      Its interesting to look at a satellite image of the desert. There are a few wadi’s that will presumably be infested with ISIS . This is where drone recce will come into its own and helicopter and light vehicle assault groups supported by bombing attacks I suppose.

    Cant wait till that Homs – DeZ pocket is coloured red and look very forward to the purge of Idlibistan.

      I think that would be an ideal excuse for a party; but I will have an open bar, night long party if Al-Tanf also turns red.
