    That is great speaking from the Hezbollah fighter. His reaction against Israel and America are justified by the US's geopolitics in the region. I wonder what happened after?

    Aleppo is not closed, they (Syrians) simply recaptured a hill which towers the only road from Hikmah and they're back on right flank of Ramouseh. Basically, those goatfuckers have died for nothing. Going into Aleppo from there is an even worse idea now. Also they've leapfrogged the goatfuckers in Aqrab Souk. Just behind the 1070/Nasr area. http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.168299&lon=37.078857&z=15&m=b&show=/30448167/Aqrab-area-(Souq-al-Jibs)

    It's going to get interesting soon.

    Why don't Hezbollah have Shahed 129 drones from Iran? 2000 missiles would absolutely devastate a few thousand jihadists.

    IRAN aid to Syria have been very limited. i will say no more than 5,000 mercenaries and majority of them not even iranians. Syria but also Russia lacks heavily from attack drones in the conflict ,something that could have done a major difference in the battle field. Attack drones with lazer missiles (similar to hellfire) , will have allowed to hit terrorist right above their heads whenever they group together inside a building.  Russia airforce cannot achieve that level of precision without using much too expensive means ,with too expensive missiles.

    When you go to war , Economy and cost of your weapons is something that cannot be underestimated. it plays a major role. This is why Russia use 99% of the times mostly unguided cheap bombs whenever it bombs terrorist.

    So basically what im saying is that the support Syria receive from Russia and IRAN is limited.
    for economic reasons and political too. ie.. cease of fire with Americans. etc.


    If Russia had developed very cheap ,cost efficient attack drones ,that can fire very cheap guided
    missiles ,that Russia will not mind to be studied by NATO either ,it could significantly help to halt the offensives of the terrorist.  Why?

    - Because drones are more silent. and terrorist are always warned whenever Russia is taking off
    from Latakia by NATO. So terrorist warned before hand by NATO radars in Turkey ,whenever
    Russia airforce is withing minutes to bomb them, so they seek cover and disperse.

    -Drones can be more cost effective than using planes.

    - no human loses ,if drone shut down.

    For example drones can be very useful in times , terrorist start a major offensive. Terrorist
    always start very spread// but when they are inside Syrian army positions ,they end grouped again.  you see a lot those videos of terrorist in the hundreds grouped together taking selfies ,
    hidding in a building. thats the best time for use those attack drones. Russia airforce using
    unguided bombs flying too high is not the most ideal way to deal with the terrorist offensives.

    So a cheap to produce ,lazer guided attack drone that can deal a direct hit ,right on the place terrorist grouped could be the most ideal thing. Such drone does not need to be stealth ,since will only bomb Alqaeda and ISIS. I dont think Russia have low cost attack drones ,that can fight at visual distance of target ,exclusively made to deal with guerrilla in urban warfare like in Syria.

    ‘Kill Russians and Iranians, threaten Assad,’ says ex-CIA chief backing Clinton

    Former CIA deputy director Michael Morell, who supports Hillary Clinton and insists that Donald Trump is being manipulated by Russian President Vladimir Putin, said that Russians and Iranians in Syria should be killed covertly to “pay the price.”

    The top CIA official, who twice served as the acting director of the agency, and worked with Clinton while she was secretary of state, told PBS host Charlie Rose that Iran and Russia should “pay a big price” in Syria – and by that he meant killing them.

    "I ran the CIA now I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton and I want Hillary to kill lots of Russians and Iranians in Syria":https://t.co/Ka7oSby9kk
    — Christoph Germann (@newgreatgame) August 9, 2016

    “When we were in Iraq, the Iranians were giving weapons to the Shia militia who were killing American soldiers,” Morell said. “The Iranians were making us pay a price.”

    You see, Michael Morell is a man of virtue: he calls for death and destruction in proper politesse. Heaven forbid he crack a rude joke.
    — Michael Tracey (@mtracey) August 9, 2016

    “We need to make the Iranians pay a price in Syria, we need to make the Russians pay a price,” he continued.

    When asked if that meant killing Russians and Iranians, Morell fully agreed, qualifying the answer with “covertly.”

    “Tell the world about it, right?” he went on. “You don’t stand up at the Pentagon and say ‘we did this,’ but you make sure they know it in Moscow and Tehran.”

    — Robbie Martin (@FluorescentGrey) August 9, 2016

    Referring to the US-backed rebels in Syria, Morell said he wanted Washington to support them in more aggressive actions, not only against Bashar Assad’s government, but against Iranians and Russians.

    “I’m not advocating assassinating him, I’m advocating going after what he thinks is his power base and what he needs to survive. I want to put pressure on him, I want to put pressure on the Iranians, I want to put pressure on the Russians to come to that diplomatic settlement.”

    The former acting director of the CIA publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton last week through an opinion piece in the New York Times, praising her qualifications as commander-in-chief and calling her rival Donald Trump a threat to national security.

    Yes, I dropped the C-bomb. I don't apologise. When discussing the depths of human trash such as this psychopathic monstrosity, no word can be considered too harsh. I've also had 1.5 bottles of Shiraz and a good few boutique ales at my local public house, so quite frankly I don't care if anyone should take offense. Very Happy

    The war in SYria is far from Over.. Aleppo liberation will NOT be the end of it.
    After the visit of ERdogan to RUssia with Putin , to "restore" relations ,
    he basically ,just played a game and asked all from Russia and gave nothing back
    aside of an Apology for Shutting down the plane . In fact it was said that ERdogan
    in the very same conference of "Friendship" with RUssia , he went as far as reinstate his
    support for the Tatars in Crimea fighitng Moscow with support of kiev and washinton.
    And also he denied any rumor about Russia warning them of a coup in progress...

    SO many experts believe Erdogan visit to Russia ,was more a show to Blackmail US
    and Europe. To try to get a better deal from them.

    http://russia-insider.com/en/erdogan-attacks-syria-crimea/ri16006


    "No agreement on a single Russian political or security priority (on st petersburg Putin -Erdogan meeting). (Erdogan) His real audience was in Washington, Berlin, and Brussels." Erdogan is a bazaar wheeler-dealer who strives to wriggle himself into the best possible position both as the Sultan of Turkey and the leader of the Sunnisphere, while manipudividing the Russian and Frankish kaffirs against each other. The bugger should be wearing a red fez and an eye patch, a la Barbary pirate Wink


    Combining all things together. All this looks like the whole coup was an ERdogan inside job ,
    nothing more than show, than a Circus , something that erdogan did to its own Government
    to justify ,to take full control of his Government and become a dictator.

    What all this means , is that ERdogan Policies with Syria have not changed not even
    by any degree.  HE will continue aiding ISIS and ALqaeda.  But if the Syrian army goes and clear western aleppo and central city too and IDLIB.  ERdogan can simply order its Army
    to Invade Northen Syria to push back the Syrian army. Forcing Russia to come to the aid of Syria.

    NATO is blending US and Europeans special forces with Syrian Kurds and replacing all territories
    that ISIS have with theirs. So the war is far form over.. could last 10 years. And Russia biggest weapon against Turkey , its sanctions cannot be removed or at least not completely and Russia needs to delay as much as possible any business cooperation with Turkey.  Russia will do fine to dissuade Russian citizens from traveling to Turkey , because they could be used as human shields in case Turkey start a war with Russia and Syria.  

    It is time for RUssia to pressure China and help them with Syria , because NATO is only increasing its forces covertly in Syria and the whole coup in Turkey looks more like an inside job
    of Erdogan on its own nation to fully take control of its country. This whole anti erdogan coup
    could be a fake show , only used for Turkey justify "capture" US nuclear weapons. and Americans have an excuse for losing them to ERdogan. And use Erdogan control of nukes
    to pressure Russia in Syria. and help Americans Neocons get their nukes in the real hands they always wanted them to be.  So that way ,at least to the American people , Obama administration will not be accused of supplying nuclear weapons to Erdogan ,since they will claim "they lost them" .  So people need to be ready for a second Inside Job Coup , that will
    end with ERdogan capturing US nukes ,with a thumbs up from NATO. Later the history of how
    those old nukes were not very protected from being hacked will show up ,allowing Turkey to justify having nuclear weapons.  This is how i see all will be played.  US ,transfer of its nuclear weapons to Turkey , using fake staged coups as cover.

    The only thing that will stop the war in Syria is a new President in US ,that stop it ,maybe trump? if he is genuine , or that Russia continues exposing Americans aid to terrorism , and they continues defeating every terrorist in Syria with very minimal forces. while NATO spending a lot in the fight. China entry in the war will only makes Things far easier for Russia. Because will give NATO memories of their failed Korean war ,so is unfortunate they are not there.

    Turkish FM: Turkey and Russia agree Syria should have administration allowing everyone to practice beliefs freely

    11.08.2016    Turkey, todays headlines    

    ANKARA

    Turkey and Russia agree that Syria should have an administration which allows everyone to practice their beliefs freely, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Thursday.

    In remarks made in an interview to the Turkish broadcaster NTV, Cavusoglu outlined Turkey’s cooperation with Russia to resolve the Syrian conflict.

    "The situation in Syria is getting worse day-by-day," he said. "We always say only a political solution [in Syria] can be permanent, in terms of not hurting civilians, separating moderate opposition from terrorist groups and [ensuring] humanitarian aid."

    He said cooperation between Russia and Turkey "on politics, military and intelligence will pave the way for us to put our relations on a solid ground and help resolve problems in Syria.”


    He said the next Syrian regime should be all inclusive. "We think the same as Russia on Syria's future. The next administration in Syria should be inclusive and cover everyone.” He added the next administration in Syria "should be a secular one".

    "We are on the same page with Russia from old times that Syria should have an administration under which everyone can live with their beliefs freely," he said.

    During President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to St. Petersburg Tuesday, Turkey and Russia agreed to establish a joint committee on Syria; members of the Turkish committee travelled to Russia on Thursday. The committee consists of military and intelligence officers and diplomats from both Russia and Turkey.

    Syria’s five-year civil war has resulted in more than 500,000 deaths, according to Cavusoglu. Moscow and Ankara support different sides in the conflict, with Turkey deeply opposed to Bashar al-Assad’s regime, of which Russia is a major backer.

    Cavusoglu also said the U.S. was cooperating with Turkey on the issue of Fetullah Gulen, the U.S.-based preacher Turkey accuses of plotting the July 15 coup attempt.

    “We see the cooperation signals on this issue,” he said, adding that a delegation from the U.S. Justice Department would come to Turkey soon.

    “After that we are waiting for a high-level visit,” the minister said. “After the extradition file is prepared, we will go to the U.S. with the justice minister to repeat our demand with this evidence, files and information.”

    About two military attaches at the Turkish embassy in Athens fleeing to Italy following their recall to Turkey in the wake of the failed coup, Cavusoglu confirmed the incident.

    He said Col. Ilhan Yasitli and Col. Halis Tunc left for Italy by car and ferry with their families on the night of Aug. 6. Turkey’s ambassador to Rome was making inquiries with Italian authorities about their possible extradition, a diplomatic source told Anadolu Agency.

    This is literally mind blowing. Nope there will not be a "National Coalition" apparatus in Syria, because otherwise the Kurds will have the same demands than those who are abetted by Turkey and the gang.

    Erdogan will be eliminated. and by his own American friends. or by Europeans intelligence services. it will be a matter of time. If there is something Americans do not tolerate is insubordination to their Authority and leaders they cannot fully control and that are popular.

    SO i predict the "honey moon" between Russia and Turkey will end soon. Already
    Erdogan called the first shots in St petersburg demanding Assad to step down and by saying
    they support Crimean tatars opposition to moscow. So how insolent and arrogant is Erdogan
    that came to Russia to basically insult Russia in their own territory. Wondering what will have
    happened if Russia arrest ERdogan in St Petersburg for his connection to ISIS. For sure Erdogan will have people backing him in Turkey , but i dont think that they could be any worse than him.

    Zarif Visits Ankara, Turkish-Russian-Iranian Tripartite Scenario in Syria ‘More Likely’


    Ankara and Tehran’s announcement on Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visiting the Turkish capital on Friday raised even more speculation of a Russian-Turkish-Iranian tripartite alliance surfacing. Zarif is expected to be discussing bilateral ties shared among the two countries.

    The theory of an alliance being forged was first fired up when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan paid his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin a visit in Saint Petersburg, washing away months of piling tensions, and resolving to a set of decisions on Russian-Turkish cooperation in Syria.




    Many Russian blocs had promoted the makings of such an alliance concerning the Syria crisis after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made a call to Erdogan last July. In the phone call Erdogan expressed anticipation towards cooperation and coordination with Iran in Syria.

    On Thursday, the first session of Russian-Turkish mechanism for coordination was held in Saint Petersburg, after being approved by the earlier Erdogan-Putin summit.

    Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, said that his country is open and prepared to look into a military offensive launched in cooperation with Russia against ISIS.

    Ankara wants Moscow deal with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan along with its arms division the People’s Protection Units, anchored in northern Syria. Turkey considers the Kurdish movement terror-centered and no different than ISIS.

    Turkish Ambassador to Russia Umit Yardim hinted that some waivers concerning the Turkish stance on Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria might be given away by Ankara.

    Turkish media outlets cited the ambassador as saying that Ankara is in the process of considering sharing the platform of peace talks with the Assad regime.

    The development of the Russian-Turkish relations poses no threat to the West. Boosting dialogue for the sake of peace and stability should be a response to speculations on the issue, Turkish Ambassador to Russia, Umit Yardim, told a news conference on Thursday.

    “Our relations with Russia pose no threat to anyone else, our relations are valuable as such,” the ambassador said.

    “We have always said that it is necessary to develop relations. We have never evaluated them in terms of the risks for the West.”

    “The Western media say that this dialogue will allegedly imply a lot of negative things for the West,” he said.

    “The development of our relations will be the best answer to these speculations. Our aim is consolidating peace and stability.”

    Syria war demonstrates Russia's lack of precision strike capability. If this war happens in Russia, Russia would be in big trouble.

    That's not Russian drone footage and not Russian bombing. It looks nothing like all the previous Russian released footage.
