Enligt Syrian Perspective har en stor mängd nya lego-krigare, ca 9000 (!), anlänt till Aleppo efter att armén gjort slut på de som tidigare försökte belägra staden. Från ett annat inlägg på samma blogg –
Michael paints an ugly picture of the battle for Aleppo. He says that the Syrian army is fighting a very brave battle against mostly ”foreign mercenaries” whose only talent appears to be jumping into people’s homes and nesting there. He describes the foreign fighters as rat-like with attendant survivalist training. They are completely alien to the area, sometimes roaming in neighborhoods with populations clearly hostile to them. In one neighborhood across from Sukkari, a woman started shouting at a group of four terrorists from her balcony. She screamed she didn’t want any part of their jihad and that they had better get out before her sons killed them all. The group, which appeared to Michael to be North African by their physical features, said nothing and left without a word exchanged.
The terrorists are completely disoriented. As we reported to you in previous posts, Erdoghan’s regime made the decision to evict whole units of Libyan and Yemeni killers from bases in Hatay Province. This resulted in a disastrous confluence of tactical mistakes mostly committed by the inexperienced German and British technical support teams who were supposed to guide the criminals toward productive zones.
Instead, Syrian military intelligence picked up communications between the terrorists essentially committing them to a re-gathering in Aleppo. There was no other way. All the nonsense you are hearing in the news about the FSA ”decision” to retake the city is an effort to save face while the ranks of their killers are splitting at the seams. Pure anarchy reigns now in the so-called ”opposition”.
Dr. Assad visited the two special forces brigades and told them that the ”time is right” for a complete extirpation of the murderers in the city. Just as the Germans and English believe Aleppo is the final battle to establish the opposition, the Syrian government shares the view that the city must be restored to its unchallenged control. We now know that there are over 23,000 Syrian troops surrounding Aleppo with thousands of security agents, militia and infantry inside. The terrorists will be defeated but at a high cost to the infrastructure of this great and ancient commercial capital. Maybe, that’s what the Obama regime is planning anyway.
I asked Michael about the possibility that the West might succeed in its war of attrition against the Syrian army. He says: ”No way!” He seconds SyrPer’s conclusion that the more these terrorists infiltrate the country, the more Syrians are coming together. There is a sense of destiny here. Do you want to live under the rule of Islamist Jihadist troglodytes or a secular, progressive government? The answer is clear.
En video har dykt upp som sägs visa en amerikansk journalist som varit i Syrien och som nu varit försvunnen en tid. En talesperson för regeringen i USA, Victoria Nuland, försöker göra gällande att man tror att han tagits tillfånga av syriska regeringsstyrkor. Scott Creighton tror dock att det hela är en ny fabricerad bluff-historia – More Stupid Propaganda on Syria: Missing Soldier Turned “Journalist” Appears in Dramatic Video
.. a silly video with fake “jihadists” shows up in the MSM purporting to be a missing journalist taken hostage by the Assad regime. Why would the Assad regime do something so stupid as to deliberately incite an American invasion with this stupid video? What do they have to gain? Nothing.
What do the propagandists who wish to generate a ground swell of support for an invasion of Syria have to gain from it? Everything. Staged bullshit using a former Marine turned journalist? You betcha.
