ALL LARGE CITIES REMAIN FIRMLY IN SAA CONTROL

Latakia, Tartous and Sweida are safe. Idlib, Hama and Homs have been liberated. Large operations underway in Aleppo and Damascus with more than 80 % of these capital cities under government control. Daraa and Deir ez-Zor have been holding on for a while. Government troops there are largely entrenched with some sporadic advances.

The only large city under insurgent control is ar-Raqqah. But note that ISIS are waging war on four fronts; against the Syrian Arab Army, the Iraqi army, the Kurds and the remaining “rebel” groups. They are somewhat outnumbered and have implemented a harsh penal code to keep residents frightened. The inhabitants of Raqqah never joined the demonstrations of the socalled “uprising” which proves citizens here preferred life under Assad.

But fear not – there are several thousand NDF soldiers stationed within Raqqah governorate. They are held up at Brigade 93, Division 17 and Tabqa Airbase. Several reports indicate that the latter has been rearmed and resupplied by a convoy travelling from Hama. Don’t be surprised if you see a push towards the city of Raqqah within a few months. Momentum is vital.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, my friends.

US trains Syrian rebels in Qatar to ‘ambush’ soldiers and ‘finish off’ the wounded – report http://rt.com/news/161820-us-trains-syrian-rebels/

“At a secret base in Qatar, the US military is training rebels to raid Syrian government troops and vehicles, as well as to “finish off the soldiers still alive after an ambush,” first-hand interviews in a Frontline documentary have revealed…”

While Syria makes advance, the zionazis increase their effort to destroy her.

Nice, the US teach them to do war crimes (kill woundet soldiers) and the jihadies are stupid enough to tell the press that the US-Army teach them warcrimes.

The war reached a new sensitive phase. Militarily, the ‘Delayed Confrontation’ stance is at work in key to several areas that are outside the classic military collision fronts between JN-IF and the SAA. Aleppo is no longer a government enclave in a rebel area – as of now it has become clear that the JN-IF control is not more than any other party. Politically, the west renewed the policy of discrediting the Syrian Government while promoting the legitimacy of their puppet opposition council. Here is my map, It’s not perfect but it is very realistic. http://s1070.photobucket.com/user/amaraen1/media/SyriaMay25.png.html I suggest the SAA… Read more »

It’s not a good plan, and a waste of resources. Here’s why. -Its doesn’t cut off the biggest SAA problem, the Saudi-Qatar-Turkey supply line. -A land grab is almost useless if it doesn’t stop bullets and bombs from getting to your enemies. -If you have a big advantage in troops and supplies you’d want to increase engagement lines not reduce them. If you had a lessor amount of troops you’d want to shorten lines and take defensive positions to offset the imbalance. – A front with no depth is exactly what the rebels want and is the reason they attacked… Read more »

Here’s a map, draw on it what you think is the best next limited offensive – One that is reasonable given the current resources, civilian centers, etc. I wonder what it is you have in mind.

To win in Syria today you have to either win the hearts and minds of the minority amount of Sunni civilians supporting the rebels or kill them all, their support base. One or the other, the only way to win in Syria. While Assad seems to use a 20% carrot and 80% stick ratio, I would go 95% on winning hearts and minds (carrot) and 5% (stick) on killing them all mix, myself. The president needs to follow a pattern of political compromise even if it disingenuous, like after getting elected again saying, “my heart is broken for Syria so… Read more »

Ameer,
we have to wait until Aleppo is encircled and Nubl and Zahraa have the siege lifted. After that the rebel/terrorists will find themselfe in a very bad situation. The advances in Hama and Idlib will backfire and the weapons supply for theses areas will completely dry up. They will be outstreached in a big pocket with no hope.

I agree, pushing to Anadan and Nubl/Zahraa is needed. Maybe if ISIS is getting whooped push for Al-Bab too. This will severely cut supply lines. But I agree the southern-aleppo countryside is a thorn in the side. Supply lines to Aleppo are much longer because of it and they threaten the corridor from khannasar to As-Safira. Also taking over this area would lift the siege of Abu Duhur and reconnect with the SAA “island” of Hish/Wadi Deif-area.

I would like to believe Chris about light at the end of the tunnel but today Obama said training and high tech weapons will be sent to moderate rebels, whoever they might be. It is a race against time to get this war settled before the U.S. gets more involved. Anti aircraft weapons are expected to be provided to terrorists. Obama has been slow to give consistent support to these rebels until now that he sees they may lose.

The initial ape rampage and ‘conquest’ began to loose it’s momentum just as Assad reluctantly committed to conducting whole-scale war, realizing his country was being destroyed regardless.

The momentum has reversed and it will not cease now. All parties (especially the criminal perpetrators) can see this.
So now we hear non-stop nonsense about the ICC, about ‘new’ weapons, about possible intervention (yes and the hitler youth and volkstrum will beat back the red army any day now).

Anything but Assad’s absolute victory is and shall remain forever a fantasy of the west and it’s idiots.

Let him send whatever he wants; anti air craft weapons, anti human weapons, anti-logic weapons! As of today, in its fight against JN-IF-FSA there are no civilian centers in Syria that require the government to use the Air Force to conquer. In the north, Azaz is only 30 km away from the Aleppo Central Prison, while Nubl and Al-Zahra are only 15 km away from the Aleppo Central Prison, and about 10 km from the SAA control in Aleppo itself. In the south, the SAA operates within a few km’s from the border with Jordan, and several major towns are… Read more »

There is no magical weapons my friend that can save the Rebels now..that will allow the Cannibal Rebels To Reverse their doomed terrolution . US or NATO best Anti Tanks weapons are not going to save them. Neither modern Manpads.. IF the American Government become really desperate and crazy ,They could in theory give the rebels the same Predator Drones they use in Afganistan.. but those will be easy target for Syria very highly mobileair defenses like ,Pantsir and Tor and buk defenses.. Those mobile air defenses will be a very BIG PAIN in the ass and in the balls… Read more »

There is no magic in warfare. It’s 100% science, and always has been. The side that receives or has the most advanced and/or largest stockpile of weapons wins, every time, in every war. The USA small to moderate increase in weapons will only slow down the inevitable, that the rebels will lose as long as more financial and militarily support goes towards Assad. Also, as long as Saudi and Qatar continue to pour cash and weapons into the rebels this war will not be over like dreamers and romantics are telling you. Just like the previous commenter (Ameer) said, “Azaz… Read more »

Richard The logic of flow of (modern weapons / money / fighters / media propaganda) to sustain the war in a desired direction is undeniable; we all see it and understand it, and many of us here have followed the conflict for years now. Militarily, the SAA is over-stretched, and I think you noticed that it tackles one major advance at a time on a certain front while delaying others. Yes the engagement lines are much shorter today than a year ago, but that is a reason for winning so far! and what is a military win/advance if it does… Read more »

I have ideas of my own, but who is right and who is wrong? the problem is there are too many players and the yanks know this as well as the zionists, the only real way is to have more men fighting with the SAA, i still say to the President, you need to call in for help, maybe even on the lines of all ex-pats and another with an international defence force ( although this could be infiltrated by CIA etc, i do know a safe way).

false flag would be the stupidest move that is possible!
Look at all the false flag bullshit the rebels do “poison gas, poison gas” “massacre, massacre” etc. did it help?

SAA should do what they do, win it the good old way: town after town, city after city. The rats may get more cannon fodder from all aound the world, but it´s badly trained Cannon fodder only useable for suicide missions and spray and pray attacks. They have quantity but no quality

I have been noticing in the last few weeks in the half trustworthy wikimapia for Syrian war that several villages changed color to red dots in the Al Raqqa province, this either shows it was wrongly reported in the past as in rat hands or that SAA/NDF are quitely changing the game there as the article above is pointing out. Any change in Al Raqqa is considered a major blow to the rats, no matter which kind of rodents are currently there, shifted hands so many times…. On the other hands, i notice the concern of new weapons in the… Read more »

An elite few have been able to turn Liberty into a whore. Her citizens would love to believe that the 2nd amendment gives them ultimate freedom. But in reality, if all her debts were to be called in, there would be no bread and the citizens would turn their guns on each other.

unless Syria gets a modern airforce wich would be capable of deterring a massive foreign attack. There is no light at the end of the tunnel. It would take just one conservative U.S. president to bomb the hell out of Syria. The Russians are helping Syria a lot but they could do much more if only they would stop making backdoor deals with the west like they did with Iraq, and Lybia.

The best defense Syria could do against a US attack is stockpile lots of S-300 and S-400 anti-aircraft missiles(S-400 if they can get them) and lots of long range anti-ship missiles and this time do a good job hiding them so they can’t get picked off so easily.

Just the fact that the US will have to incur losses of maybe a dozen planes and/or 1-2 warships will do a lot to discourage a deter a future attack. No bully wants to punch a kid they know will punch them back.

Freeman what makes you or anyone else believe that the USA will directly attack Syria? Remember they pushed in coordination with the CIA orchestrated chemical weapon false flag BS last year. That was their cassus belli and in that case the rug was pulled out from under them. Since then the USA’s relative power (it is largely perception based after all, and there is a science specific to that too) has only been diminishing. So now they need to talk extra loud and keep threatening. We have already seen their attempt to play their hand and it failed absolutely, even… Read more »

You are correct David, the American population have no desire to fight a war in Syria. Apparently they can recall who was responsible for the 9/11 terror attacks. Somehow though the politicians forget most of the attackers hailed from the Saudi Ape Kingdom.

911 was an inside job planned and executed by Israel.
