    (Especially since that idiot is so proud of publishing such photos under hashtags like 'SAA', 'Syrian Arab Army' etc.)

    BTW: here a nice summary of '1 year of major Russian achivements in Syria': For every 1 square kilometer Syria regime gained in Aleppo, it lost 14.5 square kilometers to rebels in Hama (PDF file).

    Guess, Kremlin sees this as a 'confirmation' that the Russian military intervention in Syria prevented the JAN from taking over in Damascus...

    SOHR Again, another bridge destroyed by warplanes @ countryside of #DeirEzzor increases the province’s separation

    If the Syrians/Russians keep this up then even DeirEzzor will be isolated fully with IS surrounding it fully.....just proves both Assad and Putin do not quite understand just how to stop IS

    But they do - fight for what they think is in interest of Europe: destabilisation of the EU through mass influx of refugees, through Putler's support for all sorts of right- and left-wing extremists, through spread of xenophobia and chauvinism etc.

    All of this is 'better' for Russia, because a disunited EU means Russia stronk.

    IMPORTANT development

    Intact Assad regime armor being left behind on retreat is a sign of either lack of coordination or - equally likely - fuel. 14+ so far in N Hama.

    CRITICAL as this proves that the US supported Kurdish proxy YPG/SDF/PKK in the end is in fact an ally of Assad and Putin and just how could CENTCOM/US SF and the entire Obama WH get it so wrong?????

    Regime media: #Assad and #YPG "in cooperation" in northern #Aleppo.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jzmU79QUfY#…

    YPG has been assisting Assad regime Shia militias and Hezbollah in their attacks on the eastern portion of Aleppo and the FSA....

    BUT WAIT the US has been providing YPG weapons and training to attack IS.....BUT IS is not in Aleppo.....

    Fred Hof: "The #Assad regime makes Syria safe for terrorist groups that threaten the United States and its allies."

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.5fb64e2614cf

    Political extremism in Syria — the kind that combines irreligious sectarianism in the name of Islam with transnational terrorism — depends on Bashar al-Assad clinging to power. The Islamic State certainly must be beaten militarily, a long process that is painfully overdue. But Assad’s political survival strategy of mass homicide has made Syria fertile ground for vicious forms of criminality distinct from his own. To defeat the Islamic State, we must end the regime’s mass murder: diplomatically if possible, militarily if necessary.

    The Assad regime is a cause and enabler of the Islamic State. In the early 2000s, it helped midwife al-Qaeda in Iraq, the direct ancestor of the Islamic State, by escorting foreign fighters across Syria and into Iraq. By pursuing a civilian-centric terrorism agenda since 2011 and alienating Sunni Muslims in Syria and around the globe, the regime has boosted the terrorist group’s recruiting and created a territorial vacuum for the ersatz caliphate to fill. The Islamic State is Assad’s enemy of choice, and Assad is the group’s enemy of choice as well — someone whose depredations fall overwhelmingly on Sunni Muslims it hopes to recruit.

    President Obama#first acknowledged this symbiotic relationship in November 2014 at the Group of 20 summit in Australia. He recognizes that Assad’s war on civilians sustains the Islamic State, but he has never exacted a military price for mass murder. Instead the United States’ strategy in Syria today ineffectively divides the problem into two loosely connected pieces: in the West, watching mass murder while entreating Russia to stop it; in the East, pursuing the Islamic State indecisively with airplanes and a Kurdish militia.
    No one advocates invading and occupying Syria. Still, the next president should approach Syria in a way consistent with ground truth: The rampant criminality of the Assad regime makes Syria safe for terrorist groups that threaten the United States and its allies.

    If talks with Russia fail to stop regime atrocities, the president — our current one or the next — should seek, select and apply modest military means (such as cruise missile strikes and effective antiaircraft weapons for vetted rebels) to exact a painful price for wanton attacks on hospitals, schools, markets and mosques. Russia and Iran will not like it, but they can prevent it by getting their client out of the mass murder business. No one knows where Syria or Assad will be politically in a year, or three, or five. But we do know this: Nothing politically good can happen in Syria with civilians on the bull’s-eye. Assad’s free ride for mass murder must end for Syria’s future to begin.

    The Islamic State must be killed militarily and kept from coming back to life, but the missing ingredient has been a sufficiently capable ground force. For military victory over the Islamic State to be sealed, Washington and its allies must prepare their partners in the Syrian opposition to govern liberated areas. All of this is painfully and gratuitously overdue. A regional and European coalition of the willing under U.S. leadership should have been organized right after the Paris attacks of November 2015.

    Protecting civilians, beating the Islamic State and organizing decent governance for eastern Syria should be the pillars of a strategy to stabilize Syria, to set the stage for real peace talks and to stop the hemorrhaging of terrified humanity from a country ravaged mercilessly by two sides of the same terrorist coin: the Islamic State#and Assad.
