Syriana Analysis explains the battle for East Ghouta, shedding light on the history of the war in the area and the imminent battle that is coming in the upcoming days.[/i]
That was a good, short overview of the past and developing situation in Ghouta.
Watching that video led me to finding this interview from about a year ago by 21st Cent. Wire with alleged western ex-sf soldier "Patrice." So, as it's told, Patrice was in Aleppo in 2011 to pursue a business opportunity when the Syrian festivities kicked off in earnest. He attempted two dashes for the Turkish border and was nearly killed each time. So he ended up stuck and under siege back in Aleppo. He had no choice but join and fight with local, loyalist forces against the rogues gallery we're all familiar with, al-Nusra, al-Zinki, etc.
His account is very detailed, enough so to enhance credibility, imo. He comes across as an emotionally controlled person, but there is still a gravitas in his retelling, particularly in what he says at the end. This also lends credibility to the story. But, idk, this is a year old, perhaps it has since been discredited. Frankly I hope not because I found his observations and the perspective he formed from this experience to be very interesting.
Anyhow, if you were to listen at least a bit of it, could you try to place his accent? I really can't. It sounds like it could be a combination of things.
The classic story of Tourist Businessman that was caught in the middle of a warzone.. LOL
For sure he was doing very good business indeed ,selling TOW missiles to Alqaeda to fight Syrian army.
What a load of crap.. give me a break.. The real war did not began in Aleppo.. but in homs.. major civil
armed and unarmed unrest across all Syria began in March 2011..but it was very low violence ,not armies invasion
until that time.. by second half of 2011 ,a major city in Homs was captured.. for first time.. and CNN was "accidentaly TRapped" there.. how they did so many reports accusing Assad of warcrimes.. 24 hours and selling a story how "civilians" took weapons to "defend themselves".. but there was French special forces in Syria as early as 2011. that Putin had to negotiate its release in secret when Syria captured the town in change for no more interference of france in Syria. This caused the secret visit of the ambassador of France to syria ,months after they closes their embassy.. Interesting eh ? and CNN was providing not only propaganda ,but used as a shield (So syrian army can't bomb the main logistic hubg of communications and satellite )to the terrorist command center in Homs. And then Aleppo capture was the second wave of attacks on Syria. that happened second half of 2012. not 2011..
So he is lying big time.. he could not be "Trapped in Syria" in Aleppo in 2011 ,because that city was not
under siege at that time.. So if he joined the terrorist /peaceful head choppers in 2011 because aleppo.
then he did it completely voluntary on its own.. because he wanted.
in march 2011..- Syria protest began..
Second half of 2011 - a major city in homs was captured and recaptured by Syria army.
second half of 2012 half of Aleppo main city falls.. after two waves of thousands of terrorist , one from Jordan border
and another from Turkey invades Syria. the one that came from Jordan was used as distraction.. to attack damascus.
the one that came from Turkey attacked Aleppo.
in 2013 -2015 northen Syria (non kurdish zones) falls, like Raqqa and Idlib.
To thousands of terrorist crossing the border from tTurkey thanks to Erdogan "help" to "liberate" Syria.
and then Idlib invasion was the event that made Russia to interfere. to help Assad , reverse
Turkey /NATO criminal aggression to syria and aid of terrorism.
There is a french Journalist who was physically present in syria ,since the 2011 uprising began.and he was
able to witness/participate in the negotiations of Russia and France for the release of their special forces ,hundreds of them captured in Homs ,that were aiding terrorist to hold the city. and were kicked from there after Syrian army
re-capture the city. So since 2011 ,the Syrian conflict was a NATO invasion ,NATO-Turkey aggression.
and this have not changed today.. Turkey ,NATO nuclear powers and israel ,Jordan have been at war with Syria
dismembering it.. what is different now 7 years later. is that ,, Russia had to use force and diplomacy to force erdogan and NATO to negotiate the right of the existence of Syria and the reduction of their initial goals of total destruction of Syria state. So Russia saved Syria from total disintegration.. by Alqaeda and ISIS allied with NATO forces.
and managed with the use of diplomacy ,sanctions of turkey and force of its airforce to make them negotiate for
a bit less genocide and criminal aggression and be happy to just fight for partial partition of Syria instead.
