The liberation of Idlib is the most important aim, as it’s liberation would mean the civilians there will live under safety and security again after several years of Jihadi tyranny. The earlier Idlib gets liberated, the less civilians get murdered by the orks inside this zoo. Plus the liberation of Idlib would free up most of SAA’s manpower, which can be used later in the desert against the remaining ISIS cells, at-tanf and the jihadi cells in the south. Let’s pray Idlib will be liberated asap.

Every inch of Syria including Golan will be returned to Syria…

The time that “Untouchable” Imperial AngloZioNazi Parasites were able to:

1. Overthrow legally elected Governments
2. Kill Millions of People
3. Suck Nations Bone-Dry
4. Steal their Resources
5. Carpetbomb them back to the Stone-Age
6. Completely & Utterly Destroy them
7. Bring in their Contractors to “Rebuild” what they themselves Destroyed
8. Install their Puppeticians
9. Install their World-Bank
10. Create Debt

Should be over…enough is enough…if they don’t listen…give’m ears to hear…

Very well said my dear, very well explained. Seem that truth is surfacing after all this time.

Thank you my friend.


I don’t think the SAA wants to waste their best troops on attacks on entrenched positions, and they cannot commit all their military resources to the Idlib battle without becoming vulnerable on other fronts. I think we will see a lot more yet of wars of attrition. Also, as far as I can tell, some of the Idlibistanis are Chechens and Uyghurs who are a totally different military proposition to a few ragheads like the Sudanese in Yemen. The Chechens are the sort of guys that like to catch bullets between their teeth. So air and artillery strikes, and a general war of attrition, seems to make sense for the time being. There’s also no sense in making enemies of the civilian population of Idlib or you have to fight the same war twice, as the Americans found in Iraq.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
