    Default Russia Announces The Complete Destruction Of ISIS In Syria

    In a historic moment, ignored by much of Western media, Russian military officials have announced the complete and utter defeat of ISIS in Syria. The Russian General Staff issued a statement Wednesday declaring that all territories previously under terrorist control were liberated in a final push by the Syrian Army this week, and with the support of Russian forces.
    “All terrorist units of ISIS on Syrian soil have been destroyed, and the territory is liberated,” Armed Forces Chief of Staff General Valery Gerasimov said in comments translated and published by RT. "Therefore, as of today, there’s no territory controlled by ISIS in Syria,” he added.

    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Syria regime skips Geneva talks restart: source

    Bomb on bus in Homs leaves 8 dead; Daesh claims responsibility

    Damascus: Syrian regime negotiators will remain in Damascus on Tuesday and Wednesday, a source close to the delegation said, skipping the scheduled resumption of United Nations-led peace talks in Geneva.
    “The delegation will not leave today or tomorrow for Geneva, and the final decision (on attending) has not been taken yet,” the source told AFP on Tuesday.

    An eighth round of peace talks aimed at ending Syria’s nearly seven-year war began in Geneva last week.

    UN Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura announced shortly after the talks began that they would be extended by two weeks.

    Negotiations were paused over the weekend, but both sides were expected to return to Geneva to resume discussions scheduled to begin on Tuesday.

    However, the Al Watan newspaper, which is close to the government, said the regime’s delegation was in Damascus and was not expected to leave either Tuesday or Wednesday.

    The daily said the invitation to return to the talks “is still being studied by the Syrian leadership”.

    Meanwhile, the opposition delegation to the talks said its head Nasser Al Hariri had arrived in Geneva and would meet de Mistura on Tuesday afternoon.

    On Monday, a government source had already cast doubt on the return of the delegation to the talks.

    “For the time being there has been no final decision. Damascus is still thinking about the feasibility of its participation,” the government source told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    “As soon as a decision is reached, it will be made public through the usual diplomatic channels.”


    On the ground in Syria, a bomb blast killed eight people and injured 16 others on a bus in Homs on Tuesday, state media said, citing the city’s health authority.

    Daesh claimed the attack, saying the blast killed 11 members of the Syrian army, its official news agency AMAQ said.

    Many of the passengers were university students, Homs Governor Talal Barazi told state-run Ikhbariya TV. The blast in the government-held city hit the Akrama district, near Al Baath university.

    Footage showed people crowding around the burned shell of a vehicle in the middle of a street. State television said “a bomb that terrorists planted in a passenger bus exploded”.

    Daesh militants had claimed responsibility for a similar attack in Homs in May, when a car bomb killed four people and injured 32 others.

    A string of bombings have struck cities under government control in Syria this year, including the capital Damascus. The Tahrir Al Sham alliance — led by fighters formerly linked to Al Qaida — has also claimed some of the deadly attacks.

    The city of Homs went back under full government control in May, for the first time since the onset of Syria’s conflict more than six years ago. Hundreds of Syrian rebels and civilians were evacuated from the city’s last opposition district, Al Waer, which the army and allied forces had besieged.

    U.S. MILITARY WILL STAY IN SYRIA AFTER ISIS IS DEFEATED, THREATENING NEW CONFLICT WITH RUSSIA AND IRAN

    The Pentagon has revealed its intention to keep troops in Syria after the defeat of the Islamic State militant group, despite calls from the country and its Russian and Iranian allies to expel U.S. forces, whose presence they consider illegal.

    For years, both the U.S. and Russia have sponsored separate, competing anti-ISIS campaigns in Syria. As Moscow and its allies—which included Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Iran—restored government control over the majority of Syria, they have increasingly called into question the continued role of Washington, which was also directly involved in prolonged conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. The U.S., which once supported rebels trying to overthrow Assad and later focused on Kurdish militias battling ISIS, said its current presence was necessary as long as the threat of a resurgent ISIS and other Islamist militant groups remained.

    "We are going to maintain our commitment on the ground as long as we need to, to support our partners and prevent the return of terrorist groups," Pentagon spokesperson Eric Pahon told Agence France-Presse.

    "To ensure an enduring defeat of ISIS, the coalition must ensure it cannot regenerate, reclaim lost ground or plot external attacks," he added.

    Funny part is that they 'disagree' with a statement which is exactly same as their own:

    “Naturally, there may still be isolated points of resistance, but in general, the combat work at this stage and in this territory is over,” Vladimir Putin said.


    “I think that’s an interesting announcement, I respectfully disagree,” Pahon said.
    “We still know that there are ISIS [Daesh] pockets in Syria that remain to be taken care of …

    Thousands of IS terrorists trapped inside the Syrian Desert
    https://www.almasdarnews.com/article...an-desert-map/










    There is 'nothing' there.... a lunar landscape.


    The IS forces are now confined to a 7,200 square kilometer area in western Deir Ezzor that has limited resources, while also being a prime target for airstrikes.

    From this large pocket, IS will likely wreck havoc on the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor Road in order to constantly force the government to close this highway.

    Trump taking credit for routing ISIS- Russia did most of the work in Syria along with the Kurds and the Iraq program was started with Obama two years ago.

    Trump, Mattis turn military loose on ISIS, leaving terror caliphate in tatters

    BAGHDAD – Hundreds of ISIS fighters had just been chased out of a northern Syrian city and were fleeing through the desert in long convoys, presenting an easy target to U.S. A-10 "warthogs."

    But the orders to bomb the black-clad jihadists never came, and the terrorists melted into their caliphate -- living to fight another day. The events came in August 2016, even as then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was vowing on the campaign trail to let generals in his administration crush the organization that, under President Obama, had grown from the “jayvee team” to the world’s most feared terrorist organization.

    “I will…quickly and decisively bomb the hell out of ISIS,” Trump, who would name legendary Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis as secretary of defense, promised. “We will not have to listen to the politicians who are losing the war on terrorism."

    Let's not forget Obama also killed OBL:

    Let's brainstorm/predict.

    If you were a warmongering bastard in DC, how would you reignite the now stifled effort to overthrow Assad?

    I don't think another fake chemical weapons attack is going to do the trick, nor more hysterical coverage of "barrel bombs."
    "The program of liberalism, ...if condensed into a single word, would have to read: property..."

    -Ludwig von Mises

    "Patriotism, not nationalism, should inspire the citizen. The ethnic nationalist who wants a linguistically and culturally uniform nation is akin to the racist who is intolerant toward those who look (and behave) differently. The patriot is a "diversitarian"; he is pleased, indeed proud of the variety within the borders of his country; he looks for loyalty from all citizens. And he looks up and down, not left and right."

    -Erik Maria Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

    "All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

    -H. L. Mencken
