they can plan everything they want , but the whole thing will be a failure ,as long they dont have
control of the Airspace over Raqqa , Syria airforce and Russia airforce can bomb any illegal military base there ,or any air defenses. And Washington DC ,neither NATO ,neither Turkey will
have any Legal ground to stop Syria from taking it. NATO will never deploy in full in any zone they do not control its airspace and could be bombed. So All Syria have to do is capture their most important zones first.. like Major cities closer to the coast including Aleppo and IDlib ,then later close the border with Turkey after that , Raqqa will have to be supplied from Kurds zones and if Kurds does not recognize Syria territorial integrity ,Syria can then bomb any vital infrastructure of them , encircle it permanently forever ,and anything that enters or leave RAqqa will have to pass through Syrian army check points. ,in essence creating a Failed Sunni
State that will have to depend humanitarian aid its civilians for a life time.. the west will have "fun" with that. They maintaining 200,000 sunnis with food ,in a place that business is impossible.
Syria can also shut down any foreign plane or airport created in RAQQA ,essentially isolate RAqqa from the outside world. In the end they will see their Independence project is not working and will abandon it. As soon Syria controls its major cities ,and the only thing left is Raqqa , then it can start to pressure NATO and encircle RAqqa and make it very difficult for them. And NATO ,neither kurds will have no international legal ground to create any independence in Syria.
As long Russia is there ,and Syrian army recover its most important cities in full ,
and become stronger and stronger and stronger ,it can then move to encircle RAqqa and isolate it. It will be actually better that way ,since they will not have to feed them ,the west will have to do it.
So CNN and NATO can go to hell ,they will lose every territory ,their backed Rebel terrorist stole in Syria . And Kurds will discover will have to return to dialogue with Syria if wants to have a chance to survive ,because Turkey is killing them in Syria and IRAQ. The whole thing have no chance to work as long Russia backups Syria ,and continue gaining territory and they have the last word in Syria airspace.
All said ,for now Russia and Syria should focus in the major cities ,to retake them 100%,while keeping an eye on RAQQA ,to reject any claim of independence. and when Raqqa is the only thing left to capture , encircle it and if NATO attacks Syria ,close the airspace to them. The key is to do things one step at a time. You first move close to RAqqa ,and then bomb any supplies to it ,effectively isolating it.. then later block Kurds from any supply if they refuse to give RAqqa, then Kurds will only have one place for trading and supply.. that is no less than Turkey. lol
So kurds going again Syria will put them in full dependence of TUrkey who is exterminating them. What will be important is for IRAQ to get full control of Syria border ,that will make things even more harder ,since Kurds will be unable to resupply from IRAQ. or sell its stolen oil either .
