Besides the Russian-manufactured S-500, the S-400 is the most desirable system for knocking down enemy aircraft. The Turks have insisted on purchasing the S-400 despite full-throated condemnation from NATO countries who argue that the system is incompatible with target-acquisition platforms used by NATO. The Turks have dug in their heels and shouted “Fudge!”. The deal is going through with or without Brussels’ acquiescence. European dawdling over Turkey’s efforts to join the EU has soured Ankara’s taste for the Continent.
But, efforts to negotiate a deal on the S-400s between Iran and Moscow have floundered. Moscow was only willing to sell Tehran the S-300, a less efficient and less effective system. The reason is quite simple: The Russians don’t trust the Iranians to simply buy the system and the Iranians have a proven record of reverse-engineering everything they get a hold of. One example is the American drone that was almost brought down on Iranian territory by a near-science fiction-like tractor beam that resulted in Iranian scientists recreating the drone for their own and their allies’ uses. Syria today uses that same drone design to harass and harry the terrorists in Idlib and Hama. Although the Chinese have been manufacturing effective drones for years, it is just better to get a drone free from Tehran, a drone whose technology is most familiar to Iranian fighters alongside the Syrian Army.
This is a problem the Americans face with China and its never-ending efforts to steal Yankee technology. The Russians are simply less transparent than the Americans. If they’re not sure you won’t re-manufacture the product, they won’t sell it to you.
To prove my point, folks, the S-300 has already been cloned in Iran and the number of batteries on the Bastion-like platform exceeds 75, many of which have already been delivered to Syria. This has caused some friction with Mr. Putin who, as you all know, doesn’t tolerate what he views as treachery. In any case, the new and improved S-300 deployed by the IRGC knocked down a drone, the RQ 4 Global Hawk, a couple of days ago – a drone that was touted as “untouchable”. That is why Trump balked.
THE PERSIAN GULF AT THE STRAITS OF HORMUZ:

At its narrowest point, the Straits of Hormuz, is 21 miles or 39 kms. wide. Both Iran and Oman, who are the nations at the narrowest point, extended their sea-air territorial claims 12 miles each for a total of 24 miles. So much for the American position that the drone which was knocked down was in international airspace. When the drone was detected crossing into Iranian airspace, the ground commander ordered the S-300 to blast it out of the skies. The Iranians now have a treasure chest of parts from the plane which they have recovered. The U.S. does not recognize either Iran’s or Oman’s claims to the 12 mile air and sea territorial extensions. The U.S. only recognizes its own 12 mile territorial barriers.
Two days ago, a drone was detected flying in from Idlib Province and on a straight path to Hama’s Military Airbase. (See map, above) The drone was shot down by an MT system and recovered. It turned out to be locally-built drone of the type used by HTS or Alqaeda. The drone was very sophisticated, armed with 10 missiles loaded with C-4 and had a very advaced GPS capability. It also had cameras aboard enabling it to send back images. The belief is that is was designed by a NATO country which wanted credible deniability as far as supporting terrorists such as these.
Today, terrorists coming out of Kafr Zaytaa, Al-Habeet and Al-Lataamina fired on North Hama at the villages of Al-Shaykh Hadeed and Al-Jarnaba a barrage of rockets which destroyed material assets of the villagers only. The SAA responded by firing back using artillery and destroyed several rocket launchers.
At Al-Mastooma and the area of Jabal Al-Arba’een SAA spotters pursued a series of convoys moving south towards Areeha. The SAA opened a torrent of artillery and rocket fire destroying all the convoys leaving the remnant rodents scurrying toward the village of Musaybeen. The group was Nusra (HTS or Alqaeda).
Don’t you just love hypocrisy? Don’t you love it when Evangelicals like Mike Pompeo and Mike Pence pontificate about Christianity and their ideological love for all things Zionist? Isn’t it just beautiful when Syrian security services come upon 4 tons of C-4 all manufactured in the United States? On June 1, 2019, that’s exactly what happened. This enhanced explosive used so frequently by terrorists all over the world was buried below the surface of the earth and was discovered after locals began describing ISIS’ frantic digging during last year’s love affair with the Zionist Settler State. But, to demonstrate how anarchic Daa`esh’s withdrawal really was, you have to imagine their willingness to leave millions of dollars worth of prime explosives right there for the security services to collect it and use it, hopefully, to wipe out the entire Saudi “royal” gang of birdbrains.
HAMA AND IDLIB:
Al-Huwayz: Liberated by the SAA in late May. The chaotic effort by the American-supported terrorists of Nusra to regain control of this village resulted in the untimely, but appropriate, deaths of 7 Uigher suicide bombers. Syrian Army snipers and roving patrols spotted the weaponized trucks with the doomed drivers praying at the doors of the vehicles with shamans around them soothing their wracked nerves and promising them a world much better than this in the afterlife. And that’s exactly what they got. As the trucks formed a line, the SAA opened fire with RPGs and Grads. The line fell apart as the Uighers of Nusra tried desperately to escape the rockets raining down on them, but to no avail. They were all incinerated. But, hey! There’s a price to pay for Paradise, right?
Shahrnaaz and Al-‘Inkaawi villages: On June 1, 2019, Nusra lost all vehicles along with 9 confirmed fatalities when the SAA and the RuAF descended upon them like the wolf on the fold. Monitored terrorist chatter indicated a wild retreat and reports of scores wounded and needing immediate medical attention.
Kafr Hood: The SAA confirmed destroying 7 4-wheel drive vehicles and 3 flatbeds with the usual Doschka on June 10, 2019.
Tal Milih-Jibbeen-North Maharda Axis: Today, June 11, 2019, after confirming surveillance reports from spotters and drones, the SAA initiated an attack on Nusra and Kataa`ib Al-‘Izza with several direct hits on an undisclosed number of pickups with 23mm Doschka anti-aircraft machine gun cannons.
Kafr Zaytaa: A robust assault by the SAA on a formation of rocket launchers resulted in a serious degradation of terrorist capabilities which has now opened up the way to liberating this important town.
Al-Naqeer: Evidence suggests the SAA is preparing a huge assault on this town belonging to Khaan Shaykhoon.
`Urayniba: This village in the area of Areeha was the scene of a cleverly executed ambush by SAA-SOF killing a confirmed 5 terrorists and the capture of 11 others. Interestingly, none were Syrian nationals. That’s all I know.
During the middle of May, the SAA initiated a robust attack on Kafr Nabbooda and took the town over. This town is right on the highway from Aleppo to the coast and is crucial for any economic comeback for the Syrian economy. The terrorists, obviously, appreciate that fact and held on to it tenaciously as the SAA-MI and Russian agents carefully collected intercepts from the treacherous Turks insisting on holding the town. When the terrorist rodents collapsed, they retreated to areas in Idlib under rodent and, ergo, Turkish control. During this time, the Turkish military both resupplied and reinforced the ranks of Hay`at Tahreer Al-Shaam (another incarnation of Al-Qaeda) providing the criminals with a batch of Maldivian suicide bombers. The Turks were also generous enough to provide the cockroaches with Mercedes trucks to carry the vast amount of explosives which would break the defensive lines of the SAA at the town. In addition to all this largesse, the Turks supplied HTS with over 300 armored vehicles from North Aleppo, (right on the border with Turkey), thousands of reinforcements from a terrorist group called “Al-Jaysh Al-Watani” or the “National Army” which, amazingly, is made up of mostly Turks or Turkish-speaking cockroaches. They also supplied them with Saudi-and-Qatari purchased TOW and Kornet anti-tank rockets. The TOWs have been rendered largely useless thanks to a domestically produced anti-TOW rocket now standard on all SAA tanks. It’s called the Saraab 1 and Saraab 2.
When the SAA pulled out under extremely heavy pressure, the army re-positioned itself around Kafr Nabbooda and began bringing up vast supplies of very modern weapons including rockets and medium range artillery. While all this was being done, the Russians cleverly engaged Ankara in talks about a potential new cease fire. Since the terrorists had recaptured the town, essentially blunting Syria’s efforts to clear the roadway, they became distracted as the SAA massed heretofore unseen war material. This did not stop the Americans and Zionists from contacting MIT to inform their war room that the SAA was not going to let the counter-attack stand.
Once all weapons and reinforcements were properly positioned, on May 24, 2019, in the very early hours, the terrorists could hear SAF and RAF bombers overhead coordinating with ground artillery and missile forces. The targets were HTS’ newly erected barricades and revetments. They were, literally, pulverized. Once the area was softened up, the commanding general ordered tank forces to move forward in a pincer type movement that cut off all escape routes and plugged an corridors for resupply. Wael reports that MI picked up frantic communications from the trapped hyenas demanding immediate assistance.
The terrorists lost 38 of their most experienced terrorists. We know the exact number because they did not have time to pick up their dead. This number is bound to rise as scores were wounded with no hope of receiving medical care. 4 T-62 tanks were also destroyed along with 11 APCs and an untold number of 4-wheel drive flatbeds armed with the usual Doschka. The hundreds who escaped did so on foot with the unappealing prospect of being captured by SAA soldiers.
The Syrian Army is now geared to invade the following towns: Al-Habeet, Khaan Shaykhoon, Ma’arrat Hurma and Kafr Sijna.

The SAA has discovered a tunnel 20 meters deep and 50 meters long in this recently liberated town with a great citadel. The tunnel was divided into a headquarters for HTS, a torture chamber, several jail cells, ammo storage with a locally-manufactured Hell-Fire cannon.
They also found, in another area, a White Helmets clinic complete with prescription drugs, medical instruments and anti-poison gas uniforms made in Germany.
HAMA: There can be no question that the Syrian Army has started up the process of clearing out the rodents from both Hama and Idlib. The terrorists knew that the campaign was going to begin on Monday, May 6, 2019 in the early hours. That is why they began an intensive assault on SAA positions in an effort to delay the onset of the invasion to liberate the rat-infested provinces and return them to the central government’s writ. In doing that, the Turks noticed their allies were being swamped and tried to intervene to stop the SAA’s advances. That resulted in several Turk soldiers getting wounded and needing immediate medical attention. Enter Russia which engineered an agreement to allow Turkish ambulances into the combat zone to remove the wounded Turk soldiers.
The Syrian Army has declared Qal’at Al-Madheeq, Al-Karakaat Village and Al-Tuwayna Village liberated as elements of Syria’s Third Mechanize Army crushed the fleeing rodents belonging to Nusra (Alqaeda). The rodents were so desperate to lessen the pressure that they strapped a Uigher belonging to the Hizb Al-Turkistaani into a truck laden with explosives and had him drive the vehicle toward Syrian Army troops on the road to Kafr Nabbooda. The SAA is very attuned to these kinds of tactics and immediately identified the truck as one from the enemy. A spotter defined the coordinates for the army and a T-72 tank blasted the truck off the road causing a massive explosion.
On May 8, 2019, the army struck Al-Hizb Al-Islaami Al-Turkistaani, a mostly Uigher group of terrorists supported by Ankara, at Tallat Baakeer in northwest Hama killing or wounding all the terrorists. This group is controlled by both Turkey and Nusra/Alqaeda and led by Jundallah Al-Turkistaani. However, the Uigher group is extremely weak in communications what with Nusra controlling all advanced systems. Thus, it is easy for the SAA-MI to monitor the Uigher communications with the help of Chinese interpreters. In this instance, the SAA was defending the town and used an old trick to make the Uighers think that they had abandoned it. As the Uighers advanced in the belief there was no resistance, the SAA, using Hannibal’s ancient technique, closed the pincers and massacred the stinking lice-ridden criminals. No reinforcements could arrive to help these cockroaches as SAA artillery shellacked all roads leading into the area. An actual field assessment showed that 33 Uighers were killed with scores wounded. This was a major disaster for the jackals.
On the same day, the SAA rained artillery and rockets on the terrorists in Al-Zakaat.
Also, at Ma’ar Tamaatir, Kafr Roomaa, Kinsafra and Ma’arrat Hurma, in South Idlib, the SAA devastated terrorist positions. In addition to this, terrorists redeployed to northern Latakia were struck by SAA rockets.
Since May 5, 2019, terrorists taking orders from Turkish commanders on the ground targeted mostly Christian towns like Suqaylbiyya with mortars and artillery. Prior to that, on May 2, 2019, the same Turk-controlled terrorists bombed Maharda’s Electric Power Station. With their Russian equipment, the SAA annihilated all sources for the launching of rockets in preparation for the May 6, 2019 offensive to retake all Idlib and most of northwest Hama.
On Monday, May 6, 2019, Russia’s Defense Ministry announced the unification of rats under the wing of Hay’at Tahreer Al-Shaam, another name for Nusra/Alqaeda in what appeared to be in preparation for an invasion of Hama City. For Russia, this was the last straw and President Putin gave the go-ahead to the SAA to invade. Deconfliction zones worked out with Ankara were removed from the agreement at Lataamina and Kafr Zaytaa. The moment the orders came to Syrian officers, the plans, designed for months, went into effect. The SAA launched an assault on Al-‘Aqeema and Kafr Nabbooda to strangle the rodents. That resulted in the liberation of Kafr Nabooda today, May 10, 2019.
This is why Turkey is pulling troops out of camps like Sha’shabbu. Their helicopters could be seen as they evacuated positions fearing the arrival of Syrian Army troops and tanks.
As the SAA advanced over the crushed corpses of the fleeing rodents, they liberated whole towns from Haass, Safawhan, Ihsim and Al-Jaanoodiyya in rural Idlib killing scores of terrorists. THE ARMY IS ON A ROLL.
Of course, as you might all guess, the United States and its sleazy allies in NATO are calling for a meeting of the U.N.S.C at the end of this month to discuss the deteriorating situation in Idlib and Hama. Yawn. Russia already knows the score and is preparing, like China, a stern veto over any Western resolution condemning the Syrian Army. Russia is also in direct communication with Turkey telling Erdoghan that his time is up. Erdoghan did not just play a dirty game with the vote in Istanbul, he played a dirtier one in Syria. The jig is up. No more Mr. Nice Guy.
Qal’at Al-Madheeq: According to our sources in Latakia, SAA-MI used high-flying drones to capture images of Nusra-Alqaeda terrorists gathering to re-fortify positions around this sleepy town in Northern Hama Province. Once coordinates were provided to SAA ground forces, artillery and missile launchers were directed to fire and the devastation was complete. All fortifications were destroyed with over 15 casualties reported by the terrorist group using unencrypted telephones communicating with their HQ in Hatay, Turk-Occupied Syria. Two were killed with the rest wounded, many in critical conditions according to the intercept. The two dead were identified as “Abu-Ghaazi Al-Idlibi” and “Abu-Ahmad Taftanaaz“.
Al-Tamaani’ah: In Idlib Province, here in the southeast, Syrian Army special operations forces trapped a platoon-sized grouping of Nusra cockroaches and wiped them out. A search of their carcasses revealed they were all foreigners with phenotypes similar to Chechens or Daghistaanis. No names available.
Jarjanaaz east of Ma’arrat Al-Nu’maan, SAA destroyed launchers used by the terrorists to strike at secure areas.
Al-Lataamina and Al-Mansoora: More incursions by terrorists result in greater casualties. These groups were from Kataa`ib Al-‘Izza.
The United States luxuriates in its pathological hypocrisy. On the one hand they slap sanctions against a government arm like the IRGC in Iran, accusing it of spreading its “malign” influence throughout the Middle East, while, on the other hand the United States stands for the rule of law and democracy. Yawn. What outright hogwash! In the photograph above, (courtesy of SANA), you can see a virtual catalogue of American-made weapons which were provided to the “takfeeri” terrorists by both the U.S. and the Zionist Apartheid State. The cache was discovered yesterday by elements of Syria’s security forces.
For those who stand with imbecile Trump, or even that more malignant rodent, Obama, keep the photo under your pillow before you go out and make a fool of yourself. The evidence of American support for terrorism is incontrovertible and is piling up.
(Photo Credit: Codepink.org) Elliott Abrams, a Zionist katsa neo-con slug has been tasked with overthrowing the legitimate president of Venezuela. This “ojete chingado” was convicted of lying to Congress back in the days of the Iran-Contra scandal and should have had his career terminated but for the fact that he is the kind of rodent loved by Washington’s neo-con cabal of murdering Zionist sociopaths.
People are finally realizing that the situation in Venezuela is the same as that of Syria in 2011. It is becoming increasingly clear that die-hard, entrenched Zionist neo-cons in Washington will not give up on their insane crusade to make the Zionist Apartheid State both unassailable and durable. Maduro has taken our advice, evidently, and is studying the Syrian model closely. The Russians, who are committed to Maduro’s survival, are also giving him advice based on the rich records they have of the war in Syria and their own involvement. They have told him to stay put and control the streets.
In Syria, the so-called “peaceful” demonstrations were not enough to oust the sitting government in Damascus. Dr. Assad stayed put. The street demonstrations in both Der’ah and Homs transmogrified into a full-blown insurrection complete with Islamist fanatics, foreign mercenaries and, even direct assistance from NATO countries. Some of you might remember the “Shpionshiffe” Merkel sent to the coastline of Turkey in order to monitor the movements of the SAA to help the terrorists to destabilize Syria.
I don’t believe the U.S. will follow that program for several reasons. The first is that Gulf nations which had the ability to fund the arrival of tens of thousands of mercenaries to fight alongside the Syrian terrorists are no longer on speaking terms and are unlikely to try their hand again at regime change. Both Saudi Arabia and Qatar are at odds with one another over terrorism support and relations with Iran. The scenario in Venezuela is distant in both geography and politics. If Elliott Abrams thinks he’s going to get a repeat of the disastrous intervention in Venezuela, he is in for a tough awakening.
Add to this the prospect of another insurrection against a sitting president when that president has the support of the Russian Federation. Again, Abrams would be foolish not to consider again the disgraceful failure of the U.S. under Obama to effectuate a clean ouster of Dr. Assad. It would be even more ignominious for the U.S. to fail in a country located well within the borders of the Monroe Doctrine, like Venezuela.
We must also remember that most Latin American countries are loath to invite the U.S. to invade a nation in South America. Memories of the tragic death of Salvador Allende in Chile, with the blood-stained hands of the United States all too visible, remain a formidable disincentive for any Latin American president, even Bolsinaro, to contemplate accommodation with Washington. Other incidents of Yanqui involvement include Cuba, Mexico and Nicaragua. The U.S. simply cannot afford another debacle in its own backyard. Supporting the CONTRAS was egregious enough in Nicaragua, what with the surreptitious Iranian deal-making that brought the U.S. into international disrepute; imagine the fallout if the U.S. were to engage the services of something like FARC to help topple President Maduro. But, FARC is in the Maduro camp. There is no Saudi Arabia or Qatar to finance the arrival of religious fanatics from the four corners of the world to help to unseat the legitimate president of Venezuela. Elliott Abrams is looking into Nietsche’s darkest abyss. And it’s staring back at him.
Maduro is clearly feeling better. His Constituent Assembly has ordered Guaido’s immunity removed on the recommendation of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. It is obvious the upstart Yanque stooge is going to be arrested finally for treason. The U.S. has repeatedly warned Maduro that arresting Guaido would cross a red line. Abrams has said it. So has Bolton. And so have Pence and Pompeo. Yet, it appears the Americans have talked themselves, once again, into a corner. With all sanctions imposed on Venezuela, what is there left for Washington to do? Invasion? Surgical strikes on infrastructure? They did all that in Syria and where did that get them? In Libya, the Americans nihilistically bombed the country into pure devastation, destroying the nation with the highest standard of living in all Africa. Hillary Clinton, shrieked with joy after telling the world that Qaddafi was dead. And now, the Yanquis, and their miserable frog and limey allies are trying to pick up the pieces of one of history’s most reprehensible acts of political gluttony. The U.S. cannot afford another disaster like that. Or can it?
Oh, Europe will be aghast at the arrest of Guaido. The Europeans will pontificate and self-congratulate themselves for their own civility. They will tsk-tsk at Mr. Maduro, who, just like Dr. Assad, will blow his nose at the mentally corrupt hypocrites, like Macron, May and Merkel, all of them, descendants of the European barbarians who colonized the world with their toxic philosophies of greed and rapine – the same doctrines which led to the infamous creation of that metastatic, cancerous tumor known to my readers as the Zionist Entity.
Maduro stands with the Palestinian people. That should be reason enough for well-meaning countries to stand up and fight to keep him in power.
Note to readers: Until the Russians sell the S-400 to Turkey and Turkey begins to receive and deploy the systems, little will happen in Syria. There is simply a scarcity of news. .
Mu’ammar Al-Qaddaafi, protected by his all-female security force, frowns at the cameras in a photo taken during some official military event in Tripoli, Libya. His days were numbered once Russia and China abstained in the UNSC vote on Resolution No. 1973 which blessed a NATO assault on Libya’s sovereignty.
(Photo: Times of Malta) Qaddaafi was executed by a gang of slimy, ignorant thugs who arranged to have a teenage boy pull the Great Leader’s own sidearm and shoot him in the head. This made Hillary Clinton, a war criminal, ecstatic when she said: “We came, we saw…….he died” followed by her cackling laughter.
If Trump’s administration has its way in Venezuela, you can substitute Nicolas Maduro’s face for the Libyan leader’s. This is what the civilized West is best at doing.
On March 17, 2011, a short time before the beginning of the crisis in Syria, the United Nations Security Council entertained votes on Resolution No. 1973 which permitted a coalition of UN nations to intervene in the post-Arab Spring riots in Libya in order to purportedly contain Qaddaafi’s military and protect civilian life. Some of you might find the very notion of British concern for civilian life to be somewhat farcical – yet, that is exactly what David Cameron, another war criminal, was espousing at that time.
Russia, China, India, Germany and Brazil abstained. These countries with the exception of Germany, the backbone of the BRICS alliance, were to learn only later that their disengagement would result in the utter destruction of an entire Arab nation; and worse, the nation with the highest standard of living in all Africa! :Putin would never forget the sleazy, unctuous and sociopathic manner by wihich the NATO countries snookered him and China into abstaining instead of using their veto power. This would not be repeated again as everybody now knows with regard to Syria and, most certainly, with regard to Venzuela.
Your editor is no admirer of Qaddaafi. And, he is also no admirer of Maduro. Qaddaafi’s vicious thugs killed my old professor, Dr. ‘Amr Al-Naami, an Ibaadite Muslim, after he visited his native Libya to be with his ailing mother. They tortured him to death. He taught me Islamic theology at the University of Michigan and I will never forget his kindness and sense of humor. And if there is anything I can’t abide, it’s British and French intervention tarted up as some kind of humanitarian effort designed to help the helpless. It just sounds so bereft of credibility that the moment I hear those Etonian accents or the perfumed dialect of the French, I head for cover. As the Iranians say: “It smells of British”. بوي بريطانياءي . Whenever a deal sounds too good to be true or when someone is vying for your favor with greasy promises, it is normal to say it smells of British.
Today, crestfallen neo-conservative clowns who had their taste of defeat served up heartily in Syria, are looking around for another way they can use other people’s children to militarily invade a troubled country. Putin knows this very well. Putin’s security and intelligence services have, doubtlessly, caught on to the method that was used in Syria to oust Dr. Assad and which is today being resurrected in an effort to control oil-rich Venezuela. Whatever the case may be, Russia is no longer going to play along with these crooked schemes.
The usurper, Juan Guaido, a gringo stooge if ever there was such a creature, is poised to return to Caracas very soon after visiting Brazil. The Western MSM has raised the possibility of his arrest suggesting that that might result in even more confusion and disturbances. We agree. Given the fact that the U.S. and its NATO allies are following the same script as that of Syria, we can expect injected terrorists working to create the impression that the Venezuelan army is shooting at peaceful and unarmed civilian protesters. In Der’ah, it was the same with American-supported snipers shooting at unarmed protesters to make it appear the government’s security forces were oppressing the people. This is where the army, riven by false stories of complicity with the establishment, would revolt and turn against the legitimate government.
Words like “embattled”, “unpopular” and “beleaguered” are already appearing in the MSM with the same frequency as that of Dr. Assad. Fake news dominates the narrative. Why, at the Tienditas Bridge linking Venezuela and Colombia, the MSM reported that the Venezuelan Army was blocking “desperately-need aid to the starving masses”. What a joke. RT exposed this hoax to a news-hungry audience by noting, after visiting the bridge, that the truck containers blocking it were on the Colombian side – not on the Venezuelan. Also, the RT reporters on “Watching the Hawks” knew that the blocking containers were placed there by the Colombians to prevent smugglers from using the bridge as a route to the north.

Expect more fake news and coordinated lying from the NYT, WP, WSJ, Fox News and the rest of those fiction-spewing oracles selling themselves off as news sources.
Russia is ready for all this because its planners and analysts have substantial experience in spotting choreographed propaganda. The most laughable part of all this is that Donald Trump and his intellectually lazy daughter, Ivanka, will probably believe their own propaganda since they only watch Fox News for their daily briefings.
HAMA AND IDLIB:
Even though Russia knows today that Erdoghan is a pathological liar, they are insisting on holding off the anticipated Syrian Army offensive in South Hama and Idlib fearing a literal bloodbath once all the artillery and air power is deployed. As of today, 150,000 Syria Army troops are arrayed against what is mostly the HTS (Alqaeda and Jabhat Al-Nusra). Syria Army officers are reportedly champing at the bit to start the offensive but are aware that Russia is holding off what would be the final onslaught to eradicate the criminal terrorist presence in Syria. Even Iran, I am told, is pushing for a more aggressive policy on Idlib.
The SAA is presently repelling constant probing attacks by Nusra, Kataa`ib Al-‘Izza and the Turkistaan Party. In every instance, the terrorists have been thwarted and mercilessly punished. The main axes of their attacks are Khaan Shaykhoon, Dayr Sunbul, Bdaamaa, Al-Masaasina, Al-Jeesaat, Al-Lataamina, Al-Arba’een, Latmeen, Al-Huwayz, Teebat Al-Imaam. In each instance, the terrorists try to bring the SAA out of its fixed positions in attempts to inflict casualties on it. So far, almost no SAA soldier or member of any allied militia has been injured, much less killed.
It was reported today that another probing attack took place in Hama Province which was not only repelled, but, the SAA inflicted on the aggressors what were described by Wael as “unacceptable losses”. Be patient, my friends. It has to come sooner than later.
Turk psychopath, Recep Tayyip Erdoghan, has verbally attacked China for its aggressive policies towards that country’s Uigher population. Turk Foreign Ministry spokesman, Hami Aksoy called China’s treatment of the Uighers: “a great shame for humanity.” Ankara also accused Beijing of killing the Uigher poet, Abdurrahim Heyit, while he was in state custody. Words such as “genocide” have been bandied about in several Turk tirades over the treatment of ethnic Turks living in Xinjiang Province in the West of China. Accusations, largely not denied by the Chinese, have included “concentration camps”, “indoctrination camps” and “forcible measures”. The Chinese have responded to the charges with arguments going to “controlling terrorism” and tamping down militancy, the same issues with which Turkey has to deal in its never-ending propaganda war against the PKK. And without saying so, the Chinese pointed indirectly at Turkey’s criminal support of terrorists in both Syria and Iraq. Let’s not forget that ISIS descended upon Mosul from Turkey.
Your editor is always amused by open hypocrisy. Erdoghan, who has promoted militant Islamism in Syria; given haven to some of the world’s most prolific decapitationists; armed and fed whole hoards of crypto-retardates from the Arab World’s cesspools of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE, is now pointing fingers at a country which is also, like Syria, locked in a battle to the death with radical, global Islamism. I am laughing as I write this post.
The so-called poet, Heyit, was shown to be alive by Chinese state media 2 days ago, thus, kiboshing Turkish blowhard Erdoghan’s erroneous claim that he was dead. The physical appearance of Uighers resembles those of Mongol tribesmen.
NORTH HAMA AND SOUTHERN IDLIB:
Al-Khuwayn Town: On February 12, 2019, the SAA repelled another boring attempt to infiltrate its lines in Southeast Idlib as the terrorists of Nusra received a complete drubbing by drones, artillery and snipers. According to Wael, the number of rodents confirmed killed was 3 with scores injured.
Al-Janaabira Town: Also on February 12, the SAA confirmed the destruction of a row of fortifications after grubs from Kataa`ib Al-‘Izza attacked an SAA position with machine guns in South Hama Province. The terrorists reportedly performed some peekaboo maneuver trying to persuade the Syrian troops into moving out of their defensive positions, but, to no avail. We have no detailed information about rodent casualties although trucks used to carry the dead and wounded were spotted in the aftermath of the fighting.
Khaan Shaykhoon: On February 15, 2019, the SAA annihilated 4 HQs of Nusra (HTS) along with a row of revetments along the eastern side of the Ghaab Valley, Syria’s Bekaa, near the towns of Al-Huwayz and Al-Huwayja. Spotters reported 4 rodents killed with many wounded.
More fighting was reported in Waadi Al-Dawraat east of Al-Lataamina; at Al-Sukayk east of Khaan Shaykhoon; Al-Tuwayna where the SAA deployed Katyusha rockets to obliterate an entire nest of rodents belonging to the Al-Hizb Al-Turkistaani.

It appears that Russia is still trying to get Erdoghan on board. He won’t budge and won’t be seen attacking his fellow Islamist murderers.
Dayr Qaaq: The young men in the photo saluted the Syrian Army’s special operations tactical group for their release from the grip of the noisome filth of Nusra. They were hostages of Abu Muhammad Al-Jawlaani and his Turk enablers. The operation took place near Al-Baab where these young men, who refused to serve in any terrorist group, were tortured and brainwashed for months. According to Monzer, they all begged for the opportunity to exact revenge by enlisting in the Syrian Army.
Al-Arba’een: The Syrian Army received intelligence from MI about a grouping of terrorist rodents from Kataa`ib Al-‘Izza which was attempting to attack an SAA strongpoint to the north of this suburb of Hama. The captain commanding the SAA unit was quick to react and ordered 4 T-72 tanks equipped with the Saraab-2 anti-TOW system to confront the rodents. All of this took place while SAA artillery targeted the rats to soften them up and cause a disruption in their discipline. It was a complete success as the terrorists left 6 carcasses while carrying off their wounded. The dead rodents were all foreigners and did not have papers stuffed in their cargo pockets. One of the carcasses had a documents in Urdu, the language of Pakistan.
N. Maharda Area: Another rodent attack with machine guns from the axis of Al-Jaisa toward SAA positions was drowned in a hailstorm of artillery fire that left 2 rodents dead. As an added bonus, the SAA visually confirmed the destruction of several terrorist fortifications. The rodents were identified:
Safwaan Hussayn Al-‘Amood
Muhammad ‘Umar Siraaj-Al-Deen
Qal’at Al-Madheeq: This is in the area of North Suqaylabiyya. An attack was mounted by Kataa`ib Al-‘Izza on SAA positions which resulted in a complete destruction of the cockroaches. The Syrian Army used tanks and delivered the final blow with APCs which delivered a platoon of infantry who engaged the terrorists in gunfire resulting in the confirmed deaths of 3 rats. 7 rodents were taken prisoner and are warbling elegantly for the Air Force Intelligence interrogators.
Al-Habeet: This is Nusra territory in South Idlib. Vague reports of heavy fighting with scores of snakes killed or injured. The fight is ongoing.
The Syrian First Lady, Asmaa Al-Assad, underwent surgery last Sunday, January 27, 2019, at the Damascus Military Hospital. The First Lady was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. She recovered very quickly after the surgery and was photographed greeting the parents of Syria’s martyrs.
VENZUELA: Will Maduro please get the Supreme Court in Caracas to lift Guaido’s legislative immunity? This traitor must be arrested and brought to justice on the grounds of sedition and treason. I am aware that Maduro has not been successful for the Venezuelan Republic, yet, he remains the president and nobody should be allowed to simply declare themselves president by virtue of colonialist and imperialist forces. Sadly, I do not believe Russia to be as committed to Maduro as she is to Dr. Assad. I could be wrong since word is leaking out that a Russian security team has taken position around Maduro and that Russia is working to back him diplomatically and politically. I will know everything is fine when I see Cuban soldiers coming to his aid.
Look familiar? The only difference is that this terrorist is in Caracas, Venezuela, while the other rodents started out in Der’ah, Syria. All provoked by the U.S. with the same motive.
Don’t you just love the platitudes as they cloyingly envelop your senses with syrupy refrains about “the people”, “democracy”, “liberation”, “fairness”, “transparency” and the rest of the gobbledegook spewing out of the maws of professional hypocrites and liars? Gee, I thought the Americans would finally realize that their little frolic in Syria was a miserable failure. Even Britain, the world’s most renowned politically scoundrel-laden nation, should have noted by now that its own policies in Syria came a cropper. So, if the technique flopped in Syria, why would it succeed in Venezuela?
It won’t. Punkt.
And wasn’t American Vice President, Mike Pence, now enlivened by the election of fellow Evangelical, the Brazilian buffoon, Jaire Bolsonaro, just pitifully inarticulate as he drummed up what support he could for the “revolt” in Caracas? As it turned out, he didn’t drum up very much of anything for his mini-coup in Venezuela. The Mexican government stood on principle and refused to denounce President Maduro. Even the EU did not take a clear position asking only for another election which would please Washington. Russia and China, even Turkey, elected to support the only legitimate government of Venezuela which has an ambassador at the U.N.
I am going to give some advice to Mr. Maduro: Arrest Juan Guaido for seditiion and treason. He will be found guilty because his wrongdoing is filmed in the light of day. He must then be executed, cremated and his ashes strewn on the surface of the Orinoco River. These are the wages of treason and collaboration with a foreign government. I do not recommend having him assassinated only because I think such things are wrong inherently and might create an aura of martyrdom/saintliness about the wretched backstabber. No, let the legal institutions take care of Mr. Guaido.
The parallels between the effort to oust Dr. Assad in Syria and what is transpiring in Venezuela are stunning. Once again we have the media in the West uniformly denouncing the “autocratic” president of the nation. There are outright allegations of election fraud; Supreme Court corruption; dazzling analyses of economic ruin by know-nothings who never bothered to factor in American connivance in the destruction of the Venezuelan infrastructure. Soon you’ll be reading and hearing words like “besieged”, “embattled”, “hated” with reference to Mr. Maduro; while you will get to hear buzzwords like “freedom fighters”, “rebels” and more folderol to cover up the fact that most of the opposition is just a gaggle of terrorists doing America’s bidding.
Maduro must speak to Dr. Assad who will enlighten him from his own experiences in Damascus. Maduro must listen carefully to what advice Dr. Assad will give him. In the meantime, he must strengthen his ties to Russia, Iran, Turkey and China. Brazil is no longer a player with this “end-of-days” Zionist cuspidor ruling the country. He must embolden his military commanders and maintain a strict order of ideological conformity to prevent any defections by traitors in critical security posts. While Venezuela is not a “mosaic” nation like Syria, where you have multiplicities of religions and ethnic groups vying for survival or dominance, Venezuela is uniformly Catholic but riven by classical Marxian economic class rivalries which can substitute theoretically for the mess created in Syria by a large minority of anti-minoritarian bigots, i.e. Sunni refuseniks.
But, once again, the parallels are alarming. Substitute Colombia, Peru and Brazil for Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE. The U.S. is still itself scampering alongside its favorite poodle, the U.K. Even France has now thrown in its patented uselessness while Macron is bedeviled by his own opponents, the “Yellow Vests”. The Western World has been chastened by the experience of Syria. I can’t believe they are up to it again.
Nicolas Maduro, in full presidential regalia, flashing a Nixon to us. He has not been the greatest leader of Venezuela. That honor goes to his predecessor, Hugo Chavez. But, he needs to do something radical to change the course of his country’s descent into anarchy.
The army has today declared its loyalty to the government and constitution. But, be careful here. That’s the army that’s known. There may be elements which have been compromised by the CIA, a la Saddam Hussein. Or maybe, we can think of Syria which was at first haunted by the short-lived defections of officers like Hussayn Harmoush and ‘Abdul-Jabbaar Al-‘Ukaydi. The U.S. would have waited until it had its ducks all in a row before inciting this violence. It failed in Syria, to be sure, but, the neo-cons may be trying to redeem themselves in this hemisphere.
Folks, I am very familiar with Venezuela. My uncle from Palestine married a Venezolana about 50 years ago when he and she were students at Florida State University. My uncle, a red-haired Arab with a million freckiles, known as Fred or El-Tigre, (he was a champion tennis player in Caracas at the Altamira Tennis Club) married Aunt Yolanda who got a Ph.D. in Sociology and worked for the government in Caracas at Silencio. I visited them over 5 times and got a good idea about how the country was heading.
As many of you know, Caracas is a typical South American capital. It is separated from the ocean by a wall of mountains which host its major airport at Macatia on the Caribbean side. It is surrounded by mountains, the highest being Avila to which you can travel by the fabulous Teleferico. But as you ascend to the summit of the mountain, you notice that the gap between rich and poor is wide and stark. The rancheros live on the sides of the mountains in abject poverty while the wealthy are packed inside the city or the plush, guarded foothills of the mountains. This disparity is what brought Hugo Chavez to power. It’s a classic study in class warfare befitting a nation now led by Marxists.
If Maduro wants to protect his country and stay in power, he must do this:
Expel all foreign Western journalists or propagandists. All freelance reporters must be assumed spies or terrorism enablers;
He must give China favored nation status and conduct trade with that country in order to bolster the one currency of Venezuela, the Bolivar. A refinery on the Pacific coast would be very attractive to the Chinese;
He must try to bring Russia into a mutual defense pact which the Russians might tweak nervously in order to avoid confrontation with the U.S.;
He must deny the opposition access to the domestic media;
He must coordinate his own security with Russia;
He must study the Syrian model.
He must replace those individuals he appointed to run the petroleum sector. They have been miserable failures. He may want to bring some to trial on charges of corruption or negligence;
He must change his attitude toward the wealthy. While they have been indifferent to the poor since independence, they have moved their money to Florida, but, want to come back and live the lives of utter luxury which they enjoyed before the Bolivarian Revolution.
