Assad has learned too late that some people are serious

Assad has learned too late that some people are serious

Beginning in January of 2016, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began achieving impressive victories on the battlefield. Analysts attribute this to Russian air power. They’re wrong. In reality the Arab League worked out an arrangement with Bashar al-Assad that would avoid the horrors that have plagued Iraq since March of 2003. However, Assad has reverted to type. Bloodthirsty dictators never change. Assad reneged.

Very few people genuinely change.


Gaza in ruins thanks to the Jewish attackers! Construction nil thank Jewish occupiers cement…”

Evelyn Hecht-Galinski is a deranged Jew-hating German Jew whose life is in her lovely face.


Most Europeans hate Jews; it follows that Europeans who don’t hate Jews are exceptional individuals who’ve resisted pressure and propaganda that non-Europeans can’t imagine.

I salute all Europeans who don’t hate Jews. By refusing to hate, you tread the air above the din, to quote Led Zeppelin. Bravo.

And everything wrong in Gaza and the West Bank is due to the choices of Palestinians.

Under the scheme, householders are assessed to see if they qualify for rebuilding materials, then registered and issued with a coupon allowing them to buy a specified amount of materials from warehouses monitored by a UN-administered inspection regime.

During a recent visit to cement warehouses in Gaza, however, the Guardian saw cement being resold a few feet outside the warehouse doors at up to four times the cost within minutes of being handed over to householders with coupons.

Gazans obviously didn’t want to rebuild. Here’s what the Palestinians have been doing for decades.

That which has no instinct to survive, won’t.

Which brings me to Bashar al-Assad

Assad the Ba’athist

The Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party–Syria Region (Hizb Al-Ba’ath Al-Arabi Al-Ishtiraki–Qutr Suriya) is basically National Socialism. Assad is a Nazi. I applaud the Arab League’s effort to ease him out of power. What happened in Iraq was that the West took over and imposed something from the outside. We also allowed our “soft bigotry of low expectations” to wreck the attempt to rebuild. When the Iraqis refused to improve, we let them get away with it.

I knew that the Arab League had worked out an arrangement with Assad. The evidence is indisputable.

This is not the SAA.

Those are highly trained Arab League professional strategic special operators. They’re the ones defeating the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and the Islamist rebels. The SAA no longer exists. To prevent postwar disaster, however, the SAA had to be given some of the credit for saving Syria. Assad would go into exile in Russia, and the SAA would sit at the negotiating table with the Syrian Democratic Forces, the YPG, and everyone else who defeated Syria’s enemies.

Syria, Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah playacted to save face. Fake commanders with orange faces were paraded for the cameras.


Support troops were turned into “Rambos” who called in air strikes on their own positions.


Middle-aged men were described as “special forces.”


Lebanese actors with no training fired into the ground.


Still, everything would’ve worked, but Assad went back on his word.

Between 350,000 and 400,000 people are believed to remain in rebel-held parts of Aleppo, once a city of two million.

Meanwhile, in Geneva, John Kerry, the US secretary of state, said “several proposals”, aimed at finding a way to restore at least a partial truce in Syria, were being discussed.

“We’re getting closer to a place of understanding, but we have some work to do, and that’s why we’re here,” he said at the start of a meeting on Monday with Adel al-Jubeir, Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister.

Saudi condemnation

After meeting Jubeir and Staffan de Mistura, the UN envoy for Syria, Kerry said he hoped for more clarity in the next day or so on restoring the nationwide ceasefire.

“What is happening in Aleppo is an outrage. It’s a violation of all humanitarian laws. It’s a crime,” Jubeir said.

“It’s a violation of all the understandings that were reached.”

There. From the horse’s mouth.

Assad is a dead man walking. The Arab League will now remove him not only from power but from the earth.

Why did Assad do it?

Denial. Rage. Look how people work themselves up into murderous frenzies on social media, spewing foam over situations that have no impact whatsoever on them personally. Now image the emotions of a spoiled dictator whose entire autocratic way of life is being taken from him.

Assad is in a state of hysteria over what’s happened. He’s not thinking clearly. As a medical doctor, he can drug himself up in a million different ways.


He decided to try and take advantage of Arab League civility by daring them to overthrow him. The conventional wisdom is that all Middle Easterners need dictators to keep them in line. Assad is counting on the post-Saddam, post-Gaddafi chaos to serve as cautionary tales.

Well, Iraq and Libya were poorly handled. You need to look at Yemen instead. The Saudis and Emiratis trained and equipped Yemenis to do most of the fighting.


It took much longer, but the plan was for this to be the last Yemeni war. Also, the Arab League fights almost entirely in secret. The press is not given enough material for it to reshape into some Opposite World piece of “accountability journalism.” I approve of fighting in secret. The Saudis have put the onus on the accuser: “If you think we’ve committed a war crime, prove it.

In the west and Israel, anyone can force the military to spend irreplaceable time and money investigating blatant falsehoods. Note that corrupt NGOs have pretty much given up defaming the Saudis. It just didn’t work.

There’s something else motivating Assad. I see it every single day.

Assad and his prejudice

The world will simply not accept the notion that ARABS have created the finest armed forces in history. I’m not saying that every Arab land, air, and sea unit is the best. However, there’s absolutely no doubt that the Arab League organized what IDF Brigadier General Gal Hirsch (retired) dubbed “C6ISR forces.” The term C6ISR stands for “Command, Control, Communications, Computing, Cyber, Commando, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance.”

These are strategic special forces. Here’s what Hirsh said in February of 2016.

In their present format, C6ISR forces do not possess the critical mass required for a ground maneuver – certainly not for methodical dismantling of the enemy. Their activity is normally characterized by a small signature, but the assumption according to which special forces mean small units is no longer valid.

I believe that Hirsh was being…discreet. It’s clear to me that the Arab League does have enough C6ISR forces necessary for a ground maneuver, meaning a ground war that will dismantle the enemy.

C6ISR forces will get the job done in their own way, even if that way cannot currently be found in the doctrine manuals – these forces are adaptable and know how to invent new combat doctrines in the field and write them into the manuals later.

And that’s what I’ve seen in Yemen, Syria, and Iraq. The new units are so well trained that they’re inventing their own combat doctrines. They also have new weapons that allow them to fight in city centers without killing civilians.



To dismantle the enemy, you need very few strategic special forces. They have portable missiles that travel at Mach 18 (13,979 miles per hour or 22,497 kilometers per hour).


Flying Black Boxes of Death accompany them.






They use miniature missiles to kill terrorists in the middle of crowds.




For the first time, special forces have been given their own main battle tanks (MBTs).


Also fixed-winged and rotary winged aircraft.


And they have other methods that I could tell you about, but that would alert the enemy. Besides, EVERYTHING I WRITE IS SUPPOSITION. I have no contacts in any armed force.

These new soldiers, weapons, tactics, strategies, and doctrines could all be feverish hallucinations caused by my multiple illnesses.










No. Everything I write about is real.

Say goodbye to Bashar al-Assad. He won’t survive underestimating the Saudis.
