    They can release these shiny infographs for all they want, it still doesn’t disguise, no, it actually confirms that they’re fighting a losing war. Because they used to control Mosul, and basically the entire Sunni triangle. And now they’re making shiny infographs of some rearguard battle near shithole city and backwateristan province, their last holdouts.

    Even the Germans still made propaganda newsreels of their occasionally successful counterattacks up till april 1945. It still didn’t disguise that an army that once stood from Brest on the Atlantic to Stalingrad on the Wolga was now fighting in the heart of Germany.

      They simply and honestly report from all sides. Mainly from the Syrian and Iraki army , but also sometimes also from the Al-Qaida, FSA, Kurdish , ISIS and illegal US coalition when the latter make statements.

    I believe it because the last attack was coordinated with the US who supported the lSIS assault with their ground missiles they launched from Al-Tanf. The PMU reported a huge number of dead as a result of the US ground missiles. This was clearly done to prevent the road (passes through Al Tanf) connecting Syria to Iran (though Irak) from being liberated, hence the strong Iraki side had to be weakened, according to Israeli proclaimed whishes of annihilition or at least weakening of these countries .

      There is still not a shred of evidence that this US missile strike took place. Where are the photos and videos? Where are photos of the dud rocket rounds with US markings on them? The PMU likely was surprised by ISIS, took a beating, and blamed the US to cover up its mistakes.

        I admit your point, you may be right.
