I am not sure why aa is still needed as the Syrian army is stupid enough to allow some of their best weapons anti air weapons to be captured. The insurgents now appear to have enough SA-16 and SA-24′s to take out the entire Syrian airforce, or what’s left it. Plus, they have captured a few advanced aa tanks with built in radar. Anyone else notice that reports of aerial bombardments have decreased sharply the past few weeks? All without a non-fly zone or stinger missiles.
The rebels best friend for advanced weapons it the regime itself. The Cowardly Lion is really just a big idiot.

Let’s hope that after the dust settles that girls can continue to go to school.

Aerial bombardments decreased because there is nothing to bomb. In the last few weeks between 3,000 to 5,000 insurgents have been killed. You will also notice that the media are silent about their reports of rebels encircling and launching their supposed final assault on the airport.

There is absolutely no military solution to this western aggression. The west has an unending supply of terrorists from Chechnia, Afghanistan, Lybia, Pakistan, etc.. and the Syrian army has an unending supply of courage and bravery to face them.

Right now both camps, US/UK/France/Turkey and their allies kings and sheiks in one side, and China/ Russia/ Iran/Ezbollah and their allies in the other, are posturing for the coming negociations in February.

Hillary Clinton will try a hail mary pass before she leaves starting from the enemies of Syria gathering in Marocco on wednesday.

The camp of aggression will keep trying regime change by all terrorism means and misinforming the public. They will try to increase “rebels held territories” mostly through media propaganda to give them leverage in these coming negociations.

Clue: Syria has 14 governorates. How many governors have been appointed by NATO or rebels? My answer is ZERO.

At this point only Saudi Arabia and Qatar seem to want Assad gone more than the rest of aggressors for religious reasons. The US and its NATO allies are looking for ways to turn the lemons they have in their hands into lemonade.
