughout the entire disgraceful episode of American and NATO involvement in the deliberate torment of the Syrian people. Never stop telling the truth and standing for what is right. That is what makes you an exceptional and effective servant of the people of the United States. With deepest humility and wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Ziad A. Fadel.
And here are some comments that popped up on my email:
Ron Chandler DAMN! Kudos to both of you. I have enjoyed Ziad Fadel’s invaluable and eloquent reportage for years too. It’s a real joy to know his efforts have reached quarters where America’s leaders read them. Sen. Black is a brave and honest American patriot, who…See More

Mawuena Hormeku May the Good Lord grant him the strength to continue exposing the Evils of capitalist-ridden war imposed on the vulnerable Syrians by some depraved minds in New York, London, Paris, Berlin and Brussels.
‘Ayn Al-Feeja: The Army is reportedly inside this locale famous for its water springs which supply 70% of the capital’s potable water needs. As we reported in earlier posts, the Ahraar Al-Shaam faction which is, in truth, nothing more than a façade for Alqaeda/Nusra, began cutting off the water supply to the population as a form of punishment for not supporting terrorism. As of this moment, Ahraar Al-Shaam mongrels who rejected the ceasefire have turned coat and openly joined Nusra/Alqaeda. They are not a part of any ceasefire and are fair game for the SAA. The army’s Republican Guard is now poised to move finally against all pockets of terrorism in the area and to end, once and for all, the reign of terror these rodents have inflicted on this rural population.
The government claims the rodents dumped diesel fuel into the water sources in order to pollute them. We have also received word that the terrorists deliberately destroyed water pumping stations after loading up on water in anticipation of the army’s imminent move against them. The army is in control of all hilltops over the town and has moved inside to confront the rodents who, as usual, have collected a few die-hard civilians to use them as human shields.
Some terrorist groups have announced their unwillingness to abide by the terms of the cease fire agreement. Some have even announced their withdrawal of support for the talks in Astana, Kazakhstan. Interestingly, all the groups which declared these negative positions are those affiliated with Nusra.
There is also developing news that the terrorists are withdrawing from towns and villages in the Golan as part of a deal which will see them moving in green buses to Idlib. I will report on that tomorrow as more information comes in.
The Syrian Arab Army struck hard at Nusra/Alqaeda positions here at Al-Mahatta and Jawaalik Villages using extremely accurate artillery and rocket fire. The army confirms the destruction of 1 pickup with 23mm cannon and the deaths of these vultures:
Muhammad Qaasim Al-Haaj (Leader of terrorist pack)
Ahmad Khaalid Al-Muhammad
There are convincing reports coming, primarily from Al-Masdar News, that ISIS is starting to move out of the western rural areas of Palmyra after suffering unsustainable losses in battles with the Syrian military.
This morning, in the early hours, the ISIS cockroaches launched a large military campaign to assault the entire eastern perimeter of the Airbase. The attack, as always, flopped with scores of rodents dotting the flat surface around the base. My source in Damascus tells me over 20 ISIS terrorists were killed in the initial assault. We can also confirm the destruction of 2 rocket launchers and all temporary fortifications built up by the terrorists during the night in preparation for the attack.
Other action involved SAA artillery and tank fire hitting terrorist positions in Al-Sinaa’ah and Al-Jubayliyya quarters in Dayr El-Zor.
