    Let's hope that Assad’s army will finally begin to fight back and turn the tide in the Middle East.

      Only for the destruction of ancient monuments, the IG should already be destroyed. But American remakeers don't give a damn about it. What interest do they have for them if this cannot be sold.

    And where at that moment were the air forces of the “coalition”, which, as it were, declared war on ISIS? As always - no one knows where. The cherished dream of a “coalition” is that ISIS and Assad strangle each other, and a “white man” - a Negro marine with a full mouth of chewing gum - comes to Syria on their bones.

      The "coalition" air force could have attacked Assad’s army, Obama has already allowed it. It's good that they were not there

        Air Force "coalition" could strike at Assad's army

        It has long been clear that the so-called coalition, if it does not help, then it just does not stop the terrorists from fighting against the Syrian army. I have never heard statements by the IG that spoke about the losses from the actions of the coalition air force, well, unless in the Kobani region they helped the Kurds and even then it is doubtful.

        One to one from the patterns of the State Department. Opposition military operations are also being developed in Washington.

    what nafig coalition support. How does this support go? and I'll tell you.
    Schedule of departures. It is planned to fly out a couple of times a day and they do so: a plane with missiles flies out, arrives without them and ticks that they bombed, whoever got killed, no one will understand. The main thing is to create the appearance of support. Then loud wailing supposedly ... we We support the fight against ISIS. And they themselves continue to pour weapons and money into the little black ones.

      And what to do there? Do you propose to live according to Zhirik’s mriy? He also wanted to wash his boots in the Indian Ocean. A good idea, but it is better to do this in cooperation with India and Iran than as a result of the war with them.

      The war in Syria has been going on for four years. Four! of the year! There are many military men fighting all this time. They fought not with cuttings, and did not run in a crowd. There is nothing to teach them by and large. Young replenishment - yes, it is necessary. The rest can teach themselves.

      Armament is lost, but tankers, artillery, infantry at the battalion level are fully trained.

    Quotes from the article:
    .. Grouping of the IG total up to xnumx thousand people was able to capture the ancient city on May 12 ...

    ... For eight days, the defenders of the city succeeded destroy about 600 fighters. Own losses Syrian military made up 85 killed, 50 wounded and 50 missing....


    The numbers raise a lot of questions ...

      . reconnaissance sabotage group of 10 fighters, can really stop the advance of the motorized rifle battalion - this is somewhere up to 30 armored personnel carriers / infantry fighting vehicles and 300-400 hp

      why not recapture and hold Palmyra!

    Something I doubt about the scale of the fighting. In the attack, ISIS lost as many as 6 killed and a tank! What is this attack? A platoon attacked, or what? And such attacks distract from the offensive on the city! Question. Syrian army army in general? Now it’s clear that without our instructors and appropriate training they can only sit out. Lost initiative and morale. Therefore, the refugees rushed off - they lost hope.
    With the strengthening of our help, victory reports went. And the mattresses howled in one voice. It’s clear why they howled. They decided that they had already "squeezed" Assad, here it is, victory ... And then - a bummer.

    The problem with the Arab armies is that soldiers / officers do not relate to the state, and even more so to the army. The stratification in the army is enormous among the officers. Someone served to add, from the memory of the 40s, a gentlemanly gloss like that of the British, someone tried to climb the social ladder. The soldier did not consider the service to be the best job for which some money was being paid, but he considered it unwise to die for these crumbs.

    The Arab states were created artificially after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1918. Tribal relations among the Arabs, while they are invisible to an outsider, are still important and not more important than all the others. The contradictions of the Sunnis / Shiites / Christians in all their sectarian and group modifications are superimposed on this.

    The remaining Syrian Alawites are now holding on, and seem to hold on to the end. In case of defeat, their fate is terrible and predictable. The simplified reception of refugees in Europe seems to be including an attempt to demoralize and weaken resistance in Syria. Run to Europe, it is quiet and satisfying.
