    I am eagerly anticipating to see their performance. Their words and tough language so far have been astounding.

    If their combat results are even 5% of their verbal valor then USA does not stand a chance.

    They have been "preparing" for years already, it will surely be a curb stomp battle once it finally starts after all this time....

    This part is incorrect. Iran did not support Saddam Hussein, but Iraq was never alone against the US, even if you're talking about the period right after 2003 US invasion. While situation in Iraq is complicated, Iran was fully backing it the whole time and today it enjoyes greater influence in Iraq than ever. US after invasion basically disbanded Iraqi military and the casualties Americans and their Al-Qaeda stooges received were mostly (if not all) from Iranian backed Iraqi shiite forces, those under command of Ayatollah Al-Sistani and alike. Today's Iraqi popular mobilisation forces are influenced by the same figure(s) and backed by Iran, just like Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba and Kata'ib Hezbollah (Iraqi Hezbollah).


    As for Lebanese or the "original" Hezbollah proving itself - they have already done so on many occasions both in Lebanon and Syria - Al-Qusair, Jabroud, Al-Zabadani in Syria and Arsal in Lebanon were liberated almost exclusively thanks to them which meant life or death for Syria at that point. On top of that Hezbollah proved itself all over Syria including North-West Syria/Aleppo/Palmyra/South-East Syria + Southern Lebanon/Beqqa valley in Lebanon.

    Being a militia force and not a real army, Hezbollah still displayed a high level of military prowess in each and every battle they took part in, something that most today's armies are not capable of. Other than that, what do you think is holding Lebanon safe from Israel, a couple of Lebanese soldiers in M113 AFVs that are getting kidnapped by AlQaeda and ISIS? Without Hezbollah Lebanon would be another Jordan today - completely dominated (if not directly militarily conquered) by Israel. Israel war against Lebanon Hezbollah alone in 2006 ended up in Israel getting their butts kicked like never before, forcing them to retreat and not look back, not at least until they take down Syria and break apart the Iran/Iraq/Syria/Lebanon/Hezbollah axis of resistance.

    Another argument is Ansarallah aka the Houthis in Yemen that have taken over nearly whole of Yemen at one point and are still holding ground and leading very successful attrition war against everything and everyone.
    The Houthies in Yemen are fighting:
    -Saudi soldiers
    -UAE soldiers
    -French Special Forces
    -US, UK, Israeli jets & Special Forces (denied but there)
    -Sudanese mercenaries
    -S Yemen separatists
    -Hadi followers
    -Republican Guards (Saleh followers)

    Btw groups of Ansarallah fighters were sent to Syria and participated in battles along SAA, mostly to expand their battlefield experience.
    Albeit not so well trained and armed, Ansarallah is Yemen's version of Hezbollah.

    This was all made possible by Iran (IRGC) of course.

    So in conclusion, Hezbollah (Iran) doesn't have to prove anything to anyone.

    Troops can move. Besides, Iraqi/Lebanse Hezbollah has Sunni fighters, Lebanese Hezbollah even has some Christian fighters in its ranks, etc. Militias backed by Iran, while mostly shia and ultimately led by shia leadership always welcomed any groups willing to join the fight against US occupation anywhere. Just a reminder that majority, or about 75% of Syrians (including Syrian Kurds) are Sunni as well. Thus most of the fighting happened in Sunni areas while Shia i.e. Alawite (which is shia branch) dominated regions in Syria, except during the thwarted Al-Qaeda/Turkmen/whatever offensive on Lattakia from Idlib/Jisr al-Sughour direction, remained peaceful for most of the war (Lattakia and Tartous governorates).
    Iran's policy is to stop artificial sectarianism pushed by US/Israel axis i.e. Muslim infighting and unite the Muslim people against common enemy.

    Almost a month ago I said this and it's looks like that's what they intend to do. It's going end fairly quickly many deals are coming.

    Re: Syrian War: News #18
    Post d_taddei2 on Tue May 22, 2018 10:59 am

    With focus on Daraa now on there was mention of Nasib crossing. I said earlier that going after jordian side of Daraa (east) was best options as you can be sure targeting western Daraa Israel would be a problem and right now IS are attacking FSA so FSA are kept busy just now.

    I would imagine that we could see a three prong attack one heading south of Daraa city clearing urban areas and onto the Daraa border crossing point. The second heading south/east towards Nassib taking out umm al mayadin. The third heading East towards M5 cross roads and take sayada. The first and third prong attacks would isolate Nassib and stop reinforcements effectively creating a pocket. Also securing Al ghariyah north of the crossroads (which shouldn't be hard) would help in securing large town of sayada.

    The obvious easy areas to target as well is the almost a pocket area in the north of this eastern area. At busra hariri could close to make a pocket or if they do capture al ghariyah then they could move onto ghariyat ash sharqiyah and al karak making a larger pocket and neither should pose any serious threat with manpower, equipment, and full might of Russian and syrian airforce and there's also russian bomber's and kaliber missiles at disposal but these maybe used to keep the terrorists busy in idilb western Aleppo. But I can't see eastern Daraa being must resistance. Western Daraa is more complicated due to Israeli aggression and support for terrorists and then IS as well. But I would imagine quite a few deals will be done in whole of Daraa"

    "regime bombardment"

    Propaganda rubbish. These "non regime" sources never bother themselves with the slaughter at Raqqah and Fallujah where
    the USA used white phosphorus in addition to saturation bombing of residential quarters. Thus they have zero credibility
    with their bitching about SAA "bombardment".

    Actually, SAA "bombardment" is quite targeted and effective. And civilians always flee from areas with fighting. Trying to
    make this look like some SAA warcrime is grotesque and absurd.

    Location of air attacks which are needed as this is a really nasty fight with very well armed terrorists. Looks like they have no shortage of munitions.

    Hope they get crushed quickly so that the other remaining areas see the light and go for reconciliation, too many non terrorists have already died.

    Then, possibly overlapping, news from Iraq but accurate?

    TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iraqi legislator disclosed that the US is training 8,000 ISIL terrorists in Syria to conduct terrorist operations in Iraq.

    Ferdows al-Awadi was quoted by Soumeriyeh news as saying that the US has plotted to bring ISIL back to Iraq and help it occupy certain parts in Northern and Western territories to wage a new war on the country.

    The Iraqi MP added that Turkey which is one of the most important allies of the US has admitted that "it has proofs and documents showing the US support for the ISIL terrorist group", noting that "the US is training 8,000 ISIL terrorists in Northern Syria as a prelude to conduct terrorist acts in Iraq and Syria".

    Al-Awadi said that based on reports, the US air force is imposing a safe zone for the ISIL at Iraq-Syria borders and is training them.

    In relevant remarks in 2017, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mostafa Izadi announced that the country is in possession of evidence and documents proving Washington's direct support for the ISIL terrorist group.

    "We are facing a proxy warfare in the region as a new trick by the arrogant powers against the Islamic Republic," Izadi said.

    "As the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei) said, we possess documents and information showing the direct supports by the US imperialism for this highly disgusting stream (the ISIL) in the region which has destroyed the Islamic countries and created a wave of massacres and clashes," he added.
