    Maybe the Pentagon and Tel Aviv should order a new Name Change for the Terrorists…. It seems the last one didn’t work !! And BTW : This page is becoming boring without US State Department Trolls !! I guess they are in a bad state of mental depression and feeling desolate !!

  • Good progress is being made, eventually SAA will defeat the FSA in Aleppo, but this major victory for SAA wouldn’t suit US well.

    Unfortunately most of the the terrorists left in East Aleppo are the more fanatical gullible types looking forward to their goats and virgins in the afterlife, As the pocket gets ever smaller and the ammo and drugs run out hopefully they will start fighting among themselves.
