    The 4 "missing" barrels in the center are part of the design, and not empty barrels.

    That's because the international situation is heating up dramatically. There will be a chemical attack in the next couple days, Russia is already blamed for the nerve agent incident in uk and the Haley thing is screaming attack in UN. Bastids won't be happy until the whole world is on fire. Oh yeah, and you can bet ever more draconian sanctions are heading my way.

    Exactly.  They need another chemical false flag, preferably in East Ghouta to try and save their terrorist proxies.   One of the reasons
    that they are fretting so much about East Ghouta falling to the SAA is that a forensic investigation by an invited team of independent
    international specialists can expose the fraud of the original East Ghouta chemical attack.  

    The western sheep will not ask the question as to why the SAA would use chemical weapons when they are winning fast in East Ghouta.  
    The western sheep will swallow all the excrement their precious fake stream media dishes out to them.   For example the UK "nerve agent"
    attack which they blame on Russia without having any evidence that counts (e.g. identity of attackers and details of the attack).   The
    UK regime keeps screeching about a nerve agent being used, but this must be one of the slowest acting nerve agents in history since
    the two individuals (the double agent and his female associate) got poisoned hours before at another location.    As with the Russia
    election meddling crock it does not take much to work the western sheep into a hate lather.

    General Al-Hassan surveying the city, Damascus, that he has played a part in saving and two of his protectors from far away. This is a duty that the Russians are not leaving to locals.

    Apparently in the morning today..
    Russian air defenses have been used to intercept Foreign drones
    near Syria coast.. Looks like NATO /Israel Provocations .


    information comes from saker forums..



    Wael @WaelAlRussi ,.... Moments ago

    Russia air defense systems in #Khmemeim AB #Latakia

    intercepted an unidentified object/s over the sea. 2 missiles were launched.

    9:28 AM – 17 Mar 2018"]


    https://twitter.com/WaelAlRussi/status/975046143414620161

    my best guess is that Americans if they launch a cruise missile attack.. they will need
    to do it right this time..Because it will be humiliating world wide for NATO if all their cruise missiles are intercepted
    by Russia.. So they will need to throw more than a hundreds of Cruise missiles and ballistic missiles , probably two hundreds or even more.. Too saturate Syrian and Russian air defenses...  NATO have some important things to gain from doing this.. Like testing Russia capabilities ,and weakness.. and specially customized cruise missiles or even ballistic missiles and or swarm of drones.. . From their point of view ,The knowledge they can gain from a major scale attack will be invaluable for understanding how to do such attacks on Russia main land .. after US deploy all their 400 missile launchers there.  This does not means they will do it. but that NATO wants to have the knowledge ,how to fight Russia with mass attacks of Cruise missiles and have the option to use such tactics.. at hand..

    it will be useful a map of Russia/NATO warships in mediterranean and red sea.. it could reveal how serious
    is the confrontation.

    Russian Central Election Commission data: 3526 Russians in Syria cast ballots into portable boxes, compared to 4378 in 2016 parliamentary elections. This suggests troops numbers reduction by approx. 20%, despite Putin's 2017 "withdrawal" claims.

    Those numbers include Kitchen operators ,janitors ,civilian doctors , contractors with Russian citizenship , Business Developers , Translators ,journalist ,politicians etc etc etc.. There are also a Russian community living in Syria too..
    that had Russian citizenship.. i saw videos of a few of them.. Russians married with Syrians womens.. etc.
    that had business in Syria ,and could not leave ,for economical reasons ,and because their zones were safer and under protection of Russia . Probably it have to be latakkia were More safer to have a business is. So the real number of military combat soldiers/operators of military hardware have to be in the 2,000 to 2,500.

    Night attack: PMC Wagner routed Jaish al-Islam in Misraba

    According to media reports, Russian volunteers PMC Wagner successfully pushed the terrorists deeper into the boiler in Eastern Guta. Despite the cease-fire agreement with certain militant groups, most of the terrorists continue with fierce resistance to pro-government forces.

    Suppression of the boiler is carried out from several sides.The most acute situation in the east and north, in the area of ​​Al-Rayhan where Jaish al-Islam  causes significant losses to the government side. Terrorists reportedly destroyed several tanks and drones SAA.

    On the night of 18 on 19 March fighters PMC Wagner with pinpoint artillery strikes drove the terrorists from their forward position, thereby releasing the civilians and Syrian soldiers that were surrounded. Thereafter vagnerovtsy pushed the militants and created a convenient springboard for further advance of government forces. As in the storming of Palmyra, Russian volunteers used night vision devices and precision artillery strikes guided by drones.

    Arab media write that without the timely assistance of the PMC Wagner government forces would have been put into a difficult situation in Misraba and in the area of ​​Al-Tal and Satra.

    Russian soldiers from the PMC to help SAA to ensure the safety of humanitarian corridors.

    "The attack on Misrabu was a complete surprise to us, and we are very grateful for the Russian resistance. It was the military aid and Russian soldiers allowed us to recover all the lost positions and be able to continue the offensive, "-Syrian Arab Army media officer.

    ...Russian volunteers PMC Wagner ...

    ...Russian soldiers from the PMC...


    Factually incorrect

    They are not soldiers and they are not volunteers

    Soldiers are members of armed forces and receive normal salary

    Volunteers​ don't work for big fat paychecks, they work for free

    Wagner units are mercenaries, it's literally in the name (PMC)

    Everyone should stop making this dumbass mistake

    All this grooming from western websites where you can't call western mercs mercs... they get sensitive about how much money they get paid to kill people.

    Perhaps they fear US police officers might get jealous about the pay difference in shooting ethnic minorities and take their jobs or something...
