The Syrian Arab Army (2) | Oryx Blog

With the Syrian Ministry of Defense finally having embraced 21st century media technology, it now regularly uploads high-definition images on both its official website and twitter account. Despite this ‘giant’ leap forward, the Syrian MoD still only communicates to the outside world in Arabic, thereby excluding a large audience that could otherwise be interested in reading or viewing the MoD’s statements on ongoing battles in the Syrian theatre. Nonetheless, the images published provide for a perfect opportunity for another ‘Photo Report’.

CIA, Trump and civil war in USA | Katehon

The big issue are the Neocon globalist hawks of the Republican Party. People must understand something: there is a civil war within the Republican Party. On one side there are the Neocon globalist hawks and on the other side there are the true conservatives or Paleoconservatives, aka the Old Right. The Neocons took power in the Republican Party with Bush I and ruled the party for 30 years. Now the Paleoconservatives are back in power (thank God!) but the civil war is as strong as ever. On one side, the Neocons, led by Neocon Hawk in Chief Senator McCain, hate Trump, hate the true conservatives, think that the Soviet Union is still there like the Warsaw Pact, have not noticed that Russia is no longer Communist but is now Christian, and live in the eternal Cold War.

Euphrates shield. 6 months later | Colonel Cassad

The maps clearly demonstrate that the issue of the expulsion of the Caliphate from Northern Syria was dependent on the good will of Turkey, which after they stop their dalliances with the Caliphate and ran across to the camp of the Russian-Iranian coalition, helped to push the “black” from the Syrian-Turkish border. Of course, this was not done out of altruistic reasons, and in the framework of countering the threat of establishing an independent Kurdistan.

Turkey will not end the war until they take Manbij | Colonel Cassad

Overall, the local TVD one way or another in the near future will have significant changes that need to consolidate a new balance of power after the Caliphate was driven out of Northern Syria. It is unlikely that the attack on the Manbij will start earlier on 9-10 March, when Moscow will host talks between Putin and Erdogan, and where there should be follow-up steps to consolidate the spheres of influence of the parties in Northern Syria and obligations under the Syrian settlement. Though completely to exclude it is impossible, because of the tendency of Erdogan to impulsive and adventurous actions.

GLORY TO THE HOTEP!

Hotep Nation is a group of people looking to restore integrity to the term “hotep” as it has been smeared by left-wing black media and the likes. Hotep Nation is about self-empowerment, self-accountability, and independence for people of African descent. This is a “pro-black” movement for the benefit of all Earth people.

The attack on Palmyra. 27.02.2017 | Colonel Cassad

The Syrian command is making sufficiently reasonable attempts to expand the territory of the elongated protrusion, to Palmyra, to reduce the future risks associated with flanking threats key track supply, so the advance to the main defensive lines of the Caliphate is quite obvious. Similar actions are being taken and to the South, where the army yesterday took the altitude of 939, the control of which should provide the southern flank of group coming to the crossroads West of the city.

4 Dead Russian Ambassadors in 3 Months – Foul play? | Fort Russ

A farewell to Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Mr Churkin, for well over a decade, featuring Spokeswoman for Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova. Following the Assassination of Andrei Karlov in Turkey earlier this year, was the death of Andrey Melanin in Athens of ‘natural causes’. Ambassador Alexander Kadakin to India had died of an apparent heart attack, even though no previous health issues were known. Together with Vitaly Churkin, this now brings the death total of Russian officials serving in foreign capacity to 4, all within a 3 month period. Coincidence? Or does the CIA have a long arm?

Tadif taken | Colonel Cassad

Thus, without high-profile victories, the SAA during the offensive North of Aleppo has freed more than 500 square kilometers of territory of the province. This is a logical consequence of a delayed victory in the “Mother of all battles”, as the release of a large number of troops, allowed the SAA more confidence to conduct offensive operations against the Caliphate, using a partial truce with the “green”. While maintaining the ceasefire regime and the implementation by Turkey of its obligations, the SAA in the coming months will greatly expand the monitoring area to the East of Aleppo and will be able to finally solve an old problem with the safety of the route Khanasser-Aleppo.

Mosul. Moments of the war | Colonel Cassad

Despite the losses of the Iraqis and the stubborn resistance of the enemy, the strategic position of militant groups in the Mosul area continues to deteriorate. Yes, they cause significant losses to those advancing and defend to the death, but they cannot reverse the current trend, and in March, or at least, in early April West of Mosul should be freed. At the moment there are according to various estimates from 550 to 750 thousand people still in the city.

The crisis over DFS

The negotiations on the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from DFS this morning to no avail, which gave rise to the Donetsk re-tighten dull mantra about “violation of the Minsk agreements”. However, for lunch they had come to an agreement about the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from most of the DFS while the junta still did not miss the opportunity for a few to advance their positions in the “gray area” to the DFS, which again led to the reading dull mantras about “violation of the Minsk agreements”.
