shallnot_beinfringed First, some quick background on me: As some of you may already know, from 1993 through 2008, I worked for the FBI. From 2003 through 2008, I was a National Security Intelligence Asset with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). I left the FBI in 2008 and a year later, was horribly betrayed by the Obama Administration who had me arrested for saying in public (in 2009), the exact same words the government paid me to say several years earlier in 2005! I am the only living American media personality ever imprisoned by the federal government for writing an Editorial they didn't like!

last weekend, Saudi Arabia publicly floated the idea of sending 150,000 ground troops into Syria "to fight ISIS." Well, everyone who knows what's really going on now, understands the Saudi's are full of shit.  They don't want to "fight ISIS" they want to help the rebels overthrow Assad!  Turkey wants to protect ISIS so they can keep grabbing boatloads of cash from the stolen oil.
Syria and Russia both read between the lines and saw the writing on the wall:  If foreign ground troops come in, it will not be to fight ISIS, it will be to support the rebels and overthrow Assad.  So Syria's Foreign Minister went public and said, No one should think they can challenge Syria's territorial sovereignty and anyone who tries will be sent home in a wooden coffin." Then a member of the Russian State Duma (Parliament) publicly stated that "If any foreign troops enter Syria without permission from the Syrian government, Russia will consider that a declaration of war."
Wednesday, I got word from my colleagues in the Intelligence Community that Saudi Arabia and 25 of its "allies" had begun massing troops in northern Saudi Arabia.  This time, it wasn't the 150,000 that were mentioned earlier.  This time it is 350,000 ground troops.

  •   shallnot_beinfringed Then the shit hit the fan when it was confirmed that the Saudis and their allies are already transporting TWENTY THOUSAND TANKS. (20,000). Worse, 2,450 warplanes are enroute to northern Saudi Arabia and the Saudis have declared the airspace in the northern section of the country to be "closed." Lastly, in addition to the 2,450 warplanes, four-hundred-sixty (460) military helicopters are enroute as well.

    Saudi Arabia had the balls to claim this was all part of an "exercise." Bullshit.  There has never, in the history of human existence, been an "exercise" with 350,000 troops, 20,000 tanks, 2,450 warplanes and 460 military helicopters.  There is just no way to have an exercise of that magnitude, it is too damn large.  What's really taking place is the massing of an invasion force.  Saudi Arabia also said the exercise would take 18 days.  That would put it as ending February 28. 27min
  •   shallnot_beinfringed Late this afternoon, Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced he was "asking NATO allies to join a US coalition to send ground troops into Syria." This is directly threatening the Russians that they will be facing NATO!
    The Russian response was swift:  This evening Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev warned that "the demands of some Arab countries to send ground forces into Syria risks starting a new world war." Mr. Medvedev said sending troops to Syria risks drawing “everyone taking part in it into a war” and drastically escalating the conflict. “All ground operations, as a rule, lead to permanent wars,” he said. “The Americans must consider – both the U.S. president and our Arab partners – whether or not they want a permanent war.” Russia again repeated its warning that any foreign ground troops entering Syria without permission would be a declaration of war. 27min

resistance_axis ISIL continues massive retreat as Syrian forces advance towards Tabaqa -

Moments ago in the Al-Raqqa countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), Fouj Al-Joulan (Golani Regiment), and the pro-government Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Quds) – imposed full control over several hills surrounding the imperative village of Zakiyah along the Salamiyah-Raqqa Road.

According to a military source in the Al-Salamiyah District, the Syrian Armed Forces established control over several small hilltops that surround the village of Zakiyah in southern Al-Raqqa after a fierce battle with the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL) this morning.

Recently, ISIL lost control of the Zakiyah crossroad that would allow them access to much of the Hama Governorate’s eastern countryside; this loss now leaves the terrorist group without a primary supply route to their stronghold at the town of ‘Aqayrib.

resistance_axis Hezbollah, Syrian Army push south towards Anadan in northern Aleppo -

The Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and their allies have been on a roll as of late, capturing several sites in the Aleppo Governorate’s northern countryside while the Islamists continue their massive retreat along the strategic Aleppo-Gaziantep Highway.

On Saturday morning, the Islamists of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, the do called "Free Syrian Army" (FSA), Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen, and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah launched a counter-assault to recapture the Tannourah Quarries and the two hilltops that overlook this strategic village in northwestern Aleppo.

The Islamists were successful in recapturing the sites that weere captured by the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies the day before in Mount Simeon.

However, not long after the Islamists recaptured these sites, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies launched their own counter-assault, where they recaptured the hilltops and quarries that were seized by the Islamists.

Following the capture of these sites, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies (specifically Hezbollah) reentered the village of Tannourah and pushed south towards the strategic town of ‘Anadan.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are immersed in a violent battle inside Tannourah and Bayyanoun; if these villages are captured, they will be able to push further south and reverse the Islamist gains near the provincial capital.

resistance_axis Turkey calls for YPG withdrawal from Syria’s border -

Having confirmed the shelling on the positions of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), Ankara has called for the withdrawal of YPG forces from northern Syrian border regions.

_ “The YPG will immediately withdraw from Azaz and the surrounding area and will not go close to it again,” said Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu during a live broadcast on Turkish TV on Saturday.

He also confirmed the shelling of positions recently retaken from the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group by the YPG affiliate the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), and added that they were carried out as “retaliation” and were “within the framework of the rules of engagement.” _

Davutoglu added that Turkey would “retaliate against every step” made by the group.

Earlier, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the strategic Mennagh military airport and a village in the northwestern province of Aleppo had been shelled by Turkey.

Ankara considers the PYD as an ally of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which it has been battling for months, but to the US, the group is seen as part of the fight against the Daesh terrorists.

Meanwhile, US State Department spokesman John Kirby called on Turkey to halt military strikes on the PYD.

_ “We are concerned about the situation north of Aleppo and are working to de-escalate tensions on all sides,” he said.

resistance_axis Syrian Army advances towards Tabaqa Military Airport: Tal Masbah captured -

On Saturday evening in the Hama-Raqqa countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), Fouj Al-Joulan (Golani Regiment), and the pro-government Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigade) – imposed full control over another hilltop near the Salamiyah-Raqqa Highway after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in the Ithriyah countryside. -

According to a military source from the 555th Brigade, the Syrian Armed Forces captured the small hilltop of Tal Masbah, which is located just 15 km northeast of Ithriyah in the Hama Governorate; it was one of the last ISIL strongholds along the Salamiyah-Raqqa Highway. -

The military source added that the ISIL militants entrenched at Tal Masbah fled northeast of the aforementioned hilltop towards the small desert village of Jubb Al-Qutna on the Raqqa-Hama border; this area is predominately contested between the government and the terrorist group. -

In addition to advancing north of the Salamiyah-Raqqa Road, the Syrian Armed Forces continued their powerful assault on the ISIL terrorists near the strategic village of Zakiyah on the border of the Al-Raqqa Governorate. -

Yesterday, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to establish full control over the Zakiyah crossroad, blocking ISIL’s primary supply route from Al-Raqqa to the east Hama countryside. -

The Syrian Armed Forces are attempting to seize the imperative Tabaqa Military Airport in southwestern Al-Raqqa; it was captured by ISIL in August of 2014.

  •   sammyboas Do you think the Syrian of Russian army will retaliate after the Turkish terrorist army attacked them. 4h
  •   resistance_axis @sammyboas Not necessarily. Just because Erdogan wants world war, it doesn't mean Syria or Russia should play into his hands. Only in case of a real invasion and attack on the Syrian Army should they act out of self defense and retaliate. This is just my opinion, based on my belief that Russian and Syrian statesmen have more sense than Erdogan. 4h

resistance_axis Syrian Arab Army captures Ara village amidst offensive in Latakia -

During the evening hours, the Syrian Arab Army captured the village of Aras in the Latakian countryside after a brief skirmish with rebel fighters of Jabhat al-Nusra (Al-Qaeda). -

Due to mountainous terrain, tanks and artillery pieces were rendered largely useless for the battle; however, ground troops of the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard stormed the village from its western, southern and eastern flanks and thus forced Islamist fighters to retreat further north. -

Since October of 2015, government forces have captured dozens of villages from Islamist insurgents in the eastern and northern outskirts of Latakia province. Remarkably, the Syrian Arab Army has also captured the rebel strongholds of Salma and Rabiah which have otherwise been Islamist-held since the summer of 2012. -

This offensive can partially be credited to the Russian Airforce which utilizes the Hmeymim Airbase near Latakia city as to combat Islamist rebels inside Syria. For now, less than 10 kilometers set government troops and the Turkish border apart. -

If this area is captured by the Syrian Arab Army, such a maneuver would completely expel rebel forces from Latakia province and force them to retreat towards Idlib and Jisr Al-Shughour. -

The latter might possibly witness a huge battle in the near future if government soldiers are able to maintain the momentum and current rate of advance.
