As pointed out before, the US dropped over SEVEN MILLION TONS of bombs on the Viet Cong junior varsity that didn't have an air force.
Oh, really?

Breaking: Syrian Army Captures the Strategic Town of Ghannam in Northern Latakia

BY LEITH FADEL ON NOVEMBER 1, 2015 FEATURED

Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Qurdaha, Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance), and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – have imposed full control over the strategic town of Ghannam in the Turkmen Mountains of northern Latakia.

According to a military source from the National Defense Forces inside the town of Slunfeh, the Syrian Armed Forces entered Ghannam earlier this morning after intense firefights with the Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigades” and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” at the southern axis of this town – he added that the Russian Air Force’s MI-24 Hind Helicopter Gunships led the way for the complete capture of Ghannam.

With Ghannam under their full control, the Syrian Armed Forces have positioned themselves along the strategic Aleppo-Latakia Highway (M-4 Highway) that is mostly under the control of the Islamist rebels – the bulk of this highway goes through the Idlib Governorate, which is under the complete of the Islamist rebels.

The Syrian Armed Forces will now focus on the remaining territory in Jabal Turkmen that is under the control of the Islamist rebels; this includes the imperative town of Al-Rabi’yah that is considered the headquarters of the Free Syrian Army’s Coastal Division.

ISIS Training Camp Destroyed in Deir Ezzor: Several Chechens and Tunisians Killed

BY LEITH FADEL ON NOVEMBER 2, 2015 FEATURED

The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) had a rough day inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Sunday, as the Syrian and Russian Air Forces relentlessly pounded their positions inside this desert province in eastern Syria.

However, unlike their previous airstrikes inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the Russian and Syrian air raids were fixated on specific targets that are pertinent to the terrorist group’s success at the provincial capital and the Military Airport.

On Sunday morning, the Syrian Air Force was provided satellite imagery from their Russian military advisors that revealed the location of ISIS’ primary training camp inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate; this prompted the Syrian Air Force to carry out several airstrikes over this base at the town of Al-Shamaytiyah in the Al-Tabous Mountains.

According to a military source inside the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, the training camp was reportedly destroyed – along with the terrorists inside the camp – by the Syrian Air Force’s airstrikes.

The source added that many of the casualties were reportedly Chechen, Tunisian, Moroccan, Libyan, Saudi, and Iraqi.

ISIS attempted to make-up for their losses at their training camp by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the village of Al-Muri’iyah; however, this assault ended in disaster for the terrorist group, as the SAA’s 137th Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division killed 17 enemy combatants, including “Abu Usama Al-Tunisi (Tunisian), Issa Nouress Al-Utaibah, and Yousif ‘Abdel-Qader Moussa.

Syrian Army and Hezbollah Make Huge Gains in Southern Aleppo: Military Operations Begin in Al-Hadher

BY LEITH FADEL ON NOVEMBER 2, 2015 FEATURED

On Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and several Iraqi paramilitary units – continued their large-scale offensive in the southern countryside of Aleppo, targeting the Islamist rebel forces at the small villages of Khirbat Al-Shalash, Tal Dadeen, Kafr Haddad, and Al-Shughaydilah near the strategic town of Al-Hadher.

The Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance did not disappoint, as they first imposed control over Tal Dadeen and Khirbat Al-Shalash after intense firefights with the Islamsit rebels from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA); these villages are located just south of the recently captured town of Hadidi and directly east of Al-Hadher’s axis.

Following the capture of Tal Dadeen and Khirbat Al-Shalash, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance were finally able to achieve break-through at the imperative village of al-Shughaydilah, where they successfully infiltrated the Islamist rebel defenses en route to imposing full control over this site located just north of Al-Hadher.

With three villages surrounding Al-Hadher under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance shifted their attention to Kafr Haddad, where they were confronted by a large contingent of Islamist rebel fighters from Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham; this violent engagement is still ongoing between the two opposing parties, but recent reports indicate that the pro-government forces are advancing.

The Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance concluded the day by beginning their long-awaited military operations inside the integral rebel stronghold of Al-Hadher; this resulted in several clashes at the eastern and northern axis of this aforementioned town – no gains have been reported as of yet.

In addition to the participation of the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance, the Iraqi and Iranian/Afghani paramilitary units have also joined the fight against the Islamist rebels in southern Aleppo – among these reported groups are Harakat Al-Nuajaba, Kataeb Hezbollah, Liwaa Abu Fadl Al-‘Abbas, and Firqa Al-Fatameyyoun.

Amazing, is it not, you can actually accomplish victories, when you actually fight the enemy, not negotiate with them and such

Something else you should know, my American and Canadian and European friends, these are people supported and armed and funded by your governments doing this

In order to deter the Syrian and Russian Air Forces inside the East Ghouta (collection of farms) region of rural Damascus, the U.S. backed moderate rebels from “Jaysh Al-Islam” (Army of Islam) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have placed kidnapped Alawite women in cages to protect themselves from airstrikes.

The U.S. backed Syrian Opposition’s social media activists posted the photos of the six kidnapped Alawite women on Twitter, adding their extra commentary that included sectarian insults to degrade the helpless women and taunt the Syrian President Dr. Bashar Al-Assad.

Wonder if the good old CIA taught them that trick?

One last thing, about that air liner that went down in Egypt. I do not believe ISIS had anything to do with that, despite their stupid boasts. They do not have the technology to knock down a plane from such altitude, especially in Egypt.

On the other hand, the plane had old damage from a previous accident fourteen years ago, a "tail strike" during landing, which was never properly repaired. All we now assume is, something in there finally failed. In the usual tradition of our shoddy airline industry with their ever horrible safety record

Sad all those people had to pay for it with their lives, yet again. But, it looks like people may actually go to prison for it, this time.
