    What exactly was the opportunity?
    “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary”

    For nothing, Dayuhan. Nothing at all: after all, you know the best that leaving Syrians at the mercy of Jihadist- and regime-psychopats is the best solution...

    Meanwhile, elements of the 8th IRGC Division are deployed in Damascus area - supposedly to advise the RGD in armour ops, but malicious gossip has it that they are there to prevent further in-fighting between various Iranian, Iraqi and Lebanese Shi'a contingents that are stationed there since earlier...
