    Assad has no more manpower to set up checkpoints. He is in trouble.
    Terrorists come from all over the world (encouraged by Western countries) to join the fight since the Syrian borders are open while he has no replacements. It is the fifth year and ISIS is still fighting, jihadist groups are still fighting. Where do they get ammo, drones, pick-up, vbied and missiles?
    Iraqi army fights only to Mosul but half of northern Iraq is ISIS. Why does Iraqi force not open multiple fronts? This matter is getting beyond a joke.

      The iraqis have obliterated ISIS, dude. By the end of the year there will hardly be any presence of ISIS in Iraq…

      And the influx of foreign fighters has dropped dramatically. Everyone has manpower problems now, even ISIS.

    Its about time , the greater the Russian presence , the less likely the Americans will try to embed themselves . This time when they take Palmyra , or Deir Azzor , guard it with a police corp and keep the troops on the perimeter . Get some presence there quickly , before the yanky war machine is even tempted to a last ditch attempt at Syria . Syria is the Russian sphere of influence , Iraq is the American

    Let the US presence in Syria , be minimal !
