That moment when you cured the cancer

You can call me Al

Bad analogy, you can never cure cancer, but just be in remission.

What about Syphilis ? or something associated with human life styles nowadays.

Congratulations for the Syrian government and people, for liberating various rebel-held areas. The situation must have been very dangerous in Damascus in 2012. Now, people in Damascus could breathe with relief. However, the Syrian government and people should keep their guards. They still need to liberate the Northwestern and Southern Syria and to negotiate with the Kurdis in the Northeastern area.

The war is really close to Bashar’s victory.

I know I sound like a negative twat, but remember the East dessert (West of the Euphrates), Al-Tanf, Idlib + of course East of the Euphrates -> let us agree 60%.


marvellous victory!!

You can call me Al

Come on SF or even a commenter – can we have video of the different stages of retaking of this area.

Pretty please.

The Damscus terrorist tumor was the most dangerous since it threatened the very existance of the Syrian Arab Republic. With Damascus free from the foreign mercenary terrorist cancer the Syrian Arab Army can now dedicate its attention to liberating all of Syria from the Zio/Nazi US foreign invaders and occupiers of Syrian sovereign land.


Deir Ezzor ISIS pocket must be eliminated, and this can be done very fast with strong Russia aerospace force. After this, Syria-Russia has to deal with Turkey (Idbil), USA (Al Tanf, Raqqah and Omar oil fields, kurds puppets), and Israel (Daraa). I do not think Israel-USA-NATO will want to move away by themselves from Syria.


The more Bodybags return to the States & Europe the Sooner it will be Over…Western Folks don’t like to see many Bodybags of their Own…Carefully chosen Targets attacked with small assault groups, can do a LOT of damage…make the Rats leave… their Heist is over… they Failed…no fun, spending their days in Syria for them Psychopaths


They’ve managed to hide the body bags so far. Personnel “die” in accidents and mishaps apparently, but never as a result of enemy action. It is shameful way to treat those dead, even if they are on the wrong side. Even in death their life is simply part of a lie.



Not holding out much hope though, still so much territory, and most of it effectively claimed by foreign states. Good luck Syria!

Empire's Frontiers

The bravery and resilience of the men and women of the Syrian Arab Army is matched only by a few throughout human history.

While marked as an enemy of the imperial order in Washington, they’re a shining light to the rest of the world.


Nicely done.

Thank god our terrorists lost lol!

Syria might be the 1st non-superpower country that rejected american hegemony, endured its disruptive interference AND is going prosper again. I hope that this will return the missing courage to European people. Congratulations and respect to all Syrians who did not fled and saved their country.

Joe Dirt

Syria is a waste land and will never prosper under Assad!


Syria is a wasteland, but the good news is there is a garbage tip close by called Israel, where the Syrians will be able to dump their rubbish.

Joe Dirt

There will be no Syrians left, Assad plans to bomb/kill them all…


Still bitter about the collapsing Greater Israel plan! Globalists having to admit defeat in Syria. Israel’s Wahhabi vassals having their butts kicked. Assad being more popular than any western leader. Hezbollah, Iran and Syria being battle-hardened and having extensive experience of real tough fighting. IDF soldiers being no-good for anything but beating children and women. So many said “Assad must go” but they went themselves. Yes there’s lot to be bitter about if you were rooting for the globalist head-choppers. But you can still change course and join the winners. Embrace your divine nature and banish the devil’s materialism. You know it’s right. Come, join us.

Joe Dirt

What kind of conspiracy propaganda are you reading?

But, in case you want to know what the globalist have in mind here you go, straight from the devil’s mouth https://www.defense.gov/Portals/1/Documents/pubs/2018-National-Defense-Strategy-Summary.pdf

AGAIN, here comes the usual hasbara bullshit rhetoric…

This “Joe Dirt” is as bad as all the others and so laughable..

Mauro Craizer

Paid for every post, or you are shilling for free, like most good dumb goyims? USS Liberty.

northerntruthseeker .

I smell the stench of hasbara here… Their usual type of “comment”…


Vietnam also defeated the USA, but still suffers the after effects of American chemical warfare.

Dr. Pro Liv

I hate to spoil your bragging about Syria …. But that same Syria was almost occupied country (despite help of Iran and Hezbollah) when they called Russians for help. Majority of people here are first to spit on Russia and last to recognize any Russian help.

Without Russian help Syria would probably not even exist let alone “challenge” US and stooges.


Congratulations SAA & Allies… may Victory be with you all in the East too…

VeeNarian (Yerevan)

SAA, Russia, Iran, Hezbollah and the PLA are the best disinfectant against US/EU/NATO/GCC/Israel infections on the face of the Earth. The head-choppers and their masters must be getting hopping mad! And these same people have organised a minute silence today for the Manchester victims that the same head-chopper victims murdered, those very young Ariana Grande concert goers. The US/EU/NATO elite must be exposed and put on trial for their collaboration with IS head-choppers.


vishna, drink better clear water from ganges!

Kell McBanned

Well done
