Thanks to Khamenei's Intervention, Anti-Shia Rhetoric Is Now Common on International Jihadi Sites

Balatarin

Previously most  Jihadis never paid much attention to Iran despite Khamenei’s covert schemes in his quest for regional hegemony.   Now the crimes supported by Khamenei and carried out by his proxies in Syria are all over You Tube.   Putin, Assad and proxies have declared war on Syria’s Sunnis.   Fury deepens with each new massacre.  Some Shia militias even bring participating clerics (see photo below).

A boomerang will surely follow this war as jihadis strike back at all those who gave big-time help to Assad in killing off Sunni civilians.  Fanatics will not want to hear apologies or nonsense about how “we Muslims are all brothers.”  If Khamenei believed that, he’d never have assisted Assad’s Sunni-slaughter.   The same boomerang will hit Putin whose crimes in Syria got far more  attention than in isolated Chechnya.   Jihadis also know how Sunnis in Russia get treated by Putin’s ultranationalists. 

 

Funny story: RUSSIAN TV PLAYS DOWN HUGE PROTESTS IN UKRAINE

 

Can state-controlled  media tell whoppers?   In Russia millions of Ukrainian protesters have become “hundreds of provocateurs out to destroy Christmas."  

Iranians and Syrians know exactly how that works.

POWERFUL ISLAMIC FRONT ATTACKS AL-QUEDA LINKED  ISUS TODAY

 

Four were killed in retaliation for them attacking and looting FSA SMC warehouses.  Apparently I owe the Islamic Front an apology.  They kept their promise to defend FSA warehouses from the usual arrogant ISUS takeovers, did not seize anything and handed all back afterwards. 

 

ISUS is powerless against the Islamic Front, but can easily pick on the FSA moderates who Obama did everything possible to betray and weaken.  Trusting promises from Obama would be as foolish as leaving your children with a thrice-convicted pedophile to give him "another chance."

VIDEO: A dying Assad soldier keeps repeating these words, “ Labbayka ya Hussein, Labbayke ya Zaynab” (nothing to do with Syria, homeland).

http://linkis.com/wp.me/xle2


Top reason this man died was so that the 150 members of the ruling circle who won 65% of Syria’s wealth, keep their position and privileges. If destroying Syria, promoting sectarian war and radicalizing everyone was essential to that purpose, so be it!

The other reason was so to maintain Khamenei’s quest for empire. Suppose Iran were forced to give it up and live like a normal nation with no imperial dreams?. Iran might have become as prosperous as Germany or Japan, whose dreams were thwarted in 1945 and never missed empire since.

Khamenei and Putin have similar tastes in domestic and foreign policy. At home, both favor authoritarianism, censorship, oppression and privileged cliques. Abroad both dream imperial dreams. Their countries haven’t profited from these quests while making needless enemies.

Putin could have settled for democracy, joined the EU, saved a ton of money on defense spending and developed a rich, diversified economy. Instead he chose to go backwards, imitating the Tsars in his xenophobia toward the West—a blend of inferiority and superiority complexes. No wonder Ukrainians have no desire to be dragged into “The Great Dark.”

GREAT VIDEO: The Syrian Army Before and After Battle

The first part of this taunting video shows laughing Syrian troops lined up in a huge convoy for battle. Then at about 2:20 minites we see the aftermaths of battles (obviously more than one) with large lines of captured POWs, followed by scattered bodies of regime fighters and ending with a gleeful rebel holding a head, followed by more heads.

It’s important to keep in mind that these are the truly Bad Guys responsible for the daily bombing and shelling of civilians, for routine field executions, for torture and rape and for dozens like Narbek, Baniyas, etc.

The following is a revised version of a shorter analysis posted two days ago.

REBELS APPEAR TO BE PLANNING SOMETHING BIG

The regime may feel overconfident right now but they should be worried about the relatively low rebel resistance compared to known rebel capacities based on manower advantages.

If the rebels actually have 25,000 to 45,000 rebel troops in the Qalmoun area why aren't they being fully empoyed. Maybe they've been shifted elsewhere. Or are they being held back for a surprise? So far most of the fighting has been done by JAN and ISIS who compose a rsmall portion of rebel forces and even many fighters from these groups are known to be elsewhere. The regime has been fighting too few fighters. A few hundred to a few thousand at best. Even so, rebels have inflicted substantial losses on the regime during its advance while tying down as many regime forces as possible. What damage might rebels inflict in Qalamoun with full forces engaged?

The situation in Qalamoun makes me think of Custer’s 200 men moving toward 4,000 indians sitting in the woods below in a situation were terrain and weather favored the other side. Hiding in abundant ravines, Indians darkened the skies with arrows that acted as mortars. When I visited the battle site the temperature was mid-nineties with Louisiana-style hunidity so bad my wife stayed in the car. I can imagine what is as like for Custer's troops in dark wool uniforms. The battle was a 20-minute "no contest." You can see when Custer's men tried to flee on foot. Like shabbiha war criminals encircled by JAN in in a building under heavy fire, these soldiers had to known their lives would end in few minutes.

In Qalamoun rebels may well be content merely with tying present regime forces down whle strking all over Syria and stretching regime air and manpower to the limit. Out of necessity, the regime has too many reliable forces concentrated in just two locaions (Qalamoun and wesern Damascus). Rebels know that and have the resources to exploit it.

The relative quiet in Quneitra, Daraa Province and East Ghouta over the last few days should worry Assad's generals, since no new obstacles placed by the regime can explain it. Have spare rebel forces there been shifted elsewhere or not? If so, how far? The same question applies to rebel forces in Qalamoun.

No doubt the regime has not doubt placed some informers among the rebels while the latter enjoy the same. If I were in rebel shoes, rather than arrest suspected agents, I'd misinform them about rebel intentions. This situation is becoming fascinating.

***

The recent nationwide information blackout imposed by the rebels is unprecedented and also suggests something is up. It also makes fact checking far more difficult.

In the last few days there were two interesting reports of rebel successes that haven't been repeated since. One reported rebels had destroyed five aircraft (three copters and two jets) at Kwers Airport. The other reported that a rebel unit sneaked into a Hezbollah dominated suburb and dispatched up to 50 enemy fighters with knives or silenced weapons.

Before the blackout, you could reasonably conclude from the lack of follow-ups that both reports were false. Now you can't. Perhaps someone on the rebel side got overenthusiastic, starting boasting and was told to shut up. The regime would hardly confirm such rebel successes.

There is at least some evidence (pre-blackout) that a highly stealthy elite unit is operating may be operating in the area. Someone managed to sneak into the heart of Republican Guard artillery positions on the western mountaintop and set off an explosive some weeks ago. That's entirely consistent with the second claim. Several months back there was a video of such a unit taking over a rebel position by stealth.

ARTICLE: Rouhani’s Economic Battles with the IRGC

http://defenddemocracy.org/media-hit/rouhanis-economic-battles-with-the-irgc/


As long as the IRCG retains special economic privileges, the IRI’s economy cannot advance or diversify. The unfair competition also discourages the foreign investment Iran needs. Naturally generals oppose such economic reforms. Their privileges are partly a bribe to the generals for their help in suppressing any demands for democracy, human rights, an end to censorship, etc.

The generals oppose any opening with the West or any warmer relationships for selfish reasons, as is true for the most hardline and enriched clerics as well. Less tension would undermine the general’s raison d’etre and deflate their claims of importance. Peace tends to create layoffs, especially among excess officers.

Khamenei is caught in a quandary here. No doubt he’d prefer the economy improve but, as a control freak, he fears any threat to his own arbitrary powers.

The following article is so good it should be handing on the wall of every Sunni Home in Syria from Morocco to Pakistan—including the entire Caucausus:

TOP 13 ASSAD CRIMES

This is by far the best expose you'll ever come across--a concise nutshell summary. Check out the list and see if you disagree with anything. Most items feature a related photo.

Obama the Magnificent (excuse the sarcasm) needs to read this list to understant why the rebels are so resistent to sittting down at the proposed Putin Conference with these monsters.

Article: WHY IS OBAMA COURTING HESBOLLAH?

Obama really loves to smootch with the Bad Boys. When not cuddled up in a corner with Putin, he’s nuzzling the ear of Nasrallah and whispering sweet nothings.

This president seems to have forgotten that Hezbollah and Iran arranged the murder of over 200 US marines serving as UN peacekeepers in Baghdad. He probably finds the massacres of civilians in Nabek hysterically funny.

BREAKING NEWS: Rebels have eliminated another regime brigade and seized its base.

Brigade 15 in Inkhill has been liberated according to Yalla Souriya.

Inkhill is a highly strategic position in northern Daraa Province, meaning rebels in that province of gotten closer to regime positions in the southwestern Damascus suburbs.

Rebels have the option of advancing north, breaking a brutal siege there and cutting off Damascus/Lebanon road OR advancing east into Sweida Province where the regime has many vulnerable airfields and from which they can link up with forces in East Ghouta.
